  NFL | Drew Lock a busy man    Thu Mar 21, 03:19 PM

Former Missouri QB Drew Lock will add the New York Giants, Washington Redskins, Los Angeles Chargers and Detroit Lions to his list of pre-draft visits.

Footballguys view: Lock could be a top-10 pick in the 2019 NFL draft. He's got a strong arm and can make off-platform throws. Lock's footwork needs work and his arm mechanics are inconsistent, leading to accuracy problems. Some in the scouting community compare him to Derek Carr (Raiders).

Former Missouri QB and 2019 NFL Draft prospect Drew Lock met with the Miami Dolphins for dinner and board work Wednesday, March 20, and will do the same with the New York Giants on Thursday, March 21.

Footballguys view: Lock could be an option for the Dolphins with the no.12 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. He's got a big arm and is more athletic than some would think. His mechanics need work although we do give him credit for making off-platform throws.

  NFL | Will Grier impresses    Thu Mar 21, 11:44 AM

West Virginia QB Will Grier put on a show at his pro day and is rising up draft boards, according to a source. He's expected to meet with at least 10 teams before the draft, which include the New York Giants, Washington Redskins, Los Angeles Chargers, New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Grier is seen as a 'riser' in the 2019 NFL draft. He's currently seen as a second-round pick but he could sneak into the late first round of the 2019 NFL draft. Grier reminds some in the scouting community of Andy Dalton coming out of TCU. He's accurate on short-to-intermediate throws and is not afraid to stay in the pocket to take a shot downfield.

  NFL | Jerry Tillery can't do pro day    Wed Mar 20, 06:05 PM

Notre Dame DT Jerry Tillery (shoulder) was not able to participate at Notre Dame's pro day as he is recovering from recent shoulder surgery. He did perform well at the NFL Combine, however.

Footballguys view: Tillery measured in at 6'6" 295 pounds and ran a 4.93 40-yard dash. He's pretty much locked in as a first-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft and should become an instant starter in the pros. The expectation is that Tillery will be recovered in time for training camp.

  NFL | T.J. Linta gaining steam    Wed Mar 20, 01:23 PM

Former Wagner QB T.J. Linta reportedly impressed scouts at his pro day recently. At 6-foot-4, Linta has shown off a strong arm, intelligence and decision making. Former NFL coordinator Chris Palmer said Linta clearly displayed a pro-level arm. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports posits that Linta may be a late-round draft pick or a sought after undrafted free agent.

Footballguys view: Linta was a graduate transfer (Brown) in 2018 and in nine games he threw for 1,481 yards with 13 touchdowns and four interceptions. He gets rid of the ball quickly and does a good job of leading his receivers downfield. Linta is likely to go undrafted but we'll monitor his progress in crazy deep dynasty leagues.

Conrad (heart) was cleared Monday, March 18 by cardiologists at Boston's Mass General Hospital and will be able to full participant in an NFL Pro Day on April 8. Conrad was blocked from participating in the NFL Scouting Combine due to a potential heart condition.

Footballguys view: Conrad is seen as a third-day pick in the 2019 NFL draft. He reminds some in the scouting community of former Kentucky tight end Jacob Tamme due to his solid hands and strong route-running ability. We'll see if he can impress scouts now that he's been cleared for workouts. Conrad is not expected to test off the charts but it will be good to get numbers with the name/film.

Iowa TE T.J. Hockenson is a 'Day 1 impact player' in the 2019 NFL Draft, in the opinion of Daniel Jeremiah of

Footballguys view: Hockenson is drawing plenty of Travis Kelce comparisons in the pre-draft process. He's looking like a top-10 pick in the 2019 NFL draft and is sure to be selected in the first round. Hockenson is a smooth receiver with route-running ability that is unusual for a young tight end plus he's a ferocious blocker. We're excited to see him get to the NFL.
