Draft Rumors: Lynch, Floyd, Giants

NFL GMs are dying to know where Paxton Lynch gets picked, Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com writes. Some teams are hoping that he makes it to the 20s in order to facilitate a trade at their pick. Others are hopeful that he’ll go just outside the top 10, allowing a different player to fall to them. Overall, no one really has a clear understanding of where he might go.

He could go anywhere from 12-to-31,” one GM posited.

While we wait to see what happens with Lynch on Thursday night, here’s a rundown of the latest NFL Draft rumors:

  • Georgia linebacker Leonard Floyd is generating big buzz heading into the draft, according to Peter Schrager of FOX Sports (on Twitter). Floyd, he says, could be a candidate for the Jaguars at No. 5, the Buccaneers at No. 9, the Giants at No. 10, and the Bears at No. 11. Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (Twitter link) says that he appears destined to go inside the top ten. Schrager (link) hears that a team with a top 10 pick scheduled a meeting with Floyd on Tuesday to get one last look.
  • Hours before the NFL Draft, former Ole Miss tackle Laremy Tunsil is being sued by his stepfather over an alleged attack which took place last June, Daniel Paulling of the Jackson Clarion-Ledger writes. “I don’t know anything about it,” Tunsil said when asked by reporters on Wednesday. Tunsil is widely projected to be a top five pick.
  • Oregon wide receiver Byron Marshall visited the Ravens and worked out for the Cardinals and Eagles, Wilson tweets. Marshall suffered an ankle injury that caused him to miss all but four games last season, but he is said to be healthy now. In 2014, Marshall cracked 1,000 receiving yards for the Ducks.
  • Air Force defensive end/outside linebacker Alex Hansen is drawing late interest from the Chargers, Eagles, Ravens, Texans, Broncos, Rams, and Lions, Wilson tweets.

  1. Being sued by his step-father just days before the draft? Shame on you. Trying to cash in? Shady.

  2. I see the bears trading up in the first to land Buckner, drafting Nkemdiche in the second , TE Hunter in the third, Smith in the fourth, Prescott at QB in the fifth , CB in the sixth , as well as a safety in the sixth , to finish things off with a corner in the seventh…. The reason being they grab a couple of playmakers in the first couple rounds, a well groomed TE in Hunter who hasn’t dropped a pass all of last yr the new Greg Olsen the bears been looking for, Smith in the fourth , the reason for this pick is the bears can afford to Gamble on Smith with the signing on Trevathan and Freeman in the offseason Smith can sit an heal all the way, Prescott in the fifth so they get a young talent they can groom , and 2 CB an 1safety the reason for one safety is the bears didn’t cut ties with Rolle meaning they still want to see what they have in him , I didn’t grab any OL because the BEARS added 3 in the offseason with 2guards and one tackle in Massie with this draft the BEARS are primed for a playoff push …. So see you in January BEARS fans DA MONSTERS OF DA MIDWAY HAVE RETURNED… #BEARDAF***DOWN or LaydaF***Down…

      I don’t see hunter getting to the third

    • gmlivers98

      Hunter Henry will not fall to third. And Nkemdiche will likely gone before the Bears pick in the second.

      • UnanymousSuperBowler

        Hunter will be gone before bears pick in second, and nkemdiche will be first rounder most likely. And you said they need to trade up to land buckner but you act like they still would draft other players in the next six rounds even after the trade? Thats an unreliable source right there :)

      Dude go away. Everyone, this is not how actual Bears fans are. Oh and by the way, you forgot to pick someone else with their second pick in the 4th round. don’t even know how many picks they have. Go away. And learn how to not talk like a wanna be gangbanger.
