Draft Updates: Treadwell, Nkemdiche, Goff

The pro day for Ole Miss players took place on Monday, meaning all eyes were on prospects like wide receiver Laquon Treadwell and defensive end Robert Nkemdiche. Treadwell said today that he has private workouts lined up with the Bengals and Dolphins, according to Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com (Twitter link). The young wideout met with the 49ers last night, per Tony Pauline at WalterFootball.com.

Nkemdiche had dinner with the Cowboys last night and will officially visit the team’s facility prior to the draft, but Dallas is just one of 14 teams he’s scheduled to visit, according to Pauline. The Niners, Chargers, Raiders, Buccaneers, and Bears are also on the docket for Nkemdiche.

Here are several more draft updates from around the league:

  • The Eagles invested significant money in a pair of quarterbacks this month, signing Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel to new contracts, but that doesn’t mean the team has entirely ruled out the possibility of drafting one early. Per John Middlekauff of 95.7 The Game (Twitter link), Philadelphia is doing its homework on Jared Goff, working out the Cal QB in Berkeley today.
  • Writing for PhiladelphiaEagles.com, Tony Pauline reports that he has spoken to insiders who believe the Titans are considering Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa with the No. 1 overall pick. The general consensus is that Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil will come off the board first overall, but some of Pauline’s sources believe it’s a “coin flip between Tunsil and Bosa” at this point.
  • During an appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio (Twitter link), Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones revealed that, while he hasn’t made any trips yet, he has private workouts scheduled with the Bills and Cardinals.
  • Rand Getlin of the NFL Network (via Twitter) adds the Dolphins to the list of teams looking at Georgia outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins, who has been linked to at least five other teams.
  • Defensive tackle Vernon Butler, a Louisiana Tech product, said on SiriusXM NFL Radio (Twitter link) that he has a visit with the Bengals lined up for Thursday.

    I can see the Titans not picking Tunsil because of the presence of Lewan (although with a young QB to protect long-term, having an elite left tackle prospect manning the blindside still makes a lot of sense, and I think Tennessee should still draft Tunsil). But I’m surprised to learn that Bosa is the Tunsil alternative. I think he’s a perfect fit for the Cowboys, but I don’t see him as a No. 1 overall talent, and if Tennessee wants to go defense, Ramsey or Jack would be better choices in my opinion.

    I believe Bosa is going to be a bust. He doesn’t have a great first step and guys like that get eaten up in the NFL. Cardale Jones ending up with Bruce Arians is exactly where he needs to go and sit and sit and sit. That’s the only shot he has imo.

    • Apparently people are just comparing Bosa to every white DE ever lol. If he’s a stud he is Jared Allen, if he is a bust he’s definately Mike Mamula. As for Cardale, there are several teams he could sit on and turn into a legit starting QB.. Dallas, Arizona, New Orleans any team with a 35+ aged starting QB.

    Robinson has too many years in scouting to not see bosa is a bust. Tunsil and ramsey are only options at #1 for Titans. Even trading back they shouldn’t touch him.

  4. Anyone who thinks they aren’t taking Tunsil is delirious. They’d take Ramsey over Tunsil before Bosa over Tunsil. They’re scouting Neal to take him atop round 2 b/c the Cards are likely to take Ryan Kelly now in round 1. But Robinson won’t last long if he drafts Ramsey and Mariotta gets destroyed again in year 2.

    I don’t care what color Bosa is. His first step is not elite stuff. I’d just be very surprised if he’s above average as a pro. As far as the Titans taking Tunsil over Ramsey, I personally think Ramsey is a better player that is a foundation piece for a defense. So is Miles Jack. Mariota’s problem isn’t the line; he got sacked a lot in college too and fumbled a lot too. But so many people were focused on Winston’s so called interception problem to notice that. Mariota was a spread QB; they get hit more early in their careers and some always do. Taking another OL isn’t going to change that.
