New 2013 NFL Mock Draft

Lots of big changes in my newest 2013 NFL Mock Draft. Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas has disappointed, so I have ruled him out at this point as an early entry and he's off the board. I have taken all my running backs out of the first round, not because I think a player like South Carolina's Marcus Lattimore isn't talented, just no in demand compared to the other talent in the draft.

Curt's Big 32 for the 2013 NFL Draft-UPDATED

Please keep in mind, this is my list of who I like.  This has nothing to do with predicting where they will be drafted.   If I were an NFL GM, if all positions were on the board, this would be my top 32 guys. You couldn't really go wrong with any of these guys, but don't be shocked that my order doesn't fall in line with what most believe.

Obviously I reserve the right to make changes to this as the season goes on, and it is of course a fluid list.

Sunday Morning Mail Sack

I've been getting some great emails from readers about the new site and just some excellent questions and comments. So every Sunday morning I am going to reach in the Mail Sack and answer a few.

Why didn’t the Chiefs draft a quarterback in the first round?

Predicting all the Bowl Games

Let's roll through the Bowls, all 35 of them, in chronological order (maybe). I'm going to lay out who's playing in each one and then make a prediction on who'll win. Yet again I'll point out if I put money on my own predictions my kids would starve. I heartily recommend that you don't base anything financial on my predictions!

 New Mexico Bowl
 Who: BYU vs. UTEP
 Winner: BYU

 uDrove Humanitarian Bowl
 Who: Northern Illinois vs. Fresno State
 Winner: Fresno State

Week 2 Snap Judgment-College edition

First off, let me answer all the questions that have been asked of me right now.  No, I don't bet on football.  I have never and would never.  And moreso, I'd never tell anyone to bet on football based on my predictions.  I don't bet on anything.  I don't play the lottery, none of that crap.  I have always said if I had to bet football to feed my family, they would starve to death.  So, please don't complain if you take my preview and bet on games and lose.  Besides, I don't trust guys who sell you their picks.  If they were really that damn smart, they'd be billionaires from just betting the games themselves.  But now I've had time to go through and watch all the top games, and digest some of what I saw.  Here's this week's snap judgements.

Clearing up the Undrafted Free Agency Sweepstakes

Of the hundreds of guys who go undrafted each year, some of them give up the dream of playing football and opt for further education like New Hampshire's Scott Sicko (DBI wishes you the best of luck by the way Scott). Some give up on the NFL and go play elsewhere but some of the luckier ones get picked up by NFL teams as Undrafted Free Agents. Some of these guys even end up being paid more than their colleagues drafted in rounds 5 onwards. How does that happen? Well quite simply, some of these guys are in very high demand with several teams chasing their signature. Competition, as any agent will tell you, is going to get you paid more.

Sure lots of guys signed as UDFAs are nothing but camp fodder but for some they have a chance to earn a spot in the league and for some, it's as more than a Special Teams demon and backup. Take a look at this lineup:
