Four head coaches appear to have ditched the NFL's league meetings.

During the coaches customary group photo, taken at the event each year, several HC's were missing. Including the Patriots' Bill Belichick, Tampa's Bruce Arians, the Lions' Dan Campbell and Dallas' Mike McCarthy.

The four were absent from the Florida meetings for reasons unknown. But, it could be related to pre-draft scouting for each of the men, with the NFL Draft just a month out. That said, every team could say that. And typically, all of the league's GM's and coaches make the trek down to the Sunshine State to attend the meetings.

There's plenty of speculation as to why some wouldn't show up. Such as Mike McCarthy, who may want to avoid questions about Sean Payton possibly replacing him in Big D.

But, that's just speculation.

It's been a whirlwind of an NFL offseason thus far; and we haven't even reached its crowning jewel: the draft. Dan Campbell's Detroit Lions hold the second overall pick. With many slating the team to take Michigan pass rusher Aiden Hutchinson.
