Texans NFL Draft grades: Blake Fisher, OT, Notre Dame 59th overall

The Houston Texans have made it a top priority to surround their franchise quarterback in C.J. Stroud with plenty of talent, and they managed to do so again with more protection for the young signal caller with the selection of Notre Dame offensive tackle Blake Fisher. Fisher projects as a potential immediate starter at right tackle should the Texans want to kick current right tackle Tytus Howard inside to his more natural position at guard and allow the rookie to take over. Fisher does need some development and could be a liability if thrust into action right away, so it’s likely his camp and ..read more

The Detroit Lions double dip after snagging Alabama corner Terrion Arnold in the first round and snag a player that surprisingly fell to them in Missouri cornerback Ennish Rakestraw to help fill out a young and talented secondary in the Motor City. Rakestraw does not project as an immediate starter given the amount of young talent in the Detroit secondary, but should see snaps regardless in a rotation or in lighter pass defense packages. This was a pick that was clearly thinking into the future, and should give the Lions time to mold Rakestraw and refine his game even further. Related Bills NF ..read more

In a matchup that will sure to pull quite the audience, 2023 No. 1 overall pick Bryce Young and his Carolina Panthers will face off against this year’s No. 1 overall pick, Caleb Williams, and his Chicago Bears in Week 5 of the 2024 season.

It’s always a complicated decision for a college player who isn’t projected to get selected early on to leave early and declare for the NFL draft. For Ohio State running back Miyan Williams, the choice to jump to the NFL has not gone well thus far. Williams has yet to find an NFL home. The 5-foot-8, 229-pound running back went undrafted last month, and he’s thus far been unable to land a contract as an undrafted free agent with any teams. As Mike Clay notes, Williams is the only offensive skill position player who was at the NFL Scouting Combine who remains a free agent. Random nugget: Ohio S ..read more

The Buffalo Bills had an entire legion of veterans depart this offseason, including the breaking up of one of the best safety duos in NFL history following the departure of and Micah Hyde. The Bills looked to address one of the holes with the selection of Utah safety Cole Bishop in the second round. Bishop projects as potentially the immediate starter at the safety position, pairing with veteran Taylor Rapp to produce a potentially surprisingly productive duo should Bishop live up to his potential coming out of this draft. With high end athleticism, versatility, explosion, and aggressiveness ..read more
