Not really much to report on this Sunday, a link on the Draft, along with stuff on losses by the U of A Wildcats and the Coyotes, possible lineup changes for the Suns, Derrick Williams possibly going into the NBA Draft and the recovery of Deantre Lewis from being shot in the buttocks.

2011 NFL Mock Draft: 5. Arizona Cardinals: Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M | Bleacher Report
Miller is a lock to end up in Arizona unless there's a team picking ahead of the Cardinals with serious interest in him. He's the best linebacker in this draft and has Clay Matthews written all over him. There is a caveat, however. The Cardinals really need a quarterback and the assumption was that they'd go out and sign a veteran like Donovan McNabb or trade for a guy like Kevin Kolb. But they can't do either of those things unless there's a CBA. So do they play the cards and hope an agreement is reached, or do they take Newton?

A few notes on the choices NFL teams hold in the 2011 draft:

Arizona Wildcats eliminated by UConn Huskies in NCAA Tournament
Derrick Williams and his Arizona teammates dunked their way to another big second-half run. This time, it wasn't enough. In a matchup of streaky shooting teams, the Wildcats couldn't stay hot long enough to beat Connecticut, losing 65-63 in the West Regional final on Saturday.

Phoenix Coyotes still can't figure out San Jose Sharks, lose 4-1
If there is any consolation for the Phoenix Coyotes, it might be the feeling that this can't go on forever. The Coyotes, playing without three injured forwards, again failed to figure out the puzzle known as the Sharks.

ASU's Deantre Lewis recovering after California shooting
At the third practice of Arizona State spring football, Deantre Lewis stood off to the side, watching the action unfold from afar. While nearly everyone else dressed in pads for the first time, Lewis wore just his No. 25 maroon jersey and shorts.

Phoenix Suns weighing starting lineup changes
The Suns can't change how this season began with the wrong make-up and it appears too late to change an ending with no playoffs for the second time in three years. But coach Alvin Gentry is open to changing how the final 11 games start.

Signs say Arizona Wildcats star Derrick Williams will go to NBA, but he's not saying
Will he or won't he? Why wouldn't he? Signs point to yes that Arizona forward Derrick Williams will declare himself eligible for the NBA draft.
