NFL Notes: Draft, Dolphins, Falcons, Giants, & Packers

Draft

  • Matt Miller reports that Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer is still undecided about entering the 2017 NFL Draft, but he’s also torn on whether to stay in college and risk not being further developed by Brian Kelly.
  • According to Miller, Texas RB D’Onta Foreman is expected to declare for the 2017 draft if HC Charlie Strong ends up being fired.
    Miller mentions that the report of the Browns “honing in” on UNC QB Mitch Trubisky is “very possible.”
  • In regards to LSU RB Leonard Fournette, Miller says that scouts aren’t concerned about his ankle injury, despite a report that he has a “chronic” ankle condition that could require surgery.
  • Miller believes Clemson QB Deshaun Watson could have a Teddy Bridgewater-like tumble down boards next year and suggests the 49ers as a good fit for him. Although, he says that if he were running the 49ers, he’d feel better about trading the Patriots their second-round pick for backup QB Jimmy Garoppolo.
