by A.J. Coltrane

From A story about Seahawks’ first-round draft pick and pass-rush specialist Bruce Irvin.

6'-3", 248 lbs and he runs a 4.46 second 40-yard dash. What's not to like??

“I thought he did a very good job,” McCarthy said.

McCarthy was in Norman, Okla., […]

By Blaidd Drwg

All of the mock drafts I have seen seem to be pretty high on Jimmy Clausen, the Notre Dame QB, who if you believe the hype, will be the next Joe Montana. I keep hearing about his poise, maturity and ability to deal with pressure – all of which lead a perennially […]
