He finished the season with just 39 receptions for 593 yards, although he did lead the team with eight touchdown receptions. The toughest part is that L.A gave up a second-round pick and cornerback E.J. Gaines to acquire a player it thought would be a No. 1 receiver. Giving Watkins the franchise tag would give the Rams a chance to find out if he can be that receiver after all.
The Dolphins did hit Landry with the tag on the first day teams were allowed to apply it. Negotiations haven’t gone great so far between Landry and the Dolphins, and it sounds like a long-term deal could be tough to agree to before the July 16 deadline. But letting Landry walk after three consecutive Pro Bowls and 400 receptions in the last four years would have been a tough pill to swallow for an offense that can’t afford to slow down more than it already has.
If the Bears at No. 8 or the Dolphins at No. 11 don’t take Ridley, he could slide into the middle teens. That would be great for Baltimore, which needs a dependable pass catcher to help revitalize Joe Flacco’s career. Ridley may not be big for fast, but the Marvin Harrison comparisons were brought up by many at the combine.
The best comparison for Brown has always been King Dunlap because of his sheer size and ability to use it to take up space. Brown had a bad combine, there’s no mistaking that fact. But in game, he’s a mountainous blocker who can be the Chargers’ right tackle for years to come. When are you ever going to watch Orlando Brown run 40 yards down the field, you can watch last year’s tape and see he allowed zero sacks, Brown’s Oklahoma teammate Baker Mayfield said at the combine. I’d say that’s pretty important for a left tackle.
As his Andy Levitre Jersey career wore on, Alabama started to use Fitzpatrick more as a nickelback than at safety, his listed spot. He was either a nickel or a linebacker on almost every snap in Bama’s National Championship win against Georgia. Here’s a supercut from that game that features 31 Fitzpatrick snaps as a nickel/backer, one as a deep safety, and none as an outside corner. It’s a role that Fitzpatrick seems extra comfortable playing.
I came in as a corner, so I’m used to just covering people, playing man to man wherever it was. Like halfway through camp, Coach Saban just came to me asking if I wanted to play slot corner, learn how to play it. And I said, ‘Sure,’ so I kind of just took on that role, he said.

I think I’m in my prime. I want to play as long as I can, he said via NFL.com. There are so many great players on this team and it’s a great organization.
The Seahawks could look to the draft, where they have the No. 18 pick, to find a replacement for Bennett.
