Kevin Kolb to Buffalo, Carson Palmer to Arizona, Matt Flynn to Seattle, Ryan Fitzpatrick to Tennessee, swing your partner round and round. What I want to know is: what did Drew Stanton do in past life, set fire to London or something?

Mandatory Monday is back on Mondays and previews the Matt Barkley Pro Day with the help of some familiar faces from the world of draftnickery. Oh, and GO LA SALLE!

Due to the NCAA tournament, Mandatory Monday is a day late. But it is not a dollar short. There are Elvis Fax jokes, Hong Kong Phuey and Brazil references, plus some stat analysis at the end.

After the introductory silliness, the nitty gritty of the piece: tape impressions of six mid-to-late round guys whose names bubbled up this week at their pro days. Check out the end of the article for a chance to face me in the Play the Draft game!

A look at three teams and their different philosophies about how to get under the cap. Links at the end take you to a piece about the terrible stuff on daytime television and brief profiles of five draft prospects. Also, if you didn't read my six trillion word takedown of the nutritional supplement industry, check it out!

Need for Combine weekend wrap-up plus inevitable Academy Awards tie-in equals the Forty Awards, which recognize outstanding achievements in the field of February football distractions.

Greetings, draftniks! Day Two of the Combine featured lots of quarterback press conferences, and there are no Robert Griffin or Andrew Luck types in this draft when it comes to sounding charismatic and impressive at the podium, for whatever that's worth. Also, Jim Harbaugh is an odd dude.

Andy Benoit and I are running around Indy trying to meet with coaches and low-level front office people, rather than generally hovering around the media room. So instead of FO-only combine reports this year, we decided to just depend on the dependable Mike Tanier to do the dependable Mike Tanier thing of finding humor and one or two actual comments of interest within the dependably repetitive day-long parade of coaches and general managers refusing to give the media any details about "THE PROCESS."

Forgot to post this yesterday, due to Daddy Duty. The ages of quarterback prospects, why it matters, and 120 hours in the life of Titus Young. Also at Sports on Earth: my wide receiver Top Fives continue with the Dolphins, and the Jets should be up by Wednesday.
