- Boston College Pro Day: With Kuechly performing just linebacker drills, the onus was on other BC and local products to create the buzz from this workout. Former Boston College cornerback Donnie Fletcher proved up to the challenge. Fletcher, who entered his senior season highly regarded by scouts but was shockingly not included among the 36 cornerbacks invited to the Combine, silenced doubters of his straight-line speed with times ranging from 4.38-4.44 in two attempts at the 40-yard dash. He was listed by Boston College at 6-1, 195 pounds and registered 35 tackles, five pass breakups and two interceptions in 2011 for the Eagles. He was also participated in the prestigious Senior Bowl, which made his absence from the Combine list all the more surprising. As you can read in the profile I wrote for Fletcher, I'm higher on him than scouts seem to be. Don't be surprised if this former BC Eagle winds up competing to be one of the first players drafted who wasn't invited to the Combine. Fletcher is currently rated by NFLDraftScout.com as a possible sixth round pick. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
