Chiefs take on a big project with selection of Tanoh Kpassagnon May 4, 2017

Tanoh Kpassagnon has a chance to be the biggest NFL star out of Villanova since Brian Westbrook. And that’s not just because he’s 6’7 and nearly 300 pounds.

A former three-sport star in high school, the pass-rushing end blossomed from a ball of potential into the Colonial Athletic Association’s defensive player of the year in 2016. Kpassagnon exploded from FCS small standout to pro prospect after notching 21.5 tackles for loss, including 11 sacks, in a brilliant senior season. Now, he’ll play on Sundays with the Kansas City Chiefs after being selected with the 59th pick of the 2017 NFL draft.

Kpassagnon was one of the rare non-FBS prospects to hear his name called before Saturday.

Finally, their hard work will pay off. Over the next few days, 253 players will hear their names called at the podium and several others will sign as undrafted free agents.

The Cleveland Browns hold the first overall pick in this year’s draft. Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett is the favorite to go off the board first, but there were late rumors that they could be eyeing quarterback Mitchell Trubisky instead.

A Super Bowl champion and three-time Pro Bowler is one of many talented undrafted free agents (Doug Baldwin, Vontaze Burfict and the recently retired Tony Romo, to name a few) to make an impact in the NFL, proving yet again that even some of the league’s best players slip through the cracks.

Romo, of course, is the big name here. The quarterback everyone loved to hate overcame drastic odds, making his way from undrafted rookie to Dallas Cowboys legend. His rise MLB Cheap Jerseys From China to stardom just goes to show that the draft pick you’ve never heard of could be a superstar in the Cheap Jordan Jerseys China making.

Mixon and his victim made public peace with each other. May 1, 2017

“Without the incident, he’s a top-five pick,” as one NFC executive has said. The stats more than back that up.

Recently, Mixon and his victim made public peace with Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping each other. She said that she is “satisfied that we are going to put this behind us and work towards helping others who may have found themselves in similar circumstances.”

The team that drafts Mixon will be scorned for choosing wins over character. He will have an opportunity to prove that when he says, “That’s not me. That’s not the way that I was raised,” he means it. But until years have passed and he has backed it up — if he has — he remains a character and PR risk.

Let’s run through the rest of Kadar’s top five prospects. Charlton is an aggressive end who uses his size and strength to create leverage and drive offensive tackles backward. While he doesn’t have great long-run speed, he’s twitchy at the line of scrimmage. This allows him to time snaps well and use an explosive first step to knock blockers off balance early.

Lamp showed tremendous athleticism in Indianapolis, landing in the top five offensive linemen in four of the six drills in which he participated. With an 111-inch broad jump and 34 powerful reps on the bench Cheap Kids NBA Jerseys press, he showcased the strength and explosiveness to translate his skills from Conference USA to the NFL.

He’ll get the advantage of a learning curve his rookie season. Lamp protected quarterback Mike White’s blind side as a starting left tackle, but is projected to move inside and start his NFL career as a guard. While his average height and arm length may keep him stuck in an interior role, the Chargers are betting they’ll get several years of Pro Bowl service from him after spending a premium draft pick to get him.

Ray Rice denies he’s been hired as running backs coach for New Jersey high school April 19, 2017

Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has been not been hired as the running backs coach at Don Bosco Prep in New Jersey, the school said Monday afternoon via USA Today.

Jane McManus received a text message from Rice Blue Jays Cheap Jerseys denying that he had accepted a position as well:

On Feb. 28 against Washington, Durant suffered an MCL sprain that has kept him out for the past 17 games. Golden State plays two more games before Saturday, against the Timberwolves at home and vs. the Suns in Phoenix. Their final three games are all at home, which will allow Durant a comfortable, controlled return to form for the superstar who joined Golden State last summer.

Durant s absence from the Warriors has clearly hurt them in some ways, but lately, Golden State has been rolling anyway. Golden State has rattled off 11 straight wins, prompting Warriors head coach Steve Kerr to joke that they might not even need him when he returns.

However, Golden State s struggles earlier in Durant s absence proves how valuable he is. Whenever the Warriors just need a player who can Cheap Moto X Jerseys go get a bucket, Durant is that player. From March 8 to 11, the Warriors lost three straight games Cheap Mountain Bike Jerseys vs. Boston, at Minnesota and at San Antonio in the infamous rest game for the first time since 2014. Though their winning streak came after that, it was a reminder that they need Durant.

Durant is playing 3-on-3 and 4-on-4 with the team, according to ESPN. Kerr told reporters over the weekend that Durant will return to the starting lineup whenever he is cleared by trainers.

Patrick Ewing hired as Georgetown head basketball coach April 15, 2017

Former Georgetown Hoyas basketball star Patrick Ewing is returning to the school as the team s head coach, the school announced Monday. Ewing has been a Charlotte Hornets associate head coach since 2013 and an NBA assistant since 2002.

Ewing will replace John Thompson III, whom Georgetown fired after the season. Thompson spent 13 years at Georgetown and made the NCAA tournament eight times, but he missed it in three of the last four years and finished below .500 in the last two. His total record on the hill was 278-151 in in 429 games. Thompson coached some great players and some great Cheap NFL Jerseys offenses in the late 2000s, but he fell off.

Well, it s sad that Arnold is not here. We were friends Cheap Mls Jerseys for 60 years almost. We traveled the world extensively and to all corners of the globe, promoting the game of golf.

We were like brothers. We were like brothers. He came to my ranch and we went to the game reserve in South Africa. We went down in the gold mines. And I went to his house at both Bay Hill and up in Pennsylvania. We played around the world and competed against each other for 60 years.

But everything shall pass and Arnold Palmer had a great life. People loved him. We really tried to beat each other all the time. We knew that and it was part of the deal. I called him Tarzan because he liked his drink, he liked his cigarettes, and he never really worried about what he ate. If I did that, I would have been dead at 70. I always called him Tarzan he lived until 87!

Rowe recently called out the Panthers for their work ethic over the past few weeks April 13, 2017

The two men fought around the ring and Taker chokeslammed Reigns on top of the announce table. Taker set up to do a move, but Reigns speared him through the Spanish announce table, sending both men crashing into the barricade.

The call him a cab part is in reference to the firing of former head coach Gerard Gallant, who was seen hailing a taxi in Raleigh after being let go in November.

The anger is directed at Tom Rowe, the general manager and current Cheap NFL Jerseys China head coach of the Panthers. Rowe has put together an extremely good young core of Aleksander Barkov, Vincent Trocheck, Nick Bjugstad, Jonathan Huberdeau, and Aaron Ekblad, but hasn t filled in the gaps with compatible talent.

Rowe recently called out the Panthers for their work ethic over the Cheap Michael Jordan Jerseys For Sale past few weeks, saying that the players signed long-term aren t safe from trades in the future.

Then the next season starts, and they re using the same storyline. Lazy, lazy writers! Let me walk you through this:

Derek Law struck out 50 batters last year and walked nine in 55 innings. He finished the season with a 2.13 ERA and a 2.53 FIP. If the Giants bullpen was going to be better this season, Law was going to be a huge part of that.

Mark Melancon has been unimpeachably awesome for four seasons now, one of baseball s absolute best closers. In his last 290 innings, he s been good for a 1.80 ERA, 2.25 FIP, and 212 ERA+, with a superb 6-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

And while it s not like we can make any grand proclamations after one game only five of the six division winners won their first game last year, after all that doesn t mean we can t learn anything on Opening Day.

Here are some lessons about the first day of 2017 baseball, then. Some of the lessons are more important than other lessons, but the most important lesson is that just because one game out of 162 games doesn t have to mean everything, that doesn t mean it s completely devoid of meaning.

Bryce Harper hit the 5th Opening Day home run of his career April 9, 2017

That is a very good Konami reference! I m still upset that doing it in Gradius III blew up the ship, but even more upset that according to Wikipedia, replacing and with the L and R triggers of the SNES controller powers up the ship.

Anyway, the point is that Bryce Harper is good. Good beyond his Earth age. There was a weird time when people actually wanted him to play more minor-league baseball and I m glad we re through it. The only questions I have about Harper now are $400 million or $500 million? Cheap NFL Jerseys China and Dodgers or Yankees? I certainly don t have one about him hitting Opening Day home runs.

(The record for Opening Day home runs is eight, by the way, shared Cheap Queensland Jerseys by Adam Dunn and Hall of Famers Ken Griffey, Jr. and Frank Robinson.)

The NBA playoffs begin on April 15. The standings are beginning to shape up, but there s still a lot that won t be determined until every regular season game has concluded. Whether Golden State or San Antonio ends up with the top seed in the Western Conference is one unknown, and making sure Cleveland holds onto the No. 1 spot in the East is also still up in the air.

Right now, this is what we do know about the playoff races. Tiebreakers will factor in for some race at some point, in all likelihood. There will be important games that haven t been played yet. At this point, what teams have remaining on the schedule matters immensely, since there s such a small portion of the season left.

Here s all the information you should know about every team with a chance at making the playoffs well, you know, at least a realistic one.

Nick Foles doesn’t need to run to work Eagles offense, says Chip Kelly April 3, 2017

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles isn’t exactly Michael Vick when it comes to making plays happen with his feet, a fact that coach Chip Kelly says isn’t stopping his offense from still being effective, per Reuban Frank of CSN Philly.

“Actually, it was bothering me a lot,” Peterson said of the injury. “There were a couple plays in the first half, oh man, I knew if I was able to explode the way I normally do I could have gotten some big chunks, even taken it to the house.”

Peterson averaged just 3.1 yards on 21 carries against Seattle’s formidable defense, his lowest per carry rate since Week 7.

“That groin is bothering him,” coach Leslie Frazier said. “It definitely affected him. There were a couple of moments when he was so close to breaking it and just couldn’t get that one NBA Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping key ingredient to get it going. He’s not 100 percent.”

Shazier flies around. He’s got a lot of Lavonte David in him. He’s all over the field. I loved Lavonte David at Nebraska and I love Shazier. He can play every down. He can cover. He can play every down. He’s a great tackler in the open field which you have to do in today’s NFL. Shazier is a heckuva football player.
On senior running back Carlos Hyde:

Last season’s NFL rushing leader brushed off Cheap NHL Jerseys the idea that he should sit out until the injury heals, saying “I’m going to try to get my rest that I need. I’m probably going to do it this week (in practice). Just push it to Sunday.”

Peterson struggled through an almost identical situation earlier this season when he admitted a bruised hamstring was preventing him from exploding out of his cuts. He bounced back to average 4.7 yards per carry over his next three games.

NFL Week 12’s fantasy football waiver wire targets March 31, 2017

You play fantasy football. You need suggestions for potential gems on the waiver wire for Week 12. You watch this video. Yes, it’s really that easy.

You might be one of those people who are wondering why the Bucs suddenly look so much better than they did during most of their eight-game losing streak to start the season. Don’t fall for the easy narratives people will throw out there like all of a sudden Bucs head coach Greg Schiano’s “plan” is working, or that a new guy here and a new guy there has turned everything around. Here are the top five reasons the Bucs have looked better.

At the same time, Texans head coach Gary Kubiak pushed the panic button by pulling starter Case Keenum in the third quarter for Matt Schaub, the guy who he benched earlier this year. The Texans were only down 11 and Keenum hadn’t played so bad that any kind of change was needed at the time. Especially when you factor in how long Kubiak stayed with Schaub after he threw pick six after pick six to start the season.

The excuse that he had to change the offense was horse crap and everybody knows it. There wasn’t anything ground breaking that the Texans did after Schaub came into the game — as a matter of fact, it looked just as predictable as it has all season.

What did he have to show for this “bold move”? Two field goals and his star wide receiver walking into the locker room before the final minutes went off the clock because of a verbal altercation with Schaub.

Carolina Panthers – Marqise Lee, Wide Receiver, USC: It seems like every year, the Carolina Panthers need to add a wide receiver, because every year, they ignore the Cheap Chelsea Jerseys position for Cheap Atlanta Braves Jerseys too long on draft day.

Max Scherzer will not be on the mound when the Nationals open their season April 3 against the Marlins, but the team hopes he’ll be ready to go soon after the opener.

Manager Dusty Baker acknowledged to reporters Thursday that Scherzer will “probably not” be able to pitch at the very beginning of the season, but the team doesn’t necessarily expect the right-hander to start the year on the disabled list.

Scherzer has been slowed throughout spring training by a lingering stress fracture in his right ring finger. The injury kept him from throwing his fastball early in camp and he has been experimenting with a three-fingered grip for the pitch that he planned to try out in a minor league game Thursday.

The 32-year-old vowed to reporters earlier this week that he would be ready to start the season, but it appears the team is trying to keep him focused on the big picture.

“Opening day, I’m sure it’s important for him, but not as much as the rest of the season,” Baker said.

It’s an interesting idea, though Donaldson’s Hall of Fame chances look average, maybe a little less. Having turned 31 in December and staked his claim at one of baseball’s most demanding positions, third base, Donaldson’s on a race against time. There’s a good chance he could wind up with a great career by peak value. Still, he might wind up short for a plaque.

A season without colossal injuries would Cheap Jordan Jerseys China be welcomed by the Mets this season after the injury bug plagued the rotation in 2016, devastating their postseason chances.

Jacob deGrom, Steven Matz and Detroit Lions Cheap Jerseys Matt Harvey — the team’s wild card — all appear healthy to start the 2017 season. They all have ace-like qualities, but that position is currently occupied by Noah Syndergaard.

Wholesale Jerseys NFL March 20, 2017

Kansas City remains the class of the NFL after defeating the Browns in Week 8. The Chiefs jumped up to a double-digit lead at halftime and were able to close the game with their league-leading eighth win of the season. The combination of big plays and dominating defense allowed for the Chiefs to maintain a two score lead for most of the game, despite the two-touchdown performance of Browns quarterback Jason Campbell.

The Browns running game continues to NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys struggle, despite the performance of the passing game. The lack of a run allowed for Cleveland to slide behind early and the Browns never really recovered. The Browns defense allowed for two touchdowns from Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith and failed to stop Jamaal Charles on the run in the 23-17 loss.

Matt Verderame of Arrowhead Pride believes the Chiefs defense did a good job, but did give away a few big plays against the Browns:

The defense was a mixed bag. While giving up 17 points is not bad, the unit gave up huge chunks at times. Wide receiver Josh Gordon was the major target as expected with four receptions and 123 yards with a touchdown. Jordan Cameron also had four grabs and 81 yards.

Ultimately, Kansas City found a way to get it done. The Nike NFL Jerseys 2014 defense stiffened late, not allowing a point after the first drive of the second half. Justin Houston got the only sack of the game for the Chiefs, being held in check most of the game. Derrick Johnson had the best game of his season, totaling 12 tackles including two tackles for loss.
Chris Pokorny of Dawgs By Nature believes wide receiver Davone Bess was a major negative in Sunday’s loss.
