Defensive players figure to dominate at NFL Draft

Conley is considered a potential first-round selection in the 2017 NFL Draft, which begins Thursday. If they do, it's likely Garrett will be snatched up by the 49ers, who hold the second overall pick.

It will also be interesting to see if K Conrad Ukropina, Francis Owusu or Michael Rector (both wideouts) get drafted in the later rounds, with a direct look at the 6 round.

In his re-draft Harrison has the Texans instead taking quarterback Derek Carr who ended up going to the Oakland Raiders in the second round. But at No. 12, we made a decision to go with Mitchell Trubisky, who has been linked to the Browns all offseason. And when it comes to the draft, analytics are being used more and more. This isn't a shot at Thomas but just historical facts.

Eliot Harrison of has posted a 2014 NFL redraft. Posts on social media from players, agents, a variety of media outlets, sports writers, and draft specialist website were extremely helpful. Trubisky could be a great fit for Cleveland after finishing with 41 touchdown passes and only 10 interceptions in three years at North Carolina; in that same time, Browns QBs threw 42 picks. We've talked about SF so let's move to Chicago at #3.

Surprisingly, however, the researchers' data showed that it could be worth the risk to draft players with character concerns.

The Bears have rounded up a big mass of mediocrity apparently hoping they can turn someone else's trash into a football team. Certainly the team could use someone to take Connor Barwin's place even though they did sign veteran Chris Long.

Adrian Peterson, Saints closing in on contract
Hightower produced 100-yard games in each of the past two years while Ingram was either injured or temporarily benched. The Vikings moved on from the 32-year-old running back this offseason, instead signing former Raider Latavius Murray.

"I understand the arguments about shelf life and maybe you can find running backs later in the draft".

"I'm told the Dallas Cowboys have Adoree' Jackson as a first-round target, and we've had the cornerback being selected by the team in our past three mock drafts", Pauline writes. I think his last name helps this pick. He can learn from guys like Charles Johnson and Julius Peppers and he won't be rushed into a job where he needs to make an immediate impact.

The Browns are a bad team. Williams was a better player towards the middle of his career, but is only average right now. Is Ron Brooks recovering from his quad injury sufficiently enough to where the Eagles think he can be an effective nickel corner, as he was prior to going down?

Fournette is the closest thing to an Ezekiel Elliott-type of prospect in this draft, and adding that kind of player would make this a very scary Bengals offense.

I think Josh can be that guy. Things could get dicey, however, if there isn't a run on corners or the Eagles pick someone else. Quinn, Charlie Frye and Brian Hoyer all grew up as Browns fans, but none was able to lead the turnaround. Despite the fact that they need a quarterback, desperately, it seems to be the consensus ideology that the Browns should go with the best player available and remedy their QB issue later in the draft.

"I may be insane but when I watch (Mahomes") tape, just as a scout, I get excited", one personnel man told McGinn before another warned: "He has the best arm of the group, but he plays insane. The moment he gets drafted, he will be told he can't do this and he can't do that and that is fine because he's been hearing that his whole life.
