Scouts Inc.'s Steve Muench drew a comparison between Arizona junior Rb Ka'Deem Carey and Bengals rookie Gio Bernard.

Muench starts by saying there "are no cookie cutters when it comes to NFL prospects," but the two compare favorably. "Like Bernard, he’s not a powerhouse who's going to consistently drag defenders for extra yards... but Carey, too, is a hard-nosed competitor who runs hard and finishes better than you’d expect for a back with his frame," Muench writes. In terms of receiving ability, the evaluator believes Carey could be a better pass catcher in the NFL than he is in college,

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora keeps hearing "from evaluators who know what they hell they are doing" that Louisville WR DeVante Parker is the "second-best receiver in the draft."

"Some think the gap between him and Amari Cooper isn't exactly massive," La Canfora further added. "Not saying he is the second one taken -- Kevin White's measurables probably still make him second to Cooper, but could be more interesting than some think." In a study of numbers, Parker disappoints. A football analytics director recently agreed with Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score projection -- which called Parker the No. 9 WR -- that Parker should have been more productive in college. "It is hard to see him living up to this rating," the director said, referencing Mel Kiper's No. 9 overall grade. That said, Parker's catch radius is as large as a black hole. We're fans.

The Seattle Seahawks would "love to grab" Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham if he’s available at No. 63, reports TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

At least Seattle is being realistic, as "they expect the receiver to be off the board during the initial fifteen picks of round two." DGB has taken all sorts of character shots this offseason, but we were interested in a recent Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report that stated the Oklahoma staff "vouches" for and "loved" Green-Beckham.

Texas A&M T Cedric Ogbuehi has dealt with "back issues his whole career," according to an anonymous scout.

"Just during games you'd see him stretching, and in practice he was always doing some maintenance on the back. There's got to be some legitimate concerns about the back," the scout concluded. A previous quote in early March from a scout, also via McGinn, stated Ogbuehi rarely practiced due to always being hurt. The athletic left tackle is coming off an ACL injury sustained in the school's bowl game but is on track to help in year one.

One scout who spoke with Bob McGinn compared South Carolina G A.J. Cann to Larry Warford and Chance Warmack.

"He'll need a little work in pass pro. He's a little bit shorter and a little bit slow-footed," the scout added. Cann could be selected as early ad picks No. 31 and 32, but most likely will be a second round selection. Just speaking of personal preference, we graded both Warmack and Warford as superior prospects out of school.

One scout described Stanford T Andrus Peat a "beautiful athlete" when speaking with Bob McGinn.

With so much negativity surrounding the evaluation of draft prospects, we wanted to pass along praise for the pear shaped offensive lineman. "So smooth. Really impressive physically. I compared him to Tyron Smith," the scout added. All evaluators do not share this sentiment, as another scout told McGinn "every defensive player I saw against Stanford kicked the (expletive) out of the guy." We think Peat will be drafted as the first true tackle next Thursday.

LSU CB Jalen Collins failed multiple drug tests during his college career, according to Albert Breer.

Breer cites four team sources. Collins only started 10 games during his tenure at LSU, so some could view Collins as an unknown commodity. We doubt he is selected in the first round. Teams will like his length and long speed, likely in the second round.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline has heard of a scenario where the Patriots trade down from the 32nd pick to take South Carolina G A.J. Cann.

"This would fill a big need at guard for the team," Pauline wrote. "I’ve been skeptical of Cann’s movement skills but was told the big offensive lineman, who has been struggling with a calf strain since the end of the season, worked out for several teams on Monday and ran both the short shuttle and 3 cone at the request of coaches." Cann clocked an outstanding 4.51 in the short shuttle and a great 7.37 in the 3-cone. Only Jake Fisher and Ali Marpet posted better times at the combine amongst offensive lineman.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that "more than a dozen teams in fact rank [Oregon State QB Sean Mannion] number three on their quarterback board."

We're sure Mannion is a swell dude, and we're sorry to be so consistently negative when writing about him, but we just threw up a little bit in our mouths. Pauline, checking into Rotoworld's blurb via a Charles Robinson report that Mannion was rated as the No. 3 QB prospect by some, found out that the original dispatch wasn't as shocking as reality by half. We bag on Mannion for his immobility, his tendency to get flustered under pressure and his downright mediocrity in the three seasons Brandin Cooks wasn't destroying the Pac-12, but this report is potentially outstanding news for teams hoping Bryce Petty or Brett Hundley will drop to Round 3. We still have no idea how the QB class will shake out after Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota. Mannion, by the way, recently worked out for the Rams and Cowboys.

Alabama WR Amari Cooper visited 10 teams who hold picks in the top 12, per Aaron Wilson.

Those 10 teams include the Buccaneers, Titans, Jaguars, Redskins, Jets, Bears, Falcons, Giants, Rams and Browns. The two in the top 12 who did not bring Cooper in were the Raiders and Vikings. Many have mocked Cooper to the Raiders, including us. Amari will not be waiting long on draft day.

NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport reports that Pitt T T.J. Clemmings discovered that he had a stress fracture in his foot during a team visit.

"Pitt OT TJ Clemmings had a stress fracture in his foot discovered on a team visit, sources says. He didn’t feel pain, didn’t know it existed," Rapoport tweeted. Bad timing for the Pitt prospect, as the stress fracture could cause him to slide a bit in the draft. The 6-foot-5, 310-pound Clemmings has been gaining interest from teams selecting in the back end of the first.

Ohio State WR Devin Smith visited the Cowboys, Dolphins, 49ers, Saints and Panthers, according to Aaron Wilson.

All of these names are fascinating, especially the Panthers and Cowboys at the end of round one. We doubt Smith ends up in the first round unless it is with the Baltimore Ravens, but Smith won't be waiting long in the second round. Smith is a role player right now, purely a vertical threat who succeeds at the catch point. But the question is if he can expand his game beyond that.
