Here's a look at what national media are saying about the St. Louis Rams drafting former Dunbar star Tavon Austin with the No. 8 pick in the 2013 NFL draft. ** SI.com's Don Banks says the Rams gave up a lot to get Austin, but the West Virginia wide receiver could very well be worth it . St. Louis shipped its 16th overall pick to Buffalo to get to No. 8 for Austin, also throwing the Bills a second-rounder (No. 46), a third-rounder (No. 78) and a seventh-rounder (No. 222)

MOBILE, ALA -- Michael Campanaro had already crafted a plan, convincing the defense that he intended to run another trademark intermediate route with a quick inside fake. Instead of cutting his pattern short at practice this week heading into Saturday's Senior Bowl all-star game, the Wake Forest wide receiver from River Hill dashed behind the secondary and made an over-the-shoulder touchdown catch. It was the kind of savvy, textbook play that prompted Atlanta Falcons wide receivers coach Terry Robiskie to single out the Clarksville native as an example of how to play the position to the other receivers on the North squad.

Representing Dunbar High with a maroon suit and maroon tie, Tavon Austin strolled into Radio City Music Hall around 7 p.m. Thursday night to see his lifelong dream fulfilled. At 7:34 p.m., he and 22 other top prospects were introduced to the crowd. Each towered over him. Austin then retreated to the green room, downed a bag of potato chips and watched the draft unfold, his legs shaking the whole time, with a group of family and friends, including his mother, Cathy Green, and grandmother, Louann Green.

Swiveling in the pocket as he eyed the Ravens' coverage schemes during the AFC championship game last January, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady certainly didn't lack for inviting targets downfield. Brady threw to tight end Aaron Hernandez and wide receivers Wes Welker and Brandon Lloyd. During a 28-13 loss at Gillette Stadium, he passed with 320 yards for one touchdown and two interceptions. Heading into Sunday's rematch against the Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium, however, Brady is no longer so fortunate.

On Monday, the Ravens had to try to shut down Megatron. This weekend, they must deal with Minitron. Julian Edelman might not have the athleticism and imposing stature of Calvin Johnson or an intimidating nickname, but over the past few weeks, Edelman has been one of the NFL's most productive wide receivers. Since Week 12, Edelman has been targeted 51 times by New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. He caught 37 of those passes for 414 yards and four touchdowns. Brady threw his way a whopping 19 times in last week's loss to the Miami Dolphins and Edelman had 13 catches for 139 yards and a score.

Dolphins 24, Patriots 20 STRATEGY:  The Patriots have an offense that is still in transition after losing tight ends Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski. Their talents are irreplaceable in the short term and the team is waiting for a trio of rookie wide receivers to become consistent threats. As a result, the Patriots spread the field horizontally with a quick passing game and a lot of screens so Tom Brady can get the ball to shifty wide receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola.

Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis blew up Dustin Keller in Week 1 as if the Jets tight end was another puny planet in the path of his rocket-powered raven ride through outer space. Lewis' huge hit stood the test of time, as voters on ESPN's SportsNation recently voted it as the best hit of the 2010 NFL season. Lewis' hit on Keller received more than 55 percent of the 2,754 votes. Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain's takedown of Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola was a distant second, and Bears wideout Earl Bennett laying out a punter was third.
