  Buccaneers | Chris Godwin to meet with Bucs    Mon Mar 27, 10:21 AM

Penn State WR Chris Godwin has a visit with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers scheduled in April.

Footballguys view: Godwin was a productive receiver for the Nittany Lions, and he was at his best in their bowl games. Godwin is tough to bring down after the catch, and he can either work the sidelines or the deep middle of the field. With his ability to contribute as a receiver or return man, plus with his nose for the end zone (11 receiving TDs in 2016), Godwin should be a second-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

  Colts | Kamar Aiken a red zone target    Mon Mar 27, 10:12 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR Kamar Aiken has scored five of his six touchdowns in the red zone over the past two seasons.

Footballguys view: Aiken is in line to be the Colts no.3 WR this year. He'll compete with career disappointment Phillip Dorsett for that spot. After a 75-catch, 944-yard season in 2015, Aiken saw his numbers hit the skids as Baltimore essentially phased him out of the offense. We'll see if he can bounce back with the Colts in 2017.

  Seahawks | Thomas Rawls to come off bench    Mon Mar 27, 09:07 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls will be used as a complement to RB Eddie Lacy off the bench.

Footballguys view: That's why they signed Lacy. He's clearly the starter if healthy and in shape, and Rawls is clearly the backup. Rawls will compete with C.J. Prosise for the complementary role behind Lacy in 2017.

  Lions | Detroit checks out Tim White    Sun Mar 26, 10:48 PM

Arizona State WR Tim White worked out for Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell and general manager Bob Quinn over the weekend.

Footballguys view: White is a late-round prospect who should be a decent slot receiver at the pro level. The fact he can contribute as a return man also helps his draft stock.

  Raiders | Oakland brought in Joe Mixon    Sun Mar 26, 10:32 PM

Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon visited the Oakland Raiders Monday, March 20, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Mixon has visited with the Broncos and the Bengals as well. He's got first-round talent, but a domestic violence incident caught on camera in 2014 has some teams downgrading him on their draft boards. Mixon was not allowed at the Scouting Combine earlier this year due to that incident, so teams who are interested will have to get a closer look with a private workout.

  Cardinals | Arizona to work out several QBs    Sun Mar 26, 09:47 PM

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said there are five or six 'really good arms' in the 2017 NFL Draft, and the plan is to hold private workouts with those prospects. 'Whether there are five or six quarterbacks, that's what we have to find out,' Arians said. 'I'm feeling more and more there are a couple of sleepers who, because of their offenses, didn't show as much as they are capable of.'

Footballguys view: The Cardinals need to find the heir apparent to Carson Palmer. That's why we think they go with a QB in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft. Somebody like DeShone Kizer (Notre Dame) or Patrick Mahomes (Texas Tech) would fit the Bruce Arians "air raid" system.

  Titans | O.J. Howard linked to Tennessee    Sun Mar 26, 09:29 PM

Alabama TE O.J. Howard said he has a visit scheduled with the Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: The Titans have Delanie Walker as their primary tight end, but adding a talent like Howard would give them two great options at the position. They have the 5th and 18th selections in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft. Howard is considered the best tight end in this "best ever" draft class at the position. Taking him with a top-5 pick wouldn't be outlandish, but it would obviously be better value to land him with the 18th pick.

  Browns | Cleveland will meet with Bucky Hodges    Sun Mar 26, 09:19 PM

Virginia Tech TE Bucky Hodges will meet with the Cleveland Browns prior to the 2017 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Hodges is a tall, athletic product who basically plays like a super-sized wide receiver. He can pluck the ball from above his head regularly, and making plays above the rim is not a problem. He does need more weight as he can be pushed around close to the line of scrimmage, and Hodges is not going to be a forceful blocker initially at the pro level.

  Eagles | Chris Godwin to visit Philadelphia    Sun Mar 26, 09:17 PM

Penn State WR Chris Godwin has a private workout scheduled with the Philadelphia Eagles, according to his agent.

Footballguys view: The Eagles have been searching for better WRs, and that's why they signed Alson Jeffery and Torrey Smith in free agency. Godwin was a productive receiver for the Nittany Lions, and he was at his best in their bowl games. Godwin is tough to bring down after the catch, and he can either work the sidelines or the deep middle of the field. With his ability to contribute as a receiver or return man, plus with his nose for the end zone (11 receiving TDs in 2016), Godwin should be a second-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

  NFL | Interest building for Adam Shaheen    Sun Mar 26, 09:08 PM

Ashland TE Adam Shaheen has private workouts scheduled with the Cleveland Browns, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Arizona Cardinals, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: There's good reason the Division II prospect is garnering such attention. Shaheen is huge, measuring in at 6'6" 270 pounds and he's got the athleticism to create mismatches on the field. With a background in basketball, Shaheen brings that same sort of athleticism to the football field. He can box out smaller defenders, and he does a good job of reaching for passes like he's grabbing a rebound with his arms naturally extended away from his body. In this amazing TE draft class, Shaheen is likely a second-round pick.

  Browns | John Ross will visit Cleveland    Sun Mar 26, 08:57 PM

Washington WR John Ross said he has a visit scheduled with the Cleveland Browns prior to the 2017 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Ross set the football world on fire with his record-breaking 4.22 second 40-yard dash at the Scouting Combine. The Browns have the 1st and 12th picks in the first round, and they could be consider Ross near the middle of the opening round. Ross can fly, and he can track deep passes with ease. He's a weapon at the pro level.

  Saints | Bucky Hodges to meet with New Orleans    Sun Mar 26, 08:44 PM

Virginia Tech TE Bucky Hodges said he has a meeting scheduled with the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Coby Fleener has been a poor replacement for Jimmy Graham (Seahawks), and the Saints could use more competition at the tight end position. Hodges would give them that as he's basically a super-sized wide receiver. He'll make spectacular plays seem routine, and Hodges is athletic enough to create mismatches. He's not much of a blocker, and Hodges needs to add more muscle to stand up to the NFL beating he'll get as a pro.

  NFL | DeAngelo Yancey making the rounds    Sun Mar 26, 08:25 PM

Purdue WR DeAngelo Yancey has visits scheduled with the Cincinnati Bengals, Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers ahead of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Yancey is a player teams are likely considering as a late-round pick or priority free agent. He's got deep speed, but it takes him some time to hit that top gear. Yancey does not have the quickness or strength desired to beat press coverage at the line of scrimmage. He's also struggled with drops during his college career.

  Titans | DeAngelo Yancey working out for Tennessee    Sun Mar 26, 08:22 PM

Purdue WR DeAngelo Yancey is scheduled to work out for the Tennessee Titans Monday, March 27.

Footballguys view: The Titans are looking for weapons to develop at the wide receiver position. Yancey is a player teams are likely considering as a late-round pick or priority free agent. He's got deep speed, but it takes him some time to hit that top gear. Yancey does not have the quickness or strength desired to beat press coverage at the line of scrimmage. He's also struggled with drops during his college career.

  49ers | Jacquies Smith not offered deal from SF    Sun Mar 26, 06:41 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers restricted free-agent DE Jacquies Smith (knee) recently met with the San Francisco 49ers, but the 49ers have not made him a contract offer at this time, according to general manager John Lynch. Lynch said the team wanted to see how Smith was recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

  Steelers | PIT planning for Ben Roethlisberger return    Sun Mar 26, 06:26 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said the Steelers are proceeding as if QB Ben Roethlisberger will play in 2017.

Footballguys view: The retirement talk was always a little overblown with Roethlisberger. He's going to play this year, but the Steelers do need to start planning a future that doesn't include their future Hall of Fame QB. Landry Jones is not a franchise QB, so the Steelers should be looking to find one through the draft.

  NFL | Josh Jones receiving interest    Sun Mar 26, 05:47 PM

North Carolina State SS Josh Jones has worked out for the Jacksonville Jaguars and is scheduled to work out for the Arizona Cardinals before the 2017 NFL draft. Jones is also scheduled to meet with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, Miami Dolphins and New York Jets.

Footballguys view: Jones loves to hit....we mean he LOVES to hit. He's the ultimate intimidator at the safety position, and Jones is like a heat-seeking missile against the run. His aggressive nature can be used against him in coverage on play fakes or double moves. Jones is a height-weight-speed prospect and should be a second-round pick.

  Cowboys | Dallas to work out Tarell Basham    Sun Mar 26, 05:46 PM

Ohio DE Tarell Basham is scheduled to work out for the Dallas Cowboys before the 2017 NFL draft.

Footballguys view: Basham has the makings of an impact pro. With long arms and strong hands, Basham finds his way to the ball quickly and can be quite disruptive when he gets there. Basham is scheme versatile and can play in a 4-3 or a 3-4 lineup. He's likely to be a second-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

  NFL | Forrest Lamp works out for teams    Sun Mar 26, 05:39 PM

Western Kentucky OG Forrest Lamp has worked out for the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers and Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: Lamp is a riser in the 2017 NFL draft. He's the best guard in this draft class, mainly because of his footwork, football intelligence and natural strength. Lamp is likely to be a first-round pick.

  Jets | NYJ interested in Kevin King    Sun Mar 26, 05:38 PM

Washington CB Kevin King is scheduled to work out for the New York Jets and is also scheduled to have an official visit with the Jets.

Footballguys view: King is one of the fastest risers on draft boards right now. An impressive performance at the Scouting Combine isn't the only reason, King showed on film the ability to be a big press corner. He's unusually tall for the position, measuring in at 6'3" 200 pounds. Not known as a physical tackler, King could also contribute at free safety.

  NFL | Davis Webb meets with multiple teams    Sun Mar 26, 05:34 PM

California QB Davis Webb recently met with the New York Jets, Arizona Cardinals, Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate that Webb has been told he's got "first-round talent" by double-digit teams. That doesn't mean he'll go in the first, but some may see something in Webb that we don't. On his best day, Webb is a poor version of Nick Foles. He's robotic in his decision making and will tend to lock onto initial targets. Webb transferred from Texas Tech to Cal because he couldn't beat out Patrick Mahomes. We're likely to see Mahomes in the first round, but Webb may not hear his name called until the second round or later.

  Steelers | No timetable for Le'Veon Bell    Sun Mar 26, 04:08 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said there is no timetable for RB Le'Veon Bell (groin) but the team wants him to be 100 percent for the start of the 2017 season.

Footballguys view: The Steelers will wisely take it easy on Bell as he recovers from his groin injury. Don't be surprised if he doesn't do much in OTAs or minicamp. We'll have a better feel for his status when training camp begins.

  Lions | Theo Riddick had double wrist surgery    Sun Mar 26, 03:03 PM

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick (wrist) underwent surgery on both of his wrists after the season, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Riddick is expected to be a full participant in organized team activities later this spring. The Lions should select a RB at some point in the 2017 NFL draft, and that player should be more of a full-time player. Riddick should continue as a fine receiving threat and change-of-pace back for the Lions.

  Panthers | 'No concern' Cam Newton ready for opener    Sun Mar 26, 01:39 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (shoulder) will be ready for the season opener 'without a doubt', according to head coach Ron Rivera.

  Browns | Brock Osweiler sticking on roster for now    Sun Mar 26, 01:20 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler will remain a Brown 'until he's not', according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Footballguys view: The Browns may want to deal Osweiler away after just trading for him. No teams have taken them up yet, but that could change as we get closer to the draft. We'd be surprised if Osweiler takes a snap for the Browns.

  Jaguars | Blake Bortles' option won't be exercised?    Sun Mar 26, 01:05 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles is unlikely to see his fifth-year option for 2018 picked up by May 2 - the deadline to do so - according to the Florida Times Union's Ryan O'Halloran.

Footballguys view: That would be a bold move for the Jaguars as they don't really have an option for the future. Bortles saw his game fall off in 2016 after a 35-touchdown performance in 2015. If he shows greater dedication to the game, the Jaguars should see a bounce-back season from him this year.

Lamar RB Kade Harrington will attend the Houston Texans' local prospect workout in April, according to a source not authorized to speak publicly.

  NFL | Curtis Samuel's versatility valued    Sun Mar 26, 12:13 AM

Ohio State RB/WR Curtis Samuel is best suited to play wide receiver in the NFL, according to a college scouting director, but he could also be used on jet sweeps and other plays off motion.

Footballguys view: Samuel is listed as a RB by some sites, but he's really a WR at the NFL level. He's got deep speed and can get by defenders in a hurry. Samuel does need to catch with his hands more often and not his body, plus he needs to learn how to track deep passes better.

  NFL | Marlon Humphrey's toughness praised     Sat Mar 25, 11:57 PM

Alabama CB Marlon Humphrey is a 'big, tough kid who plays with that chip,' according to an NFC secondary coach.

Footballguys view: Humphrey may be the most competitive corner in this draft. He's tough, physical and won't back down from a challenge. Humphrey does have trouble covering deep passes as he'll bite on play fakes and pump fakes that get WRs open deep.

  NFL | Chris Wormley turns in good workout     Sat Mar 25, 11:43 PM

Michigan DT Chris Wormley participated in his pro day Friday, March 24, and general managers in attendance view him as a second-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Wormley is well disciplined as a player on the edge. He'll keep containment as a run defender, but Wormley can also get some pressure from the outside. Scouts compare his skill set to that of Jared Crick (Broncos).

Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart said he believes it would be a good thing if the Panthers selected a running back in the 2017 NFL draft because it would keep him fresher late in games.

Footballguys view: Stewart doesn't really have a say in the matter. He got a contract extension to stay with the Panthers, and he has to expect a RB to be added in the draft. The Panthers have the 8th-overall pick, and someone like Leonard Fournette (LSU) could be their selection.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh to work out Nate Peterman    Sat Mar 25, 02:35 PM

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh QB Nate Peterman said he is scheduled to have a private workout with the Pittsburgh Steelers in April.

Footballguys view: Peterman is our favorite mid-round QB prospect in the 2017 NFL draft. He's smart, has the instincts to make every throw in the pros, and Peterman isn't afraid to challenge a defense vertically. He was the most impressive QB at the Senior Bowl earlier this year and is an intriguing developmental player. The Steelers need to think about their future after Ben Roethlisberger. He was talking retirement, but Roethlisberger is returning to play in 2017.
