South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel headline a record number of underclassmen entering the NFL draft heading into Wednesday nights deadline. At least 90 players who had college eligibility remaining are expected to enter the draft, shattering last years record number of 73. "Its a humongous number, so the first reaction is it makes you step back a little bit," said NFL Network draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah, a former scout with the Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles. "What Im hearing is that the agents always have to make the sales pitch to get these to come out. This year, what Ive been told is the sales pitch is that all your money right now is coming from the second contract, so you need to come out early so you can get to that second contract a year earlier ... and apparently its been pretty effective." ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. released a mock draft Wednesday in which 23 of the 32 first-round picks were early entries. Kiper had Manziel going first overall and included Clowney, UCF quarterback Blake Bortles and Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins as top-five picks. Jeremiahs list of the top 50 draft prospects includes early entries in the top three spots: Clowney at No. 1, Watkins at No. 2 and Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson at No. 3. "Its going to be a huge number of underclassmen that go high and have long careers," Jeremiah said. "And there are going to be some other guys who dont get drafted and will be in a tough spot and would have been better served to go back to school. It works both ways." ------ Heres a position-by-position breakdown of some of the early entries at each position. QUARTERBACK: Manziel, Bortles and Louisvilles Teddy Bridgewater are all projected first-round picks. Although the 6-foot-1 Manziel lacks the size of Bortles and Bridgewater, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner played tougher competition in the Southeastern Conference. Jeremiah ranks Manziel as his No. 7 overall prospect, with Bridgewater 10th and Bortles 22nd. Kipers mock draft has Bridgewater getting taken eighth. Wyomings Brett Smith isnt regarded as highly as the other three quarterbacks, but he could get chosen later in the draft. RUNNING BACK: Auburns Tre Mason boosted his stock by rushing for 663 yards against Alabama, Missouri and Florida State over his final three games. Jeremiah rates Mason 47th overall and second among running backs, behind Ohio State senior Micah Hyde. Other notable running backs to enter the draft include Arizonas KaDeem Carey, Washingtons Bishop Sankey, Oregons DeAnthony Thomas, LSUs Jeremy Hill, UCFs Storm Johnson and Florida State teammates Devonta Freeman and James Wilder Jr. WIDE RECEIVER: The impact of underclassmen on the draft is perhaps most evident at wide receiver. Kipers mock draft has seven early entry receivers going in the first round: Watkins, Texas A&Ms Mike Evans (13), Southern Californias Marqise Lee (18), Florida States Kelvin Benjamin (22), Oregon States Brandin Cooks (28), LSUs Odell Beckham Jr. (30) and Penn States Allen Robinson (32). Jeremiah has nine listed among his top 50 overall prospects. And that doesnt factor in the available tight ends. Kiper has North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron going 16th overall and Texas Techs Jace Amaro 29th. OFFENSIVE LINE: Robinson has parlayed a breakthrough season at Auburn into a likely top-10 selection in the draft. Alabamas Cyrus Kouandjio and Tennessees Antonio "Tiny" Richardson could join him in the first round. DEFENSIVE LINE: The headliner here is Clowney, who may have the most upside of any prospect regardless of position. Florida State tackle Timmy Jernigan also is a potential top-10 pick. Notre Dame teammates Louis Nix and Stephon Tuitt as well as Missouris Kony Ealy could both get taken in the first round. Florida tackle Dominique Easley was playing at an All-America level this fall before tearing his anterior cruciate ligament. LINEBACKER: Ohio States Ryan Shazier is rated as the No. 31 overall prospect by Jeremiah. Other linebackers turning pro early include Floridas Ronald Powell, Californias Khairi Fortt, Alabamas Adrian Hubbard and Connecticuts Yawin Smallwood. DEFENSIVE BACK: Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Louisville safety Calvin Pryor are both listed as first-round picks in Kipers mock draft and top-15 prospects in Jeremiahs rankings. Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby, rated 50th overall by Jeremiah, is the 25th pick in Kipers mock draft. Nike Air Max 270 Uk .

Air Max 270 Sale Uk . Sixteen teams have moved on. Sixteen teams have gone home.TSN.cas NHL Play of the Year showdown continues today with an individual effort taking on a passing play that involves nearly an entire team. The ninth match-up of the Round of 32 sees Sidney Crosby finish off a pretty sequence of passes, while Kyle Turris breaks away. For all the skill and smarts Crosby possesses, this is one highlight where he simply finds himself in the right place at the right time. Looking to expose the Washington Capitals down low on a power play, the Penguins drop four of their players below the hash marks and begin to move the disc around. The tape-to-tape action starts with Evgeni Malkin, who finds Chris Kunitz. Kunitz taps it towards the goal line for James Neal, drawing the attention of all four Capitals defenders. Unfortunately, they forgot about Sid. Neaal goes cross-crease and nearly through the legs of John Carlson to find Sid wide open for the one-knee, one-time finish.dddddddddddd Turris, though, gets to the POY showdown by going it alone. He, too, victimizes the Caps but his moves move one way: straight to the net. He barrels over the blue line freezing Mike Green, who earns a delayed penalty. He then shakes off some harassment from John Erskine before reaching for some open net with a ridiculous drag that leaves Philipp Grubauer with no chance of stopping the puck.
