The start of the 2017 NFL Draft is less than a week away and that has the full attention of all 32 teams. It's silly season, which means there are plenty of draft rumors to sort through. Here are all the latest 2017 NFL Draft rumors and news you need to know from around the league.

That makes the Bears a likely landing spot, since the 49ers, Jags and Titans don't really have needs at strong safety. Adams is considered on the best safety prospects to come out in recent memory, and would be a great fit in Chicago. The latest Chat Sports mock draft has the Bears taking Adams.

The speed and talent is not a question for John Ross. However, the medical side of things might be.

Ross has had four injuries at Washington: a torn meniscus in both knees, a torn ACL, a microfracture surgery and a shoulder. The buzz around Ross' injuries was enough that Ross' agent released a statement saying his client's medical rechecks were cleared. Ross has the speed, but injuries scare NFL teams. We'll find out Thursday if it's enough to drop the speedster out of the first round.
