Buffalo Bills GM Buddy Nix has "gone out of his way" to drop big hints about drafting a QB in April.

Beat writer Tim Graham believes it may be a marketing strategy, either in the hopes of Nix saving his job or building enthusiasm for the Bills heading into the offseason. "I can recall twice in the past month Buddy Nix -- almost as a non sequitur -- delivered a revelation about drafting a QB in April," Graham tweeted. This isn't the first time Nix has discussed this kind of possibility, but 2013 may be the time he invests an early round pick at the position.

NFL.com National Insider Ian Rapoport reports that the Browns believe Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield is not similar on or off the field to Johnny Manziel.

Rapoport notes that the two players came from different offenses -- with Manziel's offense much more spread-based -- and also that Mayfield is a "much better thrower than Manziel ever was." Rapoport also mentions that the off-field arrest of Mayfield was a much different circumstance than the issues Manziel has had off the field. It's looking more and more likely that Mayfield is going to be the first player taken Thursday night.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller reports that the Jets coaching staff is making a late push for Wyoming QB Josh Allen.

This is interesting, as there are reports that the Jets' front-office currently prefer Sam Darnold and Baker Mayfield as the future signal-caller. Now it appears there may be a divide, which isn't uncommon, but isn't ideal, either. There's a chance that both Darnold and Mayfield will both be off the board, and there's been some late rumors that the Jets could move up to the second pick to secure the services of either QB. This will be fascinating to watch when the Jets are on the clock -- whenever that is.

Brett McMurphy reports that Purdue is signing HC Jeff Brohm to an extension through 2024.

Financial terms aren't known at this time. Brohm, 47, guided Purdue to a 6-6 record this year after the school had gone 9-39 the previous four seasons. There were even reports that Brohm was a candidate to become the new coach of the Titans in November, but that job ultimately went to Mike Vrabel.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein projects the Chargers to trade up and select UCLA QB Josh Rosen with the 13th pick in his latest mock draft.

Now this is fun. If you're curious -- and we know you are -- Washington has the 13th pick, and they would move down to 17 in this scenario and select Alabama DT Da'Ron Payne. The Chargers have Phillip Rivers still playing well, but you have to wonder how much longer he has left, and getting a signal-caller like Rosen to be the future would be a boon. If Rosen does indeed slide this far, we expect there will be lots of interest in this range to procure his services.

Walter Football's Charlie Campbell passes along that Louisville CB Jaire Alexander has been red-flagged by some due to a concern over the health of his knee.

Alexander missed six games during the 2017 season due to a knee injury and it appears that there could be teams who are scared off by that injury concern. In addition to the knee, the Louisville product also fought through a broken wrist. The 5-foot-10, 196-pounder is a likely first-round selection, though obviously his health could potentially push him onto Day 2.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein says Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield being the No. 1 overall pick to the Browns "is happening."

Mel Kiper has moved Mayfield to being the first overall pick, as has Daniel Jeremiah. If that is the case, the No. 2 pick with the Giants is now a fascinating selection with Sam Darnold and the trickle down from there.

The Saints placed calls about a potential "big leap" up from No. 27, according to Ian Rapoport.

It would only make sense for a quarterback, top corner or edge rusher. The Saints do not have a second round pick after trading for Alvin Kamara last year, so a trade up would involve their 2019 first round pick.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah connected the Ravens with South Dakota State TE Dallas Goedert at No. 16 overall in his final mock.

Jeremiah got his start in scouting with the Ravens. Me mentions the player, team connection might come in a trade down. Most importanlty, Jeremiah makes it clear the Ravens must exit this draft with a tight end, and this would be a statement selection.

The MMQB's Albert Breer relays word that Bears GM Ryan Pace likes Ohio State CB Denzel Ward "a lot."

The Bears are most often connected to Roquan Smith or Tremaine Edmunds in order to upgrade the linebacker group, but Ward has a realy shot of being the pick at No. 8 as the first corner off the board. Breer notes this information comes from people on the Bears staff in 2017.

ESPN's Adam Schefter states there is "a mounting belief" among NFL GMs and coaches that Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield will be the Browns' selection at No. 1.

It should be noted that John Dorsey is still keeping this a secret. There are plenty of voices in the Browns' draft room, and Dorsey must narrow down his decision to what he believes. However, bringing in a respected evaluator like Scot McCloughan, who previously stated Mayfield was his top quarterback, might help Baker's case for No. 1.

On the Stick to Football podcast, Bleacher Report's Matt Miller reported that five teams have taken Boise State LB Leighton Vander Esch off their draft boards because of a "neck" and/or "spine" issue.

Miller explains: "It's a spine problem where they feel like it's narrowing. And for some teams that's just too much of a problem. It's too scary for them, they're not going to take that risk." Miller was unequivocal in his report. This dispatch mirrors news first reported by Walter Football's Charlie Campbell a little over a week ago. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom reported that Vander Esch's medical report included a concussion, a c-spine nerve injury and a minor knee injury. The concussion and pinched nerve occurred on the same play in 2016, injuries that ended his season prematurely. Whether the "narrowing" that Miller vaguely alludes to has anything to do with that injury or not is not yet known. Expect for this to be a storyline all day Thursday. Vander Esch has been considered a consensus Round 1 prospect throughout the process. We'll find out on Thursday night whether this news effects that status.
