Citing a league source, Profootballtalk.com reports that Percy Harvin will skip all offseason activities so long as the Vikings haven't upgraded his contract.

This is the approach players seeking raises normally take. Per PFT, Harvin plans to sit out OTAs and minicamps as well as training camp if the Vikings don't meet his demands. The obvious alternative to paying Harvin would be for GM Rick Spielman to trade him to a club willing to commit eight figures per year and $30-plus million guaranteed. The financial implications are the main reason we don't expect Minnesota to receive a first-round pick for Harvin via trade.

Redskins selected TCU WR Josh Doctson with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

It's means one of Pierre Garcon or DeSean Jackson will be released, likely Garcon. Doctson (6'2/202) needed only three seasons at TCU to set school records in career receiving yards (2,785) and receiving TDs (29), averaging 15.5 yards per catch. Doctson made NFL teams drool at the Combine, blazing 4.5-flat with explosive vertical (41") and broad (10'11") jumps. The lone drawback on Doctson's profile is his age, turning 24 late in his rookie year. Docston is an elite athlete with plus size, a consistent winner in the contested-catch game, and one of the top vertical wideouts in this year's draft. He's drawn comparisons ranging from DeAndre Hopkins to Allen Robinson.

Texans traded up to select Notre Dame WR Will Fuller with the No. 21 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

They sent a sixth-round pick to Washington to move up one spot. Fuller (6'0/186) spent three years in South Bend -- two as a starter -- capping his career with 144 catches for 2,512 yards (17.44 YPR) and 30 TDs. Fuller confirmed his blazing deep speed in Indy by running 4.32, but also showed his limitations with a disappointing 33 1/2-inch vertical while measuring in with short arms (30 3/4") and tiny hands (8 1/4"). A small, finesse burner, Fuller has a place in the NFL as a "go-get-it" lid lifter, but his hands were an issue with 21 drops the past two seasons, and Fuller projects as a long-term low-volume target. He's likely to be a better real-life than fantasy player, especially opposite target hog DeAndre Hopkins in Houston.

Browns selected Baylor WR Corey Coleman with the No. 15 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

The Browns traded back from No. 2 to 8 to 15, stockpiled high-end picks, and still got the top receiver in the draft. Coleman (5'11/194) earned the 2015 Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top wideout, finishing his three-year career with a 173-3,009-33 receiving line and averaging 17.4 yards per catch. A freak athlete, Coleman blazed 4.40 at Baylor's Pro Day after posting a 40 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-9 broad jump at the Combine. There is some Odell Beckham to Coleman's game with the abilities to outrun coverage, outplay everyone else on the field, and pile up yards after catch with both strength and elusiveness. Coleman's drawbacks are his size and 17 drops the past two seasons. Either way, this is a dynamic playmaker with an outrageous ceiling.

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. Long (34 1/4"), strong (34 bench-press reps), 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. The Tunsil pick is a major threat to incumbent LT Branden Albert's roster security.

Bears traded up with the Bucs to select Georgia OLB Leonard Floyd with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Tampa Bay acquired a fourth-round pick to drop down to No. 11. Floyd (6'6/244) spent three years at UGA before going pro, amassing 28.5 tackles for loss, 17 sacks, and five forced fumbles across 32 starts. Floyd shredded the Combine, running 4.6-flat with a 39 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-7 broad jump. Floyd is a long-armed (33 1/8"), explosive edge rusher whose lanky frame and shortage of play strength evoked Keke Mingo and Dion Jordan comparisons from pre-draft skeptics. Floyd's traits are mouth watering, but he's a boom-bust prospect who could max out as a sub-package player. It's a risky, if high-ceiling pick by second-year GM Ryan Pace.

Titans traded up with the Browns to select Michigan State OT Jack Conklin with the No. 8 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

The Titans gave up No. 15 overall and No. 76 overall this year as well as a second-rounder next year to move up. Conklin (6'6/308) made 38 starts for the Spartans, logging 35 on the blind side and three at right tackle. He was chosen first-team All-Big Ten as a junior, before turning pro. Originally a walk-on, Conklin plays like it with a nasty on-field demeanor and a technically refined game. He tested out better than expected in Indy, running 5.0-flat with 25 bench-press reps despite vines for arms (35"). Conklin is the classic case of a tackle prospect who could hold his own on the left side in the pros, but potentially become a Pro Bowl right tackle. With Conklin a better fit on the right side, it looks like Taylor Lewan's job at left tackle is safe for now.

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. In Gus Bradley's defense, Ramsey will almost certainly start out as a press-man corner, competing for snaps with Prince Amukamara and Davon House.

Cowboys selected Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Fantasy players rejoice. Elliott (6'0/225) emerged from Carlos Hyde's shadow to carry the mail for two years in Columbus, finishing his career with 3,961 yards and 43 TDs on 592 carries (6.69 YPC), adding 58 receptions. Elliott turned in a rock-solid Combine, running 4.47 with a 9-foot-10 broad jump and 32 1/2-inch vertical. On tape, Elliott "runs hot" with fiery competitiveness, and consistently maintains balance with low pad level on contact. Also an NFL-ready pass blocker, Elliott repeatedly stood up Notre Dame's defensive line in blitz pickup during Ohio State's Fiesta Bowl win. An exceptionally young prospect, Elliott won't turn 21 until just before his first NFL training camp. With the Cowboys' elite offensive line in front of him, Elliott is a solid RB1 in redraft and worthy of the No. 1 overall pick in Dynasty rookie drafts.

Chargers selected Ohio State DE Joey Bosa with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Bosa (6'5/269) was one of the nation's most dominant pass rushers for the bulk of his college career, tallying 50.5 tackles for loss, 26 sacks, and five forced fumbles as a 37-game starter. Bosa's sacks dipped from 13.5 as a sophomore to 5.0 as a junior, but he commanded consistent double and triple teams and still won Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year for the second straight season. Bosa's long arms (33 3/8") are useful in run defense, and his Combine agility scores were elite, posting a running back-like 6.89 three-cone time while showing short-area explosion with a 10-foot broad jump. A power end in the mold of Saints DE Cameron Jordan, Bosa should be an instant impact rookie against both the run and pass.

Eagles selected North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 NFL 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 - 8:23 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. Although Ryan is not an elite NFL passer, he is a franchise quarterback. Goff will be a success if he reaches those heights. He's the Rams' likely early-season starter, and could quite possibly beat out Case Keenum to start Week 1.
