Eli Apple getting kinder words from teammates this year

Giants safety Landon Collins referred to cornerback Eli Apple as a cancer last season in one of many harsh comments directed at the 2016 first-round pick during a year that saw him struggle on the field and in the locker room.

Plans for a bronze bust should probably remain on hold for a while, but a good season for Apple should put a pin in any other bust talk that cropped up as a miserable 2017 season came to an end.

He ran a 4.66 40 at the combine, but had pulled up with a hamstring injury. He has run the 100 meters in 10.37 seconds for the Trojans’ track team, so his speed is not in question. He was a more decisive runner this past season, and his 19 touchdowns in 2017 showed he can close the deal.

He played two seasons for the Demon Deacons after his redshirt year and needs to add strength and improve his tackling. His kind of range and athleticism is coveted at safety.

He played at either left or right tackle, but Mississippi State’s coaching staff believed he could have played any of the five positions on the offensive front. Some NFL evaluators believe he could be a center as a pro; he played there during spring drills in 2017.

Crosby looks more comfortable in the run game than in pass protection, so he could be looking at a move to right tackle or guard. He finishes blocks with purpose and plays with rare power.

With all the specialty packages NFL defenses are using, Reid is the kind of hybrid safety who should contribute quickly, especially with his speed. He had 99 tackles this past season with five interceptions.

So you’ll probably hear some of that coming from that camp this week. 2. Three magic letters you’ll hear from Bears minicamp: R-P-O. We know new Chicago coach Matt Nagy will be implementing run-pass option concepts for quarterback Mitch Trubisky (and that’s good, since he ran some in college). I noted a couple weeks ago in the Game Plan that Minnesota will be doing it behind new coordinator John DeFilippo.

The Houston Astros have four picks on Monday

Williams added that having the game in November when the Braves’ season will be over will make transitioning the field easier.

We don’t have to make any modifications other than taking the pitcher’s mound out and home plate out, he said via the Atlanta Business Chronicle. November of 2018 is a lot easier to do that than during the season. Our vision for that day is not to just play a game. We’re going to create a festive weekend, celebrate the two schools, give back to this community again and utilize our facility to really expand beyond the game and create a great opportunity for their fans, our fans and the people of Cobb County.

MLB Network will televise the draft on Monday beginning with a preview show at 6 p.m. ET, followed by the draft itself at 7 p.m., with coverage simulcast online through MLB.com.

The Minnesota Twins lost 103 games in 2016 and own the first pick of the draft for the third time in their history and the first time since 2001 when they selected catcher Joe Mauer.

The Houston Astros have four picks on Monday, half of which came as punishment for the St. Louis Cardinals hacking into their database. Houston has its own picks in the first two rounds No. 15 and No. 53 plus two picks forfeited by the Cardinals No. 56 and No. 75 overall.

Syndergaard himself sits on a stool underneath a huge mural that says THE ORDER OF CHOLULA, and a triangle that looks like the Illuminati symbol. His long blonde hair is pulled into an impressively neat man bun, his light blue button-down is immaculately pressed, and the suede of his desert boots is spotless. His expression is that of an eighth-grader bored in the back of a math class.

A buffet of breakfast burritos, chicken and waffles, and bowls of an egg, meat, and avocado mixture sit on a side table. They’re flanked by bottles of you guessed it Cholula.
