NFL.com's Lance Zierlein compares New Mexico State WR Jaleel Scott to Lions WR Kenny Golladay.

Zierlein projects Scott (6'5, 215) to go anywhere from the fourth-to-fifth round and considers him an "ascending prospect." Going more in-depth, "Scott saw both his production and confidence explode in 2017 and consistently found ways to win once the ball was in the air. Scott doesn't have the quickness to win underneath, but he does use stride length and hand fighting to create space for himself as a downfield threat." Scott is likely to be viewed as a backup with upside that will have to fight his way into a WR3 role on an NFL roster.

An NFC West Coast scout sees Stanford DT Harrison Phillips "as a day three player."

The scout is surprised how high the media has Phillips (6'4/278) ranked, questioning, " Where do you play him? Loses balance which makes nose tough and he doesn't have the athleticism to play with three-technique." NFL.com's Lance Zierlein compares him to Cincinnati Bengals DT Ryan Glasgow and projects Phillips to be selected in rounds 1-2. Zierlein explains, "Phillips plays a little upright and looks more like a guard than nose, but he definitely has the leverage and power to play to anchor and muddy the run game waters." He expects Phillips to be an early starter that could eventually "find snaps on passing downs as well."

An AFC team pro personnel director said Ohio State C Billy Price " Has a lot of edge" and "might hit 40 on the bench."

The pro personnel director also mentioned he love's Price's (6'4/315) "toughness" and "grit" and expects him to have a great combine. NFL.com's Lance Zierlein compares Price to LeCharles Bentley and projects him to be selected in the second round. Zierlein is also excited about his athleticism saying, "Price's power and leverage give him a huge advantage over most centers in this draft." He believes Price is an "early starter with Pro Bowl potential."

Yahoo's Pete Thamel reports UCLA has hired Boston College OL coach Justin Frye.

Frye spent the last five seasons at Boston College and has 11 total years of coaching experience. Frye helped construct multiple top-20 rushing offenses at Boston College, likely a big reason UCLA HC Chip Kelly's interest. Frye will likely have similar responsibilities to that of his current position with Boston College.

An NFC team West Coast scout said Washington Huskies WR Dante Pettis is "really good with his routes."

The scout also acknowledged Pettis'(6'1/192) punt return ability saying, "He's not incredibly fast which is why his punt return production is so impressive. He has a great feel for it." NFL.com's Lance Zierlein compares Pettis to T.J. Houshmandzadeh and projects him to be drafted in rounds 2-3. Zierlein say's he's a "solid secondary receiving option" that "may see snaps from the slot" due to his lack of physicality and ability to gain separation in press-coverage.

An NFC team executive said Western Michigan T Chukwuma Okorafor is "big and has talent so he's probably going to play early on."

The executive also mentioned, "He got started in football a little late but I still think he should have some of these issues cleaned up by now." NFL.com's Lance Zierlein compares Okorafor (6'6/331) to Buccaneers T Donovan Smith and projects him to be drafted in the second round. Zierlein says his "size and potential will likely get him drafted earlier than where the tape says he should go." Okorafor wasn't able to participate in the Senior Bowl, something that could have potentially helped his draft stock due to the questions surrounding his ability to compete against top-tier talent.

NFL.com's Lance Zierlein compares T Brian O'Neill to Bengals T Jake Fisher.

O'Neill (6'6/300) is projected to go in rounds 2-to-3, largely due to his great athleticism and length. After a poor Senior Bowl showing where O'Neill apparently "raised question marks" according to Bleacher Report's Matt Miller, Zierlein voiced other concerns saying, " O'Neill seemed to panic and lose technique in certain matchups" and "he needs to get thicker and stronger or swing tackle could be his ceiling." For a player that has been discussed as a potential first-round pick, there seems to be a lot of concern.

Alabama redshirt sophomore TE Miller Forristall received a medical redshirt for the 2017 season.

Forristall (6'5/225) played in 15 games his freshman year and got the starting nod against Florida in the SEC Championship Game. Forristall fell to third on the depth chart behind Hale Hentges in 2017. Receiving a medical redshirt is good news for Forristall, but he has a tough path to making an impact after recording only 6 career catches through two seasons.
