Louisville senior WR Devante Parker is the No. 10 overall prospect on Dane Brugler's board.

"An impressive size/speed/athleticism specimen, Parker missed most of the 2014 season with a foot injury, but he has all the makings of being a No. 1 at the next level," Brugler wrote. Parker reminds NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah of Chargers' WR Keenan Allen. Parker, who caught 43 balls for 855 yards and five touchdowns in only six games this past year, boasts a 4.39 forty, a 10-foot, 10-inch broad jump, an 80-inch wingspan, and a ridiculous catch radius.

Former TCU DE Devonte Fields announced his transfer to Louisville.

It was recently reported Fields was visiting the Cardinals after playing at Trinity Valley Community College. He received some negative attention for his effort last season, and Fields even admitted to having a difficult time motivating himself. Fields posted an outstanding freshman season at TCU, but he has fallen short both on and off the field since. Louisville has turned into transfer-U.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Louisville S Gerod Holliman is "highly inconsistent vs. the run, struggling to square up his target and finish."

"Holliman is highly inconsistent vs. the run, struggling to square up his target and finish. His lean-muscled build limits his growth potential to bulk up and get stronger, but he can improve his technique and will need to if he hopes to start in the NFL," Brugler wrote. It's been said, that Holliman dealt with a shoulder injury in the past, as he definitely favors one side when attempting tackles. The Louisville prospect led all of college football with 14 interceptions last year. Brugler adds that Holliman "certainly has ballhawk tendencies with the instincts to read and break on the ball with excellent timing, quickness and finishing ability."

Louisville announced defensive coordinator Todd Grantham will remain at the school.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported earlier in the day Wednesday that the Raiders offered Grantham a two-year deal to become Jack Del Rio's new DC. "My family loves it in Louisville, and I think we are establishing something special here with Bobby Petrino and our staff," said Grantham. Grantham is one year into a four-year pact that pays him nearly $1 million annually. The Cardinals ranked sixth nationally in total defense in 2014.

The Raiders offered Louisville defensive coordinator Todd Grantham a two-year deal to become their DC, reports NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Though obviously interested in the post -- Grantham did interview for it -- he's not a slam dunk to accept just yet. "Louisville sources have cautioned me for days that he might not take it," reported FootballScoop, a respected source of coaching news. "We’ll see how it plays out." The 48-year-old Grantham has been a top-notch college DC at Georgia and Louisville since 2010, and he coached extensively in the NFL before that.

Louisville defensive coordinator Todd Grantham is interviewing for the same post with the Raiders, reports ESPN's Adam Caplan.

"Others also being considered for it as well," Caplan wrote, though NBC Washington's Dianna Marie Russini is reporting Grantham is the favorite for the job. Grantham would be an astute hire for new HC Jack Del Rio. He coordinated the Browns' defense from 2005-07 and also coached for the Cowboys (2008-2009), Texans (2002-2004) and Colts (1999-2001). The 48-year-old Grantham has been a top-notch college DC at both Georgia and Louisville since 2010.

Former TCU DE Devonte Fields is visiting Louisville today and the Cardinals are in the lead to land the transfer, according to Max Olson.

Fields played a number of games for Trinity Valley Community College this year, but his effort was spotty according to eye witness reporter accounts via Sports Illustrated. Fields, in fact, said it was difficult to stay motivated. The edge rusher's freshman season was outstanding at TCU, but he has since dealt with injuries and off-field transgressions. Louisville loves to give second chances.

NFL Media's Mike Mayock said Louisville senior OG John Miller's "upside for me is as a starting guard in the NFL."

"He plays with great base and power in the run game," Mayock said during the game's broadcast. The four-year starter is a mauling hammer-on-nail type. NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah projects Miller as a Rds. 3-4 pick. Miller ranked as our No. 3 prospect at the Shrine Game, though we wouldn't be surprised if he's tabbed higher than any other player in the game.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote that Louisville senior OG John Miller "simply blasted defenders off the line throughout much of the [Shrine Game]."

"Miller has the relative low center of gravity and thick base that scouts look for in interior lineman and has long enough arms (33")," Rang wrote. "In pass protection, he showed balance and reasonably light feet to mirror, as well as strong hands to latch and control. He also demonstrated the core flexibility and power to anchor against the bull rush." Rotoworld's Josh Norris ranked Miller as the event's No. 3 prospect. "My offensive darkhorse for first E-W Shrine attendee selected this spring," Norris wrote. "I really, really like Miller’s game. First, he is powerful on initial contact to stop his opponents’ momentum. Add on an athletic lower half and experience playing both on the left and right side, and I don’t see why Miller won’t contribute as a rookie."

Louisville senior RB Dominique Brown ran for a game-leading 70 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in Saturday's East-West Shrine game.

We don't consider Brown one of the game's top 25 prospects, but he did provide one of the contest's only consistent sources of offenses. He also chipped in its only touchdown, plunging in from one yard out in the waning seconds of the fourth quarter. The 6-foot-2, 216-pound Brown (4.62 forty) is a plodder, and he lost carries to Michael Dyer and Brandon Radcliff in 2014.

Louisville senior DE/OLB Deiontrez Mount "passes the eye test with a tall, athletic build, but he doesn't have that natural position for the next level," observes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Nonetheless, he did well when asked to drop, covering a lot of ground with his light feet and lower body flexibility," Brugler wrote. "Mount also showed burst off the edge during pass rush drills. His best fit in the NFL might be weakside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme." The 6-foot-5, 243-pounder, formerly an undersized 4-3, became a big pass rushing OLB when Louisville shifted to a 3-4 scheme in 2015.

NFL Media analyst Charles Davis observed that Louisville senior T Jamon Brown "really stood out during practice this week" East-West Shrine Game practices.

"With a big, thick, strong body, Brown has really stood out during practice this week," Davis wrote. "The former Cardinal has played both tackle positions and guard, but I think he will fit best as a guard in the NFL." Either Brown made a big turnaround mid-week, or Davis and TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline don't see eye-to-eye on his performance. Pauline tweeted on Tuesday that Brown "look[ed] awful" at Shrine practices.

Louisville redshirt senior DE B.J. Dubose "brings a lot of energy off the edge, but also showed his discipline during seven-on-seven drills, holding backside contain and sniffing out misdirection plays," notes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"He has a lean body type for the position, but plays fast and controlled in space," the analyst added. The 6-foot-5, 263-pounder has the frame to add more weight, and he simply must do so if he hopes to stick around in the pros. Dubose, who is currently at the East-West Shrine Game, finished amongst Louisville's leaders in tackles for loss and sacks this year.

Louisville senior RB Dominique Brown "has the potential to develop into a hybrid H-back role," wrote CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

The analyst has been taking in Brown's work at East-West Shrine game practices. "Brown had a disappointing senior season with Michael Dyer and Brandon Radcliff stealing carries as part of a heavy committee at Louisville in 2014," Brugler wrote. "However, Brown has flashed his athletic potential this week and with his size (6-2, 240), he has the potential to develop into a hybrid H-back role. During Wednesday's practice, he impressed during pass protection drills and as a receiver out of the backfield, creating separation and looking the ball into his hands." Brown ran for only 378 yards on 3.9 YPC during the aforementioned lackluster campaign.

Louisville senior OG John Miller "flashed explosive lower body traits and point of attack power to be a people mover in the ground game" at Shrine Game practices, wrote CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"He has also taken well to coaching, improving in several areas throughout the week," Brugler wrote. "On Monday, coaches scolded him for not rolling his hips prior to contact during drills, but he showed much better hip snap prior to engaging with his target on Wednesday. Miller, who played both left and right guard in college, might be the highest rated offensive lineman in this game." Miller currently totes a mid-round grade. An AFC scout told NFL.com earlier this week that he "really [likes]" Miller's power.
