Last Tuesday, I crunched some numbers on which NCAA men’s tournament coaches exceeded expectations the most since the tourney expanded to 64 teams in 1985, based on their teams’ seeds at the start of the tournament. Perhaps not surprisingly, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo ruled all, with his Spartans winning 14.6 more games than would be expected based on the way they were seeded. And after Izzo won two more games over the weekend to secure the Spartans’ seventh Final Four bid under his watch, we thought we’d update the numbers1With a slight tweak to the SRS adjustment that forces the sum of each tournament’s field-wide expected wins to equal 63. to reflect the latest results.Izzo is still No. 1 of course, with 16.2 wins above expectation now (after adding in his two wins over the weekend, plus Michigan State’s expected future wins according to the FiveThirtyEight tournament predictions), while the coach he beat in the East Regional final, Rick Pitino, ranks second since ’85.Two of Izzo’s fellow Final Four coaches also rank among the top 10. John Calipari of Kentucky (whom the Spartans could face for the national championship in a week) places third. And Mike Krzyzewski, whose Duke Blue Devils will play Michigan State on Saturday, ranks 10th. Wisconsin’s Bo Ryan may seem like the odd man out, but Ryan’s teams have still exceeded expectations — though only by 2.7 wins over his career, which ranks 31st since 1985.

The Court of Handball has reached a decision on the protest filed by St. Petersburg HC following the Men’s EHF Cup 2017/18 Qualification Round 2 (2nd leg) match between St. Petersburg HC (RUS) and FH Hafnarfjordur (ISL) which took place on Sunday 15 October 2017. After both teams played exactly the same result (32:27) in both legs, extra time took place instead of the penalty shoot-out contrary to Article 4.2, Chapter II of the 2017/18 EHF Cup Regulations.
By Michelle Hennessy Image: Department of Foreign Affairs 17,146 Views Tuesday 29 Nov 2016, 9:30 PM Row breaks out over delay in garda pay for Joe Biden visit Garda sources say payments were dealt with “on an ad-hoc basis in different regions”. Nov 29th 2016, 9:30 PM A ROW HAS broken out between garda representatives and management over payments members of the force were due to receive for working overtime in Co Mayo during the visit of US Vice President Joe Biden in June.Gardaí claim management has attempted to pay some officers less than others for the same work during the trip, and that a commitment given by a very senior officer in the days before the visit was reneged on.Biden visited his ancestral home near Ballina on 22 June and additional gardaí from the Western region were rostered on to cover the event. However, just four days before his planned arrival in Mayo, management decided to call in extra resources from other garda divisions to ensure full policing cover.GRA representative for Cavan/Monaghan, James Morrisroe, told TheJournal.ie that a senior officer informed him ahead of Biden’s Mayo visit that the members called in last-minute would be paid for any shifts worked, plus what is known within the force as ‘a tour on either side’.This essentially allows for travel time on both the 21 and 23 June, and for being on standby the day before the visit. In this case, members understood they would be paid, in total, for 30 hours of work.The senior garda also confirmed to the GRA that members from the Western region, who had been drafted in at an earlier stage, would be paid a mileage allowance for the use of their own cars, which would leave them with higher payments than those called in last-minute.Though he said he was unhappy that members from his division were “being treated differently to those from the Western region”, he accepted the assurance that they would be paid for a full 30 hours.However, when members from his division – and others who had been asked to work at short notice – tried to claim their overtime, they were told they were not entitled to payment for a ‘tour on either side’.The row has raged on for weeks, and has involved the finance department in garda headquarters, which also refused to honour the original commitment given by the senior officer.“It’s simply not good enough to get assurances at very short notice from senior management and then for these assurances to be reneged upon after the event,” Morrisroe said. Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Image: Department of Foreign Affairs 24 Comments Share31 Tweet Email The members completed this duty in good faith at very short notice and great inconvenience to themselves and indeed were complemented by none other than the US ambassador to Ireland, Mr Kevin O’Malley for their professionalism and diligence.“I wonder how the ambassador would feel if he knew that assurances given by senior management in relation to the payment of members of An Garda Síochána for policing the event are now being reneged on,” he added.With a visit to Ireland by Pope Francis planned in 2018, Morrisroe questioned, “How many will volunteer for that? Because my members say they won’t be doing that again.”Another GRA representative Ray Wims, whose Sligo/Leitrim members were also affected by the controversy, commented that some employees of the State “seem to be more equal than others”.“It was just dealt with on an ad-hoc basis in different regions.”Some of his members also worked in Donegal for the royal visit, again at short notice. It took 14 weeks for them to receive payment for this overtime.Many of those affected have given up the fight, accepting a lower payment than the one originally agreed upon. However a small number are determined to get what they believe they are owed and are now considering seeking legal advice.Aidan Whelan, who represents gardaí in the Wicklow division, said his members are “at their wits’ end, it’s getting so close to Christmas”.It’s around €1,000 they are waiting on. That’s double or triple some members’ weekly take-home pay and they gave up all their rest days that week to perform this duty, working 16 hours on the day of the visit.He said many members would have decided not to go at all if they knew they would not be “properly remunerated”.“And it would have been an embarrassment on the State to have Joe Biden coming and for us not to have enough police to police the event.”Garda management declined to comment on the row.

PORTLAND — A judge has reunited an Oregon family despite state concerns that the parents are intellectually incapable of caring for their children.The Oregonian/OregonLive reports that Deschutes County Judge Bethany Flint determined there wasn’t enough evidence to show Amy Fabbrini and Eric Ziegler couldn’t safely parent.Thursday’s decision about the couple’s 4-year-old son came three weeks after Flint ordered the Redmond couple’s 10-month-old son returned to them.Both boys have spent most of their lives in foster care. No abuse had been alleged, but Fabbrini’s family raised concerns to the Oregon Department of Human Services about the couple’s parenting abilities.Fabbrini’s IQ has tested at 72, Ziegler’s at 66. The average IQ falls between 90 and 110.Both have taken parenting, nutrition and CPR classes in attempts to prove their fitness.

The dual curved edges are now standard on the higher-end Galaxy phones, and while I love the way they help immerse me in the world on the screen, the design also introduces a couple of problems. As bezels shrink and screens become truly edge-to-edge, the usable screen stretches all the way to the curve. I’ve had problems with phones like the Galaxy S10 Plus registering my finger when I tap the edge to place the cursor.I also frequently use Samsung’s edge panel software, a menu of shortcuts you can access from any screen. On curve-screen phones, that tab rests right on the screen bend, which makes it tricky to access with a swipe. While the precision of the Note’s S Pen stylus might help, I find that I use my fingers at least half the time — hopefully Samsung has found a happy medium between the radius of the screen curve and how far the active display extends.This area can be hard to swipe to with your finger. Angela Lang/CNET Give us an in-screen fingerprint reader that works every timeI was pumped to try out the Galaxy S10 Plus’ in-screen fingerprint reader. So futuristic. So convenient to unlock the phone when it’s lying on a desk, without having to pick it up to get to the rear-mounted sensor. My enthusiasm didn’t last long.The Galaxy S10 Plus’ in-screen fingerprint reader just doesn’t work well. Even after enrolling my primary thumb twice to increase my odds of unlocking the phone on the first try, it routinely takes two, three, or even four attempts to actually unlock the Galaxy S10 Plus. I often wind up just typing in my 6-digit code in exasperation.Multiple software updates from Samsung haven’t helped, and the recommendation to delete all the prints and re-enroll them (for the third time) isn’t a satisfying or practical solution.I want to love in-screen fingerprint readers so much. Angela Lang/CNET Better yet, give us face unlockGoogle has already announced that the Pixel 4 will have secure face unlock like the iPhone X family of phones. That’s to say, it’ll use a dot projector to map your face. This has been a long time coming, but Samsung could have potentially gotten there first.The Galaxy S10 lineup dropped the iris scanner that would have been secure enough for mobile payments. Samsung introduced that feature with the Galaxy Note 7, but pulling it in 2019 will mean its phones will fall behind the Pixel 4 when that phone launches — Pixels usually arrive in October. Camera, camera, cameraWhen photos are the currency of your day, your phone had better have an industry-first camera. The Galaxy S10 Plus takes great shots. I get compliments all the time, even for images that don’t apply filters. But good as they are, Samsung is no longer at the top of the game for photos or video.Huawei’s P30 Pro and Google’s Pixel 3 take far better low light shots, using standalone modes that take a little longer, but bring out tremendous clarity and brightness, without blowing out the shot. Huawei’s P30 Pro takes exceptional low light pictures and photos with its optical zoom lens. Angela Lang/CNET And while the Galaxy S10 Plus has three lenses that make it easy to zoom in close or take a wide-angle photo, the P30 Pro and Oppo Reno with 10x zoom both get much closer from further away, with impressively crisp details. Samsung is rumored to be working on a 5x optical zoom of its own, but it’s unlikely we’ll see it in the Note 10.The current rumors point to a main camera, telephoto lens and ultrawide angle lens on the Note 10 (just like the Galaxy S10 Plus), with a time-of-flight sensor (ToF) for the even-larger Note Plus. The ToF sensor could assist with portrait video as on the Galaxy S10 5G.Most important to me is to see the quality of low-light shots improve, whether through a standalone app or in the phone’s native camera itself. The Note 9’s stylus got Bluetooth capability. What will the Note 10 bring? Sarah Tew/CNET Make the stylus relevant againI like the S Pen stylus, the digital pen that gives the Note line its name. I mostly enjoy using it to take notes (it gives the typing fingers a break) and to navigate the phone’s interface without smearing it up with finger grease. This year however, it’d be nice for Samsung to figure out a use case that people really care about. The S Pen is great for writing, taking precise screen shots and doodling, but I’m going to go out on a limb and assume that most people aren’t drawing detailed images with precise shading. The Note 9 added Bluetooth capability, which lets you use the S Pen to take photos from afar, as a remote camera trigger. That’s nice, but not entirely necessary. The current rumors suggest that the S Pen will gain more features that will allow you to use it for gesture navigation, a bit like the Pixel 4 features that Google just announced.We’ve been burned by gesture navigation before. Years ago, Samsung even used a version that let you advance photos and songs by passing your hand across the screen. I wasn’t a fan then, but times have changed, and perhaps this future — if it emerges — has too.Samsung declined to comment.We’ll be live on the ground in New York covering the Galaxy Note launch. Stick with us for live impressions of the Galaxy Note 10. reading • Galaxy Note 10: Samsung’s last chance to impress us this year Best Buy $999 Share your voice See It Review • Galaxy S10 Plus braces for Galaxy Note 10 impact See it What the Note 10 Plus will reportedly look like. WinFuture The Galaxy Note 10 has its work cut out for it. Samsung phones have had a rough year. There have been a lot of them, but most have failed to make a meaningful splash (here’s proof that Galaxy S10 phones aren’t selling) and the one phone that did is now delayed. That leaves the Note 10 (and rumored Note 10 Plus) as Samsung’s last shot to blow us all away before rival brands ratchet up the competition. Don’t get me wrong — the Galaxy S10 Plus and Galaxy S10 are great phones, but two things held them back from getting our Editors’ Choice award. The in-screen fingerprint reader has significant accuracy problems, which makes it annoying to use over the hundreds of times you unlock a phone in a week. And the camera tech falls behind Google and Huawei (more on both below.) Meanwhile, the Galaxy S10 5G is far too expensive at $1,300, 5G coverage is extremely limited and the chipset inside is already outdated. The Galaxy Fold’s screen meltdown is a major black eye to Samsung, and a source of deep embarrassment.But Samsung has another chance to attract buyers. Samsung often holds back its very best components and software rollout for the Note release. This model is typically the largest and most advanced of the year’s Galaxy phones. (In fact, the Galaxy Note is the reason your phone today is so huge.) Positioned as a device for power users, the Galaxy Note is also a bid against Apple’s forthcoming iPhones as we head into the hypercompetitive holiday crush. But impressing me — and more importantly, prospective buyers — is about more than battery size and storage capacity. I already know that the Galaxy Note 10 is going to have all the top-tier specs, from mega-battery to massive storage. To me, the Galaxy Note’s real success will be defined by the details. Can Samsung catch up with competitors like Huawei and Google on camera prowess? Are there those elusive, but all-important intangibles that make a phone a pleasure to use every day? When you’re playing at the very top level as Samsung does, small differences, for example, between an incredible low light photo and a merely good one, could change a buyer’s mind. Here’s what the Note 10 needs to have to be great.Update the look, alreadyThe Galaxy phone design is getting stale. Samsung likes to move around the camera placement to help differentiate each year’s models, but the same curved sides we see on nearly every Galaxy phone, and that ultrareflective glossy backing, feel tired.A refresh is long past due. For example, Huawei, Oppo, Vivo and OnePlus (the last three brands are connected by the same umbrella organization, BBK Electronics) have all trotted out exceptionally eye-catching designs with unctuous gradients and 3D chevron patterns. At long last, leaked images show that Samsung could embrace a similar look. The Galaxy Note 10 is also rumored to come in pink.

COPY LINKAD Loading … Close Google CEO Sundar Pichai spoke about the ongoing World CupJustin Sullivan/Getty ImagesThe World Cup fever is not restricted to ordinary cricket fans living in the competing nations. It has claimed many high-profile victims who are living in countries unconcerned with the event. CEO of internet giant Sundar Pichai has also given vent to the passionate cricket fan within him that has survived his long stay in USA, and jumped into the fray of making prediction about the ongoing event in England.The 46-year old self-confessed cricket fan, unsurprisingly, chose India as one of the finalists in his prediction and gave England, the hosts, the other spot. His analysis is not very different from most other fans who consider the home side and the men in blue to be the two toughest teams in the tournament.India have started the World Cuplwith a bang, winning their first two matches – one against South Africa and the other against Australia – while the English team suffered a setback when they lost to Pakistan in their second contest before bouncing back with a morale-boosting, dominant victory over Bangladesh.In Washington for a special event, the India Ideas Summit organised by UBISC, Pichai was asked a question by another prominent figure in the business world, of Indian extraction, Nisha Desai Biswal. The latter wanted to know which two teams, the Google CEO fancies seeing in the final to be played at Lord’s on July 14. ICC World Cup 2019 – Team India Squad His response was a measured one and didn’t fail to notice the other important players in the event who have a chance. “It (World Cup final) should be (played between) England and India. But, you know, Australia and New Zealand, these are all very, very good teams,” was the diplomatic answer proffered by the chief of Internet’s most famous search engine-running company.Talking about his love for the game and how it has remained undiminished despite a prolonged stay in the USA, he gave a long replay, detailing the various factors that keep him loyal to the sport. “When I first came here, I tried to kind of adapt to baseball. I have to say it was a bit challenging. In my first game, I was proud because I hit the ball on the back. It’s a really good shot in cricket. I was like, well look, what I did. But people didn’t appreciate it. In cricket when you run, you always take your bat with you. So I also ran between base with my bat as well. So eventually, I realised baseball was a bit difficult. I can adjust on many things, but I’m going to stick to cricket. There is a cricket World Cup going on. It’s a wonderful tournament… rooting for India to do well. But there’s a lot at stake here,” he concluded by saying. .

Like rivers that cascade fearlessly through landscapes that belong to different countries, like winds that blow incessantly over barbed wires, birds fly and nestle boundlessly. Borders have been built through water-bodies, fields and even houses by humans, and they are for humans. Goutam Ghose’s National Award winning Best Bengali Film Shankhachil is a poignant tale that portrays the plight of a family in crisis. Muntasir Badal Choudhury is a reputed teacher in a village close to the border in Bangladesh. He lives with his wife Laila, and their world revolves around their daughter Rupsha who is the apple of their eyes. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’He often stands on the riverbank wrapping his arm around his beloved daughter, narrating to her how unstoppable the flow of the river is. Their life is peaceful until one day they realise the border isn’t just a mere geographical reminder of the partition. The story starts rolling when they come to Kolkata for their ailing daughter’s treatment, and takes a sordid turn with the miseries the couple faces. Shankhachil, a species of kite, is symbolic in the film. The name metaphorically exhibits the freedom of a bird that flies across borders, no nationality to bind it to one land. Only if humans could be kites, their wings spread against the azure sky, strengthening them to soar high above the border wires to distant lands they don’t need to know the names of! Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe film releases simultaneously in India and Bangladesh on Poila Boisakh, the first day of Bengali New Year on April 14. Winning the Best Bengali Film accolade at the 63rd National Awards, a fortnight before the release, would help the film to do better at the box office. The producers, cast and crew are from both the nations, and that’s what strengthens the essence of the film. Shankhachil has been co-produced by Prosenjit Chatterjee and Mou Roychowdhury, and two producers from Bangladesh are Habibur Rahman Khan and Faridur Reja Sagar. Shankhachil is Ghose’s third Indo-Bangladesh venture.

Music comprises of songs of the greatest poets of all times – Rabindranath Tagore, Jibanananda Das, Mukunda Das, Kazi Nazrul Islam and Rajanikanta Sen. Talented singers of the Bengali film industry and the folk-singers of Gorbahanga have lent their voices to infuse life into the lyrics. The music has been carefully chosen, and is bound to boundlessly engulf the audience in nostalgia. Prosenjit ChatterjeeAfter ruling the Bengali film industry for over three decades, superstar Prosenjit Chatterjee has now settled for experimental films and likes to reinvent himself as an actor with every failure. Prosenjit has acted in more than 300 Bengali feature films as the lead for the past 30 years. As Chairman and Managing Director of nideas, he has successfully produced a couple of superhit mega serials in Bengali channels. Shankhachil produced by him has bagged the National Award for Best Bengali Film this year.Mou RoychowdhuryMou Roychowdhury is undoubtedly a new age ardent film producer who believes in aesthetic and meaningful films that would cut an edge in the arena of movie industry. Mou Roychowdhury’s production hallmark has always been the depiction of real life characters through the form of healthy entertainment.

One person’s trash is another person’s archaeological treasure. That’s long been the case, but it’s taken in a new direction by the recent analysis of an Egyptian stripy sock that was found in what was at the time a rubbish dump in Antinooupolis in Roman-era Egypt. British Museum scientists developed a special imaging to help them discover how Egyptians used dyes on a child’s sock, radiocarbon dated to about 300 A.D. Not wanting to destroy the sock with invasive scanning, they “utilized multispectral imaging, which only needs to scan the surface of artifacts to test for pigments.”The researchers believe the sock was made for the left foot of a child, showing separation between the big toe and four other toes. It used different colors of wool yarn.Photo by Plos OneMany Egyptian socks found have a similar style: made of wool, bright color, with a section between the first two digits in order to wear with sandals.According to the Smithsonian, the sock was “Fished out of a landfill during the 1913-1914 excavation of the Egyptian city of Antinooupolis led by English papyrologist John de Monins Johnson on behalf the Egypt Exploration Fund.”No one analyzed the sock until recently.Socks have existed since the Stone Age, but the ancient Egyptians are thought to be responsible for the first knitted socks.Photo by Plos OneThe recovered child’s sock was described in the journal PLOS One: “Each toe is made separately from dark green wool (10 rows). The two toes are then joined and worked in bands of the following colours: orange (4 rows), purple (4 rows), bluish-green (4 rows), dark red (6 rows), green (2 rows).”“A welt across the instep marks where the loops are worked in the round. The top edge is continuous and curls over; a loose thread of red wool forms part of a tie or tassel at the center front.”The sock was one of four ancient textiles examined, each selected from the British Museum “for their historical/archaeological importance.” Besides the stripy sock were fragments of textiles from Wadi Sarga. These objects are all held at the museum’s Department of Ancient Egypt and Sudan.The earliest known surviving pair of socks, created by naalbinding. Dating from 300 AD to 500 AD, these were excavated from Oxyrhynchus on the Nile in Egypt. The split toes were designed for use with sandals.

Photo by David Jackson CC BY-SA 2.0 ukDr. Joanne Dyer, a scientist in the museum’s department of scientific research who developed the approach, told The Guardian: “It was exciting to find that the different coloured stripes found on the child’s sock were created using a combination of just three natural dyes.”The imaging process is a cheaper, less time-consuming, and less destructive way of studying ancient textiles, she explained in the interview. “Previously, you would have to take a small piece of the material, from different areas.And this sock is from 300 AD. It’s tiny, it’s fragile, and you would have to physically destroy part of this object. Whereas with both the [multispectral] imaging, and other techniques, you have a very good preliminary indication of what these could be.”12th century cotton sock, found in Egypt.The 3rd century AD was a time of tumultuous change in Egypt. Roman influence had peaked.Ongoing economic change was seen in the growth of agriculture and the increasing concentration of wealth and culture in cities, not only Alexandria but also Antinoopolis in the Nile valley.Christianity was spreading, in an interesting form. “Christian hermits in the Egyptian desert began a new style of communal living, later known as monasticism,” according to the Met Museum.Read another story from us: Mt Vesuvius Explosion in 79 AD: Exploding Skulls and Boiling Blood“The earliest monastic communities are made up of hermits who spend most of their time in solitude. Communities of monks who live and work together are formed early in the 4th century. Pachomius writes the first rules for monastic life in about 321 A.D.”Whether the first monks wore stripy socks, though, is unrecorded.

September 29, 2011 443 Views in Data, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing Mortgage rates again smashed records Thursday by falling to new lows as investors continued to flee Europe, buying up safer U.S. Treasury debt, keeping interest rates low, and setting up all-time highs for housing affordability, according to “”Freddie Mac””:http://www.freddiemac.com/. Finance Web site “”Bankrate.com””:http://www.bankrate.com/ differed by posting slight upticks for the benchmark 30- and 15-year fixed-rate mortgages.[IMAGE]The disagreement between the two rate-trackers crests on separate weekly surveys. Freddie found rock-bottom rates by drawing data from a bevy of lenders for the “”Primary Mortgage Market Survey””:http://www.freddiemac.com/pmms/, while Bankrate.com culled information from the nation’s top 10 banks and thrifts for its own survey.According to the GSE, rates for the 30-year loan collapsed to 4.01 percent, averaging 0.7 points, a steady slope downward from last week, which recorded 4.09 percent ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô still below 4.32 percent from the same time last year. Bankrate.com contrasted the breathtaking plunge by duly noting a rise in interest rates for the 30-year loan to 4.30 percent, averaging 0.37 discount and origination points.For the 15-year fixed-rate mortgage, Freddie denoted a 3.28-percent drop, with an average 0.7 points, still below 3.29 percent ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô still down from 3.75 percent seen for the same loan at the same time last year. [COLUMN_BREAK]The finance Web site found the 15-year rising to 3.47 percent, with the 30-year jumbo following not far behind at 4.87 percent.Adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) hovered for Freddie at about the same level seen last week, with 5-year Treasury-indexed ARMs unchanging at an average 3.02 percent from last week and the 1-year inching up to 2.83 percent this week from 2.82 percent last week. Bankrate.com found rates for the 5-year ARMs scaling up to 3.13 percent, with those for the 7-year hitting 3.33 percent.New lows for mortgage rates track decisions by the Federal Reserve to move forward with a short-term Treasury buy-up. “”Fixed mortgage rates fell to all-time record lows this week following the Federal Reserve’s announcement of its Maturity Extension Program and additional purchases of mortgage-backed securities,”” Frank Nothaft, VP and chief economist with Freddie, said in a “”statement””:http://freddiemac.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=12329&item=66434. “”Interest rates for ARMs, however, were nearly unchanged as the Federal Reserve plans to sell $400 billion in short-term Treasury securities, which serve as benchmarks for many ARMs,”” he added.In a separate “”statement””:http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=61502&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=1611279&highlight=, Bankrate.com told a different story, saying, “”After falling in each of the past eight weeks and setting new record lows for 5 consecutive weeks, mortgage rates were higher this week. Optimism that Europe can avoid a full-blown financial meltdown gave markets a boost, and that resulted in mortgage rates moving up.””The finance Web site added a caveat: “”But with the backdrop of a weak U.S. economy, slower growth around the globe, and the Federal Reserve reinvesting in mortgage-backed bonds, mortgage rates are destined to stay low in the months ahead.”” Freddie: Plunging Mortgage Rates Smash New Records Adjustable-Rate Mortgage Agents & Brokers Bankrate Federal Reserve First-Time Homebuyers Fixed-Rate Mortgage Freddie Mac Housing Affordability Investors Lenders & Servicers Mortgage Rates Processing Service Providers 2011-09-29 Ryan Schuette Share
Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Quite a few NFL mock drafts across the web have picked the Arizona Cardinals to shore up their offensive line by taking Alabama center Ryan Kelly in the first round of the 2016 draft, and ESPN’s Todd McShay is no different.In McShay’s three-round ‘Grade A’ mock draft, the approach is a bit different.McShay isn’t projecting the real results in this exercise but acting as a team’s general manager, pick-by-pick. And he doesn’t veer away from thinking the Cardinals would benefit by adding to their offensive line by picking Kelly. Top Stories Comments Share North Carolina State quarterback Jacoby Brissett (12) looks to pass while under pressure from Syracuse’s John Raymon (50) during the first half of the Wolfpack’s game against Syracuse at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh, N.C., Saturday, Nov. 21, 2015. The more interesting tidbit in McShay’s mock comes in the third round, when he has Arizona selecting North Carolina State quarterback Jacoby Brissett with the 92nd overall choice. Kelly would give them another building-block piece up front to protect 36-year-old QB Carson Palmer. Brissett, meanwhile, has the tools and work ethic to develop into a good backup QB in the NFL. Given time to work under Palmer and learn from quarterback guru Bruce Arians, there’s a chance Brissett could eventually emerge as an adequate starter.In his senior season with the Wolfpack, Brissett completed 60 percent of his passes and threw 20 touchdowns to six interceptions.According to NFL.com’s draft profile of Brissett, the quarterback has a strong arm and the athleticism to be a running threat. He developed bad habits from taking so much heat playing for NC State the last two seasons and still has to develop a better understanding of the position.Brissett would give the Cardinals a project who would receive tutoring by Carson Palmer.Last week, McShay’s fellow ESPN draft expert, Mel Kiper Jr., also saw the 6-foot-4, 311 pound Kelly as a solid choice considering Arizona’s needs but also an easy pick as a best-available prospect at the 29th draft slot.
