    The hat-and-hug routine with the NFL commissioner that has become a rite of passage for many college football stars on draft night is not for everybody. ''I know that the draft is really a great event and a great thing to go to,'' said University of Pittsburgh offensive tackle T.J.

  • Running backs not facing demise, but still devalued in draft (The Associated Press)
    The experience, potential and skills of Georgia's Todd Gurley and Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon ought to entice a couple of teams to end the unprecedented two-year absence of running backs from the first round. Elite running backs haven't stopped being developed by college programs, as evidenced by the depth of this class that could produce about a dozen picks by the end of the third round. So why doesn't this position measure up anymore to some of the others when NFL teams rank their prospects? Maybe they didn't feel the running backs the last couple of years were first-round talent.

The most famous image from that day was Rodgers impatiently sitting in the green room until the Green Bay Packers took him with the 24th pick. And the most enduring story from that draft is that 23 different times teams passed on a future Hall-of-Fame quarterback. The team that most famously passed on Rodgers was the San Francisco 49ers. They took quarterback Alex Smith first overall. Smith hasn't been bad, but he hasn't been a multiple MVP or Super Bowl champion like Rodgers either. So many teams have regrets about passing Rodg…

However, this year the Vikings have something extra with their pick, the eleventh in the first round, to potentially entice teams to move up to their spot.Under the current Collective Bargaining Agreement, players selected in the first round receive four-year contracts, with an option for the team to add a fifth year at their discretion.
