Georgia OLB Jarvis Jones visited the Bills on Friday.

The team is likely doing their due diligence here, but we doubt Jones is a target with pick No. 8. The Bills will run a more multiple front in 2013, but Jones is strictly a pass rushing outside linebacker, so his fit and versatility might be in question. We like Jones' jump off the snap and motor to work around the edge.

The Cardinals are "sweet on a couple of quarterbacks," namely Derek Carr and AJ McCarron, according to the MMQB's Peter King.

"With coach Bruce Arians’ love of the deep ball, McCarron in round two seems a bit of a reach," King writes. "I will say this about McCarron: He doesn’t have a great deep arm by any standard, but he’s an accurate deep-ball thrower when he does air it out." According to Rotoworld's Greg Peshek, McCarron had the worst adjusted completion percentage (43.24) of passes that traveled 20-plus yards downfield among nine quarterbacks charted. Carr was second worst at 44.23 percent.

The MMQB's Peter King does not expect the Lions to select a TE at No. 10.

"Ebron, the clear top player at the position in this year’s draft, was asked by one team he visited recently who he thought would pick him. 'Detroit,’ he said," writes King. Ebron does not shy away from delivering great quotes and is obviously confident he should be a top 10 selection.

Citing conversations with Bengals coaches, QB Andy Dalton does not believe the team will draft competition at his position.

"From everything they’ve told me, they’re not bringing in anybody to compete," Dalton said. Dalton is in a contract year and is the definition of adequate, in terms of a baseline starter that help a team win and reach the playoffs, but needs to be surrounded by a good amount of talent. Many Bengals fans want to move in a different direction, however, the team could extend Dalton around draft time.

CBS Sports' Pete Prisco tweeted "NFL personnel believe Texans will trade out of top spot."

Prisco suggest The Falcons and Bills as two possibilities to trade up to No. 1 for Jadeveon Clowney, and believes the Rams might be an option "if the offer were right." This report could go hand in hand with Peter King's, which said (via a friend of) Houston GM Rich Smith preferred Khalil Mack over Clowney.

The MMQB's Peter King cites a source close to Rick Smith who say the Texans GM prefers Buffalo edge player Khalil Mack over Jadeveon Clowney.

King adds Auburn tackle Greg Robinson is also a possibility at No. 1. Smith could view Mack as a more diverse player in Romeo Crennel's odd front, which would allow for more versatility on defense. "I still think the Texans would go with a more sure thing with the first overall pick than a quarterback," King notes.

Former scout John Middlekauff has spoken with more and more NFL personnel who view UCLA edge rusher Anthony Barr as a mid to late first-round talent.

"Biggest thing I hear about Barr is he is not violent and is a raw pass rusher - just a big athlete," Middlekauff tweeted, adding he thinks the edge rusher's ceiling is high. This is the same criticism we have been nailing home for weeks. Barr has only spent two seasons on the defensive side of the ball, but he lacks power in his hands and a counter move once his initial momentum is stopped. Barr has been tabbed as a prospect with potential, but few prospects actually reach their peak.

Texas A&M WR Mike Evans compared his playing style to Brandon Marshall's.

"I get a lot of Vincent Jackson comparisons, and that's a great comparison," Evans said. "But I think Brandon Marshall. He's vicious after the catch. A big, physical guy, can go up and get it, blocks real well. So I've modeled my game after him since high school." Evans (6-foot-5, 231 pounds) is bigger than the 6-foot-4, 230-pound Marshall. NFL Media analysts Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks both project Evans to the Buccaneers with the No. 7 overall pick in their mock drafts.

The Browns will "strongly consider" taking Auburn T Greg Robinson with the No. 4 overall pick in next month's draft, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Most mocks are dispersing Cleveland a flashy quarterback (Blakes Bortles or Johnny Manziel) or wide receiver (Sammy Watkins or Mike Evans), but adding Robinson to All-Pro LT Joe Thomas would make the team's offensive line downright scary. Cleveland is reportedly down on Mitchell Schwartz at right tackle and searching for a long-term solution. St. Louis, sitting at No. 2, reportedly likes Robinson as well.

The Falcons had a private meeting with Auburn OT Greg Robinson last week and are likely to host him for a pre-draft visit, reports ESPN's Vaughn McClure.

It doesn't seem likely that the draft's elite OT prospect will be available at No. 6, but the Falcons are willing to trade up, as GM Thomas Dimitroff has been saying since the combine. The Birds, who famously swapped five picks to the Browns in 2011 in order to ascend 21 spots to pluck WR Julio Jones with the No. 6 pick, wouldn't need to pony up that much to jump four slots in a swap with the Rams (No. 2) to get a shot at the Tigers' mauler. Robinson would certainly help a porous offensive line, though Atlanta might prefer a pass rusher.

Clemson WR Sammy Watkins worked out for a private group of Rams' evaluators on campus Friday.

St. Louis had already hosted Watkins for a pre-draft visit. The Rams, it might be worth noting, traveled to West Virginia to scout Tavon Austin last year and sent scouts to Appalachian State for a look at Brian Quick a few springs ago. The Rams own the No. 2 pick, though Rams' GM Les Snead is open for business.

Pittsburgh QB Tom Savage declined the NFL's invitation to attend the draft in New York.

The NFL doesn't invite players to the green room who are expected to get embarrassed. While it still seems a little far fetched that Savage could crack the first round, he's now regularly being mocked at the top of the second. Savage (6-foot-4, 228 pounds) has arguably the draft's strongest arm and is experienced taking snaps from under center.
