NFL DRAFT: 2010 Class loaded with potential first round picks

This year’s NFL draft is scheduled for April 23 and for the first time ever, it’ll be a three-day event.

There will be several players wishing and hoping their name will be called in the first round. Only 32 will have that dubious distinction. Included in that list is Illinois WR Aurrelious Benn.

Benn was the favorite receiver of Illimois QB  Juice Williams. The numbers from his final college season would suggest he is not worthy of the first round: 38 catches, 490 yards and 2 touchdowns. Those low numbers were more of the fact that Illinois’ offensive line didn’t give it’s quarterbacks time to get the ball down the field and not that Benn unachieved.  Plus, he also played on a sore ankle which was injured early in the season. If he had played on a better team, say Ohio State, Texas, Alabama or Penn State, he would’ve caught more than 70 balls and had more than 10 scores.

Most NFL Scouts like Benn and his potential and something you can’t coach or teach, speed. They also Benn’s size (6’2, 225), and showed excellent hands in college.

Benn needs a fantastic combine to convince teams he can make an early impact in his rookie season. If  Benn accomplishes this, there are several NFL teams that need a wide receiver of his caliber in the first round: 49ers (16th), the Ravens (25th), and the Jets (29th).  A poor combine means he would drop anywhere from second round through the 3rd.

NFL NOTES

Bengals Marvin Lewis (NFL)

Compiled by staff and wire reports

* Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis says that he wants to bring back safety Roy Williams and defensive tackle Tank Johnson. Some members of the Cincinnati area media wonder why Lewis wants Williams back for 2010 considering he missed the final 12 games with a chronic forearm injury. Johnson had 29 tackles and two sacks in 13 starts for Mike Zimmer’s defense.

Meanwhile Coach Lewis is entering the final year of his contract and says he isn’t worried about being a potential lameduck coach. “I’m only thinking about 2010.”

* Tennessee Titans QB Vince Young has two more seasons and $20 million left on his contract. Not to mention  a $4.25 million roster bonus which will be due March 10. Young is looking for an extension. He regained his starting role after the Titans 0-6 start and led the team toan 8-2 finish down the stretch.

* New York Giants wide receiver Steve Smith just a few weeks ago hired CAA to handle his contract negotiations. Smith will be due $550,000 in 2010, the final year of his rookie contract. Smith caught 107 passes for 1,220 yards and seven touchdowns in 2009.

A Super Sunday Indeed !

Drew Brees Saints (NFL)

The New Orleans Saints 31-17 upset win over Indianapolis in Super Bowl XLIV fit a familiar pattern in recent games of the NFL’s jewel game. For the third straight season, the Super Bowl came down to the final minutes with the trailing team within a touchdown of the lead and in possession of the ball. And for the third consecutive year, a signature play sealed the game.

Two years ago, it was David Tyree’s “helmet catch” for the New York Giants which upset New England. Last year, Pittsburgh’s Santonio Holmes made a toe-tapping touchdown reception while surrounded by Arizona defenders. And this year, with the Colts driving to tie the game, Saints cornerback Tracy Porter raced 74 yards for the game-sealing interception-return touchdown.

The MVP, Saints QB Drew Brees tied a Super Bowl record 32 completions as he finished with 288 yards and two touchdowns without a single turnover. He completed 82.1 percent of his passes (32 of 39), the second-highest mark in a Super Bowl. Brees, who set the NFL single-season completion percentage mark (70.60) in the regular season, finished the game with 10 completions in a row.

There was another record set during the Super Bowl. viewing audience. It was simply, the most-viewed television program of all time. Super Bowl XLIV reached a total audience of 153.4 million viewers, making it the most-watched show in U.S. television history, according to Nielsen Media Research. The game topped the previous mark of 151.6 million viewers set last year (Arizona-Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XLIII). Super Bowls account for the 19 most-watched programs in history in terms of total audience. In addition, a record average of 106.5 million viewers watched Super Bowl XLIV, topping the previous mark of 106.0 million for the series-finale of M*A*S*H in 1983 and an eight percent increase over last year’s Super Bowl (98.7 million
