Draft Rumors: Kaaya, Watt, Conley, Thomas

Here’s the latest NFL Draft news:

  • Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya will enter the NFL Draft, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets. Kaaya has long been expected to go pro this year and take advantage of a weak QB crop. Reportedly, the Bears are among the teams that are fond of him and some say he has the highest football IQ of any QB in this year’s class.
  • Wisconsin standout T.J. Watt announced that he is NFL-bound. After tallying 63 tackles and 11.5 sacks in 14 games, Watt stands as one of the very best outside linebackers in this year’s class. The younger brother of Texans superstar J.J. Watt is expected to go within the first two rounds.
  • Ohio State cornerback Gareon Conley declared for the draft this week. It has been long expected that the fourth-year junior would forego his final year on campus to go pro. Conley is one of the best cornerbacks available this year and projects as a late first-round or early second-round pick.
  • Stanford defensive lineman Solomon Thomas announced that he is declaring for the NFL Draft. Thomas could potentially be a first round pick, but he is in competition with an uncommonly stacked defensive end class.

    I watched Thomas in Stanford’s bowl game. Talk about owning an offensive line.
    The guy absolutely dominated.

    I could see Kaaya as a second round pick to either the niners or bears

      He could go to the Jags if he makes it to the top of round 3
      I have seen him projected there.
      I think the top of round 2 is too high

      Maybe even to the Browns, though he might not do very well in the cold and wind there.
