Player Notes

  • Bears fourth-round RB Langford signs contract
    Bears signed No. 106 overall pick RB Jeremy Langford to a four-year contract.

    Advice: Langford ran 4.42 at the Combine, but doesn't play that fast on film. He also lacks tackle-breaking ability at an angular 6-foot, 208. Langford does have soft hands and is an able pass protector, and should have the inside track on Bears No. 2 back duties over holdover Ka'Deem Carey and street-FA type Jacquizz Rodgers. Contract-year starter Matt Forte turns 30 later this year. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Wallace believes he's league's fastest
    Mike Wallace believes he's the fastest player in the NFL.

    Advice: Wallace says he's run a 4.21 40-yard dash in the past. "I’ve run a lot of routes and I’ve got a lot of miles on my legs, but I still feel that there’s nobody (in the NFL) who can run with me," Wallace said. "I might have slowed down a little, but I could still run 4.25." Wallace's boast is impossible to prove, but his elite speed was still in good working order last season. He'll be able to take the tops off teams for his new club. Rotoworld.com

  • Cowboys didn't take Ajayi off their board
    The Cowboys did not remove Jay Ajayi from their draft board, and ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer believes they would have drafted Ajayi had he gotten past the Dolphins at No. 149 overall.

    Advice: The Cowboys were next on the clock at No. 163 overall, where they drafted Purdue DE Ryan Russell. They selected Minnesota ILB Damien Wilson in the fourth round (127), ahead of Ajayi. Regardless, Archer writes that "Ajayi was one of their targets" in the draft, and "might have been an option for the Cowboys in the fifth round if they weren't beaten to the punch" by the Dolphins.

  • David Johnson the favorite for red-zone work
    ESPN Cardinals reporter Josh Weinfuss says third-round RB David Johnson has a good shot at red-zone work.

    Advice: Johnson doesn't play as big as his 6'1/224 frame would suggest, but he's still a better option in short yardage than featherweight Andre Ellington. Johnson is also far more talented than Stepfan Taylor and Kerwynn Williams. So even though Ellington is fully expected to retain his starting gig and remain a focal point of the offense, Johnson will have value as a backup to an injury-prone player and a candidate for both inside running and goal-line work.

  • Steelers not worried about Coats' drops
    Steelers GM Kevin Colbert insisted third-round WR Sammie Coates has good hands.

    Advice: The tape says otherwise as Coates dropped 8-of-75 targets for Auburn in 2014 and showed poor ball skills. "What I will tell you is, they didn’t play him every down," Steelers WRs coach Richard Mann said. "What happens is he disappears. A lot of times, in my opinion, players have a tendency to lose concentration simply because they weren’t involved and then you bring them back in the heat of the battle." Coates will start his NFL career battling Markus Wheaton for the No. 3 job. The Steelers are willing to roll the dice thanks to unique physical talent. Rotoworld.com
