Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib's private workout schedule as of now: Browns on Thurs; Jaguars on Fri; Bills on Sun; visiting AZ Cards next week.
@TonyPauline: Interesting; Seattle Seahawks to privately workout Matt Scott/QB/Arizona later this week..Scott reportedly up to 221lbs vs 213lbs at combine
@PatKirwanCBS: Just looked @NFL starting left tackles-19 of 32 are 1strd picks. Add 3 more this yr & 22 of 32 will be 1st rd guys 69% of LT are 1st rd guys

Ezekiel Ansah/DE/BYU; visiting Eagles today then on to Cleveland & Arizona...Ansah has no visit or workout scheduled with New York Jets
@TDESPN: Be very careful when u dumb down QB evals to arm strength & accuracy. Many different forms of arm talent & many different types of accuracy
@MoveTheSticks: Finished Southern Miss LB Jamie Collins. Athletic, better as blitzer than pure pass rusher, can hold point of attack vs TE's. Late 2/early 3
Brian Billick @CoachBillick
Easy comparison for Vance McDonald is former #Rice TE Casey but I see Dustin Keller. Similar build & athlete but inconsistent hands catcher.
Stanford's Ertz similar to Gresham. Both 6'5, natural hands catchers, quicker than fast, great body positioning & versatile in alignment.
The more I study Ryan Nassib the more I see Andy Dalton. Both intelligent but must work on read progressions & improve deep ball accuracy.
Geno's neg. report wasn't from official team scout, but timing is right for "leaked" info to inflate/deflate stock for benefit of team.

New York Jets targeting Zach Ertz/TE/Stanford or Sylvester Williams/NY/North Carolina in the 2nd: http://www.draftinsider.net/
Not glad to hear that it's out there for the other 31 teams.
With this in mind, OLB and guard (if we trade Revis and have multiple picks) are probably the priorities. My guess is that Nassib and Barkley are now out of the question (I doubted either would be there at 39).
Maybe this is why the late interest in Dysert.
It's one thing to have those guys in mind but the draft board at that point in time almost never looks how teams project it. There is usually one 'oh ****! I never thought he would be there!' players early in the 2nd round.
If they're going to make an immediate impact and be a starter right away, why not draft them ahead of the 2nd?
Warmack is the premier guard in this draft. He is a true mauler and is the best prospect I have ever seen at the position - including last year's top guard, David DeCastro. With an offensive line of Warmack, D'Brickashaw Ferguson, Nick Mangold, Willie Colon, and Austin Howard, the New York Jets will suddenly have one of the most dominating lines in the league.
Round Two - Alex Okafor, DE/OLB
Okafor is an extremely well-rounded defensive end/outside linebacker that is particularly skilled at rushing the passer.
