NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports that LSU RB Jeremy Hill visited the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday.

"LSU RB Jeremy Hill is in Cincy today visiting with Bengals. Has visited with Bills, Titans & Jaguars. He has one more visit this week," Rapoport tweeted. The previous mentioned teams would easily welcome Hill's punishing downhill running style to their rushing attack. Hill has generated some buzz as of late, and is battling Ohio State's Carlos Hyde to have his name called first, amongst this year's crop of running backs. The 6-foot-2, 235-pound Hill has drawn comparisons to LaGarrette Blount.

The Miami Herald reports that the Miami Dolphins plan to bring in LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. for a visit.

The Dolphins have several receivers on their radar that they could take in the first or second round, starting with LSU’s Odell Beckham, USC’s Marqise Lee, Mississippi’s Donte Moncrief, Oregon State’s Brandin Cooks and Florida State’s Kelvin Benjamin. It looks like the Dolphins could be looking for a future star wideout sooner than later. Odell Beckham Jr. is an explosive prospect with good instincts and the ability to stretch the field. With Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace's future up in the air, the Dolphins could use another dynamic play maker, who could also help out on special teams right away.

LSU WR Jarvis Landry will visit the Jets on Monday.

Landry will be available perhaps into Day 3, but he might figure into the Jets' plans at that point. If New York decides to take a corner in Round 1 over a WR, the team may decide to wait on a WR. Because this WR class is so deep, a good player that tested poorly like Landry can be had in Round 4. We think Landry has big steal potential.

LSU's Odell Beckham Jr. and Oregon State's Brandin Cooks will both visit the Jets this week.

Jets coach Rex Ryan has made an offseason priority out of improving the team's WRs. Despite the additions of Eric Decker and Jacoby Ford, New York isn't done shopping. It would be a slight surprise if Beckham reaches the Jets at No. 18, but Cooks could be in play.

ESPN's Kevin Weidl believes LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr.'s instincts, vision, and acceleration to find and exploit seams as a returner are all "exceptional" traits.

"Explosive athlete!" Weidl tweeted. Neither the game tape nor his measurements will deny that fact. Beckham (5-foot-11 1/4 and 198 pounds) was a star of the combine, posting an unofficial forty time of 4.31 and a 10-yard split of 1.50 seconds. The Tigers' star is capable of taking huge chunks of yards on bubble screens, slants and crossing routes, but you can also send him deep. In addition to the speed and athleticism, he'll go up and get the ball in contested situations.

LSU LB Lamin Barrow is visiting the Vikings on Thursday, according to Aaron Wilson.

Barrow is almost certainly a day three selection, but could slip in to the weakside role for the Vikings. Mike Zimmer used defensive talent wisely while with the Bengals, and fans in Minnesota are expecting the same.

The Panthers are working out LSU WRs Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr., according to David Newton.

Receivers coach Ricky Proehl is reportedly one of the Panthers' staffers on site. OBJ will not be available at pick No. 28, and it is doubtful the Panthers trade up for his services. Landry is an option on the second day, however, and operates best in the slot by winning in contested situations or separating with little wasted movement.

Former LSU LB Tahj Jones was shot on Friday night by former LSU OL Brandon Winey, a 2001 6th round pick, according to the police.

The 24-year-old Jones is in serious condition. Winey has been charged with attempted second-degree murder. The shooting occurred after an altercation in the apartment of one of Jones' female friends. Winey played three years in the NFL.

LSU FB J.C. Copeland met with the Patriots, Cowboys and Lions this week.

In addition, he has a private workout scheduled with the Falcons on Sunday in Baton Rouge and is slated to work out for the Buccaneers on April 25. The 6-foot-1, 270-pound former defensive tackle is a punishing lead blocker who earned MVP honors in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. He should find a home with a team that runs between the tackles with regularity.

LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. had dinner with the Steelers on Tuesday, and also met with the 49ers and Bills this week.

Pittsburgh is known to be extremely interested in Beckham, though it's no longer a guarantee that he'll be on the board at No. 15. NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah said recently that he wouldn't be shocked if Beckham snuck into the top 10. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin attended Beckham's pro day Wednesday in Baton Rouge.

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. could sneak into the top 10.

"Every now and then you have a player go in the top 10 (and) nobody saw it coming. How about WR Odell Beckham Jr. from LSU," Jeremiah said. "This is a player a lot of people are excited about. And if we see a guy like Sammy Watkins potentially go with that No. 2 overall pick, and then you see Mike Evans go early on, I think Odell Beckham Jr. is next in line. What he can do in the passing game -- go up and get the footblal, run after the catch, can stretch the field vertically, and then the added bonus (is) he's an outstanding returner. So to me, he's a wild-card player. I think people might be shocked on the outside, but a lot of love for him inside the league." The Bills at No. 9 are a possibility, as are the Lions at No. 10 if they fail to trade up for Sammy Watkins and see Mike Evans come off the board before their time.

LSU QB Zach Mettenberger worked out privately for the Detroit Lions on Saturday.

Mettenberger will also audition for Tennessee in a private workout later this month. On Saturday, the Lions also got a look at WR Kadron Boone and FB J.C. Copeland. Mettenberger, underwent ACL surgery at the beginning of January, is expected to be healthy before next season begins. "Zach threw the ball really, really well," one source who attended the workout said. "He's got the best arm in the draft. He threw a variety of passes. It was impressive."
Apr 12 - 5:30 PM

LSU WR Odell Beckham Jr. "will be a superstar at the next level," according to NFL media analyst Bucky Brooks.

The 5-foot-11, 198-pounder is an "explosive playmaker" with the "speed and elusiveness to produce fireworks at the drop of a hat," according to the analyst, who compared him to Victor Cruz. "Beckham is fast enough to run away from defenders on the perimeter, yet displays the power and toughness to run through arm tackles in traffic," Brooks wrote. "Thus, he regularly turns short passes into big gains on bubble screens, slants and crossing routes. Not to mention, he's a home-run hitter on vertical routes."

Vikings OC Norv Turner "was calling out routes" he wanted LSU QB Zach Mettenberger to throw by the end of his private workout on Wednesday, reports ESPN's Ben Goessling.

Much of Minnesota's speculated interest in the sturdy Mettenberger revolves around the idea that the respected Turner would want his bazooka arm to stretch the field, a key tenant of his mythologized strategy. Mettenberger is a classic drop-back QB in the mold of former Turner disciples Troy Aikman and Phillip Rivers. Of course, Mettenberger makes for an extremely clever smoke screen if Vikings officials are targeting a different QB with the No. 8 pick.
Apr 11 - 5:30 PM

LSU WR Jarvis Landry ran a pair of 4.58 forties at his pro day on Wednesday.

Not only that, but he dropped "three to four" passes. "Rough day overall," noted The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson. If you're forcing yourself to think positively, Landry improved greatly upon his dreadful 4.77 forty time at the combine. Landry (5-foot-11 1/2, 205 pounds, 10 1/4 inch hands and 31 and 3/4 inch arms) is in store for a free fall in May's draft, perhaps into Day 3. Rotoworld's Josh Norris sees a steal.
