Florida State QB E.J. Manuel singled out the Eagles and Chiefs as two teams he hopes will draft him in April.

Obviously Manuel started the conversation answering with "every team," but was intrigued by Chip Kelly's offense at Oregon and what he might bring to Philadelphia. The Chiefs were mentioned due to Andy Reid's history of developing quarterbacks, along with their claim of the first overall pick.

Two NFL personnel executives who spoke with NFL media's Daniel Jeremiah expressed their enthusiasm regarding Ole Miss sophomore T Laremy Tunsil's pro future.

"He's got great feet, and he's only going to get better," one exec said. Another called Tunsil a "freak." Ole Miss has plenty of 2016 NFL Draft talent, so that means it is not time to crown these prospects as the second coming of hall of famers.

The 2015 NFL Draft will take place from April 30 to May 2, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Schefter adds the league is still undecided whether the event will be held in Los Angeles or Chicago. Prior to 2014, the league would hold the draft during the final weekend in April, and as we saw in 2014, the NFL is no longer afraid to cross over into May. These dates show the draft is still three days, so rumors about it being extended into four do not seem likely in 2015.

Stanford junior T Andrus Peat is still having issues lunging in pass protection, according to Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl.

Weidl calls it a "bad habit," saying the offensive tackle should show more patience and sit back in his stance. Lunging occurs when an offensive tackle over reacts to an pass rushers edge move, and if the defender is good enough they can easily turn the corner. Length, size and functional strength all help prevent the need to waist bend, but only if the blocker knows how to use it.

Wisconsin redshirt junior QB Joel Stave told reporters he is getting closer to overcoming his case of the yips.

"I feel a lot better than I did about a month ago," Stave said. "Obviously, everything around that time was pretty emotional for me. I was upset and frustrated and everything that goes along with it." The "yips" is just a term for a quarterback being unable to pull the trigger on throws, focusing on previous mistakes. Stave is earning more and more second team reps in practice. The school has a below average passing attack with Tanner McEvoy as the starter.

A Pac-12 head coach said Washington redshirt junior CB Marcus Peters reminds him of Seahawks star Richard Sherman "in terms of size, length and ball skills."

The coach added that Peters is in competition with Oregon's Ifo Ekpre-Olomu for the designation of best CB in the Pac-12. "Peters is an intriguing prospect, but that's some tremendous praise from the Pac-12 coach," NFL.com's trio of Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks and Charles Davis wrote. "Ekpre-Olomu is still regarded by many as the top defensive back in all of college football, not just the best corner in the Pac-12. As for the Sherman comparison, Peters might play big, but at 6-feet and 190 pounds, he can't quite match Sherman's size (6-3, 195)." Peters has three picks in his last two games, which perhaps explains the steam behind his recent stock surge. He "has the natural tools to be a top-15 NFL Draft pick," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote last week.

An NFC personnel executive said Michigan junior WR Devin Funchess "can do a lot of the things that make Jimmy Graham special."

"Funchess is one of the best players I've seen this fall," the exec said. "He could play wideout at the next level but I prefer him at tight end." You'll hear the Graham comparison a lot -- including from us -- but it's important to note that Graham is two inches taller and 35 pounds heavier than Funchess. It would be shocking if Funchess returned to Ann Arbor next fall, so it's a little frustrating from an evaluation standpoint that he's been suffering from a a leg injury he says will give him "pain for the rest of the season." He caught four passes for 37 yards in a loss to Minnesota on Saturday, and hasn't scored since catching three touchdowns in the first half of the opener. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Funchess leads the Wolverines with 24 catches for 321 yards despite missing a game to injury.

UCLA redshirt junior QB Brett Hundley "has flaws but he has a huge upside," says a former NFL GM.

"Great athlete and a big arm," the former GM said. "That performance against ASU was one of his best games." In that contest, Hundley completed 18-of-23 attempts for 355 yards and four touchdowns in a 62-27 victory. He also rushed for 72 yards and a score. Scouts from 15 NFL teams watched in person. The 6-foot-3, 227-pound Hundley told SI.com after the game: "That's a great game to come to." He was speaking from the perspective of his wallet.

Utah State senior QB Chuckie Keeton will likely be held out for the remainder of the season.

"Chuckie's health is our top priority and he has not been cleared to play by our medical staff," head coach Matt Wells said. "We will continue to monitor his progress throughout the fall, but given his current condition it is unlikely that he will play in any games in the foreseeable future." Keeton was obviously not 100 percent healthy this season after tearing the ACL and MCL in his left knee last year, and seemed to favor the leg after nearly every hit. A BYU player stated earlier in the week that he had heard Keeton would be given a medical redshirt, so leave that possibility open.

ESPN's Mel Kiper moved FSU redshirt sophomore QB Jameis Winston up to No. 16 from No. 25 on his updated big board.

"Have bumped him up a little as he's played well after his latest off-field issue, but those questions aren't going away," Kiper writes. "He needs time to prove doubters wrong." The longtime draft evaluator went on to praise Winston's ability to handle the pocket and pressure, adding the quarterback would be wise to improve his ball placement, timing "and again, decision-making."

Louisville senior WR DeVante Parker's broken foot is recovering on or ahead of schedule.

The team will have more info on when he is expected to return, but Parker is already running and working out. Parker was initially given a timeline of 6-8 weeks back on August 25. Josh Norris lists Parker as his No. 2 overall receiver.

NC State redshirt junior Jacoby Brissett "has a lot of Ben Roethlisberger to his game in terms of his poise, pocket presence and how difficult he is for defenders to bring down," according to ESPN's Todd McShay.

"He needs to be quicker in getting from one progression to the next, but I think he sees the entire field well and has good vision as a runner," McShay wrote. The analyst reported that 11 NFL teams scouted Saturday's game against Florida State. Brissett starred in a losing effort, going 32-for-48 for 359 yards and three touchdowns. "He's just a junior and is still a work in progress, but I think he has the physical tools to one day develop into an NFL QB," McShay wrote. "His TD pass in the first half, in which he nearly had his helmet ripped off and then warded off another sack attempt along the right sideline, was one of the more impressive individual efforts I've seen in a long time."
