Utah State CB Nevin Lawson had a pre-draft visit last week with the Falcons, according to the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.

Scout Inc.'s Steve Muench sniffed out a potential fit between Atlanta and Lawson in March. Lawson (5-foot-9 1/2, 190 pounds), who posted a 4.48 40-yard dash at the combine, had 53 tackles, four interceptions, 13 pass deflections and a forced fumble last season. Muench wrote last month that he "compares favorably with Baltimore's 2009 third-round pick, corner Lardarius Webb."

Utah State CB Nevin Lawson has a pre-draft visit lined up with the Cleveland Browns next Wednesday and Thursday, according to Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.

While At Utah State, Lawson started in 39 consecutive games and was a two-time All-Moutain West Athletic Conference selection. Last season Lawson had 53 tackles, four interceptions, 13 pass deflections and a forced fumble. While lacking the ideal size(5-foot-9 1/2, 190 pounds) at the next level, Lawson makes up for it with his athleticism and physicality to his game. It's possible Lawson could hear his name called on day three of the draft.

Utah State CB Nevin Lawson "compares favorably with Baltimore's 2009 third-round pick, corner Lardarius Webb," according to Scout Inc.'s Steve Muench.

Lawson (5-foot-9 1/2, 190 pounds) asserted himself onto scouts' radars with good showings in both the East-West Shrine Game and Senior Bowl. He posted a 4.48 40-yard dash at the combine. "I was excited to see his tape as a result and he didn't disappoint. He is a quick-twitch corner with the instincts, quickness and balance to shadow receivers underneath plus he's fast enough to turn and run with receivers," wrote Muench. "His competitiveness and short-term memory when it comes to getting beat are also noteworthy." The analyst sees Lawson as a Day 3 pick and suggests the Falcons as a possible fit.

Utah State senior C Tyler Larsen will start for the 52nd consecutive game in Thursday's Poinsettia Bowl against Utah State.

Larsen is considered the second best pro prospect in the game, not as highly-rated as NIU DB Jimmie Ward but expected to go ahead of Heisman finalist Jordan Lynch. "Other potential draftees to keep an eye on are Utah State free safety Maurice Alexander (6-2, 212), Northern Illinois defensive tackle Ken Bishop (6-1, 308) and Utah State cornerback Nevin Lawson (5-10, 186)," writes NFL.com's Mike Huguenin.

Utah State senior C Tyler Larsen accepted an invitation to participate in the East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-4, 312-pounder from Salt Lake City was a preseason Outland Trophy watch list member. Larsen is a power center with a sturdy frame who will likely be taken on the draft's third day.

Utah State senior TE D.J. Tialavea will have foot surgery and miss the remainder of the season.

Tialavea played through the pain for multiple weeks, but ultimately the tight end needed season ending surgery. Junior Keegan Andersen will likely see more first-team reps, since he already has 134 receiving yards and three touchdowns on the season. Tialavea's main role was as a blocker.

Utah State junior QB Chuckie Keeton will miss the remainder of the season due to a severe knee injury suffered on Friday night.

Keeton specifically suffered a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee. It is a disappointing injury, since Keeton was one of the more exciting players in college football. He will still have a year to impress scouts next season.

Utah State junior QB Chuckie Keeton exited Friday's game against BYU with a potentially serious left leg injury.

Keeton was helped to the sideline by the training staff and teammates but was putting little to no weight on his left leg. The quarterback's left knee apparently bent awkwardly on a running play. Keeton immediately grabbed the injury and lost the football along the way. We are crossing our fingers for positive news.

Utah State junior QB Chuckie Keeton completed 29 of 42 attempts for 260 yards and three touchdowns in a 40-12 win over San Jose State.

Keeton added a touchdown on the ground along with 52 yards. San jose State had no answer defensively for much of this contest, struggling with the Aggies' tempo. We'd like to see Keeton test the downfield sections of the field more often, but his game is built on decisive throws in the short to intermediate levels.

Utah State QB Chuckie Keeton completed 21 of 39 attempts for 179 yards and two touchdowns in a 17-14 loss to USC.

As expected, the Trojans focused on defending the short to intermediate sections of the field, asking Keeton to beat them vertically. The Utah State passer made a handful of nice throws, but others lacked placement. It was a good effort.

USC head coach Lane Kiffin compared Utah State junior QB Chuckie Keeton to Russell Wilson.

"You can't tackle him, he runs around and makes every throw, he doesn't seem to get rattled and he plays great in big games," Kiffin said. "This is a really special player." Keeton doesn't quite have the same poise in the pocket as Wilson, especially in the face of pressure, but he certainly has mobility and a strong arm. Expect the Trojans to force Keeton to test downfield.

Utah State junior QB Chuckie Keeton completed 32 of 40 attempts for 360 yards, five touchdowns, and an interception against Air Force.

Keeton added eight carries for 77 yards in this contest. Keeton is unlikely to enter May's draft, but he'll create buzz this offseason at different passing academies. He has the tools that will likely earn a draftable grade.

Utah State junior QB Chuckie Keeton completed 31 of 40 attempts for 314 yards and two touchdowns against Utah on Saturday.

Keeton added 85 rushing yards and a touchdowns to his stat line. Utah State's missed extra point cost them in this game, and Keeton appeared a bit reckless at times, but he has talent that will attract NFL evaluators.

Former NFL scout John Middlekauff talked to coaches who raved about Utah State junior QB Chuckie Keeton.

Keeton started eight games as a freshman and all 13 in 2012, totaling 4,573 passing yards and 50 total touchdowns on a 65.6 average completion percentage. The Aggie can make things happen on the ground as well. Middlekauff noted the same coaches think Keeton could be the best player no one is talking about.

Utah State announced former Tennessee sophomore CB Daniel Gray transferred to the program.

Gray announced the move almost a month ago, but now the transfer is official. He will likely have to sit out the 2013 season to satisfy NCAA regulations. The Aggies produced Will Davis in last year's draft, and Gray is hoping to follow in those footsteps.
