Draft Watch: Receivers, TE's, and running backs

As we inch closer to the 2012 Draft, WWL NFL Analyst Mike Detiller visited with me and Bobby Hebert to talk about the top available wide receivers, tight ends, and running backs.

Mike says that the best available WR is Oklahoma State’s Justin Blackmon.  Detiller also says that Notre Dame’s Michael Floyd could be an early pick along with Baylor’s Kendall Washington.  

Mike rounded out the top-tier WR’s with LSU’s Reuben Randle and South Carolina’s Alshon Jeffery, who could both be first round picks.

Detiller then went on to break down the top tight ends in this year’s draft.  

Stanford’s Coby Fleener, UGA’s Orson Charles, Clemson’s Dwayne Allen and UL Lafayette’s LaDarius Green are the top players available at the Tight End Position.

As for the running back prospects, Mike says that Alabama’s Trent Richardson is the cream of the crop this season, along with Miami of Florida’s Lamar Miller.

Detillier also said David Wilson of Virginia Tech and Doug Martin of Boise State are names that could go early from the RB position.  Mike also gave his take on this year’s best available full backs.

To all loyal Saints fans: Keep the faith. We can get through this. Those that do evil to good men will never know the righteous inner peace of the faithful. You know how you can be called to testify before congress or a grand jury. There is no evidence against you, but if they catch you in any inadvertent false statement, they just prosecute you for that. The commissioner is interviewing all Saints' defensive players without presenting to any of them any evidence of wrongdoing. If he believes they are untruthful in any way, he can suspend them for that instead of bounties. Each player should have their meeting with the commissioner with an attorney present. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk spoke to Tim Brando on his radio and TV show on CBS sports. Brando asked Florio why the NFL was taking so long handing out player punishments. Florio responded, "There is a disconnect between what Gregg Williams said on the audio tape to what actually happened on the field". The NFL announced that if the players were suspended, it would be for conduct detrimental to the NFL and not what they did on the field of play. That means the commissioner will be handling their appeals and not a third party arbitrator. If the players had been suspended for committing offenses on the field a play, they could have had the third party hear their appeal. Now, wait a second. IF the players were playing dirty on the field of play and you do not suspend for that, it does smell fishy. The fact is, the NFL has very little on the field evidence. The commissioner is circumventing the collective bargaining agreement because he knows the players would win a normal appeal with an arbitrator.
