San Diego Chargers: The club owns the first pick in the draft this year and it's highly unlikley they'd use it to select a safety, but University of Miami star S Sean Taylor was in town Monday to visit with coaches and management. "It's all part of the process," GM A.J. Smith told the San Diego Union-Tribune. "Everybody's trying to figure out what we're going to do. We're looking at great players. We'll find out what we're going to do when the time comes." Smith cautioned not to read too much into Taylor's visit, but it could mean that the team is considering trading down. There have been rumors that the New York Giants are willing to move up to the top spot to snag QB Eli Manning. If the Chargers swapped places with the Giants in the first round, Taylor would still be on the board when the Chargers were on the clock.

Green Bay Packers: Now that DEs Joe Johnson and Jamal Reynolds are on their way out, the team could use some depth on the line and they may be looking to the restricted free agent market to fill their holes. The Packers brought in St. Louis Rams restricted free agent Bryce Fisher for a visit Friday, according to the Milkwaukee Journal Sentinel. The Rams have the right to match any offer made to Fisher or receive a draft pick in the seventh round, the same round in which Fisher was selected by the Buffalo Bills in 2001. It's difficult to imagine that the Rams wouldn't match any reasonable offer considering he is a leading candidate to replace departed DE Grant Wistrom. Fisher, who played in 16 games last season, totaled 47 tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles and one pass defensed.

New England Patriots: The club hosted Virginia Tech CB DeAngelo Hall late last week. Hall is considered the top corner in the draft, and the Pats would have to trade up into the top half of the first round to land him, but they do have the ammunition to complete such a deal. The Pats are the only team that has multiple piacks in the first round of April's draft. If a trade is made for Hall it could signal that the team might be looking to trade disgruntled CB Ty Law.
