The panthers first three picks in 2016 were players who came in for private workouts rather than visits. Hmmm

I keep seeing at 8 McCaffery for them

@tompeliserro
Former Alabama safety Eddie Jackson said he has spoken with Reuben Foster. Calls him a great guy. "He just made a mistake." @SiriusXMNFL

Jackson says he has a workout tomorrow with the #Bills. Deems himself 100% after the broken leg that ended his senior year.

Is our whole "visit philosophy" changing, and more in line with the "QB smokescreen theory"?

No ****, Mike. He's running fast on borrowed time. That right knee is a time bomb.

It's tricky knowing exactly when issues will arise long-term. He had the surgery around 2 1/2 years ago and he's also had an ACL tear in his left knee since. Could that be an effect of the initial surgery, overcompensation to the left side, causing more stress.

 

Bruce Smith supposedly played on for 6 years after having the same done. Greg Oden was never the same after his surgery. It could go either way.

 

Myles Jack dropped after nothing more than speculation that he required it. DaQuan Bowers should've dropped further than the late 2nd because of arthritis fears and the looming shadow of the surgery. Takes a brave (potentially stupid) team to take Ross in the 1st.

Yep, yet it only takes one. I was really surprised with the Jaylon Smith pick. They were talking about that being career threatening and he still went in the 2nd. There were a bunch of teams that wouldn't have taken him in the 7th. Ross is in kind of a similar situation. There are certain concerns but if a team has confidence that he will be okay the value will be there at some point. I look at a team like Tampa. They can use another weapon alongside Evans and Ross could be a really nice balance.

I think Lombardi could be full of BS, frankly. I do trust Blokes on his info, but Lombardi can pound sand.

I still think he goes in the 10-20 range; he's the kind of guy that you can get 1st round value out of even if he only plays 20 snaps per game.

 

I could see any of NO, Philly, Baltimore, Tennessee, or TB biting.

 

I think Detroit could be interesting as well given that they have nothing but Abbrederies and TJ Jones behind Marvin Jones and Golden Tate.

@rapsheet
On advice of teams at Combine recheck, Bama S Eddie Jackson had screw causing discomfort removed from his surgically repaired leg yesterday
Following the procedure, #Bama S @EJackson_4 will be available for all football activity, including rookie mini camp. Minor work done.

Be interesting to see if we sign him.

@spencito_
Normally we rely on predraft visits & workouts to tell us who a team is interested in. #Bills gave nothing away. Kept interests in house.

@joebuscaglia
All three of the #Bills picks have one thing in common: little to no contact with the #Bills in the pre-draft process. #SneakySean
