We are coming down the homestretch and the rumors are a swirling! The latest, Mitchell Trubisky to the 49ers (nailed it)!
I could be falling for the Reuben Foster smokescreen (pun intended); I don’t worry too much about the failed drug test, or the meltdown he had at the combine, but his medicals are a bit concerning given his style of play. He is an absolute missile on the field, so I believe he will still go early on Day 1 but Top-10 is probably too risky.

Instant Analysis: Ginger King lays out a compelling argument for why the G-men will draft Tight End David Njoku. While that makes perfect sense, I still have Big Blue adding an Edge defender that can terrorize NFC East QBs for years to come. The Giants will add a ho-hum TE later in the draft (whom will be a fantasy football asset playing with such an elite QB).
I’m having trouble finding a home for Dalvin Cook. His college production was so good, yet his combine numbers were so pedestrian. TB at 19 makes some sense, but I believe we’ll go late in Round 1, if not slip into the second Round.
The Raiders double down in true Al Davis fashion, first by moving the team and then by selecting the faster player in the Draft. Injury history be damned!
