A reminder to Gambling911.com readers that 2009 NFL Draft betting props were still available courtesy of Sportsbook.com.  The currently available NFL Draft picks as of press time early Saturday afternoon included OVER/UNDERS on total Big 12 players selected, total Big 10 players selected, total ACC players selected and on on.  Odds on specific players being drafted in the first round were also being offered.

Rounds 1 and 2 were beginning at 4 pm EST.

Bill Williamson had some early takes on 2009 NFL Draft rumors in his blog over at ESPN.com:


The Eagles called about tight end Tony Scheffler, but a trade is not likely.

My take: Scheffler should be kept. The trade talk came up earlier this offseason because new coach Josh McDaniels' system revolves around three receivers and one tight end. Denver's starting tight end is Daniel Graham, who is a blocking specialist. Scheffler is a field-stretching tight end. Denver has to find a way to work him into the offense. He is a weapon. Keeping him will make this offense more potent.

Kansas City

Larry Johnson's future could be determined this weekend.

My take: It wouldn't be the worst idea for Kansas City to take a running back even if Johnson is in the team's plans. He is 29 and won't be playing forever. The team also has Jamaal Charles and Kolby Smith. Another back could be added to the mix regardless of Johnson's future with the team.


ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting the Raiders are shopping defensive end Derrick Burgess.

My take: Burgess still has some value but I don't think Oakland will get anything more than a mid-round pick for him. Burgess is getting older and was injured often last season. The Raiders, who only have five draft picks, like second-year pass-rusher Trevor Scott.

San Diego

The San Diego Union-Tribune believes the Chargers will draft Tyson Jackson.

My take: San Diego may have to move up from No. 16 to get that done. Kansas City could take Jackson at No. 3. Green Bay (No. 9) and Denver (No. 12) also like the LSU defensive end. He may fit what San Diego does but he may not be available.
