Watching the NFL draft unfold every year is about more than just analyzing picks and how they fit with their new teams. It's also about analyzing suits and how they fit, both on the players themselves and in the annals of draft outfits, sharp or sloppy.

While you take time now (while scanning Netflix for 'Legally Blonde') to debate which looks worked and which didn't, start working on your mock draft for 2013, and take odds on who will look the sharpest: Matt Barkley or Denard Robinson?

The NFL released its "new" NFL uniforms a few weeks ago, and they didn't exactly wow us.

But starting Thursday, Nike will begin selling team-specific sneakers for all 32 teams as part of an "NFL Draft Pack" -- and some of the designs are pretty great.

The sneakers come in six wildly different styles based on division.

Our favorites: The AFC South's hoops-inspired Dunk '08s.

Our least favorites: The NFC East's AirMax 95 No-Sews.

As teams prepare for the NFL draft this week, it is worth looking back to see who lived up to the hype five years ago. JaMarcus Russell, Calvin Johnson and Adrian Peterson were part of one of the NFL's most roller-coaster drafts in recent history. Some teams got it right (Lions) and some teams got it wrong (Raiders). What were some of the top NFL Draft minds saying about some about the top prospects at the time? Here are a review of the top seven in '07.

NFL Draft

Life is an infinite series of small choices, often with no true downside: Now or later? Movie or ballgame? Paper or plastic? Even when pondering more far-reaching decisions, we often select one option that works out well enough, even if hindsight says a different choice might have been more rewarding. For instance: You're OK with your job, but it gnaws at you that the guy who took the one you turned down earned a quick promotion. Or you like the house you bought, though the one you passed up on the other side of town recently sold at a nice profit. And your marriage is working out pretty well, but ... well, let's not even go there.

NFL executives often find themselves in a similar position at draft time. Sure, every so often, a first-round stink bomb is tossed: Think Ryan Leaf. And let's not forget even the Colts for a while agonized over this pick and nearly took Leaf, who was perceived to have more upside, over Peyton Manning with the No. 1 pick in the 1998 draft.

But when dealing with legitimate top-of-the-board talent, franchises seldom blunder terribly. Still, that doesn't mean draft headquarters wouldn't like the occasional do-over. So with the combine, pro days, individual workouts and Wonderlic tests behind us, it seemed a good time to analyze decisions made on first-round selections since the 1970 merger comparing two players who played the same position.

As baseball players are traded, bought, or signed as free agents, they leave behind homes and need new ones. Consequently, real estate markets from Boston to San Diego are awash each spring in high-end homes for sale belonging to departing and arriving Yankees, Dodgers and Braves.

Not all players' homes are mansions and penthouses -- the following properties owned by 300-300 club members, Hall of Famers, and a 12-time All-Star and a 21-season veteran include at least one ranch house. All but one, however, appeared on TopTenRealEstateDeals.com's annual list of Luxurious MLB Homes, starting off with a timely addition from one of New York's most prominent longtime Yankees.

On Tuesday night, Jamie Moyer became the oldest pitcher in MLB history to win a game at 49 years and 181 days. He tossed seven innings and gave up just two runs (zero earned) in an outing that made him look a bit younger than a guy pushing the half-century mark.

The stereotype about professional athletes' wives is they're not much more than gold-digging arm candy, with few accomplishments of their own. The stereotype no longer applies today, thanks to the efforts of some high-profile women who established themselves well before they married their famous husbands.

Many of the wives of today's professional athletes are entrepreneurs and business professionals. Some of them have been so successful in their chosen fields they are as famous as their husbands. Sometimes even more so -- everyone knows Carrie Underwood but not everyone knows the name of her husband, NHL player Mike Fisher.

New state-of-the-art stadiums and sports arenas have popped up all over the country in the past few years; along with updated standards in guest amenities, these venues have gone above and beyond to provide gastronomic pleasures that exceed the expected burgers and fries by a long shot. In many stadiums, regional foods are proudly featured and fresh ingredients are emphasized. And luxury suite fare is more varied than ever, with menu packages from sushi bars to Mediterranean food for the true gourmet. Even stadium classics are often given a fresh twist -- like Safeco Field's Ivar Dog, which is actually fried cod.

SoIn sporting cities around the country, from Los Angeles to Philadelphia, restaurant-quality food lives up to the impressive view of the game — NBA suites in LA feature local artisan cheeses, you can eat sliced mushroom strudel with feta and red pepper coulis while watching Major League Baseball in Seattle, and in Dallas, home of all-American fare, comfort food gets an upgrade when items like truffled mac and cheese make the menu.

But these arenas haven't forgotten the favorites that the fans have come to love over the years. Still available are the classic foods that people associate with their live sports experiences; from suites to the bleachers, fans clamor for Gilroy Garlic Fries at AT&T Park and for Dodger Dogs in Los Angeles.

The bottom line is that it's all about choices now -- to go with your peanuts and Cracker Jacks, naturally.

Eli Manning's second Super Bowl title celebration tour is not over. NBC has announced the Giants quarterback will host "Saturday Night Live" on May 5. Manning is the 11th football player to host the show (including Carl Weathers, whose fame was more due to acting than football). Rihanna is slotted to be the musical guest.

Initial reaction is that Manning is too quiet to star on the show, but, hey, has he ever failed under the New York limelight before? Manning will be the fifth quarterback to host "SNL." He joins an elite group, which includes his brother and the guy he's beaten in the last two Super Bowls.

Fran Tarkenton

Jan. 29, 1977 (Season 2, Episode 13): Just 20 days after losing Super Bowl XI with the Vikings, Tarkenton became the first athlete to host what was known then as "NBC's Saturday Night." Although he played his first six and final seven seasons in Minnesota, Tarkenton spent five years (1967-1971), as a Giant in New York, the site of SNL. Many of the sketches the Hall of Famer took part in were football-based. That includes this skit in which John Belushi plays the coach of the Saturday Night Team. Note: The full episode shows Dick Schaap in the audience. Musical guests: Leo Sayer, and Donny Harper and the Voices of Tomorrow.

Joe Montana

Jan. 24, 1987 (Season 12, Episode 9): On the eve of Super Bowl XXI between the Giants and Broncos, NBC landed two of football's most iconic faces as hosts: Montana and Walter Payton. Just a few weeks earlier, Montana had suffered a mild concussion in a 49-3 divisional playoff loss to the Giants in nearby East Rutherford, N.J. Montana was not afraid to make that the topic of his monologue. Musical Guest: Debbie Harry.

Tom Brady

April 16, 2005 (Season 30, Episode 16): Fresh off his third Super Bowl title in four years, Brady became the youngest quarterback to host at 27. For one night, Boston's favorite son took New York. One of Brady's top performances came in a skit called "Sexual Harassment and You" in which he poked fun at his pretty-boy personality. Brady also had some fun backstage with Peyton Manning, Donovan McNabb and Donovan McNabb's mom. Sort of. Musical Guest: Beck.

Peyton Manning

March 24, 2007 (Season 32, Episode 16): In one of SNL's highest-rated shows of the season (it re-aired twice before Season 33 began), the reigning Super Bowl MVP continued his dominance among marketable athletes. Manning took shots from Amy Poehler about Tom Brady having more Super Bowl rings than him, but also took his own shots at a group of young children (see video). Brothers Eli and Cooper wheeled out a cake, as the episode was on Manning's 31st birthday. Archie and Olivia Manning also make appearances. Musical Guest: Carrie Underwood.

The soccer world was stunned Saturday when a 25-year-old player in Italy collapsed on the field from a heart attack and was later pronounced dead at the hospital. Piermario Morosini, a Livorno midfielder, was playing a second division game at Pescara, and the Italian Football Association postponed all weekend matches after the tragedy.

Deaths during competition have occurred in the NFL, NHL and MLB, among other sports. Below are 12 of the more notable. The list does not include Reggie Lewis of the Celtics whose heart defect caused him to collapse during an off-season workout or NFL players Korey Stringer and J.V. Cain who died at training camp.
