  NFL | La'el Collins willing to move inside    Fri Mar 27, 09:12 PM

Former Louisiana State OT La'el Collins said Friday, March 27, that every team he has met with considers him a left tackle in the NFL, but he added that he would move inside to play guard if needed.

  NFL | Marcus Mariota to go second overall?    Thu Mar 26, 01:03 PM

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota will be selected with the second overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, in the opinion of an unnamed NFL general manager that is paying close attention to Mariota's market.

Footballguys view: After going all in on Zach Mettenberger verbally early in the offseason, now it sounds as though the Titans could be interested in Mariota. He'd be an interesting fit, and Tennessee's offensive line would give him time to read the field, but he's still someone who would benefit from some time on the bench as he learns the league or a coach who will totally craft an offense around him. We're not sure if Ken Whisenhunt is that guy. Mariota's ability to scramble is intriguing, but he needs to work on his pocket progressions more. Whisenhunt has been able to help other quarterbacks along before - Mariota is different than he has had before as well though.

  NFL | Michael Sam runs 40 at combine    Thu Mar 26, 12:03 PM

Free-agent DE Michael Sam (Cowboys) ran an official 4.99-second 40-yard dash at the NFL veterans combine Sunday, March 22, on his second attempt. His first attempt was recorded at five seconds flat. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.91 seconds at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine.

Footballguys view: Sam is undersized but is a tremendous worker. Many people feel as though his best bet is to go to the CFL and prove himself there before returning to the NFL.

  NFL | Randy Gregory had failed drug test    Thu Mar 26, 12:39 AM

Nebraska LB Randy Gregory said Wednesday, March 25, that he tested positive for marijuana at the NFL Scouting Combine in February. Back in February at the combine, executives from two teams indicated to NFL Media that there were concerns about Gregory's off-the-field 'issues.'

  NFL | Breshad Perriman posts fast 40 time    Wed Mar 25, 02:56 PM

Central Florida WR Breshad Perriman reportedly ran the 40-yard dash in under 4.3 seconds at his Pro Day Wednesday, March 25.

Footballguys view: Perriman is one of our favorite wide receivers in this draft class. He's a physical wide receiver who can dominate at the point of the catch. Perriman has a great size/speed combination and he can explode off the line of scrimmage.

  NFL | Ray Rice hasn't had workouts    Tue Mar 24, 05:39 PM

Free-agent RB Ray Rice (Ravens) hasn't had a workout with a team since he was released by the Baltimore Ravens after his domestic violence case.

Footballguys view: We're not sure Rice will get a ton of interest on the open market. Running backs can be found without the baggage that Rice will bring. He's not the player he used to be, and Rice may have to wait until after the season begins (and injuries hit) to get another opportunity.

  NFL | Ahmad Bradshaw trial update    Tue Mar 24, 04:25 PM

Updating previous reports, free-agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw (Colts) did not have any additional drugs aside from marijuana when he was charged with a misdemeanor marijuana count while driving, according to crime lab tests.

Footballguys view: Bradshaw has pleaded not guilty and has a pretrial conference scheduled for April 8. After his legal troubles are behind him, Bradshaw is unlikely to get that much interest on the open market.

  NFL | Michael Bush admits his career may be done    Tue Mar 24, 02:26 AM

Free-agent RB Michael Bush (Bears) ran a 4.91 in the 40-yard dash at the weekend's Veterans Combine, and he admitted to media afterward that his career may be over.

Footballguys view: It's like a Captain Obvious commercial. There were some interesting players at the veteran combine...and Bush was not one of them.

  NFL | Tyler Wilson shows strong arm    Mon Mar 23, 05:25 PM

Free-agent QB Tyler Wilson (Bengals) showed off the strongest arm at the veteran combine over the weekend. Wilson said he's had 'a lot of contact with a number of teams.'

Footballguys view: Wilson flamed out in the NFL quickly. A fourth-round pick for the Raiders in the 2013 NFL draft, Wilson is a strong leader with the arm to make every throw in the NFL. Making those throws accurately is a question mark. We'll see if some team gives him at least a camp invite.

  NFL | Jamaal Anderson healthy    Mon Mar 23, 05:21 PM

Free-agent DE Jamaal Anderson (knee) said he's fully recovered from a knee injury after taking part in the veteran combine this past weekend. 'I feel outstanding, not just physically but mentally, and I think it definitely humbled me to sit back and realize that I'm not entitled as a first-rounder to be on a roster. I think I'm going to cherish more of the journey now,' Anderson said.

Footballguys view: Anderson was the 8th overall pick in the 2007 NFL draft to the Atlanta Falcons. He's struggled to stay healthy and play effectively, so now Anderson is looking for another chance. At 6'6" 280 pounds, Anderson could get some attention from his performance at the veteran combine.

  NFL | Adam Carriker fine physically    Mon Mar 23, 05:18 PM

Free-agent DE Adam Carriker (quadriceps) said he has been physically cleared by Dr. James Andrews, and Carriker said he's feeling great physically. Carriker is expected to draw interest from the 50 scouts that were in attendance at last weekend's veteran combine.

Footballguys view: Carriker was out of the league last season after Washington released him a year ago. He's 30-years old and two years removed from a devastating knee injury. We'll see if Carriker can draw interest now after his performance at the veteran combine.

Free-agent QB Brady Quinn (Dolphins) was in attendance for the first ever veteran combine this past weekend, and he believes he can have a career revival in the NFL.

  NFL | Brandon Copeland has four offers    Sun Mar 22, 10:06 PM

Free-agent LB Brandon Copeland (Titans) said he ran a 40-yard dash time of 4.52 seconds at the 2015 NFL Veteran Combine Sunday, March 22, and he has offers from four teams.

Footballguys view: Signed by the Orlando Predators of the Arena Football League, Copeland was last in the NFL on the Titans' practice squad in 2014 before being released. He then tried out for the Chiefs and Steelers, but Copeland wasn't signed.

  NFL | Amari Cooper faster in 40?    Sun Mar 22, 10:03 PM

Former Alabama WR Amari Cooper was credited with unofficial 40-yard dash times of 4.43 and 4.42 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine, but teams have been informed that his times were between 4.35 and 4.38 seconds.

Footballguys view: Cooper is arguably the top wide receiver in the 2015 NFL draft. It's a strong group of wide receivers, but not as talent-laden as last year's class. We'd rank Cooper fourth (behind Sammy Watkins, Odell Beckham Jr. and Mike Evans) if he was in that class. Expect him to be a top-10 pick this year.

  NFL | Felix Jones fails to impress    Sun Mar 22, 08:46 PM

Free-agent RB Felix Jones (Steelers) didn't show the 'boost' he was known for early in his career during his drills at the 2015 NFL Veteran Combine Sunday, March 22, according to Daniel Jeremiah of the NFL Network.

Footballguys view: Jones wasn't one of the players who was really going to impress at the veteran combine. It's a tough road for a running back in today's NFL. It doesn't help veterans like Jones that this draft class is chock full of strong running back talent.

  NFL | Devin Gardner drawing interest    Sun Mar 22, 02:25 AM

Michigan QB Devin Gardner is drawing interest from some teams as a quarterback, while others view him as a wide receiver. He has already worked out with the Atlanta Falcons and Cincinnati Bengals, and he has visits scheduled with the New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Gardner is not a pro quarterback in our eyes. Our very own Cecil Lammey watched Gardner earlier this year during the week of practice for the East-West Shrine Game, and he noted Gardner's struggles as a wideout. Gardner is big and athletic, but he's not a refined route-runner and he doesn't quite know how to use his body to box out defenders. He's likely to be an undrafted free agent.

  NFL | James Harrison considering two teams    Sat Mar 21, 10:46 PM

Free-agent LB James Harrison said Saturday, March 21, that he will decide between re-signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers or joining the Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. The Titans hired former Steelers DC Dick LeBeau as their assistant head coach earlier this year. Harrison could follow LeBeau to the Titans.

  NFL | Santonio Holmes getting no offers    Sat Mar 21, 02:45 AM

Free-agent WR Santonio Holmes (Bears) has received no offers in the offseason and he wonders why he is out of a job. 'It baffles me a little to know that I'm not a part of any organization,' Holmes said. 'It is a gift and a curse at the same time. And I say that because (of) the gift of playing and the opportunity to be a figure in the National Football League.'

Footballguys view: Maybe just maybe we'll see Holmes get interest in August when training camp injuries hit. It's more likely that we've seen him play the final plays of his NFL career.

  NFL | Shane Ray impresses at pro day    Thu Mar 19, 09:37 PM

Former Missouri DE Shane Ray was clocked in the mid-4.5 range during his 40-yard dash attempts at his school's pro day Thursday, March 19, and one AFC defensive coach in attendance said that Ray is the 'most explosive' edge rusher in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Ray is one of the most impressive pass-rushers in this draft class. He gets off the snap quickly, can bend around the edge, and he has good closing burst to the quarterback.

Free-agent TE Jermaine Gresham (back) has been diagnosed with a herniated disc in his back, according to a source. He will undergo surgery Thursday, March 19.

Footballguys view: And this is why Gresham is still unsigned. His recovery time should have him back on the field around training camp. We'd be shocked if any team signed him before that time.

  NFL | Todd Gurley doesn't take part in pro day    Wed Mar 18, 05:40 PM

Georgia RB Todd Gurley (knee) didn't take part in his school's pro day Wednesday, March 18, as he recovers from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee from last November. He is hoping to be ready for full contact in July, and he could be ready for some drills during minicamps. Despite his injury, Gurley is expected to be selected in the first or second round of this year's draft. He has already visited with the Detroit Lions and has a visit scheduled with the Carolina Panthers. Scouts represented both the Chicago Bears and Pittsburgh Steelers at Gurley's pro day, too.

Footballguys view: This is no shock to anyone out there. Gurley is still likely to be a first-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft. Several teams are interested in this potential superstar. His size/speed/power combination is elite, and he's one of the best backs we've seen come into the league since Adrian Peterson.

  NFL | Melvin Gordon to visit Cowboys    Wed Mar 18, 11:10 AM

Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon will make a predraft visit with the Dallas Cowboys' coaching staff and scouts, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys lost DeMarco Murray in free agency to the Eagles. Adding Darren McFadden isn't much help, but drafting Gordon would be a big boost to the offense. Gordon is likely to be a first-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft. He's got the speed to be a threat to score any time he touches the ball. While Gordon is not a power back, he is a willing inside runner who doesn't try to dance his way out of trouble.

  NFL | Wes Welker not popular in free agency    Tue Mar 17, 11:51 PM

Free-agent WR Wes Welker (Broncos) is generating very little buzz on the open market, according to a league source. The lack of interest flows in part from a trend toward young receivers making an immediate impact.

Footballguys view: Three concussions in two years with the Broncos doesn't help. His four-game suspension (reduced to two) from last year for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing drugs doesn't help either. Welker might be considering retirement as there are not a ton of teams willing to take a chance on him at this point in his career.

  NFL | Few sniffs for Michael Crabtree    Tue Mar 17, 11:50 PM

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) has little to no market currently, according to a league source Tuesday, March 17. The lack of interest flows in part from a trend toward young receivers making an immediate impact.

Footballguys view: Crabtree has never quite lived up to his potential as a pro. Things fell apart in San Francisco last year, and now he's looking for a new start. An underneath receiver who is fearless over the middle, Crabtree should be getting a few suitors lined up now that the first wave of free agency is done.

  NFL | Little interest in Hakeem Nicks    Tue Mar 17, 11:49 PM

There is little to no market for free-agent WR Hakeem Nicks (Colts), a league source said Tuesday, March 17. The lack of interest flows in part from a trend toward young receivers making an immediate impact.

Footballguys view: We can't imagine teams lining up to add Nicks. He's not the same player he used to be, and Nicks may have to wait until we get closer to training camp to find a new home. This is another strong WR draft class, and that doesn't help these older receivers.

  NFL | Jermaine Gresham could undergo surgery    Tue Mar 17, 03:42 PM

Former Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (back) may have surgery Thursday, March 19, to repair a back injury.

Footballguys view: Gresham will meet with a doctor Wednesday, March 18. He will be ready for the start of training camp. We'll see if somebody takes a chance on Gresham even though he's got this back injury. Gresham may have to wait until he's healed to get a new team.

  NFL | Greg Hardy scaring away suitors    Mon Mar 16, 05:50 PM

Free-agent DE Greg Hardy (Panthers) is scaring some teams off because he's likely to be suspended for the first six games of the season for a domestic-violence incident. One general manager said Hardy 'is on our list, but pretty far down.'

Footballguys view: Talent isn't the issue with Hardy. When not suspended, he's one of the best pass-rushers in the game. Some team will eventually take a chance on him, it may just be a while.

  NFL | Jameis Winston may not attend draft    Mon Mar 16, 01:48 PM

Florida State QB Jameis Winston, who is widely projected to be the No. 1 overall selection in this year's NFL Draft, doesn't plan on attending the draft, as he'd rather spend the time with his family and friends in Alabama. Antonor Winston, Winston's father, said his son's decision 'was not set in stone.' Ohio State DT Dan Wilkinson, who was taken by the Cincinnati Bengals in 1994, was the last No. 1 overall pick not to attend the draft.

Footballguys view: It's Winston's decision--even though he's pretty much a lock to be number-one overall. This isn't Geno Smith *hoping* he'd be selected on the first night of the draft. The Buccaneers have not really kept it secret how much they're enamored with the Florida State signal-caller.

  NFL | Greg Hardy likely out six games    Mon Mar 16, 09:35 AM

Free-agent DE Greg Hardy (Panthers) is expected to be suspended for the first six games of the season after his domestic-violence incident, according to some teams' thinking.

Footballguys view: That's likely leading to the cold market he's faced. Hardy is a talented pass-rusher, but his off-field incidents have given teams pause when considering him as a free-agent addition.

  NFL | Tevin Coleman to visit three teams    Mon Mar 16, 07:43 AM

Indiana TB Tevin Coleman will visit the Baltimore Ravens, Arizona Cardinals and Carolina Panthers prior to the NFL Draft in April.

Footballguys view: We love that Coleman runs bigger than his size. He's got plenty of pop at the point of attack, and Coleman can regularly run through arm tackles. His upright and punishing running style makes durability a concern--as do his 500+ touches from college. Coleman should be a second- or third-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

  NFL | Jonathan Dwyer free to sign with any team    Sun Mar 15, 02:23 AM

Free-agent RB Jonathan Dwyer (Cardinals) is free to sign with any team, but the NFL has indicated Dwyer's discipline is 'pending' following Dwyer's guilty plea to a disorderly conduct charge.

  NFL | Marcus Mariota admits to nervousness    Fri Mar 13, 12:29 AM

Former Oregon QB Marcus Mariota said he was nervous during his workout at Oregon's pro day Thursday, March 12, and added that he felt his performance at the NFL Scouting Combine was better than his performance at his pro day.

Footballguys view: Please, for the love of all things that are holy, we don't have to hear about bad pro day performances dropping a player's draft stock. Last year, Johnny Manziel looked like a rockstar throwing predetermined routes to players who weren't covered while Teddy Bridgewater looked bad during his pro day. Tim Tebow and JaMarcus Russell had great pro days, while Drew Brees had a bad pro day. The pro day performance shouldn't impact a prospects grade much--if at all.

  NFL | Marcus Mariota struggles at pro day?    Thu Mar 12, 10:50 PM

Former Oregon QB Marcus Mariota called plays from a huddle and took snaps under center as part of his workout during Oregon's pro day Thursday, March 12, and he finished with seven incompletions. Overall, the workout did not go well, according to initial reports.

Footballguys view: It doesn't matter. Teams who know what they're doing won't consider a quarterback's pro day performance. Several players have flamed out (JaMarcus Russell, Tim Tebow, Johnny Manziel) after having fantastic pro days. Looking good throwing to a familiar receiver on a predetermined route with no pressure and no coverage is a lot different than hitting a skinny post while facing NFL blitzers.

Former Oregon QB Marcus Mariota will meet with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans during his Oregon pro day Thursday, March 12, with more meetings expected before the NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Here we go - get those Marcus Mariota-Chip Kelly rumors firing (even though he denied them...predictably we might add)! While the Eagles may or may not really be interested, we know that Tampa and Tennessee could use the help. Of course, many people feel Jameis Winston is Tampa's first choice. Either team could change their mind and if not, meet with him just to make it seem as if they are interested to drum up some trade value for their spot.

Free-agent RB Chris Johnson (Jets) will not face charges after being arrested on a misdemeanor weapons charge. Angela Starke, a spokeswoman for the state attorney's office in Orlando, said 'the evidence was not suitable for prosecution.' Johnson was also shot in the right shoulder in a separate incident during a drive-by shooting in Orlando earlier this month.

Footballguys view: Johnson has to get healthy before anything else but you have to think that, this incident aside, the interest on a 29-year-old back who looked shaky last season is pretty thin.

  NFL | Jim Schwartz taking time off    Thu Mar 12, 03:15 PM

Former Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator and Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said he will take a break in 2015 after not finding a situation to his liking. In the meantime, he will study the pro and college games. Schwartz is considering moving his family to Nashville, which is one of his favorite cities. He spent 10 seasons with the Tennessee Titans, including eight as the defensive coordinator from 2001 to 2008.

Footballguys view: A break is always good, and as we saw with Chan Gailey this offseason, you can hop back in if you aren't gone a terribly long time. That he's studying both college and pro teams means he sees how the NFL is changing and is willing to adjust - a good sign for getting a job later and smart on his part.

  NFL | Percy Harvin doesn't want to be gadget    Thu Mar 12, 08:55 AM

Free-agent WR Percy Harvin (Jets) wants to be more of a traditional receiver and not just a gadget, according to a source close to him. ''A lot of people have lied to him and told Percy that when he plays on their team he will be a traditional wide receiver,' the source said. 'My understanding is that Percy wants to play the position full-time or get closer to that. He doesn't want to be the gadget guy all the time. He's grown tired of that. He wants to have a defined wide receiver role. I'm not saying he doesn't want to ever catch the ball out of the backfield again or run a bubble screen. He'll do whatever it takes to help the team win. I just think he wants to be respected as a traditional wide receiver threat.'

Footballguys view: Harvin doesn't want to be what he is..a gadget player. He could have a larger role as an integral wide receiver if he could stay healthy and focused. Both of those things have been problems for Harvin in recent years.

  NFL | DeMarco Murray decision looming    Wed Mar 11, 09:12 PM

Updating an ongoing story, free-agent RB DeMarco Murray (Cowboys) is expected to make a decision Wednesday, March 11, as to where he will sign.

Footballguys view: It's the Cowboys, Eagles, Raiders, and Jaguars in the running. The Raiders are reportedly offering the most money, the Eagles are Murray's top choice, and there's always Jerry Jones possibly upping his offer at the last second to retain Murray. It's possible that other free agent running back moves will fall into place once this decision is made. No matter how it turns out, Murray's decision will register on the fantasy richter scale.

  NFL | Amari Cooper works at pro day    Wed Mar 11, 05:03 PM

Alabama WR Amari Cooper had his school's pro day Wednesday, March 11, but he did not run the 40-yard dash. Cooper stuck with his 40 time of 4.42 seconds at the NFL scouting combine last month. Cooper only ran routes and caught passes during the pro day Wednesday, and he's hoping to be the first receiver taken in the first round in this year's draft. The New York Giants and New York Jets both had their general managers in attendance to watch Cooper Wednesday. The Jets have the sixth overall pick and the Giants have the No. 9 pick.

Footballguys view: Cooper could off of the board as early as #4 to Oakland, but he could also fall behind Kevin White, who is bigger and faster than faster, and maybe even out of the top 10. He'll still be one of the top fantasy prospects out of this draft wherever he lands, and lasting until #11 and Teddy Bridgewater in Minnesota might actually increase his fantasy prospects over a top 10 destination. The Bears at #7 also look like a potential destination with Brandon Marshall gone to the Jets.

One scout believes Gordon will be taken among the top three running backs in this year's NFL Draft, although he might slip out of the first round. Gordon didn't run the 40-yard dash or do other tests Wednesday, because he was told his numbers at the scouting combine were good enough, including a 4.52-second 40-yard dash.
