Take 2 sans typo: This is tremendous. I’m told a group of #49ers players called Kyle Shanahan today to let him know they survived until Sunday. So good.

"If it was easy to find one, everyone would be doing it. It’s obviously not easy to do.” Draft column on the QB gold rush, which is a trend. Not an anomaly. Who is up next year in the 2022 crop? sports.yahoo.com/the-5-first-ro…
Notre Dame’s nine 2021 NFL Draft picks give it 520 overall in program history, the most of any school in the history of the draft.

The Belichick-Brown man crush is a thing. They developed a strong relationship when Brown was the DC at BC. Clearly, there’s a trust there. twitter.com/philaperry/sta…

Glad to see @DanWetzel, @PeteThamel and @ByPatForde’s favorite player Milton Williams go to Philadelphia. They raved about him on the latest edition of the College Podcast. Deep dive on his scouting report. yhoo.it/3uj5ZmJ

Tonight is a reminder of how Brian Kelly has led Notre Dame into title contention. He found a distinct identity for the program, as the Irish OL has been one of the most reliable units in college football the past few years. twitter.com/PFF_College/st…

By now, you know that the Big 12 didn’t have any players picked in the first round of the NFL draft Thursday night. Did you also know that Alabama has had 21 first-round picks in the last five drafts … while the Big 12 has had 10? yhoo.it/334rADq

A great look at who is left by @Eric_Edholm. Some big-time college stars in here. UGA’s Ojari, ND’s Owusu-Koramoah, Bama’s Landon Dickerson and LSU’s Terrace Marshall. twitter.com/Eric_Edholm/st…
One name we could hear tonight is La Tech's Milton Williams. He's an intriguing defensive tackle prospect in a year where that position is vacant. He had 10 TFLs last year. He's 6-4, 278 with a lot of upside. No DTs went in Round 1. latechsports.com/sports/footbal…
If you want to know where the NFL draft is going, look at what happened last night. “Year” of the Quarterback? Try “Years.” @PeteThamel sports.yahoo.com/the-5-first-ro…

First time in school history @NUFBFamily has two first round picks. Newsome is also the first pure three-and-done in Pat Fitzgerald's era there. The caliber of prospects in Evanston is clearly changing. twitter.com/PeteThamel/sta…
What an incredible moment with Kwity Paye and his mother, Agnes. She escaped two civil wars in West Africa and traveled to Rhode Island as a single mother. She worked two jobs so Kwity could attend private school, get a scholarship and live out his dream. Now she can rest.

Belichick picking Saban guys is so predictable. Good for Mac Jones. Waited his turn. Hell of a story. twitter.com/petethamel/sta…
We dug into Slater when he opted out. He reunites with ⁦@CodyCejda⁩, Fitz’s longtime right-hand man at ⁦@NUFBFamily⁩. “Rashawn is power, strength and athleticism all wrapped into one.” sports.yahoo.com/northwestern-o…
Did Bill Belichick Jedi mind trick the draft so Mac Jones slides to No. 15? Starting to feel that way.

Kansas State coach Chris Klieman recruited Trey Lance to NDSU. He offered this tonight: “Trey will be a star. No red flags and is so smart and one of the best competitors I have ever been around. He makes everyone around him better. Has that IT factor.”
According to sources, Trey Lance didn’t know he was going to San Fran until the phone rang. Drama on all ends.
Here’s a ⁦@YahooSports⁩ deep dive on Trey Lance from ⁦this fall. Can’t stress enough how people rave about him as a person. He’s a 35-year old maturity wise in a 20-year old body. sports.yahoo.com/all-eyes-on-fa…
I’m shocked the 49ers picked Trey Lance. GM John Lynch was doing a deep dive on him in recent days. But that’s still stunning to the entire NFL.
The thing I’ll always remember about talking to Wilson — he grew up going to Utah games. His dad played there. Season ticket holders forever. I asked Zach about Alex Smith — he said he was too young to remember him in college. 🤦🏻‍♂twitter.com/petethamel/sta…jZ
For Jets fans, we did a deep ⁦@YahooSports⁩ profile of Zach Wilson this fall. NFL scouts then had concern over his size. “Slight” was a word I heard a few times. Story on his rise. sports.yahoo.com/byu-star-qb-za…
Bryce Lance is a WR prospect who committed to NDSU. The Bison staff is fired up about him. They see an under-recruited late bloomer, the same prep career arc as big brother. twitter.com/treylance09/st…
So the sixth and seventh rounds picks this year aren’t that valuable. Look for teams trading down to covet late-round picks in next year’s draft. Look for “height/weight/speed” prospects to go late.
One factor that a lot of NFL teams have discussed behind the scenes in this draft that’ll impact trades: There’s only about 700 players who signed with agents this year. Normally there’s 1,800 or more. Essentially, there’s a little more than one-third of the players available.
One of the most baffling hires in years. twitter.com/goodmanhoops/s…
