Here are the most interesting stories Thursday in the AFC East:
Will the Miami Dolphins draft Oklahoma left tackle Lane Johnson?
Morning take: Johnson would be a good pick for Miami at No. 12. If Johnson makes it that far, I think Miami makes this move. It would fill a major need -- protecting quarterback Ryan Tannehill's blindside.
Will the Pittsburgh Steelers match the New England Patriots' $2.5 million offer for restricted free agent Emmanuel Sanders?
Morning take: This one could go either way. The Patriots need depth at receiver, but Pittsburgh doesn’t want to lose two of its top three receivers in free agency after seeing Mike Wallace sign with Miami. I expect the Steelers to take the full five days to think this through.
Would the Buffalo Bills consider drafting USC quarterback Matt Barkley?
Morning take: Not in the first round. The Bills have done a lot of homework on Barkley, but he won’t be a consideration at No. 8.
Here is a partial list of pre-draft visitors to the New York Jets.
Morning take: It’s interesting to note how many safeties are on New York's slate. I expect the Jets to address this position fairly high in the NFL draft.
