NFL Draft Rumors and Buzz: April 19, 2011
Below, you can find various tidbits of NFL Draft rumors and information offered by Mel Kiper and Adam Schefter via Twitter. I'll be tweeting other rumors at @walterfootball
Adam Schefter: My sense is that the Giants take the best offensive lineman available at No. 19.
Adam Schefter: There's an 80-percent chance the Panthers take Cam Newton with the No. 1 pick.
Mel Kiper: Adrian Clayborn could go 20 to Tampa, 24 to New Orleans and 27 to New Orleans.
Mel Kiper: Torrey Smith is gone by the Falcons' late second-round pick.
Mel Kiper: I can't see A.J. Green getting past Cincinnati.
Mel Kiper: Would Cam Newton be the biggest reach at No. 1 in NFL Draft history? No - according to my ratings, it would be Jeff George to Indianapolis in 1990.
Mel Kiper: I have Brandon Harris just slightly ahead of Ras-I Dowling.
Mel Kiper: I have Jake Kirkpatrick as a late-rounder or undrafted free agent.
Mel Kiper: No. 15 is way high for Christian Ponder. Even early second round would be pushing it in my opinion.
Mel Kiper: Corey Liuget is a disruptive force with the abiliy to complement Robbins in St. Louis very effectively.
Mel Kiper: Brooks Reed isn't real fluid, which is a concern. That was the problem with Vernon Gholston.
Mel Kiper: I don't think Titus Young will be there for St. Louis in the second round. He could go late first.
Mel Kiper: Green Bay would be a perfect fit for Titus Young - a vertical deep threat and a dangerous return threat. He would make sense for Atlanta too.
Mel Kiper: I think Tyrod Taylor will go in the fourth round.
Mel Kiper: The Vikings should take Da'Quan Bowers, or trade down and look at Jake Locker.
