ESPN's Billy Tucker compared Tennessee four-star 2018 verbal QB commit Adrian Martinez to Auburn junior QB Jarrett Stidham.

"Both QBs are passers first but athletic enough to make plays outside of the pocket and hurt you with their legs or ability to throw accurately on the run," Tucker wrote. "Like Stidham, Martinez is a cool customer who drives the ball into tight windows when needed or can throw with touch and timing." The 6-foot-3, 185-pounder is listed as ESPN's No. 32 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle. In ESPN's scouting report, they note that Martinez "can drive the ball" ... "make all the throws" and possesses "a high ceiling."

MMQB's Peter King reports that the Philadelphia Eagles are "seeking a trade" with the No. 32 selection.

Logical enough, as the Eagles are without picks in either the second or third rounds due to past trades they've made with the Browns and Bills. King offers this note in his mock draft released on Monday. He projects the defending champs to select Texas T Connor Williams should they be unable to budge off their spot at the end of the first round. We expect there would be some interest for that draft slot, though.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reports that Louisville QB Lamar Jackson had an official predraft visit with the New England Patriots two weeks ago.

The final official visits to NFL teams took place last Wednesday, but this Jackson trip to the Patriots had been previously unreported. Per Rapoport, New England came away "intrigued and impressed" by their meeting with the dynamic young quarterback. There seems to be much momentum toward Jackson landing as a top-20 pick at this juncture and the Patriots -- sitting at No. 23 -- are in a prime position (should they truly be gunning for the signal-caller) to either wait him out or potentially move up if it becomes clear that they'll need to jump a few teams to procure Jackson's services.

Dan Patrick passes along word from one NFL scout saying the Browns are deciding between Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield and Wyoming QB Josh Allen at the top of the draft.

This is noteworthy since Sam Darnold's name is not even mentioned. Scot McCloughan has been involved in the Browns draft process, and during his media stint stated Mayfield was his top ranked quarterback in this class. Allen's name has been gaining traction at No. 1 overall, although Peter King cited a different source stating Allen would not be the pick for the Browns at No. 1. Buckle up.

After compiling 35-plus boards from media evaluators, Arif Hasan notes UCLA's Josh Rosen is the "consensus" top QB prospect.

Rosen is slotted as the No. 4 overall player. Sam Darnold is the second quarterback at No. 8 overall, Baker Mayfield is third at No. 11 overall and Lamar Jackson is No. 22 and the fourth quarterback. Josh Allen sits at No. 29 overall. Be sure to check out the consensus rankings which are linked below.

Sam Houston State DL P.J. Hall is expected to be a day two pick, according to NFL Media's Mike Garafolo.

Hall drew considerable interest after posting an outstanding pro day workout, visiting a handful of teams. Josh Norris recently projected him in the third round to the Atlanta Falcons. Teams will see an upfield disruptive athlete. Those are important.

The Arizona Cardinals love Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield, according to the MMQB's Peter King.

"The Cardinals don’t like Baker Mayfield. They love him.," King writes after projecting a trade up by the Cardinals. Steve Keim called finding a quarterback the "holy grail" for an NFL franchise, and signing Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon doesn't qualify as that in our opinion. With the Browns and Jets locked in to quarterbacks in the top three, the Cardinals, Bills and Broncos could all be interested in drafting a quarterback, as well as the Saints, Chargers and Patriots.

The MMQB's Peter King spoke to "someone I trust, who is very often right and is very well-connected" who stated Wyoming QB Josh Allen will not be the pick at No. 1.

As King notes, we are all prisoners to connections and buzz when it comes to mock drafting. King previously mentioned an Allen to Cleveland connection, as did Daniel Jeremiah and others. Also in that time frame, Jeremiah wrote in marker that Darnold would be the No. 1 pick, as did Bucky Brooks and Joel Klatt. It is the Monday of draft week, and we might not know who will be the first selection until Thursday evening.

LSU edge rusher Arden Key believes he'd be a perfect fit with the Raiders.

Key (6'4/238) visited the Raiders recently. "I loved Oakland -- I vibed with them really good," Key said. "It was awesome. I felt at home, I felt comfortable, and as soon as I stepped in the building I felt like I was part of the team. Jon Gruden, he's a high-energy guy. There wasn't a dull moment with him. I also met with the D-coordinator (Paul Guenther) and some other coaches. They teach a lot of the things we did at LSU, so if they draft me, I think I would fit right in." Key has been a busy guy. He also had pre-draft visits with the Bengals, Redskins, Titans, Raiders, 49ers, Bears, Cowboys and Saints. Clearly, teams want to get in front of him and figure out where his head is at. Key is a first-round talent who's going to be available on Day 2 because of his off-field concerns, dedication questions and durability issues.

LSU sophomore S Grant Delpit (collarbone) will undergo surgery Monday morning to repair a broken collarbone.

Delpit sustained a broken collarbone after falling to the turf in Saturday's spring game. He'll reportedly miss 6-8 weeks. That'll have him mended in plenty of time for fall camp. Delpit, a four-star recruit, showed tremendous promise in starting 10 of the 13 games he played in as a true freshman last season. He ranked No. 4 on the Tigers with 60 tackles and No. 4 with nine passes defensed.

The NC State Board of Trustees approved HC Dave Doeren's new five-year contract.

The new pact runs through 2022. It's worth $3 million per year, a pay bump of $800,000 from his previous deal. The Wolfpack tore up the three remaining years on the old deal. Doeren can earn an additional $1.35 million in incentives. It appears that all parties have reached an amicable endgame after Doeren briefly flirted with Tennessee about its coaching vacancy in November. Doeren went 9-4 last season. He's now 34-30 across five seasons with the Wolfpack.

NFL.com reporter Jason La Canfora gets the sense that both Tremaine and Terrell Edmunds will go in the first round.

It's no surprise that Tremaine is going in the first -- he's rated as the top linebacker in this class by many, and he could easily go in the first ten selections. Terrell, on the other hand, is a surprise. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom ranks him the 129th player in this class, which would make him a fourth-round target. La Canfora says that teams "secretly covet" the 6-foot-2, 220-pound safety, and he is considered one of the best athletes in the class. He also has struggled with tackling angles, and his instincts can come into questions. We wonder if a team like the Seahawks could have interest in Edmunds; as they potentially could be down two starters with Kam Chancellor's neck injury and Earl Thomas a possible trade candidate.
