ESPN's Mel Kiper named Duke's Sean Renfree as a potential sleeper quarterback in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Renfree finished his college career with a 64.6 completion rate, 50 touchdown passes, and 40 interceptions. "I like the fact that (Renfree) has size, I like his arm," said Kiper. "I like that he was with David Cutcliffe for five years. (Cutcliffe) tutored Peyton and Eli Manning and is known as a quarterback guru. Renfree took Duke to a bowl game for the first time since 1994, Renfree did. He’s a Matt Hasselbeck, Matt Schaub type to me so I like Renfree in the fifth-round area."

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah can "easily" see USC WR Nelson Agholor "sliding up into the first round."

"You can play him outside, you can play him inside," Jeremiah said. "I know he has a slight frame but he has burst and can also return punts and kicks. He has a lot of value and is a very, very bright guy who has impressed teams with his football knowledge. The top of the second round is where I have him, in the 30s, but I can easily see him sliding up into the first round." Agholor, an early entrant, has largely been lost in the shuffle in the middle of a deep receiver group. He's coming off a sensational season, however, and has been tremendous during the postseason circuit. It certainly seems like he won't get out of Round 2.

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs has been dubbed "Playmaker's 2015 sleeper favorite."

Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score ranks Diggs as the No. 10 receiver, ahead of far more heralded prospects like Devin Funchess, Phillip Dorsett and Dorial Green-Beckham. The model apparently gave Diggs much credit for his huge freshman campaign -- when he caught 54 passes for 848 yards and six touchdowns while also rushing for 114 yards on 20 attempts -- while Maryland attempted only 304 passes due to playing three freshman quarterbacks. "He is regarded as only a mid- to late-round prospect by conventional wisdom because his sophomore and junior years were marred by injury and inconsistency," wrote FO's Nathan Forster. "It's true that these injury concerns could return to haunt Diggs' professional career, but at a low price, the upside that Diggs teased as a freshman is well worth the gamble." Playmaker compares the former five-star recruit to Antonio Brown and Az-Zahir Hakim.

West Virginia's Kevin White dishearteningly ranks as the No. 8 receiver in the class, in the estimation of Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score.

The organization uses the system to project wide receivers to the next level. "White's total numbers for his senior year were good: 1,447 receiving yards, 10 touchdowns," wrote FO's Nathan Forster. "However, the numbers for senior wide receivers who succeed at the NFL level are often much better than White's, especially considering that the Mountaineers threw the ball 534 times. Kendall Wright, for example, entered the draft as a senior, but had more impressive totals: 1,663 receiving yards in only 424 team passing attempts. ... White may have impressed with a 4.35 second 40-yard dash at the combine, but all else being equal, the combine 40 isn't a consistent predictor of future NFL success for receivers." The system offered Michael Floyd and Donnie Avery as similar historical prospects. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound White, a possible top-5 pick, is pegged by Rotoworld as the class' premier receiver.

TCU LB Paul Dawson met with the St. Louis Rams and New Orleans Saints at last week's pro day event.

Dawson (6-foot-0 1/8, 235 pounds) improved upon his 4.93 second combine forty by .15 seconds when he ran a 4.78 at his pro day. Dawson, of course, isn't a workout warrior. Instead, he's an ultra-productive LB who posted 136 tackles during the 2014 season. NFL Media analysts Mike Mayock and Lance Zierlein both rank Dawson as the best LB in the class.

USC WR Nelson Agholor surprisingly ranked as the No. 2 receiver in the class according to Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score.

Terry Glenn and Ike Hilliard were cited as similar historical prospects. "Agholor hopes to break USC out of a wide receiver-producing slump that has included first-round busts such as Mike Williams and R. Jay Soward," wrote FO's Nathan Forster. "More recent draft picks Robert Woods and Marqise Lee have had their moments but haven't yet broken out. Agholor was a reasonably productive receiver at USC, with 1,313 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns." Scout's Inc. ranks Agholor as the No. 37 overall prospect.

Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score disappointingly ranks WR Dorial Green-Beckham as the No. 13 receiver in the class and offers Jonathan Baldwin and Yatil Green as similar historical prospects.

We'll allow FO's Nathan Forster to explain. "Playmaker Score sometimes has trouble with players like Green-Beckham, who had limited college action and thus are less likely to produce a sample size sufficiently meaningful to forecast their futures," Forster wrote. "However, Green-Beckham was not particularly impressive in either of his two seasons of college football." Indeed, DGB had only had only 883 receiving yards during his sophomore season, the most productive of his two campaigns, even though Missouri passed 414 times that year. As Forster pointed out, L'Damian Washington (893 yards) was actually the team's No. 1 receiver that year: "In contrast to Green-Beckham's high draft grade this year, Washington went undrafted in 2014 and has been kicking around various practice squads. Granted, Washington didn't run a 4.49 40-yard dash at 6-5, 237 pounds, but the point is that Green-Beckham's lack of elite production is a red flag in our model."

Ole Miss CB Senquez Golson "has the twitch, ball skills and instincts to be an outstanding cornerback in the NFL," wrote NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

Zierlein compares Golson, who led the SEC with 10 interceptions in 2014, to Brent Grimes. "Golson has the twitch, ball skills and instincts to be an outstanding cornerback in the NFL," Zierlein wrote. "Despite playing so much zone in college, there is no reason to believe he can't transition to any coverage asked of him. He's well put-together, but his lack of height could force some teams to view him as a slot-only corner. Golson has Pro Bowl potential." The analyst ranks Golson No. 9 amongst corners despite the proclamation. "He has that love of football we look for. He turned down big money as a baseball player to lock in on football, and he plays with passion and with explosive talent," said an AFC South regional scout.

LSU OL La'El Collins met with the New York Giants, Cleveland Browns, San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints last week, reported TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Collins "looked good in position drills" at his pro day last week, Pauline noted. Though we remain steadfast in our belief that Collins can be an NFL left tackle, multiple high-profile draft writers disagree with us. For instance, NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein wrote that Collins is a "brawling right tackle or guard prospect in the NFL" and compared him to Maurkice Pouncey.

LSU edge rusher Danielle Hunter "looked tremendous" at last week's pro day, wrote TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Hunter produced a 6.97 3-cone, a 10-10 broad, a 36.5-inch vertical jump and then "looked terrific in linebacker drills," according to the scribe. The testing numbers, as we noted recently, were sensational. "The feeling from those in LSU was Hunter should've stayed in school another season, but based on his game film, athletic numbers and the workouts he had at the combine and pro day, I wouldn't be surprised if he slides into the late part of round one," Pauline wrote.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline writes that he "fully expect the Vikings to grab a linebacker in Round 2, 3 or 4 during the 2015 NFL Draft."

Within the past week, the Vikings have worked out or met with Utah edge rusher Nate Orchard and North Dakota State edge rusher Kyle Emanuel, and a few weeks ago they traveled to Michigan to see Jake Ryan. The Purple have Anthony Barr locked into one outside gig for the next decade, but OLB Chad Greenway might only have one year left and the team probably would like to find competition to push MLB Gerald Hodges.

Alabama redshirt sophomore DL Jon Taylor, a Georgia transfer, was arrested on domestic violence III and criminal mischief charges.

The victim reportedly was Taylor's girlfriend and had "minor injuries to her neck from the assault," along with a hole being punched in the wall. Taylor was dismissed from Georgia after an aggravated assault/family violence charge and arrest, which followed a previous "theft by deception" charge.
