1.Dynasty | Marquise Brown selected by Baltimore (Dynasty League Football) The Baltimore Ravens selected wide receiver Marquise Brown with the 25th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft Analysis: It's about time. The 2019 marks the longest draft in history without a running back or wide receiver selected. True to many mock drafts, Brown is the first receiver off the board, many showing him mocked to Baltimore. The fit for Brown with the Ravens is ideal, who remain badly in need of receiving weapons. With the mobile sophomore, Llamar Jackson, under center, Brown will be used all over the field and will provide Jackson with... (More)13 minutes
2.Dynasty | Dolphins pass on a quarterback (Dynasty League Football) The Dolphins selected Christian Wilkins with the 13th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, passing on Dwayne Haskins and other quarterbacks. Analysis: This move should lock Ryan Fitzpatrick into the starter's role for Miami next season. The ultimate bridge quarterback, Fitzpatrick will keep the seat warm for what is likely going to be a high selection of a quarterback in the 2020 NFL Draft, otherwise known as "Tank for Tua." As for Fitzpatrick, he's now in line for another Fitzpatrick-esque season featuring some unbelievable h... (More)13 minutes
3.Dynasty | Josh Jacobs selected by Oakland (Dynasty League Football) The Oakland Raiders selected running back Josh Jacobs with the 24th selection of the 2019 NFL Draft Analysis: Jon Gruden and new GM Mike Mayock were patient and were able to land, arguably, their primary need and top player at his position, running back Josh Jacobs. Jacobs is a three-down capable back with low mileage on his tires and will see immediate field time for the Raiders. His 640 yards and 11 touchdowns last year aren't exactly eye-popping, but Jacobs is very unique. ... (More)13 minutes
4.Dynasty | N'Keal Harry selected by New England (Dynasty League Football) The New England Patriots selected wide receiver N'Keal Harry with the 32nd pick in the 2019 NFL Draft Analysis: Bill Belichick surprises on a couple of fronts with this selection. First, he didn't trade out for the second year in a row. Second, he actually selected a new toy for Tom Brady, receiver N'Keal Harry. After a solid year at Arizona State that featured his second straight 1,000 yard season, Harry was one of the most watched prospects at this year's scouting combine. He didn't disappoint by posting strong numbers in the bench press (27), vertical (38'5"), broad... (More)13 minutes
5.Dynasty | Noah Fant selected by Denver (Dynasty League Football) The Denver Broncos selected tight end Noah Fant with the 20th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft Analysis: Fant is a true pass catcher, has great speed for the position and fits the mold of a "move" tight end almost perfectly. With great athleticism and a nose for the end zone, he'll be a valuable target for new Bronco quarterback, Joe Flacco. Fant's 19 career touchdowns on only 78 career catches while at Iowa shows just how explosive he can be. Fant is more athletic than Iowa teammate TJ Hockenson but does not possess the same lev...

6.Dynasty | Devin Bush selected by Pittsburgh (Dynasty League Football) The Pittsburgh Steelers selected linebacker Devin Bush with the tenth pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Bush will likely have to play on the outside at the next level due to size but compares favorably to Devin White, selected earlier by Tampa Bay. Unlike White, Bush is already proven himself as capable in coverage and what he loses due to size he makes up for in speed. He won't project as highly as will White in IDP formats due to his outside role, but he's got upside in Pittsburgh's 3-4 scheme.13 minutes
7.Dynasty | Case Keenum has sudden competition (Dynasty League Football) The Redskins have found their quarterback of the future in Dwayne Haskins with the 15th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: The Redskins stood pat at the 15th overall pick and were rewarded with the player many believed was the best quarterback in the draft and a possible first overall pick. Washington added Case Keenum in the off-season to be their starter, but this selection puts that notion clearly in doubt. We should have a quarterback competition in Washington this Spring and Summer and it would surprise very few if Haskins beat ... (More)13 minutes
8.Dynasty | Dwayne Haskins selected by Washington (Dynasty League Football) The Washington Redskins selected quarterback Dwayne Haskins with the 15th pick of the 2019 NFL Draft Analysis: Haskins doesn't have the experience you may want when you burn a top pick in the NFL Draft. However, he showed enough in one year as the starter at Ohio State to solidify himself as just that. With 4,831 passing yards, 50 touchdowns (both tops in the nation) and just eight interceptions, Haskins has production unlike many other quarterbacks from major conferences the past few years. In dynasty terms, save in Super-Flex formats, H... (More)13 minutes
9.Dynasty | Isaiah Crowell's starting role short lived (Dynasty League Football) The Raiders selected Josh Jacobs with the 24th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: DeAndre Washington, Jalen Richard and Isaiah Crowell looked to form a committee attack in Oakland this season, but the selection of Jacobs throws cold water on that idea. All three of these backs have really fallen on hard times as of late and none of them really fit the mold of what Jon Gruden (and apparently Mike Mayock) believe needs to be the identity of the Raiders, which is clearly "smashmouth football." Crowell (RB52), Richard (RB61), a... (More)13 minutes
10.Dynasty | Patriots find an alpha receiver to replace Gordon (Dynasty League Football) The New England Patriots drafted N'Keal Harry with the final pick in round one of the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: With Chris Hogan moving on, Josh Gordon on the suspended list and Rob Gronkowski retiring, the Patriots were in desperate need of pass catchers, so they pounced on Harry when he was still on the board with the final pick in the first round. The drafting of Harry puts even more doubt on Gordon returning to a prominent role this season. If you've been an owner holding on to Gordon for dear life, this may just be the off-season... (More)13 minutes
11.Dynasty | Joe Flacco dodges a bullet (Dynasty League Football) The Denver Broncos traded the tenth overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft to the Pittsburgh Steelers, passing on several quarterbacks. Analysis: The Steelers used the pick on Devin Bush, while the Broncos passed on both Dwayne Haskins and Drew Lock with the tenth overall pick. For the moment, this is great news for incumbent starter Joe Flacco, who looks like he'll do more than just keep a seat warm for a hotshot rookie. Flacco is no better than a bye week fill-in and QB2, but that looks more like we can say for the likes of other veteran... (More)13 minutes
12.Dynasty | TJ Hockenson selected by Detroit (Dynasty League Football) The Detroit Lions selected tight end TJ Hockenson with the sixth pick in the 2019 NFL Draft Analysis: With 49 catches for 760 yards and six touchdowns last season, Hockenson proved to be a truly special prospect at the position. The 6'5", 250 pound Hawkeye posted an impressive 4.70 40 time at the Combine and production to match. Fellow Hawkeye, Noah Fant, has been equally impressive and either could have been first off the board. Regardless, Hockenson falls to an immediate starting situation as a three-down player capable as an inline blocker as well as the 'move' end as a receiver. Th... (More)14 minutes
13.Dynasty | Eli Manning on the hot seat (Dynasty League Football) The Giants took their quarterback of the future in the form of Daniel Jones from Duke with the 6th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: This is a clear gut punch to Manning owners who were hoping to salvage some late career value as a backup quarterback on their dynasty teams. Manning will likely be the incumbent starter this year, but his leash will be very, very short now that the Giants have made their move and found their quarterback of the future. Despite the overwhelming disdain for him, Manning posted a good season last year with 4,299 passing yards and 21 touchdowns, while throwing just 11 interce... (More)29 minutes
14.Dynasty | Daniel Jones selected by New York Giants (Dynasty League Football) The New York Giants selected quarterback Daniel Jones with the fifth pick in the 2019 NFL Draft Analysis: The first real surprise of the 2019 NFL Draft. While most of the focus is on the likes of Kyler Murray, Dwayne Haskins and Drew Lock in 2019, Jones is a sleeper. Top quarterback coach, David Cutcliffe developed Jones and he enters the NFL as a very experienced three-year collegiate starter who put up great numbers despite not having a great surrounding cast. It's fair to wonder if Jones has a ceiling similar to that of Joe Flacco as o... (More)29 minutes
15.Chiefs suspend Tyreek Hill from team activities (FantasyPros) The Kansas City Chiefs have suspended Tyreek Hill from participating in team activities while they further investigate his recent off-field family issues. Analysis: Despite not being charged by the district attorney, an audio clip that is now public has landed Hill in even more hot water as questions about his character will keep him from the team. Not only is his time with the Chiefs now in question, but his career in the NFL as a whole.30 minutes
16.Dynasty | Devin White selected by Tampa Bay (Dynasty League Football) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected linebacker Devin White with the fifth pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: White projects well to the NFL and will be a day-one starter. He’s a quick-twitch, sideline-to-sideline player, who has a nose for the ball and speed to get to it quickly. A bit undersized as an inside presence at the position, White will need to add some size at the next level and his technique will need to improve. He’s not yet proven as a three-down linebacker but he’ll immediately fill in for Kwon Alexander and sho... (More)40 minutes
17.Dynasty | Nick Bosa selected by San Francisco (Dynasty League Football) The San Francisco 49ers selected defensive end Nick Bosa with the second pick in the 2019 NFL Draft Analysis: We normally don't highlight many IDP prospects, especially outside of the linebacker position, but Bosa is a versatile 3-4 or 4-3 end who has the pedigree and physical make-up to be highly productive at the next level, though not as agile as his brother Joey Bosa (Chargers). Carrying some injury risk, IDP coaches likely won't select Bosa ahead of many of the inside linebacker prospects in the early rounds of this class, but h... (More)51 minutes
18.Dynasty | Josh Rosen sees his successor taken (Dynasty League Football) The Arizona Cardinals have taken Kyler Murray with the first pick in the NFL Draft. Analysis: Rosen was the tenth overall pick just last year and played with one of the worst offensive casts in football last season. While Rosen had some ups and downs, he still posted 2,278 passing yards and 11 touchdowns, while throwing 14 interceptions. There's no doubting Rosen's talent, but a change in scenery is coming and his next team will undoubtedly have less invested in him than the Cardinals did. It's a tough break for Rosen, especially since he really didn't have a chance last season. Our QB2... (More)1 hour
19.Dynasty | Tyreek Hill has recording handed over (Dynasty League Football) A recording allegedly incriminating Tyreek Hill for child abuse has been acquired by a TV Station in Kansas City. Analysis: Just when this story seemed to be on the shelf, word has leaked out that KCTV5 in Kansas City has acquired a potentially explosive recording of Hill taking responsibility for injuries to his girlfriend's son. If this proves to be credible, this could have major ramifications to Hill's career. The Chiefs have been somewhat inconsistent with their handling of players with off the field trouble (they cut Kareem Hun... (More)1 hour
20.Dynasty | Kyler Murray selected by Arizona (Dynasty League Football) The Arizona Cardinals selected quarterback Kyler Murray with the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft Analysis: At 5’10”, Murray projects as the shortest NFL starter. In fact, no other quarterback other than Seattle’s Russell Wilson stand less that 6’ in height. As a one-year phenom at Oklahoma, the Heisman trophy winner posted a ridiculous 4,361 passing yards, 1,001 rushing yards and 54 touchdowns with just seven interceptions, apparently leaving his baseball dreams in the dust to pursue an NFL career in the process. ... (More)1 hour
21.N’Keal Harry selected No. 32 by New England Patriots (FantasyPros) The New England Patriots have selected wide receiver N'Keal Harry with the No. 32 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: The Patriots have brought some stability to their passing attack. Harry is a talented receiver that can win at all four levels of the field. He is explosive after the catch, and is also a 50/50 ball winner. According to PFF College, Harry had 17 contested catches in 2018, good for seventh in the nation. He ranked eighth with 32 plays of over 20 yards. Harry is a WR2 who could become an elite fantasy weapon in this offense.1 hour
22.Patriots end first round with WR N'Keal ... (Rotoworld) Patriots selected Arizona State WR N'Keal Harry with the No. 32 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Harry (6’2/228) declared for the draft after a prolific three-season run as a Sun Devil, amassing a career 213/2,889/22 (13.6 YPR) receiving line and efficiently catching 85% of his targets with 20-plus-yard gains on 44% of his receptions last year. Harry helped his stock in Indy with a 4.53 forty, 38 ½-inch vertical, and cumulative 88th-percentile SPARQ score, also measuring in with long arms (33") for a wide catch radius. A physical clasher who maximizes his size and averaged 7.1 yards after catch per reception in ... (More)1 hour
23.Kaleb McGary selected No. 31 by Atlanta Falcons (FantasyPros) The Atlanta Falcons have selected former Washington OT Kaleb McGary with the No. 31 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft after acquiring the pick from the Los Angeles Rams. Analysis: The Falcons made a surprise move by trading the 45th and 79th picks to the Rams in order to move up to No. 31 and select McGary. It's even more surprising considering the team spent its 14th pick on another offensive lineman Chris Lindstrom earlier in the first round. Matt Ryan and the wide variety of skill position players around him should be well-protected heading into this season.1 hour
24.Falcons trade up for UW OT Kaleb McGary (Rotoworld) Falcons traded up with the Rams to select Washington OT Kaleb McGary with the No. 31 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: McGary (6’7/317) made 47 starts as the Huskies’ stalwart right tackle, earning the 2018 Morris Trophy as Pac 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year. McGary tested as a 73rd-percentile athlete at the Combine, but measured in with substandard 32 7/8-inch arms and flashed heavy feet on tape. He is also old for a rookie – having turned 24 in February – and was diagnosed with a heart arrhythmia disorder but was medically cleared by most teams. Nevertheless, scouts have likened McGary to Rob Havenstein as a pr... (More)1 hour
25.Deandre Baker selected No. 30 by New York Giants (FantasyPros) The New York Giants have selected CB Deandre Baker with the No. 30 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft after acquiring the pick from the Seattle Seahawks. Analysis: The Giants have a total of 12 picks in this year's draft so they used some of that capital to trade up for Baker. The Georgia product is the first cornerback taken in the 2019 draft and will instantly help New York's secondary.1 hour
26.L.J. Collier taken by Seattle Seahawks at No. 29 (FantasyPros) With the 29th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected TCU LB/Edge L.J. Collier. Analysis: In the pick they received from trading Frank Clark to the Chiefs, the Seahawks went out and grabbed Collier, a player who should be able to come in and supply some of the much-needed pressure off the edge.2 hours
27.Giants move up to grab CB Deandre Baker (Rotoworld) Giants traded up with the Seahawks to select Georgia CB DeAndre Baker with the No. 30 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: New York gave up the 37th pick, the 132nd pick, and the 142nd pick to move up. Baker (5’11/193) made 30 starts in four years at UGA, collecting 31 career pass breakups and seven interceptions on his way to earning the 2018 Thorpe Award as the nation’s top defensive back. PFF College credited Baker with an SEC-low 40.2 passer rating when targeted in 2018. Although Baker managed a 4.52 forty at the Combine, he improved to the 4.48-4.49 range at Georgia’s Pro Day and is more of an instincts-based cover... (More)2 hours
28.Seahawks draft L.J. Collier at No. 29 (Rotoworld) Seahawks selected TCU DE L.J. Collier with the No. 29 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Collier (6’2/283) spent his undergrad seasons at TCU as a situational rusher, then broke out for 11.5 tackles for loss and six sacks to earn first-team All-Big 12 from the conference’s coaches as a fifth-year senior. Only teammate Ben Banogu tallied more QB pressures among Big 12 edge defenders than Collier (54) in 2018. Whereas Banogu shredded the Combine, however, Collier’s workout metrics sent up a red flag with 11th-percentile SPARQ results. Built oddly and not an explosive mover, Collier best projects as a rotational three te... (More)2 hours
29.Jerry Tillery selected No. 28 by Los Angeles Chargers (FantasyPros) The Los Angeles Chargers have selected defensive tackle Jerry Tillery with the No. 28 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: The Chargers hit the jackpot. A potential top ten talent in most draft classes, Tillery can single handedly take a game over. His motor runs hot and cold, but playing on such a talented line is sure to get his juices flowing. A power rusher who can get after the quarterback, Tillery is a name to remember for IDP owners.2 hours
30.Johnathan Abram selected No. 27 by Oakland Raiders (FantasyPros) The Oakland Raiders have selected former Mississippi State S Johnathan Abram with the No. 27 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: After selecting Clelin Ferrell and Josh Jacobs with the No. 4 and No. 24 picks respectively, Oakland adds a playmaker to the secondary by selecting Abram with the team's final pick in the first round. Abram adds an athletic and explosive element to the Raiders' defense.2 hours
31.Raiders take MSU S Johnathan Abram at No... (Rotoworld) Raiders selected Mississippi State S Johnathan Abram with the No. 27 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Abram (5’11/205) made four starts as a true freshman at Georgia in 2015, left the program for personal reasons, spent a year in JUCO, then exploded for 14 tackles for loss, five sacks, three forced fumbles, and two picks across 18 starts with the Bulldogs. Experienced at slot corner, safety, and nickel/dime back, Abram is a straight-linish downhill safety in the Landon Collins mold with plus open-field speed (4.45 forty) and tone-setting physicality best employed near the box. 2 hours
32.Montez Sweat selected No. 26 by Washington Redskins (FantasyPros) The Washington Redskins have selected DE Montez Sweat with the No. 26 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft after acquiring the pick from the Indianapolis Colts. Analysis: Sweat is an athletic specimen who piled up 22 sacks in 25 games the past two years at Mississippi State. He also ran a 4.41 forty at 260 pounds. There were concerns over a possible heart issue for Sweat but it now appears as if he might've been misdiagnosed. If his health checks out this could wind up being a great pick for Washington.2 hours
33.Washington trades up for EDGE Montez Swe... (Rotoworld) Redskins traded up with the Colts to select Mississippi State EDGE Montez Sweat with the No. 26 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Washington sent the No. 46 pick this year and a 2020 second rounder to Indy to move up. Sweat (6’6/260) bounced from Michigan State to JUCO and finally Mississippi State, where he spent two years, earning first-team All-SEC in both with 29.5 TFLs and 22 sacks in 25 starts. He showed freakshow athleticism at the Combine with 97th-percentile SPARQ results including wideout-like 4.41 speed. Sweat wins with first-step quickness and Go-Go-Gadget 35 ¾-inch arms, and PFF College credited him with ... (More)2 hours
34.Ravens land Marquise 'Hollywood' Brown a... (Rotoworld) Ravens selected Oklahoma WR Marquise "Hollywood" Brown with the No. 25 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Brown (5’9/166) spent two years with the Sooners after transferring from JUCO, amassing a career 132/2,413/17 (18.3 YPR) receiving line as Baker Mayfield, then Kyler Murray’s go-to guy. Antonio Brown’s cousin, Marquise’s game is built on speed and explosion, leading all of Division I in catches of 50-plus yards (14) over the past two seasons. In 2018, 35% of Brown’s receptions gained at least 20 yards. Ex-NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah called Brown’s tape the best in this year’s class and compared him to ... (More)2 hours
35.Marquise Brown goes to the Ravens at No. 25 after trade with Eagles (FantasyPros) With the 25th overall pick in the NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens selected Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise Brown. Analysis: The Ravens traded back from the 22nd pick with the Eagles and received additional picks in the fourth round (No. 125 overall) and sixth round (No. 197 overall). With the 25th pick, they selected Brown, a speedy wide receiver to pair with quarterback Lamar Jackson. While he is a bit undersized, Brown is a playmaker who should step in on Day 1 and create matchup problems for opposing defenses and should be a first-round pick in rookie-only dynasty drafts.2 hours
36.Josh Jacobs selected No. 24 by Oakland Raiders (FantasyPros) The Oakland Raiders have selected running back Josh Jacobs with the No. 24 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Josh Jacobs is heading to Oakland. With Marshawn Lynch retiring, the Raiders land their top rated running back. Jacobs' raw totals do not standout, but his analytics are another story. Jacobs posted 4.07 yards after contact per attempt, and forced 0.26 missed tackles per attempt in 2018. The ultimate tape over production back, Jacobs was mired in an extremely talented Alabama backfield. Jacobs is in line for the lead back role, and should vie for high end RB2 value as a rookie.2 hours
37.Raiders make Josh Jacobs first RB off bo... (Rotoworld) Raiders selected Alabama RB Josh Jacobs with the No. 24 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Jacobs is the first back off the board with the pick the Raiders got in the Khalil Mack deal last summer. Jacobs (5’10/219) operated as Derrick Henry’s lightly-used complement as a freshman, battled hamstring injuries and focused on special teams as a sophomore, then rushed 120 times for 640 yards (5.3 YPC) and 11 TDs as a 2018 junior, also catching 20 balls. Jacobs gained a first down or hit pay dirt on a nation-best 41% of his runs last season and averaged over 4.07 yards after contact per carry. Jacobs ran 4.60/4.63 at the Cri... (More)2 hours
38.Tytus Howard selected No. 23 by Houston Texans (FantasyPros) The Houston Texans have selected former Alabama State OT Tytus Howard with the No. 23 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Howard's draft stock has risen rapidly in the days and weeks immediately leading up to the draft, and he ultimately ends up a first round selection. The Texans get some help to shore up one of the worst offensive lines in football and give some much-needed protection to QB DeShaun Watson.2 hours
39.Texans take small-school OT Howard at No... (Rotoworld) Texans selected Alabama State OT Tytus Howard with the No. 23 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Howard (6’5/322) shined at quarterback and as a basketball player in high school and was recruited to Alabama State to play tight end, but he landed at right tackle and went on to start there for 3 ½ years, earning first-team All-SWAC as a senior. Long armed (34") with huge hands (10 5’8"), Howard generated scouting attention in a dominant 2018 performance against Auburn. Albeit not an elite athlete (28th-percentile SPARQ), Howard’s length and nasty on-field demeanor give him a shot to become a long-term starter... (More)2 hours
40.Andre Dillard selected No. 22 by Philadelphia Eagles (FantasyPros) The Philadelphia Eagles have selected OL Andre Dillard with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft after acquiring the pick from the Baltimore Ravens. Analysis: The Washington State product slips to the 22nd pick here. He was coveted by the Texans at 23, which is what prompted the Eagles to trade up and get their guy. Dillard earned PFF College's highest pass blocking grade as a senior last season.2 hours
41.Eagles trade up to 22 for OT Andre Dilla... (Rotoworld) Eagles traded up with the Ravens to select Washington State OT Andre Dillard with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Philly traded the 25th pick, the 127th pick, and the 197th pick to move up. This is a value selection for a team that will have to replace 37-year-old LT Jason Peters in the near future. Dillard (6’5/315) made 42 starts at left tackle for Mike Leach’s Cougars, earning first-team All-Pac 12 honors and PFF College’s highest pass-blocking grade in the nation as a senior. He shredded the Combine, running 4.96 with an elite 4.4-second short shuttle, a highly predictive metric for offensive line su... (More)2 hours
42.Darnell Savage goes to Packers at No. 21 after trade with Seahawks (FantasyPros) With the 21st pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers selected Maryland safety Darnell Savage. Analysis: The Packers traded the 30th overall pick in the first round (a pick they originally received from the New Orleans Saints), the 114th overall pick, and the 118th overall pick in return for the 21st overall pick. With the pick, they selected Savage, a safety who can help in both coverage and the run game and who has the ability to drop down into the slot if needed. He is a bit undersized for the position, but he makes up for it with his football IQ and his athleticism.3 hours
43.Packers trade up for S/CB Darnell Savage (Rotoworld) Packers traded up to select Maryland S/CB Darnell Savage with the No. 21 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Analysis: Seattle received two fourth-round picks and No. 30 overall in this deal. Savage (5’11/198) made 37 starts in the Terrapins’ secondary, logging nine career tackles for loss with 30 pass breakups and eight interceptions and earning second-team All-Big Ten as a senior. Savage helped himself with 86th-percentile SPARQ results at the Combine, including 4.36 speed and a 39 ½-inch vertical. A late riser as coaches became more involved in the process, Savage was commonly discussed as a cornerback or slot defender conve... (More)3 hours
44.Noah Fant selected No. 20 by Denver Broncos (FantasyPros) The Denver Broncos have selected tight end Noah Fant with the No. 20 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: This is a big time get for the Denver Broncos. They likely could not justify reaching for Fant at 10th overall, but by trading down they were able to secure him as a value. Fant is a receiver in a tight ends body who should excel in an offense with a massive hole at the position. Joe Flacco is known to target his tight ends mercilessly, and should make Fant an instant fantasy star.3 hours
45.Broncos take TE Noah Fant at No. 20 over... (Rotoworld) Broncos selected Iowa TE Noah Fant with the No. 20 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Denver traded down with the Steelers from No. 10 to here at 20, picking up the 52nd pick in the draft and a 2020 third-rounder. Fant (6’4/249) and T.J. Hockenson formed one of the top tight end tandems in NCAA history, the former setting an Iowa record in TDs (19) at the position despite going pro early. Fant was a consensus 2018 first-team B1G pick and finished his career with 78 receptions for 1,083 yards, averaging 13.9 yards per catch. An athletic phenom, Fant destroyed the forty (4.50), vertical (39 ½"), and three cone (6.8... (More)3 hours
46.Jeffery Simmons selected No. 19 by Tennessee Titans (FantasyPros) The Tennessee Titans have selected former Mississippi State DT Jeffery Simmons with the No. 19 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: The Titans decided to take a chance on Simmons based on his incredible talent, despite some red flags. He was videotaped assaulting a woman in 2016, and he tore his ACL in February. Simmons is unlikely to play in 2019, but Tennessee clearly has faith in his longterm value.3 hours
47.Titans select ACL'd Jeffery Simmons at N... (Rotoworld) Titans selected Mississippi State DT Jeffery Simmons with the No. 19 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Simmons (6’4/301) was a projected top-15 pick before tearing his ACL training for the Combine. A five-star high school recruit, Simmons made 28 starts in three seasons for the Bulldogs, tallying 32.5 TFLs, seven sacks, and five forced fumbles on the same front as Montez Sweat. SEC coaches voted Simmons first-team all-conference in each of his final two seasons. In 2017, however, video surfaced of Simmons striking a woman multiple times as a high school senior, and he served a one-game suspension after pleading no cont... (More)3 hours
48.Garrett Bradbury selected No. 18 by Minnesota Vikings (FantasyPros) The Minnesota Vikings have selected center Garrett Bradbury with the No. 18 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Minnesota desperately needed help on the offensive line. Kirk Cousins was pressured 39% of the time last season, which was the fifth highest rate in the league. Bradbury will surely help Minnesota's run and pass blocking this season. This is a Super Bowl contending roster outside of offensive line right now so it's good to see the Vikings addressing that need.3 hours
49.Vikings add much-need OL help with Bradb... (Rotoworld) Vikings selected N.C. State C Garrett Bradbury with the No. 18 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Minnesota needs immediate help along the offensive line, and Bradbury should be able to offer just that. Bradbury (6’3/306) was recruited to NC State to play tight end, started at guard as a sophomore and junior, then won the 2018 Rimington Trophy as the nation’s top center. Although Bradbury is limited to the interior by 31 ¾-inch arms, he combines big, heavy hands (10 ½") with 90th-percentile SPARQ athleticism and strength to neutralize even his most-powerful opponents.

50.'Hog molly': Giants draft Dexter Lawrenc... (Rotoworld) Giants selected Clemson DT Dexter Lawrence with the No. 17 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Lawrence (6’5/342) turned pro as a true junior after making 36 starts on the Tigers’ line, logging 20 career TFLs with 11 sacks. Only teammate Christian Wilkins rang up more QB pressures than Lawrence among ACC interior defensive linemen last year, and Lawrence earned first-team All-American via the NCAA coaches’ vote. A colossal presence with 34 ¾-inch arms, Lawrence offers Haloti Ngata-range upside with rare foot quickness, run-clogging, and pocket-collapsing ability for such a massive man. He's a classic "hog molly&... (More)3 hours
51.Dexter Lawrence selected by New York Giants at 17th overall (FantasyPros) With the 17th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the New York Giants selected Clemson defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence. Analysis: Lawrence is a 342-pound defensive tackle who was frequently double-teamed while at Clemson. While he is not known for his quickness, he is a load to move in the run game and has the strength to collapse the pocket. With the Giants needing a number of pieces as they attempt to rebuild their defense and continue to their switch to a 3-4 front, Lawrence is an ideal DT who can play over the center.3 hours
52.Brian Burns selected No. 16 by Carolina Panthers (FantasyPros) The Carolina Panthers have selected defensive end Brian Burns with the No. 16 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: The Carolina Panthers have addressed their need on the edge. Brian Burns is an explosive speed rusher who quieted size concerns by weighing in 20 lbs., heavier than expected at the NFL Combine. Burns has great closing speed as evidenced by his 67 pressures in 2018, a mark that placed him third among defensive ends.3 hours
53.Panthers take DE Brian Burns at 16th ove... (Rotoworld) Panthers selected Florida State DE Brian Burns with the No. 16 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Burns (6’5/249) turned pro after making 25 starts on the Seminoles’ defensive line, amassing 39.5 career TFLs with 24 sacks and seven forced fumbles. He earned first-team All-ACC in 2018 and was credited with the nation’s third-most QB pressures (66) by PFF College. Burns showcased freaky athleticism in Indy with 4.53 speed and a 94th-percentile SPARQ score. Although Burns’ run defense and play strength are obvious weaknesses on tape, Burns’ vicious initial step and ability to run the arc give him a sky-high ceiling as ... (More)3 hours
54.Dwayne Haskins selected No. 15 by Washington Redskins (FantasyPros) The Washington Redskins have selected former Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins with the 15th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Shockingly, the Redskins did not have to trade up to snag their future franchise QB, and the team has got to be thrilled to get Haskins at such a bargain. In his final year at Ohio State, Haskins threw for 4,831 yards and an incredible 50/8 TD/INT split while completing 70.0 percent of his passes. It is highly unlikely Alex Smith plays this season, and Haskins could push Case Keenum for the starting job.3 hours
55.Redskins get their guy, take Haskins at ... (Rotoworld) Redskins selected Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins with the No. 15 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: A telegraphed ownership pick, Haskins (6’3/231) started for only one year in Columbus, succeeding J.T. Barrett to engineer a 13-1 record with a 69.8% completion rate at 9.14 yards per attempt and a sparkling 50:8 TD-INT ratio with four more rushing scores. He earned 2018 Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, only to finish third in Heisman voting behind Kyler Murray and Tua Tagovailoa. Despite Stephen A. Smith’s claims to the contrary, Haskins is a non-running, pure pocket passer with sluggish 5.04 "speed" and a ... (More)3 hours
56.Chris Lindstrom selected No. 14 by Atlanta Falcons (FantasyPros) The Atlanta Falcons have selected OL Chris Lindstrom with the No. 14 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: As a senior for Boston College Lindstrom allowed zero sacks and just three quarterback hurries. He also registered elite NFL combine results (4.91 forty and 25 bench press reps) and will help protect Matt Ryan in Atlanta for the foreseeable future.3 hours
57.Falcons go guard at 14, add Chris Lindst... (Rotoworld) Falcons selected Boston College OG Chris Lindstrom with the No. 14 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Atlanta added Jamon Brown and James Carpenter to their offensive line room during free agency, so it is a bit surprising they went guard instead of addressing the defensive side of the ball. That is not a shot against Lindstrom, however. Lindstrom (6’4/308) made 48 career starts on the B.C. offensive line – the majority at right guard – and earned 2018 first-team All-ACC after allowing zero sacks and only three QB hurries. Lindstrom blew up the Combine, finishing second among offensive linemen in SPARQ score (96th per... (More)3 hours
58.Dolphins take Christian Wilkins at 13th ... (Rotoworld) Dolphins selected Clemson DT Christian Wilkins with the No. 13 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Analysis: Wilkins (6’3/315) made 45 starts at Clemson, tallying 41 TFLs with 16 sacks while seeing action at both tackle and end and earning the 2018 William Campbell Trophy, equivalent to the academic Heisman. PFF College credited Wilkins with 47 QB pressures – most among ACC interior linemen last season – and Wilkins’ 16 career passes defensed led all draft-eligible DLs and EDGE prospects. Turning 24 in December, Wilkins is a bit old for a rookie, however, and his 47th-percentile SPARQ results make it fair to suggest Wilkins has... (More)3 hours
59.Christian Wilkins goes to Miami Dolphins at No. 13 (FantasyPros) With the 13th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins selected Clemson DT Christian Wilkins. Analysis: Wilkins is one of a number of Clemson defensive lineman expected to go early in this draft, with fellow interior lineman Dexter Lawrence expected to go and defense end Clelin Ferrell going fourth overall to the Oakland Raiders. At 6-foot-3, 315 pounds, Wilkins has ideal size for the position, and his quickness at the point of attack is considered to be his strength.3 hours
60.49ers have no plans to trade Robbie Goul... (Rotoworld) 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said there are no plans to trade franchise-tagged K Robbie Gould. Analysis: Gould demanded a trade earlier this week. The sides aren't close on a new deal, but the 49ers look set on keeping him around for at least one more season. Despite being one of the top kickers the last two years, Gould doesn't have much of a trade market.3 hours
61.Rashan Gary selected No. 12 by Green Bay Packers (FantasyPros) The Green Bay Packers have selected DT/DE Rashan Gary with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: The Packers hit a home run with this pick. Rashan Gary is one of the most talented players in this entire draft class. He recorded the best 40 time ever for someone 275+ lbs, and tested as an elite athlete at the NFL Combine. Gary can play anywhere on the defensive line, an ability the Packers are sure to use to their advantage. Gary has immense talent and should become a terror when his motor is running hot.4 hours
62.Packers take DL Rashan Gary at No. 12 ov... (Rotoworld) Packers selected Michigan DL Rashan Gary with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Gary (6’4/277) turned pro after making 21 starts for the Wolverines, underwhelming as 2016’s No. 1 overall high school recruit with 10.5 career sacks and 24 tackles for loss but still earning first-team All-Big Ten from the conference’s coaches as a sophomore and junior. A known athletic freak, Gary predictably destroyed the Combine with 4.58 speed and 96th-percentile SPARQ results but bombed the Wonderlic Test (9). A boom-bust prospect whose production never matched his measurables, Gary must expand his pass-rush repertoire be... (More)4 hours
63.Jonah Williams selected No. 11 by Cincinnati Bengals (FantasyPros) The Cincinnati Bengals have selected former Alabama offensive lineman Jonah Williams with the 11th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Williams is one of the best blockers in this year's draft, and he fills a desperate need for a poor Bengals' offensive line. He brings durability and versatility to the NFL, as he didn't miss any of his 44 games with Alabama in three years of action and can play on both sides of the offensive line. Amazingly, he didn't give up a single sack in 2018.4 hours
64.Bengals take OT Williams at No. 11 overa... (Rotoworld) Bengals selected Alabama OT Jonah Williams with the No. 11 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Williams (6’5/302) started every game of his three-year Alabama career (29 starts at left tackle, 15 at right tackle) and went pro after earning unanimous first-team All-American and the 2018 Jacobs Trophy as the SEC’s top offensive lineman. Williams landed PFF College’s No. 1 run-blocking grade in the country last season and allowed zero sacks with only three QB pressures. Also intelligent with a 39 Wonderlic score, Williams’ biggest drawback is his 17th-percentile athleticism, a limitation Williams overcame with pro-ready... (More)4 hours
65.Lynch: SF not trying to trade Solomon Th... (Rotoworld) Niners GM John Lynch said the team is not trying to trade DL Solomon Thomas. Analysis: Lynch added that Thomas would "absolutely" be with the team in 2019, too. Assuming Lynch holds true to his word, the Niners are slated to utilize Thomas in the trenches with surrounding former first-rounders Arik Armstead, DeForest Buckner, and No. 2 overall pick Nick Bosa. Thomas has notched just four sacks in the last two years with San Francisco.4 hours
66.Steelers trade up for Michigan LB Devin ... (Rotoworld) Steelers traded up with the Broncos to select Michigan LB Devin Bush with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.4 hours
67.Devin Bush selected No. 10 by Pittsburgh Steelers (FantasyPros) The Pittsburgh Steelers have selected LB Devin Bush with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft after acquiring the pick from the Denver Broncos. Analysis: In exchange for the 10th Pick, Pittsburgh is sending Denver picks 20, 52, and a 2020 third-rounder. Bush is a special linebacker prospect that has the ability to make plays both in the pass and run games. The former Michigan product will help replace Ryan Shazier in the middle of the Steelers' defense.4 hours
68.Ed Oliver goes to Buffalo Bills at No. 9 overall (FantasyPros) With the number nine overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills selected defensive tackle Ed Oliver. Analysis: Oliver is a true three-down defensive tackle with pass-rushing ability who should step in and start right away for the rebuilding and retooling Bills. He is a bit undersized but makes up for it with excellent athletic ability. While he is not as reliable against the run as he is rushing the passer, he should have plenty of early success in today's NFL.4 hours
69.Ed Oliver falls into Bills lap at 9th ov... (Rotoworld) Bills selected Houston DT Ed Oliver with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Oliver (6’2/281) turned pro as true junior after a prolific three-year stint at Houston, earning the 2017 Outland Trophy as college football’s top interior defensive lineman as a sophomore and All-American recognition in all three seasons. All told, Oliver tallied 54 career TFLs, 13.5 sacks, and six forced fumbles despite playing out of position at nose tackle. A true freak athlete, Oliver predictably shredded pre-draft workouts with a 4.73 forty, running back-like 4.22 short shuttle, and 10-foot broad jump, showing incredible explosi... (More)4 hours
70.T.J. Hockenson selected No. 8 by Detroit Lions (FantasyPros) The Detroit Lions have selected tight end T.J. Hockenson with the No. 8 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: T.J. Hockenson is the most complete tight end prospect in years and represents a huge get for Matthew Stafford and the Lions. He is an excellent receiver, and projects as an immediate starter. Hockenson should be considered a TE1 candidate.4 hours
71.Lions fill large TE need with Hockenson ... (Rotoworld) Lions selected Iowa TE T.J. Hockenson with the No. 8 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Hockenson (6’5/251) went pro after earning the 2018 Mackey Award as a redshirt sophomore, finishing what amounted to a two-year career with 73/1,080/9 (14.8 YPR) receiving working in tandem with Noah Fant. In 2018, 35 of Hockenson’s 49 catches went for first downs or touchdowns (71.4%). Surer handed and a superior in-line blocker to his Iowa teammate, Hockenson also showed high-end athleticism by testing in the 88 th -SPARQ percentile with a 4.7-flat forty, 37.5-inch vertical, and 7.02 three-cone time in Indy. This draft’s most wel... (More)4 hours
72.Josh Allen selected No. 7 by Jacksonville Jaguars (FantasyPros) The Jacksonville Jaguars have selected former Kentucky OLB Josh Allen with the seventh pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Allen is one of the best edge rushers in this year's draft class, and he was widely considered to be a top-5 talent. The Jaguars have more pressing needs (specifically on the offensive line and in the receiving game), but Allen was the best available pick and a steal at No. 7.4 hours
73.Jags make Josh Allen No. 7 overall pick (Rotoworld) Jaguars selected Kentucky DE Josh Allen with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Allen (6’5/262) made 35 starts at outside-rush linebacker in the Wildcats’ 3-4 -- he will be playing in a 4-3 in Jacksonville -- never missing a game in his college career en route to a school-record 31.5 sacks among 41 tackles for loss with a school-record-tying 11 forced fumbles. In addition to 17 sacks as a senior – second most in the nation -- Allen led all SEC edge defenders in QB pressures (57) after adding 20 pounds of muscle last offseason and expanding his pass-rush moves. A high school wide receiver who wins with leng... (More)4 hours
74.Honorary Manning: Giants take Daniel Jon... (Rotoworld) Giants selected Duke QB Daniel Jones with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: It certainly makes sense for the Giants to add a quarterback at No. 6, but picking this one this high is another questionable decision in an offseason full of them. Jones (6’5/221) turned pro after making 36 starts for David Cutcliffe’s Blue Devils, managing a 17-19 career record as a 59.9% passer at just 6.4 yards per attempt with a 52:29 TD-to-INT ratio. Jones did show plus mobility with 17 career rushing TDs and a 4.81 forty in Indy, also acing the Wonderlic Test (37). Jones’ poor supporting cast was partly to blame for his poor ... (More)4 hours
75.Daniel Jones selected No. 6 by New York Giants (FantasyPros) The New York Giants have selected quarterback Daniel Jones with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: This is a surprise. Not only did the Giants theoretically reach here, but they likely could've traded down and gotten him several picks later. Of course, Giants GM Dave Gettleman has famously never traded down before. Jones is close with Eli Manning so there likely won't be much animosity here. Jones is now the quarterback of the future for the Odell Beckham-less Giants.4 hours
76.Bucs make LSU LB Devin White No. 5 pick (Rotoworld) Bucs selected LSU LB Devin White with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: White (6’0/237) earned the 2018 Butkus Trophy as college football’s top linebacker, collecting first-team All-SEC for the second straight season. Over three years in Baton Rouge, White tallied 8.5 sacks and four forced fumbles as a 25-game starter. White solidified his stock at the Combine by testing in the 94th percentile with 4.42 speed. A standout in pass coverage with sideline-to-sideline playmaking ability, White offers every-down impact potential in the C.J. Mosley mold. White should be a big upgrade on overrated free agent depart... (More)4 hours
77.Devin White selected by Tampa Bay Buccaneers at No. 5 overall (FantasyPros) With the number five overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected LSU linebacker Devin White. Analysis: With the Raiders stunning everyone and taking Clemson defensive end Clelin Ferrell with the fourth overall pick, the Bucs were in an interesting position with Josh Allen, Ed Oliver, and Devin White still available. There were rumors that they might be looking to trade back with a team looking to move up for a quarterback, but they ultimately went with Devin White, a three-down linebacker who should instantly step in and help their defense.4 hours
78.Report: Redskins 'in the hunt' for Josh ... (Rotoworld) NBC Sports Washington's J.P. Finlay reports the Redskins "will be in the hunt" to trade for Josh Rosen.4 hours
79.Clelin Ferrell selected No. 4 by Oakland Raiders (FantasyPros) The Oakland Raiders have selected defensive end Clelin Ferrell with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: In a surprise move, the Oakland Raiders selected Clelin Ferrell at fourth overall. While he is one of the best edge rushers in the draft, he was not on the radar this high for most. Ferrell fills an glaring need for the Raiders and projects as an immediate starter. He has enough talent to become an IDP force as a rookie.4 hours
80.Raiders nab DE Ferrell at No. 4 overall ... (Rotoworld) Raiders selected Clemson DE Clelin Ferrell with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: This is the first of three first-round picks for the Raiders on Thursday. Ferrell (6’4/264) turned pro as a redshirt junior after registering 50 career TFLs with 27 sacks and five forced fumbles across 44 starts, earning 2018’s ACC Defensive Player of the Year and Ted Hendricks Award as the nation’s top defensive end. Ferrell’s pre-draft workouts were limited by a nagging turf toe injury, but his tape reveals a complete defensive end who stuffs the run and disrupts the pass with a quick get-off step, active hands, violent bul... (More)4 hours
81.Quinnen Williams selected No. 3 by New York Jets (FantasyPros) Former Alabama DT Quinnen Williams has been selected third overall by the New York Jets in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Williams wreaked havoc on opposing offenses while playing for the Crimson Tide, and he should make an immediate impact on the Jets' defensive line. Even though he plays on the interior, he has a high motor, elite speed, and an uncanny ability to get into the backfield.5 hours
82.Jets stay put, make DT Williams No. 3 pi... (Rotoworld) Jets selected Alabama DT Quinnen Williams with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Williams (6’3/303) turned pro as a redshirt sophomore after logging 25 career tackles for loss and nine sacks at nose tackle in Nick Saban’s 3-4. Despite his block-occupying duties, PFF credited Williams with 55 QB pressures in 2018, which led all SEC interior defensive linemen. Williams shredded the Combine with 83rd-percentile SPARQ results and 4.83 speed, otherworldly for a 303-pound human. Better suited for three-technique tackle in the pros, Williams’ game is reminiscent of Gerald McCoy as a slippery and explosive inside ... (More)5 hours
83.49ers add Nick Bosa with No. 2 overall p... (Rotoworld) 49ers selected Ohio State DE Nick Bosa with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Despite spending three first-round picks in the last four years along the defensive line and trading for Dee Ford, the 49ers still had questions at pass rusher. At least on paper, Bosa looks like the answer. The 6-foot-4, 266-pound pass rusher was the 2017 Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year and first-team All-American as a sophomore before missing all but three games as a 2018 junior with a core muscle injury that required surgery. Joey’s brother left school with 29 career tackles for loss, 18 sacks, and two forced fumbles. Healt... (More)5 hours
84.Nick Bosa selected No. 2 by San Francisco 49ers (FantasyPros) The San Francisco 49ers have selected defensive lineman Nick Bosa with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Defensive line was a huge need for the 49ers this draft after the 2018 team registered the eighth-fewest sacks in the league. The Niners also acquired Dee Ford this off-season , which means last year's weakness could potentially become a strength. The former Ohio State Buckeye is the brother of Chargers defensive lineman Joey Bosa.5 hours
85.Heisman winner Kyler Murray goes 1st to ... (Rotoworld) Cardinals selected Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Analysis: Murray (5’10/207) turned down the Oakland A’s after Billy Beane’s team made him the No. 9 overall pick in last year’s MLB draft, following his heart to the NFL after earning the 2018 Heisman Trophy by completing 69% of his passes at an absurd 11.6 yards per attempt with a 42:7 TD-INT ratio and 12 additional rushing scores as Baker Mayfield’s successor. Despite his smallish build, only five of Murray’s 2018 passes were batted down, and he generates stunning ball velocity with a lightning-quick release and multi-arm-angle re... (More)5 hours
86.Disturbing audio of Tyreek Hill released (FantasyPros) New and disturbing audio of Tyreek Hill discussing his son's broken arm has been released. Analysis: Just one day removed from learning that the District Attorney would not file charges against Hill in a "domestic dispute," a disturbing audio recording has been released of Tyreek Hill and his fiancée discussing their son's broken arm. His fiancée asks Hill why his son says "daddy did it." Hill also describes his disciplinary methods as punching his son in the chest and using a belt. When pressed by his fiancée, he tells her "you need to be terrified of me." The DA has made it clear that the investigation could be reopened wi... (More)5 hours
87.Kyler Murray drafted first overall by Arizona Cardinals in 2019 NFL Draft (FantasyPros) The Arizona Cardinals drafted Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray with the first overall pick in the 2019 draft. Analysis: Murray goes to the Cardinals just one year after they drafted Josh Rosen. Rosen is now almost certain to be traded at some point during the draft, possibly even before the first round is over. The Cardinals and their new coaching staff have a lot of work to do in order to rebuild (they drafted first overall for a reason) their roster, but Murray will step right in and have David Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, and Christian Kirk as playmakers on the offensive side of the ball.5 hours
88.Chris Long to PHI: Plan like I won't be ... (Rotoworld) NJ.com's Zack Rosenblatt reports Eagles DE Chris Long told the front office to "plan like I won't be back." Analysis: "[Football is] too hard on my body, my family, on everyone else to kind of go through it for a role that’s far from perfect," Long said on the Philadelphia Enquirer's Eagles podcast. "I told [the team] this maybe a month ago: 'Hey, listen, plan like I’m not going to be back." The Eagles want Long to take a pay cut prior to his $2 million roster bonus hitting his bank account in May, but the back-to-back Super Bowl champ is contemplating ret... (More)5 hours
89.No deal expected for Chris Harris on Thu... (Rotoworld) 9News' Mike Klis reports no deal for Broncos CB Chris Harris is expected on Thursday. Analysis: There's apparently still uncertainty among the front office whether Harris will even be traded. GM John Elway has confirmed multiple times throughout the offseason the team's plans to negotiate an extension with Harris, but the soon-to-be 30-year-old All-Pro has remained steadfast in wanting to see the actual fruit from his body of work. It's likely Harris skips mandatory minicamp if a deal isn't worked out soon. Don't sleep on Harris being traded Friday morning to a CB-needy team that went i... (More)5 hours

Analysis: Hughes also confirms the Bills have also reached out about the No. 3 pick. Buffalo's target is believed to be Quinnen Williams. It is uncertain who the Raiders might be targeting.7 hours
92.Bucky Hodges: Cut loose ahead of draft (RotoWire) Hodges was waived by the Steelers on Thursday. Analysis: Hodges spent the 2018 season on the Steelers' practice squad and re-upped on a reserve/future contract in January, but he's now being let go just hours before the start of the 2019 NFL Draft. The 2017 sixth-rounder will presumably try and mix in with the incoming class of undrafted free agents as teams try to fill out their 90-man rosters ahead of training camp.7 hours
93.Report: Cards have discussed three playe... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Mike Silver reports the Cardinals have "had discussions today" with Kyler Murray, Nick Bosa and Quinnen Williams' player reps. Analysis: Per Silver, the Cardinals are "still keeping their plans close to the vest." Murray has been the longtime favorite, but there has been a little more smoke than usual that the Cardinals' private plans do not match the public reality. We will find out in a little over two hours.7 hours
94.Report: Devin Bush unlikely to fall past... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Michigan LB Devin Bush believes he won't fall past the Bengals at No. 11. Analysis: This could explain where reports that the Steelers and Falcons are entertaining a trade up could be coming from. The Packers at No. 12 also have the need.8 hours
95.Jalen Ramsey: Locked up through 2020 (RotoWire) The Jaguars picked up the fifth-year option on Ramsey's rookie contract, Tad Dickman of the team's official site reports. Analysis: The Jaguars kicked off the offseason program April 15 without Ramsay, who opted to stay away from voluntary workouts and instead continue his training in Nashville. With a deadline of May 3 to pick up the aforementioned option, it was only a matter of time before Jacksonville made the simple decision. Ramsay has back-to-back Pro-Bowl bids under his belt due to superior coverage abilities, including 44 passes defended and nine interceptions through three campaigns.9 hours
96.Quinnen Williams drawing heavy interest from Buffalo Bills (FantasyPros) Former Alabama DT Quinnen Williams has drawn a lot of interest from the Buffalo Bills leading up to the NFL Draft. Analysis: Williams, widely regarded as a top-3 prospect in this year's draft class, could end up a Buffalo Bill. The New York Jets currently own the No. 3 pick in the draft, but they are very willing to trade down. The Bills own the No. 9 pick, and they are reportedly interested in trading up for Williams if he is available. He is not a lock to be available at three, with the Cardinals (No. 1) and 49ers (No. 2) still in play to select the talented defensive lineman.9 hours
97.CLE could trade back into first for Simm... (Rotoworld) CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Browns could trade back into the first round if Mississippi State DT Jeffery Simmons falls. Analysis: It is our second Simmons blurb in two hours. The Miami Herald believes the Dolphins could trade down from No. 13 with a Simmons pick in mind. Simmons is recovering from a torn ACL and has a disturbing off-the-field incident in his past. Browns GM John Dorsey rather infamously pays little attention to such matters.9 hours
98.Ben Roethlisberger: Gets $67.5M guaranteed in new deal (RotoWire) Roethlisberger will be guaranteed $67.5 million through the 2021 season after agreeing Wednesday with the Steelers on a two-year, $68 million contract extension, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Roethlisberger will earn $12 million in salary in 2019 before the extension goes into effect next March at the start of the new league year. Upon putting pen to paper on the deal, Roethlisberger will receive $37.5 million as part of a signing bonus, with another $30 million guaranteed in the event of an injury. The extension essentially ensures that Roethlisberger, who turned 37 in March, will finish his career with the only franchise... (More)9 hours
99.Report: Dolphins could target Jeffery Si... (Rotoworld) The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have had "serious talks" about drafting Mississippi State DT Jeffery Simmons. Analysis: Any move would apparently not come at No. 13 but a trade down. There have been multiple Thursday reports about the Dolphins' interest in moving down. Simmons, who is recovering from a torn ACL and torn meniscus, is likely to miss the entire 2019 season. He also has a disturbing incident of violence against a woman in his past. It would not be surprising were Simmons to fall to day two.9 hours
100.Report: Bills could trade up for DT Will... (Rotoworld) CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Bills could trade up to No. 3 overall with the intention of selecting Alabama DT Quinnen Williams. Analysis: The Jets own the No. 3 pick. La Canfora's report is via "two general managers." Ace beat writer Joe Buscaglia "wouldn't doubt it." The Bills own the No. 9 selection, meaning any move would be extremely expensive. Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane have established an extremely aggressive culture, however. It is something to watch for.9 hours
