NFL Notes: Draft, Jaguars, Texans


  • Per Mike Clay, ESPN’s Adam Schefter has spoken with teams that don’t have a first-round grade on Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins.

  • Marrone says RB Leonard Fournette will not face any additional discipline for his arrest while driving with a suspended license last week. (Michael DiRocco)
  • Marrone called it a mistake and says he was arrested for a similar offense when he was an assistant coach at Georgia Tech. 


Texans HC Bill O’Brien says he has high expectations for QB Deshaun Watson who can focus solely on improving as a player instead of rehabbing an injury this offseason. 

“I don’t think [Watson] has a ceiling,” O’Brien said via Pro Football Talk. “I think that it’s hard to put a ceiling on a guy like that because of who he is, how he works, his ability, his skill set [and] his passion for the game.  He has had, now this season, a whole offseason of no limitations and coming back to the offseason program, a full go, can do everything. Training camp, full go. Last year, that wasn’t the case. He was limited in training camp, limited in the offseason program, so now he’ll have a full offseason, which I think will be big.”
