Jason Cole of B/R reports that the draft stock for Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott could be the most volatile right now.
According to Cole, there are still some who believe the Cowboys could take Elliott as high as No. 4 overall.
However, there are still concerns about the idea of selecting a running back so high in the draft.
Cole believes Elliott is most likely to end up between the Browns at No. 8 and the Giants No. 10 overall with his floor likely being No. 13 to the Dolphins.
Ronnie Stanley & Jack Conklin
According to Jason Cole, there is a growing debate among NFL executives regarding who is the second-best offensive tackle in this year’s class between Notre Dame’s Ronnie Stanley and Michigan State’s Jack Conklin.
Cole says that most coaches like Conklin’s toughness. Although, others believe his best position could be at right tackle or possibly guard.
Stanley, however, is considered to be more of a “technician” like former Jets LT D’Brickashaw Ferguson.
Meanwhile, Matt Miller reports that the buzz regarding Conklin is real and there’s talk of him possibly being taken in the Top 10.
According to Greg Auman, Northern Iowa LB Brett McMakin and Southern Illinois LB Brandon Williams are both being talked about as potential late-round/undrafted signings for the Buccaneers.
Jets GM Mike Maccagnan on if he would consider rescinding Muhammad Wilkerson’s franchise tag: “The simple answer is no. I don’t view that as an option.“
Maccagnan said that, on a whole, this is an “average” quarterback draft class, and not a historic or elite class. (Darryl Slater)
