NFL Draft Rumors: Dominique Easley drawing interest from 49ers, Bears, Patriots & Seahawks

 

Florida Gators’ defensive tackle Dominique Easley was thought to be one of the draft’s premiere defensive lineman early in the season.

After tearing his ACL for the second time in his college career, Easley has seen his stock slip.

On Thursday,  several teams came to watch Easley work out. ESPN’s Jeff Barlis reported that Easley’s knee is “about 80%.”

According to Tony Pauline of Draft Insider, four teams in particular, the Chicago Bears, New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers, are showing a lot of interest in Easley.

The 6’2, 290-pound Easley projects to go in the second round of May’s draft.
