  • Jags could make another surprise pick at No. 3 (Amari Cooper), triggering run on WRs (Yahoo Sports)

    One AFC personnel man claims he saw the Blake Bortles ruse a year ago, and thinks the Jaguars are primed to stun again.

  • Chiefs could be movers with 10 picks in upcoming draft (The Associated Press)

    The most revealing thing Chiefs general manager John Dorsey said during a 20-minute media session in which he endeavored to say as little as possible was this: He thinks there are about 12 ''impact players'' in this year's draft. Kansas City has the No. 18 pick in the first round. So when you do the math, and consider the Chiefs have 10 selections thanks to an abundance of compensatory picks, there's a good chance Dorsey will pick up his phone Thursday night and try to make a deal - especially if it means ensuring he gets one of those prized players. Perhaps the dozen that the Chargers, choosing a slot ahead of Kansas City, or the Browns, who pick one spot later, are different than the 12 players that Dorsey picks out.

  • Titans' choices: QB, another player or try to trade down (The Associated Press)

    Whatever the Tennessee Titans do with the No. 2 overall selection in the NFL draft will depend on just how much they like quarterback Zach Mettenberger. Because of a 2-14 record in coach Ken Whisenhunt's first season, the Titans are drafting within the top eight picks for the third time since 2006. They took quarterbacks with each of those previous picks, though both Vince Young (No. 3 in 2006) and Jake Locker (eighth overall in 2011) now are retired from the NFL. Still rebuilding, the Titans could draft their third quarterback in 10 years unless Mettenberger has shown them enough starting six games without a win as a rookie to stick with him.

  • Browns enter draft armed with picks, may select quarterback (The Associated Press)

    The Browns have invested heavily into the quarterback position in recent years with scant success. Despite selecting a quarterback in the first round in two of the past three NFL drafts, the Browns could be in the market again to find the franchise leader they've coveted for decades. 12 and 19 and six of the first 115, Cleveland general manager Ray Farmer has the ammunition to maneuver up and down the board. There's even some speculation Farmer will trade his top picks and move up to take Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota, last year's Heisman Trophy winner from Oregon.

  • Mock draft: Jameis Winston to Bucs to start NFL draft (The Associated Press)

    NEW YORK (AP) -- The NFL draft heads to Chicago this year, with the top overall choice in our mock draft not planning to be on hand. No matter: Tampa Bay will already have let its selection know when the crowd in the Windy City gets, uh, wind of the pick.

  • NFL-National Football League roundup (Reuters)

    New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, in the final year of his contract, is not concerned that there has been no progress about an extension. "Nothing has been brought up," Manning told NJ.com before walking in the March of Dimes' March for Babies with his daughter Ava on Sunday in Manhattan. The Giants also have the option of placing the franchise tag on him. Manning could command $18 million to $20 million per season, on par with the five-year, $99 million deal Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger signed last month.
