It has been a preseason storyline the last three years. Instead of player dismissals hurting depth, as it did before the 2013 and 2014 seasons, this year’s main issue is the loss of one...

What will day 2 hold in store for the Green Bay Packers?

The Green Bay Packers pulled off one of the more surprising picks of the first round.

They have Micah Hyde to play the hybrid safety/cornerback so it’ll be interesting to see exactly where Randall fits into the defense. With Randall seemingly being a cornerback...

The Saints may have picked the perfect year to stockpile a bunch of picks in the first few rounds. The reason for that being that there simply aren’t a lot of ‘stars’ in this draft and the few that there are will be taken early.

What seems like the wave of the future today may only turn out to be a passing...
