CBS Sports draft writer Chris Trapasso projects the Bengals to take Missouri senior QB Drew Lock with the fifth pick in his 2019 Mock Draft.

Lock would be one of five quarterbacks to go in the first round in this scenario, with Oregon's Justin Herbert (sixth, Dolphins), NC State's Ryan Finley (20th, Chargers), Auburn's Jarrett Stidham (24th, Jaguars) and West Virginia's Will Grier (32nd, Patriots) joining him. "he Bengals can't hang onto Andy Dalton forever," writes Trapasso. "With Lock they'd get a quarterback with a huge arm who may need time before being named the starter."

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. lists Missouri QB Drew Lock at the top of his quarterback board.

Analysts seem to be split between Lock and Oregon's Justin Herbert as the top pro quarterback prospect in the 2019 class. Kiper does list Herbert atop his junior rankings, but it's Lock who sits atop. "Lock has a legit arm and quietly put up impressive totals for a team that faced a lot of good defenses," he writes. "He had 44 touchdown passes and 13 INTs in 2017 and gets a chance to improve on those totals in 2018. NFL eyes will be watching."

ESPN's Todd McShay projects the Jaguars to take Missouri senior QB Drew Lock with the 17th pick in the 2019 draft in his way-too-early mock.

If you're curious, yes, Lock is the first quarterback that comes off the board. He's not the last first-round quarterback, as McShay also projects Justin Herbert to go in the first to the Chargers with the 26th pick. Lock is considered by most to be the top prospect at the position in the class, but he's not the Sam Darnold or Jared Goff type of prospect coming into the year, so he'll really need to improve to get into that first-overall territory.

Athlon Sport's Rob McVey has Missouri senior QB Drew Lock as the No. 1 SEC 2019 draft prospect to watch.

Lock (6'4/225) has gained a lot of hype early this year as a player to watch. McVey writes "He will need to improve his accuracy and footwork during his senior campaign to maximize his draft stock. However, Lock already has the ideal size and arm strength that NFL general managers drool over." Lock was first-team All-SEC in 2017 after throwing 44 touchdown passes. If he can build on last year's success, he has a good chance to be one of the first players selected in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Packers selected Missouri WR J'Mon Moore with the No. 133 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Moore (6’3/207) was a three-year starter for the Tigers, graduating with a 158/2,477/21 career receiving line at 15.7 yards per catch. PFF College credited Moore with 391 of his 2017 receiving yards on 20-plus-yard catches, third most in the SEC. An 85th-percentile SPARQ athlete with 4.49 (Pro Day) speed and a 38-inch vertical, Moore’s pre-draft concerns were rawness and off-field concerns, but he is every bit an NFL-caliber wide receiver on game tape.

Missouri junior RB Damarea Crockett is "expected to be fully healthy" by the end of the spring.

This is great news for Crockett after being hampered by a shoulder injury throughout the 2017 season. After rushing for over 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2016 during his freshman year, Crockett's injury struggles led him to 481 yards and two touchdowns in 2017. With Crockett likely to be fully healthy entering next season, he and sophomore Larry Rountree III are expected to handle the majority of the workload.

In a scouting report on Missouri WR J'Mon Moore, NFL Media's Lance Zierlein mentions that some times are concerned about his maturity.

In the list of Moore's weaknesses, Zierlein notes that "scouts say he can be surly and question his maturity level." That along with concerns about his focus and inconsistency bring in the football certainly won't help his draft stock. On the bright side, Zierlein notes that he "brings danger" with the football in his hands, and that he's fluid in his movements. Moore likely goes on Day 3, and if he can keep the drops to a dull roar, he could be a steal.

Bleacher Report's David Kenyon lists Missouri senior QB Drew Lock and WR Emmanuel Hall as the top "dynamic duo" in college football for 2018.

Lock ranks at or near the top of most analysts' list for the top quarterback for the 2019 class, and Hall should be his top target during the 2018 season. "Although he's not as well-rounded a receiver as Johnathon Johnson, Hall is a premier downfield option," writes Kenyon. "He and Lock will regularly connect for big plays."

Missouri WR J'Mon Moore is taking an official predraft visit to the Houston Texans on Tuesday.

Hat tip to Rotoworld's Josh Norris for this note on Moore. The 6-foot-3, 204-pound Moore earlier checked out the Packers this month. He tested out fantastically at the NFL Scouting Combine, posting a composite athletic score in the 82nd percentile of pro wideouts. He figures to be in the mix for a late Day 2/early Day 3 selection come next week's draft.

Missouri is hiring former Illinois OC Garrick McGee as an offensive analyst.

McGee was fired in December after spending two years as the Illini offensive coordinator under Lovie Smith. McGee has been a part of several staffs including Toledo, UNLV, Northwestern, Arkansas, Louisville, Illinois, and UAB -- the latter of which he served as head coach in 2012-2013.

Missouri senior WR Emanuel Hall will have his left shoulder scoped.

Hall (6'3/200) sustained a shoulder injury in practice on Thursday and subsequently sat out Saturday's spring game. He's scheduled to undergo a minor procedure in the coming days to fix up his wounded wing. The expectation, here, is that the senior wideout will be able to return to football activities by the start of July, which would very much have him ready to rock and/or roll come August camp. This past season, Hall posted the best statistical body of work for his career, catching 33 passes for 817 yards and eight touchdowns. Those numbers might have been even sharper had he had not dealt with a few minor injury concerns during the campaign. He averaged a sweet, sweet 24.8 yards per reception on the year -- good for the best mark in the SEC and the second-best mark in all of the NCAA. We'll pass along updates as to his rehab progress once he's past his upcoming surgery.

Missouri WR J'Mon Moore is visiting the Packers on Thursday.

The Packers look to be in the receiver market after cutting Jordy Nelson. They've made late round investments in the position over the last few drafts, but Moore and other names would draw second-day consideration. The Packers have a boatload of third day picks and might package them to move up for specific targets.

Missouri redshirt freshman RB Isaiah Miller recently underwent ankle surgery and will miss the remainder of spring practice.

Miller (5'11/200) sustained the injury relatively early in offseason camp, undergoing surgery before the school hit its spring break. There's no immediate timetable for the young back's recovery, but he's got some time to mend before the team starts ramping up for the season in earnest. Miller was a three-star recruit in Mizzou's 2017 signing class and took a redshirt his first year on campus.
Apr 10 - 1:01 PM

Missouri redshirt sophomore DE Tre Williams had surgery on his left labrum.

Williams' (6'5/250) injury will hold him out for the rest of spring practices. HC Barry Odom said, "he wasn’t aware of any previous injury" but "It needed to be fixed, and now’s the time to do it." Thankfully, Williams is expected to be back when team activities begin in June and Odom said it's just a "minor thing." Williams will look to be a big part of Missouri's strong defensive line next season after recording three sacks and four tackles-for-loss in limited time last season as a redshirt freshman.

Missouri WR J'Mon Moore produced a composite score in the 82nd percentile at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Moore's 4.60 second 40 yard dash time isn't overtly impressive, but when you consider that he's 6-foot-3, 204-pounds, it shines some light on his athleticism. Even more impressive were his 38-inch vertical and strong showings in the cone drill and 20 yard shuttle. He was a big part of the Tigers turnaround in the second half of the season, and could be a top 100 selection this coming April.
