We aren't supposed to take too much stock in what happens at the NFL Combine, which Peter King once named the "underwear olympics." But there are winners and losers each year nonetheless, and nowhere is that more apparent than in this year's mixed-up class of wide receivers.  Unlike last year, where AJ Green and Julio Jones gave us a consensus top two at the top of the talent chart, dwarfing the rest of the field, this year's group of receivers is remarkably ripe for debate. Assemble any five scouts and you'll get at least three different answers for who the first WR picked should be, with Justin Blackmon, Michael Floyd and Alshon Jeffery all collecting votes and plenty of room for underdog picks. Thousands of hours of tape study among collected scouts haven't broken the logjam, so a few days with measuring tapes and stopwatches threatens to radically reshape our draft expectations.

Dolphins likely won’t go after Peyton Manning

According to Peter King of SI.com, one NFL general manager told him that the problem with Peyton Manning possibly going to the Miami Dolphins is that new head coach Joe Philbin wants to control his team and his offense, instead of allowing Manning to dictate things. This leads me to believe that the Dolphins will likely not pursue Manning when he gets released by the Colts.  I believe...
