Greg Cosell looks at film for the top two WR prospects in this year's draft, Justin Blackmon and Michael Floyd, and brings up some interesting points about the development of the NFL game over the last few years. Are possession receivers worth more now than they were a few years ago? Is Blackmon still an elite prospect if he doesn't have top-line vertical speed? I'll point out that our own Matt Waldman, in his Rookie Scouting Portfolio 2012, makes the same determination as Cosell: Floyd, not Blackmon, is the top wide receiver in this draft class.

After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
