CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman announced that if junior DB Tyrann Mathieu "became ineligible because of a third failed drug test, he will not be able to play this year at another NCAA school."

NCAA rules state that a player must be eligible at the school he is transferring from in order to be play at his new school. Therefore, this would prohibit Mathieu from playing the 2012 season at any level of NCAA competition. If this turns out to be the reason for Mathieu's dismissal, then the junior's likeliest landing spots are NAIA schools, but HBCU schools and even junior colleges have been mentioned. LSU head coach Les Miles did not disclose the reasoning for Mathieu's dismissal, instead calling it "fundamental behavior."

Walter Football's Charlie Campbell reports that the Saints are considering taking a quarterback in the first round.

The Saints hold picks Nos. 11 and 32, the latter coming to them as part of their Brandin Cooks trade to the Patriots. Writes Campbell, "Sources say that Payton likes all four of the top quarterback prospects." However, he adds that " it sounded as if it was more unlikely than likely." While a rookie quarterback would have the luxury of developing behind Drew Brees, the team is also desperately in need of defensive help after ranking 27th in total defense for the past campaign.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport cites multiple sources stating the 49ers are still considering a QB at No. 2 overall.

"Taking a quarterback high would likely end any chance at Kirk Cousins," Rapoport notes, which is important since so many believe that is where Cousins ultimately ends up in 2018. Every team in the top five has now been linked with a quarterback, if not two.

According to Ravens beat writer Jeff Zrebiec the team hopes to build a "dominant" offensive line like the Cowboys.

This screams Forrest Lamp to us, after the team lost Kelechi Osemele prior to the 2016 season and starting center Jeremy Zuttah and right tackle Ricky Wagner this offseason. That is a lot of experience. Lamp can play center and guard, and some teams might even keep him at tackle. He might be the Ravens' version of Zack Martin. Garett Bolles and Cam Robinson are also possibilities.

The MMQB's Peter King writes the Ravens and Titans "would be happy to move down" from picks No. 16 and No. 18, respectively.

King was the first to break the Titans-Rams trade last year for the No. 1 pick, so his connections to the Titans are strong. Both teams have obvious needs at corner and receiver, yet the board might not align at the picks. In the latest Rotoworld Football Podcast, Josh Norris suggested Chidobe Awuzie for the Titans if they trade out of the pick.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris states Eagles fans should not FSU RB Dalvin Cook to be the pick at No. 14.

Norris believes OSU corner Gareon Conley and Missouri edge rusher Charles Harris as the likeliest picks, with Christian McCaffrey, Derek Barnett and Jon Allen as other possible options. Obviously other prospects could be in the mix, but that is Norris' conclusion based on information he has heard. That isn't to say the Eagles don't like Cook. They certainly might, but No. 14 might be too rich.

The MMQB's Peter King spoke with one GM who said he has never been a part of a draft with this many medical red flags.

We can throw in a few prospects who have medical questions base don previous surgeries: Dalvin Cook, Ryan Ramczyk, Takk McKinley, Reuben Foster, Sidney Jones and Fabian Moreau, among others. Medical red flags take prospects off boards, leading them to drop more than expected.

Matt Harmon believes Penn State WR Chris Godwin would be a great fit for the Steelers.

We agree, and the Steelers have shown interest in a form of a visit. Harmon notes Godwin's contested catch rate translates to the NFL and he would be a great counterpart to Antonio Brown. We all love Martavis Bryant, but he cannot be relied on. Rotoworld's Josh Norris has passed along buzz that the Steelers will draft a pass catcher in rounds one through three.

USC WR JuJu Smith-Schuster believes the Cowboys and Rams have shown the most interest in him during the draft process.

JuJu was one of two offensive prospects to visit the Cowboys out of their 30 allotted visits. Smith-Schuster seems to be well liked by the NFL in comparison to media evaluators. He is one of the youngest prospects in this class and posted a ton of production in 2015. However, his game fizzled after that.

According to a police report obtained by Florida Times-Union correspondent Patrick Pinak, Florida DT Caleb Brantley faces a misdemeanor battery charge for allegedly punching a woman in the face and knocking her unconscious.

The incident is believed to have occurred on April 13. Per the report, the victim pushed Brantley after he made "crude comments." Brantley allegedly responded by punching the woman in the face with a closed fist, knocking her unconscious and dislodging a tooth. The police report considered that action retaliation, not self-defense. Previously considered a Round 3 pick -- with a ceiling of Round 2 -- Brantley's stock will freefall if this report proves to be true. "Great chance he goes undrafted with this charge coming so close to the draft," Bleacher Report's Matt Miller tweeted. "Teams will be scrambling for info."

Former NC State sophomore TE Thaddeus Moss transferred to LSU.

Thaddeus, the son of former NFL superstar Randy Moss, caught only six balls during his true freshman campaign at NC State. The 6-foot-3, 240-pound Thaddeus Moss told The Advocated that he'll have a better opportunity at LSU under first-year coordinator Matt Canada, who once upon a time recruited Moss to NCSU before getting fired prior to Moss' arrival on campus. Canada was unable to flip Moss to Pitt, but he's now landed his man. Moss must sit out the upcoming year but has three years of eligibility remaining at the start of the 2018 campaign. He's the second recent high-profile transfer that LSU has landed, following the Monday commitment of former five-star Texas Tech DL Breiden Fehoko.

In a Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel poll on the class' top receiver, Western Michigan WR Corey Davis narrowly topped Clemson's Mike Williams and Washington's John Ross to finish best in show.

"I don’t know how fast he could run but Michael Irvin ran 4.57 and he makes all those plays like Michael Irvin," one scout said. "Watch the games against Illinois, Northwestern, Wisconsin. Strong, quick, can break tackles. He’s the best." Davis' pre-Draft process has been quieter than most after he missed the NFL Combine due to minor ankle surgery he underwent in February. "He’s good, but not like some of the top guys from the past two years," said a third scout. "He’s like the kid from the Eagles (Jordan Matthews). Little better hands."
