NFL Draft will go on as planned; Mims slated for first round

By  | 

ESPN reports The NFL Draft will go on as scheduled from April 23-25.

ESPN'S Adam Schefter obtained a memo sent out by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to teams that stated the draft would go forward as scheduled.

Goodell also warned in the memo that anyone associated with the NFL, caught criticizing the memo, would be taken to task.

ESPN reports he wrote, "public discussion of issues relating to the Draft serves no useful purpose and is grounds for disciplinary action."

Several analysts have Baylor receiver Denzel Mims getting taken in the first round.

Mims has reportedly risen up draft boards, thanks to a stellar week at the Senior Bowl and a strong NFL Combine showing.
