Western Michigan EDGE/LB Keion Adams met with the Cardinals, Falcons, Ravens, Bengals, Lions, Browns, Jets and 49ers at his pro day workout.

In addition, Rotoworld's Josh Norris reported last week that Adams is scheduled to visit the Chargers and Colts in April. The 6-foot-1, 245-pounder may have to shift to linebacker in the pros after playing off the edge for the Broncos.

Western Michigan WR Corey Davis fell out of the first round in Peter Schrager's latest mock draft.

It is noteworthy, as two other receivers went in the first round (Mike Williams and John Ross) with the second at pick No. 32. Davis went off the board at No. 34 to the 49ers, and we think that would be a steal. Davis is our top ranked receiver in the draft, but he is working back from a minor procedure on his ankle and might not be able to workout for teams in the NFL. Davis is dominant after the catch.

Western Michigan EDGE/LB Keion Adams has visits scheduled with the Chargers and the Colts.

Adams played on the edge as a pass rusher for the Broncos, but his NFL transition will likely be off the ball, and possibly even to inside linebacker. Adams participated in the NFLPA game.

Western Michigan WR Corey Davis visited the Eagles on Friday.

Davis is still recovering from a minor ankle surgery, which kept him out of the school's pro day. As of now it is unknown if Davis will work out prior to the draft. Davis is a highly productive receiver who can dominate after the catch and put every route on tape for evaluators to see. He is out top-ranked receiver.

Pro Football Focus notes that Western Michigan OL Taylor Moton "has the strength and athletic ability" to succeed in any scheme.

The PFF analysis team believes that Moton's best NFL fit will come at guard. "There are some concerns as can improve his pass protection against skilled rushers, but a move to guard can protect him in that regard," writes the outlet. The Bengals and Panthers both reportedly spent a fair amount of time talking with Moton on pro day. Scouts Inc. saw him as a "winner" coming out of the Combine.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that Western Michigan WR Michael Henry "looked very good catching the ball [on pro day]."

"A sleeper who took a back seat to [Corey] Davis the past two seasons," Pauline writes, "Henry was fast and showed natural hands throughout the morning." Working in Davis' shadow this past season, Henry logged a receiving line of 63-779-4. His game is that of a possession receiver. He could potentially garner some interest late on Day 3.

Western Michigan QB Zach Terrell has a workout set up with the Detroit Lions.

At the Broncos' pro day event this week, Terrell measured in at 6-foot-1 and 212 pounds. He locked a 4.97s 40, a 7.36s three-cone and a 4.34s short shuttle. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reported that Terrell has worked with quarterback coach Terry Shea to improve his footwork and shorten his throwing motion. How did the new-look thrower acquit himself for scouts? "Terrell drove deep passes down field and displayed good velocity on the intermediate routes," Pauline wrote.

Western Michigan defensive end/outside linebacker Keion Adams timed a 4.71s forty at his pro day workout.

Adams "turned in a solid workout," according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline, who mentioned that the prospect "entered the season graded as a mid-round pick by scouts." The New York Jets, Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns all spent time with him at the event. The 6-foot-1, 245-pounder did 27 reps on the bench, touched 36 inches in the vertical jump and completed a 10-foot-4 broad jump. Adams earned Second Team All-MAC honors last season after posting 17 TFL with 7.5 sacks and three forced fumbles.

Carolina Panthers offensive line coach Ray Brown spent "extensive time" with Western Michigan OL Taylor Moton following WMU's pro day event this week, reports Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline

Per Pauline, the Cincinnati Bengals' offensive line coach and director of player personnel also both spent "an enormous amount of time" with Moton. "[T]hose on hand believe the big blocker could be the team’s replacement for Kevin Zeitler," Pauline wrote. Zeitler, of course, just signed a big free agent deal with the Cleveland Browns. The Detroit Lions' staff put Moton through his position drills at the pro day workout.

Western Michigan WR Corey Davis will not workout at the school's pro day on Wednesday while recovering from ankle surgery.

Adam Schefter previously reported Davis' ankle surgery was "extremely minor," however, it held him out of the NFL Combine. Davis and Mike Williams, the two presumed top receivers in this class, have not worked out yet, and there is no date for Davis to hold a personal pro day at this time. Mike Williams should be able to go during Clemson's pro day.

An assistant AFC offensive line coach told NFL Media's Lance Zierlein that Western Michigan OL Taylor Moton "looks like an NFL starter is supposed to look."

"I like him in interviews. I like the tape, too. I don't know if he's a tackle or a guard yet because I have to study him more, but he's really strong," the coach said. As to that positional question, Zierlein believes that the 6-foot-5, 319-pounder likely projects as a right guard, but could fill in at right tackle if injury strikes. Scouts Inc. tagged Moton as one of the Combine's winners after he turned in a 30.5-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-1 broad jump. Those marks ranked third- and sixth-best among offensive lineman. His run through the short shuttle at 4.58 seconds tied for fourth-best.

Packers beat writer Bob McGinn spoke to one NFL scout who drew comparables between Western Michigan WR Corey Davis and Jordan Matthews.

Take a lap. We consider Davis a superior prospect to Matthews, who is solely a slot receiver with drop issues. Davis is around the same size, but there are plenty of examples where he wins from the outside and downfield, and absolutely shines after the catch. McGinn spoke to a different scout who had many more positive things to say "He’s more fluid than Michael Irvin was," the evaluator said. "Works hard. Loves football. Smart (31 on the Wonderlic intelligence test)."
Mar 7 - 8:57 AM

Scouts Inc. calls Western Michigan OL Taylor Moton one of the NFL Combine's big early winners.

The 6-foot-5, 319-pounder posted the third-best vertical (30.5 inches) and sixth-best broad jump (9-foot-1) of all the offensive linemen. His 4.58-second short shuttle tied for fourth. Heck, Moton's maligned arms grew a full inch in wing span from the Senior Bowl, checking in at 34 1/8-inches. "Plus, he moved like a right tackle prospect during the position drills," Scouts Inc. wrote. "While he's arguably still a better fit at guard, where he projects as a starter early in his career, Moton is showing teams that he can at least provide depth at right tackle and potentially develop into an effective starter there."

Western Michigan WR Corey Davis (ankle) will not run the 40-yard dash at WMU's pro day on March 15.

Davis underwent what was reported to be minor ankle surgery back in early February after injuring it while training. "Minor," of course, is a relative term. The 6-foot-3, 213-pounder was already ruled out as a potential runner for the NFL Scouting Combine. Scratch pro day, too, now. Rotoworld's Josh Norris views Davis as the No. 1 wideout in this class. It is not yet clear how his lack of showing in workouts will affect his stock (if it affects it at all), but given that he is working with agent to set up a workout for interested squads down the road, this could just be a minor speed bump.
Mar 3 - 4:08 PM

Western Michigan senior LB Robert Spillane will transfer.

We aren't sure if the true senior has graduated yet. If so, he'd be eligible to play immediately at another FBS program. Spillane led the Broncos with 111 tackles last year. He added 10.5 TFL, three sacks and three interceptions.
