Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said he's looking for bulkier, more powerful interior offensive linemen this offseason.

C Gino Gradkowski checks in at 6-foot-3, 300 pounds and figures to be the most likely interior line member to be replaced. LG Kelechi Osemele (6-foot-5, 330) was sidelined for much of the year with a back injury, and RG Marshal Yanda (6-foot-3, 305) is one of the better guards in the league. Gradkowski had a terrible season. Arkansas' Travis Swanson (6-foot-4, 318) is widely considered the top center prospect in the 2014 draft and could be a first- or second-round pick.

According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, if the Patriots trade Malcolm Butler to the Saints, "this is the week for it to happen."

Reiss believes it will come down to whether the Saints are willing to trade the No. 32 overall pick (which they received from the Patriots in last month's Brandin Cooks trade) or No. 42 and another pick with New England throwing in a late-rounder. Per Reiss, the Patriots "don't have any qualms" in keeping Butler around at his $3.91 million salary. Butler was a second-team All-Pro selection in 2016 and graded out as PFF's No. 5 corner out of 119 qualifiers.

Washington's John Ross garnered 6-of-16 first-place votes from NFL scouts polled on this year's top wide receiver prospect.

He got more first-place votes than Western Michigan's Corey Davis (5 1/2) and Clemson's Mike Williams (4 1/2), although Davis emerged as the No. 1 "points" getter in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's poll, which used scouts' rankings and not just first-place votes. The points system placed East Carolina's Zay Jones at a distant fourth in this year's wideout class, and USC's JuJu Smith-Schuster at fifth. Eastern Washington's Cooper Kupp finished sixth, Ohio State's Curtis Samuel seventh, and Texas A&M's Josh Reynolds came in eighth. "It's the worst wide receiver class I've seen in a long time," said one NFC executive.

14-of-16 NFL scouts polled by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel named Alabama's O.J. Howard this year's top draft-eligible tight end.

Howard crushed the field, as Miami's David Njoku finished a distant second with just one first-place vote and Ole Miss WR/TE Evan Engram garnered the final first-place vote. The Journal-Sentinel used a "points" system based on the scouts' 1-5 rankings. That "points" system resulted in Howard at No. 1, Njoku at No. 2, Engram at No. 3, South Alabama's Gerald Everett at No. 4, and injured Jake Butt of Michigan at No. 5 among draft-eligible tight ends.

Falcons re-signed WR Taylor Gabriel to a one-year, $2.81 million contract.

He had been a restricted free agent. Cut by the Browns at the end of training camp last summer, Gabriel resurfaced as a big-play threat in Atlanta with seven touchdowns on only 39 touches. The 26-year-old should again be a key cog in the Falcons high-octane offense.

The Bills have until Monday to match the Patriots' two-year, $6.4 million offer to RFA Mike Gillislee.

The Bills immediately bowed out when Chris Hogan signed an offer sheet with New England last offseason, but that hasn't happened this time around. ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss says his "gut feeling" is that Buffalo will match the offer, though he expects the Bills to "take this right up to the deadline." The Bills would net a fifth-round pick if Gillislee winds up in Foxboro.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie implied that the draft is the team's deadline for signing Marshawn Lynch.

"At some point, you would like to know," said McKenzie. "Prior to the draft is that point." Coach Jack Del Rio said "every indication" is that Lynch is "excited" to play for Raiders, but the sides still have a few hurdles to clear before a deal is reached. Once that happens, the Raiders and Seahawks will have to agree on compensation. Talks should pick up in the coming days now that Oakland has established a firm timeline for signing Lynch.

In a poll of 17 NFL executives done by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, nine voted Utah OT Garett Bolles this year's No. 1 draft-eligible offensive lineman.

Wisconsin OT Ryan Ramczyk garnered five first-place votes, while Alabama OT Cam Robinson garnered two, and Western Kentucky G/C Forrest Lamp got one. Bolles played one year of Division-1 college football and turns 25 in May. Ramczyk also played only one year of D-1 ball and is recovering from hip surgery. Robinson is expected to convert to right tackle or guard. "It’s really going down," one AFC personnel man said regarding offensive line play around the league. "This year('s class) is really disappointing."

Texans GM Rick Smith said he doesn't feel pressure to draft a quarterback in the first round.

"I don't feel pressure," said Smith. "At some point, we're going to add a quarterback." Even if the Texans do select a quarterback early in the draft, there's no guarantee that he would start out of the gate. "It's difficult to play quarterback as a rookie in this league," said Smith. "It's rare that you get a guy to play at high level early, but it's possible." For what it's worth, Smith said the Texans are "comfortable" entering the year with Tom Savage as the starting quarterback.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora "continues to hear" that coach Hue Jackson and his staff is "all in" on Myles Garrett at No. 1, but the front office and owner Jimmy Haslam is leaning more toward Mitchell Trubisky.

The "owner badly wants a QB," according to La Canfora. Haslam was said to be the one who banged the table for Johnny Manziel a couple years back, and that obviously backfired terribly. Maybe Haslam should consider refraining from meddling in personnel decisions and try and let his staff turn around this franchise. However, it sounds like the front office is also in his corner on this one, wanting a potential franchise passer. Garrett is a legitimate game-changer, and the "football guys," as in the coaching staff, know it. EVP Sashi Brown spoke earlier this week and hinted the pick will either be Garrett or Trubisky.

Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski thinks "it would make a lot of sense" for the Eagles to trade Jordan Matthews.

Kempski doesn't expect the Eagles to give Matthews an extension at any point, and he's entering the final year of his deal. If GM Howie Roseman is opposed to an extension, then he has two choices: trade Matthews for a potential Day 2 pick or let him play out his deal and possibly land a third-round compensatory pick for 2019. Matthews and newbies Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith are all essentially on one-year pacts, so Philly could overhaul the WR spot again in 2018.

Speaking in a Thursday radio interview, Seahawks GM John Schneider downplayed the chances of Richard Sherman getting traded.

"Right now, I don't think the odds are very good," Schneider said. "But if somebody comes cruising along and something happens, and we do something, it happens." Schneider is correct that a trade remains unlikely, but it's remarkable how openly the Seahawks continue to talk about dealing their star corner. We wouldn't rule anything out ahead of next week's draft.
