  • Arians: J.J. Nelson is like Emmanuel Sanders
    Cardinals coach Bruce Arians likened No. 159 overall pick J.J. Nelson to Emmanuel Sanders.

    Advice: Arians, of course, coached Sanders in Pittsburgh. Sanders was also smallish coming out of college -- 5'11/186 -- but not nearly as small as Nelson, whose Pro Day weigh-in was 5'10/156. The odds are stacked against Nelson making NFL noise as a receiver. We do expect him to be an impact return specialist. Rotoworld.com

  • Perriman: Drops a concentration issue
    First-round Ravens WR Breshad Perriman believes most of his college drops were the result of "lapses in concentration.

    Advice: As in, he believes it's something he can fix. Perriman muffed eight passes for UCF in 2014. "It's something I have a chip on my shoulder about," Perriman said. "At the end of the day, I know what I have to do and I know that I can catch." We're not overly concerned about Perriman's hands, though Kelvin Benjamin was a reminder last season that college-drop issues don't get better overnight. Rotoworld.com

  • Maxx to 'work in tandem' with Gillmore
    The Baltimore Sun expects second-round TE Maxx Williams to "work in tandem" with Crockett Gillmore.

    Advice: As in, Gillmore will throw the blocks and Williams will catch the passes. That's over-simplifying it a bit, as Williams can do a little blocking and Gillmore a little catching, but Williams will be counted on to make plays as a receiver. The No. 99 overall pick of last year's draft, Gillmore caught 10 passes in 15 games behind Owen Daniels and Dennis Pitta. Pitta's (hip) health is the reason Baltimore needed Williams in the first place. Rotoworld.com

  • Stefon Diggs set to contribute from slot
    ESPN Vikings reporter Ben Goessling believes fifth-round WR Stefon Diggs will contribute more from the slot than outside.

    Advice: Diggs is certainly built like a slot receiver, checking in at 6-foot-0, 195 pounds. Diggs was expected to be a playmaker all over the field at Maryland, but was hampered by injuries. He has adequate speed at 4.46. Diggs could have a hard time earning targets as a rookie. Mike Wallace and Charles Johnson have the outside on lock, while Jarius Wright is capable in the slot. Cordarrelle Patterson is still hanging around as a supposed playmaker. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The Jets are uncertain of Ridley's camp status, so it's hard to believe it didn't at least enter Maccagnan's mind. Neither the Jets nor fantasy owners can be counting on Ridley to avoid the reserve/PUP list. Ridley is five and a half months removed from going under the knife. Rotoworld.com

One of many running backs Jeff Fisher's Rams have taken early in the draft, Pead has been by far the least successful. The No. 50 overall selection of the 2012 draft has zero career touchdowns.

    Advice: The Cardinals did not come away with the true big back everyone expected them to. Instead, they took Northern Iowa's David Johnson -- another back that specializes in the receiving game. It's insurance behind Ellington, not someone that will threaten to steal a big chunk of work. "The nice thing David can do is he can do everything Andre does, so you don’t have to change if there was an injury," Arians said. It's a clear win for Ellington stockholders in fantasy.

    Director of College Scouting Kyle O’Brien said the Jaguars envision Rashad Greene as a slot receiver, though he could "compete for time on the outside."

    Advice: Greene ran an underwhelming 4.53 at the Combine and isn't athletic enough to be a home run threat. However, his sure hands and precise route-running make him a dangerous weapon as a slot receiver. Greene brings a winner's mentality from his time at Florida State. He could be asked to return kicks for Jacksonville. Rotoworld.com

Though it's unlikely Darren McFadden and Joseph Randle will approach those same heights, the Cowboys' line should open up holes for them while keeping quarterback Tony Romo on his feet.

    Advice: Nelson (5'10/156) was a dynamic return specialist at UAB, earning the 2015 Jet Award as the nation's premier kickoff returner. He led Division I in kick return average (38.3 yards) and scored four TDs, one shy of the NCAA record. As Nelson runs 4.28 with lower-body explosion (10-foot-7 broad jump), he should translate smoothly on returns. He's unlikely to offer much to an NFL offense. Rotoworld.com

  • Packers add project QB Brett Hundley at 147
    Packers traded up to select UCLA QB Brett Hundley with the No. 147 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

    Advice: Green Bay included a 7th, No. 247, to move up. Hundley (6'3/226) made 40 starts as a Bruin, completing 67.6 percent of his passes with a 75:25 TD-to-INT ratio and 30 more rushing scores. He absorbed a whopping 125 sacks in three college seasons, also fumbling 29 times. Although Hundley is strong armed and a terrific athlete, he showed zero feel for the pocket at UCLA and completed an abysmal 32.6 percent of his throws on the run. Smart (26 Wonderlic) with NFL-caliber tools, Hundley is a multi-year project who needs to ride the bench for at least a season or two, and will be afforded that time with the Packers. Rotoworld.com

    Vikings selected Maryland WR Stefon Diggs with the No. 146 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

He posted 2,227 yards and 14 TDs on 150 catches (14.8 YPR), missing time due to a suspension, lacerated kidney, and fractured leg. Diggs clocked 4.46 at the Combine, but disappointed in the vertical (35") and broad (9'7") jumps. Diggs will have to earn his NFL keep as a sub-package receiver and on special teams, where he returned two kickoffs for touchdowns in college. Rotoworld.com

Highly athletic, Pruitt blew up the Combine with a 4.58 forty, 38-inch vertical, and standout agility scores. A more athletic version of Charles Clay, Pruitt is built to be a playmaking H-back and showed competitiveness as a college blocker. In Minnesota, Pruitt will open his career behind Kyle Rudolph, Rhett Ellison, and Chase Ford. Rotoworld.com

    Jaguars selected Florida State WR Rashad Greene with the No. 139 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

    Advice: Greene joins Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns, Marqise Lee and potentially Justin Blackmon in a receiver corps the Jags have aggressively addressed the past few seasons. Greene (5'11/182) was a first-team All-ACC pick as both a junior and senior, setting FSU all-time records in receptions (270) and receiving yards (3,830). He scored 32 TDs in college, including two on punt returns as a sophomore. Limited athletically for his skinny build, Greene ran 4.53 at the Combine with a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump. One of the most refined route runners in the 2015 receiver class, Greene projects as a Doug Baldwin-ian slot receiver. He's at his best working the middle of the field. His arrival is trouble for Ace Sanders. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: After Harry Douglas departed in free agency, the Falcons might have just drafted his replacement. Hardy (5'10/192) originally walked on at ECU, yet went on to break Ryan Broyles' record for most receptions in NCAA history (387), parlaying them into 4,541 yards (11.7 YPR) and 35 TDs. A pedestrian athlete, Hardy ran 4.56 at the Combine with a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-6 broad jump. He does have big hands (10") and an excellent three-cone time (6.63). A quicker-than-fast chain mover, Hardy projects as a slot receiver only in the pros. He doesn't have the skill set to win on the perimeter. Rotoworld.com

  • Bears add depth behind Matt Forte in Langford
    Bears selected Michigan State RB Jeremy Langford with the No. 106 overall pick in the 2015 draft.

    Advice: Langford (6'0/208) succeeded Le'Veon Bell as the Spartans' bellcow, rushing 577 times for 2,967 yards (5.14 YPC) and 40 TDs. He added 39 receptions in his college career. Langford ran the fastest forty (4.42) among running backs at the Combine, but had pedestrian numbers in the broad jump (9'10") and three-cone drill (4.22). Langford doesn't play as fast as he timed and lacks tackle-breaking ability, which severely curtails his chances of becoming a lead NFL back. He does have soft hands and is a willing pass blocker, so perhaps Langford will carve out a career on passing downs. He'll compete with Ka'Deem Carey and Jacquizz Rodgers for reps behind contract-year workhorse Matt Forte. Rotoworld.com

He has a 37-inch vertical and 10-foot-3 broad jump. A quicker-than-fast slot receiver with return value, Crowder has been compared to Harry Douglas by SI's Doug Farrar. Rotoworld.com

    Ravens traded up with the Cardinals to select Minnesota TE Maxx Williams with the No. 55 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

    Advice: Baltimore surrendered their Nos. 58 and 158 picks to jump up three spots. Williams (6'4/249) made 17 starts in two seasons with the Gophers, parlaying 61 catches into 986 yards (16.2 YPR) and 13 TDs. He was the 2014 Big Ten Tight End of the Year and a second-team All American. A flex/move tight end who also blocks competently, Williams' game reminds of old Ravens TE Todd Heap, although Williams tested in the Brent Celek range with a 4.78 forty and 34 1/2-inch vertical at the Combine. Still an at-times dynamic receiving threat, Williams has huge hands (10 3/8") and long arms (33 1/2"), and can win with power or finesse. He's quality insurance should Dennis Pitta not make it back from his severe hip injury. Williams is sure to see the field a decent amount as a rookie. Rotoworld.com

  • Colts draft speedster Dorsett at No. 29 pick
    Colts selected Miami WR Phillip Dorsett with the No. 29 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

    Advice: Dorsett (5'10/185) made 30 career starts for the 'Canes, parlaying 121 receptions into 2,132 yards (17.6 YPR) and 17 TDs. He blazed 4.33 in Indianapolis with a 37-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump. A blur on game tape, Dorsett is more lid popper than quick-twitch slot receiver, and has some DeSean Jacksonian traits. Dorsett's size deficiency may prevent him from becoming a big-time touchdown scorer in the pros, but he will be able to outrun coverage and has excellent hands, dropping just 3-of-73 targets as a senior. Quarterback play and offensive philosophy will be working in Dorsett's favor with the Colts, but opportunity may not. He appears to be buried behind T.Y. Hilton, Andre Johnson, and Donte Moncrief. Dorsett is a classic "luxury pick" who may have to excel on kickoff returns to earn significant rookie-year snaps. Rotoworld.com

  • Ravens replace Torrey with Breshad Perriman
    Ravens selected UCF WR Breshad Perriman with the No. 26 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

    Advice: Perriman (6'2/212) spent three seasons at UCF, parlaying 115 catches into 2,243 yards (19.5 YPR) with 16 TDs. He is the son of ex-Lions WR Brett Perriman. Breshad's stock soared at his March Pro Day, blazing 4.26 with a 10-foot-7 broad jump and 36 1/2-inch vertical. Likened to Julio Jones in terms of "size and movement" by Greg Cosell, Perriman has the quickness of a small receiver in a big receiver's body and will be able to run by NFL defensive backs. The lone concern on Perriman is his hands after he dropped 8-of-54 catchable targets in 2014, although abysmal quarterback play frequently forced Perriman to make absurd adjustments to passes. He'll immediately replace Torrey Smith as Steve Smith's complement in new OC Marc Trestman's pass-happy offense, bringing serious statistical upside to the table. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Pead is eight months removed from ACL surgery. When healthy, he’ll be no higher than the No. 4 back. The Rams can save $941,000 by releasing Pead. Rotoworld.com

  • Mark Sanchez calls Tim Tebow a camp arm
    Mark Sanchez said the Eagles signed Tim Tebow as a camp arm while Sam Bradford recovers from his knee injury.

    Advice: "He's obviously a great guy, he works hard. And we needed another guy to throw while Sam's still recovering," Sanchez said. It is always exciting when the Sanchez-Tebow circus comes to town. Of course, if the Eagles really just wanted a guy to throw while Bradford was sidelined, they would have signed someone who could actually throw. Tebow's chances of making the final roster are slim, but he would not be on the roster if coach Chip Kelly thought he was nothing more than a camp arm. Rotoworld.com

  • Andre Ellington 95 percent over foot injury
    Speaking Thursday, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Andre Ellington was "95 percent recovered" from his foot injury.

    Advice: Ellington is also in the final stages of his recovery from sports-hernia surgery. Ellington was a breakout candidate last season, but wasn't the same after injuring his foot in a Week 1 practice. A disappointing campaign followed, and now the Cardinals are openly pursuing a bigger back. There's a chance Ellington's 2015 fantasy appeal is limited to PPR leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Eagles view Tebow as QB, nothing else
    Personnel executive Ed Marynowitz confirmed the Eagles see Tim Tebow as a quarterback only.

    Advice: As expected, there's been chatter Chip Kelly will find a role for Tebow as a short-yardage back, tight end or H-back. But he will compete as a quarterback, where the No. 3 job behind Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez is unsettled. "We brought Tim in for a workout and obviously we were intrigued with what we saw there," Marynowtiz said. "He had improved since the last time we saw him here, which was with New England." Online sportsbook Bovada has installed Tebow as -200 favorite to get cut before Week 1. Rotoworld.com
