Cardinals signed Alabama QB Jake Coker.

Coker (6'6/244) rode the bench behind E.J. Manuel and Jameis Winston at Florida State before transferring to Alabama, where he went 14-0 as a one-year starter for the national champs. As a senior, Coker completed 66.9% of his throws for 3,110 yards (7.91 YPA) and a 21:8 TD-to-INT ratio. Coker offers NFL size and a "winner" track record, but he is a Mettenbergerian pocket sloth with shaky arm strength and accuracy, and a tendency to wilt and take sacks under pressure. Coker's upside is a long-term clipboard holder.

Panthers signed Marshall RB Devon Johnson.

Johnson (6'1/238) spent time at tight end, linebacker, and fullback before switching to tailback as a junior and senior, finishing his career with a 305-2,373-25 (7.8 YPC) rushing line but only 27 receptions. Johnson's final year was derailed by a back injury that cost him six games. He excelled at the Thundering Herd's Pro Day, running 4.59 with a 33-inch vertical. Nicknamed "Rockhead" for his bruising, no-frills playing style, Johnson has a future in the league on special teams and perhaps as a short-yardage runner.

Titans signed Kansas State CB Morgan Burns.

Burns (5'10/200) was a prolific college return specialist, earning 2015 Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Year and tying K-State's school record for career kickoff return TDs (4). Burns also made 24 starts at corner, recording four interceptions. A surprise Combine snub, Burns ran 4.40 at Kansas State's Pro Day with a 32 1/2-inch vertical. Burns is a long shot to make it as an NFL cornerback, but he should be able to parlay his special teams prowess into a career.

The Vikings are moving RT T.J. Clemmings to left tackle.

Clemmings started all 16 games at right tackle as a rookie last season, but with Phil Loadholt (Achilles') healthy and Andre Smith aboard as competition, Clemmings will kick to the left side and operate as Matt Kalil's backup. Clemmings may eventually be groomed as the future left tackle.

Patriots signed Florida Atlantic CB Cre’Von LeBlanc.

LeBlanc (5'10/185) was a two-year starter and four-year contributor in the Owls' secondary, tallying six career interceptions and 23 pass breakups. He earned second-team All-Conference USA as a senior. A sub-par athlete for his size, LeBlanc managed a 4.65 forty with a 9-foot-6 broad jump at FAU's Pro Day. LeBlanc is diminutive with especially short arms (28 5'8") and will have to dominate at slot corner to have any chance at earning NFL defensive snaps. Ultimately, he may max out as a camp body.

Patriots signed Auburn CB Jonathan Jones.

Jones (5'9/186) started for two years at Auburn, collecting seven career interceptions and two forced fumbles. He earned first-team All-SEC honors as a senior from the conference's coaches. Jones torched the Combine with a 4.33 forty, 10-foot-3 broad jump, and 19 reps on the bench. Jones' biggest drawback is his size. He's too small to man perimeter corner, and a deficient tackler as it pertains to the slot. Despite explosive qualities, Jones may struggle to find an NFL home.

Colts signed USC DT Delvon Simmons.

Simmons (6'5/298) spent his first two college seasons at Texas Tech and his final two at USC, tallying 20.5 career tackles for loss, eight sacks, and two forced fumbles. He showed plodding athleticism at the Trojans' Pro Day, running 5.46 with an 8-foot-2 broad jump. Simmons offers power and strength, but he isn't going to put pressure on NFL quarterbacks. At best, he'll be a rotational two-down run stopper.

Patriots signed Mississippi State LB C.J. Johnson.

Johnson (6'1/234) made 38 starts at Ole Miss, logging 27 career tackles for loss with 13.5 sacks and two forced fumbles. He played defensive end before transitioning to middle linebacker as a senior. Undersized and not especially athletic, Johnson ran 4.81 with a lineman-like 8-foot-6 broad jump and 27-inch vertical before the draft. Johnson also has an ugly history of knee and ankle injuries. A very low-ceiling prospect, Johnson's path to an NFL roster spot will be on special teams.
May 1 - 11:10 AM

Colts signed USC LB Anthony Sarao.

Sarao (5'11/219) started three seasons for the Trojans, tallying 12.5 career tackles for loss, seven sacks, and two interceptions. A severely undersized college inside linebacker, Sarao struggled at USC's Pro Day with a 4.86 forty and sluggish agility scores. Sarao succeeded on sheer effort and intensity in college. In the NFL, Sarao will need to kick tail on special teams to carve out a career.

Colts signed Cincinnati WR Mekale McKay.

McKay (6'4/207) spent three seasons at Cincinnati after transferring from Arkansas, finishing his Bearcats career with 87 catches for 1,717 yards (19.7 YPR) and 17 touchdowns. He showed good-not-great athleticism at the Combine, running 4.55 with a 35-inch vertical and 10-foot-3 broad jump. McKay struggled with drops in college and lacks crispness in his routes, but has some field-stretching tools. He reminds a bit of Raiders WR Andre Holmes.
May 1 - 11:05 AM

Patriots signed Mississippi State WR/TE De’Runnya Wilson.

Wilson (6'5/224) made 24 starts for the Bulldogs before turning pro, parlaying 133 career catches into 1,949 yards (14.7 YPR) and 22 TDs. He earned second-team All-SEC as a 2015 junior. Despite doubling as a basketball player at Mississippi State, Wilson proceeded to flunk the Combine, running 4.85 with a 28-inch vertical. Wilson also made poor use of his size in college, underwhelming in contested-catch situations. Optimists have compared Wilson to Plaxico Burress, but his skill set is more along the lines of Ramses Barden. He's a long shot.
May 1 - 11:05 AM

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.
May 1 - 11:02 AM

Chiefs signed Florida State LB Terrance Smith.

Smith (6'3/235) made 29 starts for the Seminoles, compiling 13 career tackles for loss, three sacks, and three forced fumbles. Smith earned second-team All-ACC in 2014 before battling a senior-year ankle injury that cost him four games. He showed passable athleticism in Indy, running 4.77 with a 34 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot broad jump. Smith looks good on the hoof, but he missed 24 tackles over his final two college seasons and wasn't an impact player in the ACC. He's a long shot to become a successful pro.
May 1 - 10:57 AM

Colts signed Georgia OLB Sterling Bailey.

Bailey (6'4/285) made 20 starts for the Bulldogs, managing four career tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks. A non-sudden, plodding mover, Bailey best projects as an early-down run defender who must leave the field on passing downs. He ran 5.23 at the Combine with a 9-foot-3 broad jump. Turning 24 early in his rookie season, Bailey is an over-aged role-player prospect with a low ceiling.
May 1 - 10:52 AM

Taylor Lewan is still penciled in as the Titans' starting left tackle.

The Titans traded up to No. 8 in the draft, where they were fully expected to select Ole Miss LT Laremy Tunsil. Instead, they went with Michigan State's Jack Conklin, who the Titans will likely start at right tackle. Lewan said he wouldn't have been comfortable playing on the right side. "I know I’m not a right tackle," he said. "I know my worth as a player, and I know that I’m a left tackle." Conklin will have to adjust after starting 35 college games at left tackle compared to only three on the right side.
