Louisiana State OT La'el Collins' agent is looking to pull Collins out of the 2015 NFL Draft in order to give him time to clear his name, according to sources.

Most teams are looking for a police report that completely clears him from any wrongdoing before considering taking him in the draft.

Free-agent WR Wes Welker (Broncos) has been cleared to continue his playing career by one of the top concussion doctors. Welker said he did well in all of the tests during his visit with the doctor. Welker is working out in Florida and waiting to sign with a team.
Fantasy Tip: Welker has seen his stats drop in each of the last two seasons and has also dealt with some concussions during that time. Welker could receive some interest later in the offseason but likely would not be more than a late-round pick in deeper leagues next season.

Baylor QB Bryce Petty appears to be firmly entrenched as a pick in the early second-round mix, although it would not be surprising to see him go in the late first round, as teams would get a fifth-year option.
Fantasy Tip: Petty lit up the scoreboard in Art Briles' offense, and we saw Robert Griffin III make the successful transition from Baylor before he had several injuries. Petty is an interesting QB to watch in this draft. He could be a nice sleeper fantasy player if he lands in the right situation and gets a chance to play sooner rather than later.

There are differing opinions on Southern California WR Nelson Agholor. One person who has spoken to several league executives said draftniks seem more enamored with Agholor than some teams do.
Fantasy Tip: The Miami Dolphins have been interested in Agholor, and he might be obtainable with a first-round trade back. He showed well at USC, but the jury is still out on how his game will translate to the NFL.
