Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay included four QBs in the top six picks in his first mock draft of the season.

Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater was mocked No. 1 to the Texans, UCF's Blake Bortles to the Raiders at No. 3, Johnny Manziel to the Jaguars at No. 4, and Derek Carr to the Browns at No. 6. "I think the key for Manziel is going to be how he interviews," McShay said. "Some teams are going to fall in love with his confidence, whereas others will be turned off by him." No other quarterbacks were slotted in the first-round.

NFL Media's Mike Mayock believes Miami senior LB Denzel Perryman "is a first-round inside linebacker if he runs well at the combine."

Perryman did not play in Saturday's game due to an abdominal injury he suffered earlier in the week, but analysts did get to see plenty of him in practice. He has drawn comparisons to former Badger Chris Borland -- drafted in the third round by the Dolphins -- though NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah believes Perryman will be drafted higher than Borland was. Perryman possesses a stocky 6-foot, 243-pound frame. We've heard he runs a 4.72 forty, though the combine will be the final arbiter of that.

Michigan has flipped the commitment of four-star high school QB recruit Zach Gentry from Texas.

Jim Harbaugh is already working. Gentry is a 6'6/230 pounds pro-style quarterback out of New Mexico and flipped his commitment while on a recruiting trip at Michigan. He is the first commitment Harbaugh has received since taking over the job.

Former TCU DE Devonte Fields is visiting Louisville today and the Cardinals are in the lead to land the transfer, according to Max Olson.

Fields played a number of games for Trinity Valley Community College this year, but his effort was spotty according to eye witness reporter accounts via Sports Illustrated. Fields, in fact, said it was difficult to stay motivated. The edge rusher's freshman season was outstanding at TCU, but he has since dealt with injuries and off-field transgressions. Louisville loves to give second chances.

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota sprained the AC joint in his throwing shoulder in the school's loss to Ohio State.

"Right now we're still making that decision, whether to throw at the combine. I had to kinda rest about a week-and-a-half," Mariota said. He is already able to throw, but many quarterbacks do not throw at the Combine regardless of health. This could also be a reason why Mariota did not attend the Senior Bowl, which he was eligible for.

During a celebration at Ohio Stadium to celebrate Ohio State’s title, OSU senior QB Braxton Miller said "we've got another year to do it," which some are taking as an indication he will return to campus this fall.

"Privilege and honor to be part of this team," Miller told fans. "Guess what, we've got another year to do it. So go Bucks." Miller enrolled for the spring semester at OSU, another indication that he seems to be leaning towards returning to Columbus. Miller won't participate in spring practice due to a shoulder injury. When he returns -- if he returns -- the preseason battle between Miller, J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones for the starting gig will be perhaps the most epic in the history of college football. It's important to note that Miller could transfer and play immediately in 2015 as a graduate transfer. This story isn't over yet.

Ohio State redshirt sophomore QB Cardale Jones could have been drafted as high as the top 10-15 if he'd opted early into the draft, an NFL team executive told Fox Sports.

"Maybe he would have gone in the second round," the executive told foxsports.com, "but I think it's just as likely (he) could have gone in the top 10 or 15. Look at that body, that arm -- and look at his competition (in the draft)." A different source told Fox that Jones can develop more effectively in college this coming season. "In a way I'm glad he (returned). He needs reps, even spring reps. He needs time," the source said. "The problem with the NFL is it would take a unique situation for a team to draft him and not feel the pressure to play him next year, probably before he's ready." Jones himself told Sports Illustrated that he had an opportunity "to be picked in the second or third round of the 2015 draft," while two NFL sources speaking with CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd said his draft ceiling would have been Round 4 had he entered. We think the 6-foot-5, 250-pound Jones probably would have ended up going on Day 2.

NFL Media analyst Charles Davis wrote that the "word is out that teams are intrigued" by Utah redshirt senior edge rusher Nate Orchard.

"Orchard entered the week looking to answer questions about whether he has the traits to play as an outside linebacker after playing with his hand in the ground at Utah," Davis wrote. "I think he proved he can make the transition to standing up. He can rush the passer and is stronger than you would think -- his bull rush surprised people. I saw him walk some offensive linemen back to the quarterback using his bull rush. One NFL executive asked me to please not tell anyone that his team really likes the former Utes star. His secret is safe, but word is out that teams are intrigued by Orchard." The Utes prospect recorded 84 tackles including 21.5 tackles for loss and 18.5 sacks in 2014. NFL Media Analyst Bucky Brooks believes that Orchard is "is viewed as a bit of a "one-year wonder" following his remarkable spike in production as a senior.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes UCLA redshirt senior edge rusher Owamagbe Odighizuwa "should be in [the] 1st round conversation."

"After Carl Davis no defender has helped themselves this week more than Odighizuwa," the analyst wrote. The 6-foot-3, 270-pounder is scheme versatile, and would fit comfortably in either a 4-3 or a 3-4. Odighizuwa "has the traits to be a NFL starter if he stays healthy and builds off the momentum he showed as a senior," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler recently wrote. Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris wrote that Odighizuwa "has an awesome first snap but limited bend."

Washington senior DT Danny Shelton told ESPN's James Walker that he fist pumped on the scale earlier this week at the Senior Bowl because he had ballooned to 360 in early January.

Shelton stepped the scales Tuesday and weighed in at 342 pounds. "I’ve been training really hard," Shelton said. "I’m on a nutritional diet and so it’s looking good for me." Shelton looks like no worse than a top-15 pick at the moment. "[Shelton] was hard to move in the middle and did a good job shedding blockers [in practices]," Walker wrote. "He showed very good strength and moved well to the football in team and individual drills."

Alabama senior FB Jalston Fowler "will run defenders over as a lead blocker," wrote NFL Media analyst Charles Davis.

"He also is dependable carrying the ball, not that he's asked to do so often, and has good hands to catch the ball out of the backfield," Davis wrote. "He reminds me a bit of former 49ers fullback Tom Rathman. One NFL executive told me Fowler would be a Day 1 starter for any team that still utilizes a fullback." The 5-foot-11, 264-pounder didn't get many opportunities to touch the ball at Alabama, but he made life easier for a host of stud offensive teammates. Fowler also has experience at H-Back.

NFL Media analyst Charles Davis reported that a poll of defensive backs at the Senior Bowl revealed Duke senior WR Jamison Crowder was the hardest receiver to cover.

"I knew coming into this week that Crowder was an elite kick and punt returner, and the team that drafts him can count on him to deliver in that way from the jump. However, he also is a great route runner and has good hands," Davis wrote. "Crowder is well-schooled in the passing game coming from Duke, where he was coached by David Cutcliffe. He's built more like a slot receiver at 5-foot-8, 174 pounds, and he's probably best-suited to play inside." The 5-foot-8, 174-pound Crowder has drawn comparisons to Saints' 2014 first-round pick Brandin Cooks and Steelers' Pro Bowl WR Antonio Brown.
