Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins recently worked out for the Lions, according to beat writer Dave Birkett.

The Lions recently signed Brandon Pettigrew to a four year deal, but the Lions would cap space by cutting him as soon as next year, according to Over The Cap. Therefore, he could be on a short leash. Joseph Fauria is more of a detached target, so they could be looking for another inline prospect.

Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (foot) didn't participate in Wednesday's pro day.

Seferian-Jenkins underwent surgery in late February to stabilize a stress fracture in his left foot and is still recovering. The reigning Mackey Award winner doesn't plan to work out prior to the draft on May 8-10. "The injury doesn't appear to have hampered his interest from NFL teams, reports CBS Sports' Rob Rang. "Seferian-Jenkins has "at least eight" visits scheduled."

CBS Sports' Rob Rang noted that Washington senior QB Keith Price had a strong performance at Washington's Pro Day.

"Several scouts leaving Washington's Pro Day had complimentary words for his workout. Most stopped short, however, of characterizing the session as good enough to get him drafted," Rang wrote. Unfortunately for Price, he was not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine and was patiently waiting to perform in front at least 20 NFL teams at Washington's Pro Day on Wednesday. Rang mentioned that Price demonstrated "very good mobility, accuracy" and showed off some good arm strength throughout the throwing session. Prior to his workout, some evaluators have Price (6-foot-1, 202 pounds) as an undrafted free agent, but perhaps he performed well enough to be selected at the back end of the draft.

CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler reports that Alabama is expected to hire Tosh Lupoi.

Lupoi's career appeared to be in jeopardy when he found himself in the middle of an NCAA recruiting probe while an assistant coach at Washington. Instead, he's landed on his feet following a six-week NCAA investigation that absolved him of wrongdoing. Lupoi, an ace recruiter and former DL coach, will not be a position coach with the Crimson Tide.

An AFC personnel executive told NJ.com that he doesn't "want any part of" Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

The decision maker, who earlier in the story said UNC's Eric Ebron was "completely overrated" and "a pain in the (butt)," shredded ASJ as well. "He’s more overrated and a bigger pain in the (butt) than the other guy," the personnel man said. "And he blocks like a wide receiver. I don’t want any part of him." An NFC scout quoted in the story said Seferian-Jenkins was "not a first-round pick" but accepted the usage of a second- or third-round pick as "not bad." The AFC personnel executive added that he believed ASJ was "lazy."

NFL Films' Greg Cosell perceives Washington's Bishop Sankey, Baylor's Lache Seastrunk, and Arizona's Ka'Deem Carey as similar spread and/or rotational RBs.

Seastrunk and Carey are often lumped together using this logic, but some scouts think Sankey transcends being summarily pigeonholed. For instance, NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock ranked Sankey as his top RB earlier this month, and last week NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah made a comparison between his running style and Doug Martin's. "If you're going to run as your foundation offense, a three-wide, one-back spread-type offense, then you can play I believe with the Lache Seastrunks, maybe a Bishop Sankey, maybe a Ka'Deem Carey," said Cosell. "If you're going to line up with you know, 12 personnel, one back, two tight ends, or two backs and one tight end, I'm not sure those guys can do that for you on a consistent basis." At the NFL Combine, Sankey posted a 4.49 forty, 26 bench press reps, a 35.5 inch vertical and a 126 inch broad jump.

Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins possesses "impressive" size and movement, says NFL Films' Greg Cosell.

Seferian-Jenkins has got "a more complete skill set" than UNC's Eric Ebron, according to Cosell, due to his blocking ability. Seferian-Jenkins underwent surgery late last month to stabilize a stress fracture in his left foot and probably won't be ready to participate in Washington's pro day on April 2nd. Although ASJ didn't work out at the NFL Combine, he measured in at 6 foot 5 and 1/2 inch and 262 pounds. He also has 33 3/4 inch arms and an 80-inch wingspan.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah tweeted Washington RB Bishop Sankey's running style is reminiscent of Doug Martin's.

Sankey has "quick feet" and is "elusive in tight quarters," per Jeremiah. Rotoworld's Josh Norris thinks Martin was more physical than Sankey and could be first contact more frequently, but there are a group of evaluators that list Sankey near the top among prospects at his position, including Mike Mayock.

NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock lists Washington's Bishop Sankey as his top RB in the class.

Mayock's updated list of Top-5 running backs is rounded out, in order, by Ohio State's Carlos Hyde, LSU's Jeremy Hill, Boston College's Andre Williams, and Auburn's Tre Mason. The Washington Husky moved from Mayock's No. 3 spot up to No. 1 after the NFL Combine. Sankey posted a 4.49 forty, 26 bench press reps, a 35.5 inch vertical and 126 inch broad jump. Don't expect Sankey, or any running back, to crack the first-round in May.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang reports that Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins underwent surgery to stabilize a stress fracture in his left foot.

"After a consultation with agents, Todd France and Brian Ayrault of Five Star Athlete Management and family, Seferian-Jenkins opted for surgery to repair the issue," Rang wrote on Friday. The expected recovery for Seferian-Jenkins is approximately eight weeks, which most likely means he won't be participating in Washington's Pro Day on April 2nd.

Draft insider Tony Pauline reports that Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins is suffering from a fractured foot.

This explains why Seferian-Jenkins isn't working out at the NFL's Scouting Combine. Pauline adds that he's being told that Seferian-Jenkins will not be healthy for his pro day. Although ASJ didn't work out, he measured in at 6 foot 5 and 1/2 inch and 262 pounds in Indy. He also has 33 3/4 inch arms and an 80-inch wingspan.

NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock compared Washington RB Bishop Sankey to Cincinnati Bengals rookie Giovani Bernard.

"I want to see him catch the football. I don't get to see enough diversity of catches and routes off his tape. I think he can be a lot like the kid out of North Carolina (Bernard), if he can catch the football like that," Mayock said. Sankey rushed for 1,870 yards and 20 touchdowns on 327 carries in 2013. The Huskies' star received a third-round grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board. While he doesn't possess any elite attributes, Sankey shows receiving potential and runs with patience and vision.

Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins measured in at 6 foot 5 and 1/2 inch and 262 pounds at the NFL Combine.

Seferian-Jenkins also has 33 3/4 inch arms with an 80 inch wingspan. Rotoworld contributor Greg Peshek recently summarized ASJ's time at Washington, noting the limited yards after catch skill despite his utilization in those areas of the field. Seferian-Jenkins had the best drop rate of the five tight ends charted and he is a beast in the red zone.
Feb 20 - 11:39 AM

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that, from an evaluation perspective, Washington TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins leaves him wanting more.

Brugler did add that the "athletic and physical traits are there" for ASJ to succeed. Our own Josh Norris considers Seferian-Jenkins a top-40 talent at this point in the process, and he could flourish in an inline role while offering some versatility.

Keith Price tweeted last week that he feels "disrespected" that he wasn't invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.

"Feeling disrespected," Price wrote on the social networking site. "Note to self: Tune it out and keep your focus. #ambitious #positivevibes." Price (6-foot-1, 202 pounds) threw for 8,921 yards, 75 TDs and 30 interceptions, and completed 63.9 percent of his passes during three years as Washington's starting quarterback. He probably won't be drafted, but Price will undoubtedly be a priority free agent after the selection process.
