Vikings Swap Picks With Eagles, Move To 188

Minutes after trading an original Dolphins pick back to the Dolphins, the Vikings used the selection they just received — No. 196 — to move up to No. 188 courtesy of the Eagles.

Minnesota, which held the No. 186 pick before trading it to Miami, drafted tight end David Morgan from Texas-San Antonio with the choice two spots later. Philadelphia received No. 240 in exchange for allowing the Vikings to move back into the 180s.

After the whirlwind of transactions, the Vikings add a tight end to a depth chart that could use another prospect, particularly now that the offense features a careful quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater that’s leaned on tight ends early in his career.

Starter Kyle Rudolph has been a decent option for the Vikings after signing a five-year, $36.5MM extension in 2014, but he’s not a dynamic receiver with which that price correlates. The former Notre Dame standout managed to stay healthy last season and established a new career high with 495 air yards. Behind Rudolph, the Vikings’ second-round pick in 2011, Minnesota houses Rhett Ellison and MyCole Pruitt. Ellison’s contract expires after 2016.



Dolphins Reacquire No. 186 Pick From Vikings

The Dolphins’ infatuations with multiple receivers caused the No. 186 pick to be exchanged twice in two days.

Miami reacquired the sixth-round selection from Minnesota in order to take elusive Texas Tech slot receiver Jakeem Grant, doing so a day after sending it to the Vikings on Friday night in trading up to take Rutgers target Leonte Carroo at No. 86.

The Dolphins sent a seventh-round pick — No. 227 — to the Vikings in order to move up again to take a wideout, Ben Goessling of ESPN.com reports (on Twitter). The Vikings then re-traded the Dolphins’ No. 196 choice with the Eagles to No. 188.

A 5-foot-7 target who led Division I-FBS in yards after catch in 2015, Grant broke out for a 1,268-yard, 10-touchdown season for the spread-reliant Red Raiders as a senior. At 168 pounds, Grant profiles as a player who can help the Dolphins out as a return man as well. He and Carroo add to a receiving corps that lost Rishard Matthews and, to a lesser extent, Greg Jennings, in the offseason but returns Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills.

Washington Trades No. 158 Pick To Jets

The Jets acquired the No. 158 pick from Washington in exchange for a 2017 fourth-round selection, Master Tefatsion of the Washington Post tweets. Gang Green chose South Carolina tackle Brandon Shell with the pick.

New York did not have a fifth-round choice after it sent the No. 157 selection to the Broncos for Ryan Clady earlier this month. With the draft’s ensuing choice, the Jets brought in a player who could serve as the succession plan post-Clady. The former 2008 No. 1 pick’s contract expires after the 2017 season.

The Jets had yet to address their offensive front during the draft after entering the weekend relatively thin on long-term options up front. Breno Giacomini resides as the incumbent right tackle, and although the team re-signed Ben Ijalana earlier this offseason, he’s a career backup who barely played during his time with the Jets after backing up iron man D’Brickashaw Ferguson.

A 6-foot-6, 328-pound tackle, Brandon Shell started for four seasons for the Gamecocks and is the great nephew of Raiders Hall of Fame tackle and ensuing coach Art Shell.

Titans Acquire No. 157 Pick From Broncos

The Titans have traded back into the fifth round, according to Mike Klis of 9NEWS, who tweets that Tennessee has acquired the No. 157 overall pick from the Broncos. The Titans led off the fifth round by snagging UMass wide receiver Tajae Sharpe and have now landed a second pick, which they used to draft Southern Utah cornerback LeShaun Sims.

In exchange for the No. 157 overall pick, the Broncos have received the 176th overall pick (a 2016 sixth-rounder) and a sixth-round pick for 2017, per Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post (Twitter link). The Titans also picked up a 2016 seventh-rounder in the deal, which falls at No. 253 — that’s the last pick of this year’s draft, so Tennessee is currently in line to select this year’s Mr. Irrelevant.

One reason the Broncos may have added this 2017 selection: the trade with the Eagles for a conditional ’17 choice that brought Mark Sanchez to Denver now looks like it will be for a sixth-round pick and not a seventh-rounder, Klis tweets. The presumptive Week 1 starter for the Broncos, Sanchez was traded for a conditional 2017 draft choice last month.

The Broncos initially acquired this fifth-round choice from the Jets in the teams’ Ryan Clady swap — one that also involved Denver sending a seventh-rounder to New York — earlier this month. The defending champions now hold three picks in the draft’s final two rounds.

Tennessee selected a safety during its busy Day 2 in Kevin Byard of Middle Tennessee but could use some help at corner presently beyond starters Jason McCourty and Perrish Cox. The Titans also added to the position by signing Brice McCain, however.

Draft Updates: Cowboys, Tunsil, Pats, Jets, Saints

The Cowboys’ later-round selections have featured some interesting near-misses. Dallas has been linked to multiple players it did not end up selecting, including new Browns edge-rusher Emmanuel Ogbah, whom Cleveland chose in Round 2. The team also eyed Clemson defensive end Kevin Dodd, Tony Pauline of WalterFootball.com reports.

Even its own pick brought uncertainty after a report surfaced Friday that the team nearly unloaded its second-round pick to the Bears before taking Notre Dame injured star Jaylon Smith. Perhaps these pass-rushers going off the board contributed to the urge to wanting to trade down.

We heard Friday night the Cowboys are not going to re-sign Greg Hardy. This, coupled with the looming suspensions of Demarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory have left the team thin at defensive end despite signing former Eagles edge presence Cedric Thornton in free agency. It took Dallas until the fourth round to address this spot, when it took Charles Tapper from Oklahoma.

Here’s the latest from the draft.

  • The Saints traded up for the 120th pick, but according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport (via Twitter), they didn’t get their selection in on time. This allowed the Vikings to jump the Saints, with Minnesota selecting offensive lineman Willie Beavers. New Orleans presumably still got their target in defensive tackle David Onyemata.
  • The Dolphins believe it was the former financial advisor of rookie Laremy Tunsil who released the incriminating gas mask video, tweets Andrew Abrasion of The Palm Beach Post. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the video caused Tunsil to drop from the sixth overall pick to No. 13.
  • Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan told Dom Cosentino of NJ.com that the team isn’t working to acquire another quarterback, including Nick Foles (Twitter link).
  • Pauline also notes the Patriots‘ collection of second- or third-round quarterback choices in the Tom Brady era could have included Wisconsin passer Joel Stave instead of the player they actually selected, Jacoby Brissett, in the third round. While neither was considered a top prospect, Brissett was mentioned as a mid- or late-round pick before the lesser-regarded Stave — a 6-foot-5 former Badger, who remains on the board. Stave threw for just 11 TDs last season for the run-oriented Badgers.
  • The Steelers are considering a trade to get into the fifth round, Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review tweets.

Patriots Trade No. 147 Selection To Seahawks

Having just traded up with the Dolphins to acquire the No. 147 selection, the Patriots have now sent that pick to the Seahawks. Sending Miami picks Nos. 196, 204, and 250, New England will now receive No. 225 this year and picks up Seattle’s fourth-round choice in 2017, Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com tweets.

With the pick, the Seahawks chose Maryland defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson.

Jefferson is the second defensive tackle Seattle has selected during draft weekend, with the Seahawks bolstering their front in Round 2 in the form of Alabama interior cog Jarran Reed, a player whom some draft experts tabbed as a first-round talent.

The Seahawks boast some depth inside, but haven’t invested highly in the position. They re-signed Ahtyba Rubin to a three-year deal earlier this offseason and added Sealver Siliga from the Patriots. 2013 third-rounder Jordan Hill rounds out the group that’s been bolstered this weekend. It’s the only position on the Seahawks’ defense that hasn’t received a significant financial commitment, with defensive end, inside and outside linebacker, corner and safety housing players on lucrative second contracts.

Saints Acquire 120th Pick From Washington

The Saints have found a way into the fourth round, as Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports (via Twitter) that the team has acquired the 120th pick from Washington. Jones reports that Washington will receive pick No. 152 and a 2017 fifth-rounder in return. The Saints will use the pick on University of Manitoba (Canada) defensive tackle David Onyemata.

Hailing from Nigeria, Onyemata was considered a fifth- or sixth-round pick by NFL.com. The 6-4, 300-pound lineman finished this past season with 50 tackles, five sacks, and 7.5 tackles for a loss. His performance earned him the J.P. Metras Trophy for the best down lineman in CIS. These are especially impressive accolades when you consider that Onyemata started playing football in 2011.

Draft Notes: Cowboys, Dolphins, Broncos

With the fourth round nearly halfway done, let’s check in on some draft whispers from around the league…

  • The Cowboys‘ gameplan for the second round was to select Oklahoma State defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah and then move up and select Notre Dame linebacker Jaylon Smith, according to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News (via Twitter). Ogbah was ultimately selected by the Browns with the first pick of the second round, and Dallas snagged Smith two picks later.
  • NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport says there was a general belief that the Cowboys would select quarterback Connor Cook with pick No. 101, leading to the Raiders‘ acquisition of the 100th pick. Meanwhile, Rapoport notes that Oakland is planning on keeping Matt McGloin and allowing the two quarterbacks to compete for the back-up job.
  • According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald (on Twitter), the Dolphins slapped Leonte Carroo with a “second-round grade.” Miami ended up snagging the Rutgers wideout late in the third round.
  • If Laremy Tunsil hadn’t been around at No. 13, the Dolphins would have selected UCLA linebacker Myles Jack, tweets Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald. Eli Apple, who was selected 10th overall, was also under consideration for the pick.
  • Speaking of Tunsil, ESPN’s Adam Schefter determined how much money the offensive lineman actually lost on Thursday evening (via Twitter). The Ravens were prepared to select the embattled University of Mississippi product with the sixth-overall pick, but Tunsil ended up falling to No. 13. Schefter estimates that the rookie lost nearly $7MM after having fallen eight spots.
  • The Broncos are fielding calls on several of their picks, reports Mike Klis of 9News in Denver (via Twitter). The team has a compensatory fourth-round pick (which can’t be traded), as well as two fifth-round selections.
