SEC links for Thursday:

– As the NFL begins its annual draft Thursday night — finally — Auburn could have its biggest draft class in 23 years. Offensive tackle Greg Robinson has been projected to go as high as No. 2 overall.

– Mark Bradley of the AJC says that Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel was a great college player, but he’s a bad NFL risk. There is sure a lot of talk that Johnny Football could end up in Dallas.

– Bill Livingston of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer writes that the Browns should take Manziel. “The reason I think the Browns might take Manziel is actually the impetuous owner I’ve often criticized, Hotspur Haslam himself. When it comes to meddlesome owners – think the human moving van, Art Modell – I’m usually against them. But the Browns have been too conservative (and/or clueless) by half in their past picks since the franchise was restored.”

– One way or another, the speculation on Manziel will finally end Thursday night.

Missouri could have bumper crop in this year’s NFL Draft. The Tigers have four players who are near-locks to hear their names called by NFL teams.

– Former LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger has made up for lost time after injury as he prepares for tonight’s draft.

Looking at where Odell Beckham Jr. and other former LSU players might land in the draft.

Florida football is excited about tailback Adam Lane, who redshirted last season but figures prominently in the Gators’ plans for this fall.

– Despite a rough first season, Ole Miss women’s basketball coach Matt Insell is happy with the direction of his program. Insell is a former UK assistant.
