ESPN's Ed Were reports from one medical source in the NFL who said UCLA LB Myles Jack's knee is "more troubling in some ways" than Notre Dame LB Jaylon Smith's.

Apparently this medical professional believes Smith's knee will heal with time, while Jack's will get worse with time. The Myles Jack story line really is incredible, as on the field he is practically a unanimous top 10 selection. Jack could be selected in the second round, but no one knows at this moment.

Draft insider Tony Pauline passes along word that Wisconsin QB Joel Stave could be a third round pick.

Stave is terrible, so this is amazing. Pauline notes he has heard of late third round grades since the East West Shrine Game. Many teams hope to drafted third round grades in the fourth or fifth round, so keep that in mind. Stave is a "tools" prospect who has a very, very long way to go.

Panthers GM Dave Gettleman told the media seven teams called the Panthers about possibly trading into pick No. 30.

We are a bit surprised the Panthers did not bite on an offer, as they only have six picks in the draft. However, Vernon Butler's grade was just too high to pass up on. The Panthers were in a similar position last year and decided to trade up in round two for a receiver. That could be the case again on Friday.

Raven beat writer Jeff Zrebiec reports the team attempted to trade up to the No. 4 with the Cowboys to select FSU DB Jalen Ramsey.

Jerry Jones said the Ravens were attempting to move up for Elliott, but we think the Ramsey report makes more sense. Ramsey was expected to be picked at either No. 4 or No. 5, and the Ravens new this. There is not a Jalen Ramsey clone for the Ravens to target on the second day of the draft. He is a unique player.

Cardinals selected Ole Miss DL Robert Nkemdiche with the No. 29 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Nkemdiche (6'4/294) went to Ole Miss as the nation's No. 1 overall high school recruit, but managed only 6.5 career sacks in 34 starts. He was arrested for marijuana possession after drunkenly falling out of a hotel window last December. Nkemdiche was also accused of assault by a fellow student in 2014. An explosive athlete with plus arm length (33 7/8") and strength (28 bench-press reps), Nkemdiche looks like a potentially dominant interior pass rusher. His shortage of college production, suspect off-field decision making, and whispers of poor work ethic render him a classic boom-bust prospect.

Broncos selected Memphis QB Paxton Lynch with the No. 26 overall pick of the 2016 draft.

Lynch (6'7/244) started three years at Memphis, finishing his career with a 63.0 completion percentage, 7.36 YPA, 59:23 TD:INT ratio and 17 rushing scores. Lynch has huge hands (10 1/4") and high-level quarterback athleticism, running 4.86 with a 36-inch vertical. Big, mobile and over a year younger than Carson Wentz, Lynch's drawbacks consist of up-and-down ball placement resulting from technical flaws as a pocket passer and frustrating game-to-game consistency. Lynch has drawn some comparisons to Blake Bortles, and would benefit from a year on the bench, though he'll undoubtedly make rookie starts behind Mark Sanchez.

Vikings selected Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell with the No. 23 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Treadwell (6'2/221) needed only three years at Ole Miss to set a school record for receptions (202), parlaying them into 2,393 yards (11.8 YPR) and 21 career TDs. He was a first-team All-SEC pick as a 2015 junior. Treadwell won't turn 21 until a month and a half after the draft and offers room for growth despite unimpressive workout metrics, running 4.64 with a 33 1/2-inch vertical. Rather than speed and athleticism, Treadwell wins with length, body control, ball skills, and physicality after the catch. An ultra-competitive player, Treadwell will be a playmaking possession receiver in the NFL.

Dolphins selected Ole Miss LT Laremy Tunsil with the No. 13 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Tunsil (6'5/310) made 26 starts in three years at left tackle for Ole Miss, allowing zero sacks and five QB hurries in six games as a 2015 junior. He missed seven games last season due to a suspension for receiving improper benefits. Strong (34 bench-press reps) with 34 1/4" arms and blessed with elite left-tackle feet, Tunsil is ready to protect quarterbacks in the NFL and offers traits to develop into a high-level run blocker. Although he doesn't address an immediate need in Miami, Tunsil became a potentially great value from a talent standpoint when he slipped in the draft due to a social media mishap.

Buccaneers selected Florida CB Vernon Hargreaves with the No. 11 overall pick in the 2016 draft

Hargreaves (5'11/204) started 37 games in three seasons for the Gators, piling up 10 career interceptions and first-team All-SEC honors in his sophomore and junior years. Supremely young for a rookie, Hargreaves won't be of legal drinking age until June. Although Hargreaves ran a slightly underwhelming 4.50 forty in Indy, he showed explosion in the vertical (39") and broad (10'10") jumps before shining in agility tests. Possessing an elite combination of quicks, competitiveness, and ball skills, Hargreaves offers No. 1-cornerback potential.
Apr 28 - 9:38 PM

Jaguars selected Florida State CB Jalen Ramsey with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Ramsey (6'1/209) made 41 starts in three years at FSU, logging 15.5 career tackles for loss, 26 pass breakups, and three INTs. He earned second-team All-America in 2015, yielding just a 38.5% completion rate on throws into his coverage. Ramsey doubles as a track and field star and predictably blew up the Combine, running 4.41 with a 41 1/2-inch vertical and 11-foot-3 broad jump. Ramsey wasn't a dominant ballhawk in the ACC, but he offers an ideal blend of size, athleticism, and cover skills to become a high-end NFL starter at outside corner or free safety.

Eagles selected North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Despite their protestations, the Eagles knew they were taking the Bison quarterback all along. Wentz (6'5/237) made just 23 FCS starts, missing eight games as a senior due to a fractured wrist. He compiled a 20-3 record, 64.1 completion percentage, 8.36 YPA and 45:14 TD-to-INT ratio. A top-shelf athlete for the position, Wentz has an 81st-percentile SPARQ score and aced the Wonderlic with a 40. Wentz flashed NFL-level arm strength, ball location and deep-ball accuracy versus FCS competition, but needs a lot of work on his pocket mechanics and wasn't a dominant player in the Missouri Valley Conference. He also turns 24 late in his rookie season, whereas Jared Goff is still only 21. Wentz is flush with franchise-quarterback traits, but he may need a year on the bench before he's pro ready.
Apr 28 - 8:29 PM

Rams selected Cal QB Jared Goff with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Goff (6'4/215) made 37 starts in three seasons at Cal, completing 62.3% of his passes with a 7.78 YPA and 96:30 TD-to-INT ratio. His career record was 14-23, although Goff had very little around him. Goff's weaknesses are smallish hands (9") -- leading to 24 career fumbles -- a simplistic, shotgun-based college offense that could hinder Goff's NFL transition, and a tendency to play too fast with bodies around him. NFL Films' Greg Cosell has compared Goff's skill set to Matt Ryan's. Goff is the Rams' likely early-season starter, and could beat out Case Keenum to start Week 1.
