Harvard senior OG Nick Easton accepted an invitation to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

The 6-foot-3, 300-pound Easton was selected to the FCS North All-America first team and the All-New England team this season. He's also a two-time All-Ivy League pick. Some have measured him closer to 6-foot-2. Easton will no doubt have to erase questions of size and strength during postseason auditions with scouts.

Harvard senior edge rusher Zach Hodges "has impressive quickness for an Ivy Leaguer," wrote CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Hodges on Monday accepted an invite to the Senior Bowl. He "will have a chance to show he belongs in the same discussion as prospects from the SEC and Big Ten while in Mobile," wrote Brugler. The analyst is on record as saying he thinks Hodges could be a top 100 selection.

Harvard senior edge rusher Zack Hodges accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Hodges, we should note, now spells his name "Zack" instead of "Zach." A consensus preseason FCS All-American candidate, Hodges, a three-year starter, is an athletic and powerful edge rusher. Harvard HC Tim Murphy believes Hodges is a future 3-4 outside linebacker in the NFL, and Phil Savage, Executive Director of the Senior Bowl, agrees with him. "Zack is an intriguing developmental prospect as an NFL 3-4 OLB with potential starter ability (meaning within 3 years)," Savage wrote. "In the meantime, he can contribute as a 3rd down pass rusher and as a core special teamer. He has the size, overall quickness and playmaking talent to be effective in the pros, if he can master the run/pass keys required of an OLB. His overall playing instincts as an OLB projection would be the biggest question mark on him at this time."

Harvard senior edge rusher Zach Hodges has accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

It is quite an addition of Hodges sticks with this All Star game and does not get an early invite to the Senior Bowl. The athletic and powerful edge rusher has been productive from both three and two point stances. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler thinks Hodges could be a top 100 selection.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Harvard senior DE Zach Hodges "has made a strong case to be a top-100 pick next spring."

"While "The Game" between Harvard and Yale is one of sport's most historic rivalries, the annual match-up rarely includes players with hopes of playing in the NFL. But this year's game featured a few next level players, including Hodges who has made a strong case to be a top-100 pick next spring," Brugler wrote. The Harvard prospect was an FCS All-American last year and the 2013 Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year. While Harvard has only produced 20 NFL draft picks in school history, Brugler notes that Hodges "looks like No. 21."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that Harvard senior DE Zach Hodges is a "future NFL player."

"I didn't include this game in my preview, but Yale-Harvard also worth checking out, mainly because of DE/LB Zach Hodges. Future NFL player," Brugler tweeted. Brugler has also mentioned in the past that Hodges "is a potential top-100 pick." The Harvard prospect was an FCS All-American last year and the 2013 Ivy League Defensive Player of the Year.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes Harvard senior DE Zach Hodges will get invited to the Shrine Game then receive an invitation to the combine.

"Teams love players that can rush the passer and Hodges has made a living doing as much in the Ivy league," Pauline wrote. "Though a bit inconsistent this season Hodges has totaled 3.5 sacks and 4.5 tackles for loss in four games. He’s athletic, quick and easily moves about the field, rushing the passer or pursuing the action. Hodges, graded as a potential late round pick entering the season, comes with an upside but a quirky personality that may not sit well with some." CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote last month that Hodges is a potential top-100 pick. 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.

Harvard senior DE Zach Hodges is a potential top-100 prospect for the 2015 NFL Draft, according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

NFLDraftScout.com names him as the No. 2 senior outside linebacker prospect. "Hodges has an excellent first step with instant acceleration and nonstop momentum towards the ball, taking sharp angles with perceptive vision," Brugler wrote. "He plays with low pad level and natural leverage to power through the line of scrimmage while staying balanced through contact despite his lean-limbed frame, lacking ideal bulk." 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 tends to be overaggressive and needs to control his energy to consistently break down and not wear himself out," Brugler wrote. "But his motor is much more of a positive than a negative, using his relentless mentality and active playing style to only be blocked for so long."

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.
