ESPN's Joe Schad tweeted former Oklahoma State sophomore QB Wes Lunt's transfer decision could be made on Monday or Tuesday.

Schad added Lunt's choice will not be televised. The final two possibilities appear to be Louisville and Illinois, with the latter seemingly the favorite. However, since the decision wasn't immediate, it is tough to discount Louisville's chances.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky is "still under serious consideration by the Browns at No. 1."

Talk of Trubisky to the Browns at No. 1 simply refuses to die. These rumblings kicked off in earnest on April 11, when ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that there were "split opinions" as to whether to select Myles Garrett -- viewed as close to a consensus No. 1 throughout the process -- or Trubisky. Earlier this week, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora dumped even more fuel on this divided fire, passing along word that Hue Jackson and the Browns' coaching staff was "all in" on Garrett, but that the front office was leaning toward Trubisky. With the Cleveland Plain Dealer's fresh report that Trubisky remains in play for the Browns at No. 1, it is becoming increasingly difficult to just dismiss this as idle talk. We still ultimately think that Browns will take Garrett. One other note from Cabot's report -- she was told "don't be surprised" if the 49ers select Trubisky at No. 2, something that the Browns are almost certainly factoring into their decision.

Washington WR John Ross' agent, Brad Cicala, released a statement detailing his client's injury history.

Cicala released his statement after NFL Network's Mike Mayock reported on Friday that several teams were scrubbing Ross from their draft boards due to concerns over his health and durability. Said Cicala in the statement, "Despite recent reports, John Ross III has never sustained 2 ACL injury’s nor has he had 2 ACL surgeries. In January of 2015 he endured surgery on his right lateral meniscus and in April of 2015 he had surgery on his left ACL." He went on to say that Ross is ahead of schedule in his recovery from the shoulder surgery which he underwent following the Combine and will be healthy for training camps. Cicala also included this rather pertinent note: "I have confirmed with numerous NFL teams that John’s recent medical rechecks have come back positive." Ross is a top-20 possibility come Day 1 of the draft on Thursday.

NFL Network's Charley Casserly hears from an NFL general manager that two quarterbacks will be drafted before the Bills pick at No. 10.

"Two quarterbacks in the top nine. That'd be a shocker," Casserly said. We would be shocked by the rumor, but seeing quarterbacks pushed up the board is nothing new. Perhaps the most tangible part of Casserly's little nugget is that the Bills -- whom met with Deshaun Watson on Friday and have been linked to him by multiple reports throughout the offseason -- might have to maneuver if they are truly coveting the Clemson star. We expect Watson and UNC's Mitchell Trubisky to be the first two quarterbacks selected in one order or another.

Washington junior QB Jake Browning (shoulder) has been throwing without pain this spring.

Browning is on the mend from right shoulder surgery which he underwent following Washington's Playoff loss to Alabama. The 6-foot-2, 206-pounder initially injured his wing in a win over Arizona State on November 19. He indicated that his current goal is to rebuild the strength in that shoulder. All signs point toward him being a go for August camp. Browning figures to land squarely in the 2017 Heisman conversation if healthy. He threw for 3,430 yards and 43 touchdowns this past season.

Illinois HC Lovie Smith named junior QB Chayce Crouch the team's starter for 2017.

No waiting around for Smith and the Illini, here. Said Lovie of Crouch, who will replace the departed Wes Lunt, "He's our starting quarterback, undisputed leader of our team. I can't wait to get him back out there." The "back out there" portion of the equation is in relation to the 6-foot-4, 225-pound junior's recovery from season-ending shoulder surgery which he underwent near the end of October. Crouch did not take contact this spring, but has been medically cleared and should be ready to assume his spot atop the depth chart come the start of August camp. Prior to going down injured last season, Crouch had completed 18-of-32 passes for 249 yards and a 1/1 TD/INT ratio over the course of four games played.

Houston Texans GM Rick Smith said that the team does not feel pressure to select a quarterback at No. 25.

"I don't feel pressure. At some point, we're going to add a quarterback," Smith said, adding (very rightly) that "[i]t's difficult to play quarterback as a rookie in this league." Smith's comments would seem to echo a report from Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline earlier this week, when Pauline wrote that according to little birdies "close to the organization" quarterback is not truly on the radar for Houston at pick No. 25, as the team is apparently comfortable with trotting Tom Savage out there in 2017 while in a (perhaps fatally-flawed) win-now mode. The offshoot of Smith's comments is that it at least sounds like they could add a quarterback later in the draft even if they don't pull the trigger on the position with their first-round selection.

While speaking on a conference call on Friday, NFL Network's Mike Mayock said that Alabama LB Reuben Foster "still might be a top-10 pick."

Draft pundits near and far are in scramble mode as they try to assess how news of Foster's failed Combine drug test on a diluted sample might affect his stock. Said Mayock, "I don't see him sliding all that far. I think he's a top-20 pick all day long in any draft. Could he have been a top-10 pick? He still might be a top-10 pick." Mayock also offered a little insight on Foster's boot from the Combine for his confrontation with a hospital worker, calling it "way overdone" and saying that "I think the [C]ombine incident has been wiped clean by almost every team." Mayock refers to the 6-foot-1, 240-pounder as "a top-20 pick all day long," but not all pundits are so convinced that Foster is still in play for the top-10 -- or even the first round. The Ringer's Michael Lombardi tweeted earlier on Friday that he believes that Foster will be on the board come the start of the second round.

Western Michigan WR Corey Davis (ankle) went through a workout with veteran WR coach Jerry Sullivan on Friday, who relayed to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that Davis "didn't have any limp."

Davis has mostly been a been bystander during the draft process due to a minor ankle surgery he underwent in February. Sullivan told Rapoport that in Friday's workout, "I thought he was very explosive, even on his foot. Remember, he hasn't really done much in three and a half months." Sullivan additionally said that Davis is probably about 75% of the way back to full health. There has been talk of the 6-foot-3, 215-pounder slipping to Round 2, but we think he still has a solid chance of landing on Day 1 next Thursday, when he will jostle with Mike Williams and John Ross for the privilege of being the first receiver off the board.

Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon reached a settlement agreement in the civil suit for his punching Amelia Molitor in the summer of 2014.

"From our private discussions I am satisfied that we are going to put this behind us and work towards helping others who may have found themselves in similar circumstances," Molitor said. She added that, "I’m finished talking about what happened that night with Joe. It’s time to move on from that. I wish Joe the best of luck in his future." For all intents and purposes, this settlement puts the troubling incident in Mixon's mirror (at least legally), though he may still have to face the professional consequences come the draft next week. Even his draft outlook is looking relatively solid at this juncture, though, as the general consensus has gradually swung toward Mixon as a potential Round 2 selection.

Michigan State dismissed sophomore DE Auston Robertson after he was charged with criminal sexual assault.

In a statement, Spartans HC Mark Dantonio said, "Sexual assault has no place in our community. While there is an ongoing criminal process, we’re extremely disappointed that Auston put himself in this position. He is no longer a member of our football program." The 6-foot-4, 262-pounder was a four-star recruit for the 2016 cycle, but arrived with his fair share of previous baggage, having been arrested on a battery charge during his senior year of high school. Michigan State ultimately signed him in March of 2016 (rather than on National Signing Day) after a vetting process.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that NFL teams are reviewing Ohio State S Malik Hooker's medical info.

Rap Sheet wrote that there are no questions about Hooker's NFL Combine recheck, which "went as well as it could" and showed healing of the labrum he underwent surgery on in January. Assuming the medical coast is clear, expect Hooker to go in the top-10.
