Devin Singletary runs during spring football practice at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton on March 22, 2018. (Richard Graulich / The Palm Beach Post) After only two seasons at Florida Atlantic, rising junior running back Devin Singletary (American Heritage) is arguably the greatest player in program history — and, at least to CBS Sports’ Will Brinson, the All-American could parlay that into becoming a first-round pick in next spring’s NFL Draft. In a “way too early” mock for the 2019 NFL Draft, Brinson has Singletary not only leaving school early, but being selected with the 30th overall pick by the Pittsburgh Steelers. “Piling up yards on a Lane Kiffin team will result in Singletary getting significant draft traction,” Brinson explained. “And I’m going to assume the Steelers don’t keep Le’Veon Bell after this year.” Singletary, 20, ran for 1,920 yards and an FBS-best 32 rushing … [Read more...] about Florida Atlantic’s Devin Singletary projected to be first-round pick in 2019 NFL Draft by CBS Sports

Vinnie Iyer @vinnieiyer Updated at 10:18 a.m. ET Updated at 10:18 a.m. ET Watch NFLNFL with fuboTV Quarterback is the most important individual position in the NFL, but it still has strength in numbers. Every team aspires to have a top starting QB, but it's a welcome double bonus to also have a strong backup option and an intriguing developmental project. After NFL free agency and the 2018 draft, many teams go into the minicamp and training camp stage of the offseason with big changes in their QB depth charts. The goal is striking the ideal balance in the "quarterback room" — or the best possible extension of the offensive coordinator. The team at the top of our QB room rankings just learned the immense value of always trying to find a supersub. Ranking NFL's quarterback rooms for 2018 1.

The Bruins’ season ended Sunday after a 3-1 defeat to the Lightning knocked them out of the NHL playoffs. Chris Sale had 12 strikeouts as the Red Sox beat the Rangers 6-1. On Monday, The Celtics have a chance at a second-round sweep in their Game 4 matchup against the 76ers at 6 p.m. More details emerge on the Patriots’ 2018 NFL Draft decision-making In Peter King’s Monday Morning Quarterback column, he shed some light on the Patriots’ decision-making on draft day. According to King, even if the Tennessee Titans hadn’t leaped over New England to take Rashaan Evans, the Patriots would not have taken Evans at No. 23. The Alabama linebacker looked like he could fill a need for the Patriots during the pre-draft process, but King wrote that the team was not sure if he could be a three-down linebacker. Mike Vrabel and the Titans believe he will be. ESPN’s Adam Schefter also reported Evans to the Patriots wasn’t in the cards. “On Friday … [Read more...] about Morning sports update: More details emerge on the Patriots’ 2018 NFL Draft decision-making
Baker Mayfield went from being a late first-round projection with height and character concerns, to a quarterback whose stock was rising, to a player coveted by teams in the top five of the NFL draft, to the Cleveland Browns’ No. 1 overall selection as the future of their desperate franchise.And it all happened in just a few short months.Mayfield did win the Heisman Trophy last season at Oklahoma, so it wasn’t a secret that he was talented. Still, there were, and still are, easy reasons to doubt him:At his introductory press conference in Cleveland on April 27, Mayfield and No. 4 overall pick Denzel Ward, a stud Ohio State cornerback, stood side-by-side holding up their new white, brown and orange jerseys.And they looked to be the same height.Mayfield (6-05/8) only measures slightly taller than Ward (5-10). The quarterback position is larger than life in the NFL. Often the players and personalities at the position are, too. And only rarely (Drew Brees 6-foot-0, Russell … [Read more...] about Pat Leonard: Can Mayfield take Browns to new heights after meteoric rise leading up to NFL draft?
The Pats did not draft Tom Brady's successor but they did make a ton of trades and fill a bunch of needs by Jared Dubin @jadubin5 moments ago • 8 min read As we moved closer and closer to the 2018 NFL Draft, there was increasing speculation that the New England Patriots were going to be a bit more aggressive this year than they've been in the past. In fairness, a lot of the tea leaves seemed to be pointing in that direction. The Patriots traded Brandin Cooks for a first-round pick, giving them two selections in the first round for the first time since 2012 and just the third time in the Bill Belichick era. With Tom Brady set to play his age-41 season in 2018 and the team having no logical successor to Brady after the trades of Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett, it sure seemed like the Pats were preparing to move up the board for one of the draft's top signal-callers, locking in a succession plan that could be put into place over the final few … [Read more...] about 2018 NFL Draft: Patriots, bucking expectations, treated this year just like any other
