    Lawrence has reportedly had the Jaguars playbook for weeks. Guessing that's because the team plans on drafting him on Thursday night. Call it a hunch.

    We have no idea what happens here but Kyle Shanahan was at his best when he was calling plays for Matt Ryan. That doesn't mean he isn't having visions of doing even more with a talent like Trey Lance, we just don't know because the 49ers have been tight-lipped about their intentions.

    The Bengals need to protect Joe Burrow, but we've heard that they could instead take Ja'Marr Chase. Perhaps the thinking is that they can just circle back early in Round 2 to get offensive line help. Put another way: Cincy prefers WR1 plus OT5 over, say, OT1 plus WR5.

    The Bengals shipped Ereck Flowers back to Washington, perhaps indicating that they'll target offensive line here ... except the team signed D.J. Fluker this offseason. We still think they'll go with a game- changing talent like Jaylen Waddle, giving Tua Tagovailoa a much-needed deep threat.

    If we're the Lions we're taking Justin Fields all day long, but new GM Brad Holmes, who came from the Rams, may think that Jared Goff can make it work (related: if Goff couldn't make it work in Sean McVay's system then we don't have high hopes for him in Detroit). If that's the case, the Lions could entertain trade offers -- this feels like the most likely spot to get the most trade-up action from QB-needy teams -- or go about protecting Goff. We have them doing the latter.

    We gotta a trade, y'all. The Patriots filled every need on their roster in free agency except quarterbacks. Yes, Cam Newton signed a one-year deal but, well, it was a one-year deal. A seven-win season didn't sit well with Bill Belichick and he's going after his next franchise QB here.

    Some teams like Horn more than Patrick Surtain so it won't be a huge surprise if he goes off the board first. The Broncos traded for Teddy Bridgewater, just like Jason La Canfora reported last week, which presumably puts them out of the QB race, at least in this spot. Instead, Horn gives coach Vic Fangio a playmaker in the secondary.

    It's almost impossible to know what GM Dave Gettleman might do here though we do know he's partial to big guys -- which would explain why he might choose to pass on DeVonta Smith. This EDGE class isn't expected to start going off the board until the middle of the round but Kwity Paye has the athletic traits to go slightly higher than that, and New York has to get better at getting after the QB.

    The Eagles traded out of No. 6, presumably because they're out of the QB market. They'd love to get a cornerback here but with Horn and Surtain gone, they give Jalen hurts a big-play weapon, reuniting him with former Alabama teammate, DeVonta Smith -- who, by the way, would be the first WR drafted if he weighed 186 instead of 166.
