    Evan Neal No. 1 overall in a lot of mock drafts.

    I know it’s early, but Evan Neal has been projected to be the first overall pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Should he go first I believe he will be the first Alabama player to be drafted number one overall. Big deal? Would be a feather in the recruiting cap for sure...

    Woman wins large settlement for being born.

    Woman received a large settlement for being born with spina bifida. She says her life is hard because her mother wasn’t told of the dangers getting pregnant and she deserves better. Thought that might be an interesting discussion. Could be precedent for more people with disabilities to sue...
