Harvard senior DE Zach Hodges told NFLDraftScout.com he isn't worried about being overlooked during the draft process.

"The NFL looks for players wherever they can find them," Hodges said. "I've seen a ton of guys above me get the opportunity and take advantage of playing at the next level." Hodges, an FCS All-American last year and the 2013 Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year, has collected 92 tackles, 31 tackles for loss, 17.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and one interception over the past three seasons. "Hodges has excellent first step quickness with instant acceleration and nonstop momentum towards the ball that can only be blocked for so long," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler observed. "He stays balanced through contact and low to the ground, allowing him to generate power at the point of attack with natural leverage and active play style. Hodges needs to refine his pass rush moves and contain his aggressive nature to limit his wild angles, but it's easy to see why scouts have highlighted the Harvard hybrid pass rusher on watch lists."

Ravens selected Harvard FB Kyle Juszczyk with the No. 130 overall pick.

Juszczyk (6-foot-1 1/4, 248) played tight end and H-back for the Crimson, twice earning first-team All-American honors in the FCS. His Pro Day turned some heads with forty times of 4.71 and 4.72, a 37-inch vertical, and 10-foot-1 broad jump. Juszczyk is a good blocker and worked out at fullback before the draft, suggesting that's where NFL teams like him best. The Ravens will hope Juszczyk pans out better than Garrett Mills. If he shows well early, Vonta Leach and his $4.33M cap hit could be in trouble

Harvard FB/H-back Kyle Juszczyk has 12 official visits planned.

Some of these teams include Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, and Kansas City Chiefs. Juszczyk was used as a receiving tight end at Harvard, but moved to fullback at the Senior Bowl and showed a willingness to lead block. That receiving background only bodes well for his comfort in space. He could be drafted in the fourth- or fifth-round.

ESPN's Mel Kiper listed Harvard's Kyle Juszczyk as 2013's top FB.

"Juszczyk took over (Florida State's Lonnie) Pryor as the top guy available," Kiper writes. "He's been fantastic during the evaluation process." Juszczyk attended the Senior Bowl and looked at home as a lean blocker. He also possesses dependable receiving skills after being split out wide as a receiver while at Harvard.

Harvard FB/TE Kyle Juszczyk ran a 4.62 forty during his pro day workout on Thursday.

Juszczyk weighed in at 248lbs and registered a 37-inch vertical jump, 10 foot 1-inch broad, and completed 24 bench press reps. All are very solid for the draftable fullback/tight end/H-back prospect who showed receiving ability while in college and toughness as a lead blocker during the Senior Bowl.
