Former UNC RB Gio Bernard noted junior TE Eric Ebron has all the physical tools to succeed, but "somebody's going to take him under their wing and show him the right path."

Ebron's physical skill is obvious, and we are very pleased in his development this season. The tight end struggled with consistency in 2012, dropping passes in contested situations, but Ebron has made difficult grabs this year while showing off excellent movement skills. We don't take Gio's comment as a negative, and it seems Ebron is already on the right path in terms of progression. His ceiling is sky high.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah said that on his pro day, Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer "took a step forward from Indianapolis."

"I thought he was letting it rip a little bit more than he did at the [C]ombine," Jeremiah explained. "I thought he was guiding the ball in Indianapolis, didn't look very comfortable, and had a tough time repeating both footwork and his delivery." NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt was hearing from scouts present for Kizer's pro day "everything from exceptional to just okay." Brandt, himself, believes that the 6-foot-4, 230-pounder "finds a home at the back end of the first round somewhere." One team drafting much higher up -- the Chicago Bears -- will reportedly be putting him through a workout late next week.

Rutgers redshirt senior WR Janarion Grant (ankle) participated in the Scarlet Knights' first spring practice on a limited basis.

Grant is being limited to running straight-line routes and fielding punts, as Rutgers won't be pushing him this spring, not after he broke his ankle in the fourth game of the 2016 season and missed the rest of the subsequent campaign. Said HC Chris Ash, "The fact that he can get out and do anything right now, with running some routes and catching some balls, is a benefit to him and to us...We're not going to put him in position to get injured." During a healthy 2015 season, the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Swiss Army Knife accumulated 1,935 yards between returns, receiving and rushing.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that the Tampa Bay Bucaneers put UConn DB Obi Melifonwu through a private workout on Thursday.

Melifonwu has also recently met with the Lions and Panthers. Pauline notes that the UConn defender performed well on pro day -- no surprise there given how he has aced the draft process to date -- and writes that the 6-foot-4, 223-pounder "moved incredibly well around the field, displayed quick, fluid footwork moving in reverse and easily flipped his hips." He additionally relays that scouts "were impressed with the explosion and acceleration he displayed out of his transition."

The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs reports that the Bears will hold a private workout for Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer "likely late next week."

Finally freed from the dark adventure that was Jay Cutler, the Bears look like they might not be completely out on athletically-talented quarterbacks who make questionable decisions. One AFC vice president of personnel said at the beginning of the month that he is "scared to death" of Kizer, while CBS Sports' Rob Rang called his pro day inaccuracy "frightening." These may read like a set of blurbs for a Stephen King horror novel, but the 6-foot-4, 230-pounder remains a probable Day 1 selection. He has the physical tools to play at the next level and in terms of draft stock, is helped by the fact that there are real questions about all of the top quarterbacks in this class.

An anonymous NFL scout told Bleacher Report that he trusts Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon more than FSU RB Dalvin Cook.

"The pattern of bad decisions are alarming, really," the scout said of Cook. "With my job on the line, I trust [Joe] Mixon a lot more than Dalvin Cook." Though Cook has never been found guilty of a crime, he's been charged with misdemeanor battery (2015), cited for a violation of animal care (2014), charged with firing a weapon and possession of a weapon on school property (2010) and charged with robbery (2009). Cook has also been charged with criminal mischief after allegedly causing property damage with a BB gun. On top of all that, he has shoulder and hamstring issues, fumbling problems and tested horrifically at the NFL Combine. B/R's Matt Miller predicts he'll fall into the second round.

Georgia junior DT Trenton Thompson has returned to the team and is training.

This is big news. Thompson withdrew from school over the winter for the spring semester to deal with what was called a "significant" medical issue. He reportedly could be back in classes in May. His high school coach Octavia Jones said Thompson has lost weight and looks "more like a defensive end than a defensive tackle." Thompson was listed at 6-foot-4 and 309 pounds last season and now is, according the Jones, "265 or 270. He still has his muscles; he’s just not as thick." Thompson reportedly had shoulder surgery in January and has been dealing with high blood pressure as a result of stress. Thompson, the nation’s consensus No. 1 recruit in the 2015 cycle, led the team with 9.5 TFL last year.

UCLA CB Fabian Moreau underwent successful surgery Wednesday night to repair a torn pectoral muscle.

The injury Moreau suffered during his pro-day bench press turned out to be more significant than at first thought. UCLA HC Jim Mora had something to do with that, downplaying the injury on Tuesday as "minor and nothing to worry about." Moreau, formerly moving into Round 1 territory, now faces a recovery timeline of 4-6 months (which translates to something like mid-July to late-September). It's a devastating turn of events for Moreau (6-foot, 206 pounds), who was coming off a dominant NFL Combine that included a 4.35 40-yard dash (No. 2 among CBs).

The Chargers put Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes through a private workout last week, according to ESPN's Eric D. Williams.

The team's head coach, offensive coordinator and position coach attended the workout. Expect many teams with established starters to look towards the future at the quarterback position. Philip Rivers, at 35 years of age, is ending his run of high guarantees on his contract. We would not be surprised if teams without obvious quarterback needs dominate the quarterback draft market.

Appearing on the Rich Eisen Show, Miami TE David Njoku said he has an upcoming visit with the Panthers.

The Panthers are interested in adding a tight end for two reasons. One, to add weapons for Cam Newton and possibly run more 12 personnel. And two, select Greg Olsen's eventual replacement. Njoku likely will be a first round selection as the second tight end off the board. He combines size and top end athleticism, testing in the 93rd percentile.

Washington CB Sidney Jones (Achilles) says he's the best corner in the NFL Draft.

Jones was defiant about his NFL future after undergoing successful surgery to repair an Achilles tendon he ruptured at his pro day workout. "I’m the best corner in the draft, plain and simple," Jones said. Following the injury, NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah said he would be surprised if Jones was selected before the third round. Obviously, the prospect, formerly considered a first-rounder, is hoping for better. "I will be playing this season," Jones said. "If you take me, I’m a good investment for your team. A great investment."

Former Florida redshirt junior QB Treon Harris is the heavy favorite to start at Tennessee State.

Harris' battle with incumbent starter O’Shay Ackerman-Carter didn't even reach the summer, as Ackerman-Carter announced his intention to transfer on Monday. Ackerman-Carter had started the previous two years. During his up-and-down Florida career, the 5-foot-11, 190-pound Harris completed 174-of-346 (50.3 percent) passes for 2,695 yards and an 18/10 TD/INT ratio. He also rushed 171 times for 570 yards and three touchdowns.
