Miami QB Stephen Morris will meet with the Broncos.

"Morris probably wouldn’t become a candidate for the Broncos’ roster unless he fell to the seventh round or undrafted pool," notes the Denver Post. It's possible he'll get there, as Morris' senior campaign earned him an "undraftable" grade from many experts, including Rotoworld's Josh Norris. Denver has 2012 second-rounder Brock Osweiler and 2013 seventh-rounder Zac Dysert behind Peyton Manning.

Ole Miss WR Donte Moncrief will work out for the Broncos.

Moncrief is a great size/speed prospect who has been lost in the shuffle a bit in a super deep WR class. He goes 6-foot-2, 221 pounds, and runs a 4.40-second forty. "Moncrief might be a possibility for the Broncos’ No. 31 pick in the first round," notes the Denver Post. "He is expected to be gone by the team’s No. 63 overall selection in the second round."

Ball State QB Keith Wenning "is drawing a good amount of interest from teams," according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

Wenning has had eight visits and another eight workouts, according to Pauline. He's been hosted by the Vikings, Packers, Ravens, Rams and Patriots, and performed a private workout for the Browns. Wenning has career backup upside, but has a decent probability of sticking on a roster, which is why he'll probably go in Round 6 or 7.

Draft insider Tony Pauline reports that he's been "told" Colorado State C Weston Richburg could be a "surprise" first-rounder.

Richburg is considered a Day 2 prospect, but he's also considered the best prospect in a shallow center class. Ignore Pauline at your own peril, as he essentially had an identical report about Travis Frederick last April (Dallas selected him at No. 31). If the Rams' anchor is going in the first, Pauline believes the Packers, Patriots, and Broncos are possibilities.

The Washington Redskins are "seriously interested" in Stanford T Cameron Fleming, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

Fleming has worked out for the Panthers and Falcons, and visited the Tennessee Titans. Fleming (6-foot-6, 318-pounds) started the past two seasons at right tackle for the Cardinal. He joined left guard David Yankey in declaring early for the draft. Fleming is a heady player who scored an impressive 33 on the wonderlic.

Draft insider Tony Pauline reports that Virginia T Morgan Moses' "value has increased after the injury to Brandon Thomas."

"It's not that Thomas would have been selected before Moses rather the injury precludes a team passing on Moses with the hopes of getting Thomas a round later," wrote Pauline. "I’m told the Carolina Panthers could grab Moses late in round one and many think he won’t get past the Washington Redskins in the second frame." This sounds about right to us. If Moses isn't tabbed late in Round 1, he won't have to wait too long to hear his name announced on Day 2.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins are intrigued by Miami QB Stephen Morris.

With a huge 2013, Morris could have shot up draft boards with his big arm and ability to throw the long ball with touch. Unfortunately, he flopped. And then kept flopping, with scouts at the Senior Bowl calling him "Tin Cup" due to his ease at making difficult throws and his struggles with executing routine passes. He may not be drafted, but keep on an eye on the in-state Dolphins and Jaguars in Rounds 6-7. Jacksonville OC Jedd Fisch was Morris' OC for two seasons in college, while the Herald reported Morris has "impressed" several people within the Dolphins.

San Jose State QB David Fales is merely a seventh-round pick or priority undrafted free agent in the eyes of NFL.com's Gil Brandt.

Coming into the 2013 season, Fales' draft stock was essentially what Jimmy Garoppolo's is right now: He was a small school chain-mover who didn't impress with arm strength but had great accuracy, rhythm and timing. As scouts broke down his tape, however, they became even less impressed by Fales' arm, and he's no longer even discussed with the intriguing developmental QB prospects.

San Jose State WR Chandler Jones blazed forties of 4.34 and 4.37 seconds at San Jose State’s pro day last month.

Jones was considered one of the biggest snubs left off the invitation list for the NFL Combine, so this was his time to shine. He logged a 33 1/2-inch vertical jump, 9-foot-9 broad jump, a 4.37 second short shuttle and did the three-cone drill in 6.78 seconds. Jones' hands measured size-8, which is small. He did display strong, sticky mitts in college, however. Jones is coming off a huge season in which he recorded seven 100-yard receiving games and totaled 79 catches for 1,356 yards and 15 touchdowns.

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah thinks Ohio State CB Bradley Roby should be a top 20 pick.

Roby (5-foot-11, 194 pounds) "had a couple of rough games" as a junior in 2013, according to Jeremiah, but is "as talented as any cornerback in this draft." Unfortunately for Roby, his worst day as a football player came in a big moment, and it has been difficult for some to forget. The Badgers' Jared Abbrederis famously slapped down 10 catches for 207 yards and a TD on Roby this past season, a performance so ugly that the Buckeyes' corner began grabbing and holding and receiving safety help. Roby admitted at the time that he "was kind of slacking," and his performance elevated from there on out.

Former NFL GM and current ESPN analyst Mark Dominik said on NFL Insiders that Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel could "fall a little more than people think" in May's draft.

The former Bucs' boss, who held that post until January, believes Manziel could slide all the way back to the late first round. In that scenario, Dominik could envision the Texans trading up from the No. 33 pick (top of the second round) to stop his fall. Texans owner Bob McNair is a huge fan of Manziel's, and Houston fans would love the idea of keeping a local star around. Manziel, like Teddy Bridgewater, has a high range of possible outcomes in May's draft.

Pittsburgh QB Tom Savage "has a very real shot of landing in the top of the second round," says NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah.

"When you just look at the number of visits he's had and number of workouts he's had, that's hard data you can tell that there's buzz and some excitement building on him," said Jeremiah. Savage (6-foot-4, 228 pounds) threw for 2,958 yards with 21 touchdowns and nine interceptions in relative obscurity for Pitt last year. Scouts discovered a bazooka arm when breaking down tape, however, and Savage has taken on helium since the draft process began. "The arm strength is easy to notice. He's got a big arm and you see him make some drive throws you don't see other guys make," Jeremiah said. "When I watched him early in the year, he took so many sacks and I kind of worried about his ability to navigate in the pocket and get out of trouble."

NFL Media analyst Charles Davis sees Buffalo's Khalil Mack as a better fit for the Houston Texans than South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney.

Mack will visit Houston next week. "Yes, he is a better fit," Davis said. "If you take a Jadeveon Clowney and are thinking about making him that hybrid outside linebacker, in addition to rushing the passer that he does so well, you're taking away some of his gifts. That's not what he does best." Davis stresses that he doesn't believe the Texans will take Mack, merely that he's a better schematic fit. "With the dropping responsibilities, I think I'd give an edge to Khalil Mack," fellow analyst Daniel Jeremiah said. "But when you talk about a better overall football player, it's Jadeveon Clowney. Today most teams are flexible in their scheme and will find a way to make it work. Pick Jadeveon Clowney going forward."

ESPN's Jon Gruden compares Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel to Brett Favre.

"Johnny has a lot of magic to him," Gruden said. "There's not a more exciting college football player I've seen in the last few years." Gruden, who taped a segment with the Aggies' star for his "Gruden's QB Camp" series, has also compared Manziel to Hall of Famer Steve Young. "I had more fun with Manziel than I did most guys," Gruden said. "I'd love to have him. It takes courage to pull the ball down and reverse field and do some of the crazy things that Favre and Manziel do. There's going to be consequences when sometimes it doesn't work out. But it takes a tremendous amount of guts and courage to go make a play when there's nothing there instead of throwing the ball away."

Utah State CB Nevin Lawson has a pre-draft visit lined up with the Cleveland Browns next Wednesday and Thursday, according to Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.

While At Utah State, Lawson started in 39 consecutive games and was a two-time All-Moutain West Athletic Conference selection. Last season Lawson had 53 tackles, four interceptions, 13 pass deflections and a forced fumble. While lacking the ideal size(5-foot-9 1/2, 190 pounds) at the next level, Lawson makes up for it with his athleticism and physicality to his game. It's possible Lawson could hear his name called on day three of the draft.
