NFL Draft: Morning Delight


The week is wrapping up, but there are still Pro Day’s and private workouts taking place. Here are some of the articles I came across this morning:

"In the ongoing quest of the Detroit Lions to find a complementary target for the passing game, they’re bringing in Maryland wide receiver Torrey Smith for an official visit today.The Lions were in the same position a year ago when they picked up Bryant Johnson and Derrick Williams to combine as a No. 3 receiver. The result? The pair combined for 21 receptions as Calvin Johnson continued to do his thing even though quarterback Matthew Stafford couldn’t remain on the field.National Football Post – Lions bring in Maryland WR Torrey Smith for a close look"

"Connecticut running back Jordan Todman is scheduled to meet and have dinner with the New England Patriots next Wednesday, according to an NFL source with knowledge of the situation.Yahoo! Sports – NFL source: Patriots to meet with Jordan Todman next week"

"As a NFL Draft analyst with a background in Education, I value the role that intelligence plays in the game of football. The ability to decipher information quickly — especially at the quarterback position — is absolutely critical to success.That said, the NFL’s version of an intelligence test — the famed Wonderlic — is the single most overrated element of the pre-draft process. (And considering the hype generated from the 40-yard dash, bench press and vertical jump, that’s quite an accomplishment.)CBS Sports: Rob Rang –  Overrated Wonderlic no true measure of NFL future"

"New Mexico CB Davon House just ran a 4.32 in the 40-yard dash today at his Pro Day, per an NFL source at the workout. Slowest time was 4.35.Twitter: Aaron Wilson of National Football Post – New Mexico State Pro DayThe Kansas City Chiefs, like all NFL teams, get 30 official private workouts in which to evaluate draft prospects.
