WISE Sports Radio NFL talk: 49ers’draft rumors, Panthers trade buzz, Tim Tebow-Urban Meyer reunion (maybe)

The NFL Draft is finally here! In the hours leading up to pro football’s annual player selection meeting, there are still plenty of trade rumors. Anybody moving up? Who’s moving down? And everyone wants to know what the San Francisco 49ers will do with the No. 3 overall selection.

The Cleveland Browns suddenly have a formidable defensive line, adding Jadeveon Clowney to a corps that already included Myles Garrett and Sheldon Richardson. Add Takk McKinley and the Browns could put opposing quarterbacks on notice. That led off our WISE Sports Radio NFL segment for the week.

Pat Ryan, Mike Gore, and I also discussed quarterback Justin Fields and which teams might be interested in drafting the Ohio State star. Would the Carolina Panthers take him after making a deal for Sam Darnold last week? And how many players will skip offseason workouts because of the NFL’s current apathy toward COVID protocols?
