Chargers signed Washington State WR Dom Williams.

Williams (6'3/198) was a deep threat in Wazzu's vertical attack, finishing his career with 2,889 yards and 30 touchdowns on 192 catches (15.05 YPR). He was named honorable mention All-Pac 12 as a senior. Williams helped himself at his Pro Day, running 4.4-flat with a 40 1/2-inch vertical. Extremely drop prone in college, Williams may be worth trying at defensive back.

Lions selected Washington State OG Joe Dahl with the No. 151 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Dahl (6'4/304) took over as Wazzu's starting left guard as a sophomore before transitioning to left tackle as a junior and senior and earning second-team All-American honors in 2015. Concerns include Dahl's small hands (8 3/4") and short arms (32 3/4), but the latter metric matters less if Dahl kicks inside, as expected. Dahl's nasty play demeanor, toughness, and drive-blocking ability will all go to good use at guard, where he has NFL starting potential.

In the coming weeks, Washington State T Joe Dahl will visit or work out for the Jets, Patriots, Bucs, Eagles, 49ers, Chargers, Vikings, Panthers, Ravens and Colts.

Hat tip to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline for providing us Dahl's busy itinerary. The analyst reported, in addition, that his sources in the league now believe Dahl will go on Day 2 (Rds. 2-3). Dahl graded out as PFF's No. 1 pass-protecting tackle in each of the past two seasons. Some see him as a G.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline notes that "there’s a belief [Washington State T Joe Dahl] could land in the second day of the draft."

Dahl has been building momentum as the draft nears. To wit, NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt pegged him as one of his favorite players in this pool in late March. The 6-foot-4, 304-pounder has versatility in spades, having played center, tackle and both guard spots over the course of his collegiate career. He is a likely guard in the NFL, at least in Brandt's eyes. Steve Palazzolo of Pro Football Focus wants to see if he has the chops to stick on the outside. Over the last two seasons, Dahl graded out as PFF's No. 1 pass-protecting tackle.

Washington State graduate T Logan Tuley-Tillman was sentenced to two years' probation for filming sex acts with a woman without her consent.

Tuley-Tillman was initially charged with three felonies in relation to the September incident in which he used a woman's cell phone (unknown to her at the time) to record a sex act. The woman reportedly told police that the act itself was consensual, though the filming clearly was not. The whole unfortunate ball of wax resulted in Tuley-Tillman's dismissal from Michigan in September. He transferred to Washington State in January and subsequently pleaded guilty to two felony counts (one count of capturing/distributing an image of an unclothed person and one count of using a computer to commit a crime). Sentencing occurred on Monday and resulted in two years of probation.

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt called Washington State T Joe Dahl "one of [his] favorites in this draft."

One reason Brandt's keen on Dahl--he likes student-athletes who transfer up from the lower levels. In this case, the 6-foot-4, 304-pounder transferred from Montana to Washington State following the close of his freshman season in 2012. Wrote Brandt, "He could play multiple positions at the next level, including center, but I think guard is his best position." To that point, Dahl played both left and right guards in college. The NFL analyst concluded that "[s]ome team will draft him in the second round; others will wish they had."

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt believes that Washington State LB Kache Palacio could be a "potential priority free agent after the draft."

At the Cougar pro day, Palacio logged 40-yard dash times of 4.78 and 4.81 seconds. He also notched a 34-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-11 broad jump. Last season, the 6-foot-2, 231-pounder recorded 33 tackles (11 for loss), six sacks and three forced fumbles. He also worked out at fullback on pro day, so NFL teams have that to consider, too, as he looks to break into the pros.

At Washington State's pro day on Thursday, WR Dom Williams was "described as looking pretty good catching the ball," according to NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt.

Williams (who was not among the invites to the NFL Scouting Combine) logged 40-yard dash times of 4.39 and 4.41 seconds on Thursday. The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder also showcased fantastic jumping ability, bounding his way to a 40.5-inch vertical and 10-foot-5 broad. Brandt believes he "has a chance to be selected" in this spring's draft, but CBS Sports' Rob Rang noted in late January that Williams' drop tendencies could prove to be worrisome.

Washington State junior CB Calvin Green was arrested for a suspected hit-and-run on Sunday.

Green was arrested Sunday morning and charged with a hit-and-run, not having a valid driver's license and reckless endangerment. Per Pullman Police Operations Commander Chris Tennant, the 5-foot-10, 175-pounder backed his Ford Focus into a Dodge Neon at approximately 1:55 a.m. Sunday morning. Tennant explained to the Seattle Times that the driver of the Neon attempted to exchange insurance information with Green, but he drove off, parked in an alley and turned his lights off. When she moved to confront him, he allegedly backed out and forced her to jump out of the way (though not before she managed to log his license plate tag). The arresting officer indicated that they smelled alcohol on Green's breath. He passed a field sobriety test, though. Stay tuned to see what possible discipline is applied by the team.

Washington State T Joe Dahl was comped to Green Bay's David Bakhtiari by wrote Steve Palazzolo of College Football Focus "as a potential plus pass-blocker who struggles with power in both the running and passing games."

Dahl ran a nice 5.18 forty and chipped in a robust 28 bench reps. Would you believe that Dahl was PFF's No. 1 pass-protecting tackle in each of the past two seasons? "Dahl’s slight size and short arms have the NFL envisioning a move inside to guard for him, but we’re hoping to see him stick outside at tackle," wrote Palazzolo. "He’s not a force in the run game, and he was susceptible to bull rushes on the edge, so his smooth-moving skill-set fits best on the outside, even with the issues against power."

CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang noted that when he watches tape on Washington State WR Dom Williams, he "sees a lot of drops."

"You have to throw out the numbers given how much WSU throws the ball," Rang said, "and just watch the film and you see a lot of drops." Said numbers Rang's asking us to throw out: 75 catches for 1,040 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2015. The analyst likes the speed element demonstrated by the 6-foot-2, 190-pound prospect, but doesn't believe that alone is enough to elevate him above similar receivers in the draft. Rang's not confident that the now-former Cougar will be drafted, though it's possible that Williams sneaks into the later rounds. He'll be suiting up for the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl on Saturday.
Jan 22 - 9:38 PM

CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang indicated that "there’s a belief out [in the scouting community] that [Washington State senior DT Destiny Vaeao] has a lot of untapped potential."

Noted Rang, "[Vaeao]’s learning to use his hands better, he locates the football well and plays hard." The draft analyst also called the 6-foot-3, 300-plus-pound prospect a "naturally powerful" lineman who would fit in either a 4-3 or 3-4 scheme. In 2015, he logged 40 tackles (12 for loss) with 4.5 sacks and a forced fumble. Rang told the Seattle Times he sees Vaeao as a potential fourth or fifth-round selection in this spring's draft. First up, though, an appearance in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl on Saturday.

Washington State sophomore RB Jamal Morrow was arrested on Saturday for driving under the influence.

Morrow was pulled over for driving the wrong way down a one-way street. He blew over double the legal limit. Morrow was "very cooperative and respectful during the process," according to the arresting officer. The sophomore is a team leader, having been voted captain in nine of his 12 games this past season. He earned three starts and had 347 rushing yards, 294 receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns. WSU spokesman Bill Stevens declined comment.

Former Michigan T Logan Tuley-Tillman transferred to Washington State.

Tuley-Tillman was dismissed from Michigan in September after he was charged with three felonies in relation to filming a sex act with an unknowing woman. To be clear, those charges remain. The 6-foot-7, 309-pound graduate was only allowed to leave the state of Michigan with a GPS tracker. A pretrial hearing's scheduled for February 8. Should his legal issues resolve before the start of the season, he'll be eligible to play immediately as a grad transfer.

Washington State senior WR Dom Williams accepted an invitation to the NFLPA Bowl.

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound senior became a favorite of QB Luke Falk this fall with Vince Mayle out of the picture, finishing with a nice 75-1,040-11 line. Williams is a "smallish receiver who could slide into the late rounds based on his return skills," TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline wrote over the summer.
