As expected, people are already speculating how the Pittsburgh Steelers will use outside linebacker Jarvis Jones on defense during his rookie season.

If they are...

In a pre-taped segment that aired on ESPN before the NFL draft, comedian Frank Caliendo broke out his impression of NFL draft expert Mel Kiper Jr., and he absolutely nailed it.

The reality is, however, nobody knows how these players will turn out, and whether or not they...

ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. released his final mock draft today, and with the sixth pick he gives the Browns CB Dee Milliner-
“The Browns are really desperate for another corner to play opposite Joe Haden. If they get Milliner, that’s a solid No. 2 option, also allowing them to move Buster Skrine inside to cover the slot, a position where he’s far better. The need for...
