Footballguys view: Hurst may not be considered the best TE in this draft class, but the former baseball pitcher (he spent years in the Pirates organization) may have the best upside.

  NFL | Tremaine Edmunds' stock soaring    Sat Apr 21, 09:49 PM

Virginia Tech LB Tremaine Edmunds 'is a lock to go in the top 10' of the 2018 NFL Draft, according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, and La Canfora believes Edmunds could be selected as high as sixth overall.

Footballguys view: Edmunds is a physical freak who can fly all over the field and make plays. He can tackle, he can intimidate when rushing the passer and he can cover. Edmunds should be a top-10 pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

  Broncos | Denver eyeing Leighton Vander Esch?    Sat Apr 21, 09:20 PM

Boise State LB Leighton Vander Esch is 'very much' on the radar of the Denver Broncos heading into the 2018 NFL Draft, according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com.

Footballguys view: Vander Esch should be on their radar, but probably not at no.5 overall. If the Broncos move back with the Bills (no.12 and no.22 overall) then that's more in line where Vander Esch should be selected. The Boise State product has a bit of Brian Urlacher to his game.

  Broncos | Shane Ray expects option to be picked up    Sat Apr 21, 04:37 PM

Denver Broncos LB Shane Ray said he expects the team to exercise his fifth-year option this offseason.

Footballguys view: The Broncos have to decide whether or not they want Ray for the fifth season. He was injured most of last year and turned in a disappointing 1.0 sack performance for the entire season. Healthy now, Ray could push for 7-8 sacks in 2018.

Denver Broncos LB Shane Ray (wrist) said he currently weighs 240 pounds and plans to play the 2018 season at 240 or 245 pounds. He was down to 223 pounds at the end of the 2017 season because his wrist injury would not let him work out fully.

  Seahawks | No decision on Malik McDowell    Sat Apr 21, 03:41 PM

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider said the team has not made a decision on DT Malik McDowell (head) at this point and are still waiting for guidance on his situation.

Footballguys view: First-round talent that slipped to the second round last year, McDowell didn't get on the field at all as a rookie after suffering massive injuries in an offseason ATV accident. The Seahawks are expected to release him soon as they continue to revamp their roster.

  Saints | NO unlikely to match Willie Snead offer    Sat Apr 21, 02:55 PM

The New Orleans Saints do not plan on matching the offer restricted free-agent WR Willie Snead signed with the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: This was expected once the Saints were able to sign Bears RFA wide receiver Cameron Meredith earlier this month. Snead will go to the Ravens where they've got a new-look WR corps. He should compete for snaps/targets in a trio of receivers that include Michael Crabtree and John Brown.

  Lions | Detroit unlikely to pursue Dez Bryant    Sat Apr 21, 01:50 PM

Free-agent WR Dez Bryant (Cowboys) likely will not receive interest from the Detroit Lions, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Michael Rothstein.

Footballguys view: Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay make a pretty good trio for the Lions. They've got good chemistry in the passing game and don't need someone like Bryant messing that up.

  Jets | Leonard Williams' option officially exercised    Sat Apr 21, 12:40 PM

Updating a previous report, the New York Jets officially exercised DE Leonard Williams' fifth-year option Saturday, April 21.

Footballguys view: A first-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft, Williams has been a great player for the Jets up front. He's strong against the run and can create pressure as a defensive end. Williams should get an extension from the Jets before he hits the open market.

  NFL | Ronald Jones met with several teams    Sat Apr 21, 12:24 PM

Southern California RB Ronald Jones said he had pre-draft visits with the New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles, Indianapolis Colts, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Washington Redskins, Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: Jones plays like a younger version of Jamaal Charles. He wore the same number as Charles in college and patterned his game after Charles during his time at USC. Jones can score anytime he touches the ball. He's set to be a late first- or early second-round pick.

  NFL | Question marks for Derrius Guice    Fri Apr 20, 10:27 PM

Louisiana State RB Derrius Guice is a 'high-maintenance kid' and will need structure to succeed in the NFL, according to an NFC executive.

Footballguys view: Ah yes, the anonymous scout strikes again. Guice had a rough upbringing in Baton Rouge, losing his father to murder at 7-years old. His brother has been arrested multiple times, so teams are certainly doing their homework on Guice's background. He patterns his game after Marshawn Lynch and is one of the best backs in this draft class. Many think he's a better receiver than his 31 career receptions over three years indicate. Guice should be a late first- or early second-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

  Colts | Jabaal Sheard set to shine?    Fri Apr 20, 10:06 PM

  49ers | San Francisco a fit for Tremaine Edmunds    Fri Apr 20, 09:46 PM

Virginia Tech LB Tremaine Edmunds' athleticism and personality make him a great fit for the San Francisco 49ers, according to an NFL personnel executive. 'They need to go safe,' said the executive. 'And this kid is buttoned up, a great kid who'd be a very good pick for them.'

Footballguys view: The 49ers need linebacker help with Reuben Foster in trouble with the law. Edmunds is different from Foster, but he's a special talent in his own way. He's incredibly athletic and can play sideline-to-sideline in the NFL.

  NFL | Marcus Davenport could be a star    Fri Apr 20, 09:42 PM

Texas-San Antonio DE Marcus Davenport is still filling out his frame and could have a higher ceiling than North Carolina State DE Bradley Chubb, according to a college scouting director.

Footballguys view: Davenport has the length and burst to be special from the edge. That's different from the power game that Chubb brings to the table. Both should be top-10 picks in the 2018 NFL draft.

  NFL | D.J. Moore the top receiver?    Fri Apr 20, 09:36 PM

Maryland WR D.J. Moore is preferred by 'more than one team' over Alabama WR Calvin Ridley, according to Albert Breer of MMQB.

Footballguys view: We can see why that would be the case. Moore has great concentration, body control and hand/eye coordination. His acrobatic catches make the highlight reel, but he does little things well too. Ridley is a talent in his own right, and a better route-runner, but drops are a problem with the Alabama prospect.

  Browns | Cleveland not targeting Sam Darnold?    Fri Apr 20, 09:29 PM

Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey said 'hand size is important' when discussing quarterbacks in the 2018 NFL Draft, and he referenced Southern California QB Sam Darnold's hand size and issues with fumbling in college. 'With that being said, hand size in November and December, when it's snowing, raining, it's getting muddy.'

Footballguys view: Darnold is set to be a top-5 pick in the 2018 NFL draft, but he's not ready to start right away. He was a turnover machine at USC and he needs to prove that he can play with better ball security as a pro. If the Browns don't take him at no.1 overall, then Darnold could go no.2 to the Giants or no.5 to the Broncos.
