NFL Notes: Draft, Broncos, Giants, Lions & Panthers


  • An NFL executive tells Lance Zierlein of NFL.com that views Louisville QB Lamar Jackson as more of a first-round talent than Clemson QB Deshaun Watson: “The thing I took away from the (Clemson-Louisville) game is that Lamar Jackson has the look of a first (overall) pick, but I don’t think (Deshaun) Watson has the same look.
  • An NFC scout tells Zierlein that he’s cooling on Alabama DE/OLB Tim Williams: “I came into the season thinking one way on Tim Williams and now I’m thinking another way. He isn’t a factor on first downs and then off the field he’s getting in trouble, too. It’s starting to feel like he’s too high maintenance for me.”


  • Broncos QB Trevor Siemian (shoulder) returned to practice on Thursday and was able to throw in the early portion of practice. (Nicki Jhabvala)


  • Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. denied that he was told he would be suspended or benched if he had any further incidents. (Art Stapleton)


  • Justin Rogers reports that the injury settlement the Lions gave to LB Josh Bynes would allow them to re-sign him after Week 6, assuming of course that this is something they’d be interested in doing.


  • Panthers HC Ron Rivera told reporters on Thursday that QB Cam Newton remains in the concussion protocol, but he expects to have a decision regarding his status for Week 5 by the end of the week. (Joe Person)
  • Rivera did say that if Derek Anderson ends up being their starter this weekend, nothing changes in regards to their gameplan. (Tiffany Blackmon)
