The NFL Network's Mike Mayock guaranteed that three-or-four quarterbacks will be drafted in the first-round in April.

Mayock added that "most of them are coming out of" the Senior Bowl. Among those top quarterbacks Mayock talked about were N.C. State's Mike Glennon, Arkansas' Tyler Wilson, Miami of Ohio's Zac Dysert and Syracuse's Ryan Nassib. We appreciate that Mayock lists Dysert in the mix with other, more notable, names.

Bill Parcells says NC State QB Jacoby Brissett is cut from the same mold as Patriot greats.

"He's a Curtis Martin, Willie McGinest, Troy Brown type player. That's the kind of guy he is. That's what New England is getting," Parcells said. "Those kinds, those Tedy Bruschi types, those players who've been successful -- he's very similar in his personal life to those kinds of guys." Brissett played high school football near Parcells' home in Florida, so the legendary coach took him under his wing. "I have a very high regard for (Brissett)," Parcells said. "He's an awesome kid. He's very bright. He has zero personal issues. He's a very dedicated, committed guy and I think he's going to the absolute perfect place for him." Despite Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom having pegged Brissett as the class' most underrated QB prior to the Draft and despite Rotoworld's Josh Norris having been one of Brissett's earliest champions, the Rotoworld draft team as a whole was as surprised as anyone else that he ended up getting picked above Connor Cook.

In an analysis published in the Washington Post, Pro Football Focus concluded that the Jaguars came out of the 2016 Draft with the most value per pick.

The site used Chase Stuart’s Draft Value Chart to calculate the value of all 32 teams' hauls by PFF's draft board. As you might imagine, Jacksonville came out smelling like roses after landing FSU DB Jalen Ramsey, the No. 3 player on the PFF board, at No. 5, and UCLA LB Jack, PFF's No. 6 player, at No. 36. "Then they managed to come away with Day, our No. 34 overall prospect, in the fourth round," Jeff Dooley wrote. "Only No. 7-overall pick DeForest Buckner had a higher grade among interior defensive lineman than Day last season."

Five-star 2017 QB Tate Martell decommited from Texas A&M.

Martell is a gigantic chess piece in the 2017 recruiting cycle, the top dual-threat quarterback in the class. The Aggies' coaching staff was not able to hide it's dismay at the development, with A&M WR coach Aaron Moorehead going on a bizarre Twitter rant within minutes of Martell's announcement. "I feel sorry for ppl who never understand loyalty," he tweeted. "I can’t really even vibe with u. At the end of the day trust is 💯 & everything else is BS." The 5-foot-10, 192-pound Martell recently made a trip to Ohio State. His recruiting process is officially back open.

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter ranked New Orleans' UDFA class the best in the NFL.

The prospect disbursement process does not end when the Draft does. This year's deep class offered us an assortment of undrafted prospects who would have been picked in past years. The Saints, who had only five picks, dominated in the post-Draft hours. "The Saints found two potential starters in guards Landon Turner and Avery Young (who could end up at tackle eventually)," Reuter wrote. "Offensive tackle Ryker Mathews and centers Jack Allen and Marcus Henry also have NFL futures." The analyst also liked the signing of DBs De'Vante Harris, Ken Crawley, Trae Elston and Michael Caputo and WRs Jordan Williams (tough possession receiver) or Jared Dangerfield (taller downfield threat).

The Ravens' 2016 Draft class earned a perfect A grade from Rotoworld's Evan Silva.

Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome was up to his old tricks, adding an immediate starter in Notre Dame LT Ronnie Stanley in Rd. 1 before fortifying his pass rush with Boise State OLB Kamalei Correa and BYU DE Bronson Kaufusi. Correa's selection came after a few trades down the board, which gave Newsome extra ammo to clean up on Day 3. "He selected two corners [Temple CB Tavon Young and Virginia CB Maurice Canady] and couldn't resist the value offered by deep threat [WR Chris] Moore, underrated DT/DE [Willie] Henry, and all-purpose back [Kenneth] Dixon in a dominant fourth round," Silva wrote. "Baltimore's roster has gotten old and stale and needed a major youth injection. This draft accomplished that and then some."

Baylor HC Art Briles says no NFL teams have called about edge rusher Shawn Oakman.

Such is the life of a radioactive prospect. Oakman's pariah status was well-earned. First, he converted top-five NFL Draft physical ability into a mediocre collegiate career through a lackadaisical compete-when-I-want-to attitude. Next, his do-me disposition got him kicked off Penn State and then arrested on a sexual assault charge weeks before the Draft. It's been a swift, cinematic fall off the map for a person who must have been repeatedly told over the years that getting his act together would net millions of dollars in the very near future. A scintillating dream of unrealized potential in his teenaged and early-20 years, Oakman is now, just out of college, a fully actualized failure.

Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby announced that an analytics firm found that adding two teams would increase the league’s odds of reaching the four-team College Football Playoff by 4-5 percent.

Bowlsby and the Big 12 hired Navigate Research, a Chicago-based analytics firm, to conduct the study, which included running 40,000 simulations. "This was the best outcome," Bowlsby said. At this point, it's a matter of time before the Big 12 adds a pair of schools to get back up to 12 teams. Who will those schools be? The American Athletic Conference's Memphis, Cincinnati, UCF and Houston have all been discussed, as has the independent BYU. Memphis and Cincinnati in particular are known to be lobbying hard for Big 12 membership. University of Memphis president M. David Rudd has sent pro-Memphis material to Big 12 higher-ups, namely Texas administrators. The Longhorns have reportedly held up expansion for financial reasons and influenced Texas Tech and TCU to do the same. Texas AD Mike Perrin publicly states that he's keeping an open mind.

SI's Peter King reports that the Ravens had "reliable information" that the Patriots would try to draft Navy RB/WR Keenan Reynolds in Rd. 6 before Baltimore beat them to it.

Baltimore plucked Reynolds with the No. 182 overall pick. New England had a pair of sixth-rounders later in the stanza. King reports that the Ravens will likely as Reynolds to be an "all-purpose weapon ... returning, rushing, receiving, sort of a latter-day Antwaan Randle-El ... receiver/returner, and maybe a direct-snap back." GM Ozzie Newsome and assistant GM Eric DeCosta found out that Reynolds was learning how to return from Brian Mitchell, one of the all-time greats at it. HC John Harbaugh called Mitchell, a former player, and was told that Reynolds "could be a gifted returner." The rest was history.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed that the team unsuccessfully tried to trade back into Rd. 1 for Memphis QB Paxton Lynch and further admitted that he regretted not having met Seattle's asking price.

In MMQB's look into Dallas' War Room, we learned that Dallas was prepared to move from No. 4 to No. 6 if Baltimore gave them a third-rounder. The Ravens would only offer a fourth, so that deal was scuttled and Dallas took Ezekiel Elliott. Jones' next goal was to find a way to get Lynch, who Dallas ranked No. 12 overall. Dallas offered Nos. (Rd. 2) 34 and (Rd. 3) 67 to teams in the late-teens and early-20s before amending the offer to a second and fourth in the mid-20s. In the end, the Broncos beat the Cowboys to the No. 26 pick and Lynch by offering Seattle 31 and 94, whereas Dallas' best offer was 34 and 101. "If I had to do it all over again?" Jones said. "I’d give the three." Dallas took Jaylon Smith at 34. The story also includes the tidbit that the Cowboys slightly preferred Connor Cook to Dak Prescott and tried to trade up one spot to get him, ultimately losing out to Oakland's offer to Cleveland.

Bucs signed Auburn RB Peyton Barber.

Barber (5'10/228) spent one season as the Tigers' starting tailback, managing 1,017 yards and 13 TDs on 238 carries (4.27 YPC). He only caught 11 passes in his college career. A grinding plodder with scant passing-game experience, Barber ran 4.64 with a sluggish 9-foot-3 broad jump in Indianapolis. Barber has drawn glass-half-full comparisons to Alfred Morris, but ultimately is likely to struggle to carve out a substantial NFL career.

Marshall senior S Tiquan Lang faces multiple charges following a Saturday morning arrest.

Lang is charged with driving under the influence, possession of a concealed deadly weapon and possession of a controlled substance, all misdemeanors. Police found him passed out in a running car. Once they woke him, they discovered a Glock 27 under the seat. Xanax and the odor of marijuana were also found, though the pot itself couldn't be located and Lang said the Xanax had a prescription (the police will drop that charge if he presents it). Lang returned two interceptions for scores and was second on the team with 91 tackles last year.
