Transferring Rice redshirt senior T Calvin Anderson is taking a visit to Auburn this weekend.

Anderson (6'5/300) started 36 consecutive games at left tackle to close out his career with the Owls. He announced his transfer intent in early January. Since then, Michigan, Texas, Oklahoma, TCU and Auburn have all emerged as contenders to land the tackle stalwart. The Austin native indicated at the beginning of February that Michigan and Texas are currently his two leaders in the clubhouse. Auburn has a strong pitch, though, as they have an immediate vacancy at left tackle.

NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah spoke to one "top" DL coach who compared UTSA edge rusher Marcus Davenport to Jason Taylor.

Taylor was 6-foot-6 and 248-pounds when entering the NFL from a small program like Akron and Davenport will be around the same height and nearly 260-pounds at the NFL Combine. The Senior Bowl showed Davenport has a ways to go in terms of a pass rushing plan, but improving his strengths could help him be an impact player in the NFL.

The MMQB's Albert Breer expects UTSA edge rusher Marcus Davenport to be drafted before pick No. 13.

"Just watch. The converted receiver from a mid-major school will put on a show in Indianapolis," Breer writes. Davenport is coming off a disappointing Senior Bowl week after the expectations placed on him were a bit too high. Disappointing in that Davenport failed to win one on one reps until the final day of practice. The foundation of Davenport's game is length, size and athleticism, and those should be on display in Indy.

USC QB Same Darnold possesses "off-the-charts intangibles," per conversations the MMQB's Albert Breer had with NFL personnel members.

Breer projects Darnold to be the Browns selection at No. 1, and teams' potential comfort with him due to those intangibles seems to be a major factor why. The quarterback hierarchy becomes more clear following the NFL Combine, with many trade talks happening over the course of that week. But as of now, Darnold appears the favorite for the No. 1 spot, as that same "intangibles" line has not been repeated for Josh Rosen or Baker Mayfield.

Notre Dame received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 DT Hunter Spears.

Spears (6'4/280) had a number of high-profile offers on his plate, including ones from Alabama, Cal and TCU. Notre Dame wins the day, though. The defensive tackle ranks as the No. 242 overall prospect on the 247Sports composite board. He already possesses plenty of functional strength and size, but will need to continue to work on his off-the-snap quickness and his overall consistency as he progresses toward a college career with the Irish.

Miami received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 WR Jeremiah Payton.

Payton (6'3/180) was also considering Florida State and Auburn, among others. He's fresh off a sterling performance at The Opening Regional in Miami over the weekend, with 247Sports' Luke Stampini noting that he's "a big, athletic target on the outside that has a knack for making plays." On the 247Sports' composite board, Payton rolls in at No. 83 overall. He currently stands as Miami's highest-ranked recruit in the 2019 class.

In their latest rankings release, Rivals named uncommitted five-star 2019 ATH Quavaris Crouch the No. 1 prospect in the class.

Not much of a bump up for Crouch, who had been sitting at No. 2 previously, but he's the new top dog nonetheless. The outlet's previous No. 1 prospect in the 2019 class was USC QB J.T. Daniels, but that was out the window after Daniels reclassified for 2018. For his part, the 6-foot-2, 225-pound Crouch has shined as both a running back and a defender -- he played defensive end as a sophomore in 2016 and linebacker as a junior in 2017 -- but likely projects as a defender for the collegiate ranks, particularly now that he's started to gain a feel for it. Alabama, Clemson and Georgia are among those pursuing the Charlotte native at this early juncture.

Michigan hired former Florida HC Jim McElwain to serve as wide receivers coach.

McElwain's addition to the UM staff was first reported as in the works early in February, with the coach confirming it on Saturday and the team making the official announcement on Tuesday. While he has been named receivers coach, it's possible that his duties may extend beyond the boundaries of the position group. Sports Illustrated's Bruce Feldman reported on Friday that he could potentially see some of the work typically handled in an offensive-coordinating role. McElwain's time in two-plus years at Florida failed to yield much of an offense outside of a brief spark kindled with Will Grier prior to Grier being suspended for PED use, but he should not be judged solely on that stint -- he found plenty of offensive success as head coach at Colorado State -- and we like what he brings to the table in a secondary role for Michigan.

AL.com's James Crepea passes along that Auburn redshirt junior QB Jarrett Stidham (shoulder) will take part in two late spring scrimmages "at most."

While Stidham could potentially play in Auburn's A-Day to wrap up spring practice, he's a long, long shot to participate in anything prior to Auburn's spring break (March 12-16). The quarterback is on the mend from what Tigers HC Gus Malzahn has termed "minor" shoulder surgery which the signal-caller underwent earlier this winter. So long as Stidham is sidelined, it'll mean extended looks for sophomore Malik Willis and incoming true freshman Joey Gatewood. Willis figures to see the majority of first-team snaps early this spring, but Stidham remains locked in as starter assuming a full recovery on the health front.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein believes it will be difficult to find "a more competitive CB with better ball skills" than Tulane CB Parry Nickerson.

"Just an absolute dog on contested catches and plays with good technique and excellent ball skills," Zierlein tweeted about the potential draft weekend gem. Nickerson does not possess the height many in the NFL now covet, likely standing around 5-foot-10. Outside versus inside corner are quite different spots, but Zierlein seems certain Nickerson can make it in the NFL, possibly in the slot.

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield will not attend the 2018 NFL Draft in Arlington, Texas.

Instead, Mayfield will be with his friends and family. The former Oklahoma quarterback will go from being undrafted to likely a first-round pick, and we'll be watching his process along the way.

Peter King of the MMQB has been told by multiple "NFLers" they expect the Giants to pass on a QB at No. 2 overall.

The goal would be to fill a much bigger need. And just like King, we do not believe it. Dave Gettleman is smart enough to know the goal is to not be in position to have the opportunity to select a quarterback one year from now. Or the next, or the next. Eli Manning is 37 years old. The Giants are not a few pieces away. A forward-thinking decision maker knows this will likely be his only opportunity to pick in the top two.
