Wyoming junior QB Brett Smith did not receive an invitation to the NFL Combine, according to Murphy McGuire.

Smith declared for the draft after his junior season, and while some like his mobile style and see talent, the selection committee does not seem to agree. Smith has a bit of a Johnny Manziel-like play style, but not receiving an invitation to the Combine is not a good sign. Obviously many prospects succeed who are not in Indianapolis, although we are surprised by the news.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline writes that he "fully expect the Vikings to grab a linebacker in Round 2, 3 or 4 during the 2015 NFL Draft."

Within the past week, the Vikings have worked out or met with Utah edge rusher Nate Orchard and North Dakota State edge rusher Kyle Emanuel, and a few weeks ago they traveled to Michigan to see Jake Ryan. The Purple have Anthony Barr locked into one outside gig for the next decade, but OLB Chad Greenway might only have one year left and the team probably would like to find competition to push MLB Gerald Hodges.

Alabama redshirt sophomore DL Jon Taylor, a Georgia transfer, was arrested on domestic violence III and criminal mischief charges.

The victim reportedly was Taylor's girlfriend and had "minor injuries to her neck from the assault," along with a hole being punched in the wall. Taylor was dismissed from Georgia after an aggravated assault/family violence charge and arrest, which followed a previous "theft by deception" charge.

After recording a 4.57 forty at the Combine, LSU EDGE Danielle Hunter produced a 36 1/2" vertical, 10'10" broad jump and 6.95 3-cone at the school's pro day.

These are outstanding times for a 6'5/252 lbs edge player, however, they need to be kept in perspective. Hunter is solely a run defender at this time. He will absolutely flash as a pass rusher, but Hunter will need to turn a weakness into a strength in order to succeed on passing downs in the NFL. It is somewhat a common theme with LSU players in recent years. Still, these numbers project to a player who can convert speed to power.

The Jets are working out Oregon QB Marcus Mariota on Saturday in Eugene, according to Manish Mehta.

"General manager Mike Maccagnan and five key team decision-makers will hold a private workout for Marcus Mariota on Saturday," Mehta writes. Teams are not limited by restrictions for these on-campus workouts outside of money they are willing to spend. Beat writer Rich Cimini recently said the Jets are more likely to trade back to acquire more picks rather than pick Marcus Mariota.

The Chargers will put Oregon QB Marcus Mariota through a private workout on April 15, according to Albert Breer.

We knew the team would work out Mariota, but now a date has been set. The initial report was the first link between San Diego, Mariota and a possible Philip Rivers departure, which is a connection that has gained steam. We think something is actually there, even if it does not come to fruition. The great Adam Schefter seems confident Mariota and Jameis Winston will be the top two picks in some order.

Texas A&M Commerce WR Ricky Collins will visit the 49ers, according to Matt Barrows.

Barrows adds Collins has a visit with the Browns scheduled as well. Both Collins and receiver teammate Vernon Johnson have received plenty of attention from NFL teams, and each lit up the division II level. Collins recorded 71 catches for 1,187 yards and 14 touchdowns last year.

San Diego State T Terry Poole will visit the Eagles, according to Bo Marchionte.

The report includes Poole has been worked out by the Houston Texans and the Arizona Cardinals. Poole accepted an invitation to the East West Shrine Game and tested like an average athlete at the NFL Combine. He played left tackle during his final season at SD State.

Texas Southern CB Tray Walker has visits with eight teams scheduled, according to Tony Pauline.

This means the media, including this site, is behind on Walker. Those eight teams include the Arizona Cardinals, Oakland Raiders, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, Atlanta Falcons, Denver Broncos, Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints. Walker is a physical specimen, measuring in at 6'2 3/4" and 189 lbs, recording a 36.5-inch vertical jump and 10-7 broad jump. Walker ran in the mid-4.4s and posted a 4.05 short shuttle and a sub-6.7 3-cone. Teams love length at corner, and Walker fits the bill.

Washington LB Shaq Thompson is scheduled to visit the Vikings, according to Darren Wolfson.

This connection makes a lot of sense. In fact, we might narrow the Vikings' first-round selection down to linebacker or cornerback. Thompson surprisingly tested like an average athlete for the position at the Combine, but he is very fluid on the field and will stay in games for all three downs. Mike Zimmer found his strong side backer who can blitz in Anthony Barr last year. Thompson could fill the weakside spot and be a missile from the back side.

Louisville WR DeVante Parker will visit the Ravens prior to the draft, according to Aaron Wilson.

Wilson confirms visits to the Dolphins and Titans. Visits means different things for different teams, but the Ravens certainly are focusing on prospects projected to be earlier than the No. 26 pick. The teams has an obvious need at receiver, and Parker has flashed ability to win in both the big and small games.

Utah DB Eric Rowe "is flying up draft boards and most feel there's no way he gets out of the second round," reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Last week, Pauline reported Rowe had visits scheduled with the Dolphins, Ravens and Lions, and now he passes along that the Philadelphia Eagles "are very high on Rowe, who's drawing intrigue based on his size/speed and ability to line-up at either cornerback or safety." The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Rowe ran a 4.45 40 at the combine.
