    Word on the street is that Cecil is asking for a $300,000 signing bonus this time around.

    They needed to free up money to pay the assistant coaches?

    Another Vince Young in the league, this time with a broke dad to take along for the ride.

    Damn, he must be projected pretty high, because if he doesn't go high, I hope he is willing to take a paycut.

    He's projected in the top 5 for QB's. Ranked around #3 pending workouts. It's him, Gabbert, Mallet, Dalton, and Locker. I think their initial ranking have it: Gabbert, Mallet, Newton, Locker, Dalton. All expected to be gone in first round or at least by mid-second. I think the top 3, however they shake out, will be gone by mid-first round.

    Still might be the first time in a while a QB doesn't go in the top 5, with the Cardinals expected to make a run at Kolb, McNabb, or Vince Young. Top 5 projected by most to be some combination of DaQuan Bowers, Nick Fairley, Patrick Peterson, AJ Green, and Robert Quinn. 1st round expected to be heavily dominated by defensive players.

    First time in years there isn't a can't miss left tackle prospect expected to go top 5. That actually bodes well for Barksdale. There's not a Joe Thomas or Jake Long to make him look mediocre. All of them look above average to mediocre right now. And several mocks I've seen have Barksdale going around the 3rd or 4th round and always to Baltimore. For the uninitiated, one of the most critically acclaimed cable shows of all time was the The Wire on HBO. The central character in the show was a drug dealer named Avon Barksdale, which is a real name of a former kingpin in the Baltimore drug scene. Even if Joseph doesn't pan out in the league, he'll be a sales magnet just because of his last name being on a Ravens jersey. They will draft him for jersey sales if nothing else. Hell I loved that show. I want one.

    Can't wait to watch this train wreck. You just have to wonder which team is going to throw all that money down the crapper.
