— Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports that the Browns will take Myles Garrett with the first overall pick. Cabot also reports that the Browns will still try to trade up for Mitch Trubisky from No. 12. They also have the No. 33 and No. 52 overall picks.
— Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports that the 49ers have talked to six different teams about the No. 2 overall pick, where they could take any number of players. San Fransisco has tons of needs on its roster and might benefit from moving back to address more of them. We could see LSU S Jamal Adams, Alabama DE Jonathan Allen, LSU RB Leonard Fournette or Stanford DE Solomon Thomas getting picked here.
— ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Wednesday that the Titans are fielding offers for the No. 5 overall pick. This pick is actually the Rams because they traded up to draft Jared Goff last year.
— While a ton of teams seem intent on trying to move down, the Broncos reportedly want to move up, Schefter reports. Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole reports that the Broncos are one of the teams interested in the Titans’ No. 5 pick.
— Sports Illustrated’s Peter King reports that the Bears are interested in Leonard Fournette at No. 3.
— NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reports that Ole Miss TE Evan Engram might sneak into the first round.
— The Cowboys are no strangers to players who have been in trouble. And while Ohio State CB Gareon Conley has only been accused and not found guilty of sexual assault, his draft stock may fall. But Dallas isn’t shying away from him, according to Tom Pelissero of USA Today.
— Sporting News reports that Michigan DE Taco Charlton likely will be drafted by the Lions if he’s still available at pick No. 21.
— Rapoport also says that Washington WR John Ross and UCLA DE Takkarist McKinley could fall because of injury history.
— ESPN’s Todd McShay has Clemson WR Mike Williams going No. 14 to the Eagles. Philadelphia is also reportedly interested in Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey, but he’s unlikely to fall outside the top 10 — both the Panthers and Chargers want him.
