Louisiana State WR Odell Beckham, Oregon State WR Brandin Cooks and Michigan State CB Darqueze Dennard will visit the New York Jets next week.

Footballguys view: The Jets left free agency without a second big receiver, a replacement for Antonio Cromartie or an upgrade at safety, so wide receiver and secondary make a ton of sense.

Michigan State CB Darqueze Dennard visited with the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, April 14, and Tuesday, April 15, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Bengals are looking for a young corner to groom as an eventual starter. Dennard can consistently re-route wide receivers when playing press. He's a physical player who will fight for contested passes. Dennard should be a first-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

The Chicago Bears will visit with Alabama S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix this week, according to a source. Clinton-Dix has already met with the Detroit Lions, Carolina Panthers, Tennessee Titans and Atlanta Falcons.

  Broncos | Kayvon Webster moving up depth chart    Mon Apr 14, 11:44 PM

Denver Broncos CB Kayvon Webster is currently slotted as the team's third cornerback, and he could even see a bigger role if CB Chris X. Harris (knee) isn't quite ready.

Footballguys view: Webster is not ready for that larger role. When forced into more playing time last year he struggled late in the season as a rookie. The Broncos top pick in the draft should be a cornerback.

  Broncos | Chris Harris entering contract year    Mon Apr 14, 11:44 PM

With Denver Broncos CB Chris X. Harris (knee) making his way back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in January, and the fact he is eligible for unrestricted free agency after this season, the team is likely to select a cornerback in the first three rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft.

  Bengals | Jason Verrett to visit    Mon Apr 14, 04:16 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals are scheduled to meet with Texas Christian CB Jason Verrett.

Footballguys view: Verrett is a smaller corner, measuring in around 5'10" 185 pounds. He makes up for his lack of size with a feisty attitude and ability to fight for contested passes. Verrett has the speed to fit in the back pocket of receivers as they move downfield. He's an option for the Bengals in the first round. The Bengals need a young corner to develop, and Verrett has starter's upside.

  Jets | Will meet with Calvin Pryor    Mon Apr 14, 02:55 PM

The New York Jets are scheduled to meet with Louisville S Calvin Pryor this week.

Footballguys view: Pryor can roam the field in coverage, but he can also play close to the line of scrimmage and make a big hit. He's a violent hitter who loves to initiate contact. Pryor would give any team an intimidating presence at the free safety position. He's a lock to be a first-round pick. The Jets need all the help in the secondary they can get. Pryor could step in and start from day one.

  Panthers | No decision on Charles Godfrey    Sat Apr 12, 11:29 PM

The Carolina Panthers want to see how FS Charles Godfrey (Achilles') does in his recovery from an Achilles' tendon injury before deciding on his future with the team.

Footballguys view: The Panthers don't even have $500,000 in cap space at this time. They need to clear up some room just to sign the rookies they will draft. Godfrey could remain with the team but likely will not return with his $7.1 million salary cap figure for the 2014 season.

  NFL | Darqueze Dennard will not attend draft    Sat Apr 12, 10:47 PM

Michigan State CB Darqueze Dennard said he has declined an invitation to attend the 2014 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Dennard's draft stock has fallen a bit, but he could still be a late first-round pick. Other cornerbacks like Bradley Roby (Ohio State) are possibly jumping ahead of Dennard in the draft because they are faster. He can effectively re-route receivers at the line of scrimmage, and Dennard is an instinctive player who is always around the ball.

  Lions | Worked out Darqueze Dennard    Sat Apr 12, 10:46 PM

Michigan State CB Darqueze Dennard said he had a private workout with the Detroit Lions last month and that the workout went well. Defensive coordinator Teyrl Austin was part of the workout.

Footballguys view: Dennard's draft stock may be falling just a bit, but the Michigan State prospect could be an option for the Lions in the first round at 10th overall. He's an instinctive player who puts up a fight at the point of the catch. Dennard is not one of the faster corners in this draft, and that may be hurting his draft stock.
