Vikings GM Rick Spielman says the team plans to spend a lot of time with Notre Dame ILB Manti Te'o.

"He's an extremely talented football player," Spielman said. The general manager added that the Vikings spent the last seven days setting their board and he likes the defensive linemen in the 2013 class. The team's personnel guys have also met to see how players fit based on character and skill into their scheme.

USC athletic director Pat Haden underwent "an unspecified medical procedure" on Thursday.

On Wednesday, the 63-year-old Haden felt light-headed while walking and nearly collapsed outside of Heritage Hall. He received medical attention and underwent the unspecified procedure the next day. Haden, who has a pacemaker, is expected to remain hospitalized for another day, maybe two.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler and Rotoworld's Josh Norris both consider Appalachian State DL Ronald Blair a top 50 prospect.

Blair had to drop out of the East West Shrine Game due to a minor injury suffered during training, and hopefully he will be ready for the Combine. Norris placed Blair as the No. 49 prospect in his latest rankings, and Brugler followed up last night by saying Blair is a top 40 talent. The Appalachian State defender plays on the edge and inside depending on the situation, and produced an outstanding game against Clemson. Expect to hear Blair's name from others as the process goes along.

Texas interim playcaller Jay Norvell will join the football staff at Arizona State to serve as receivers coach and passing-game coordinator.

This is the fifth assistant coach departure for Texas. Norvell was promoted midseason and helped the Longhorns defeat Oklahoma. However, Charlie Strong hired Tulsa's Sterlin Gilbert to run the offense following the season. Norvell previously coached at Oklahoma before joining Texas for one season.

Southern Miss WR Michael Thomas did not receive an invitation to the NFL Combine.

Thomas will likely earn the "biggest snub" label in the days leading up to the Combine. Many were surprised Thomas participated in the NFLPA game instead of the East West Shrine or Senior Bowl, but it is time to take a step back and ask "does the NFL know something we do not?" Thomas boasts a plus 6-foot-2 200-pound frame and produced a 71-1391-14 touchdown receiving line last season.

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer indicated that five-star DE Nick Bosa will not take a redshirt in 2016.

Said Meyer, "[Bosa]'s playing. He had the knee injury, but he's well ahead of schedule. Looks fantastic, and he's a little ahead of his brother at this time." The knee injury in question was a torn ACL suffered during his senior campaign with St. Thomas Aquinas. The 6-foot-4, 255-pound clone/brother of potential No. 1 pick Joey Bosa is hoping to be healthy enough for August camp. As to the hype that will inevitably follow the five-star dynamo-in-the-making, co-DC Luke Fickell said, "Nick is a mature kid that I don't think will bat an eye coming in here. Whether he wears the No. 97, whether he looks like Joey or walks like Joey, the reality is he's Nick. He's grown up with this his whole life."

At the NFL Combine, TCU QB Trevone Boykin will work out with the quarterbacks.

"I’m told Boykin has been doing receiver work during his combine preparation but presently there are no plans for him to run routes or catch passes in Indianapolis or during pro-day at TCU," wrote TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, who brought us this dispatch. "Rather Boykin will workout at receiver as teams come to campus to individually test Josh Doctson and Kolby Listenbee." We're hoping Boykin's stubbornness (seen another way, his conviction) won't cost him a potential NFL career. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Drew Davison reported last month that the Senior Bowl moved on from Boykin because he didn't agree to exclusively play wide receiver.

Stanford graduate RB Barry J. Sanders transferred to Oklahoma State.

Sanders is the son of Heisman-winning Cowboys legend Barry Sanders. "His message to me was to keep an open mind," Sanders said. "I think that he would have wanted me to look at more schools. He definitely didn’t want me to make a decision without considering other options." Set to graduate in the spring, Sanders is eligible to play immediately in 2016. The former four-star recruit out of Oklahoma didn't live up to expectations on the East Coast. Across three seasons, Sanders rushed for 672 yards and five touchdowns, caught 12 passes for 89 yards and averaged 9.5 yards on 10 punt returns. He figures to see the field more often for the Pokes. They don't, after all, have Christian McCaffrey.

NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock compared Notre Dame WR Will Fuller to Marvin Harrison.

This is quite a comparison for a player Rotoworld does not consider a first-round prospect. To be fair, Fuller is only Mayock's No. 5-rated receiver in the class, so he isn't exactly saying that Fuller is Harrison, but rather that they share many commonalities. For instance, Fuller and Harrison share 6-foot, 185-pound frames. Harrison, recently announced as part of the 2016 Pro Football Hall of Fame class, was the No. 4 receiver selected in 1996 behind Keyshawn Johnson, Terry Glenn and Eddie Kennison.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that the Cowboys list Florida State DB Jalen Ramsey No. 1 overall on their board.

This one is juicy, though we do wonder if Dallas leaked this report as a smokescreen to conceal their interest in another prospect (if they loved one of the quarterback prospects, for instance, and hoped to give the imprecision that they intended to use the No. 4 pick for immediate help instead). Either way, Ramsey is the type of defensive piece who would be worthy of the No. 1 pick (in fact, that's where Josh Norris currently has him mocked). The corner-safety hybrid will interest the Titans, Browns and Chargers, all picking before Dallas.

NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock ranks North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz as the best quarterback in the draft.

Mayock's position rankings were released Wednesday. In them, he sides with Wentz over Jared Goff of California. Following those two, in order, are Paxton Lynch (Memphis), Connor Cook (Michigan State) and Dak Prescott (Mississippi State). Mayock's love of Wentz is no surprise after the analyst gushed over the Bison star at the Senior Bowl. We find it a bit more interesting that Mayock has Prescott No. 5. There are a few other developmental quarterbacks we'd prefer over the Bulldog. We're a bit concerned that Prescott has never shown an ability to work through progressions.

Iowa State dismissed WR D'Vario Montgomery.

First-year head coach Matt Campbell gave Montgomery the boot for an unspecified violation of team rules. Montgomery, who began his career at USF, had 27 receptions for 335 yards and three scores last season. He led the Cyclones with 605 yards receiving in 2014. The 6-foot-5, 200-pounder has all sorts of talent if he decides to behave himself.
