Drew Nantais @Drew_Nantais Updated at 8:05 p.m. ET Updated at 8:05 p.m. ET Now that the NFL offseason is here, it's officially time to start looking forward to the 2019 draft and free agency. Young players showcase their talent in the months leading up to the draft in the hopes they hear their name called at some point over the three-day event. Nick Bosa, Quinnen Williams and Josh Allen are just a few players projected to be taken in the first few picks of this year's draft. The Raiders have the three picks in the first round this year — the most of any team. They pick fourth, 24th and 27th overall after trading Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper to Chicago and Dallas, respectively. No other team has more than one pick, barring offseason trades.

The redshirt senior defensive tackle has been unblockable in 2018 for the Hurricanes by Chris Trapasso @ChrisTrapasso CBSSports.com 2m ago • 6 min read We went into the season knowing names like Ed Oliver, Dre'Mont Jones, Dexter Lawrence, Raekwon Davis, and Jeffrey Simmons. It's time we include Miami's Gerald Willis to the collection of dazzling defensive tackle prospects in the 2019 draft. He's been an unstoppable force on a loaded Hurricanes defense through the team's first seven games and has demonstrated a nasty swim move from his powerful, compact frame.I don't know if he'll test as outstandingly as Sheldon Richardson did in 2013, but I get Richardson vibes while watching Willis.Here's my updated Top 20 prospects list. 1. Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio StateBosa made the right decision to leave Ohio State to prepare for the NFL Draft. As I wrote yesterday, he'll likely stay at the No. 1 spot for me unless someone like Ed Oliver or … [Read more...] about 2019 NFL Draft Prospect Rankings: Add Miami’s Gerald Willis to group of premier DT prospects
The 10th overall pick didn't make his first start until Week 4 and now he's tasked with getting Arizona its first win of the season by Ryan Wilson @ryanwilson_07 2m ago • 7 min read The Cardinals finished 8-8 a year ago and they managed that without a quarterback. Yes, Carson Palmer started seven games, but at 38, he wasn't the player he once was. The other nine starts were split between Blaine Gabbert and Drew Stanton. And with a defense that ranked fourth in the league, according to Football Outsiders' metrics -- and third in 2016 -- finding a replacement-level-or-better quarterback could be the difference between another season of mediocrity and the playoffs. Or so the theory went. The good news is that, through the first month of the season, the defense ranks 11th, so when in the list of things plaguing this team, they rank pretty low. The Cardinals signed 30-year-old Sam Bradford to a one-year, $20 million deal in the offseason and then … [Read more...] about Race for 2019 NFL Draft No. 1 pick: Can Josh Rosen save the Cardinals from futility?
The Bulls' defensive leader wins with physical ability and a good understanding of how to beat blocks by Chris Trapasso @ChrisTrapasso CBSSports.com 2m ago • 5 min read Khalil Hodge needs some more love as a legit NFL prospect.Though he plays for the Buffalo Bulls, historically a non-powerhouse in the MAC, the senior linebacker has been overshadowed by two teammates on the offensive side of the ball. Wideout Anthony Johnson -- a 6-foot-2, 205-pound, yards-after-the-catch specialist -- had 1,356 yards and 14 touchdowns on 76 receptions in 2017 and is a likely first- or second-round pick. Quarterback Tyree Jackson might even be more captivating to scouts and GMs at 6-7 and 245 pounds with plus athleticism, a monster arm, and a 30-13 touchdown-to-interception ratio to date in his career.All Hodge did last season was finish the year as the nation's second-leading tackler with 153 takedowns. He also added two pass breakups, a pair of force … [Read more...] about 2019 NFL Draft: Why Buffalo LB Khalil Hodge can be a productive three-down NFL defender
