Found April 21, 2013 on PPR Fantasy Football:
Over the past five seasons, the NFL has become a pass heavy league. GM and Head Coaching positions essentially live and die by their team’s record. The quarterback position often dictates if a team can make it to the playoffs (unless of course you have Adrian Peterson and then don’t fumble the snap and try to convert on third down). Quarterbacks have been drafted early and often the past few years. In 2011, there were six quarterbacks selected in the first 36 draft picks. Cam Newton was the 2011 overall first pick and was a highly touted recruit who had led the Auburn Tigers to the BCS National Championship and won the Heisman Trophy. Colin Kaepernick led his team to a WAC title and also was one of three NFL bound quarterbacks to rush for 20 touchdowns and pass for 20 touchdowns in the same season.

San Francisco 49ers: 2013 NFL Mock Draft

The 2013 NFL draft is days away for the San Francisco 49ers, and I predict a lot of trades on draft day, because the 49ers have so many picks this year. They have 14 picks, and for a franchise that isn’t rebuilding that’s a problem, because you don’t want lots of talent that other teams will wait to scoop up after final cuts come in August. I have predicted three trades on...

In depth 2013: San Francisco 49ers

Everyone remembers how Colin Kaepernick took over for the injured Alex Smith midway through the 2012 season and led the San Francisco 49ers and the team’s fans on a magical ride right through the Super Bowl in February. There have been a few free agency defections from the roster that finished just a few yards away from winning the Super Bowl after the 2012 season. But for the...

Anthony Dixon Looking For A Bar Where Everybody Knows His Name

Former Mississippi State and current San Francisco 49ers running back Anthony Dixon was in Starkville this weekend for the Bulldogs' spring game and festivities surrounding said spring game.  All appeared to be going well, as Dixon even got in the spring game and scored a touchdown in street clothes, until Saturday night when Dixon, along with many others apparently, was denied...

49ers gear up for draft with 13 picks

With 13 draft picks, Trent Baalke has built quite the board of potential players. A board that is well prepped but could change quickly as the draft unfolds. The San Francisco 49ers general manager has already fielded his share of calls from teams trying to boost their chances by acquiring some of those selections from the NFC champions. ''It's up to us to turn those...

Jim Nantz wanted to jump out of Super Bowl booth

We all remember the now-infamous blackout that occurred during this year's Super Bowl. Thanks to a faulty power supply (and Beyonce's literal lights out halftime performance), the Superdome faded to black like the end of "The Sopranos," sending the entire CBS crew into a frenzy. It was at that point that Jim Nantz was ready to take matters into his own hands...

While other NFL teams are in search of quarterbacks and running backs, new Carolina general manager Dave Gettleman said the Panthers wouldn't mind walking away from the NFL draft with big offensive and defensive linemen.
