The 2014 NFL Draft is shaping up to be one of the deepest in recent memory. But even in the deepest of drafts, there are studs, duds, snubs and flubs. How is one to know if a draft pick is worth cheering for, or if he should be booed mercilessly?

Injuries, poor fits and simple bad luck can knock any player, no matter how great, off track. But here are four prospects whose future paths may eventually lead to Canton.

Shabazz Napier scored 22 points to lead UConn to their fourth national championship in 15 years, beating preseason favorite Kentucky 60-54 in Arlington, Texas.

Aaron Harrison's 3-pointer with six seconds left lifted Kentucky to a 74-73 victory over Wisconsin, setting up an 8-seed vs. 7-seed matchup for the national championship.

The great basketball drama produced by the urgency of a single-elimination tournament is why hardcore hoops fans watch the NCAA Tournament.

The upsets are why so many others tune in. And the challenge of filling out those brackets make it fun for all of us.

Here we are again. It’s the day after Christmas and we get to play with all of our toys. Except it’s nearly 100 days after Christmas and those toys are numbers.

More specifically, the point spread on every game for the first two rounds of the 2014 NCAA Tournament.

The NFL is about to have an openly gay player in its ranks. Missouri defensive end Michael Sam—the 2014 Southern Eastern Conference Defensive Player of the Year—is projected to be selected in the later rounds of this May's NFL Draft.
