    The Jaguars may have won the draft, but they don't want to count on rookies to win games.

    The Broncos had been rumored to be after a bunch of different options, but in the end they drafted Paxton Lynch instead.

    Two days after the 2016 NFL draft ended and you are already looking ahead to next year? So too are scouts, who see a class full of running backs, edge rushers and versatile linebackers.

    The Giants, Raiders, and Jets are rising while the Chargers, Bucs and 49ers are falling. But the team with the most-improved odds is a very big surprise.

    04/27/16LBNeiron BallKneePROBABLEBall (knee) is "doing everything" and expected to be "ready to roll" for the offseason program by Raiders' GM Reggie McKenzie.

    Ball emerged in Week 5 of last season by holding Denver TE Owen Daniels without a catch on five targets. The performance earned him his first career start versus San Diego in Week 6, but shortly into the game he suffered a knee sprain and was ruled out by halftime. Ball will serve as depth for an imposing Raiders' outside linebacking corps in 2016 behind Khalil Mack, Bruce Irvin, Malcolm Smith and perhaps Aldon Smith (suspension), should he return in November.

    04/27/16RBRoy HeluHipPROBABLEHelu recently underwent surgery for a hip impingement and is expected to have the same procedure on his other hip soon, ESPN's Adam Caplin reports.

    Helu struggled in his first season as a Raider, playing merely nine games and totaling just 39 rushing yards, 75 receiving yards and one touchdown on 26 offensive touches. In wake of those troubles, Helu's offseason hip procedures figure to help him regain some flexibility going forward, as he hopes to improve next season.

    04/27/16RBMarcel ReeceSuspensionSUSPENDReece has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs, CSN Bay Area reports.

    Reece, who will sit out Sunday's season finale against the Chiefs, is thus eligible to return to action after the Raiders' third game of the 2016 season. In the meantime, he can participate in all of the team's offseason and preseason practices and games.

    04/27/16LBAldon SmithSuspensionSUSPENDThe Raiders and Smith (suspension) agreed to a two-year contract Monday, the team's official site reports.

    In the midst of a one-year suspension for another violation of the NFL's policy for substances of abuse, Smith will remain where he spent the first nine games of the 2015 season, when he contributed 3.5 sacks among 28 tackles to the Raiders' pass rush. It remains to be seen whether he'll be strictly contained to a one-year ban, as the commissioner's office has been known to do their due diligence once a suspended player applies for reinstatement. Depending on further adjustments made to the defense in the offseason, free-agent addition Bruce Irvin appears set to man strongside linebacker in the meantime.

    Miami Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    04/27/16DBIfo Ekpre-OlomuKneePROBABLEThe Dolphins claimed Ekpre-Olomu off waivers from the Browns on Tuesday.

    Ekpre-Olomu has endured a rough 16-month stretch due to a torn ACL sustained in a December of 2014 practice while still a student-athlete at the University of Oregon. Projected to be plucked in the first or second round of the 2015 NFL Draft, he tumbled to the seventh round and upheld the expectation that he wouldn't play as a rookie. With new management in Cleveland, a recent MRI on the knee was concerning enough for the organization to cut ties with the cornerback, but the Dolphins will nonetheless see if Ekpre-Olomu can channel his previous talent.

    04/27/16DLDion JordanSuspensionSUSPENDMiami is open to having Jordan return to the team, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

    Jordan was suspended for all of the 2015 season for violating the League's substance abuse policy. The Dolphins still need help along the defensive line even with the addition of Mario Williams. Miami will meet with Jordan and if he convinces them that he is serious about staying in the NFL they will welcome him back to the team.

    04/27/16LBChris McCainKneePROBABLEMcCain (knee) season ended Tuesday as he was placed on IR, reports the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.

    McCain and Koa Misi were both placed on IR after the game Sunday. McCain's 2015 campaign ends with two whole tackles and a sack. Safe to say he won't be missed.

    04/27/16DLCameron WakeAchilles PROBABLEWake (Achilles) ran sprints with no noticeable limp at voluntary minicamp on Tuesday, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

    Wake also took part in a sack drill that required hand and hip movement. He presumably isn't ready to make hard cuts, but it does seem he's on/ahead of schedule in his recovery from the torn Achilles he suffered in late October. The 34-year-old defensive end is believed to be seeking an extension as he enters the final year of his contract, and the Dolphins presumably hope to reduce his $9.8 million cap hit for 2016. If not for the major injury, it would actually be a very reasonable price tag for a player that had seven sacks and four forced fumbles in seven games last season.
