Arkansas head coach believes senior C Travis Swanson will skyrocket on draft day.

"Ironically, I think he kind of blends the two," Bielema said, referring to Peter Konz and Travis Frederick. "He probably grabs the strengths of both those players and combines them into one. Travis (Swanson) is the most talented player that I've been around at that position... He's long with his arms, plays extremely physical, had 16 knockdowns on Saturday, makes every call up front, run-wise and pass protection." Teams will be sure to focus on the last point, since Arkansas has struggled to keep quarterbacks upright in the pocket.

TCU LB Paul Dawson has visited the San Francisco 49ers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs and has had private workouts for the Bucs and Atlanta Falcons, reports the National Football Post's Aaron Wilson.

We also know Dawson has met with the St. Louis Rams and New Orleans Saints and visited the Vikings. It's of little surprise that Dawson's dance card is full. After all, he is a hyper-productive player whose work ethic has been questioned and who doesn't test well. On the field, we see a destructive defender. Give us Dawson in Round 2 and we'll be happy.

Over the next 12 days, West Virginia WR Kevin White will visit the Jets, Rams, Bears and Giants.

White has had a strange spring. Up until very recently, he had only made one pre-draft visit total, to Tennessee. Over the next few weeks, he's going to be racking up frequent flyer miles like George Clooney. White figures to go anywhere between No. 4 to the Raiders and No. 10 to the Rams. He's been compared to Terrell Owens and Julio Jones.

The Giants have not traded down in any round during Jerry Reese's time as GM, according to Jordan Raanan.

That is amazing. The Giants have only traded up three times and each only six or seven spots. The Giants "believe there are more than enough quality players in every draft, and it's just a matter of locating and landing them. Reese, a scout at heart, always seems to have someone in mind," Raanan writes. We love this philosophy. It is difficult to judge pick value sometimes, especially when targeting certain prospects and not wanting to miss out on selecting them due to a trade.

Arizona State's Damarious Randall is the new top safety on Mike Mayock's rankings, moving ahead of Alabama's Landon Collins.

Per usual, no explanation is given in the article but will be given by Mayock later in the day. We think Mayock is hearing Randall could be the first prospect off the board at the position, especially for teams that are looking for a free safety. Shaq Thompson still ranks as the No. 3 safety.

NFL media's Bucky Brooks spoke with one veteran NFC scout who pointed to USC's Buck Allen, UNI's David Johnson and South Carolina's Mike Davis as this year's "hidden gems" at RB.

We aren't sure how "hidden" these ball carriers are, since one posted a top Combine performance and the other two were starters for their respective big time programs. Still, it is worth pointing out the three prospects are receiving NFL love. We'd highlight Texas' Malcolm Brown (who played in a rotation) and Gus Johnson from Stephen F. Austin as other "gem" candidates.

The Rams are putting Oregon State QB Sean Mannion through a private workout on Friday, according to Ian Rapoport.

The Rams are among the teams that do not possess the top two picks who have expressed interest in quarterbacks via workouts and visits. Mannion recently worked out for the Cowboys. Mannion should not warrant more than a fifth round selection, but watch a team spend that type of selection on him.

The Cowboys put UCLA QB Brett Hundley through a private workout on Thursday, according to Ian Rapoport.

Hundley visited the Cardinals earlier in the week. It seems Hundley has slid behind Bryce Petty in the "consensus" projected draft slots, but it is still possible for both to be second round picks. Which is amazing.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports that it's looking "stronger and stronger" that the Chargers will acquire Tennessee's No. 2 overall pick to select Oregon QB Marcus Mariota, while the Cleveland Plain Dealer anticipates the Browns making a "strong pitch" for the Duck.

Cole's sources say Philip Rivers and San Diego's No. 17 pick would be "just a start" to negotiations. This rumor steadfastly refuses to die, which tells us that the Chargers have purchased a seat at Tennessee's hypothetical auction. San Diego will face competition from four or five other serious suitors, including the Browns, owners of the Nos. 12 and 19 picks. As you know, new Browns' QB coach Kevin O'Connell mentored Mariota before officially signing on in Cleveland. If the Titans commit to Zach Mettenberger, all hell is going to break loose on draft night when they leverage their enviable position into a bounty of picks.

Florida State QB Jameis Winston will face a civil lawsuit from the woman he allegedly raped in December 2012 and Bucs officials say it will have "no effect" on their draft plans.

Tampa Bay's brass no doubt figured this was coming and had already folded it into their evaluations or discarded it altogether. Winston was never charged in the case and won't spend time behind bars because of it, but the story has never gone away and it figures to drag into the future. If you know the details of the case -- which included two former teammates -- that probably doesn't surprise you. Winston comes across as dynamic in interviews and he's been lauded for his on-field intangibles, but teams ignore his off-field transgressions at their own risk. For his part, Winston says that he hasn't changed, but he's "grown," a clever word puzzle that when dissected indicates an absolution from culpability while asserting maturity. You might consider ruminating on whether those two declarations can exist in a vacuum.

Baylor QB Bryce Petty will work out for the St. Louis Rams in Waco, Texas, on Saturday.

Petty makes all sorts of sense for the Rams as a Day 2 developmental investment. The Rams will roll with veteran QB Nick Foles in 2015 and perhaps 2016 as well, which would give Petty a nice parachute as he makes the daunting transition from Baylor's hyper-spread collegiate concepts to the NFL's conservative pro sets. Some think the Rams would take Marcus Mariota if he drops to No. 10, but the odds of that happening are long.

Louisville edge rusher Lorenzo Mauldin will visit the 49ers this week.

Between retirements and defections, the 49ers need front seven fortification. Mauldin would provide a versatile and intriguing option available for a non-premium pick. The 6-foot-4, 240-pounder has been praised throughout the process for having a top-notch attitude and character. "He'll get pegged as a 3-4 rush 'backer, but a 4-3 team could look at him as a situational pass rusher if he is there late second day," said an AFC area scout.
