Local Buffalo media member Sal Capaccio tweeted that he has been told the Bills remain "fairly high" on NC State QB Mike Glennon.

Capaccio went on to note that this "doesn't mean they are 'in love' or will target him... but they have liked him for a while and still have him higher than most would tend to think." The Bills have been linked to almost every single quarterback prospect, and the only obvious move seems to be that they will select at least one.

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.

Former Bucs GM and current ESPN analyst Mark Dominik said Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater's stock started to fall long before his lackluster pro day.

"There were things you saw on tape when you watched him," said Dominik, who did so as an employed general manager. "Something that scouts internally, we talked about it in Tampa with Teddy Bridgewater last year. Is he really the premiere quarterback? I like the young man, I think he's a quality individual, he's got character and leadership and those things. But this is a quarterback, and you're judged by what quarterback you draft, and I think Teddy Bridgewater might not have all the pieces you're looking for." Dominik isn't the only former NFL boss down on the Cardinals' star. Former Browns' GM Phil Savage said on Thursday: "I think the media has Teddy Bridgewater in the top 10, but around league circles he's more like a late first, early second-round pick."

ESPN's Louis Riddick notes that North Dakota State OL Billy Turner has made "huge improvements this off-season" to his technique.

Riddick mentioned Turner while making a bigger point about how problematic it can be for decision makers to see great workouts from draft prospects that might show better than the game tape. "Given the info that teams have on players that goes well beyond film eval, nothing should surprise when player value 'fluctuates,'" Riddick wrote. It's a good report to hear about Turner, a mauler who needed refinement. That he's already displaying it is great for his draft stock. Whether he can transfer those gains to the field remains to be seen, of course.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl and Steve Muench said during a "NFL Draft Blitz" segment that Virginia T Morgan Moses is a "sleeper franchise left tackle."

"I think he's going to go pretty quick in that first round," Weidl said. Muench agreed, and pointed to Moses' work against GTU's Jeremiah Attaochu as evidence: While the explosive Attaochu abused Virgina's right tackle, whenever the Yellow Jackets' star lined up over Moses he was erased. Scouts Inc. draft guru Todd McShay moved Moses up to No. 14 overall earlier this month, and NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock is a known fan. His stock is rising.
