Wyoming WR Robert Herron's visit with the Saints, which began Wednesday, will bleed into Thursday.

Drew Brees will appreciate the wheels on this burner. Herron recorded a low 4.3 forty sprint at his pro day workout, proving what most already knew: He can take the top off any defense. He's also a nice fit for New Orleans in that he's extremely difficult to jam at the line against man coverage.

The Panthers worked out Wyoming DB Marqueston Huff on Wednesday morning, per NFL.com's Gil Brandt.

Huff is a versatile defensive back with experience at both safety and corner. The Panthers certainly need depth at both spots after losing Mike Mitchell and Captain Munnerlyn to free agency. He should be a third day selection.
Apr 2 - 12:29 PM

Wyoming QB Brett Smith will make an official visit to the Panthers.

Smith also has another visit lined up but could not reveal the team. The Wyoming product was snubbed from the Combine, likely due to his surprising entry in the draft. The Panthers were fond of Russell Wilson in 2012 and will likely be searching for a long term backup behind Cam Newton.

Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay believes Wyoming QB Brett Smith "is not very good" and understands why he was not at the NFL Combine.

"I've done four games of him, it makes total sense why he was not there," McShay said of Smith. "It would be unfair to the other quarterbacks if Brett Smith" was at the Combine. On the same podcast, ESPN's Mel Kiper called Smith draftable. The Wyoming passer has earned some comparisons to Johnny Manziel for his improvisational style, but while Manziel is a bit more fluid, Smith seems a bit more robotic with his movements.

Patriots staff members worked out Wyoming WR Robert Herron 1-on-1 after the school's pro day.

After running a 4.48 forty at the NFL Combine, Herron recorded a low 4.3 second sprint at the pro day workout. This fits the slot receiver's game more, but the big difference is a bit questionable. Herron could draw a third-round pick. He is extremely slippery at the line of scrimmage against press man coverage.
Mar 15 - 11:42 AM

Wyoming QB Brett Smith measured in a 6-foot-1 and 3/4 of an inch at the school's pro day.

Smith also had 10 inch hands, recorded an "official" 4.51 forty, and a broad jump of 10-foot-8. The Wyoming passer will draw comparisons to Johnny Manziel, although his movements are a bit more robotic than Manziel's improvisational style. Smith was notoriously known as a great athlete while in school and he should have been invited to the Combine.
Mar 13 - 3:28 PM

NFL.com's Mike Huguenin believes Wyoming WR Robert Herron "might be the fastest receiver at the combine."

"Expect a sub-4.4 40 time," wrote Huguenin. "He should test well in the other events, too." Herron was hugely productive at Wyoming, forming one of the nation's most underrated aerial duos with QB Brett Smith. Yes, Herron is undersized, but we've been on his bandwagon since the summer. He's got serious wheels and sticky hands. Draft insider Tony Pauline compared Herron to Don Beebe in the fall.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler considers Wyoming junior QB Brett Smith to be the biggest snub of the NFL Combine.

To round out his list of Top-5 snubs, Brugler mentioned USC LB Morgan Breslin, USF ILB DeDe Lattimore, Michigan State LB/S Denicos Allen and Stanford OG Kevin Danser. Smith declared for the draft after his junior season, and that looks to be a mistake. While he has obvious talent -- including good mobility and Johnny Manziel-esque creativity -- Smith isn't pro-ready at the moment. Hopefully for the prospect, some team will take a late flier and give him a few years to develop at the end of the bench.
Feb 5 - 7:49 PM

Wyoming junior QB Brett Smith did not receive an invitation to the NFL Combine, according to Murphy McGuire.

Smith declared for the draft after his junior season, and while some like his mobile style and see talent, the selection committee does not seem to agree. Smith has a bit of a Johnny Manziel-like play style, but not receiving an invitation to the Combine is not a good sign. Obviously many prospects succeed who are not in Indianapolis, although we are surprised by the news.
Feb 3 - 2:11 PM

Wyoming junior QB Brett Smith declared for the 2014 NFL Draft.

The Wyoming football program is undergoing a bit of change with the firing of Dave Christensen, now Utah's offensive coordinator, and the hiring of North Dakota State's Craig Bohl. Smith is a very intriguing talent, utilizing a combination of mobility and quick release. It might sound crazy now, but we wouldn't be surprised if some teams rank Smith over Johnny Manziel.

Wyoming senior FS Marqueston Huff accepted an invite to the Reese's Senior Bowl game.

The Cowboys fielded an awful defense this season, but that wasn't Huff's fault. One of the most productive defensive backs you've never heard of, the 6-foot, 190-pound safety recorded 127 tackles and two interceptions in 12 games this season. The former cornerback, who went to high school with LaMichael James, should be a third-day draft pick.

Wyoming hired North Dakota State head coach Craig Bohl to the same position.

The news broke last Sunday. Bohl will be allowed to finish out the season as Bisons' head coach. NDSU, which has won the past two FCS titles, meets New Hampshire on Friday in a semifinal game. "Quite frankly, guys, I knew this day was coming," NDSU athletic director Gene Taylor said earlier this month. "I know a lot of people are questioning the timing of it. There's never a good time. But when you look at obviously the dollars that they are going to commit to him and his assistant coaches, whoever those may be ... It's a step up."

Wyoming senior FS Marqueston Huff garnered an invite to the East-West Shrine game.

Huff is one of the most productive defensive backs you've never heard of. The 6-foot-0, 190-pound safety already has 108 tackles this season. The former cornerback, who went to high school with LaMichael James, should be a third-day draft pick.

Wyoming WR Robert Herron will attend the Senior Bowl.

Former teammate Tashaun Gipson broke the news on twitter. Herron has produced at a high rate at Wyoming over the years, especially with Brett Smith emerging as a solid quarterback prospect. Herron has tremendous speed and could really shine in Mobile.

Wyoming junior QB Brett Smith completed 21 of 36 attempts for 246 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in a 52-22 loss to Colorado State.

Smith is one of the lesser known top quarterbacks in all of college football. We doubt that changes this year, but could heading into his senior season in 2014. Smith loves to move in the pocket and throws from multiple angles.
