  • Adam Schefter reports that rain is in the forecast for USC QB Sam Darnold‘s Pro Day on Wednesday. However, Darnold still intends to throw after skipping that portion of the Combine, even if it rains.
  • Peter King writes that “there’s a good chance the Colts aren’t done trading yet” despite trading down three spots with the Jets last weekend. King thinks the Colts could trade down the board again before next months draft.
  • King says he would trade back with the Bills if he was in GM Chris Ballard’s position and see if they’ll part with No. 53 and No. 96 overall.
  • King’s gut feeling is that the Bills will trade hard to trade all the way up to No. 2 overall with the Giants.
  • If the Giants keep the pick, King expects them to take a quarterback.
  • Josh Norris reports that Stanford S Justin Reid has five visits scheduled with the Eagles, Lions, Steelers, Panthers and Seahawks.

While the Jets have already traded up in the first round to put themselves in position to for a quarterback, Bills GM Brandon Beane says he’s “not ready to pull the trigger.”

“The truth? Most of these quarterbacks I’ve only spent 15 minutes with,” Beane said, via Peter King of “I haven’t spent enough time to have an opinion about any of them yet, honestly. I actually sent a little note to our [scouts] yesterday. We got six weeks to get our board together.

“I am not there yet, knowing if we can or will move up again. I want Sean to get to know all of them. We’re just keeping an open mind. Where we’re at, we’ve got the picks, we’ve got the draft capital. I’m not ready to pull the trigger.

  • A rumor surfaced Monday that the Bills had contacted the Browns about possibly trading up to No. 1 overall.
  • However, a league source tells Sal Capaccio that Buffalo has not contacted the Browns about the first pick in the draft.
  • According to Ian Rapoport, the Bills signed OL Russell Bodine to a two-year contract worth $5 million. Rapoport adds that Bodine actually turned down a long-term deal from the Bengals that included low guarantees and about for a contract he believes is best for his future.
