- Ian Rapoport reports that the Browns at No. 32, the Titans, at No. 33 and the Cowboys at No. 34 overall are all receiving plenty of phones about potential trades.
- Jason La Canfora mentions that if Michigan State QB Connor Cook is still on the board for the Bills in round two, it could very well be where he comes off the board. Although, La Canfora adds that it would not be surprising to see Cook go even higher than that.
A personnel executive tells Jason La Canfora that he isn’t buying the Browns’ approach towards building their roster, which has included moving down twice from the No. 2 overall pick.
“What they’re doing is asset management, it’s not building a team,” the personnel executive said. “Even if Coleman is a player — and that’s debatable at that pick — how are they getting him the ball? What are you going to do with him, if that is your line and this is your quarterback? They have no team. It’s a collection of players, but if this is analytics — it’s not building a team.
“Look at the last five teams picking Thursday night. They are picking there because they won the most games. What did they all do? They all took front seven players, and Kansas City probably would have done the same thing if they didn’t trade out. And I don’t like the guard that San Francisco moved up to take there, but it’s another lineman. The best teams are usually doing that, and everybody else is chasing receivers.”
- Charlie Campbell of WalterFootball reports that UCLA LB Myles Jack and EKU DE/OLB Noah Spence are both in the running to be the second-round pick tonight.
- However, Campbell adds that Jacksonville is still weighing the knee concerns regarding Jacks.
- Mark Long reports that the Jaguars are actually more likely to trade down in round two, than move up from No. 38 overall.
- Sources tell Vincent Bonsignore that it’s “possible” the Rams will find trade partner for either quarterbacks Nick Foles or Case Keenum today.
- Bonsignore adds that a lot will hinge on what quarterbacks end up geting drafted in the second round.
