The Jaguars are expected to get things rolling by selecting Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence. The New York Jets are expected to follow at No. 2 by picking BYU quarterback Zach Wilson. After that, it’s anyone’s guess.

Here’s the latest buzz from the NFL:

Tim Tebow to reunite with Urban Meyer on Jaguars?

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports “Tim Tebow recently worked out for the #Jaguars, source said, and there has been at least some discussion of him signing. Oh, and he’s a tight end now. For years, Tim Tebow resisted a shift to tight end. Now at 33 years old, Tebow could return to his hometown team.”

Multiple teams asked about Aaron Rodgers

FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer reports “A few teams have called the Packers about trading for Aaron Rodgers.”

49ers called Packers about Aaron Rodgers

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reports “The #49ers reached out to the #Packers on Wednesday about trading for Aaron Rodgers, but no formal offer was made and a source said there is a ‘zero percent chance’ that Green Bay deals the reigning NFL MVP.”

Falcons getting calls for No. 4 pick

ESPN’s Dianna Russini reports “The Atlanta Falcons have taken calls from just about everyone. I was told there hasn’t been an offer good enough to trade back. They are willing to keep listening. As of now, TE Kyle Pitts would be a selection the Falcons would be THRILLED to have if he’s available.”

Saints looking to trade up

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports “In a relatively quiet trade market thus far, the #Saints appear to be the team doing the most groundwork for a potential trade up. They’ve even called into the Top 10 to gauge value. For a CB? Would be a steep price, but they aren’t afraid to be bold …”

49ers not expected to trade Jimmy Garoppolo

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports “The #49ers do not have plans to trade Jimmy G, unless the value overwhelms them. Seems pretty unlikely, but crazier things have happened.”

Ravens interested in Julio Jones

FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer reports (via Pro Football Talk) “The Falcons are making Julio Jones available in a trade and … the Ravens asked about Jones. However, because of Jones’ contract, a trade appears unlikely.”

Patriots targeting Jimmy Garoppolo?

NESN’s Dale Arnold reports “What I’ve been told, by a reliable source —- @Patriots are working on a new contract for Jimmy G that could lead to a deal with @49ers. Same source who correctly told me Tom Brady had signed with @Buccaneers. Doesn’t mean it will get done, but they’re working on it.”

However The Athletic’s Jeff Howe reports that “Nothing happening between the Patriots and Jimmy Garoppolo at this time, according to two sources.”

Patriots trading for Falcons’ No. 4 pick to select Justin Fields?

The Athletic’s Jeff Howe reports “the Patriots are still candidates to move up into the top 10 picks of the draft. … Specifically with the Patriots, these trade discussions are a strong indication they’ve found conviction in at least one of those top quarterbacks, and word is they think highly of Ohio State’s Justin Fields – highly enough that they’ve even spoken with the Atlanta Falcons about the fourth pick.”
