With the NFL draft starting in less than three weeks, let’s check out some assorted prospect notes from the AFC…
- Following reports that the Bills are “enamored” by Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com believes the signal caller would be a good fit for the organization. In fact, if the Bills really do feel strongly about Jones, the writer suggests not waiting until the third round to select him.
- Unless the Ravens are convinced Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott can be a 1,200-yard rusher, Clifton Brown of CSNMidAtlantic.com writers that it would be a mistake to select the back with the sixth overall pick. Brown cites the team’s holes on defense, as well as the team’s depth at running back.
- The Browns will be hosting several local prospects prior to the draft, including Harvard offensive lineman Adam Redmond. “For a guy like me, that’s huge,” Redmond told Nate Ulrich of Ohio.com. “I’m not getting written about. I’m not on draft blogs or anything like that, which is fine. But I need to take advantage of every opportunity. I think that is what separates those high-ranked guys and guys like me. I might only get one shot, so I need to take advantage of that.”
- The Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson tweeted the list the attendees at the Texans local prospect day, including University of Houston punter Logan Piper, defensive back Adrian McDonald, and running backs Kenneth Farrow and Ryan Jackson.
