Football mlive.com —  Mayock said he could see Waynes being drafted as high as No. 7 overall, to the Chicago Bears.

Football btn.com —  Michigan State has been one of the Big Ten’s top programs in recent years, winning 11 or more games four times in the last five seasons. But the NFL draft doesn’t reflect that success. Instead, it reinforces the notion that Mark Dantonio and his staff have few peers when it comes to developing talent to fit their system. The results are prodigious, with bowl wins in each of the last four years, as Dantonio routinely turns three-star recruits into five-star studs.

I'm doing my best to enjoy it, but all I can do is work out and try to stay in shape and get in football shape as best I can. My pro day went well.

I think my final workout is with the Tennessee Titans and then I'm done and I start my visits in April.
