Andrew does not seem to be in the need of a whole lot of "luck" when it comes to his game...  From "The REAL Feed":
 
Ann Killion: Luck surprises no one by putting on show at Stanford Pro Day
SI.com: NFL (22.03.2012 21:34)
Any questions? Andrew Luck did a little bit of everything at Stanford's Pro Day on Thursday. The ex-Cardinal put on a show to solidify his spot atop NFL draft boards, writes Ann Killion.

No agreement on this guy as to where he will be drafted, but he has been invited to the show in NYC... according to what is currently atop "The REAL Feed":
 
Osweiler undecided if he'll accept invite to draft
NFL.com (01.04.2012 17:41)
Brock Osweiler did wonders for his draft appeal with a strong showing at his pro day, but he remains a polarizing figure among experts. In a chat with ATL, Osweiler explained his "risky" pro day strategy.

Though technically Browns-specific, this look at the potential at running back in this year's Draft seems to best fit in here...  From "The REAL Feed":
 
NFL Draft Outlook: Running Backs
Scout.com > NFL > National Football League Team (03.04.2012 04:43)
The Browns' current running back situation, ”Montario Hardesty, Brandon Jackson and Chris Ogbonnaya,” does not appear poised to become a standout unit.

The Draft is really being "mocked" these days... Here are two from "The REAL Feed":
 
Don Banks: 2012 NFL Mock Draft 4.0
SI.com: NFL (04.04.2012 10:50)
It's simple draft logic: Don't take running backs early. But should an exception be made for ultra-talented Trent Richardson? Don Banks says yes in his latest first-round projection.

 
Vensel's NFL mock draft: Version 3.0
SunSpot.net - Sports (04.04.2012 12:00)
Wisconsin's Peter Konz may not make it to the 29th pick, given how light this year's draft is on truly elite offensive lineman. But if he does, the Ravens could pick him and try to move him from center to guard to replace Pro Bowl left guard Ben Grubbs, who signed with the New Orleans Saints. Kon...

Fodder for the Draft junkies... from "The REAL Feed":
 
Tony Pauline: Tannehill among players whose stock has risen since pro day
SI.com: NFL (06.04.2012 11:35)
The month of pro days is over, meaning draft prospects are running out of time to make an impression. So, who did well and who didn't in March? Tony Pauline breaks it down.

Undrafted, But Overlooked

Think rookie free agents can't make an impact? Tell that to James Harrison or Antonio Gates. Chris Burke goes team-by-team to identify this season's unheralded studs in waiting.
