Raiders selected Tennessee State OT Anthony Morris with the No. 218 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Morris (6'7/303) is an unheralded small-school prospect who flashed some movement ability at his Pro Day, running 5.30 with a 9-foot-2 broad jump and pumping 25 reps on the bench. He'll compete for a roster spot in Raiders camp.

Ravens selected Tennessee State G Robert Myers with the No. 176 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Myers (6'5/326) made 35 starts for the TSU Tigers, earning second-team All-Ohio Valley Conference as junior and senior. Blessed with plus arm length (33 3/4") but sub-par movement skills, Myers ran 5.44 with a 27 1/2-inch vertical and 7-foot-10 broad jump in Indianapolis. Although Myers will have to kick inside in the NFL, he plays with enough power to succeed in a gap scheme and has starting potential down the line.

The Seahawks hosted Tennessee State G Robert Myers for a visit on Monday.

Best case scenario, Myers is fighting for late Day 2 selection. More likely, he's going to be one of the draft's more intriguing interior line names heading into Day 3. The three-year starter attended the Senior Bowl.
Apr 13 - 4:30 PM

The Ravens put Tennessee State G Robert Myers through a private workout following the prospect's pro day.

Tennessee State CB De'Ante "Pop" Saunders "was not allowed to take part in [Tuesday's pro day] workout due to a situation with his grades, which drew the ire of a number of people," wrote TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Saunders hopes to workout during one of the pro days (Florida State, Central Florida or Bethune) in the state of Florida," Pauline reported. Saunders was kicked off Florida late in the 2012 season after spending two years as a starting safety. He spent the past two years with the Tigers.

Tennessee State senior G Robert Myers "looked good in position drills" at Tuesday's pro day workout, wrote TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"I'm told Myers met with the Cleveland Browns yesterday and the team told him he's unlikely to get out of the fourth round," Pauline reported. "Tomorrow, he'll be meeting with the Baltimore Ravens." Myers is one of this season's best small school prospects. He's fighting for a late day 2 selection.

Tennessee State CB De'Ante "Pop" Saunders "has NFL talent, but red flags are flying with regard to his character," according to NFL.com.

Saunders was kicked off Florida late in the 2012 season after spending two years as a starting safety. He resurfaced with the Tigers last year and collected four interceptions, 39 tackles and nine pass breakups. NFL.com believes he projects best to the next level as a safety. If he can keep his nose clean, that is. "Saunders -- who started as a true freshman at Florida -- lacks elite speed, but he has great instincts, is active in run support and can lay the lumber," wrote staff writer Mike Huguenin.

Vikings signed Tennessee State TE A.C. Leonard.

Leonard (6-foot-2, 252) was a four-star recruit to Florida in 2011, but dropped down a level after two arrests, including one for misdemeanor battery of his girlfriend. He stayed out of trouble in the FCS and caught 85 passes for 1,174 yards (13.8 YPR) and 11 touchdowns in two seasons with the TSU Tigers. Leonard's stock got a big boost in February with a 4.50 forty -- fastest of all tight ends at the Combine -- and an eye-catching 10-foot-8 broad jump. He is a highly explosive, playmaking "move" tight end with long arms (33") and big-time fantasy upside in a Norv Turner led offense.

Rams selected Tennessee State C Demetrius Rhaney with the No. 250 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Rhaney is a very averagely built center who wins with quickness. He is more of an occupier and speed bump more than drive blocker. The Rams have some depth at center, so Rhaney will be battling for a roster spot.

Bucs selected Tennessee State G Kadeem Edwards with the No. 143 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Edwards (6-foot-4 1/4, 313) was an FCS All-American as a senior, completing his career with 43 starts and three All-Ohio Valley Conference selections. He played left guard for the TSU Tigers. Edwards displayed adequate athleticism at February's Combine, clocking a 5.25 forty and 27-inch vertical, with 26 reps on the bench. Edwards' long arms (34 1/2") give him a chance to be a plus NFL pass blocker. He has an outside shot to develop into a starting guard.

Tennessee State TE A.C. Leonard and OL Kadeem Edwards will visit the Titans on Monday.

Offensive lineman Demetrius Rhaney and defensive back David Van Dyke joined in on the visit. These four prospects qualify as local visits, so they do not count against the team's limit. Leonard is a very intriguing receiving tight end with great straight-line speed.

Ravens assistant OL coach Todd Washington attended Tennessee State's pro day workout last week.

Washington put OG Kadeem Edwards, a possible late-round prospect, through positional drills. He also took in an impressive workout by 6-foot-1, 301-pound Demetrius Rhaney, who ran the 40-yard dash in 4.92 and 4.96 seconds. The most talked about prospect at the exhibition, of course, was former Florida Gator TE A.C. Leonard. The 6-foot-2, 252 pounder had a 33-inch vertical leap, a 4.40 short shuttle and a 7.14 three-cone drill.

Scout Inc.'s Steve Muench believes Tennessee State TE A.C. Leonard won't be able to rely on his natural athletic ability as much in the NFL as he did in college.

"There is one area of concern when it comes to Leonard after the catch and that’s ball security," wrote Muench. "The ball drifts away from his frame too much and too often on tape." Leonard, who finished with the best TE forty (4.50) and tied for the best broad jump (10-8) at the combine in Indy, was charged with misdemeanor battery while at Florida in 2012. Leonard (6-foot-2, 252 pounds) doesn't care much for blocking, but he has a wide receiver's speed and fluidity in the body of a TE. Because of the strong combine performance, his name could be called on Day 3 of the draft. Muench mentions Seattle, Green Bay and Atlanta as three organizations that could take a chance on either Leonard or former Oregon TE Colt Lyerla.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes that Tennessee State TE A.C. Leonard has legit WR speed and fluidity.

"Leonard has legit WR speed/fluidity and catches the ball with his hands," Brugler tweeted. Brugler also added that The 6-foot-2, 252 pound TE has "No urgency" and is "sluggish off the line of scrimmage and in/out of his breaks." Brugler noted in another tweet that Leonard is a "disinterested blocker" as well. Leonard ran his 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds, the fastest time among all the tight ends at the Combine and the third-fastest for a tight end since 2006. While Leonard has some great physical attributes, he has to hope teams can look past his off-field issues that lead him to transfer to Tennessee State from the University of Florida. After a strong combine performance his name could be called on the third day of the draft.
