Draft season isn’t in full force just yet, but ESPN’s Todd McShay has already named a dark horse to be the No. 1 pick this year.

While on ESPN’s SportsCenter this Wednesday afternoon, McShay made an argument for Alabama offensive tackle Evan Neal going first overall to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Most mock drafts have Jacksonville taking either Aidan Hutchinson from Michigan or Kayvon Thibodeaux from Oregon. However, the Jaguars’ offensive line could use some reinforcements.

“Jacksonville desperately needs an offensive lineman,” McShay said. “Evan Neal from Alabama could fit that bill. He could step in right away. Three-year starter, he’s played at guard, both tackle positions. He’s a monster of a man.”

Even though Neal would make sense for the Jaguars in this year’s draft, McShay would understand if the front office goes with a defensive end.

“The best two players in this draft

Virginia wide receiver makes potential catch of the year against Miami

Virginia wide receiver Dontayvion Wicks may have made the catch of the year Thursday night. 

Wicks ended up with the ball in the end zone to secure what turned out to be a critical touchdown for the Cavaliers after Miami cornerback Marcus Clarke dropped a potential interception. Once the ball left Clarke’s hands, it rolled off Wicks’ back and bounced off his arm into the air.

As he finally caught sight of the ball still that was somehow still in play, Wicks swooped in with one arm for the score with just under six minutes remaining in the third quarter to extend their lead 27-14. 

Miami had a final chance for redemption, but couldn’t follow through. Hurricanes kicker Andre Borregales attempted a field goal as the clock ran out, but launched it too far left, allowing the Cavaliers to hold on for a

There is reportedly hope that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers can sign wide receiver Chris Godwin to a long-term contract extension prior to Thursday’s deadline for franchise-tagged players to sign extended deals.

Appearing on Sunday morning’s edition of SportsCenter, ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler said there are “no new developments” as it relates to Godwin signing a new deal.

Fowler noted that the hope it will get done derives from Godwin making it clear he wants to be in Tampa over the long haul and chase more championships. Fowler added that the Bucs have shown a willingness to keep the team that won last season’s Super Bowl intact as well.

Per Spotrac, Godwin signed the one-year, $15.983 million franchise tender in March to ensure he will remain with the team in 2021. According to Fowler, signing Godwin to an extension could lower his salary cap hit

On Friday night, the Los Angeles Lakers lost their second game in a row to drop down to seventh place in the Western Conference standings. On Saturday night, Steph Curry went off for 49 points to carry the Golden State Warriors past the Oklahoma City Thunder and maintain their hold on eighth place in the Western Conference standings.

Which means, that as things stand, the Lakers and Warriors are on a collision course to meet in the play-in tournament. The team that finishes seventh will play the team that finishes eighth in the first round of the play-in tournament, with the winner earning the No. 7 seed in the playoffs. 

Asked after his big outing whether the league would enjoy such a matchup later this month, Curry simply nodded his head in memeable fashion.

The answer, obviously, is yes. Though they haven’t had the best seasons, the Warriors
