NFL Rumors: Draft, Chiefs, Cowboys, Lions & Titans

Draft

  • Duke S Jeremy Cash said he is having a pre-draft meeting with the Steelers on Thursday. (Alex Marvez)
  • Brad Biggs reports that Bears OL coach Dave Magazu attended Notre Dame’s Pro Day.
  • Matt Miller of Bleacher Report graded TCU QB/WR Trevone Boykin as an undrafted free agent or developmental quarterback.
  • Miller views Arizona LB Scooby Wright as a late-round option that will struggle making it on an NFL roster.

Chiefs
