E.J. Manuel - QB - Player
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Browns, Bills, and Jets have all expressed interest in trading up into the bottom portion of the first round.
Presumably, these three teams all value a quarterback in the draft, but they don't feel comfortable enough in taking one with their respective top-ten picks. Instead, they would like to wheel and deal to work themselves back into the first round ahead of the Jaguars at pick No. 33. There's a strong chance that all four of Geno Smith, E.J. Manuel, Matt Barkley, and Ryan Nassib are available in the 20-32 range.
Eric Fisher - T - Player
A source with knowledge of the team's plans tells Profootballtalk the Chiefs will select Central Michigan LT Eric Fisher with the No. 1 pick.
This report mercifully avoids the semantics of who's been "informed" of what. There will undoubtedly be more conflicting reports between now and when Commissioner Roger Goodell steps to the podium to announce Kansas City's pick, but the evidence that Fisher will go ahead of Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel has become overwhelming.
Tavon Austin - WR - Player
CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Rams could trade up from No. 16 to No. 13 if the Jets pass on West Virginia WR Tavon Austin at No. 9.
Such a move would get the Rams their man, while keeping the Jets in position to snag an impact player. The Rams would likely have to surrender the No. 46 pick in such a scenario, which would be a steep price to move up just three spots. It would be an impetus to auction off the No. 22 pick to the highest bidder.
