AFC Notes: Titans, Conklin, Broncos, Raiders

Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil is the odds-on favorite to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 draft, but he’s not the only standout tackle the Titans are eyeing. A source tells Terry McCormick of that the team is expected to host Michigan State tackle Jack Conklin for a visit soon. Conklin isn’t a candidate to come off the board first, but if Tennessee ends up moving down in the first round, he could be in play for the Titans.

Here’s more from across the AFC:

  • Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott was hosted for a pre-draft visit by the Broncos today, as Ian Rapoport of tweets. Prescott is unlikely to go in the first round, so the Broncos could look to target him in the second or third round of the draft.
  • Central Arkansas defensive end Jonathan Woodard had a visit scheduled with the Raiders on Monday and will meet with the Titans on Friday, as Tyler Dunne of The Buffalo News tweets.
  • Oklahoma State defensive lineman Emmanuel Ogbah recently paid a visit to the Bills and will soon visit the Texans, tweets Rand Getlin of the NFL Network.
  • Seth Walder of the New York Daily News provides some details on Brandon Marshall‘s civil trial stemming from an altercation outside a Manhattan nightclub in 2012. As Walder notes, Marshall didn’t face criminal charges at the time, but it’s unclear if the NFL might still consider discipline, should the Jets wideout lose the civil trial.
  • Appearing on SiriusXM NFL Radio today, Ohio State tight end Nick Vannett said he has a visit on Sunday with the Jets (Twitter link via Alex Marvez of FOX Sports). Vannett has frequently been linked to Gang Green in recent weeks, having already privately worked out for and met with the team.

    This would be so typical of the controversy & corruption-plagued reign of self-righteous, agreement-ignoring, favourite-playing, racist, power-tripping, neo-fascist NFL commissioner Rogers “I make up the rules as I go along” Goodell! Brandon Marshall gets in a bar scrap with some volatile, fight-picking pay check day drunken idiot in which he evidently didn’t instigate based on the fact that he wasn’t even charged by the police summoned to the scene yet has to deal with a civil suit (?!?) filed by this opportunistic idiot who sobers up long enough to realize that he picked a fight with a wealthy marquis NFL wide receiver & enlists the services of some smarmy parasitical ambulance-chasing lawyer that envisions millions of prospective dollar signs windfalling onto his lopsided desk with an out-of-date law book supporting one of it’s scratched-up legs who spins a tale of untold riches to be had from an almost guaranteed out of court settlement with this high-profile celebrity target and the reactionary egomaniacal commissioner of the NFL subsequently slaps Marshall with an unappealable suspension (Roger “Conflict of Interest” Goodell actually hears his own appeals!!) for the 2016 season despite the glaring fact that not only has he not been convicted in any court of law, he HASN’T EVEN BEEN CHARGED FOR HAVING COMMITTED A CRIME!!

    Roger Goodell is without a doubt the worst commissioner of a professional sports league since Kenesaw Mountain Landis!
