Florida State junior DE Bjoern Werner has dropped around 10-12 pounds this season in the effort to get up the field faster.

Many questioned the move since Werner was so productive last year, specifically at holding the edge and bull rushing tackles, but we believe he looks even more explosive off the edge, specifically on his first step burst. Thus far the junior has nine tackles for loss, including 6.5 sacks, but faces his first real competition this Saturday against Clemson. A top-15 selection is not out of the question.

Clemson LB Stephone Anthony "had a phenomenal day" at Thursday's pro day, wrote TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"He only did position drills but teams were impressed with his overall performance, especially his cover skills," Pauline wrote. "Anthony met with the Minnesota Vikings and San Francisco 49ers yesterday before having dinner with the Philadelphia Eagles." Let's return to Pauline for a stock check on Anthony: "Anthony has been on a straight shot north up draft boards since September. He stood out during the Senior Bowl, then looked terrific at the Combine and capped it off today at pro day. How high will Anthony be selected? The second round seems like a lock but it now looks as though he'll be chosen in the early to middle part of the frame. That poses a problem for a team like the Green Bay Packers, who've shown a lot of interest in the linebacker." Anthony has some serious steam behind him at the moment.

Nebraska EDGE rusher Randy Gregory weighed 238 lbs at his pro day on Thursday.

This is "only" three pounds heavier than the NFL Combine. Some excuses were made before the Combine, saying Gregory was sick and dropped down from over 240 lbs. It seems like this is Gregory's playing weight, at least for now. He displayed a lot of functional strength for someone of this size, but teams have minimums and types. Gregory's lack of weight might limit those interested, as crazy at that sounds.

Clemson EDGE rusher Vic Beasley weighed in at 246 lbs during Thursday's pro day.

This matches Beasley's Combine weigh in. The edge rusher reportedly weighed in for scouts a 220 lbs last spring, then played the season around 230-235 lbs. Obviously Beasley will receive the "tweener" label form many evaluators, but he has the talent to help every team in the NFL.

USC DL Leonard Williams only recorded one QB hit and two hurries on 3rd and long snaps in 2014, according to PFF.

He also did not register a sack in this area. Obviously it is a very select number of snaps, but it could be a number worthy of your attention. Despite the glowing praise Williams receives, Rotoworld and other evaluators have questioned the DL's explosiveness to disrupt. Some place that on a reactive scheme, but Williams tested like an average athlete. That is not to say Williams isn't a good prospect. He absolutely is thanks to powerful hands, length and ability to shed.

ESPN's Mel Kiper believes Miami WR Phillip Dorsett has "star" written all over him.

"Great speed. Tremendously explosive," Kiper says. Dorsett certainly shines in one area, and that is straight line speed. He can stretch out a defense in that area. A question is if you can count on him to win underneath and when contested. He might be a role player in our eyes, which there is nothing wrong with, but Kiper recently said Dorsett is clearly in the first-round mix.

A "number of scouts" prefer Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson over Brett Hundley and Bryce Petty, according to Phil Savage.

This does not surprise us at all. Somewhat in the same vein as Jameis Winston in terms of "translatable concepts," Grayson worked through progressions under Jim McElwain. McElwain did keep it simple (which more coaches should do), but asked his quarterbacks to move in the pocket, move their launching point and make decisions before and after the snap.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah believes a team "is going to get a steal" in Kansas State WR Tyler Lockett.

Jeremiah says Lockett is "always open" while looking at the depth of this receiver class. Lockett flashes playing big despite a smaller frame, but he is better when creating separation with burst and quickness. A second day selection is likely in Lockett's future.

The Patriots staff, including HC Bill Belichick, put Georgia WR Chris Conley through an on-campus workout on Wednesday.

Georgia's pro day is not until March 18, but teams can visit prospects on campus as often as they want. It is one way teams work around the 30 allotted in-house visits. Conley blew up the Combine with his combination of straight-line speed and explosive jumps, but his change of direction was well below average. We wonder how high Conley will go in the draft, and if the third-round is a legitimate possibility.

The sixth season of Jon Gruden’s "QB Camp" will feature five quarterbacks.

Participants include Jameis Winston of Florida State, Marcus Mariota of Oregon, Bryce Petty of Baylor, Brett Hundley of UCLA, and Garrett Grayson of Colorado State. The show, which featured nine quarterback prospects in 2014, premieres Tuesday, April 7 at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2. No word on why the network cut back on profiles, but Sean Mannion, Brandon Bridge, Cody Fajardo, Bryan Bennett and others would probably like an explanation.

NFL Films' Greg Cosell called Georgia RB Todd Gurley "the best back in the draft."

"I like Gurley more (than Melvin Gordon)," Cosell said. "Gurley, to me, has elements of Steven Jackson in his prime and Marshawn Lynch. He's that kind of runner. He's got an excellent combination of size, power, short-area quickness and burst, and top-end acceleration. I like Gurley a lot. And he looks like an NFL foundation back. I think he can be the starting point of an NFL offense." You already know we're on the same page, as perhaps no analyst or news organization is as high on Gurley as Rotoworld, which ranks the 20-year-old No. 5 overall. "A complete back who can be the foundation of an offense," wrote lead site draft analyst Josh Norris. "Will pick up the yards blocked for him and also create on his own, both after contact and beating defenders' angles. Agility to weave between lanes without wasted movement is a plus. Comfortable as a receiver on screens with patience to make most of blocks."

Purdue senior RB Akeem Hunt clocked a 4.37 second 40 and a 3.96 second short shuttle at his pro day Wednesday.

"Hunt was very impressive today," TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline wrote. In addition to his stopwatch times, Hunt leaped to a vertical jump of 37 1/2 inches and a broad jump of 10-2. "During drills, he looked outstanding at catching the ball," Pauline wrote. "Like Corey Grant of Auburn, Hunt is a legitimate triple-threat skill player with the ability to carry the ball around the perimeter, catch the ball out of the backfield, or line up and return kicks or punts. Someone will get a steal in the late rounds or as an undrafted FA with him." Pauline compared Hunt to Darren Sproles in early October, writing that despite being just 5-foot-8, 185 pounds, Hunt "plays big" and has a similar style to the Eagles' runner.
