1. How Chris Conley fares, especially because of trade, is key to success of Chiefs' draft

By Sam Mellinger - Kansas City Star

"The pick that could make the Chiefs' draft isn't the aggressive cornerback or the nasty lineman. That is not to say they can't turn into great players.

Marcus Peters and Mitch Morse each embody so much of what the men in charge of the Chiefs want from those positions. Peters is strong, particularly at the line of scrimmage, and specializes in the kind of disruptive press coverage the Chiefs emphasize. Morse is versatile and athletic, at his best when he can use his feet and smash tacklers in space."    READ MORE…

3. Robert Griffin III has run out of excuses

By Jason Reid - ESPN

"Let's be clear about what the Washington Redskins accomplished in last week's NFL draft. By addressing the offensive line, general manager Scot McCloughan looked toward the future and also put Robert Griffin III in the best position to succeed this coming season. The rest is up to Griffin.

The message was clear: The Redskins plan to build a foundation the right way while surrounding Griffin with enough talent to help McCloughan determine whether the quarterback should be part of the franchise's future. That's called good leadership."    READ MORE…

4. Tom Brady may want a mulligan

By Jackie MacMullan - ESPN

"What if we all had a choice for one "do-over"?

I wonder what Tom Brady would pick.

Initial thoughts after reading a section of the Wells report that stated it is probable Patriots personnel deliberately deflated game balls.

There are no winners in the long-awaited resolution of Deflategate, but the biggest loser is clearly Brady, the face of the New England Patriots franchise."    READ MORE…

5. With La'el Collins addition, Cowboys have three first-rounders for price of one

By Todd Archer - ESPN

"Jerry Jones was named the NFL's Executive of the Year in 2014 following the Dallas Cowboys' surprising 12-4 regular-season finish, NFC East title and playoff victory.

Jones might be the front-runner to repeat as winner of the award in 2015.

The Cowboys had only one first-round pick in last week's NFL draft, but they ended up with three first-round talents now that they have added offensive lineman La'el Collins as an undrafted free agent."    READ MORE…
