Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline hears that Nevada G Austin Corbett could be off the board in the first dozen picks of the second round.

Corbett has been one of the highest risers of the offensive line class this spring, going from mid Day 3 selection to a player that will certainly be off the board on Day 2, it appears. Pauline mentions again that the Seahawks have shown big interest in the lineman, but without a second or third-round pick, they'd need to make some maneuvers to take him. We all know that the Seahawks have no issue doing that. Because of his versatility, it's easy to see Corbett going in the first 100 picks, and it sounds like there's a real chance that he goes in the top 50 now.

Nevada OL Austin Corbett recently went through a private workout with the San Francisco 49ers.

Corbett (6'4/306) is one of five offensive lineman pegged by the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows as a potential snug fit for the 49ers. Whether the Nevada tackle -- he'll likely kick inside to guard for the pro ranks -- stands as a real target for the team come the draft may well depend on whether they address their needs early on, with both Quenton Nelson and Isaiah Wynn potential targets. Corbett is more of a Day 3 prospect.

Nevada OL Austin Corbett will work out for the Tampa Bay Bucs, Tennessee Titans, Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys, according to Tony Pauline.

Corbett is likely viewed at a variety of positions, mostly center and guard, and could fill a utility role early on after being selected in the third or fourth round. That is an important player on NFL rosters, and Corbett could use it to develop into a starting role.

Three-star 2018 S Josiah Bradley signed with Nevada in December.

Bradley was one of the bigger gets for the Wolf Pack. The safety had offers from schools like Washington, Arizona State, California and Louisville, among others. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound defensive back was ranked the eighth best player coming out of the state of Arizona, and the 52nd best safety overall by 247 Sports.

Nevada hired UNLV CB coach David Lockwood to serve as safeties coach.

This past season was Lockwood's first with UNLV. Prior to joining the program, he had spent the previous three campaigns working as cornerbacks coach at Arizona.

Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman reports that Nevada will hire UCLA TE coach Angus McClure.

Feldman does not offer up what position group McClure will handle, but Football Scoop passed along earlier this week that if he left for Nevada, it would be as offensive line coach. With his taking leave of HC Chip Kelly's staff, the Bruins are down a familiar face. McClure had been with the program since 2007.

Football Scoop reports that UCLA TE coach Angus McClure is considered a "strong candidate" to potentially fill the role of offensive line coach at Nevada.

For the time being, McClure remains with the Bruins, as has been the case for a while. He initially joined the program in 2007. Beyond his coaching acumen, he's been a key factor in the recruiting game for UCLA over the years.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that Nevada OL Austin Corbett's versatility has "pushed him into the second day of the draft."

Corbett (6'4/310) schooled all comers at the Senior Bowl last week, be they tackles, centers or guards. Pauline forwards the Seattle Seahawks -- seemingly always needy for offensive linemen -- as a team that could show the Nevada stalwart some interest in April, depending on what they do in free agency. Generally speaking, team connections to players at this juncture of the evaluating process should be viewed as tentative at best.
Jan 31 - 1:29 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that the Seattle Seahawks were "very complimentary" of Nevada OL Austin Corbett following Tuesday's practice at the Senior Bowl.

"They mentioned his durability (Corbett played more than 600 snaps in college), versatility (he played three positions today) and ability to obliterate defenders," Pauline writes of the 6-foot-4, 310-pound Nevada standout. Offensive line has been a seemingly never-ending area of need for the Seahawks over the last few years, so their interest makes sense here. Corbett receives a Round 4 grade from Pauline. A strong evaluating process could potentially bump him to Day 2. Matters going smoothly at the Senior Bowl so far.

Nevada received a verbal commitment from three-star 2018 RB Toa Taua.

Taua (5'10/190) made his commitment during the Polynesian Bowl on Saturday. He strutted his stuff nicely in the contest, rushing for 41 yards -- tops in the contest -- and a pair of scores. While he's not a blink-and-you-miss him speedster, Taua is a bear to bring down in the open field and plays with a hard-charging downhill style. No dancing or hemming and hawing after taking the hand-off, here. While Taua currently projects as a running back for the collegiate level, he also has some upside as a safety or linebacker.

Nevada has hired Tommy Perry to be the 10th member of the coaching staff.

Perry will serve as the special teams coordinator. Prior to that, he was a senior special teams analyst. Before working for the Wolf Pack, he was at North Texas as both a running backs coach and special teams coordinator.
Jan 12 - 8:48 PM

Nevada redshirt sophomore RB Kelton Moore rushed for 109 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries in Saturday's 23-16 win over UNLV.

Most importantly, Moore's touchdown, with 7:34 left, was the game-winning score. The sophomore flashed some potential when given an opportunity this year. Sporadically used in the first five games, Moore (5'10/220) ended up exceeding 100-yards rushing in four of Nevada's last seven games. He'll compete for the starting running back job in camp next summer.

Nevada redshirt senior OL Austin Corbett accepted an invitation to play in the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Corbett (6'4/305) has been a mainstay on the Nevada offensive line, and has started every game for the Wolf Pack since his redshirt freshman season. He was second-team All-Mountain West last year as a junior, and was on the Outland Trophy watch list this summer. A strong showing at the Senior Bowl could boost his late Day Three stock and see him go in the middle rounds thanks to his size and durability.

Nevada junior QB Ty Gangi completed 33-of-54 passes for 414 yards with three touchdowns and an interception in a 42-23 loss to San Diego State on Saturday.

It's back-to-back three-score games for Gangi, who quietly has put together a solid season despite Nevada's 2-9 record. All three of his touchdowns came to unheralded wideout Brendan O'Leary Orange, but he spread the ball around to nine different Wolf Pack receivers. Gangi has played well enough that he should have a firm grasp on the quarterback job next season, and things should go better for the Wolf Pack, if only because they can't get much worse. They finish the year with UNLV.

Nevada sophomore Brendan O'Leary-Orange caught 11 passes for 214 yards and three touchdowns in a 42-23 loss to San Diego State on Saturday.

O'Leary-Orange (6'4/205) has become a bigger part of the offense for the Wolf Pack over the last month, but calling this the best game of the season is an understatement. He and Nevada quarterback Ty Gangi destroyed the Aztec secondary, and they connected on touchdown passes from 48, 9, and two-yards out, respectively. It's entirely possible with his size and speed that O'Leary-Orange could be a breakout star in 2018. Nevada closes out their season against UNLV.
