The troubled receiver attempted to force his way out of Pittsburgh during the 2017 season after his role diminished following a return from a yearlong suspension for multiple violations of the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.

Colts (from Jets) 鈥?Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa: He’s a different type of corner than departed Vontae Davis, but still addresses a major problem area for an evolving defense. Jackson and S Malik Hooker, Blaine Gabbert Jersey last year’s first rounder, would give Indianapolis a pair of accomplished ball hawks.

Buccaneers 鈥?Derrius Guice, RB, LSU: He’s a thumper who will force even NFL defensive backs to make business decisions when he breaks into opposing secondaries. Like ex-teammate Leonard Fournette,聽Guice should display more effectiveness as a receiver than he could in college.

Bears 鈥?Harrison Phillips, DL, Stanford: His 42 reps on the bench made him the 2018 combine champ for all positions. At 6-4, 307 pounds, he should be fine to play five-technique on a three-man Chicago front that needs to give Akiem Hicks more help. Harrison’s wrestling background 鈥?he was a three-time Nebraska state champion in high school 鈥?and non-stop effort (103 tackles last year!) will serve him well.聽

The Jets have a crowded quarterback room that now includes incumbent starter Josh McCown, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg in addition to Bridgewater and Darnold. There’s no way they will keep all five.

Among the group, Petty and Hackenberg could very well be cut, while McCown would be most likely to stay (Darnold being on the roster is a no-brainer).

Jaguars 鈥斅燭aven Bryan, DT, Florida:聽This sure seems like a case of the Jags sticking to their board, because they certainly don’t need defensive line help. Bryan isn’t highly experienced, but his motor’s always revving, and he can play inside or out like new teammates Malik Jackson and Calais Campbell.聽But good teams don’t steer away from talent, and Tom Coughlin’s Giants won two Super Bowls with a deep fleet of pass rushers.

Vikings 鈥斅燤ike Hughes, CB, Central Florida:聽GM Rick Spielman must have let Mike Zimmer make this pick given the coach’s endless desire to collect talented corners. Hughes may replace unsigned聽Terence Newman聽as the Vikes’ new nickelback between Xavier Rhodes and Trae Waynes, both first rounders themselves. However, Hughes’ real impact as a rookie may be as a returner after he averaged nearly 32 yards a聽kickoff in college and almost 17 per punt return.
