Former Dallas Cowboys QB Stephen McGee believes that Texas A&M QB Trevor Knight will make an NFL roster.

McGee played his college ball at Texas A&M before being selected by the Cowboys in the fourth round of the 2009 draft. While he has some obvious bias when it comes to fellow Aggies QB Knight, he said, "He’s got the ability to make people around him better. He came into a situation that wasn’t ideal and he immediately found favor in the locker room and led those guys. That’s proven." He added that Knight will "have a chance to come in and compete for a third quarterback spot." The Cowboys, Seahawks and Jets are among those who have reportedly expressed interest in the 6-foot-1, 215-pound Oklahoma transfer. Knight is doggedly attempting to stay at quarterback despite the fact that a position change to receiver or safety might be a better long-term play.

Hall of Fame defensive lineman Warren Sapp doesn't believe Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett is worthy of being the No. 1 pick.

"I don't see it from this kid," Sapp said. "I see the splash plays -- everybody gets those. Where's the game he took over? Where? Any defensive lineman who's the No. 1 pick, you turn up and you say, 'There it is!' This kid, no, I don't. I'm a pretty plain and frank guy, and I watch the tape and he disappears." Garrett is the odds-on favorite to go No. 1 to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night. "I don't think this kid is as good as Courtney Brown, either," Sapp said, evoking Cleveland's No. 1 overall pick in the 2000 draft. Sapp believes Garrett's evaluation is based on his measurables, not his game. "I see a lazy kid that makes four plays a game," Sapp said. "This is the No. 1 guy? No, no, no. This ain't even close." We disagree with the idea that Garrett didn't heavily influence every game he played in at Texas A&M. Garrett posted 31 sacks and 47 TFL over 34 collegiate games despite consistent double-teams.

The Browns have fielded calls for the No. 1 pick but don't intend to trade down.

"We have received calls," Cleveland GM Sashi Brown said. "We feel really good about picking at one." Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett is all but locked into that top slot. Cleveland is also reportedly interested in Mitch Trubisky. Walter Football's Charlie Campbell reported Wednesday that the Browns have spoken to the Jets about the possibility of moving up from No. 12 to No. 6 to take a signal-caller.

Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett admitted to "choking out" an LSU tight end during a game on Thanksgiving night.

When asked what was the meanest thing he'd ever done, Garrett responded: "Against LSU my last year, I choked out their tight end two times in a row." The interview responded "That’s pretty mean," to which Garrett laughed and said: "He had it coming. He just kept holding me, so I picked him up, put him on his back and then I grabbed his face mask and kept jamming his helmet into the ground. I said, 'I’m setting you straight right now. Don’t do illegal holds.'" NOLA.com investigated the tape and found that Garrett actually flattened two LSU tight ends, DeSean Smith and Foster Moreau.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that Texas A&M S Justin Evans has "recently surfaced as a first-round target for Atlanta."

Pauline also thinks the Cowboys may be interested in Evans as a late-Rd. 1 pick. Dallas owns the No. 28 pick, and the Falcons come on the clock shortly thereafter at No. 31. This report is something to keep an eye on, as it flies in the face of the online draft community's current reading of Evans' stock. For instance, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler didn't list Evans in a two-round mock published on Tuesday and Rotoworld's Josh Norris didn't have Evans going in Round 1 of his own most recent mock exercise. In Atlanta, Evans would likely start from Day 1 across from Keanu Neal, the team's first-round selection last year. In Dallas, he would help fortify a ravaged positional group that lost both Barry Church and J.J. Wilcox in free agency.

An AFC area scout said that Texas A&M WR Speedy Noil is not on his board due to a confluence of factors.

"He is off of our board. Good athlete, but not a good football player and not a guy we want in our locker room," the scout said. The former five-star recruit was arrested multiple times during his Texas A&M career. NFL Media's Lance Zierlein believes that despite the 5-foot-11, 199-pounder's athletic upside, "character concerns inside the scouting community could make Noil a difficult sell until after the draft."

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline hears that the Cowboys and Falcons have both hosted Texas A&M S Justin Evans for visits.

Evans is not a guarantee to be drafted in the first round, but Pauline relays that the 6-foot, 199-pounder has "a chance to slide into the very late part of Round 1." The Cowboys have an obvious need at safety, having lost both Barry Church and J.J. Wilcox in free agency. They hold pick No. 28, while the Falcons hold pick No. 31. When it comes to Atlanta, Pauline writes that "Evans would also be a nice complement to Keanu Neal, last year’s first-round selection, and he offers the defense more of a rangy safety who can play sideline-to-sideline while being an asset stopping the run."

Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com reports that Cleveland Browns HC Hue Jackson is "in the [Texas A&M edge rusher Myles] Garrett camp."

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier this week that there was a "split" within the Browns regarding the No. 1 pick, with one faction on the team arguing for Garrett while the other faction favors UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky. Looks like Jackson is on the side of the slam dunk pick in Garrett. While this little Garrett/Trubisky rumor has understandably caused draft insiders to bubble with the excitement of the unknown, we still feel strongly that Garrett will -- and should be -- the first player selected on April 27.

The New York Jets put Texas A&M QB Trevor Knight through a private workout last week.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport passed along this piece of news, along with several other Knight nuggets. First up, a note on position. Per Rap Sheet, the 6-foot-1, 215-pounder intends to try to stick as a quarterback, rather than transition over to receiver or safety. We don't love him as an NFL quarterback -- questions about decision-making and overall arm talent are very fair game in this case -- though the tenacity is respectable enough. Rapoport further relays that the Seahawks and Cowboys are intrigued. Either a late Day 3 selection or undrafted free agency probably awaits Knight at the end of the month.

The Texans worked out Texas A&M QB Trevor Knight at their local prospect day.

A dual-threat signal-caller in college, Knight led all quarterbacks at the NFL Combine with a 4.54s 40-yard dash. He probably doesn't have the arm to hack it in the pros, so it was no surprise when Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman reported last month that some teams view Knight as a potential receiver or safety.
Apr 10 - 5:07 PM

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compared Texas A&M WR Josh Reynolds to Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones.

"[Reynolds] lacks play strength which could cause problems for him early in his career against physical corners," Zierlein writes, "but his toughness, work ethic and football intelligence should overcome those concerns and help him carve out a career as a second or third receiver in the league." Elsewhere on the information superhighway, Pro Football Focus comps the 6-foot-3, 194-pounder to Jordan Matthews. Both his frame (perfect for the red zone already) and his ability to haul in off-target passes make him one of the more intriguing mid-round receiving options in this draft class.

Texas A&M junior WR Kirk Merritt faces two charges of indecent exposure.

Merritt has plead not guilty to those charges on March 27. He is being accused of exposing himself to two tutors on consecutive days in October of 2016. The 5-foot-11, 205-pounder's next court date has not yet been set. While we often see players suspended when legal matters are being sorted out, Merritt has been taking part in practices with the Aggies this spring. He sat out the past season after transferring over from Oregon as a sophomore last summer.
Apr 7 - 4:19 PM

Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett is visiting the Jacksonville Jaguars this week.

Sitting at No. 4, Jacksonville has no realistic chance at actually drafting Garrett unless they opted to pay Cleveland a king's ransom for the No. 1 pick. And even then the Browns might say no and just rock/roll with Garrett as a foundational piece of the franchise. The 6-foot-4, 272-pounder is also set to visit with the 49ers (No. 2) and Bears (No. 3). We would be floored if Garrett went to anybody other than the Browns.

An SEC DB coach said that Texas A&M WR Ricky Seals-Jones "[l]ooks great in that uniform but he can't get open."

"Usually you fear guys with that kind of size when they make it down near your end zone but he never competed hard enough down there when we played him," said the defensive backs coach of the 6-foot-5, 243-pound Seals-Jones. The wideout failed to cross the 600-yard receiving mark for a season during his time with the Aggies. For the past campaign, Seals-Jones caught 26 passes for 333 yards and a score. NFL Media's Lance Zierlein writes that "many teams see him as a tight end who may have to add weight and prove he can get after people as an in-line blocker to make an NFL roster."

Apr 1 - 3:54 PM

Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett said that he "[tries] to emulate [Denver Broncos DE Von Miller] on the field."

Speaking with Draftwire's Luke Easterling, Garrett said, "I like how he plays the game, how physical he is, how hard he works to make some plays and how he shows his athletic ability." The 6-foot-4, 272-pounder has been steaming toward the Browns and a No. 1 selection throughout the process. He will meet with the 49ers and Bears in the coming weeks, though they are probably going to be out of luck on the Garrett front unless Cleveland does something tricky at the pole position.
