Wisconsin edge rusher T.J. Watt told media members at least one team asked him about a possible switch to ILB.

Watt projects as an edge rusher in practically any lineup thanks to his 6-foot-4, 252-pound frame and outstanding athleticism (94th percentile). Watt checks off so many boxes in terms of NFL evaluations, and you can certainly expect evaluators who want to draft him will use a "bloodlines" pitch in the draft room. Watt will be a first round pick, the only question is how early. The insider linebacker class lacks talent throughout, so the transition might be possible.

That would make some great change.... could be very dangerous or a liability. But I'd gamble on that switch if.

Mike Williams runs a 4.49 / four-five-flat 40.

Clemson is known to have a fast track though:

Montana RB Joey Counts had a 44-inch vertical at his pro day. That would've tied the best mark at this year's combine (Obi Melifonwu). He also ran a 4.48 and had 27 bench reps. He's been arrested twice already, however: http://mtstandard.com/sports/college/big-sky-conference/university-of-montana/um-s-counts-arrested-for-dui/article_0cb205a7-21d4-56c0-af99-da82b115366d.html

His teammate, S Yamen Sanders, also had a great vert of 41 inches and ran a 4.56. He only played the 1 year there after transferring from Arizona. He's got some intriguing attributes IMO. Also, when I watched him and saw him without a helmet he kind of looks like Aldon Smith in the face with a slight bit of Vernon Davis in there.

Mike Williams - WR - Tigers

Clemson WR Mike Williams clocked 40-yard dash times of 4.58 and 4.56 seconds at the Tigers' pro day on Thursday.

These were heavily anticipated runs, as Williams chose not to run the 40 at the NFL Scouting Combine earlier this month. His result is right on the cut line of acceptability. Prior to it, NFL.com's Bucky Brooks said a forty of 4.55 or better was what scouts wanted to see from Williams. Williams' Thursday performance shouldn't push him out of the first round. Recent NFL.com mock drafts have his projected range of outcomes from No. 10 (Bills) to No. 30 (Steelers).

How is this a 44 inch vertical? Something is wrong here.

That looks legit to me! The only problem is that she shouldn't have gotten credit for the last pin thing because he didn't fully tilt it to a full 50% rotation.

No way. Maybe this is the worst angle possible but I don't even feel he got to the trainer's waist.

His hands where just past the small white tape strip on the pole to start so it looks pretty close to 44"

Rashan Gary played high school football only a couple miles away from where I live. Peppers as well. Gary dominated in high school, but as we all know DTs who excel and dominate in HS have a history of not being as good in the pros. They're hard to project coming out of high school. In any case, if you saw Gary played you'd be amazed. He was even man handling fellow elite offensive lineman during the all-American practices and game.

Deshaun Watson - QB - Tigers

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline hears from multiple sources that Clemson QB Deshaun Watson's struggles with "accuracy and timing on the deep outs and out to the flanks" will be problematic for the NFL.

"A longtime friend affiliated with Clemson told me Watson struggles throwing to his left," Pauline wrote, "and it showed [during Thursday's pro day]." One scout referred to the quarterbacks's showing as a "B-minus/C-plus type workout." Watson was a consensus winner in his throwing drills at the Combine, but Thursday's performance does not appear to have done much to build on those early strong reviews.

I think the world has forgotten about Raekwon McMilan. I didn't buy the first-round hype he was getting a while back, but if the Niners can get him in the 3rd, that would be a pretty great pick IMO.

Dalvin Cook - RB - Seminoles

Florida State RB Dalvin Cook is visiting the Eagles, according to Mike Garafolo.

The Eagles added multiple receivers in free agency, albeit on shorter deals. However, the team failed to add a running back, seemingly by choice, and they will certainly select one in the upcoming draft. As of now, Cook's tape is first round but his athletic profile is not. Since 1999, a running back has not been selected in the first round with a composite score (9th percentile) like Cook's. That could change after Florida State's pro day.
