The pace heated up as teams reached out to more players for interviews on Tuesday, especially during the evening at the players' hotel. Scout.com has been able to confirm that the following players had meetings or conversations with representatives from NFL clubs, in addition to those already mentioned in our Tuesday Morning Insider Notes and our Monday Insider Notes.
LB Zack Follett (California): Seahawks, Colts, Chargers. Follett, Cal's weakside linebacker, mentioned that he had the opportunity to meet with Chargers defensive coordinator Ron Rivera on Tuesday. He had previously drawn interest this week from the Patriots, Dolphins, Cowboys, Saints and Packers.
RB Rashad Jennings (Liberty): The Seahawks, Bengals and Browns are showing the most interest so far. But the Vikings, Panthers, Jets, Chargers and Broncos have also been talking to him.
DE/TE Connor Barwin (Cincinnati): Add the Dolphins to his list of suitors, along with the Patriots, Panthers and Bengals who had met with him earlier in the week. Barwin is being scouted at both positions, but even he believes that it's more likely that he'll play defensive end due to his pass rush skills.
C Alex Mack (California): Mack is getting high marks for his alert, aggressive play in Mobile to cap off an outstanding college career. One of 15 players nationally who were honored with a Draddy Award for academic success, football performance and community service, Mack has already graduated with a 3.61 GPA in Legal Studies. The Patriots, Vikings, Dolphins and the Colts were among the teams he met with on Tuesday.
S Chip Vaughn (Wake Forest): Vaughn had meetings with the Redskins, Bears, Dolphins, Texans, Chiefs, and spoke with the Browns following Tuesday's practice. He had previously heard from the Broncos, Seahawks, and Vikings.
DE Ron Brace (Boston College): Add the Colts to his list of interested teams, even though he's far from their typical tight end. At 6-foot-3 and 329 pounds, Brace isn't a Dwight Freeney or Robert Mathis. But he could add an assertive presence on rushing downs, or move inside to beef-up the Colts' defensive interior. He's already talked with the 49ers, Buccaneers, Chargers, Saints, Panthers, Packers, Cowboys and the Dolphins.
