  1. Just to be different: Trade back and the Jets select Derek Barnett
  2. Those points are not from Watson's full body of work, only from the interceptions he threw. I should have stated that. Actually I like Watson from a prospect perspective, it was just during those interceptions, those 7 things came up. By the way, that last one came from Saban when talking about Watson after the first National Championship game. Had it in my notes but will search to see if the interviews is posted anywhere. Saban had mentioned that the way they wanted to slow down Watson was to hit him early and often and if you can't get there, just get people around his legs cause he tends to release the ball earlier than he should. I guess that was their game plan the second game too but obviously didn't work as they wanted it to.

  12. 2017 NFL Draft: 10 believable things amid so much speculation By Lance Zierlein Published: April 26, 2017 at 01:41 p.m. Updated: April 26, 2017 at 02:16 p.m. 0 Likes | 0 Comments The NFL draft process is like a four-month fog that only begins to clear up with a few days to go before the event. Now that the fog is beginning to clear, I'm beginning to see a clearer picture of how this draft could take shape. Here are 10 believable things amid all the draft rumors. 1. Three quarterbacks go in the first round: While there is plenty of smoke about which quarterbacks could be going where, there seems to be a consensus building that Mitchell Trubisky, Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes will end up in the first round when it is all said and done. Talk of DeShone Kizer, Davis Webb and Joshua Dobbs flirting with the first round might just be that ... talk. 2. McCaffrey comes off the board quickly: I know I've had Christian McCaffrey all over the place in mock drafts, but there is just too much buzz about McCaffrey ending up inside the first 14 picks for it not to happen. Carolina and Philadelphia are the two spots to keep a close eye on, from what I'm hearing. 3. Peppers takes a tumble: I don't expect Michigan's Jabrill Peppers to free-fall in this draft, but there were several teams who simply weren't carrying first-round grades on him even before information on his diluted sample from the NFL Scouting Combine came out. I spoke with a few teams who all believe that the Steelers at No. 30 might be his best chance to land in the first round. 4. Beware of leaks from San Francisco: If there is one thing that everyone knew about Mike Shanahan, it was that you would rarely find leaks emanating from the building. Therefore, I find it difficult to believe the sudden fountain of leaks that are coming from a team being coached by Mike's son, Kyle, regarding who the 49ers covet. The leaks appear to be strategic in nature to generate trade talks. 5. Safeties will dominate: While there's been plenty of buzz about this sudden push up the board by quarterbacks like Webb and Dobbs, it will be the safeties that come flying off the board within the first 50 picks. Players like Obi Melifonwu, Marcus Williams, Marcus Maye, Josh Jones and Justin Evans will get pushed up the board. 6. Haason Reddick before Reuben Foster: The heat surrounding Reddick is real. It's unlikely he even makes it to pick No. 15. On the other hand, Foster carries just enough concerns from teams from either a medical or character standpoint that it has vaulted Reddick past him. 7. There will be no value hunters for Conley: La'el Collins was a top prospect in 2015, but he went undrafted that year due to legal concerns. He was scheduled to be interviewed by police after the draft in connection with the murder of a woman he had a previous relationship with, Brittany Mills. Collins was not a suspect in the case and was never charged. The rich got richer, as Dallas added the talented lineman to its already talented unit as an undrafted free agent. You might hear a pundit say that a team will remember that and take a chance on Gareon Conley, who is being investigated by police after he was accused of rape by a woman earlier this month. They would be wrong. Several teams told me that, short of a complete clearance from police before the end of the draft, Conley will not hear his name called. 8. Texas A&M's Daeshon Hall will surprise: While Myles Garrett has been all over the draft coverage since day one, there hasn't been much talk about his teammate being a hot name. I'm hearing that, despite a belief in the media that he would go in Round 3 or 4, Hall is actually being targeted within the first two rounds and might end up inside the top 40. 9. Cleveland makes its move: Late reports about the Browns moving up for Mitchell Trubisky raise suspicion because of their public nature. Why give away strategy so openly? However, it's probably legit. Trubisky doesn't have a wealth of suitors and this is likely to be a buyer's market. Add it up, and the Browns should be able to land their man inside the top eight picks via trade. 10. David Njoku before Derek Barnett: This one would surprise people, but many teams see Barnett as a solid player rather than a special one, while Njoku is viewed as having a massive upside. It wouldn't surprise me if a team made a move up the board to snare Njoku before Barnett hears his name called. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000802698/article/2017-nfl-draft-10-believable-things-amid-so-much-speculation
  13. Mike Mayock's Mock Draft is supposed to be reveled soon. "In his first and only mock draft of the year, Mayock reveals his projections for all 32 first-round picks at 8 ET tonight on NFL Network. We were able to obtain the first four picks (see below). No real surprises are unveiled there. But after that, things start to get wild, with a pair of mystery teams making bold trades in order to grab their quarterbacks of the future. Tune in to find out the trade details, the targeted players, and much more." - NFL.com Here are his top 4 : Cleveland - Garret SF - Jamal Adams Chicago - Lattimore Jacksonville - Fournette I'm guessing the first trade is Tennessee out of the 5th spot to get in front of the Jets. Jets could also trade back with Fournette gone, Carolina and New Orleans going after McCaffrey. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000802751/article/mike-mayock-mock-draft-top-4-picks-revealed-two-trades UPDATE: Entire mock draft results: 1. Browns: Myles Garrett 2. 49ers: Jamal Adams 3. Bears: Marcus Lattimore 4. Jaguars: Leonard Fournette 5. TRADE Browns (via Titans): Mitch Trubisky 6. Jets: OJ Howard 7. Chargers: Solomon Thomas 8.

  14. Gruden's pick is actually Mahomes. He states it during the best of episode. Who would you take number 1? Fast forward to 55 seconds "You know I'm torn, but you can't sit on the fence. I'm gonna take, I'm gonna take Mahomes out of Texas Tech..."
