04/25 (Pre-Draft) Quickie

It's the eve of the NFL Draft. With Luck and RG3 locked in to the top two picks, my three most intriguing storylines:

(1) What do the Vikings do at No. 3?
(2) Do the Dolphins reach for QB Ryan Tannehill at No. 8?
(3) Who takes a risk on uber-talented CB Janoris Jenkins?

Otherwise, I fully expect the Draft to dominate tomorrow, as everything NFL-related tends to dominate. (As for the league's attempts to keep draft picks off Twitter before the commissioner announces them at the podium: Good luck with that. Information wants to be free.)

More draft coverage at Quickish. Check it out!


*Metta World Peace suspended 7 games: Most folks seem to think this was appropriate. Seems right.

*Soccer: Chelsea pulls off a Champions League stunner, playing 10-v-11 against Barca at Camp Nou and not only winning in aggregate, but playing Barca to a standstill in the game itself.

*NHL: So excited for Caps-Bruins Game 7 tonight. And even if I'm not a fan of either team, tomorrow's Devils-Panthers Game 7 is must-see, too. (As is Rangers-Senators Game 7.)

*MLB Hero of the Night: Yu Darvish, with 8+ IP and 0 ER against the Yankees, with 10 Ks and only 2 BB. A signature game for the highly touted rookie.

*NBA: Tankmania! The Warriors out-tanking the Hornets means that the Wizards don't have to tank the final two games in order to maintain their hold on the No. 2 Lottery spot. Success!

*ICYMI, don't miss Lee Jenkins' SI cover story on LeBron.
