There’s a decent chance former Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch will be shown on your TV Thursday night. He’s not attending the NFL Draft in Chicago, but he’ll be talked about and definitely shown if someone takes him in the first round, which is expected.  If you’ve never seen him before, he might look pretty familiar, especially if you grew up in the 1990s boy bands...
