-The draft “guru” who trashed Cam Newton has done the same thing to Geno Smith. I guess we can start getting the bronze together for Geno’s bust in Canton.  [The Big Lead]

-Eddie Lacy keeps changing the date of his workouts for NFL scouts. They can always pop in the tape of that national championship game. Months later, it’s still funny to watch Notre Dame get stomped. [SB Nation]

-The Niners announced a Jim Harbaugh clothing line as a April Fools Joke. In related news, Jim Harbaugh is still completely insane. [49ers]

-Greg Cosell takes umbrage with those who say that running backs don’t matter anymore. Fine, but anyone who plays fantasy knows you can’t find many who can hold up an entire season. [Shutdown Corner]
