On his Wednesday conference call, ESPN's Mel Kiper stated multiple times that Georgia OLB Jarvis Jones could be a Von Miller-type player for whichever team selects him.

Kiper specifically mentioned Jones when asked about the Detroit Lions. We continue to say that it is tough to deny Jarvis jones' edge speed, but Von Miller is a lofty comparison. This likely means Kiper believes Jones could play the strong side linebacker spot in a 4-3, something we did not see him do very much, if at all, at Georgia.

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."

In a Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel poll of 16 NFL evaluators, Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer was named the most likely quarterback to bust among the class' top-five signal-callers.

Kizer received nine votes. Texas Tech's Pat Mahomes finished a distant No. 2 with two votes, while UNC's Mitch Trubisky and Clemson's Deshaun Watson received one apiece. Two of the executives copped out and said all five -- Cal's Davis Webb being the fifth -- were equally risky. "He’s not as good as he should be because he’s not committed to the game," one AFC executive said of Kizer. "He’s committed to building a brand. He wants all the things that come with being a starting quarterback but doesn’t want to put in the work." An NFC personnel man agreed, saying Kizer is most interested in status and money. "That’s what drives him," said the executive. "It’s all about him. Prima donna. Thin-skinned." Chad Reuter's most recent mock draft has Kizer slipping to Round 3.

Hall of Fame defensive lineman Warren Sapp doesn't believe Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett is worthy of being the No. 1 pick.

"I don't see it from this kid," Sapp said. "I see the splash plays -- everybody gets those. Where's the game he took over? Where? Any defensive lineman who's the No. 1 pick, you turn up and you say, 'There it is!' This kid, no, I don't. I'm a pretty plain and frank guy, and I watch the tape and he disappears." Garrett is the odds-on favorite to go No. 1 to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night. "I don't think this kid is as good as Courtney Brown, either," Sapp said, evoking Cleveland's No. 1 overall pick in the 2000 draft. Sapp believes Garrett's evaluation is based on his measurables, not his game. "I see a lazy kid that makes four plays a game," Sapp said. "This is the No. 1 guy? No, no, no. This ain't even close." We disagree with the idea that Garrett didn't heavily influence every game he played in at Texas A&M. Garrett posted 31 sacks and 47 TFL over 34 collegiate games despite consistent double-teams.

Arkansas WRs Cody Hollister and Keon Hatcher and Wyoming TE Jacob Hollister are conducting a workout for NFL scouts on Monday morning in Fayetteville, Ark.

The Razorback receivers, Cody Hollister (toe surgery) and Hatcher (hamstring), were unable to participate in Arkansas' pro day due to injury. Jacob Hollister, Cody's brother, was given permission by the NFL to take part in the workout. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes it's "likely" that all three get taken on Day 3 (Round 4-7).

Tennessee senior RB Jalen Hurd transferred to Baylor.

This is a big-time acquisition for new HC Matt Rhule, who has already navigated, in addition to the ongoing scandal at Baylor, a change in offensive philosophy and a large migration of NFL talent to the NFL. The 6-foot-4, 240-pound Hurd left Tennessee after complaining about the offensive philosophy. Hurd, a former five-star recruit, also cited unspecified injuries. Perhaps because of those injuries, Hurd wants to change positions at his new school. Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman reports that he will play receiver at Baylor. At his listed dimensions, Hurd would be one of the largest receivers in the NFL (to say nothing of college). He is one inch shorter and eight points heavier than Plaxico Burress' listed playing size. Hurd was a gifted receiver out of the backfield who had 67 receptions across 33 career games in Knoxville. Hurd will sit this season to satisfy the NCAA's transfer rules. He'll have one year of eligibility remaining in 2018.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky is "still under serious consideration by the Browns at No. 1."

Talk of Trubisky to the Browns at No. 1 simply refuses to die. These rumblings kicked off in earnest on April 11, when ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that there were "split opinions" as to whether to select Myles Garrett -- viewed as close to a consensus No. 1 throughout the process -- or Trubisky. Earlier this week, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora dumped even more fuel on this divided fire, passing along word that Hue Jackson and the Browns' coaching staff was "all in" on Garrett, but that the front office was leaning toward Trubisky. With the Cleveland Plain Dealer's fresh report that Trubisky remains in play for the Browns at No. 1, it is becoming increasingly difficult to just dismiss this as idle talk. We still ultimately think that Browns will take Garrett. One other note from Cabot's report -- she was told "don't be surprised" if the 49ers select Trubisky at No. 2, something that the Browns are almost certainly factoring into their decision.

Washington WR John Ross' agent, Brad Cicala, released a statement detailing his client's injury history.

Cicala released his statement after NFL Network's Mike Mayock reported on Friday that several teams were scrubbing Ross from their draft boards due to concerns over his health and durability. Said Cicala in the statement, "Despite recent reports, John Ross III has never sustained 2 ACL injury’s nor has he had 2 ACL surgeries. In January of 2015 he endured surgery on his right lateral meniscus and in April of 2015 he had surgery on his left ACL." He went on to say that Ross is ahead of schedule in his recovery from the shoulder surgery which he underwent following the Combine and will be healthy for training camps. Cicala also included this rather pertinent note: "I have confirmed with numerous NFL teams that John’s recent medical rechecks have come back positive." Ross is a top-20 possibility come Day 1 of the draft on Thursday.

NFL Network's Charley Casserly hears from an NFL general manager that two quarterbacks will be drafted before the Bills pick at No. 10.

"Two quarterbacks in the top nine. That'd be a shocker," Casserly said. We would be shocked by the rumor, but seeing quarterbacks pushed up the board is nothing new. Perhaps the most tangible part of Casserly's little nugget is that the Bills -- whom met with Deshaun Watson on Friday and have been linked to him by multiple reports throughout the offseason -- might have to maneuver if they are truly coveting the Clemson star. We expect Watson and UNC's Mitchell Trubisky to be the first two quarterbacks selected in one order or another.

Washington junior QB Jake Browning (shoulder) has been throwing without pain this spring.

Browning is on the mend from right shoulder surgery which he underwent following Washington's Playoff loss to Alabama. The 6-foot-2, 206-pounder initially injured his wing in a win over Arizona State on November 19. He indicated that his current goal is to rebuild the strength in that shoulder. All signs point toward him being a go for August camp. Browning figures to land squarely in the 2017 Heisman conversation if healthy. He threw for 3,430 yards and 43 touchdowns this past season.
