Nebraska TE Cethan Carter drew high praise from former NFL head coach Mike Martz, who had him on his team at the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. "He's got length; he's got juice to get up field," Martz said. "He's got speed -- not just real speed, he can change direction. Not quite like a wide receiver, but you can certainly space him out on his own at wide-out, and he'd do extremely well." Martz also called him "exceptional" and a "smart guy."

Free-agent RB Rashad Jennings (Giants) said he has a chip on his shoulder after being released by the New York Giants. Jennings believes he still has a strong work ethic and plenty of gas left in the tank, not to mention that he's healthy.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings is past his prime at 32 years old, but he can still compete. That being said, he will assuredly be part of a committee if/when he is signed by someone. Jennings' value will be minimal barring any injury to a backfield teammate. He shouldn't be looked at as more than a late-round flier.
