    Credit goes to various sources put together at Walter Football.com I know a lot of people don't like their site, but Walter and Charlie have a good grasp on rumors...

    There's growing sentiment around the league that Cleveland could decide that Derek Carr is its guy and use the fourth overall pick on him despite owning three picks in the top 35, including No. 26 overall.

    While many have the Browns taking a quarterback with the fourth pick of the draft, most believe they’ll nab a signal caller with either the 26th or 35th pick. If they don’t go quarterback in round one where does Cleveland look? Most believe it will be offensive tackle

    The Rams are "falling in love" with Khalil Mack. They'll decide between him and Sammy Watkins if they stay at No. 2 and if Jadeveon Clowney is not on the board, according to Charlie Campbell

    3 Teams View Derrick Carr as the number 2 QB in the draft

    The Lions are willing to do whatever it takes to trade up for Sammy Watkins

    A few QB needy teams are rumored to like the idea of going BPA in round 1 and taking Jimmy Garoppolo or Zack Mettenberger in round 2. (Bucs, Jags, and Jets love Garoppolo)

    Eagles have met extensively with Brandin Cooks, Kelvin Benjamin, Marquise Lee, and Mike Evans.

    Many teams have dropped Eric Ebron down their board due to character issues.

    Some times have Joel Bitonio graded as a first rounder after having him work out at center as well as guard. While not a surefire first rounder, the feeling is Bitonio could be a plug and play player at any position on the OL.

    Walter's snarky comments aside, it's not that bad of a site

    Eric Ebron character issues? Interesting. He hid them well here in the Triangle, then.

    Rams no doubt trying to draw interest in trade with the Khalil Mack talk...they have 2 bookend de's already and I really doubt they would draft him to play Sam...

    They stay put dollars to donuts it's greg robinson with the 2nd pick...the only other one even in contention would be Watkins and he's not Calvin Johnson level physical freak

    I understand why teams like bortles, but I consider him to have some of he worst ball skills since tebow as far as first rnd abs are. No he's no where near as bad as tebow.

    But you watch a full bortles game, and not just a few plays or a few aspects of his game, and it's not impressive. I just don't get the love for a qb who constantly throws an ugly ball.

    As for vikings, they seem to be tied to every trade up, trade down scenario I've seen over the last few weeks.

    4/14: The Texans, Jaguars, Browns and Raiders are all "strongly considering" passing on a quarterback in Round 1 and waiting until Round 2 to address that need.

    According to reports Johnny Manziel could be in play if he makes it to the Rams 2nd pick

    Remember last year when reports we're swirling that Ryan Nassib would be the first QB taken and in the top ten.

    If true, I don't think the Rams could do better than Robinson and Manziel.

    I hope the QB's fall and give us an opportunity to trade down. Saw a mock that had us trading the #19 to the Jags

    I see a lot of scuttlebutt that says Teddy Bridgewater's draft stock is falling rapidly. I don't buy it, I think it's pre-draft misinformation.

    You have years of college film to look at, and he was pretty dang good in college, I think everyone would agree. You're going to pass on him because he had a crappy workout? Yeah, right.

    I'm probably not the highest on Bridgewater, but I think this is nonsense.

    I disagree. I think his stock is slipping. He couldn't throw the ball against air during his workout, and he had a below average wonderlic test. I think those two things combined will conspire to lower his draft stock. We will just have to wait and see how much that workout hurt him. I know I would be very concerned if I was a gm after seeing that workout.

    I am not too excited about who might drop to 19, then again if Hickey drafts like Ireland draft positions wont mean a got-damn thing

    Weston Richburg and Joel Bitonio are being told by several teams that they could be picked late in round 1, but that they won't get out of the first half of round 2. Both are seen as players who can start right away.

    Taylor Lewan has conflicting reports. Some say that a few teams view him as being behind Zack Martin, but others have the feeling that he'll be the 2nd OT off the board behind only Greg Robinson. Either way, Lewan is gaining a lot of positive momentum in the last month before the draft.

    CJ Mosely could fall on draft day as many teams feel he's really beat up and doesn't have a lot of upside left in his game. Some feel that a slip into round 2 is very possible

    Kelvin Benjamin has not impressed during the interview process. Teams feel he lacks maturity, and the feeling is that he's putting bad weight on.

    Will Sutton is back to around 290 and is showing the explosion he showed as a junior.

    I'd bet on Mosley falling to the 2nd before I'd bet on him going top 15.

    With the WR's in this class, I don't know why a team would even bother with Benjamin.

    I think Sutton has the potential to be a good value pick.

    Buccaneers Will Take Bortles at No. 7 but Unlikely to Trade Up

    Interesting, we have a different view of things (again). Can understand why a lot are projection Mosley to fall (ostensibly because of injury history and wear and tear having played where he did in college), as I said in the other thread I think he'll go the other way draft day - if the Fins do get him at 19 I think they'll have done very well. Pre-draft is great, no one is wrong (yet) and no one right - so everyone's opinion could be equally valid. And we wont know who is right either on draft day itself or more often 4 or 5 years down the track when the player has either made it or busted out of the league.

    Health is one thing, but I'm more concerned that Mosley is JAG. I just don't see high-end tools with Mosley. I see a solid contributor, but I don't see a guy that's going to raise the level of a D - like a Willis or a Kuechly.
