Hakeem Nicks (questionable, abdomen) practiced again Friday.

Nicks sat out Wednesday with what the Giants called a groin injury, though Nicks says it's more of an abdominal issue. Whatever it is, Nicks has already stated that he'll play against the Cowboys. He's on the WR2/3 radar.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan does not "envision" trading franchise-tagged DE Muhammad Wilkerson.

Because any team trading for him would want assurances on a long-term contract, this is not the kind of deal teams can work out while on the clock. With little trade action to this point, it is unlikely the Jets find an acceptable offer before the second-round opens Friday night. The two sides have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal, but it feels more likely Wilkerson plays out 2016 under the tag.

Broncos GM John Elway confirmed the team will no longer pursue Colin Kaepernick after drafting Memphis QB Paxton Lynch with the 26th overall pick.

They'll also be out of the running for Sam Bradford. The Kaepernick trade had legs a few weeks back but talks had died down recently and now the Broncos have a potential franchise quarterback in Lynch. It remains to be seen if Kaepernick can patch things up with San Francisco after demanding a trade earlier this offseason. Per Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, some teams think the 49ers will simply cut him.

49ers traded up with the Chiefs to select Stanford G Josh Garnett with the No. 28 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

The 49ers gave up a fourth- and a sixth-rounder this year to move up from the No. 37 overall pick. Garnett (6'4/312) earned the 2015 Outland Trophy as the nation's top interior lineman, also taking home the Morris Trophy as Pac-12 Lineman of the Year. Garnett is built ideally for a guard with 33 7/8-inch arms, big hands (10 1/8"), and a strong base, and on tape exhibits powerful hole-clearing traits. Garnett's struggles primarily occur in pass protection due to athletic deficiencies. At present, he's best utilized as a phone-booth run blocker. Trading back into the first round to take a guard is an unconventional move, but the 49ers offense projects to be one of the most run-heavy in the league.

Broncos traded up with the Seahawks to select Memphis QB Paxton Lynch with the No. 26 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

The Broncos are shipping the Nos. 31 and 94 picks to Seattle for the right to move up five spots. Lynch's selection means neither Colin Kaepernick nor Ryan Fitzpatrick will be Denver bound. 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, frustrating game-to-game consistency and questionable intelligence after managing an 18 on the Wonderlic. Lynch has drawn some comparisons to Blake Bortles. Although Mark Sanchez remains Denver's probable Week 1 starter, we'd expect Lynch to make starts as a rookie.

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.

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.
