Draft Notes: Chargers, Chiefs, Falcons, Jets, Packers, & Raiders


  • Peter King mentions that Florida DE/OLB Dante Fowler would be a “great option” for the Jaguars if they can’t get USC DL Leonard Williams.
  • King loves WR Dorial Green-Beckham or RB Todd Gurley for the Seahawks No. 31 overall.
  • Tony Pauline reports that the Jets spent a “significant amount” of time with Miami WR Phillip Dorsett.
  • The Raiders were reportedly interested in Miami LB Denzel Perryman in the second round, according to Pauline. However, that may have changed after his Combine performance. (Tony Pauline)
  • Washington LB Hau’Oli Kikaha has reportedly been removed from a number of team’s draft boards because of medical red flags and the lack of next level athleticism. (Tony Pauline)


  • Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com offers some potential receiver targets for the Chargers in this year’s draft.
  • Williams suggests Kansas’ Tyler Lockett, Ohio State’s Devin Smith, Georgia’s Chris Conley, USC’s Nelson Agholor, and Florida State’s Rashad Greene as receivers to watch.


It seems unlikely that Houston will be playing elsewhere next year, but a number of evaluators have McKinney listed as an inside linebacker, not an edge player.


  • Peter King writes that the Falcons brass and HC Dan Quinn must have disappointed to see Clemson DE/OLB Vic Beasley have such a great Combine, as it could increase the chances of someone trading up ahead of them for Beasley.
  • Tony Pauline of DraftInsider.net reports that the Falcons will be looking for a pass rusher in the upcoming draft and Missouri DE/OLB Shane Ray was “constantly associated” with Atlanta as their No. 1 choice in round one.


  • According to Tony Pauline, the Packers have taken a liking to Miami WR Phillip Dorsett, which is interesting given that Randall Cobb is in line to be a free agent in the coming weeks.
  • Green Bay is reportedly “very high” on Clemson ILB Stephone Anthony, who reportedly had 16 official visits at the combine.
  • Pauline mentions that Anthony is a “favorite” of Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers.
