Colts signed Tennessee OLB Curt Maggitt.

Maggitt (6'3/247) made 29 starts at Tennessee before missing all but two games as a senior with a chipped bone in his hip. He looked to be coming on in his junior campaign, breaking out for 15 tackles for loss and 11 sacks. Maggitt still wasn't recovered in time to work out before the draft. Amid obvious injury flags -- he also tore his ACL in college -- Maggitt is a passionate and highly competitive rush end-'backer with edge burst to disrupt enemy quarterbacks. Maggitt has upside if he can get and stay healthy.

Seahawks signed Colorado State CB DeAndre Elliott.

Elliott (6'1/188) made 33 starts for the Rams, tallying 27 career pass breakups and seven interceptions. Elliott's stock received a jolt at the Combine, where he showed average long speed (4.55) but blew up the vertical (41") and broad (10'5") jumps as well as agility drills. Elliott gave up just one touchdown pass and a 40.5% completion rate on throws into his coverage as a senior. Elliott has plus traits, but he wasn't quite a dominant college player and his speed is concerning. Either way, he's worth a shot.

Rotoworld's Evan Silva graded the Broncos' draft class a B.

"I understand that [Rd. 1 QB Paxton] Lynch isn't ready to play today, but I'm taking a glass-half-full view under Elway and Gary Kubiak's guidance," Silva wrote. The analyst also applauded Denver's middle-round selections, lauding Boston College S Justin Simmons for his "playmaking ability and plus athleticism", Utah RB Devontae Booker for his "steadiness, versatility, and ability to make himself skinny through small cracks", Missouri OG Connor McGovern for his "drive-blocking upside and zone-scheme fit. Silva thinks Rd. 2 Georgia Tech DE Adam Gotsis will help help replace Malik Jackson.

Broncos signed Oregon WR Bralon Addison.

Addison (5'9/197) earned second-team All-Pac 12 honors as a senior, finishing his career with 146 catches for 1,937 yards (13.3 YPR) and 20 touchdowns. He added three career punt return TDs. An impact college slot receiver and return specialist, Addison likely lacks the requisite size and athleticism to become a regular NFL contributor after running 4.66 with a 9-foot-8 broad jump at the Combine. He's a poor man's Jamison Crowder.

Saints signed Ole Miss S Trae Elston.

Elston (5'11/193) earned second-team All-America and first-team All-SEC as a senior, finishing his career with 11 tackles for loss, 29 pass breakups, and five interceptions as a four-year starter. Elston's Pro Day was mediocre, running 4.50 with a 9-foot-11 broad jump and sluggish agility scores. A rover linebacker and safety at Ole Miss, Elston is a 'tweener slot corner-safety whose NFL ticket is likely on special teams.
May 3 - 11:13 PM

Vikings signed Georgia LB Jake Ganus.

Ganus (6'2/232) spent one year at Georgia after transferring from UAB, leading the Bulldogs with 102 tackles (5 TFL) and catching two interceptions. Ganus' athletic deficiencies showed up at the UGA Pro Day, running 4.85 with a 9-foot-5 broad jump. In addition to his modest athleticism, Ganus' short arms (29") limit him in coverage and he doesn't pack thump as a run stopper. Ganus will have to earn his NFL keep on special teams.

Raiders sign Cincinnati WR Johnny Holton.

Holton (6'1/190) spent two years as a Bearcat after transferring from JUCO, playing special teams and earning sub-package work at wideout. He finished his career with a 46-892-10 (19.4 YPR) receiving line and pedestrian 20.9 yards per kickoff return. Holton's lack of college dominance combined with his average athleticism -- 4.54 forty, 31 1/2-inch vertical -- make him an NFL long shot barring Pro Bowl-level gunner production.

SI's Peter King reports that the Ravens had "reliable information" that the Patriots would try to draft Navy RB/WR Keenan Reynolds in Rd. 6 before Baltimore beat them to it.

Baltimore plucked Reynolds with the No. 182 overall pick. New England had a pair of sixth-rounders later in the stanza. King reports that the Ravens will likely as Reynolds to be an "all-purpose weapon ... returning, rushing, receiving, sort of a latter-day Antwaan Randle-El ... receiver/returner, and maybe a direct-snap back." GM Ozzie Newsome and assistant GM Eric DeCosta found out that Reynolds was learning how to return from Brian Mitchell, one of the all-time greats at it. HC John Harbaugh called Mitchell, a former player, and was told that Reynolds "could be a gifted returner." The rest was history.

Bucs signed Colorado State TE Kivon Cartwright.

Cartwright (6'4/243) made 34 starts for the Rams, parlaying 75 catches into 1,136 yards (15.1 YPR) and 11 TDs. He made honorable mention All-Mountain West as a senior. Snubbed for a Combine invite, Cartwright displayed adequate athletic ability at Colorado State's Pro Day, running 4.77 with a 34 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-8 broad jump. Cartwright is built big with long arms (33 3/4") and huge hands (10 7/8"), but lacks fluidity in his movements and blocked poorly in college.
May 3 - 10:30 PM

Steelers signed Duke P Will Monday.

Monday (6'4/212) punted for the Blue Devils all four years of his college career, setting a Duke school record for career yards per punt (46.5). 88 of Monday's 260 career punts (33.8%) were downed inside the opposing 20-yard line, a mark he improved to 47% as a senior. Monday has NFL-level leg strength, but will need to improve his hang time to last in the pros.
May 3 - 10:24 PM

Lions signed Ohio CB Ian Wells.

Wells (5'11/199) was a 3 1/2-year starter in the Bobcats' secondary, breaking out as a senior to earn second-team All-MAC from the conference's coaches with ten pass breakups and two interceptions. His stock rose at Ohio's Pro Day, running 4.49 with a 41-inch vertical and 11-foot-4 broad jump. Wells' college production was marginal, but he has plus size and terrific athleticism and is worth a developmental flyer.
May 3 - 10:16 PM

Giants signed Liberty QB Josh Woodrum.

Woodrum (6'3/231) finished his Liberty career with school records in passing yards (10,266), completions (833) and attempts (1,304), and second in school history with 61 touchdown passes. He was a second-team All-Big South pick in each of his final three seasons. Described by NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah as a plus-sized quarterback with a "compact release, velocity, and touch," Woodrum played in a very conservative small-school offense but has some NFL-level traits. He's a project worth a shot.
May 3 - 10:09 PM

Chargers sign Penn State CB Trevor Williams.

Williams (5'11/191) converted from receiver to cornerback and went on to start for 2 1/2 seasons, collecting five interceptions and earning All-Big Ten honorable mention as a senior. Williams was an average college player whose stock elevated in pre-draft workouts, blazing 4.44 with a 10-foot-5 broad jump at Penn State's Pro Day.
May 3 - 10:01 PM

Seahawks signed Arizona G Lene Maiava.

Maiava (6'5/314) spent 2013-2014 as a rotational guard-tackle at U of A before taking over as the Wildcats' starting right tackle as a senior. He has plus arm length (33 5/8") and big (10 1/2"), heavy hands. A powerful drive blocker with impressive weight-room strength (34 reps of 225), Maiava struggled in pass protection when placed at tackle, but looked better on junior tape at guard. Maiava has some potential to develop into a useful swing reserve, or perhaps a short-term starter.
May 3 - 9:55 PM

Bucs signed West Georgia OG Dominique Robertson.

Robertson (6'5/324) transferred from Texas Tech to West Georgia for his senior year, earning first-team Division II All-American honors for his elite performance at left tackle. Robertson has incredibly long arms (36"), but still pumped 225 pounds 30 times on the bench in Indy. A traits-based project, Robertson combines NFL-caliber movement skills with blind-side length. While not remotely ready to play, Robertson is worth a look as a developmental flier.
