One of the advantages of running your own NFL website is that you get to bring attention to your favorite players and nobody can stop you. So I hope you will all indulge me as I point out this article about linebacker Zak DeOssie, the first Brown University player ever invited to the NFL combine (and probably the first one ever drafted before the seventh round). Like Bobby Carpenter, he has Parcells family genes -- and since scouts think he fits best as a 3-4 OLB, don't be surprised to see him drafted by the Patriots, Browns, or Jets.
