If the Baltimore Ravens did indeed request the polygraph test taken by controversial NFL draft pick Gareon Conley, some teams don’t see it as something that violated NFL protocols or federal employment laws, according to two teams that spoke to Yahoo Sports on Friday.

The Patriots selected Arkansas defensive end Deatrich Wise with the 131st pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Wise is a rangy, versatile player that Bill Belichick would love to move around the defensive line. Wise was also a teammate of current Patriots defensive end Trey Flowers, a Super Bowl LI hero. Here our some reactions from analysts and fans: The reactions have been positive thus far, as the Patriots add depth along the defensive line. After adding Derek Rivers in the third round, it’s clear the Patriots are looking to add talent and depth along the defensive line.
The Redskins first four picks of the 2017 Draft were met with nearly universal acclaim. That changed with the franchise's second fourth-round selection on Saturday when the team selected Michigan State safety Montae Nicholson.

Nicholson's lack of playmaking production combined with his unsure tackling make him a traits-only prospect who could have a hard time sticking in the league unless he finds more confidence and aggression.
