Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay believes UNC senior DT Sylvester Williams "put on a clinic" Thursday night against Virginia.

McShay says Williams displayed "good first-step quickness and the consistent ability to strike and press blockers into their own backfield." He notes that the senior needs cut back on attempted swim moves, but the weight loss from over the summer has helped Williams' quick feet. Some, like Scouts Inc. for example, love Williams' future while we question if he is more than a day two selection. He is the 13th overall prospect on Scouts Inc.'s board.

Arkansas junior RB Rawleigh Williams III was carted off the field during Saturday's spring game with what the program is calling a "stinger."

After being carted off the field during Saturday's spring game, Williams was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure. Addressing the injury, Arkansas HC Bret Bielema said, "We’ll evaluate what the medical people tell us and then we’ll have a conversation together and only do what’s right for Rawleigh." Bielema indicated that this scare with Williams "seems to be unrelated" to the 2015 neck surgery which sidelined the 5-foot-10, 205-pounder in the autumn of that year. Williams rushed for 1,326 yards and 12 touchdowns during the past campaign. Given the recency of this newest spring injury, a timetable for Williams' return to football activities has not yet been laid out.

LSU junior edge rusher Arden Key tweeted that he will not be sitting out the 2017 season.

Key has been away from the team since mid-February due to what Tigers HC Ed Orgeron referred to as "personal reasons." Per Key's father, the LSU star is not dealing with any sort of injury or health concern. While Key is healthy, it is not quite clear when he might be rejoining the team -- Orgeron said in February that he would be back "at the appropriate time" but offered no timetable. In one additional note regarding the potential 2018 top-10 pick, he has been packing on the pounds this offseason. After being listed at 6-foot-6, 238 pounds for the past season, Key recently tweeted out that he is "255 and ready." Expect further updates on his availability and return date over the coming months.

Broncos selected Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly with the No. 253 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Kelly (6’2/224) arrived at Clemson as a top-five quarterback recruit only to tear his left ACL as a freshman and clash with coaches, resulting in an ouster from the program. Kelly paid his dues at JUCO, then started for two years at Ole Miss, posting a 50:21 TD-to-INT ratio, 63.9% completion rate, and 8.5 YPA across 22 games, adding 15 rushing scores. At Ole Miss, Kelly encountered several more off-field issues and tore his right ACL last November, then underwent surgery on his throwing wrist before the draft. Still an intriguing long-term prospect, Kelly has has arm talent, toughness, and playmaking ability. While very much a project, Kelly has starter upside.

Lions selected Miami QB Brad Kaaya with the No. 215 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Kaaya (6’4/214) turned pro as a true junior after making 38 starts at Miami, compiling a 19-19 career record with a pedestrian 60.6% completion rate, 8.15 YPA, and 69:24 TD-to-INT ratio. A timing-and-rhythm passer who played in a pro-style offense at Miami, Kaaya’s tape reveals sub-par arm strength and ball location. Kaaya also showed a tendency to panic under duress, persistently falling into back-foot throws. A mechanical pocket passer lacking standout physical traits, Kaaya’s plus smarts (34 Wonderlic score), football IQ, and intangibles are his calling cards. He’s an NFL backup.

Browns selected Florida DL Caleb Brantley with the No. 185 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Brantley (6’3/307) made 22 starts in three seasons at Florida managing 20 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles. SEC coaches voted him second-team all-conference in 2016. Although Brantley’s production doesn’t pop off the stat sheet, his tape pops with country strength and an ability to shoot gaps in double teams. Similar to Patriots DT Malcom Brown, Brantley is a scheme-versatile prospect capable of anchoring at nose and pushing the pocket at three technique. Unfortunately, Brantley was charged with battery last week for allegedly knocking a woman unconscious. He was a likely day-two pick before the arrest.

Colts selected USF RB Marlon Mack with the No. 143 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Mack (5’11/213) needed only three college seasons to set all-time records in rushing yards (3,609), all-purpose yards (4,107), and touchdowns (33), finishing his career with an explosive 6.16 YPC average and 65 receptions. Mack confirmed his plus athleticism in Indy, posting a top-five SPARQ score among running backs with 4.5-flat speed and a springy 10-foot-5 broad jump. On college tape, Mack showed a tendency to bounce runs outside in persistent attempts to turn nothing into something, which can be viewed positively or negatively. Either way, Mack’s playmaking ability and versatility are undeniable. He has some Tevin Coleman to his game as a multi-phase weapon who is dangerous in open space.

Giants selected Clemson RB Wayne Gallman with the No. 140 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft

Gallman (6’1/215) emerged as a starter during his redshirt freshman year and never relinquished the job, turning pro after compiling a 675/3,416/34 (5.06 YPC) rushing line with 66 receptions. He earned first-team All-ACC as a sophomore and second team as a junior. A workmanlike grinder who gets the most out of his ability, Gallman is nevertheless a mediocre athlete with 4.60 speed and limited lateral moves, lacking standout traits. Gallman was also a major liability in pass protection at Clemson.

Steelers selected Tennessee QB Josh Dobbs with the No. 135 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Dobbs (6’3/216) made 35 starts at Tennessee, graduating with a 23-12 record, 61.5% completion rate, 53:29 TD-to-INT ratio, and 7.1 yards-per-attempt average. Dobbs also set school records in rushing yards (2,160) and rushing TDs by a quarterback (32), averaging 4.93 yards per carry. An impressive background, Dobbs has a degree in aerospace engineering. While Dobbs offers plus height, athleticism, and smarts, he is a rail-thin "push thrower" who doesn’t torque his body to generate velocity. Dobbs’ inconsistent decision making and footwork also led to inaccuracy and turnovers at Tennessee. Still intriguing in some respects, Dobbs offers a sliver of developmental upside.

Bengals selected Auburn DE Carl Lawson with the No. 116 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Lawson (6’2/261) turned pro as a redshirt junior after making 20 starts, tallying 14 sacks with 24 tackles for loss and three forced fumbles. Lawson rebounded from an injury-plagued start to his career to earn first-team All-SEC from the conference’s coaches in 2016. Lawson showed above-average athleticism in Indy, testing with 65th-percentile SPARQ and 4.67 speed. On tape, Lawson demonstrates a diverse pass-rush repertoire with an outside rip, power, speed, and spins. He also popped an inside rusher. Lawson has all the tools to develop into a high-end No. 2 pass rusher or low-end No. 1 with first-year-impact potential. It's believed Lawson slipped much further than expected in the draft due to concerns about his shoulders.

Redskins selected Oklahoma RB Samaje Perine with the No. 114 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Perine (5’11/233) made 30 starts in three years at OU, operating as the Thunder to Joe Mixon’s Lightning and leaving college with a career 685/4,122/49 (6.0 YPC) rushing line and 40/321/2 (8.0) receiving. Perine broke Billy Sims’ all-time rushing record at Oklahoma. A powerful tackle breaker, Perine’s athleticism was unsurprisingly sub-par at the Combine with 4.65 speed and 25th-percentile SPARQ results. Perine looks like a plodder at times on tape, but his skill set translates well to a short-yardage and clock-killing role, and his receiving ability is better than advertised.

Jaguars selected Oklahoma WR Dede Westbrook with the No. 110 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Westbrook (6’0/178) spent two years at OU after transferring from JUCO, stacking a 126/2,267/21 (18.0 YPR) career receiving line and finishing as a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2016. He dabbled on kickoff and punt returns as a senior, bringing back a punt 71 yards to the house. Westbrook blazed 4.39 at his Pro Day, but the rest of his workout underwhelmed. NFL scouts expressed concern about Westbrook’s interviews, commitment, and pre-draft preparation at the Combine. Westbrook’s tape reveals a dynamic weapon with terrific hands, dropping just 4-of-84 catchable targets in 2016. Whether Westbrook realizes his immense promise is entirely up to him.
