Default ONE DAY TO GO -- NFL DRAFT RUMORS

Hello.

Just thought we should have a thread dedicated to rumors, whether they are Broncos related or not in regards to the draft. There was an excellent chat with former scout Dave Thomas on CHI's Scout.com page. I have provided some of the information in those chats here regarding team interest in players, trades, etc.

4/22/2014 -- Via Scout.com
  • The Chicago Bears are desperately hoping Aaron Donald (DT) is there when they select in the first round. They also happen to like Vanderbilt (S) Kenny Ladler Raijon Neal (RB) is a late-round sleeper for them.
  • The Vikings are more likely to take a defender than a QB in round one. Dennard (CB) could be tops on their board. According to Dave Thomas, Dennard is only one of 3 CB's in history to allow ~ less than 1 yard per pass attempt -- joining Jim Marsallis and Deion Sanders. Best DB prospect in Thomas eyes (or exciting) since Brian Dawkins. The Vikings also are interested in Bitonio and Swanson as OL prospects, and really love Brandon Linder -- as do the Packers.
  • Pittsburgh is infatuated with two players, Dennard (CB) and Beckham, Jr. (WR) -- Dennard is working out with Ike Taylor, and Beckham, Jr. reminds them of Randel El's play ability and versatility, but with Hines Ward's toughness. Expect Beckham to be their guy.
  • Michael Schofield could go a lot higher than people might think, viewed as one of the best, if not best RT in the whole draft.
  • Deone Bucannon to the Patriots at the end of round one is getting high consideration. Team also likes Jordan Matthews and Tom Savage.
  • The New York Jets are high on Keith McGill.
  • Eagles and Chiefs are doing their diligence on Calvin Pryor.
  • Zack Martin a possibility for San Diego.
  • Rashede Hageman is a "flake."
  • Bishop Sankey -- best RB in draft.
  • Redskins like Borland or the OT Koijuano if he falls.
  • Bengals are interested in Verrett.
  • 49ers could make a huge move up, have the picks to do it -- like Beckham, Jr. | Atlanta likely to try and get #2.

I can definitely see this. This team badly needs rejuvenation on Defense and if that is Clowney or Mack that would improve them greatly.


and, wtf??

Rashede Hageman is a "flake."


say it aint sooooooo. This is the first I have heard of this. Of course I am partial to the man

Hageman's story is quite the personal battle. I've read numerous articles where people question his character and his ability to mentally handle it in the NFL. He has had a really checkered past.

Ya, he is a foster kid, but was adopted into a white family. Definitely has anger issues that could cause problems.

But he has grown a lot and WANTED to finish school. I was very impressed with this and shows his colors and how he has grown.

Although he does say he is a thug on the inside (and does so consistently) sooooo maybe with the money comes mo problems.

Atl has too many holes to trade up imo.

Well you have to think that if he did have his head on straight and was fully committed to football he'd have dominated much more consistently.

'Flake' is a strange word to choose, though.

I think Atlanta and Detroit both want whichever falls to #2 of Clowney and Mack. Could have a situation where both Houston and St. Louis trade down depending on asking price. If they just want a 2nd round this year and a 3rd next year along with swapping 1sts, it probably gets done. If Clowney and Mack are gone by #3, I have no idea if Jacksonville will take Watkins or Robinson/Matthews.

Agreed, J ville is such a wild card. I could see them taking a literally ANYONE they view as the BPA, or a QB.

When I finally got around to watching Dennard last week, I was amazed. He's like a slightly slower version of Revis. Some of the best ability to stay in the WR's hip pocket and strip the ball a it arrives, that I've ever seen.

Champ, in his prime, was better...but Dennard looks like the real deal.

NFC Executive: Teddy Bridgewater is a "Fourth-Round Guy"

Updated April 18, 2014
By Charlie Campbell - @draftcampbell

Over the final months leading up to the 2014 NFL Draft, there have been a lot of reports of Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater falling lower than expected on draft day. They've become more commonplace with each passing week.

This isn't news to teams though. They've told us that the national media is simply catching up, and that it has overrated Bridgewater during his collegiate career and throughout the draft process.

We've reached out to many teams about Bridgewater, and all have been down on him. Perhaps the most glaring response we've heard came from an executive with an NFC playoff team that has no need for a starting quarterback. They have their franchise signal-caller, but they could use a reserve, so we asked this executive his thoughts on some quarterbacks, including Bridgewater.

The NFC executive said that he thought Bridgewater was a "fourth-round guy" and will fall out of the first round. He said that there isn't anything exceptional about Bridgewater's skill set, as he doesn't have an elite arm, size or mobility. Because of that, he felt that Bridgewater is a fourth-round talent.

Another scouting director picking in the top 20 that could consider a quarterback told us that his team never had Bridgewater as a first-round pick. They said he's carried a second-round grade throughout the process. They still have him as a second-round pick after his much-maligned pro day.

Sources from three teams in the top 10 have told us that they have Blake Bortles and Derek Carr graded ahead of Bridgewater. One team also has A.J. McCarron rated ahead of Bridgewater.

Six different franchises, including those three in the top 10, have said they believe that Bridgewater is going to fall much lower than expected on draft day and could easily drop out of the first round because teams aren't grading him as a first-round pick.

The thing that will be really bad is if the rumors of teams seeing him as a 3rd-4th round pick are true and he is there on day 3

No way he lasts to the fourth. People will perceive value and jump late in round 2 and blow a pick on a 4th round talent. It's the QB desperation mentality.

True. Just the evil instigator side of me that would love to see that happen. I remember the Brady Quinn draft just laughing my ass off as pick after pick happened and he got sadder and sadder. After pick 10 some friends and I turned his pain into a drinking game. Every time ESPN panned to him waiting to be picked we would do a shot. The first one of us to drop didn't make it out of the teens they showed him so much. Needless to say the game ended before he was selected.

Plus side of the drinking game, I was so hammered by the time we were on the clock I was incapable of even realizing we had **** away our pick on Jarvis Moss until the next day.
