Texas A&M K Josh Lambo is "a true two-stepper, which is good," an NFL special teams coach said.

"I don't know why he didn't kick off," he added. "There must be a reason. Any time a guy doesn't do it, that's an alarm. He missed four of 15 at the combine, which isn't very good. I wasn't real impressed with any of the kickers or punters. I thought it was a down year." The former soccer player connected on 84 percent of his field goals in school. "Little bit older at 24," another special teams coach said. "Really smart. I like him a lot." He could potentially go late on Day 3. Otherwise, he'll be a UDFA.

Texas A&M G Jarvis Harrison was labeled a "knucklehead" by three different scouts speaking with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"He played really well in 2013, but this year he just kind of did his own thing and it showed," one scout said. "The trainer will tell the offensive linemen when they come into the locker room to cut the tape off their shoes and put it in a specific pile. Everybody follows that to the letter, but he'll do something completely opposite. Not very highly regarded at the school. He's smart enough to know to stay out of the police blotter type of thing. Just a pain in the (expletive)." Harrison started at both LG and LT in College Station. "They benched him for like the first four games of (2014)," another scout said. "I could never get a straight answer there. Athletically, he certainly has the ability to go third round. He's lazy." A third scout was more complimentary: "He short-sets these guys and gets his hands on them, they're dead. On film, the guy was extremely impressive."

Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi has dealt with "back issues his whole career," according to an anonymous scout.

"Just during games you'd see him stretching, and in practice he was always doing some maintenance on the back. There's got to be some legitimate concerns about the back," the scout concluded. A previous quote in early March from a scout, also via McGinn, stated Ogbuehi rarely practiced due to always being hurt. The athletic left tackle is coming off an ACL injury sustained in the school's bowl game but is on track to help in year one.

ESPN's Todd McShay wrote that it's "hard to evaluate [Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi] as a left tackle, because he had some ups and downs playing the position."

"Any time he was threatened by power, it usually didn't go very well. But his versatility is very valuable and he has outstanding foot quickness and overall length (including 35 7/8-inch arms)," McShay wrote. "He needs to get healthy, coming off of a torn ACL, and then get stronger." We've loved Ogbuehi's game for years, but would like to see him correct his punch timing. As is, he's losing power on first contact.

Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi is scheduled to visit the Broncos next Tuesday, according to Mike Klis.

Lance Zierlein recently said Ogbuehi was "locked into" the first round, and the Broncos make a lot of sense due to their need at right tackle and guard. Ogbuehi has filled both spots and each might be a better NFL fit than left tackle. We have been big fans of Ogbuehi's game for multiple years, but he does need to fix his punch timing in order to create more power on first contact.

Some NFL OL coaches believe Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi is the best prospect at his position in the 2015 class, according to Steve Palazzolo.

Palazzolo works for PFF and is one of the leading members of CFF, and both services meet with NFL coaches and personnel staffers. We aren't surprised by the comment, as Ogbuehi is one of the more athletic tackles in the draft but does need to fix his punch timing in order to generate more strength. He has experience at both tackle spots and at guard.

After speaking with "multiple teams," NFL Media's Lance Zierlein says Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi is a lock to be selected in the first round.

"He's going in (the) 1st," Lance tweeted. We absolutely respect Lance's views and he is one of the more well connected media members out there. Ogbuehi is a first-round talent who could be selected outside of it, but teams likely fear ACL injuries less and less each season. As Zielrein said on Josh Norris' podcast, Ogbuehi has strength but does not use it efficiently at all times due to a low punch point. Ogbuehi ranks as a first-round grade and No. 16 overall on Norris' board.

Per CBS Sports' Frank Cooney, some NFL teams think that Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi's "tepid play" last season "might be a window into his soul" and they "question Ogbuehi's commitment to the game."

"He showed plenty of ability over the years and the magic of modern medicine should make Ogbuehi almost whole again, but maybe not physically and mentally until the 2016 season," Cooney wrote. "When healthy, Ogbuehi is a powerful run blocker and agile, athletic pass blocker, but isn't considered an enforcer, especially off his measured, 2014 season performances. He has experience at guard and depending on how he plays after rehab, that may be handy." Ogbuehi lobbied to get picked by the Lions in a recent visit with the team's brass in Detroit. "I haven't reached my potential yet, and just with my arms and my feet, once I reach my potential it'll be fun to see. I'll be a guy that can come in and protect (Matthew) Stafford. That's the No. 1 goal protect the quarterback. I can be here for a long time," he said.

Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi had a pre-draft visit with the Lions on Monday, according to Detroitlions.com.

The Lions currently have OT Riley Reiff, who is capable of playing both tackle positions. With second-year player, Travis Swanson, to take over the center position, while Larry Warford will man the right guard spot. The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Ogbuehi could be a potential target at No. 23 for the Lions, who could man either the left guard or right tackle position. The Texas A & M prospect was a starting guard and right tackle during his first three seasons for the Aggies, and should probably hear his name called somewhere in the back end of the first round.

ESPN's Kevin Weidl believes Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi will appeal to the Eagles on Day 2 if they don't pick an offensive lineman in Round 1.

"There has been a lot of talk linking the Eagles with Oregon tackle Jake Fisher, given his connection with Kelly," Weidl wrote. "And while Fisher would make sense here, another option could be Ogbuehi, who has almost been forgotten about after an up-and-down year and a season-ending torn ACL in 2015. He would be a good fit for Kelly's system with his foot quickness, agility and excellent length (35 7/8-inch arms), and the zone-blocking scheme would help mask his struggles against power." The analyst also believes Ogbuehi's versatility would be greatly valued to a Philadelphia offensive line struck hard by suspensions and injuries last season. Ogbuehi could conceivably play four different positions on the line, depending on Kelly's preference. The 6-foot-5, 305-pounder is graded as a first-rounder by many, including Rotoworld, so it's no sure thing he'd be available when the Eagles were up in Round 2.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein reports that NFL evaluators are "very worried" about Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi's "core strength and ability to anchor in pass protection."

"But some of his anchor issues could be improved with technique work -- especially where his hands are concerned," the analyst added. "He should be a plus run blocker, especially on stretch plays, but needs to add strength and work on technique if he is to reach his play potential. Ogbuehi's bowl-game injury could hurt his draft standing, but his traits and potential might be able to keep him in the first round." He offers an NFL comparison of Eugene Monroe. Ogbuehi is recovering from a torn ACL suffered in the Aggies' bowl game. The 6-foot-5, 305-pounder is graded as a first-rounder by many, including Rotoworld.

Texas A&M TE or T Cameron Clear is scheduled to visit the Pittsburgh Steelers on April 13.

Clear is a bulkier tight end who could move to tackle in the NFL, but some teams might view him as an inline tight end who can improve as a receiver. According to Charean Williams, Clear met with scouts from the Patriots, 49ers and Browns during his pro day workout.

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt believes Texas A&M redshirt senior G Jarvis Harrison can "play left tackle or guard" at the next level.

"Harrison -- who has 33 1/4-inch arms -- is a good football player and looked very good in the positional drills. He can play left tackle or guard. Teams will just have to hope that a prospect with this much ability can get his act together because he can have a future in the NFL," Brandt wrote. The Texas A & M prospect happened to show up late for the Aggies pro day, which is not the perfect way to impress future employers. The 6-foot-3, 325-pound Harrison stood on his numbers from the combine, where he was a top performer in the three-cone drill for his position group.

Texas A&M CB Deshazor Everett has recently met privately with the Tampa Bay Bucs, Carolina Panthers, Houston Texans, San Francisco 49ers, Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears, reports TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

Everett, a combine snub, had a great workout on Wednesday in which he "justified that surprise," according to Pauline. Everett posted a 4.47-second 40, a 6.78-second three-cone drill, a vertical jump of 38 inches and a 10-10 broad jump. "I'm told he looked smooth and very fluid in all the drills besides running faster than many expected," Pauline wrote.

Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi (ACL) announced he will be healthy in time for the start of training camp.

Ogbuehi ripped an ACL in the Aggies' bowl game and had surgery about six weeks ago. He has maintained throughout that he'd be ready to play in the 2015 season, and today's news doubles down on that confidence. The 6-foot-5, 305-pounder is graded as a first-rounder by many, including Rotoworld. He is our No. 17 overall prospect, though we don't factor injuries into the evaluation. "Ogbuehi has enough strength, length and athleticism to hold up on the outside. There are real flashes of the complete package, he needs to win more often on first contact in order to sustain success," Josh Norris wrote.
