Jaguars move up one spot to select Cam Robinson at 34th Overall

The Jacksonville Jaguars traded up to select Alabama offensive tackle Cam Robinson with the 34th overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft. What It Means: The Seahawks traded down for the third time in this draft, nabbing the 187th overall pick in exchange for moving down one spot. Robinson -- who stands 6’6" and 322 pounds -- started 43 games in three years with the Crimson Tide, earning the 2016 Outland Trophy as the nation’s top offensive lineman, but tested pretty poorly at the Combine. All too often a whiffer in pass protection, Robinson is likely best suited for guard or right...

49ers shopping Vance McDonald on Day 2 of draft

The San Francisco 49ers are shopping tight end Vance McDonald. What It Means: A carryover from ex-general manager Trent Baalke, McDonald is one season into a five-year, $35 million extension. There's unlikely to be any interest in him as a middling veteran coming off injury. The 49ers owe McDonald $5.8 million guaranteed over the next two seasons. Among the 43 tight ends to see at least 30 targets in 2016, McDonald's 0.79 Reception Net Expected Points per target were eighth-most. Source: Rotoworld.com

Washington shopping Matt Jones for Day 3 pick

Washington is shopping running back Matt Jones, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. What It Means: Jones has fallen completely out of favor in DC, tumbling to fourth on the depth chart behind Rob Kelley and Mack Brown -- both went undrafted -- and third-down back Chris Thompson. Head coach Jay Gruden recently "didn't have much good to say about" Jones, who has put the ball on the ground with fumbles far too often and was benched midseason 2016. Washington would likely take a seventh-rounder for Jones. On 99 rushes in 2016, Jones racked up -0.03 Rushing Net Expected Points per...

Doug Martin's impressive spring encouraged Buccaneers to pass on running back

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers passed on a running back at 19th overall partly because Doug Martin has been "the most impressive player thus far" at offseason workouts, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. What It Means: Martin is reportedly in great shape following his time in rehab. He's still suspended for the first three games of the year, and the Bucs could easily address the running back spot on Friday evening. Taking tight end O.J. Howard at 19th overall likely had more to do with an elite talent falling into their lap than any faith in Martin. Among the 42 running backs with...

Tom Savage should lead the charge for Texans into 2017

Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage is "our starter," even after the team traded up to take rookie Deshaun Watson at 12th overall, head coach Bill O'Brien said. What It Means: "As a rookie quarterback it's a big jump," O’Brien said. "Tom is our starter and Deshaun will come in and he's going to work hard and we're going to teach him and feed him a lot of information and he'll work at it." Savage will likely open the summer atop the depth chart and possibly get the nod in Week 1, but his leash is going to be very short. Savage's -0.04 Passing Net Expected Points per drop...

Alex Smith still starting for Chiefs in 2017

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith received head coach Andy Reid backing once again as the 2017 starting quarterback following the selection of rookie Patrick Mahomes. What It Means: The Chiefs have spent much of the offseason propping up Smith, but on Thursday they traded three premium picks to come up 17 spots and take Mahomes. Reid acknowledged that Mahomes isn't ready, and Smith will be the starter for the immediate future. "I don’t worry about Alex on this," Reid said. "Alex knows we trust him. Alex is the starting quarterback. Nothing is going to change there.... He...

Saints not ruling out Day 2 trade for Patriots' Malcolm Butler

The New Orleans Saints are considering making a trade on Friday night for a veteran cornerback. What It Means: Head coach Sean Payton refused to rule out a trade for New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler or Los Angeles Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson. This comes less than 24 hours after the Saints used the 11th overall pick on Marshon Lattimore. Acquiring Butler seemed inevitable for New Orleans at one point, but talks have broken down and Butler hurt his chances of being traded by waiting too long to sign his restricted free agent tender. Either Butler or Johnson...

Patriots refused Browns' last-ditch attempt to trade for Jimmy Garoppolo

The Cleveland Browns made a last-ditch effort to acquire New England Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on Thursday night but were again rebuffed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. What It Means: Nobody has pushed harder for a Garoppolo trade than the Browns, but the Patriots continue to stonewall them. If franchise passer Tom Brady really plans on playing for another three or four years, it makes little sense to stash Garoppolo, who is sure to leave in free agency next offseason. The Browns are in dire need of a franchise quarterback but passed up both Mitchell Trubisky at 1 and...

Gary Barnidge cut by Browns

The Cleveland Browns released tight end Gary Barnidge. What It Means: The Browns selected Miami tight end David Njoku with the 29th overall pick on Thursday, sealing Barnidge's fate. Barnidge broke out at age 29 in 2015, leading Cleveland with 1,043 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. His production tailed off dramatically in 2016, but a lot of that might have been due to Cleveland's quarterback issues. Barnidge's 0.68 Reception Net Expected Points per target in 2016 was 17th-best among the 43 tight ends to top 30 targets that year. Source: Rotoworld.com
