California QB Davis Webb told Bay Area News Group's Cam Inman that "double-digit" teams have told him he's a "first-round talent".
Fantasy Tip: Webb stood out at the Senior Bowl, which likely cemented his status as a player who should come off the board in the first two rounds. It seems unlikely he'll get his name called on Day 1, however, as he is generally considered the fifth-best quarterback in a draft in which only two players at his position appear to be first-round locks.

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) reportedly wanted more than $8 million in the first year of any contract he signed during the initial wave of free agency.
Fantasy Tip: If true, this report explains the main reason AP is still unemployed. Eddie Lacy landed a one-year deal worth $5.5 million and Latavius Murray's three-year contract averages out to $5 million per year, and both are considerably younger and more useful in the passing game than Peterson. With a draft class heavy in talent at his position, the 32-year-old will likely need to cut his asking price in half to get a bite in free agency.
