Saints signed Texas A&M OT Joseph Cheek.

Cheek (6'6/295) was a two-year starter at right guard for the Aggies, showing plus athleticism on movement-based blocks but struggling in the power run game and often getting pushed around inside. Cheek's frame is indeed that of a tackle's, but he has short arms (32 3/4") and is short on tackle experience. In order to hang on in the NFL, Cheek will have to demonstrate position versatility as a swing guard-tackle reserve. He is unlikely to grow into a starter.

Rams signed Texas A&M K Taylor Bertolet.

Bertolet (5'8/188) spent a little more than two seasons as the Aggies' placekicker, finishing his career 37-of-56 (66.1%) on field goals and 128-of-138 on extra points. Simply put, Bertolet isn't accurate enough to nail down a job in the NFL.

Chargers selected Texas A&M P Drew Kaser with the No. 179 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Kaser (6'2/212) spent three seasons as Texas A&M's primary punter, averaging 46.3 yards per punt with 60 50-plus-yard punts and 36 percent of his career punts placed inside the opposing 20-yard line. A first-team All-SEC pick as a senior, Kaser possesses field-flipping leg strength and should settle in as a quality long-term NFL punter.

Cardinals selected Texas A&M CB Brandon Williams with the No. 92 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Williams (5'11/197) spent three years in College Station after transferring from Oklahoma, doubling at cornerback and tailback and posting a career 132-651-4 (4.93 YPC) rushing line. He contributed seven pass breakups on defense in 2015. Although Williams blazed 4.37 at the Combine, he showed limited explosiveness and agility. Williams may have to make his NFL living as a special teams gunner. He's a multi-year project as a cornerback.

Seahawks selected Texas A&M OT Germain Ifedi with the No. 31 overall pick in the 2016 draft

Ifedi (6'6/324) played both guard and right tackle, starting each of his three seasons before turning pro. He was a second-team All-SEC pick by the conference's coaches last year. Ifedi has 36" arms and big hands (10 3/4"), and can erase defensive linemen with power and length. His 2015 tape was rough, however, struggling with power and edge speed. Most NFL scouts believe Ifedi should play guard. Ifedi is something of a boom-bust prospect.
Apr 28 - 11:44 PM

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein believes that Texas A&M T Germain Ifedi's "lack of consistency is a concern."

"Teams must first decide if Ifedi is a guard or tackle," Zierlein wrote, "and then he has to learn to be more patient with his hands and technically sound or he'll forever have issues. He does have a high ceiling to be sure." Pro Football Focus understands the boom-bust potential that Zierlein highlights. They view him as one of the most overrated players in the pool, with Michael Renner noting that the 6-foot-6, 324-pounder "routinely lost the first-punch battle" during his time with the Aggies.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein believes that Texas A&M CB Brandon Williams will be a third-round selection.

Zierlein writes that teams are "heating up" on Williams' potential for the next level. Among his athletic testing numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine at the end of February, a 40-yard dash time of 4.37 seconds, 28 reps on the bench press and jumps of 30 1/2 inches (vertical) and 118 inches (broad). An NFC area scout predicted prior to the Combine that the 5-foot-11, 197-pounder would "have a great workout" and "get overdrafted," voicing surprise that Williams even earned an invite.

An NFL scout who spoke with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said that Texas A&M T Germain Ifedi has "got to be a guard."

"Just doesn't move very well," the scout said, adding that Ifedi was "very stiff." Other scouts who spoke with the Journal Sentinel were open in their praise, though, with one saying, "Big, strong guy. Real smart (Wonderlic of 27). Can play guard. I don't see many holes." That scout also noted that Ifedi had three different offensive line coaches during his time with the Aggies. Depending on which team drafts him, he should find more continuity on the coaching front once he hits the NFL.

Texas A&M CB Brandon Williams visits the Steelers on Tuesday, per Aaron Wilson.

Williams is a converted running back who spent 54 percent of the school's defensive snaps at corner this season. Williams stands 5-foot-11 and 197-pounds and possesses 32.5-inch arms and recorded a 4.37 forty at the NFL Combine. A team will definitely take a chance on those measurables.

Pro Football Focus' Steve Palazzolo says Texas A&M CB De'Vante Harris "moves extremely well in coverage, with a good feel for routes in both man and zone coverage."

Pro Football Focus ranked Harris the ninth-most underrated player in the entire draft class. "Even against taller receivers, he’s held his own, as he’s only surrendered 15 catches on 28 targets against 6-3 or taller receivers the last two years," Palazzolo wrote. And indeed the analyst believes Harris plays bigger than his 5-foot-11 height. "There’s some boom-or-bust to his game, as he’ll go all in to make plays at times, but there’s more good than bad and he’s flying under the radar heading into the draft," he concluded.
Apr 18 - 8:24 PM

An AFC area scout praised Texas A&M CB De'Vante Harris' demeanor.

"He believes he's the best player on the field at all times. I love that," the scout said. "If he had about 20 more pounds on those bones we might be looking at something, but I think he's late Day 3 to undrafted." Harris, who runs a high 4.4s forty, had two picks and eight breakups last year. "Intelligent and instinctive, Harris has been a steady contributor for the Texas A&M defense from the moment he stepped on campus," wrote NFL Media's Lance Zierlein. Harris is thin and isn't a sure tackler.

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. projected the Jets to select Texas A&M T Germain Ifedi at No. 20 in his April 6 mock draft.

No. 20 for Ifedi is about as optimistic a projection as you will find at this stage. Kiper is keen on his "long arms and quick feet," though he also understands that the Aggie lineman will need some coaching work before he is truly ready to shine. "You're certainly projecting a little here, because he's far more about potential than polish at this point, but you could end up with a steal at a need position," Kiper wrote. Pro Football Focus is less sunny in their assessment of Ifedi, seeing him as one of the most overrated players in the entire draft.

Texas A&M named graduate QB Trevor Knight the starter in 2016.

We're still waiting to hear the outcome from a number of starting quarterback competitions around the country -- most will be decided in August camp -- but the Aggies cleared up their mystery early. Oklahoma graduate transfer Knight will helm the ship for the 2016 campaign, beating out junior Jake Hubenak for the honor. The 6-foot-1, 202-pounder closed out the spring completing 25-of-36 passes for 282 yards, a touchdown and an interception in the annual Maroon-and-White game. In his best season with Oklahoma (2014), he accumulated 2,300 passing yards (56.6% completions) with a 14/12 TD/INT ratio.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline's sources like Texas A&M T Germain Ifedi as a fit for the Seahawks.

Pauline wrote that "most people I speak with feel Ifedi is a great fit for the team at the end of round one. The recurring comment is "Ifedi is a Seattle Seahawks type of lineman."" The delicious poetry here is that while Ifedi could be a perfect fit for Seattle, the Seahawks do not actually appear interested in pursuing him. They did not send a representative to Texas A&M's late March Pro Day. While Pete Carroll's crew at least outwardly seems disinterested here, the Vikings hosted Ifedi for an official visit on Thursday. Per Pauline, the Texans "really like him" as well.
Apr 10 - 7:34 PM

CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang wrote that Texas A&M RB Tra Carson "has the size of a power back, but his film (and his testing numbers) shows he has the agility to be more than that."

Rang came away impressed with Carson's Pro Day work earlier this week. During athletic testing, he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.54 seconds and notched a 37-inch vertical jump and a three-cone drill run of 7.10 seconds. A toe surgery prevented him from participating fully at the NFL Scouting Combine. NFL Media's Lance Zierlein has compared Carson to Tim Hightower and believes that his ability to be a special teams contributor (among other aspects of his game) could help him to stick on an NFL roster when all is said and done.
