Can we draw any conclusions on this day of head fakes, powerful fiction and riddles from Pete Carroll which would get the better of Batman and Robin:
-- The Houston Chronicle's Lance Zeirlein treeted last night that sources (that's plural) have him feeling confident the Texans will pick RB Ryan Matthews with the 20th pick.
-- The National Football Post's Wes Bunting has a new piece on risers and fallers, bases on late reports which pushes USC OT Charles Brown into the mid 1st round. Who might take him in the 15-20 range? I'm thinking the 49ers, or perhaps the Giants, if their top linebacker or defense end options are gone. If he's rising, i can't see him getting beyond the Packers at 23. They need a tackle and he fits their player profile.
-- Who said the NFL is the no-fun league? Seahawks honcho Pete Carroll has been giving out song titles as hints on the team's draft targets. It's led to a thread devoted to deciphering the clues. Among the suspects are Taylor Mays and Jahvid Best. Take a look.
The draft is just over 25 hours away. Anybody meeting in Austin? Contact me in the thread.
