GM Dave Gettleman - Giants 'open for business' for No. 4 pick

Gettleman traded two draft picks - a 2020 third-rounder and 2021 conditional fifth-rounder - to obtain Williams from the Jets.

The Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Rams, two teams that missed the playoffs last season, are leaving their assistants behind this year, figuring their staffs can watch the on-field drills on broadcasts and review taped interviews without having to fly to Indianapolis.

The Buffalo Bills can wait to select a wide receiver at the 2020 NFL Draft, says NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah. And I think that offense is another one that could use this type of a player that we just discussed of guys you can use on some of the, get them some of the bubbles, some of the easy completions, some of the fly sweeps, all that stuff.

The Giants, as well as the Detroit Lions picking third, could hold the keys to teams that want to make sure they end up with Tagovailoa or Herbert. "It's just another point of contact that I think can really help you".

It's unlikely to play out that way. The Cincinnati Bengals, holding the first pick, are seen as a lock to take Burrow. He has never traded back in any draft as a general manager.

Oftentimes teams capitalize on this to lay the groundwork for free agency that comes a couple of weeks after the combine. Young and the other defensive linemen and linebackers will work out at the combine Saturday.

"If they're tough and they're fast, and maybe they're not great football players right now, they're a little bit raw, developmental", Jeremiah explained, "I know they have a lot of confidence in their group as teachers to be able to get it out of them". "I've talked to a bunch of defensive coordinators in the offseason and posed this question to them about: Are we going to start heading towards a positionless game, where you see guys on offense like Deebo Samuel who are playing in the slot but can nearly function as running backs. That's kind of the traits I would keep an eye out for (the Panthers)". It's all new to them.

"I mean, he checks all the boxes", Jeremiah said. "I'm encouraged by that. It's going to be refreshing to see some of these new drills".

"Ohio St defensive end Chase Young, the top prospect in @MoveTheSticks' Top 50, is not planning to take part in drills for the NFL Scouting Combine this week, source says", NFL Media's Ian Rapoport tweeted. There shouldn't be a shortage of upper-echelon players for the first round; wide receiver, quarterback and offensive line are considered some of the stronger positions.

Will he pass up the chance of taking "the best player" - a favorite quote of his that he repeated on Tuesday - by trading down?
