  Dolphins | Julius Thomas feeling good    Sat Apr 22, 01:55 PM

Miami Dolphins TE Julius Thomas told the Florida Times-Union recently this spring 'is probably the best I've ever felt' and that head coach Adam Gase's offense 'feels a lot like home'.

Footballguys view: Thomas is a weapon, and he can certainly be a TD hog for the Dolphins in 2017. He's never played a full 16-game season in the pros, so we'll be shocked if this is his first. Thomas is a TE1 for fantasy owners, but he comes with injury risk.

  Giants | No decision yet on OBJ's fifth-year option    Sat Apr 22, 11:18 AM

The New York Giants remain noncommittal on whether or not they intend on exercising the fifth-year option on WR Odell Beckham Jr. worth around $8 million. The deadline to do so is May 3.

Footballguys view: The Giants should have no problem deciding that Beckham is worth that price tag. Then it would give them more time to work out a long-term deal that likely pays him over $10 million annually as he's one of the best young WRs in the game.

  Bills | BUF holding off on Mike Gillislee decision    Sat Apr 22, 11:04 AM

The Buffalo Bills have until Monday, April 24, to decide whether or not they plan on matching the two-year, $6.4 million offer from the New England Patriots for restricted free-agent RB Mike Gillislee.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are going to force the Bills hand here either way. With Jonathan Williams as a second-year back behind superstar LeSean McCoy, the Bills may decide to let Gillislee walk.

  Patriots | Adoree' Jackson attracting interest    Sat Apr 22, 02:43 AM

Southern California CB Adoree' Jackson has had contact with the New England Patriots, although the team has not had an official visit with him.

Footballguys view: Jackson is one of the most athletic players in this year's draft class. He was a playmaker for the Trojans in college on offense, defense and special teams. Jackson may be too small to play on the outside, but he's got the skill set to be a fine slot corner in the NFL.

  NFL | John Ross off some draft boards?    Fri Apr 21, 10:53 PM

Washington WR John Ross has been pushed down or pushed off some draft boards all together because of injury concerns, according to NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock.

Footballguys view: Off draft boards would be ridiculous....down draft boards makes more sense, but it's also old information. Everyone knew that Ross had knee injuries on both knees in the past, and they obviously could tell that he was going to need shoulder surgery (which he had) after the combine. Ross is a playmaker and reminds scouts of DeSean Jackson, and we feel he should still be a late-first round pick.

  NFL | Reuben Foster's draft stock intact?    Fri Apr 21, 10:21 PM

Alabama LB Reuben Foster's incident that resulted in his dismissal from the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine and his diluted urine sample from the combine are not likely to cause him to slide in the 2017 NFL Draft, according to NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock.

Footballguys view: Foster's medical check is more important that this diluted test. He reportedly may need another shoulder surgery before the start of the season, and that could delay his pro debut. If healthy, Foster is an intimidator and has drawn comparisons to guys like Bobby Wagner or Patrick Willis.

  Buccaneers | Tampa Bay eyeing Samaje Perine?    Fri Apr 21, 09:49 PM

Oklahoma RB Samaje Perine said the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have shown the most interest in him.

Footballguys view: The Bucs are looking at running back with the future of Doug Martin (suspended the first three games of the year) up in the air. Perine is likely to be a second or third round pick in the 2017 NFL draft. He reminds us of Michael Turner (former Falcons starter) because of his power, quickness and ability to grind down defenses or gash them with a big play.

  Redskins | Chris Thompson signs tender    Fri Apr 21, 04:10 PM

Washington Redskins restricted free-agent RB Chris Thompson signed his tender offer Friday, April 21.

Footballguys view: It's a one-year tender worth $2.7 million this year. He will continue to work as Washington's pass-catching back with Rob Kelley working as the banger between the tackles. We expect Washington to look for RB help in the 2017 NFL draft as well.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) is 'on schedule'' to be ready for training camp after having arthroscopic shoulder surgery on March 30, according to general manager Dave Gettleman.

Footballguys view: Newton is going to miss all of the offseason program, but he should be able to ramp things up in training camp. The team will wisely monitor him closely and ease him back into action.

  Raiders | GM optimistic about Derek Carr extension    Fri Apr 21, 03:30 PM

Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie is optimistic about getting an extension for QB Derek Carr done before training camp, according to the San Francisco Chronicle's Vic Tafur.

Footballguys view: We share McKenzie's optimism in this matter. Carr is going to be locked down by the Raiders, and he's certainly proven to be one of the best young quarterbacks in the league. The Raiders are Super Bowl contenders if Carr is healthy come playoff time.

  Raiders | Marshawn Lynch has until draft day to sign    Fri Apr 21, 03:03 PM

Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie hinted he wants a deal done with free-agent RB Marshawn Lynch no later than the start of the 2017 NFL Draft, according to the San Francisco Chronicle's Vic Tafur.

Footballguys view: There is a deadline in this situation, and the Seahawks need to accept. Lynch is still under Seattle's books and needs to be traded away or released to make a move to Oakland. He wants to play for his hometown Raiders and they'd be an even better offense with a guy like Lynch toting the rock. We want to see this happen...not because we're fans of the Raiders, but because we want to see Lynch in the NFL again.

  Chiefs | C.J. Spiller back to old form?    Fri Apr 21, 02:19 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB C.J. Spiller has 'that speed and twitch back', according to general manager John Dorsey.

Footballguys view: With the Jamaal Charles era over in Kansas City, the team is looking for a speedy change-of-pace back. They already have Spencer Ware as the lead back, and Charcandrick West can be a fine part-time player. Spiller is no lock for the 53-man roster, and his fantasy value is limited by the two RBs in front of him on the depth chart.

  Falcons | Atlanta eyeing a move up in the draft    Fri Apr 21, 02:09 PM

Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff believes there will be opportunities to move up from the 31st overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter, Atlanta has heavily scouted pass rushers. Missouri DE Charles Harris or Tennessee DE Derek Barnett are among those pass rushers who could be available in the 20s.

Footballguys view: The Falcons have no issues moving up in the first round as they proved with WR Julio Jones years ago. With the 31st pick, there's a chance Harris would be there but Barnett should be long gone. There will be movement in the 20s, and expect the Falcons to be a player in that mix.

  NFL | Patrick Mahomes a fringe first-rounder?    Fri Apr 21, 01:52 PM

Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes appeared on only one top-32 list from two teams surveyed recently by Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

Footballguys view: Mahomes may be a fringe first rounder in the eyes of some, but he's likely to go in the first round. He's a gunslinger with so much confidence it's falling out of his pockets. With the fifth-year option for first-round picks, we easily see Mahomes getting selected on the first day of the draft.

  NFL | Deshaun Watson not first-round material?    Fri Apr 21, 01:34 PM

Clemson QB Deshaun Watson did not appear on the top-32 list for either one of the two teams surveyed recently by Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

Footballguys view: Watson is falling a bit as the draft draws near. We could see him going in the 20s of the first round as teams like the Chiefs and Texans would be unlikely to pass on Watson.
