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.

Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi "did everything as well as (Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews)," an NFL scout said.

"He is really talented but soft and doesn't play very strong," the scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "I've been in there three years in a row and have never seen him practice. Guy's always hurt." Ogbuehi started for about three-and-a-half collegiate seasons. He tore an ACL in the Aggies' bowl game and had surgery about six weeks ago. Ogbuehi believes he'll play next season.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline notes that Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi's 2014 struggles were based on his poor acclimation to right tackle after a mid-season shift.

"I was told the offensive lineman really struggled moving from the right tackle to left tackle," Pauline wrote. "The stance and set-up threw him for a loop in the early part of the campaign but it was brought to my attention that Ogbuehi played well on the left side late in the year." The 6-foot-5, 305-pounder is graded as a first-rounder by ESPN's Todd McShay. Rotoworld's Josh Norris is similarly a big fan of Ogbuehi.

Texas A&M G Garrett Gramling has decided to retire rather than pursue an NFL roster spot.

Gramling started 10 of 12 games in 2014 and earned a Combine invite, which he ultimately turned down. We aren't sure if Gramling necessarily earned that invite in terms of on the field play, but Texas A&M certianly has produced a number of OL prospects lately.
Feb 8 - 4:19 PM

Texas A&M senior TE Cameron Clear was invited to the 2015 NFL combine in Indianapolis.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler was surprised by the news. "With only five catches in 11 games as a senior, it's easy to overlook Clear, but NFL scouts think he was underutilized in College Station," Brugler wrote. "Built well for the NFL game at 6-5 and 273 pounds, Clear is also more agile than his size suggests." Clear is a lauded run blocker, and can function as an extra tackle in pass protection.

Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi "needs to show that he at least has more weight-room strength than people think" at the combine, wrote NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

"Ogbuehi tore his ACL in the Aggies' bowl game, so he's limited in what he can do as he recovers from the injury," Zierlein wrote. "He has said he intends to participate in the bench press, though. Teams want to know that he's strong, and I think the bench press is a huge opportunity for him. People think he has a problem with functional strength." Rotoworld's Josh Norris is a fan of Ogbuehi, but believes the tackle needs to work on his punch timing and placement. The 6-foot-5, 305-pounder is still graded as a first-rounder by ESPN's Todd McShay.

Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi said he will bench press at the NFL Combine despite tearing his ACL in the school's bowl game.

Ogbuehi said he tore his ACL in the third quarter but did not realize the significance and finished the contest. He expected a sprained MCL, but once arriving at his pre-Combine training an MRI revealed the torn ACL. Rotoworld's Josh Norris is a huge fan of Ogbuehi, and believes the tackle needs to work on his punch timing and placement.

High school defensive tackle Daylon Mack, the No. 6 player in the ESPN 300, signed with Texas A&M.

Mack and A&M, who have ostensibly just begun their relationship, already have the appearance of an on-again, off-again high school relationship. Mack committed to the school way back in October, 2013, and then decommitted from the Aggies on Dec. 19. He flirted with TCU and Texas, but ultimately remained loyal to Kevin Sumlin. Mack (6-foot-1, 330 pounds) is "built like a Mack truck," according to his scouting report. "Mack should physically be ready to make the jump and contribute early as a college DT although he needs to improve pad level and pass rush polish to become elite," it read.

High school defensive tackle Daylon Mack, the No. 6 ranked player in the ESPN 300, will announce between TCU, Texas and Texas A&M on Wednesday.

"Since decommitting from the Aggies on Dec. 19, the Horned Frogs have been trending, but a Jan. 23 visit to Austin placed the Longhorns in the thick of the race," noted ESPN.com's RecruitingNation. Mack (6-foot-1, 330 pounds) is "built like a Mack truck," according to his scouting report. "Mack should physically be ready to make the jump and contribute early as a college DT although he needs to improve pad level and pass rush polish to become elite," it read.

Texas A&M QB recruit Kyler Murray could face a decision about entering Major League Baseball.

Murray is ranked by some analysts as a top-30 baseball draft prospect, and a few feel he will be a first-round draft pick in the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft in June. "He has a chance to go in the first round," MLB.com and MLB Network’s Jim Callis said. "He’s the X-factor of this [year’s draft]. He can really run, put the bat on the ball, but there’s still some mystery about him." This figures to be a fascinating situation to follow. Murray, a four-star QB recruit, is a perfect fit for Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin's spread offense. The 5-foot-11, 180-pounder doesn't project as an NFL QB, however, so he might have more long-term earning power on the diamond than on the gridiron. Murray is expected to remain at A&M to try his hand at both sports, but keep an eye on his quotes leading up to the baseball draft. "It just depends on how much money the baseball guys throw at him," Murray’s high school football coach, Tom Weatherford, said with a laugh.
