Browns WR Josh Gordon, who told ESPN last month that Cleveland would draft a QB with the No. 4 pick, stands behind his proclamation that his team will pick a QB, but has become more vague about which pick it will use.

"From talking with Ray Farmer, I'm still pretty sure we're going to take a quarterback," Gordon said. The gifted wide out then offered his scouting report on all the top prospects. Blake Bortles: "Looks like he might be able to battle attrition and stay healthy." Johnny Manziel: "A real fireball, athletic player." Derek Carr: "Has an amazing arm on him and he has run the West Coast offense." Teddy Bridgewater: "Is an amazing athlete." Gordon declined to comment when asked his preference.

Texas A&M senior QB Matt Joeckel will transfer, leaving the starting QB race down to Kenny Hill and Kyle Allen.

The brother of Jaguars OT Matt graduated in December and will be eligible to play immediately, wherever he winds up. "I have loved my 4 1/2 years at Texas A&M," Matt Joeckel said. "I am glad I had the opportunity to play for Coach Sumlin, Coach [Jake] Spavital and the rest of the coaches. I am proud to have my degree from the Mays Business School and I'll always consider myself a member of the Aggie family." Meanwhile, Hill and Allen will now square off to become Johnny Manziel's heir. Hill has more experience, but he was arrested for public intoxication and suspended indefinitely last month. Allen is the No. 1 quarterback recruit in the land. Whoever wins the gig is likely to put up big numbers.

NFL Media analyst Charles Davis believes the Buffalo Bills should move up ahead of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, to draft Texas A&M WR Mike Evans.

"I have Evans going to the Bills at No. 9 in my most recent mock draft, but given the buzz around the Texas A&M wide receiver right now, waiting for him at No. 9 might be a recipe to miss out on landing him," Davis wrote. While Clemson WR Sammy Watkins should be gone by the No.4 selection, the next potential landing spot for a WR could be the Bucs No.7 spot. The Bills would possibly have to move in front of the Bucs, to ensure landing Evans. With Lovie Smith signing journeyman Josh McCown to start under center, for Bill's sake, he could also be looking for a future signal caller. Our own Josh Norris has the Cleveland Browns selecting Mike Evans at No. 4 with Sammy Watkins going at No.3 to the Jaguars. The question is, are the Bills going to sit tight and be willing to gamble?

Cleveland will conduct a private workout with Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel in College Station this weekend, reports NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt.

Brandt also passes along that Manziel will visit the Browns for his official pre-draft visit next week. Cleveland owns the No. 4 pick, and there seems to be a better than 50-50 chance that Manziel will be available at that slot. Of course, Cleveland also owns the Colts' first-round pick and might choose to wait to see if either Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater or Fresno State's Derek Carr fall to them. They could also simply ignore the position until Day 2. The QB situation in this year's draft is incredibly fluid, and the Browns figure to be major players in the drama next month.

Texas A&M T Jake Matthews visited the Bills last week, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Matthews also worked out for the Falcons prior to that visit. The Bills make a ton of sense for Matthews. For one, he has right tackle experience. Two, the Bills focus on the ground game and put EJ Manuel in a simplistic passing offense. And three, Doug Marrone has an offensive line background.

ESPN's Ron Jaworski now ranks Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel as the No. 3 prospect at the position.

Prior to Manziel's pro day, Jaworski said he would not use a top three round pick on the quarterback. It seems he has further studied the Aggie and has liked what was on tape. UCF's Blake Bortles and LSU's Zach Mettenberger still rank above Manziel, with Teddy Bridgewater and Derek Carr after.

ESPN's Kevin Seifert does not believe the tea leaves point to the Vikings taking Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel with the No. 8 pick.

His logic makes sense: Vikings HC Mike Zimmer and OC Norv Turner "almost exclusively have played with tall, traditional pocket passers." Seifert accumulated the QBs used in the duos 49 combined NFL seasons. The names at the top of the list are Troy Aikman, Phillip Rivers, Jim Everett, Andy Dalton, Gus Frerotte and Carson Palmer. "If you're among those who think [Turner will] endorse Manziel, then you must believe he sees him in the same light as those traditional pocket throwers -- or that he is planning a sharp left turn in his scheme and play-calling ideas as he approaches his 62nd birthday next month," Seifert wrote. He Seifert: "I can't say for sure the Vikings will pass on Manziel at No. 8, but this is one instance where it isn't difficult to come up with a long and relatively formidable list of reasons why they might be inclined to look elsewhere."

The Eagles will target a large, speedy wide receiver early in the NFL Draft, speculates the Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane.

"What's your ability to get open in one-on-one coverage, because we see a ton of it," Eagles coach Chip Kelly recently said when asked what his top priority is in searching for a wide receiver. Philly's boss also explicitly stated he's looking for size and speed. Texas A&M WR Mike Evans possesses both, but he'll be long gone by No. 22. Florida State's Kelvin Benjamin could be a good fit at that point. If they wait until the second round, Penn State's Allen Robinson, Clemson's Martavis Bryant or Ole Miss' Donte Moncrief will all hold intrigue. The Eagles own the 54th overall pick.

Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel scored an impressive 32 on the Wonderlic test, reports NFL.com's Albert Breer.

That's one point lower than Tom Brady's score of 33, and four marks higher than Peyton Manning and Drew Brees, who each earned 28s on the test. Ivy Leaguer Jeff Mathews (Cornell) paced the QB field with a score of 40. Manziel, however, bested his first-round competition. Central Florida's Blake Bortles scored a 28 and Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater got a 20. Manziel's stock won't be upgraded because of this revelation, but it obviously doesn't hurt.

Draft insider Tony Pauline reports that "three teams are the frontrunners to make some sort of move" for Texas A&M WR Mike Evans.

"If the St Louis Rams trade out of the second spot, and they will make every effort to do as much, Evans would be a target assuming they stay in the top ten," Pauline wrote. "Two teams selecting in the middle of the first frame who are very high on Evans and would consider trading up to grab him are the Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Ravens." All three teams are desperate for a play making receiver like Evans to add to the mix. However, the Rams have the best opportunity to move back in the draft and make something happen with the No.2 and No.13 selections. Both the Eagles and Ravens would have to give up quality draft picks in order to move up and grab Evans.

Texas A&M WR Mike Evans is visiting the Jaguars on Wednesday, according to Fox Sports' Peter Schrager.

Evans joins a number of names, including Johnny Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater, for the visit on Wednesday. Some teams choose to bring in a bunch of prospects at once, with one goal to be how they handle themselves in a group or social setting. It is worth noting that reports have stated that some teams prefer Evans over Sammy Watkins, but we doubt the Browns are one.
Apr 9 - 10:18 AM

Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel, Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater and Eastern Illinois QB Jimmy Garoppolo are scheduled to visit the Jaguars on Wednesday.

The team will obviously take a close look at all three during meetings, white board sessions and possibly even on-field activities. The NFL obviously values personality and getting to know these prospects on a social level, specifically at the quarterback position. We would be surprised if a quarterback was selected at No. 3, so Garoppolo could be the most likely passer from the group to be selected.
Apr 8 - 11:34 AM

Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel will visit the Texans on April 21 and 22.

Due to the proximity of the school, the visit likely does not count towards the Texans' allotment of 30. Regardless, the meeting is notable and will receive plenty of attention. Expect the Texans to select Jadeveon Clowney with the top pick, but discussions have by no means ended at this point in the process.
Apr 7 - 2:08 PM

In his latest mock draft, beat writer John McClain predicted the Texans will select Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel.

McClain has been steadfast in his opinion that the Texans will select a quarterback with the first pick, but that is looking less and less likely at this point. "The experts want them to take Jadeveon Clowney but not this week," he wrote. McClain's previous mock pegged Blake Bortles at No. 1.
Apr 7 - 10:08 AM

Texas A&M redshirt freshman WR Ricky Seals-Jones was arrested Sunday morning on a charge of disorderly conduct.

The Texas A&M athletics department is aware of the situation and is investigating. Seals-Jones reportedly exchanged words with a man that bumped into him. An officer observed Seals-Jones attempting to initiate a fight and booked him. The 6-foot-5, 240-pound receiver is likely headed for an indefinite suspension, per school policy.
