Georgia senior QB Aaron Murray is "outstanding at throwing the ball in the middle of the field," according to NFL.com's Bucky Brooks.

Murray jumped from No. 12 to No. 6 in Brooks' quarterback rankings after his impressive performance against South Carolina. Throwing over the middle of the field is a difficult task for young quarterbacks, since it involves a good amount of anticipation and timing. Murray certainly doesn't have an issue when he gets into a rhythm, and showed improvements when forced out of the pocket.

All eyes will be on FSU QB Jameis Winston at the school's pro day, scheduled to start at 10 a.m. EST. on Tuesday.

The prospect has been working with George Whitfield Jr. "Here's what I expect to see: A big, strong guy who can throw the football," NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock said. "He's got arm strength to make every throw, and in a pair of gym shorts, he'll get under center, he'll go out of shotgun. He's got just enough athletic skills and movement ability to roll right, to roll left." NFL Media's Gil Brandt, a former longtime Dallas Cowboys executive, anticipates an impressive showing due to the scripted nature of the workout. His colleagues agree. "I'll be shocked if Jameis Winston does not have a great pro day," Daniel Jeremiah said. In addition to Winston, scouts will see C Cameron Erving, DT Eddie Goldman, CB P.J. Williams, CB Ronald Darby, WR Rashad Greene, DE Mario Edwards Jr., RB Karlos Williams, TE Nick O'Leary, G Tre' Jackson, G Josue Matias and OL Bobby Hart.

ESPN's Mel Kiper proclaims that UConn CB Byron Jones is "one of the bigger sleepers in this draft."

"The UConn cornerback can broad jump a furlong and is fast and bouncy," Kiper wrote. "He also displays great acceleration when he needs to recover. It would be easy to see Jones' workout footage and peg him as an athlete, but he's actually better at anticipating than simply relying on changing direction without any wasted motion, because his change-of-direction movement is probably the one clear weakness he shows on tape. I think Jones could land at safety depending on the needs of the team that drafts him." Jones is ranked by Scouts Inc. as the class' No. 47 prospect. It no longer seems likely that he'll be available at No. 47.

FSU C Cameron Erving "has Pro Bowl potential if he plays center, and any team that saw his tape from the last half of the 2014 season likely would put him there," ESPN's Mel Kiper believes.

"But he also would have been drafted if he'd simply stayed at left tackle, which speaks to his upside and versatility. If you draft him in Round 1, you can start him at center, but Erving brings extra value if injuries make a mess of your line," Kiper wrote. The analyst sees Erving going at the end of Round 1. Erving struggled at tackle last year, but he was utterly dominant after moving to center.

Georgia WR Chris Conley has visits scheduled with the Eagles and Colts, according to Alex Marvez.

Conley could be viewed as the top athlete at wide receiver in this draft. His exposures were limited in Georgia's offense, so a team might extrapolate off his contested catches and explosion and see a large amount of upside. We have no idea where Conley could be drafted, but third-round seems achievable.

Clemson EDGE Vic Beasley is working out for the Falcons on Monday, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter.

We aren't sure if Beasley makes it to pick No. 8. Dan Quinn seems to prioritize length more than his other peers in the Seattle defense tree and Beasley certainly would not match the criteria with 32.5" arms. Still, he offers ridiculous explosion and edge bend to disrupt the pocket.

Washington CB Marcus Peters will visit the Vikings prior to the draft, according to Darren Wolfson.

We think the Vikings first round pick at No. 11 will come down to a linebacker or cornerback, and Peters has been listed as the top corner by some evaluators. Teams likely want to be comfortable with Peters' personality, as his relationship with coaches led to his dismissal from Washington.

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham is scheduled to visit the Vikings, according to Darren Wolfson.

There are many different layers of "troubled," and just like "character concerns" the term sits on a spectrum. Many teams likely feel DGB fits in both categories, but Mike Zimmer took on "red flag" players while with the Vikings. It is difficult to project where Green-Beckham is drafted, but expect him to not make it out of the second-round.

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.
