Player Notes

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

    Advice: 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. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:02 am

  • Quinn endorses Ameer Abdullah as starting RB
    When asked if Ameer Abdullah is the starting running back, Lions GM Bob Quinn said, "He is."

    Advice: Detroit had nine picks in the draft this weekend. None were used on running backs. That's great news for Abdullah, who sat out most of his sophomore year with a torn ligament in his foot. The 2015 second-rounder hasn't been the difference maker the Lions hoped he would be, but he's still Detroit's lead dog coming out of the backfield. Aside from Abdullah, Theo Riddick will continue to play on passing downs while Zach Zenner will handle a change-of-pace role for the Lions. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:26 am

  • Falcons add TE Eric Saubert with 174th pick
    Falcons selected Drake TE Eric Saubert with the No. 174 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

    Advice: Saubert (6’5/253) was a dominant receiving tight end in the Pioneer Football League, starting all four years and piling up a 56-776-10 (13.9 YPR) stat line as a redshirt senior. He was voted second-team All-America in the FCS in 2016. Saubert blazed 4.65 with a 33-inch vertical and 7.29 three-cone time at his Pro Day, showing NFL-level athleticism. Blessed with long arms (33 ˝"), huge hands (10 3’8"), and smarts (35 Wonderlic score), Saubert offers big-time pass-catching traits. While an unlikely early-career contributor, Saubert is an intriguing project if he can handle the colossal jump in competition. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:22 pm

  • Broncos trade up for 5-foot-7 receiver
    Broncos traded up with the Packers to select Georgia WR Isaiah McKenzie with the No. 172 overall pick of the 2017 NFL draft.

    Advice: McKenzie (5’7/173) made only 60 career catches as just an 11-game starter at wide receiver for the Bulldogs, but he showed electrifying special teams ability with six return scores, five on punts and one on a kickoff. After blazing 4.42 at the Combine, McKenzie was called the quickest prospect in the entire 2017 draft by ESPN’s Todd McShay. McKenzie’s offensive potential is nearly nonexistent at his size, but he is one of the top pure return men in this year’s draft. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:21 pm

  • Bills use 5th-round pick on QB Nate Peterman
    Bills selected Pittsburgh QB Nate Peterman with the No. 171 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

    Advice: Peterman (6’3/226) made 24 starts in two years at Pitt after transferring from Tennessee, finishing his career with a 60% completion rate and 47:17 TD-to-INT ratio. All told, he went 14-12 across 26 college starts. Peterman generated buzz at January’s Senior Bowl for his plus fundamentals. On tape, Peterman showed a quick release and consistent footwork but limited velocity and tossed vertical passes that tended to die at the end of their trajectory. Smart (33 Wonderlic score) and coachable, It’s not inconceivable that Peterman could become an Andy Dalton kind of player, but it’s unlikely. Brian Hoyer is probably a more realistic comparison.
