The 6-foot-2, 310-pounder also ran a 5.07 40 this spring. Last year, Huff led the team's defensive linemen with 38 tackles. He added two sacks, six TFL, one forced fumble and one blocked extra point.

Indiana redshirt junior WR Simmie Cobbs was arrested during a concert on misdemeanor charges for refusal to identify and resisting law enforcement.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline tabs Indiana senior WR Simmie Cobbs as a "large, game-controlling receiver who flashes big-play ability."

The 6-foot-4, 212-pounder caught 60 passes for 1,035 yards and four touchdowns in 2015, but unfortunately Cobbs missed all but one game last year after suffering an ankle injury in September. "If he gets his game back on track and improves off his sophomore campaign, Cobbs could leave the 2017 season stamped as a second-day prospect," Pauline wrote.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes Indiana redshirt senior CB Rashard Fant is a "good bet" to go near the end of Day 2 next spring.

"He’s a nice combination of ball skills, toughness and speed," Pauline wrote. "Fant does not back down to a challenge and constantly makes positive plays against the pass. He displays good instincts on the field and has a knack for getting a hand in to knock the ball away or make the interception." Fant has been clocked at 4.37 in the forty, which would have ranked No. 4 among CBs at this year's combine, beating first-rounders Adoree' Jackson and Marlon Humphrey. If there's an issue, it's Fant's size. Maybe his work ethic, too. "I doubt he hits 5-foot-10 during predraft weigh-ins, and while he makes a lot of plays in the Big Ten, he’s going to be overmatched in the NFL," Pauline wrote. "A few IU coaches wonder if Fant is willing to put in the work necessary to take his game to the next level." In the final analysis, though, Pauline thinks Fant will be "a good nickel back" at the next level.

ESPN's Tom VanHaaren notes that either of Indiana senior WR Simmie Cobbs or junior WR Nick Westbrook could surpass 1,000 yards receiving in 2017.

Westbrook came up just short from that mark last season, catching 54 passes for 995 yards and six touchdowns. As for Cobbs, the 6-foot-4, 212-pounder already has one 1,000-yard season under his belt, with that coming in 2015. A season-ending ankle injury suffered last September essentially cost him the entirety of the most recent campaign. VanHaaren offers one note of caution with the Hoosiers offense, writing, "There are some questions as to what the production will look like without former head coach Kevin Wilson as Mike DeBord takes over as offensive coordinator."

CBS Sports' Chris Trapasso ranks Indiana senior LB Tegray Scales as the No. 81 NFL prospect in the country.

Scales is a prototypical new-age, twitched-up, undersized linebacker. The 6-foot, 235-pounder posted an amazing 126 tackles, a national-best 23.5 TFL and seven sacks en route to second-team All-America recognition from SI.com. "Scales plays with amazing urgency and has the twitchiness and speed to back up that aggressive nature," Trapasso wrote. Indiana's 4-2-5 scheme allows Scales to freelance sideline-to-sideline.

Indiana redshirt senior CB Rashard Fant has been clocked at 4.37s in the 40-yard dash.

That time would have ranked No. 4 among CBs at this year's NFL Scouting Combine, beating first-rounders Adoree' Jackson and Marlon Humphrey. The 5-foot-10, 177-pound Fant is the NCAA's active career leader in pass breakups with 44. He posted 17 last season en route to Second Team all-Big Ten honors.

Indiana freshman DT LeShaun Minor is a "promising freshman at a position of need," according to Bleacher Report's David Kenyon.

The Hoosiers return Nate Hoff and not much else in the way of experience at defensive tackle. Per Scout, Minor is an "Active, disruptive player who gives top effort." The site's scouting report continues: "Solid athlete who can re-direct and chase down plays. Productive and makes a lot of plays. Not a big big guy for being an interior prospect right now, so must continue to add the weight and strength necessary to play inside at the next level."

Over the spring, Indiana named senior TE Ian Thomas the Most Improved Player on offense and awarded him a Fly Wheel Award for his contributions on special teams.

The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder is coming off a nice spring that included a 23-yard touchdown catch during the spring game. Indiana ignored the tight end position in last year's offense, but new OC Mike DeBord utilized multiple tight ends in the receiving game at Tennessee in 2016. Thomas is a breakout candidate.

Chargers selected Indiana OG Dan Feeney with the No. 71 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Feeney (6’4/305) made 42 starts on the Hoosiers’ line – the first 37 at right guard and final five at right tackle – and earned first-team All-Big Ten in each of his final two seasons as well as first-team All-America as a senior. Feeney was charged with just two sacks allowed in his college career. A finesse lineman, Feeney specialized in pass protection and zone blocking at Indiana and isn’t a power player. He also missed four games to a severe concussion in 2016. Feeney’s lack of mauling strength caps his ceiling, but he projects as a competent starter in the Andy Levitre mold. Chargers GM Tom Telesco is drilling the offensive line on day two, as he should after Philip Rivers got happy feet down the stretch last season.

An NFL scout who spoke with the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel called Indiana G Dan Feeney "the old-school, run-blocking guard who needs to work on his pass pro[tection]."

"On the ground a little bit (too much) for my liking. He’s a center-guard combination guy," the scout said. To his second point, the 6-foot-4, 305-pound Feeney worked out at both guard and center during his pro day. Another scout who spoke with the Journal-Sentinel believes that center is his best bet for professional success, telling the outlet, "Maybe in a pure zone scheme like Atlanta and San Fran’s running he’d have a chance to be pretty good. He’s a great kid and he’s tough, but if he gets in the wrong scheme he’s going to fail." The Vikings, Bears, Colts, 49ers and Rams are among those who have kicked the tires here during the pre-Draft process.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that Indiana G Dan Feeney is visiting the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams this week.

Feeney previously visited the Minnesota Vikings, Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts. We're fans of Feeney, and believe he'll start immediately in the NFL. He's worked as both a guard and center during the pre-Draft process. If there's a concern, it's that Feeney has reportedly suffered multiple concussions. Even so, Pauline predicts that Feeney will go in the top half of Round 2 if he doesn't slip into Round 1.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compared Indiana RB Devine Redding to Seattle Seahawks RB Alex Collins.

Zierlein writes that Redding is a "[g]arden variety zone-scheme runner who has the decisiveness and vision to operate in that offense, but lacks the explosiveness, size and play strength to make a living as an NFL starter." This past season, the 5-foot-8, 205-pounder rushed for 1,122 yards, his second consecutive campaign of at least 1,000 yards on the ground. While Zierlein is none too high on Redding's potential as a starter, he does see him as being able to compete for more of a complimentary backup role. A late Day 3 selection is the best that the Indiana standout can realistically hope for come the draft.

Indiana WR Ricky Jones will attend the Colts' local prospect day.

At his pro day workout, the 5-foot-10, 190-pound Jones ran the 40-yard dash in 4.41s, benched 18 reps, recorded a vertical leap of 31.5 inches, leapt 9-foot-7 inches in the broad jump, posted a 6.5s three-cone and an 11.17s 60-yard shuttle. Jones recorded 53 receptions for 848 yards and three touchdowns last year. He knows he'll need to make the NFL as a special-teamer, initially. "Being on special teams, I know [former coach Kevin] Wilson made that a big emphasis," Jones said. "I wanted to play special teams to give me an advantage, because I knew I wasn’t a 6-5, 4.2-speed type of guy." Indiana head coach Tom Allen lauded his work on that unit: "He was able to be excellent on special teams. I think that, as a receiver, sometimes guys in college just want to focus on being a great receiver and they don’t understand what the 53-man roster really looks like. We broke it down and used him as an example as far as his effort and execution as a specialist for us and

Indiana G Dan Feeney visited the Vikings on Tuesday, according to beat writer Darren Wolfson.

Feeney has the talent to immediately start for the team that drafts him and worked at both guard and center at Indiana's pro day. Feeney reportedly has a history of concussions. He will likely land in the second round.
