Colston Playing Mentor to Meachem

With all the off-season examples of jerkitude and jackassery monopolizing the NFL news, I found this story about second-year New Orleans receiver Marques Colston and his mentorship of rookie Robert Meachem to be a real breath of fresh air.

Raiders Looking at Mike Mayock?

According to Jerry McDonald of InsideBayArea.com, the Oakland Raiders are preparing for the "inevitable replacement" of current GM Mike Lombardi by looking at NFL Network draft guru Mike Mayock as a possible personnel executive. McDonald also mentions NFL.com columnist Pat Kirwan as a option. Personally, I hope Mayock stays right where he is, but that's a selfish interest. He was the pointman of the NFL Network's superlative draft coverage this year, and he's become, in my opinion, the best talking head on the subject.

MMQB: Not Worth the Big Bucks

Peter King wonders if this year's first-round draft class is all it's cracked up to be, doesn't understand why people go all crazy and nutty over this draft and schedule stuff (answer: because discussing the new personal conduct policy isn't going to tide us over until training camp), discloses a way in which Pacman Jones could actually play this year, and goes all "Sopranos" on New Jersey's governor. Note: The best part of King's column may actually be a Paul Zimmerman quote.
