    • Minnesota cornerback Jalen Myrick and Western Michigan linebacker Keion Adams are the next two to visit. I've seen projections all over the place for Myrick, as high as the second round and as low as the fifth. I think there will be a run on corners again this year, then a clean break and a precipitous drop off. Where Myrick will land will depend on how many corners get taken in the first round.



      Adams may go undrafted. I'm glad to see visits by guys all over the board, not just obvious folks.



      I still like a Edge / OLB (T. J. Watt is my favorite) in the first and a corner like CordreaTankersley, AhkelloWitherspoon, or Desmond King in the second.

      Tim Williams from Alabama and DE Tanoh Kpassagnon from Villanova today (4/11/17)
      would like to have both of these young men , Kpassagnon would be a steal IMO where he is being mocked ( late 4 ) ordinary years he is a second round pick and nobody would complain

      Williams has a lot to like about his game but I wouldnt want him in rd 1 he needs a ton of strength work
