Mock Draft: Sapp projected for Pats

In the fifth installment of WEEI.com's NFL mock draft, contributor D.J. Bean has slotted Clemson defensive end/outside linebacker Ricky Sapp as the player the Patriots are projected to land with the 22nd overall pick. Bean writes of Sapp: "Nothing has changed since Sapp turned in one of the better defensive performances at the combine, yet mock drafts have slowly been pushing him down toward the second round, a classic case of reader beware. If teams were high on Sapp back then, there is no way they are lower on him now. His knee is good and he has great speed for his size. The Patriots also had a private workout with Sapp on Tuesday." The current list also has somewhat of a shakeup in the draft's top five spots. To see the entire mock draft, go to the It Is What It Is blog by clicking here.

Read more about that, plus get links to the day's top stories, videos, trivia and more, at Wednesday's Morning Mashup.

B's blow by Hurricanes

Michael Ryder and Patrice Bergeron each scored their 16th goals of the season and Mark Recchi moved into a tie for 22nd on the NHL's all-time goal scoring list with his 560th career goal as the Bruins ended their season-long seven-game road trip with a 5-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes in Raleigh on Tuesday night.
