In his scouting report of Washington State QB, Walter Football's Charlie Campbell compares Luke Falk to Kirk Cousins.

"Scouting sources have compared Falk to Cousins, which makes sense," writes Campbell. "They don't have great skill sets or overpowering arms, but they are accurate rhythm throwers." Cousins faced similar concerns about his arm strength coming out of the 2012 NFL Draft, but has become an upper-echelon quarterback who is about to get paid an awful lot of money by someone. He ended up going to Washington in the fourth-round that year, and Campbell writes that Falk could go right around that range in 2018. If he does, he could be a steal for a team that gives him a chance to play, or become a competent backup.

NFLDraftScout's Rob Rang believes that Boise State LB Leighton Vander Esch will be the combine's "breakout star."

Vander Esch was a breakout star for the Broncos in 2017 -- going from virtual unknown to winning the Mountain West Conference's defensive player of the year -- and multiple analysts have named him as a player they expect to do well in Indianapolis. Rang is not an exception. "Don’t be surprised when Vander Esch produces some of the top marks in 40-yard dash, shuttle drills and laps (among similarly sized prospects), regardless of position," he writes. The tape matters more, but if Vander Esch does stand out like Rang expects, he could start earning more first-round talk.

While discussing the 10 receivers he's most excited to see during the NFL Scouting Combine, NFL Network Analyst Steve Smith compares Miami WR Braxon Berrios to Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman.

Smith acknowledges his bias to the shorter receivers, and considering how productive he was despite being "undersized," we can't fault him. Barrios was impressive during Senior Bowl practices, with Smith's colleague Bucky Brooks calling him the ultimate slot receiver. "Berrios can play all over the field and makes tough catches look easy," he writes. "I love what he brings to the table and is capable of being the next Danny Amendola or Julian Edelman. A lot of scouts focus on what players can't do, but if they look at what he can do, they'll be pleasantly surprised." If Berrios runs a quality time at the combine, it will do wonders for his draft stock.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes that Texas Tech WR Keke Coutee could be a sleeper as a receiver and return-specialist.

Pro Football Focus listed Coutee as one of the most versatile offensive players in the class because of his ability in the slot and also the deep ball. Pauline adds that he could be an effective returner because of his speed and ability to make tacklers miss. "The junior is an explosive player who’s a threat to score any time the ball is in his hands," he writes. "Even though he’s slightly undersized and will probably check in around 5-foot-10 and 180 pounds, Coutee plays tough, competitive football." Pauline also notes that he'll likely be the fastest wide receiver that receives a top-100 selection.

Rivals National Recruiting Director Mike Farrell calls Ohio State five-star T signee Nicholas Petit-Frere the best fit of the tackle signings in the Big Ten.

To be fair, a talent like Petit-Frere (6'6/272) would be a perfect fit for everyone; he's considered one of -- if not the -- best offensive lineman in the class. It is fair to point out how well he fits with the Buckeyes, however, because of the type of offense Urban Meyer runs. "Petit-Frere has as high a ceiling as any offensive lineman in this class and will be an elite left tackle down the line," Farrell writes. "He's a guy who can also get out to the second level in Ohio State’s offense." There's a real chance we'll see him play early, but the Buckeyes may be tempted to let him get stronger and not burn a redshirt season.

Charlotte has hired Howard co-DC Chip West to be the new co-defensive coordinator and CB coach.

West also was the recruiting coordinator and DB coach for the Bisons, so it sounds like he was pretty busy. Prior to joining Howard, he coached at Virginia, James Madison, Fordham, Colgate and Old Dominion.

Uncommitted five-star 2019 ATH Bru McCoy is hoping to make spring visits to Oklahoma and Alabama.

McCoy is one of the true two-way prospects in the 2019 class, as he's considered an elite potential player at both wide receiver and outside linebacker. He told 247 Sports he doesn't want to take any officials this spring, but does want to visit Oklahoma and Alabama's spring game. He also notes he wants to visit Michigan at some point, but probably not for their spring contest. He ranks as the top athlete in 247 Sports composite rankings, and the eighth best prospect overall.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline writes that Texas CB Holton Hill has "next level" ball skills.

Hill was suspended in November for failing a drug test, and reports are that it was the third time he had failed one while a member of the Texas program. The talent has never been in question, as Pauline notes. "I like his ability in bump-and-run or press coverage and believe he’ll start as a nickel back before growing into a starter," he writes. "This relies on good testing numbers at the combine as well as a clean background check." Teams will especially be nervous about the latter, but if he tests well and they believe he can contribute without causing distractions, he'll certainly be drafted.
