It’s in Philadelphia, along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway at the city’s Museum of Art.

From 1965 through 2014, the draft was located in New York City every year. It moved to the Auditorium Theater in Chicago for the last two years. This year’s venue in Philadelphia includes a main stage that is outdoors, and it looks like the environment along the Franklin Parkway will be pretty neat.

Of course, the logistics of the draft are secondary to the players and teams Toronto Maple Leafs Cheap Jerseys involved. The likely first overall pick is Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett, a pass-rushing demon who could change the face of the Browns’ (or some other team’s) defense.

Here’s actual draft person Dan Kadar’s scouting report on Trubisky:

Is he a one-year wonder who couldn’t beat out NFL backup Marquise Williams or truly a franchise quarterback? It’s unfair to fully declare it either way. But even the first part of that question makes Trubisky one of the greatest risks in this year’s draft, because of the position he plays.

If you like Trubisky, it starts with his athletic ability. He can maneuver around the pocket effortlessly, climbing as pressure builds around him, and he can get out on the move well enough. He can place the ball in all areas of the field and has a good arm, throwing just six interceptions on 446 attempts last season. He also knows how to work through progressions and has a quick enough release.

If you don’t like Trubisky, it’s because of his inexperience and the issues that come with it. He sometimes struggles to pick up blitzes and his ability to read a defense can be questionable (this was most evidenced against Stanford when he threw two interceptions). His deep ball accuracy is inconsistent.
So yeah. He’s not an Andrew Luck or a Jameis Winston, a QB most everyone agrees is a sure first-rounder. If a player like that were in this class, Trubisky might not even be a first-rounder. But Paypal Cheap Jerseys if GMs believe he’s the best of this group, he’ll command a high price regardless.

Dan Quinn and the Falcons covet speed on defense

The Browns made yet another smart move with the No. 25 pick they got from the Texans, selecting versatile defender Jabrill Peppers. Peppers played both safety and linebacker at the University of Michigan, though safety is his natural position. The Browns need playmakers in the secondary, and Peppers brings the added bonus of being able to return kicks and punts for Cleveland.

Dan Quinn and the Falcons covet speed on defense, and they got a fast pass rusher in Takkarist McKinley. Atlanta had to trade up to get him, swapping picks with the Seahawks to select McKinley 26th overall. McKinley celebrated by giving an emotional post-pick speech about his grandmother, complete with an f-bomb. He said the league could just fine him later.

The Bills bolstered the secondary with LSU’s Tre’Davious White at No. 27. The Cowboys were up next at No. 28, and addressed the pass rush with Taco Charlton.

The Browns had 11 picks going into the draft, and added more with the trade back that let Houston select Deshaun Watson. They took advantage of it, trading back into the first round to take tight end David Njoku at No. 29. Many analysts thought Njoku was a better prospect than Evan Engram, and the Browns need all the playmakers they can get.

McClellin was a piece of a Super Bowl-winning defense — with the Patriots. The hybrid defensive end/linebacker was versatile and productive at Boise State, recording 26 tackles for a loss and Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping three interceptions as an underclassman. However, he struggled to find a true position in Chicago, getting reps at end and on the second level but never finding the kind of pass-rushing impact Giants Cheap Jerseys he’d had in Idaho. He made four starts with New England last fall and worked as a platoon linebacker under Bill Belichick.

The San Antonio Stars were the first team on the clock

The 2017 WNBA draft is officially underway, and teams are now adding some of the country’s most talented college athletes in hopes of bolstering their squads for the upcoming season.

The San Antonio Stars were the first team on the clock, and many anticipated that they would select former Washington Huskies guard Kelsey Plum, who led the nation in scoring last season. They did just as experts predicted, taking Plum with the first overall pick. Here’s the full list of players selected in the first round:

The Bengals drafted Smith at No. 3 despite his relative lack of college production, and Smith missing rookie training camp time due to a contract dispute certainly didn’t help. He ended up starting just 17 games in four years — 3-14 record, 5-13 TD-INT ratio — with the Bengals, the only NFL team on which he played.

Many consider Leaf the biggest NFL Draft bust of all time, primarily due to the fact that he was debated alongside Peyton Manning atop the ’98 class. While poor off-field behavior and injuries contributed to Leaf’s NFL flame-out, his horrendous play — 13-33 TD-INT ratio, 48.8 rating and a record of 4-14 in 18 starts for the Chargers — would have been enough. San Diego dumped him as soon as the 2000 season ended.

The Heat’s second half was historic in several ways. They started 11-30 and finished 30-11, which is the most wins a team has ever had in the second half while still missing the playoffs. It was an enormous accomplishment by Miami to march back into the playoff picture like they did, and they should be proud regardless.

The 1991 Heisman Trophy winner found his niche as a return man Cheap Jerseys Paypal with the Green Bay Packers. Howard earned Super Bowl XXXI MVP honors for his performance in the return game, which featured a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and 244 total return yards. Howard finished Cheap Jerseys USA Soccer his career with nine returns for TDs.

Russell Westbrook and James Harden cut off all communication with each other during playoff series

Russell Westbrook and James Harden are known as close friends off the court and have been for many years. During All-Star weekend when the silence between Kevin Durant and Westbrook was deafening, Harden stayed by Westbrook’s side. So what do you know, the two MVP candidates/friends are facing off in the first round of the playoffs, but this time they won’t be speaking until it’s over. Not on the court, not off the court, not even a text message.

If the Seahawks and Raiders work out a trade for Lynch, Lynch doesn’t have to file a letter with the NFL asking to be reinstated. It also would mean that the Seahawks can’t try to recoup the bonus money paid out to Lynch.

The trade route is also more complicated, because the Seahawks and Cheap Volleyball Jerseys For Girls Raiders have to agree to rework Lynch’s contract first. Lynch is due $9 million this year, and the Raiders aren’t going to pay that much.

Lynch had to get permission from the Seahawks to speak to the Raiders because he’s under contract. Lynch’s agents have also been given permission to hammer out a new deal so a trade can take place, according to NFL.com.

If the Raiders and Seahawks aren’t able to work out all of the details to make a trade for Lynch happen, then he can go ahead and apply for reinstatement with the NFL. According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, Lynch Nike Elite Cheap Jerseys has already begun that process.

Upon reinstatement, Lynch would be back on the Seahawks’ roster, with his contract picking up where it left off.

The Seahawks would hold the right to get any signing bonus money back from Lynch, which is $5 million for the 2016 and 2017 seasons — if they were to release him.

As SB Nation’s Seahawks blog Field Gulls noted, the easiest route would be that the Seahawks release him and ask for the return on the bonus money. Then Lynch would be free to sign a new deal with the Raiders.

Mahomes was built to excel in pre-draft workouts.

He took the reins from there, putting up prolific aerial numbers in an offense known for them and forcing Webb’s transfer to Cal. Over his next two seasons, he threw for more than 9,700 yards and 77 touchdowns while completing nearly 65 percent of his passes. That was enough to put him in the draft discussion, but not enough to vault him to the upper tier of a weak crop of quarterbacks.

Fortunately, Mahomes was built to excel in pre-draft workouts. His biggest strength is the anti-aircraft gun disguised as his right arm. While he tested out in the top half of his group at the 2017 Draft Combine when it came to agility drills, his best performances came in passing exercises.

Mahomes showcased improved accuracy and power when throwing Baseball Jerseys For Sale downfield, unleashing the strength to consistently hit receivers near the sideline — a trait he flashed throughout his college career. He even wrapped up his pro day at Tech by launching a football into the troposphere, where it landed some 78 yards downfield. Even though he wasn’t flawless, the consensus after his workout was that he belongs in the NFL.

He’s also benefited from a scant free agent class. The biggest quarterback MLB Cheap Jerseys signing of 2017 to date has been Mike Glennon’s three-year pact with the Bears. After Tony Romo’s retirement, the best available option for a passer-needy team is either Colin Kaepernick or Jay Cutler. Neither one is a franchise cornerstone.

April 8 spring football schedule: 9 Power 5 games on TV and streaming online

Here’s Saturday’s schedule, via FBSchedules.com. Games on ESPN networks and the SEC Network are available for streaming at WatchESPN, and the other televised games generally have streaming homes through those outlets, too. All times are Eastern.

Spring ball is an optimistic time of the year. Every team is unbeaten, every early-enrollee freshman is really bonding with his new teammates, every new strength coach is Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping really molding his team into shape, and every single day is about teams getting a little bit better. It’s a uniquely college football thing, subject to lots of highly specific NCAA rules. The spring game isn’t usually exciting, but it can be a fun look at your team.

Some teams don’t even keep score, and spring games can take many formats other than standard football rules. They’re kind of silly, but they’re football. That’s the key.

The final group of the day features a couple of veterans, co-leaders Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia. That’s a good match, in that both are at the top of their games and have years of experience in these kinds of events. Rose brings a cold-blooded consistency to the game, while Garcia is the player who’s been the best for the longest period of time without yet winning a major. Watching them together should be a delight.

The penultimate group might draw even more eyeballs, though. That Wholesale MLB Jerseys features Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth, a couple of 20-somethings who are ranked sixth and eighth in the world, respectively. The two won the Ryder Cup together just last year and are known to be close friends. They’re also both within a couple shots of the lead on Sunday at the Masters, and they’ll be after each other all day at Augusta.

Tiger emerged as a transcendent star of the game and that was reflected in the TV ratings

UNC center Kennedy Meeks, fresh off the greatest game of his life, is a menacing offensive rebounder. There are no guarantees that Gonzaga can control him or his teammates on the Zags’ defensive glass. But if they can limit Meeks to merely a good rebounding game instead of a great one, the Zags will put a ton of pressure on UNC’s guards.

Tiger became the youngest winner of the Masters at age 21. Winning the Cheap Hockey Jerseys From China Masters is an impressive feat no matter a player’s age, but the fact that Tiger was doing it at this age and in an era when young talents did not make waves like this put the rest of the golfing world on notice.

Tiger emerged as a transcendent star of the game and that was reflected in the TV ratings. A record 43 million viewers tuned into to watch the coronation of golf’s new superstar. This still remains the high point for CBS’s coverage of the event. The final round of the ’97 Masters also remains the highest rated final round and major championship of all time. If anyone asks you why Tiger is so important to the game of golf, point to these numbers.

Not everything was positive during that week in 1997. There were several negative stories to come out of Augusta, most notably the comments made by Fuzzy Zoeller. When asked about Tiger, Zoeller made his infamous comments about next year’s Champions Dinner. Eventually the two would reconcile, but Cheap Golden State Warriors Jerseys it was a bad, bad, bad look that will forever be attached to Zoeller.

New England home underdogs for first time since 2005

The New England Patriots are one of the top teams in the AFC and are a perfect 5-0 at home this season, but neither of those factors kept them from being a home underdog this weekend. The Patriots will host the Denver Broncos, who are favored by 2.5 points in the opening line, according to OddsShark.com.

The line snaps a streak of 65 straight games the Patriots were favored at home, according to Got Cheap Jerseys Chris Chase of USA Today. New England hasn’t been a home underdog since it was a 3-point underdog against the Indianapolis Colts in 2005. Not only are the Patriots usually favored at home, they’ve been double-digit favorites 29 times in their last 65 home games.

If Locker is forced to sit out a full six months, he may still be able to suit up for the start of the Titans’ offseason workouts in May. Munchak was confident that the quarterback would be available for offseason training activities and training camp.

Locker’s 2017 season got off to a promising start. He appeared to be on his way to fulfilling his top 10 NFL Draft selection, throwing six touchdowns to zero interceptions over his first four games. He Cheap Old Basketball Jerseys suffered a knee injury that kept him out for most of October, however, and came back to throw two touchdowns to four interceptions over what would be his final three games of the season.

Locker went down for good in Week 10 during a loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. In three NFL seasons, he will have appeared in 23 games and missed 25 for the Titans due to injuries.

Kenny Vaccaro injury: Saints rookie has concussion, out for Week 11

The New Orleans Saints improved to 7-2 with a Sunday Night Football victory over the Dallas Cowboys, but suffered a loss as well, as rookie safety Kenny Vaccaro will be out for Week 11 after suffering a concussion, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Martin left the Dolphins roughly two weeks ago, upset with alleged harassment from teammates, notably offensive line-mate Richie Incognito. The drama surrounding Martin, Incognito and the Dolphins’ locker room has since blown up into a national news story. Several Dolphins players have already come out in support of Incognito, and admonished Martin for not handling the issue internally.

Without support from teammates, Martin would have a difficult time re-integrating himself back into the Dolphins’ locker room. Players on other teams have voiced support for Martin, however, so he would presumably be welcomed elsewhere.

Martin began the season as the Dolphins’ starting left tackle, and as a former second-round pick he has the talent to be a solid depth player, at the very least. If he stays in shape, Martin will likely continue his career elsewhere beginning in 2017.

The final Raiders drive ended with Terrelle Pryor taking his fourth sack of the game and losing the ball, and somehow the Giants have turned an 0-6 start into striking distance of winning the NFC East.

Part of why the Giants have turned things around? In five of those first six losses, New York’s defense allowed opponents to gain over five yards per play, but in three straight wins, the defense has held Texas Rangers Cheap Jerseys each team below four yards a play, including Oakland’s 3.87 average in this game. Kansas City is the only other team Youth Authentic Cheap Jerseys that’s kept the Raiders below a four yard average, and yes, this is an implicit way to say Eli Manning = Alex Smith.
