NFL.com's Mike Huguenin reports that Syracuse senior OT Sean Hickey mentioned that he "received a third-to fifth-round grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board" in 2013.

"Hickey (6-foot-5, 303 pounds) considered turning pro after last season, but received a third- to fifth-round grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board," Huguenin wrote. Our own Josh Norris believes Hickey could be a second day prospect who climbs into the top 40.

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman notes Syracuse senior OT Sean Hickey has bench pressed 225 lbs 41 times.

Hickey (only) stands at 6'5/300 lbs, but impressed Rotoworld's Josh Norris in preseason tape work. In fact, Norris suggested Hickey could be the second day prospect who climbs into the top 40. He displays functional strength and movement skills to stick on the outside. Some might eventually criticize Hickey's length, but he wins with it.

Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer announced that four-star WR K.J. Williams and three-star DB Treevon Prater failed to academically qualify and will not play in 2014.

Williams and Prater have not yet announced their intentions, but they could opt to head to the JUCO ranks for a season or attend prep school. Both will likely have a chance to return to the Orange in 2015, if they choose to do so. "Traditionally, Syracuse and Shafer have stood by most recruits who didn't qualify initially, allowing them to join the Orange after attending prep school or junior college," wrote the Syracuse Post-Standard. The 6-foot-2, 188-pound Williams, who chose Syracuse over offers from Arizona, Michigan, Missouri, Pittsburgh, UCLA, Vanderbilt and Wisconsin, ranks as the No. 31 WR in the country.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes that Syracuse senior OT Sean Hickey's "best NFL fit might be at Offensive Guard."

"Syracuse LT Sean Hickey has light feet and squares well with controlled movements. Average body type and power, best NFL fit might be at Offensive Guard," Brugler tweeted. The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Hickey started all 13 games at left tackle for Syracuse and remains the anchor on their offensive line. Hickey chose to return for his senior season after receiving a third-to-fifth round draft grade last season. To improve his draft stock, Hickey plans to work on his lower body strength which could make him one of Syracuse's best NFL prospects heading into the 2015 draft.

Syracuse senior OT Sean Hickey is a potential 2015 first-round pick, according to NFL.com.

Staff writer Mike Huguenin writes that Hickey "has a chance to be one of the nation's top five offensive tackles this fall." The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Hickey is a ridiculously strong road grader who is also a good athlete for the position. He benches 515 pounds and has completed 41 reps at 225 pounds.

Undersized Syracuse senior LB Cameron Lynch can squat 620 pounds, clean 374 pounds and bench press 435 pounds.

The diminutive 5-foot-11, 226-pound linebacker is a ridiculous athlete, running a 4.7 second forty and posting 36 reps in the 225 pound bench press. That's not all: Lynch can perform a standing back flip and has a 36-inch vertical jump. The odds are stacked against Lynch's NFL dreams due to his stature, but he'll be one of the Orange's best defenders this year.

Syracuse reinstated senior OT Ivan Foy.

Foy was told to stay away from spring practices to work on his academics. Apparently he's gotten his classroom work in order, so Foy will now focus on retaining his starting right tackle gig for the Orange.

Falcons selected Syracuse LB Marquis Spruill with the No. 168 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Spruill (6-foot-1 1/8, 231) was a 2013 All-ACC third-teamer and finished second on the Orange with 62 tackles. He's second in school history with his 40.5 career tackles for loss. Spruill ran a 4.53 forty at Syracuse's Pro Day while also posting a 34.5-inch vertical and 9-foot-9 broad jump. He's a run-and-hit linebacker who should make an impact on special teams as a rookie.
May 10 - 3:37 PM

Giants selected Syracuse DT Jay Bromley with the No. 74 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Bromley (6-foot-3 1/8, 306) reported to February's Combine 26 pounds heavier than his college listing of 280, helping his stock. A three-year starter, Bromley tallied 25.5 career tackles for loss and 14 sacks, including ten as a senior with three forced fumbles. As Bromley just turned 22, he's still growing into his body. An athletic interior penetrator, Bromley is a "three-technique" prospect with 5.06 speed and a 33 1/2-inch vertical. He also played some at end at Syracuse. He'll be a rotational player as a rookie.

Syracuse CB Keon Lyn (knee) will have a late April workout for scouts, reports draft insider Tony Pauline.

Lyn's senior season was cut short due to microfracture surgery on his knee. Pauline estimates that he was "about 80 percent" at Wednesday's pro day event on campus and chose not to work out. Lyn has upcoming visits scheduled with the Dolphins, Lions and Raiders. The corner recorded 75 tackles and three interceptions over 38 career games with the Orange.
Mar 30 - 8:35 PM

Syracuse TE Beckett Wales ran forties of between 4.66-4.72 at Wednesday's pro day.

Wales is back in the saddle after breaking his collarbone in November. In addition to running the 40-yard dash on Wednesday, he completed 21 reps on the bench and posted a 29.5 vertical jump.

NFL.com's Gil Brandt projects Syracuse DT Jason Bromley as a fifth- to sixth-round pick.

"Bromley is a very good athlete who moves around really well, but does have a tendancy to play a bit too upright," Brandt wrote. Bromley (6-foot-3 3/8, 307 pounds) ran forties of 4.97 and 4.98 seconds at Wednesday's pro day. He added a three-cone drill of 7.88 seconds before standing on the rest of his combine numbers. Bromley has NFL size and displayed good scheme versatility in college as a defensive lineman that could play inside or out.

Syracuse LB Marquis Spruill has "special teams demon written all over" him, according to Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl.

Weidl added that the linebacker is a "run and hit maniac." Teams do value potential special teamers in the sixth- and seventh-rounds, but the best role players likely surface from the undrafted ranks.

Sports on Earth's Russ Lande tweeted he spoke with one NFL "higher up" who said none of the QBs in the 2014 class are as good as Ryan Nassib.

Lande later clarified that this NFL personnel member does not work for the Giants. The former NFL scout turned writer listed Nassib as the No. 1 quarterback and player in last year's draft class. Our own Josh Norris prefers at least four quarterbacks in the 2014 group to Nassib.
Feb 19 - 10:57 AM

Syracuse senior DT Jason Bromley accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-4, 290-pounder has NFL size and displayed good scheme versatility in college as a defensive lineman that could play inside or out. He's a strong athlete who could test well at the combine. Bromley will wrap up his college career later this week against Minnesota in the Texas Bowl.
