NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang lists Miami RB Mark Walton as the "must-watch" running back participating in the NFL Scouting Combine.

Walton was recently cleared as a full participant for the combine, and the former Hurricanes' tailback should "show out," as the kids say. As Rang notes, players who are coming off major injuries are often the most anticipated in the combine, and because Walton missed a large portion of the year after undergoing season-ending ankle surgery. "Though Walton only played two and a half seasons for the Hurricanes, he left tied for fifth in school history with 26 rushing touchdowns, a testament to the fluid change of direction and explosive acceleration that should result in impressive workout numbers," Rang writes. NFL Draft Scout currently has Walton as the 13th best running back in the class, which earns him a potential fourth-or-fifth round grade.

Kyle Posey of FanRag Sports ranks Florida State S Derwin James as the top prospect worth trading up for.

James has received lots of mock draft love in the 17-25 range, which Posey mentions. The difference is, Posey feels there's not reason for the safety to "fall" that far, believing he shouldn't leave the top 10. "Don’t listen to anyone who says he can’t cover," he writes. "They haven’t watched him. James is a star. James moves like a corner. He can stay with small shifty slot receivers or big tight ends. As a tackler, he does a great job of squaring up and wrapping ballcarriers to the ground." It seems like James is currently being viewed as a high-floor player, with some questions about his upside. If Posey is correct -- and there's a good chance -- those concerns will become invalid.

Florida received a verbal commitment from three-star 2019 LB Jammal Abrams.

Abrams hails from Birmingham, Alabama; and his final three were the Gators, Louisville and Oregon. He's rated the 18th best inside linebacker in the class by 247 Sports, and the 21st best player in the state of Alabama. This gives Dan Mullen four commits in his 2019 class, with three of them being of the three-star variety.

Four-star 2019 S Demani Richardson verbally committed to Texas A&M.

Richardson was reportedly down to Texas A&M, Texas, TCU and Alabama, but ultimately has verbally committed to the Aggies. He currently is ranked the sixth best safety in the class by 247 Sports composite rankings, and 140th overall. He also plays running back for Waxahachie high school in Texas, but most analysts believe he profiles best as a safety. It's just another big get for Jimbo Fisher and company for their already loaded 2019 class.

Penn State WR DaeSean Hamilton hauled in 73.3 percent of his "deep" passes last year, according to Pro Football Focus.

In this case, a deep pass constitutes a throw over 20-yards long. That 73.3 mark for Hamilton is exceptional, and it's not surprising that it lead all of the draft-eligible players in the FBS. There have been concerns about Hamilton's drops at times, but there's no question he's able to make plays down field, and he showed as much during the East-West Shrine and Senior Bowl events. Hamilton very likely is off the board before the end of Day 2.

Iowa signed previously uncommitted three-star 2018 S Julius Brents.

Brents was also considering schools like Michigan State, Louisville, NC State, Vanderbilt and Indiana, among others. He is rated the fourth best player to come out of Indiana, and the 30th best safety by 247 Sports composite rankings. Reports indicate he's long (6'2/177) and athletic safety, and that he's also a sure tackler. Those traits could make him a special-teams contributor as a freshman if he shows those skills once he enrolls.

Pro Football Focus named Ole Miss RB Jordan Wilkins as one of the running backs in the draft class that can help in the pass game as a professional.

Wilkins was third among FBS draft-eligible running backs in yards-after-catch with 13.4, showing his ability to make tacklers miss in the open field. He's not the fastest player in the class -- most expect him to run a 40-yard dash in the upper 4.5's -- but he has soft hands, and he has shown shiftiness despite his 6-foot-1, 215-pound size. He's also powerful, so he's not easy for linebackers or defensive backs to bring down. PFF also notes that he was excellent as a blocker; with his 85.2 grade as a pass blocker ranking fourth-best among draft-eligibles.

Three-star 2018 S Josiah Bradley signed with Nevada in December.

Bradley was one of the bigger gets for the Wolf Pack. The safety had offers from schools like Washington, Arizona State, California and Louisville, among others. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound defensive back was ranked the eighth best player coming out of the state of Arizona, and the 52nd best safety overall by 247 Sports.
