Jason Cole of B/R reports that NFL GMs, executives, and coaches around the league are all concerned about the lack of depth at tight end in this year’s draft.
According to Cole, Arkansas’ Hunter Henry is considered the best tight end in this year’s class, but is seen as more of a mid second-round pick.
Cole mentions that NFL teams are considering taking lesser talents at the position as high as the second round.
Stanford TE Austin Hooper has 20 visits lined up and could be the second tight end to come off the board, even though may only have been a third- or fourth-round pick in the past few years.
Peter Schrager reports that Bills’ brass dined with six Ohio State prospects on Thursday including: QB Cardale Jones, CB Eli Apple, LB Darron Lee, OT Taylor Decker, DT Adolphus Washington, and DB Vonn Bell.
According to Rand Getlin, the Cardinals worked out Eastern Washington offensive linemen Clay DeBord and Aaron Neary.
According to Armando Salguero, the Dolphins expect to receive third, fourth and seven-round compensatory picks in 2017 for losing players in free agency.
Miami is clearly focused on ensuring that they receive future compensatory picks, which means it’s unlikely they’ll make any major free agent additions until May 12 at the earliest.
Salguero also writes that the Dolphins’ interest in free agent CBGreg Toler is to ensure that they have some draft flexibility this year.
