Despite weighing only 185 pounds, Northwestern sophomore RB Justin Jackson "runs hard and keeps his feet driving, allowing him to break tackles," according to Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

The analyst grades Jackson as the No. 24 runner in the nation. "A bright spot as a freshman for Northwestern in a tough 2014 season, Jackson now has a chance to emerge from the shadow of the numerous star running backs that dominated the Big Ten last year," Brown wrote. As a true freshman in 2014, Jackson earned Honorable Mention All-Big Ten accolades by running for 1,187 yards and 10 touchdowns (1,388 all-purpose yards). Most impressively, he did so while starting only starting only five games while stuck behind Venric Mark for half the year. Jackson was graded as the No. 4 all-purpose running back in the nation by 247Sports.com in 2014.

Broncos selected Northwestern QB Trevor Siemian with the No. 250 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Siemian (6'3/220) was a late riser, surprisingly garnering plenty of interest in the weeks before draft weekend. He tore his ACL in November and wasn't able to work out in the pre-draft process. During his time at Northwestern, Siemian passed for 5,931 career yards, 27 touchdowns and 24 interceptions. He'll compete for the No. 3 job with the Broncos behind backup Brock Osweiler.

Browns selected Northwestern S Ibraheim Campbell with the No. 115 overall in the 2015 NFL draft.

Campbell (5'11/208) made 45 college starts, finishing his career with 11 interceptions and six forced fumbles. He was selected second-team All-Big Ten as a senior by the conference's coaches. Campbell ran 4.54/4.56 at his Pro Day, adding a 33-inch vertical with 23 reps on the bench. A tone-setting box safety, Campbell could become an IDP factor if he develops into a starter, which is a distinct possibility based on his college profile. At worst, Campbell should contribute on special teams.

The Browns will meet with Northwestern QB Trevor Siemian on Monday and work him out on Tuesday, according to Aaron Wilson.

Siemian has surprisingly received interest from a number of teams, including the Broncos and Bears. The Northwestern QB tore his ACL during the final month of the season and missed the entire pre-draft process because of it. He is nothing more than a sixth or seventh round selection.
Apr 17 - 9:15 AM

Scouts and coaches representing the Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers, Oakland Raiders and Tennessee Titans all showed up for Northwestern QB Trevor Siemian's pro day, according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Siemian is still recovering from a torn ACL, which he tore back in November. However, Siemian was still able to throw 44 scripted passes in front of evaluators at his pro day. The Denver Broncos have shown the most interest, as Siemian had dinner with Broncos' quarterback coach Gregg Knapp. Earlier this month, the Broncos extended an invite to Denver for a pre-draft visit. Rang notes that, "the Titans also appear to have extra interest in Siemian," with the Chargers and Redskins also showing interest in the Northwestern QB.

Northwestern QB Trevor Siemian visited the Denver Broncos last week, according to Baltimore Suns' Aaron Wilson.

The Northwestern prospect also has dinner plans with Broncos quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp on Wednesday. Coach Knapp plans on attending Siemian's Pro Day, which is on April 9. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound Siemian tore his ACL back in November in a win against Purdue and was forced to miss the rest of the season. During his time at Northwestern, Siemian passed for 5,931 career yards, 27 touchdowns and 24 interceptions. Before tearing his ACL, Siemian passed for 2,214 yards and seven touchdowns, while rushing for five touchdowns.
Apr 7 - 3:40 PM

Northwestern S Ibraheim Campbell has worked out for the Buccaneers, Browns, Texans, according to Aaron Wilson.

The safety has workouts with the Bears and Eagles on the schedule. We are big fans of Campbell's game. He will most likely fill a pure strong safety role and is aggressive moving forward and attacking ball carriers.
Apr 2 - 11:26 AM

Northwestern QB Trevor Siemian will work out for the Bears on April 7, according to Ian Rapoport.

Siemian tore his ACL in November, so his name has not come up much during the process. Rapoport reports the quarterback will have dinner with Denver QB coach Greg Knapp the day before his pro day on April 9. He had a 7:11 TD top INT ratio in 2014.
Mar 31 - 2:24 PM

Northwestern WR Tony Jones (ankle) was unable to work out at the school's pro day, reported TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Jones sprained his ankle a few days before Northwestern's initial pro day, and he couldn't give it a go at their second event, either. "I've been informed he will take the field for scouts on April 9 along with quarterback Trevor Siemian and former Wildcat Venric Mark, who played for West Texas A&M last season," Pauline wrote. Jones has "excellent burst in his cuts and is at his best on crossing routes when he can catch in stride and be dangerous after the reception," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.
Mar 18 - 12:32 AM

Northwestern S Ibraheim Campbell (hamstring) clocked a 4.47 forty in front of scouts on Tuesday.

A left hamstring strain limited Campbell to only the bench at the combine (23 reps), and he was medically yanked from Northwestern's Tuesday pro day. The 5-foot-11 1/2, 208-pound Campbell added a 6.81 3-cone, a 4.03 short shuttle, a 33-inch vertical jump and a 9-10 broad jump. An NFL source told Tony Pauline that Campbell "looked very good in drills." The safety has four official visits scheduled, with more expected.
Mar 17 - 8:48 PM

Northwestern LB Chi Chi Ariguzo "was the star" of Tuesday's pro-day, wrote TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

"He weighed in at 228 pounds, ran fast (high 4.6-second range) and looked terrific in drills," Pauline noted. "A Northwestern coach gushed over Ariguzo's performance to me." The three-year starter has a motor that doesn't quit, and he is capable of making plays sideline-to-sideline. His testing times will be a huge help to his draft stock, because his athleticism has always been questioned.
Mar 4 - 8:49 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that Northwestern S Ibraheim Campbell (hamstring) is hoping to run for scouts on March 17.

Due to a left hamstring strain, Campbell was limited to only the bench at the Combine (23 reps), and he was medically yanked from Northwestern's Tuesday pro day. Hopefully Cambpbell's hamstring will heal up over the next few weeks. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound Campbell suffered through an injury-plagued 2014 season, but continuing a strong postseason (he did well at the Senior Bowl) should guarantee him a spot in the draft, particularly in an uninspiring safety class.
Mar 3 - 9:54 PM

Northwestern senior S Ibraheim Campbell was the biggest safety riser in Mel Kiper's recent positional rankings.

Campbell is now graded by Kiper as the class' No. 3 safety. Kiper isn't the only analyst who walked away from Mobile impressed by the Wildcat. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler recently wrote that Campbell "caught my eye" at the Senior Bowl and "showed good range and hand-eye coordination." The 5-foot-11, 205-pound Campbell suffered through an injury-plagued 2014 season, but continuing a strong early postseason showing should guarantee him a spot in the draft, particularly in an uninspiring safety class.
Feb 2 - 7:19 PM

Northwestern redshirt senior LB Chi Chi Ariguzo participated in Saturday's College Gridiron Showcase.

The three-year starter has a motor that doesn't quit, and he is capable of making plays sideline-to-sideline. Ariguzo "falls short in the area of computer numbers but on film he’s omnipresent," according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline. "Ariguzo will need a terrific pre-draft workout to push him into the late rounds but a number of teams feel he has the football skills to line up as an eight linebacker/special teams player on Sundays." The 6-foot-3, 235-pounder runs a 4.82 forty.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote that Northwestern senior S Ibraheim Campbell "caught my eye" at the Senior Bowl.

Campbell "showed good range and hand-eye coordination," according to the analyst. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound Campbell suffered through an injury-plagued 2014 season, though he's very clearly a candidate to be drafted. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote prior to the season that Campbell is "being overrated by many" and has "poor size/speed numbers and a one-dimensional game," opinions that probably haven't changed in light of the senior's most recent season. A good Senior Bowl week has helped him, however.
