I don't know who's making the decisions. But it isn't Bruce Allen
There was a Haskins-related question but Rivera leaned hard into the Kyle Allen aspect of the question, and at no point took any other opportunity to mention or discuss the presumed starting QB. https://t.co/KMiqooYedI— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) April 8, 2020
Do no overreact to Rivera comments in Kyle Allen having a leg up at QB if they only had “two weeks to go”when camp opens. they wanted him, b/c they know him and he knows the O. So yes in an unprecedented situation the guy with the most experience in an O would have a leg up.— John Keim (@john_keim) April 8, 2020
Where Haskins is truly at with it until they get him on the field. So for now Allen gives them one QB they KNOW can call plays and make proper reads in this O. Doesn’t mean Haskins won’t or can’t. Just means they have insurance. But then he has to learn guys he’s throwing to.— John Keim (@john_keim) April 8, 2020

From McGinn's Athletic article. Scout's take on Isaiah Simmons: pic.twitter.com/9EWUFZi6zi— Jesse Fritsch (@FritschJesse) April 8, 2020
I see some of the negative things that this scout is talking about with Simmons, but that's why I don't want him as a free safety or as a slot defender. I've pegged him as a Mike.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) April 9, 2020
If you don't play him as a DB, then his lack of ability to play DB doesn't matter, I guess? https://t.co/ExNsf4F4Dl
The theme of this draft- speed! Every team I talk to mentions the importance of getting faster. Teams like KC & BAL are going to be an obstacle for a LONG time. Need explosive plays/playmakers on both sides of the ball.— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) April 8, 2020
If you think Justin Herbert should be a top ten pick and week one starter, I would like to direct your attention to the Cal game.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) April 8, 2020
I've seen this game three times now, and I still finding myself saying "yikes" out loud every couple minutes.
Start him year one at your own peril.
It’s no secret the #Redskins need a tight end. Hunter Bryant is projected to be a 3rd-4th round pick. I broke down his game, how he’d fit and the keys for him to be successful at the next level. https://t.co/E5DqUbNbSZ— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) April 8, 2020
Howard Stern trying really hard to coax Tom Brady into saying something interesting…. and finding out what Boston media has learned over the past 20 years.— Kevin Patra (@kpatra) April 8, 2020
Tom Brady tells Howard Stern he probably knew before last season it was his last in New England. This is a fascinating interview @SIRIUSXM— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) April 8, 2020
An hour into Tom Brady’s interview with @HowardStern and the realest line is this: “I never cared about legacy.” The #Bucs QB is going deep on his departure from the #Patriots and why he needed something new. “I probably knew before the start of last season it was my last year.”— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 8, 2020
“No. Absolutely not.” - Tom Brady on if he resents Bill Belichick didn’t make in a Patriot for life.— James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) April 8, 2020
Tom Brady on Howard Stern: "School was a lot harder for me (than sports) because I didn't have much of an interest in school. ... I was smart enough to get by giving very average effort."— Ryan Hannable (@RyanHannable) April 8, 2020
“He’s pretty spectacular.” - Tom Brady on Patrick Mahomes.— James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) April 8, 2020
From @NFLTotalAccess: After Tom Brady disclosed today that he knew before the season that he'd likely be playing elsewhere, let's look at when the #Patriots knew. pic.twitter.com/3hlEuvbbUY— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 8, 2020
Was just looking over our free agency trackers. Looks as if there are about 190 unrestricted free agents still out there and about 50 players who were cut and remain unsigned.— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) April 8, 2020
Kelce has 4 straight seasons over 1000 yards. Graham has 2 in his career. Also, Kelce blocks people with his body. Part of the job of tight end. https://t.co/vTV3KhRZoG— Geoff Schwartz (@geoffschwartz) April 6, 2020
The Jets have finished in the bottom 10 of the NFL in points scored in 7 of the last 8 seasons. New York is in the bottom 3 in points scored over that time period, covering all of the Maccagnan and Idzik eras, and 3 head coaches (Ryan, Bowles, Gase).— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) April 8, 2020

Falcons planned to unveil their new uniforms next week but, due to leaks last night, they decided to release them today. They still do not go on sale until April 14.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 8, 2020
Bucs did the right thing. The uniforms they had the last 5 years were flat out terrible. Not sure how I feel about Atlanta’s yet.— Eric Espada (@ericespada) April 8, 2020

Soooo I am watching ESPN2 playing these old Ali fights and out of nowhere they say.....— Robert Littal (@BSO) April 8, 2020
"Due to time constraints we have to move along in the action..."
What constraints are they referring to? There are no sports. It is a taped fight from the 70s lol.
The nfl is making the draft way more complicated than it needs to be arent they?— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) April 8, 2020

I don’t see the NFL having any problems with a virtual draft. In the XFL, both our October and November Drafts were virtual and went off without any glitches— Greg Gabriel (@greggabe) April 8, 2020
