[UPDATE 4:13 p.m.] - 2 from Dianna Russini:
The Titans are making calls about trading down and the Texans are trying to get a first round pick:
I’d file this in the category as “right on brand”, I’m told the Texans have called some teams to trade up into the first round. Bill O’Brien never scared to make a trade. #Texans— Dianna Russini (@diannaESPN) April 23, 2020
[UPDATE 3:40 p.m.] - The Jags called the Lions about the third pick. If Tua ends up in Jacksonville I will be physically ill.
Here’s something worth monitoring tonight: Jaguars’ GM Dave Caldwell just called Lions’ GM Bob Quinn about this evening’s picks, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 23, 2020
[UPDATE 2:07 p.m.] - Jordan Love expected to create movement if still available in the 20s:
Hours before draft, there's been much talk among GMs about potential late-first-round moves, with Minnesota as a key cog in the discussions. This is mostly groundwork, since draft boards need to shake out. One GM said he expects Jordan Love to create movement if he's there in 20s— Jeremy Fowler (@JFowlerESPN) April 23, 2020
[UPDATE 10:37 a.m.] - The Dolphins have been trying to get up to #1 for Joe Burrow. The Bengals said no.
Over the last couple of weeks, the Dolphins called the Bengals on more than one occasion to see if Cincinatti would be willing to trade the No. 1 overall pick. The Dolphins were told, in no uncertain terms, no. Cincinnati would not trade the pick and would stay put at No. 1.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 23, 2020

We will be keeping track of the 2020 NFL Draft rumors and news in this thread today. I always feel the need to remind you that there are a lot more lies that truths out there right now. We have seen a lot of things floated already, like Jerry Jeudy falling in the first round because of knee injury concerns, that have already pretty much been debunked. Don’t believe everything that is reported.
The biggest current NFL player to keep an eye right now is Yannick Ngakoue. The Jaguars franchised him, but he has made it clear that he will not play for them. I see a lot of #FreeYann from Titans fans on Twitter. Titans fans should be cheering for the Jags to free him because that means they get another first round pick (although they will probably screw that up anyway). We should be cheering for him to stay there, hold out, and cause a bunch of problems for the Jaguars off the field.
We will keep you updated with this and all of the other rumors here.
