Draft Rumor Station

89 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

It's getting to be that time of the offseason where right before the draft rumors start coming out of the woodwork. A lot, or I would say most of these rumors are probably purposely leaked in order to disinform other teams as this draft is like a 32 man chess game, but some information is just naturally leaked because people have a natural tendency to be babblemouths.

So I thought it would be good to create a thread compiling draft rumors that hit the general populous of football fans.

Instead, Reedy believes that the Bengals will consider: WR [b]Michael Floyd[/b], S [b]Mark Barron[/b], OLB [b]Melvin Ingram[/b], DE [b]Quinton Coples[/b], and DT [b]Michael Brockers[/b].
It’s interesting that Dre Kirkpatrick is not on that list considering that cornerback seems to be an area where they could use some additional help, but the Bengals did sign [b][url="http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/A/AlleJa23.htm"]Jason Allen[/url][/b] and [b][url="http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/N/NewmTe20.htm"]Terence Newman[/url][/b] during the offseason. While I’m sure that the Bengals would love to have these guys, there’s actually a chance that none of the could be available to them, which is why we elected to give them DeCastro at #17 in our recent [url="http://nfltraderumors.co/2012-nfl-mock-draft/"]2012 NFL Mock Draft[/url].

[quote][b]Jaguars Could Move Down Via Eagles or Jets [/b]

Published April 22, 2012
By Charlie Campbell - [url="http://twitter.com/draftcampbell"]@draftcampbell[/url]

The Jacksonville Jaguars have made no secret that they are open to trading down in the 2012 NFL Draft. Sources have revealed the the Jags' ideal draft would be to move down to pick up another second-day pick while targeting a wide receiver or defensive end. If they stay at No. 7 overall, it seems they would be happy to select South Carolina defensive end Melvin Ingram. If, however, they move down, they would likely miss out on Ingram, but they would be happy to land a wide receiver like Notre Dame's Michael Floyd or Baylor's Kendall Wright.

There are two teams that seem to be interested in dealing with the Jaguars. The New York Jets are said to covet Ingram. According to the draft trade chart, the Jets would have to give up their second-round pick and a fourth-round pick. They already dealt their fourth-rounder for quarterback Tim Tebow, so it would probably be a 2013 fourth-rounder, or perhaps a veteran player on their roster.

The other team that could be a trade partner is the Philadelphia Eagles. They are rumored to badly want Mississippi State defensive tackle Fletcher Cox. The Eagles love taking defensive linemen early, and Cox has the pass-rushing ability that Philadelphia desires on the interior of its line. It seems like a stretch for Cox to fall to the Eagles pick at No. 15, and he could easily go ninth overall to the Carolina Panthers.

It's looking more and more like we won't be able to get Fletcher Cox.

[quote]It’s unknown whether Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill will be selected with the third, fourth, fifth, sixth, or seventh choice in the 2012 NFL draft. If the converted receiver remains on the board at No. 8, it’s believed that the Dolphins will be inclined to take him.

On the surface, the decision would seem to flow from first-year offensive coordinator Mike Sherman, the architect of Tannehill’s transition to quarterback in College Station. But a league source tells PFT that the man pushing hardest for Tannehill is owner Stephen Ross.

Ross desperately wants to turn the page on yet another embarrassing offseason, which has seen the Dolphins fail to hire Jeff Fisher as coach and Peyton Manning as quarterback. They also whiffed on new coach Joe Philbin’s pupil with the Packers, Matt Flynn, even though it’s unclear whether the Dolphins decided they didn’t want Flynn or Flynn decided he didn’t want the Dolphins, or a little bit of both.[/quote] - [url=http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/04/22/source-stephen-ross-is-pushing-for-ryan-tannehill/]PFT[/url]

I guess it's a given now that the Dolphins are going to take Tannehill if he's there.

unfortunately it's starting to look like a possibility. also saw this

Rumor we heard from Jax about Sea mving up may not be a rumor. Heard from a source 2day #Seahawks may try and move up. To get Fletcher Cox.


Radio personality for KJRAM 950 in Seattle.[/quote]

Even if I don't like it, I can understand the Eagles moving up to get him, but if this rumor is true about Seattle, then fug them, seriously. They almost never whiff on any defensive tackle they acquire. They even made Alan Branch look decent last year.

This guy is an idiot, if you don't have a good left-tackle then you don't have a QB. Simple as that.

[b] Leslie Frazier says left tackle may not be a “game-changer”[/b]

[/quote]

[quote]“You’ve got to really weigh your options,” coach Leslie Frazier told Dan Wiederer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “Because the philosophy [in the NFL] has always been to get the game-changer. And left tackle is not necessarily the game-changer. Usually game-changers are the guys who can score you points. Receivers. Quarterbacks. So what are we measuring that left tackle against? It’s a loaded debate.”[/quote]

Yeah seems with Jacksonville sitting in front of us and willing to trade down, the Jets or Eagles will move up a take Cox... It's just out of our hands pretty much right

If jets move up I'd say they would take Ingram.

So is Cox really as good as people make him out to be or is he just the best DT in a shallow draft class? From my perspective I dont really see anything that great.

It's not a shallow draft class. But it isn't a superb one either.

[sub]Gah, if the Jets or Eagles do trade up for Cox then we'll just take Coples. We'll be getting a top 3 defensive talent for sure.[/sub]
