NFL Rumors: Garett Bolles, Buccaneers, Panthers, Ravens

Garett Bolles

  • Tony Pauline is hearing that Utah OT Garett Bolles, who is considered by a number of experts to be the top offensive lineman in this year’s draft class, could slip out of the first round.
  • Pauline says he still views Bolles as the top offensive lineman prospect in this year’s draft class.
  • Potential landing spots for Bolles, according to Pauline, include the Broncos, Giants, Raiders and Texans.


  • According to Todd McShay, the Buccaneers “really like” FSU RB Dalvin Cook and will “strongly consider” him at No. 19 overall.
  • This comes in contrast to what¬†Matt Miller¬†reported earlier in the day, which is that while the Bucs view Cook as a “perfect fit” for the Buccaneers, he’s unlikely to be their guy in round one due to off-the-field concerns.


  • According to Todd McShay, the Panthers “are getting a lot of love” as a potential landing spot for Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey at No. 8 overall, even if LSU RB Leonard Fournette is still on the board at that point.
  • McShay points out that the Panthers could use both a running back and a slot receiver and McCaffrey could help in both areas.
  • Interestingly enough, McShay also mentions that Panthers WRs coach Lance Taylor was McCaffrey’s running backs coach for three seasons at Stanford.


  • In regards to the Ravens, Tony Pauline has heard that Alabama OT Cam Robinson will be a consideration for them at No. 16, assuming they keep the pick.
  • However, if the trade down, UCLA OLB Takkarist McKinley is likely to be a target for the Ravens and is believed to be a favorite of Ozzie Newsome for the past six months.
