JASON FITZ: It wasn't that long ago that Caleb Williams was supposed to be so good that he was going to force teams not to draft him. And now, I'm hearing multiple smart people tell me Drake Maye might go first.
CHARLES ROBINSON: Like, Jayden Daniels is picking up momentum. And I'm curious to see whether some people go, well, maybe it's not either these guys, by the end of it. Maybe Jayden Daniels interviews fantastically. Maybe he blows it out in workouts and everybody goes hey, yeah, he had that one year at LSU, but that represents who he is and where he's going. And maybe this is actually the guy that nobody sees coming.
