2013 NFL Draft Spotlight - Day 4: Eric Fisher from The Mothership
There appears to be a three-way race for which left tackle will be the first off the draft boards in April.
Central Michigan's Eric Fisher is neck and neck with the other two tackles, Lane Johnson and Luke Joeckel (according to several draft analysts).
Not widely recruited out of high school, Fisher used the lack of scholarship offers as motivation to help the Chippewas offense average nearly 400 yards per game, including 6.2 yards per play, (second best in the MAC).
If you believe everything you see on TV, he was the Kansas City Chiefs No. 1 draft pick.
On Thursday the Chiefs will make the next rookie sensation - and star of NFL Network's Super Bowl XLVII advertisement - Leon Sandcastle available to all Kansas City media outlets.
The Chiefs, who hold the draft's No. 1 pick, will also bring former West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith in for a workout, according to the report.
Milliner will also meet with the Cleveland Browns, according to a report from Cleveland.com. The Browns hold the sixth pick and are in the market for someone like Milliner, who is widely considered to be the best available cornerback.
Arm-Strength Questions Still Dog Matt Barkley After Pro Day from USA Today
Quarterback Matt Barkley kept his arm under wraps at the NFL scouting combine in February, saying his injured shoulder would be "perfect" for Southern California's pro day.
That day arrived Wednesday, and Barkley was solid but definitely imperfect, completing 56 of 62 passes in front of scouts from all 32 NFL teams. Of concern: Barkley's misses were mostly on long balls -- though two were drops -- and he benefited from some spectacular catches by USC teammate Robert Woods.

Pro Days: Barkley Gets Passing Grade, But Others Steal The Show from CBS Sports
While the hype centered around the "skill position" players Wednesday, the big winner may have been safety, T.J. McDonald, who drew praise from Kansas City Chiefs' scout and defensive backs' coach Drae Harris, who, along with Pittsburgh Steelers' defensive backs coach Carnell Lake, put USC's cornerbacks and safety through extended drills.
"[McDonald] is an explosive athlete who is quickly able to take what we were asking him to do and apply it to the field. He's so explosive out of his cuts and covers such ground."

NBA Down The Stretch: Western Conference from SportsBlog.com
With the NBA eastern conference showing about as much depth as the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback options last season, it has left the entire NBA looking at the finish to the west. It's set to be an intriguing final to the season, with teams not only fighting to make the playoffs, but also to claim a home field advantage. Here are 3 things that i noticed regarding the west as the regular season is beginning to come to a close.
If the Jets find a way to keep Darrelle Revis, they can field a respectable defense with the addition of two edge rushers at outside linebacker. Unfortunately, a Revis trade appears to be a matter of "when," not "if." The run defense also took a hit with the loss of Mike DeVito to the Kansas City Chiefs.
KC Wolf Visits Otterville School from The Sedalia Democrat

Pro Sports Can Help End Rape from The Nation
Yes, rape culture and violence against women exists in every cultural sphere: the armed forces, music, advertising and a political world where people actually debate the differences between "rape" and "legitimate rape," But sports bears a very specific responsibility to take this struggle on. No other institution reaches more men and no other institution plays a greater role in teaching boys how to define their own manhood and masculinity. Often this definition involves equating weakness with femininity, femininity with softness and softness with not being a "real man." There's no crying in baseball. Instead, there's stress, ulcers, divorce, heart disease and death.
