Two players in the top 5 picks are now saying that they are not leaning toward USC Trojans defensive tackle Leonard Williams. The Tennessean writer Jim Wyatt, does not expect the Titans to select USC DT Leonard Williams at No. 2 overall.

I see USC’s Leonard Williams to #Titans in a lot of mock drafts. He’s a great player, but I don’t see that happening.
Redskins GM Scot McCloughan suggested he won’t take USC DT Leonard Williams at No. 5 overall.
“It might bring a trade more into play,” he said. “We do feel good about our defensive front.”
“A pass rusher, that’s the most important thing,” he said. “They’re hard to find. We’re very lucky to have Ryan [Kerrigan] on the team, he’s one of those players, and hopefully not just in the first but throughout this draft we’ll add more pass rushers.”
