NFL Notes: Draft, Broncos, Raiders, Redskins, Saints

Draft

  • Tony Pauline reports that Western Michigan QB Zach Terrell has a workout set up with the Lions.
    According to Pauline, the Bengals have spent an “enormous amount” of time with Western Michigan OL Taylor Moton and the Lions but him through drills.
  • The Steelers reportedly had dinner with Wisconsin OLBs T.J. Watt and Vince Biegel. Pittsburgh likes both players but wouldn’t take Watt in round one and believe he’ll be gone by the end of round two. Biegel has the best shot of the two to end up with the Steelers.

  • Katherine Terrell reports that the Bengals met with Wisconsin RBs Corey Clement and Dare Ogunbowale at their Pro Day on Wednesday.
