NFL Film's Greg Cosell think there is no question that West Virginia QB Geno Smith has an NFL arm.

"The ball comes out with good velocity, it comes out with good juice, and the short to intermediate throws are very good," Cosell said. He went on to add that Geno tends to bounce on his drops, and although correctable, it stands out as something to work on. "He does not actually drop, he bounces. And that must be cleaned up."

MMQB's Peter King reports that Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon as "garnered the most interest" from Cincinnati, Minnesota, Green Bay and Jacksonville.

"I won’t be surprised to see the Bengals take Mixon with the 41st overall pick," King added. "Owner Mike Brown has taken chances in the past on players with off-field issues, leaving it to the coaching staff to keep those players in line." Each of these teams has hosted Mixon for a visit. If Mixon is to sneak into Rd. 1, Green Bay, picking near the end of Thursday night's festivities, looks to be his best shot.

ESPN analysts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay both have UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky going No. 1 to the Browns in their final mock drafts.

So does the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Bob McGinn. All three are extremely plugged-in within league circles. "The thinking is the Browns get antsy about Trubisky being available at No. 12 and don't find any takers to trade up," Kiper wrote. "Could Cleveland ownership get involved and insist on a QB here?" Adding to all this, the Las Vegas odds on Trubisky going No. 1 have fallen from 6-to-1 on Wednesday all the way to 2-to-1 on Thursday, while Myles Garrett's odds have dropped from -800 to -350.

Clemson QB Deshaun Watson says it would be a "slap in the face" if UNC's Mitch Trubisky is drafted ahead of him.

Watson argued that his "championship résumé" is what separates him from Trubisky. While Watson was the superior player in college, the NFL prefers Trubisky's raw tools. The odds are high that Watson will feel disrespected on Thursday night.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah says a number of teams are targeting Alabama LB Reuben Foster around pick No. 11.

This is important, as some think Foster might drop out of round one. Jeremiah mocks him to the Saints at No. 11. Rotoworld's Josh Norris has said the 49ers and Packers have shown strong interest, and San Francisco might move up to the end of round one from their early second round pick. Many coaches and evaluators believe Foster is a top two talent in this class.

Ian Rapoport relays talk from three NFL GMs who believe Ohio State CB Gareon Conley will be selected in the third round.

This is the same projection Mike Florio mentioned last night. 24 teams have reportedly reached out to Conley in the hope of acquiring new information. We do not expect Conley to go undrafted, like La'El Collins two years ago.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah brought up the possibility of five running backs being drafted in round one in his latest mock draft.

The five are: Leonard Fournette to the Jaguars at No. 4, Christian McCaffrey to the Chargers at No. 7, Dalvin Cook to the Redskins at No. 17, Alvin Kamara to the Chiefs at No. 27 and Joe Mixon to the Packers at No. 29. We've discussed how much the NFL likes Kamara, and teams could be picking from the running back group in the hopes of landing a playmaker.

Both Bob McGinn and Todd McShay placed UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky as the No. 1 pick to the Browns in their final mock drafts.

"Owner Jimmy Haslam intercedes at the 11th hour, deciding that a future with Cody Kessler and Brock Osweiler is like none at all," McGinn writes. The Browns could absolutely try to move up from No. 12, even to No. 2, in order to land their top two prospects. But that would be incredibly difficult and lead the team to far fewer resources and darts.

Jason Cole reports there is "growing chatter" linking the Jaguars and Clemson QB Deshaun Watson.

Tom Coughlin's influence on the pick cannot be undersold, and if he loves Watson then expect it to be the selection. The Jaguars have been linked to O.J. Howard and Leonard Fournette, but a quality starter at quarterback transcends the position. Watson should be on the board at No. 4, unless the Bears grab him at No. 3.

Profootballtalk cites a league source that says the "current buzz" is Ohio State CB Gareon Conley will get picked before the end of Round 3.

A possible top-10 pick only days ago, Conley's stock has been in a freefall since he was accused of rape by a Cleveland woman earlier this week. This is a fluid situation similar to the La’el Collins affair from a couple years back. Collins, a sure-fire first-rounder, ended up going undrafted. Conley could end up being exonerated. He could also end up being charged and potentially convicted of a first-degree felony. The NFL is working hard to gather information in advance of the beginning of the NFL Draft on Thursday night.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter cited "very smart" sources who think the Browns will select UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky No. 1 overall instead of Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett.

"I continue to hear that Mitchell Trubisky is square in consideration and may turn out to be the No. 1 pick," Schefter said. "Now I know everyone thinks Myles Garrett’s going to be the pick, and I will not be surprised if that’s the case ... But I have got very smart, very well-connected people telling me over the last 24 hours that they think Trubisky’s going to be the No. 1 pick." This would be a true stunner. With the assumption that Cleveland would take Garrett in mind, we didn't understood why Cleveland would let it leak that they were considering taking Trubisky No. 1 overall, since that news would only serve to steal leverage in trade talks if and when they attempted to move up from No. 12. Those reports would begin to make sense if Cleveland actually intended to take Trubisky. Thursday night is going to be a wild ride.

Speaking about Miami QB Brad Kaaya, an anonymous NFL scout told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel: "It sets me back when the coaches are excited he’s leavin’."

It's a surprising sentiment considering that Kaaya started every game he was on campus and left as the Hurricanes’ all-time leading passer. "He’s a mystery guy," another scout said. "Extremely talented but it looks like he’s got dead eyes. He’s like Carson Palmer. I see a guy who holds the ball. Against Virginia Tech he got sacked eight times. Their offensive line wasn’t that bad." Kaaya led this year's QB class in the Wonderlic with a 34. "Hasn’t run the 40," said a third scout. "Said he had a turf toe at pro day. I get the creeps about that kid. He doesn’t extend a lot of plays and he’s not going to hurt you with creativity." NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Kaaya to Browns second-year QB Cody Kessler.
