UConn S Junior Lee has worked out for the Jets, Giants and Colts.

This according to the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson. During the UConn Pro Day, Lee -- who was buried on the depth chart as a third safety during his time with the Huskies -- ran the 40-yard dash in 4.50 seconds and showed respectable explosivity through a 37-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-6 broad jump. His lack of exposure in college could hinder his already thin-ice hopes of a Day 3 selection in this month's draft.

Connecticut redshirt sophomore RB Josh Marriner will transfer.

Marriner appeared in 12 games last season at tailback and on the kickoff return team. He finished the season with only 110 yards on the ground and a touchdown and added eight receptions for 71 yards and two tackles. Marriner was named to the American Athletic Conference All-Academic team in 2014.

UConn sophomore TE Tommy Myers (leg) is shooting for a return at spring practice.

A left leg injury kept Myers out of the final two games of the 2015 campaign. He's in the midst of rehabbing it at the moment and hopes he'll be able to participate in spring practice. Said the 6-foot-5, 255-pound sophomore, "I'm doing everything with the team and working out as much as possible, but being back for spring practice is the ultimate goal, not rushing anything now." This past season, he caught 16 passes for 232 yards (14.5 yards per reception) and two touchdowns.

UConn junior QB Tim Boyle will transfer.

Boyle's yet to announce his transfer destination. He opened speculation with a tweet that read "One door closes, another one opens" before subsequently confirming that a transfer's in the works. When he wasn't dabbling in intentionally vague tweets, the 6-foot-3, 224-pound junior spent the 2015 campaign playing sparingly. He completed 31-of-60 passes for 281 yards and two interceptions. For his career, Boyle holds a sad panda 1/13 TD/INT ratio.

CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang noted that Connecticut redshirt senior S Andrew Adams " has shown a knack for being in the right place at the right time."

Rang did offer a word of caution, writing that Adams "lacks the elite size-speed combination of an early-round choice." This season, the 6-foot, 197-pound redshirt senior has recorded 103 tackles (3.5 for loss) with three interceptions and three pass breakups. Rang concluded that "[Adams'] instincts, reliable open-field tackling and ball skills should earn him Day Three consideration for teams in need of help at safety and on special teams."

Connecticut sophomore CB Jamar Summers recorded his eighth interception of the season in Saturday's 16-10 loss to Marshall in the St. Petersburg Bowl.

Summers recorded six interceptions over the last five games early in the fourth quarter, when the Huskies were down 13-10. Unfortunately, UConn, as has been the case all year, was unable to capitalize offensively. The 6-foot, 185-pound Summers is not yet draft eligible and hasn't been discussed much by the NFL for that reason, but he figures to get some love from analysts and scouts this summer due to his work down the stretch.

UConn sophomore QB Bryant Shirreffs (head) is expected to play in the St. Petersburg Bowl.

Shirreffs suffered a blow to the head in the first quarter of the Huskies' second-to-last game against Houston. He subsequently sat out the team's 27-3 loss to Temple on November 28. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound sophomore's been cleared to practice without limitation, though, and should start against Marshall in the St. Petersburg Bowl on December 26. Prior to the injury, he was completing 60.3% of his passes for 1,992 yards and a 9/7 TD/INT ratio.

Connecticut (6-6) will play Marshall (9-3) in the St. Petersburg Bowl on December 26.

The Thundering Herd are 4.5-point favorites. To win this game, the Huskies are going to have to find a way to manufacture some semblance of an offense. They rank No. 116 in yards per play, No. 123 in yards per game and No. 117 in points per possession, ineptitude that the coaching staff mitigates as best they can by playing at an adjusted pace ranked No. 121. The Huskies' defense is decent but not as good as you'd expect of a unit that dragged an offense that bad to bowl eligibility, playing a bend-but-don't style that buckles down in the red zone. Without RB Devon Johnson, Marshall's ground attack has stagnated. Fortunately, frosh QB Chase Litton is the real deal. He'll have to contend with UConn CB Jamar Summers, who has intercepted seven balls in the last eight games.

UConn sophomore RB Arkeel Newsome rushed for 179 yards and two touchdowns on 25 carries in Friday's 31-13 win over East Carolina.

Holy breakout, Batman! Newsome had not recorded more than 85 yards rushing in any of his eight games prior to Friday's showdown with East Carolina. He smashed that mark and then some on Friday. Indeed, one of Newsome's carries went for 90 yards just by itself. The 5-foot-7, 182-pound sophomore averaged 7.2 YPC in Friday's victory. For the season, he's rushed for 591 yards and six touchdowns.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline believes Connecticut redshirt senior S Andrew Adams is a "legitimate late round choice that can help at the next level as a dime back/special teamer."

The 6-foot, 197-pound Adams posted just 3 tackles on the day versus Missouri, but Pauline notes that Adams was "was constantly around the action, making plays sideline to sideline in coverage and against the run." Last year the UConn prospect recorded 96 tackles and eight pass breakups, while leading the Huskies in interceptions with 4.

An NFL scout said UConn TE Sean McQuillan has "zero chance" of being drafted in Thursday's supplemental draft.

McQuillan expected to be a Huskies captain this fall, but he was charged with second-degree assault and disorderly conduct after a fight with a roommate in April and was forced to leave school. He is due in court on July 17. "McQuillan will catch what he's supposed to, but he's tight-legged and upright in his routes," NFL Media's Lance Zierlein wrote. "He has difficulty separating against quality athletes. McQuillan has a stocky, muscular build, but isn't enough of a bender as an in-line blocker to consistently make an impact in that area."

UConn graduate TE Sean McQuillan is available to be selected in the Supplemental Draft.

McQuillan was looking to transfer to another program for the 2015 season after his April arrest for an assault and disorderly conduct charge. He was scheduled to be a team captain and started 19 games over the last two seasons. We don't expect him to be selected.

Connecticut redshirt senior S Andrew Adams is "possibly the only draftable senior" on the Huskies' roster, according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Though a solid football player with instincts I wonder how he’ll test in the run-up to 2016," Pauline wrote. Adams started 12 games last year and led UConn with four interceptions. He chipped in 96 tackles and eight pass breakups. Adams is one of the few bright spots on a talent-deprived roster.

UConn graduate TE Sean McQuillan will transfer.

The move follows McQuillan's April arrest. He was charged with second-degree assault and disorderly conduct after a fight with a roommate. The tight end started 19 games over the past two years and was set to be a team captain in 2015. He's eligible to play immediately in 2015 wherever he lands, assuming a felony doesn't come out of the incident.

Rotoworld's Evan Silva notes that "every single player [drafted by Dallas] can be described as an above-average athlete for their size."

He gave the Cowboys a "B-" draft grade. "I think Dallas stole [Byron] Jones and [Randy] Gregory at their draft slots, before reaching a bit on Green. Wilson and Russell have starting potential down the road." Dallas shocked the draft community by passing on running backs in all seven rounds. "As to the big question mark, which was not selecting a running back, my sense is the Cowboys know there are many backs who will run effectively behind their offensive line, and you can add one on the cheap pretty easily," wrote ESPN's Mel Kiper, who graded the class "C+."
