Go to 2017 NFL Draft Rumors: Picks 1 - 16 or Picks 17-32



1. Cleveland Browns:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
3/20: The Browns are "fairly confident" they can obtain Mitchell Tribusky at No. 12 overall. - Mary Kay Cabot , Cleveland Plain-Dealer
Trubisky's spots in the top 11 have dried up, with the 49ers trying to obtain Kirk Cousins in the next 12 months; the Bears paying big bucks to Mike Glennon; and the Bills bringing back Tyrod Taylor. If the Jets don't take Trubisky, he'll likely drop to No. 12, which is what I have happening in my 2017 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


3/10: The Browns won't be acquiring Jimmy Garoppolo from the Patriots no matter what they offer. - Adam Schefter, ESPN
This is silly, as everyone has a price. If the Browns offered the Patriots four first-round picks, for example, New England would say yes in a heartbeat. The Patriots are likely trying to build up lots of leverage for Garoppolo so that they get a king's ransom for him. -Walter


3/9: The Browns will make a run at Jimmy Garoppolo leading up to the draft. - Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
The Browns have two ones and two twos this year, and a one and three twos in 2018. They have the ammunition to trade for Garoppolo without removing too many resources. If they get Garoppolo, he'll be protected by an outstanding offensive line (assuming right tackle is addressed, which is what I have happening in the 2017 NFL Mock Draft.) -Walter


3/5: "Sources said the Browns were blown away by Garrett's Combine, both the interview and his off-the-charts workout, and that they're close to making him their No. 1 overall pick." - Mary Kay Cabot , Cleveland Plain-Dealer
Cabot previously reported that the Browns were very interested in Mitchell Trubisky, so this update is very significant. It appears as though the 49ers are on the clock. -Walter


3/5: Myles Garrett is the favorite to be the first pick in the draft unless the Browns get "funky" with a quarterback. - Mike Mayock, NFL Network
There might be suspensions if the Browns do get funky with a quarterback, but why would they when the signal-caller class is so underwhelming. Cleveland would be crazy to pass on Garrett, barring a blockbuster trade. The Browns are taking Garrett in my 2017 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


3/2: The Browns are strongly considering Mitch Trubisky at No. 1 overall. - Mary Kay Cabot , Cleveland Plain-Dealer
While many around the league believe the Browns will take Myles Garrett, it appears as though Cleveland doesn't think the choice is so obvious. We have the Browns taking Garrett in our 2017 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


3/2: "People around the league I've spoken to, unanimously 'would be stunned' if the Browns took anyone other than Myles Garrett at No. 1 overall." - Benjamin Albright, Yahoo!
Garrett is the overwhelming favorite, despite the Browns' reported interest in Mitch Trubisky. -Walter


3/2: Mitch Trubisky is on the Browns' radar at No. 1 overall. - Mary Kay Cabot , Cleveland Plain-Dealer
Trubisky makes much more sense than the overrated Deshaun Watson, who is not a fit for Hue Jackson's system. Still, it's likely that Cleveland takes Myles Garrett. Trubisky is, at least, atop our 2017 NFL Draft Quarterback Prospect Rankings. -Walter


2/2: The Browns and Jets have high interest in Mitch Trubisky. - Jason La Canfora, CBS
Charlie Campbell refuted the Jets reports during Senior Bowl week. The Browns make sense though; Trubisky seems like a good fit for Hue Jackson's offense. They might just be able to land Trubisky at No. 12, especially if his height concerns turn out to be legitimate. Trubisky is rated second in our updated 2017 NFL Draft Quarterback Prospect Rankings. -Walter


1/23: The Browns reached out to Deshaun Watson and asked him to play for them in the Senior Bowl, but he declined. - Peter King, Sports Illustrated
The Browns are more likely to take Watson at No. 12 (or even No. 33) than first overall if they want him, but this could cause them to bypass him all together. Watson is No. 4 in our 2017 NFL Draft Quarterback Prospect Rankings. -Walter




2. San Francisco 49ers:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
3/24: The Saints and 49ers spent the most time with DeShone Kizer at the Notre Dame pro day. - Eric Edholm, Yahoo!
Kizer is second in the 2017 NFL Draft Quarterback Prospect Rankings, but stands a realistic chance of dropping to the second round. -Walter


3/7: It's more likely than not that the 49ers will acquire Kirk Cousins from the Redskins. - Michael Silverback, NFL Network
This is probably the best course of action for the 49ers as far as acquiring a quarterback this offseason is concerned. Even if it costs two first-round picks, it could be worth it; I detailed why it makes sense in the Kirk Cousins Trade Page. -Walter


3/3: A three-way trade may involve the Cowboys, Redskins and 49ers trading both Tony Romo and Kirk Cousins. - Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
In this crazy scenario, the Cowboys would move Romo to Washington (reminds me of Donovan McNabb going to Washington several years ago), the Redskins would trade Kirk Cousins to the 49ers, and Dallas would receive draft picks, including the No. 2 overall selection, where they'd take either Myles Garrett or Jonathan Allen. The Cowboys would win this trade, while the Redskins would appear to be the losers, just based solely on Romo's injury history. -Walter


3/2: 49ers GM John Lynch said DeShone Kizer "blew the doors off" in the interview with the 49ers last night. -
Kizer shouldn't be an option at No. 2, but perhaps the 49ers will move up into the back end of the first round to take him. I currently have Kizer going to the Chiefs at No. 27 in my 2017 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


2/24: There's a lot of buzz that the 49ers could take Alabama LB Reuben Foster No. 2 overall. - Vic Carucci, Buffalo News
That would be insane, though it would match the trend of paying Earl Mitchell $16 million for some reason. Taking a non-pass-rushing linebacker at No. 2 overall is crazy enough; let alone one with an injury history, especially when his teammate, Jonathan Allen, is a better prospect. Reuben Foster is 27th in our latest NFL Draft Big Board -Walter


2/22: It wouldn't be shocking if the 49ers and Redskins agreed to a trade involving Kirk Cousins. - Daniel Jeremiah, NFL Network
I've discussed this already in the potential 49ers-Redskins Kirk Cousins Trade page. You can also vote on whether the 49ers should pull the trigger or not. -Walter


2/4: Kyle Shanahan said that he was high on Jimmy Garoppolo prior to the 2014 NFL Draft. - Mary Kay Cabot, Cleveland Plain-Dealer
The 49ers' presumptive head coach could certainly trade the No. 34 pick for New England's backup. -Walter




3. Chicago Bears:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
2/20: It's looking like Mitch Trubisky or DeShone Kizer to the Bears at No. 3 overall. - Peter King, MMQB
The Bears could have their pick if the Browns and 49ers take Myles Garrett and Jonathan Allen. I have Chicago taking Trubisky in my 2017 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


1/19: Bears GM Ryan Pace told the media that he'd like to improve the secondary this offseason.  -
Malik Hooker and Jamal Adams are options for the Bears at No. 3, but Jonathan Allen figures to be the best player available. Chicago may have to find a new cornerback or safety in Round 2 if it can't sign players at the position in free agency. -Walter




4. Jacksonville Jaguars:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
3/18: The Jaguars will pick a running back in the top half of the draft. - Mike DiRocco, ESPN
In other words, Leonard Fournette? The LSU product is considered a better prospect than Ezekiel Elliott, who went No. 4 overall. The Jaguars have the fourth pick. I have them selecting Fournette in my 2017 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter




5. Tennessee Titans:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
3/8: O.J. Howard has scheduled visits with the Buccaneers and Titans. - Chase Goodbread, NFL Network
These are the first reported team visits, so I thought I'd make a note of it. Plus, Howard is projected to be a top-20 pick. You can check out the full NFL Draft Prospect Visits Tracker here. -Walter


3/6: The Titans may now be the frontrunners to acquire Brandin Cooks from the Saints. - Charles Robinson, Yahoo!
It could be that the Eagles have deemed No. 14 to be too expensive for Cooks, and they would be correct. No. 18 overall is more reasonable for Cooks, though it's still too expensive. Cooks is a great talent, but won't be nearly as productive out of New Orleans' high-octane offense. -Walter


3/2: The Titans are the frontrunners to acquire Brandin Cooks. - Chris Mortensen, ESPN
This trade, according to Mortensen, would involve Tennessee sending the No. 18 pick to New Orleans. I currently have the Titans taking O.J. Howard there in my 2017 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


3/2: The Saints are discussing trading Brandin Cooks to the Titans and Eagles. - Chris Mortensen, ESPN
Both teams are desperate for a No. 1 receiver, and Cooks would qualify, though it's worth noting that his numbers have been inflated in New Orleans' offense. I assume it's for either the 18th or 15th pick, respectively. -Walter


2/22: The Titans could select a linebacker with one of their two third-round picks. - Jason Wolf, The Tennessean
Linebacker is definitely a need, and there should be some viable candidates in the third frame. Here's the list of NFL Draft Linebacker Prospect Rankings. -Walter


2/1: "Two teams to keep an eye on for Mike Williams are the Titans and the Buccaneers. In speaking to sources at each team, they both are intrigued with Williams and what he would bring to their offense." - Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com
It makes sense, as both teams need a receiver, but Williams could easily be off the board at Nos. 18 and 19. Williams is 16th on our 2017 NFL Draft Big Board. -Walter




6. New York Jets:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
3/21: The Jets are very intrigued by Mitchell Trubisky. - Rich Cimini, ESPN
Cimini is pointing to the fact that the Jets sent a full contingent to his pro day, which they would be foolish not to do. However, the Jets like Christian Hackenberg's development, per Charlie Campbell, and they would be foolish not to utilize the "Suck for Sam" strategy if Hackenberg doesn't pan out. Darnold is the top pick in our 2018 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


3/9: The Jets have interest in Ahkello Witherspoon. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
The rising cornerback would fill a huge need. He's a likely second-round pick. Witherspoon is 13th in our NFL Draft Cornerback Prospect Rankings. -Walter


3/4: The Jets are high on Garett Bolles. - Tony Pauline, Draft Analyst
Taking Bolles at No. 6 would be a reach, as New York is likely to select Leonard Fournette, Marshon Lattimore or Malik Hooker. However, Bolles could be an option if the Jets move down. Bolles is No. 3 in our 2017 NFL Draft Offensive Tackle Prospect Rankings. -Walter


2/27: A quarterback to the Jets at No. 6? "I would emphatically tell you no."   - Mike Mayock, NFL Network
Charlie Campbell reported earlier that the Jets want to develop Christian Hackenberg, so signing a veteran makes more sense this offseason. -Walter


2/9: The Jets aren't expected to consider Deshaun Watson at No. 6 overall. - Manish Mehta, New York Daily News
The consensus is that Watson is a second-round prospect, and the Jets don't want to reach for a quarterback. They've also been happy with Christian Hackenberg's development. I have the other New York team taking Watson in the first round of my 2017 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


2/2: The Browns and Jets have high interest in Mitch Trubisky. - Jason La Canfora, CBS
Charlie Campbell refuted the Jets reports during Senior Bowl week. The Browns make sense though; Trubisky seems like a good fit for Hue Jackson's offense. They might just be able to land Trubisky at No. 12, especially if his height concerns turn out to be legitimate. Trubisky is rated second in our updated 2017 NFL Draft Quarterback Prospect Rankings. -Walter


1/31: "There were reports that the New York Jets are all over North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky. When I told this to Jets sources, they rolled their eyes and shook their head. They said that general manager Mike Maccagnan has them work more in depth on early entry players later in the process and not during the fall, so it is way too early to say that for almost any non-senior." - Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com
The Jets are apparently pleased with Christian Hackenberg's development. The Jets might as well give Hackenberg a chance because this draft class is pretty weak at quarterback. -Walter


1/28: The Jets love Alabama linebacker Ryan Anderson. - Darryl Slater, NJ.com
This makes sense, as New York has to find a better edge rush, and Anderson is a high-effort player. Anderson is 12th in our 3-4 Rush Linebacker Prospect Rankings. -Walter




7. San Diego Chargers:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
1/31: "In speaking with Los Angeles Chargers sources, I get the impression that Ohio State safety Malik Hooker has caught their eye." - Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com
Hooker is the No. 1 player in our 2017 NFL Draft Safety Prospect Rankings. -Walter




8. Carolina Panthers:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
3/17: The Panthers and Bengals offensive line coaches spent a lot of time with Taylor Moton at his pro day. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
Both teams have obvious needs for tackles, and Moton is sixth in our 2017 NFL Draft Offensive Tackle Prospect Rankings. -Walter


3/7: The Panthers have scheduled a private workout with John Ross. - Joe Person, Charlotte Observer
This is the first scheduled prospect workout of the 2017 draft season, so I thought I'd make a note of it. You can check the full list of 2017 NFL Draft Prospect Visits Tracker here. -Walter


3/1: Panthers GM David Gettleman said the Panthers could be searching for a running back in the NFL Draft. -
With Jonathan Stewart bound to regress soon, the Panthers are certainly in the market for one. Carolina's M.O. has been to take the best player available, and that could be Leonard Fournette, if available, at No. 8. If not, here's the rest of the 2017 NFL Draft Running Back Prospect Rankings. -Walter


2/1: "While it is very early in the process, here are five teams that are showing a lot of interest in emerging Connecticut safety Melifonwu: Seattle Seahawks, Houston Texans, New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia Eagles, and Carolina Panthers." - Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com
Melifonwu had a terrific Senior Bowl and may have played himself into second-round consideration. -Walter




9. Cincinnati Bengals:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
3/17: The Panthers and Bengals offensive line coaches spent a lot of time with Taylor Moton at his pro day. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
Both teams have obvious needs for tackles, and Moton is sixth in our 2017 NFL Draft Offensive Tackle Prospect Rankings. -Walter


3/2: The Bengals will take Leonard Fournette if available at No. 9. - Aditi Kinkhabwala, NFL Network
Fournette would be a no-brainer as the best player available, but he'd have to get past the Jaguars, Jets and Panthers first. I have the Jets taking Fournette in the latest 2017 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


2/24: Running back isn't out of the question for the Bengals in the first round. - Katherine Terrell, ESPN
Leonard Fournette could be available, and Dalvin Cook's off-field issues probably wouldn't bother Cincinnati. Jeremy Hill has been a disappointment, so either Fournette or Cook would be an upgrade. They're both atop the 2017 NFL Draft Running Back Prospect Rankings. -Walter




10. Buffalo Bills:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
1/27: BuffaloBills.com considers Corey Clement to be the best running back prospect at the Senior Bowl. - Chris Brown, BuffaloBills.com
Clement's pass-protection skills have been cited. The Bills could use a Round 3-5 pick on a running back for depth behind LeSean McCoy. -Walter




11. New Orleans Saints:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
3/24: The Saints and 49ers spent the most time with DeShone Kizer at the Notre Dame pro day. - Eric Edholm, Yahoo!
Kizer is second in the 2017 NFL Draft Quarterback Prospect Rankings, but stands a realistic chance of dropping to the second round. -Walter


3/20: The Saints are close to a deal with Malcolm Butler. - Mike Giardi, CSN New England
It's nice that a contract is almost in place for Butler, but the Saints need to come up with a trade with the Patriots. They could give back the No. 32 overall selection, which they surrendered for Brandin Cooks. I have the Saints taking Obi Melifonwu with that pick in my 2017 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


3/6: The Titans may now be the frontrunners to acquire Brandin Cooks from the Saints. - Charles Robinson, Yahoo!
It could be that the Eagles have deemed No. 14 to be too expensive for Cooks, and they would be correct. No. 18 overall is more reasonable for Cooks, though it's still too expensive. Cooks is a great talent, but won't be nearly as productive out of New Orleans' high-octane offense. -Walter


3/4: The Saints turned down a trade offer in which they'd receive the No. 32 pick from the Patriots for Brandin Cooks. - Josh Katzenstein, NOLA.com
Wow. Apparently, the Saints believe they can get a mid-first-round pick for Cooks, presumably from the Eagles (No. 14) or Titans (No. 18). Cooks is probably worth a second-round selection, but perhaps Tennessee or Philadelphia will disagree. -Walter


3/2: The Titans are the frontrunners to acquire Brandin Cooks. - Chris Mortensen, ESPN
This trade, according to Mortensen, would involve Tennessee sending the No. 18 pick to New Orleans. I currently have the Titans taking O.J. Howard there in my 2017 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


3/2: The Saints are discussing trading Brandin Cooks to the Titans and Eagles. - Chris Mortensen, ESPN
Both teams are desperate for a No. 1 receiver, and Cooks would qualify, though it's worth noting that his numbers have been inflated in New Orleans' offense. I assume it's for either the 18th or 15th pick, respectively. -Walter


2/18: Sean Payton said that finding an edge rusher was a "must" this offseason. -
The Saints have nothing outside of Cameron Jordan. There's plenty of great pass-rushing talent in the draft, as you can see in our updated 2017 NFL Draft Defensive End Prospect Rankings. -Walter


2/3: Sean Payton called Deshaun Watson "special" and said Watson has "things we're looking for." -
In other words, the Saints probably won't be taking Watson; otherwise Payton wouldn't be so open about it. Still, it's interesting that Payton is talking about quarterback prospects, as the Saints may want to find a successor for Drew Brees this year. -Walter


2/1: "While it is very early in the process, here are five teams that are showing a lot of interest in emerging Connecticut safety Melifonwu: Seattle Seahawks, Houston Texans, New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia Eagles, and Carolina Panthers." - Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com
Melifonwu had a terrific Senior Bowl and may have played himself into second-round consideration. -Walter


1/31: "Sources with the Saints say their first-round pick might come down to the best available player at edge rusher or cover corner." - Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com
Charlie has heard that Derek Barnett is a likely candidate to be chosen by the Saints. -Walter




12. Cleveland Browns:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
3/20: The Browns are "fairly confident" they can obtain Mitchell Tribusky at No. 12 overall. - Mary Kay Cabot , Cleveland Plain-Dealer
Trubisky's spots in the top 11 have dried up, with the 49ers trying to obtain Kirk Cousins in the next 12 months; the Bears paying big bucks to Mike Glennon; and the Bills bringing back Tyrod Taylor. If the Jets don't take Trubisky, he'll likely drop to No. 12, which is what I have happening in my 2017 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


3/10: The Browns won't be acquiring Jimmy Garoppolo from the Patriots no matter what they offer. - Adam Schefter, ESPN
This is silly, as everyone has a price. If the Browns offered the Patriots four first-round picks, for example, New England would say yes in a heartbeat. The Patriots are likely trying to build up lots of leverage for Garoppolo so that they get a king's ransom for him. -Walter


3/9: The Browns will make a run at Jimmy Garoppolo leading up to the draft. - Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
The Browns have two ones and two twos this year, and a one and three twos in 2018. They have the ammunition to trade for Garoppolo without removing too many resources. If they get Garoppolo, he'll be protected by an outstanding offensive line (assuming right tackle is addressed, which is what I have happening in the 2017 NFL Mock Draft.) -Walter


3/5: "Sources said the Browns were blown away by Garrett's Combine, both the interview and his off-the-charts workout, and that they're close to making him their No. 1 overall pick." - Mary Kay Cabot , Cleveland Plain-Dealer
Cabot previously reported that the Browns were very interested in Mitchell Trubisky, so this update is very significant. It appears as though the 49ers are on the clock. -Walter


3/5: Myles Garrett is the favorite to be the first pick in the draft unless the Browns get "funky" with a quarterback. - Mike Mayock, NFL Network
There might be suspensions if the Browns do get funky with a quarterback, but why would they when the signal-caller class is so underwhelming. Cleveland would be crazy to pass on Garrett, barring a blockbuster trade. The Browns are taking Garrett in my 2017 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


3/2: The Browns are strongly considering Mitch Trubisky at No. 1 overall. - Mary Kay Cabot , Cleveland Plain-Dealer
While many around the league believe the Browns will take Myles Garrett, it appears as though Cleveland doesn't think the choice is so obvious. We have the Browns taking Garrett in our 2017 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


3/2: "People around the league I've spoken to, unanimously 'would be stunned' if the Browns took anyone other than Myles Garrett at No. 1 overall." - Benjamin Albright, Yahoo!
Garrett is the overwhelming favorite, despite the Browns' reported interest in Mitch Trubisky. -Walter


3/2: Mitch Trubisky is on the Browns' radar at No. 1 overall. - Mary Kay Cabot , Cleveland Plain-Dealer
Trubisky makes much more sense than the overrated Deshaun Watson, who is not a fit for Hue Jackson's system. Still, it's likely that Cleveland takes Myles Garrett. Trubisky is, at least, atop our 2017 NFL Draft Quarterback Prospect Rankings. -Walter

Charlie Campbell refuted the Jets reports during Senior Bowl week. The Browns make sense though; Trubisky seems like a good fit for Hue Jackson's offense. They might just be able to land Trubisky at No. 12, especially if his height concerns turn out to be legitimate. Trubisky is rated second in our updated 2017 NFL Draft Quarterback Prospect Rankings. -Walter


1/23: The Browns reached out to Deshaun Watson and asked him to play for them in the Senior Bowl, but he declined. - Peter King, Sports Illustrated
The Browns are more likely to take Watson at No. 12 (or even No. 33) than first overall if they want him, but this could cause them to bypass him all together. Watson is No. 4 in our 2017 NFL Draft Quarterback Prospect Rankings. -Walter






13. Arizona Cardinals:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
2/13: Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said that finding a long-term quarterback is a priority this offseason. -
I have the Cardinals taking a quarterback in the third round of my 2017 NFL Mock Draft, but they could easily spend an earlier selection on one. No. 13 is possible as well, as Arizona could take DeShone Kizer or Pat Mahomes at that juncture. -Walter


2/2: The Cardinals are very high on Deshaun Watson. - Jason La Canfora, CBS
No. 13 would be too high (although possible) for Watson, as every team we've spoken to has a second- or third-round grade on the Clemson quarterback. Perhaps Arizona would be able to trade up into the back end of the opening round, just like the Vikings did to acquire Teddy Bridgewater. Watson is No. 4 in our updated 2017 NFL Draft Quarterback Prospect Rankings. -Walter




14. Philadelphia Eagles:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
3/23: The Eagles definitely like James Conner. - Mark Eckel, NJ.com
Eckel also says the Eagles will not draft a running back in the first round, echoing the sentiments of Jeff McLane from the Philadelphia Inquirer. I have Philadelphia taking Dalvin Cook in my 2017 NFL Mock Draft, but perhaps that'll change next week. -Walter


3/21: It's very unlikely the Eagles will spend a first-round pick on a running back. - Jeff McLane, Philadelphia Inquirer
McLane did add "never say never." It's unclear if McLane is basing this on sourced information or draft history. If the latter were reliable, the Cowboys never would've selected Tyron Smith. Dalvin Cook is a great option for the Eagles, and I have them drafting him in my 2017 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


3/6: The Eagles are open to trading Jordan Matthews. - Charles Robinson, Yahoo!
If so, they'll need two wideouts, as Matthews is a solid No. 2 receiver. Here are our 2017 NFL Draft Wide Receiver Prospect Rankings. -Walter


3/4: Ryan Mathews has probably played his final game as an Eagle. - Paul Domowitch, Philly.com
The coaching staff shied away from giving Mathews a full workload last year, and it's unlikely he'll return. With a draft class loaded at running back, the Eagles will have tons of options to choose from in April. Here are our 2017 NFL Draft Running Back Prospect Rankings. -Walter


3/2: The Saints are discussing trading Brandin Cooks to the Titans and Eagles. - Chris Mortensen, ESPN
Both teams are desperate for a No. 1 receiver, and Cooks would qualify, though it's worth noting that his numbers have been inflated in New Orleans' offense. I assume it's for either the 18th or 15th pick, respectively. -Walter


2/1: "While it is very early in the process, here are five teams that are showing a lot of interest in emerging Connecticut safety Melifonwu: Seattle Seahawks, Houston Texans, New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia Eagles, and Carolina Panthers." - Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com
Melifonwu had a terrific Senior Bowl and may have played himself into second-round consideration. -Walter




15. Indianapolis Colts:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
No rumors reported as of yet.


16. Baltimore Ravens:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
3/4: No one would be surprised if the Ravens picked a running back in the first round. - Jamison Hensley, ESPN
The question is whether Dalvin Cook will fall to Baltimore because Leonard Fournette won't. If not, that'll leave Christian McCaffrey. For more, check out our 2017 NFL Draft Running Back Prospect Rankings. -Walter
