Missouri CB Aarion Penton was not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.

Penton's process will slow down considerably after he participated in both the Shrine Game and Senior Bowl. We like Penton's ball skills and coverage chops, but we aren't surprised he's being snubbed because he has a poor size/speed ratio. That said, Penton was one of the best corners in the SEC last year. He projects as an NFL slot corner.

Missouri DT Josh Augusta has intriguing size, writes NFL Media's Lance Zierlein, but he plays "too top-heavy and is unable to effectively own his space and fight off down blocks."

The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Augusta posted 12.5 TFL over the past two years combined. He can eat up blocks, but is rather limited outside of that. "Augusta needs to lose weight and try to improve his quickness which could bolster his run support potential," Zierlein wrote.

A priority for the Cowboys is to add a "war-daddy" pass rusher, according to beat writer Mac Engel.

The Cowboys are draft near the end of round one, but they might be the team to pull off a Julio Jones type trade in the hopes of landing that final piece to push the team forward. The Cowboys drafting has been very good over the last few years, but the team has missed a premiere edge threat who, 1. Can stay healthy, and 2. Is consistent. We like Charles Harris quite a bit as well.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline calls Missouri LB Donavin Newsom "one of the more underrated linebackers in the draft."

"He has size deficiencies but plays fast, makes plays in every direction of the field and is constantly around the action," Pauline wrote. He and his Draft Analyst cohorts grade the 6-foot-1, 235-pounder as a sixth-round prospect.

Missouri signed three-star 2017 QB Taylor Powell.

Powell took official visits to both Wake Forest and Missouri during the month of January, ultimately committing to the Tigers with just over a week remaining before National Signing Day. Scout.com notes that the 6-foot-2, 195-pound gunslinger "shows a lot of patience, poise and understanding of the game." The outlet would like to see him continue to improve on his pass velocities (he already has the touch portion of the equation well in hand). A freshman redshirt is well within the realm of possibility, here, particularly given that Missouri already has Drew Lock loaded as starter for the coming campaign.

Missouri received a verbal commitment from two-star S Tyree Gillespie.

While Gillespie garners just a pair of stars from Scout and Rivals, he received a three-star designation from ESPN. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder took January visits to both FAU and Tulane before he ultimately opted for Mizzou. He is a likely defender at the collegiate level, but also has potential as an offensive player if HC Barry Odom opts to experiment in the future.

Missouri CB Aarion Penton has been added to the Senior Bowl.

Penton just finished with the East-West Shrine week and will take the short flight over to Mobile, Alabama. Penton has ball skills and is not afraid to play in close coverage, but due to his height he likely projects in the slot for many teams.

ESPN's Todd McShay ranks Missouri edge rusher Charles Harris as the No. 15 overall prospect in the draft.

"A twitchy athlete off the edge, Harris is just scratching the surface as a pass-rusher. If he adds some bulk to his frame, watch out," McShay wrote. Harris' name kind of gets lost in the shuffle among edge rushers in the 2017 class, but a first round pick is definitely in play.

At least one NFL scout views Missouri edge rusher Charles Harris as a first round prospect.

"He’s long, got get-off, athletic," the scout told Packers beat writer Bob McGinn. Harris received a second-round grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board last year before returning to school for one more year. He is not always mentioned among the top defenders in college football, but the NFL certainly notices Harris' ability.

Missouri HC Barry Odom said that junior WR Nate Brown (ankle) has progressed to running routes.

Brown initially injured his ankle in August camp and subsequently missed the entirety of the 2016 campaign after undergoing surgery. As Missouri wrapped the season with a 4-8 record, the 6-foot-3, 205-pounder won't have to worry about healing up for a bowl contest. Odom indicated that Brown should be healthy for spring practice.

Missouri DE Charles Harris received a second-round grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Committee a year ago before opting to return to school.

Harris declared for the Draft earlier this week, presumably with his heart set on being taken in the first round. The fourth-year junior wasn't the same player early on this fall in the Tigers' new defensive scheme -- causing Harris to speculate how his draft stock could be affected -- but he came on late. Harris had nine sacks this season, with 5.5 of them coming in November.

Missouri redshirt sophomore WR Keyon Dilosa was dismissed.

Dilosa's Wednesday morning arrest involving an alleged incident in which the receiver punched a woman in the face initially resulted in an indefinite suspension, but Missouri is now taking a much harder line on the matter via an outright dismissal. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound redshirt sophomore finishes off his Missouri career having caught 13 passes for 93 yards.

Missouri redshirt junior DE Charles Harris declared for the 2017 NFL Draft.

In a statement, HC Barry Odom said, "I wish we could have another year with Charles leading our program, but there's no question in my mind that he's ready for the next level." Not everybody is as certain as his coach. In early November NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter cautioned that the 6-foot-3, 255-pounder hasn't proven "he has the quickness and bend to reach the quarterback consistently against college tackles," the obvious insinuation being that he is not NFL-ready in that aspect of his game. This past season, Harris has registered 61 tackles (12.0 for loss), nine sacks and a pair of forced fumbles. He is coming off a 2015 campaign in which he recorded a whopping 18.5 tackles for loss.

Missouri redshirt sophomore WR Keyon Dilosa was suspended indefinitely while his domestic assault case is pending.

Dilosa was arrested early Wednesday morning outside a Columbia bar after a witness alleged that Dilosa hit a 20-year-old woman in the face. "We are aware of the situation and addressing it internally," Moller said in an email release Wednesday. "He is suspended indefinitely while we work to learn more." Dilosa finished the season with only two catches for seven yards after posting 11 catches for 86 yards last year.

Missouri redshirt junior WR J'Mon Moore caught six passes for 135 yards in Friday's 28-24 win over Arkansas.

Moore finishes out his 2016 season on an absolute roll. In his last three games -- all with at least 130 yards receiving -- the 6-foot-3, 205-pound redshirt junior has hauled in 23 passes for 407 yards and two touchdowns. Alas, there won't be a chance for an encore, as Missouri will not be bowling, as even with Saturday's comeback win they managed just a 4-8 record in 2016.
