The Rams are closer to being on the clock Friday, and executives and agents sense that tackles and pass rushers will be more in demand and QBs Jimmy Clausen and Colt McCoy could fall into the middle of the second round.
The Chiefs and Browns might address other concerns, and the Bills could end up taking a tackle. The Raiders, sources said, aren’t in the quarterback market this high, but they likely will take a passer such as Northwestern’s Mike Kafka later in the draft.
The floor for Clausen would be the 49ers with the 49th pick, and the Panthers have interest in McCoy at No. 48. The Seahawks could move up from No. 60 to take Clausen as well. But bold moves at the top of the round don’t appear to materializing right now.
