Mel Kiper's second mock draft ahead of the 2017 National Football League draft, which was released mid-February past year, only ended up predicting two picks correctly, and one of those (Myles Garrett to the Browns) was obvious. Kiper has Rosen going 11th to the Dolphins. Inviting the high school coaches to the NFL draft is a cool way to bring a player's football journey full circle. He has tremendous athleticism for a big man.
The Aztecs have had only three running backs go in the top two rounds - Marshall Faulk in the first round to Indianapolis in 1994, David "Deacon" Turner in the second round to Cincinnati in 1977 and Don Shy in the second round to Pittsburgh in 1967. He's just got all the physical traits you want. "He has great competitive desire".
Will Brinson of CBSSports.com released his latest mock draft but this time, he sees Buffalo making a huge deal with the Denver Broncos to move up to No. 5 overall. Still, securing a quarterback for their team could prove substantial in the team's performance, even if it meant giving away either of their number 21 or 22 overall player. Mayfield, the 2017 Heisman Trophy victor, put up huge numbers for the Sooners and measured at 6-foot at the Senior Bowl. Then you say well Josh Allen had some. He didn't have a lot of the gimmies, the layups, the tunnel screens, the bubble screens. I thought he played great in that Texas game in September.
It's a shrewd move by the league, a low-priced strategy for tapping deeper into feelings like loyalty and guilt in an effort to get the player who may be inclined to pass on the invitation to attend. Jackson allowed just a 41.3-completion rate when targeted last season. "If the Rams still had a second-round pick, it would be easier to look at a different position".
If Lynch chooses to take another calculated risk this year and trade down with the Bills, they will get two top-tier players who can contribute to the 49ers' quest for their sixth ring.
USA, Canada set for 'battle of the ages'
General manager Sean Burke called Scrivens day-to-day with a shoulder/collarbone injury and expects the veteran to return. It was Jocelyne Lamoureux who would finally set the Americans ahead, with a phenomenal deke that left plenty of net open.
However, Kiper's projection could see a significant change once free agency rolls around. None of them are flawless.
Colts at No. 3?
The Giants now have a backup quarterback to Manning in Webb, who just completed his rookie campaign.
ESPN's Rob Demovsky made a few interesting points about why that might be, noting how much the Packers need impact pass rushers.
Some key players the Niners can take with those two picks include UTSA defensive end Marcus Davenport, Alabama linebacker Rashaan Evans, Colorado cornerback Isaiah Oliver and LSU running back Derrius Guice.
"That would be a risky move", Kiper said of a Colts trade-out. I think you have to be very careful. "He's a safety if you need him there".

Studies show flu vaccine is less than 40% effective
Researchers measure the vaccine's ability to prevent outpatient medical visits due to laboratory-confirmed influenza infections. Since these targeted treatments are not yet available, Coates stresses that flu vaccination is crucial.
