2012 NFL Draft Rumors
With the draft a little under a month away, a lot of rumors are pushed out in the open. Any rumors/smokescreens you can find on the web, post in this thread. I'll start out by some things I found on Rotoworld.
NFL Network's Jason LaCanfora reports the Browns are "thinking of selecting" Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill with the fourth overall pick next month.
Several sources tell LaCanfora the Browns are "monitoring Tannehill closely and have favorable scouting reports" on the QB. The report doesn't tell us much more than was already assumed. With four weeks to decide whether to pull the trigger on Tannehill, the Browns have no reason to show other teams anything other than serious interest. For what it's worth, ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi believes the Browns are still "leaning against" drafting Tannehill or Brandon Weeden.
The Denver Post expects the Broncos to use their first-round pick on a defensive tackle.
Penn State's Devon Still could be an inviting possibility at No. 25. Other options may include LSU's Michael Brockers, Michigan State's Jerel Worthy, and UConn's Kendall Reyes. Still would be more desirable than the others, particularly from a production standpoint. The Broncos lost Brodrick Bunkley in free agency, and haven't had an elite interior D-Lineman in quite some time.
Mike Jurecki of XTRA 910 Arizona is "hearing" that the Cardinals prefer Stanford OG David DeCastro over Stanford OT Jonathan Martin, assuming both make it to the No. 13 overall pick.
DeCastro better fits the Cardinals' mentality from a physicality standpoint. This also suggests Arizona is looking more for interior linemen than tackles at this point, although the team needs help in both areas. There's little doubt DeCastro is a better prospect than his college teammate, regardless of position.
