CBS Sports - Emmitt Smith likes Boise State's Martin, Miami's Miller at RB after Richardson
Pro Football Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith boasts one of the most impressive resumes in NFL history: A three-time Super Bowl champion. Four-time NFL rushing leader with 18,355 career rushing yards. So it's safe to say he knows a thing or two about the running back position.

TonySoftli.com - Top 5 QBs and how to evaluate them
The NFL is now a pass-happy league, a throw first and run the ball second in many organizations. Having an elite quarterback at the helm is every franchise’s No.1 priority. I try to avoid the comparison game.

Sporting News - Analyzing SN's No. 39 prospect, Alabama S Mark Barron
Barron (6-1, 213, 4.56 40) is a strong and thickly built player with the long arms NFL teams love in a safety. He is an outstanding leader who takes command of the defense and makes sure the secondary is lined up correctly.

Akron Beacon Journal - Holmgren's Griffin premise better left unsaid
The Browns’ strong, credible leader is starting to sound like a whiner. During Thursday’s conference call with season ticket holders, president Mike Holmgren kept a handle on his emotions. There was none of the combativeness he showed during his "you’re either with us or you’re not" rant on Dec. 14, when he warned the media not to come to him for playoff tickets when the franchise emerges from the wilderness.
