Thoughts on a Sunday...

A lot has been made of Tyreke Evans rookie season, where he averaged 20+ ppg, 5+ rpg, an 5+ apg. He joined Oscar Robertson, LeBron James, and Michael Jordan as the only players to accomplish this in their rookie season. Congrats to Tyreke, but this hardly means he had a top 4 rookie season. Wilt Chamberlain had a decent rookie season himself - 37.6 ppg – 27.0 rpg – 2.3 apg – God knows how many blocks...

How good has J-Hey’s start been? Entering the weekend, he is currently 28th in all of baseball in OPS. He is joined on the list by fellow Braves farm-hands Jeff Francoeur (2nd), Kelly Johnson (4th), Brian McCann (11th), and Martin Prado (12th).

Looks like most Mock Drafts have the Falcons taking Brandon Graham (DE) from Michigan. This pick is growing on me after seeing his numbers from 2009 where he led the nation in tackles for loss (26) and recorded 10 sacks. He was also the MVP of the Senior Bowl and looks the part (6'1 263)...

The Donovan McNabb to the Skins trade has certainly made things interesting in the NFC East. The Skins are certainly a player if they grab Russell Okung to finish off the OL in the draft. My money is on Jason Campbell to Pittsburgh after the Big Ben suspension is handed down. Washington also needs a RB in Round 2…
