Date:

Louisville senior DE Devonte Fields will go to trial for a misdemeanor assault charge on June 17.

Fields' representatives failed to reach an agreement to dismiss his charge -- he allegedly hit an ex-girlfriend -- so he will now stand trial for it. The defensive end spent last year at Trinity Valley Community College after he was dismissed from TCU. He intends to enroll at Louisville in July.

Louisville redshirt sophomore S Josh Harvey-Clemons "runs well and really lays the wood," notes NFL Media.

Harvey-Clemons, a once highly touted prospect, transferred to Louisville after he was dismissed at Georgia. "His size enables him to play a hybrid linebacker position in the nickel, should Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Grantham (who also was Harvey-Clemons' coordinator at Georgia) go that route," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Bryan Fischer. "Harvey-Clemons already is an important part of Auburn lore: He is the Georgia player who tipped the ball that Ricardo Louis caught for a TD in the 'Prayer at Jordan-Hare' in 2013." Harvey-Clemons should emerge on draft radars this fall.

Louisville senior DE Devonte Fields is expected to start, reports NFL Media.

"Fields (6-4, 250) won't arrive at Louisville until next month, and the hope is he becomes the pass-rush force he was at TCU," writes College Football 24/7 writer Mike Huguenin. "Louisville's top two edge rushers from last season are gone -- both were drafted -- and Fields is expected to start." NFL Media ranks Fields as the No. 2 impactful transfer in the country with some trepidation. "Fields easily could be the biggest success story on this list; he also easily could be the biggest bust," noted Huguenin.

Louisville redshirt sophomore CB Shaq Wiggins earned a starting job in spring practices.

Wiggins (5-foot-10, 171) started eight games at Georgia as a true freshman in 2013. He transferred a year ago after running into some problems on campus. NFL Media ranks him as the No. 10 most impactful transfer. "While he lacks bulk, he has good speed and ball skills, and also possesses the talent to contend for All-ACC honors," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Mike Huguenin.

Louisville senior DE Devonte Fields could emerge with a re-breakthrough campaign in 2015.

Fields was the Big 12's defensive player of the year and a Round 1-caliber prospect back in 2012 as a freshman at TCU. Everything has cratered since then. Injuries limited him to three games as a sophomore and he was dismissed prior to his junior year. Fields played at a JUCO last year and returns to big-time college football this fall with a school known for giving second chances. " It will be interesting to see if he can regain his previous form and show off his potential for a new FBS team," noted NFL Media.

Raiders signed Louisville RB Michael Dyer.

Dyer (5'9/218) entered college as a five-star recruit and emerged as a starter for national-champion Auburn as a true freshman. His career spiraled oddly and wildly from there, bouncing around several colleges before finally landing at Louisville, where Dyer managed a 110-481-5 rushing line as a senior, splitting carries with Brandon Radcliff and Dominique Brown. Dyer had a pedestrian Combine, running 4.58 with a 34-inch vertical and 10-foot broad jump. Turning 25 in October, Dyer is an overaged, mercurial prospect who looked ordinary in 2014. His commitment to and passion for the game are obvious question marks.

Bucs signed Louisville RB Dominique Brown.

Brown (6'2/234) finished his Louisville career with 1,736 yards and 16 TDs on 399 carries (4.35 YPC), adding 47 receptions. He was frequently injured in college and slipped down the depth chart as a senior. Brown turned some heads with a solid East-West Shrine performance, but ran 4.63/4.65 at his Pro Day with a brutal 9-foot-1 broad jump. As Brown will turn 24 late in his rookie year, we suspect his NFL career will be brief.

Rotoworld's Evan Silva "was very surprised Miami didn't place a higher priority on its suspect secondary" and gave the Dolphins' draft class a "C+" grade.

"I'm not quite as high on [DeVante] Parker as many are, and would've preferred Miami address its glaring cornerback need at No. 14 with either Kevin Johnson or Marcus Peters," Silva wrote. "I do believe Parker will be a good player, but envision him more as a rich man's Brandon LaFell than A.J. Green." ESPN's Mel Kiper pegged the class with a "B" grade. "DeVante Parker has the chance to be special and fills a clear need for them," Kiper wrote. The analyst liked late Day 3 picks of Jay Ajayi and Tony Lippett.

Cardinals selected Louisville TE Gerald Christian with the No. 256 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Christian (6'3/244) spent two seasons at Louisville after transferring from Florida, amassing 64 career catches for 882 yards (13.8 YPR) and ten TDs. He managed a 4.87 forty at the Combine and is tight in the hips, limiting his route-running ability. Christian does have soft, big (10 3/4") hands and can make contested catches. As is typically the case with young tight ends, Christian needs work as a blocker, but flashes toughness to become proficient in that aspect. He likely has the ceiling of a No. 2 tight end in the pros.

Steelers selected Louisville S Gerod Holliman with the No. 239 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Holliman (6'0/218) went from lightly used backup in 2012-2013 to Thorpe Award winner as a true junior last year, an award presented to the nation's top defensive back. He piled up an NCAA-high 14 interceptions. Although Holliman was utilized most often in coverage at UL, he showed a noticeable tendency on tape to shy from contact in the run game. He also demonstrated poor athleticism at the Cardinals' Pro Day, running 4.62 with a lineman-like 27-inch vertical and 9-foot-1 broad jump. Holliman was a playmaking ballhawk in college, but his transition could be rough. We'd be surprised if he grew into an NFL regular.

Vikings selected Louisville DE B.J. Dubose with the No. 193 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Dubose (6'4/284) made 19 starts for Louisville, totaling eight sacks and 18.5 tackles for loss. He was an honorable mention All-ACC pick as a senior. Long armed (33") and active but short on athleticism, Dubose ran 5.06 at the Combine, also hoisting 26 bench-press reps. Not explosive enough to create pass-rushing havoc, Dubose projects as a run-stopping, two-down end who will have to leave the field in passing situations.
May 2 - 4:25 PM

Browns selected Louisville CB Charles Gaines with the No. 189 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Gaines (5'10/180) converted from wideout to corner between his freshman and sophomore years, immediately becoming a starter and intercepting seven passes in two seasons before turning pro as a redshirt junior. He clocked 4.44 with a 34 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-3 broad jump at the Combine. Although Gaines was an excellent man-cover corner in college, his slim body type is a concern and he is a matador in run defense. Gaines' lack of physicality hurts his chances of playing in the slot, and his lean frame makes him a suspect fit outside. He could have a hard time carving out a roster spot in a crowded Browns secondary.

Titans selected Louisville OLB Deiontrez Mount with the No. 177 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

A top 100 prospect in Josh Norris' eyes. Mount (6'5/249) was a rotational end-backer for most of his college career, tallying 10.5 TFLs and five sacks when he finally became a full-time player as a senior. He ran 4.66 at the UL Pro Day, but managed a 9-foot-11 broad jump and 31-inch vertical. Despite being that sub-package player, Mount used his length and hands to extend and shed as a pass rusher and run defender.
May 2 - 3:49 PM

Jaguars selected Louisville S James Sample with the No. 104 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Sample (6'2/209) transferred from the University of Washington to a California JUCO before landing at UL, where he became the leading tackler as a senior and intercepted four passes. Although overshadowed by Gerod Holliman in the same secondary, Sample is the superior pro prospect as a quick-twitch mover and tough tackler with plus athleticism, running 4.56 at the Combine with a 10-foot-3 broad jump. Sample best projects as a half-field safety who won't necessarily focus on center field or the box. He should be able to perform both tasks adequately.
May 2 - 12:26 PM

Jets selected Louisville OLB Lorenzo Mauldin with the No. 82 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Many projected an outside linebacker for the Jets in round one, but fans were forced to wait until the third round. Mauldin (6'4/259) was a highly productive defensive end for the Cardinals, piling up 34 career tackles for loss, 21.5 sacks, and five forced fumbles as a 31-game starter. His athletic limitations showed up in Indy, where Mauldin ran 4.85 with a 32-inch vertical and 9-foot-4 broad jump. A high-character overachiever, Mauldin lacks explosive edge-rush tools but plays to the whistle and defends the run. He has a chance to become a lower-end NFL starter.
