  NFL | Ray Rice's record cleared    Thu May 21, 10:55 AM

Free-agent RB Ray Rice (Ravens) had his legal record cleared of the domestic violence charge after finishing a pretrial diversion program as part of the conditions of his sentencing for the 2014 legal matter.

Footballguys view: This might clear his legal record, but his public reputation remains heavily tarnished. Will teams add Rice and take the public relations hit? Rice was struggling a bit before all this happened, how much does he have left in the tank? At this time, Rice has an ADP of RB65 (13.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  NFL | Potental 2016 free-agent WR class stout    Wed May 20, 12:28 PM

The upcoming group of potential free-agent wide receivers includes four of the positions most dominant players, including Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant, Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas, Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green and Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones, according to Spotrac.com. All four players are engaging in contract discussions on some level with their current teams.

Footballguys view: This is making the assumption that Bryant and Thomas don't sign new long-term contract before the July 15th deadline for franchise-tagged players. We think both Green and Jones could get franchise tagged next offseason if they don't get extended some time before then.

  NFL | Santana Moss not ready to retire    Fri May 15, 07:07 PM

Free-agent WR Santana Moss (Redskins) is not ready to hang up his cleats and retire this offseason. 'I'm a free agent right now, you know how they do us old guys,' Moss said. 'I'm going on my 15th year. Right now my agent is talking with some teams to see what's going to be my best scenario. Right now I'm just chilling, just enjoying life, and enjoying this off time.' The Washington Redskins are unlikely to re-sign him, though, after drafting two wide receivers late in this year's draft.

  NFL | Steven Jackson wants to play for winner    Thu May 14, 10:51 PM

Free-agent RB Steven Jackson (Falcons) said he would like to keep playing but will only do so for a contender. 'I want to be part of a winning team because when I do hang up my cleats, I can see a lot of people holding that over my head when a lot of it was out of my control,' Jackson said.

Footballguys view: Jackson's fantasy value dwindled last year, but if a high-powered offense like New England or high-powered running game like Dallas brings him in, he could have fantasy relevance for one more year.

  NFL | Michael Vick hopes to sign with a team    Thu May 14, 01:43 PM

Free-agent QB Michael Vick (Jets) has been working out in Florida over the past few weeks and hopes to sign with a team at some point this offseason.

Footballguys view: It's unlikely anyone really takes a shot with Vick, and at best he'll end up a backup. Given that he could barely scare up the effort to prep for a game here or there with the New York Jets.

  NFL | Ahmad Bradshaw pleads no contest    Mon May 11, 12:50 PM

Free-agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw (Colts) pleaded no contest and paid a fine to settle a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession in Ohio. He paid $351 in fines under the plea agreement, and his Ohio driving privileges were suspended for six months. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league will review Bradshaw's case 'under our policies.'

Footballguys view: This isn't going to help Bradshaw latch on with a team. It's a young man's game, and teams found plenty of talented running backs in the draft. Bradshaw's season was cut short last year in Week 11 with a broken leg. On the open market, Bradshaw has drawn zero interest.

  NFL | Fred Davis reinstated    Thu May 7, 12:18 PM

Free-agent TE Fred Davis (Redskins) was reinstated by the NFL Thursday, May 7, and is allowed to sign with any team.

Footballguys view: Davis was initially suspended indefinitely in early 2014 for repeated violations of the league's substance abuse policy. We'd be shocked to see multiple teams lined up to sign him on the open market. Davis is now 29 years old, and it's been a few years since he was actually productive in the NFL.

  NFL | La'el Collins can't re-enter draft    Sat May 2, 11:44 PM

Louisiana State OT La'el Collins was not drafted in the 2015 NFL Draft, and according to NFL rules, he cannot re-enter the 2016 NFL Draft. He could still sign with a team as an undrafted free agent.

Footballguys view: Collins can sign as a free agent, but that limits the amount of money he could get in his first contract. He was considered a lock to be a first-round pick, and it wouldn't have been a shock to see him selected in the top 10. Collins now has to prove his innocence before working his way back to the football field.

  NFL | La'el Collins goes undrafted    Sat May 2, 06:38 PM

LSU OT La'el Collins was not selected Saturday, May 2, as the 2015 NFL Draft came to a close. Collins had said he would not sign with a team if selected after Friday, May 1.

Footballguys view: As expected, given the issues around him and his demands. However he cannot enter the NFL Draft in 2016 unless the NFL and NFLPA make some sort of special exception. Had he been drafted and then declined to sign (like Bo Jackson in 1986) he could have re-entered the draft next season. Now he has to sign with a team and hope he can make up his money with a second contract.

  NFL | La'el Collins wants to be drafted Friday    Fri May 1, 05:43 PM

Louisiana State OT La'el Collins will not sign a contract with a team if he is not selected in the second or third round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Collins would re-enter the draft next year if he does not sign a contract.

Footballguys view: While his situation sucks if he was not involved in the murder of his ex-girlfriend, he's really in no position to make demands. If he pulls this stunt, it will hurt his stock next year as well, book it.

  NFL | Some teams worried about Leonard Williams    Thu Apr 30, 08:33 PM

Southern California DE Leonard Williams (shoulder) was red flagged by some teams leading up to the draft because of a labrum issue in his shoulder.

Footballguys view: He dropped but ended up with the Jets in one of the fiercest defensive lines in the NFL. Clearly they aren't worried about his shoulders and with all the talent they have they are protected if he gets hurt.

  NFL | La'el Collins has request denied    Thu Apr 30, 05:05 PM

Louisiana State OT La'el Collins' request to pull out of the 2015 NFL Draft has been denied. Collins is currently being questioned regarding the death of a pregnant woman. He had hoped to pull from the draft in order to clear his name and then enter the supplemental draft.

Footballguys view: Collins will be available for the draft but he has been removed from many boards. While he is cooperating with police, no team will be able to get a clear idea of what is going on and we could see him go undrafted.

  NFL | La'el Collins looking to be removed from draft    Thu Apr 30, 02:30 PM

Louisiana State OT La'el Collins' agent is looking to pull Collins out of the 2015 NFL Draft in order to give him time to clear his name, according to sources. Collins would try to enter the supplemental draft if he is cleared. Most teams are looking for a police report that completely clears him from any wrongdoing before considering taking him in the draft.

Footballguys view: Collins is dealing with an investigation into the death of a former girlfriend and while he isn't a suspect, teams are worried and some have removed him from their boards. He is hoping he can get added to the supplemental draft, which might give him enough to time allay team's fears. Sadly this would cause a lot of issues for the NFL and it isn't likely to happen.

  NFL | Wes Welker cleared to play    Thu Apr 30, 01:33 PM

Free-agent WR Wes Welker (Broncos) has been cleared to continue his playing career by one of the top concussion doctors. Welker said he did well in all of the tests during his visit with the doctor. Welker is working out in Florida and waiting to sign with a team.

Footballguys view: He might be cleared to play but everyone will be a bit wary of his concussion history. Fantasy owners should be as well and steer clear if he does play somewhere.

  NFL | Tom Crabtree retires    Thu Apr 30, 12:42 PM

Free-agent TE Tom Crabtree (Saints) has announced his retirement from professional football.

Footballguys view: Crabtree had a lot of potential but never fully fulfilled it. Hopefully he doesn't retire from Twitter, where he has provided some interesting insight when he hasn't been on the field.

  NFL | Shane Ray still receiving first-round interest    Thu Apr 30, 12:18 PM

Missouri DE/LB Shane Ray is still receiving interest from teams with a first-round draft choice despite his off-field issues.

Footballguys view: Ray wasn't impaired and was cooperative with the police. He also came out quickly and admitted his mistake and talked about improving his decisions. That probably went a long way towards smoothing things over with teams. His foot is a concern, but otherwise he is too talented to drop far.

  NFL | Bryce Petty expected in Round 2    Wed Apr 29, 11:31 PM

Baylor QB Bryce Petty appears to be firmly entrenched as a pick in the early second-round mix, although it would not be surprising to see him go in the late first round, as teams would get a fifth-year option.

Footballguys view: Petty might be the third-highest rated quarterback on draft boards. He's got arm talent, but taking snaps, reading defenses and making stick throws are things he'll have to work on as a pro. He's a project at quarterback, but with a fifth-year option teams would be more willing to take a chance on him in the late first.

  NFL | Differing opinions on Nelson Agholor    Wed Apr 29, 11:25 PM

There are differing opinions on Southern California WR Nelson Agholor. One person who has spoken to several league executives said draftniks seem more enamored with Agholor than some teams do.

Footballguys view: Agholor's production as a pro (especially early) will come down to how a team uses him. We think his best fit is as a slot receiver where he can get a clean release off the line and get open underneath.

  NFL | Hau'oli Kikaha's knee is a concern    Wed Apr 29, 11:24 PM

University of Washington LB Hau'oli Kikaha (knee) is not on the draft board for several teams due to concerns about his knee. He has torn his anterior cruciate ligament twice.

Footballguys view: The opinions on Kikaha are all over the place. He's a productive player who racked up nearly 30 sacks over the last two years. The injuries are a concern, and there are teams who will take him completely off their boards.

  NFL | Devin Smith comparable to DeSean Jackson?    Wed Apr 29, 08:17 PM

Former Ohio State WR Devin Smith has drawn some comparisons to Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson ahead of the 2015 NFL Draft Thursday, April 30. "Smith might not be quite as fast as [DeSean] Jackson, but he's very fast," says Lance Zierlein of NFL.com. 'He has the ability to track the ball deep and consistently take the top off a defense is very reminiscent of Jackson."

  NFL | La'el Collins not attending draft    Wed Apr 29, 04:16 PM

Louisiana State OT La'el Collins will not be present for the NFL Draft as he is meeting with police in Louisiana in attempt to clear his name regarding the death of a pregnant woman. Collins is not believed to be a subject; he is simply wanted for questioning.

Footballguys view: Collins is either going to clear his name and keep his draft stock intact, or plummet when questions can not be answered definitely. We're guessing he'll still go in the first round, but awaiting some word on what results from the investigation.

  NFL | Shane Ray likely to fall in draft    Tue Apr 28, 10:08 AM

Missouri DE Shane Ray is projected to fall from a mid-first-round pick into the latter portions of the first round after he was arrested for marijuana possession. ESPN financial expert Darren Rovell said it could cost Ray as much as $2 million guaranteed.

Footballguys view: Some team near the end of the first round is going to get a helluva pass-rusher. Ray was arrested for possession, but make sure to note that's all it was for. This is not a hot drug test similar to what Randy Gregory (Nebraska) got popped for at the scouting combine. Gregory could still be a top-10 pick, and Ray could still go in the first round as well.

  NFL | P.J. Williams' DUI case dismissed    Mon Apr 27, 01:27 PM

Florida State CB P.J. Williams' driving under the influence case has been dismissed, according to his lawyer.

Footballguys view: This dismissed DUI didn't hurt his draft stock as much as his poor 40-yard dash (4.57) at the scouting combine. Williams can play press-man or press-bail coverage, and he's a physical corner who does not back down from a challenge. He's likely to be an early to mid second-round pick.

  NFL | Jalen Collins had surgery    Mon Apr 27, 12:45 PM

Louisiana State CB Jalen Collins (foot) recently had surgery to fix an incomplete Jones fracture in his foot, which kept him from taking part in his school's pro day in March.

Footballguys view: In recent weeks, we've seen Collins' draft stock take a tumble..and this injury is a big reason why. His surgery was expected to keep him out only for roughly three weeks. Collins might be a second-round pick, but some team could take him higher based on his potential.

  NFL | Torrian Wilson works out for two teams    Mon Apr 27, 02:33 AM

Central Florida OT Torrian Wilson had a private workout with the New England Patriots and took part in the local prospect day for the Miami Dolphins.

Footballguys view: Wilson may be listed as a tackle, but he's likely to move inside to guard at the pro level. UCF moved him to guard for the 2014 season, and scouts believe that's his best fit. He should be a late-round or undrafted selection.

  NFL | Arik Armstead an underachiever?    Sun Apr 26, 10:14 PM

Oregon DE Arik Armstead was called a first-round talent that plays like a fourth-round by an NFL scout, and the same scout doesn't expect Armstead to have big sack numbers in the NFL.

Footballguys view: This should come as no surprise to anyone who watched Armstead in college where he had only four sacks in three years. His draft stock is largely based on projection. At 6'7" 290 pounds, Armstead has the length to get after the quarterback and the power to create pressure. If coached up better, Armstead could thrive as a rotational player.

  NFL | Jay Ajayi taken off some boards    Sun Apr 26, 09:51 AM

Boise State RB Jay Ajayi (knee) has been taken off the draft board by some teams because of how their medical staff evaluated him, according to several executives. One scout said he is not sure if Ajayi will be able to hold up after receiving a lot of work in college.

Footballguys view: Bad news for one of our favorite backs here. Ajayi an do it all. We like his ability to run between the tackles, but he also has the burst to create big plays on the outside. Ajayi is also a fine receiver out of the backfield. He's a full-time back for the NFL, and he could be a featured back who doesn't come off the field because of his three-down ability. We'll see if he goes off the board in the second round (where we have him graded), or if he falls further.

  NFL | Garrett Grayson climbing boards    Sun Apr 26, 08:55 AM

Former Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson has been climbing draft boards and could be selected in the first or second round. Grayson has drawn some comparisons to Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr.

Footballguys view: Grayson is our third favorite quarterback in this draft class. He uses his eyes regularly to manipulate the defense, and he goes through his progressions quickly. Grayson can make accurate throws on the move or under pressure. At Colorado State, Grayson ran a pro-style system and was allowed to change plays at the line of scrimmage. Unlike other college quarterbacks who come out of spread systems, Grayson is used to huddling, used to working from under center and has plenty of experience deciphering defenses instead of just throwing to spots. He should be a late second- or early third-round pick.

  NFL | Five teams looking at Chris Polk    Sun Apr 26, 02:54 AM

Free-agent RB Chris Polk (Eagles) is drawing interest from five NFL teams, according to sources. The teams were not disclosed, except to say one of the teams is from the NFC East.

Footballguys view: As long as he's healthy, Polk should be attracting plenty of interest. He's a tough runner inside, but he's a fantastic receiver out of the backfield too. It wouldn't be a shock to see Polk become an effective starter. He'll likely have to work his way up the depth chart no matter where he ends up.

  NFL | Amari Cooper makes more visits    Sat Apr 25, 03:14 PM

Alabama WR Amari Cooper has visited the Chicago Bears, Washington Redskins, New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in addition to his other pre-draft visits. Cooper has visited every team drafting in the top 10 except for the Oakland Raiders.

Footballguys view: Any one of these teams would be thrilled to have Cooper on the team. Cooper is our favorite receiver in this draft class because of his insane route-running ability. He plays with the savvy of a 10-year veteran, plus he has the size and quickness to get open against any coverage.

  NFL | Jalen Collins failed drug tests in college    Sat Apr 25, 09:24 AM

Louisiana State CB Jalen Collins failed multiple drug tests while in college, according to sources from four different NFL teams.

Footballguys view: Collins already had questions about his draft stock after he had surgery last month to repair an incomplete Jones fracture in his right foot. He's one of the best cornerbacks in this draft, but these questions around his game could force him to be a late first-round pick.

  NFL | Vic Beasley can help any defense    Fri Apr 24, 09:50 PM

Clemson LB Vic Beasley is the most explosive pass rusher in some time, according to a NFC executive, and believes he could excel in a 4-3 defense or a 3-4 base.

Footballguys view: In other news, water is wet. It doesn't take an NFL executive to see what Beasley can do. He has good closing burst to get the quarterback, and Beasley does a great job of getting off the line of scrimmage cleanly and quickly. Beasley is going to rush the passer in the pros...and many teams would be thrilled to add him in the draft.

  NFL | Leonard Williams the next Reggie White?    Fri Apr 24, 09:15 PM

Southern California DE Leonard Williams' versatility has caused one NFC scout to compare him to Reggie White. 'You can put him inside, outside, wherever you want to place him,' the scout said. 'You could create mismatches with him, isn't that what they used to do with Reggie?'

Footballguys view: Let's not go overboard here. We really like Williams, so much that we think he's the best player in this draft class regardless of position. Williams is smart, powerful, quick and disruptive as a defensive tackle. The upside is there for him to be one of the best in the league for a long time....we're just not going to mention him in the same sentence as the legendary Reggie White.

  NFL | Amari Cooper the top WR prospect    Fri Apr 24, 06:22 PM

Alabama WR Amari Cooper is believed to be the top wide receiver prospect available in the 2015 NFL Draft, according to general managers and scouts. West Virginia WR Kevin White is believed to be a close second.

Footballguys view: We like Cooper better than White too. The reason? Cooper is a Marvin Harrison-like route-runner. He counts steps, doesn't tip off his break and bursts quickly out of his route. Cooper should be a top-5 pick.

  NFL | Jameis Winston compared to QB bust     Fri Apr 24, 05:57 PM

Florida State QB Jameis Winston has been compared to former NFL QB JaMarcus Russell by one longtime NFL executive. 'Lack of focus by JaMarcus is what I see in Winston,' the personnel man said. 'They're physically talented, but during the course of a game they kind of lose their focus and just put the ball up for grabs. I see the body. I see the lack of focus. I see the same coach and system. Only Winston's not as good an athlete and his arm isn't as strong as JaMarcus'.'

Footballguys view: The comparisons to Russell just aren't accurate. Russell had a huge arm, but he couldn't throw with touch the way Winston does. We think Winston plays a lot like Ben Roethlisberger.

  NFL | T.J. Clemmings has stress fracture    Fri Apr 24, 01:53 PM

Clemson OT T.J. Clemmings (foot) is dealing with a stress fracture in his foot that was discovered while on a team visit, according to sources.

Footballguys view: This shouldn't hurt his draft stock too much, though it could hamper his ability to get into OTAs and might slow his progress in fitting into a new offense.

Link to story


  NFL | T.J. Clemmings wraps up visits    Fri Apr 24, 03:21 AM

Pittsburgh OT T.J. Clemmings visited the Chicago Bears, had a private workout with the Carolina Panthers and will work out for the Miami Dolphins.

Footballguys view: Both the Panthers and the Dolphins need help along the offensive line. Clemmings is a very athletic lineman but also raw, having played his first three seasons at defensive end for Pitt. The sky appears to be the limit for him though, and he will see lots on interest in the late first round.

  NFL | Three teams interested in Vince Kowalski    Fri Apr 24, 02:48 AM

Villanova OL Vince Kowalski has interest from the Oakland Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots.

Footballguys view: Kowalski will likely move inside to guard at the NFL level. He's got a ton of starting experience, and Kowalski is athletic enough to be a "sticky blocker" at the second level.

  NFL | Shane Ray meets with specialist    Thu Apr 23, 02:32 PM

Missouri DE Shane Ray (foot) met with a specialist Thursday, April 23, and was told he does not need surgery on his foot, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Good news for Ray here, and this could lock him in as a top-10 pick. He is relentless when pursuing the quarterback. Ray has a non-stop motor and good bend and burst around the edge as a pass-rusher. He can also use a secondary (inside) move to slice his way to the passer. Ray can also work in a 3-4 or 4-3 defense.

  NFL | Todd Gurley could play Week 1    Wed Apr 22, 03:24 PM

Georgia RB Todd Gurley (knee) has a good chance to be ready for Week 1, according to sources. Gurley recently underwent tests on his surgically repaired knee and checked out fine.

Footballguys view: This would greatly help his stock, although it doesn't necessarily mean he will. There's no incentive for a team that will have four years under contract invested in Gurley to rush him. His dynasty stock should sit atop rookie drafts, but Gurley could still not be the first RB drafted in redraft leagues or hottest rookie option for Week 1 in DFS.

  NFL | Jameis Winston talks crab-legs incident    Wed Apr 22, 12:31 PM

Florida State QB Jameis Winston said he was given the crab legs by a supermarket employee in Florida last year and did not steal the items. Winston said he had received other free things from the store during that time.

Footballguys view: This is actually low on the list of off-field incidents, which include an allegation of rape, for Winston, but obviously part of a larger pattern. The Bucs and any other team seriously considering Winston will have to weigh this risk factor against his clear ability to translate to the NFL as a pocket passer.

  NFL | Duke Johnson could be value pick    Wed Apr 22, 11:38 AM

Miami (Fla.) RB Duke Johnson could be a second-round pick if he didn't have durability concerns, according to ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. He could slide to the third or fourth round.

Footballguys view: Johnson is an excellent receiver out of the backfield and his hard-nosed approach to running the ball belies his undersized (for an NFL feature back) frame. He would be an excellent fit in a one-cut zone scheme like the one Kyle Shanahan is likely to install in Atlanta.

  NFL | Jay Ajayi wasn't asked for re-check    Mon Apr 20, 06:13 PM

Former Boise State RB Jay Ajayi (knee) did not attend and wasn't asked to attend the NFL Combine medical re-check.

Footballguys view: Some teams may be concerned about Ajayi's knee, but the fact he wasn't asked for a re-check means many other teams may not share that concern. We like Ajayi's all-purpose ability as a runner and receiver out of the backfield. Expect him to go off the board in the second round of the draft.

  NFL | Adrian Wilson retires    Mon Apr 20, 04:58 PM

  NFL | Jay Ajayi's knee a concern    Mon Apr 20, 02:29 PM

Boise State RB Jay Ajayi's (knee) knee injury is reportedly a big concern among interested teams.

Footballguys view: Ajayi injured his right knee in October 2011 and has dealt with cartilage issues in that knee over his career. He's one of our favorite running backs in this class. When healthy, Ajayi can be a dominant runner and receiver out of the backfield. He was second in rushing touchdowns last year (28) in the NCAA, and his 168.4 yards from scrimmage per game ranked fourth.

Maryland DT Darius Kilgo met with the Washington Redskins and Buffalo Bills in recent days, according to sources. Earlier in the visitation perios Kilgo also met with the Green Bay Packers, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots.

Footballguys view: Kilgo is an absolute beast in the middle of the defensive line with two years experience playing nose tackle for the Terrapins. He's got outstanding strength, and this helps him get interior push as a pass-rusher from time to time. Kilgo should be a priority free agent picked up after the draft.

West Georgia QB Austin Trainor had Pro Days with three teams, including the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: Trainor went undrafted last year out of West Georgia. He originally began his college career at Florida A&M where he was a starting quarterback. Trainor attracted the attention of NFL teams this year when he was hefting deep passes to UCF's Breshad Perriman at his pro day. In fact, Trainor was so impressive the Raiders have invited him to their rookie minicamp which starts at the beginning of next month.

Georgia RB Todd Gurley (knee) has been undergoing tests in Indianapolis Friday, April 17, and Saturday, April 18, on his surgically repaired knee and everything checked out fine, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Great news for Gurley and his draft stock here. Even with this knee injury, Gurley was going to be a first-round pick. Now, he could be picked earlier than some had though. He's a top-10 talent in this draft, and Gurley may come off the board somewhere around the Texans pick in the middle of the first round.

  NFL | Jaelen Strong medically cleared    Sat Apr 18, 10:26 AM

Arizona State WR Jaelen Strong (wrist) underwent several medical tests during his visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers and has cleared by their doctors. The Steelers will send the results of his tests to other teams so he does not have to be re-checked in Indianapolis.

Footballguys view: Good news for Strong here. He's one of our favorite receivers in this draft class, and Strong reminds some in the scouting community of Alshon Jeffery (Bears) or Anquan Boldin (49ers) because of his size/speed combination. He can win at the point of the catch, and this helps him immensely as a red-zone target.
