    Odell Beckham Jr. Apr 25 10:20pm ET

    The New York Giants selected Clemson defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence with the No. 17 overall pick of the 2019 NFL draft. This is the pick that the Giants acquired from the Browns in the trade that sent receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to Cleveland. Lawrence is the third defensive lineman taken from Clemson in the first round, believe it or not. He was 360 pounds as a freshman recruit. Lawrence is a hog molly on the D line that will take up space and help smother the run. Despite his size, he has solid speed and an ability to push the pocket as well.

    Dalvin Cook Apr 25 10:20pm ET

    The Minnesota Vikings selected North Carolina State center Garrett Bradbury with the No. 18 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. He's the first center off the board in the 2019 draft. Bradbury was also a star catcher in high school. He's a smart football player with great character and nice athleticism. Minnesota's offensive line has been a mess of late, so Bradbury will hopefully become an anchor on the O-line for years to come. It's great news for Dalvin Cook.

    Case Keenum Apr 25 10:10pm ET

    The Washington Redskins selected Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins with the No. 15 overall pick of the 2019 NFL draft. The Redskins wanted to potentially move up into the top 10 to take Haskins, but they didn't even have to move at all to get him. Some teams didn't even have a first-round grade on Haskins, so there is some bust potential, but the 'Skins don't mind gambling on him. They traded for Case Keenum in the offseason, but he's not the long-term answer and Alex Smith (leg) may never play in the NFL again. Haskins may wind up making starts in 2019, but don't count on it. He can do it all in the pocket and has great accuracy and touch. He'll be a popular pick in dynasty drafts.

    Andy Dalton Apr 25 9:40pm ET

    The Cincinnati Bengals selected Alabama offensive guard Jonah Williams with the No. 11 pick of the 2019 NFL draft. Williams was a rock on the offensive line for Alabama in his three seasons as the starter. Cincinnati could really use some offensive line help for their running game and to keep quarterback Andy Dalton upright. There's a chance Williams could become an excellent left tackle in the NFL, but he's versatile and is the best offensive line prospect in this draft.

    Aaron Donald Apr 25 9:30pm ET

    The Buffalo Bills selected Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. The 300-pounder will help the Bills replace Kyle Williams on the defensive line. There have been comparisons to Aaron Donald of the Rams. While that's a bit optimistic, Donald is a very special talent inside and is great at disrupting the backfield with his bull-rush power. Oliver will need to improve to take the next step at the next level, but there is a lot to like with his potential.

    Josh Allen Apr 25 9:20pm ET

    The Jacksonville Jaguars selected Kentucky edge rusher Josh Allen with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Allen was considered the best edge rusher in this draft, so the Jags could have a very nice steal on their hands with this pick. He had 17 sacks in his final season in college and can bring pressure from the inside and the outside. Allen can be elite in the NFL and will give Jacksonville a very potent pass rush overall.

    Matthew Stafford Apr 25 9:20pm ET

    The Detroit Lions selected Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson with the No. 8 overall pick of the 2019 NFL draft. He becomes only the fourth tight end in history to go in the top 10 picks. The Lions also selected Eric Ebron in the top 10 picks just a few years ago, but they saw him post a big season with the Colts in 2018. Detroit could really use some production at the position to help quarterback Matthew Stafford. Hockenson should be the clear top pass-catching rookie tight end. He has big upside, but be careful not to overvalue him in redraft leagues. Not only can Hockenson catch passes, but he's also an excellent blocker.

    Eli Manning Apr 25 9:10pm ET

    The New York Giants selected Duke quarterback Daniel Jones at No. 6 overall in the 2019 NFL draft. We knew that the Giants would be looking for Eli Manning's successor in this draft, we just weren't sure that they'd go with a QB with their first of two picks in the first round. Jones is the second signal-caller off the board in the first round after Kyler Murray went first overall. He'll sit and learn behind Manning in his first year and could see some starts eventually, depending on how Manning looks. Jones will have a ton of dynasty appeal, but don't expect him to give you much in redraft leagues in his rookie season.

    Josh Allen Apr 25 9:00pm ET

    The Oakland Raiders selected Clemson defensive end Clelin Ferrell with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Ferrell clearly has first-round talent, and he's a traditional 3-4 defensive end that should fit well in Oakland's defensive system. Some thought that Josh Allen was the best pure edge rusher in this draft, but Ferrell isn't that far behind. Oakland had a big need at pass rusher after trading Khalil Mack for a first-round pick before last season. Ferrell should help the Raiders be more effective sacking the opposing QB this year.

    Josh Rosen Apr 25 8:30pm ET

    The Arizona Cardinals selected Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick of the 2019 NFL draft. This was the expected move all along, and the Cardinals finally confirmed it on Thursday evening. Murray is the most athletic signal-caller in this year's draft, as he was also a first-round pick in baseball last June. The knock on him is he might be too small to succeed at the next level, especially with Arizona's offensive line being one of the worst in the NFL. With Murray now atop the depth chart, look for the Cardinals to trade Josh Rosen, their first-round pick in 2018, on Friday. Murray will be an excellent draft choice in keeper leagues, but he might struggle for consistency in redraft leagues, although head coach Kliff Kingsbury's Air Raid offense should fit him very well.

    Kyler Murray Apr 25 4:00pm ET

    If Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray goes to the Cardinals at No. 1 overall and Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa goes at No. 2 to the 49ers, the Buffalo Bills could trade up to No. 3 to select Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, according to rival general managers. The Jets own the third overall pick, but they are willing to trade down to secure more picks in the draft. Buffalo currently sits with the No. 9 overall pick, but they desperately want to upgrade their defensive line.

    Josh Rosen Apr 25 2:40pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim reached out to Alabama defensive tackle Quinnen Williams to let him know that he's still a possibility for the team at No. 1 overall, according to a source. It's widely believed that Arizona will go with Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray with the first overall pick, but the Cardinals brass is at least making us believe that they might go with someone else. If Arizona takes Murray, they're expected to trade last year's first-round pick, Josh Rosen, but it might not happen until Friday.

    Case Keenum Apr 25 2:20pm ET

    The Washington Redskins are unsure if they want to select a quarterback with their first-round pick, and they are also in disagreement on the top QB on their draft board, with owner Bruce Allen and general manager Dan Snyder liking Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins, while some in the organization prefer Duke's Daniel Jones, according to sources. The 'Skins are also an option to move up from the No. 15 pick in order to get a quarterback of the future, but it remains to be seen if they'll pull the trigger on a trade on Thursday evening. If they do take a signal-caller in the first round, he could sit for a year behind either Case Keenum or Colt McCoy.

    Jadeveon Clowney Apr 25 1:50pm ET

    According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Houston Texans are open to trading linebacker Jadeveon Clowney, who they placed the franchise tag on. The Texans have discussed an extension with Clowney, but he's yet to sign the franchise tender and the two sides aren't believed to be close on a long-term extension. The Houston Chronicle's John McClain said on Thursday that Clowney is "not going anywhere," but perhaps the Texans will receive an offer they can't refuse on draft day. Clowney was the first overall pick in 2015 and has 18.5 sacks over the last two seasons, but he's also missed a lot of time due to injuries.

    Case Keenum Apr 25 12:40pm ET

    The Washington Redskins aren't very serious about trading up in the first round into the top five picks, according to sources. Washington's calls about trading up are "Bruce Allen being Bruce Allen." Washington sits at No. 15 overall and could really use a quarterback despite trading for Case Keenum in the offseason. However, it doesn't appear that they'll give up the farm to be able to select one in the top five picks on Thursday night.

    Derek Carr Apr 25 12:20pm ET

    The Oakland Raiders moved Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins up their draft board late this week, according to a source. Haskins impressed the Raiders during his workout, and he could be an option for them at No. 4 overall, but it would certainly be a surprising pick with Derek Carr already on the roster and expected to start in 2019. Oakland also has the No. 24 and No. 27 picks in the first round, so they could go in a lot of different directions. Taking a quarterback in the top five picks would certainly qualify as an outside-the-box pick for a player that some teams don't even have a first-round grade on.

    Jarran Reed Apr 25 9:35am ET

    Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Jarran Reed underwent sports hernia surgery on Tuesday, according to a source. His recovery timeline is expected to be four to six weeks, so he should be ready in plenty of time for training camp this summer. Heading into the final year of his deal, the Seahawks want to extend Reed, especially after trading defensive end Frank Clark to the Chiefs on Tuesday. The 26-year-old set career highs in tackles (50) and sacks (10.5) in his first full season in Seattle last year. The team will need his production even more now that Clark is gone.

    Ezekiel Ansah Apr 25 12:40am ET

    Free-agent defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) had positive reviews from Dr. Neal ElAttrache on Monday, and he could be cleared by mid-August. Ansah's shoulder is structurally sound, but he still needs to gain strength in it heading into the 2019 season. The pass rusher visited with the Ravens on Wednesday and will surely be added by a team despite his history with injuries. Ansah played in only seven games with Detroit last year and hasn't played in a full season since 2015. He still has upside, though, with double-digit sack totals in 2015 and 2017, and he can help some team if he can stay on the field. Ansah will need to prove it before IDP owners will take a chance on him again.

    Andy Dalton Apr 25 12:30am ET

    The feeling around the league is that the Cincinnati Bengals aren't in the quarterback market for the first round of the draft on Thursday, especially not with the 11th overall pick. Andy Dalton had a disappointing year due to injury in 2018, but he could be on the hot seat in Cincy if he falters again in 2019. The Bengals are probably better off filling more pressing needs early in this draft, but you shouldn't rule them out from drafting a signal-caller at some point for extra depth at the position.

    Tyreek Hill Apr 25 12:20am ET

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill won't face charges, but Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said he thinks a crime was committed against Hill's 3-year-old son. Investigators couldn't determine who committed the crime in which the boy suffered a broken arm. Hill and his fiance could ultimately lose custody of the child, and the NFL could hand down a lengthy suspension to Hill even though he wasn't formally charged with a crime. Hill has become one of the best receivers in the NFL, but his status as a WR1 with a high ceiling will come under question now as he faces a potential suspension. Stay tuned for more details.
