Gerhart could be viable handcuff for Peterson

Toby Gerhart will have late-round value as a potential fantasy handcuff to Adrian Peterson.

Brady has a new toy in New England

Bill Belichick is known for his creative play-calling, and with Arizona TE Rob Gronkowski now on the roster, he has another versatile weapon to employ.

Clausen won’t have seasonal value in 2010

One of my favorite super sleepers, Matt Moore, has some competition in rookie Jimmy Clausen.

Gronkowski put on memorable celebration

Team Gronkowski is a very excitable group. But they had good reason Friday when draft prospect Rob Gronkowski was chosen by the Patriots with the No. 42 overall pick.

Bills make surprise pick with NT Troup

In maybe the biggest surprise selection of the early part of the second round, Buffalo drafted nose tackle Torell Troup out of Central Florida.

Safeties, not quarterbacks, are hot property

It looks like QBs Jimmy Clausen and Colt McCoy‘s slide down the draft is going to continue for a while.

Benn will be worth a late-round flier

Arrelious Benn will be worth a late-round flier in larger fantasy leagues.

Chiefs getting more than just an exciting player

One of the most entertaining players to talk with throughout the pre-draft process of the past few months has been Dexter McCluster. While the dynamic playmaker is a joy to watch on the field, he is just as pleasant to converse with off the field as Kansas City fans and reporters will find out.

Dexter McCluster is a talented playmaker, but he won’t make a significant fantasy impact as a rookie.

Redskins, Titans deny Haynesworth deal in works

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan denied during an NFL Network interview Friday that Albert Haynesworth will be traded. However, team and league sources told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora that they’re convinced the Redskins will deal the disgruntled defensive tackle, most likely to the Titans for a third-round draft pick.

Second-round sleeper: UCLA CB Verner

I was all over new Jaguars DT Tyson Alualu going in the first-round a week ago (though admittedly, I expected it to happen in the 20s via a trade down, and not Jacksonville at 10th overall).

Behind the music at Radio City Music Hall

Time for more behind-the-scenes flavor from Radio City Music Hall, with a look at who’s behind the music.

Jets reps have some fun at the draft

Sometimes, it’s the light-hearted moments off the cameras that leave an impression at an event such as the draft. And what better team to provide such a comical diversion off-stage than the New York Jets.

Rams receiving multiple offers for No. 33 pick

The Rams are fielding multiple trade offers for the 33rd overall draft pick, and some proposals include a 2011 first-round selection, league sources confirmed to NFL Network insider Michael Lombardi.
