At times it is hard to imagine another’s struggle. The courage their life demanded. Honored to have met Bobby Mitchell many times. We can all learn from his journey.

I will really miss him. Bobby was TOTALLY a class act. He was an awesome player, Social activist, philanthropist , and OUT OF THIS WORLD man. My condolences go out to Gwen and the family!! https://t.co/xjQ4feG1Wi— Brian Mitchell (@BMitchliveNBCS) April 6, 2020
Bobby Mitchell caught a 99-yard touchdown pass from George Izzo against the Browns at Cleveland Municipal Stadium on September 15, 1963. It's tied for the longest touchdown pass in Redskins history.#HTTR #RIPBobbyMitchell pic.twitter.com/tGXIvOERLg— David Menassé (@Frekiwolf) April 6, 2020

Young has no bearing on the interior guys. drafting him doesn’t factor here. Brantley Has a small 1 year deal with no guaranteed $. That’s how they view him. a Name but with tons to prove. no I would not trade. This team has a chance to build an excellent line with strong depth.— John Keim (@john_keim) April 5, 2020
Im not sure if they will find a trade partner with an offer they like. Would not be surprised if they want him at camp https://t.co/wIhDD3Rau2— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) April 5, 2020
Have been told that the #Bengals, #Redskins and #Raiders have shown significant interest in Michigan State LB Joe Bachie. The #Lions have also had a FaceTime meeting with him.— Russell Brown (@RussNFLDraft) April 5, 2020
He’s currently preparing a Pro Day type of workout video to send to teams.
Maxx Crosby is a reminder when it comes to the draft always bet on great athletes. 10 sacks with no pass rush plan at all just pure athleticism and heart. When he gets his technique down it's going to be scary. pic.twitter.com/Oj2OZR4nci— Marc John (@TheMarcJohnNFL) April 5, 2020
He’s not slow. He is explosive. And he’s one of the best ball carriers in the entire class, not even just at WR. This couldn’t be any further off. https://t.co/buIupoTpCL— Steve (@SteveNFL_) April 5, 2020
Some good developmental OT’s in this draft other than the big 4 of Wirfs, Wills, Becton, and Andrew Thomas. Have always believed OL Coach the most valuable/important staff member on any football coaching staff. This draft going to shine a bright light on that belief.— Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) April 5, 2020
Just needs to get stronger. Feet are adequate, recovery is adequate, pop/explosiveness in run game acc at best. He needs strength but is another good developmental prospect.— Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) April 6, 2020
DeAndre Hopkins and David Johnson still haven't passed their physicals, and the clock is ticking to finalize their trade, given the involvement of 2020 draft picks https://t.co/arDNPZXMJr— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) April 5, 2020
Very few quarterbacks on earth can do this...avoid pressure, roll left, throw a dime 35 yards down the field without even resetting his feet, and have it land high and outside perfectly for his receiver...who dropped it.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) April 5, 2020
Incredible throw. Love has his issues, but this is RARE. https://t.co/2hzmzRn9Cc pic.twitter.com/JtytlLIHh6
Id guess Seattle is the front runner but every week he waits I think his value falls. https://t.co/Y0tkRAo4fS— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) April 5, 2020

Former Dolphins Vice President Mike Tannenbaum said Tua Tagovailoa is too much of a medical risk to take on the top 10. He’s actually echoing what have been hearing from other NFL teams, and the one he last worked for. pic.twitter.com/ottYx3vkql— Omar Kelly (@OmarKelly) April 2, 2020
If you are an agent and you think you have at least a high priority free agent with some traits and/or production who hasn't been written up in the NFL draft tracker, give me a heads-up in my DMs. I've already included players from the first time I requested. Just 50 spots to go— Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) April 5, 2020
The NBA and ESPN are working on televising a H-O-R-S-E competition involving several high-profile players, sources say. Players would shoot in isolation – presumably in home gyms – and match shots against competitors. Details are still being finalized.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) April 4, 2020

Dempsey's 63-yard, game-winning field goal is legendary. Here's the longest field goal made each year since 1940. The Saints great shattered the record by 7 yards. pic.twitter.com/6f5eKfEqJ7

The tiger, Nadia, was one of seven big cats showing symptoms. Only Nadia was tested (she had to be sedated).
All seven big cats are doing well. Likely contracted the virus from an asymptomatic zoo staffer. Only possibility, says Paul Calle, the zoo's chief vet.
(CLARIFYING A PREVIOUS TWEET): The novel coronavirus is a zoonotic disease but there is ZERO EVIDENCE that *domestic or zoo/captive animals* can transmit the virus to humans.— Natasha Daly (@natashaldaly) April 5, 2020
It is also unknown if big cats are uniquely susceptible to the novel coronavirus.
