Go For Nine? For Who? For What? - Scott Kacsmar
First, just how likely would a successful nine-point touchdown be? In 2014 teams were 28-of-59 (47.5 percent) on two-point conversion attempts, although a more accurate stat would be 27-of-56. There were three aborted extra-point kick attempts, and one of those was actually converted for two points, with Pittsburgh holder Brad Wing throwing to Matt Spaeth for two against Baltimore in Week 9.

Five Most Important Re-signings - Sam Monson
Flowers allowed a catch every 16.6 coverage snaps when playing the slot, which was bested only by Revis. The Chargers gave Flowers a test run this past season and they were rightly impressed by what they saw. Flowers was a vital cog to bring back because they can’t yet know exactly what they have in Verrett.

EDGE Rankings and Grades for the 2015 NFL Draft - Joe Marino
Dupree is a freak athlete with an outstanding frame. He is experienced doing everything that he will be asked to do in the NFL as 4-3 defensive end or 3-4 outside linebacker. He is most impactful with his hand in the dirt rushing the passer and setting the edge. Displays explosive burst off the ball and closing quickness to the football. Kentucky had him dropping in coverage far more than I would like. That said, he is adept at doing so although it is far from a strength.

Prospect Profile: Jay Ajayi - Ricky Henne
Jay Ajayi is one of the most accomplished running backs in Boise State history.  In fact, despite playing just three seasons, he ranks in the top 10 of nine noteworthy all-time categories, including rushing touchdowns (50, second), 100-yard games (17, third) and rushing yards (3,796, fourth).
