Bucs confirm RB Saquon Barkley has been in for official predraft visit


It looks like the idea of "football guy" being in the Cleveland Browns front office is swaying everyone's opinion of what they will do at No. 1 overall in next week's NFL Draft.

The 2018 NFL Draft kicks off on April 26, 2018 and runs through the 28th. While Cleveland will probably take a quarterback with the first or fourth pick, it's still uncertain as to which one they'll choose.

For months, Cleveland fans have debated whether the team should select Southern Cal's Sam Darnold or Wyoming's Josh Allen or UCLA's Josh Rosen or Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield.

Two more quarterbacks crack this first-round mock: Louisville's Lamar Jackson (No. 12 overall, Buffalo Bills) and Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph (No. 29 overall, Jacksonville Jaguars).

But as Kevin Clark of The Ringer writes, the Browns have actually considered drafting not one, but two quarterbacks high in the draft.

At the ninth spot in the draft, the 49ers find themselves desperately needing to find Jimmy Garoppolo more opportunities, and that is why they reach for a position of need, and draft ride receiver Calvin Ridley from Alabama. No other quarterback even cracked 10 inches in the measurement.

Dorsey hasn't ruled out trading the No. 1 or No. 4 pick either.

The New York Jets traded up with Indianapolis Colts to select their quarterback at the third pick. They want him to go second to the Giants and play in the media capital of the world. If they go to No. 6, he said, and quarterbacks go with the first three picks, they'd still be able to get one of the top three non-quarterbacks: Saquon Barkley, Bradley Chubb or Quenton Nelson. "Second of all, I'm going to tell y'all, I go black in this time of year". "But I will say this: He was a little too quiet for my liking this past year".

Whether or not his comments are indicative of which way the Giants are leaning on draft day, Gettleman was insistent that no decisions have been or will be made until the action gets underway at 8 p.m. ET in AT&T Stadium next Thursday. He left open the possibility for nearly anything with the Giants' top pick. I have no interest in taking Jackon or Mayfield at one.

Allen has a rocket arm and great size for an National Football League quarterback. "Now, I'm not necessarily a big believer in that style of offense and style of pass game, particularly for a young quarterback, but I think that's something that Josh Allen is used to".
