NFL Notes: Draft, Bears, Panthers, Titans

Draft

  • Michigan OL Erik Magnuson met with the Saints on Thursday night. (Tony Pauline)
  • According to Pauline, Michigan WR Amara Darboh has recently met with the Titans, Panthers, Patriots and Saints.
  • Pauline also writes that New Haven LB Tyler Condit met with the Giants and Colts after his Pro Day workout.
  • Aaron Wilson reports that Lamar RB Kade Harrington has been invited to the Texans‘ local prospect day and will have an official visit with the Giants.
  • Nick Underhill reports that the Saints invited Tulane OL Chris Taylor to their local prospect day.

Bears

  • Jeff Dickerson of ESPN believes the Bears are interested in Clemson QB Deshaun Watson, but not with their No. 3 overall pick.
  • To acquire him, Dickerson writes that Chicago would either have to trade down from No. 3 overall, possibly into backend of the first round.
  • In the end, Dickerson feels the Bears’ best options at No. 3 overall are to take either Stanford DE Solomon Thomas or LSU S Jamal Adams.

Panthers

Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart said he believes it would be a good thing for the team to add another running back to the active roster.

I mean, it’s a good thing. You always want fresh legs. Fresh legs mean a lot, especially in the fourth quarter,” said Stewart, via the Max Henson of the Panthers’ official site. “Having somebody potentially come in here … there are a lot of good running backs in this draft class, a lot of talent. Definitely open arms to get somebody in here that wants to win and understands that. We’re better as a fist than we are as an open hand.

Titans

  • Jim Wyatt of the Titans’ official site does not expect Alabama TE O.J. Howard to be on the board at No. 18 overall pick.
  • Wyatt does not think the Titans will pursue free agent RB Adrian Peterson.
  • As for their No. 5 overall pick, Wyatt believes a possible trade is still in play and any exchange will likely occur when the Titans are on the clock.
  • Wyatt expects the Titans to select a wide receiver at some point in the draft but is unsure of how early they would target one.
  • In the end, Wyatt says it is a “definite possibility” for the Titans to draft two wide receivers but is unsure if they will do so with their two first round picks for “several reasons.”
  • Wyatt also listed South Alabama’s Gerald Everett, Iowa’s George Kittle and Michigan’s Jake Butt as intriguing tight end options for the Titans to consider.
