Jason Cole of Fansided, citing a top league personnel man, reports that the Broncos will not be drafting a quarterback at No. 10 overall.
“The Broncos are open to anything at that spot, but not quarterback,” said Cole’s source. “They don’t want to do that to (veteran quarterback Joe) Flacco after they just got him.”
- Ian Rapoport mentions the Jets as a team to keep an eye on to trade down from No. 3 overall with the Redskins being a possible trade partner.
- Rapoport mentions that Jets GM Mike Maccagnan has been “very clear” that he is open to trading.
- Rapoport adds that teams around the league believe the Raiders will take either Kyler Murray or Dwayne Haskins if they are available at No. 4.
- ESPN’s Rich Cimini believes the Jets will take Alabama DT Quinnen Williams at No. 3.
- Cimini says a rival personnel source thinks the Jets take Houston DT Ed Oliver, but he believes Oliver isn’t a scheme fit.
- Cimini adds a trade down anywhere from No. 4 to No. 15 remains a possibility.
- Ian Rapoport reports that some teams around the NFL believe the Raiders would draft Kyler Murray or Dwayne Haskins at No. 4 overall if they are available.
- Although Vic Tafur of The Athletic believes the Raiders like Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins, he does not think they would draft him at No. 4 overall.
- Tafur writes that “this smoke is good” for the Raiders regarding their interest in Haskins, given it could result in a team trading ahead of them and pushing Alabama DL Quinnen Williams to four.
- If Haskins falls “to the teens,” Tafur would not be surprised to see the Raiders trade up from No. 24 to draft him.
- Should Williams not be available at No. 4, Tafur expects the Raiders to either draft Houston DT Ed Oliver or trade down.
- Tafur could see the Raiders targetting Michigan DE Rashan Gary or Florida State OLB Brian Burns if they trade back from No. 4 overall.
- Regarding Kentucky EDGE Josh Allen, Tafur does not think he is a good fit for Raiders DC Paul Guenther‘s defense and mentions that Allen is not great at setting the edge against the run.
- Dan Graziano does not think the Raiders are planning to take a quarterback at No. 4 or move up to take one, but one scenario that has come up is the idea of moving up to get Nick Bosa.
- If the Raiders keep both of their late-first rounders, Graziano expects them to use one of them on an offensive playmaker such as Josh Jacobs, one of the top tight ends, or maybe even Marquise Brown.
