Tennessee pass rusher Derek Barnett, regarded by many as one of the top players in the draft at his position, has been spending plenty of times showing teams what he can do.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Barnett has worked out private with the Patriots, Saints, Bengals, and Titans. He also has visited the Browns.

Barnett worked out at the Scouting Combine despite suffering from a virus. He exited Tennessee as the school’s all-time sack leader with 32, breaking the record heldย byย Reggie White.

    So, in summary, multiple teams are interested in a first-round talent. Absolutely remarkable.

    Apparently NFL teams are looking to draft really good college football players. Food for thought.

    Read between the lines. Patriots don’t have a pick until #8 of the 3rd round. Thats the story!

    Considering the Pats do not have a first or second round pick it is interesting that they are working out a top 15 player. New Orleans or Cleveland?

    It’s not as obvious as you make it. Consider the Browns.

    Glad an inside source could confirm that a projected top 15 pick has met with the teams drafting in uhh… the top 15.

    It will be very interesting to see what the Browns do with in draft this year with possibly many decisions based on computer modeling and data analytics. We know a homeless man whispering in the owner’s ear does not work.

    Loved the story yesterday that BB may work out players he can’t get and/or doesn’t necessarily want (eg AP) purely for scouting and future game-planning.

    #1 picks, prepare to be neutralized, hoodie-style.
