The Rams will have a new player on the practice field when they wrap up their offseason program with a three-day minicamp next week.
He walked WGR 550 through his team’s mock draft process for this week; it started on Monday and included five different mock drafts. The first two involved going around the room with scouts and personnel men picking 1 through 22. (The Bills own picks No. 12 and 22.) The next two mocks took the Bills from picks 1 through 56, which would include Buffalo’s picks at 53 and 56.
The final mock had Beane assign each man to be a GM of a team—Person A is Cleveland GM John Dorsey —and that person would be in charge of Cleveland’s draft, and so on. I spoke to a source from a team that went to the playoffs last season who said they’ve done anywhere between eight to 10 scenarios. What happens is the team will do those mocks until their late pick, and based on the situations—say a quarterback-needy team did not take a quarterback in the first round—the second round was extrapolated out.
Absolutely. I’m young. I’m 57 years old, Pagano said. I’ve got a couple years left in me. I’ve got unfinished business. I’d love to have another opportunity, I just love being around the guys, being on grass and competing.
It might be hard to reconcile the idea of Pagano getting another chance after last year’s Luck-less 4-12 effort.
But he did have a solid start in Indianapolis. After coming back from leukemia treatments in 2012, the Colts went 11-5 in each of his first two full seasons. Following with a pair of 8-8s didn’t help, and he’d likely have to take another stint as an assistant to get another opportunity.
Antonio Callaway, one of the draft’s top receiver talents, further hurt his stock with a reported failed drug test at the NFL combine. (AP) More In 2017, Callaway was involved in a credit card fraud scheme that left him and six of his teammates suspended amidst 62 felony complaints. Callaway agreed to a pre-trial intervention and probation to have the charges dropped. He never played for Florida again.
