Jacksonville Jaguars land offensive help in the cover32 Mock Draft 2.0

Last week, the managing editors at cover32 stuck with the draft order as it is currently comprised. That provided a solid foundation for what each NFL team is looking to do in 15 days when they are on the clock. In last week’s mock draft, the Jaguars landed UCF QB Blake Bortles with the third overall pick. The Jaguars are in desperate need of a big-time quarterback, but they can’t...

Sammy Watkins Visiting With The Bills Wednesday

  Ian Rapoport reports that Clemson WR Sammy Watkins is meeting with the Bills in Buffalo on Wednesday. Watkins has previously met with the Rams, Lions and Jaguars. The Bills currently hold the No. 9 overall pick, which means they would almost certainly have to trade up to secure Watkins. Interestingly enough, Watkins grew up a Bills fan, so I’m sure he wouldn’t mind playing...

Bears get their man

In our first mock draft, we had the Bears selecting Northern Illinois safety Jimmie Ward. This was in large part due to players like Aaron Donald, Justin Gilbert and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix coming off the board right before the team picked. In our 2.0 version, the Bears get their man. The Bears would love to see Clinton-Dix fall to them. Due to some trades we simulated through, the unthinkable...

Detroit Lions | Best & Worst Case Scenario for Round 1 of the NFL Draft

The Lions will be a team to watch in the top 10 on possibly moving up to get the guy they want. Detroit hasn’t made it much of a secret for their love for star receiver Sammy Watkins. IF they do stand pat at pick 10 they will still have some options that will fill some big needs on the defensive side of the ball (Clinton-Dix, Dennard, Gilbert, Barr) Below are a few guys I feel...

Rams Rumors: St. Louis to draft a quarterback?

As the St. Louis Rams have a coveted draft situation with three selections in the top 45 picks, many suspect they will target a WR, an OT, and some secondary help.  But the Rams have been showing some interest in a number of QB prospects that project into that range, and their current situation at the position has been questionable ever since their starter Sam Bradford suffered...

Stan McNeal goes one-on-one with Rams GM Les Snead to talk NFL Draft

ST. LOUIS -- This usually would be the busiest week of the year for Les Snead. But because the 2014 NFL Draft won't begin until May 8 -- 17 days and counting -- Monday was a meeting-free day for the Rams GM. He even had a few minutes to meet in his office at Rams Park with Fox Sports Midwest to talk about what the Rams might do with their 12 picks, which include the second and...

Would it be crazy to for Texans to draft Sammy Watkins?

The Texans have the unenviable task of picking first in this year's NFL Draft. There are several players who you could argue are worthy of picking No. 1 overall. The most rumored name is South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney who possesses freakish athleticism and pairing him JJ Watt would be an enticing option for the Texans.   If they are scared off by reports of his...

Browns after Sammy Watkins, Teddy Bridgewater and Carlos Hyde

During this NFL offseason, the Cleveland Browns have completely revitalized their organization at the top with a new GM in Ray Farmer and and a new head coach in Mike Pettine. But now it’s time to focus on revitalizing the team on the field, where it matters most, and that process could be in full swing next month in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Scouting for the Cleveland Browns – where will they find the real value in the NFL Draft?

The Cleveland Browns enter the 2014 NFL Draft with 10 picks, and GM Ray Farmer has been hard at work for the last few months scouting players in a bid to make sure that every one of them makes the Browns stronger. Over 1000 players have declared for the draft, but only 256 of them will hear their name called over the 3 days. Of those, less than 100 will probably start a game this...

Rams to hold private workout for Watkins

Just a few weeks ago at the NFL owners meetings, coach Jeff Fisher sounded like the Rams might pass on Sammy Watkins. But the Rams sure are taking a long look at the star wide receiver from Clemson. Widely considered the best wideout in the draft, Watkins paid a pre-draft visit to Rams Park on Tuesday, meeting with a variety of coaches and team officials. It's against league...

Rams Would Make A Huge Mistake By Passing Up Sammy Watkins

I've said it once, I'll say it again. The Rams need to find a way to get their hands on Sammy Watkins. Watkins is a pure receiver, something the Rams desperately need. Tavon Austin is an amazing football player, but the Rams are asking him to be the next Wes Welker, which isn’t going to happen. He's elusive and a great returner, but he's not going to give you a...

The Detroit Lions want Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins according to an ESPN report, but there’s no chance Watkins falls to the 10th pick. In order to land the Clemson wide out, Detroit would have to trade up in the draft, presumably to the 2nd or 3rd pick, to select him.
