  • Mike Florio reports that teams are trying to speak to the six scouts that the Browns fired on Friday in order to discover Cleveland’s plans for the 2016 NFL Draft.
  • The six scouts that were let go include: Bobby DePaul, Mike Hagen, Matt Holland, Scott Aligo, Harrison Ritcher, and James Kirkland.


Jaguars DC Todd Wash mentioned that it will be a slow process for second-year DE Dante Fowler as he works his way back from a season-ending ACL tear.

“It’s going to be interesting to see how well he comes [back],” Wash said, via the Florida Times-Union. “He hasn’t done anything for over a year now. It will be a slow process to work him back into it and make sure he’s healthy. We don’t want to push him too quick. But I think him being around the whole year, understanding the package, being in the meetings, he’ll be a step ahead mentally than the normal rookie.


  • Manish Mehta reports that the Jets are hosting Ohio State TE Nick Vannett on Monday and Memphis QB Paxton Lynch on Thursday.


Mike Reiss of ESPN spoke with a personnel official who plays a “significant” role in setting his Patriots’ draft board who mentioned that there isn’t much difference between the No. 29 pick, which was forfeited, and a late second-round pick this year.

“I don’t think they’re losing much at that point,” the executive explained. “There is a reason there are top guys and then once you get to 20-32, there are more holes in these guys.”
