In a move that had been making its way through the rumor mill for a while, USC announced that Jesse Scroggins will transfer.

The Trojans are left with three scholarship quarterbacks on their roster: Matt Barkley, Cody Kessler and Max Wittek. The latter two are expected to compete for the No. 2 spot this fall. Scroggins was reportedly battling academic issues this spring, but Kiffin cleared that rumor up by stating that Scroggins was academically eligible and had "a strong spring semester in the classroom". Still no word as to where Scroggins intends to transfer to.

FSU LB Telvin Smith visited the Broncos this week, according to Aaron Wilson.

Smith has previously visited the Carolina Panthers and the Philadelphia Eagles, along with privately working out for the Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots, Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Some evaluators want to move Smith to safety, which we don't understand. He is under 220 pounds, but Smith is naturally physical and has plenty of speed that blockers will have to worry about.

Kansas State S Ty Zimmerman is visiting the Bengals on Thursday, according to Aaron Wilson.

Zimmerman is a four year starter who is likely being re-checked with medicals after injuring his labrum this year. NFL Network's Charles Davis called Zimmerman one of the draft's biggest sleepers at safety, saying he's "always in the right spot."

Clemson WR Martavis Bryant visited and worked out for the Bucs, according to Aaron Wilson.

"Bryant has a combined total of 22 visits and private workouts, including visits with the Miami Dolphins, Indianapolis Colts, Carolina Panthers, San Francisco 49ers, Pittsburgh Steelers and Detroit Lions," according to Wilson, who added the receiver privately worked out for the Rams. Bryant had a high drop rate of 12.5 percent, according to Greg Peshek, but he has plenty of vertical speed.

NFL.com's Bucky Brooks would select Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas over Pittsburgh's Tom Savage and SMU's Garrett Gilbert "because he is more talented, athletic and experienced than those players."

The analyst passes on that QB guru George Whitfield, Jr. compared Thomas' talent to former pupils including Cam Newton and Ben Roethlisberger. "He told me the Virginia Tech standout was on par with the Pro Bowlers from a physical standpoint and just needed some seasoning to become a viable option as a quarterback at the next level," Brooks wrote. The 6-foot-6, 250-pound Thomas tested as the class' fastest, highest leaping, longest jumping and strongest-armed QB. "I believe San Francisco, Carolina, Kansas City and Philadelphia would be ideal spots based on their experience developing young, athletic quarterbacks," Brooks wrote. "Although those aforementioned teams aren't in need of a quarterback, the opportunity to bring along an intriguing developmental prospect in a low-pressure environment could pay huge dividends down the road."

South Carolina edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney's agent, Bus Cook, said it was totally his decision to shut down Clowney's private workouts.

Clowney drew heat for terminating any future individual workouts, but the Gamecocks' star is criticized for anything he does that doesn't conform to the idea that he's the next Lawrence Taylor. That's more a function of the way the media works than anything else. Some journalists attempted to tie the workout decision to Clowney's choice to sit out a game against Kentucky with sore ribs, but that was a flimsy argument made more suspect by Cook's assertion that he was behind the workout decision. For the record, it was an astute move. Clowney, the favorite to go No. 1, won't drop below No. 2 under any circumstances; the only way he could have affected his stock one way or the other was to shred a knee like Clemson's Brandon Thomas.

ESPN's Merril Hoge called South Carolina edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney a "very average football player."

It's great to see analysts come strong with opinions based on film study, and Hoge does that with the best of them. However, if he isn't careful with hyperbolic diction like this, people are going to stop taking his opinions seriously (if they haven't already, that is). "His fundamentals and technique really struggle," Hoge said, throwing it to the tape (available at the link below). He proceeded to show cherry-picked clips displaying "atrocious" pad level, and argued that superior NFL lineman will knock Clowney backwards. Hoge apparently believes that Clowney is only "a star" and "famous" because of his celebrated helmet-popping hit in the Outback Bowl. These are the words of a caricature.

Auburn T Greg Robinson grades out as ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay's No. 11 overall draft prospect over the past five years.

"Robinson is the most dominant offensive lineman at the point of attack that I've ever evaluated, and I gave him one of the highest grades I've ever given an O-lineman," McShay wrote. "He has elite size, strength, length and power. He has some mechanical work to do as a pass protector, but he has very good change-of-direction skills for his size." The analyst gave Robinson a "97" grade, which he also assigned to WR A.J. Green, CB Patrick Peterson, DT Marcell Dareus, and S Eric Berry, for point of reference. "The Rams look like a possible fit for Robinson with the No. 2 overall pick, but if he does make it past St. Louis he won't last long," McShay wrote.

The Bucs will consider drafting Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel at No. 7, reports ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure.

McClure's source, identified only as a "league source," did not divulge other players Tampa Bay is considering. With Mike Glennon at starter, McCown as his backup, and numerous holes elsewhere on the roster, it doesn't seem probable that Tampa Bay will tab a QB, but if they fall in love with a prospect like Manziel, all bets are off.

ESPN's Todd McShay said on the "First Draft" podcast that Virginia T Morgan Moses "is one of the 15 best players in the draft."

"Write that down," McShay said. "He's got power, he's got the long, long arms, almost 36 inch arms... not many guys like that." Moses played some of his best football against top-notch rushers such as Vic Beasley, Jeremiah Attaochu and Kyle Van Noy. Mel Kiper, however, believes Moses plays too high. Kiper scoffed at McShay's assertion that Moses is better than Notre Dame's Zach Martin. "Talk about overrating an offensive tackle," Kiper said.

ESPN's Todd McShay says that NFL teams are concerned about Notre Dame NT Louis Nix's desire based on his playing shape and social media usage.

"They're just concerned that his focus and desire aren't where they should be," McShay said. Nix, known as "Irish Chocolate" online, produced a YouTube series called "Chocolate News" which included such segments as going to Costco. He also made fun of Brian Kelly to the coach's face. SB Nation asked Nix about what he was asked about during the interview process of the combine: "Maybe they thought I was too laid back, I don't know, but I just like being laid back and friendly and a cute person, but like I said I can be mean when it's time to," he said. "I just be myself, I'm not changing for anybody." The 6-foot-2 3/8 and 331-pounder could go as high as the mid-first round, or he could drop into the second.

Auburn edge rusher Dee Ford visited the Falcons on Tuesday, according to Aaron Wilson.

Wilson adds Ford previously visited the Texans and privately worked out for the New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New England Patriots, Indianapolis Colts, Houston Texans and the Falcons. Ford might stick to a sub-package pass rushing role early, until he learns how to anticipate run blocking angles.
