Virgil Green heading to Denver

The Broncos selected TEs Julius Thomas and Virgil Green in rounds 5 and 7 respectively. These are a couple guys to get excited about. Both are freakish athletes with basketball backgrounds. And both will have a chance to showcase their talent in the NF…

Delone Carter selected by Indy

The Colts selected Syracuse RB Delone Carter in the 4th-round. Carter isn’t a burner, but he’s a capable all-around back that was considered by some to be a 2nd-round prospect. With Joseph Addai possibly on the outs, and Donald Brown havi…

Taiwan Jones heading to Oakland

The Raiders selected Eastern Washington RB Taiwan Jones in the 4th-round. Washington could make his way into Oakland’s backfield picture as Darren McFadden’s backup. While both he and McFadden are injury prone, they could form a potent 1-…

Cecil Shorts joins the Jags

The Jags selected Mount Union WR Cecil Shorts in the 4th-round. Mount Union, a Division III school, is known for pumping out Colts WR Pierre Garcon. Shorts is built like Garcon at 6’0 210, and was highly productive in college. With Mike Sims-Wal…

Kendall Hunter selected by San Francisco

The 49ers selected Oklahoma State RB Kendall Hunter in the 4th-round. Hunter isn’t a big guy at 5’8 195, and he struggles with ball security. But he’s coming off a monster season that saw him tally over 1,600 total yards and 16 TDs….

The Redskins selected Nebraska RB Roy Helu in the 4th-round of the draft. A big guy with deceptive speed, Helu is coming off back-to-back seasons of over 1,100 yards rushing. Considering injury prone Ryan Torain is the only capable back on the Skins r…

Jordan Cameron joins the Browns

The Browns selected USC TE Jordan Cameron in the 4th-round of the draft. Compared favorably to Saints TE Jimmy Graham, Cameron is a former basketball player with freakish athleticism. He’ll compete for playing time right away in Cleveland.

Randall Cobb selected by Green Bay

The Packers selected Kentucky WR Randall Cobb with the final pick of the 2nd-round. And the rich get richer. Green Bay sported one of the best groups of WRs in the league this past year. But Donald Driver is aging, and James Jones could be lost to f…

David Akers Eagles career likely over

The Eagles used their 4th-round pick on Nebraska K Alex Henery, which likely signals the end of K David Akers’ time in Philly.  It’s the earliest a kicker has been selected since 2006, so the Eagles clearly plan to start Henery.  Akers was sl…

Mark Ingram the early favorite for starting spot

Saints beat writer Brian Allee-Walsh says the team’s starting RB job is Mark Ingram’s to lose.  Tough to argue with that.  New Orleans paid a hefty price to trade up to snag Ingram.  And he’s more talented than Pierre Thomas an…
