Cleveland Browns: Deiondre' Hall, CB, Northern Iowa
The Browns could use some cornerback competition.
Hall has excellent size to be an NFL cornerback and was very impressive at the Senior Bowl. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder is a physical corner who has some Richard Sherman bulldog to his game. Scouts say they love Hall's length and toughness. He really stood out for Northern Iowa as he had six interceptions as a senior. Northern Iowa didn't play a top program in 2015, so performing well against more talented receivers was critical for Hall.
Cleveland Browns: Miles Killebrew, S, Southern Utah
Cleveland could use some safety depth.
Killebrew is another small-school defensive back who earned an invitation to the Senior Bowl. The 6-foot-1, 217-pounder is a big, long safety who showcased his tackling skills with 132 stops as a senior. He also had seven passes broken up and no interceptions, but he notched three picks as a junior. At the Senior Bowl, Killebrew showed he is a work in progress as needs to develop his instincts and avoid taking false steps.
Dallas Cowboys: Dak Prescott, QB, Mississippi State
If Prescott gets passed on by the Broncos, I think he could slip to the third day of the 2016 NFL Draft. Dallas has shown a lot of interest in Prescott and he could be a good understudy for Tony Romo.
Prescott (6-2, 226) completed 66 percent of his passes in 2015 for 3,793 yards with 29 touchdowns and five interceptions. On the ground, he totaled 588 yards with 10 scores. Prescott hurt defenses with his arm and legs while showing improved accuracy and ability to function as a pocket-passer.
Prescott completed 61 percent of his passes for 2,996 yards with 24 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 2014. He also ran for 939 yards (4.8 average) with 13 touchdowns. Teams really like Prescott's leadership skills, football I.Q., and character.
San Diego Chargers: Jerell Adams, TE, South Carolina
The Chargers need a backup tight end. Ladarius Green left in free agency and Antonio Gates is aging. Here's an understudy.
At the combine, Adams had an excellent workout to really help his draft stock. He turned in the fastest 40 time of any tight end and showed some nice athleticism in the field work. Adams had a solid week at the Senior Bowl, and given the weak tight end class, he could be drafted earlier than expected.
Adams took over for Rory Anderson in 2015 and had a good season despite poor quarterback play at South Carolina. Adams totaled 28 catches for 421 yards with three touchdowns on the year. As a junior (21-279-1) and sophomore (13-187-2), he had modest contributions.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Harlan Miller, CB, Southeastern Louisiana
The Jaguars grab some cornerback depth and competition. Prince Amukamara only signed a 1-year contract.
Miller was one of the small-school defensive backs to take advantage of the opportunity to impress at the Senior Bowl. He had a strong week in Mobile and illustrated coverage skills for the NFL. Miller turned in an excellent senior year with four interceptions, 10 passes broken up, and 49 tackles. He had three interceptions as a junior and four as a sophomore.
Miller (5-11, 182) has decent height, but he needs to fill out his frame. He ran a very slow 40 at the combine, and that could hurt him come draft day.
Baltimore Ravens: Sebastian Tretola, G, Arkansas
The Ravens lost Kelechi Osemele in free agency. Here's a nasty road-grading blocker to help take his place.
The 6-foot-5, 334-pound Tretola is a player who impressed evaluators in 2015. He did a good job of opening holes in the ground game for Alex Collins. Sources tipped me off early on that Tretola was a prospect they liked, and he is a road-grading run blocker who is tremendous at getting movement at the point of attack. Tretola can blast defenders off the ball. His areas for improvement would be in pass protection and playing in space.
San Francisco 49ers: Tyler Johnstone, OT, Oregon
The 49ers grab some offensive tackle depth with another Duck for Chip Kelly.
Johnstone (6-5, 301) was respectable in 2015 after missing all of 2014. He is a quick, athletic and nimble blocker who fit Oregon's system well. For the NFL, Johnstone needs more power as he can get pushed around. That was evident against Michigan State and in other contests. He had a decent performance at the combine.
Pick change; previously B.J. Goodson, LB
Chicago Bears: Dadi Nicolas, OLB, Virginia Tech
The Bears continue to add pieces to their defense and having another pass-rusher would make sense.
Nicolas is a dangerous edge rusher who will have to get stronger and improve his run defense for the NFL. The 6-foot-3, 235-pounder will have to be a situational pass-rusher early in his career, but he is a natural edge rusher with a nose for the quarterback. In 2015, Nicolas totaled 45 tackles, 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and two passes broken up. He totaled 72 tackles with 18.5 tackles for a loss and nine sacks in 2014.
Miami Dolphins: James Bradberry, CB/S, Samford
The Dolphins could use another safety option to go with Reshad Jones. Walt Aikens is a converted corner and a pick of the prior regime.
Jaquiski Tartt represented Samford at the Senior Bowl last year, and this year, it was Bradberry. The 6-foot-3, 236-pounder has a NFL skill set with size and speed. The senior recorded 45 tackles with 11 passes broken up and two interceptions in 2015. He had two interceptions in his junior, sophomore and freshman years.
Bradberry's steady play earned him an invitation to Mobile, and he had a respectable week. Bradberry has prototypical size for the next level and could fit as a press-man cornerback or a free safety; the latter is probably more likely.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Charone Peake, WR, Clemson
The Buccaneers could use an eventual replacement for Vincent Jackson.
Peake had 44 catches for 617 yards and five touchdowns in 2015. His play was somewhat underwhelming, but he has upside to develop. A torn ACL robbed Peake of the 2014 season. The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder has speed, size and athleticism.
New York Giants: Malcolm Mitchell, WR, Georgia
The Giants grab some wide receiver talent in case Victor Cruz doesn't return to his previous form.
Mitchell (5-11, 198) had an electric 40 time at the combine (4.45) and also worked out as a defensive back. The senior totaled 58 catches for 865 yards and five touchdowns in 2015. Injuries robbed him of the 2013 season and part of the 2014 campaign. Otherwise, he might be a second-day pick.
Los Angeles Rams: Josh Perry, ILB, Ohio State
After cutting James Laurinaitis, the Rams could use some inside linebacker depth.
Perry (6-3, 253) recorded 105 tackles with 7.5 tackles for a loss, 3.5 sacks and three passes broken up in 2015. He is a tough run defender who could be a two-down contributor in the NFL. In 2014, Perry totaled 124 tackles with 8.5 tackles for a loss, three sacks, two passes batted and an interception. He had 64 tackles in 2013.
Detroit Lions: KeiVarae Russell, CB, Notre Dame
The Lions could use some secondary depth and have shown interest in Russell.
In 2015, Russell had 60 tackles, four passes broken up, two interceptions and one sack before a fractured tibia ended his season early. The 5-foot-11, 190-pounder has some natural ability. He is fast enough to maintain coverage with receivers in and out of their breaks, but also plays bigger than his listed size.
Russell missed 2014 over an academic suspension. In his debut season, he had 58 tackles with two interceptions and two passes broken up. Russell continued his strong play for the Fighting Irish in 2013. The sophomore totaled 51 tackles, one interception and eight passes broken up that year.
New Orleans Saints: Christian Westerman, G, Arizona State
New Orleans traded Ben Grubbs last offseason and cut Jahri Evans this year. Adding some young guard talent is necessary.
Westerman (6-4, 305) has physical talent with a combination of strength and some athleticism. He was a reliable blocker for the Sun Devils over the past few seasons. Westerman had an up-and-down Senior Bowl, but was very good at the combine.
Los Angeles Rams: Graham Glasgow, C/G, Michigan
The Rams could use more competition on the inside of their line.
Glasgow had great weeks at the Senior Bowl and East-West Shrine to really help his draft stock. He showed strength, some athleticism, awareness and toughness. At Michigan, Glasgow started 37 games with experience at guard and center. The 6-foot-6, 306-pounder could compete quickly in the NFL.
Oakland Raiders: Perez Ford, OLB, Northern Illinois
The Raiders need could use some linebacker depth and have taken a liking to Ford.
Ford is a sleeper prospect who generated interest from teams and has been taking a number of pre-draft visits. He is a fast linebacker who is versatile. In 2015, Ford totaled 42 tackles with 6.5 for a loss, five sacks, and a forced fumble. He had similar production the previous season with 57 stops, five sacks, nine tackles for a loss and three forced fumbles. Ford had 4.5 sacks as a sophomore. Sources say Ford could go in the fifth or sixth round.
Atlanta Falcons: Tajaé Sharpe, WR, Massachusetts
The Falcons signed Mohamed Sanu, but it wouldn't hurt to add more talent to improve their receiving corps.
Sources from multiple teams were raving about Sharpe at the East-West Shrine. The 6-foot-2, 189-pounder has quickness to go with good size and length. Sharpe had a superb week and caught the heck out of ball. As one scout said, "He's been dominating these DBs all week." Sharpe gets separation and is a smooth receiver. He really helped his draft stock at the East-West Shrine.
The senior had 111 receptions for 1,319 yards with five touchdowns in 2015, so he has good production as well. One team said Sharpe is probably an early third-day pick and shouldn't go any lower than the fifth round.
Indianapolis Colts: Marshaun Coprich, RB, Illinois State
The Colts need a running back upgrade over the aging Frank Gore. Sources say they like Coprich.
Coprich (5-8, 207) is a fast back with a ton of production over the past two seasons. The senior averaged 6.1 yards per carry for 1,967 yards with 23 touchdowns in 2015. The previous season, he averaged 6.1 yards per carry for 2,274 yards and 27 touchdowns. Coprich showed his speed with a 4.47-second time in the 40-yard dash at the combine.
Buffalo Bills: Kevin Hogan, QB, Stanford
The Bills grab some quarterback competition.
As a senior, Hogan completed 68 percent of his passes for 2,867 yards with 27 touchdowns and eight interceptions. In his good games, he looked like an early rounder; in his bad games, he looked like an undrafted free agent. Hogan has a good enough skill set to play as a pro, but looks more like a backup-caliber signal-caller in the NFL. Sources said they like Hogan's intelligence to quickly master the playbook and become a quality backup quarterback early.
New York Jets: Will Redmond, CB, Missisippi State
The Jets could use some cornerback depth after cutting Antonio Cromartie.
Redmond (5-11, 182) played well for the Bulldogs in 2015, making 25 tackles, two interceptions and one pass broken up before a season-ending injury due to a torn ACL. If it weren't for the injury, Redmond would probably be an early rounder. He is a tough corner who has the versatility to play on the outside or in the slot. In 2014, Redmond racked up 51 tackles with five passes broken up and three interceptions.
Houston Texans: Caleb Benenoch, OT, UCLA
Houston could use some offensive tackle depth with Duane Brown coming off a serious injury and aging.
Benenoch (6-5, 311) played well for the Bruins in 2015. His run blocking is definitely ahead of his pass protection, but he has some athletic upside. That could be seen in Indianapolis. Benenoch had a strong combine performance where he ran faster than expected.
Benenoch could be a sleeper pick who turns into a good NFL right tackle. He broke into the starting lineup as a freshman in 2013 and remained a starter in 2014.
Washington Redskins: Jonathan Williams, RB, Arkansas
The Redskins grab some running back depth behind Matt Jones. Williams also is similar to former Bucs running back Cadillac Williams, who Jay Gruden and other Redskins assistants worked with, plus Redskins President Bruce Allen drafted Cadillac for Tampa Bay.
Williams (5-10, 219) injured his foot in a preseason scrimmage and was said to be out 4-5 months. He never played in 2015. The year before, Williams ran for 1,190 yards (5.6 average) and 12 touchdowns on only 211 carries while Alex Collins was the lead back. Williams also had 11 receptions for 65 yards and two scores. He is a physical runner who could enter the NFL with fresh legs.
Minnesota Vikings: Vadal Alexander, G/OT, LSU
The Vikings grab a run-blocking offensive lineman for depth.
The 6-foot-5, 326-pound Alexander is a massive blocker who can open holes at the point of attack. He played well at guard in 2014 as an impactful run blocker and reliable pass protector. Alexander played right tackle as a senior, but guard looks better as a long-term home in the NFL. He struggled in pass protection on a few plays during 2015 and allowed some sacks in the early going, but was better toward the end of the year. Some teams could think of keeping him at right tackle.
Cincinnati Bengals: Tyvis Powell, S, Ohio State
The Bengals could use a some safety depth since Reggie Nelson left Cincinnati.
Powell (6-2, 209) has good size for the NFL and was a productive 2-year starter for the Buckeyes. In 2015, he had 71 tackles with three passes broken up and three interceptions. The previous season, he had 76 tackles with four breakups and four interceptions. Powell could be a riser throughout the draft process.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Jatavis Brown, OLB, Akron
Pittsburgh could use some edge-rushing depth and a player to push their young pass-rushers.
Brown has been a late-riser in the draft process. He was all over the field and a star at Akron. In 2015, Brown had 116 tackles with 20 for a loss, 12 sacks, four forced fumbles, and one interception. He totaled 99 tackles with 14.5 for a loss and four sacks during the previous year.
Brown could get drafted in the mid-rounds. He would be a nice fit as a Will (weakside) linebacker in a 4-3 defense.
Seattle Seahawks: Jake Brendel, C, UCLA
The Seahawks traded Max Unger away last offseason and, not surprisingly, their center play wasn't as strong. Brendel could upgrade their competition at the position.
Brendel (6-4, 303) played well for UCLA the past few seasons, but could use more power for the NFL. At the East-West Shrine, Brendel had a quality week and did well as a run blocker and pass protector. He also had a solid performance at the combine.
Green Bay Packers: Paul Perkins, RB, UCLA
The Packers could use some running back depth with Eddie Lacy in a contract year.
Perkins (5-11, 210) was a tough runner for UCLA over the past few seasons. He has a nice combination of strength and speed. As a junior in 2015, Perkins averaged 5.7 yards per carry for 1,343 yards with 14 touchdowns. He also had 30 catches for 242 yards and a score. As a sophomore, Perkins averaged 6.3 yards for 1,575 yards with nine touchdowns. He caught 26 passes for 201 yards with two scores.
Kansas City Chiefs: Victor Ochi, LB, Stony Brook
The Chiefs grab an understudy for Tamba Hali. It wouldn't hurt to add some pass-rushing depth with Justin Houston's injury.
Throughout the East-West Shrine, Ochi (6-2, 245) grabbed one's attention with his great get-off and pure speed around the edge. He did very well in the pass-rushing one-on-ones as his lightning first-step made him very hard for blockers to reach.
If Ochi can make a NFL roster, his role would probably be as a situational pass-rusher to start out his career. While he has functional upper body strength, Ochi is still too undersized to be a three-down edge defender.
Chicago Bears: Jalen Mills, S, LSU
The Bears use some secondary depth and competition.
Mills played in seven games during 2015, totaling 30 tackles and three passes broken up. He flashed in previous seasons as a corner and safety. Mills (6-0, 191) needs to add weight to tackle as a free safety in the NFL. He recorded 62 tackles with five passes broken up and an interception in 2014. Mills totaled 67 tackles, three passes broken up, three sacks and three interceptions in 2013.
Arizona Cardinals: Adam Gotsis, DL, Georgia Tech
The Cardinals grab some defensive line and five-technique depth.
The 6-foot-4, 287-pounder has a nice skill set. As a senior, he had 31 tackles with five tackles for a loss and three sacks. His production was consistent with 30+ tackles as a junior and sophomore. He also had three sacks as a junior and 5.5 as a sophomore. Gotsis could fit as a 3-4 defensive end or a tackle in a 4-3 defense. For the latter, he should add some weight.
Carolina Panthers: Josh Ferguson, RB, Illinois
The Panthers grab some running back competition behind Jonathan Stewart.
Sources have said that Ferguson has impressed them as a fast running back who can contribute as a receiver and on special teams. Over 2014 and 2013, Ferguson averaged more than five yards per carry for over 700 yards. Each season, he caught 50 passes as well. Those 100 passes included six touchdowns.
Ferguson was banged up with a shoulder injury in 2015, but averaged 5.5 yards per carry for 708 yards and three touchdowns. He also recorded 38 receptions for 280 yards and two scores. Sources say that the 5-foot-9, 198-pounder could end up going as high as the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
Baltimore Ravens: Jacoby Brissett, QB, N.C. State
The Ravens could use a backup quarterback behind Joe Flacco. Ryan Mallett can't be relied on.
Brissett is a thick-bodied, quality-armed pocket passer who has some athleticism. The 6-foot-3, 236-pounder doesn't get a lot of attention, but there is a buzz building about him in NFL circles.
Brissett completed 60 percent of his passes for 2,662 yards with 20 touchdowns and six interceptions during the 2015 regular season. As a junior, he completed 60 percent of his passes for 2,606 yards with 23 touchdowns and five interceptions. In 2011 and 2012, Brissett was a backup at Florida. Former Gators head coach Will Muschamp mistakenly chose Jeff Driskel instead of Brissett to be the starter, and that paved the way for Brissett to transfer.
Green Bay Packers: Matt Ioannidis, DT, Temple
The Packers grab some more defensive line talent.
Ioannidis (6-3, 306) might be a second-day pick in most drafts, but the depth of the defensive line prospects this year could push him into Day 3. Ioannidis was a steady defender for Temple over the past three seasons with 3.5 sacks as a sophomore and then 3.5 sacks per year as a junior and senior. He also had 40 tackles with 11.5 for a loss in 2015. In 2014, Ioannidis totaled 47 stops with 11 for a loss. He could also fit as a five-technique in a 3-4 defense.
Baltimore Ravens: Nick Kwiatkoski, LB, West Virginia
The Ravens cut Daryl Smith while Arthur Brown hasn't panned out yet. Here's some inside linebacker depth.
In 2015, Kwiatkoski (6-1, 241) recorded 86 tackles with 10 for a loss, three sacks, seven passes batted, three interceptions and a forced fumble. It was an intriguing year from the Mountaineer standout that earned him an invitation to the Senior Bowl. He had a solid week in Mobile and showed some pass-coverage skills. As a junior, Kwiatkoski totaled 103 tackles with 11.5 for a loss and four passes broken up.
San Francisco 49ers: Aaron Burbridge, WR, Michigan State
The 49ers could use multiple receiving talents for Chip Kelly.
Burbridge (6-1, 208) had meager career production before breaking out in 2015. The senior established himself as the Spartans' No. 1 receiver and was very impressive. Burbridge has reliable hands, runs quality routes, has quickness and can get some yards after the catch. On the year, he totaled 85 catches for 1,258 yards with seven touchdowns. Those are huge increases over his junior (29-358), sophomore (22-194) and freshman years (29-364).
Baltimore Ravens: Rashard Higgins, WR, Colorado State
The Ravens could use more wide receiver talent. Here's an understudy for Steve Smith.
Higgins (6-1, 196) had 75 catches 1,062 yards and eight touchdowns in 2015. He is a smooth, quick receiver who combines good route-running with reliable hands. If Higgins were thicker, he would be second-day pick.
As a sophomore, Higgins had a huge year with Garrett Grayson at quarterback under head coach Jim McElwain. Higgins totaled 96 passes for 1,750 yards and 17 touchdowns in 2014.
Dallas Cowboys: Alex McCalister, OLB, Florida
The Cowboys grab another edge rusher for their sub package.
McCalister was an effective situational pass-rusher for Florida during the past few seasons. He is fast off the edge with nice length and athleticism. Sources say they are grading McCalister (6-6, 239) in the mid-rounds and like his potential to be a role player quickly. I know a few teams that are talking about him for their fourth-round pick.
In 2015, McCalister totaled 26 tackles with 9.5 for a loss and 6.5 sacks in nine games. He had 23 tackles with six sacks in 2014. McCalister had some off-the-field concerns, but sources have said it was very minor and McCalister is a good kid.
Denver Broncos: B.J. Goodson, LB, Clemson
The Broncos could use some inside linebacker depth after losing Danny Trevathan.
Goodson didn't see the field much until his senior year, but in 2015, he made the most of his opportunity with 108 tackles, 14 for a loss, 5.5 sacks, three passes batted, two interceptions and a forced fumble. Goodson (6-1, 242) has a nice mix of size and speed. He could easily go on Day 2 of the 2016 NFL Draft.
Pick change; previously Eric Murray, CB
Green Bay Packers: Kolby Listenbee, WR, TCU
The Packers grab some wide receiver depth, and Listenbee could give them a vertical threat.
Sources say that Listenbee (6-0, 197) is a one-trick pony as a vertical speed receiver. He had a tremendous 40-yard dash time of 4.35 seconds at the combine. In 2015, Listenbee caught 30 passes for 597 yards (20.6 average) with five touchdowns as the No. 2 receiver to Josh Doctson.
One team told WalterFootball.com that they have a fifth-round grade on Listenbee, but in speaking to other teams, some like him more and think he should go a round or two higher. In 2014, Listenbee recorded 41 catches for 753 yards with four touchdowns.
Cleveland Browns: Nick Vannett, TE, Ohio State
The Browns need a backup tight end, plus Vannett, at least, should be a serviceable blocker.
In 2015, Vannett had 19 receptions for 162 yards. Ohio State favors throwing to its receivers, but Vannett gave credence to not passing him the ball as he flashed some stone hands with a lot of drops at the Senior Bowl. He is a strong blocker and was an asset in the Buckeyes' ground game, so for the NFL, he should be a blocking 'Y' tight end.
Buffalo Bills: Roberto Aguayo, K, Florida State
The Bills could use a kicker.
Aguayo is one of the top kickers in college football history and is a three-time First-Team All-American. He connected on 81 percent, 90 percent and 96 percent of his field goal attempts over the past three seasons, respectively. Aguayo has a strong leg and never missed an extra point over three years. With the change of the NFL's extra-point rules, Aguayo is even more valuable. He is a rare prospect who could go in the early rounds on the third day of the draft.
