An NFL scout told Bob McGinn Football that USC RB Ronald Jones reminds him of former Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles.

While the scout is impressed by Jones' ability to bust the long run on any given play -- much like Charles in his prime -- he wonders whether the 5-foot-11, 205-pounder possesses the physical fortitude for every-down work. Another scout who spoke with McGinn hit on this potential issue, noting that Jones is "fast as (expletive) but he has no power" and that he's "not an inside runner." The Trojans speedster is a probable Day 2 selection for the draft later this week.

New Mexico State redshirt junior WR Royce Caldwell has moved to running back.

Caldwell (5'8/175) is looking to get back into the good graces of HC Doug Martin and staff after being ruled academically ineligible for the 2017 season. Not only has he struggled in the classroom, he sustained a broken leg which cut short his 2016 season. But hope springs eternal, and the speedy Caldwell has an opportunity to push for carries now that he's transitioned over to running back. With Larry Rose III no longer on roster, he has an opportunity to impress in competition with Jason Huntley this summer.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compared Wisconsin LB Leon Jacobs to Carolina Panthers DE Mario Addison.

"Jacobs got lost for awhile behind the depth at his position at Wisconsin," Zierlein writes of the 6-foot-1, 246-pounder, "but he has the explosiveness and the potential to become a much more impactful pro player than he was in college." The analyst would like to see Jacobs hone his technical game "both a pass rusher and as an edge-setter." Zierlein views the Wisconsin product as a Day 3 pick, stamping him with a grade for Rounds 4-5.

An NFL scout told Bob McGinn Football that San Diego State RB Rashaad Penny lacks a "good feel" for the game.

The scout notes that San Diego State's system is designed to pump out gaudy statistical performances from its running backs. Another evaluator told McGinn of the 5-foot-11, 220-pounder, "He runs high. I don’t like his pad level. He’s strong and he’s very fast." NFL Media's Lance Zierlein has likewise noted that Penny tends to carry himself a bit upright. On the more positive side of the evaluating ledger, one scout who spoke with McGinn did praise the Aztecs back for his "great contact balance."

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport passes along that Oregon T Tyrell Crosby took official predraft visits to the New England Patriots and Detroit Lions last week.

Per Rapoport, these were two of seven official trips Crosby took during the evaluating season. He also visited the Rams at the end of March, though it would take some draft gymnastics for Los Angeles to be in the vicinity to draft the Oregon standout, as they won't be making their first pick until the third round. We expect Crosby to be off the board by then. He's part of the late first-round mix.

Arkansas redshirt freshman DB Korey Hernandez will transfer.

Hernandez (5'11/175) initially joined the Razorbacks as a three-star recruit in the 2017 class. He redshirted his first year on campus. This spring, the Decatur, Georgia, native found himself on the outside looking in in terms of the depth chart, likely his impetus to move on from the program. Should Hernandez remain in the FBS with his transfer, he would be required to sit out the upcoming campaign to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations.

Vikings beat writer Darren Wolfson believes the team's interest in South Dakota State TE is "genuine."

At pick No. 30, if the Vikings want Goedert they will have to select him with their first pick. Trading out of the first round is absolutely possible. The Vikings have Kyle Rudolph on the roster, as well as a tremendous duo of Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, but Goedert is a star in the redzone.

According to Tony Pauline, Washington DL Vita Vea being drafted by the Redskins is the NFL's "worst kept secret."

Sometimes a prospect who is a constantly linked to a team ultimately is not selected by that club. Vea fits that label. The Redskins must stop the run, and on paper Vea might solve those problems while also making the linebacker group better.
