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.

LSU redshirt senior QB Danny Etling underwent back surgery

Etling has been dealing with back pain for several months. This surgery is expected to relieve him of that discomfort. LSU HC Ed Orgeron referred to it as a "minor back procedure." Despite his recurring pain, Etling was never held out of spring practice, though he did struggle in Saturday's spring game. He should be ready for the start of August camp barring a complication. All signs at this juncture point toward the redshirt senior starting for the Tigers during the coming season.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Michigan S Jabrill Peppers tested positive for a diluted sample at the NFL Scouting Combine.

News of Alabama LB Reuben Foster's diluted sample broke last week. He has company in that club. Per Schefter, the NFL has informed all of its teams about Peppers' failed test. The 5-foot-11, 213-pounder has yet to offer comment on this report. He was being viewed as a borderline first-round pick prior to this news, but the first round is probably out the window, now. Given the lateness of the date, it is difficult to tell just how far this failed test might cause Peppers to slide. We would be surprised if he dropped all the way to Day 3, though.

Walter Football's Charlie Campbell reports that the Saints are considering taking a quarterback in the first round.

The Saints hold picks Nos. 11 and 32, the latter coming to them as part of their Brandin Cooks trade to the Patriots. Writes Campbell, "Sources say that Payton likes all four of the top quarterback prospects." However, he adds that " it sounded as if it was more unlikely than likely." While a rookie quarterback would have the luxury of developing behind Drew Brees, the team is also desperately in need of defensive help after ranking 27th in total defense for the past campaign.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport cites multiple sources stating the 49ers are still considering a QB at No. 2 overall.

"Taking a quarterback high would likely end any chance at Kirk Cousins," Rapoport notes, which is important since so many believe that is where Cousins ultimately ends up in 2018. Every team in the top five has now been linked with a quarterback, if not two.

According to Ravens beat writer Jeff Zrebiec the team hopes to build a "dominant" offensive line like the Cowboys.

This screams Forrest Lamp to us, after the team lost Kelechi Osemele prior to the 2016 season and starting center Jeremy Zuttah and right tackle Ricky Wagner this offseason. That is a lot of experience. Lamp can play center and guard, and some teams might even keep him at tackle. He might be the Ravens' version of Zack Martin. Garett Bolles and Cam Robinson are also possibilities.

The MMQB's Peter King writes the Ravens and Titans "would be happy to move down" from picks No. 16 and No. 18, respectively.

King was the first to break the Titans-Rams trade last year for the No. 1 pick, so his connections to the Titans are strong. Both teams have obvious needs at corner and receiver, yet the board might not align at the picks. In the latest Rotoworld Football Podcast, Josh Norris suggested Chidobe Awuzie for the Titans if they trade out of the pick.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris states Eagles fans should not FSU RB Dalvin Cook to be the pick at No. 14.

Norris believes OSU corner Gareon Conley and Missouri edge rusher Charles Harris as the likeliest picks, with Christian McCaffrey, Derek Barnett and Jon Allen as other possible options. Obviously other prospects could be in the mix, but that is Norris' conclusion based on information he has heard. That isn't to say the Eagles don't like Cook. They certainly might, but No. 14 might be too rich.

The MMQB's Peter King spoke with one GM who said he has never been a part of a draft with this many medical red flags.

We can throw in a few prospects who have medical questions base don previous surgeries: Dalvin Cook, Ryan Ramczyk, Takk McKinley, Reuben Foster, Sidney Jones and Fabian Moreau, among others. Medical red flags take prospects off boards, leading them to drop more than expected.

Matt Harmon believes Penn State WR Chris Godwin would be a great fit for the Steelers.

We agree, and the Steelers have shown interest in a form of a visit. Harmon notes Godwin's contested catch rate translates to the NFL and he would be a great counterpart to Antonio Brown. We all love Martavis Bryant, but he cannot be relied on. Rotoworld's Josh Norris has passed along buzz that the Steelers will draft a pass catcher in rounds one through three.

USC WR JuJu Smith-Schuster believes the Cowboys and Rams have shown the most interest in him during the draft process.

JuJu was one of two offensive prospects to visit the Cowboys out of their 30 allotted visits. Smith-Schuster seems to be well liked by the NFL in comparison to media evaluators. He is one of the youngest prospects in this class and posted a ton of production in 2015. However, his game fizzled after that.

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."
