Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports FIU QB Alex McGough "met extensively" with the Miami Dolphins yesterday.

The Dolphins are likely to select a quarterback with Ryan Tannehill as their starter, but in what round is unknown. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom isn't very high on McGough and has him as the 15th ranked quarterback in this class. If the Dolphins like how their meeting went, McGough has a shot at being selected in the later rounds.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah said Virginia Tech LB Tremaine Edmunds has "all-Pro ability."

Jeremiah has Edmunds as his sixth overall player on his big board and said "Edmunds has a unique blend of size, length and athleticism," and "Against the run, he is quick to key, fill and finish as a tackler. He has rare lateral range and collects tackles from sideline to sideline." Jeremiah also believes Edmunds has "tremendous upside as an edge rusher." Edmunds will likely be selected within the top-15 picks in the first round with the upside to be drafted inside the top 10.

An anonymous scout told Bob McGinn Football that Alabama S Ronnie Harrison is a "prototypical strong safety."

The scout continued to speak glowingly about Harrison saying "He won’t have a problem covering tight ends unless his eye discipline gets bad. Same qualities as Kam (Chancellor) but a better coverage player" and "He can be a violent striker but he’s more of an engulfing tackler. He’s a big presence in the alley." Another scout said he is a "jawbreaker tackler compared to Minkah." Interestingly enough, Harrison has taken a visit with the Seahawks as they potentially look for a successor for Chancellor. Harrison will likely be a Day 2 selection.

Sam Houston State DL P.J. Hall reportedly has "a lot of late interest."

Small school draft evaluator Josh Buchanan said Hall (6'0/308) "could play end in a 3-4 or tackle in a 4-3 -- for the next seven-plus years." Hall "seem[ed] like a man on a mission [during pro day]" according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline and has visited the Bengals, Ravens, Bucs, Vikings, and Raiders. He will likely be a Day 2 selection.

An anonymous scout told Bob McGinn Football that LSU CB Donte Jackson reminds him of former Raiders CB Phillip Buchanon.

The scout expanded on this comparison by saying "He’s got that size and quickness. If he had size he’d be a top-5 pick. He is really good. Excellent one-on-one cover ability." A second scout said "He’ll be a real good nickel, he can run with any of them." Jackson proved his physical ability at the NFL scouting combine, running a 4.32 40-yard dash. He'll likely be selected on Day 2 and work his way into a role early in his career as a nickel cornerback.

UMass redshirt junior OT Jack Driscoll transferred to Auburn as a graduate.

Driscoll (6'5/294) started all 12 games for the minutemen in 2017 and was named to the Phil Steele All-Independent First Team as well as the All-Eastern College Athletic Conference Second Team. Driscoll is a good addition for the Tigers who not only lost four starters from last year's offensive line but Nick Brahms, Kaleb Kim and Tucker Brown struggled through injuries this spring. Driscoll should have a good chance to start right away.

An anonymous scout told Bob McGinn Football that Colorado CB Isaiah Oliver has "really good cover skills."

"He won’t hit anybody" The scout continued "He’s got to cover an outside guy. He can’t cover those inside slot kids." Oliver (6'1/190) has outstanding size, speed and length that has impressed scouts. Another scout said he has "average instincts and inconsistent reaction to short and intermediate routes. Just average physicality in run support and as a tackler." Oliver is projected to be drafted in the late first or early second round.

NFL Media's Gil Brandt doesn't "have any questions" about UCLA QB Josh Rosen's character.

With Rosen's draft stock falling substantially as questions about his character continue to arrise, the former NFL player personel executive gave Rosen his stamp of approval. Brandt continued by saying "A good athlete, Rosen has a strong arm and accuracy -- he can make all the throws. By Year 2, he'll be a successful starter in the NFL." Rotoworld's Josh Norris and Thor Nystrom both agree with this sentiment and have Rosen as their No. 1 overall player in the draft.
