    ADDED TO THE BOARD: 2020

    Xavion Alford - S - Pearland (TX) Shadow Creek: Alford is a 6'1", 186 lb. prospect with offers from Arizona, LSU, Nebraska, and Oregon, among others. He's a 3-star, the #21 safety, and #373 overall.

    Peny Boone - RB - Detroit (MI) King: Boone is a 6'2", 225 lb. prospect with offers from Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan State, and Purdue, among others. He's a 4-star, the #29 running back, and #360 overall. Boone is the younger brother of the late Zurlon Tipton, a Central Michigan running back who went on to play for the Indianapolis Colts before dying from a gunshot wound. Boone is a thick running back with pretty nifty feet; he seems to play faster than his reported 4.81 forty time.

    Jay Brunelle - WR - Worcester (MA) St. John's: Brunelle is a 6'2", 195 lb. prospect with offers from Boston College and UMass, among others.

    A website called Super Tailgate contacted me about sharing their website, which is a neat idea. They put together a tailgate cookbook (who doesn't like food?) and a tailgating guide for a bunch of stadiums, including Crisler Arena.

    Here's Mel Kiper, Jr's mock draft 1.0, which has Ohio State's Nick Bosa going #1 to the Arizona Cardinals (LINK). It would take some guts to draft a guy who missed his previous year of college football.

    Football Study Hall talks about why Utah's Kyle Whittingham and Texas A&M's Jimbo Fisher are special teams masters (LINK).
