NFL Notes: Draft, Buccaneers, Eagles, Seahawks
- Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com polled five executives about who they view as the best defensive back in this year’s draft class. Ohio State S Malik Hooker and LSU S Jamal Adams both got two votes while Ohio State CB Marshon Lattimore came away with one vote.

- Eliot Shorr-Parks writes that the Eagles could end up coming away from this year’s draft with two running backs and completely overhauling the position.
- Shorr-Parks considers it “unlikely, but impossible” that the Eagles will use their first-round pick on a running back.
- He suggests either taking Tennessee’s Alvin Kamara and Texas’ D’Onta Foreman or a combination of Pittsburgh’s James Connor and San Diego State’s Donnel Pumphrey in the middle round of the draft.
- Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times writes that there are still positions the Seahawks could address in the weeks leading up to this year’s draft including receiver, backup quarterback, and defensive line.
- Seattle brought in WR Kamar Aiken for a visit, but he elected to sign with the Colts last week. Rod Streater has also been linked to the Seahawks, but there’s hasn’t any buzz about him in recent days.
- Condotta mentions that Colin Kaepernick is an unlikely option for the Seahawks, given that he’s likely targeting more money than Seattle is willing to spend on the position and can’t offer him even an opportunity to compete for the starting job.
- As for defensive line help, Condotta could see them re-signing veteran DT Tony McDaniel, who played pretty well for them last year. Otherwise, this could be a position they fill in this year’s draft.
