Auburn redshirt junior WR Sammie Coates tops Fox Sports columnist Bruce Feldman's "Freaks List."

"Asked about Coates' 40-time, Russell said they use hand times (which are often faster than electronic times) and they clocked him eight times, dropped out the highest and lowest and said he was at 4.25. Coates' vertical jump: 44 inches. He benches 405 pounds," Feldman writes. From a production standpoint, Coates posted 902 yards and seven touchdowns on 42 receptions in an offense that stresses their running game and play action passes off of it.

Redskins selected Alabama DL Jonathan Allen with the No. 17 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Allen (6’3/286) won the 2016 Nagurski, Bednarik, and Hendricks awards as the nation’s top defensive player and defensive end, finishing No. 2 in Alabama history in sacks (28.5) and earning SEC Defensive Player of the Year as a senior. Allen was the best player on the nation’s best defense. Experienced at end, tackle, and even outside ‘backer, Allen has a "tweener" build but rare versatility and a non-stop motor, defending the run stoutly in addition to disrupting the pass. A projected top-ten pick in most circles, Allen’s history of shoulder injuries caused him to slip. If healthy, he projects as a "clean," high-floor NFL down lineman with immediate-impact potential. Allen will likely be an interior rusher in Washington's 3-4 scheme, upgrading one of the league's least-talented defensive lines.

Texans selected Clemson QB Deshaun Watson with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft

Houston gave up No. 25 pick and their 2018 first-rounder to move up. Cleveland now owns the Texans' first- and second-round picks next year. Watson (6’3/221) made 35 starts in three years at Clemson, leading the Tigers to a 32-3 record and twice winning the Davey O’Brien Award as college football’s top quarterback. He completed 67.4% of his passes with an 8.4 YPA and 90:32 TD-to-INT ratio. An 81st-percentile athlete, Watson added 26 rushing TDs at 4.4 yards per carry. While Watson was a prolific college player, his accuracy and velocity are questionable with sub-baseline 45 MPH ball speed and a tendency to poorly locate passes. He managed a 20 Wonderlic score and has a reputation as a one-read quarterback who doesn’t play comfortably from the pocket. NFL Films’ Greg Cosell has likened Watson to Alex Smith. A polarizing prospect, Watson should get to prove his worth very early as the likely Week 1 starter in Houston.

Chiefs selected Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes with the No. 10 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Tired of the Alex Smith era, the Chiefs have surrendered picks No. 27 and 91 along with their 2018 first-rounder to take a shot on a quarterback of the future. Mahomes (6’2/225) made 29 starts for the Red Raiders, posting a career 13-16 record with a 63.5% completion rate, 8.3 yards-per-attempt average, and 93:29 TD-to-INT ratio. Mahomes’ father Pat was an 11-year major league pitcher, mostly with the Twins. On tape, Mahomes’ strengths are his cannon arm and velocity with an ability to make plays amid chaos. Mahomes’ weaknesses are shoddy footwork and a tendency to veer from structure as a natural-born gunslinger who lacks discipline but plays with extreme aggressiveness. A 4.0 college student, Mahomes’ smarts and skill set are in no doubt. He is a classic boom-bust prospect with a top-five NFL quarterback ceiling.

Panthers selected Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey with the No. 8 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft

He had been consistently linked with the Panthers over the last couple weeks, and he is a great fit under creative OC Mike Shula. McCaffrey (5’11/202) turned pro after a prolific three-year college career, posting a 632-3,922-21 (6.21 YPC) rushing line with 99 catches and two return TDs. He was the 2015 Pac 12 Offensive Player of the Year before a mildly disappointing 2016 campaign. At the Combine, McCaffrey posted top-four SPARQ results among running backs with a 4.48 forty and position-best 6.57 three-cone time. The top blitz-pickup back in this class, McCaffrey should be an immediate passing-game asset even if he doesn’t project as a 300-carry workhorse. Even with Jonathan Stewart still in Carolina, McCaffrey should immediately contribute in the running game, passing game, and as a returner. H

Jaguars selected LSU RB Leonard Fournette with the No. 4 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft.

Needing to upgrade their running game to help embattled starter Blake Bortles, the Jaguars have been linked with Fournette for most of the pre-draft process. Standing 6-foot-1, 240 pounds, Fournette arrived in Baton Route as the nation’s No. 1 recruit and met expectations with a career 616-3,830-40 (6.22 YPC) rushing line, turning pro as LSU’s all-time leader in yards per carry and No. 2 in yards from scrimmage per game (155.7). A hulking downhill runner with 4.51 speed, Fournette’s limitations come in the passing game, where he dropped 8-of-48 catchable targets as a Tiger. He also battled a recurring left ankle injury in 2016, suffering repeated setbacks and missing 6-of-13 games. When healthy, Fournette has drawn comparisons to Bo Jackson and Herschel Walker as a size-speed freak. His arrival is bad news for Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon with Ivory projecting to take the biggest hit.

Bears selected North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Trubisky (6’2/222) sat behind 2016 Packers camp arm Marquise Williams his first two seasons at UNC before taking the starting reigns as a redshirt junior last season and leading the Tar Heels to an 8-5 mark with school records in passing yards (3,748) and touchdowns (30). A plus athlete with 4.67 speed, Trubisky added five rushing TDs and is a legitimate scrambling threat. On tape, Trubisky impresses as a tough competitor with a quick release, but he showed a tendency to get squeamish when pressured and made only 13 college starts. The small sample makes him a frightening prospect. Nevertheless, Trubisky looks the part of a potential mid-range NFL starter with Ryan Tannehill-level tools.

Browns selected Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Garrett (6’5/272) arrived in College Station as a top-two high school recruit and spent his full three-year career as the Aggies’ best player, amassing 48.5 tackles for loss, 32.5 sacks, and seven forced fumbles. Garrett ruined SEC offensive schemes with a fierce bull rush, lightning-quick inside spin move, and incredible burst off the snap. He also received strong run-defense grades from PFF College. A complete edge defender with basketball-player athleticism, Garrett crushed the vertical (41"), broad jump (10’8"), bench (33), forty (4.64), and Wonderlic (31) at the Combine. After dominating college football at its highest level, Garrett should give the Browns a long-term difference maker at one of the highest-value positions.

Bills beat writer Matthew Fairburn reports that "those around the league expect Texas Tech QB [Pat] Mathomes to go top-10."

Fairburn additionally reports that the Chiefs "have entertained" a potential trade up from No. 27 in order to obtain Mahomes' services, as they are "known to love him." A top-10 slot would be even higher than that floated by the gunslinger's own agent, as Leigh Steinberg said earlier this week that the Cardinals at No. 13 would be his client's probable ceiling. A report on NFL Network cited a source close to Mahomes late on Thursday as saying that the quarterback would likely be going to either the Chiefs, Texans or Cardinals.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that there is a belief that UCLA edge rusher Takkarist McKinley (shoulder) may have to start the season on the non-football injury list.

Should McKinley not be healthy enough to start the season -- he underwent surgery after the Combine to repair a torn labrum and a glenoid fracture -- a stay on the NFI list would rule him out for the first six games of the 2017 season. It is not a given that he will be sidelined, though, as according to Rapoport, "some believe he has a chance to be ready for the season." McKinley could potentially fall off the board as early as the back-end of Thursday's first round.

The Browns will select Texas A&M EDGE Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Cabot cites "multiple league sources." Rumors have swirled over the past 24 hours that the Browns would audible off Garrett to take UNC's Mitch Trubisky at No. 1. Numerous plugged-in draft writers (Mel Kiper, Todd McShay and Bob McGinn, to name three) predicted just that in their final mock drafts. While it might appear that cooler heads have prevailed here, Cabot wrote that "some [in the Browns' brass] have known for a while that Garrett was the pick." The Browns are currently trying to trade back into the top-10, from No. 12, to acquire Trubisky. Between the No. 33 overall pick (the first in Round 2) and three second-round picks in 2018, Cleveland has plenty of trade ammunition.
Apr 27 - 4:45 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that some teams believe that Washington WR John Ross may slip to the second round due to health concerns.

Per Rap Sheet, "There are a handful of boards [Ross] is off, sources say. Other teams wonder if he'll fall into the late-first round or early second round because of his injury history." The 5-foot-11, 188-pound speedster has undergone surgeries on both knees due to a torn miniscus and a torn ACL and also underwent shoulder surgery following the Combine last month. One person close to Ross' camp told Rapoport that "there is nothing new that has showed up" during the process, though that might not prevent a potential slip down.
