SMU's Margus Hunt checks in over UCLA's Datone Jones in Mike Mayock's 3-4 DE rankings.

Star Lotulelei tops Mayock's rankings at the position, followed by Hunt and Jones. Alabama's Jesse Williams and Michigan State's William Gholston fill out the top five. We appreciate that Mayock separated the prospects among the two positions and feel both players could play the five technique end spot. However, we think Jones is the superior prospect to Margus Hunt, now and in the future.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Florida senior edge rusher CeCe Jefferson underwent surgery on his shoulder earlier this week.

The Gainesville Sun has termed this surgery as "significant," significant enough that it could potentially put Jefferson's availability for the start of the season in jeopardy unless he hits his recovery timetable almost perfectly. Per the Sun, the 6-foot-2, 245-pounder is expected to face about four months of rehab before he'll be healthy enough for football activities. Even if he suffers no setbacks, that would have him coming back in mid-August. Jefferson could have jumped for the draft over the winter, but instead has opted to throw his lot in with new HC Dan Mullen to give it one more run in Gainesville. This past season was the best of his career, as he finished up with 47 tackles (13.5 for loss) and 4.5 sacks. So long as Jefferson is sidelined, Jabari Zuniga, Jachai Polite, Antonneous Clayton and Zachary Carter all figure to see a closer look from Mullen and staff, with the former two players the most likely ones to step up if needed at the start of the 2018 campaign.

The Ringer's Kevin Clark reports that the Cleveland Browns have discussed the possibility of drafting two quarterbacks.

This is not just one little birdie talking to Clark -- he writes that he's spoken to multiple sources within the Browns organization regarding this possibility. There's a huge gap between discussion and end reality, of course, but two quarterbacks to the same team in one draft is not completely beyond the pale. The most recent high-profile example of this came when the Redskins drafted both Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins several years back. Far more fanciful than the possibility of selecting two quarterbacks in the draft as a whole, the possibility of selecting quarterbacks at both the No. 1 and No. 4 picks.

Pro Football Talk's Chris Simms believes Wyoming QB Josh Allen and UCLA QB Josh Rosen have the highest floors among the 2018 QB prospects.

We've heard this with Rosen all along, but the Allen comment caught us off guard. "I have a hard time believing Josh Allen, who has the highest wonderlic score, we've seen him in a pro-style offense... the bust potential is not there." Simms is on an island with this opinion, but it might turn out to be true. Some decision makers in the NFL clearly love Allen, and he has checked the boxes along the way during the draft process.

Draft Insider Tony Pauline passes along word that some believe Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield being drafted by the Jets is a "done deal."

Pauline has been on this path for a long time, and we believe it. The Jets traded up for the No. 3 pick early in the process. Perhaps they have a clear target in mind, and it would make sense if it is Mayfield as he fits the Jets' offense extremely well. We expect this to be a consensus opinion by the time the draft rolls around.

The MMQB's Peter King believes it is unlikely Browns GM John Dorsey reveals his plan with the No. 1 pick until the draft begins.

This was backed up by Chris Simms, saying Dorsey might only tell the owner the night before the draft. It is clear Dorsey wants to keep the selection a secret, but even keeping it from the top ranked executives he brought in from the Packers would be a bit of a surprise. In previous years we've had a firm grasp of who the No. 1 selection would be. That might not be the case this year.

The MMQB's Albert Breer believes UTSA edge rusher Marcus Davenport will be picked in the No. 10 to No. 16 range.

As of now that spans the Raiders to the Ravens. "Some believe he has a higher ceiling than Bradley Chubb," Breer writes. We've mentioned how Davenport changed his body over the years, adding strength and size while keeping his movement skills. His best attribute is his long arm, but questions remain if Davenport can win isolated against top tackles.

Maryland WR D.J. Moore visited the Cowboys, Bills, and Patriots this week.

Moore is one of the top receivers in this class among Alabama's Calvin Ridley and SMU's Courtland Sutton. All three of the teams Moore visited this week have picks in the range of 19-to-23. This seems to be where at least one of the three receivers listed above will be selected but there doesn't seem to be a consensus of which. Moore is a crisp route-runner that posted an athletic composite score in the 97th percentile and has a good chance to be selected in the middle of the first round.

The NCAA has declined to implement a proposed rule change which would allow players appearing in four games to remain eligible for a redshirt.

As the rule currently stands, players are eligible for redshirts only if they've appeared in three or fewer games for a given season. The intent of the proposed change was to allow for some wiggle room with injuries in an attempt to cut down on the number of players who are forced to burn redshirts solely due to their serving as injury replacements late in the season.

SMU WR Courtland Sutton is taking an official predraft visit to the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday.

Tip of the cap to Rotoworld's Josh Norris, here. As soon as the Cowboys opted to release Dez Bryant, draft pundits and fans the world 'round fell over themselves to project Sutton as a future pass-catcher for Dak Prescott. It's a logical enough fit, at least assuming that Dallas would like a similarly-bodied wideout. Dez measures 6-foot-2, 215 pounds, while Sutton has checked out at 6-foot-3, 218 pounds this spring. Adding fuel to this speculation fire, the Cowboys were showing interest in Sutton even before they parted ways with the combative Bryant, with HC Jason Garrett and WR coach Sanjay Lal putting him through his drill paces during his late March pro day. The SMU standout is in play to be the first receiver drafted next week. For reference's sake, the Cowboys own the No. 19 overall pick for Day 1.

Oklahoma RB coach Jay Boulware said that sophomore RB Trey Sermon will be "OK" after sustaining an undisclosed injury during Saturday's spring game.

Sermon (6'1/214) suffered the injury -- speculation has it as a leg issue -- when he was twisted around in a pile during Saturday's scrimmage. He then required some assistance from teammates to leave the field. Looks like he'll survive, though, with Boulware saying, "God worked everything out for him, his family and obviously us, but he first and foremost. He'll be OK." This isn't as specific a medical update as you'd like to see, but at the very least, Oklahoma's staff would seem to be encouraged by his outlook. Sermon rushed for 744 yards (6.1 YPC) and five touchdowns last season while working (ostensibly) as backup to Rodney Anderson. While Anderson has opted to return to Norman for one more season, rather than declare for the draft this winter, Sermon is an integral piece to the Sooners offense in his own right.

NESN's Doug Kyed reports that the New England Patriots are interested in UCLA QB Josh Rosen.

Oh boy. But before this potentially apocalyptic move could happen, two things would need to occur. First, Rosen would need to begin to slide in the draft. That's certainly a possibility, especially if he were to slip past Denver's pick at No. 5. Should that slide take place -- we've seen the quarterback drop in a few mocks -- the Patriots would then need to pull off a trade to move up, likely requiring both their No. 23 and No. 31 picks in the first. And maybe a little extra juice beyond that. NESN's Kyed floats the 49ers at the No. 9 selection as a logical trade partner. Before mass panic sets in over the Patriots owning the NFL for another decade-plus, Kyed does note that while New England is interested in Rosen, the degree of interest, here, is less certain.
