Sam Houston QB Jeremiah Briscoe completed 1-of-6 passes for 15 yards in a 14-10 victory over the East in the East-West Shrine Game on Saturday.

Briscoe had one pass dropped, but his completion should have been an interception, but instead miraculously ended up in the hands of South Dakota State receiver Jake Wieneke. Briscoe also reportedly had some issues during practice with accuracy, and this didn't do anything to alleviate those concerns. At this point, it'd be an upset if he was selected in the NFL Draft.

East-West Shrine Game participants on the West team told the Sporting News' Eric Galko that Sam Houston State DL P.J. Hall impressed them most during the practice week.

Galko was also hearing good things about Texas DT Poona Ford from players, but it was the 6-foot, 308-pound Hall whose name came up most. The Sam Houston State standout posted at least 19 tackles for loss in each of his four seasons with the Bearkats and profiles as a likely Day 3 selection for the draft, one who has the upside chops to rise during the evaluating process. Off to a good start.

Sam Houston QB Jeremiah Briscoe met with the Jets on Tuesday.

Briscoe (6'3/220) threw for 57 touchdowns as a junior, and led Sam Houston State to the FCS semifinals in 2017. He currently projects as a late round pick, but a strong showing in the East-West Shrine Game and practices could see that draft stock rise.

Sam Houston State senior QB Jeremiah Briscoe accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Briscoe (6'3/225) is coming off one of his worst games with the Bearkats, throwing three interceptions in a semifinal loss to North Dakota State on Saturday. The senior signal-caller has put up ridiculous numbers since transferring from UAB to SHSU, however, throwing for 98 touchdowns in his last two seasons. This will be a great chance for Briscoe to show he can handle quality competition, and could see his late-round or undrafted free agent stock rise to early Day-Three consideration if things go well at the Shrine Game and his pro day.

Sam Houston State senior QB Jeremiah Briscoe completed 29-of-51 passes for 289 yards with a touchdown and three interceptions in a 55-13 loss to North Dakota State on Saturday in the FCS playoffs.

Briscoe has some of the best passing numbers in the country -- FCS or FBS -- but really struggled against the powerhouse that is the North Dakota State Bison. This game was over at halftime, with the Bison leading the Bearkats 41-3 after 30 minutes. Even with the poor game, Briscoe still ranks as the top FCS quarterback prospect in the country, and if he tests well, he has a chance to be drafted. This will be a game he'll likely want to forget, however, and won't help his draft stock.

Sam Houston State senior QB Jeremiah Briscoe threw for 504 yards and four touchdowns on 28-of-43 passing in a 54-42 victory over South Dakota on Saturday in the FCS playoffs.

Briscoe (6'3/225) has been one of the most dominant players at the FCS level this year, and is beginning to draw buzz as a potential NFL draft pick. The former UAB quarterback has now thrown for 41 touchdowns, which pales in comparison to the 57 he threw last year, but still, pretty good. He's going to have to pass some tests because of the system the Bearkats play in, but if he does, he could be an under-the-radar prospect to keep an eye on.

Sam Houston State senior DL P.J. Hall has accrued 78.5 tackles for loss over his career.

That includes 67.5 TFL from 2014-2016, and 11 this season. Not only that, but Hall is a special-teams demon who's blocked an incredible 12 kicks in his career. ESPN's Mel Kiper believes this FCS tweener may have what it takes to stick around in the NFL, despite his unorthodox frame. "Hall takes on double-teams and is still able to be disruptive," he wrote. "He's a powerful defender. At 6-1, 270 pounds, Hall might be an end in a 3-4 defense at the next level. He's likely a Day 3 pick with upside and versatility, but his stock could rise if he gets an invite to the Senior Bowl and plays well."

NFL Media's Chad Reuter named Sam Houston State senior QB Jeremiah Briscoe one of the nation's 150 best players.

Briscoe was one of the few FCS players listed by Reuter. Briscoe won the Walter Payton Award -- for the top offensive player in the FCS -- over WR Cooper Kupp after throwing for 4,602 yards and an NCAA-leading and FCS record-breaking 57 touchdowns last season. Briscoe transferred over from UAB a few years ago after the Blazers shut down their football program. Boy would they like to have him back now that UAB is getting its program back up and running in 2017. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Briscoe heads into the year with a late Day 3 draft grade, but much can change between now and then.

Missouri junior TE Josh Moore transferred to Sam Houston State.

Moore has played on the defensive side of the ball with Missouri, but he will shift to tight end at Sam Houston State. The position won't be completely foreign to the 6-foot-5, 260-pounder, as he was a tight end in the 2015 class before he shifted over to the defensive line. Because he has opted not to transfer to another FBS program, he will be eligible to play immediately in 2017.

Missouri junior DL Josh Moore will transfer.

Moore -- originally a tight end out of high school -- has played both defensive end and defensive tackle over the past two seasons after switching over to the defensive side of the ball. Despite his versatility, the 6-foot-5, 260-pounder was never quite able to gain a foothold on the depth chart. This past season, he registered all of two tackles.

Six players have been declared eligible for the 2016 NFL supplemental draft.

Purdue DL Ra'Zahn Howard, Concordia DL Cameron Walton, Sam Houston State RB Jalen Overstreet, Ole Miss DB Tee Howard, Canadian WR Rashaun Simonise and Virginia Tech LS Eddie D'Antuono have all been declared eligible. The supplemental draft will occur on July 14. Any team opting to select a player in the July event (some years, there are no supplemental picks made) will have to forfeit the corresponding pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Josh Gordon, whom the Browns selected with a second-round pick in the 2012 supplemental draft, stands as the most famous recent example of a player picked through this process who subsequently found high-profile success in the NFL.

Jets selected Sam Houston State P Lachlan Edwards with the No. 235 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Edwards is an FCS punter, and an Australian native. He'll obviously be the odds-on favorite to start, as the Jets entered draft weekend without a punter. Edwards will have to be atrocious in camp not to get the job.

Sam Houston State P Lachlan Edwards worked out privately for the Cardinals.

Wednesday's audition was one of Edwards' eight scheduled private workouts leading up to the draft. An Australian native, Edwards is competing to become the first punter off the board later this month.

Sam Houston State senior P Lachlan Edwards accepted an invite to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

The native of Hastings, Victoria, Australia was a First team All-Australian University in Australian Rules football back in 2012. He's also played rugby, cricket and ran track and field. Edwards is big (6-foot-5) and has a huge leg. He'll likely be a camp leg in the summer.

Texas has dismissed redshirt sophomore RB Jalen Overstreet due to a violation of team rules.

Beat writer Chip Brown revealed the football team recently took a drug test, which might have been a reason for the recent dismissals. Taylor Gaspor of Orange Bloods says this is Overstreet's second offense. The redshirt sophomore was expected to have a much larger role this season.
