ESPN's Joe Banner singled out Chiefs co-director of player personnel Brett Veach as a name to watch in the Bills' GM search.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport also mentioned Veach as a possibility. Veach and Mike Borgonzi are Chiefs GM John Dorsey's new righthand men after Chris Ballard left to take the Colts' GM job earlier this offseason. Veach is a relative unknown, but has risen up the ranks and spent time with coach Andy Reid in Philadelphia when Bills coach Sean McDermott was on Reid's staff.

Saints signed Miami (OH) OT Collin Buchanan.

Buchanan (6’5/316) made 32 starts as the RedHawks’ right tackle, earning second-team All-MAC honors as a senior. A poor athlete with short arms (32 5/8"), Buchanan’s on-field play was inconsistent throughout college. He’ll have to show position versatility to earn a swing-reserve role in the pros.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports the Packers "came close" to trading Brett Hundley on Day 2 of the draft.

With Aaron Rodgers still at the top of his game, Hundley won't be seeing the field anytime soon in Green Bay. It looks like Hundley is staying put for now but Demovsky still expects the Packers to move him before he enters his contract year in 2018. Hundley has logged just 27 snaps since arriving as a fifth-round pick in 2015.

Colts signed Akron WR Jerome Lane.

Lane (6’3/226) turned pro as a redshirt junior after converting from linebacker to wideout for his final two college seasons, tallying a career 101-1,800-14 (17.8 YPR) receiving line and topping 100 yards in 4-of-12 games last year. Lane turned more heads with 76th-percentile SPARQ results at the Combine. The son of a former first-round NBA pick, Lane is a freaky athlete for his size and has natural hands, committing only four drops in 2016. Lane will likely focus on special teams initially, but he offers longer-range upside as an H-back/slot/red-zone presence.
Apr 30 - 12:39 PM

Eagles signed Shepherd WR Billy Brown.

Brown (6’4/255) was a man amongst boys in the D-2 ranks, setting school records in receptions (249), receiving yards (4,071), and touchdowns (43) and catching a whopping 22 TDs in 14 games as a senior. Brown has long arms (33") and big hands (10 3/8") and offers intriguing pass-catching potential as an H-back/tight end. He ran 4.7-flat at the Combine. An oversized wideout at Shepherd, Brown will have to learn to block from scratch as an in-line player. He’s likely ticked for the practice squad or game-day inactives list in year one.
Apr 30 - 12:28 PM

Giants signed USC OT Chad Wheeler.

Wheeler (6’7/306) was a four-year starter at left tackle for the Trojans, guarding Cody Kessler’s blind side before protecting Sam Darnold as a senior. Wheeler’s injury history is brutal, however. He underwent shoulder surgery as a high school senior and missed five games with torn knee ligaments as a college sophomore. Wheeler tested as a putrid, second-percentile athlete at the Combine, also measuring in with short arms (33 1/8") relative to his size. In a best-case scenario, Wheeler would become a usable swing tackle in the pros. He’s a poor man’s Tyler Polumbus.
Apr 30 - 12:08 PM

Jets signed Tulsa QB Dane Evans.

Evans (6’0/210) made 43 starts for the Golden Hurricane, managing a career 57.3% completion rate, 7.4 YPA, and 84:47 TD-to-INT ratio. A streaky and often erratic passer with a strong arm, Evans played in a simplistic one-read college offense that manufactured big plays off play action, and is significantly dissimilar from a pro-style attack. Evans is also short by NFL quarterback standards and ran a 5.03 forty before the draft. Still, the tools are there for Evans to make a run at a backup job, possibly after spending a year or two on a practice squad.
Apr 30 - 12:04 PM

Jets signed Washington State WR Gabe Marks.

Marks (5’11/189) was a four-year starter at Wazzou, graduating as the Pac 12’s all-time leader in receptions (316) and scoring 37 touchdowns with a 10.9 yards-per-catch average. Marks’ athletic limitations were exposed at the Combine with seventh-percentile SPARQ results, short arms (30 3/8"), and small hands (8 ¾"). Marks failed to make defenders miss after the catch in college, forcing only four missed tackles on 89 receptions in 2016. Marks is slot receiver prospect with a low NFL ceiling.
Apr 30 - 12:02 PM

Seahawks signed Ole Miss CB Tony Bridges.

Bridges (6’0/188) spent two years at Ole Miss after transferring from JUCO, making 17 starts and intercepting three passes as a junior. Demoted as a senior, Bridges ended his college career on a disappointing note after earning NFL notice his first year in Oxford. He is also old for a rookie, turning 24 in October. Not invited to the Combine, Bridges managed a 4.58 forty at the Rebels’ Pro Day, also struggling in the three-cone drill (7.12). Bridges looks like a long shot for a meaningful NFL future.
Apr 30 - 11:36 AM

Rams signed USC RB Justin Davis.

Davis (6’1/208) was a committee back for most of his college career, graduating with a 461-2,465-19 (5.35 YPC) rushing line and 46 receptions. Plagued by recurring ankle woes from his freshman season on, Davis showed limited ability to beat first contact and struggled in pass protection. PFF College charged Davis with ten QB pressures allowed on just 36 blocking snaps in 2016, easily the worst ratio in this year’s running back class. Davis was also prone to drops and fumbles at USC. Ultimately, Davis is a replacement-level back who could conceivably compile stats if given an extended opportunity, but seems unlikely to get one.
Apr 30 - 11:31 AM

Rams signed Colorado State LB Kevin Davis.

Davis (6’2/235) made 27 starts for the CSU Rams, compiling 27 career tackles for loss with seven sacks and four forced fumbles. He earned second-team All-Mountain West as a senior. Undersized for an NFL inside linebacker and not athletic enough to run and chase from the outside, Davis managed a 4.91 forty in Indy. His big-league ticket is special teams, where Davis did shine early in his college career. On defense, Davis would do well to emerge as a reliable fourth linebacker or spot-starter type.
Apr 30 - 11:29 AM

Vikings signed TCU OT Aviante Collins.

Collins (6’4/295) made 37 starts in five years with the Horned Frogs, missing most of his fifth-year junior season with a leg injury before returning to start all 13 games as a senior. Collins dabbled at left tackle early in his career but settled in at right tackle in 2016. He got a significant bump at the Combine, blazing a freakish 4.81 forty with 34 reps on the bench. Collins’ long history of injuries and inconsistency make him a project whose versatility and movement skills will work in his favor.
Apr 30 - 11:24 AM

Redskins signed Michigan OG Kyle Kalis.

Kalis (6’4/306) made 43 career starts on the Wolverines’ line, earning second-team All-Big Ten as a senior. Not invited to the Combine despite being a fairly well-known college player, Kalis hinted why with a poor Pro Day workout, testing as a fifth-percentile athlete with severely below-par movement numbers. Kalis is considered a tough, heady prospect with advanced technique, but he will have to overcome some pretty fundamental talent limitations to become more than a camp body.
Apr 30 - 11:09 AM

Giants signed Tennessee State OG Jessamen Dunker.

Dunker (6’4/318) made 43 starts for the TSU Tigers, shuttling between guard and tackle before settling in on the blind side as a senior. He earned first-team FCS All-America in 2016. Originally a Florida commit, Dunker transferred after a series of 2013 arrests, the most serious involving grand theft of a motor vehicle. Dunker stayed out of trouble in the small-school ranks. A plus athlete who will move inside in the pros, Dunker’s biggest drawback is his shortage of core strength, which limits his run-blocking prowess. He best profiles as a zone-scheme guard.
Apr 30 - 11:06 AM

Cowboys signed Oklahoma State TE Blake Jarwin.

Jarwin (6’5/246) was a two-year starter at "Cowboy back" in OSU’s offense, managing a career 41-616-5 (15.0 YPR) receiving line but still earning first-team All-Big 12 from the conference’s coaches as a junior, and second team as a senior. A former walk-on who wasn’t invited to the Combine, Jarwin showed NFL-level athleticism at the Cowboys’ Pro Day with 4.73 speed and a 10-foot-1 broad jump. Not a featured part of OSU’s offense, Jarwin operated as a movement H-back and short-area possession receiver. Long armed (34") with soft hands and plus versatility, Jarwin nevertheless offers Jacob Tamme-like traits as a potential No. 2 tight end.
