Arizona State edge player Carl Bradford has four private meetings scheduled with NFL teams.

Those four teams are the "Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, San Diego Chargers and Atlanta Falcons," according Aaron Wilson, who notes that teams are targeting Bradford in the second-round. We wouldn't be surprised to see Bradford selected in the third-round, and some even point to a position switch, possibly even inside linebacker.

Arizona State RB Marion Grice held a private workout for 15 NFL teams on campus Tuesday.

The broken left fibula that ended his 2013 season prematurely also kept Grice out of the combine and the Sun Devils' pro day on March 7. Grice (6-foot 1/2, 208 pounds) didn't have a great day, running forties of 4.68 and 4.69 seconds. "He caught the ball extremely well out of the backfield, but did not show a lot of explosion in the running back drills," observed NFL.com's Gil Brandt. "That might be because he is not yet fully recovered from his leg injury. Grice appears to be a likely third-day selection in the 2014 NFL Draft."

Arizona State RB Marion Grice met with Patriots staff members on Monday.

Grice has been unable to work out during the draft process due to a broken left fibula, but will hold a personal workout on April 8. He might be a better receiving option out of the backfield than ball carrier, but that is a coveted skill at the NFL level.

The Patriots put Arizona State S Alden Darby through a private workout.

Darby attended East-West Shrine week and intercepted two passes in the actual game, which followed his All-Pac 12 selection by conference coaches. The Patriots have surprised many with their safety selections in recent years, and Darby could be the next one on the list.

Arizona State RB Marion Grice is still recovering from a broken left fibula and is expected to hold a pro day workout on April 8.

Grice attempted to play through leg injuries in November and December, but we did not know the ailment was so serious. The running back did not work out at the NFL Combine. Grice's best trait might be his comfort as a receiver.

NFL.com's Gil Brandt believes Arizona State DT Will Sutton is a third day pick "at best."

"He showed a strong club in his workout, but other than that he was pretty average," Brandt writes. "This is a guy who some projected as a first-round pick last summer, but after further review he’s probably a third-day pick at best." Rotoworld's Josh Norris is still a big fan of Sutton's, citing his hand use to keep the opposition off balance, but Sutton's balance did take a hit with the added weight.

In lieu of Arizona State DT Will Sutton's poor Pro Day, NFL.com's Gil Brandt pegs him a "third-day pick at best."

"He showed a strong club in his workout, but other than that he was pretty average," a disappointed Brandt observed. Sutton, who weighed 18 pounds less at his Pro Day than he did at the Senior Bowl, appears to have implemented a strategy to cut weight to improve testing speed. He's played better at lower weights, so perhaps he should consider remaining static. Sutton ran a 5.31 forty, a 4.57 short shuttle and a 7.70 3-cone drill at Sun Devils Stadium.

Arizona State edge rusher Carl Bradford projects near the end of the third round, believes NFL.com's Gil Brandt.

Bradford (6-foot-1 1/8, 251 pounds) has told evaluators that he's capable of playing almost every position in a seven-man front. In addition to that versatility, he's an instinctive defender off the edge with superior athleticism and explosion. "Bradford reminds a lot of people of the Ravens’ Terrell Suggs; he's not quite in Suggs' class, but his mannerisms and the way he plays are similar," wrote Brandt. "He looked very good in his linebacker drills Friday and will probably be a second-day choice, down near the end of the third round." At Arizona State's Pro Day on Friday, he ran the forty in 4.68 and 4.70 seconds, had a 4.37 short shuttle and a 7.06 3-cone drill.

AZCentral's Doug Haller reported that Arizona State RB Marion Grice will have his Pro Day on April 8th.

"ASU running back Marion Grice, still working to get back into shape following his foot injury, will have a Pro Day on April 8 at ASU," Haller tweeted. Grice recently sat out of ASU's March 7th Pro Day in order to be fully healthy for April 8th. Grice is considered by evaluators to be a sleeper pick in this years draft, but he'll have to put on a show at his Pro Day to improve his stock to be drafted.

Arizona State DT Will Sutton weighed in at 297 pounds at the school's pro day.

Sutton was 303 pounds at the NFL Combine and 315 pounds at the Senior Bowl. We understand many will be down on Sutton due to last season's weight gain, but the larger frame impacted Sutton's balance and base more than his quickness. Rotoworld's Josh Norris is still a massive fan of Sutton's game.

Arizona State edge rusher Carl Bradford believes he can play almost every position in a seven-man front.

"I talked a lot more to 3-4 teams about playing on the outside at linebacker than being a true d-end. I got a lot of teams talking to me about playing middle 'backer as well, which I would love. I also got asked to play just a rush end. I had a team talk to me about playing three-technique on the line in some pass situations. I believe I could play almost every position in the seven-man front," Bradford said. While Bradford might not have the length(6 foot 1 and 250 pounds)he does show power and explosion when rushing the passer. With his athleticism and instincts he could be utilized more as an inside linebacker at the next level.

Arizona State edge rusher Carl Bradford ranks as a top 20 prospect on CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler's board.

Bradford "has some tweener traits and won't fit every defense, but he has the initial quickness and power to be effective as a stand-up rusher," writes Brugler. This places Bradford over other edge rushers like Kony Ealy, Scott Crichton and Dee Ford.

Arizona State DT Will Sutton was clocked at 5.37 and 5.47 in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine.

You'd hope for better from a diminutive DT prospect who was a 270-pound Tazmanian devil as recently as the 2012 season, but if Sutton has to run forty yards on an NFL field during a game, something has gone terribly wrong. Now 6-foot-1, 303 pounds (after weighing 315 pounds at the Senior Bowl), Sutton projects comfortably into any 4-3 scheme. Rotoworld's Josh Norris is higher on the ASU product than most, calling him a top-20 prospect.

Arizona State edge player Carl Bradford measured in at 6 foot 1 and 250 pounds at the NFL Combine.

Bradford also has 30 1/4" arms and 9 1/2" hands. The length will be an issue with many teams, but Bradford does exhibit a nice motor when crashing down on the edge. He will likely be a second day pick.
Feb 22 - 2:57 PM

Arizona State DT Will Sutton weighed in at 303 pounds at the NFL Combine.

Sutton was 6 foot and 3/4 inch and 315 pounds at the Senior Bowl. Many bashed the defensive tackles final season, pointing to added weight for his drop in production. While our own Josh Norris thinks the weight gain impacted Sutton's balance, he still ranks him as a top 20 prospect.
