University of Dayton TE Adam Trautman is 'drawing rave reviews from scouts and poised for a big week' at the Senior Bowl, according to Pro Football Network's Tony Pauline, who adds that several teams already grade Trautman as the top tight end from the senior class and have stamped him with a second-round draft grade.
|Footballguys view: Trautman is one of the players to watch at the Senior Bowl. Fantasy GMs need to get familiar with his name. Trautman can make plays with his size/athleticism combination and could develop into a fine pro weapon.|

California S Ashtyn Davis (undisclosed) will not play in the Senior Bowl because he underwent an undisclosed surgery after the college football season, according to a source. He is still meeting with teams in Mobile this week.
|Footballguys view: Bad news for scouts at the Senior Bowl. Davis is considered the best senior safety in the country and is second in rankings only to LSU's Grant Delpit. In college at Cal, Davis showed tremendous athleticism and toughness while also playing with high football intelligence.|

NFL | Gabriel Davis enters draft Sat Jan 18, 09:44 PM
Central Florida WR Gabriel Davis announced that he forgo his final year of eligibility and enter the 2020 NFL Draft.
|Footballguys view: Davis is a receiver who can get vertical with long strides and does a good job of tracking passes over his shoulder. He was a huge part of UCF's offense and will now make the leap to the pros -- likely as a mid-round pick. He caught 72 passes for 1,241 yards and 12 touchdowns in the 2019 season.|
NFL | Dalton Keene declares for draft Sat Jan 18, 08:40 PM
Virginia Tech TE Dalton X. Keene has declared for the 2020 NFL Draft.
|Footballguys view: Keene was a quarterback and running back in high school for the Chatfield Chargers in Littleton, CO. He went to Virginia Tech and was converted to a tight end/H-back for the Hokies. His father played in the NFL and Keene has always shown incredible strength and determination with the ball in his hands (see his 3-touchdown game against the Miami Hurricanes in 2019). He'll be an intriguing prospect because of his versatility.|
NFL | Kyle Markway headed to NFL Sat Jan 18, 08:34 PM
South Carolina TE Kyle Markway announced he will forgo his final year of eligibility and enter the 2020 NFL Draft.
|Footballguys view: Medical checks will be huge for Markway as he missed two seasons due to injury. He should be a late-round pick or priority free agent.|
NFL | Quez Watkins turning pro Sat Jan 18, 08:30 PM
Southern Miss WR Quez Watkins announced that he will enter the 2020 NFL Draft, skipping his senior season.
|Footballguys view: Watkins has a multi-faceted game as he can run routes close to the quarterback or he can get deep as evidenced by his 18.6 yards per catch in 2019. He is likely to be a late-round pick in the 2020 NFL draft.|
NFL | Jalen Reagor enters draft Sat Jan 18, 08:25 PM
TCU WR Jalen Reagor announced that he will skip his final season of eligibility and enter the 2020 NFL Draft.
|Footballguys view: Reagor is one of the best players in this draft class -- and a WR class that is considered arguably the best in NFL history. He's got shades of DeAndre Hopkins to his game and plays with great concentration and body control. Reagor is likely to be a first-round pick and there is buzz the Broncos are highly interested in him at No.15 overall.|

NFL | Colby Parkinson entering draft Sat Jan 18, 08:19 PM
Stanford TE Colby Parkinson has decided to skip his senior season and will enter the 2020 NFL Draft.
|Footballguys view: Being a Stanford tight end (which litter the NFL...in a good way) means that Parkinson is smart and well-rounded as a prospect. He's big and has the athleticism to create separation against linebackers and safeties. We should see him as a mid-round pick in the 2020 NFL draft.|
NFL | Joe Burrow to skip Senior Bowl Sat Jan 18, 07:13 PM
LSU QB Joe Burrow has declined an invitation to attend the 2020 Senior Bowl.
|Footballguys view: Not a big deal here. Burrow is at the top of the 2020 NFL draft and can't really gain anything by participating in the Senior Bowl. In years past we've seen guys like Matt Ryan skip the game, while others like Baker Mayfield go ahead and compete during the week in Mobile, AL.|
NFL | Justin Herbert attending Senior Bowl Sat Jan 18, 07:11 PM
Oregon QB Justin Herbert is scheduled to participate in the 2020 Senior Bowl.
|Footballguys view: Herbert could be high on the list for NFL teams...maybe even the Bengals with the No.1 overall pick. Yes, LSU's Joe Burrow is considered a lock by most to be the top pick but Herbert could push for that spot with a great week in Mobile, AL. The Bengals are going to be coaching at the Senior Bowl and are going to get a close look at Herbert and his intriguing physical gifts.|

NFL | Isaiah Simmons enters NFL draft Sat Jan 18, 06:33 PM
Clemson LB Isaiah Simmons declared for the 2020 NFL Draft Saturday, Jan. 18.
|Footballguys view: Simmons is going to be one of the top players selected in the 2020 NFL draft. He's one of the most versatile players in this draft and can play inside linebacker, outside linebacker, safety, and nickel corner. At 6-feet, 4-inches and 230 pounds, it will be interesting to see what teams consider Simmons to be. He should be a top-15 pick at the end of April.|
NFL | Peter Guerriero turning pro Fri Jan 17, 11:49 PM
Monmouth RB Peter Guerriero announced his intention to enter the 2020 NFL Draft on Friday, Jan. 17.
|Footballguys view: Guerriero was one of four finalists for the Walter Payton Award, given to the FCS's top offensive player. He finished this year for the Hawks with a career-high (and Monmouth single-season record) 1,995 yards rushing. Guerriero has track speed and a 190-pound frame meaning that he could attract attention in the scouting community as a change-of-pace back at least.|

NFL | Thaddeus Moss entering draft Fri Jan 17, 03:59 PM
Louisiana State TE Thaddeus Moss announced Friday, Jan. 17, that he will be entering the 2020 NFL Draft.
|Footballguys view: Randy Moss's son might not be an early draft pick, but we should still watch where he lands in the draft. He had two scores in the national title game and should be drafted primarily as a receiver.|
NFL | Joe Burrow eager for Bengals? Fri Jan 17, 12:25 PM
LSU QB and 2020 NFL Draft prospect Joe Burrow is the near-consensus projected No. 1 overall pick, currently owned by the Cincinnati Bengals. 'He's excited to even be in that conversation, and if the Bengals do draft him, he's going to be happy,' Burrow's father, Jimmy, said in an interview Thursday, Jan. 16, with Montreal radio station TSN 690.
|Footballguys view: Burrow was the top high school football player in Ohio previously. This would be a homecoming of sorts, although he played his high school ball in Athens, which is across the state from Cincinnati.|
NFL | Austin Jackson entering 2020 draft Fri Jan 17, 12:33 AM
University of Southern California OL Austin Jackson declared for the 2020 NFL Draft on Wednesday, Jan. 15.
|Footballguys view: Jackson was first-team all Pac 12 this year and should go in the first two rounds. The offensive tackle class is strong and teams that don't take the position in the first round may look at Jackson in the early second, or even trade back into the late first for him if he has a good pre-draft season.|

NFL | Grant Delpit entering 2020 draft Wed Jan 15, 03:22 PM
Louisiana State S Grant Delpit announced Wednesday, Jan. 15, that he will be entering the 2020 NFL Draft.
|Footballguys view: Delpit is arguably the best safety in the 2020 NFL draft. He is aggressive when playing near the line of scrimmage and adept at playing in coverage. Delpit is smart and flies to the ball. His aggression as a tackler does lead to some misses as he tries to make a big hit but Delpit is easily a top prospect and first-round pick.|
NFL | Tee Higgins entering draft Wed Jan 15, 02:53 PM
Clemson WR Tee Higgins announced Wednesday, Jan. 14, that he will be entering the 2020 NFL Draft.
|Footballguys view: Higgins is one of the best receivers in this stacked 2020 NFL draft. This wide receiver class is arguably the best in NFL history with Higgins being right there near the top. Higgins has a fantastic size/speed combination and has natural hands to make difficult catches seem routine. He didn't run the full route tree in college but Higgins has shown the ability to do so with his athleticism. He's a lock to be a first-round pick and near the top of the draft.|
NFL | Toren Young declaring for the draft Tue Jan 14, 10:21 PM
University of Iowa RB Toren Young announced his intention to enter the 2020 NFL Draft on Tuesday, Jan. 14.
|Footballguys view: It's an interesting although not completely unexpected move for the Hawkeyes power runner. He's likely to be a priority free agent (and perhaps considered a fullback) for NFL teams after the 2020 NFL draft. During his college career at Iowa, Young rushed for 1,262 yards and 8 touchdowns.|
NFL | Tua Tagovailoa expected to throw before draft Tue Jan 14, 08:54 PM
Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa (hip) is expected to participate in a throwing workout before the 2020 NFL Draft, according to his agent Leigh Steinberg. He could throw as soon as Alabama's Pro Day depending on his recovery.
|Footballguys view: Tagovailoa is going to be a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL draft. The medical checks at the Scouting Combine in February will be huge for his draft stock. He is already likely to be the Dolphins pick at No.5 overall but a team like the Panthers may want to leapfrog them to get this quarterback. He's a special talent and known as a great leader. Tagovailoa is a potential franchise quarterback at the pro level.|
NFL | Tristan Wirfs entering draft Tue Jan 14, 08:00 PM
Iowa OT Tristan Wirfs announced Tuesday, Jan. 14, that he will be entering the 2020 NFL Draft.
|Footballguys view: Wirfs is one of the 10 best prospects in this draft class of any position. He's a calm tackle who doesn't get rattled when facing elite-level prospects. Instead, Wirfs plays with great power and punch to control his man. Wirfs also has the athleticism to slide and shadow edge rushers when he's protecting his quarterback.|
NFL | A.J. Epenesa entering draft Tue Jan 14, 05:06 PM
Iowa DE A.J. Epenesa announced Tuesday, Jan. 14, that he will be entering the 2020 NFL Draft.
|Footballguys view: Epenesa should be a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL draft. He's big and strong, measuring in at 6'6" 280 pounds. Epenesa uses a bull-rush to get after the quarterback and can get to the backfield quickly. He does a good job setting the edge as a run-defender. Epenesa will have to learn more pass-rushing moves to be an even more dangerous pro.|
NFL | Antonio Gates wraps up illustrious career Tue Jan 14, 02:08 PM
Free-agent TE Antonio Gates (Chargers) announced his retirement from football via social media Tuesday, Jan. 14.
|Footballguys view: Gates wraps up his 16-year career with the Chargers and will go down as a future Hall of Fame player and one of the best tight ends in NFL history. No other tight end in the NFL has had more touchdowns (116) than Gates, and he ranks No.7 all time in that category. Gates didn't play in 2019 and finishes his career with 955 catches for 11,841 yards.|

University of Cincinnati RB Michael Warren II announced his intention to enter the 2020 NFL Draft on Friday, Jan. 10.
|Footballguys view: Warren was a workhorse for Cincinnati but will have to prove himself as a reserve player in the pros. He carried 261 times for 1,265 yards and fourteen touchdowns for the Bearcats in 2019. Expect Warren to be a late-round pick in the 2020 NFL draft.|
