Ole Miss' Robert Nkemdiche visiting Raiders, Jaguars, Ravens

Robert Nkemdiche will be one of the busier prospects in the 2016 NFL Draft this month, as he recently said he had meetings scheduled with 16 NFL clubs.

He'll cross a chunk of those off his list this week. After visiting the Cardinals on Monday, Nkemdiche will visit the Raiders on Tuesday, the Jaguars on Wednesday and the Ravens on Thursday, per NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. He visited the Broncos last week.

Nkemdiche is one of the most talented players available this year, but off-field concerns and inconsistent play could lead to a draft fall for the former Ole Miss defensive lineman.

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks called him the draft's "biggest boom-or-bust prospect" during NFL Network's coverage of Ole Miss' pro day last week. He isn't likely to be a consideration for the Jaguars and Ravens in Round 1 because of those concerns, as Jacksonville is slated to pick fifth overall while the Ravens hold the sixth pick. It's more conceivable that he would be in play for the Raiders (No. 14) and Cardinals (No. 29), in the first round. NFL Media's Chad Reuter forecasts a slide to Round 2 for Nkemdiche in his most recent mock draft.

Of course, Nkemdiche has plenty of company when it comes to making the rounds with NFL teams ahead of the draft.

USC safety/linebacker Su'a Cravens, who won't work out privately for teams, will visit the Saints, Falcons and Lions, per Rapoport.

A pair of Boise State prospects have a full schedule, as well, Rapoport reported. Safety Darian Thompson will have private workouts with the Eagles and Panthers as well as a visit with the Steelers. Offensive tackle Rees Odhiambo will work out for the Saints. He'll visit the Vikings and Bucs.
