2. The Star's NFL first-round draft projection

By Terez Paylor - The Kansas City Star

"1 Tampa Bay QB Marcus Mariota, 6-4, 219, Oregon

The Josh McCown experiment was a disaster, and Mike Glennon was not drafted by this current regime.

By Justin Hussong - Pro Football Spot

"To say that the Tennessee Titans' quarterback situation is up in the air would be as big of an understatement as saying 2-14 isn't a very good record.

After a season like that, with your team leader throwing for 1,412 yards and 8 touchdowns, you are going to have to ask some questions. In fact, the Titans have only had the same quarterback lead the team in passing yards for two consecutive seasons one time in the last 12 years."    READ MORE…

5. Tom Brady wins 3rd Super Bowl MVP


"As a kid, years before he became a pretty good quarterback in his own right, Tom Brady idolized Joe Montana.
