Draft Rumors: Tim Williams, Running Backs, 49ers, Bears

Tim Williams

  • According to Albert Breer, Alabama pass rusher Tim Williams is a top 10 pick based on talent, but he would be surprised if he’s selected in round one and could fall even further than that, due to a few concerns.

Running Backs

  • In regards to the running backs, Albert Breer mentions that there are a few teams who like FSU RB Dalvin Cook more than LSU’s Leonard Fournette because Cook fits the modern game better.
  • There are also teams that prefer Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon to Cook, but he’s still hearing that Mixon will likely be a second- or third-round pick when all is said and done.

Draft

  • Albert Breer says that with no quarterbacks building momentum at the top of the draft and this year’s class being deep at a number of positions, there doesn’t appear to be much interest from teams in moving up. In fact,
  • Breer says that teams don’t see all that much difference between the No. 5 – No. 20 picks.
  • Florida QB Austin Appleby will attend the Buccaneers’ local pre-draft workout on April 14. (Greg Auman)

  • The Texans will work out Iowa State CB Jomal Wiltz. (Aaron Wilson)
  • Baylor WR K.D. Cannon has visits scheduled with the Lions on April 9 and with the Rams on April 10. (Charean Williams)

49ers

  • Albert Breer would be surprised if 49ers new GM John Lynch didn’t try to trade out of the No. 2 spot and move back to get someone like Alabama LB Reuben Foster or LSU RB Leonard Fournette.

Bears

  • Albert Breer mentions that the word right now is that the Bears like both LSU S Jamal Adams and Ohio State S Malik Hooker but the idea of taking a safety that high in the draft could be a concern for them and possibly lead to them trade down.
