Clemson WR Sammy Watkins compared his game to Torrey Smith.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris has made the same comparison for some time, but adding that Watkins has some ball carrying skills similar to Cordarrelle Patterson. Smith is a different player now than he was coming out of Maryland, but his best trait is still stretching the field vertically. Watkins has the skills to do this and flashed it at Clemson, despite screens accounting for more than 55 percent of his catches in 2013.

Vikings selected Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell with the No. 23 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Treadwell (6'2/221) needed only three years at Ole Miss to set a school record for receptions (202), parlaying them into 2,393 yards (11.8 YPR) and 21 career TDs. He was a first-team All-SEC pick as a 2015 junior. Treadwell won't turn 21 until a month and a half after the draft and offers room for growth despite unimpressive workout metrics, running 4.64 with a 33 1/2-inch vertical. Rather than speed and athleticism, Treadwell wins with length, body control, ball skills, and physicality after the catch. An ultra-competitive player, Treadwell will be a playmaking possession receiver in the NFL.

Dolphins selected Ole Miss LT Laremy Tunsil with the No. 13 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Tunsil (6'5/310) made 26 starts in three years at left tackle for Ole Miss, allowing zero sacks and five QB hurries in six games as a 2015 junior. He missed seven games last season due to a suspension for receiving improper benefits. Strong (34 bench-press reps) with 34 1/4" arms and blessed with elite left-tackle feet, Tunsil is ready to protect quarterbacks in the NFL and offers traits to develop into a high-level run blocker. Although he doesn't address an immediate need in Miami, Tunsil became a potentially great value from a talent standpoint when he slipped in the draft due to a social media mishap.

Buccaneers selected Florida CB Vernon Hargreaves with the No. 11 overall pick in the 2016 draft

Hargreaves (5'11/204) started 37 games in three seasons for the Gators, piling up 10 career interceptions and first-team All-SEC honors in his sophomore and junior years. Supremely young for a rookie, Hargreaves won't be of legal drinking age until June. Although Hargreaves ran a slightly underwhelming 4.50 forty in Indy, he showed explosion in the vertical (39") and broad (10'10") jumps before shining in agility tests. Possessing an elite combination of quicks, competitiveness, and ball skills, Hargreaves offers No. 1-cornerback potential.

Jaguars selected Florida State CB Jalen Ramsey with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Ramsey (6'1/209) made 41 starts in three years at FSU, logging 15.5 career tackles for loss, 26 pass breakups, and three INTs. He earned second-team All-America in 2015, yielding just a 38.5% completion rate on throws into his coverage. Ramsey doubles as a track and field star and predictably blew up the Combine, running 4.41 with a 41 1/2-inch vertical and 11-foot-3 broad jump. Ramsey wasn't a dominant ballhawk in the ACC, but he offers an ideal blend of size, athleticism, and cover skills to become a high-end NFL starter at outside corner or free safety.

Eagles selected North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Despite their protestations, the Eagles knew they were taking the Bison quarterback all along. Wentz (6'5/237) made just 23 FCS starts, missing eight games as a senior due to a fractured wrist. He compiled a 20-3 record, 64.1 completion percentage, 8.36 YPA and 45:14 TD-to-INT ratio. A top-shelf athlete for the position, Wentz has an 81st-percentile SPARQ score and aced the Wonderlic with a 40. Wentz flashed NFL-level arm strength, ball location and deep-ball accuracy versus FCS competition, but needs a lot of work on his pocket mechanics and wasn't a dominant player in the Missouri Valley Conference. He also turns 24 late in his rookie season, whereas Jared Goff is still only 21. Wentz is flush with franchise-quarterback traits, but he may need a year on the bench before he's pro ready.

Rams selected Cal QB Jared Goff with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Goff (6'4/215) made 37 starts in three seasons at Cal, completing 62.3% of his passes with a 7.78 YPA and 96:30 TD-to-INT ratio. His career record was 14-23, although Goff had very little around him. Goff's weaknesses are smallish hands (9") -- leading to 24 career fumbles -- a simplistic, shotgun-based college offense that could hinder Goff's NFL transition, and a tendency to play too fast with bodies around him. NFL Films' Greg Cosell has compared Goff's skill set to Matt Ryan's. Goff is the Rams' likely early-season starter, and could beat out Case Keenum to start Week 1.

An NFL scout says "some classify [Indiana RB Jordan Howard] as the next Le'Veon Bell."

"Just a country kid that's learning how to play big-time football," the scout said. "Some people classify him as the next Le'Veon Bell. He's an inside guy. I worry about his durability and just his work habits in the weight room. Smart kid (Wonderlic of 27)." Howard is a good receiver and a strong pass blocker, in addition to his running chops. "He's a downhill inside runner," a second scout said. "He did play hurt this year (missed 18 quarters) and has a bad knee. Really an interesting guy."

NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reports that Alabama LB Reggie Ragland was flagged for an enlarged aorta.

The condition requires yearly monitoring, according to RapSheet, and has caused some teams to push Ragland down the board a bit. "Ragland's enlarged aorta is not expected to alter his football career," Rapaport reported based on conversations with seven teams. In their final mock drafts, Rotoworld's Josh Norris had Ragland going No. 27 to the Packers and Thor Nystrom didn't mock Ragland into the first round.

Former NFL executive Greg Gabriel claims the "feeling" around the NFL is the Cowboys will select Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott.

"The head coach is pushing hard for that pick," Gabriel claims. We think it sounds more like a Jerry Jones pick, selecting the splash player who will post production despite last year's average running backs look at least adequate behind the Cowboys' line. All along it has been assumed the Cowboys' top prospect is Jalen Ramsey, but the Cowboys have been known to pull an audible on draft day despite what the board tells them.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler spoke to one team that has a second round grade on Notre Dame T Ronnie Stanley.

When Brugler told the team scout that Stanley was being projected as the No. 3 pick, the source responded with "god, I hope so. Pushes a better player to us." Stanley is the top tackle on the Jaguars board, per Peter King, and the favorite to be the No. 3 selection by the Chargers, per multiple reports. The second round grade from one team just shows the variance in evaluations among teams.

The MMQB's Peter King expects Titans GM Jon Robinson "to be active" on draft day.

Let's connect the dots here. King broke the Titans trade our of No. 1 story. He then had a separate interview with Robinson after the deal. They talk, likely often. King previously mocked the Titans moving into the Top 10 to draft Laremy Tunsil. Expect the Titans to move up for Tunsil or Taylor Decker or Jack Conklin. If not, Mike Florio suggested the Titans could draft a receiver at No. 15.
