Cowboys’ needs filled in these two-round mocks, but questions remain

NFL JERSEYS
In Kiper’s mock, he had the Cowboys taking Alabama linebacker Rashaan Evans at No. 19 and Penn State tight end Mike Gesicki at No. 50. McShay had the Cowboys taking Florida defensive tackle Taven Bryan and Memphis receiver Anthony Miller with those picks. The Cowboys have linebacker, cheap authentic nfl jerseys defensive tackle and receiver needs. Tight end is a need as well but maybe not as much as the other three. Of the four picks, Evans and Bryan are among the Cowboys’ 30 national visits, which is a plus for both given the Cowboys’ history of taking players that visited their facility before the draft. The Cowboys had a second pro day of sorts with the Alabama players, sending their coaches to Tuscaloosa. At Bryan’s pro day, defensive coordinator…

Financial adviser Bethel Johnson flattered to ‘return’ to Pats’ headlines

Financial adviser Bethel Johnson flattered to ‘return’ to Pats’ headlines

NFL JERSEYS
Quick-hit thoughts and notes on the New England Patriots and NFL: 1. With one answer on the fastest kickoff returner he’s coached in 43 NFL seasons, Bill Belichick sparked some memories this past week, and also a question: Whatever happened to Bethel Johnson? Now 39, Johnson was flattered to be the source of some Patriots social-media buzz from the NFL’s annual meeting in Orlando, Florida, where Belichick was talking about newly acquired Cordarrelle Patterson as a return threat, and made it clear that nobody has ever been faster than Johnson (and those who played the Madden video game in 2005 certainly agree). It didn’t take long for word to get to Johnson, who has settled in his native Texas, is married with two kids (ages 7 and 4), and works…

Beast Mode, redux: Ravens bring in Derrius Guice for pre-draft visit

NFL JERSEYS
The Baltimore Ravens reportedly brought in LSU's Derrius Guice for a pre-draft visit Thursday, which will stir up the debate whether the team will take a running back at the No. 16 overall pick. Ravens coach John Harbaugh and assistant general manager Eric DeCosta custom nfl jerseys cheap have both said this offseason that the team will consider drafting a running back even though it's not considered the most pressing need on offense.

"If there’s a guy that we think is a special running back, a guy that can take a game over with his unique skill set, we’ll take that guy,"…

Why Connor McDavid belongs in the Hart Trophy discussion

Why Connor McDavid belongs in the Hart Trophy discussion

NFL JERSEYS
Let's start by identifying the leading contenders, and introduce the statistic in question. It's called presence, and it was first published over 30 years ago by hockey analytics pioneers Jeff Z. Klein and Karl-Eric Reif in their 1986 Hockey nfl jerseys cheap china Compendium as the first attempt to measure the importance of individual players to their teams. The first version of the statistic was specific to goals, and was calculated by dividing a player's goals (prorated over an entire season) by the number of goals scored by his teammates.

At 0.228, McDavid is in second place this season, narrowly trailing Alex Ovechkin by a rounding…

Weston Richburg takes center stage after signing with 49ers

Weston Richburg takes center stage after signing with 49ers

NFL JERSEYS
On March 9, 2016, the Atlanta Falcons reeled in their top free-agent target, center Alex Mack. He signed a five-year, $45 million deal that came with $28.5 million in guarantees. Two years and five days later, the San Francisco 49ers landed their top free-agent target, official nfl jerseys cheap center Weston Richburg. On March 14, the Niners lured Richburg from the New York Giants with a five-year, $47.5 million contract with $28.5 million in guarantees.

Giants’ trade could influence what the Colts do at No. 6 in draft

Giants’ trade could influence what the Colts do at No. 6 in draft

NFL JERSEYS
The NFL draft is still five weeks away, and if the past few days are any indication, it’s anybody’s guess what will happen at the top. The Indianapolis Colts shook up the top part of the draft when they moved back from No. 3 to No. 6 while also collecting additional second-round picks in this year's and next year’s drafts. The New York Giants will still pick No. 2 next month,nfl jerseys from china but they may have put a wrinkle in the Colts’ plans at No. 6 when they traded pass-rusher Jason Pierre-Paul to Tampa Bay on Thursday. How could that impact the Colts? The thought all along was that the Giants may be leaning toward using the No. 2 pick to select a quarterback who would eventually replace…

Don’t tell Tom Brady luck has anything to do with his NFL success

Don’t tell Tom Brady luck has anything to do with his NFL success

NFL JERSEYS
My favorite Tom Brady pass didn't result in a touchdown. It wasn't even a completion. And yet, the throw became an exemplar of not only his entire career but his claim for immortality. It occurred with 19 seconds left in Super Bowl XLII against the Giants. wholesale nfl jerseys The Patriots were technically still perfect, still 18-0, but now they trailed 17-14 and faced a third-and-20 from their own 16-yard line. Brady took the shotgun snap and rolled right. The sight of Brady on the move with so much at stake showed how far he had come. Brady has always been a paradoxical athlete, at once stellar enough out of California's Junipero Serra High to be both drafted by the Montreal Expos and awarded a football scholarship at Michigan, yet…
