TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline says he was "very impressed" with Indiana junior OT Jason Spriggs on game film.

He didn't explicate why, so we'll have to wait on his analysis until Pauline breaks down Big 10 prospects. Interestingly, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler also wrote last week that Spriggs caught his eye on tape. The 6-foot-6, 297-pound Spriggs captured the left tackle gig as a true freshman and has made 24 straight starts. "He has adequate set up quickness off the snap with smooth body control and natural movements in space," Brugler wrote. "Spriggs' base strength and technique need refined as he tends to pop upright off the snap with a soft punch, but he has the temperament for the trenches and fights through the whistle."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Indiana redshirt junior LB David Cooper projects as a priority free agent.

Cooper has started all 24 games the past two years after transferring to Indiana from Coffeyville Community College. "Cooper is smart and uses his eyes well to track the ball, but he will be fooled by misdirection and fakes, struggling to recover," Brugler wrote. "He is more of a one-speed athlete with stiff hips and pedestrian redirection skills and although he doesn't show explosive movements, Cooper floats well in coverage and has the strength to finish tackles." He was one of Indiana's top defenders last year with 85 tackles, 6.0 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler thinks Indiana senior CB Tim Bennett has the potential to be Indiana's first drafted defensive back since Tracy Porter in 2008.

The former JUCO transfer led the FBS with 21 passes defended. "He lacks ideal size and speed for the NFL level, but with another productive season in 2014, Bennett could be the first Indiana defensive back drafted since Tracy Porter in 2008," Brugler wrote. The 5-foot-9, 186-pound Bennett runs a 4.52 forty.

Indiana senior WR Shane Wynn lacks size, but "his speed as a ballcarrier and return man make him dangerous," writes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

If Wynn can earn a spot at the next level as a return man, NFL coaches could eventually turn him into an interesting slot weapon. He stands a diminutive 5-foot-6 and 167 pounds, but blazes an impressive 4.38 forty. Wynn, who logged 46 catches for 633 yards and a team-high 11 touchdowns last year, will assume top-receiver duties in 2014 with Cody Latimer and Kofi Hughes off to the NFL.

Indiana junior OT Jason Spriggs is a "work-in-progress" who caught CBS Sports' Dane Brugler's eye on tape.

The Hoosiers brought Spriggs in as a tight end recruit, but quickly shifted the big-bodied prospect to offensive tackle, a position he's taken to swimmingly. "He has adequate set up quickness off the snap with smooth body control and natural movements in space," Brugler wrote. "Spriggs' base strength and technique need refined as he tends to pop upright off the snap with a soft punch, but he has the temperament for the trenches and fights through the whistle. He is still a work-in-progress, but caught my eye on tape as a player who could potentially develop into a draftable prospect with two full seasons remaining of college eligibility." The 6-foot-6, 297-pounder captured the left tackle gig as a true freshman and has made 24 straight starts.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman "needs to stay healthy moving forward to show scouts he has NFL durability."

"Coleman has good vision to read blocks and find holes and is at his best in the open field when he can get his momentum going. He doesn't display dynamic explosion in his cuts, but picks up steam as he goes with a second gear to finish runs downfield," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-1, 205 pound Coleman led Indiana in rushing last year with 958 yards playing in nine games, while averaging a whopping 7.3 yards per carry. Unfortunately for Coleman, he missed the last three games of the season due to an ankle injury. The Hoosiers big play threat still managed to end up with 1,275 all-purpose yards on the season.

Freshman LB Nile Sykes will not play for Notre Dame in 2014, according to Dan Murphy.

Sykes is looking for a new school to call home, and Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman suggests Indiana. The linebacker was a three-star recruit, according to Rivals, and is from the state of Illinois.

Former Indiana senior QB Tre Roberson announced on Twitter that he will transfer to Illinois State.

Illinois State has not yet confirmed the news nor added Roberson to the roster. Although Roberson is a true senior, most take it as a given that he'll be awarded a medical redshirt to recoup one season, giving him two more years of eligibility. After getting nudged out of primary QB duties by Nate Sudfeld, Roberson decided to leave Bloomington. Roberson threw for 2,433 yards, 20 touchdowns and 11 interceptions over the past three years.
Jun 15 - 12:01 AM

Indiana junior QB Nate Sudfeld is expected to start with news that Tre Roberson is transferring.

The duo split time last year, and also divvied up reps during spring practices. No starter was named at that time, but it's possible Roberson was given a heads-up that the coaching staff intended to go with Sudfeld in 2014. Sudfeld led the squad with 2,523 passing yards and 21 touchdowns with nine interceptions last year.

Indiana redshirt junior QB Tre Roberson will transfer.

Roberson split quarterback duties with Nate Sudfeld last year. "I want to thank the coaching staff, my teammates and Indiana University for all of their support over the last three years," Roberson said in a statement. "My time in Bloomington will always hold a special place in my heart. I wish everyone at IU all the best as I move on to the next chapter in my life." Roberson started games in each of the past three seasons. Because he suffered a season-ending broken leg in 2012 (medical hardship), Roberson retains two years of eligibility.

Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman was one of the best 100-meter sprinters and long-jumpers in Illinois as a high schooler.

The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Coleman is a prospect to keep an eye on. He averaged 7.3 yards per carry last season, finishing tied for second nationally with five rushes of at least 50 yards. Out of his 12 rushing TDs, three covered at least 64 yards and six went at least 40 yards. Without Cody Latimer, the Hoosiers figure to rely on Coleman's playmaking ability a bit more in 2014.

Redskins selected Indiana TE Ted Bolser with the No. 217 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Bolser (6-foot-5 1/2, 257) graduated as IU's all-time leader in receptions (117), yards (1,337) and touchdowns (15) by a tight end. He'll turn 24 midway through his rookie year. Bolser repped 225 pounds 19 times at the Hoosiers' Pro Day, adding a 31-inch vertical and 4.75 forty. A poor blocker and lumbering route runner, Bolser was a solid college tight end who will struggle to make an NFL impact.
May 10 - 5:37 PM

Broncos selected Indiana WR Cody Latimer with the No. 56 overall pick in the 2014 draft.

Another toy for Peyton Manning. Latimer (6-foot-2 5/8, 215) made 24 starts in three seasons with the Hoosiers, ringing up 135 grabs for 2,042 yards (15.1 YPR) and 17 touchdowns, also shining as a tackler on IU's special teams units. Latimer broke his foot at February's Combine, but rebounded to run in the 4.39-4.44 range at Indiana's Pro Day, adding a 39-inch vertical. A West Coast-style possession receiver with velcro hands and a plus catch radius (32 5/8-inch arms), Latimer is only 21 with room to grow into a quality No. 2 wideout. He dropped just one pass among 119 senior-year targets. Latimer has physical tools to beat man coverage and is a noticeably competitive player on film. He'll start off as the No. 4 receiver, but will be one injury away from some serious re-draft fantasy appeal.
May 9 - 8:58 PM

Indiana WR Cody Latimer tells NFL.com's Chase Goodbread that the Philadelphia Eagles, Carolina Panthers and Baltimore Ravens have shown the most pre-draft interest in him.

The Hoosiers prospect has generated the right amount of buzz leading to the draft, so much so, The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder went from a third-round projection to a first. With Latimer's combination of size, speed and play making ability, teams have jumped on the band wagon. Latimer has nearly worked out for every team, and is one of the thirty prospects invited to New York City for the first-round of the draft.
