NFL Rumors - May 9:

Comment on these NFL Draft Rumors here.

"For those asking about HOU drafting Louis Nix, keep in mind O'Brien said he expects to play nickel 70%. Too few snaps to take a NT at #33." - Lance Zierlein, Sports Talk 790

"The only thing that has changed from that piece is I had one league source tell me #Bills targeting "OT, DE or DB" at 41. No TE." - Joe Buscaglia, WGR 550

Two names to watch today in Rnd 2 for #Saints Keith McGill Utah CB & Pierre Desir CB Lindendwood. Adam Schefter says Houston's likely pick is Louis Nix. That makes sense, but we're hearing Stephon Tuitt or Marqise Lee. Regardless, it's almost certainly not going to be a quarterback.

"Watch the Cowboys on Kony Ealy." - Ian Rapoport

The Browns will go with an "impact offensive player" at No. 33, according to Sal Paolantonio.

The Redskins are trying to trade down, according to league media sources. League media sources is probably speculating/taking an educated guess again. It makes sense for Washington to move out of No. 34.

Ryan Mallett is not available for a trade, according to Ed Werder.

"Houston is now locked in on its player and is not expecting a trade, per sources. Texans happy to sit at 1 and take player it wants." - Ian Rapoport

"On a more serious note, unless Clowney is there at No. 2, looks like Rams' trade options are more likely at No. 13." - Jim Thomas

"Hearing about Chargers interest in Kony Ealy, pass rusher." - Kevin Acee, San Diego Union-Tribune

Anthony Barr is one of the "handful of defensive players the Vikings have targeted," according to Bob Holtzman.

"Everyone in the league" says Marqise Lee won't get past the Packers, according to Chris Mortensen.

The Jaguars are considering Sammy Watkins, Khalil Mack and a quarterback at No. 3, according to Britt McHenry, ESPN. McHenry said David Caldwell called Johnny Manziel the "most pro-ready quarterback" in this class.

"In a trade for top pick, Texans are hoping to get a 1st-round swap and picks in 2nd and 3rd rounds this year and a No. 1 in 2015." - John McClain. It's actually more than that; it would be surprising if Houston dropped its asking price so drastically all of a sudden.

The Browns have performed an analytical study that says Teddy Bridgewater will have the highest success rate in this draft, according to Jason La Canfora.

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

Derek Carr is in play for the Browns if he lasts until No. 26, per Jason La Canfora.

"For Packers fans wanting Shazier, it doesn't appear that he's getting past Miami at 19." - Packer Report

NFL Rumors - May 7:

"Buccaneer owners are pushing for Manziel but wish of head coach Lovie Smith is defensive tackle Aaron Donald." - Tony Pauline

The Vikings aren't expected to take a quarterback at No. 8, according to Bob Holtzman, ESPN

"Two other QBs the Browns like if they don't draft Teddy Bridgewater at 26 or trade up for him: Jimmy Garoppolo and Tom Savage." - Mary Kay Cabot, Cleveland Plain-Dealer

"If Blake Bortles slides past the Minnesota Vikings at the eight spot look for the Arizona Cardinals to work the phones in an attempt to move up for a chance to select the quarterback." - Tony Pauline

"A number of team executives have penned Bitonio to Carolina at pick 28. Iím told the San Diego Chargers at number 25 will also consider Bitonio." - Tony Pauline

The Jaguars "aren't as high on Teddy Bridgewater as some other teams are," per Britt McHenry, ESPN.

"Jake Matthews told me he would be "shocked" if he landed with the Giants. Met with them at combine, no contact since, so ... book it." - Art Stapleton, The Record (NJ).

ESPN's Tony Grossi thinks there's "no way" the Browns take Carlos Hyde in the second round.

The Dolphins love JaWuan James, according to Armando Salguero, Miami Herald.

The Bills are trying frantically to move up to No. 1 or 2 for Jadeveon Clowney or Greg Robinson, according to league media sources, essentially copying what Adam Caplan said yesterday.

The Jaguars are not expecting Justin Blackmon back "at all" for 2014, according to Britt McHenry, ESPN.

"Nobody in the NFL will be surprised if Odell Beckham is picked before Mike Evans." - Ed Werder

"Word's spreading among media here that Manziel is going to Jacksonville at 3." - John McClain, Houston Chronicle

"Cleveland Browns GM Ray Farmer enamored with Teddy Bridgewater, will strongly consider him at No. 26. ... In a perfect world, I'm hearing Browns would want: 4. Greg Robinson 26. Teddy Bridgewater 35. WR or RB such as Carlos Hyde" - Mary Kay Cabot, Cleveland Plain-Dealer

"Keep hearing the Eagles love, love -- did I say, "love?" -- Kyle Fuller. Problem is he probably won't last until No. 22." - Jeff McClane, Philadelphia Inquirer

Sources tell us the Bills are targeting a right tackle at No. 9. Go here for more in our NFL Draft Rumor Mill.

Echoing what we've been reporting for weeks now, Ed Werder said that the Texans want a Robert Griffin-type package for the No. 1 pick.

"I'm not that gunned up over what a rookie quarterback could do for us this year. ... That takes time. This is not rebuilding time." - Jerry Jones

"Oregon State WR feels like Jets are 'pushing for me'" - Brian Costello, New York Post

Teams have flagged Zach Mettenberger over a back condition, according to Ian Rapoport.

The Texans want to trade down and select Khalil Mack, according to league media sources. Once again, Houston wants a Robert Griffin-type deal for the No. 1 pick because it's content to take Jadeveon Clowney at No. 1.

"Bears have shown interest in Florida CB Jaylen Watkins (private workout) and Lindenwood CB Pierre Desir. Could be 2nd or 3rd rounders." - Brad Biggs, Chicago Tribune

"I'm hearing RB Carlos Hyde is on the radar at No. 35." - Mary Kay Cabot, Cleveland Plain-Dealer

The Buccaneers are expected to target Johnny Manziel in a move up to No. 2, per league media sources. This is obviously just a guess, as Sammy Watkins could also be the target. Tampa would have to move ahead of Jacksonville to assure itself of Watkins. Unfortunately, it has just six picks, so it's more likely that this is all a smokescreen.

The Eagles are attempting to move into the top 10 for Sammy Watkins or Mike Evans, according to Sal Paolantonio.

"IF the Cards decide to trade down one of the players they could target Ra'Shede Hageman 6'6 310, can play all three positions on the D-line." - Mike Jurecki

The Rams want to move down to take Jake Matthews, according to league media sources. This is pretty much a combination of two recycled stories; league media sources tend to steal from other reporters and take all the credit when possible. This is a legit scoop steal though; St. Louis would love to move down, and Jim Thomas already noted Matthews to be a prospect of interest.

Kelvin Benjamin, Marqise Lee and Calvin Pryor are possibilities for the Panthers at No. 28, according to Jonathan Jones, Charlotte Observer.

Mike Evans has "flown up big boards big time this week," per Jay Glazer.

"The Cleveland Browns will not draft Johnny Manziel (at No. 4)." - Jay Glazer

"Another 'surprise' QB team to watch: Bengals, even though there are needs at CB & DL. Teddy Bridgewater is in discussion as fallback option." - Chris Mortensen

"I do not believe Khalil Mack can be dismissed from the conversation at the No. 1 pick." - Adam Schefter. This sounds fun, but it's pretty much a certainty that the Texans will be picking Jadeveon Clowney, barring a Robert Griffin-type trade offer.

"I believe their interest is serious. There are people who believe they could take [Johnny Manziel] at 2." - Chris Mortensen

"Jaguars GM David Caldwell said QB Teddy Bridgewater threw better at private workout than he did at his Pro Day." - John Oehser, Jaguars.com. Bridgewater is an option for Jacksonville in the second round.

David Caldwell on having Justin Blackmon available for the season: "It's not something we're counting on." Jacksonville will likely take Sammy Watkins at No. 3 if he's available.

The Texans may wait on a quarterback until Round 3 because they believe a first-round prospect will fall to them at No. 33. They are also going to take Jadeveon Clowney at No. 1 overall, barring a trade offer mirroring the Robert Griffin deal. Go here for more in our NFL Draft Rumor Mill.

The Jets, Dolphins, Cardinals and Packers are candidates to move up for Eric Ebron, according to Dan Pompei.

The Texans and Falcons will not be working together on a trade for the first-overall pick, per 610 Houston. We reported days ago that Houston wasn't trading the No. 1 pick, barring a Robert Griffin-type deal.

The Falcons may trade up to No. 1 overall to select Greg Robinson, according to Jason La Canfora. This is a ridiculous report for many reasons, including the fact that Atlanta could get Robinson at No. 6. That's what's happening in my 2014 NFL Mock Draft.

The Texans are considering passing on a quarterback in the second round because they believe a first-round prospect will fall to them at No. 33. Go here for more in our NFL Draft Rumor Mill.

"If they are going to draft a wide receiver on the first round, they are going to draft a receiver who is unlike what they have -- a tall one. Beckham is right around 6-feet, but that's not what they are seeking." - Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Rams are working out numerous players now that visits to team facility are over. Notre Dame, Ohio St, Tennessee, Michigan are among team's stops." - Chris Mortensen. Possibilities include: Zack Martin (No. 13), Louis Nix (2nd round), Stephon Tuitt (2nd round), Bradley Roby (2nd round), Ryan Shazier (No. 13), Jack Mewhort (3rd round), JaWuan James (2nd round), Antonio Richardson (3rd round) and Taylor Lewan (No. 13).

"The Jets really like North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron. They see him as a wide receiver/tight end hybrid that would be a matchup nightmare in a flexed position." - Rich Cimini, ESPN

There's a 40-percent chance that the Falcons trade up for Jadeveon Clowney, according to Peter King. A trusted source laughed at this speculated trade.

A receiver is possible for the Cowboys if the right one is there, according to Bryan Broaddus.

"As for the Cardinals taking a QB at 20, it will depend on who's on the board, otherwise they could address the position in rounds 2-4 rd. The Cardinals No. 20 overall pick that could come in right away and contribute Anthony Barr, Ryan Shazier, Ra'Shede Hageman and SS 2/3 rd." - Mike Jurecki, 910 Phoenix

The Dolphins do not have a first-round grade on Cyrus Kouandjio, per the Miami Herald. This is yet another report that contradicts the Palm Beach Post article that said Miami was considering using the No. 19 pick on Kouandjio.

"Sources say Miami has first-round grades on just five tackles: Martin, Lewan, Jake Matthews (Texas A&M), Greg Robinson (Auburn) and Ja'Wuan James (Tennessee)." - Adam Beasley, Miami Herald. The James connection is probably more Miami smoke, as the Dolphins would be insane to take him at No. 19.

Bills GM Doug Whaley said that he's open to moving up in the draft.

"I have my doubts about the Texans-Falcons rumor. That smells like Rick Smith trying to create a market there." - WF source

Contrary to the Texans-Falcons trade rumors, ESPN's Vaughn McClure expects Atlanta to stay at No. 6 and select one of the three tackles.

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

The Rams' chances of trading out of the No. 2 pick are "not as good as the team would like," according to Adam Schefter.

Adam Schefter says the Texans will pick Jadeveon Clowney or Khalil Mack, or trade down. Mack won't be the selection at No. 1 overall, so if Houston stays put, Clowney will be the choice.

A friend of general manager Rick Smith told Peter King that the Texans prefer Khalil Mack over Jadeveon Clowney. This is 100-percent smoke.

"Not a quarterback. They want a sure thing." - Peter King on the Vikings at No. 8, which sounds like smoke. King was not a reliable draft reporter last year, as you can see in the 2013 most and least accurate reporters list.

There's a "45-percent chance" the Ravens will take a right tackle early in the draft, according to Jamison Hensley, ESPN Ravens.

Phil Emery said the Bears will seriously look to add a quarterback during the draft.

Johnny Manziel will "fall a little more than people think," according to former GM Mark Dominik, who now works for ESPN. Dominik still has contacts with the Buccaneers, so he may have learned that Tampa Bay doesn't like Manziel. The Buccaneers will draft Blake Bortles at No. 7 if he makes it that far, but perhaps they do not feel the same way about Johnny Manziel, as I currently have it in my 2014 NFL Mock Draft. For more, go to our NFL Draft Rumor Mill.

"Although Notre Dame tackle/guard Zack Martin is the popular name to go to the Dolphins with the No. 19 overall pick, a source with knowledge of the situation tells the Palm Beach Post that Miami general manager Dennis Hickey prefers Alabama tackle Cyrus Kouandjio." - Andrew Abramson, Palm Beach Post. This sounds like smoke because Cyrus Kouandjio is a poor fit for the Dolphins' blocking scheme. D.J. Fluker was linked to the Dolphins last April, and that was obvious smoke as well.

Long-time NFL writer Dan Pompei is reporting that the Texans are "trying hard" to trade down and may have found a partner in the Bills. Buffalo would likely be targeting Jadeveon Clowney, as it could obtain one of the top four quarterbacks at No. 9 overall. Having Clowney on the team would give the Bills one of the league's best pass rushes. The Texans, meanwhile, could still get a quarterback with the ninth pick.

People like that or they donít like that, I donít know." - Vikings' head coach Mike Zimmer on Johnny Manziel's Pro Day. If this is indeed how Zimmer feels about Manziel, this makes it three quarterback-needy teams in the top 10 that wouldn't draft him (we know of two others). This makes it seem that Manziel is in for a draft-day fall. I have him going No. 26 in my 2014 NFL Mock Draft.
