Louisiana State RB Leonard Fournette could be the target of the Jacksonville Jaguars with the No. 4 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, according to beat writer Mike DiRocco.
Huddle Up: The idea of Jacksonville going with a running back early in the draft seems to be gaining steam, and if Fournette is the pick, he would immediately become the workhorse for the Jaguars and a solid RB2 in all formats.

LSU RB Leonard Fournette is visiting with the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, March 17.
Huddle Up: Fournette and Florida State's Dalvin Cook are both meeting with the Eagles today, and it makes sense as they are widely regarded as the top two backs the draft and Philadelphia needs help at the position. The Eagles own the No. 14 pick in the draft, meaning they would probably have to move up for Fournette but could be in the right spot to land Cook.

Florida State RB Dalvin Cook is visiting the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, March 16, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Cook projects as one of the more complete backs in the draft, and he would be worth a look as a RB2 if he lands with the Eagles.

Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey could be in the mix to be the Denver Broncos' first-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft in large part due to the bond general manager John Elway has with former Broncos teammate Ed McCaffrey - Christian's father, according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.
Huddle Up: It'd be a nice story, although one that seems far-fetched given the Broncos' desire to improve the offensive line. While McCaffrey will be listed as a running back in the NFL, offensive coordinators who want to maximize his talent will be utilizing him all over the field, including as a slot receiver and returner. Denver would not be an ideal landing spot since the Broncos probably want to be more of a run-oriented offense and give C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker the bulk of the workload in the backfield.

Louisiana State RB Leonard Fournette could be the target of the Jacksonville Jaguars with the No. 4 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft after Jacksonville committed significant money to the defensive side of the ball in free agency, according to Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.
Huddle Up: Fournette would instantly become the workhorse in Jacksonville's backfield, and he would be no worse than a high-end RB2.

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent OG Ronald Leary will sign a four-year, $35 million contract with the Denver Broncos once the league calendar officially changes Thursday, March 9, at 4 p.m. ET. He will earn $20 million in guaranteed money, according to a source.
Huddle Up: This goes a long way for shoring up a porous offensive line, and it may be just want John Elway needs to convince Tony Romo to sign in Denver.
