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'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'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.
