- While Seahawks CB Richard Sherman has been the subject of trade rumors for the past few weeks, Mike Freeman of B/R doesn’t think he’ll be traded at any point this year.
- Freeman mentions that he hasn’t been able to find a single person in the league who believes Seattle will trade Sherman and the overall belief is that it would cost too many draft picks to get him., and the Seahawks still believe Sherman is too good to trade. Again, anything is possible, but it doesn’t seem likely to happen.
- Beyond that, Freeman says that the Seahawks still believe Sherman is too good to trade, but admits anything is possible.
- On Thursday, Michael Lombardi of TheRinger, who first mentioned that the Seahawks would be open to trading Sherman for the right deal, reiterated that he believes Seattle would dump Sherman’s salary if possible. (NFLTR)

An AFC scout tells Lance Zierlein that he doesn’t think Michigan pass rusher Taco Charlton is close to Tennessee’s Derek Barnett as a prospect.
“I hear about all these traits that Taco (Charlton) has. What are they? He has long arms and ‘upside’ as a rusher. Is that it? (Derek) Barnett ran faster, worked out better at the combine, plays stronger and has way more production,” the scout said. “If Taco had really explosive numbers, that would be one thing, but I don’t even think we should be arguing about which guy goes earlier anymore.”

New Chargers HC Anthony Lynn said he believes Michigan S Jabrill Peppers can be a superstar if he focused on playing one position.
“He plays so many positions,” Lynn said of Peppers, via ESPN.com. “I believe if you put him at one position, I think he can be a superstar — it’s that simple. He’s been a superstar his whole life. I don’t think it’s going to stop because he’s in the National Football League. He’s got a lot of juice.”
Overall, Lynn believes this is a very good crop of safety prospects.
“There’s some good safeties coming out,” Lynn said. “I like Jamal Adams. I think Peppers can be a nice safety in the National Football League. Obi [Melifonwu], the young man from Connecticut, has a nice presence down in the box as a strong safety.”
