One NFL scout told Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel that if FSU redshirt freshman QB Jameis Winston was eligible, he would be the No. 1 pick in May's draft.

"Rarely, do you see a quarterback at Winston's age who has the combination of size, speed, arm strength and field awareness that he has," the scout said. "He's a bigger, stronger, faster version of (Louisville's) Teddy Bridgewater." We aren't surprised, but we also expect Winston to be nitpicked by some during next year's draft process.

An NFL scout told Bob McGinn Football that Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph reminds him of Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan.

"He’s calm, cool, collected, accurate," the scout noted of Rudolph. He vehemently dismissed any notion that the 6-foot-5, 235-pounder had anything in common with Brandon Weedon outside of the school in which both played their college ball. If that Ryan comp is a bit too lofty, another evaluator who spoke with McGinn Football saw some similarities with Kirk Cousins, which feels more in the ballpark to us. Said that particular scout, "He’s not going to take everybody to the next level but he’s going to do the right thing and be a game manager." There's been recent buzz that the Patriots might be interested in Rudolph. They've been linked to several quarterbacks beyond the Oklahoma State signal-caller, too, with Lamar Jackson and Josh Rosen both batted around in rumor as potential picks for HC Bill Belichick and staff. At this juncture, we would be surprised if New England did not draft a quarterback relatively early when festivities boot up in Dallas later this week.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reports that "some NFL clubs have moved [Florida State edge rusher Josh Sweat' down their draft boards or in the case for some teams completely off the board" due to concerns over his health.

While the 6-foot-4, 251-pound Sweat rocked the NFL Scouting Combine with a composite testing score ranking in the 95th percentile of NFL edge rushers, it would appear that there's still real worry in some corners over his surgically-repaired left knee. Florida State coddled that knee by degrees this past season -- Sweat was not an everyday practice participant -- and Rapoport notes that "not being able to practice every day raises concerns." The Saints, Redskins, Giants and Titans all hosted the edge rusher for predraft visits this spring. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom ranks him as the No. 26 overall prospect in the 2018 class even baking in those health question marks, while Nystrom colleague Josh Norris slots him in slightly more conservatively as the No. 45 overall prospect in the pool.

Ohio State junior RB Antonio Williams transferred to North Carolina.

Williams (5'11/212) enrolled with Ohio State as a four-star running back in the 2016 recruiting class. After playing sparingly as a true freshman, he came on to post 290 rushing yards (5.1 YPC) and three touchdowns while working backup duty behind J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber. Buckeyes RB coach Tony Alford said prior to the team's spring game that Williams had "really, really improved his game from top to bottom" and that he had been been "very professional" about his role in the running backs rotation. He'll have to sit out the 2018 season with North Carolina, but will have two years eligibility remaining come the start of the 2019 campaign.

MMQB's Peter King reports that the Philadelphia Eagles are "seeking a trade" with the No. 32 selection.

Logical enough, as the Eagles are without picks in either the second or third rounds due to past trades they've made with the Browns and Bills. King offers this note in his mock draft released on Monday. He projects the defending champs to select Texas T Connor Williams should they be unable to budge off their spot at the end of the first round. We expect there would be some interest for that draft slot, though.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reports that Louisville QB Lamar Jackson had an official predraft visit with the New England Patriots two weeks ago.

The final official visits to NFL teams took place last Wednesday, but this Jackson trip to the Patriots had been previously unreported. Per Rapoport, New England came away "intrigued and impressed" by their meeting with the dynamic young quarterback. There seems to be much momentum toward Jackson landing as a top-20 pick at this juncture and the Patriots -- sitting at No. 23 -- are in a prime position (should they truly be gunning for the signal-caller) to either wait him out or potentially move up if it becomes clear that they'll need to jump a few teams to procure Jackson's services.

Dan Patrick passes along word from one NFL scout saying the Browns are deciding between Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield and Wyoming QB Josh Allen at the top of the draft.

This is noteworthy since Sam Darnold's name is not even mentioned. Scot McCloughan has been involved in the Browns draft process, and during his media stint stated Mayfield was his top ranked quarterback in this class. Allen's name has been gaining traction at No. 1 overall, although Peter King cited a different source stating Allen would not be the pick for the Browns at No. 1. Buckle up.

After compiling 35-plus boards from media evaluators, Arif Hasan notes UCLA's Josh Rosen is the "consensus" top QB prospect.

Rosen is slotted as the No. 4 overall player. Sam Darnold is the second quarterback at No. 8 overall, Baker Mayfield is third at No. 11 overall and Lamar Jackson is No. 22 and the fourth quarterback. Josh Allen sits at No. 29 overall. Be sure to check out the consensus rankings which are linked below.

Sam Houston State DL P.J. Hall is expected to be a day two pick, according to NFL Media's Mike Garafolo.

Hall drew considerable interest after posting an outstanding pro day workout, visiting a handful of teams. Josh Norris recently projected him in the third round to the Atlanta Falcons. Teams will see an upfield disruptive athlete. Those are important.

The Arizona Cardinals love Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield, according to the MMQB's Peter King.

"The Cardinals don’t like Baker Mayfield. They love him.," King writes after projecting a trade up by the Cardinals. Steve Keim called finding a quarterback the "holy grail" for an NFL franchise, and signing Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon doesn't qualify as that in our opinion. With the Browns and Jets locked in to quarterbacks in the top three, the Cardinals, Bills and Broncos could all be interested in drafting a quarterback, as well as the Saints, Chargers and Patriots.

The MMQB's Peter King spoke to "someone I trust, who is very often right and is very well-connected" who stated Wyoming QB Josh Allen will not be the pick at No. 1.

As King notes, we are all prisoners to connections and buzz when it comes to mock drafting. King previously mentioned an Allen to Cleveland connection, as did Daniel Jeremiah and others. Also in that time frame, Jeremiah wrote in marker that Darnold would be the No. 1 pick, as did Bucky Brooks and Joel Klatt. It is the Monday of draft week, and we might not know who will be the first selection until Thursday evening.

LSU edge rusher Arden Key believes he'd be a perfect fit with the Raiders.

Key (6'4/238) visited the Raiders recently. "I loved Oakland -- I vibed with them really good," Key said. "It was awesome. I felt at home, I felt comfortable, and as soon as I stepped in the building I felt like I was part of the team. Jon Gruden, he's a high-energy guy. There wasn't a dull moment with him. I also met with the D-coordinator (Paul Guenther) and some other coaches. They teach a lot of the things we did at LSU, so if they draft me, I think I would fit right in." Key has been a busy guy. He also had pre-draft visits with the Bengals, Redskins, Titans, Raiders, 49ers, Bears, Cowboys and Saints. Clearly, teams want to get in front of him and figure out where his head is at. Key is a first-round talent who's going to be available on Day 2 because of his off-field concerns, dedication questions and durability issues.
