Tulane senior T Arturo Uzdavinis will "impress scouts and draft followers alike with his size, agility and willingness to finish blocks," believes NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

"If he tests as well as I expect after the season, there's no reason he can't be a top-100 pick," Reuter wrote. The 6-foot-7, 304-pounder is entering his third year as starter at left tackle for the Green Wave.

Tulane sophomore WR Leondre James will not be on the football team this fall.

James was suspended after the fall for a violation of team rules and seemingly did not do enough to earn his active status back. Tulane head coach Curtis Johnson said James is on track to re-join the team the following season, but that is disappointing for a player who started four games during his freshman year.

Tulane senior DE Royce LaFrance has returned from suspension.

"I expect to see Royce ready to go" for the start of summer camp, said Tulane HC Curtis Johnson. The 6-foot-4, 265-pound LaFrance led the team with six sacks last season and was third in tackles for loss with 11. He had been suspended for academics.

Broncos selected Tulane CB Taurean Nixon with the No. 251 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Nixon (5'11/187) was a two-year letterman at Memphis before spending two years at Tulane. He blazed a 4.36 at his Pro Day and sports a 38 1/2" vertical jump with an 11-2 broad. The Broncos have an athlete to mold.
May 2 - 6:33 PM

Broncos selected Tulane CB Lorenzo Doss with the No. 164 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Doss (5'10/182) was a field-flipping ballhawk in Conference USA, securing 15 interceptions in just three college seasons. His 271 return yards set a Tulane record. Due to size and athletic limitations, Doss is best suited to play slot corner in the NFL. Doss ran 4.50 at the Combine with a 33 1/2-inch vertical, and has short arms (29 3/4"). He will need to clean up his tackling to become a consistent defensive force.

While Tulane junior CB Lorenzo Doss' "gaudy interception totals are impressive, workouts could prove critical to his final grade," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"While Doss' gaudy interception totals are impressive, workouts could prove critical to his final grade. Doss looks the part of an NFL cornerback with solid overall musculature but he's more efficient than explosive in coverage," Rang wrote. The Green Wave prospect earned Second Team All-American Athletic Conference honors this season, recording 48 tackles and five tackles for loss, with a team-leading nine passes breakups, including three interceptions. Rang notes that Doss "looks the part of an NFL cornerback with solid overall musculature but he's more efficient than explosive in coverage."

Tulane junior CB Lorenzo Doss announced he will enter the 2015 NFL Draft.

Doss turned 20 years old in April and has earned praise from CBS Sports' Dane Brugler in the past. There is no clear top corner in this class, at least at this moment, but we are not sure if Doss factors into that equation. Production-wise he has recorded 15 interceptions in three seasons.

New Orleans Times-Picayune report's that Tulane senior WR Xavier Rush's Wave career has come to an end, after tearing his ACL.

Unfortunately for Rush, he injured his knee during Wednesday's practice. The 6-foot-3, 202-pound senior is Tulane's second-leading wide receiver with 295 yards and three touchdowns. Rush is averaging 19.2 yards a catch. For his career, he's amassed 1,349 yards and 12 touchdowns. Freshman wideout Teddy Veal with take the place of Rush in his absence.

Tulane senior WR Xavier Rush left Wednesday's practice after suffering a possible knee injury.

The school said that Rush "left practice with a possible knee injury and is still being evaluated." The 6-foot-3, 202-pound senior is Tulane's second-leading wide receiver with 295 yards and three touchdowns. Rush is averaging 19.2 yards a catch. For his career, he's amassed 1,349 yards and 12 touchdowns. Should he not be able to go on Saturday, freshman Teddy Veal is his backup.

Tulane senior OT Sean Donnelly is a potential Day 3 pick, says ESPN's Mel Kiper.

"What I saw [watching tape] was a future pro, possibly an early Day 3 selection," Kiper wrote. "Donnelly has tremendous length, standing 6-8, and he's pretty athletic. He has quick feet, does a good job with hand placement and he really stands out for me in the run game, where he gets a great push and will get out in space and line people up. Donnelly has a lot of experience, and has played left tackle as well, having started there in 2012. He's currently at right tackle and likely will stay there when he lands on an NFL roster." Despite his ridiculously rangy frame, Donnelly only weighs 297 pounds. Perhaps, in the pros, he can pack on beef and add even more muscle to his game.

Tulane reinstated true freshman WR Niguel "Teddy" Veal to the football team.

Veal was suspended from the team after his arrest on one count of simple rape. After the Orleans Parish District Attorney dropped the charges, Tulane welcomed him back. The three-star recruit is an electric athlete who could see the field in 2014 if he can get up to speed. "This Veal kid can fly, he runs really well. I love to see him run," Green Wave coach Curtis Johnson said in February.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler writes that Tulane junior CB Lorenzo Doss' resume is as good as any corner's in the country.

Doss picked off five passes and started nine games as a true freshman, and he backed that up with seven interceptions last season as a sophomore, leading the nation with 185 interception return yards and scoring two touchdowns. The 5-foot-11, 168-pound corner runs a 4.52 forty. "Doss is more than just stats and ballskills though, displaying natural instincts and read/react quickness to bait throws and break on the ball to make a play," Brugler wrote. "He lacks 4.3 speed and needs to continue and fill out his frame, but Doss, who just turned 20-years old in April, has put his name on the NFL radar, setting a high bar in 2014."

Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage notes that Tulane redshirt freshman QB Tanner Lee had a "had a quality showing" at the Manning Passing Academy.

"Tulane's Tanner Lee also had a quality showing. Green Wave opens new on-campus stadium 9/6 vs. Georgia Tech," Savage tweeted. The 6-4, 220-pound Lee was impressive in spring practices and outplayed senior Nick Montana and sophomore Devin Powell. The expectations are high on Lee's abilities, as some are calling him Tulane's best quarterback since J.P. Losman. The redshirt freshman will have an opportunity to start this season and to develop into a playmaker for Tulane.

Redskins selected Tulane WR Ryan Grant with the No. 142 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Grant (6-foot 3/8, 199) was a 31-game starter for the Green Wave, tallying 196 catches for 2,769 yards (14.1 YPR) and 21 touchdowns. He earned first-team All C-USA recognition as both a junior and senior. At February's Combine, Grant ran 4.64 with a 35 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-11 broad jump. An excellent college wideout with limited athleticism, Grant would do well to forge an NFL career as a No. 3/possession receiver.

Tulane WR Ryan Grant ran the 40-yard dash in 4.52 and 4.50 seconds at Tulane’s pro day on Friday.

"Grant’s position skills are impressive; he’s a really good route runner and has very good hands," observed NFL.com's Gil Brandt. The analyst pegs Grant (6-foot 1/2, 194 pounds) as a Day 3 pick, probably near the end of the draft.
