Jason Cole of B/R reports that Ole Miss OT Laremy Tunsil’s decision to not fun a 40-yard dash on Monday is considered largely irrelevant to NFL scouts, as there’s question whether any offensive tackle should ever run a forty during the draft process.
Cole mentions that there is some concern about Tunsil’s hamstring, given that it’s still an issue for him.
As of now, Cole mentions that Tunsil is still expected to be the No. 1 overall, barring a trade down. If the Titans do move out of the No. 1 spot, Cole thinks Tunsil could drop three or four spots depending.
- Todd Archer of ESPN wonders if the Cowboys could use G Ronald Leary to trade for a backup quarterback. Archer admits that Leary is a valuable offensive lineman, but he could have some interest from other teams in need of some depth at guard.
- Archer mentions that grabbing a receiver early in the draft makes sense, but he wonders if this could come down to what they do in the first round. Archer adds that if they use their first-round pick on an offensive player, it’s likely they’ll turn their attention to the defensive side of the ball in the coming rounds.
- According to Archer, one player worth watching as a breakout candidate for the Cowboys in 2016 is WR Brice Butler.
- Rand Getlin reports that UCLA WR/KR Devin Fuller worked out in front of multiple members of the Falcons braintrust on Monday.
Paul Kuharsky spoke with an NFL offensive coach who who believes Titans LT Taylor Lewan wouldn’t have any issues moving to right tackle next year if they end up taking Ole Miss OT Laremy Tunsil No. 1 overall.
“I love his demeanor, he wouldn’t care where you put him,” said the offensive coach.
