Report: NFL teams could be cleared to sign XFL players next week

  Report: NFL teams could be cleared to sign XFL players next week Now after some deliberation, the NFL could have a resolution in place early next week that would allow its clubs to sign XFL players. It’s good news for Houston Roughnecks quarterback P.J. Walker. The 25-year-old Walker stood out as the XFL’s best player and caught the eye of multiple NFL teams. As of this week, the Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals all inquired with the Roughnecks about Walker.Walker won’t be the only XFL starter to draw interest from NFL teams. Los Angeles Wildcats quarterback Josh Johnson, Roughnecks receiver Cam Phillips and St.

After knocking Alabama off its perch atop the SEC standings last season, could LSU also break its tie with Alabama and Auburn for most first - round picks in a single NFL draft ? The current SEC record is four, and it seems likely that both LSU and Alabama will surpass that total in next month's draft .

The annual NFL Draft gives the teams the opportunity to infuse their rosters with new talent. Some players will provide an instant boost to the team that selects But the chance that drafted players will lead their new clubs to glory makes teams compete over talent, whether in the first round or the last.

If you wanted to prepare for the NFL draft, just put on last season’s Alabama-LSU game. You might see one-third of the first round in one game.

It seems inconceivable that two schools could collect so much NFL talent. But BetMGM’s draft props are telling. Alabama and LSU have the same line for total players selected in the first round: 5.5.

Alabama players drafted in first round: 5.5

Over: -125; Under: +105

LSU players drafted in the first round: 5.5

Over: +150; Under: -182

It’s possible we see 10-12 Alabama or LSU players go in the first round, starting with LSU quarterback Joe Burrow at No. 1 and perhaps Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa second overall. LSU won that game last season against Alabama 46-41 and won a national title, but which school will have more first-round picks?

NFL VP reaches out to prospects about draft participation

  NFL VP reaches out to prospects about draft participation NFL vice president Troy Vincent has sent a letter to several prospects inviting them to participate “live” in the NFL draft in three weeks. The Associated Press on Tuesday obtained the letter sent by the league's football operations chief to prospective early selections in the draft, which will be held remotely on April 23-25 due to the coronavirus pandemic. “We hope that you will start your NFL journey with us as part of the NFL family,” Vincent wrote. "At this time, we are working on the plan for draft. As you can imagine, it is a bit of a moving target with all that is going on.

The teams drafting in the first round have more than one choice — well, except for the Cincinnati Bengals. Alabama cornerback Trevon Diggs would be the perfect fit in Mike Zimmer’s defense. He’s a long, physical Alabama edge rusher Terrell Lewis is a risky pick because of his injury history, but

BetMGM has a prop bet for that, too.

Will LSU or Alabama have more first-round picks?

LSU might have gotten the best of Alabama, but BetMGM has the Crimson Tide as the favorite to have more first-round picks. Alabama is -150 against LSU in that prop bet, and LSU is +125.

Here are the lists of realistic first-round candidates for each team (and let’s just marvel at how loaded each of these squads were):

Alabama: Tagovailoa, OT Jedrick Wills Jr., WR Henry Ruggs III, WR Jerry Jeudy, S Xavier McKinney, EDGE Terrell Lewis, CB Trevon Diggs

LSU: Burrow, EDGE K’Lavon Chaisson, WR Justin Jefferson, LB Patrick Queen, CB Kristian Fulton, S Grant Delpit

Will Roger Goodell stay home for the draft?

  Will Roger Goodell stay home for the draft? When questions first emerged regarding the feasibility of the NFL draft happening in Las Vegas, we pointed out that, as long as Roger Goodell still reads off the first-round picks, it won’t matter if he’s standing on a stage in front of tens of thousands or sitting in his living room with pipe, slippers, dog, [more]

Below they made their selections for the players they believed were picked too high and too low in this year’s draft based on their college football production. Smith was a guy that many people projected to be off the board in the first round . Instead he went after both Iowa tight ends and 30 picks after

The 2019 NFL Draft is rapidly approaching and Odds Shark's Gilles Gallant breaks down his three favorite prop bets for the draft like how many running Alabama ’s Josh Jacobs is all but a lock to go in the first round as scouts and analysts have raved about his work ethic and ability, and he’s been

LSU also has running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, guard Damien Lewis and center Lloyd Cushenberry but they would probably need a big late spike to get into the first round. It’s more likely they land in the latter half of the second round.

Alabama has an edge and the odds reflect that. But all it would take is for someone like Delpit to catch some team’s eye in the first round while Lewis’ injury history pushes him down and Diggs goes from borderline first-round pick to high second-round pick for LSU to have more first-rounders.

Alabama has produced many NFL stars

Alabama players are like low-risk stocks. They were generally five- or four-star players coming out of high school and played in a program that is as close to the NFL as you’ll find in the college game. There is the old notion that Alabama players are worn down before they get to the NFL, but there have been numerous NFL stars come from that program. The NFL likes safe — that might really be the case in this strange year — and Alabama prospects are solid investments.

That’s why taking Alabama at -150 seems like the best play. A lot will have to go right for LSU to have more first-round picks, and with limitations on pre-draft visits due to coronavirus, perhaps we’ll see less fluctuation on draft boards than in other years.

LSU upset Alabama the last time they met. Just don’t expect a repeat on draft day.

Report: Redskins high on Tagovailoa .
If the Redskins stun the football world by taking Tua Tagovailoa and putting Dwayne Haskins on the back-burner, they’ll create a domino effect throughout the rest of the first round. The Lions, for example, could be tempted to bypass trade-back opportunities in order to grab Young, who many believe to be a generational talent. No matter what, the Lions seem to be in excellent position at No. 3.
