NFL Draft Rumors: Luck, Jeffery, Adams, Upshaw, RGIII, Richardson, Osweiler

Andrew Luck

Stanford QB Andrew Luck measured at 6’4″ and 238 pounds at the Combine, via NFL.com. On top of that, Luck will not participate in throwing drills over the weekend.

The Colts can actually sign luck today if they wanted to but considering that they have a big decision on the horizon regarding Peyton Manning‘s future status with the team, it’s probably a good idea to hold off on that.

 

Alshon Jeffery

South Carolina WR Alshon Jeffery was measured at 6-foot-3 1/8 and 216 pounds today at the NFL Scouting Combine.

This noteworthy because Jeffery had been reported to be overweight and as much as 230 pounds just a few weeks ago. There’s been a lot made about Jeffery’s conditioning so a solid forty-time could vault him into the second half of the first-round.

 

Mike Adams

The Akron Beacon Journal reports that both Browns and Redskins have met with Ohio State LT Mike Adams.

Adams has really improved his draft stock in recent weeks with a very solid showing at this year’s Senior Bowl. He figures to be a late first-round pick at this point in time.

 

Courtney Upshaw

Tony Pauline of DraftInsider.net reports that the Jaguars and Bills both have shown interest in the Alabama OLB Courtney Upshaw.

Both team’s figure to be in need of upgrades to the defensive end position and Upshaw has the ability to play both OLB as well as DE but you would have to think that they would give strong consideration to him at #7 and #10 respectively.

 

Robert Griffin III

Baylor QB Robert Griffin III reportedly measured 6’2 3/8″ at the Combine today.

This is great news as a lot had been made about his height in recent days. Some suspected that he may come in under his 6’2 list height but that wasn’t the case. Griffin appears to be a lock to go no later than #2 overall in the upcoming draft.

 

Trent Richardson

Mike Mayock mentioned that Alabama RB Trent Richardson is the best running back prospect he’s seen since Adrian Peterson back in 2007.

His size-speed ratio is great,” Mayock said. “He’s got tremendous feet for his size, really good balance and good vision.

Unfortunately for him, Richardson suffered a knee injury recently and will not be participating in on-the-field drills over the weekend. This shouldn’t have a huge impact on his overall draft status considering that the injury isn’t believed to be serious.

 

Brock Osweiler

Rob Rang of CBS Sports reports that Arizona State QB Brock Osweiler measured in at 6-foot-6 7/8 and 242 pounds which is two inches shorter than his listed size was in college.

Rang actually mentions that this could improve his draft stock as there was some question as to whether or not his height could be an issue for him.
