SI's Tony Pauline believes that SMU senior RB Zach Line has feature back potential for a power running team.

He adds that Line could also be a fullback in a west coast offense and that the Mustang was considered a potential third-round choice prior to the 2012 season. Pauline cites the senior's terrific vision and football instincts for the projection.

TCU LB Paul Dawson still ranks as Mike Mayock's top prospect at the position.

Dawson ran a 4.93 forty at the Combine, which surprised Mayock and us here at Rotoworld. All TCU players play much faster than they timed, so the question is if the downhill, attacking scheme compensated for that lack of speed. UCLA's Eric Kendricks, Clemson's Stephone Anthony, Miss State's Benardrick McKinney and Miami's Denzel Perryman round out the top five. Shaq Thompson is listed under safety.

UT-Chattanooga EDGE rusher Davis Tull ran a 4.57 forty on his only attempt at the school's pro day on Monday.

Tull was able to jump at the Combine, and posted ridiculous scores of 42.5" vertical and 11'0" broad jump. That was after suffering a grade 1 hamstring strain the Monday before the Combine. Apparently he was still dealing with that injury, as scouts told him to only one one forty. Tull is an intriguing athlete on day three and stands 6'2/246 lbs.

LSU T La'El Collins now ranks as Mike Mayock's top prospect at the position, climbing from No. 3 to No. 1.

Pitt's T.J. Clemmings, the previous No. 1, dropped one spot, followed by Andrus Peat, Ereck Flowers, with D.J. Humphries and Cedric Ogbuehi tied at No. 5. We are surprised to not see Jake Fisher on the list. Brandon Scherff is ranked as Mayock's top interior offensive lineman.

In regards to the rumor the Eagles have a trade lined up with the Bucs for the No. 1 pick, ESPN's Pat Yasinskas says to "scrap that rumor -- for now."

Yasinskas spoke with two members of the Philadelphia media who also heard rumblings that a trade was "imminent." The trade rumor involved: Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy and three first-round draft picks to the Bucs for the No. 1 pick in the draft. Unless it is for the first or second pick in the draft, we doubt Foles will be included. The Eagles would be moving up from pick No. 20, but we doubt they will match the Redskins 2012 trade of swapping 1sts, two more first-round picks and a second-round pick. The price is only as much as a team is willing to give up.

Minnesota RB David Cobb will not participate in the school's pro day on Monday due to the quad injury he suffered at the Combine.

"As I understand the situation, he will have an individual workout sometime in early April," Cobb's father wrote. The running back pulled the muscle during his first forty and hobbled to the end of a 4.81 time.

Kansas State WR Tyler Lockett ranks as Gil Brandt's No. 5 receiver.

This is a wildly optimistic ranking from the veteran evaluator. In order, Brandt ranks Amari Cooper, Kevin White, DeVante Parker and Breshad Perriman Nos. 1-4. Grading Lockett No. 5 means Brandt prefers him to a spate of potential first rounders such as Dorial Green-Beckham, Devin Smith, Phillip Dorsett, Jaelen Strong, and Devin Funchess, as well as Round 2-probabilities Sammie Coates, Nelson Agholor and Rashad Greene. We can't say we agree.

An NFL scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that UCLA QB Brett Hundley has "got a lot of flaws in his game."

"I don't think he can mentally process," the scout said. "His arm and talent are OK." The 6-foot-3, 226-pounder has 4.63 wheels, a strong arm and a career 75-25 TD-INT ratio, but, as the scout indicates, we've never seen the tools coalesce on the field. "The physical tools are there," another scout said. "He's going to need time. He's going to have to go to a team that will need to have patience with him and just continue teaching him the game. A team at the top of the second (round) that needs a quarterback might throw him to the fire too early, and he's not ready for that."

Clemson edge rusher Vic Beasley compares himself to Denver Broncos LB Von Miller.

"A lot of teams saw me with my hand in the ground, comparing me to guys like Cameron Wake," Beasley said. "But I like to compare myself to Von Miller. He's able to drop in coverage, and we have the same body size, so I try to compare myself after him." As with regular human beings, it's extremely difficult for prospects to perceive themselves accurately. That said, Beasley might be on to something here. Miller measured 6-foot-3, 246 pounds at the 2011 combine, identical to Beasley's measurements, and both ran 4.53 seconds in the 40-yard dash. Miller is a bit quicker and more agile, beating Beasley in the 3-cone (6.70 to 6.91) and 20-yard shuttle (4.06 to 4.15), while Beasley is stronger (35 reps to Miller's 21) and more explosive (41 inch vertical to 37).

Chris Landry, who works with the NFL Combine, told 620 WDAE that Texans HC Bill O'Brien prefers Bryce Petty to Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota.

Landry adds O'Brien, and many other coaches, were inclined to like Mariota on film more than Jameis Winston, but the real story is Petty. In the link below, fast forward to 36:00 to hear the quotes. We aren't sure why it is appropriate to pass on news like this, as coaches and coordinators rarely speak this candidly to the media on their own. O'Brien does have an interesting history with quarterbacks thus far in the NFL, as reports have stated he was interested in Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley, traded for Ryan Mallett and drafted Tom Savage. He could have traded up for Teddy Bridgewater as well. This is no slight to Chris Landry, as many people who work close to the NFL are not widely known outside of the league, but we have not heard of Landry until this moment.

FSU RB Karlos Williams posted the best Speed Score of all 2015 running backs.

He ran a 4.48 forty at 230 pounds. Williams' Speed Score of 114.2 was the only one in the class at the combine above 110 (Todd Gurley and Tevin Coleman didn't run), typically viewed as the benchmark of a first-round pick. The brother of Steelers LB Vince Williams is a favorite of Football Outsiders scouting writer Matt Waldman. "Karlos is a former five-star recruit who played safety originally, then gradually transitioned to running back in his 2013 junior season, averaging 8.0 yards per carry (730 yards and 11 touchdowns on only 91 carries)," wrote ESPN's Aaron Schatz. "However, he disappointed a bit with only 4.6 yards per carry as a full-time running back in 2014, and has had some off-the-field issues that teams will need to consider."

Oregon redshirt senior T Andre Yruretagoyena has retired from football.

The offensive lineman said he plans to "focus on getting my body healthy and graduating" in the coming months. Yruretagoyena was one of the linemen injured for the Ducks last season, in this case a leg injury. That means four OL from last year will not be on the roster in 2015.
