Brash? Yeah, So What?

One of my buddies is a Virginia Tech alum and last week he mentioned that CB Jimmy Williams had already ordered a $350,000 Lamborghini in anticipation of being a top 15 pick in the draft. At the time I didn't believe him but apparently it's true. The good news is the car is on the way. The bad news is that Williams wasn't drafted until 37th. Last year Derrick Johnson was the 15th pick and he signed a contract worth roughly $10 million in guaranteed money.

TMQ: Messing Up Your Daggone Top 10

In his latest, Easterbrook takes a look back at the weekend that was. Maybe it's just me, but the fact that he found ESPN's coverage "light years better" than the NFL Network's is a little troubling. I do agree that ESPN had much "better visual variety" -- showing which teams were on the clock and in the hole, for example -- but to say ESPN had, "... more personality, more insight" is hard to take seriously when Michael Irvin has a seat at the table. Well, at least the insight part.

Vick Will Get Look from Dolphins

Marcus Vick didn't get drafted and has yet to sign a free agent contract, but he will workout at the Dolphins rookie mini-camp this weekend. According to the story, "the invitation comes with no strings attached and no promises of employment." If Vick isn't signed he may end up in the CFL.

Schwarzenegger Wants Two Teams in L.A.

From the AP: "After meeting with a group of NFL owners, Schwarzenegger said he was there to make sure 'we're getting not only one NFL team to the Los Angeles area, Southern California, but to actually get two teams. That's why I came. Why limit it?'" Why stop at two? An NFL team for every neighborhood!

Spring Drills to Be Limited for Steelers' No. 1 Pick

I'm all for guys staying in school -- except for Matt Leinart -- but this seems kinda weird. Santonio Holmes is a junior, so it's not like he's taking classes to graduate this semester. Still, the NFL and NCAA have an agreement "that limits a rookie's participation in the spring until his college class graduates." Good for Holmes for finishing out the semester, but I wonder if, under the agreement, he can just drop out of school and report to his new job in time for the "voluntary" coaching sessions.

Giants Sign Jai Lewis

Any predictions on what position Lewis will play? Aside from Marcus Pollard and Antonio Gates, is there anyone else in the NFL who didn't play college football?
