Mike Hass/WR/Oregon State

- He has talked to a lot of teams, but isn't sensing that one is more interested than another.


Jay Cutler/QB/Vanderbilt

- Measured in a 6-3 and 226 pounds.

- He's a bit disappointed that the other top quarterbacks aren't working out. When asked if he was concerned that he could hurt his stock by performing here, he said no, and added with a smile, "It's just throwing."

- Thinks based on what he's hearing, the NFL is looking for more pocket passers than mobile quarterbacks.

- Will be in New York on Draft Day if invited.
