Another potential sleeper in this year's draft, Kentucky's Danny Trevathan:
Great speed and pursuit on plays. Trevathan has great fundamentals and is a tackling machine, as he led the SEC and ranked #5 nationally. He also was mentioned for All-American awards. He will add to any team’s linebacker depth chart.
Small at 6’0”. If he's 6’3”, he's up there with Luke Kuechly. People should remember Zach Thomas or Sam Mills; height is not everything.

But that didn’t stop the team from making a surprise selection again this April and taking the star receiver out of Baylor.
Kendall Wright saw steady growth in his four-year college career at Baylor.
“When he gets the ball in his hands, he’s special,” Mike Mayock...
Think back to December 1st, 2011, right after the Philadelphia Eagles took a beating at the hands of the hapless Seattle Seahawks, 31-14. Do you remember how you felt?
I do, and the two best words I can use to describe it without turning this into a profanity-laced tirade are angry and disgusted.
That was the Eagles’ fourth loss in a span of five games to drop their record...
Cornerback Asante Samuel has been traded from the Eagles to the Falcons in exchange for a late-round draft pick, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Samuel may be 31, but has plenty of good football left in him, and most recently made the Pro Bowl in 2010. Atlanta gets him at a nice bargain, and he will most notably help their secondary slow down Brees Brees and New...

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Atlanta Falcons are close to acquiring Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel for a late-round pick.
The Falcons and Eagles had agreed on the terms of a trade yesterday, but they were having a problem with agreeing with Samuel on a pay cut that would be beneficial to both sides. Samuel wanted to keep most of the $10 million he’s...
I've written about what I think the Titans need on offense and defense. Now it's time to turn those thoughts into actual picks. For this little exercise, I'll be using this seven-round mock by Chad Reuter, formerly of NFLDraftScout and now with NFL Network. The rules for this are simple: any player Chad had off the board at the point I can't pick. Everybody else is...
