Chiefs signed Harding WR Donatella Luckett.

Luckett (6'0/211) was a prolific wideout and return specialist in Division 2, scoring 22 all-purpose TDs in four years at Harding -- 15 at receiver, 5 as a ball carrier, and 2 on kick returns. He was a first-team All-Great American Conference pick as both a junior and senior. Luckett was exposed as a sub-par athlete at the Combine, where he ran 4.65 with a 34-inch vertical and 9-foot-10 broad jump. He did clock 4.40 at the Harding Pro Day. Already 24 years old, Luckett faces an uphill climb as an overaged prospect with pedestrian physical attributes even in the Chiefs pedestrian receiver corps.

Harding senior WR Donatella Luckett possesses "good size, speed and overall quickness," wrote NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

Luckett ran a 10.44 100-meter dash for the track team, and reportedly has a 4.45 forty. "Can mash the gas off the snap and destroy cushion on the Div. II level," Zierlein wrote. "Has the speed to punish defenses after catch." Luckett will be 24 on Draft Day. "Donatella dominates his current level of competition because of his height, weight and speed measurables," wrote Phil Savage, Executive Director of the Senior Bowl. "He is simply too strong and fast for these D-II defensive backs. He has a physical style when running the football and, as a blocker, he delivers some devastating, decleater-type shots when cracking the free safety. Although he is raw in his route techniques, he tracks the football well and can make the over-the-shoulder catch."

Harding senior WR Donatella Luckett accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Luckett will be 24 on Draft Day. "Donatella dominates his current level of competition because of his height, weight and speed measurables," wrote Phil Savage, Executive Director of the Senior Bowl. "He is simply too strong and fast for these D-II defensive backs. He has a physical style when running the football and, as a blocker, he delivers some devastating, decleater-type shots when cracking the free safety. Although he is raw in his route techniques, he tracks the football well and can make the over-the-shoulder catch." The 6-foot, 210-pounder's potential as an NFL wide receiver "is a worthwhile investment because he can be a useful member of the active roster while he learns the nuances of the position," wrote Savage, alluding to Luckett's ability to help on all special team units as a rookie.

Seahawks selected Harding DE Ty Powell with the No. 231 overall pick.

Powell (6-foot-2 1/8, 249) played defensive back early in his college career before moving into a full-time pass-rushing role. He notched 15 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks as a senior, also blocking four picks. Powell demonstrated terrific speed at the Combine with a 4.64 forty and 1.59 ten-yard split. He may have a future in the league as a nickel rusher and special teamer.

The Carolina Panthers worked out Harding DL Ty Powell.

Powell could be a good fit in the Panthers' 4-3 defense as a strong-side linebacker. He's versatile and could be used as a drop-back linebacker, as NFL.com's Gil Brandt suggests. It was reported last month by National Football Post's Russ Lande that Powell could be a third-round pick.

National Football Post's Russ Lande writes Harding DL Ty Powell could slip into the bottom of the third-round.

"...Powell’s workout reinforced his strong Combine workout and stellar play at Harding and has him in position to be a likely fourth round pick who could slip into the bottom of the third if the rumors I have been hearing from NFL personnel are correct," Lande writes. Powell could be a good fit as a strong-side linebacker in a 4-3 defense.

Indianapolis Colts LB Jeff Fitzgerald put Harding LB Ty Powell through his Pro Day workout.

Powell, a former safety and defensive end, projects best to strong side linebacker in a 4-3 or a pass rushing linebacker next to a three man front. The workout apparently lasted for an hour and Gil Brandt says that the Harding product "could be selected as high as the fourth round."

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl believes Harding's Ty Powell is a great fit at SLB or as a pass rusher in a 3-4.

Weidl makes sure to note that he is "very high on" the Harding product. Powell "has traits that translate to NFL level," tweeted Weidl. "Long, explosive and covers a lot of ground in a hurry."

SI's Tony Pauline said that area scouts that evaluated Harding senior Ty Powell "stamped" the DE/LB as a top-90 pick.

Pauline added that Powell received an East-West Shrine game invitation. We have not checked out the Harding product but he possesses desirable size for a pass rushing linebacker. Powell compiled 15 sacks, including 8.5 sacks, in 2012.
