But this much is clear -- the Bills are interested in Watkins.

The Baltimore Ravens hold the 17th overall pick in the draft, which puts them in an interesting position. The consensus elite players should be off of the board by then, so that could allow them to trade down from the middle towards the end of the first round, where they still could land a player they like.

About all that we know right now about the No. 1 overall pick in May's draft is that the Houston Texans still have it. How they will use that pick remains unclear, though.

UPDATE: As noted below, top tight end prospect Eric Ebron believes the Lions are interested in drafting him. However, later on Monday, he added a second team to the mix.

“That was one of the teams,” Ebron told Alex Marvez and Gil Brandt on Sirius XM NFL Radio. “This is me quoting me. I said if I had my choice of the teams that are high upon me right now that I believe are high on me, it was the Buffalo Bills and the Detroit Lions. Those are the two teams that I believe are the highest upon me. Now are they telling the same things they are telling me to everybody else? I don’t know. But from my perspective and my point of view, those are the two teams that I believe if they could have signed me that day would have.”

Pre-draft smokescreens are emitted in all directions at this time of year, but both the Lions and Bills could be in position to draft Ebron, if that's the direction one of them chooses to go in the first round.

The Kansas City Chiefs got steady play out of Alex Smith for most of last season, and many think he is good enough to win a Super Bowl, at least if he doesn't have to carry the team on his shoulders. Still, that doesn't mean the Chiefs won't draft a quarterback in May.

The general consensus is that if the Pittsburgh Steelers don't draft a cornerback with the 15th overall pick, they likely will take a wideout. It's certainly an area of their roster that needs to be addressed.
