LSU QB Brandon Harris announced his transfer to UNC.
The Tar Heels lost Mitchell Trubisky to the NFL draft and likely are in need of a starter next season. That might be Harris or it might not, since the longtime LSU passer never performed at a high level. Malik Zaire is still waiting to make his decision as well. Harris is eligible to play immediately.
Dolphins beat writer Armando Salguero spoke with one person in the organization who said there is a "zero percent chance" Miami selects Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon in the upcoming draft.
Expect a number of similar statements to leak out in the coming weeks, as teams already know if Mixon will be on or off their board. The talented running back will visit a large amount of teams, and even more will travel to Oklahoma for private sessions, in the hopes of getting to know Mixon on a better level.
Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly was cleared by doctors to complete a pro day throwing session of 35-45 plays.
Kelly is working back from an ACL injury, which kept him out of the Senior Bowl. Kelly also had his NFL Combine invite rescinded, and Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman recently said Kelly's "baggage" is "considerably worse than what has been reported," but elected to not expand on that statement. Many respected evaluators have plenty of positive things to say about Kelly's game, including Matt Waldman.
ESPN's Louis Riddick believes Michigan S Jabrill Peppers "will be a great pro."
Riddick calls the questions about Peppers' deep field play "mis-guided." Peppers might be the most divisive prospect in the entire class, and much of that is due to his utilization at Michigan. Peppers acted like a linebacker with the Wolverines, occupying the short and intermediate areas of the field, rather than as a safety who would roam intermediate and deeper portions. Plus, Peppers in dropping into coverage from the linebacker spot versus safety. Peppers will have plenty of fans in NFL circles.
Purdue WR DeAngelo Yancey will visit the Texans in mid-April.
This will be six visits for Yancey, which is quite a feat for a non-Combine receiver. Yancey impressed during East-West Shrine week and could absolutely draw a draftable grade.
The Chargers put Vanderbilt DL Adam Butler through a private workout.
We have not watched Butler, but he might grab evaluators attention while focusing on Zach Cunningham. Absolutely nothing stood out on butler's pro day workout after not being invited to the combine. He could be a Chargers UDFA target.
