Meanwhile, NFL Network reports running back Marshawn Lynch is open to a return to the Raiders, if they're interested. ESPN reported last week that the 33-year-old Lynch planned to retire for the second time in his career, after sitting out 2016 and returning for the last two seasons with Oakland, his hometown team. It appears Oakland has already responded to Crowell's injury by going with someone else, as NFL Network reports the Raiders will re-sign free agent running Doug Martin, their leading rusher in 2018.

The 2019 NFL Draft is in the books and the teams that that befuddled and confused over the offseason like the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders continued that tradition through draft night. Liz Loza and Matt Harmon report in from Buffalo's Nashville with a special two-part draft recap combining their fantasy expertise with Yahoo Sports' Terez Paylor and Charles Robinson, hosts of the Yahoo Sports NFL Podcast. In Part I, they tackle what went down in the NFC over draft weekend, starting with their first reactions from Nashville.

The Panthers selected another edge rusher in Alabama's Christian Miller in the fourth round of the NFL draft before adding running back Jordan Scarlett from Florida in the fifth round. The Panthers traded down in the sixth-round and drafted South Carolina offensive tackle Dennis Daley Miller is the son Corey Miller, who played nine seasons as a linebacker in the NFL, mostly with the New York Giants. The 6-foot-3, 247-pound Miller only started four games last season for the Crimson Tide but managed 36 tackles, including 8 + sacks.

In a story April 25 about the latest from the NFL draft, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Christian Wilkins was suspended from Clemson's bowl game after testing positive for a banned substance. Dexter Lawrence was one of three Clemson Tigers suspended from the bowl game who also missed the national championship game, and neither Wilkins nor Clelin Ferrell was involved. A corrected segment from The Latest is below: NASHVILLE, Tenn.

Oakland - With the first of three picks in the opening round as the rebuild begins in earnest, the Raiders fill the chasm created by their trading of Khalil Mack last summer. JOSH ALLEN, LB, KENTUCKY 5. Tampa Bay - Lots of holes here for Bruce Arians to get filled, and he's an offensive-first guy.

Many think because of his ties with new Arizona Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury, combined with current quarterback Josh Rosen's rookie season woes, former Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray will be selected by Arizona with the top pick. However, Murray's size, the fact that Rosen only has one year under his belt - which was with fired coach Steve Wilks - and the team's need for a stronger defensive line makes it plausible that they do not go for a quarterback. Do not be surprised if defensive end Nick Bosa or even tackle Quinnen Williams end up being selected with the top pick.

John Dorsey's patience is about to be tested like never before. After having the No. 1 overall pick in each of the past two NFL drafts, the Browns' industrious general manager will begin this year's as a spectator. Dorsey, who has spent the past 16 months overhauling Cleveland's roster and reawakening ''the sleeping giant'' as he likes to call the Browns, doesn't currently have a first-round pick after trading it to the New York Giants in the stunning mega-deal for superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

The 2019 NFL draft is fast approaching. With names like Kyler Murray, Nick Bosa and Josh Allen available, it seems likely we already know how the first few selections of the first round will go on April 25. But what about the rest of the picks?

Our third mock draft has some changes — in fact, some big ones. The idea of Duke quarterback Daniel Jones going prior to Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins would have felt preposterous not long ago. But we have to keep in mind that pairing up quarterbacks and teams is not strictly a talent-first operation.

This is one “report,” and that word might even be a wee bit strong. Haskins threw for 50 touchdowns last season and for most of the run-up to the draft, he has been widely considered the No. 2 quarterback in the class behind Kyler Murray. Now mind you, this is in King's pseudo-mock draft, and it's not really a mock, but more of a “what teams should do” column.
