Every time I put out one of my mock drafts, readers tell me they think things would play out differently (chances are we'll both end up being wrong). Well, now you get a chance to play GM in my first-ever reader NFL mock draft. Here's how it works. I'll post a daily poll where you can vote to decide what the team that's on the clock should do with its pick. To keep it simple, I'll give you five options for each pick. If you think I missed somebody, let me know in the comments section.

As a subscriber, I always enjoy your articles about saving energy, and I have a few comments about the article "Programs help Marylanders save on electric bills," June 25. First of all, I agree with the PSC to not make me pay for the smart meter just to tell me how much I use and for them to eliminate meter readers. If they want to automate my bill then they should pay for the new meters. I am very aware and efficient when it comes to giving BGE any more money than I have to. I have done everything possible to cut that amount down.

Armed robbers grabbed a man's electronic reader in Severn and fired a shot into the ground when he tried to take it back, then struck him with their car as they sped off, Anne Arundel County police said. Police said the man told them around 4 p.m. Sunday that he was reading on his Kindle when two men approached him from behind. One demanded the reader, shoved him to the ground and took the reader, and the second man pointed a gun at him when he tried to take it back, and fired into the ground, police said.

Editor's note: Each week, InsideMdSports.com provides this blog with a Maryland recruiting feature that previously appeared as premium content on its site. There have been times when D.J. Reader thought he might be close to making a college decision, but it seems the highly sought lineman from Greensboro, N.C., is going to go the distance. “I think it's probably going to go until Signing Day,” said Reader, a 6-foot-4, 320-pound senior at Grimsley High.

Letter to The Aegis | March 7, 2013
Editor: In The Aegis Feb. 27, you did an excellent job showcasing Harford County Alumnae Chapter Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. as well as the National Chapter. The color used highlighted that special touch to the article. Congratulations on reaching a perfect balance with the lighting on our dark skin! There was a time when photos taken of dark skinned individuals were unrecognizable due to no or very little flash used and no compensation made when the photos were printed in the newspaper.

I kept reading the Howard County Times' review of Chesapeake Shakespeare Company's production of "Taming of the Shrew" waiting for the punch line. Just like the production, which I saw with my family on June 23, I waited patiently through all the overacting and slapstick for the moment when they would tell us how silly Shakespeare's morality play about the inferiority of women was. It never happened. Given Chesapeake's modern and funny interpretations of Shakespeare, I looked forward to bringing my daughters to this play.

Your letters are the lifeblood of this column. It's time for the readers of this column to have the last word ."Your column about those 'accommodating' people who keep the rest of us hopping, trying to guess what they really want from us, cracked me up because I saw my submissive, indecisive, oh-so-accommodating, oh-so-powerful mother in every sentence," wrote a Dallas wife and mother."

It's time for equal time -- time for the readers of this column to have the last word.From Louisville, Ky., a letter came this month that began:"Your recent article about leaving children home alone disturbed me a great deal."Isn't it bad enough that so many children are home alone all summer? Isn't it bad enough that so many children are home alone at night because their parents have business meetings, dinners, bridge games, bowling or whatever?"Now you come along and encourage parents to trust their instincts in determining their child's ability to remain home alone for hours every day. Don't we have enough problems with children today without encouraging more parents to leave their children alone?

It's time for equal time -- time for readers of this column to have the last word -- and this month you wrote to me about the ways our childhoods can affect our adult relationships, the trials of being "imperfect" working parents, sacrificing one's personal life for a career, and perfectionism.After a column about the ways our childhoods can affect our interactions with people in our workplaces, a 46-year-old marketing specialist wrote: "I read your article just after pitching what can only be described as a 6-year-old's temper tantrum."

The Day Eddie Met the Author By Louise Borden Editor's note: A third-grader gets writing tips from a professional. Tuesday was going to be a great day for Eddie and his class. It was the day a real author was coming to Riverside Elementary School. Eddie had been waiting, waiting, waiting ... The whole school had been waiting. Especially Eddie's teacher, Mrs. Morrow. She loved real authors. She loved how real authors made the words flow, and how the words sounded just right, and went with pictures in their own way. Mrs. Morrow said she couldn't live without books and the wonderful stories in them.
