*If any/all of your clients have setup private visits/workouts leading up to the draft we are creating a chart for that, as well, since it has been requested.
*If you would like to include any/all Pro Day results, updates or information, please send it to email@example.com or 504.415.9979 before 7pm eastern each day for inclusion in the next day's report.
It has been almost 35 years since an NFL team has made it back to the Super Bowl and won the game after losing in the Super Bowl the previous year... as the Dallas Cowboys lost the 1971 Super Bowl (16-13 to Baltimore) and then returned to win the Super Bowl in 1972 by defeating Miami 24-3... the last team to lose in the Super Bowl and return to the "Big Game" period was the Buffalo Bills in 1994, as they had played the previous year against Dallas, as well... also, while New England has dominated Super Bowl appearances for the AFC (FOUR) in the past ten years (1996), the NFC has seen eight different teams reach the final game with Green Bay and St. Louis each making it twice. Since the restructuring of divisions (2002), the NFC North, AFC North and AFC South have not had a representative in the Super Bowl.
There were a total of 18 running backs who gained 1,000 or more yards last season, while there was a total of 23 wide receivers and one tight end who gained 1,000 or more yards last year.
Only eight of 32 NFL teams had winning records, 5-3 or better, on the road last season, six of those eight qualified for the playoffs, as only Jacksonville (5-3) and New Orleans (5-3) failed to reach the post-season.
Eight of the Ten teams that finished among the league's top rushing offenses in 2004 qualified for the playoffs, as only Baltimore and Kansas City failed to reach the post-season... However, in contrast, the bottom ten teams in terms of rushing offense last season, include Cleveland (#23), Chicago (#25), Tampa Bay (#29), San Francisco (#30) and Miami (#31)... all of whom are picking between picks #1 overall and #5 in the first round.
Cleveland Browns traded defensive end EBENEZER EKUBAN to the Denver Broncos for running back REUBEN DROUGHNS... it gives them more DL depth, while giving the Browns a possible starting running back, who they hope to ink to a new long-term deal... it also gives the Broncos 3/4 of the Browns former starting defensive line (Ekuban, Warren and Brown), so they must be giving DL coach Andre Patterson some imput on who he wants to coach.
The signing of Courtney Brown by the Denver Broncos should now pave the way for free agent defensive end MARQUES DOUGLAS (Baltimore) to be signed over the next few weeks with Cleveland leading the pack, but several of the teams contending for Brown's services could now look Douglas' way.
