Draft Week Rumor Mill: Thursday

With the 2015 NFL Draft only hours away, there are rampant rumors running around the league. In reaching out to sources, here are some recent rumors worth mentioning.

  • Even worse than the timing of Shane Ray's arrest is the off-the-field issue with LSU offensive tackle La'el Collins. He left the draft in Chicago to meet with police in Louisiana regarding the murder investigation of a pregnant woman. We reached out to league sources, and one general manager said they thought Collins wouldn't go in the first round unless this is completely cleared up before the draft starts on Thursday night. He may ultimately be cleared of any involvement, but no team can gamble that their first-round pick could be arrested for murder. Thus, Collins could easily slide in the 2015 NFL Draft.

  • In the final days leading up to the draft, many have been projecting the Houston Texans to take Nelson Agholor or Breshad Perriman with the 16th-overall pick. The reasoning is understandable, as Houston moved on from franchise great Andre Johnson this offseason, and they need a No. 1 receiver. However, sources say they don't see the Texans taking Agholor or Perriman at pick 16. Those two players would be options if the team moved down, but if Houston remains at 16, Perriman or Agholor won't be in the running for the pick.

  • In the lead up to the draft, we were the first to report a lot of news about pre-draft visits that were being taken by Clemson edge rusher Vic Beasley. Those same sources had some interesting things to say about Beasley on the eve of the draft.

    It doesn't sound like Beasley is in play for the Jaguars with the third-overall pick, like some have projected. Beasley to the Redskins at pick five also sounds unlikely. Sources say that Beasley's most likely landing spots are to the Jets, Bears and Falcons. That trio is selecting 6-8. All three are said to be seriously in play. Beasley's hope is to play for the Falcons, but he thinks his new home could easily be in New York or Chicago.

  • UConn cornerback Byron Jones wasn't a highly discussed prospect before the Combine when he jumped out of the gym. His amazing vertical and broad jump sent a charge into his draft stock and the workout warrior followed it up by running very fast at his pro day. Sources told us that Jones played well in his college career, but his tape wasn't overwhelming. Specifically, he looks stiff in man coverage. Without the great workouts, they don't think that Jones would be in the discussion for the first-round based on his tape alone. Sources believe that Jones has a good shot of going in the first round and is likely to go in the 30s if he isn't a Thursday night pick.

  • Last year, the Saints were rumored to be hot for wide receiver Brandin Cooks, trading up in the first round to land him. This year, there are rumors going around that the Saints are after Wake Forest cornerback Kevin Johnson. Corner was a big weakness for New Orleans last year, and most teams expect Johnson to be selected in the early teens.

    Draft Week Rumor Mill: Wednesday

    With the 2015 NFL Draft only hours away, there are rampant rumors running around the league. In reaching out to sources, here are some recent rumors worth mentioning.

  • There has been a lot of recent buzz regarding Stanford offensive tackle Andrus Peat. We spoke with a team picking in the top five that has Peat as their No. 1-rated offensive lineman. They say that they won't take Peat unless they were to trade down and he was the best player available, but they still rate Peat ahead of Iowa's Brandon Scherff. Scherff has been the consensus top offensive lineman in the draft and viewed as the favorite to be the first one selected. That could still be the case, but there is a lot of buzz about Peat going in the top half of the first round, and he could easily go in the top 10 to the Giants or Rams at picks nine and 10, respectively.

  • Alabama safety Landon Collins is going to be an interesting player to watch on Thursday night, and maybe even Friday night. Sources from a variety of teams told us that Collins has a wide range of where he could come off the board. We knows some teams picking in the teens that have Collins in consideration for their pick, but if those franchises pass, they think that Collins could really slide. He might go late in the first, but it isn't out of the question that he'll slip out of the first round, according to some sources. Some think he still is most likely to be a late first-rounder. Thus, there is a very wide range for him going from pick 16 into the 30s and approaching 40. Collins could be in store for a great night or a long night.

  • In terms of getting feedback from general managers for my final mock draft, one interesting recommendation was to have Wake Forest cornerback Kevin Johnson going off the board in picks 9-16. Their team had Johnson rated second behind Michigan State's Trae Waynes. They thought that Waynes would go somewhere in the top 12 and that Johnson will be up next to a team that wants cornerback help. There is a quiet buzz around Johnson in talking with teams. We know other teams picking in the teens that have Johnson in the mix for their selection. He could go higher than many expect on Thursday night.

  • Oklahoma nose tackle Jordan Phillips has a shot at being a late first-round pick, as there are a number of teams picking in the 20s that could take him. That group includes the Lions, Ravens, Broncos, Packers and Patriots. Sources think that Broncos are a team to keep an eye on. They lost Terrence Knighton in free agency and could use a nose tackle for Wade Phillips' 3-4 defense.

    The Packers are also a landing spot for Phillips, as they aren't locked in to B.J. Raji and Letroy Guion. The Patriots need a replacement for Vince Wilfork, and the Ravens have to replace Haloti Ngata. The Lions traded for Ngata to plug the hole filled by Ndamukong Suh, but they need another tackle to make up for the loss of Nick Fairley. Phillips and Florida State nose tackle Eddie Goldman could be in high demand. If Phillips slips out of the first round, he should go quickly in the second.

    Draft Week Rumor Mill: Tuesday

    Updated April 28, 2015
    By Charlie Campbell. Follow Charlie on Twitter @draftcampbell.



    With the 2015 NFL Draft only days away, there are rampant rumors running around the league. In reaching out to sources, here are some recent rumors worth mentioning.

  • A player who has really risen in the back portion of the lead up to the draft is Alabama's T.J. Yeldon. There are many teams that are rating him third behind Georgia's Todd Gurley and Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon. Numerous teams have told us that they view Yeldon as one of three backs who is truly explosive and also presents true three-down ability. Some teams are hoping that Yeldon gets to them in the second round, but they think there is a chance that Yeldon goes late in the first. The Dallas Cowboys are one potential landing spot, but there are other teams picking late in the first that could consider a running back. Teams also think that a team could trade back into the first round from the top of the second for Yeldon. That would add another year to his rookie contract and that could be very valuable given the way running backs age in the NFL.

    Sources told us that two teams that could be looking to land Yeldon early in the second round are the Jaguars and the Jets. The Jaguars need a feature running back, and Yeldon is liked in Jacksonville. Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan is said to really like Yeldon and feels he could be an Arian Foster-type runner. Maccagnan came from the Texans and knows that an elite runner can help compensate for weakness at quarterback. Our sources said that it would be surprising if Yeldon got past the Jaguars or Jets at the top of the second round.

  • Yeldon isn't the only back who is generating buzz about teams trading up for him. Todd Gurley is the star running back of the draft, and in speaking with teams selecting in the middle of the first round, they said they could see a team picking late in the teens or in the early 20s moving up for Gurley. The Chargers are an obvious team to keep an eye on in this regard.

  • A running back prospect who has the potential to slide is Indiana's Tevin Coleman. Sources say that teams like Coleman as a player but they have some medical concerns about a condition that could impact his stamina. Some teams also aren't sure that he will be able to play in high altitude conditions like Denver. Similar conditions have affected other players like veteran safety Ryan Clark. Coleman is a talented back, but there is a possibility that he slides in day two.

  • Most projections have the Broncos going with an offensive linemen in the first round. It makes sense, as Denver lost Orlando Franklin in free agency and the line had some weak moments in 2014. They also need a rock-solid offensive line, as the Broncos are entirely dependent on Peyton Manning playing well next season. While offensive line has to be in play, sources say that generally Gary Kubiak preferred to get linemen later. He had the view that good offensive linemen could be found and developed from picks after the first round. In his time with the Texans, Houston only took one offensive lineman in the first round during his 8-year tenure. That player was Duane Brown in 2008.

    Sources say that it shouldn't be a foregone conclusion that the Broncos go with an offensive lineman. They say that a defensive lineman or linebacker is also in the discussion for Denver.

    Draft Week Rumor Mill: Monday

    Updated April 27, 2015
    By Charlie Campbell. Follow Charlie on Twitter @draftcampbell.



    With the 2015 NFL Draft only days away, there are rampant rumors running around the league. In reaching out to sources, here are some recent rumors worth mentioning.

  • Last year, we reported that the Rams were falling in love with Khalil Mack. It was true. The Rams loved Mack, but they felt the position value and the status of their roster dictated that Greg Robinson had to be the pick at No. 2 because they needed a long-term left tackle and already had good edge rushers. This year, there is a similar discussion with St. Louis. Sources say that they like some of the right tackle and offensive line prospects, but the Rams also love wide receiver DeVante Parker. In fact, St. Louis is one of the teams that feels there isn't much of a difference between Parker and West Virginia's Kevin White.

    St. Louis really likes Parker, and he is definitely in play for their pick at 10. However, they still might elevate the need of the offensive line, as they have to get some help at right tackle and guard. Sources with the Rams say the four offensive linemen in play for their pick are Iowa's Brandon Scherff, Stanford's Andrus Peat, Miami's Ereck Flowers, and LSU's La'el Collins. The feeling I get is the Rams like Scherff and Peat the most among that group, but you never know for certain this time of year. It sounds like the Rams are in for a bit of a gut-wrenching decision with the 10th pick between Parker and one of those blockers.

  • Sources say that the Jets are open for business at pick six. General manager Mike Maccagnan loves to have lots of picks at his disposal and New York will be eager to field offers for the sixth pick. New York is hopeful that Amari Cooper or Kevin White will go before they are on the clock. That could create a need for a team to trade up to land the other receiver in front of the Bears.

  • Many are projecting the Jets to take Clemson edge rusher Vic Beasley if they stay at their pick. Surprisingly, New York did not host Beasley on a pre-draft visit. However, sources say not to read into that. The Jets held private meetings/work outs with Beasley, and they say he is in play for New York in the first round.

  • If the Jets trade down, the options for their pick are wide and varied. Sources say that Maccagnan is intrigued with Georgia running back Todd Gurley. They also have scouted the offensive tackles hard. Of course, they could draw on the depth of edge rushers and wide receivers. Don't be surprised if Maccagnan is willing to move down about 10 picks for a second-rounder.

  • One team that almost certainly won't be dealing with Maccagnan to move up is his former team, the Houston Texans. Sources say they have too many needs to give up a second-day pick and go get one of the top receivers to replace Andre Johnson. It sounds like the Texans are dead set on keeping their second- and third-rounder, so moving up appears very unlikely for Houston.

    Ifo Ekpre-Olomu's Injury Worse Than Advertised

    Updated April 22, 2015
    By Charlie Campbell. Follow Charlie on Twitter @draftcampbell.



    A few months ago, Oregon cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu was in the running to be the top-ranked corner, but then he suffered a knee injury during bowl practice before Oregon's game against Florida State. It was said to be a torn ACL, but team sources I've spoken to say the knee injury was much worse and was along the lines of Marcus Lattimore or Willis McGahee's rather than a simple ACL tear like the one suffered by Georgia running back Todd Gurley or Texas A&M offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi.

    Sources say that Ekpre-Olomu tore more than an ACL and there was a variety of damage done to his knee. At one point, there were some teams' medical staffs that were wondering if lingering effects of the injury would force Ekpre-Olomu to retire before every playing again, like Lattimore. However, recent checks have been more positive and teams feel that Ekpre-Olomu has a shot at playing again.

    The injury is significant enough, however, that some teams are putting Ekpre-Olomu in their undrafted prospect group. A contact from one team thinks that Ekpre-Olomu could have a shot at going on day three of the draft like Lattimore did, but their team doesn't have a round grade on Ekpre-Olomu because of the medical report. They have Ekpre-Olomu as an undrafted free agent as well.

    Vic Beasley, Tavaris Barnes Visit Redskins

    Updated April 20, 2015
    By Charlie Campbell. Follow Charlie on Twitter @draftcampbell.



    Sources tell WalterFootball.com that Clemson outside linebacker Vic Beasley and defensive end Tavaris Barnes took a pre-draft visit to the Washington Redskins. The Redskins hold the fifth-overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, and many have projected them to take a pass-rusher after losing Brian Orakpo in free agency.

    Beasley totaled 12 sacks, 33 tackles, 21.5 tackles for a loss, three passes batted and three forced fumbles in 2014. He was a pass-rushing terror, including excellent games against Florida State and South Carolina. After playing defensive end in college, Beasley's weight and run defense demand a position change to linebacker in the NFL. He could fit as a 3-4 outside linebacker. The 6-foot-2, 246-pound Beasley also would have the ability to play in a 4-3 scheme as a linebacker and situational defensive end. Redskins defensive coordinator Joe Barry has a history in the Tampa-2 and a 3-4 defense with the Chargers in recent years. Barry could use Beasley in a variety of ways.

    Sources say that Barnes (6-3, 275) has a lot of physical talent, and they are hoping to land him on their roster. They feel he is a sleeper pick and was better than Clemson defensive end Corey Crawford, who saw more playing time. As a senior, Barnes had 19 tackles with three sacks, one forced fumble and five tackles for a loss in limited opportunities. Many teams have worked him out privately and shown heavy interest. That list includes San Francisco, Tampa Bay, New England, Arizona, Houston, Seattle, New Orleans, Tennessee, and now the Redskins.

    In the Redskins' defense, Barnes could play a base defensive end in 4-3 packages with the ability to play some 3-4 defensive end or outside linebacker.

    Vic Beasley Visits Jaguars

    Updated April 17, 2015
    By Charlie Campbell. Follow Charlie on Twitter @draftcampbell.



    Sources tell WalterFootball.com that Clemson outside linebacker Vic Beasley will be taking a pre-draft visit to Jacksonville. The Jaguars are looking for an edge rusher, and Beasley could fit as the LEO linebacker in the Gus Bradley's 4-3 scheme. Many assume that the Jaguars are going to select Florida's Dante Flower Jr. in the first round, but Beasley could be in the running to go to Jacksonville with the third-overall pick.

    Beasley totaled 12 sacks, 33 tackles, 21.5 tackles for a loss, three passes batted and three forced fumbles in 2014. He was a pass-rushing terror, including excellent games against Florida State and South Carolina. After playing defensive end in college, Beasley's weight and run defense demand a position change to linebacker in the NFL.

    The 6-foot-2, 246-pound Beasley also would have the ability to play in a 4-3 scheme as a linebacker and situational defensive end. Sources told us that they feel that Beasley and Missouri's Shane Ray compare to the Seahawks Bruce Irvin. Bradley was the defensive coordinator of the Seahawks when they took Irvin in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

    The Jaguars addressed the defensive line in free agency by signing Jared Odrick to a big contract along with bringing back veterans Roy Miller, Tyson Alualu and Ziggy Hood. Sen'Derrick Marks played well in 2014, so the Jaguars have veterans on the defensive line and could use a young edge rusher to pair with them. Chris Clemons had eight sacks last season, but he turns 34 later this year.

    Todd Gurley Visits Colts

    Updated April 16, 2015
    By Charlie Campbell. Follow Charlie on Twitter @draftcampbell.



    The disaster of the Trent Richardson trade is still fresh in the minds of Colts fans, but despite that blunder, the Colts are giving consideration to using their 2015 first-round pick on a running back. Indianapolis signed veteran Frank Gore in free agency, but that isn't stopping the Colts from bringing in Georgia running back Todd Gurley on a pre-draft visit, according to sources.

    Indianapolis has the 29th-overall pick in the first round, and in order to land Gurley, the Colts will probably have to trade up. Gurley is likely to be chosen in the middle of the first round, so Indianapolis would have to put a big package together in order to land him.

    Gurley averaged 7.4 yards per carry in 2014 on his way to 911 yards with nine touchdowns. He also had 12 receptions for 57 yards before tearing his ACL in November against Auburn. The 6-foot-1, 222-pound Gurley is extremely fast, while also being very powerful. For more, check out our Todd Gurley Scouting Report.

    Randy Gregory, Marcus Peters Visit Texans; Gregory to Fall?

    Updated April 15, 2015
    By Charlie Campbell. Follow Charlie on Twitter @draftcampbell.



    Some of the players that take the most pre-draft visits before the NFL draft are those with off-the-field issues. Two first-round talents with concerns that are fitting in that mold are Nebraska edge rusher Randy Gregory and Washington cornerback Marcus Peters. Both players have the talent to be high first-rounders, but are visiting many teams because of their issues. One of them is the Houston Texans. Sources say that Gregory will visit the Texans before the draft and Peters visited Houston already.

    Sources in Gregory's camp are hopeful that he still will go in the first round after the revelation that he failed the Combine drug test for marijuana. Beyond the positive drug test, teams have other concerns with Gregory off the field. They are worried that he could have some hurdles to overcome similar to Brandon Marshall early in his career, or other defenders like Aldon Smith and Daryl Washington.

    Numerous teams are interested in meeting with Gregory to update his progress since the Combine and pro day. A general manager of a team picking late in the first round said that Gregory could slide in the 20s and there is the possibility he falls out of the first round. Another general manager thought that Gregory was too talented with too many teams needing a pass-rusher for him to slide out of the first. Gregory's camp wasn't definitive that he would go on Thursday night.

    The Texans could consider an outside linebacker like Gregory, as Jadeveon Clowney is coming off a knee injury, Brooks Reed left in free agency, and Whitney Mercilus is entering the final year of his contract.

    At cornerback, the Texans have a lot of money tied up in Johnathan Joseph and the recently re-signed Kareem Jackson. However, Joseph is aging and entering the late portion of his contract. Teams always need three cornerbacks, as the passing-driven NFL has defenses playing the nickel the majority of the time. Peters would give the Texans a trio of cornerbacks to help them defend the Colts' potent passing attack.

    A few weeks ago, we surveyed five teams and three of them thought that Peters would slip out of the first round after getting kicked off of Washington's team last year. Sources from multiple teams said Peters didn't do all that well interviewing with teams, so the Texans having a shot at Peters in Round 2 could be remote, but possible.

    At the very least, Houston is doing its due diligence on two very talented players that have serious question marks off the field.

    Titans to Host Jaelen Strong

    Updated April 14, 2015
    By Charlie Campbell. Follow Charlie on Twitter @draftcampbell.



    Many are projecting the Tennessee Titans to select Marcus Mariota with the second-overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. Even though the Titans have some talented young receivers in Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter, they have been spending a lot of time with the top receiving prospects in the 2015 NFL Draft. Alabama's Amari Cooper, Central Florida's Breshad Perriman, West Virginia's Kevin White and Louisville's DeVante Parker have all had or are taking pre-draft visits to Tennessee. According to sources, Arizona State's Jaelen Strong can be added to the list, as he will take a pre-draft visit to the Titans.

    After losing Nate Washington in free agency, Tennessee could use a third receiver. If the Titans draft Strong to join Wright and Hunter, that could give them a dangerous trio with mismatch size and speed. If the Titans trade down, Strong could be in play for Tennessee, but the more likely scenario is that Strong will be in consideration for Tennessee with the 33rd-overall pick to lead off the second round of the draft.

    Strong had 82 receptions for 1,165 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2014. He's a big, physical receiver who surprised many with a 4.44 time in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine.

    Todd Gurley to Visit Texans

    Updated April 8, 2015
    By Charlie Campbell. Follow Charlie on Twitter @draftcampbell.



    For months, Walt and I have slotted Georgia running back Todd Gurley to the Texans in our mock drafts (click here for my mock or here for Walt's mock draft.) Many Houston fans have objected to the projection because the team already has an excellent running back in Arian Foster. However, per sources, Gurley will take a pre-draft visit to Houston. Teams are only allowed to host 30 non-local players on pre-draft visits, so the Texans bringing in Gurley is significant.

    The Texans selecting Gurley at No. 16 overall makes sense in short-term and long-term planning of the team. Houston is likely to miss out on the top three wide receiver prospects, and there won't be an inside linebacker available worthy of the 16th-overall pick. Running back is a need for Houston, as its offense figures to be dependent on a potent rushing attack as the team enters the season with Ryan Mallett or Brian Hoyer as its starting quarterback.

    Foster turns 29 during training camp and has had durability issues during his career, so adding another elite runner makes sense. Last year, he missed a few games and couldn't finish a few others and that played a significant role in the Texans just missing out on the playoffs despite Houston's weakness at quarterback. With a two-headed monster at running back and one of the best defenses in the NFL, the Texans could have enough around the quarterback to make a run into the playoffs.

    If Foster were to go down in the preseason or in Week 2, for example, Houston's season would be in dire straits without another dynamic back to turn to. Gurley could extend the career and effectiveness of Foster by lessening his work load. In a couple of years, Gurley could replace Foster as the sole, primary runner.

    Gurley averaged 7.4 yards per carry in 2014 on his way to 911 yards with nine touchdowns. He also made 12 receptions for 57 yards before tearing his ACL in November against Auburn. The 6-foot-1, 222-pound Gurley is extremely fast while also being very powerful. He will be busy in the final weeks before the draft as a number of teams will want to examine his knee and determine how far along he is in his rehab. Sources say that there are optimistic projections of Gurley being ready at the start of training camp, which is a fast recovery from an ACL. At least with Houston, Gurley wouldn't have pressure to come back too quickly with a veteran like Foster in place.

    Vic Beasley Visiting Bears

    Updated April 4, 2015
    By Charlie Campbell. Follow Charlie on Twitter @draftcampbell.



    Sources have told us that Clemson outside linebacker Vic Beasley will be taking a pre-draft visit to Chicago.

    The Bears have switched to a 3-4 defense under new defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, and Beasley could fit as an outside linebacker and pass rusher for Chicago. The past few seasons, the once-great Bears' defense has declined and has been a liability compared to a productive offense. Chicago has some outside linebackers for their 3-4 in Pernell McPhee and Willie Young, however Beasley could be their top player available when the Bears are on the clock and it may be too tempting for the Bears to pass on an impact pass rusher like Beasley.

    Beasley totaled 12 sacks, 33 tackles, 21.5 tackles for a loss, three passes batted and three forced fumbles in 2014. He was a pass-rushing terror, posting excellent games against Florida State and South Carolina. After playing defensive end in college, Beasley's weight and run defense suggests he is due for a position change in the NFL.

    Beasley (6-2, 246) also would have the ability to play in a 4-3 scheme like the kind that Bears' head coach John Fox utilized in Denver and Carolina. In that system, a good fit for Beasley would be in a similar style to Broncos' linebacker Von Miller, who was very productive for Fox.

    Ereck Flowers Will Visit Jets, Rams, Browns, Colts

    Updated April 3, 2015
    By Charlie Campbell. Follow Charlie on Twitter @draftcampbell.



    Last week, we were the first to report that Miami left tackle Ereck Flowers was going to take pre-draft visits to the Buccaneers and Panthers. After Miami's pro day when a lot of executives were there to see Flowers and his teammates work out, more teams scheduled Flowers for pre-draft visits to their facilities. According to sources, those new additions to Flowers' travel schedule include the New York Jets, St. Louis Rams, Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts.

    New York is an interesting fit for Flowers. Left tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson turns 32 next season and perhaps the Jets would like an upgrade at right tackle. Starter Breno Giacomini turns 30 next season and is not a big liability, but New York could do better. Sources say the Jets were grading Flowers in the mid-teens but may have moved him up in recent weeks after the Combine and pro day.

    The Rams are an interesting match for Flowers with the 10th-overall pick. He could form a lethal duo of bookends with 2014's second-overall pick Greg Robinson. I have the Rams taking Flowers in my latest 2015 mock draft.

    The Browns hold first-round picks at 12 and 19. Flowers could come in and start at right tackle. In time, the 20-year-old Flowers could develop into the heir apparent at left tackle when Joe Thomas concludes his great career.

    The Colts would probably have to trade up from pick 29 to land Flowers. Sources say the Panthers are very interested in Flowers, who pick at 25. Indianapolis has allowed too many hits and pressures on Andrew Luck, and Flowers would be an upgrade at either tackle position.

    A general manager from a playoff team texted me that at the end of the season, they had a first-round grade on Flowers. Last week, he said since then, they have moved him into the top 20 on their draft board. They believe he will go in the top 20 and that they won't have a shot at landing the Hurricane standout. Thus the Colts and Panthers will have to consider moving up if they are compelled to draft Flowers.

    Sources say there are other teams that are bringing in Flowers for pre-draft visits, but they are keeping that confidential. Flowers also has had meetings and private workouts for the Saints, Falcons and Chargers, which is where Walt has them going in his 2015 NFL Mock Draft.
