NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah received text messages from NFL scouts and personnel executives during the LSU versus Georgia game regarding senior QB Zach Mettenberger.

"He didn't come away with the victory, but Mettenberger was the biggest winner in terms of his NFL draft stock," Jeremiah writes. "His combination of size, arm strength and accuracy is very attractive to NFL teams in search of a quarterback." Again, this progression started last year in the Alabama game, but Mettenberger has taken it to the next level this season. His willingness to stand in the face of pressure and fire downfield tops it all off.

UCLA LB Eric Kendricks will visit the Cowboys on April 6, according to Dane Brugler.

Kendricks is an absolute stud, but the Cowboys might not be the first due to their attachment to Sean lee and Anthony Hitchens. Kendricks is aggressive when moving forward to make the tackle, but he is also comfortable and aware ins space. He is a three down linebacker, which is tough to find.

Draft insider Tony Pauline reports Rice CB Bryce Callahan will visit the Bucs, Browns, Titans and Chargers.

Callahan posted a very good pro day workout, running a 4.32 in the 40 and jumping 43.5 inches in the vertical and 11 feet in the broad jump. An East West Shrine attendee, Callahan could be a name who receives more attention in the next month.

Baylor QB Bryce Petty and Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson are second-round picks, according to ESPN's Mel Kiper.

Kiper made the statement on a Thursday conference call, adding the two are competing to be the third quarterback selected. We are shocked it has come to this. Petty is an athletic passer who likes to throw downfield, but that does not mean he is good at it. He did not show the skills to overcome pressure or display comfort when throwing to covered receivers. Grayson has worked through simplified progression and is comfortable inside of structure, but he is limited. neither should be drafted before the third day.

The Cowboys will put Georgia WR Chris Conley and QB Hutson Mason through a private workout this week.

Conley was one of the best performers at the NFL Combine so expect a number of teams to give him a second look in the next month due to Georgia's run first offense. Mason is likely an undrafted free agent, but some evaluators have praised his willingness to stick to the pocket and throw to contested receivers.

UCF WR Breshad Perriman recorded a drop rate of 14 percent during the 2014 season, according to College Football Focus.

Drops are always subjective, but PFF sides on the receiver's side when charting NFL games. As does Rotoworld's Greg Peshek. To come up with the figure, CFF added catches (50) plus drops (8) to find the catchable passes number. Perriman posted a blazing forty time and did his best work on vertical routes. Poor dropped rates carried over from the 2013 season to rookie's first NFL seasons last year. Josh Norris recently mocked Perriman to the Browns at No. 19.

West Virginia's Kevin White is not a lock to be the first or second WR selected, according to NFL Media's Charles Davis.

In trying to come up with reasons why this might be possible, the only one we can come up with is the "one year wonder" label. Davis' statement stood on its own without reasoning, but it was likely a "bold prediction" type question. We guess many teams will look at White and see a receiver who has the potential to win in both the big and small receiver games. That is difficult to find.

Nebraska EDGE Randy Gregory visited the Panthers last week, according to Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport adds Gregory is "unlikely" to make it to pick No. 25, but that was before Gregory revealed he failed the Combine's drug test. Some prospects have "dropped" partially due to a failed test, but it is really impossible to pinpoint where Gregory will be selected this April/May. He has now visited the Panthers and Ravens, who own picks 25 and 26 respectively.

Nebraska edge player Randy Gregory failed the NFL-mandated drug test at the Combine, testing positive for marijuana.

Gregory revealed the information before the tests were "leaked" to the media. "I don't wake up every day saying, I'd really love to go smoke," Gregory told Kimberly Jones. "It's not a struggle for me every day (now), it really isn't. In the past, hell yeah, it's been a struggle. It really has been. Now, I'm focused on my dream." Gregory said he had discussions with every team about his marijuana use. There have been a number of prospects whose draft projection dropped in recent years due to a failed sample at the Combine, and many still went on to have productive careers. It really is a case by case basis.

NFL Media analyst Charles Davis mocked Georgia RB Todd Gurley to the Falcons at No. 8.

"Surprise! Expected choice of a much-needed edge rusher doesn’t materialize," Davis wrote. "When Falcons were at their recent best, Michael Turner ate carries and the offense rolled." As the analyst notes, his mock exercise had Dante Fowler, Randy Gregory, Vic Beasley and Shane Ray off the board by the time it was Atlanta's turn to pick. That would be a nightmare situation for a pass rush badly in need of fortification, though Gurley would be one heck of a consolation prize, even if some think this is a bit early to pull the trigger.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein ranks TCU LB Paul Dawson as the best linebacker in the class.

It should be noted that Zierlein ranked several players who will be listed as linebackers in the NFL -- a group that include Dante Fowler, Vic Beasley, Randy Gregory, Eli Harold and more -- at edge rusher. Even so, this is a strong show of support for Dawson, whose stock took a tumble after a terrible combine. "Outrageously productive linebacker with a nose for the ball," Zierlein wrote. "Dawson averages a tackle every 5.3 snaps and either caused or recovered a total of eight turnovers during the 2014 season. Evaluators understand that Dawson has been a handful while at TCU and that will turn some teams off to him completely. Dawson can play inside in a two-gap scheme but is a natural fit at 4-3 WILL."

UCF WR Breshad Perriman clocked a sensational forty between 4.19 and 4.27, depending on the watch, at the school's pro day, according to NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt.

That is huffing it for a 6-foot-1 3/4, 212-pounder. Officially, the time is being reported as between 4.24 and 4.27. New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert were amongst those taking in the workout. Perriman added a 36 1/2-inch vertical jump, 10-foot-7 broad jump and 18 reps on the bench press. Perriman (32-inch arms and 9 5/8-inch hands) "caught the ball better than expected during his positional workout," Brandt reported. "Some people thought that he didn't have very good hands, but you didn't see that today in his workout. He also showed very good change-of-direction skills. The knock on Perriman is that he is not the hardest-working player, but he helped himself a lot at UCF's pro day and should be a low first-round to high second-round draft choice."
