Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman named Purdue senior RB Raheem Mostert to his "All-Freak Team," and called him "the fastest man in the Big Ten" and "a legit kickoff return threat."

The Boilermaker prospect has been reported to be the fastest football player in the NCAA. The 5-foot-11, 186 pound Mostert, took gold in the 60-meter (6.63) and 200-meter (20.73) at the 2014 Big Ten Indoor Track & Field Championships.

Purdue senior RB Raheem Mostert is ranked by NFL.com as the fastest football player in the NCAA.

If the Boilermakers figure out a way to get the ball in the senior's hands in space this fall, watch out. Mostert qualified for the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in the 100 meters, 200 meters and 4x100-meter relay earlier this year. Purdue hasn't gotten him involved in the offense over the past three years, but we've seen flashes of Mostert's speed as a standout returner.

Bucs selected Purdue OL Kevin Pamphile with the No. 149 overall pick in the 2014 draft.

Pamphile (6-foot-4 5/8, 310) is a former defensive lineman that switched over and manned the left tackle spot for the Boilermakers for the last two seasons. He began generating buzz after his Pro Day, running a 4.92 and posting a 32-inch vertical leap. A favorite sleeper of our Josh Norris, Pamphile has the talent to compete for the right guard job in Tampa. There's upside to be mined here as he continues to learn the position.

Falcons selected Purdue CB Ricardo Allen with the No. 147 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Allen (5-foot-9 1/8, 187) got by on technique and playmaking ability in the Big 10, but was often pushed around by stronger receivers and is speed deficient with a 4.61 forty time. Still, Allen was a ballhawk (13 career interceptions, school record four pick-sixes) and has a feisty, aggressive playing style that could eventually earn him slot corner duties. He's simply too small and slow to line up outside.

Purdue T Kevin Pamphile has six team visits on his schedule, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

The Patriots, Dolphins, Cardinals, Bucs, Saints and Giants are the six teams. This draft is shallow on third day offensive linemen who can be seen as developmental types, so Pamphile could emerge as a favorite.

Purdue DT Bruce Gaston recorded 34 bench press reps at Purdue's Pro Day.

Per NFL.com's Gil Brandt, Gaston also recorded forty times of 4.95 and 5.0 seconds. The likely undrafted free agent also registered a 9 foot 1 inch broad, a short shuttle of 4.59 seconds, and 3-cone in 7.45 seconds.

Purdue junior CB Ricardo Allen accepted an invitation to play in the Shrine Game.

Allen was recently named All-Big Ten Second Team. The 5-foot-9 corner has a spindly frame and can be pushed around by bigger receivers. In addition, Allen doesn't possess high-end speed or top-notch strength. What he does possess is good technique and ball skills, quick feet, an aggressive style that borders on fearless and supreme confidence. Allen's name will be called on the draft's third day and he could carve out an NFL career as a nickel back.

Purdue senior DT Bruce Gaston has accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine game.

Gaston generated some buzz over the last few seasons, starting the majority of games in that four season span. He registered seven tackles for loss, including three sacks, this season.

Two freshman Purdue WRs, B.J. Knauf and Jordon Woods, were arrested on Monday for suspicion of theft.

Knauf and Woods allegedly stole two tie bars, valued at $20 each. Head coach Darrell Hazell is aware of the incident but will let the legal process play out before taking action. Knauf has caught nine passes for 95 yards.

Purdue has named senior Rob Henry their starting QB.

Henry competed with freshmen Danny Etling and Austin Appleby for the job. The senior saw action in 11 games last season, completing 21 of 38 passes for 216 yards and three touchdowns, adding 74 rushing yards and touchdown. He had seen the majority of first-team reps during offseason activities.

Senior DT Brandon Taylor has left Purdue due to academics.

Taylor started seven games in 2011 and two in 2010, playing in 10 last season. The Boilermakers lost Kawann Short to graduation last April, so Taylor could have been in line for more playing time this year.

NFL.com's Bucky Brooks named Purdue senior DT Bruce Gaston as an under the radar prospect.

"Gaston will carry on the tradition as an agile nose tackle with a relentless motor and untapped potential," Brooks writes. "At 6-foot-2, 305 pounds, Gaston has shown flashes of defeating blockers with speed and quickness, but is at his best when using his combination of size and strength to create penetration at the point of attack." The Purdue interior lineman recently tallied 5.5 tackles for loss and Brooks notes he could emerge as a second day pick.

No eligible prospects were chosen during Thursday's Supplemental Draft.

This was expected. Our own Josh Norris considers Purdue receiver O.J. Ross the top prospect from the group, but Houston receiver DeWayne Peace could draw some looks as well. All six eligible prospects could get a look in NFL camps, including: UNLV defensive end James Boyd, UNLV defensive tackle Nate Holloway, UCF defensive end Toby Jackson, and South Alabama corner Damond Smith.

ESPN's Ed Werder has been told by one NFL GM that it is unlikely Thursday's Supplemental Draft will produce a pick.

Six eligible prospects have been ruled eligible for the draft, including: UNLV defensive end James Boyd, UNLV defensive tackle Nate Holloway, Central Florida defensive end Toby Jackson, Houston receiver DeWayne Peace, Purdue receiver O.J. Ross, and South Alabama cornerback Damond Smith. Ross and Peace seemingly have the best chance, but interested teams likely believe they can court these talents to sign for training camp.
