Jay Gruden: “Good possibility” we draft a running back early
There are a lot of people who think that Saquon Barkley is the best overall player in this year’s draft class and it’s hard to find anyone who doesn’t think he’s the best running back entering the league this year.
Giants — Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State: The Jets’ trade set the G-Men up to take home a potential king’s ransom if they can find their own QB-hungry trade partner. But if Barkley’s on the board, this might be a no-brainer for new GM Dave Gettleman.
Lions — Taven Bryan, DT, Florida: Matt Patricia knows the pains of trying to cobble together a pass rush after his last two years with the Patriots, and DE Ziggy Ansah alone won’t suffice in Detroit. Bryan can create havoc all along the line, though he’s still learning to tap into his considerable athletic gifts.
Considering James’ skillset, it’s highly unlikely Ramsey gets his wish, as the defensive back will presumably be gone by the time the Jaguars select at 28. A potential top-10 draft pick, James – taking one out of Ramsey’s book – sung his own praise, particularly when asked about certain media outlets slotting defensive back and Alabama product Minkah Fitzpatrick ahead of him. “I know what type of player I am. I know I’m the best player in this draft.” The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Chicago Bears, and San Francisco 49ers at No. 7 to No. 9 appear to be the most logical landing spot for James on April 26 in Arlington, Texas.
Broncos — Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA: John Elway touted new signee?Case Keenum as “our guy” last week, but that didn’t stop him from delaying the veteran’s introduction while he and Baseball Jerseys Wholesale the rest of Denver’s cavalry attended pro days for Mayfield and Rosen. Even with Keenum on board, Elway looks poised to make good on his combine pledge to keep swinging at the position. Rosen is the Wholesale Jerseys Cheap most polished and technically sound of this year’s passers and could finally break Denver’s cycle of uncertainty behind center.
