Texas A&M redshirt sophomore QB Johnny Manziel will sign with Houston agency Select Sports Group, reports Inside the League.

That signature, of course, would end his collegiate career. Manziel, who threw for 33 touchdowns and 13 interceptions this season, is a sure first-rounder in May's draft. What's up in the air is whether he'll be a top-10 (or even 5) pick or tumble into the latter stage of the first night.

Vikings beat writer Darren Wolfson believes the team's interest in South Dakota State TE is "genuine."

At pick No. 30, if the Vikings want Goedert they will have to select him with their first pick. Trading out of the first round is absolutely possible. The Vikings have Kyle Rudolph on the roster, as well as a tremendous duo of Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, but Goedert is a star in the redzone.

According to Tony Pauline, Washington DL Vita Vea being drafted by the Redskins is the NFL's "worst kept secret."

Sometimes a prospect who is a constantly linked to a team ultimately is not selected by that club. Vea fits that label. The Redskins must stop the run, and on paper Vea might solve those problems while also making the linebacker group better.

Ohio State C Billy Price's health is "no longer really a question," according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.

Price suffered a pec injury at the NFL Combine. Rapoport adds three centers could be round one picks: Price, James Daniels and Frank Ragnow. We believe the latter two are more likely, with Ragnow a virtual lock.

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield is "definitely" in the conversation at No. 1 overall to the Browns, according to one executive who spoke with Adam Schefter.

We buy it. A few scenarios could be playing out in front of us. One, John Dorsey knows the pick, but is keeping it a secret, especially from Hue Jackson. We all know Hue has friends in the media and leaks information. Second, Dorsey, Jackson, McCloughan, Haley and more could disagree on which passer is the top quarterback in this class. At the end of the day the pick will come down to Dorsey. McCloughan already stated Mayfield is his top quarterback.

The Ringer's Mike Lombardi mentioned on his GM Street Podcast that Georgia RB Sony Michel could slide because of a "medical concern."

"There's a lot of teams telling me there's a medical concern here, so he could slip a little bit," said Lombardi. "His medical grade is a little iffy." Lombardi doesn't say what the medical issue is, because he doesn't know what the medical issue is. Michel is often cited as the second-best running back in the class and the one most likely to go after Penn State's Saquon Barkley. A scout recently told Bob McGinn that he is reminded of Todd Gurley when watching him run, but concerns over his medical report could cause him to slide behind players like LSU's Derrius Guice, San Diego State's Rashaad Penny, or perhaps his teammate at Georgia in Nick Chubb.

A scout told Bob McGinn Football that Penn State RB Saquon Barkley is a "big Barry Sanders."

The full quote: "That dude is built to last. He’s a big Barry Sanders." Another scout told McGinn that Barkley was the "total package" because of his ability to create yards in the run game and also as a receiver. It wasn't all glowing, however, as one scout was curious why Barkley's production as a rusher was so much worse in 2017 than it was in 2016. That scout acknowledges that it likely had something to do with scheming, but it is worth mentioning. Barkley is a lock for the first five selections.

ESPN's Todd McShay reports that the Cleveland Browns will "run the card up" to take either NC State edge-rusher Bradley Chubb or Penn State RB Saquon Barkley with the fourth pick.

McShay also mentions that he's heard that the first pick will be either Josh Allen or Sam Darnold, and that he's heard Allen more often at this point. He also isn't sure which player the Browns would prefer at this point if both are on the board, but notes it would make sense to take Chubb to pair him with 2017 first-overall pick Myles Garrett. One of the two should still be on the board, and either player would be a tremendous help as the Browns try to build something special with their draft-pick capital.

NFL Network's Jane Slater passes along that some members of the Dallas Cowboys organization view Boise State LB Leighton Vander Esch as "Brian Urlacher 2.0."

We've heard the Urlacher comp with Vander Esch from several corners of the internet, ranging from Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline to NFL Media's Lance Zierlein. Looks like the Cowboys are all about that lofty comparison for the 6-foot-4, 256-pounder as well. So much of the attention with Dallas' No. 19 pick comes with the team's opening at receiver following their cutting bait with Dez Bryant, but we're not locking them in for a first-round receiver, especially given the depth of that position group.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport said that he would be "surprised" if the Buffalo Bills trade up to the No. 2 selection currently owned by the New York Giants.

Speaking on 'Good Morning Football' on Monday, Rap Sheet explained that he did see the Bills selling out the farm to move up to the second pick, even though that would mean that Buffalo would miss out on essentially having their pick of the quarterbacking litter (non-Browns division). While Rapoport would be very surprised if the Bills moved all the way to No. 2, they could potentially make a trade up to a lesser slot without mortgaging their draft future. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom has several times voiced the opinion that the Bills would be wise to target Louisville's Lamar Jackson. One benefit of drafting Jackson would be that Buffalo would likely not have to trade up to seal that particular deal.

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.
