      22 prospects attending 2017 NFL Draft

      The NFL will host the scouting combine's fastest man, a two-time Heisman Trophy finalist and the draft's most heralded running back at the 2017 NFL Draft in Philadelphia (April 27-29 on NFL Network).

      The league released on Thursday a list of 22 prospects who will attend the draft as guests of the NFL, participating in pre-draft events and gathering in a green room to await their draft calls. Washington WR John Ross, whose 4.22 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine broke the event record, joins Clemson QB Deshaun Watson and LSU RB Leonard Fournette among the top players to accept invitations.
      ...

      Thirteen college head coaches will join their players in the green room as they wait to be picked.

          This is an interesting list - makes me wonder who did the grading.
          It's the exceptions that NFL.com has in the top 32 that make it interesting:-
          Myles Garrett (I know excused himself.)
          Malik Hooker
          Dalvin Cook
          OJ Howard
          Reuben Foster
          Mike Williams
          Jabrill Peppers
          Marlon Humphrey
          Tim Williams
          Caleb Brantley
          Taco Charlton
          David Njoku
          Christian McCaffery
          Joe Mixon (one can understand him missing out)
          Evan Engram.

          Some of the guys in the 22 were graded well down the second:-
          Kevin King
          Chidobe Awuzie
          Tre'Davious White
          They also have Kizer in there and not Mahomes - who will almost certainly go in the first.

              Chad Reuter with NFL.com just released his 7 round mock. The following list of toys perfectly illustrates why I'm dreading it.

              1) Patrick Mahommes (Reuter doubts he will still be on the board, and thinks that Josh Jones - S - NC, would be an excellent choice
              2)Taylor Maton OL - W Mich
              3) Marcus Maye S - Fla
              4a) George Kittle TE - Iowa
              4b) Devonte Fields OLB - Louisville
              5) Brandon Wilson CB - Houston
              7) Kai Nacua S - BYU


              I'll be the first to admit that Reuter is a professional and I am not. But, even if he is not as familiar with the Texans as we are, surely he knows enough to begin by just glancing at our team's ranking and discover that our defense is ranked 1st out or 32, (without JJ), and or offense - 28th out of 32 ! This is not uncommon among these professional prognosticators ! Ignorance creates the wrong toys !

                Toughest first round to track than ever for me. I think they'll be a lot of trading around.


                Things I'm hearing...

                1. Cleveland Browns: Mitchell Trubisky
                2. San Francisco 49ers: Myles Garrett
                3. Chicago Bears: Solomon Thomas or Jamal Adams
                4. Jacksonville Jaguars: Deshaun Watson or Fournette
                5. Tennessee Titans: trade down for WR
                6. New York Jets: trade, not QB
                7. Los Angeles Chargers: DB or Johnathan Allen
                8. Carolina Panthers: Christian McCaffrey
                9. Cincinnati Bengals:
                10. Buffalo Bills: not QB

                As soon as a couple of trades occur this gets blown to smithereens.

                  Tonight's rumor (from Pro Football Rumors: "The Browns called teams below them on Wednesday to ask if any would be interested in acquiring the 12th selection, reports Michael Lombardi of The Ringer (Twitter links)."

                    Two teams in the QB chase believe Trubisky will be the No.1 pick OR Cleveland will pay a truckload to move up to the 2 or 3 spot
                    ESPN's Adam Schefter says he has "very smart, very well-connected people" telling him Trubisky will be the top pick.

                    Hearing Trubisky at #1 from many sources, now. Blew it off, but it has legs.

                      At least 24 teams personally have called OSU's Gareon Conley over the past 48 hours, per source. He has proclaimed his innocence to all.

                        And there is growing chatter about Deshaun Watson to Jaguars at No. 4. #QBHysteria

                          As one 49ers person told me, he senses something ďfishyĒ about buzz regarding Trubisky to the Browns at No. 1. They just ainít buying it.

                            RapSheet:
                            My understanding is the #Browns have contacted roughly 27 teams gauging interest in moving up or down.
                            Which is 100% as expected.

                            You're talking to 15/20 teams about every first round pick.

                              Iíve been told itís unlikely the Texans go quarterback first no matter who is on the board, and that safety and offensive tackle are their targets.
