The first round of the NFL Draft passed without an Earl Thomas trade. Does that mean the ship has sailed? Not necessarily. ESPN's Dan Graziano reported that his understanding is the Seahawks-Cowboys trade talks involving the All-Pro free safety have centered around Dallas' second-round pick, which is No. 50 overall. In that case, the first round likely wouldn't have been a deadline for something to happen. Graziano added that he doubts the Cowboys would trade for Thomas unless/until they know they can sign him to a long-term deal. He's entering the final year of his contract with Seattle.

The Seahawks have eight more selections as it stands now, but only one tomorrow. They're still without a second-rounder and aren't scheduled to select until the middle of the third round, No. 76 overall. Seattle's other seven picks are a fourth (120), four fifths (141, 146, 156, 168), a sixth (186) and a seventh (226).

Ravens coach John Harbaugh on his quarterback situation after Baltimore used the No. 32 overall pick on Lamar Jackson: "[Jackson's] a great quarterback – start with that. But Joe Flacco is our quarterback – that's the thing we have to remember. Lamar is going to have a great chance to develop. I think you get to this stage in a quarterback's career – you've seen it done in New England, we've seen it done in a lot of places – it's time to start thinking about drafting a quarterback. When the opportunity came to get a really good one, I think you have to jump on it and take it. This really doesn't change things in a sense that we're going to go with Joe, and Joe's going to roll."

Seahawks GM John Schneider said some of the analytics the team studied favored Rashaad Penny over every other running back in terms of durability and production after first contact. Coach Pete Carroll said of Seattle's first-round pick: "He's so versatile and so dynamic, we know every time he gets his hands on the ball, he can score a touchdown."

Ravens have six picks remaining in the 2018 draft (barring more trades): Second round (none); third round (Nos. 65 and 83); fourth round (Nos. 118 and 132); fifth round (none); sixth round (No. 190) and seventh round (No. 238)

The way things worked out, you could say the Jets traded up for the No. 1 pick in the draft even though they picked at No. 3. Play along with me here. They moved up three spots last month to pick a quarterback, and it's believed their No. 1 quarterback was Sam Darnold. They got their No. 1 guy and it cost them three second-round picks, which doesn't seem all that unreasonable considering the way it played out.

Mike Tomlin said first-round pick Terrell Edmunds can play free safety, strong safety and subpackage linebacker. "He checks all the boxes," Edmunds said.

While there were questions about Da'Ron Payne's ability to rush the passer, Redskins coach Jay Gruden didn't share those worries.

Jerry Jones compared Leighton Vander Esch to Rolando McClain, who had a great 2014 season with the Cowboys. Rod Marinelli had Brian Urlacher with the Chicago Bears. “That's it,” Jones said. “That's an example of what you get when you get a three-down backer that can also get the offense the ball himself.”

What did the Rams do when the No. 23 overall pick was announced? They played a highlight reel of new WR Brandin Cooks. "It looked good," GM Les Snead said.

"We made calls. If you were to ask me what were the odds of me getting into round one, I would have said very low. That didn't mean I wasn't going to try. We certainly had dialogue from 27 to 31, 32. It has to make sense for us both now and the future. So when you're talking about (trading) multiple picks or (2019) picks, that wasn't something we were interested in doing.'' -- general manager Brett Veach on the Chiefs' efforts to trade into the first round.
