At least 22 teams were represented at former Stony Brook T Michael Bamiro's workout on Thursday, according to Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo.

Bamiro was recently ruled ineligible for the 2013 college football season and bypassed both the NFL Draft in April and today's Supplemental Draft. There has been some buzz about the large tackle carrying a third day grade by some evaluators, so expect to see Bamiro get a camp look and potentially make a roster.

NFL.com's Gil Brandt considered former Stony Brook T Michael Bamiro a fourth-round talent.

Bamiro was recently deemed ineligible for the 2013 season and therefore bypassed April's NFL Draft and this Thursday's Supplemental Draft. The offensive lineman has a basketball frame and is still raw in his technique and anchor on first contact, but teams will like his perceived upside. He could be valued higher than the six eligible Supplemental Draft hopefuls.

Stony Brook senior T Michael Bamiro was not allowed to enter the Supplemental Draft after being ruled ineligible for his final collegiate season.

This makes Bamiro a free agent and able to sign with any team. He will reportedly hold a workout for NFL evaluators on July 11. Bamiro's eligibility started at Pittsburgh despite not playing football. He then redshirted his first year at Stony Brook after choosing to pick up the sport. Bamiro did petition for an extra year, but that was obviously denied. He was a three year starter at right tackle and could have a better career than the six prospects eligible for the Supplemental Draft.

National Football Post's Russ Lande writes Stony Brook RB Miguel Maysonet could be a third down back in the NFL.

"While he lacks great size and has only been a full-time starter for one season, his dynamic quickness, agility and balance enables him to change directions in a flash to make sharp cuts and make tacklers miss," Lande writes. "When he gets beyond the line of scrimmage with the ball, he is a dangerous runner who is a legit touchdown threat on every play. However, Maysonet is not natural catching passes and does not wrap-up and protect the ball consistently. He will need to improve in both of these areas to stick in the NFL long term, but if he does he could turn out to be a versatile backup tailback and big play third down back."

Newsday's Kimberely A. Martin reports Stony Brook RB Miguel Maysonet has three workouts scheduled.

"RB Miguel Maysonet already has private workouts set up w/ the #NYJ, #NYG (next month) and #Patriots (Wed)," Martin tweeted. Maysonet ran a 4.45 40-yard dash at his school's pro day and a short shuttle of 4.01, which would have been the best at the combine among running backs. He tweaked his hamstring at the combine, thus missed taking part in drills.

Draft insider Tony Pauline believes Stony Brook WR Kevin Norrell "has some Victor Cruz to him."

Norrell ran a 4.53 forty during the school's pro day and measured in at 5090/208 pounds. Pauline has "always liked him on film," and a comparison to the undrafted Cruz is certainly high praise for a player flying under the radar.

Stony Brook RB Miguel Maysonet ran a 4.45 forty at the school's pro day.

His short shuttle time was a 4.01, which would have been the best among participating Combine running backs. Maysonet dealt with a tweaked hamstring, so he missed a large portion of activities in Indy. We really like the Stony Brook product in the later rounds.

Stony Brooks has delayed their Pro Day until Friday, March 22.

The highest profile prospect attending is running back Miguel Maysonet, who missed the Combine due to a lingering hamstring injury. He is a bruising back that, if given the opportunity, could be a candidate for this year's Alfred Morris.

Stony Brook RB Miguel Maysonet is being featured in a series on ESPN New York.

Maysonet will talk about his path to the Combine, where he'll be one of 38 running backs testing, in a series of installments for the website. Scouts have said he could be drafted between the fourth and seventh rounds depending on how he tests. He ran a 4.55 40 yard dash last spring.

Stony Brook RB Miguel Maysonet is recovering from a hamstring injury while preparing for the NFL Combine and does not expect to run the forty in Indy.

Maysonet never missed a game during his four year career, so an injury history isn't a concern. The hurt hamstring occurred during Maysonet's first week of training in January while attempting a 40 yard dash. The Seawolf is one third day runner that could produce if given an opportunity due to hard and efficient running.

Questions will persist regarding an alleged incident that led to Marcus Coker transferring from Iowa, but the running back is looking forward to starting anew with the Seawolves.

Imagine being the second-leading rusher in the Big Ten one season and the next you’re preparing to play for – Stony Brook? Such is the case with former Iowa star running back Marcus Coker, who transferred after authorities investigated an alleged assault.

Running back Marcus Coker, who was second in the Big Ten in rushing, asked for and was granted a release from his scholarship at Iowa.

Coker was suspended for the Insight Bowl due to unspecified reasons pertaining to conduct. The university would not go into detail as to Coker's release, but the sophomore was cited in an Iowa City Police Department assault investigation in October. This marks the second straight year a promising Hawkeyes running back was suspended for a bowl game and then left the program. Adam Robinson ran for 941 yards and 10 TDs last season before his arrest for possession of marijuana. Coker took Robinson's place in the 2010 Insight Bowl and ran for 219 yards in a win over Missouri. Coker remained the No. 1 RB and piled up 1,384 yards rushing with 15 TDs.

Iowa running back Marcus Coker was suspended for the Insight Bowl against Oklahoma for reasons related to his conduct. Coker is the Big Ten's second-leading rusher.

You have to wonder what’s up with Iowa running backs prior to the Insight Bowl. Last year, Adam Robinson violated team rules and was suspended for the bowl. That opened the door for Coker, who ran for 219 yards in a win over Missouri. He carried the momentum into his sophomore season rushing for 1,384 yards and 15 TDs. The problem this time around for the Hawkeyes and coach Kirk Ferentz is that there is no clear-cut backup. Redshirt freshman DeAndre Johnson is second on the team with all of 18 carries.

Marcus Coker ran for 139 yards in host Iowa’s 31-21 win over Purdue.

For Coker, it was his seventh 100-yard game this season and fifth in the last six games. He ran for one score giving him six straight games of at least one TD. Coker has run for 1,297 yards and 14 TDs.

Iowa running back Marcus Coker rushed for 132 yards and two touchdowns in an upset win over No. 15 Michigan.

Coker pounded the ball 29 times for an average of 4.6 yards per carry. The sophomore's touchdown runs of 4 and 13 yards steadied the Hawkeyes' upset victory over the 15th ranked Wolverines.
