Florida State redshirt sophomore WR Kelvin Benjamin's X-rays on his injured hand came back negative.

Benjamin uncharacteristically dropped a few passes against NC State, but the hand injury can likely be to blame. "He got the helmet right on the bone part of his hand, which causes immediate pain," FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. "It really didn’t swell all that badly. …they just wanted to check it out, make sure they X-rayed it, and it was fine." We just realized that the massive receiver is draft-eligible, but don't expect him to leave Jameis Winston's side after this season. He has 23 receptions for 430 yards and five touchdowns this season.

Pro Football Focus' Mike Renner cautions that only six of the 38 receivers who have run sub-4.4 forty since the 2009 combine are currently top-two receivers on their respective NFL teams.

"With Dorsett, we didn't see much besides elite speed," he wrote of PFF's tape and stat investigation. "He's undersized at 5-10, 185 pounds, and is still an unrefined route runner. Of his 67 targets last season, 40 came on deep routes (go, deep crosser, post and corner). He'll have to run a much more varied route tree at the next level. DeSean Jackson goes deep as often as anyone in the NFL, and even he was targeted on downfield routes only 37 percent of the time last season." The analyst concedes that there is "a lot of potential here" but believes that "taking Dorsett in the first round would be a substantial gamble." We think Dorsett is either going to sneak into the latter stages of Round 1 or get popped quickly on Day 2.

"Several teams" have removed Boise State RB Jay Ajayi from their board or "backed way off" due to medical questions, according to Bob McGinn.

The medical in question is Ajayi's knee as he underwent knee surgery in 2011. One beat writer previously described the knee as "shredded" during the time of injury. "I just don't know if he'll hold up physically," one scout told McGinn. We think Ajayi is extremely talented with long speed, occasionally breaking tackles and comfort in space as a receiver, but keep the injury in mind of more talented backs go off the board before Ajayi.

An anonymous NFL scout compared Iowa OL Brandon Scherff to perennial Pro Bowl guard Steve Hutchinson.

"He's better than anyone that's come out of there (Iowa), and they've had a bunch of good guys," a scout said. "I know everyone wants to make a guard out of him, but I'd have him disprove he can't play tackle. He didn't even play healthy this year. Had his knee scoped (torn cartilage) and the guy missed one practice. You watch the year before. I like (Bryan) Bulaga but I think this guy is better. I didn't think Bulaga could play left tackle but I think this guy can." A second scout added: "Alert, aggressive, finishes, athletic. Anchor is just OK. He'll be really good in a zone scheme because he has a really good feel for angles. When you line up with him you know what you're going to get." A third scout was lower on Scherff, advising a team wanting a tackle to take Andrus Peat. We disagree that Scherff can't stick at LT.

ESPN's Todd McShay compares East Carolina WR Justin Hardy to Jarvis Landry "in that he's a fierce competitor who isn't afraid to do the dirty work over the middle."

"He fights for yards after contact and is an aggressive, scrappy blocker," McShay wrote. "His draft stock is hurt by his lack of breakaway speed and average overall athleticism, but he has the chance to succeed as a Day 2 pick because of his elite ball skills and knack for getting open." Hardy recorded 121 catches, 1,494 yards and 10 scores in 2014. The 6-foot, 188-pounder has never been terribly fleet of foot and also posted only a 9-foot-6 broad jump at the combine, indicating his athletic explosion is lacking. He's reliable and willing to take a shot over the middle, though.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora keeps hearing "from evaluators who know what they hell they are doing" that Louisville WR DeVante Parker is the "second-best receiver in the draft."

"Some think the gap between him and Amari Cooper isn't exactly massive," La Canfora further added. "Not saying he is the second one taken -- Kevin White's measurables probably still make him second to Cooper, but could be more interesting than some think." In a study of numbers, Parker disappoints. A football analytics director recently agreed with Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score projection -- which called Parker the No. 9 WR -- that Parker should have been more productive in college. "It is hard to see him living up to this rating," the director said, referencing Mel Kiper's No. 9 overall grade. That said, Parker's catch radius is as large as a black hole. We're fans.

The Seattle Seahawks would "love to grab" Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham if he’s available at No. 63, reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

At least Seattle is being realistic, as "they expect the receiver to be off the board during the initial fifteen picks of round two." DGB has taken all sorts of character shots this offseason, but we were interested in a recent Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report that stated the Oklahoma staff "vouches" for and "loved" Green-Beckham.

Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi has dealt with "back issues his whole career," according to an anonymous scout.

"Just during games you'd see him stretching, and in practice he was always doing some maintenance on the back. There's got to be some legitimate concerns about the back," the scout concluded. A previous quote in early March from a scout, also via McGinn, stated Ogbuehi rarely practiced due to always being hurt. The athletic left tackle is coming off an ACL injury sustained in the school's bowl game but is on track to help in year one.

One scout who spoke with Bob McGinn compared South Carolina G A.J. Cann to Larry Warford and Chance Warmack.

"He'll need a little work in pass pro. He's a little bit shorter and a little bit slow-footed," the scout added. Cann could be selected as early ad picks No. 31 and 32, but most likely will be a second round selection. Just speaking of personal preference, we graded both Warmack and Warford as superior prospects out of school.

One scout described Stanford T Andrus Peat a "beautiful athlete" when speaking with Bob McGinn.

With so much negativity surrounding the evaluation of draft prospects, we wanted to pass along praise for the pear shaped offensive lineman. "So smooth. Really impressive physically. I compared him to Tyron Smith," the scout added. All evaluators do not share this sentiment, as another scout told McGinn "every defensive player I saw against Stanford kicked the (expletive) out of the guy." We think Peat will be drafted as the first true tackle next Thursday.

LSU CB Jalen Collins failed multiple drug tests during his college career, according to Albert Breer.

Breer cites four team sources. Collins only started 10 games during his tenure at LSU, so some could view Collins as an unknown commodity. We doubt he is selected in the first round. Teams will like his length and long speed, likely in the second round.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline has heard of a scenario where the Patriots trade down from the 32nd pick to take South Carolina G A.J. Cann.

"This would fill a big need at guard for the team," Pauline wrote. "I’ve been skeptical of Cann’s movement skills but was told the big offensive lineman, who has been struggling with a calf strain since the end of the season, worked out for several teams on Monday and ran both the short shuttle and 3 cone at the request of coaches." Cann clocked an outstanding 4.51 in the short shuttle and a great 7.37 in the 3-cone. Only Jake Fisher and Ali Marpet posted better times at the combine amongst offensive lineman.
