According to the Charleston Post & Courier, Clemson junior QB Tajh Boyd received a late second- to middle of the third-round grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board upon submitting paperwork for a pro evaluation.

Boyd's father Tim appears to be the source for the story and suggested Tajh could be a "top-60" pick after improving his stock in Clemson's bowl upset of LSU. Boyd is a sub-6-foot-2 quarterback who's had consistency issues throughout his college career. He's also athletic with a power arm, and this is a weak incoming quarterback class. It can't hurt that sub-5-foot-11 quarterback Russell Wilson is a Rookie of the Year favorite with the Seattle Seahawks. If Boyd declares for the draft, we strongly believe he could end up in the first round.

Dolphins selected Boise State RB Jay Ajayi with the No. 149 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

A day-two talent based on tape, measurables and stats, Ajayi plummeted due to concerns over his right knee, which NFL Network's Mike Mayock has reported is "bone on bone." Ajayi (6'0/221) turned 678 college carries into 3,796 yards (5.60 YPC) and 50 TDs, adding 73 catches. He ran 4.57 at the Combine, also impressing in the vertical (39") and broad (10'1") jumps with one of the fastest 20-yard shuttle times (4.10) by a running back. On tape, Ajayi looks like Marshawn Lynch with a compact, muscular build but isn't quite as physical. More of a loose-hipped finesse back, Ajayi is an extremely aggressive runner with light feet and an ability to change speeds on a dime. Ajayi fumbled 11 times at Boise and must tighten up his pass protection, but could eventually be a three-down back if he works out the kinks and stays healthy. He's competition for Lamar Miller, but perhaps not an immediate 2015 threat.

Packers traded up to select UCLA QB Brett Hundley with the No. 147 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Hundley (6'3/226) made 40 starts at UCLA, completing 67.6 percent of his passes with a 75:25 TD-to-INT ratio and 30 more rushing scores. He absorbed a whopping 125 sacks in three college seasons, also fumbling 29 times. Although Hundley is strong armed and a terrific athlete, he showed zero feel for the pocket at UCLA and completed an abysmal 32.6 percent of his throws on the run. Smart (26 Wonderlic) with NFL-caliber tools, Hundley is a multi-year project who needs to ride the bench for at least a season or two, and will be afforded that time with the Packers.

Vikings selected Pittsburgh OT T.J. Clemmings with the No. 110 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Clemmings was viewed by many as a fringe first-round prospect, but fell because of reports of concerns with his foot. On top of the injury, he's a project as a pass blocker. Clemmings (6'5/309) was a decorated high school basketball recruit and began his college career at defensive end before converting to right tackle as a junior. He made 26 starts there for Pitt, earning first-team All ACC as a senior. Clemmings has huge hands (10 3/8") vines for arms (35 1/8"), and is an elite athlete for the position with 5.14 speed, a 32 1/2-inch vertical, and a 9-foot-3 broad jump. NFL.com's Lance Zierlein -- the media's premier O-Line evaluator -- believes Clemmings "has the physical traits to become a Pro Bowl left tackle" and likened him to stud Texans LT Duane Brown.

Texans selected Arizona State WR Jaelen Strong with the No. 70 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Strong (6'2/217) played two seasons at ASU after transferring from JUCO, piling up 157 catches for 2,287 yards (14.6 YPR) and 17 TDs. He dropped only 6-of-132 targets in 2014. Not especially agile or a smooth separator on tape, Strong surprised at the Combine with a 4.44 forty, 42-inch vertical, and 10-foot-1 broad jump. NFL Films' Greg Cosell has suggested that Strong's inability to create space from defenders is fixable through improved route running. Strong's current strengths are winning contested catches and untapped upside after dominating the Pac 12 as a 19- and 20-year-old.

Cowboys selected Nebraska DE Randy Gregory with the No. 60 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

The Cowboys stop Gregory's fall as they had a dire need off the edge after RE Greg Hardy's 10-game suspension. Based on talent alone, Gregory was a top-10 prospect in this class before off-field character issues torpedoed his stock. Gregory (6'5/235) spent two seasons as a Cornhusker after transferring from JUCO, earning first-team All-Big Ten in each year. He posted 17.5 career sacks and 29 tackles for loss. Gregory ran 4.64 at the Combine with a 36 1/2-inch vertical, showing burst in a 10-foot-5 broad jump. Long armed (34") and lean, Gregory is built like a cross between Jason Taylor and Leonard Little and can convert speed to power. He also held up well as a college run defender despite playing at around 220 last year. Gregory has loads of room for growth. He will enter the NFL already in the league's substance-abuse program after testing positive for marijuana at the Combine.

Lions selected Nebraska RB Ameer Abdullah with the No. 54 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Abdullah (5'9/205) parlayed 813 career carries into 4,588 yards (5.64 YPC) and 39 touchdowns for Nebraska, adding 73 receptions. Although Abdullah is long-speed deficient (4.60), he registered the highest SPARQ score among running backs at the Combine, and offers an elite combination of lateral agility and lower-body explosion. He was one of the best all-around football players we viewed on tape, running inside with determined decisiveness. He has future feature back potential if he cleans up his pass pro and ball security after fumbling 24 times in college. If it comes together, Abdullah can be a more elusive version of Ray Rice. As a rookie, he'll battle Theo Riddick to pick up Reggie Bush's pass-catching slack opposite Joique Bell.

Giants traded up to draft Alabama SS Landon Collins with the No. 33 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Collins (6'0/228) made 23 starts in Nick Saban's secondary, seeing action at both free and strong safety en route to 8.5 career TFLs and five interceptions. He was a consensus first-team All American in 2014. Collins ran 4.53 at the Combine with a 35-inch vertical and 10-foot broad jump. An aggressive, downhill safety and efficient tackler, Collins is best suited to play close to the line of scrimmage. He has some hip stiffness and lacks man-cover skills. Still, Collins projects as a plus NFL starter and should become an IDP contributor immediately, filling a huge hole in the Giants' secondary at strong safety. New York fielded the league's leakiest run defense in 2014.

LSU OL La'EL Collin is the No. 3 available player heading into Day 2 on Josh Norris' board, but the analyst adds that "undrafted is a real possibility."

Collins will meet with Baton Rouge police on Monday, two days after the draft concludes, regarding the murder of his ex-girlfriend. Collins is not a suspect. If that remains so through the fact-checking process, this development in his life is shattering: While grieving the violent loss of a woman he once loved, Collins' professional career is beginning in turmoil and he will have lost several million dollars guaranteed as a result of the timing. There is too much money at stake -- now we're talking billions -- for NFL teams to invest a premium pick in a player with such serious and unresolved legal questions still unanswered. Though it would have broken the league's sanctified protocols, the NFL would have done right by all parties involved if they'd allowed Collins to enter the supplemental draft. Inaction while one man is unable to clear his name has resulted in the tying of hands of all 32 franchises as well as a gifted prospect, who can't do much except say he wasn't involved.

UCLA LB Eric Kendricks is the best available player heading into Day 2 on Josh Norris' board.

Norris compares Kendricks to Sean Lee and ranks him as the No. 7 prospect in the class overall. "One of the best coverage linebackers I have seen," Norris wrote. "His Virginia game is my favorite of any prospect this year. Aggressive. Attacks ball carries rather than just waiting at the second level. Best at working around blocks with angles and quicks but not afraid to hold his own. Can play multiple linebacker spots." The prospect boasts a stellar SPARQ% of 84.3. He figures to go in the top half of Round 2.

Chargers traded up with 49ers to select Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon with the No. 15 overall pick in the 2015 draft.

In exchange for flipping first-round selections with the 49ers, San Diego is surrendering a 2015 fourth-round pick and 2016 fifth-rounder. Gordon will immediately slide in as Ryan Mathews' replacement. Gordon (6'1/215) succeeded Montee Ball as Wisconsin's bell-cow, parlaying 631 career carries into 4,915 yards (7.79 YPC!) and 45 touchdowns. On the flipside, he caught only 22 passes, and is a sub-par pass blocker on tape. "MG3" ran 4.52 at the Combine with a 35-inch vertical and explosive 10-foot-6 broad jump. Gordon has elite burst, but was stuffed for no yardage or a loss on nearly 20 percent of his college runs. He also fumbled once every 54.4 touches, the second highest fumble rate in the 2015 class. Still an exciting talent, Gordon projects best as a two-down runner with big-play ability.

Jets selected USC DT Leonard Williams with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2015 draft.

Williams (6'5/302) spent three seasons at USC, tallying 36.5 career tackles for loss, 21 sacks, and five forced fumbles as a 35-game starter. Although Williams only tested as an above-average athlete (4.97 forty, 29 1/2-inch vertical), he dominated the Pac 12 at the ages of 18-20 and won't turn 21 until next month. Williams needs to play with lower pad level, but flashes dominant power on film and pass-rush potential that an NFL coaching staff should further unlock. Williams has drawn comparisons ranging from Kevin Williams to Richard Seymour. He joins an area of massive strength for the Jets, who already boast two dominant interior defensive linemen in Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson.
