Potential landing spots for Amari Cooper

No one played wide receiver in college football last year quite like Amari Cooper did at Alabama. Every week it seemed like the talented playmaker was putting up some gaudy statistics and against some pretty good defenses and secondaries in the SEC. All of that production earned him a chance to go to New York as a Heisman Trophy finalist. Though he finished third, wide receivers...

Alabama WR Amari Cooper Visited the Redskins

Up until now, there hasn't been much draft talk centered around the Redskins using their No. 5 overall selection on a wide receiver. The Redskins already have Pierre Garcon, Desean Jackson and Andre Roberts on the roster.

POLL: Tevin Coleman or T.J. Yeldon

The Cowboys need for running back high on the list, and could be as high as #27 in the 1st round of this year’s draft, but could also be addressed in the 2nd-3rd round at the very latest. The running back class is deep, but the talent is solid, so there will be “runs” on these guys. For me, I’ve narrowed the Cowboys likely choices between two backs: Tevin Coleman, Indiana...
