Florida QB Rex Grossman told reporters that Bears representatives were certain they would draft a quarterback in the first two or three rounds. Grossman, who will be in Chicago on Draft Day, had his testimony echoed by Cal QB Kyle Boller, who said he met with general manager Jerry Angelo and offensive coordinator John Shoop in Mobile, Ala., during the Senior Bowl.

Titans general manager Floyd Reese met with agent Drew Rosenhaus in Indianapolis during the Scouting Combine, and the two sides discussed more than just a long-term deal for OG Zach Piller. They also spent a majority of the time laying the groundwork for a new deal for DE Jevon Kearse, who has one year left on his current contract.

The Eagles appear to be leaning toward grooming RB Correll Buckhalter for the starting spot sooner rather than later. Sources say Buckhalter was healthy enough to play at the end of last season, and that he will be 100 percent by the time training camp rolls around.

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis pinpointed five areas where the Bengals need help — “definitely wide receiver, defensive line, the secondary, offensive line and quarterback,” he said.

With only Tommy Maddox a cinch to be back next season, the Steelers could look to draft a quarterback. The team interviewed Texas QB Chris Simms at the Scouting Combine.

Despite continued rumors that Cardinals RB Thomas Jones broke his hand in late November in a scuffle at a party for an adult magazine, rather than reaching for a telephone at his home, which is the way he said he was injured, we hear the Cardinals still might decide to keep Jones on the roster, provided he’s willing to be Marcell Shipp’s backup. “We still feel Thomas is a talented football player,” Cardinals VP of football operations Rod Graves told PFW. “We obviously have to work through some off-field issues we’ve had with him and get a feel for his attitude and make a decision as to whether or not he is in a position emotionally and psychologically to help us win this year.”

its funny how the top 3 qbs in this draft are valued about how the top 3 in last years draft were:

palmer - carr (projected #1)
leftwhich - harrington (top 10 - most likely the early end)
boller - ramsey (late first)
