ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. predicts Browns…

Jackson has inside/outside flexibility and he might be the fastest player in the entire draft.

The New York Jets have three of the first 49 picks in the 2018 NFL Draft after trading defensive end Sheldon Richardson to the Seattle Seahawks before the 2017 season.

Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph and wide receiver James Washington also can be found on several boards.

As the Giants and Jets set their draft boards and establish their quarterback pecking orders, ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr.is doing the same - such that his rankings are of any effect. He was probably the first to be deemed a draft expert, though he has no experience as a player, coach or scout. "But if they take a quarterback, I went with Rosen".

Allen, who has signed with mega agency CAA and is working out for the draft outside of Los Angeles, will be among the quarterbacks attending the Senior Bowl next week in Mobile, Ala.

In all, Kiper projects four quarterbacks to be taken in the first round, including two others among the top five. Hubbard is probably better for team that plays a 4-3 like the Lions.

Kiper is concerned about Rosen's ability to stay on the field. Stats are for losers, in my opinion, ” Kiper said. He was a third-round pick.

Trump's Mistake on DACA
The White House has not denied that Trump said "s--hole" though Trump has already pushed back on some depictions of the meeting. Among Democrats, government dissatisfaction is by far the front-runner, with 30 percent of respondents listing it.

But Topol said he would not be concerned unless a patient of Trump's age came to him with calcium levels of 700 or more. Members of Congress from both parties are trying to strike a deal that Trump would support to extend that protection.

Flu Season is Getting Worse
In some states, like SC , the Department of Health and Environmental Control requires dialysis patients to get a flu shot. The Center for Disease Control estimates that at least 30 children died from the flu in the past few months.

Between the NFL Scouting Combine and pro days, there is certainly plenty of time for Allen, Rosen, and Darnold to change perceptions - one way or the other.

With the No. 4 pick, Kiper sends Penn State running back Saquon Barkley to the Browns.

"Orlando Brown is a late one, early two", Kiper said.

"I think he's the most polished passer in the draft".

Whether you like his work or not, most of you are familiar with Mel Kiper.

However, one concern I have with Payne is his production. Cleveland's second-round pick a year ago should have been brought along differently but unfortunately, that won't change the fact that at least one quarterback will be competing with him. The underclassmen who made a decision to go back to school also has a major impact on this update. They could use a tight end. He doesn't get a lot of separation. They haven't got any lately.
