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.

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.

CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler believes that Oklahoma State TE Blake Jarwin's "raw athletic traits are draftable."

Unfortunately, Jarwin won't be able to display his athletic prowess at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis later this month, as he did not receive an invitation to the annual scouting event. Brugler counts the 6-foot-5, 248-pounder's non-invite as one of the more notable snubs. Because he was not used heavily as an offensive contributor during his time with the Cowboys -- for his career, he holds a 41-616-5 receiving line -- strong testing results would greatly help his draft stock. He figures to take part in Oklahoma State's Pro Day later this spring as he tries to open a few NFL eyes.

CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler was surprised that Oklahoma State RB Chris Carson was invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.

As Brugler notes, Carson wasn't Oklahoma State's leading rusher this past season. He wasn't even their second-leading rusher. No, the 6-foot-2, 200-pounder's 82 carries in 2016 were good for third-most on the team. He turned those totes of the rock into 559 yards rushing (6.8 YPC) and nine touchdowns. While that YPC number is shiny enough, in a larger sample size of 131 carries in 2015, Carson managed just 3.9 yards on an average rush. It's unlikely that he hears his name called at the Draft.

Oklahoma State S Jordan Sterns was not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.

Sterns led the Cowboys with 101 tackles last year. He chipped in three interceptions and five pass breakups in earning a first-team All-Big 12 nod. Sterns competed in the Reese's Senior Bowl last month. The 6-foot, 205-pounder excels in the box, but must work on his coverage assignments.

Oklahoma State hired Southern Miss WR coach/special teams coordinator John Wozniak to serve as RB coach.

Wozniak got his start in coaching as a graduate assistant with the Cowboys in 2004. Since then, he has found work on the sidelines of Georgia Southern, LSU, Memphis and Alabama (among others). In a statement, Wozniak said, "Being around Coach Gundy in 2004, I had a lot of respect for him as a football mind, and more importantly, as a man. I knew that if I ever had a chance to work with him again, that I definitely wanted to do that."

Oklahoma State hired Arizona State OL coach/run-game coordinator Josh Henson to serve as OL coach.

The Sun Devils hardly knew him. Arizona State had just hired Henson away from Oklahoma State in mid-January. That marriage lasted under a month, as Henson is now set to return to Stillwater to coach up the Cowboys' offensive line. This past season, he served as an analyst for HC Mike Gundy. Henson has extensive coaching experience beyond the offensive line -- he worked as Mizzou's offensive coordinator from 2009-2015.

Oklahoma State graduate T Matthew Mucha has left the team.

Mucha played sparingly after taking a redshirt as a freshman in 2014. He will not be transferring, but rather hanging up his cleats for good. With both the 6-foot-5, 300-pound Mucha and G Jesse Robinson doing likewise, Oklahoma State's depth along the offensive line thins by degrees. Neither of these departures should be considered truly damaging.

Oklahoma State graduate G Jesse Robinson left the team.

Robinson will be foregoing his remaining collegiate eligibility, meaning that his football career is now done. The 6-foot-5, 313-pounder started nine games during his time at Oklahoma State and appeared in 10 games this past season.

Rivals recruiting analyst Rob Cassidy is intrigued by Oklahoma State freshman WR LC Greenwood's potential in the Cowboys' offense.

Along with incoming freshman wideouts Cedarian Lamb and Charleston Rambo, who sided with conference rival Oklahoma, Cassidy sees the Cowboys' Greenwood as a potential standout wide receiver in the Big 12 for the coming years. Cassidy is keen on the 6-foot-3, 203-pounder's length. His outlet ranks Greenwood as the No. 56 overall receiver in this class, but there is potential here beyond that number.
