Harold Landry to Lions in CBS Sports’ latest mock draft

Boston College defensive end Harold Landry is the Detroit Lions’ first-round pick, at No. 20, in CBS Sports’ latest mock draft, published Monday.

“This pick can be viewed as insurance for the Lions if they can’t extend Ziggy Ansah, and Landry doesn’t have to be the team’s alpha pass-rusher in his rookie campaign,” says CBS Sports’ Chris Trapasso.

Luck was the highest-regarded prospect of this generation, so it’s no surprise he received every first-place vote from the queried scouts. Among the guys who didn’t make it to the top five were Kirk Cousins (13 points), Russell Wilson (6) and Nick Foles (1). McGinn himself ranked Osweiler over Wilson, with one scout saying Osweiler was “like the CEO of a company.” That’s another roundabout way of saying someone’s tall. Many were concerned about the 5-foot-11 Wilson’s ability to throw from the pocket, but the only thing that’s prevented him from doing so as a pro has been the Seahawks’ offensive line.

The scouts rightly thought this was a dismal quarterback class, although it’s clear to see the difference between the consensus and what actually happened on draft day. While most of the league preferred Smith, the Bills were one of the exceptions and took Manuel with the 16th pick. The Florida State passer was the only quarterback taken in the first round.

And then they all walked back to their dugouts. Womp, womp.

It started when Red Sox shortstop Brock Holt and Yankees designated hitter Tyler Austin got into an argument at second base.

Tyler Wade tried bunting for a base hit down the third base line. But Rafael Devers fielded it and whipped the ball to Holt at second base.

The throw was in plenty of time and Holt positioned himself with one foot on the back of the base.

When he caught the ball, Austin slid in hard and on Holt’s side of the base, sticking out his left foot. Austin clearly intended to go after Holt’s leg. It wasn’t clear if Austin’s spiked caught Holt.

Immediately, the pair jumped into each other’s faces. Then the benches and bullpens cleared.

When the sides parted, the Red Sox challenged the call for slide interference.la_kings_015
