Reed rising, Gilyard dropping

With the draft only weeks away, NFL scouts are adjusting their draft boards and moving players up and down accordingly. Here is a look at five players who are making moves on a lot of draft boards.
Receivers on the moveTaylor Price, Ohio: Don't be surprised to see him come off the board as early as mid-second round because of his ability to succeed at the NFL level. Price had a strong Senior Bowl and posted a 40 time of 4.41 at the combine, which shows he can stretch the field at the next level. He also runs great routes, catches the ball outside of his frame well and does a good job of dropping his weight at the top of stem. The 6-0, 204-pounder also easily tracks the ball over his shoulder. The one knock on him is that his lateral cuts are a little tight, but he should be an adequate No. 3 receiver in the NFL to start his career and eventually become a very good No. 2.
