Go to 2018 NFL Draft Rumors: Picks 1 - 16 or Picks 17-32



18. Seattle Seahawks:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
4/26: The Broncos and Seahawks want to trade down. - Jason La Canfora, CBS
Seattle is not a surprise. Denver could move down and grab Denzel Ward at Nos. 11 or 12. The Broncos may want to do that if Bradley Chubb is off the board. -Walter


4/26: The Cowboys and Seahawks are discussing a trade for Earl Thomas, centered around the No. 50 pick. - Dan Graziano, ESPN
Reports indicate that the only thing holding this trade up is Dallas needing assurance that it can sign Thomas to a long-term deal. Considering Thomas begged the Dallas coaching staff to acquire him after the penultimate game of the year, the Cowboys should feel pretty confident they can get a contract done. -Walter


4/25: If the Seahawks trade down, Isaiah Oliver will be on their list of targets. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
I suspect their list of targets looks like this: Maurice Hurst; Billy Price; Christian Kirk; Ronnie Harrison; Justin Reid; Isaiah Oliver; Dallas Goedert. Those are the top seven prospects who visited Seattle's facility. Trading down for any one of them makes sense. -Walter


4/9: The Seahawks like Marcus Davenport. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
Seattle, however, may not get a chance to select him. First of all, there's a decent chance Davenport won't be available. Second, the Seahawks are likely to trade down because they have just one pick in the top 119 picks. Still, if they stay put, and Davenport is available, he's a very realistic option for them. -Walter


4/5: "I'm told Seahawks had a close eye on RB Derrius Guice at LSU pro day today." - Eric Edholm, Pro Football Weekly
The Seahawks are drafting 18th overall, so it's not out of the question that they could select Guice at that spot. Given all of their needs, they could trade down into the mid or late 20s and select Guice there. -Walter


3/4: The Seahawks will look to trade down from No. 18. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
Seattle did this last year, and it makes sense to do it again; after 18th overall, the Seahawks don't pick until No. 120. -Walter


2/9: The Seahawks and Packers are showing heavy interest in Wake Forest safety Jesse Bates. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
Bates is a second-day prospect, so either team could take him in the second or third round. -Walter


1/24: The Seahawks were very complimentary of Nevada center Austin Corbett. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
Seattle praised his durability, versatility and "ability to obliterate defenders." The Seahawks are desperate for offensive line help, and Corbett could be a second-day pick of theirs if they like him enough. -Walter




19. Dallas Cowboys:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
4/27: The Cowboys plan to select Courtland Sutton in the second round. - Jordan Schultz, Yahoo!
The problem is that Sutton may not be available by the 50th pick, but if he is, it makes a lot of sense for Dallas to find a No. 1 receiver. -Walter


4/26: The Cowboys and Seahawks are discussing a trade for Earl Thomas, centered around the No. 50 pick. - Dan Graziano, ESPN
Reports indicate that the only thing holding this trade up is Dallas needing assurance that it can sign Thomas to a long-term deal. Considering Thomas begged the Dallas coaching staff to acquire him after the penultimate game of the year, the Cowboys should feel pretty confident they can get a contract done. -Walter


4/25: "If Leighton Vander Esch is on the board at No. 19, I don't think the Cowboys are passing. Dallas likes him quite a bit." - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
We've had Vander Esch slotted to the Cowboys in our 2018 NFL Mock Draft for several weeks now. The only question, as Brugler points out, is if Vander Esch will even be available at that spot. -Walter


4/24: The order of players the Cowboys are considering are: Vita Vea, Leighton Vander Esch and D.J. Moore. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
Dallas' top player, Vea, won't be available at No. 19, but it sounds like Vander Esch and Moore will be. We have the Cowboys taking Vander Esch in our updated 2018 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


4/23: The Cowboys are "not in love" with Calvin Ridley. - Lance Zierlein, NFL Network
Ridley was one of my "not" picks for the Cowboys, so I'm not surprised to hear this. Zierlein went on to say that the Cowboys are prioritizing defensive line and linebacker over receiver anyway. I have Leighton Vander Esch slotted to Dallas at No. 19 overall in my 2018 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


4/23: The Cowboys envision Leighton Vander Esch as "Brian Urlacher 2.0." - Jane Slater, NFL Network
An NFC team medically flunked Vander Esch, but it wasn't the Cowboys, as I've had them taking the Boise State linebacker for several weeks now in my 2018 NFL Mock Draft. The Cowboys have a bulging need at linebacker in the wake of Anthony Hitchens' departure, and Vander Esch makes sense at No. 19. -Walter


4/19: The Cowboys do not consider Courtland Sutton a first-round talent. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
This isn't the first team we've heard that dislikes Sutton, as a high-ranking personnel man on another NFC team told us this morning that he views both Sutton and D.J. Moore as second-round prospects. Meanwhile, legendary draft writer Rick Gosselin argued recently that Dallas would not take a receiver in the first round, as the team would opt for a wideout at some point on Day 2 instead. -Walter


2/28: The Cowboys and Panthers both like Wake Forest safety Jesse Bates. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
Pauline notes that Dallas and Carolina could make a move on him in the third round, though it's possible that he could sneak into the second frame. -Walter


1/25: Someone to keep in mind for the Cowboys is Boise State linebacker Leighton Vander Esch. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
Per Pauline, Dallas is looking to address linebacker and defensive end this offseason, and Vander Esch would certainly fill the former need. He could be obtained via trading down in the first round or up in the second frame. -Walter




20. Detroit Lions:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
4/23: "Sources told me that Lions general manager Bob Quinn was at the Florida pro day to watch Taven Bryan." - Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com
It remains to be seen if Quinn likes what he saw, but given that pro days are practically a dog-and-pony show, chances are he did. Bryan would be a logical choice at No. 20, and Charlie has them heading that direction in his updated mock. -Walter


3/4: The Lions, Texans and Patriots are interested in Christian Sam. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
Sam weighed in at 6-1, 244. He's viewed as a mid-day-three prospect, so those teams could target him in the fifth round. -Walter






21. Cincinnati Bengals:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
4/14: James Daniels has visited the Bengals. - Rob Howe, Hawkeye Nation
Daniels has been a mainstay of our Bengals selections in our 2018 NFL Mock Draft. This is significant because the Bengals tend to draft the prospects they host. Four of their selections from the 2017 NFL Draft were visits. -Walter




23. Los Angeles Rams:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
3/17: The Panthers and Rams are very interested in Chandon Sullivan. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
The Georgia State cornerback is an early third-day prospect who impressed at his pro day with an 11-2 broad jump. I don't know what the Rams would do with another corner, but Carolina makes sense. -Walter




24. Carolina Panthers:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
4/25: "If Frank Ragnow is on the board [for the Panthers], he's the selection." - Josh Norris, Rotoworld
Ryan Kalil said he's going to retire after this season, so Ragnow makes sense from a needs perspective. The problem is that Ragnow may not be available, as he's coming off the board at No. 21 in our 2018 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


4/23: Joe Person predicts the Panthers will select D.J. Moore. -
Person of the Charlotte Observer has handicapped the Panthers' first-round picks perfectly in recent years, and he was the first to connect them to Christian McCaffrey in 2017. -Walter


4/11: The Panthers are high on Hayden Hurst. - Joe Person, Charlotte Observer
Hurst visited the Panthers as part of a local workout, but Person states that Carolina likes him. The Panthers will have to take Hurst with their initial pick unless they trade up in the second round. -Walter


3/17: The Panthers and Rams are very interested in Chandon Sullivan. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
The Georgia State cornerback is an early third-day prospect who impressed at his pro day with an 11-2 broad jump. I don't know what the Rams would do with another corner, but Carolina makes sense. -Walter


2/28: The Cowboys and Panthers both like Wake Forest safety Jesse Bates. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
Pauline notes that Dallas and Carolina could make a move on him in the third round, though it's possible that he could sneak into the second frame. -Walter


2/26: The Panthers are expected to select a tight end in the 2018 NFL Draft. - David Newton, ESPN
This makes sense, as Greg Olsen turns 33 in March. The Panthers could treat their new tight end (Round 2-4 pick, likely) as the Chargers did with Hunter Henry. -Walter




25. Tennessee Titans:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
5/2: Arden Key is a sleeper no one is talking about for the Titans at 25. - Matt Miller, Bleacher Report
Wow, that would be much earlier than Key's expected third- or fourth-round range. -Walter


4/23: "Sources say some of the top candidates for Tennessee include Ohio State defensive end Sam Hubbard, Boston College defensive end Harold Landry, and Alabama linebacker Rashaan Evans." - Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com
Of those three Hubbard is most likely to be available. Charlie noted that the Titans want a safe pick, and Hubbard would be able to start in 2019 once Brian Orakpo hits free agency. -Walter


4/13: The Titans have canceled their visit with Leighton Vander Esch because they don't expect him to be available at No. 25. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
There are some concerns with Vander Esch, which we'll post Monday, but there's no doubt that his stock has been rising throughout the pre-draft process. Vander Esch is 19th in our 2018 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


4/5: The Titans have shown tons of interest in Josh Sweat. - Jon Ledyard, NDT Scouting
Tennessee could use another edge rusher, as Brian Orakpo will be an impending free agent next March. Harold Landry and Sam Hubbard are options in the first round, but Tennessee could select Sweat at No. 57 overall. -Walter


1/28: The Titans are expected to move on from DeMarco Murray this offseason. - Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com
Tennessee believes it's Derrick Henry's team now. The team is expected to draft Henry's backup in the middle rounds. -Walter


1/1: The following scouts were at the Wyoming vs. Iowa game to see Josh Allen, Joshua Jackson and others: Titans, Ravens, Chargers, Steelers, Cardinals, Falcons, Redskins. - Michele Steele, ESPN
The Cardinals and Redskins (if Kirk Cousins leaves) are the most logical spots for Allen among those teams, but the Ravens, Chargers and Steelers could all take Allen as their quarterback of their future. -Walter




26. Atlanta Falcons:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
4/23: Julio Jones unfollowed everyone from the Falcons organization on Twitter, made his account private and deleted all Falcons pictures from his profile. -
Somewhere out there, LeSean McCoy is thinking, "wow." This may not mean anything, but it could also mean Jones was traded somewhere, so stay tuned. If you do a search of "Julio Jones" on Twitter, you'll see a fake Ian Rapoport account saying Jones has been traded to the Packers, so make sure you look for that all-important blue check mark. -Walter


3/2: The Falcons like Wisconsin tight end Troy Fumagalli. - D. Orlando Ledbetter, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Atlanta just released Levine Toilolo, so it would make sense for its front office to target a replacement in the middle rounds, where Fumagalli could be available. -Walter


1/28: The Falcons love both Da'Ron Payne and Vita Vea, but expect both to be gone. Atlanta also likes Taven Bryan. - Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com
Atlanta's defense was incredibly soft in the divisional-round loss to the Eagles, so it makes sense that they would pursue a defensive tackle in the opening round. -Walter


1/1: The following scouts were at the Wyoming vs. Iowa game to see Josh Allen, Joshua Jackson and others: Titans, Ravens, Chargers, Steelers, Cardinals, Falcons, Redskins. - Michele Steele, ESPN
The Cardinals and Redskins (if Kirk Cousins leaves) are the most logical spots for Allen among those teams, but the Ravens, Chargers and Steelers could all take Allen as their quarterback of their future. -Walter




27. New Orleans Saints:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
4/26: The Saints have made plenty of calls to make a big leap up in the draft. - Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
Presumably for Lamar Jackson, as they've spent more time on Louisville's campus over the past year than any other team. New Orleans wanted Patrick Mahomes last year, but missed out on him. The front office could be more proactive in trying to get a franchise quarterback this time. -Walter


4/5: The Saints have spent more time in Louisville over the past year than any other. - Eric Edholm, Pro Football Weekly
For Geron Christian, no doubt. In all seriousness, the Saints are a logical team to move up for Lamar Jackson, which is what we have happening in this potential NFL Draft Trade. The Saints wanted Patrick Mahomes last year, but missed out on him when the Chiefs traded up ahead of them. Perhaps that'll entice them to move up for Jackson. -Walter


3/8: The Saints are very high on Alabama defensive lineman Da'Shawn Hand. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
Hand is projected as a mid-second- to early-third-round pick. The Saints don't have a second-round pick at the moment, so they'll have to trade up from No. 91, move down from No. 27, or pray he gets to them in the third. -Walter


1/22: Sean Payton happens to be "squarely in the camp of Baker Mayfield believers." - Charles Robinson, Yahoo!
The Saints were rumored to be very interested in Patrick Mahomes last year, but the Chiefs moved in front of them. New Orleans needs to find Drew Brees' successor, and Mayfield could sit behind the future Hall of Famer for a year or two. -Walter


1/22: The Saints believe they're in position to take the best player available in the first round, outside of running back, offensive line and safety. - Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com
New Orleans has drafted extremely well lately, and grabbing the top prospect on the board will likely ensure that this trend will continue. -Walter




28. Pittsburgh Steelers:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
4/24: Harold Landry is in play for the Steelers. - Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com
Pittsburgh took T.J. Watt last year, but the team apparently won't pass on a talented edge rusher if all of the first-round linebackers are off the board. Charlie has the Steelers taking Landry at No. 28 in his newest mock. -Walter


4/23: "I've heard the Steelers are are high on Lamar Jackson, and sources that were at the Louisville pro day said they brought all of the top decision makers there to watch Jackson." - Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com
I personally have Jackson going to the Saints in my 2018 NFL Mock Draft, but I've slotted him to the Steelers in the past. If I had to guess, I'd say one of Pittsburgh or New Orleans trades up for Jackson. -Walter


3/26: "Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin and GM Kevin Colbert are having dinner with LSU running back Derrius Guice around his pro day next week, per source. The Steelers' first-round intrigue in Guice is real." - Jeremy Fowler, ESPN
Taking Guice would be interesting, as it would be a concession that Le'Veon Bell won't be around much longer. Guice, slotted third in our 2018 NFL Draft Running Back Prospect Rankings, seemingly has a range of 20-40, so he would make sense at No. 28. -Walter


3/4: The Packers like Leighton Vander Esch, and he won't last beyond the Steelers. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
Pauline is also reporting that Vander Esch has been interviewing extremely well in Indianapolis. His stock is definitely pointing up. -Walter


2/28: Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said he wouldn't rule out taking a quarterback at No. 28 overall. - Aditi Kinkhabwala, NFL Network
Ben Roethlisberger said he wants to play for three more years, but he could always change his mind again, so it makes sense for the Steelers to keep their options open. I have them taking Lamar Jackson in my 2018 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


2/27: "I'm told the Steelers already have started doing their draft due diligence on Boise State LB Leighton Vander Esch, whom analysts are pegging to the Steelers at No. 28 overall." - Jeremy Fowler, ESPN
Vander Esch is a late first-round prospect, so he would make sense for the Steelers at No. 28, as Pittsburgh needs to fill Ryan Shazier's void.  -Walter


1/1: The following scouts were at the Wyoming vs. Iowa game to see Josh Allen, Joshua Jackson and others: Titans, Ravens, Chargers, Steelers, Cardinals, Falcons, Redskins. - Michele Steele, ESPN
The Cardinals and Redskins (if Kirk Cousins leaves) are the most logical spots for Allen among those teams, but the Ravens, Chargers and Steelers could all take Allen as their quarterback of their future. -Walter




29. Jacksonville Jaguars:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
4/20: "If you read between the words on what Tom Coughlin and David Caldwell said and didn't way about certain players ... Semi-expansive about Lamar Jackson means they know he won't be there. ... Semi-tight lipped about Hayden Hurst means they hope he's there at 29." - Ryan O'Halloran, Florida Times-Union
This is O'Halloran reading between the lines of what the two Jaguars' decision-makers were saying about certain players. If O'Halloran is correct, the Jaguars like Hurst, who made a pre-draft visit to Jacksonville. -Walter


4/14: The Jaguars could take Mason Rudolph. - Benjamin Albright, 104.7 FM Denver
This is something Albright has said repeatedly on Twitter. Rudolph should be chosen on Day 2, but it wouldn't be the biggest surprise if a quarterback-hungry team like the Jaguars took him at the end of the opening round. -Walter




30. Minnesota Vikings:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
4/26: The Vikings, Patriots and Eagles are already taking calls for picks 30-32. - Adam Schefter, ESPN
In fact, Schefter says that six teams have called Minnesota already. This is understandable, as teams want the fifth-year option available for first-round picks. -Walter


4/24: "Vikings interest in Dallas Goedert is genuine." - Darren Wolfson, 1500ESPN
Minnesota will have to take Goedert at 30 (or trade down a few spots for him) because he won't be available at No. 62. Wolfson admits he doesn't know where Goedert is ranked among the Vikings' other potential first-round prospects. -Walter


4/14: Of the Vikings top-30 team visits, they've met with edge rushers more than any other position. -
Six edge rushers have visited, followed by five wide receivers and four offensive tackles. This is interesting for two reasons. First, the Vikings have two stellar edge rushers in Everson Griffen and Danielle Hunter, but they'll need depth there with Brian Robison set to retire soon. Second, the Vikings have selected six players who have visited over the past two drafts. -Walter






31. New England Patriots:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
4/26: The Vikings, Patriots and Eagles are already taking calls for picks 30-32. - Adam Schefter, ESPN
In fact, Schefter says that six teams have called Minnesota already. This is understandable, as teams want the fifth-year option available for first-round picks. -Walter


4/26: The Patriots have been "all over" Frank Ragnow. - Jeff Howe, The Athletic
Ragnow certainly has the measureables New England looks for in interior offensive linemen. The problem is that he may not be available at No. 23; we have Ragnow going 21st in our 2018 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


4/25: The Patriots' interest in Lamar Jackson is "legit." - Ian Rapoport, NFL Network
Jackson has met with New England on multiple occasions this offseason, so I'm sure Bill Belichick is intrigued by Jackson's abilities. The problem is, when have the Patriots made their intentions public? I can't remember the last time they selected a player in the draft they were widely linked to. This might just be a ruse to get teams to trade ahead of them for Jackson so a better player falls to them at No. 23. -Walter


4/19: "The Pats conducted an individual workout with Luke Falk and are said to be very keen on him." - Mike Giardi, NBC Sports Boston
Falk is now the third quarterback the Patriots have been linked to, with the others being Josh Rosen and Lamar Jackson. Given that the Patriots never show their cards, it wouldn't be a surprised if they didn't draft any of these quarterbacks. -Walter


4/18: The Patriots' interest in Josh Rosen is "real." - Doug Kyed, NESN
We'll see if the Patriots do something reported by the media, but Kyed is a great reporter I trust. Kyed suggested that the Patriots would conduct a trade with the 49ers, whom, as Kyed said "owe the Patriots" for Jimmy Garoppolo, since Bill Belichick reportedly turned down a better deal from Cleveland. -Walter


4/15: The Patriots have been "increasingly tied" to Mason Rudolph. - Rob Rang, NFL Draft Scout
That probably means they won't be taking him. I can't recall the last time New England selected a player it has been heavily linked to. Kyle Lauletta probably makes more sense on Day 2. -Walter


4/4: The Patriots have interest in Josh Rosen. - Benjamin Albright, 104.7 FM Denver
Rosen and Baker Mayfield are the two most logical players the Patriots could be moving up for. It used to be widely believed that Mayfield would be the fourth quarterback off the board, but Tony Pauline reported that the Jets prefer Baker Mayfield, so Rosen might be the quarterback who could slip out of the top three. Some in the NFL are scared of Rosen because of his lack of love for football, and other various off-the-field issues, but there's no denying his pure talent. It would make sense for New England to make a move if he gets past Denver at No. 5. -Walter


4/3: The Patriots' acquisition of the Rams' first-round pick was all about trying to move up for a quarterback. - Jason La Canfora, CBS
It's unclear why the Patriots will want to move up for a quarterback, given that Tom Brady will be playing until he's 90. In all seriousness, New England now has some serious ammo to make a trade, given that it has the Nos. 23 and 31 picks, as well as two second-rounders. With their first-round selections alone, per the NFL Draft Trade Value Chart, they have 1,360 points, which is enough to move up to No. 9 overall (1,350). Perhaps moving up to No. 8 is possible as well if the Patriots throw in a fifth-round pick. Either way, the most logical target is Baker Mayfield, and moving ahead of the Dolphins, Bills and Cardinals is something New England would need to do to secure him. -Walter


3/4: The Lions, Texans and Patriots are interested in Christian Sam. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
Sam weighed in at 6-1, 244. He's viewed as a mid-day-three prospect, so those teams could target him in the fifth round. -Walter


2/28: Virginia safety Quin Blanding is a New England Patriots-type player. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
Pauline added a "wink, wink," implying that the Patriots like Blanding, whom he pegged as a third- or fourth-round prospect. -Walter




32. Philadelphia Eagles:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
4/26: The Vikings, Patriots and Eagles are already taking calls for picks 30-32. - Adam Schefter, ESPN
In fact, Schefter says that six teams have called Minnesota already. This is understandable, as teams want the fifth-year option available for first-round picks. -Walter


4/25: "The Eagles are likely to trade out of No. 32 unless Derrius Guice is on the board." - Jon Ledyard, NDT Scouting
If the Eagles take Guice, it will be quite the shock, given that the LSU product was engaged in a shouting match with Howie Roseman. -Walter


4/10: "Eagles have a lot of interest in Natrell Jamerson. No visits or private workouts, but i'm told there have been a ton of phone calls between the parties." - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
The Eagles don't need a safety for the present, but Jamerson could potentially start by 2019. He's a fourth- or fifth-round prospect. -Walter


4/5: The Eagles have shown consistent interest in Boise State LB Leighton Vander Esch. - Turron Davenport, USA Today
Vander Esch would be a great addition to the Eagles. The problem is that he could be long gone by the time Philadelphia is on the clock. We have Vander Esch as a top-20 pick in our 2018 NFL Mock Draft. -Walter


3/5: The Eagles have been offered a second-round pick for Nick Foles. - Geoff Mosher, FanRag
It's not enough. The Eagles received more for Sam Bradford, and Foles is better and healthier. Bill Polian said Philadelphia could get two first-round picks for Foles, which would be too much for a team to surrender, but it's closer to what the Eagles will receive for Foles, should they deal him. Either way, we know general manager Howie Roseman will be extremely patient. -Walter


3/5: The Eagles would love to draft Boise State linebacker Leighton Vander Esch, but don't believe he'll be available. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
Philadelphia, with very few needs, is in position to take the best player available. That could be Vander Esch, but Pauline has reported that Vander Esch won't make it past the Steelers at No. 28. -Walter




54. Kansas City Chiefs:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
4/24: Keep an eye on Tennessee RB John Kelly for the Chiefs. - Charlie Campbell, WalterFootball.com
Charlie points out in his NFL Draft Week Rumor Mill that the Chiefs are looking for a mid-round running back in the wake of Spencer Ware's injury. Kelly, according to Charlie, is someone Kansas City could target in the middle rounds. -Walter


4/17: The Chiefs are a candidate to trade up for a cornerback. - Daniel Jeremiah, NFL Network
Kansas City doesn't have a first-round pick because of the Patrick Mahomes trade, but it does have two thirds and two fourths. Cornerback is a very likely target in the wake of Marcus Peters leaving. -Walter


3/1: "Told a big focus at the NFL Combine for the Chiefs was to interview numerous offensive lineman. This is a deep position in this draft and that could be a hint as to which direction KC might go in round 2,3 or 4." - , ChiefsInsider
This makes sense, as the Chiefs have to protect their young quarterback. -Walter


3/1: Chiefs GM Brett Veach indicated that his team wants speedy receivers this offseason. -
Veach pointed out that new quarterback Patrick Mahomes has a cannon for an arm, so it would make sense to add some players who can stretch the field. -Walter






68. Houston Texans:
Comment on these NFL Rumors
3/4: The Lions, Texans and Patriots are interested in Christian Sam. - Tony Pauline, DraftAnalyst.com
Sam weighed in at 6-1, 244. He's viewed as a mid-day-three prospect, so those teams could target him in the fifth round. -Walter
