    And i dont see how Warmack is a value over Cooper in the wco at all either, but people here keep talking about him.

    Finally got tape of D.J. Hayden…I'm a big fan. Smooth, explosive & tough... he can play the ball in the air. Hopefully medical checks out

    @JasonColeYahoo: Tyrann Mathieu said he failed at least 10 drug tests while playing at LSU. Man, I just love how college coaches teach players hard lessons.

    NC State CB David Amerson gets beat A LOT! However, main problem is eye-discipline. Great size, quick feet, plenty of speed.

    Agreed 100%. Watched CP make mince meat out of him last year. Would be a good Safety. Not a CB.

    @ChiTribSports: Emery repeats No. 20 pick for sale on draft day http://t.co/T3jmr9uMTl

    For those who missed Phil Emery’s announcement last month at the outset of free agency, the Chicago Bears general manager repeated it on Tuesday.

    The 20th pick in the first round of the NFL draft is for sale.

    Emery continued to talk about the possibilities of trading down when the team goes on the clock April 25. The Bears are without third- and seventh-round picks because of trades for wide receiver Brandon Marshall and defensive tackle Brian Price last year. Emery would like to add some depth to the draft and one national scout for another organization said it’s a strong draft through about the top 50 picks or so. The Bears’ pick in the second round is at No. 50.

    “We’ve already had a couple teams that have approached us,” Emery said. “I’ve approached a couple during owners meetings. There are talks. They’re back and forth. They’re kicking things around. It doesn’t get serious until you get close to the pick. My experience is that you may get two or three (teams calling) about three or four spots before your pick and then you may get more at that pick, but it gets real serious when you’re on the clock.

    “Certainly we’ve had discussions and we’ll see how it goes. It depends on whether our player’s at that spot and we feel like he has the value that we don’t want to move out of the pick, or whether their player’s on that spot.”

    Emery said the Bears will enter the draft with a short list of players too good to pass on at No. 20 even if there is an offer to trade down. Then, there will be a deeper list of about six or seven players to select at the pick and a shorter list of players to consider in a trade-down scenario.

    Would Emery deal all the way down into the second round from No. 20?

    “I’ll go back as far back as we feel like we’re really getting a good deal,” he said. “If somebody’s going to wow us. I’ll just throw an arbitrary number at 34 and we feel like that’s going to bring tremendous value to us and help upgrade our club significantly, we’ll go there. We’re not adverse to any scenario as long as see positive value out of it.”

    Because personnel men feel there is depth to the top part of the draft, it may be difficult for the Bears to peddle the No. 20 pick and move backward because other teams will see the same depth. But if a club has a player or position in mind, bidding could begin. Emery would love to see one of the teams at the top of the second round get the urge to make a considerable jump up to draft a quarterback, a scenario that could unfold.

    “I’m hoping it does,” he said. “That would provide us value, if somebody’s really coming at 20 for a quarterback then they’re going to be willing to bring some picks to the party. So that’s a good thing.”

    @seniorbowl: If running 4-3 defense, Ziggy as DE. If in a
    3-4, Jordan is bigger and may have more overall tools than Mingo.

    @seniorbowl: The problem in developing Ziggy as OLB is that the job requires multiple responsibilities against the run and pass.

    @seniorbowl: As 4-3 DE, ZA can concentrate on one primary thing...getting upfield to the QB. NFL game demands protecting and pressuring QB.

    @seniorbowl: One more comment on ZA, @seniorbowl, he actually played well against the run with explosive hands to separate and long arms to tackle.

    @seniorbowl: Re: Chance Warmack. If a team cannot fill a hole at QB, LT, DE/pass rusher or DC, then going OG is not a problem. He is a day 1 starter.

    @seniorbowl: DC, of course, is defensive corner in scouting parlance. That's why in mock drafts at #8, Warmack starting to get matched with Bills.

    @seniorbowl: As much as Ziggy is getting play at top of draft, Cornelius Washington in the 2nd or 3rd round has generated some buzz at that level.

    @seniorbowl: @seniorbowl will be posting our "Mystery Prospects" later tonight or tomorrow and C Washington is on that list. He had a half sack in 2012.

    @seniorbowl: But, CW responded @seniorbowl with a tackle, tfl and sack/fumble in 2 quarters and then ran 4.55, benched 36x and jumped 39". Has DE traits.

    @seniorbowl: Like Ansah, C Washington's best chance to maximize his talent will be as a 4-3 DE. Wasting his potential trying to fit him into a 3-4.

    @seniorbowl: @seniorbowl really thinks NYJ and TENN will stay put. Jets will go OLB or WR. TENN will look hard at Warmack/Cooper or possibly DT.

    The two fastest rising linebackers in the draft? Arthur Brown of Kansas State and Sio Moore of UConn. Several people on the inside continue to tell me Brown is a definite first round pick, which like means Kevin Minter or Manti Te’o are likely out. I’m told teams love Moore not only for his measurables but also because he’s scheme diverse. Right now I’m told top 50 is a possibility and evidently the New York Jets are very high on Moore.

    @NFL_ATL Falcons reportedly looking to trade up from No. 30 http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000160673/article/report-atlanta-falcons-looking-to-trade-up-from-no-30?campaign=Twitter_atl …

    It's that time of year. The draft rumors are going to start flying fast and furious over the next week.

    SI.com's Peter King hears that the Atlanta Falcons are looking to trade up from the No. 30 spot in the first round.

    Atlanta's biggest needs are at cornerback and defensive end. Marc Sessler passed along similar buzz on Saturday from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution; the newspaper said that Atlanta wanted to move up for a cornerback.

    Florida State's Xavier Rhodes is a sensible target; Washington's Desmond Trufant could be another possibility. Even though the local paper is saying cornerback, a defensive linemen makes more sense to us as a target. The draft class is deeper with pass rushers.

    Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff has shown in the past he's not afraid to deal on draft day. The Falcons have an extra fourth-round pick to play with this year.


    Peter King ‏@SI_PeterKing
    I am not sure who the Falcons want. Tyler Eifert makes sense. Athletic DT makes sense. They can sit at 30 and get a corner.

    They are a little cash strapped in the coming years. They will need to pay Julio soon as well.

    Indy could be a "surprise" team though.
