NFL Notes: Draft, Cardinals, Seahawks

     

Draft

  • Arkansas LB Dre Greenlaw will visit with the Texans, Seahawks, 49ers, Cowboys and others. (Aaron Wilson)
  • Washington S Taylor Rapp met with the Cardinals, Buccaneers, Saints, Raiders, Patriots and Steelers before his pro day. Rapp also has visits set up with the Cowboys, Lions, Rams, Giants and Panthers. (Tony Pauline)
  • Pauline says Washington DT Greg Gaines has caught the eyes of the Seahawks.
  • Washington OT Kaleb McGary met with the Bills, Saints, Seahawks and Packers before his pro day. McGary’s visit list includes the Patriots, Rams and Jaguars. The Falcons will fly out to work out McGary as well. 
  • Boston College OL Chris Lindstrom has a workout scheduled with the Titans Friday and the Falcons next week. He’ll also visit the Broncos, Eagles and Redskins. (Darren Wolfson)

Cardinals

  • The Athletic’s Jay Glazer expects the Cardinals to ask for a first-round pick in return for QB Josh Rosen because of his draft pedigree and low-cost contract. 
  • Glazer adds teams were all over the board on Rosen last year, which could make it harder for the Cardinals to find what they’re looking for.

Seahawks

Seahawks GM John Schneider explained that their approach to free agency this year has been influenced by the potential to add four compensatory picks in 2020.  

“I think just being able to kind of be a little bit more selective in terms of how we’re approaching free agency,” Schneider said via Tony Drovetto of the team’s official website. “Last year, we had some significant losses with Kam’s (Chancellor) injury and Cliff’s (Avril) injury and losing Luke (Willson) and Jimmy Graham leaving and Paul Richardson leaving. So I think we were a little bit more aggressive with the unrestricted guys. This year, we’re trying to be a little bit more selective with the cap casualty guys that don’t count toward your compensatory picks. Right now we’re looking at 11 picks in 2020, but we have four right now and I just spent the weekend looking at our board like, ‘that’s not cool.'”
