Oregon sophomore QB Morgan Mahalak transferred to Towson.

Mahalk didn't accumulate any statistical production in his two seasons with the Ducks, but there's some potential here. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound gunslinger was a four-star recruit out of Marin Catholic High School and ranked as Rivals No. 11 quarterback prospect in the country several years ago. In a statement, HC Rob Ambrose said, "Morgan brings a tremendous amount of potential and secures great competition at the quarterback position." He'll be in August camp and eligible to play during the 2016 season, as this is an FCS transfer.

Bucs signed Towson DE Ryan Delaire.

Delaire (6'4/254) spent two years at Towson after transferring from UMass, compiling 31.5 TFLs, 22.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, and four interceptions en route to first-team All-CAA accolades in both seasons. He ran 4.97 in Indy, but was recovering from a knee scope and improved to 4.76/4.84 at his Pro Day. Delaire demonstrated natural pass-rush ability at a lower-level college and could grow into a productive sub-rusher once he picks up NFL speed.

Seahawks selected Towson CB Tye Smith with the No. 170 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Smith (6'0/195) made 42 starts for Towson, recording six career INTs and six forced fumbles. He was a first-team All-Colonial Athletic Association pick as a senior. Smith showed sub-par athleticism at the Combine, running 4.60 with a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-4 broad jump. A good lower-level college corner, Smith will need time to develop and should be able to come along slow it in Seattle.

Towson CB Tye Smith "needs some polish with his technique and footwork but has a strong skill set to work with," writes Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl.

"He has plus size (6-foot, 195 pounds) with natural athleticism and good overall range playing the ball," Weidl wrote. "He also flashes solid route-recognition skills with the ability to anticipate and jump routes. Smith held up well against wide receiver Kevin White (No. 4 overall on our board) in the West Virginia game." Smith could be a nice fit with the Patriots as a Day 3 pick, the analyst believes, in order to help fortify a position weakened by the departures of cornerbacks Darrelle Revis (Jets) and Brandon Browner (Saints). Smith is a smart corner who doesn't mind stepping up in run defense. The first team All-CAA selection and AP FCS All-American started all 12 games as a senior, and his 85 tackles ranked second on the team.

Towson DE Ryan Delaire's disappointing Sunday showing at the combine needs to be understand with context, writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Delaire ran a disappointing 4.95 forty. Why is that showing actually impressive? Per Pauline: "Three weeks ago Delaire underwent knee surgery to clip a piece of loose cartilage in the joint and really should not have been running today. Understanding the enormity of his combine opportunity Delaire decided to participate." Delaire unfortunately strained his groin after the forty and was forced to pull out for the rest of the session. Pauline believes Delaire will be back at full strength for Towson's pro day on April 1.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler was a little surprised that Towson senior CB Tye Smith was invited to the combine.

"Smith has been slowly creeping up draft boards, especially after a solid week at the East-West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg," Brugler wrote. This three-year starter has been one of the best CBs in the FCS since he stepped onto a collegiate field. Standing 6-foot, 170 pounds, and expected to run in the high 4.4s or low 4.5s, Smith is a smart corner who doesn't mind stepping up in run defense. The first team All-CAA selection and AP FCS All-American started all 12 games as a senior, and his 85 tackles ranked second on the team. "The thing that stands out most about Smith is his competitiveness," NFL Media analyst Charles Davis wrote last month. "Smith contests every throw his way and makes good plays on the ball."

Towson senior CB Tye Smith "competes like crazy," notes NFL Media analyst Charles Davis.

"The thing that stands out most about Smith is his competitiveness," Davis wrote. "Smith contests every throw his way and makes good plays on the ball."

NFL Media analyst Charles Davis appreciates Towson senior CB Tye Smith's ball skills and footwork.

"Smith (6-0, 185) was a three-year starter for the Tigers and was known as much for his willingness in run support (311 tackles in his career) as he was for his coverage skills (six interceptions, 26 pass breakups)," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Mike Huguenin. "Smith also can lay the lumber (six forced fumbles in his career)." Standing 6-foot, 170 pounds, and expected to run in the high 4.4s or low 4.5s, Smith is a smart corner who will confront backs. He must bulk up to have any chance of holding up at the next level, however. The first team All-CAA selection and AP FCS All-American started all 12 games as a senior, and his 85 tackles ranked second on the team.

Towson senior CB Tye Smith is "showing a lot of skill" at East-West Shrine practice and is "quick with good fundamentals," according to TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

"Tye Smith/CB/Towson showing a lot of skill. Quick with good fundamentals; pedal, turn, transition. Like him," Pauline tweeted. The first team All-CAA selection and AP FCS All-American started all 12 games as a senior, and his 85 tackles ranked second on the team. The Towson prospect racked up 312 tackles in his career, the fifth most in Tiger history. Smith needs to bulk up, if he plans to hold his own against bigger wideouts in the NFL.

Towson senior DB Tye Smith accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Smith has been one of the best cornerbacks in the FCS for a few years now. Standing 6-foot, 170 pounds, and expected to run in the high 4.4s or low 4.5s, Smith is a smart corner who doesn't mind stepping up in run defense. He must gain weight to have any chance of holding up at the next level, however.

Browns selected Towson RB Terrance West with the No. 94 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

West (5-foot-9 1/4, 225) was an extremely decorated D-IAA runner, earning Offensive Player of the Year in both the Colonial Athletic Association and all of FCS as a senior. He piled up 802 career carries for 4,849 yards (6.05 YPC) and 84 touchdowns, catching 36 passes. West boosted his stock with a 4.54 forty at the Combine and 10-foot broad jump. He's not a quick-twitch short-area mover, but West's college tape is as good as an running back in this class, with power to beat first contact and Alfred Morris-like jump cuts in the open field. He has enough natural run talent and versatility to become an NFL feature back. He has a strong chance at earning No. 2 duties behind Ben Tate.

An anonymous scout told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that Towson RB Terrance West "doesn't take coaching."

"You might as well not even waste your time," the scout said. West sold shoes in Baltimore upon his high school graduation but caught a pair of buses to try out at nearby Towson. "He made it that way," another scout said. "He has a little bit of an edge. He's a real street kid. But the guy has some hunger and football's important to him." The 5-foot-9, 225-pounder is a favorite sleeper of more than one analyst due to his intriguing combo of size and speed (and, we suppose, productivity; 2,578 yards and 41 touchdowns last season). "Dominated I-AA football," a third scout said. "He's not a blazer but he's a 4.5 guy. He's a yoked-up 225. Good feet. Knows how to play. Good hands. For a guy that was the back of I-AA football, pretty good pass pro guy. He's been the king of his level and school." West finished as the No. 6 RB prospect in the newspaper's poll of NFL scouts.

Towson RB Terrance West visited the Bills on Thursday.

Out of their 30 allotted pre-draft visits, the Bills brought in at least six RBs. It appears as though they're interested in adding another dimension to what should be a heavy ground attack in 2014, and West offers all sorts of intrigue. The 5-foot-9, 225-pounder looks like a bowling ball but deploys a pinball style, keeping his feet moving after contact and using 4.5 speed to find daylight. The combo was good for 2,578 yards and 41 touchdowns last season against inferior competition.

Towson RB Terrance West visited the San Francisco 49ers, Buffalo Bills and the Atlanta Falcons this week, according to Aaron Wilson.

The Falcons visit was previously reported, but the 49ers and Bills are two new names. Both teams are focused on implementing a heavy ground attack, and West offers a pinball style. He could be a third-round selection.

Towson RB Terrance West should "get mentioned among Carlos Hyde, Bishop Sankey and the other top backs in this year's draft," according to NFL.com's Charles Davis.

Davis is presumably speaking to the public, here, as many experts have been espousing West's virtues for months now. "He has the tools to be an effective workhorse in the NFL," Davis wrote. West is a one-cut, downhill runner who flashes good vision and power, which was apparent as he slapped down 2,578 yards and 41 touchdowns last season. The 5-foot-9, 225-pounder ran an impressive 4.54 second 40-yard dash in Indy.
