Last week's NFL draft chatter felt like a formulaic horror movie with multiple sequels: When Scouts Attack.
"Rare is the player who can escape the National Football League's version of the Great Inquisition without being nitpicked to death," Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel writes. "Trent Richardson, the irrepressible running back from Alabama, is the exception. The NFL people don't just like Richardson. They almost worship the ground upon which he walks."
"There's one running back," one personnel director said. "All the rest are complementary backs."
There probably were some negative things said about those complementary backs, but let's ignore them for now. It's nice to focus on the positive on this rainy Monday morning, just a few blocks away from Radio City Music Hall, where Richardson will give Roger Goodell a man hug three nights from now.
