Harvard senior S Sean Ahern was named to the Lott Impact Trophy preseason watch list.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder from Cincinnati is a two-time All-Ivy league defensive back. A team captain and defensive star, Ahern even chipped in two blocked kicks as a junior in 2015.

Baltimore had the league's seventh-best UDFA haul, in the estimation of NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

"Ozzie Newsome grabbed a couple of draftable interior linemen in Harvard's Anthony Fabiano and Duke's Matt Skura," Reuter wrote. "One of those players should make the roster. Offensive tackle Stephane Nembot is a worthwhile investment, as is pass rusher Victor Ochi. Both guys might need a year to develop, but the talent is there." Most believe that Baltimore also had one of the NFL's three-best Draft classes (including Rotoworld's Evan Silva). The Ravens are in far better shape today than they were even 10 days ago.

Bears signed Harvard TE Ben Braunecker.

Braunecker (6'3/250) was named first-team FCS All America after exploding as a senior, parlaying 48 receptions into 850 yards (17.7 YPR) and eight TDs. Braunecker helped himself in Indy, running 4.73 with an impressive 10-foot-1 broad jump and 35 1/2-inch vertical. Nicknamed "Bronk" by Rotoviz's Jon Moore, Braunecker graduated from Harvard with degrees in molecular and cellular biology. Braunecker will need to polish his blocking to become more than a role player, but he certainly checks boxes as an athlete and receiver.

Ravens signed Harvard OL Anthony Fabiano.

Fabiano (6'4/303) was a four-year starter for the Crimson, seeing action all over the line and earning first-team All-Ivy League in 2015. His stock elevated at Harvard's Pro Day, running 5.04 with a 32 1/2-inch vertical and 25 bench-press reps. Fabiano battled turf toe as a senior and eventually required surgery. Seen as an interior-only prospect in the scouting community, Fabiano is worth a shot due to his athleticism and versatility.
May 1 - 12:37 PM

Cardinals selected Harvard OT Cole Toner with the No. 170 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Toner (6'5/306) was a two-year starter for Harvard, earning first-team FCS All-America as a senior and first-team All-Ivy League in each of his final two seasons. Moderately athletic with the arm length of a guard (33 1/8"), Toner is making a big jump in competition with very average traits and lacking the drive-blocking ability of a pro right tackle. Toner will need to show multi-position versatility to carve out an NFL career.
Apr 30 - 3:31 PM

CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang believes that Harvard TE Ben Braunecker "could join former Crimson quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick as a rare skill-position standout from the Ivy League capable of making the NFL jump."

Rang's a fan of Braunecker's quickness off the snap and his competitive nature in blocking. He is also a fan of the 6-foot-3, 250-pounder pass-catching prowess. Last season, Braunecker caught 48 passes for 850 yards and eight touchdowns in 10 games. NFL Media's Lance Zierlein has compared him to Ryan Hewitt.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein believes that Harvard T Cole Toner "might have to battle to earn a roster spot."

"Projecting Toner as an NFL prospect isn't easy. His tape at Harvard is pretty solid," Zierlein noted, "but the level of competition is nowhere near what he will see as a pro and the more tape you ingest and the more you begin to project, the more his average feet, strength and hip flexion become a concern." The 6-foot-7, 300-pounder was a three-year starter for the Crimson at right tackle, earning All-Ivy League first-team honors each of the past two seasons. Zierlein sees RT as his only viable position in the NFL. While Toner offers a tough, grinding approach to the game, he might not have the athletic goods to stick for long.

Harvard TE Ben Braunecker clocked 4.65-4.72 second forty times at his pro day last week.

Per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Braunecker posted a 37.5 inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-1 broad jump. Watching Braunecker and his Crimson draft-eligible teammates were representatives from 26 teams, including OL coaches from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots. Of more interest to Braunecker, the Indianapolis Colts TE coach was also in attendance. Recently, Braunecker was likened to Ryan Hewitt by NFL Media's Lance Zierlein.
Mar 15 - 8:17 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline calls Harvard OL Anthony Fabiano "underrated" and "a late-round pick who can play any of the three interior offensive line positions."

"Fabiano caught my eye as a sophomore at Harvard when he played left tackle before being pushed inside to guard," Pauline wrote. "His senior film is underwhelming, but Fabiano was playing through injury as he struggled mightily with turf toe, which required surgery to permanently fix." Less than two months after ditching a walking boot for his surgically repaired foot, Fabiano "looked terrific" at his pro day, per Pauline. Measuring in at 6-foot-3, 303 pounds, he completed 25 reps on the bench and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.94. Fabiano added a 4.34 short shuttle, a 7.41 3-cone, a vertical jump of 32.5 inches and a broad jump of 9-foot-7. "Fabiano looked solid in position drills," Pauline wrote.

Harvard TE Ben Braunecker was likened to Ryan Hewitt by NFL Media's Lance Zierlein.

Braunecker, who participated in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, was a first team All-Ivy League selection who caught 48 passes for 850 yards and eight touchdowns last year. Much of that production, argued Zierlein, came from the fact that Braunecker was too big for the players assigned to covering him. The analyst doesn't love his speed or size but thinks he could stick as a move tight end with some receiving chops. Braunecker is also a willing, but perhaps not great, blocker.

Mar 1 - 3:34 PM

NFL Network's Rand Getlin notes that Harvard OL Anthony Fabiano is hoping to run the 40-yard dash under five seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine.

In addition to Fabiano's hope to bust five seconds in the 40, he's also looking for a vertical leap of around 35 inches. He's currently recovering from surgery to repair a broken foot suffered seven games into the 2015 campaign. He also broke his hand in August. The 6-foot-5, 290-pounder's played at both guard and tackle with the Crimson (earning All-Ivy League honorable mention for his work at right guard in 2014). He's a likely guard prospect for the next level, assuming he can keep his bones intact.
Feb 9 - 10:45 PM

Harvard senior TE Ben Braunecker has accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Braunecker was named to the AP FCS All-America first team after the season. The 6-foot-4, 240-pound senior earned the honor (and his bowl invite) on the strength of a 2015 campaign in which he caught 48 passes for 850 yards and eight touchdowns in 10 games. He averaged a cool 17.7 yards per reception. He's been hauling in the long ones on a consistent basis throughout his career, averaging 17.2 in his time with the Crimson. Should he slip through the draft cracks, he'll probably be fine. A degree from Harvard in molecular and cellular biology is nothing to sneeze at.
Jan 4 - 9:41 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes Harvard senior OL Anthony Fabiano should get a Shrine Game invite.

The analyst has been given no official word that that's coming, but don't be surprised if Fabiano is there (as an aside, linemate Cole Toner is ticketed for the Senior Bowl). Fabiano was an All-Ivy League honorable mention at right guard lat year. The 6-foot-5, 290-pounder has started inside and outside for the Crimson, but probably projects best to the NFL as a guard.
Wed, Nov 18, 2015 10:03:00 PM

Harvard senior T Cole Toner will play in the Senior Bowl.

The 6-foot-7, 300-pound Toner is considered the Ivy League’s top NFL prospect. An All-Ivy League first teamer in 2014, Toner "shows the toughness and footwork to win as a run blocker and pass protector," per NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline reports that the Senior Bowl staff was at Harvard to scout senior T Cole Toner.

The 6-foot-7, 300-pound Toner has been a three-year starter at right tackle on the Crimson's offensive line. Last season, the Harvard prospect earned all All-Ivy League first team honors.
