According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, the Patriots have approached Vince Wilfork about restructuring his contract.
The Patriots are searching for money to re-sign free agents Aqib Talib and Julian Edelman, and Wilfork's $11.6 million cap hit is a huge number for a 32-year-old coming off an Achilles' injury. An extension could lower that number and keep Wilfork in New England for the rest of his career.
According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, a "handful" of NFL evaluators have "greater confidence" in Buffalo OLB/DE Khalil Mack panning out than South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney.

Per Mort, the evaluators who side with Mack cite his "consistency and versatility." This isn't to say Mack will be drafted ahead of Clowney -- he almost certainly won't be -- but is a reminder that there are two truly elite edge-rusher prospects in this draft. Mack seems a virtual lock for the top-seven picks.
