NFL insider Mike Freeman is certain Texas A&M redshirt sophomore QB Johnny Manziel won't be on every team's draft board.

We previously wrote that Freeman tweeted his interaction with one NFL scout who called Manziel a "spoiled b----." Another apparently called him the "Terrell Owens of College Football." This recent uproar was triggered by Manziel's celebratory style in the second half of last Saturday's game, but he had the same mentality last year while big time media outlets fawned over him. He's not for everyone, but we are getting to the point of frustration when television commentators breakdown the quarterback's body language on the sideline.

Appearing on the Rich Eisen Show, Miami TE David Njoku said he has an upcoming visit with the Panthers.

The Panthers are interested in adding a tight end for two reasons. One, to add weapons for Cam Newton and possibly run more 12 personnel. And two, select Greg Olsen's eventual replacement. Njoku likely will be a first round selection as the second tight end off the board. He combines size and top end athleticism, testing in the 93rd percentile.

Washington CB Sidney Jones (Achilles) says he's the best corner in the NFL Draft.

Jones was defiant about his NFL future after undergoing successful surgery to repair an Achilles tendon he ruptured at his pro day workout. "I’m the best corner in the draft, plain and simple," Jones said. Following the injury, NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah said he would be surprised if Jones was selected before the third round. Obviously, the prospect, formerly considered a first-rounder, is hoping for better. "I will be playing this season," Jones said. "If you take me, I’m a good investment for your team. A great investment."

Former Florida redshirt junior QB Treon Harris is the heavy favorite to start at Tennessee State.

Harris' battle with incumbent starter O’Shay Ackerman-Carter didn't even reach the summer, as Ackerman-Carter announced his intention to transfer on Monday. Ackerman-Carter had started the previous two years. During his up-and-down Florida career, the 5-foot-11, 190-pound Harris completed 174-of-346 (50.3 percent) passes for 2,695 yards and an 18/10 TD/INT ratio. He also rushed 171 times for 570 yards and three touchdowns.

Texas HC Tom Herman confirmed that the Longhorns are recruiting LSU graduate transfer QB Brandon Harris.

The Horns lost its No. 3 QB when sophomore Matthew Merrick decided to focus on his academics, so they're now shopping for a signal-caller to add to the depth chart next to youngsters Shane Buechele and Sam Ehlinger. "We’ve got two," Herman said after practice Tuesday. "One’s 19 and one’s 18." As for Harris, he’s made two things clear: He wants to start, and he's pinpointed his search to North Carolina and Texas. He'd have a better shot to start at UNC, but Harris also might decide that he wants to try to unseat Buechele. Herman would give him that shot. "We gotta win," Herman said when asked if it wasn't in his best interest to start Bueche or Ehlinger for developmental purposes. "Lost seven games three straight years around here. If a grad transfer is better than those two and can beat them out, then we'll worry about their growth next spring."

When asked why he didn’t start over Marquise Williams, UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky said: "I felt like I won the job."

"I felt like I should have been the quarterback, but Coach [Larry] Fedora, it’s his decision, he did what he thought was best for the team," Trubisky said. "Even though I hated being a backup, as a competitor, I embraced my role. ... We won a lot of games with [Williams] and I thought if I was in there I could have done the same thing and maybe even better." Some see Trubisky's inability to unseat Williams as a red flag, others aren't as concerned by Fedora's deference to the veteran. As Yahoo reminded readers, Tom Brady once had problems beating out Drew Henson. Trubisky told the site that he has workouts scheduled with the Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs and Arizona Cardinals.

Louisiana Tech WR Carlos Henderson met with the San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals and New Orleans Saints earlier this week.

Among others, those three clubs were in town for Henderson's pro day workout. That session was run by Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter. Henderson opted to stand on his NFL Combine testing numbers, which wasn't a surprise after he lit up that event. Henderson's height-weight-speed numbers were comparable to Odell Beckham's.

Knoxville radio host Jimmy Hyams reports that, despite rumors, former Tennessee senior RB Jalen Hurd will not be returning to the Volunteers.

Further, Hyams added this intriguing tidbit: "Don’t be surprised if he enters supplemental draft. I don’t see him sitting a year." Hurd would have to sit out next season if he transfers to another FBS school to satisfy the NCAA's transfer rules. The 6-foot-4, 240-pounder has visited Louisville, Ohio State and California since leaving Tennessee, but he's remained quiet about his future intentions. Stay tuned.

UConn DB Obi Melifonwu has upcoming visits scheduled with the Steelers, Seahawks and Saints, according to the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson.

Melifonwu has also met with the Lions and Panthers over the past 24 hours. Pro Football Focus compares Melifonwu to Seattle Seahawks S Kam Chancellor. NFL Media's Bucky Brooks agrees, noting that the 6-foot-4, 220-pound Melifonwu could "[thrive] in a Kam Chancellor-like role as a pro."

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Miami TE David Njoku visited the Bucs earlier this week.

Our own Josh Norris recently mocked Njoku to the Bucs at pick No. 19 overall, so we would not be surprised by the fit. Njoku would add a new element to the Bucs offense and could dominate the seam or work inline. He is the best tight end in this class after the catch, averaging almost 12 yards per catch in that area. Plus he tested in the 93rd percentile in terms of athleticism.

Saints head coach Sean Payton and other staff members put Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes through a private workout on Tuesday, according to ESPN's Mike Triplett.

Other Texas Tech prospects were involved, but Mahomes is the clear purpose of the event. The Saints have considered drafting Drew Brees' successor in recent years, but 2017 might be the year. The team currently has two first round picks, at No. 11 and No. 32.

ESPN's Todd McShay spoke with one personnel director who compared UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky to Aaron Rodgers coming out of Cal.

Yep. That happened. "The similarities: The quick release, the arm talent and the ability stay in balance while moving his feet," McShay writes, adding time went into Rodgers' development. First round quarterbacks aren't afforded that type of time anymore, but teams with established quarterbacks could be on the lookout in the first round in the hopes of planning for the future. Trubisky could be the first or the fourth quarterback off the board.
