NFL Draft Rumors: Michael Floyd, Quinton Coples, Cordy Glenn, Kevin Zeitler, Dwayne Allen

Michael Floyd

Lenn Robbins of the New York Post writes that Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd is being “eyed” by the Jets.

There’s no question that the Jets could use another receiver and Floyd would have to be considered at #16, but there’s really guarantee that he’ll be available to them by the time they’re on the clock. Anyone of the Jaguars, Bills, and Cardinals could grab him with their respective first-round picks. The Jets have been rumored to be targeting defensive players like Mark Barron and Melvin Ingram, but there’s also been some talk that they might consider trading up from #16. Should they do so, it’s hard to imagine that it would be for a receiver, since there’s a very deep class of wide out prospects this year.

Quinton Coples

SI’s Peter King writes that the evaluations of North Carolina DE Quinton Coples are “all over the board,” which has led to some NFL teams giving him a second-round grade.

The hits keep coming for the UNC DE as his stock continues to trend downward. There’s a pretty good chance that he drops out of the Top 15 picks completely. Over the weekend, there was some talk that the Bengals would consider him at #17, so they could be the first serious option for him. The Bears are another possibility at #19 as they are reportedly looking for help on the defensive line.

I’d honestly be surprised to see him drop out of the Top 32 picks as his upside should be enough to get him drafted in the first-round.

Cordy Glenn

SI’s Peter King reports Georgia OT Cordy Glenn is one of the Arizona Cardinals targets for the #13 overall pick.

Glenn’s draft stock has been fluctuating a bit in recent as there’s been some questions regarding his toughness. At the start of the draft process, evaluators weren’t sure if he was going to be able to play offensive tackle at the next level, but he’s seems like he should be able to handle the position.

Glenn could go anywhere from #13 to #23 overall depending on how things play out on Thursday night.

Kevin Zeitler

Here’s some more from Peter King.

King writes that there’s a “lot of love” for Wisconsin G Kevin Zeitlerlow” in the first round.

Zeitler has been a very impressive player throughout the draft process and his draft stock has risen considerably in recent weeks. He even has shot to make it into the backend of the first-round, but it seems like he’s a safer bet to be an early second-round pick.

We have him going to the Seahawks at #43 in the second-round of our 2012 NFL Mock Draft.

Dwayne Allen

According to the Newark Star-Ledger, taking someone a tight end like Clemsons’ Dwayne Allen at the end of the second-round makes more sense for the Giants than grabbing Stanford TE Coby Fleener at #32.

The Giants seem to prefer a tight end that’s capable of being an effective blocker as well as a receiver, which is something that Allen should be able to provide them.

There’s also been some talk that the Colts could look to grab both Andrew Luck and Coby Fleener with their first-two draft picks, but there’s also a chance that they too could pass on Fleener in favor a tight end in the middle-rounds.
