Draft Rumors: La’el Collins, Eagles, Redskins, & Saints

La’el Collins

Peter Schrager has spoken to executives from four different teams who believes LSU OL La’el Collins is “undraftable” until he’s fully exonerated from the murder investigation.

Draft

  • According to Daniel Jeremiah, the Rams love Miami OT Ereck Flowers while the Dolphins seem to really like Louisville WR DeVante Parker. Jeremiah seems to think this could be a trade scenario to watch.
  • Peter Schrager reports that Georgia RB Todd Gurley remains a hot name and could be picked in the Top 12.
  • According to Schrager, at least two teams view Shane Ray’s recent incident as a “one-time deal.” Schrager believes he’ll still be a first round pick.
  • There are reportedly mixed reviews regarding Oregon DL Arik Armstead, as some see him as a Top 20 pick, while others view him as a long-term project and second-round selection.
  • Lance Zierlein is hearing that ASU Damarious Randall could be drafted ahead of Alabama S Landon Collins tonight.

Eagles

  • Peter King of MMQB writes that while the Chargers and Browns could also be in play to trade up to No. 2 overall for Marcus Mariota, only the Eagles could put together the kind of package that it would take to make the move up the board.
  • King expects HC Chip Kelly to make a “serious effort” to acquire Mariota in the hours before the draft.
  • The Eagles would obviously have to either trade QB Sam Bradford to the Titans as part of the deal, or ship him to the Browns for a first-round pick and then flip that pick along with more compensation to Tennessee as part of a deal for Mariota.

Redskins

  • Dianna Marie Russini reports that the Redskins are “planning and hoping” to take Florida DL Dante Fowler at No. 5 overall.
  • Otherwise, they would like to trade back and grab an offensive lineman if possible.

Saints
