It sounds as though Green Bay is more inclined to draft for defense early rather than offensive players like a new tight end or offensive line help.

    2/16: "Panthers scouts envisioned Russell Wilson in a mini-Cam role two years ago, but didn't want to invest a mid-round pick on him. If the Panthers choose not to re-sign Derek Anderson, Boyd could be an intriguing option in a later round." - Charlotte Observer

    5/9: Ryan Mallett is not available for a trade, according to Ed Werder.

    5/8: "Second source says nothing doing at the moment on Mallett to Houston. We'll watch how it plays out. Makes sense if Clowney is No. 1." - Tom Curran, CSN NE

    4/23: The Patriots have met with Austin Seferian-Jenkins twice thus far (Combine, pre-draft visit). Go here for the entire NFL Draft Prospect Meetings List.

    4/17: "Dominique Easley/DL/Florida drawing heavy interest from Seattle Seahawks, Chicago Bears, NE Patriots and San Francisco 49ers." - Tony Pauline

    4/16: Ravens, Falcons, Patriots, Colts, Browns and Jets have shown the most interest in Michael Sam. per Aaron Wilson.

    4/11: The Patriots will draft a quarterback in this draft because they believe they will lose Ryan Mallett next offseason, according to Tony Pauline.

    2/23: "The Patriots have been taking a heavy look at the tight end prospects at the combine, to little surprise." - Ben Volin, Boston Globe

    2/18: "Amaro would be logical at 29. So would Hageman. I think the other top guys (at DL/TE) will be gone." - Mike Mayock

    5/6: "If Jets want WR Odell Beckham Jr, they'll have to trade up. Hearing he won't make it to 18. At least 1 team above them loves him." - Rich Cimini, ESPN. This does not include the 49ers, who have been rumored to covet the LSU receiver so much that they might trade into the top 15 to acquire him.

    5/5: The 49ers could target Zach Mettenberger if he makes it into Day 3, according to Matt Maiocco, CSN Bay Area.

    4/30: "Hearing ďsame buzzĒ as last year #49ers are very interested in an LSU player: WR Odell Beckham." - Eric Branch, San Francisco Chronicle

    4/30: "All those teams in top 10 might draft me but I been thinking outside the box interesting phone calls." - Sammy Watkins. The 49ers have the ammo to move up for him.

    4/25: Chris Mortensen said that he heard twice that the 49ers could be "ready to do something big" during the draft.

    1/24: "Trent Murphy is on the radar for the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers don't have a big need at the position, but with a plethora of picks, they could stand to get some pass rushing depth and that isn't a bad idea considering Aldon Smith's situation." - Charlie Campbell

    5/8: "Broncos are talking about moving up." - Ian Rapoport. This would make sense, fitting Denver's win-now mentality.
