South Carolina sophomore DE Jadeveon Clowney is not dressed for Saturday's game against Wofford.

The Terriers utilize a triple option/wing-bone offensive attack, so Clowney would have been asked to work in space and force the pitch rather than rush the passer today. Expect the sophomore and his injured foot to play next week against Clemson.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan passes along that he's talked with "more than a few sources" who are all in on Louisville QB Lamar Jackson.

Raanan believes that five quarterbacks will be drafted within the first 20 picks -- those five presumably being Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Baker Mayfield and Jackson. Should matters play out in that fashion, with a flurry of quarterbacks taken early, that would open the door to the real possibility that we see six quarterbacks off the board by the end of Day 1, as Mason Rudolph or Kyle Lauletta could end up sneaking in just simply due to positional scarcity. All drafts are hyped up, but we suspect this one might have enough twists and turns to make M. Night Shyamalan proud.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Jeff Potrykus writes that Wisconsin junior RB Bradrick Shaw (knee) "probably won't be ready for the opener."

Shaw (6'1/211) sat out spring practice mending from a left knee injury. Apparently a serious one if it's already evident that his season debut could realistically be delayed. It's a distressing development given that Shaw struggled with injury through the past season. He's fallen a ways after receiving pub last offseason as a potential starter for the Badgers. Freshman Jonathan Taylor ultimately wrenched the starting reigns from the competition and went on to crush the 2017 season. Shaw wrapped the year having rushed for 365 yards (3.8 YPC) and a quartet of touchdowns. While his availability for Wisconsin's opener against Western Kentucky is looking dim, we'll continue to monitor his health into August camp, when it will become definitively clear whether he's able to play in that showdown with the Hilltoppers on Aug. 31.

CBS Sports Jason La Canfora reports that UCLA T Kolton Miller is a "top target" for the Oakland Raiders.

La Canfora forwards the possibility of the Raiders trading down from No. 10 -- perhaps with a quarterback-needy team -- and angling for Miller lower in the first round. The problem that the analyst sees Oakland running into, though, is that they could potentially undershoot Miller's draft slot if they trade down too far. He passes along that offensive line coaches and evaluators he trusts have consistently raved about Miller as a potential franchise cornerstone. La Canfora has his doubts whether Miller is going to last past the Detroit Lions (picking at No. 20).

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that the Dallas Cowboys do not consider SMU WR Courtland Sutton to be a first-round talent.

That sound you hear is a million mock drafts dying at the same time. The Cowboys and Sutton were viewed as realistic dance partners the minute the team released Dez Bryant earlier this month, as the 6-foot-3, 218-pound SMU standout offers a similar big-bodied, physical game. It's possible that the assumption that Dallas was looking for a clone of Bryant was a touch off to begin with, though Pauline does hear that they would like the wideout at a second-round price if they don't select a receiver with the No. 19 selection. We would augment all this action by noting that the Cowboys did bring Sutton in for an official predraft visit on Wednesday, the last day prospects could be hosted for such trips.

Cleveland Browns GM John Dorsey said that "hand size is important" in the quarterback the team is drafting.

"With that being said, hand size in November and December, when it's snowing, raining, it's getting muddy. We all know the elements in Cleveland are going to play a role," Dorsey said while addressing the media during his predraft press conference on Thursday. So what are the hand sizes we're talking about, here? Josh Allen wins that competition easily enough, as he measured in with 10 1/8-inch bear paws at the NFL Scouting Combine. No other quarterback even cracked 10 inches in the measurement. Sam Darnold -- who, along with Allen, has been repeatedly linked to the Browns -- comes in much smaller, with baby mitts of 9 3/8 inches. There's been some logical speculation that Darnold's smaller hand-size has been at least somewhat to blame for the quarterback's fumbling issues. In 24 starts at USC, he fumbled 21 times. For what it's worth, Dorsey said that he believes that Darnold's issues holding onto the ball can be fixed.

Texas A&M redshirt senior T Koda Martin transferred to Syracuse as a graduate.

Martin (6'6/311) will be joining his father, Kirk Martin, at Syracuse. The elder Martin serves as quarterbacks coach with the program. Consider this a strong get for the Orange, as they're gaining a tackle who started 10 games in the SEC last season. This isn't the first time that Martin has been in the news this spring -- he was hospitalized and treated for heat stroke at the beginning of the month, while taking part in spring practice with the Aggies.

MMQB's Albert Breer reports that Florida State S Derwin James turned down an invitation by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to take part in a private workout.

This was not James snubbing the Buccaneers specifically, but rather he and his team feeling satisfied with the safety standout's work at the NFL Scouting Combine. He apparently has not been alone in declining these types of workouts, with Breer writing that "that’s a decision I’ve heard a couple other kids projected inside the Top 15 or so picks have made as well." The reasoning, here, is that the workout and visit schedules for James and other top prospects have grown somewhat untenable -- especially with the NFL Scouting Combine being pushed back into March this year. The more workouts packed into a smaller space, the greater the chance for predraft injury.

Averion Hurts, the father of Alabama junior QB Jalen Hurts, said that his son is "a quarterback, and he wants to play quarterback."

This was in reference to the on-going quarterback battle between Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa down in Tuscaloosa. There's been some speculation that if Tagovailoa wins the starting job this summer, Hurts could potentially shift to receiver. At least right now, it would appear that the junior's camp is not budging off their stance that he will continue to play quarterback. If not at Alabama, then somewhere else. The senior Hurts addressed the possibility of a transfer in addition to his positional comments, saying that if his son does not win out over Tagovailoa, then "he’d be the biggest free agent in college football history." That's a bit of hyperbole, though Hurts would certainly be much sought after if he did decide on a transfer.

Philadelphia Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman said that the team is open to potentially trading back.

"We're open for business in every round -- if it's something that we think makes sense for our team, we're going to do it," he said. "But at the same time, we're ready to pick." It's pretty boilerplate front office speak for this time of the year, but in the particular case of the Eagles, it is sensible possibility to watch. They own the No. 32 pick, at the end of the first round. That's very much in the range of selections where you often see teams jump up from the second round. Additionally, the Eagles don't have a second- or third-round pick this year, as the bill has now come due for their trade up to No. 2 in 2016, when they selected franchise face Carson Wentz.

As part of his argument to the NCAA in hopes of gaining immediate eligibility, Michigan junior QB Shea Patterson wrote a scathing nine-page letter regarding his time at Ole Miss.

CBS Sports was able to take a look at this letter, part of Patterson's eligibility case, and released a few portions. In it, the quarterback goes hard at former Ole Miss HC Hugh Freeze -- whom he is arguing led him and other program recruits astray when it came to NCAA sanctions about to come down on the program. Wrote Patterson, "It doesn't seem fair to me that the only thing standing in the way of Coach Freeze making $5 million a year at another school was the discovery that he wasn't the trustworthy, straight-laced role model that he claimed to be." The quarterback also took a more veiled shot at Freeze when talking about Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh, writing that Harbaugh possesses "values, integrity and leadership values." In one of the more optically-dense moves a scandal-ridden program could make, Ole Miss has been arguing against Patterson's case for immediate eligibility in Ann Arbor. The NCAA should make their ruling in this case soon enough.

Wisconsin junior WR Quintez Cephus has returned to practice in limited capacity after missing the majority of the spring while rehabbing from a broken right leg suffered during the 2017 season.

Cephus (6'1/195) saw his season cut short when he broke his leg against Iowa this past November. Prior to sustaining the injury, he had been working to a 30-501-6 receiving line for the campaign. The junior figures to be a key component in the Badgers offense this coming season so long as he can maintain his health. Already quite deep into his rehab, Cephus is expected to be fully healed up by the start of August camp.
