According to Josh Norris of NBC Sports, the Bears met with guard Quenton Nelson yesterday.
Whether Nelson is still available when they pick eighth overall remains to be seen, but their interest in him is natural. Depending on how quickly the quarterback land rush goes, the teams picking immediately in front of the Bears (the Colts at No. 6 and the Buccaneers at No. 7) could easily justify using a high pick on a guard.
The Bears hired former Notre Dame offensive line coach Harry Hiestand this offseason, so he knows better than most what Nelson could bring.
I’m straight back to working out and doing what I did when I came here, Manziel said. Everything else will sort itself out. I’m trying to do what I can do to come back to playing football whatever capacity that is. We know when deadlines are. We have another month or so to work out and not worry about anything.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats, who hold Manziel’s CFL rights, start training camp in the middle of May.
The Giants want to be a run-first, physical football team and Saquon can basically be the face of that franchise moving forward several years. He can be the back that they’ve had in years past. If you spend 10 minutes with Saquon you understand that he’s going to be the face of a franchise. He’s so likeable, so easy to get along with, a great genuine young man who loves the game and is going to give you everything he’s got every week.
Chase Litton has a flaw that might not be correctable.
He locks on to targets far too often, which resulted in 14 interceptions during his final season at Marshall. Worse, those picks came in bunches, with Litton throwing 12 touchdown passes and 11 interceptions over his final six college games.
