Here are 10 things I think about with this year’s NFL Draft: Two wide receivers - at most - will be drafted in the first round. D.K. Metcalf will be one of them, but maybe not even the first one. Oklahoma’s Marquise “Hollywood” Brown may go before him if a team covets his speed. Those may be the...

On Monday, I examined all three scenarios that are in play for the No. 9 pick for the Buffalo Bills at the NFL Draft later this week.
