Florida State redshirt sophomore WR Kelvin Benjamin caught nine passes for 212 yards and three touchdowns in the school's 37-7 win over Florida.

Benjamin is one of the top draft-eligible receiver talents, but isn't frequently discussed among prospects at the position. We think there is a good chance he declares, since Benjamin turns 23 in February. He dominates at the catch point, which is a vital skill in today's NFL.

USC DL Leonard Williams only recorded one QB hit and two hurries on 3rd and long snaps in 2014, according to PFF.

He also did not register a sack in this area. Obviously it is a very select number of snaps, but it could be a number worthy of your attention. Despite the glowing praise Williams receives, Rotoworld and other evaluators have questioned the DL's explosiveness to disrupt. Some place that on a reactive scheme, but Williams tested like an average athlete. That is not to say Williams isn't a good prospect. He absolutely is thanks to powerful hands, length and ability to shed.

ESPN's Mel Kiper believes Miami WR Phillip Dorsett has "star" written all over him.

"Great speed. Tremendously explosive," Kiper says. Dorsett certainly shines in one area, and that is straight line speed. He can stretch out a defense in that area. A question is if you can count on him to win underneath and when contested. He might be a role player in our eyes, which there is nothing wrong with, but Kiper recently said Dorsett is clearly in the first-round mix.

A "number of scouts" prefer Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson over Brett Hundley and Bryce Petty, according to Phil Savage.

This does not surprise us at all. Somewhat in the same vein as Jameis Winston in terms of "translatable concepts," Grayson worked through progressions under Jim McElwain. McElwain did keep it simple (which more coaches should do), but asked his quarterbacks to move in the pocket, move their launching point and make decisions before and after the snap.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah believes a team "is going to get a steal" in Kansas State WR Tyler Lockett.

Jeremiah says Lockett is "always open" while looking at the depth of this receiver class. Lockett flashes playing big despite a smaller frame, but he is better when creating separation with burst and quickness. A second day selection is likely in Lockett's future.

The Patriots staff, including HC Bill Belichick, put Georgia WR Chris Conley through an on-campus workout on Wednesday.

Georgia's pro day is not until March 18, but teams can visit prospects on campus as often as they want. It is one way teams work around the 30 allotted in-house visits. COnley blew up the Combine with his combination of straight-line speed and explosive jumps, but his change of direction was well below average. We wonder how high Conley will go in the draft, and if the third-round is a legitimate possibility.

The sixth season of Jon Gruden’s "QB Camp" will feature five quarterbacks.

Participants include Jameis Winston of Florida State, Marcus Mariota of Oregon, Bryce Petty of Baylor, Brett Hundley of UCLA, and Garrett Grayson of Colorado State. The show, which featured nine quarterback prospects in 2014, premieres Tuesday, April 7 at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2. No word on why the network cut back on profiles, but Sean Mannion, Brandon Bridge, Cody Fajardo, Bryan Bennett and others would probably like an explanation.

NFL Films' Greg Cosell called Georgia RB Todd Gurley "the best back in the draft."

"I like Gurley more (than Melvin Gordon)," Cosell said. "Gurley, to me, has elements of Steven Jackson in his prime and Marshawn Lynch. He's that kind of runner. He's got an excellent combination of size, power, short-area quickness and burst, and top-end acceleration. I like Gurley a lot. And he looks like an NFL foundation back. I think he can be the starting point of an NFL offense." You already know we're on the same page, as perhaps no analyst or news organization is as high on Gurley as Rotoworld, which ranks the 20-year-old No. 5 overall. "A complete back who can be the foundation of an offense," wrote lead site draft analyst Josh Norris. "Will pick up the yards blocked for him and also create on his own, both after contact and beating defenders' angles. Agility to weave between lanes without wasted movement is a plus. Comfortable as a receiver on screens with patience to make most of blocks."

Purdue senior RB Akeem Hunt clocked a 4.37 second 40 and a 3.96 second short shuttle at his pro day Wednesday.

"Hunt was very impressive today," TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline wrote. In addition to his stopwatch times, Hunt leaped to a vertical jump of 37 1/2 inches and a broad jump of 10-2. "During drills, he looked outstanding at catching the ball," Pauline wrote. "Like Corey Grant of Auburn, Hunt is a legitimate triple-threat skill player with the ability to carry the ball around the perimeter, catch the ball out of the backfield, or line up and return kicks or punts. Someone will get a steal in the late rounds or as an undrafted FA with him." Pauline compared Hunt to Darren Sproles in early October, writing that despite being just 5-foot-8, 185 pounds, Hunt "plays big" and has a similar style to the Eagles' runner.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline reports that "scouts were very impressed" with Auburn WR Sammie Coates pro day workout.

"Especially the consistency of his hands, which has been an issue since the season," Pauline wrote. The analyst additionally passed along that both Coates and RB Cameron Artis-Payne met privately with the Browns on Wednesday. The dispatch about Coates' hands is great news for the prospect. The 6-foot-2, 213-pound wideout has 4.4 speed, but's Lance Zierlein previously wrote that Coates has "some of the worst hands" he's seen on tape.

Mississippi State ILB Benardrick McKinney "looked good in pass-rush drills" at Wednesday's pro day, noted TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

The analyst reported earlier that McKinney met with the New York Jets, who reportedly have great interest in the Bulldog prospect and have a potential ILB vacancy with David Harris testing free agency. Connecting the dots a bit more, New York Jets defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers was on hand to watch McKinney's workout. Almost 30 teams in all were represented at the scouting event.

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.
