Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly delivered one of the most inspirational moments of the NFL Draft when he was the surprise guest picker on behalf of the Buffalo Bills in the second round.
Perhaps no one was more happy not to hear his team called on Thursday than Ohio State coach Urban Meyer.
Presumably, Meyer would have been pleased to hear an NFL team take his wide receiver Devin Smith in the first round, but whether Ohio State produced one first-round pick or none Meyer, that's a good thing.
One month into the 2015 MLB season and it’s no surprise to see Huston Street and Trevor Rosenthal among the leaders in saves for their respective leagues. But did you know that the Mets’ Jeurys Familia and Tigers’ Joakim Soria are tied with Street for the most entering May 1 with nine? Both are in the closer role for their teams because of injuries, which have had quite the early impact on bullpens around the league.
The Jameis Winston crab leg thing just won’t go away.
After being selected No. 1 overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Thursday night's NFL Draft, the former Florida State quarterback apparently celebrated his selection with crab legs. He posted the following image to Instagram and Twitter on draft night but later deleted the Instagram post.
It’s hard to beat the traditional scarlet and gold uniforms that the San Francisco 49ers have each season.
But there’s a new look coming to the team in 2015. The 49ers unveiled a new black alternate jersey on the first day of the 2015 NFL Draft. The team also unveiled matching pants to give San Francisco all black uniforms.
This isn’t an awful look, but why mess with San Francisco’s traditional uniforms?
After two drafts with no running back taken in the first round, Todd Gurley and Melvin Gordon both went in the first 15 picks of the 2015 NFL Draft. Gurley was the first to go, somewhat surprisingly to St. Louis at No. 10, while San Diego made the first trade of the night by swapping with San Francisco to move up two spots to take Gordon with the 15th overall pick.
The Big 12 is known for its high-scoring offenses and quarterback play, but the league enters 2015 with several unknowns under center. TCU’s Trevone Boykin is the clear favorite for first-team all-conference honors and one of the frontrunners for the Heisman Trophy. However, after Boykin is a host of unproven names.
