This is one of those pieces that wasn't planned, but I have to get it out..
For the last few weeks I've been lying low with the draft hype. Truth be told, I've had a few posts up about it, but Michael and Frank have done most of the leg work around here because they love talking about it. They watch college football and can't get enough of this stuff. Plus, I don't dig college football or experts who talk to me about Mock drafts who are always wrong. However, I do know what most people love to read about every year at this time, which is this stuff. Hence the reason there's draft coverage on this site and every outlet you look at.
I'm also pretty sure they (Mike and Frank) get that this is all a game of hype prior to the draft. Media/fan creations in a draft world that is so savvy, we are not above asking shrinks that if Buddy Nix takes a deap breath or blinks before he says the name Michael Floyd, does that count as anxiety, trepidation or excitement...

Peter King does great work and his Monday Morning Quarterback column is a must-read. He has some really enlightening information in the column even if you sometimes question his sources. Obviously Tom Heckert does, as he blatantly told the Cleveland press this week that he hasn’t talked to King in years. Be that as it may, King was talking about the 2012 NFL draft and the Browns’...
It’s been reported that the Jacksonville Jaguars are looking to trade the 7th overall pick in this week’s draft to move down. But, according to Peter King of SI.com, they aren’t receiving much interest at all for the pick.
It looks like the Jaguars won’t be able to move down unless they asking price significantly drops at this point.
According to Peter King of SI.com, the Indianapolis Colts would love to trade defensive end/linebacker Dwight Freeney for “a good pick” in tonight’s draft.
King pointed out that it won’t help the Colts that the Eagles only received a 7th round pick from the Falcons in return for Asante Samuel.
With Freeney scheduled to make over $14 million this season, I don’t know what...
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...
When we last left metta world warrior, Peter King, he was chiding those who think the Chiefs or Eagles might draft Ryan Tannehill two weeks after PK himself suggested both teams were likely suitors. He also laid into ungrateful reception dumpster Demaryius Thomas for not showing the appropriate thankfulness to Tim Tebow for completing a pass to him that one time. Good post-dinner...

The 2012 NFL Draft is almost here, and the Broncos are prepared for every scenario that could develop during the first round and beyond.

Michael Brockers is hot, Ryan Tannehill may not be....
Who is it going to be? Realistically, the Detroit Lions have to pick a player on Thursday. By the 23rd pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, most of the high profile players will be off the board. There are more than enough holes to pick a player at any number of positions….and the defensive secondary comes directly to mind. The linebacking corp played pretty well during the season, yet...
“Well, you can’t really go wrong with the #4 pick.”
Those were actual words spoken to me last week when discussing the Browns’ position in tonight’s draft. Naturally, the gentleman speaking those words was not a Browns fan, and apparently woefully ignorant of what it means to be a Cleveland fan.
The draft history of the “new Browns” was so bad that I started rooting...
Welcome to the first ever week of Chicago Sports Media Watch, the newest and soon to be greatest blog on Chicago Now. What are we about? I think this link can give you a great synopsis. When I was asked to do this blog by CN Director Jimmy Greenfield, I immediately thought of the old Chicago Tribune column “Inside Media” I loved reading as a teen/college student.
This blog will...
