Path to the Draft: March 30, 2011
Below, you can find various tidbits of NFL Draft rumors and information offered by Mike Mayock, Michael Lombardi and the rest of the Path to the Draft
crew on the NFL Network. I posted these in my forum, but I thought it would be better to keep all the draft rumors together in this section. I'll be tweeting these during Path to the Draft
Michael Lombardi: Jake Locker (39-41 at his Pro Day) was accurate with the football. There were not a lot of outside-the-number throws
Michael Lombardi: Pete Carroll was the only head coach at Washington's Pro Day. Locker's probably not high on a lot of boards.
Charley Casserly: The people I talked to wanted better ball placement from Jake Locker. I don't think it changes anything.
Charley Casserly: I wouldn't take Jake Locker in the first two rounds.
Charley Casserly: I don't see Robert Quinn in the top 10.
Michael Lombardi: If I were a 3-4 team, I would be concerned with Robert Quinn being in space.
Charley Casserly: Marvin Austin has first-round ability, but will probably go in the second round.
Charley Casserly: Greg Little might have the best hands in the draft. He has terrific body control. A 2nd-round talent, but rated lower
Michael Lombardi: Greg Little is a rare athlete. If he checks out, he's going to be a big-time player. He's a hit-or-miss prospect
Charley Casserly doesn't think Von Miller's lawsuit will affect his draft status.
Charley Casserly: Von Miller is a top-five pick. Absolutely. One of the safest players in this draft.
Charley Casserly: Kevin Kolb would be the 2nd-rated QB in this year's draft. I'd have him only behind Blaine Gabbert.
Charley Casserly says that the Cardinals should give up the No. 5 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft for Kevin Kolb.
Charley Casserly: I would have '99 Champ Bailey ahead of '11 Patrick Peterson. Bailey is a faster player and has better ball skills.
Bucky Brooks reporting that Tyron Smith has a phenomenal Pro Day, but doesn't seem him playing left tackle. A "top-20 pick."
Charley Casserly: Tyron Smith is a better prospect than Jason Smith coming out of Baylor.
Charley Casserly: 16 offensive line coaches have met with Lehigh G Will Rackley. You're talking 2nd round here.
