More mocking

A few more mock drafts have been released at, including one from Bucky Brooks. This time around, he has Ryan Mathews going to the Texans, (just like our mock feauturing Bart Enis and Lance Zierlein's mock, amongst others) and that's a change from his previous one in which Houston took Texas safety Earl Thomas.

Over the last few days, we've put up Draft Vignettes that were done by the NFL Network. They feature some of the players from the Senior Bowl and Combine who are trying to get drafted, and so far we've put up vignettes about Idaho lineman Mike Iupati and Virginia Tech offensive lineman Ed Wang, to name a few.

Today it's Notre Dame center Eric Olsen, (pictured below) and his story is a unique one. His father was a New York firefighter and his mother a nurse, and both were obviously very involved in helping out after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

The vignettes aren't necessarily about the best players in the draft, but more so about the interesting personal stories that some of these hopefuls have.


Notre Dame center Eric Olsen (55) hopes his name gets called in April at the NFL Draft.
