Notre Dame senior CB Bennett Jackson has accepted an invitation to attend the East-West Shrine Game.

Jackson reportedly received a second day projection during the draft process last year form the advisory board, but chose to return for his final season. After a shoulder surgery it is unclear where Jackson's evaluation sits, but teams have plenty of tape on the defensive back, since he has played in every game during his time at Notre Dame.

According to CBS Sports, Nebraska RB Ameer Abdullah's fumble rate of once every 35.4 offensive touches is worst amongst running backs in this year's class.

"It should be noted that his fumbling totals decreased every year, but a concern nonetheless," added Dane Brugler. This comes as no surprise to draftniks. Abdullah is a stellar running back prospect, but he has two major weaknesses: His pass protection is shoddy due to his lithe frame, and he has major ball security issues. As a pure runner, though, Abdullah has few equals.

Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi (ACL) announced he will be healthy in time for the start of training camp.

Ogbuehi ripped an ACL in the Aggies' bowl game and had surgery about six weeks ago. He has maintained throughout that he'd be ready to play in the 2015 season, and today's news doubles down on that confidence. The 6-foot-5, 305-pounder is graded as a first-rounder by many, including Rotoworld. He is our No. 17 overall prospect, though we don't factor injuries into the evaluation. "Ogbuehi has enough strength, length and athleticism to hold up on the outside. There are real flashes of the complete package, he needs to win more often on first contact in order to sustain success," Josh Norris wrote.

Former NFL executive Greg Gabriel ranks Indiana RB Tevin Coleman as the top prospect at his position in the 2015 class.

"Coleman has a complete game. He can run with power between the tackles, is creative, and consistently gets yards after contact," Gabriel writes, adding the Hoosier can already pass protect and is an asset in the return game. We are shocked to see this ranking, but it does break groupthink on the Todd Gurley (who Gabriel would rank No. 1 if healthy) and Melvin Gordon III discussion.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah says the Falcons will select a pass rusher with pick No. 8.

Jeremiah mentions the likes of Vic Beasley, Shane Ray, Dante Fowler Jr. and Randy Gregory all as options at No. 8. In fact, Jeremiah believes the team should double dip with one of those four and Nate Orchard in the third round. It seems like the talent at the top of the draft matches up with the Falcons' biggest need.

FSU WR Rashad Greene posted a low drop rate of 3.88 percent in 2014, according to PFF.

Of the top receivers last year, that would have only ranked behind Jarvis Landry's final season of college football. A great drop rate might not stay exceptional, but rarely will you see it turn into an issue. That is the takeaway here. Greene might not be the best at contested catches, but teams should not rely on a 5'11/182 lbs receiver who has not shown that ability to win in that area.

The MMQB's Peter King spoke with Oregon OC Scott Frost about QB Marcu Mariota's ability and freedom to alter plays and blocking schemes pre-snap with the Ducks.

On play call changes, Mariota "did so three or four times a game," and altered the blocking up front "maybe one out of every seven plays" per Frost. Oregon moved at a blistering tempo early in games or when behind, and Mariota coupled that speed with quick decision making before and after the snap. We are of the belief that he made his offense look much more simple and easier than it actually is. In fact, Mariota did work through progressions in the pocket, including some west coast offense principles and plays used in the NFL. All the time? No, but those exposures are there.

UCF WR Breshad Perriman had a drop rate of 12.96% in 2014, according to PFF.

That is terrible. The sample size might be smaller than others, as Perriman dropped seven of 54 catchable passes, but PFF has a tendency to side with the receiver on what exactly is "catchable." Perriman would have generated more buzz if he worked out at the Combine and still has a shot at being a late first-round selection, but very poor drop rates tend to carry over to the NFL - at least early on.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah believes FSU TE Nick O'Leary is a fourth- or fifth-round value.

He suggests O'Leary might be a fit for the Falcons in that area. "Catches everything, he's very instinctive," Jeremiah says. "Didn't run all that fast at the Combine, that doesn't bother me." Tight end was a waste for the Falcons after the team lost Tony Gonzalez to retirement. Expect the position to be targeted in free agency and the draft.

The Patriots have "shown a lot of interest" in Auburn RB Cameron Artis-Payne, reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

The analyst additionally reported that New England also likes Auburn's other back, Corey Grant. As for Artis-Payne, who Pauline calls a "fast-rising ball-carrier," he stood on his combine 40 time. "During drills, he was quick-footed and caught the ball exceptionally well," Pauline wrote. "Expect Artis-Payne to solidify himself as a top-100 pick." ESPN's Todd McShay believes Artis-Payne "could hear his name called in the middle or later rounds" next month.

Minnesota tight end Maxx Williams "looked good in pass catching drills" at Monday's pro day, wrote TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"While I don't consider Williams a first-round selection, a number of teams disagree," Pauline wrote. "Last night, I was informed every team between picks 26 through 32, except for the Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts, will consider selecting Williams late in Round 1." It's not a terribly surprising report, as most think Williams is going to go late in Round 1 or early in Round 2, but it's fun to guess who might pull the trigger. Teams in the range Pauline is discussing include the Ravens, Broncos, Packers, and Seahawks.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports Auburn RB Corey Grant "sealed himself as a late-round pick" with his pro day performance.

Outside of SEC country, Grant was a little known backup before today, but the rest of the country is learning about him quickly. That's because Grant ran a stupid 4.27 forty at Auburn's pro day Tuesday (some had him at 4.25). Pauline reports that the Falcons, Dolphins and Patriots "have shown great interest" in the speedy ball carrier. "Grant is an explosive open-field runner with return skills and someone who should've received a combine invite," Pauline wrote. In other drills, the 5-foot-11, 201-pound Grant leaped 37 inches in the vertical, 10-7 in the broad and posted 22 reps on the bench.
