Florida State senior DB Lamarcus Joyner will continue to practice at CB leading up to the 2013 season.

"It gives me a better shot at going to the next level," he said. "Hey, I would've been an undersized safety." Joyner's biggest knock is height, but we think he plays much bigger than the listed 5'8/187 pounds. His versatility could land him an immediate role in nickel situations in the NFL.

Virginia DE/OLB Eli Harold "put forth an impressive enough workout at Virginia's pro day Monday that could have upgraded his stock for the 2015 NFL Draft," wrote NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt.

Harold (6-foot-3 and 247 pounds) leaped to a 34 1/2-inch vertical jump and did 24 bench reps at 225 pounds. He elected to stand on his other combine numbers, including a 1.56 10-yard split on a 4.60 forty. "Harold looked good in the position drills, showing a good burst with his hand in the ground," Brandt wrote. The edge rusher is the No. 26 prospect on Daniel Jeremiah's Top 50 rankings.

Virginia S Anthony Harris was unable to work out at the school's Monday pro day due to an injury.

We haven't heard specifics about the injury, but will pass them along when we do. Harris, who ran the 40-yard dash at the combine in 4.56 seconds, is seen as an intelligent ballhawk (he led the nation with eight interceptions in 2013). The 6-foot-1, 183-pounder, however, is a bit lithe to hold up as an NFL safety, so adding bulk will be of the utmost importance. ," wrote NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt.

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt passed along from Minnesota's Monday pro day that Minnesota tight end Maxx Williams had an impressive workout.

Williams, who measured 6-foot-4 and 249 pounds at the combine, stood on his testing numbers from Indy. Seeing as though he ranked amongst the tight end leaders in the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, broad jump and 20-yard short shuttle, that wasn't a surprise. "Williams did, however, go through positional drills and looked good doing so," Brandt wrote.

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 run 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).
