What if Bills receiver Stevie Johnson didn’t drop that should-have-been game-winning TD pass in overtime against the Steelers last season? Perhaps Pittsburgh wouldn’t have won the AFC North and advanced to the Super Bowl.

Happy Friday, everyone. Before rushing out to get those last-minute Mother’s Day gifts (that’s right, we’re talking to you), here’s a look at what’s on tap for your NFL.com perusal today:
Defensive line saw the biggest move from the previous 10 drafts, with 12 guys getting plucked where an average of just under eight were taken in years prior.
With the strong bond of a long-standing friendship, the top two receivers in the 2011 NFL Draft are taking a buddy-system mentality into Thursday night’s first round.

NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock spent 90 minutes Wednesday on a conference call talking with reporters about the 2011 NFL Draft. Those 90 minutes proved to be a gold mine of pre-draft knowledge, with Mayock sharing his thoughts on many of the prospects and what NFL teams are thinking.
As I expected, Marcell Dareus and Mark Ingram did not disappoint Wednesday.
It seemed like an unfair question. Someone asked NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt during a live chat Monday afternoon what player at the NFL Scouting Combine might be the biggest steal of the later rounds in April’s draft. Rather than sidestep the question, however, Brandt had a ready response.

Since the lights are still on at Lucas Oil Stadium, here’s a look back at what we saw, learned and heard on Day 4 of the Combine.
Official 40-yard dash times for both wide receivers have been filed and Abilene Christian’s Edmond Gates and Fort Valley State’s Ricardo Lockette clocked in as the groups’ best at 4.37. That type of speed impacts draft stock for two guys coming out of smaller programs, but 40 speed doesn’t always matter.
NFL Network’s Mike Mayock released his latest rankings of top five prospects per position, with Boise State WR Titus Young making one of the biggest leaps. Young is listed third, behind Georgia’s A.J. Green and Alabama’s Julio Jones.
