ESPN's Todd McShay says Tennessee State senior WR Patrick Smith's draft stock has moved up to earlier in Day 3 this season.

Per McShay, Smith was considered a late-Day 3 pick coming into the campaign. This season, he's inched himself up the Day 3 ladder. Smith does have a few big things going against him. For one, he plays against inferior competition in the FCS. For two, the converted high school quarterback has mediocre measurables at 5-foot-10, 194 pounds with a 4.55 40-yard dash. Despite that, he's been extremely productive. Last year, Smith led his team in receptions (61), yards (966) and touchdowns (13) while starting 11 games. Through nine games this year, he's posted a 38-606-8 line while returning a punt for a touchdown.

Giants signed Tennessee State OG Jessamen Dunker.

Dunker (6’4/318) made 43 starts for the TSU Tigers, shuttling between guard and tackle before settling in on the blind side as a senior. He earned first-team FCS All-America in 2016. Originally a Florida commit, Dunker transferred after a series of 2013 arrests, the most serious involving grand theft of a motor vehicle. Dunker stayed out of trouble in the small-school ranks. A plus athlete who will move inside in the pros, Dunker’s biggest drawback is his shortage of core strength, which limits his run-blocking prowess. He best profiles as a zone-scheme guard.

The Bears will host Tennessee State CB Ezra Robinson for a visit.

Robinson attended the Senior Bowl and emerged as a full-time starter in 2016 after transferring from Michigan State in 2014. He is a day three corner and did not complete a full workout at the NFL Combine.

Former Florida redshirt junior QB Treon Harris is the heavy favorite to start at Tennessee State.

Harris' battle with incumbent starter O’Shay Ackerman-Carter didn't even reach the summer, as Ackerman-Carter announced his intention to transfer on Monday. Ackerman-Carter had started the previous two years. During his up-and-down Florida career, the 5-foot-11, 190-pound Harris completed 174-of-346 (50.3 percent) passes for 2,695 yards and an 18/10 TD/INT ratio. He also rushed 171 times for 570 yards and three touchdowns.

Former Florida junior QB/WR Treon Harris transferred to Tennessee State.

Harris initially left the Gators late last July. He -- along with receiver Antonio Callaway -- had been hit with indefinite suspensions. Callaway remained with the program, while the 5-foot-11, 190-pound Harris opted to explore his transfer options. While he did reportedly see interest from FBS schools, he ultimately decided on a lower-level destination. He will begin taking classes at Tennessee State on Monday and is expected to be a participant in spring practice. Harris will be eligible to play immediately come the start of the 2017 season. Tigers HC Rod Reed said that Harris will play quarterback with his new program. Florida had been attempting to transition him to wideout in the offseason.

Tennessee State OL Jessamen Dunker has been invited to the Senior Bowl.

The former Florida Gator transferred in 2013 after being charged in an off field incident, and cited wanting a fresh start. Since then, Dunker has earned praise for his athleticism and movement at offensive guard. Some teams might view him as a tackle.

Tennessee State DB Ezra Robinson received an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Robinson is a former Michigan State transfer and will turn 23 in February after spending five years in college. Robinson is listed at 6-foot-1 and emerged as a full-time starter this year.

Tennessee State redshirt senior OL Jessamen Dunker "is one of the better zone blocking guards you’ll find from the senior class," notes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

The former Florida Gator transferred out after the 2013 season and ended up resurfacing at Tennessee State. Extracurricular activities ran him out of his first program and may ultimately hurt his draft stock. "Fundamentally sound, he’s a tremendous pass protector and easily moves around the field then annihilates opponents blocking in motion," Pauline wrote. "Though some scouts grade him as a tackle, the position he played for two seasons at TSU, I feel he’s best inside at guard. Dunker’s play grades as a legitimate mid-round prospect but numerous character concerns and off the field issues will raise red flags. He’ll likely end up as a late round choice but if he gets his act together Dunker could line-up with the starting unit on Sunday’s."

247Sports reports that a large number of schools have shown interest in transferring Florida junior QB/WR Treon Harris.

Per the report, FBS schools Southern Miss, Texas State and Georgia State have all spoken directly to Harris’ family. FCS programs including Florida A&M, Howard and Hampton have also gotten in touch. In addition to that, Minnesota, Kansas, SMU, Eastern Michigan, Jacksonville State, East Carolina, Coastal Carolina and Mercer have all requested Harris' release so they can make contact. Harris, a former four-star recruit and the nation's No. 9 athlete in his class, could play quarterback, wide receiver or safety, depending on where he winds up. Harris is expected to settle on finalists by Monday in an effort to enroll in August.

Florida junior WR Treon Harris will transfer.

Florida took to Twitter to confirm widespread reports of Harris' looming transfer. His time in the program was marred by mediocre play and off-field turbulence. On the field, the 5-foot-11, 190-pounder struggled to spark any sort of a potent passing attack (50.3% career completions). And off the field, he was hit with an ongoing indefinite suspension this winter for reasons unknown. Harris transitioned over to wideout in the offseason while under that mysterious suspension. It is unknown at this juncture which programs he might be considering for a transfer. With QB Will Grier electing to join West Virginia's program in the spring, HC Jim McElwain is essentially starting with a fresh slate at the position this coming season, with redshirt junior QB Luke Del Rio probably holding the inside track to win the starting gig.

Florida HC Jim McElwain confirmed widespread reports that junior QB Treon Harris has transitioned to wide receiver.

Gridiron Now's Mike Huguenin reported back in February that Harris would be shifting over to wideout in the spring. That played out as expected. McElwain explained that the move was a logical one. "You’ve got to look at the fit," he said. "Nothing he did. Guys around him didn’t play great either. So I’ll never put that on a player." The 5-foot-11, 190-pound senior largely struggled as a passer in 2015, completing only 50.6% of his passes and posting an uninspiring 9/6 TD/INT ratio. While he continues to work out at Florida's facilities in advance of August camp, Harris' status for the 2016 season remains uncertain. He has been serving an indefinite suspension for reasons unknown since early March. During SEC Media Days, McElwain said, "Nothing's been resolved yet and there's really not a timeframe on it."

Florida HC Jim McElwain said that junior WR Treon Harris remains suspended.

This is one of the more mysterious stories of the offseason. Harris was not with the team in January and Florida levied an indefinite suspension against him in early March. Ditto for sophomore WR Antonio Callaway, whose attorney said that his client's suspension relates to a December incident. McElwain's comments on Tuesday did little to clear up the matter. "Right now they're obviously back on campus," he said, "doing team workouts and some things like that. Nothing's been resolved yet, and there's really not a timeframe on it."

Florida suspended junior WR Treon Harris.

According to HC Jim McElwain, Harris hasn't been with the team since January. There's no word, however, as to why the 5-foot-11, 190-pound junior's being disciplined. He's being transitioned over to wide receiver this offseason after a tumultuous stint as starting quarterback. Last season, he made nine starts and threw for 1,676 yards (50.6% completions) with an uninspiring 9/6 TD/INT ratio. No date has been given for his return.

Gridiron Now's Mike Huguenin reports that Florida sophomore QB Treon Harris will transition to wide receiver this spring.

Harris' passing issues have been persistent and apparent, as the Gator offense fell into a deep, dark hole after Will Grier was suspended mid-season. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Harris finished the season with 1,676 passing yards (50.6% completions) and a 9/6 TD/INT ratio across 11 contests (nine starts). With his transition to wideout and Grier's decision to transfer, the battle to start at quarterback for the Gators figures to boil down to a competition between sophomore QB Luke Del Rio, Purdue graduate transfer QB Austin Appleby and recent recruiting addition of four-star QB Feleipe Franks, who ranks as Rivals' 57th overall recruit for the 2016 cycle.

Florida sophomore QB Treon Harris completed 9-of-24 passes for 165 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Saturday's 29-15 loss to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game.

Harris' highlights were few and far between on Saturday. He was consistently pressured by Alabama's defense and when he did have time to throw, he missed several easy ones. His lone touchdown pass came on an under-thrown wobbler of 46 yards that C.J. Worton hauled in between two defenders. Florida finished out the pre-bowl season having scored 70 points in their final five games, averaging just 14 per contest in that stretch.
