One Team Asked Daniel Jones To Work Out As Tight End

May 6, 2019 2:59 PM

One NFL team inquired as to whether Daniel Jones would be willing to work out as a tight end because they felt he wasn't good enough to play quarterback.

Lamar Jackson was asked a similar question last season about playing wide receiver and he's now the quarterback of the present and future for the Baltimore Ravens.

The New York Giants selected Jones with the No. 4 overall pick.

May 3, 2019 8:11 AM

Forty-five percent of first round picks (14 of 31) from the 2016 NFL Draft had their fifth-year options declined.

In each of the last two years, 20 fifth-year options were picked up and 12 were declined.

Jack Conklin was the highest selected player who had his option declined as the Tennessee Titans had selected him eight overall.

The Cleveland Browns had already released Corey Coleman, as had the Denver Broncos with Paxton Lynch.

Tua Tagovailoa Considered Favorite To Be Top Pick In 2020 NFL Draft

May 1, 2019 5:52 PM

Tua Tagovailoa is the favorite to be the top pick in the 2020 NFL Draft at -300.

Next year's draft will be in Las Vegas, which promoted odds to be posted early.

"With the draft in Las Vegas next year, we wanted to get a head start and carry the momentum from the recent draft," said Jeff Sherman of the Westgate SuperBook. "The first overall selection prop bridges our college and pro football menus, and the closer to the draft next year, we will add a multitude of wagering options."
