Mike Mayock has become over the past 15 years one of the top NFL draft experts. After this draft, we may be benefiting from his expertise for only three more of them.
I signed a five-year deal a year and a half ago so after this draft I have another three drafts, Mayock tells Richard Deitsch of TheAthletic.com. At that point, I want to take a step back. The draft is all-encompassing and I love it but at age 62 [in three years] I might want to coach a high school team. There is a part of me that wants to get involved on the football side, whether it is in the NFL or coaching defensive backs at a local high school.
I think this is a very desirable place and job, and I think a lot of candidates will see and understand the vision that we have, the type of people that we are, Perry said earlier this week.

[You have to] understand the complexity of today’s NBA game from an analytic standpoint, from a physical development standpoint, from a player development standpoint. A good coach is willing to embrace all those things.
The Patriots now have a pair of first-round picks 鈥?the 23rd and 31st overall selections 鈥?and need a receiver, although they are expecting the return to health of Julian Edelman. Go ahead and bug Bill Belichick’s phone to see if he dials up Giants general manager Dave Gettleman, but do not hold your breath on that one.
The Rams and their general manager, Les Snead, are wheeling and dealing this offseason and Cooks is the latest prize. Cooks lasted only one year in New England, catching 65 passes for 1,082 yards and seven touchdowns.
