The Jaguars (and Oakland Raiders) are big fans of Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota. Not that the clubs want to select either quarterback after investing in the position last spring. No, the Jags and Raiders are hoping the QBs rise to set up trade opportunities. Could St. Louis or Houston be willing to move up?
A rich class of offensive linemen could get even stronger if Notre Dame's talented redshirt sophomore decides to join in on the fun.

With projected first round receiver Jaelen Strong sidelined with a concussion, Arizona State had to turn to their "other" NFL prospects to defeat Washington State. Fortunately for the No. 13 Sun Devils, running back D.J. Foster and defensive tackle Marcus Hardison were happy to oblige.
Dak Prescott and the top-ranked Mississippi State Bulldogs won 45-31 but NFL scouts will note strong efforts in the game from Kentucky's top 2015 NFL prospects Alvin "Bud" Dupree and Za'Darius Smith as well as a breakout performance from redshirt sophomore QB Patrick Towles.
