Draft insider Tony Pauline noted grades from NFL evaluators on Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas range from the second-round to the fifth-round.

"I get the idea there’s a general feeling teams really wanting to like Thomas," Pauline adds. "He has the physical skills teams desire and many point to constant coordinator changes at Virginia Tech as a major problem in the development of Thomas." The Hokie is not a good quarterback right now, but upside is an obsession, especially compared to prospects at the position who might be limited. We expect Thomas to be selected in the third- or fourth-round.

The Browns will select Texas A&M EDGE Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Cabot cites "multiple league sources." Rumors have swirled over the past 24 hours that the Browns would audible off Garrett to take UNC's Mitch Trubisky at No. 1. Numerous plugged-in draft writers (Mel Kiper, Todd McShay and Bob McGinn, to name three) predicted just that in their final mock drafts. While it might appear that cooler heads have prevailed here, Cabot wrote that "some [in the Browns' brass] have known for a while that Garrett was the pick." The Browns are currently trying to trade back into the top-10, from No. 12, to acquire Trubisky. Between the No. 33 overall pick (the first in Round 2) and three second-round picks in 2018, Cleveland has plenty of trade ammunition.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that some teams believe that Washington WR John Ross may slip to the second round due to health concerns.

Per Rap Sheet, "There are a handful of boards [Ross] is off, sources say. Other teams wonder if he'll fall into the late-first round or early second round because of his injury history." The 5-foot-11, 188-pound speedster has undergone surgeries on both knees due to a torn miniscus and a torn ACL and also underwent shoulder surgery following the Combine last month. One person close to Ross' camp told Rapoport that "there is nothing new that has showed up" during the process, though that might not prevent a potential slip down.

An NFL GM told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey "had the best combine workout I've seen. Ever."

McCaffrey has a great collection of tape, but it took him proving his other-worldly athleticism at the Combine for the NFL to start viewing him like an elite prospect. Profootballtalk has pegged his projection range anywhere from No. 5-15.

According to NFL.com's Lance Zierlein, Texas A&M DE Daeshon Hall is "being targeted within the first two rounds and might end up inside the top 40."

The media has generally pegged Myles Garrett's running mate between Rounds 3-4. Interestingly, an AFC scout foretold this scenario in a conversation with NFL Media in October. "I know (Myles) Garrett is the big-name guy but Daeshon Hall is a name that is going to get hot," he said. "I didn't think he had starting potential when he was an outside 'backer. Now that he's bigger and stronger and playing with his hand down, I think he's a different player. I see him as a second-day (Rounds 2-3) guy."

MMQB's Peter King reports that Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon as "garnered the most interest" from Cincinnati, Minnesota, Green Bay and Jacksonville.

"I won’t be surprised to see the Bengals take Mixon with the 41st overall pick," King added. "Owner Mike Brown has taken chances in the past on players with off-field issues, leaving it to the coaching staff to keep those players in line." Each of these teams has hosted Mixon for a visit. If Mixon is to sneak into Rd. 1, Green Bay, picking near the end of Thursday night's festivities, looks to be his best shot.

ESPN analysts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay both have UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky going No. 1 to the Browns in their final mock drafts.

So does the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Bob McGinn. All three are extremely plugged-in within league circles. "The thinking is the Browns get antsy about Trubisky being available at No. 12 and don't find any takers to trade up," Kiper wrote. "Could Cleveland ownership get involved and insist on a QB here?" Adding to all this, the Las Vegas odds on Trubisky going No. 1 have fallen from 6-to-1 on Wednesday all the way to 2-to-1 on Thursday, while Myles Garrett's odds have dropped from -800 to -350.

Clemson QB Deshaun Watson says it would be a "slap in the face" if UNC's Mitch Trubisky is drafted ahead of him.

Watson argued that his "championship résumé" is what separates him from Trubisky. While Watson was the superior player in college, the NFL prefers Trubisky's raw tools. The odds are high that Watson will feel disrespected on Thursday night.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah says a number of teams are targeting Alabama LB Reuben Foster around pick No. 11.

This is important, as some think Foster might drop out of round one. Jeremiah mocks him to the Saints at No. 11. Rotoworld's Josh Norris has said the 49ers and Packers have shown strong interest, and San Francisco might move up to the end of round one from their early second round pick. Many coaches and evaluators believe Foster is a top two talent in this class.

Ian Rapoport relays talk from three NFL GMs who believe Ohio State CB Gareon Conley will be selected in the third round.

This is the same projection Mike Florio mentioned last night. 24 teams have reportedly reached out to Conley in the hope of acquiring new information. We do not expect Conley to go undrafted, like La'El Collins two years ago.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah brought up the possibility of five running backs being drafted in round one in his latest mock draft.

The five are: Leonard Fournette to the Jaguars at No. 4, Christian McCaffrey to the Chargers at No. 7, Dalvin Cook to the Redskins at No. 17, Alvin Kamara to the Chiefs at No. 27 and Joe Mixon to the Packers at No. 29. We've discussed how much the NFL likes Kamara, and teams could be picking from the running back group in the hopes of landing a playmaker.

Both Bob McGinn and Todd McShay placed UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky as the No. 1 pick to the Browns in their final mock drafts.

"Owner Jimmy Haslam intercedes at the 11th hour, deciding that a future with Cody Kessler and Brock Osweiler is like none at all," McGinn writes. The Browns could absolutely try to move up from No. 12, even to No. 2, in order to land their top two prospects. But that would be incredibly difficult and lead the team to far fewer resources and darts.
