  • Goedert has met with several teams including the Saints, Chargers, Seahawks, Ravens, Dolphins, Bills, Panthers, Lions, Texans, Patriots, Eagles, Jaguars, Raiders, Giants and Jets.
  • Of this group, Pauline says that there is “intense interest” from the Dolphins and Ravens.

Tight Ends

  • Tony Pauline says that some teams believe South Carolina TE Hayden Hurst is the best player at his position and could be a first-round pick when as is said and done.
  • According to Pauline, some believe Indiana’s Ian Thomas could be a three-down player in the NFL. He has worked out for the Texans and Vikings and received “a lot of interest” from the 49ers.
  • Oklahoma’s Mark Andrews is scheduled to visit with the Jaguars this week, but grades from NFL teams are “all over the place,” according to Pauline.


According to Albert Breer, the belief around the NFL is that late first-round picks lack value in this year’s draft. Breer says that the consensus he’s heard is that the difference between 22 and 52 is minimal this year.
