As we get closer to the start of the 2012 NFL draft on Thursday, Tony Pauline of DraftInsider.net has indicated the San Francisco 49ers are showing a lot of interest in Stanford tight end Coby Fleener.
If the 49ers are really serious about drafting Fleener they’ll likely have to take him in the first round, since he’s expected to drop into the second round.
Another team that’s interested in Fleener, is the Indianapolis Colts who would love to take him in the second round. But unfortunately for them, he likely won’t be available when they’re on the clock. The Colts also have more pressing needs then the tight end position, as they transition on defense from a 4-3 to a 3-4.

Finally we get to talk about Marvin once again this week when he introduces the Colts second and...

Just two years ago the Indianapolis Colts were 14-0, making a run at a perfect season and on their way to Super Bowl XLIV.
Now, days away from the 2012 NFL draft, they are rebuilding, or as new coach Chuck Pagano says, “building the monster.”
The question many Colts fans are still pondering: Was such a massive rebuilding process really necessary? The answer—Yes.
Given the fact that Indianapolis is transitioning to a 3-4 defense and that veteran All-Pro defensive end Dwight Freeney may not necessarily fit the new scheme in Indy, Sports Illustrated reporter Peter King speculates that Freeney may want to be traded on draft day.
Whatever the case may be, Freeney has served the Colts very, very well over his illustrious, Hall of Fame caliber...
There will probably never be a 'closing of the book' on Peyton Manning in Indianapolis, but given that the Andrew Luck era will officially begin on Thursday night, now is as good a time as any for one more look at the decision to let Manning walk.
A reader recently requested that I go back and reexamine the predictions I made in the 'Old Manning' piece I wrote before...

The coaching carousel affects every program eventually, but some schools emerge far better off than others. Last year, Stanford saw the tough side of the business, after Jim Harbaugh bolted for San Francisco and took a good chunk of the Cardinal brain trust with him. This offseason, the staff David Shaw built largely survived intact, but the few changes that did occur could impact 2012 and beyond.
