Fisher over Joeckel?

Profootballtalk compiled all the reports suggesting that the Kansas City Chiefs could prefer LT Eric Fisher over Luke Joeckel with the first overall pick in the draft, contrary to several mock drafts leading up to draft day.

Revis' Replacement?

Highly-ranked cornerback prospect Dee Milliner told New York Daily News that the New York Jets like him as a potential selection even more after the team traded their top cover man, Darrelle Revis, to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this week. As a result of the trade, the Jets have two first-round picks, No. 9 and No. 13.

There is also the chance the Jets could trade down to acquire more picks. ESPN New York reports Jets GM John Idzik expects to hold substantive talks about trading picks in the first round.

Browns Moving Up?

According to a report originally from the NFL Network, the Cleveland Browns could be interested in trading up to the top three in order to select a pass rusher. Speculation exists that the Browns could be targeting LSU defensive end Barkevious Mingo.

Different QB In Sight?

One day after multiple reports suggested that the Buffalo Bills were targeting QB Ryan Nassib with one of their early picks in the NFL Draft, there are now reports that Buffalo is more interested in USC QB Matt Barkley.

Profootballtalk warns that this, like every other rumour out there, could be nothing more than a smokescreen.
