DE Robert Mathis said that he is hoping to be recovered from an Achilles tear in time for training camp. However, owner Jim Irsay admitted that Mathis could return by November as a worst-case scenario.
Wells mentions that the Colts re-signing free agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw is “highly unlikely“, as he is still recovering from the broken leg he sustained in Week 11.
Wells could see the Colts coming away from this year’s draft with a wide receiver at “some point.“
OTGosder Cherilus is expected to have the first opportunity to start at right tackle.
However, Wells views Cherilus as a short-term answer at right tackle and expects the Colts to address that position during the draft.
Bill Williamson of ESPN would be “shocked” if the Raiders did not select USC DL Leonard Williams if he is available at No. 4 overall.
If Oakland decides to trade down, Williamson views the Jets (No. 6), Bears (No. 7), Falcons (No. 8), Rams (No. 10), Browns (No. 12, No. 19), Dolphins (No. 14) and Eagles (No. 20) as possible trade partners.
Paul Kuharsky of ESPN considers Alabama WR Amari Cooper to be a better fit for the Titans’ offense than West Virginia WR Kevin White.
If the Titans plan on drafting a receiver, Kuharsky could see Tennessee trading down to the No. 5 or 6 range.
The only veteran player that Kuharsky thinks the Titans could trade the No. 2 overall pick for is Chargers QB Philip Rivers.
