Per Pittsburgh Tribune-Review beat writer Jerry DiPaola, head coach Pat Narduzzi has dismissed starting defensive tackle Jeremiah Taleni for disciplinary reasons. Taleni emerged as a starter down the stretch for the Panthers and will be a big loss up front for the team as they already have to replace the stellar production from the soon-to-be-drafted Ejuan Price. No further comments were given when the school confirmed the news so it might be a while before we find out what led to Taleni’s dismissal and whether he plays college football at all next season.article

Belichick not concerned about competition level Rivers faced at YoungstownCSNNE.comFOXBORO -- There was not much room for debate as far as this was concerned: Derek Rivers was among the most physically-impressive defensive ends in a draft class loaded at that position. That begs the question, then, how did the Patriots have the opportunity to draft Rivers at No. 83 overall in the third round?  The short answer is that he went to Youngstown State, an FCS school, and those players usually don't come off the board early. But that answer only leads to more questions, as in, how did someone with the athleticism Rivers possesses end up at Youngstown in the first place? And why did he stay? At 6-foot-4, 248 pounds Rivers was among the top defensive line performers at this year's combine.article

He can be off schedule and buy some time with his legs, so there are a lot of things that we liked about him.

Cunningham, Lamp among potential Day 2 Draft targets for GiantsSNYRalph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive Drafting a successor to Eli Manning was never really in play for the Giants on Thursday night. There were quarterbacks they liked as an option in the first round -- particularly Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes -- but they were long gone by the time they picked at 23. So they never really had a chance to find their Quarterback of the Future. Of course, that was only Day 1. The draft continues on Friday night when the Giants have two more picks to make in Rounds 2 and 3 -- and two more chances to draft the quarterback who'll take over for Manning somewhere around 2020. At this point they're looking at more developmental projects -- if any they like lastarticle

Patriots third-rounder Rivers takes winding road to FoxboroCSNNE.comFOXBORO -- There was not much room for debate as far as this was concerned: Derek Rivers was among the most physically-impressive defensive ends in a draft class loaded at that position. That begs the question, then, how did the Patriots have the opportunity to draft Rivers at No. 83 overall in the third round?  The short answer is that he went to Youngstown State, an FCS school, and those players usually don't come off the board early. But that answer only leads to more questions, as in, how did someone with the athleticism Rivers possesses end up at Youngstown in the first place? And why did he stay?

But offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Tim Drevno likes the options the Wolverines have to fill the void left by Mason Cole, who shifted to left tackle in the off-season.

NFL Draft results: Why the Giants made Davis Webb heir to Eli ManningBig Blue ViewWhat convinced the New York Giants to use the 87th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft on Davis Webb, hopefully turning him into their quarterback of the future. Let’s let Jerry Reese, Ben McAdoo and Marc Ross explain. General manager Jerry Reese “He (Webb) was very productive in that offense, like a lot of quarterbacks are. We thought that he had the best arm in the draft this year, really a gifted arm, thrower. For a tall guy, he is a good athlete. He can be off schedule and buy some time with his legs, so there are a lot of things that we liked about him. We think that he will have time – like we said earlier, Eli has however much time that he has left, two or three years left in his contract or howeverarticle

Cunningham, Lamp among potential Day 2 Draft targets for GiantsSNYRalph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive Drafting a successor to Eli Manning was never really in play for the Giants on Thursday night. There were quarterbacks they liked as an option in the first round -- particularly Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes -- but they were long gone by the time they picked at 23. So they never really had a chance to find their Quarterback of the Future. Of course, that was only Day 1. The draft continues on Friday night when the Giants have two more picks to make in Rounds 2 and 3 -- and two more chances to draft the quarterback who'll take over for Manning somewhere around 2020.

Patriots third-rounder Rivers takes winding road to FoxboroCSNNE.comFOXBORO -- There was not much room for debate as far as this was concerned: Derek Rivers was among the most physically-impressive defensive ends in a draft class loaded at that position. That begs the question, then, how did the Patriots have the opportunity to draft Rivers at No. 83 overall in the third round?  The short answer is that he went to Youngstown State, an FCS school, and those players usually don't come off the board early. But that answer only leads to more questions, as in, how did someone with the athleticism Rivers possesses end up at Youngstown in the first place? And why did he stay? At 6-foot-4, 248 pounds Rivers was among the top defensive line performers at this year's combine.article

Pitt dismisses senior defensive tackle for disciplinary reasonsNBC Sports: CollegeFootballTalkBad news in college football is typically reserved for Friday and it appears the Pitt Panthers just got a taste of some. Per Pittsburgh Tribune-Review beat writer Jerry DiPaola, head coach Pat Narduzzi has dismissed starting defensive tackle Jeremiah Taleni for disciplinary reasons. Taleni emerged as a starter down the stretch for the Panthers and will be a big loss up front for the team as they already have to replace the stellar production from the soon-to-be-drafted Ejuan Price. No further comments were given when the school confirmed the news so it might be a while before we find out what led to Taleni’s dismissal and whether he plays college football at all next season.article

Belichick not concerned about competition level Rivers faced at YoungstownCSNNE.comFOXBORO -- There was not much room for debate as far as this was concerned: Derek Rivers was among the most physically-impressive defensive ends in a draft class loaded at that position. That begs the question, then, how did the Patriots have the opportunity to draft Rivers at No. 83 overall in the third round?  The short answer is that he went to Youngstown State, an FCS school, and those players usually don't come off the board early. But that answer only leads to more questions, as in, how did someone with the athleticism Rivers possesses end up at Youngstown in the first place? And why did he stay? At 6-foot-4, 248 pounds Rivers was among the top defensive line performers at this year's combine.article

Oregon opted for a traditional look, moving away from military-inspired patterns of the past in favor of sleek black and light grey ensembles.

NFL Draft results: Why the Giants made Davis Webb heir to Eli ManningBig Blue ViewWhat convinced the New York Giants to use the 87th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft on Davis Webb, hopefully turning him into their quarterback of the future.

We thought that he had the best arm in the draft this year, really a gifted arm, thrower. For a tall guy, he is a good athlete. He can be off schedule and buy some time with his legs, so there are a lot of things that we liked about him.
