NFL Draft Rumors: Brown, Harry, Cardinals

This week’s combine re-checks produced very positive news for Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown, according to Ian Rapoport of (on Twitter). Brown, who has been out of a boot for weeks, was given the thumbs up on his surgically-repaired foot.

Despite the injury, the 5’9″ receiver is widely projected as a first round pick. Last year, Brown put himself on the NFL radar with 75 catches for 1,318 yards and ten touchdowns.

Here’s the latest NFL Draft buzz:

  • Arizona State wide receiver N’Keal Harry will work out for the Cardinals on April 20 at ASU, according to a source who spoke with’s Josh Weinfuss (on Twitter). Head coach Kliff Kingsbury, GM Steve Keim, and president Michael Bidwill will be among those on hand for Harry’s only private NFL workout. Harry isn’t a contender for the No. 1 overall pick, but he could be a candidate for the Cardinals’ first pick of the second round (No. 33 overall)
  • The Rams are meeting with Clemson defensive linemen Dexter Lawrence and Clelin Ferrell on campus, Rapoport tweets. Both players are expected to go in the first round, but the Rams may be out of range at No. 31 overall.
  • Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams will visit the Jaguars on Thursday, a source tells’s Adam Schefter (Twitter link).
  • Houston cornerback Isaiah Johnson will work out for the Falcons on Thursday, Rapoport tweets. The converted wide receiver came away with two interceptions in each of the last two seasons and could go as high as the second round.

    Harry and Brown are both busts.. no way either one goes 1st round either, unless it’s Brown low-30’s

    I think DKM goes earlier than expected.. perfect replacement for OBJ in NY, or a towering target downfield for Josh Allen in Buffalo.

    I just don’t understand why DKM’s not talked about enough. He’s a Megatron who’s pretty close to can’t miss prospect.

    Parris Campbell could be elite, but is QB dependent. Would thrive in say Pittsburgh, but would be just another guy on Tenesee or Jaxsonville etc.

    Deebo & AJ Brown are pretty similar physical receivers who should be able to beat press and catch over the middle at the next level. Neither has breakaway speed but could fill a slot role.

    I’d rank Marquis after those 4 guys. He has wheels, but was one dimensional in routes, injury prone, and very small. He’s a boom or bust prospect, and a team taking him early is taking a major gamble.

    Harry is a mid round talent. Big target who could learn from Fitz in Zona, but doesn’t have much upside in terms of speed or route running.
