Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins will reportedly work out for Panthers WR coach Ricky Proehl on Monday.

It is an interesting development, since Proehl will also put Cal's Keenan Allen through his pro day workout on April 9. We'd be surprised if the Panthers select a receiver with the 14th pick, but many media members have consistently listed the position among the team's top needs.

LSU edge rusher Arden Key believes he'd be a perfect fit with the Raiders.

Key (6'4/238) visited the Raiders recently. "I loved Oakland -- I vibed with them really good," Key said. "It was awesome. I felt at home, I felt comfortable, and as soon as I stepped in the building I felt like I was part of the team. Jon Gruden, he's a high-energy guy. There wasn't a dull moment with him. I also met with the D-coordinator (Paul Guenther) and some other coaches. They teach a lot of the things we did at LSU, so if they draft me, I think I would fit right in." Key has been a busy guy. He also had pre-draft visits with the Bengals, Redskins, Titans, Raiders, 49ers, Bears, Cowboys and Saints. Clearly, teams want to get in front of him and figure out where his head is at. Key is a first-round talent who's going to be available on Day 2 because of his off-field concerns, dedication questions and durability issues.

LSU sophomore S Grant Delpit (collarbone) will undergo surgery Monday morning to repair a broken collarbone.

Delpit sustained a broken collarbone after falling to the turf in Saturday's spring game. He'll reportedly miss 6-8 weeks. That'll have him mended in plenty of time for fall camp. Delpit, a four-star recruit, showed tremendous promise in starting 10 of the 13 games he played in as a true freshman last season. He ranked No. 4 on the Tigers with 60 tackles and No. 4 with nine passes defensed.

The NC State Board of Trustees approved HC Dave Doeren's new five-year contract.

The new pact runs through 2022. It's worth $3 million per year, a pay bump of $800,000 from his previous deal. The Wolfpack tore up the three remaining years on the old deal. Doeren can earn an additional $1.35 million in incentives. It appears that all parties have reached an amicable endgame after Doeren briefly flirted with Tennessee about its coaching vacancy in November. Doeren went 9-4 last season. He's now 34-30 across five seasons with the Wolfpack.

NFL.com reporter Jason La Canfora gets the sense that both Tremaine and Terrell Edmunds will go in the first round.

It's no surprise that Tremaine is going in the first -- he's rated as the top linebacker in this class by many, and he could easily go in the first ten selections. Terrell, on the other hand, is a surprise. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom ranks him the 129th player in this class, which would make him a fourth-round target. La Canfora says that teams "secretly covet" the 6-foot-2, 220-pound safety, and he is considered one of the best athletes in the class. He also has struggled with tackling angles, and his instincts can come into questions. We wonder if a team like the Seahawks could have interest in Edmunds; as they potentially could be down two starters with Kam Chancellor's neck injury and Earl Thomas a possible trade candidate.

Nebraska freshman QB Adrian Martinez completed 10-of-13 passes for 114 yards and a touchdown and ran for 60 yards and three scores during the Nebraska spring game.

It's important to note that the spring game is a controlled scrimmage. It's also important to note that you can't touch the quarterback in the pocket. Combine those two, and it's pretty easy for a quarterback to put up big numbers. That being said, it's an excellent introduction for the freshman signal-caller as he tries to win the starting job. He performed well in the practices leading up to the game as well, so there's a real good chance we'll see the 6-foot-3, 185-pound Martinez under center for the opener against Akron on September 1.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield to former NFL QB Doug Flutie.

Like Flutie, Mayfield also won a Heisman Trophy. Unlike Flutie, Mayfield is going to go in the first-round. Zierlein loves his competitiveness and "fiery" demeanor, and calls the former Sooner signal-caller "accurate on all three levels." He does note his concerns about his size -- a la Flutie -- and he'll need to eliminate his back foot throws. "Mayfield's ability to process, extend plays and throw with accuracy give him a good shot," writes Zierlein. "He'll be somewhat scheme-dependent so whoever takes him will need to be willing to build their offense around his strengths."

Alabama received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 QB Taulia Tagovailoa.

Yes, Tagovailoa is the brother of sophomore QB Tua Tagovailoa, the potential starting quarterback for Alabama in 2018. The younger Tagovailoa was reportedly down to Tennessee and the Crimson Tide, but was also considering Florida, Michigan and Nebraska, among others. He's rated sixth-best "pro style" quarterback on 247 Sports composite rankings, and the eighth best player in the state of Alabama. We could see a Tagovailoa-to-Tagovailoa quarterback run in Tuscaloosa.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Notre Dame G Quenton Nelson to former Dallas Cowboys guard Larry Allen.

Allen is one of the best to have ever played the guard position and was elected to the Hall Of Fame, so yea, Nelson's pretty good. Zierlein calls his power "intimidating," and also lists his pad level, lateral movement and awareness among his many, many strengths. He does note that Nelson will occasionally whiff against long-limb defenders, and that there's room for improvement as a pass blocker. Those critiques aside, Zierlein calls Nelson an "elite" prospect, one who very likely goes in the first ten selections.

Notre Dame received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 T John Olmstead.

Olmstead (6'6/285) picks the Irish over offers from schools like Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State and Wisconsin. He ranks 54th overall in Rivals rankings of the top players in the class. Reports indicate that he's a physical player who can maul in the run game, but will need to work on his footwork in pass protection. A very nice get for Brian Kelly and the Notre Dame class.

NFL Draft Scout's Rob Rang reports that the New York Giants are "leaning heavily" towards taking Penn State RB Saquon Barkley with the second pick.

Rang notes that Giants GM David Gettleman gushed about Barkley on Thursday, saying he's a player "that his mother could have scouted." He also said that the devaluing of running back was "a myth." "If you have a great running back, he immediately makes your quarterback better, your offensive line better and your passing game," he said. Both Rang and fellow NFL Draft Scout writer Dane Brugler project Barkley to go to the Giants. Where there's smoke there's fire, and there's a lot of smoke here.

Ole Miss has received the response to their appeal of sanctions from the NCAA's Committee on Infractions.

Ole Miss sent in their appeal to the governing body in February. While they've now received the NCAA's response, the specifics have not yet been released. Among the sanctions levied which they are trying to reverse, a bowl ban for 2018 as well as a limit on official recruiting visits. The Rebels are attempting to argue that the COI has "abused its discretion" with what's being brought against them as punishment. It should be noted that while the eligibility waiver requested by Michigan QB Shea Patterson very much ties into the alleged shady doings at Ole Miss -- he and other transferring Rebs claim they were misled by former HC Hugh Freeze -- the outcome of this sanctions appeal will not impact the signal-caller's own case one way or another.
