An anonymous scout told Bob McGinn Football that Tennessee RB John Kelly was "totally underutilized" in his time at Tennessee.

The full quote: "He was totally underutilized at Tennessee. He’s a good little player." Another scout believes that Kelly (5'9/216) "runs like a big back" but notes that players who run like big backs who aren't tend to get hurt. The Volunteer tailback appears to be picking up some steam as we get closer to the draft, and he could go early on Day 3.

FanRag Sports draft analyst Jon Ledyard tweets that he wouldn't be surprised if Oklahoma TE Mark Andrews went outside the top 100 picks.

Andrews (6'5/256) had some first-round hype in the winter, but that was always silly; he's not near athletic enough at that position to be a top 32 pick. Ledyard notes that teams are concerned about the former Sooner's athleticism, and there's likely concerns about the fact that Lincoln Riley's offense makes everyone look good. That's not say Andrews is a bad prospect -- on the contrary -- but he makes much more sense as an early Day 3 pick than one who goes on the first day or early on Day 2.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Northwestern RB Justin Jackson to the Buffalo Bills' Taiwan Jones.

Jackson (6'0/192) was a ludicrously productive back in college who rushed for 5,440 yards and 41 touchdowns with 122 catches over his career. "Jackson is a productive, durable runner with the foot quickness and agility to make defenders miss on all levels of the field, but has a thin frame that could turn some teams off," Zierlein wrote. "While Jackson carried a heavy workload in college, he's unlikely to find that opportunity in the pros. Jackson's elusiveness gives him a shot at a backup role, but he will need to improve as a third-down option." Jackson is a late-round favorite of Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom and Mark Lindquist. He tested in the 73rd percentile at the NFL Scouting Combine and has obvious receiving chops. He should develop into a quality committee back.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Colorado RB Phillip Lindsay to NFL RB Chris Thompson.

This is a compliment we can get on board with, because their style of player is very similiar. Both catch the ball out of the backfield exceptionally well, and despite being small of stature -- Lindsay measured at 5-foot-7, 184-pounds -- they are more effective runners between the tackles than you might anticipate. Zierlein projects Lindsay to go at the end of Day 3, and he could be great value there as a ready-to-play third-down back.

FanRag Sports draft analyst Jon Ledyard reports that Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown has been working out with Florida WR Antonio Callaway.

Brown reportedly has told some that he "sees some of himself" in Callaway, and that he's taken the talented wide receiver under his swing. Ledyard reports what many have; that Callaway's stock is very much in flux because of his off-field concerns. He does say that the Bengals, Colts and Jets have shown interest in the Day 3 range. We've seen the Bengals take chances on talents like Callaway before -- for better or for worse -- so we're not shocked to hear them attached to the volatile wideout.

An anonymous scout told Bob McGinn Football that Miami (FL) RB Mark Walton should have stayed in school.

"He should have stayed in school," the scout said. "He’s not very good. Just kind of a one-speed guy and gets tackled easily. No elusiveness." Yikes. McGinn did get another quality report from another anonymous scout, saying that Walton has a "PHD in football" and that he's "explosive." Walton (5'10/202) appears to be one of the more divisive backs in this class. He could go anywhere from the end of the third to the end of Day 3.
