Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera sits down with ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio to discuss Cam Newton’s ankle surgery and subsequent rehab.

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle has released his latest mock draft and he has the Texans taking South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney with the first overall pick on May 8.

They’ll also talk about what Houston will do about quarterback if they do go ahead and select Clowney to kick things off at Radio City Music Hall and much more about the Texans’ plans for their first draft with coach Bill O’Brien leading the team.
