Hey, look kids. Mike Tanier has a podcast at Sports on Earth, and I'm on it. I talk about the draft, LCF, Speed Score, SackSEER, and a little bit of a preview of Playmaker Score. Also featured: Russ Lande and poor placement of apostrophes.

The NFL announced the full 2013 schedule tonight. Here's a link and a thread for you to discuss which teams have particularly easy or hard stretches. I'm very happy that, at least at first glance, it doesn't look like the league did that crazy thing it did in 2012 where numerous division rivalries had both games scheduled within three or four weeks of each other.

Reportedly the terms are: five years, $66 million, with $31 million of that guaranteed. It will kick in after this coming season.

A short video from NFL Films about the legacy of Pat Summerall, who died yesterday of cardiac arrest. I became aware of the NFL rather late in Summerall's broadcasting career, but it's still hard for me to not compare other announcers to him.

Regular Walkthrough readers will have read variations on much of this before: a rundown of answers to every cliche of a draft question. Don't forget to stop by my Tailgater blog for the in-depth scouting reports and such.

Wheaton is my favorite wide receiver in this draft.

If you're interested, the video from this year's football analytics panel at the MIT Sloan conference is finally online. Andrea Kremer moderated; panelists were Rams COO Kevin Demoff, 49ers COO Paraag Marathe, former Patriots and Chiefs executive Scott Pioli, and -- drum roll, please -- Football Outsiders progenitor Aaron Schatz.
I was there, and I'm not saying this because he pays my bills, but Aaron was the star of the discussion. To be fair, though, he was basically the only one at liberty to offer blunt opinions. (I'd say full-throated, but he had lost his voice the day before.)
In any event, click for "Armanti Edwards, c'mon!" Stay for the DeAngelo Hall takedown.

Our annual look at the NFL draft from six years ago was more of an informal, subjective look at the class of 2007. What if we look at things more objectively? (Click to read more.)

Major criminal charges aside, factoring character into a prospect's evaluation when you're not part of an NFL team is a dangerous proposition.

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?

Lane Johnson and D.J. Fluker were selected high in the draft, but both have troubling flaws in pass protection according to Word of Muth.
