Trading Back Would Make Sense For Lions in 2017 Draft

The NFL Draft Theater is being constructed outside for the first time. Yesterday, I made the case for and against the Jaguars drafting Alabama defensive lineman Jonathan Allen, and tomorrow, I will make the case for and against drafting Stanford defensive lineman Solomon Thomas.

Hunter Henry, 2nd round, San Diego: Though he shared time with Antonio Gates in San Diego, Henry is clearly the tight end of the future in southern California.

Deion Jones, 2nd round, Atlanta: Taken No. 52 overall, the LSU standout was among the best defensive players in the Super Bowl, and the linebacker had nine tackles against the Patriots. And I played for a great coach (Nick Saban). As a prospect, his vision and reads in a zone blocking scheme were highly praised. So far, they've been rewarded with a rookie season above expectations and a trade (for Bradford) that allowed them to recoup the most valuable asset they gave up for Wentz.

Bottom line is, Yeldon has been a disappointment so far for the Jaguars, and previous year, free agent signee Chris Ivory was disappointing as well, dealing with a couple of short term injuries and a fumbling issue (five fumbles on 117 carries). Are these comparisons relevant? I mean, if you watch him play he just knows the game. It was not an overnight thing that moved him to the top of these mock drafts, but rather a slow process. Hell, I'd bet he doesn't make it out of the top 5. I think it's likely he's the first quarterback off the board. The next highest paid RB in terms of guarantees is LeSean McCoy, who is guaranteed 45.63% of his $40 million total contract value: $18,250,000.

Miami's David Njoku likely will join Howard in the first round and Mississippi's Evan Engram has a chance to sneak in as well.

As construction of the NFL Draft stage continues, the league has released more images showing what the Ben Franklin Parkway will look like during draft week. While he can plow through defenders and run past them, he isn't able to shake or elude them.

Gruden said he doesn't envision Williams, the best jump-ball receiver in the draft, making it to 21, either.

Crew Can No Longer Displace Seated Passengers Aboard United Flights
Adding that the change is "one of our initial steps in a review of our policies in order to deliver the best customer experience". United expects the revenue-per-mile figure to rise by 1 to 3 percent in the second quarter.

Dane Brugler: T.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin.

Enjoy the week, just try not to take what you hear between now and Roger Goodell announcing the actual selections so seriously. His whole season was weird, looking back at it. The speedy Ross, on the other hand, could slide because of medical questions. And finally I get word that it's over, and I was extremely wrong. Pushed through multiple injuries during college career. Averaged 6.8 yards per carry as junior with 15 touchdowns.

All in all, I think Ivory was incredibly shaken up from his undisclosed medical issue to start the season: He was literally rushed to the hospital on the Jaguars opening day.

To add to all of this, is Leonard Fournette even a scheme fit in Jacksonville?

The positions that have never garnered a first round pick are as follows: tight end, safety, running back, and interior offensive line. "A trade up could allow the Bears to pick Texas A&M's Myles Garrett, the most dominant pass rusher in this year's draft, or more likely Watson, who checks every box for what general manager Ryan Pace wants in a franchise quarterback".

Throughout the offseason, we'll be profiling players who may end up in Denver when all is said and done with the 2017 NFL Draft.
