CBS Sports' Rob Rang sees in Stanford junior T Andrus Peat a "remarkable talent."

At 6-foot-6, 315 pounds with a wide frame and stunning athleticism, we know what he's talking about. "He has long arms, broad shoulders and good weight distribution with tree trunks for thighs," Rang wrote. "Given Peat's monstrous frame, it is almost unfair that he gains an immediate advantage on his opponent with surprising quickness off the snap. He is balanced and light on his feet to slip out to the second level and can adjust to moving targets. In pass protection, Peat has the agility to slip wide to his left, sealing off speed rushers trying to turn the corner, as well the strength to latch and control defenders. Peat is patient, allowing the defender to come to him, showing good lateral agility and balance to mirror." Rang, however, believes Peat must work on coming off the ball lower, exploding his hips into opponents on contact, and eliminating the propensity to get lazy and bend at the waist in pass protection.

Wisconsin junior WR Quintez Cephus has returned to practice in limited capacity after missing the majority of the spring while rehabbing from a broken right leg suffered during the 2017 season.

Cephus (6'1/195) saw his season cut short when he broke his leg against Iowa this past November. Prior to sustaining the injury, he had been working to a 30-501-6 receiving line for the campaign. The junior figures to be a key component in the Badgers offense this coming season so long as he can maintain his health. Already quite deep into his rehab, Cephus is expected to be fully healed up by the start of August camp.

Denver Broncos GM John Elway said that the No. 5 pick is available to be traded.

It should probably come as no real surprise that Denver is publicly putting the pick out there as a possible trade chip. Even if they were 95-percent deadset on remaining at No. 5, there's no harm in keeping the door open on the chance that a team bowls them over with a sizable offer. The Broncos are something of a draft wild card for next week, as they do not necessarily appear to be locked into selecting a quarterback.

Alabama and Notre Dame have agreed to a home-and-home series scheduled for 2028 and 2029.

Notre Dame will have first hosting honors, with Alabama set to take on the Irish in South Bend on Sept. 2, 2028. The affair will play out in Tuscaloosa the year after, with that contest set for Sept. 1, 2029. While Notre Dame leads the overall series 5-2, Alabama got the most recent laugh in a 42-14 deconstruction of the Irish in the 2012 BCS title game. The defending champs have also reportedly been trying to put together a future showdown with Texas, though that has not officially come together as of yet.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers GM Jason Licht said that the team previously hosted Penn State RB Saquon Barkley for an official predraft visit.

Licht did not specify exactly when this visit took place, but it would have been Wednesday or earlier, as there will be no more predraft trips in this, the final week before the draft itself. If we're to just work the thought experiment of Barkley-to-the-Bucs for a moment, there are a few thorny spots to cut through before such a move would be possible. To begin with, the New York Giants -- selecting second overall -- have been heavily tied to the Penn State star in rumor this month but would need to pass on him. With the Jets presumably selecting a quarterback, the Bucs would still need Cleveland to look elsewhere at No. 4, likewise Denver and Indianapolis at Nos. 5 and 6, respectively. Perhaps the most realistic path for Barkley to end up in a Tampa Bay jersey would be if we see teams begin to jostle upward to fight over the top quarterbacks in the class. This is very much possible, if not likely, and would have the side effect of pushing Barkley down the board.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Florida senior edge rusher CeCe Jefferson underwent surgery on his shoulder earlier this week.

The Gainesville Sun has termed this surgery as "significant," significant enough that it could potentially put Jefferson's availability for the start of the season in jeopardy unless he hits his recovery timetable almost perfectly. Per the Sun, the 6-foot-2, 245-pounder is expected to face about four months of rehab before he'll be healthy enough for football activities. Even if he suffers no setbacks, that would have him coming back in mid-August. Jefferson could have jumped for the draft over the winter, but instead has opted to throw his lot in with new HC Dan Mullen to give it one more run in Gainesville. This past season was the best of his career, as he finished up with 47 tackles (13.5 for loss) and 4.5 sacks. So long as Jefferson is sidelined, Jabari Zuniga, Jachai Polite, Antonneous Clayton and Zachary Carter all figure to see a closer look from Mullen and staff, with the former two players the most likely ones to step up if needed at the start of the 2018 campaign.

The Ringer's Kevin Clark reports that the Cleveland Browns have discussed the possibility of drafting two quarterbacks.

This is not just one little birdie talking to Clark -- he writes that he's spoken to multiple sources within the Browns organization regarding this possibility. There's a huge gap between discussion and end reality, of course, but two quarterbacks to the same team in one draft is not completely beyond the pale. The most recent high-profile example of this came when the Redskins drafted both Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins several years back. Far more fanciful than the possibility of selecting two quarterbacks in the draft as a whole, the possibility of selecting quarterbacks at both the No. 1 and No. 4 picks.

Pro Football Talk's Chris Simms believes Wyoming QB Josh Allen and UCLA QB Josh Rosen have the highest floors among the 2018 QB prospects.

We've heard this with Rosen all along, but the Allen comment caught us off guard. "I have a hard time believing Josh Allen, who has the highest wonderlic score, we've seen him in a pro-style offense... the bust potential is not there." Simms is on an island with this opinion, but it might turn out to be true. Some decision makers in the NFL clearly love Allen, and he has checked the boxes along the way during the draft process.

Draft Insider Tony Pauline passes along word that some believe Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield being drafted by the Jets is a "done deal."

Pauline has been on this path for a long time, and we believe it. The Jets traded up for the No. 3 pick early in the process. Perhaps they have a clear target in mind, and it would make sense if it is Mayfield as he fits the Jets' offense extremely well. We expect this to be a consensus opinion by the time the draft rolls around.

The MMQB's Peter King believes it is unlikely Browns GM John Dorsey reveals his plan with the No. 1 pick until the draft begins.

This was backed up by Chris Simms, saying Dorsey might only tell the owner the night before the draft. It is clear Dorsey wants to keep the selection a secret, but even keeping it from the top ranked executives he brought in from the Packers would be a bit of a surprise. In previous years we've had a firm grasp of who the No. 1 selection would be. That might not be the case this year.

The MMQB's Albert Breer believes UTSA edge rusher Marcus Davenport will be picked in the No. 10 to No. 16 range.

As of now that spans the Raiders to the Ravens. "Some believe he has a higher ceiling than Bradley Chubb," Breer writes. We've mentioned how Davenport changed his body over the years, adding strength and size while keeping his movement skills. His best attribute is his long arm, but questions remain if Davenport can win isolated against top tackles.

Maryland WR D.J. Moore visited the Cowboys, Bills, and Patriots this week.

Moore is one of the top receivers in this class among Alabama's Calvin Ridley and SMU's Courtland Sutton. All three of the teams Moore visited this week have picks in the range of 19-to-23. This seems to be where at least one of the three receivers listed above will be selected but there doesn't seem to be a consensus of which. Moore is a crisp route-runner that posted an athletic composite score in the 97th percentile and has a good chance to be selected in the middle of the first round.
