Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield will not attend the 2018 NFL Draft in Arlington, Texas.

Instead, Mayfield will be with his friends and family. The former Oklahoma quarterback will go from being undrafted to likely a first-round pick, and we'll be watching his process along the way.

Peter King of the MMQB has been told by multiple "NFLers" they expect the Giants to pass on a QB at No. 2 overall.

The goal would be to fill a much bigger need. And just like King, we do not believe it. Dave Gettleman is smart enough to know the goal is to not be in position to have the opportunity to select a quarterback one year from now. Or the next, or the next. Eli Manning is 37 years old. The Giants are not a few pieces away. A forward-thinking decision maker knows this will likely be his only opportunity to pick in the top two.

Alabama DB Minkah Fitzpatrick revealed he is most comfortable as a slot CB.

Fitzpatrick also stated he models his game after Tyrann Mathieu, so a hybrid safety/slot role. This fits in line where Fitzpatrick played at Alabama, as he only spent 13 snaps as an outside corner in 2017, per PFF. This makes Fitzpatrick's discussion quite different than Jalen Ramsey, who starred on the outside. With that said, Fitzpatrick would be on the field for over 60 percent as the snaps as just a slot corner and could be on the field for more if he stayed on the field in two safety sets. Not playing outside corner might limit Fitzpatrick's financial ceiling, but he knows where he wins.

FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman reports that former Miami DL coach Craig Kuligowski will join Alabama's staff.

Kuligowski is expected to become Nick Saban's new DL coach. Kuligowski played for Saban at Toledo. Since then, he's turned into one of the game's best DL coaches, getting rave reviews for his work with Missouri and Miami. He developed five first-round defensive linemen at Mizzou, and his Hurricane unit was incredibly active over the past two seasons.

Miami announced in a press release that DL coach Craig Kuligowski "is leaving the program to pursue other opportunities."

This is disappointing -- Kuligowski is considered one of the top DL coaches in the game -- but not shocking. Kuligowski recently interviewed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for their DL coach opening. He didn't get that job, but perhaps he has his eye on a different position.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes that Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield will be "significantly overdrafted."

Pauline offers the preface that he loves to watch Mayfield play; citing his improvisational skills, and he disagrees with those who cite off-the-field concerns and his cocky attitude. But despite this, he does believe he'll be overdraft. "When I watched him on film, I saw many of the same red flags I witnessed during Senior Bowl practice -- he’s a tough, heady signal caller but has mediocre arm talent," Pauline writes. "Time and time again, receivers who were open in the deep field purposely slowed down their routes awaiting for the ball to arrive. When Mayfield tried to put zip on passes, he was often high of the mark." While these may seem like strong criticisms, there's at least some validity to them, because otherwise he'd be the obvious first-overall selection. It just takes one team to fall in love with his skills, but there's at least a chance that Mayfield could fall down draft boards.

While listing the top candidates to break John Ross's 40-yard dash combine record, Daniel Jeremiah says it's possible that Penn State RB Saquon Barkley will run a time in the 4.3 range.

That obviously wouldn't really challenge Ross for his record (4.22), but it would still be an extremely impressive time considering his frame. "You might think it's crazy to mention Barkley with these other legitimate track stars," Jeremiah writes. "However, Barkley's play speed jumps off the tape and he's reportedly run in the 4.3s at Penn State, despite weighing 230-plus pounds." If Barkley does post a time in that range, it will just solidify the expectations that he'll be off the board in the first five picks.

Jim McElwain has told ESPN's Chris Low that he has joined the Michigan coaching staff.

"I'm excited to get back into it and am looking forward to going there and learning and helping Michigan get better," McElwain told Low. He replaces Dan Enos, who left the Wolverines to join the Alabama coaching staff. Bruce Feldman reported on Friday that McElwain could have offensive coordinator duties as part of his new role. He's been a head coach for both Colorado State and Florida, and he has a career win-loss record of 44-28.

Benjamin Allbright reports that the Bills are trying to trade up into the top ten of this year's draft, presumably to acquire a quarterback.

The Bills have both the 21st and 22nd pick in this year's draft, as they acquired Kansas City's first-round pick last spring in the Patrick Mahomes deal. What quarterback they'd be targeting remains to be seen, but there has been recent speculation tying them to UCLA's Josh Rosen. His arm strength should play fine in the cold wind of Buffalo, and many consider him the most "NFL ready" signal-caller in the class. Stay tuned; we often see trade movement around the combine, and that's just around the corner.

Washington State HC Mike Leach went on SiriusXM radio and stated that he believed both USC QB Sam Darnold and UCLA QB Josh Rosen should have stayed in school.

"I thought they both should have stayed," Leach said on SiriusXM NFL radio. "I think that Rosen measures out better in some areas, the ball he throws is real pretty, but to me it seems like Darnold elevates his team and I think those guys play around him a little better." According to most draft analysts, Darnold and Rosen are the top two quarterback prospects in the class, with Darnold having a chance to be the first-overall pick. The Pirate seems to feel they could have used another year of seasoning.

Transferring Cal redshirt senior RB Tre Watson posted to social media earlier this month that he would be visiting BYU.

Watson (5'10/190) tweeted this out about 10 days ago. It's unclear whether he's taken that trip to BYU or if that'll come at a later date. The Cougars were among the teams that initially recruited Watson when he was a four-star recruit coming out of high school in 2014. While he had his moments with the Golden Bears -- including a 2016 season in which he posted 709 yards rushing -- he was sidelined for the bulk of the 2017 campaign after sustaining a lower-body injury this past September. If there's a team that needs a modestly productive Power 5 back, BYU would fit that bill. They trotted out one of the worst offenses in the country last season.
