NFL Draft history: Big Ten stunners & surprises

Talent evaluation is a dicey proposition. Even with all of the resources that NFL teams have to learn about college players—the NFL Combine, interviews, on-campus workouts, an army of scouts, reels of video—teams still can mess up a pick or stumble into a pleasant surprise. The disappointments become glaring when they happen in the first round, the one round of picks where you would think teams could get correct. And years later, the nice surprises almost jump out off the draft board when you see how a college player went on to exceed expectations in the NFL. Here’s a look

NFL Draft: Where could Big Ten prospects land?

As dominant as both the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos were last season, no team in the NFL is perfect. Every organization has a need somewhere, and that is where the NFL Draft comes into play.

College sports could step into future on Thursday

On Thursday, the NCAA Board of Directors is expected to OK a new model of how its organization is run.

A big anticipated change: The five power conferences are expected to be given autonomy from other leagues. [ MORE: BTN/BTN2Go announces 2014 prime-time football schedule ] What’s it mean?

Dienhart: My top 10 Big Ten NFL draft prospects

We are inching closer to the NFL draft. And the Big Ten can only hope the 2014 draft is more fruitful than the 2013 draft. The Big Ten had just one first-round pick in 2013—and it didn’t come until No. 31 overall, when the Cowboys tabbed Wisconsin center Travis Frederick. And there were just four second-round selections: Purdue DT Kawann Short; Michigan State RB Le’Veon Bell; Ohio State’s Johnathan Hankins; Wisconsin RB Montee Ball. In all, the Big Ten produced only 22 draft picks, its lowest total since 1994, when it had 21 (and 11 teams, not 12). The prospects

Michigan refers to Michigan State as 'State' on schedule

Every Big Ten football fan knows that Michigan-Ohio State is one of the most well-respected rivalries in college sports. Well, in recent years, the in-state Michigan-Michigan State rivalry has been making a move up the ranks. There’s the “Little Brother” jab, of course, and the Wolverines have started to refer to the Spartans as “State,” and not “Michigan State,” on their in-house schedule. So, it’s “Ohio” and “State,” both in respective school colors, for Michigan’s two biggest Big Ten rivals.
