  • The Cleveland Browns are aggressively evaluating new talent. They've talked with Auburn running back Ben Tate, Ole Miss wide receiver Shay Hodge, Iowa linebacker A.J. Edds, Alabama kicker Leigh Tiffin, North Carolina State offensive lineman Ted Larsen, Utah offensive lineman Zane Beadles, Wake Forest cornerback Brandon Ghee, Maryland safety Terrell Skinner, Troy linebacker Cameron Sheffield, and West Virginia quarterback Jarrett Brown. The Eagles also talked with Brown and Hodge, and have talked with Idaho offensive lineman Mike Iupati. All three players have been standouts at their positions so far this week. Sheffield has also drawn interest from the Ravens and the Patriots this week.

  • The Jacksonville Jaguars drafted a pair of offensive tackles with their first two picks in the 2009 NFL Draft. However, they may not be done retooling their offensive line. They're showing some interest in Baylor center J.D. Walton.

  • Tennessee long-snapper Morgan Cox has drawn some attention from the Chiefs.

Prior to the practice, a scout from the New York Giants was anxious to see how Dodge was going to perform since winds conditions were typical of those on a typical Sunday in New York during the regular season. The East Carolina kicker showed that he has a big foot that can produce some eye-popping punts, but he was also inconsistent at times, booting some wobbly balls.

  • Tulane wide receiver Jeremy Williams told one of our writers that he had a great interview with the Patriots this week. He's also talked with the Chargers.

  • Ole Miss offensive lineman John Jerry had a lengthy discussion with the Baltimore Ravens on Tuesday. Michigan State kicker Brett Swenson has also drawn some interest from Baltimore.
