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.

Tulane LB Trent Mackey declared for the 2014 NFL Draft.

After being named the Conference USA's preseason defensive player of the year, Mackey was suspended for the season in August after he was charged with armed robbery. Mackey tallied 145 tackles in 2012 and was named a first-team All-CUSA linebacker. Mackey is undersized, has huge character questions, didn't play at a BCS school, and just sat out the past season. He's unlikely to be drafted.
Jan 10 - 10:13 PM

Tulane senior WR Ryan Grant caught seven passes for 113 yards in the school's 24-21 loss to Louisiana-Lafayette.

Grant hauled in a very difficult downfield catch, high pointing in traffic, that resulted in a 49 yard gain. He is a Senior Bowl invite and could earn a second day evaluation when the process is over.

Tulane will meet Louisiana-Lafayette in the New Orleans Bowl on December 21.

This game is thin on NFL prospects, with Tulane receiver Ryan Grant, a Senior Bowl invitation, clearly the top player to watch. There's a chance he winds up in the second day of May's draft.

Tulane will play Louisiana-Lafayette in the New Orleans Bowl on December 21.

Tulane's top prospect is senior receiver Ryan Grant, who is headed to the Senior Bowl in January. He could emerge as a second day selection at the event. On the other hand, ULL lacks senior talent.

The 2014 Texas versus Nation game has been cancelled "due to extenuating circumstances."

We expect others smaller showcase games to do the same. In fact, we could wind up with only the Senior Bowl, East-West Shrine game, the NFLPA game, and a couple less publicized contests. It is disappointing, since many prospects get their chance to shine at these all star contests.

Tulane WR Ryan Grant has been invited to the Senior Bowl.

The Tulane offense has done a pretty good job of posting points this season, and Grant has caught 57 passes for 737 yards and seven touchdowns. Some receivers have really emerged in the event, most recently Marvin Jones, and Grant will be looking to do the same.

Tulane WR Ryan Grant's draft stock was listed as "rising" by draft insider Tony Pauline and "falling" by NFLDraftScout.com's Dane Brugler.

Grant has caught 24 balls for 348 yards and three TDs in Tulane's first three games. He's quickly becoming a polarizing draft prospect. "He's neither big (6-feet, 190-pounds) or fast (4.58-forty) but a dependable wide out with the tools necessary to grab hold as a fifth receiver for an NFL squad," writes Pauline. Brugler takes issue with Grant's ball security. "He is definitely a top-100 candidate and he deserves to be talked about more at the national level, but holding onto the ball and finishing catches will go a long way to making this happen," Brugler wrote.

Joe Montana's son, Nick, has been named Tulane's starting QB.

Montana spent last season at the JUCO level after he was granted his release from Washington. Head coach Curtis Johnson said Montana had a chance of winning the job all along, and he must have outperformed the other contenders. His pocket awareness has reportedly improved drastically. He passed for 147 yards and one touchdown in four games at Washington.

Tulane junior Nick Montana will likely win the starting QB job for the Green Wave.

"If (Devin) Powell outplays Montana in the preseason, he might win the job, but it's hard to imagine him actually accomplishing that goal," Rivals' Guerry Smith writes. "Montana has more experience, having started a full season in junior college after losing a tight battle for the starting job at Washington as a freshman, and certainly more pocket awareness." Powell, on the other hand, was sacked nine times in just over six quarters of play.

Tulane senior LB Trent Mackey's robbery trial has been pushed back to July 9.

Mackey was charged for armed robbery last August, so the legal process has already dragged on for quite a bit. The linebacker is accused of setting up a robbery at gunpoint, but has denied the claims. He hopes to rejoin the football team in time for fall practice.

Tulane senior WR Wilson Van Hooser has asked for his release from scholarship in the hopes of transferring to a different program.

"I need to step up for my family, and I need to be the one to be back in Montgomery (Ala.) to help out as much as I can," Van Hooser said. As the quote says, Van Hooser intends to transfer closer to home. He graduates this spring, so he will not have to redshirt the 2013 season.

Buffalo Bills GM Buddy Nix said the QB class is better than everybody thinks it is.

"Five or six of those guys -- maybe seven -- do a lot of things good and do them good enough to win. This is not a standard answer. I've said this from the start, that two or three of these guys will be franchise quarterbacks. I believe that," Nix said. "The jury's out on this group, but they do enough good things that if you do what they do best you can win with them."

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl believes evaluators should keep an eye out for Tulane QB Ryan Griffin.

Weidl calls him the "potential wild card" of the quarterback crop. "Has some impressive tape and hearing a lot of buzz about him." We first heard Griffin's name from CBS Sports' Dane Brugler, who would select the Tulane product over the likes of Landry Jones and others on the third day.

The Times-Picayune's Tammy Nunez reports Tulane QB Ryan Griffin has privately worked out for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Nunez adds that Griffin has also worked out for the New Orleans Saints. Tulane has a pro day scheduled this week, where Griffin can show off his talent. "It's just another opportunity to show what I can do," Griffin said. "I'm just trying to look at it like I'm going to have fun, I'm going to play football, I get a chance to do what I love. This is what I love to do and this is what I want to do. I expect to show them what I got, stay relaxed and have some fun with it."
