2017 NFL Mock Draft: Johnny Manziel cracks the top 15 picks

The draft order is far from set, dozens of college football players still need to decide whether or not they will enter the 2017 NFL Draft, and a bunch of free agent moves will determine team needs. Sounds like the perfect time to do a mock draft, right?

The Bears offense is more complex than Jeff Fisher’s finely tuned field goal machine. The outcome in this one hinges on the matchup of the Rams pass rush against the Bears offensive line. Chicago’s only allowed 16 sacks all season. It won’t be as easy for St. Louis’ front four to feast on this team like it has against so many backup-laden and inferior blocking units. Then you’ve got the problem of a leaky secondary matched up against big men like Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. St. Louis could definitely win this one, but the safer bet here is on the Bears.

What else do I need to say here? But if you want more, how about the fact that Atlanta’s last three opponents scored at least 33 points. The Bucs hung 41 on them. Worse still, the Falcons have a -9 turnover differential in their last four games. Look away, Atlanta friends, from what about to say next. Drew Brees is 12-3 against the Falcons since joining the Saints. He’s thrown for 300+ yards in 10 of those games, and there’s a near certain probability he’ll make it 11 this week.

Joe Flacco attempted to be a playmaker on a day the Baltimore Ravens needed a game manager. Forcing passes in the swirling Chicago wind wasn’t the right move, and ultimately the margins were too thin on Sunday to succeed after throwing two interceptions. Flacco is getting too much grief after his contract extension, but he needs to become a more reliable short passer when that’s what the game demands.

Running back Arian Foster will sit out Sunday’s game against the Cardinals

Oh, I like this very much. The experience of watching football would be improved dramatically if all offensive and defensive linemen had to play with simple clubs instead of hands. Holding would be almost completely eliminated. Tipped passes and fumbles would become circus events of clumsy flailing. We’d have to give the center use of his dominant hand, of course, but otherwise this is a flawless plan. Get on it, Goodell.

Jalin Marshall Womens Jersey But if it’s the Mutant League we’re trying to create, why stop at a simple club-hand made of tape? Why should my Photoshop stop at the bounds of realism? You want hammer-hands? You get hammer-hands:

Kamalei Correa Womens Jersey While I enjoy the prospects for blunt force trauma should Matthews play with a variety of hammers for hands, we still haven’t reached the ceiling for maximum violence. Is there any way we can maintain Matthews’ bludgeoning ability while also giving him the opportunity to cleave players open at the shoulder joint?

Running back Arian Foster will sit out Sunday’s game against the Cardinals and is hopeful that he won’t miss the remainder of the year due to his back injury. Also out for the Texans is linebacker Mike Mohamed, while the rest of the team’s injury report features 11 players listed as probable.

Arizona’s injury report is relatively light, as only four players appear, and three are listed as probable. Matt Shaughnessy, Daryl Washington and John Abraham are all expected to play, and offensive tackle Bradley Sowell is listed as questionable after missing practice with an illness.

Through nine games this season, about the only thing the Eagles have proven is that they are wildly inconsistent. Some weeks, Philadelphia’s offense looks unbeatable, like last week when it racked up 49 points through three quarters against Oakland. Other weeks, the offense is almost non-existent, including back-to-back losses when the Eagles combined to score 10 points.

EJ Manuel will start for Bills vs. Steelers

The Bills get a much-needed boost Sunday as quarterback E.J. Manuel is active and will be starting in Buffalo’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Adam Schefter.

Limited Mens Sean Couturier Jersey Manuel has not started since the beginning of October due to a knee injury sustained against the Cleveland Browns. His rookie season had been a mixed bag where Manuel led the Bills to a 2-3 record, including two games where he posted a passer rating of more than 85.0.

The team was forced to turn to quarterbacks Thad Lewis and Jeff Tuel while Manuel recovered, but neither was able to deliver wins to Buffalo. Without Manuel, the team went 1-3 and the offense lacked consistency. Sunday’s game against the Steelers will be an opportunity for the Bills to halt their two game slide, and try to put together a run so they can threaten for a wild card spot.

Most importantly, Manuel’s ability to play allows first-year head coach Doug Marrone more opportunities to evaluate his young quarterback and get him regular season reps, which will put the team in good stead for 2017 and beyond.

I think this is the week the Buccaneers breakthrough. They even have history on their side. Since the NFL expanded to a 16-game schedule in 1978, 11 of the 26 teams to start 0-8 have won their ninth game, as pointed out by Celebrity Hot Tub on Wednesday.

NFL free agency: Martellus Bennett signs with Packers

Martellus Bennett is coming off one of his better NFL seasons to date in 2016, and it looks like he took advantage of that in free agency.

According to a report from NickSportsTV, the former Patriots tight end is expected to sign with the Packers, who confirmed the news. NFL Network reported Green Bay signed Bennett to a three-year, $21 million contract. ESPN reported it as a three-year, $18.45 million contract

The Hall of Fame-bound pass rusher began his NFL career with the Panthers in 2002 but has spent the past seven seasons in Chicago (2013-13) and Green Bay (2014-16).

Peppers turned 37 in January and next fall would mark his 16th season in the NFL. He’s hardly over the hill, though, recording 7.5 sacks last season for the Packers. Peppers’ 143.5 sacks are the most among active players and fifth all-time behind Hall of Famers Bruce Smith, Reggie White, Kevin Greene and Chris Doleman.

Carolina re-signed Charles Johnson earlier this week, and the veteran defensive lineman said at the time he was trying to lure Peppers back to the fold. It appears he might just get his wish.

His dream day of food, as described to USA TODAY Sports in 2009, consists of at least one dessert item for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Orlando Magic supposedly wooed Howard in a 2012 contract negotiation meeting by filling the meeting room with all his favorite candy.

With Shanahan鈥檚 help, however, Howard was able to cut sugar from his diet completely. Unsurprisingly, the tingling feeling stopped, and his blood-glucose levels eventually dipped a whopping 80 percent, according to Berger.

Post-intervention Dwight averaged 2.1 more points 1.8 more rebounds per game, and the Lakers鈥?record improved.

Broncos Super Bowl gear may also be part of Tom Brady is jersey heist

Early Monday morning, the NFL confirmed Tom Brady is stolen jersey from Super Bowl 51 was discovered. Not only that, but Tom Brady is jersey from Super Bowl 49 was also found, and there could be more, according to Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer.

The NFL insider appeared on FS1 is Undisputed Monday to provide some additional details into the discovery of Brady is jerseys. In the process, he revealed the Denver Broncos believe this culprit also took Von Miller is helmet and/or cleats. The connection between all items is that they were memorabilia from the Super Bowl MVPs.

Glazer also added there is other things, although he did not elaborate fully as to what else could be stolen.

As for the Brady heist, Glazer said NFL security, Patriots security and the FBI collaborated and have zeroed in on a person of interest. He revealed the suspect somehow snuck into the team is locker room after the game.

He actually, from what I am told, they have him going into the locker room right behind Bill Belichick as if he is with the team, Glazer said. Goes in there, loiters around a little while and is seen leaving the locker room — this is the video they are trying to look at right now — seen leaving a little bit later with something under his arm.12

Red Sox pitcher Drew Pomeranz leaves spring training start early with tightness in left triceps

Authentic Youth Kyle Arrington Jersey
Left-hander Drew Pomeranz left a start one inning earlier than expected Sunday, and once again, the Boston Red Sox are hoping a starting pitcher hasn’t suffered a serious injury.

Pomeranz complained of tightness in his left triceps, a sensation that developed in the first inning against the Minnesota Twins and persisted through the second. He threw 47 pitches and didn’t come out for a third scheduled inning.

Although Pomeranz described the issue as “nothing crazy” and told reporters he doesn’t believe it’s anything serious, the Red Sox must be wary. Pomeranz experienced left elbow/forearm stiffness late last season and received a stem-cell injection over the winter.

“It’s not related to the area that was addressed in the offseason,” Farrell told reporters, nevertheless adding that the team will “be careful” with Pomeranz.

Even if the Saints sign Daniel as their backup, they could consider drafting a quarterback this year. Although Brees is still thriving, he is 38 years old and heading into the final year of his contract.

Daniel is back on the market after requesting his release from the Eagles earlier this month. Daniel reportedly wanted a chance to compete for a starting job elsewhere after getting stuck behind rookie Carson Wentz in Philadelphia last year. The Eagles signed Daniel to a three-year, $21 million contract to compete for a starting job before they drafted Wentz.

I called a lot of man coverages, and I blitzed on nearly every play.

Oakland Raiders Game Jersey Oh goodness gracious. This was my first clear indication that things might proceed more horribly and wrongly than Breaking Madden has ever seen.

This time around, I played as the Panthers for every single offensive, defensive, and special-teams snap. I never took control of the Buccaneers, because I wanted our Schianos to make every decision of their own volition.

Deone Bucannon Elite Jersey I called a lot of man coverages, and I blitzed on nearly every play. Quarterback Greg Schiano had about …

… 1.2 seconds available between receiving the ball, and having a non-Schiano man all over him. To his credit, Greg Schiano did find a few open targets, namely Greg Schiano, Greg Schiano, and Greg Schiano. They were all short gains, though, and the Bucs never managed a first down.

Coming off back-to-back wins, the Panthers are 3-3 and have a chance to move above .500 for the first time since Ron Rivera took over as the head coach. Carolina had some offensive issues early in the season, but has looked better recently. The Panthers are averaging 34.3 points in victories and 12.0 points in losses this season.

Newton appears to have taken the next step as a passer and is coming off arguably the best passing game of his career. He threw for just 204 yards against the Rams, but completed 15-of-17 passes, good for 12.0 yards per attempt. He’s averaging 7.8 YPA this season and 9.2 YPA in October.

The Panthers defense is in the discussion of the best units in the NFL. Carolina is second in points allowed and have allowed the third-fewest yards per game. Carolina is solid across the board, ranking fifth against the pass and fourth against the run.

Who is on the NCAA tournament selection committee for college basketball?

For two hours on Sunday, CBS will unveil the 68 teams destined for March Madness. There will be jubilation for the teams that hear their names called and heartbreak for those who aren’t extended an invite.

But who is in charge of selecting and seeding those 68?

Meet the NCAA selection committees, or the ones who determine team ranks each week and orchestrate all of March’s madness.

As for the four teams likely to play in Dayton, there are eight candidates, one of whom seems to be a lock. Of the remaining seven, all have deeply flawed profiles, and the top five squads are more likely to be selected than the bottom two. Still, it wouldn’t surprise me to see any of these teams picked or left out. The Selection Committee could probably draw names from a hat and be fine. The arguments are all going to be the same afterward, anyway.

On to the capsules, starting with a team that only fell down here after Rhode Island’s win, and ending with two longshots that honestly deserve a long look.

But nearly a year before the 2016-17 team took the court for the first time, things started heading south. It began with Giles tearing his ACL for the second time that November, shortly before he committed.

The road back has been a slow one, further complicated by knee surgery in the preseason that caused him to miss the first 11 games. He’s still far from 100 percent and has struggled at times to ease into the college game, especially considering the rest of his team and competition had the benefit of an entire preseason and pre-conference season.

That’s part of the reason why many outside the program believed Giles shouldn’t play at all this season. His talent is undeniable, so he would surely be a high NBA draft pick based on potential alone. There isn’t much he could gain personally by playing half a season at Duke and further jeopardizing his health.
