Rams signed TCU RB Aaron Green.

Green (5'11/203) spent three years with the Horned Frogs after transferring from Nebraska, parlaying 445 career carries into 2,426 yards (5.5 YPC) and 20 touchdowns. He also caught 39 passes. Green showed passable athleticism at TCU's Pro Day, running 4.57 with a 10-foot broad jump and 6.89 three-cone time. Although Green has exciting foot quickness and some playmaking ability, he "runs small" inside the tackles and struggles badly in pass protection. He's a lower-end scatback prospect.

Seahawks signed TCU QB Trevone Boykin.

Boykin (6'0/212) made 40 starts for TCU, finishing his career as their all-time leader in passing yards (10,728) and passing TDs (86) with a 61.2 completion percentage. He added 27 rushing scores and averaged 4.04 yards per carry. Boykin was a dynamic dual-threat college quarterback, but is short, struggles with touch as a passer and was arrested for felony assault of an officer last December. Although Boykin was open to performing wide receiver drills before the draft, he lacks speed (4.77) and explosion (9'2" broad jump) for a full-time position switch. Boykin would do well to forge a Seneca Wallace-type career.

Seahawks selected TCU C Joey Hunt with the No. 215 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

The undersized prospect at 6-foot-0, 295 pounds. NFL.com's Lance Zierlein has called Hunt an "instinctive, efficient center" who is willing to "climb up to second level rather than linger on secure blocks that are already in the bag." Hunt's most likely rookie home is the practice squad as he gets used to being a smaller pivot in the big leagues.
Apr 30 - 5:29 PM

Bills selected TCU WR Kolby Listenbee with the No. 192 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Listenbee (6'0/197) bookended alpha receiver Josh Doctson as a deep threat, parlaying 74 career catches into 1,432 yards (19.4 YPR) and nine TDs. His explosive athleticism showed up in Indy, blazing 4.39 with a 10-foot-9 broad jump. Listenbee is lanky with small hands (8 1/4") and a one-trick skill set, but his ability to outrun coverage will earn him looks from NFL coaches. Initially, Listenbee should contribute on special teams after shining as a college gunner.

Eagles selected TCU G/T Halapoulivaati Vaitai with the No. 164 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Vaitai (6'6/320) made 30 starts for TCU, moving from right tackle to the left side as a senior and earning second-team All-Big 12. With long arms (34 1/4") and big hands (10 5'8"), Vaitai has the dimensions of an NFL blind-side tackle. Vaitai's game tape reveals a slow-footed mover who lacks the requisite power to play on the right side. Vaitai's Combine measurables were good enough that he's worth a look, but he's unlikely to develop into a meaningful NFL contributor.
Apr 30 - 3:16 PM

Browns selected TCU S Derrick Kindred with the No. 129 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Kindred (5'10/207) made 30 starts at TCU, amassing 12 career tackles for loss with eight INTs and three forced fumbles. He earned first-team All-Big 12 as a senior despite allegedly breaking his collarbone three days before the season. Kindred excelled at the Combine, running 4.5-flat with a 37 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-3 broad jump. Kindred is a hard-hitting box safety with just enough athleticism to perhaps eventually become viable in coverage, though he isn't there yet. Kindred will have to make his early-career bones on special teams.
Apr 30 - 1:45 PM

Redskins selected TCU WR Josh Doctson with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Doctson (6'2/202) needed only three seasons at TCU to set school records in career receiving yards (2,785) and receiving TDs (29), averaging 15.5 yards per catch. Doctson ran 4.5-flat at the Combine with explosive vertical (41") and broad (10'11") jumps. The lone drawback on Doctson's profile is his age, turning 24 late in his rookie year. Docston is an elite athlete with plus size, a consistent winner in the contested-catch game, and one of the top vertical wideouts in this year's draft. He's drawn comparisons ranging from DeAndre Hopkins to Allen Robinson.

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio suggests the Titans could take a WR at No. 15 if they do not trade up for an offensive tackle.

We think Florio has some intel here. The Titans selected Dorial Green-Beckham in the second round last year and have been heavily linked to Braxton Miller in the second round. However, a prospect like Josh Doctson or Corey Coleman would really enhance this offense and build the talent around Marcus Mariota. Many believe the receiver run could start with the Jets at No. 20 or Texans at No. 22, but do not rule No. 15 out.
Apr 28 - 9:25 AM

An anonymous NFL scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that TCU WR Josh Doctson is "very similar to [Laquon] Treadwell" but added "Treadwell's probably a little bit stronger and more physical."

We'd add that Doctson is a step or two faster than Treadwell and far superior down the field. "Very polished route runner," the scout said of Doctson. "Very good hands. Vertical guy. Tracks the ball well." CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora is on record predicting that Doctson will be the first receiver taken. "Great kid," said another scout. "Quiet, smart, reserved. Never have an issue." Doctson tied for the best receiver vertical jump (41 inches) and had the best broad jump (10-11) of the upper-tier WRs. "First round," said a third scout. "Everybody was questioning his 40 time but he ran (fast) at the combine. That puts him in there automatically. He's got great hands."
Apr 22 - 3:40 PM

Pro Football Focus sees TCU C Joey Hunt as "arguably the best pass protector in this class."

Hunt has shown a propensity to "adeptly [mirror] inside rushers [while] having just enough to hold up versus bull rushes," according to PFF analyst Mike Renner. The 6-foot-2, 295-pounder was the cause of just 10 total pressures over the past two seasons. "If he can go to an outside zone heavy team," the analyst believes, "Hunt can be effective." An AFC area scout said earlier this winter that he thinks the TCU product has a legitimate skill-set for the NFL.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora predicts TCU WR Josh Doctson will be the first receiver taken.

Some believe Laquon Treadwell is a lock for this distinction. Doctson is absolutely competing with him for the honor. It also wouldn't surprise if Corey Coleman is ultimately the first receiver taken.

ESPN's Kevin Weidl believes TCU WR Josh Doctson is a perfect fit for the Vikings.

So do we. The Vikes swung and missed on Mike Wallace last year and sent him to the gallows soon after Blair Walsh shanked his chip shot in the playoffs. That leaves Stefon Diggs as Minnesota's only reliable outside option at the moment. "Insert Doctson, who has the size (6-2, 202), leaping ability (40-inch vertical jump) and is one the best at tracking and high-pointing the ball in this year's WR class," Weidl wrote. "Doctson would be the best red zone target Bridgewater has had outside the hashes."
Apr 6 - 6:33 PM

Scott Casterline, the agent for TCU S Derrick Kindred, believes there are in the neighborhood of a half-dozen NFL teams interested in his client.

Predictably, Casterline would not dive into specifics as to which teams might be eyeing Kindred for late April's draft. Said the agent, "I think I can narrow it down to about half a dozen teams for Derrick. But in this business, you never know." He indicated that he was pleased with the TCU defender's Pro Day last week, mostly due to his work in positional drills (Kindred stood on the majority of his Combine numbers). "I know their draft boards are pretty well set by now, but they always want one more look. He didn't disappoint," Casterline said. NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt likes Kindred's ability to contribute on special teams. He's a potential pick late on Day 3, though undrafted free agency might ultimately stand as his fate.
Apr 6 - 12:01 AM

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt believes that TCU S Derrick Kindred "will be a great special teams player for some team."

Brandt highlighted Kindred's special teams before writing, "He's also smart, and because of that will do a great job as a safety." The lone testing event he participated in during Thursday's Pro Day was the bench press, with the 5-foot-10, 207-pounder hoisting the bar 17 times. As for his earlier NFL Scouting Combine results, those including a run through the 40-yard dash in 4.50 seconds, a 37 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 123-inch broad jump. An NFC scout said earlier this offseason that he views Kindred as "probably a [special] teams guy and fourth safety" due to his coverage limitations. NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein, meanwhile, thinks that while undrafted free agency is a realistic outcome at the draft, the TCU defender "[has] got enough talent to fight for a roster spot."

Apr 3 - 8:00 PM

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt believes that TCU WR Josh Doctson "has a chance to be a first-round pick [following his Pro Day on Thursday]."

We will quibble slightly with Brandt on a semantic level here. The analyst sees Doctson's Pro Day as having boosted him closer to the first round, but he was likely already a legitimate prospect in that conversation even before Pro Day festivities. He did drop one pass during positional workouts. Otherwise, smooth sailing. Of late, the 6-foot-2, 202-pounder has drawn legitimate talk of jumping long-presumed No. 1 receiver Laquon Treadwell, with one AFC scout praising his ability to haul in the 50/50 balls and another telling NJ.com's Mark Eckel that nobody should be surprised if Doctson adds "draft leapfrogging" to his resume of impressive skills come April 28.
