NFL insider Mike Freeman tweeted the NFL scouts he speaks with "continue to tee off on" Texas A&M redshirt sophomore QB Johnny Manziel.

Freeman added "holy moly" to the depth of the negative evaluations, with one calling the quarterback a "spoiled b----." Apparently these opinions aren't solely focused on off the field behavior, but also his play on it. Media outlets ate up Manziel's unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against Rice following a teammate's touchdown, and he will only be under the spotlight more as the season goes along. We will likely post reports on opposite ends of the spectrum this draft season, but it might be best for you to make your own opinion of the star quarterback.

QB "guru" George Whitfield said he was told by one NFL source Jameis Winston was "shadowed on a Combine flight" by another team.

Never change, NFL. For real, the NFL thinks they have no limits, critiquing every prospects' "character" like they have been trained for it and pulling off amateur spy tactics like this. There have been other stories of teams wanting to put players in social situations to observe behavior. We wonder how the people making these decisions would react in such situations.

Washington DT Danny Shelton is scheduled to visit the Browns prior to the draft, according to Aaron Wilson.

Many have linked Shelton to the Browns during the process. Phil Taylor is on the final year of his deal, so the fit makes sense from that perspective. Many believe Shelton can help on all three downs, including upfield disruption. We aren't so sure.

Indiana WR Shane Wynn will visit the Raiders and Browns, according to Aaron Wilson.

Wynn recorded a 36-inch vertical and 10-foot broad at his pro day. Both Wilson and Tony Pauline reported times under 4.3 seconds for Wynn's forty. Wynn stands 5'7/167 lbs, so the speed could allow him to find a role and compensate for size.

The Cowboys and Eagles put Utah OL Jeremiah Poutasi through a private workout, according to Tony Pauline.

Poutasi is a powerful blocker who many project to move inside in the NFL. The Utah product has played both tackle spots, and some teams could view that as positional versatility. He tested like a below average athlete.

Stanford T Andrus Peat is scheduled to visit the Jets on Thursday, according to Kimberly A. Martin.

We aren't sure where Peat could be targeted in the draft. He is almost certainly a first-round pick, but No. 6 is not in his projected range. Peat is extremely powerful moving forward in the running game but lacks the same strength in pass protection and gives up a handful of negative plays per game. He will likely stay on the left side in the NFL.

Alabama WR Amari Cooper will visit the Jets on Thursday, according to Kimberly A. Martin.

The move makes a lot of sense even with the Jets' added talent in the last two offseasons. The team took three receivers in last year's draft, but again, that should not prevent a team from selecting a talent like Amari who has traits that easily translate to the NFL. Those types of prospects are difficult to find, especially this year. Cooper wins on the ground with burst, acceleration run after the catch and little wasted movement. He is not a contested catch receiver, however.

The Patriots and Colts privately worked out Memphis CB Bobby McCain last week, according to Aaron Wilson.

McCain, who started for four seasons, will likely be selected on the third day. He tested well above average athletically for corners in this draft and in previous ones. His three-cone time of 6.8 seconds is very good, and the Patriots tend to prioritize that figure at multiple positions. His 20 yard short shuttle is even better.

All eyes will be on FSU QB Jameis Winston at the school's pro day, scheduled to start at 10 a.m. EST. on Tuesday.

The prospect has been working with George Whitfield Jr. "Here's what I expect to see: A big, strong guy who can throw the football," NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock said. "He's got arm strength to make every throw, and in a pair of gym shorts, he'll get under center, he'll go out of shotgun. He's got just enough athletic skills and movement ability to roll right, to roll left." NFL Media's Gil Brandt, a former longtime Dallas Cowboys executive, anticipates an impressive showing due to the scripted nature of the workout. His colleagues agree. "I'll be shocked if Jameis Winston does not have a great pro day," Daniel Jeremiah said. In addition to Winston, scouts will see C Cameron Erving, DT Eddie Goldman, CB P.J. Williams, CB Ronald Darby, WR Rashad Greene, DE Mario Edwards Jr., RB Karlos Williams, TE Nick O'Leary, G Tre' Jackson, G Josue Matias and OL Bobby Hart.

ESPN's Mel Kiper proclaims that UConn CB Byron Jones is "one of the bigger sleepers in this draft."

"The UConn cornerback can broad jump a furlong and is fast and bouncy," Kiper wrote. "He also displays great acceleration when he needs to recover. It would be easy to see Jones' workout footage and peg him as an athlete, but he's actually better at anticipating than simply relying on changing direction without any wasted motion, because his change-of-direction movement is probably the one clear weakness he shows on tape. I think Jones could land at safety depending on the needs of the team that drafts him." Jones is ranked by Scouts Inc. as the class' No. 47 prospect. It no longer seems likely that he'll be available at No. 47.

FSU C Cameron Erving "has Pro Bowl potential if he plays center, and any team that saw his tape from the last half of the 2014 season likely would put him there," ESPN's Mel Kiper believes.

"But he also would have been drafted if he'd simply stayed at left tackle, which speaks to his upside and versatility. If you draft him in Round 1, you can start him at center, but Erving brings extra value if injuries make a mess of your line," Kiper wrote. The analyst sees Erving going at the end of Round 1. Erving struggled at tackle last year, but he was utterly dominant after moving to center.

Georgia WR Chris Conley has visits scheduled with the Eagles and Colts, according to Alex Marvez.

Conley could be viewed as the top athlete at wide receiver in this draft. His exposures were limited in Georgia's offense, so a team might extrapolate off his contested catches and explosion and see a large amount of upside. We have no idea where Conley could be drafted, but third-round seems achievable.
