NFL.com senior analyst Pat Kirwan offered up his two-round mock draft, and one name that stood out was Nebraska CB Prince Amakamara going to the Cowboys. Interesting choice, and when you think of the Cowboys drafting a defensive back you can’t help by think of the famed Rod Hill pick in 1982.
The Saints Super Bowl championship was won because of a gutsy call — an onsides kick to start the second half of Super Bowl XLIV. Could this same bravado have ended the team’s championship run?
Rams safety Oshiomogho Atogwe, who has been nursing a shoulder injury, is active against the Saints. Another member of the secondary, CB Justin King (shoulder), has been ruled out.

Looking at the Seahawks 2010 roster, there isn’t a whole lot to like from a fantasy perspective.
A trade of Marshawn Lynch to the Seahawks would no doubt benefit his fantasy value, but the big winner would be Fred Jackson in Buffalo.
One of the more intriguing starting competitions around the league is in Seattle, where there’s a two-horse race to see who starts at running back between Julius Jones and Justin Forsett.
