FO's BackCAST projections for running backs are here, led by Saquon Barkley. Barkley gets the second highest projection since 1998, behind only Ricky Williams. The Barkley debate is fascinating: we don't advise taking running backs high, but what do you do when there aren't great prospects at the positions we usually advise taking high? Backing the idea of taking Barkley higher than other running backs: he's also by far the best receiving back in this year's class, giving him plenty of value even if the passing game is by far more important than the running game.

Big 12 fans and coaches are not going to like what Mike Mayock had to say about their football conference.The NFL Network draft analyst held a conference call on Friday to discuss the draft. He talked about the Big 12 and while praising their offensive creativity, he questioned their defenses. He pointed out how Oklahoma and Oklahoma State were tied at 38 at halftime of their game. He said that aside from Texas, none of the conference’s defenses were very tough, which makes it really difficult to evaluate the offensive players for the NFL. “You’re not going to like this, and Big 12 coaches aren’t going to like me. I’m just going to say what the — I’ve had a lot of conversations around the league, and sometimes Big 12 football is really hard to watch, especially from a defensive perspective,” Mayock said.“It’s hard to evaluate those guys. … I’m not taking a shot at their style of football. I’m just saying it’s a different evaluation for the NFL people.”Mayock is speaking from a...

The Jaguars would have an interesting setup for Lamar Jackson, employing a recently extended starting quarterback but a long-scrutinized player whose long-term future with the team remains in doubt. Tom Coughlin said Friday the Louisville prospect was an “outstanding young man” and an “extremely talented athlete.” But Dave Caldwell said the team that pulls the trigger on Jackson would have to be ready to adjust its offense to accommodate the dual-threat talent.“He’s a rare athlete,” Caldwell said, via Phillip Heilman of the Florida Times-Union. “As a quarterback, he’s a good player. He won a lot of games at that position. [Drafting him] depends what your scheme is, what you want to do and how you want to play and how he fits. I can’t say he’s the prototypical pocket passer, but you can win games with a guy like him.”Jacksonville holds the draft’s No. 29 overall pick and has not conducted a workout with Jackson, who may now be a full-fledged top-20 prospect.Here’s the latest from...

The reigning Super Bowl MVP has himself a new contract. Quarterback Nick Foles and the Eagles have struck agreement on a revised deal, sources tell Mike Garafolo of NFL.com (on Twitter).  Foles’ new deal includes a mutual option for the 2019 season, giving Foles the opportunity to reach free agency next spring. Originally, Foles was slated to reach the free agency market after the 2018 campaign. The new deal gives him a $2MM signing bonus and several millions in incentives if he’s the starter and hits certain benchmarks, a source tells NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport (on Twitter).The new pact is about giving him extra compensation in light of his postseason performance and not a reflection of the team’s feeling on Wentz’s recovery, according to Garafolo. The Eagles remain confident that Wentz will be back at 100% this season.With Wentz on the mend, trade rumors surrounding Foles swirled this offseason. The Eagles, who value Foles and want to have a quality backstop in the event of another...

NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock thinks that the Cleveland Browns will take Sam Darnold with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.Mayock held a conference call on Friday with other media members to answer questions about the upcoming draft. He was asked what he thinks the Browns will do with their first pick.“If you’re asking me for my gut feel, just based on all the film work I’ve done and talking to people around the league, et cetera, my gut tells me that at one, Cleveland will take Sam Darnold,” Mayock said, via the Akron Beacon Journal.Mayock is a fan of Josh Allen, ranking him as his second quarterback and saying he has a high ceiling. But he thinks the Browns will go with the USC product over him. That differs from what another NFL Network draft analyst has said.As far as quarterbacks go, Mayock ranks Darnold first, then Allen, then Josh Rosen, Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson.

The much-awaited NFL schedule release took place on Thursday when each team was allowed to share their upcoming 2018 schedules on social media.Among one of the more crafty teams to divulge their 2018 schedule was the New Orleans Saints. This video took a ton of creativity and must have been made by somebody who is not afraid of touching some live, southern crawfish.Let us introduce the “Crawfish Boil.” Cleverly, the Saints — one by one — put crawfish wearing 16 opposing team helmets into a pot of boiling water.The drift here is pretty obvious. New Orleans plans to beat each and every team it is faced with in 2018. The Saints’ team opponents range from the Cleveland Browns to a pesky Minnesota Vikings squad that beat them in the Divisional Playoffs.However the season plays out, the Saints definitely earn an “A” grade in the creativity category.
