We're inching closer and closer to the NFL draft so why don't we check in on the seven Pac-12 players who were included in the first round of Todd McShay's most recent NFL Mock Draft?
On Tuesday, Mariota had his individual workout in Eugene with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Center Hroniss Grasu is along as well so Mariota can be under center, which, as we all witnessed at Oregon's pro day, was something kind of strange. Sounds like they'll be having a sit down meeting before hitting the field.
The Bucs' crew arrived at the facility door here on campus and was greeted by...Marcus Mariota himself, welcoming us in. - Tampa Bay Buccaneers (@TBBuccaneers) April 7, 2015
No. 4 Leonard Williams -- Oakland Raiders Williams is reportedly visiting the Jacksonville Jaguars on Tuesday, along with a few other pass rushers. According to the Los Angeles Times' Lindsey Thiry, Williams has been out at quite a few USC practices this spring when he hasn't been traveling.
Tomorrow is a big day for #Jaguars: Among the top names to visit are USC's Leonard Williams, Mizzou's Shane Ray & Nebraska DE Randy Gregory - Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 6, 2015
All reports coming out of Seattle for the Huskies' pro day (including Ted Miller's) were positive. According to the Seattle Times' Adam Jude, Seattle Seahawks GM John Schneider told Shelton, "Just take it easy on us when we play." NFL.com said Shelton had "a very good workout." And Cleveland.com sees Shelton going to the Browns, too. "Ranked last against the run a season ago," writes Chris Fedor, "the Browns get the powerful Shelton, a plug-n-play nose tackle to anchor their 3-4 defense."
In addition to being back at Stanford spring practices it sounds like Peat was also visiting the Rams recently.

Strong was in Philly this past weekend according to Twitter and Instagram, but we haven't heard much else as far as any visits with teams.
Nice workout today @Legendaryking__ @NaseirUpshur @twainmv @JaelenStrong #SNPGD #phillyfinst pic.twitter.com/mctNpfRJou - delanehart (@Delanehart) April 4, 2015
Like Shelton, Peters was a standout at Washington's pro day last week. Sports Illustrated's Doug Farrar had a nice piece on Peters' return to Seattle and wrote that Peters "is rumored to be visiting about half the NFL's teams in the next few weeks."
