Found April 16, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:

ESPN’s Adam Schefter wrote on his blog that he believes Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden will be taken early in the second round of next week’s draft.

“My sense is that Weeden is going to go at the top of the second round to a team that doesn’t get Tannehill,” said Schefter. ”Maybe Cleveland, Buffalo, Kansas City or Seattle. But somewhere right around that spot. However, there’s always a premium on quarterbacks, and the value of them rises, so Weeden always could sneak into the bottom of the first round. But whether it’s the bottom of the first or the top half of the second, it looks like Weeden before Foles.”

What’s really sad is that if Weeden wasn’t 28 years old, he would easily be taken in the first round and potentially within the top 15 picks. But since he’ll be turning 29 years-old during the first couple months of the season, it puts a limit on his career.

Evans to sign Jaguars

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported today that wide receiver Lee Evans, with the Ravens last season, will sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars tomorrow. That’s great for Evans.
