Rotoworld's Josh Norris ranks FAU CB Cre'von LeBlanc as the No. 8 prospect who participated in the Shrine Game.

"Leblanc was competitive in all areas, especially the catch point, which is necessary for a 5’10" corner with 28.5" arms," Norris wrote. The analyst spoke with an NFL Director of College Scouting who praised LeBlanc's skill. LeBlanc boasts versatility in coverage and is a solid run defender. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline grades LeBlanc as a sixth-rounder.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris ranks Florida Atlantic DT Trevon Coley as the No. 3 prospect who attended the East-West Shrine Game.

"[Javon] Hargrave’s obvious emergence clouded what was a great week for Coley," Norris wrote. "He might not be as explosive and disruptive as Hargrave, but he moves and wins in similar ways. Coley and Hargrave moved differently than the other defensive linemen at the event." The 6-foot-2, 300-pound Coley was a First-Team All C-USA pick in his last year on campus. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline currently gives him a UDFA grade.

Florida Atlantic CB Sharrod Neasman accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Neasman turned his best collegiate season during the 2015 campaign, recording 74 tackles, three interceptions and four passes defended. Those numbers are a nice uptick from the 59 tackles and a pair of picks he logged in 2014. The 6-foot, 198-pound corner was named the Owls' 2015 Student-Athlete of the Year following the close of the season.

Florida Atlantic senior DT Trevon Coley accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-2, 300-pounder was named to the First-Team All C-USA recently. He anchored a line that set the program’s all-time single-season sack record with 35.

FAU senior CB Cre'von LeBlanc accepted an invite to the East-West Shrine Game.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound LeBlanc has a lithe frame, but he's actually pretty good in run support, forcing runners to go laterally and chasing them to the sidelines. LeBlanc is also sticky and instinctive in coverage. NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter thinks he could get into the third round.

FAU senior CB Cre'von LeBlanc "gets the most out of his ability and has a legitimate shot to win a NFL job in training camp," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes.

"He has an excellent understanding of field leverage, which he showed in several ways against Florida, protecting against inside routes and forcing the receivers to stay outside. And also in run support, stringing runs outside and forcing the ball-carrier to the sideline," Brugler wrote. The 5-foot-11, 175-pound LeBlanc gets knocked for his size and ideal length, but showcases versatility in coverage and is a solid run defender.

Florida Atlantic junior LB Robert Relf will miss the remainder of the 2015 season due to a shoulder injury.

Relf injured his right shoulder in the first half of last week's overtime loss to Tulsa. He didn't play in the second half of that game and HC Charlie Partridge said on Wednesday that the 6-foot-3, 230-pound junior will take a medical redshirt for the remainder of the season. The shoulder was apparently bothering Relf throughout August camp. Last season, he started 11 games while recording 65 tackles.

Regarding FAU senior CB Cre'von LeBlanc, NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter believes "the Owls [could] find one of their corners picked in the third round for the second straight year."

Of course, D'Joun Smith was picked in the third round by Indianapolis this year. "Though a bit shorter than Smith (5-10, 195), LeBlanc brings physicality in coverage and is a sure tackler; in fact, former FAU head coach Carl Pelini said LeBlanc was recruited specifically for his versatility as a cover man/run stopper/blitzer," Reuter wrote. The 5-foot-11, 175-pound LeBlanc had two picks last year.

Wake Forest redshirt junior QB Tyler Cameron will transfer to FAU.

Cameron graduated this spring and will have two seasons of immediate eligibility remaining with the Owls. Jaquez Johnson has started for multiple seasons, so Cameron will likely compete for the backup job.

FAU junior QB Greg Hankerson is transferring from FAU and will likely choose an FCS program as his next destination.

Hankerson played in eight games each of the last two seasons as the school's top backup. However, he only saw a good number of snaps in two of those contests during the 2014 season, completing 17 of 37 attempts for 122 yards.

Falcons signed Florida Atlantic S Damien Parms.

Parms (6'1/201) played special teams and strong safety for the Owls, piling up 11.5 career TFLs, three forced fumbles, and an interception as a full-time starter for two seasons. He ran 4.59/4.61 at the FAU Pro Day with a 36-inch vertical and 10-foot-4 broad jump. Parms is too stiff-hipped to man center field in the pros, but fills aggressively in the box and could push for snaps as a tone setter down the line. He'll open his career covering kickoffs and punts.

Colts selected Florida Atlantic CB D'Joun Smith with the No. 65 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Smith (5'10/187) was a four-year contributor and three-year starter, piling up nine career INTs, 29 pass breakups, and three forced fumbles. He ran 4.45 in Indy with a 36-inch vertical and 10-foot-4 broad jump. A quick-twitch defender with kickoff return value, Smith is a feisty competitor, willing tackler, and has playmaking ability as a route jumper. He has a chance to develop into a quality No. 2 and/or slot corner in the NFL.

FAU CB D'Joun Smith "is a bit of a sleeper," says ESPN NFL Insider Jon Gruden.

"When it is time to crack and replace, Smith replaces," Gruden said. "He will knock your running back down. He had seven interceptions two years ago. He does not have the ideal size, but neither does Waynes, and he's being mentioned as a possible top-10 pick. Smith looks like he enjoys tackling; I like that in my corners. I just know he is going to be one of the complete corners in this year's draft." Gruden isn't the only one high on Smith. An AFC scout told CBS earlier this year that he was impressed by the 5-foot-11, 190-pound Smith's ability to recover after making mistakes. NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein believes Smith could start in a Cover 2 scheme and compares him to Ross Cockrell.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein believes FAU CB D'Joun Smith fits best in a Cover 2 scheme and "has starting talent."

"Smith possesses above-average ball skills and instincts, but questions about his ability to keep up with vertical speed could push his draft stock down a little bit," Zierlein wrote. The analyst ranks Smith as the No. 10 overall cornerback. Commented a NFC director of pro personnel: "The word that comes to mind when I watch him on tape is 'spunky'. He competes hard and he wants to make plays, but his workout is going to be big for him because I'm not sure he has the top-end speed." Zierlein compares Smith to Ross Cockrell. An AFC scout told CBS earlier this year that he was impressed by the 5-foot-11, 190-pound Smith's ability to recover after making mistakes.

FAU senior CB D'Joun Smith "could wind up among the first five senior cornerbacks selected," wrote CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"While lacking ideal size at 5-foot-10 1/8 and 189 pounds, Smith didn't lack in the physicality department, twice knocking down South receivers with solid hits and demonstrating light feet, a smooth turning motion and quick acceleration to lock down his side of the field," Rang wrote from the Senior Bowl practice field. An AFC scout told CBS earlier this year that he was impressed by Smith's ability to recover after making mistakes. "He gets physical downfield and locates well with the ballskills to make plays," observed Rang's colleague Dane Brugler recently.
