Kirwan on D&C: Pats won't pass on Bryant

NFL.com senior analyst Pat Kirwan joined Dennis & Callahan Tuesday morning to talk about his mock draft as the real draft approaches. Kirwan has the Patriots taking controversial Oklahoma State wide receiver Dez Bryant in the first round and using their three second-round picks on TCU linebacker Jerry Hughes, Florida quarterback Tim Tebow and Murray State defensive end Austen Lane.

 

On the Dez Bryant pick, Kirwan said: "I just think if he's there, they'll take him. They've got to get ready for life after Randy Moss, and I don't think Bill [Belichick] is afraid of anything with this guy."

 

Kirwan said Tom Brady essentially is the receivers coach, and he won't stand for anyone who doesn't approach the game the right way. "I think at the end of the day that's an investment they can make and it wouldn't backfire," Kirwan said, dismissing comments about Bryant's intelligence. "We can paint a picture...

Cameron headed to disabled list

Mike Cameron will be placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with an abdominal strain. The 37-year-old outfielder missed Monday's game due to discomfort similar to the kind he suffered through when passing kidney stones last week. Although the it was believed that there are further stones to be passed by Cameron, the possibility of that same ailment causing Cameron's pain Monday was ruled out.

 

The Sox also have to make a decision on outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, who continues to feel the effects of a rib injury suffered in Minnesota on April 12. The Red Sox were to put the left fielder through a workout Tuesday in order to make a decision on whether or not to place Ellsbury on the disabled list, retroactive to when he left the lineup. Josh Reddick will be called up from Triple A Pawtucket, where he was hitting .179 with seven strikeouts and a walk. Another possibility was Darnell McDonald, who is hitting .341 with two homers and a .683...

The Rutgers job opened when embattled coach Fred Hill accepted a settlement Monday and resigned.

Area HS track athlete dies at practice

Alexander Doucette, an 18-year-old senior at Nashoba Regional High School in Bolton, died Monday morning after collapsing during track practice.

 

Fellow track athlete Coby Horowitz told the Worcester Telegram & Gazette that Doucette was a sprinter and “a great kid” of whom everyone talked highly. "I heard about it at 10:30 when everyone was leaving," Horowitz said. "He collapsed at the finish line. They thought he fainted but he got defibrillated and taken to the hospital."

 

"The death of a student is a terrible blow to the school community," Nashoba Regional High School principal Jeremy Roche wrote in a letter posted to the school’s website. "Please know that we intend to provide support for all students and staff throughout this crisis."
