Devin Funchess

CAR -WR

Funchess will play WR for Panthers

Panthers 2nd-round pick Devin Funchess was considered a WR/TE 'tweener by some scouts. Carolina will use him at WR.  "He makes catches in traffic. He presents a big target in traffic and takes a lot of big shots, similar to what Kelvin [Benjamin] does,” HC Ron Rivera said. “And then you watch him go vertical, which was surprising. I was like, ‘Wait a minute, I thought people talked about he was not a vertical threat.’ He was a vertical threat.”  Funchess posted an ugly 4.70-second 40 time at the Combine but improved to the mid-4.4s at his Pro Day.  He flashed downfield ability at Michigan, with 9 catches of 30+ yards over the past 2 seasons. The issues with Funchess are with his ability to create separation and inconsistent hands.  But he's extremely young, turning just 21 later this month, so there should be plenty of room for improvement.  Funchess has a good chance to win a Week 1 starting job in Carolina and be a 2015 fantasy factor.

Zach Zenner

Zenner signs with Lions

Undrafted free agent RB Zach Zenner latched on with the Lions.  Zenner hails from South Dakota St. but gained a cult following in the pre-draft process thanks to an impressive combination of production and measurables.  He posted 3 straight 2,000-yard rushing seasons with 58 TDs over that span.  He also caught 77 balls during that 3-year stretch.  Then Zenner checked into the Combine at 6'0, 223 pounds and ran a 4.60-second 40-yard dash with a 41-inch vertical and 121-inch broad.  That gave him the 2nd highest SPARQ score in this year's RB class -- behind new teammate Ameer Abdullah.  Detroit's backfield is currently a bit crowded with the 2 rookies, Joique Bell and Theo Riddick.  But Bell turns 29 in August and Riddick only looks like a pass-catcher.  Zenner is capable of emerging as a "big back" complement to Abdullah down the road.

Tre McBride

TEN -WR

Titans land McBride

The Titans selected WR Tre McBride in the 7th round of the 2015 NFL Draft.  McBride faced inferior competition at William & Mary and never reached 900 yards in a season.  But he's a 6'0, 210-pounder with 4.4 speed and good short-area quickness.  McBride also flashes impressive ball skills.  He's drawn comparisons to Pierre Garcon and Brandon LaFell.  McBride was our 14th-ranked WR in the class and is a great value for Tennessee in the 7th.

Josh Robinson

Robinson heads to Indy

The Colts selected RB Josh Robinson in the 6th round of the draft.  Robinson doesn't look like much on a sheet of paper: 5'8, 217 pounds with 4.6 speed.  But flip on the tape and this guy is an absolute bowling ball, built low to the ground and extremely tough to tackle.  Robinson ripped off 1,203 rushing yards on a 6.3 per-carry average for Mississippi St. in the SEC last year.  He's unlikely to make a 2015 fantasy football impact, but Robinson could be in the running to eventually replace the soon-to-be 32-year-old Frank Gore.

Darren Waller

BAL -WR

Ravens add Waller

The Ravens selected WR Darren Waller in the 6th round of the 2015 NFL Draft.  Waller caught just 43 balls in Georgia Tech's triple-option offense over the past 2 seasons.  But he averaged 18.8 yards per catch with 9 TDs.  He's a monstrous 6'6, 238-pounder with 4.4 speed and a 37-inch vertical.  Waller is a raw receiver, but that size and athleticism gives him intriguing upside.  Baltimore has now added Waller, WR Breshad Perriman, TE Max Williams, RB Buck Allen and TE Nick Boyle over the past 3 days.

Zac Stacy

NYJ -RB

Jets acquire Stacy

The Jets acquired RB Zac Stacy from the Rams in exchange for a 7th-round pick.  Stacy was 4th on St. Louis' depth chart after Thursday night's selection of Todd Gurley.  In New York, he joins another crowded backfield that includes Chris Ivory, Stevan Ridley and Bilal Powell.  Stacy, Ivory and Ridley are all between-the-tackles power backs, so the Jets might not end up carrying all 3.  Stacy might be the best pass-catcher of the trio, compiling 44 catches across 2013 and 2014.  But can Stacy take that role from Powell, who has 64 grabs over the past 3 seasons.  Hopefully this backfield gains clarity in August.

Cameron Artis-Payne

CAR -RB

Artis-Payne goes to Panthers

The Panthers selected RB Cameron Artis-Payne in the 5th round of the 2015 NFL Draft.  The Auburn product exploded for 1,608 yards and 13 scores on a 5.3 per-carry average this past season.  He's well-built at 5'10 and 212 pounds and ran a decent 4.53-second 40-yard dash at the Combine.  Artis-Payne isn't a homerun threat but gets upfield with nice burst.  He could immediately step in as a change-of-pace option behind Jonathan Stewart in Carolina.  His only competitors for that role are Fozzy Whittaker and Jordan Todman.  Artis-Payne more than likely lacks the upside to emerge as a lead back, though.

Kenny Bell

TB -WR

Bell heads to Tampa Bay

The Bucs selected WR Kenny Bell in the 5th round of the 2015 NFL Draft.  A favorite of film junkie Matt Waldman, Bell has some Kenny Stills to his game as an explosive field stretcher.  He's 6'1, 197 pounds with 4.4 speed and a 41.5 vertical.  Tampa is a nice landing spot for Bell.  He has a chance to win the #3 WR job in 2015 and could eventually replace Vincent Jackson as the #2.

Jesse James

PIT -TE

Steelers add James

The Steelers added TE Jesse James in the 5th round of the 2015 NFL Draft.  Pittsburgh is looking for Heath Miller's heir apparent and reportedly tried to trade up in the 2nd round for Maxx Williams.  They settle for James instead.  He's not as fluid as Williams, but James is a monster 6'7, 261-pounder with a 37.5-inch vertical.  That should at least make him a dangerous red-zone weapon.  We'll see if he can develop into more than that.

Karlos Williams

BUF -RB

17 hours ago

Williams joins Bills backfield

The Bills added RB Karlos Williams in the 5th round.  This kid goes 6'1, 230 pounds with 4.4 speed.  He's a former safety and is still raw as a RB.  But he's a developmental prospect for the Bills, who have LeSean McCoy locked in as the feature back.  Williams' arrival might spell the end of Bryce Brown's time in Buffalo.
