Sometimes the board falls your way. Jamal Adams is one of the few culture-changing players in this draft, and that's exactly what the Jets need on defense.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Leonard Fournette can handle 20-plus carries a game for the Jaguars. Downhill power at 230-240 pounds with 4.5 speed. That's a nightmare for defensive backs filling the hole. Fournette is going to drop his pads on contact and move the sticks.

New LSU coach Wade 'wise beyond his years'

Richmond Times-Dispatch VCU beat writer, Mike Szvetitz, joined Matt Moscona to recap Will Wade's tenure at VCU and what makes him a strong head coaching choice for LSU.

Andy Katz ESPN Senior Writer 

Trend is brewing now with major coaching hires: younger or coaches with less than five years of head coaching experience. Not saying it's right or wrong but it is the trend: LSU, Washington, NC State, Illinois. Outliers are Counzo Martin to Missouri and Brian Gregory to South Florida, so far. Will be interesting to see how Cal, Oklahoma State and UMass handle. Can't see Indiana going in this direction.
