You think Gruden shit a brick when Newton told him they had his play calling reduced to a double digit number. This kid should switch to wide receiver now and avoid the 3-4 years of ego deflation.

You think Gruden didn't know that before he asked the question?

Is it true that some of his option read plays were not even option reads, but pre determined keeps or handoffs?

I knew tOSU did that from time to time with Pryor, but less and less as his career has progressed. The report I read made it seem rare that he ever got to choose.

This guy has disaster written all over him. Anyone else read the report that Kapernick is number one on some teams boards?

I can't remember a NFL draft that flew under the radar quite like this draft. I know the uncertainty is off putting for some but this is usually a national holiday.
Having said that.... I know It's old news but still intriguing for those of us who have been watching Laurence Maroney as the feature back the last few years. I don't even car about the knee concerns, if the guy is available I'd love to see him in a Pats uni.

RB Ingram visiting Pats

Former Alabama running back Mark Ingram tweeted the following within the last half-hour: "Headed to the airport, off to Boston...Another week living in the airport."
The 2009 Heisman winner is headed to New England for an official visit, likely for the Patriots to re-check the knee he injured last season.
During a draft conference call last week, NFL Network analyst Mike Lombardi mentioned that Ingram's knee is a concern to teams.
Because of Alabama coach Nick Saban's friendship with Bill Belichick and the Pats' need for a running back, many have been tying Ingram to New England. Today, Sports Illustrated's Peter King wrote that the Patriots "love" Ingram

Three for the Show on ESPN is must see TV for anyone into the draft. 3 part series follows Newton, Locker, Tyrod. Cam is so full of himself it's gross. Talking in the 3rd person, asking how many other draftees have their own billboard, generally talking about how great he is. Cam and Cecil are constantly watching ESPN to see what they say about him. Sitting in the room as Tyrod and his parents eat it up as an agent blows sunshine up their asses is great. I'd take shot with Locker, he seems like a guy that just loves to compete.

Mallet getting alot of HATE from the rumor mill in the whole process.

Can the Fins please draft Pouncey. Just plug him in as the starting guard for the next 10 years with a chance for 2-3 Pro Bowls.

part lockout part i think this is a really weak class. One of the draft guys made this point about Pat Pete. How many corners play at 220-230?

Im intrigued by this Jimmy Smith guy from Colorado.

every defensive player in the NFL can't wait to light this kid up
The Orangemen are just a rock-solid, consistent winner that hasn't suffered a losing season since 1968-69.

I thought the draft was today.

That's how out of touch I am with it.

Watch this video at the beginning of this story. I don't ever want to hear Texas fans(or Bama haters) whine about McCoy's injury ever again. It wasn't like he missed the game, he just got knocked the eff out on the field of play by this guy. That's part of the game.

Knocked out? He had a pinched nerve...which he said he felt no pain. It's fair for someone to say they've never seen an injury like that before. Which happened in the biggest game of the year.

Of course if Texas had won then the Gamecocks wouldn't have broken a double digit streak so I'm all Bama in this argument.

Colt was in the game

Dareus(now pronounced Dah-reus) nailed Colt

Colt was out of the game

Therefore, Colt was knocked the eff out of the game by Dareus(now pronounced Dah-reus).
