Chargers villain Fabiani deserves credit - Kevin Acee (UT$)
As I wrote at the beginning of last week, when the Chargers were just beginning to send salvos that by Thursday had turned into earth-shaking bombs, Fabiani might just come to be seen as a genius. The way the week played out only made that seem more plausible. An evil genius, perhaps. But if you are one day sitting in a new stadium, your team having forsaken "the greatest city in America" to remain in America’s Finest City, you won’t care.

Conversion Program: OT T.J. Clemmings - Eric Stoner
He lacked patience and trust in his kick step, causing him to rush out and either get his shoulders turned or get beat back inside after over-setting.

2015 Top Free Agents: Cornerbacks - Kevin Connaghan
After experiencing a rocky rookie season in 2008, Flowers went four straight seasons as a Top 8 cover corner in our rankings, and was our second ranked overall corner in 2010.

Flowers found himself on a one year deal in San Diego, and rebounded well with a +7.1 coverage grade.

2015 Combine: Scouting the Defensive Line - Ricky Henne & Hayley Elwood
When I began to really delve into this year’s crop of prospects in early January, I quickly noticed many respected voices around the NFL raving about the defensive line talent available.  In particular, they believe this year class boasts a lot of skilled edge rushers that will most likely transition into a 3-4 NFL OLB from a 4-3 college DE.

2015 Combine: Scouting the Running Backs - Ricky Henne & Hayley Elwood
Many claim the running back position has been devalued in recent years, but the 2015 class is full of talented players vying to be taken in the first round.  Two of the perceived top three backs in the draft are out of the Big Ten: Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon and Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah.  Abdullah ran a 4.60 40-yard dash while Gordon ran a 4.52.
