  NFL | Several teams interested in T.Y. Hilton    Thu May 19, 05:19 PM

Free-agent WR T.Y. Hilton (Colts) continues to talk with the Indianapolis Colts but has also talked with two other teams, according to The Athletic's Stephen Holder.

Footballguys view: There's still a chance Hilton sticks with the Colts for another season. He's in no rush to sign, and if other teams are showing interest Hilton might get a little more money than some expect. Hilton could stay with the Colts as a downfield threat for new QB Matt Ryan, although he's not the same player he used to be.

  NFL | Serious injury for Tarik Cohen    Tue May 17, 08:42 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Tarik Cohen (Achilles) suffered a torn Achilles' tendon during his workout Tuesday, May 17.

Footballguys view: Devastating news for Cohen, who was coming back from an ACL tear in 2020 after not playing last year. This could be it for the diminutive playmaker, which is sad because he peaked at age 23 with over 1000 total yards and eight scores, suggesting the best was yet to come if he had remained healthy.

  NFL | Tarik Cohen injured during training    Tue May 17, 02:16 PM

Free-agent RB Tarik Cohen (Bears) appeared to suffer a significant lower leg injury while training Tuesday, May 17.

Footballguys view: There has been some speculation from training video posted on social media that he may have torn his right Achilles. Cohen was still trying to get back after a horrific knee injury in 2020 knocked him out of the entire 2021 season. This latest setback could be career threatening.

  NFL | Richard Sherman in talks with Amazon    Mon May 9, 11:04 AM

Free-agent CB Richard Sherman (Buccaneers) is in talks with Amazon for a key broadcasting role in their programming for this coming season, according to sources. Sherman hasn't ruled out a return to the field, though, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport notes.

Footballguys view: Sherman is a no-nonsense guy who could bring a lot to the table in broadcasting. With Amazon getting into broadcasting NFL games, they need to do something to set themselves apart - and hiring a guy like Sherman would do that.

  NFL | George Pickens reveals teams with most interest    Wed Apr 27, 02:28 PM

Georgia WR George Pickens believes he'll be drafted somewhere between pick Nos. 25 and 45. He also revealed the Green Bay Packers, Kansas City Chiefs and Arizona Cardinals are among the teams that have done the most homework on him.

Footballguys view: Pickens has WR1 ability in the pros. However, he missed 11 games in 2021 due to a knee injury so any team who selects him will have to hope he can return to pre-injury form. Pickens has good ball-tracking ability and can win in the air. He should be a second-round pick in the 2022 NFL draft.

  NFL | James Cook had several top-30 visits    Wed Apr 27, 02:24 PM

Georgia RB James Cook had top-30 visits with the New York Giants, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills, Tennessee Titans, Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: Cook is one of the most exciting running backs in this draft class when you're talking change-of-pace players. The younger brother of superstar Dalvin Cook (Vikings), James Cook lacks the size and inside rushing ability to be more than a part-time player. However, teams who know how to use his ability in space and as a receiving back should get a playmaker at the pro level. Cook should be a mid-round pick in the 2022 NFL draft.

  NFL | Teams not concerned with Jameson Williams' injury    Mon Apr 25, 02:33 PM

Alabama WR Jameson Williams (knee) isn't likely to slide in the 2022 NFL Draft due to his ACL reconstruction, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network on Monday, April 25. 'Obviously, an ACL is a concern for any player. Teams like to know what exactly they are getting. It doesn't seem like it's that much of a concern to me from the teams I've spoken with. I don't know if he's going to be the first receiver taken, but he is going to be taken very high. I would not be surprised if he is a top-15 pick, ACL or not,' Rapoport said.

  NFL | Phillip Lindsay looking for right fit    Sun Apr 24, 07:33 PM

Free-agent RB Phillip Lindsay (Dolphins) said he is looking for the right fit and is not in a hurry to sign with a new team.

Footballguys view: What's the right fit for Lindsay? He said he wouldn't mind going back to the Broncos, where he had back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2019/2020. Since 2020, Lindsay has bounced around to three different teams (Broncos, Dolphins, Texans) and his two-down skill set just isn't that coveted. Teams know he's not a receiving threat and is not a pile pusher in between the tackles.

  NFL | Matt Corral drawing character concerns    Sun Apr 24, 01:05 PM

Ole Miss QB Matt Corral has character concerns, an unnamed offensive coordinator told Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated. 'He's kind of a mess,' the offensive coordinator said. 'His offense was a true college offense, he pushes the ball, he plays reckless with his body, he won't hold up playing the way he did in college. And there are character concerns. I'm not sure you want him leading your program, his sorts of issues aren't the kind solved by giving a kid millions of dollars.' Another offensive coordinator told Breer that word is Corral is 'a big party guy' but that 'he'll tell you he's gotten himself together.'

Footballguys view: Ah yes, "anonymous scout" continues to hand out nuggets of "information" right before the draft. This isn't a scout but an OC who was talking to Breer. It's April, it's the month of lies, so take this with not a grain of salt - but a block of salt like a cow licks. Yes, Corral may have some issues with his playing style (he plays with little regard for his safety) but the kid has resiliency that few in college football possess. He's a second-round talent with the upside to be what everyone thought Baker Mayfield would be (but isn't).

Footballguys view: Corbin has the speed to take it to the house from anywhere on the field. He's a reserve-level runner but could contribute more as a pass-catcher from the position. Corbin is a priority free agent with enough versatility to latch on with a practice squad (at least) in 2022.

  NFL | Kenny Pickett draws criticism from evaluator    Fri Apr 22, 02:13 PM

Pittsburgh QB Kenny Pickett might be the most NFL-ready quarterback in the 2022 NFL Draft, but lacks upside, an unnamed talent evaluator told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The evaluator also questions Pickett's arm strength, saying 'there's nothing special about it.'

Footballguys view: Ah yes, it's late April so the dreaded "anonymous scout" is making the rounds. Everyone under the sun knows Pickett is a safe pick but lacks the upside of someone like Malik Willis (Liberty). It's not a shock for talent evaluators in the NFL to feel that way. Pickett could still be the first quarterback off the board in the 2022 NFL draft.

Alabama WR John Metchie (knee) is 'like a freak show with how far ahead he is' in his recovery from the torn anterior cruciate ligament he suffered on Dec. 4, according to Jeff Howe of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Metchie tore his ACL in the SEC Championship Game last December, and he's been recovering ever since then. He knows how to run routes with the best of them, and he is competitive after the catch. We think Metchie goes off the board in the third round - even with him still recovering from his ACL injury.

Coastal Carolina TE Isaiah Likely has reportedly met with all 32 teams in some capacity at or since the Senior Bowl, including 'Top 30' visits with the New York Jets, Buffalo Bills and Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Likely is no longer a "sleeper" in this draft class. He was thrust onto the national radar at the Senior Bowl earlier this year, but NFL scouts have always appreciated his game. Likely is a touchdown hog with a nice size/athleticism combination. He plays like a super-sized wide receiver, but that's a skill set that can serve him well at the tight end position in the pros. Expect him to be a mid-round pick, perhaps as soon as the third round, in the 2022 NFL draft.

As previously reported, Samuel has been linked to the New York Jets, Green Bay Packers, Kansas City Chiefs, and Detroit Lions as potential trade destinations.

Footballguys view: All the other 31 teams should like Samuel. The 49ers insist he's not on the trade block, and things could end up working themselves out. For now, Samuel has requested a trade and several teams are interested. Who knows if anything will come to fruition before the 2022 NFL draft next week.
