ESPN's Outside the Lines reports that Ronaiah Tuiasosopo confessed in December to being the ringleader of a hoax that duped Notre Dame ILB Manti Te'o into believing he had a deceased girlfriend.

Tuiasosopo was reportedly "crying" when he admitted to duping Te'o to a church friend. Interviewed by ESPN's Shelley Smith, the friend said Tuiasosopo performed similar hoaxes in the past. "(Ronaiah) told me that Manti was not involved at all, he was a victim," the friend recounted. "... The girlfriend was a lie, the accident was a lie, the leukemia was a lie. ... It's not only Manti, but he was telling me that it's a lot of other people they had done this to." If ESPN's report is true -- and Outside the Lines has a long history of reliability -- Te'o's 2013 NFL Draft stock should not be significantly impacted.

NFL coaches "raved" about Northern Iowa RB David Johnson, reports CBS Sports' Pete Prisco.

"Now I know why," Prisco wrote. "He is a complete back. He can run it, catch it and he's a willing blocker. He doesn't have great speed, but he ran 4.50, which is good enough." At the combine, the 6-foot-1, 225-pound Johnson leaped to a 41.5-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-7-inch broad jump. Johnson posted three consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons in college.

Maryland DT Darius Kilgo has visited the Buffalo Bills, Washington Redskins, Green Bay Packers and Miami Dolphins, reports the Baltimore Sun.

Kilgo also met with the New England Patriots prior to the Terps' Pro Day workout. He completed 33 reps on the bench at that event. Kilgo's other testing times (5.19 second 40, 7.6 second 3-cone) were mediocre, but he "looked terrific in position drills," according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline. The 6-foot-2, 313-pounder posted 31 tackles, eight for losses and two sacks last season.

Wisconsin T Rob Havenstein has had private workouts for the Cincinnati Bengals, Jacksonville Jaguars, St. Louis Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, reports the Baltimore Sun.

Despite Havenstein's horrid combine showing -- he beat only eight offensive linemen with a 5.46 40-yard dash, had one of the worst 20-yard shuttle showings amongst linemen (4.87), had the worst three-cone drill time (8.28), and posted a field-low 16 reps on the bench press -- he "has impressed NFL teams with his size, intelligence and toughness," according to Aaron Wilson. Wisconsin's 320.1 rushing yards per game ranked third nationally last year and Melvin Gordon was frequently instructed to run behind Havenstein's wake. Havenstein is only a desirable prospect for run-heavy teams.

Eagles head coach Chip Kelly put Penn State DB Adrian Amos through a workout on PSU's campus.

You'll recall that Amos recently visited the Eagles, so this was something of a follow-up. "The Eagles said I did well," Amos wrote in a draft diary. "It all comes down to where they see value. I personally know what I can do and what value I bring to the team. It's about getting everybody to realize that. With this draft, you never know where you may fall or how you may fall to another team." Amos also passed along that he will attend the Ravens' local workout on Tuesday.

Georgia RB Todd Gurley will visit the Patriots this week.

New England picks at No. 32 overall, a half-round behind where Gurley is expected to be taken, though it's not out of the realm of possibility that Gurley slides due to his knee injury or that the Patriots attempt to make a play up the board to acquire him. Gurley's medical re-check of his ACL went well, mitigating the effect of the injury on his evaluation.

Miami (OH) DB Quinten Rollins is scheduled to visit the Falcons next week, according to Rand Getlin.

Expect Rollins to be evaluated and/or drafted as a free safety or cornerback. The one year collegiate football player shows an innate feel for movement, timing and playing the ball in the air. However, he tested like a below average athlete. The Falcons are in search of a free safety across from William Moore.

FSU DT Eddie Goldman met with the Jaguars in Tallahasse, FL, per Aaron Wilson.

We have already passed along Goldman's meetings with the 49ers, Lions, Patriots and Browns, and Wilson adds the DT will work out for the Panthers. We highly doubt Goldman is selected in the first round, but a top 50 selection is absolutely in the picture.

Citing two sources, Bob Glauber writes the Bucs will "listen seriously" to trade offers for the No. 1 pick.

It is a phrase we hear every year. However, with the uncertainty at the top of the draft, anything is possible. Jameis Winston appears to be set for the No. 1 pick, but many jumped the gun calling it a lock. Marcus Mariota is still in the hunt. Teams are in the process of finalizing their board, and owners still have a chance to get involved.

Dorial Green-Beckham recently visited the Bengals and 49ers, according to Ian Rapoport.

As we always say, we have no idea if DGB will be selected int he first round or the second round. Green-Beckham is an easy mover who is fluid and will go up and get passes at the catch point. However, it is difficult to project his routes because he ran a limited tree... almost two years ago.

CSN Baltimore's Clifton brown does not expect the Ravens to select a RB prior to the third round.

Brown writes this with the caveat that "Todd Gurley of Georgia and Melvin Gordon of Wisconsin... are expected to be gone before the Ravens pick at No. 26." Peter King recently said Gordon will not make it past the Ravens at 26. We do not think his talent is close to Gurley's, but that is not an insult. Gordon and other backs in this class are very talented.

Oregon senior TE Pharaoh Brown vows to play football again despite suffering a major leg injury last November.

Brown "underwent three major surgeries to stabilize the leg after a "stretched" artery cut blood flow off below his knee and nearly led to an amputation," Andrew Greif. Brown has been walking under his own power since February. The tight end even revealed he was planning to leave for the NFL following last season, but the injury derailed that. He is a great talent went on the field.
