Several second-day prospects are working out today, as well as a few late-round sleepers. Let’s start off with a few final notes from yesterday.

UCLA

I’ll stay away from the Josh Rosen coverage, as everyone has been all over it, but will I will mention the Bruins' second-rated prospect, offensive tackle Kolton Miller.

Miller stood on his combine numbers but looked very athletic during position drills. He’s a long, lean tackle who moved well about the field. I was surprised to find out that many teams feel he’ll stay at left tackle in the NFL, as I’ve always viewed Miller as a right tackle prospect. Scouts love his upside and feel he has the agility to stay on the blind side. 

Miller met with the Seattle Seahawks, Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons at USC's pro day. He will be working out for the San Francisco 49ers in the coming days and has an official visit set with the Dallas Cowboys.

Grand Valley State

Twelve teams were on hand for GVSU's pro day. Receiver Brandon Bean and tight end Nick Keizer were the highlights.

Bean, graded as a free-agent prospect before the season, measured 6005 (though he’s been measured at 6-foot-1.5 in the past) and 212 pounds. He timed in the low 4.6s in the 40, 4.25 in the short shuttle and 6.9 in the three-cone. His vertical jump was 35.5 inches. Teams like Bean’s special-teams potential as much as his receiving ability.

Bean met with the Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions and Denver Broncos.

Keizer was not rated coming into the season but gained momentum late in the campaign. He finished the year with 29 receptions for 504 yards and nine TDs.

Keizer came in at 6-foot-5 and 255 pounds, timed in the mid-to-high 4.7s, completed 28 reps on the bench press and reached 10-foot-2 in the broad jump. He met with the Indianapolis Colts and Los Angeles Chargers.

Also working out was one-time Iowa linebacker Reggie Spearman.

Someone who looked like a potentially good prospect early in his Hawkeye career, Spearman ran afoul and moved from Iowa to Illinois State before eventually landing in GVSU. I don’t have any numbers but was told he looked good in drills.

Notes:  

Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn, defensive coordinator Marquand Manuel and general manager Thomas Dimitroff were in Boulder earlier this week to work out CU defensive backs Isaiah Oliver and Afolabi Laguda.

The Georgia Tech workout is underway. Receiver Ricky Jeune measured 6020 and 214 pounds, completed 15 reps on the bench, touched 36 inches in the vertical jump and timed between 4.52 and 4.56 in the 40.
