St. Louis Rams: Defense should still be focus of Rams' two first round picks

The St. Louis Rams still have holes to fill on their roster. In the past, filling it through the draft was quite difficult for the Rams, to say the least. Last year was a different story. The Rams brought in Jeff Fisher and Les Snead and they produced a draft of young talent and players that will stick on the roster.  The Rams need the same luck this year. The Rams have the No...

Georgia Football: Ramik Wilson, “we’re younger and faster…”

One word comes immediately to mind when I think about the 2013 Georgia Bulldogs’ defensive unit: HUNGRY.

After all,  the schedule is harder, the teams around them...

His 4.7 time in the 40 was a tenth of a second better than what he ran at the NFL Combine last month. Te’o did help himself, but the...
