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.

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.

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.

Syracuse junior RB Jerome Smith will enter the 2014 NFL Draft.

"He just felt it was his time," head coach Scott Shafer said. "He's all set to graduate, all set with school. He felt like he finished school and there wasn't any reason to hang around anymore." Smith has carried the "power rusher" label and tallied 840 yards and 11 touchdowns this season on 4.6 yards per carry. He has been the Orange's starter for the last two seasons.

Syracuse true freshman RB Brisly Estime will be sidelined for Saturday's contest against Florida State.

Syracuse would only say that Estime, the team's starting H-back, is suffering from an upper-body injury, but Orange head coach Scott Shafer revealed on his radio show that Estime broke a bone in his hand. "It was difficult. I love the kid so much," Shafer said. "We'll get him back as soon as possible."

Syracuse redshirt sophomore S Durell Eskridge plans to play in Saturday's game at Florida State.

Eskridge sat out the second half of last Saturday's victory at Maryland due to an upper-body injury. The decision was said to be precautionary, and defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough said he will be "ready to play." Eskridge leads the team with 59 tackles.

Syracuse senior RB Prince-Tyson Gulley (ankle) is expected to play in Saturday's game against Florida State.

Gulley sat out most of last week's victory at Maryland due to an ankle sprain. He has been participating in practice since Tuesday. "He looked like the same old Prince," guard Rob Trudo said.

Syracuse senior CB Keon Lyn (lower-body injury) will miss the remainder of the season.

Lyn's career is now over, as he's played in over 30-percent of Syracuse's games this season. "Keon's got a lower-body injury that is going to require some surgery," Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer cryptically said. Lyn recorded 75 tackles and three interceptions over 38 career games. Draft insider Tony Pauline wrote in July that he considered Lyn a fourth-round talent, while "the scouting community" perceived Lyn as a late-rounder or UDFA. Due in no small part to this injury, we expect the scouting community's opinion to be realized.

Syracuse head coach Scott Schafer named sophomore Terrel Hunt the team's starting QB against Tulane.

Hunt will take over for Drew Allen, who opened the season as the school's starter. Allen had thrown six interceptions and two touchdowns in three games. Comparatively, Hunt threw three touchdowns and no interceptions while completing 17 of 22 attempts. This will be the sophomore's first career start.

Syracuse will continue to start senior Drew Allen at QB, but sophomore Terrel Hunt is expected to see playing time.

Allen has completed 43 of 78 attempts for 468 yards, one touchdown, and six interceptions thus far this season. Obviously those aren't Ryan Nassib type numbers, and Syracuse coaches likely want Allen to protect the football better. The Orange take on Wagner this weekend.

Syracuse senior WR Adrian Flemming will miss the remainder of the season with a lower body injury.

Obviously no details were given, but Flemming suffered the injury against Penn State last weekend. The starting receiver has already had surgery to repair the issue. Flemming hasn't redshirted during his time in college, so he might return next year with a medical tag.

Syracuse quarterbacks coach Tim Lester said after Saturday's scrimmage that senior Drew Allen and sophomore Terrel Hunt are tied atop the quarterback depth chart.

Allen (6-5, 226) graduated from Oklahoma and transferred to Syracuse this summer for his final season of eligibility. He completed 18 of 30 passes for 160 yards over limited playing time for the Sooners the last three seasons. Hunt (6-feet-3, 219 pounds) appeared on special teams during the USC game last season. Allen has the edge in size, arm strength and passing ability, while Hunt has the clear advantage in athleticism. Syracuse doesn't have much time to tab Ryan Nassib's replacement. The Orange opens its season on Aug. 31 against Penn State at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
