On September 3rd, AS reported an ‘interesting offer’ from Manchester United has arrived for Real Madrid’s Sergio Reguilón, and the proposal is ‘tempting’ for the left-back. The 23-year-old spent last season on loan at Sevilla after Zinedine Zidane decided to bet on Marcelo and Ferland Mendy.Sport now claims the Spaniard’s future is ‘still up in the air’ because the Frenchman wants to continue relying on his compatriot and Marcelo for the upcoming season.The La Liga winners, for their part, are not clear whether to send Reguilón out on loan again or sell him to raise funds in a time of economic difficulty.United’s interest gets a mention and it’s claimed the Old Trafford club are ‘willing to put €25m or €30m on the table’ for the fullback.Embed from Getty ImagesOle Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, however, ‘does not seem the most suitable team’ to sign Reguilón because of ‘bad relations’ between the two sides.There’s no explanation given for this, but it could be due to Real Madrid’s failure to sign David de Gea and Paul Pogba in the past.Sevilla also maintain an interest, and Sport state Reguilón wouldn’t mind spending another season on loan with the Europa League winners.In addition to this, Paris Saint-Germain, Napoli, Juventus and Tottenham Hotspur are also keen.Reguilón is currently on international duty with Spain and will return to Real Madrid next week, which is when we could expect to have more clarity on his future.Radio Marca spoke to the defender and asked about his future.He said, “I’m going day by day. If I’m thinking about calls and my future, I wouldn’t be able to enjoy being with the national team. Obviously Real Madrid is my home, but it’s not easy… I have all the factors in mind.” by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayHero Wars根本不可能获得这个宝藏！来证明我们错了Hero WarsUndoForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoDBS”I had S$9 left in my bank account”DBSUndoInvest With VICShe collects rental-like income every month!

Björn Nilsson: How Triggy is delivering digestible data through pre-set triggers August 28, 2020 Sportradar combats social media abuse with player protection solution August 17, 2020 Submit Share Share StumbleUpon David Lampitt, Sportradar: F1 presents betting’s most sizeable opportunity August 14, 2020 Related Articles Carsten KoerlFresh from announcing his firm’s first esports centric data and integrity partnership with ESL the world’s largest eSports network, SBC catches up with Sportradar CEO & Founder Carsten Koerl.A leading figurehead in sports and wagering data, Koerl sheds insight and opinion on the growth of esports, its potential integrity challenges and the sectors development of competitive/wagering functions.____________________________________SBC: Hi Carsten good to catch up, as a betting and data industry veteran what are your initial impressions on eSports as a sports and business entity?Carsten Koerl: I think most seasoned sports and betting industry operators would recognise that in 2015, esports is a by-word for innovation, excitement, drama, youth and the future. Across all measures, it simply cannot be ignored. From a purely sporting point of view, we can look at some key performance indicators: mid-week matches regularly garner over 100,000 viewers online and recent figures claim 205 million people worldwide watched or played esports in 2014. North America and Europe now claim 28 million esports fans and that number is growing by 21 per cent a year.Then you look at the business indicators: companies such as Coke, Nissan, and Red Bull have joined recent tournament sponsor rosters while the prize pool for The International has increased by more than 580 per cent since 2012! We have been developing our expertise and team for a while now and are delighted that we have secured our partnership with ESL and can really begin to make our presence and value known in the esports ecosystem.SBC: You touch on the ESL deal, which is a pretty comprehensive collaboration. Can you outline exactly what makes up the partnership? CK: ESL is one of the most established names and the biggest player in the market with strong relationships with the big publishers. This partnership will allow us to receive valid and reliable data on an automated and exclusive basis. We will become the provider of the full pre-match life cycle of odds, statistics and live scores, in-play odds and streaming, allowing our betting operators clients the opportunity to tap into the esports market like never before.The exclusive real-time data will be provided via API, completely scout free, and will ensure the data is received as fast as possible, as accurate as possible and free of error or interference. We will also be the exclusive provider of the fastest live streams that are at least 30 seconds faster than any other stream available to online operators. As always with Sportradar, speed and accuracy that operators can rely on characterises our offering.SBC: eSports is a fast growing market with many unique player and game intricacies, how does this impact the monitoring of competitive activity?CK: I think you raise a really fundamental point here. esports as a catch-all term is a bit of a misnomer because it bunches all the different games together.Our concern, and the concern of the people in the esports ecosystem, is that those looking to enter the market and/or service it, don’t appreciate that. Each game is separate. Each publisher is different. They are all separate sports with different gameplay mechanics, audiences, locations, rules and risks. We have taken the time to build up our internal expertise not only in ‘esports’, but in each game: Dota 2, CS:GO, League of Legends etc. That dedication and understanding of the landscape was what drew ESL to us and why they have trusted us not only to be their betting partners, but so importantly, their integrity partners across their competitions and tournaments, and across the different games those include.SBC: You have entered an integrity partnership ESL, at this early stage of partnership and industry growth how should integrity factors be defined by stakeholders?CK: ESL are truly at the vanguard of this sector. We have seen impressive figures across the industry, but ESL have their own: in the last 18 months, top team salaries have increased tenfold, while in the same timeframe, prize money purses have risen four times across their competitions. But ESL are not just about opportunity. They are also about responsibility; which is why we are delighted to be working with them. This year they were first to move on a key integrity issue: anti-doping, announcing plans to update their regulations back in July. By partnering with Sportradar, they have made a statement that they want to be the esports innovator with the most sophisticated, most engaging and more beneficial relationship with their data and the betting world. Match manipulation monitoring is at the heart of that and it should reassure all stakeholders, including betting operators, that the Fraud Detection System will be applied to all ESL’s competitions and tournaments.SBC: Sportradar has worked with a number of sporting associations and governing bodies, can cross learnings from traditional sports be passed on to a virtual play format such as eSports?CK: Yes absolutely…We already offer a full suite of betting solutions to 30 other sports and offer tailored versions of the Fraud Detection System to ten sports. So there is a great deal of overlap. We are treating esports exactly the same: we have the specialists, we understand betting and we are providing exactly the same suite of services that we would to any other, more ‘traditional’ sport. But as I mentioned above, the specificities of not only the industry at large, but also each of the games involved cannot be ignored. So all our products and services have been completely tailored to each of the game formats and competition formats. It is only with that investment of time, resources and expertise into providing bespoke solutions that are our operator clients can continue to rely on our usual reliability, accuracy and speed.SBC: In terms of integrity and player and customer protection, what advice would you give bookmakers eyeing potential eSports activityCK: I think this partnership showcases that we are the go-to betting solution provider to the betting industry. But what is truly ground-breaking with this ESL partnership is that we are engaging the revolutionary distribution concept made possible by our Managed Trading Services. Our MTS capabilities mean we will have access to each and every ticket and this is the only way to guarantee stable margins, to prevent match fixing and to offer an unmatched live betting product. Using the MTS for this purpose is new and is a clear sign that we are committed to meeting the needs of this unique sport and innovating in a way that will ensure the most reliable service to our bookmaker clients and most in-depth monitoring for stakeholder peace of mind.SBC: Finally, as the eSports market attaches wagering and further competitive elements, will this new market introduce new corporate players to the sports betting market. Will eSports blur the lines of the betting industry?CK: Unsurprisingly, esports is proving to be a real magnet for those interested in opportunities: whether profile-raising, revenue-generating etc. Like I said above: difficult to ignore. One set of interesting entrants are the fantasy sport giants. Just last month, only a day after DraftKings announced it would be offering fantasy competitions around competitive esports, rival FanDuel announced its acquisition of AlphaDraft, a site that offers fantasy contests focused on esports. That those two are joining the current incumbent Vulcun, which offer seven figure US dollar prize pools, should be seen as an indicator of growth.As for general interest, big companies are already sponsoring esports heavily, including Intel and Red Bull. Let’s be honest here. Esports offers a powerful avenue into the incredibly valuable 16-25 male demographic that corporations are so keen to get their products in front of. We fully expect more corporations and stakeholders to gravitate towards esports as they look to ride the wave of this growing phenomenon. It’s an exciting sport that we are looking forward to service and our suite of solutions will change the way bettors bet on its competitions and reassure stakeholders in equal measure.____________________Carsten Koerl – Founder & CEO Sportradar

Because of how NFL roster cuts work in 2019, with coaches having to trim their rosters from 90 players all the way down to 53 in one period, news and updates from around the league came in fast and furious before and after the 4 p.m. ET deadline on Saturday, Aug. 31.As soon as Week 4 NFL preseason games ended Thursday night, coaches were tasked with a handful of key roster decisions, but the work didn’t end there. A total of 1,184 players became available either as free agents or via the waiver system, so those coaches were paying attention to who got cut around the league.

Then the league’s owners voted to create the format still used today — one deadline to trim rosters from 90 players to 53 players upon the conclusion of the preseason.In 2019, that deadline was Saturday, Aug. 31 at 4 p.m. ET. Because all Week 4 NFL preseason games were played Thursday, Aug. 29, the majority of NFL roster cuts were expected to occur Friday, Aug. 30, but will continue to trickle out after the deadline.On Sunday, Sept. 1, the claiming period for players placed on waivers at the final roster reduction will expire at noon ET.List of final NFL roster cuts by team(Final roster cuts began upon the conclusion of all Week 4 NFL preseason games.

Some cooks like to change up the Thanksgiving meal — a sous vide turkey here, a sweet potato souffle there. But on a holiday dedicated to tradition, innovation can spark revolt.“Know your audience,” says Jack Bishop, editorial director of America’s Test Kitchen. “The people I know want a pie for dessert and they’re not really interested in going too far afield. And the turkey is the turkey, and there’s not really a lot you can do there.”This Oct. 21, 2013 photo shows a classic mashed potato recipe for the Thanksgiving holiday in Concord, N.H. (AP Photo/Matthew Mead)But if you’re the cook, making the same meal year after year can be mind-numbing. Here’s a brief guide to knowing just how classic you have to keep the classics, and how far you can push things.___TURKEY: Go classic in the prep, but modern in the method.The classic Thanksgiving turkey gets rubbed with butter and salt, and maybe a few herbs.“A lot of people expect the same meal all the time,” says Mary Risley, director of San Francisco’s Tante Marie’s Cooking School. “It’s the one meal that every ethnic group across this country eats. And maybe the Italians have ravioli before, and maybe the Chinese have dumplings before, but everybody has turkey. So don’t mess with the turkey.”But Rick Rodgers, author of more than 40 cookbooks, including “Thanksgiving 101,” says you can keep it real but still have a little fun. “Doing something as simple as cooking the turkey outdoors on your grill is a way to take something traditional into the 21st century,” he says.Bishop says once you’ve broken that mold and put the bird on the grill, you might as well play with a few flavors. “Doing a spice rub with cumin and chili powder and cinnamon, you can have some fun there,” he says. “As long as you choose a spice rub that’s not too unusual and you don’t do it two years in a row you’ll be fine.”And in the home of Erling Wu-Bower, chef de cuisine at Chicago’s Nico Osteria, Cajun-rubbed turkey is traditional. “We make this spicy Cajun lemony rub and poke holes and put whole cloves of garlic in it.”Wu-Bower cooks the bird in the oven wrapped in foil so it essentially steams, then browns it at high temperature. “You can’t touch the turkey,” he says. “This is the traditional bird.”— MASHED POTATOES: Go classic, period. If you must play, go no further than casserole.“There has to be mashed potatoes and I’m just not going to mess with that because there’s going to be a lot of people who are going to be very vocal,” Bishop says. He admits to occasionally using eggs to turn the mashed potatoes into a souffle, but nothing crazier than that. “Chives are in it,” he says. “That’s the most out-there ingredient in mashed potato casserole.”Rodgers says your approach to mashed potatoes should be even more basic than that. “Ask yourself, ‘Will it taste good with gravy on it?’” he says. “You have to make mashed potatoes that taste good with gravy.”— STUFFING: Go classic on the foundation, innovate on the add-ins.Bishop says first deal with the stuffing base: will it be white bread, cornbread, multi-grain or rice? After settling that, go for the flair.“If you want to experiment, stuffing gives you the most leeway,” he says. “You can add apples, fennel, sausage, bacon, nuts and dried fruit.”If you have a really picky audience, you might want to play it even safer. “Stuffing is a good example of where people expect the expected,” Rodgers says. To feed his jones for something new, Rodgers makes two stuffings — one nothing but white bread, celery, onion and herbs, and one with oysters or wild mushrooms.— SWEET POTATOES: Go classic on the concept, modern in the execution.Marshmallows are the classic topping for Thanksgiving sweet potatoes. But the sweetness of that dish and its festive sensibility can be captured in other ways without causing a riot, these experts say.Bishop suggests a sweet potato puree topped with a streusel of brown sugar, butter and spices. “It’s for people who love the idea of the marshmallows, but it’s more sophisticated,” he says. “Even the people who love the marshmallows seem pretty happy when they get this. It’s sweet, but it’s also crunchy.”If your guests can handle it, Bishop says go nuts and take the dish Indian with cashews and chilies. Maybe even some coconut and cilantro, or coriander and peanut butter for an African flavor.Wu-Bower takes the sweet potato experiment one step further. He suggests browning rounds of roasted sweet potato in olive oil then dousing them in butter, brown sugar, red wine vinegar and neonata, a chili-infused Calabrian fish sauce. Deep fried capers add crunch.— VEGETABLES: Do a classic green bean casserole, or go completely off the rails.“I can’t stand green bean casserole,” Bishop says. “There, I just said it. It’s a lot of work and it’s not very good.”Instead, he suggests roasting green beans with red onions and walnuts or tossing them with a maple-mustard glaze. Or simply blanche them and toss them with something crunchy, like slivered almonds or roasted pumpkin seeds.Wu-Bower offers an Italian take on Szechuan green beans, sauteing them with ground pork, garlic, onions, chilies and garum, a Roman fish sauce.Or break away from the green beans altogether. Wu-Bower suggests marinating broccoli in salt, pepper and olive oil, then grilling it and dressing it in lemon zest, raw garlic, Fresno chilies, mint and white wine vinegar. Tante Marie’s Risley suggests pulsing Brussels sprouts in the food processor and roasting them with olive oil, salt and pepper.— PIE: Stick with the classic assortment, but jazz up the ingredients if you must.“You gotta have pumpkin pie, pecan pie and apple pie,” says Wu-Bower. “I feel like half-a-pie per person is a fair amount.”Bishop suggests dressing up the pecan pie with a mixture of semi-sweet, milk and white chocolate chips. Or you can combine the pecan and the pumpkin pies by putting a praline top on a classic pumpkin base. “It feels totally out there, but it’s totally classic,” he says. “That’s a nice twist on a classic.”Apple pie can make friends with cranberries, Bishop says, with a layer of crisp apples atop a base of cranberry jam. “It’s kicking-it-up-a-notch apple pie,” he says.___Michele Kayal is an editor at https://www.americanfoodroots.com .

We attacked the course from the white tees, the course was in great nick and the greens played true. Scores were on the higher side of average.With only one division we all knew that it would be tight at the end of the day and Dave Maw got the nod for top spot from Stuart Mann on a count back decision. A further two shots behind we had zero-handicapper Pieter Zwart taking third.Allan Ray (left) with Dave Maw.Thursday, Dec. 29, Greenwood – Monthly MugA Flight (0-21)1st Dave Maw (14) net 712nd Peter Bailey (16) net 743rd Bill Steinmann (10) net 744th Pieter Zwart (0) net 75B Flight (22-36)1st Allan Ray (28) net 752nd Andrew Allan (29) net 773rd Jayson Schembri (22) net 784th Volker Buley (31) net 78Near Pins: #2 Ness, #6 Dave Maw, #12 Tom McMahon, #15 Andy Zwart.Long Putts: #9 Stuart Mann, #18 Pieter ZwartA good size group of 28 golfers headed out to Greenwood to compete for December’s Monthly Mug, which of course is a stroke event and is kindly sponsored each month by Steve Younger.The course was in pretty good shape, with a few wet patches here and there. A stiff breeze was constant throughout the 18 holes, and made club selection quite tricky.Two divisions was required and the A Grade went to the inform Dave Maw whose strong all-round game saw him net an impressive net 71 off his 14-handicap. Dave won by a 3 shot margin from both Paul Taylor and “Buffalo” Bill Steinmann, both with net 74, Paul edging out Bill by the way of a count back. Fourth place was filled by Peter Zwart with net 75.B Grade was won by Allan Ray (net 75), Andrew “Turtle” Allan, who states he is not a fan of Greenwood, may now change his mind after coming second with a net 77 and Jayson Schembri just edged out playing partner Volker Buley by way of a count back for third, both having Net 78. Volker might rue his 11 on the 16th, after a consistent round.Thus the above results saw Dave Maw win his first, but maybe not his last, Growling Swan Monthly Mug.Special mention to Nolan Wise who was very keen to talk about his 3-stroke par on one of the Par 3’s until someone quickly reminded him that we would rather talk through the 15 he had on the previous hole!

FILE – In this Aug. 11, 2017, file photo, Pittsburgh defensive back Avonte Maddox (14) participates in a pass rushing drill during an NCAA college football practice in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic, FILE)PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Avonte Maddox is always smiling. Always. The Pitt senior cornerback can’t pinpoint the origin of his relentlessly sunny good nature and he doesn’t particularly car,e either. It’s a character trait that doubled as a pretty good defense mechanism at times in 2016 as Maddox and the rest of the Panthers secondary spent far too much time chasing opponents to the end zone.“Corners have to have a short memory,” Maddox said. “If something bad goes on, it won’t last forever.”It only seemed that way at times last fall. Pitt finished an impressive 8-5 under Pat Narduzzi almost in spite of a pass defense that gave up 333 yard a game, second-worst among the 128 members of the Football Bowl Subdivision. It made for some long film sessions as head coach Pat Narduzzi, defensive coordinator Josh Conklin and secondary coach Renaldo Hill tried to pinpoint what went wrong.Yet Maddox refused to give in to negativity. Where’s the joy in that?“It definitely is hard,” Maddox said. “But being a leader on the team, when you’re down and they’re looking at you, it changes the atmosphere. They don’t want to see someone they look up to down. So I always keep a smile on my face. It’s not that I’m faking it. It’s that I know what I have to do to get better.”To get there, Maddox decided during the offseason it was time to add another level of accountability. So beginning in the spring, Maddox began keeping tabs on how many times the secondary was beaten deep during a given practice. Each time equaled 10 pushups or situps payable by the entire secondary before leaving the field. And Maddox didn’t just count full 11-on-11 scrimmages. He counted 7-on-7 drills too.Asked if that’s fair to the defense considering quarterbacks don’t face a pass rush in 7-on-7s, meaning they can take their sweet time before deciding where to go, and Maddox just laughed. Making it hard is kind of the point.“You’ve got to make it a challenge,” he said.One Maddox expects to face on a weekly basis starting in the 2017 season opener on Saturday against Youngstown State. The Penguins reached the FCS title game last fall and have plenty of experience coming back. It’ll be a warmup of sorts for what looms in mid-September when the Panthers face No. 6 Penn State and welcome No. 10 Oklahoma State in consecutive weeks.Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley threw for 332 yards against the Panthers last fall, though a late end zone interception by Ryan Lewis preserved a Pitt win. Mason Rudolph then hung up 540 yards on the Panthers the following Saturday, one of five games in which Pitt gave up at least 400 yards through the air.Yet Narduzzi didn’t panic or deviate from his plan to rely heavily on man-to-man defense. Sure he tweaked a little, but developing cornerbacks who can win one-on-one matchups became his calling card when he was the defensive coordinator at Michigan State. Narduzzi sees no reason why it can’t work at Pitt as he enters his third year.There has been progress during training camp, not just physically but mentally.“Even if a ball goes over their head, I see them come back the next play and make another play,” Narduzzi said. “And that’s going to happen for a secondary. But I feel some little different swagger out of those guys that I didn’t really feel a year ago.”Still, the Panthers will be forced to play the first three weeks without star safety Jordan Whitehead while he serves a suspension for violating team rules. Highly touted freshman Paris Ford will most likely be redshirted after getting a late start to training camp for undisclosed reasons. Maddox is the only senior in the secondary. Seven of the other eight on Pitt’s two-deep depth chart are freshmen or sophomores recruited by Narduzzi.That’s a lot of youth. That also might not be a bad thing. Narduzzi brought them in because he believes they can play the system that served Michigan State so well.“If that’s how they want us to play, that’s how we’re going to play,” sophomore corner Dane Jackson said.An improved pass rush by the defensive line would certainly help the secondary grow up a little more quickly, and Narduzzi is bullish on his front four. Yet once the ball is in the air, the secondary understands the success or failure of a play is entirely on them. That’s fine. It’s what they signed up for. Maybe last year wasn’t great. It was also last year, not this year.“It’s been tough times,” Maddox said. “But I feel like things are going to get better now.”___More AP college football: http://collegefootball.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_Top25
STEELERS LINEBACKER RYAN SHAZIER has progressed in his recovery, but has been ruled out of playing football in the 2018-19 season for the Steelers. (AP Photo)It’s that time of year, when the Super Bowl contenders bolster their roster and the non-contenders build for the future. Draft season is upon us and as usual, the Steelers will be looking to add critical pieces to a lineup that is poised to make a run at the Super Bowl.This offseason, the Steelers have signed a couple of players to fill key positions. Inside Linebacker Jon Bostic was signed away from Indianapolis and safety Morgan Burnett was swayed away from Green Bay.Burnett will have a far bigger impact than Bostic, as Burnett can play both safety positions and corner.Bostic is a nice addition to an inside linebacker corps that suffered greatly after the devastating injury to Ryan Shazier but he does not possess the skills to be the full-time answer.The Steelers will look to fill the huge void Shazier’s injury left via the draft in the first round and then they’ll look to add another talented safety to the mix in round two.There are solid inside linebackers available in this year’s class but the top ones will be gone before the Steelers pick at number 28. Some say the team will trade up to grab one of the top two guys; I don’t think they have the assets to do it and will stand pat. Either way, I think they’ll be happy with whomever they end up with.Here are the candidates and my rankings for each:Roquan Smith—Georgia: Smith is the clear number one ILB prospect. He’s fast and has the ability to go sideline to sideline. He’s a very solid run-stopper and can be a strong contributor in pass coverage as well. He’d be the ideal replacement for Shazier but he will be long gone before the Steelers ever sniff him.Leighton Vander Esch—Boise State: Vander Esch has climbed up the draft boards with a solid offseason. I rank him higher than others but he possesses all of the fundamentals you want at inside linebacker and can play vs. the run and the pass.Rashaan Evans—Alabama: Evans possesses both size and speed and is a very solid player who has done a lot for coach Nick Saban at Alabama. I believe he is a mid-to-late first round guy and the Steelers may have an opportunity to snag him at number 28.Malik Jefferson—Texas: The drop off begins with Jefferson. He’s my fourth-best prospect but there is a big difference between him and the first three guys. He’s solid against the run but he’s not a good pass coverage guy and is a second day selection.Josey Jewell—Iowa: Jewell amassed over 100 tackles last season and penetrates the backfield with power. He can be an impact player but he’s not an every-down player.I think the Steelers will end up faring well and be able to grab Evans from Alabama in the first round with their 28th pick. It’s a pick that will begin the replacement of Shazier and Evans may find himself on the field in 2018 early and often.The Steelers will also need to take a look at the class of safeties coming out this year and they may even consider one of them at pick 28 instead of the linebackers if the first three guys are gone, though I suspect they’ll grab one of the following guys in round two.Here are the top safeties based on my rankings:Minkah Fitzpatrick—Alabama: Fitzpatrick is the cream of the crop in this year’s safety class. He can cover receivers, tight ends, play corner, play at the line or drop back in deep center field. He’s a game-changing safety that, if he’s still available at pick 28, the Steelers will take. Unfortunately, I don’t see him being there.Derwin James—Florida State: James is another game-changing safety with skills. He can play man against the tight ends and may not cover center field like Fitzpatrick but is still an impact guy that would be an upgrade on most teams. He’s another guy the Steelers would take in round one but he won’t be available.Ronnie Harrison—Alabama: Harrison is a physical safety who can play on the line and stuff the run but has some issues when he needs to play man-to man. He won’t be a first-round pick but he’ll be gone by the time the Steelers draft in the second round.Terell Edmunds—Virginia Tech: This is a guy who I think the Steelers could land in the second round. He’s physical and can play vs. the run and the pass.Jessie Bates—Wake Forest: Bates is another candidate for the Steelers on day two. He’s very smart and makes good decisions on the field.The Steelers will most certainly fill these two holes in the first two rounds and I believe it will be Evans of Alabama in round one and Edmunds of Virginia Tech in round two.
