With the basketball season now over, it’s time to turn our attention to the NFL Draft, which is only 23 days away. Josh Allen is still projected to be a top five pick and is making the rounds to visit the teams that might draft him. According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Allen arrives in San Francisco tonight for his meeting with the 49ers, who have the No. 2 pick.
Kentucky edge Josh Allen arrives tonight for his #49ers visit. If he gets the same treatment as Alabama DL Quinnen Williams, it’ll start with a nice steak dinner tonight — no IHOP this time. @nflnetwork pic.twitter.com/tOxZgxBh2p

According to NBC Sports’ Jennifer Lee Chan, while in the Bay Area, Allen will also see the Oakland Raiders (fourth pick), and per Pelissero’s report, he’ll visit the Detroit Lions (eighth pick) later this week.
In other draft news, I’ve been back in Nashville for approximately 24 hours and all anyone can talk about is how they’re removing — excuse me, relocating — 10 cherry trees to make way for the largest stage in NFL Draft history. Between the hype, the traffic, and the #NewNashville outrage, I’ll be shocked if the city survives.
