CORVALLIS - Ryan Nall could breathe easy Friday, even though much is uncertain six weeks away from the 2018 NFL draft. The former Oregon State running back spent the waning minutes of the school's Pro Day in discussion with a representative from the Seattle Seahawks. He's met one-on-one with running backs coaches from the Cincinnati Bengals, Arizona Cardinals and Washington, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
Oregon State on Friday will become the latest Division I football team to host its Pro Day. Fifteen former Beavers will participate in a series of drills that will be measured and watched by professional scouts in the lead up to the 2018 NFL draft, which will be held in Dallas from April 26-28. Running back Ryan Nall will participate, although it remains unclear which tests he will perform. Nall was the lone player from the 2017 OSU roster to earn an invite to the NFL combine two weeks ago.
Speaking Thursday night during halftime of a national CBS broadcast, Buffalo coach Nate Oats did not mince words when asked what it would take to upset Arizona. "I think we're better," he said, his No. 13 seed holding a two-point lead in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in Boise. Oats' words were prophetic, as Buffalo went on to decimate Arizona 89-68. It was the Bulls' first NCAA Tournament win in program history, and it also sealed an ugly bit of history for Pac-12 men's basketball.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
