With the NFL Mix underway, extra information and rumors are starting to flow into. Whereas many eyes shall be on the 2022 NFL Draft prospects on the sector at Lucas Oil Stadium, NFL free agency is lower than two weeks away from kicking off. Right here is the newest I’m listening to on the Giants quarterback state of affairs and the ripple results of Mix performances.
NFL Free Company Information and Rumors: Are the Giants serious about Trubisky?
I’ve been reporting since final week the Pittsburgh Steelers look set to make a big push for quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. I can now verify the New York Giants are one other staff that may very seemingly goal the previous first-round choose in free company.
That is extra than simply the pure match of Trubisky reuniting with Brian Daboll and Joe Schoen, each of whom he labored with in Buffalo final season. I’m advised the Giants might probably signal Trubisky to compete with Daniel Jones for the beginning quarterback spot. Whether or not it’s the Giants, Steelers, or one other staff, it’s in all probability going to take some huge cash to signal Trubisky, as curiosity within the quarterback has been off the charts all week.
NFL Free Company Information and Rumors: Mix performances will have an effect on free company
The excellent Combine workouts by the offensive linemen on Friday night time are going to have ripple results in free company. Sources I’ve spoken with say groups will seemingly pull again from spending tens of millions on out there free agent offensive linemen since there are such a lot of athletic blockers out there within the draft. You’ll be able to count on bargain-hunting on the place as soon as free company formally opens.
One offensive lineman scouts are gushing over since final night time is Arizona State deal with Kellen Diesch. I discussed throughout my Combine preview of the group Diesch would flip heads, and he did. He was timed underneath 4.90 seconds on quite a few stopwatches, with one of many quickest 10-yard splits — 1.70 seconds — of the night time. His 7.77 three-cone and 4.42 brief shuttle had been additionally near the top of the offensive line position. Diesch might transfer into the late a part of Day 2. I’m advised each the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs and Arizona Cardinals are very excessive on him.
Extra information and rumors from the Scouting Mix
Kentucky receiver Wan’Dale Robinson ran a lot sooner than anticipated within the 40-yard sprint, timing underneath 4.40 seconds. He’s getting plenty of love within the scouting neighborhood. As I discussed earlier than the receiver took the sector for Mix exercises, he’s drawing comparisons to Rondale Moore based mostly on his dimension, quickness, and skill to create yardage after the catch. The Detroit Lions have proven plenty of curiosity in Robinson.
Yesterday, I reported the New York Jets had Treylon Burks because the top receiver on their board, and that was once more confirmed to me only a few hours in the past. In truth, I’m advised basic supervisor Joe Douglas has been gushing about Burks to folks contained in the league because the Senior Bowl. Whether or not or not Burks’ subpar Mix efficiency modifications that rating stays to be seen. Not solely did Burks check poorly, however he didn’t look good in place drills.
The opposite participant I’m advised the Jets grade extremely is offensive deal with Trevor Penning. This makes plenty of sense for a wide range of causes, and Penning might instantly are available in and begin at proper deal with. The Jets have proven curiosity in re-signing Morgan Moses, but my feeling is that’s unlikely to occur. Granted, the Jets have a pair of top-10 choices, and neither Burks nor Penning grade that top.
