Western Michigan WR Corey Davis (ankle) went through a workout with veteran WR coach Jerry Sullivan on Friday, who relayed to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that Davis "didn't have any limp."

Davis has mostly been a been bystander during the draft process due to a minor ankle surgery he underwent in February. Sullivan told Rapoport that in Friday's workout, "I thought he was very explosive, even on his foot. Remember, he hasn't really done much in three and a half months." Sullivan additionally said that Davis is probably about 75% of the way back to full health. There has been talk of the 6-foot-3, 215-pounder slipping to Round 2, but we think he still has a solid chance of landing on Day 1 next Thursday, when he will jostle with Mike Williams and John Ross for the privilege of being the first receiver off the board.

Western Michigan EDGE/LB Keion Adams was put through a private workout by the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday.

Adams has also reportedly either met or worked out with the Steelers, Chargers 49ers and Colts over the past few weeks. The 6-foot-3, 229-pounder will likely hear his name called on Day 3 of the draft next Saturday. NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Adams to Steelers OLB Arthur Moates and writes that the Western Michigan standout "will have to prove he can set a strong edge and hold his ground at the point of attack if he wants to become anything more than a situational rusher."

One NFL executive believes that Western Michigan WR Corey Davis might slide to the second round.

"I like Corey Davis as a player, but he's been out of sight, out of my mind in the spring," the executive said, adding that "[t]he fact that he won't run a 40 isn't a huge deal but it could impact the thinking of some teams around the league." We have heard these kinds of rumblings over the past few weeks. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder has been largely unable to participate in the pre-draft process due to a minor ankle surgery he underwent in February. Davis was mocked in the top-10 during some industry exercises this winter, though, and could end up being one of the steals of the draft if he does, indeed, take a little tumble.

An area scout for an NFC team said that Western Michigan OL Taylor Moton "was a little rough at tackle this year but that isn't his spot."

The scout in question might not see Moton as a tackle, but he is a big fan of the 6-foot-5, 319-pounder's previous work inside. "Big and strong as a guard. He was moving guys from Ohio State around like it was nothing," the evaluator said. Pro Football Focus, too, sees his snuggest NFL fit coming at guard rather than tackle.

Western Michigan WR Corey Davis (ankle) is among the prospects who've been invited to medical rechecks in Indianapolis later this week.

Davis is recovering from minor ankle surgery. The group joining him in Indy to meet with doctors includes Washington WR John Ross, Western Michigan WR Corey Davis, UCLA DE Takkarist McKinley, Michigan TE Jake Butt, Alabama LB Reuben Foster and Wisconsin T Ryan Ramczyk.

Western Michigan EDGE/LB Keion Adams will visit the Steelers on Wednesday.

As Rotoworld's Josh Norris termed it, Adams is a lesser Haason Reddick who will be drafted on day three. He has bend and athleticism when rushing the passer, but also has examples of dropping into coverage.

Western Michigan WR Corey Davis is visiting the Browns on Tuesday, according to Ian Rapoport.

This is just the second reported visit for Davis thus far in the process, a wide receiver many believe is the top prospect at his position. Davis is recovering from minor ankle surgery and might not workout for teams prior to the draft. He previously visited the Eagles.
Apr 4 - 9:39 AM

Rotoworld's Josh Norris believes NFL teams could view Western Michigan's Keion Adams as a lesser Haason Reddick.

Reddick will be a top 25 selection, so teams who miss out on selecting him might see Adams as a similar linebacker with bend who can also rush the passer. Adams spent most of his time on the edge and was very successful, but his body type profiles as a more traditional linebacker. He'll likely be a fifth through seventh round pick.
Mar 30 - 11:52 AM

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.
Mar 18 - 1:21 PM

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.
