Oklahoma State sophomore RB Justice Hill indicated that he hopes to be near full-health by the end of April.

Hill was sidelined for the entirety of spring practice while recovering from offseason shoulder surgery. He was interviewed during the Oklahoma State spring game on Saturday and expressed optimism in his recovery, saying, "I'm doing pretty good. I'm working every day getting back better." Barring a setback, the 5-foot-10, 171-pounder should be ready to roll at the start of August camp. This past season, he set the Cowboys' freshman rushing record with 1,142 yards on the ground. He also scored six touchdowns. The Oklahoma State offense could be a monster in 2017.

An NFC scout won't recommend Oklahoma State CB Ashton Lampkin to his team's coaches because of Lumpkin's aversion to contact.

"We want our cornerbacks to be physical in run support," the scout said. "Our defense demands it. He turns down chances to step up and stick people in support so there is no reason for me to even put his name in front of our coaches." NFL Media's Lance Zierlein pans Lampkin as an "average cornerback" without any standout traits. "Won't be physical enough against the run for some teams and will lack the size and deep speed for others," Zierlein wrote. The 6-foot, 189-pound Lampkin has a decent size/speed (4.52s forty) combo, one that he hopes gets his name called late on Day 3.

Clemson redshirt senior CB Adrian Baker transferred to Oklahoma State as a graduate.

Baker chose Oklahoma State over Houston and UCF. And boy are they happy he did, as the contending Pokes had serious concerns in the secondary. Baker is eligible to play immediately. The 6-foot, 180-pounder sat out last season while recovering from a torn ACL.

Cal senior T Aaron Cochran transferred to Oklahoma State as a graduate.

The Pokes beat out Auburn and Texas Tech for the services of Cal's former starting left tackle. The 6-foot-8, 350-pounder started 16 games over the past few seasons. Cochran is eligible to play immediately.

Transferring Clemson redshirt senior CB Adrian Baker is deciding between UCF, Houston and Oklahoma State.

Baker has visited all three schools in question. He told ESPN's Jake Trotter that he plans on settling on a final destination in March. The 6-foot, 180-pounder sat out Clemson's 2016 championship season while recovering from a torn ACL sustained during spring practice a year ago. His career with the Tigers, as a whole, was one of little impact -- Baker registered a total of 11 tackles while at Clemson. The former four-star recruit is expected to be healthy come the start of the 2017 season. He will be eligible to play immediately as a graduate transfer once he lands at his new program.

Pro Football Focus compared Oklahoma S Jordan Sterns to free agent S James Ihedigbo.

"Ihedigbo, like Sterns, has the size and physicality to be an effective player in the box, but struggles to tackle efficiently. Ihedigbo also has similar struggles changing directions, which hurts his ability to close and maintain in coverage," explains the PFF analysis team. The 5-foot-11, 198-pounder did not receive an invitation to the NFL Scouting Combine despite being named to the All-Big 12 first team following the 2016 season. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline views him as a likely undrafted free agent when all is said and done this month.

An East regional scout for an AFC team said that Oklahoma State DT Vincent Taylor's ceiling might be as part of an NFL practice squad.

""I think he'll be a back-end-of-the-roster type or a practice squad player. He has some ability, but I just don't think he's ever going to play with balance because he's too high-cut," the scout said. This past season, the 6-foot-3, 304-pounder logged 51 tackles (13.0 for loss), 7.5 sacks and a pair of forced fumbles. That fine work was enough to earn him All-Big 12 distinction.

Transferring Cal senior T Aaron Cochran has narrowed his list of potential destinations to Auburn, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech.

Cochran took an official visit to the Cowboys earlier this month. He’ll visit Auburn over the weekend, and then head to Lubbock in two weeks. As a graduate transfer, he's eligible to play immediately at another FBS school. The mammoth 6-foot-8, 350-pounder made 16 starts for the Golden Bears over the past three seasons.

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt writes that Oklahoma State TE Blake Jarwin "caught the ball very well in position drills" during his program's pro day on Thursday.

"He's a straight-line tight end who is projected to be drafted late on Day 3 or become a priority free agent," Brandt writes. Jarwin is just one of a number of highly-athletic tight ends in this loaded class. The 6-foot-5, 246-pounder put in runs of 4.76 and 4.69 seconds in the 40-yard dash on Thursday, plus a 34.5-inch vertical jump and a broad jump of 10-foot-1. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler sees upside in his "raw athletic traits."

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt relays that Oklahoma State RB Chris Carson "lo[oked] good in position drills, especially catching the ball" during the program's pro day on Thursday.

In addition to his strong work in drills, Carson improved on his 37-inch vertical jump at the Combine by two inches and furthermore notched a 4.29-second short shuttle run. While the 6-foot, 218-pounder was never an offensive force with the Cowboys -- he rushed for 449 yards and nine touchdowns on just 82 carries last season -- he has shown up for the testing phase of the draft process as he tries to convince the NFL he is worth a late pick.

Oklahoma State WR Jhajuan Seales ran the 40-yard dash between 4.37 seconds and 4.42 seconds at the program's pro day on Thursday.

Tip of the hat to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline for passing along these numbers. In addition to his sterling run through the 40-yard dash, Seales logged a massive 41.5-inch vertical jump and a strong broad jump of 10-foot-4. He also surprised by measuring taller than expected, checking into pro day festivities at 6-foot-1, 206 pounds. A likely undrafted free agent unless he can find some late Day 3 love, Seales caught 37 passes for 615 yards (16.6 yards per reception) and four touchdowns this past season.
Mar 10 - 12:23 PM

Oklahoma State RB Chris Carson logged a 40-yard dash of 4.58 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine on Friday.

Carson, who rushed for 449 yards and nine touchdown on 82 carries this past season, additionally registered a pair of impressive jumps. The 6-foot, 218-pounder's vertical went for 37 inches, while his broad jump went for 130 inches. He notched 22 reps on the bench press just for good measure. He should be viewed as a potential Day 3 prospect. His test results did nothing but help him.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein says Oklahoma State RB Chris Carson "is an immediate winner of the eyeball test, but that hasn't always been true of his running style."

"His shift from finesse to a more power-based running style fits his size and physical attributes and gives him a better shot of playing on Sundays," Zierlein wrote. "Carson is suited to a downhill attack that allows him to be the hammer rather than the nail, but he's unlikely to create for himself with elusiveness or speed. If Carson works out well, he could hear his name called on Day 3." In nine games last year, the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Carson earned honorable mention All-Big 12 notice by logging 559 yards and nine touchdowns on just 82 carries and catching 13 passes for 128 yards and a score.

The Tulsa World's Bill Heistan reports that former Notre Dame DC Brian VanGorder has been hired by Oklahoma State to serve in the role of defensive analyst.

Notre Dame has gone through a massive staff overhaul under HC Brian Kelly since the start of the 2016 season. While many of those coaching moves were made in the offseason, VanGorder wasn't so lucky. After the Irish limped out to a 1-3 start in which they coughed up 134 total points, VanGorder was canned. He finished out the campaign as a defensive analyst at Georgia. The fall from Notre Dame defensive coordinator to Oklahoma State defensive analyst is a pretty massive one, but Stillwater could serve as a nice landing spot in which VanGorder can recuperate from his traumatically truncated 2016.

Oklahoma State OT Victor Salako was not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.

The 6-foot-6, 335-pounder began his career at UAB before transferring when the Blazers discontinued football. Salako moved to Oklahoma State, where he was a two-year starter. Salako, a second-team All-Big 12 pick last year, auditioned for scouts at last month's East-West Shrine Game.
