TCU senior WR Brandon Carter is unlikely to play this season, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

TCU head coach Gary Patterson said Carter "probably will not play this year. Academically he will not make it." Carter was arrested in April on possession of marijuana; charges were later dropped. Patterson's response to a question about whether he wanted Carter to stick around the school to regain eligibility was ominous. "No. He has a redshirt year and I think the best thing for him is to get a new start," he said. "It's setting a precedent - you have to go to school." Carter was a five-star recruit who caught 90 passes for 1,312 yards with nine touchdowns over the past three seasons. His NFL prospects are precarious at best.

FSU RB Dalvin Cook ran a forty in the mid-4.4s at his pro day on Tuesday.

This is a slight improvement upon Cook's 4.49-second 40-yard showing at the NFL Scouting Combine earlier this month. Cook struggled in other testing metrics, but his speed isn't a concern. "I don't think [the pro day 40 time] affects him one way or the other. His 40 time at the combine was more than fast enough. He plays fast, so I don't think that's any concern," said NFL.com analyst Lance Zierlein. "I know he didn't test as explosively as people wanted at the combine, so I'm sure scouts wanted to see him jump again, but for me, it's more about whether he can stay healthy and how teams view him character-wise."

At 6-foot 1/8, 234 pounds, Texas RB D'Onta Foreman posted a 33-inch vertical and a 4.45s 40 at his pro day event on Tuesday.

If you bake that forty time -- stunning for a big man -- in with his other NFL Combine testing numbers, Foreman becomes one of this class' best overall athletes. And as for that missing Combine forty? Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reported that NFL Combine doctors disallowed Foreman from running in Indianapolis due to a stress fracture in his foot. Pauline added that "several team doctors on hand thought it was no big deal" and that Foreman was "willing to sign a waiver should anything occur while he ran." The NFL's doctors remained firm and withheld him. If Tuesday is any indication, the injury is already healed.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said his team will not trade the No. 1 pick of the draft.

"No, I can tell you no on that one," he said. Jackson made the comment in response to a question about the possibility of trading for New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo. If this isn't an indication that Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett has locked himself into the top overall slot, than we don't know what is. The Browns may use the No. 12 overall pick to go shopping for the quarterback they so desperately need.

Florida CB Teez Tabor's fastest unofficial forty was clocked at 4.75s at the Gators' pro day workout on Tuesday.

This is a disheartening development for his evaluation. Tabor began moving out of the first-round conversation earlier this month when he clocked a 4.62s forty at the NFL Scouting Combine. He needed to improve upon that number at his pro day workout, but strangely regressed upon it instead. To put his time in perspective, it was slower than 6-foot-4, 280-pound FSU DE DeMarcus Walker's 4.76 showing. "The magic number for corners is 4.60. Anything above that, and the alarm goes off," Jeremiah said. "That could have a major impact. People can say the 40 is overrated, but the one position where it matters most is corner. Teams will take his best time, which was at the combine -- his magnet on everybody's board will say 4.62 -- but this was a big opportunity to help himself, and he didn't." NFL Network's Mike Mayock's dropped Tabor out of his top-five rankings at the position.

ESPN.com's Edward Aschoff reports that Florida redshirt freshman QB Feleipe' Franks is the "presumed leader" in the starting quarterback competition.

That comes with a big caveat. Florida's spring QB derby is without incumbent starter Luke Del Rio as he recovers from offseason shoulder surgery. But Franks appears to be ahead of Kyle Trask at this time. If that holds, he'll have a real chance to unseat Del Rio, a game manager. Franks is a former four-star recruit with a big personality and a howitzer for an arm, while Trask is a soft-spoken, overlooked former three-star recruit. "It’s not just competing to be the quarterback at the University of Florida, I want to bring the swag back to Florida," Franks said. "I want to be the guy that the whole country is talking about. I have that in myself, and I’m going to do everything in my power to make everybody to realize that."

NFL.com's Lance Zierlein projected Temple LB/EDGE Haason Reddick to go off the board at No. 5 to the Titans.

No prospect has improved their evaluation more during the process than Reddick. He fits in every scheme thanks to his pass rushing skill and comfort in open space when dropping into coverage. He can bend while turning the corner and close thanks to great athleticism. He could be the first off-ball linebacker off the board, or one of the top three edge rushers off the board.

San Francisco 49ers GM John Lynch believes this year's quarterback crop is getting a bad rap.

"As I started to study these guys, I thought they were getting a bad rap," Lynch said. "They each have reasons why maybe people think they shouldn't go (No.) 2. In Trubisky's case, he's only started 13 games, but you turn on the tape with each of them, and they have redeeming qualities that make you say, 'Wow, this guy would be a part of it,' so we're evaluating them and we'll continue to do so." The 49ers hold the No. 2 overall pick and are, of course, desperate for quarterback help. Most believe they'll wait to get it. Lynch is a known fan of Kizer's. "One of the first things Kyle and I talked about (is) you've got to have a franchise quarterback. We know that, we're in search of it, and we're looking at every avenue to try and get that," Lynch added.

The 49ers worked out Clemson QB Deshaun Watson last week.

San Francisco GM John Lynch also attended the North Carolina and Notre Dame pro days last week to check out QBs Mitchell Trubisky and DeShone Kizer. Lynch previously fawned over Kizer at the NFL Scouting Combine. Since Myles Garrett is a near lock to go No. 1 overall, the 49ers would have their pick of signal-calling prospects at No. 2 if they chose to go that direction. Not many industry types, however, are mocking a quarterback to the 49ers in the first round.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports that UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky is expected to attend the Browns' local prospects day.

The Cleveland Plain-Dealer reported last week that the Browns had scheduled Trubisky for a private workout, and now we know the details of his trip. Usually, teams must travel to the prospect's respective campus if they want a private workout, but Cleveland lucked out because Trubisky is an Ohio native, and thus able to conduct a workout at their facilities without the club being forced to burn one of their official pre-Draft visit slots. Cleveland owns the Nos. 1 and 12 overall picks.

Chip Brown of Horns Digest reports that Texas will pursue Notre Dame senior QB Malik Zaire as a graduate transfer.

Texas whiffed in its chase of LSU quarterback Brandon Harris -- Harris chose North Carolina -- and will now turn its attention to another marquee grad transfer. Horns HC Tom Herman has expressed interest in adding a veteran signal-caller to compete with sophomore Shane Buechele (the incumbent starter) and true freshman Sam Ehlinger. According to reports, Zaire was considering Wisconsin, Baylor and North Carolina immediately after he announced he'd leave Notre Dame. Since then, both Baylor and UNC have signed grad transfer quarterbacks.

Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell and general manager Bob Quinn privately worked out Arizona State WR Tim White.

At the Sun Devils' pro day event earlier this month, White clocked a 4.52s forty and posted a 38.5-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-10 broad. "He should receive late round consideration and nicely projects as a slot receiver/return specialist at the next level," wrote Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.
