Some teams want Missouri DL Kony Ealy to add 15 pounds and play DT, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

It makes sense, as Ealy "wins" from the inside thanks to his change of direction ability and tendency to be heavier footed offensive linemen laterally. Ealy posted a very good 3-cone time at the Combine, best of the DL group, but he lacks hand and leg drive on contact. Teams could view Ealy as the next best three technique behind Aaron Donald.

The Chargers are putting Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer through a private workout on Friday, according to Ian Rapoport.

The Chargers, Saints, Chiefs and Cardinals continue to be interested in the top quarterback names despite having a starting quarterback on the roster. This adds fuel to the fire that these teams could lock up the longterm replacement before teams with immediate quarterback needs draft them. We contend DeShone Kizer's 2015 tape is the best in this class.

Cardinals team owner Michael Bidwell and head coach Bruce Arians attended a workout for Texas Tech QB Pat Mahomes, according to Ian Rapoport.

It is uncommon for an owner to attend such events, but Bidwell can be hands on. Remember, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie joined his staff last year to visit Carson Wentz and Jared Goff. The Cardinals are one of the teams with a future need at quarterback, a spot that might be addressed in this draft to jumpstart the progression. Mahomes' big arm certainly fits the Cardinals' vertical style.

Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey took part in wide receiver drills during Thursday's pro day.

No huge surprise there. A huge part of McCaffrey's appeal comes in the fact that he is a silky smooth receiver. "It’s something I pride myself on, being extremely versatile and I feel like I can do that stuff," McCaffrey said. "To show coaches I can play running back, I can play receiver, I can do all the return game stuff, that’s important to me." During pro day festivities, the 6-foot, 202-pounder opted to stand pat on his sharp Combine testing results. We are starting to see him creep into the creamy middle of the first round in mock drafts, with ESPN's Todd McShay pegging him to the Eagles with the No. 14 pick in his latest mock up.

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 Buccaneers 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.
