Receivers to watch out for

I had originally planned for Dupree to be my final draft profile for the 13th overall pick. The only offensive players I had even the slightest intention of highlighting were Scherff and Collins because of the Saints great need for better talent on the interior offensive line. I am now forced to conclude that Mickey Loomis was fully aware of this intention and he wanted to remind...

Jaelen Strong makes scouts look silly in NFL combine

Arizona State wide receiver Jaelen Strong already found his name in enough mock drafts that calling him a first-round pick wouldn't be looney. Arguably, the majority of draft experts see him there, even though Strong's speed has been his biggest criticism. NFL.com's draft profile of Strong quoted an NFL scout who said, "He's not going to run fast, but it won't matter because any...

There are two places teams can find playmakers to help them in the passing game. Via free agency is one, but that can be a pricey proposition (see the contracts Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas are about to sign). In the draft is the second, but that can be a little bit of a gamble, since college stats are so skewed now by the video-game offenses run at that level. But no matter where...
