Draft Strategy: First Round Trades by Tony Villiotti | Draft Metrics
The Washington Redskins made big news a couple of weeks ago by making an aggressive move to trade up to the second spot in the draft, presumably to take RG3. That trade is the first of a half-dozen or so, if history is any guide, which will affect the order of drafting in the first round. A new variable that could affect the number of first round trades is the introduction of the rookie salary cap.

Monday Musings – Manning, MJ & McCoy | IAOFM
After TJ cited Peyton Manning’s radio appearance on 104.3 last week, I spent some time thinking about what Manning had said. There’s no other way for me to put it – I feel like you’ve got to love Peyton’s approach in all of this.
