The 49ers drafted Foster 31st overall last year after questions about his health and character caused him to drop from being a possible top 10 pick.
Ridley and Moore are excellent options for the former type of receiver. Ridley might not have ideal top-end speed, but he’s good at creating separation both on the perimeter and in the middle, and he can catch everything. Moore can take over games with volume and can take any play to the house.
Right in Dallas’ own backyard is Sutton, a behemoth (6-3, 218 pounds) who can both outrun cornerbacks and go up and get the ball over them, a la Bryant. Ridley is the safest. Sutton has the highest upside. Moore combines both of those elements. Any of the three would make Prescott happy.
If Dallas’ first-round pick is not a wideout, then it must be defensive line or offensive line, in that order of selection preference should the Cowboys stay at No. 19.
Fox Sports acquired the rights to “Thursday Night Football” through 2022 for $3.3 billion in January and will avoid another red-green debacle like 2015’s Bills-Jets game or the ketchup-mustard game between the Buccaneers and Rams.
Last season, some Washington players reportedly refused to wear their all-mustard-yellow color rush uniforms and, according to former Redskins tight end and current radio personality Chris Cooley, instead opted for a burgundy jersey with burgundy bottoms.
The Packers make a play for Notre Dame’s Quenton Nelson if the guard falls into the double-digit picks. Nelson is the best offensive lineman in the draft, and that would get Rodgers’ attention. Green Bay hasn’t drafted an offensive lineman in the first round since Derek Sherrod in 2010, but Nelson would be a perfect fit. Could the Packers get new Hall of Fame inductee Jerry Kramer to announce the pick?
The Packers can add another tight end or receiver, and Penn State’s Mike Gesicki, a freakish tight end who would pair well with new acquisition Jimmy Graham, or Oklahoma State’s James Washington, the Biletnikoff Award winner who averaged 19.8 yards per catch for his career with the Cowboys, would be options. Auburn guard Braden Smith also should be on the Packers’ Day 2 radar.
