Draft insider Tony Pauline reports that Kansas State OT Cornelius Lucas (foot) and S Ty Zimmerman (labrum) will work out for scouts on April 28th.

Zimmerman was recently named by NFL.com's Charles Davis as one of the draft's biggest sleepers at safety. The first-team All-Big 12 DB last season is the "quintessential coach's kid -- he's always in the right spot," according to the analyst, who likes his tackling and ballhawking ability. Lucas, meanwhile, is a massive 6-foot-8, 316-pound prospect. Both are projected as 7th-rounders or undrafted free agents.

Kansas State junior WR Tyler Lockett set a Wildcat record with 10 catches for 116 yards and tied the KSU bowl record with three touchdowns in Saturday's 31-14 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl victory over Michigan.

Kansas State (8-5) ended a five-game bowl losing streak with the easy victory over the Wolverines. "Nobody on the team won a bowl game," Lockett said. "It has been 11 years, (like) 4,018 games. We wanted to send the seniors out with a great win in a Kansas State uniform." All three of Lockett's touchdown receptions came in the first half, giving KSU a 21-6 lead at halftime. He finished the 2013 campaign with 81 catches for 1,262 yards and 11 TDs.

The Kansas City Star reports that Kansas State WRs Tramaine Thompson and Tyler Lockett will return for this weekend's game against West Virginia.

Thompson and Lockett are not only the Wildcats' best receivers, but they are also KSU's best kick returners. The duo both missed KSU's past two contests, competitive losses against Oklahoma State and Baylor. Thompson and Lockett's return is good news for star sophomore running back Daniel Sams, who won't have to contend with as many stacked fronts.

Kansas State coach Bill Snyder announced junior Jake Waters as his starting quarterback.

Waters led Iowa Western Community College (in the program's fourth year of existence) to a national junior college championship in 2012, throwing for 3,501 yards with a 39/3 TD/INT ratio. Waters is 49-2 as a starter since high school. Snyder added that sophomore Daniel Sams will also play in the Wildcats' season opener against North Dakota State on Friday.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler was pleasantly surprised by Kansas State senior RB John Hubert.

Brugler notes Hubert has a "smallish frame (5-7, 190) but light feet and change of direction. Runs tough but won't do much after contact." Obviously Collin Klein drew most of the national attention last season, but Hubert could make a name for himself has the focal point of the Wildcats' offense.

Texans signed Kansas State QB Collin Klein.

Klein was a run-first quarterback at K-State, throwing just 30 career touchdown passes. With an awkward, unnatural throwing motion and little velocity, Klein was asked to work out as a tight end at the Combine, but declined. He showed enough physicality in college that he could perhaps be tried at linebacker or safety, although Klein has 4.7-4.8 speed. The odds are against Klein having a long NFL career.

Seahawks selected Kansas State WR Chris Harper with the No. 123 overall pick.

It's another great value pick by GM John Schneider. Harper (6-foot 3/4, 229) was Collin Klein's go-to guy in 2012, catching 58 balls for 857 yards (14.8 YPR) and three touchdowns. The stats weren't sensational in K-State's mind-numbing run-first offense, but Harper is a highly physical receiver with big (9 3/4") strong hands and impressive tape, winning at the catch point with strength. Drawing some Anquan Boldin comparisons, Harper ran 4.55 at the Combine with a 35.5-inch vertical and 20 bench-press reps. Harper lacks true separation skills, but projects as a classic Z receiver. He'll play special teams as a rookie and fight for wideout snaps in a year or three.

Ravens selected Kansas State LB Arthur Brown with the No. 56 overall pick.

The Ravens stop Brown's slide. He was viewed by many as a first-round prospect. Brown (6-0, 241) earned 2012 Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year honors, tallying a team-best 100 tackles -- seven for loss -- and two interceptions in the middle of Kansas State's 4-3 defense. Brown ran forty times of 4.67 and 4.68 at his Pro Day and performed 21 reps on the bench. Based strictly on tape study, Rotoworld prospects guru Josh Norris considered Brown a top-10 overall player in this draft for his stack-and-shed ability, consistent physicality, and range in coverage. He should step in immediately as a starting inside linebacker in Baltimore.

Draft insider Tony Pauline writes that Kansas State's Arthur Brown and UConn's Sio Moore are the two fastest rising players at the LB position.

Finally. "Several people on the inside continue to tell me Brown is a definite first round pick, which like means Kevin Minter or Manti Te’o are likely out," Pauline writes. "I’m told teams love Moore not only for his measurables but also because he’s scheme diverse." Pauline went on to mention Moore could be a top 50 selection and the Jets are showing strong interest.

Kansas State LB Arthur Brown is visiting the Patriots on Tuesday.

It is an interesting visit, since the Patriots have invested early round picks in their linebacker group. However, their current starts do like coverage ability in the form of speed, and Brandon Spikes is on the final year of his rookie deal. Brown is an outstanding talent and can play inside or on the weakside.

Kansas State LB Arthur Brown visited the Jaguars on Wednesday.

We consider Brown a top 10 talent, but he will likely be selected within picks No. 20 to 40. The Kansas State product and Miami transfer has the athleticism to play on the weakside behind a four man front, but also the physical mentality to work inside. He is a viable option at No. 33 if available.

The Sideline View's Lance Zierlein believes the Bears aren;t a lock to take a LB in the first-round.

Kansas State's Arthur Brown has been commonly mocked to the Bears, along with Notre Dame's Manti Te'o and LSU's Kevin Minter. Zierlein feels the Bears' "nice feeler contract with D.J. Williams" means they will wait on finding a middle linebacker. Perhaps a second day pick on a weakside linebacker, like Missouri's Zaviar Gooden, is more likely.

Kansas State LB Arthur Brown has four visits scheduled this week, with the Bears, Rams, Jaguars and Bengals.

Brown could play inside or weakside linebacker for any of these teams. There were some questions about his health earlier in the process after missing the Senior Bowl, but Brown was no asked to medically rechecked at the NFL Combine. Our own Josh Norris considers him a top 10 talent.

The Chicago Tribune's Vaughn McClure reports Kansas State LB Arthur Brown will visit with the Chicago Bears.

Brown is considered a recent "riser" up draft boards, potentially landing in the first round. The Bears could be one of the teams that select the linebacker, as they hold the No. 20 overall selection. Brown was recently named a "top of the second-round" talent by NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah. He is six foot one and 236 pounds.

After watching one final tape on Kansas State's Arthur Brown, former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah considers the LB a top of the second-round talent.

"Sideline-to-sideline range, instinctive, productive," Jeremiah tweeted. "Inconsistent take-on player." Brown isn't of ideal size for an inside linebacker, but we think his aggression and strength to shed makes up for his "undersized" frame. He is an immediate starter.
