» DT Treyvon Hester (6-2 3/4, 305) didn't do anything at the combine or his pro day because he's recovering from right shoulder surgery. He has a workout planned for April 13 in Toledo. He's a good-looking player.

» RB Kareem Hunt (5-10 5/8, 220) ran the 40 in 4.53 and 4.63 seconds, had a 4.53-second short shuttle, and a 7.22-second three-cone. He stood on the rest of his combine numbers.

» Lake Erie TE Anthony Kukwa (6-2, 231) ran the 40 in 4.62 and 4.63 seconds, had a 37-inch vertical, a 10-7 broad jump, a 4.39-second short shuttle, a 7.03-second three-cone, and added 27 strength lifts. He'll be signed to a free agent contract because of his long-snapping skill set.

» Notre Dame (Ohio) WR Mitchell Shegos (6-0, 203) ran the 40 in 4.60 and 4.61 seconds, had a 29-inch vertical, a 9-4 broad jump, a 4.19-second short shuttle, a 6.83-second three-cone, and 18 bench lifts. He's a projected free agent.
