NEW YORK -- Welcome to Day 2 of the NFL Draft. Alex Avila Jersey . Plenty of running backs are still available. For the second straight year, no running backs were selected in the first round. Before last year, that had never happened in the common draft era, which started in 1967 with the merger of the NFL and AFL. Once one of the footballs glamour positions, running backs have now been relegated to role players in the NFL. Star college backs such as Carlos Hyde, Bishop Sankey, Tre Mason and KaDeem Carey should start coming off the boards Friday night, when Rounds 2 and 3 are held at Radio City Music Hall. Round 1 on Thursday night started with South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney going to the Houston Texans and ended with the Minnesota Vikings trading back into the first round to pick Teddy Bridgewater. The Louisville quarterback wasnt the only high-profile passer to have a long wait backstage. Texas A&Ms Johnny Manziel waited about 3 hours before the Browns pulled off a trade to take the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner with pick No. 22. Now Johnny Football is Johnny Cleveland and the Texans are back on the clock, maybe looking for quarterback. Houston has the first pick of the second round. The Washington Redskins will get their draft started on Friday, with the second pick of Round 2, No. 34 overall. The defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks also have yet to make it pick. Seattle traded out of the first round, giving the Vikings the 32nd pick they used to take Bridgewater and getting back Nos. 40 and 108. Barring a trade up, Indianapolis would be the last team to draft. The Colts first pick is the 27th of the second round, No. 59 overall. Here are five things to look for on Day 2 of the NFL Draft. RUNNING MEN: Who will be the first running back off the board, and which team will break the seal? Ohio States Hyde is a good bet to be the answer to the first question. Hes big (230 pounds) and quick and doesnt have many miles on those big legs compared to some of the other workhorse backs. Arizonas Carey had 652 carries in his last two college seasons. Washingtons Sankey had 616. Hyde had 523 in four seasons at Ohio State. Mason, a Heisman finalist from Auburn, was relatively lightly used -- until last season. Other top running backs: LSUs Jeremy Hill; West Virginias Charles Sims; Towsons Terrance West; and Boston Colleges Andre Williams, another Heisman finalist. Teams in need of a back include Jacksonville, Tennessee, Cleveland and Miami. With running-back-by-committee all the rage, teams like to stockpile at the position -- without using first-round picks. STILL IN THE GREEN ROOM: Thirty players attended the NFL draft, so its no surprise that more than a few will have to return to Radio City for Day 2. Unpicked after the first round were: Missouri defensive end Kony Ealy; Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo; Minnesota defensive tackle RaShede Hageman; Alabama offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio; Indiana receiver Cody Latimer; USC receiver Marqise Lee; USC centre Marcus Martin; Vanderbilt receiver Jordan Matthews; and Virginia tackle Morgan Moses. CATCHING ON: If your team still needs a receiver after five were taken in Round 1, no need to fret. There is plenty of talent left at what is considered the deepest position in the draft. Start with Lee, who was being talked about as a possible top-10 pick after he was an All-American as a sophomore. A spotty junior season dropped his stock, but he could be a Day 2 steal. Dont be surprised if there is a run on receivers Friday with Matthews and Latimer, along with Fresno States Davante Adams, Mississippis Donte Moncrief, Penn States Allen Robinson and LSUs Jarvis Landry among those picked. OBRIENS QB. New Texans coach Bill OBrien said the team would draft a quarterback at some point. At the top of the second round Fresno States Derek Carr is available, along with Garoppolo, Pittsburghs Tom Savage, LSUs Zach Mettenberger, Alabamas AJ McCarron and Georgias Aaron Murray. Houston might be willing to wait until Day 3 to address quarterback. On Thursday, there were published reports the team was working to trade for Patriots backup Ryan Mallett. WHAT ABOUT SAM? Missouri linebacker Michael Sam, who publicly came out as homosexual in February, is hoping to be drafted this weekend, but its probably overly optimistic to expect him to be selected Friday. Its more likely the focus on when, where and if Sam goes will occur Saturday during rounds four through seven. The NFL has never had an active, openly gay player. Lance Parrish Jersey . The English Football Association had charged the German right back with violent conduct after retrospectively reviewing video evidence of an incident that was missed by match officials at Craven Cottage on Saturday. Justin Verlander Tigers Jersey . Neither striker Demba Ba nor Fernando Torres came close to scoring as Chelsea was left unsuccessfully appealing for penalties in this drab penultimate game of the season. "Our strikers are good strikers, no doubt about that, but players with some specific qualities," Mourinho said. .com) - John Wall supplied 24 points and 11 assists in leading the Washington Wizards to a 102-91 win over the New York Knicks on Christmas Day.After a nightmare of an MLS season, it was fitting, then, that the Impact, class of 2014, break from a mini post-season camp on the afternoon of Halloween. Like they did at the conclusion of their 2012 season, the club would have much preferred conducting the more meaningful post-season tour - most likely, following Joey Saputo’s considerable investment in Bologna FC, to have travelled to what is now absolutely the club’s spiritual home - Italy. The CBA, though, prevents any clubs in the league from conducting post-season tours. Monday afternoon, following their first post-season training session, the Impact conducted their formal post mortem. This also signalled the final time as a professional footballer that Marco Di Vaio would face the microphone and camera glare and spotlight. Some players used this opportunity to defer responsibility in favour of airing excuses of an MLS season gone pear-shaped. We heard of leadership voids and locker room divisions. Really? Don’t buy it, whatsoever. If leadership voids and locker room divisions were the root causes, then the much better effect would have been to have dealt with them as they occured. Players could have taken the lead of Matteo Ferrari, who hadn’t even caught his breath following the first formal day of training camp in late January, to let the media know his thoughts on the 2014 squad. Laying it all out, the defensive veteran let it be known that he was of the belief the squad was not as strong as 2013’s. Ferrari wondered aloud why key players, who had been lost at the end of the 2013 campaign, had not been replaced in the off season. With long-run predictions like that, a lucrative career in the financial and investments field awaits the 34-year-old Italian when he finally hangs up the boots. We all know now, of course, on an individual player and collective team basis that the Impact were not able to fully grasp coach Frank Klopas’s new system. A pitiful seven-game winless streak to start the season saw them collect only three paltry points from the 21 on offer. There would be no recovery. The club had to wait to the very end of April to record their first victory of the season, a very fortuitous one at that, in a 1-0 victory at home to the Philadelphia Union. By then, 2012’s first-overall pick from the MLS SuperDraft, Andrew Wenger, had been offloaded to the Union, his hometown club. During the rain-sodden match, Wenger had a gilt-edged opportunity to do what he rarely did in an Impact shirt and for what he was paid significant compensation: stick the ball in the back of a Stade Saputo net. Sans surprise, Wenger once more fluffed his lines from right in front of the Ultras. No matter who the Impact shipped in and out during the course of the season, the starting XI rarely played to script. Disjointed and dispirited performances plagued the team most of the MLS season. This all changed when a diminutive 29-year-old Argentine showed up. Although Ignaccio Piatti’s season was severely curtailed by injury, which limited him to appearing in only six league matches, his mere presence in town was enough to spread and provide a proper buoyancy throughout the squad, something of which had been sadly absent until the point Piatti stepped on the pitch in an Impact shirt for the first time in a home match against the Fire. Played on a mid-August Saturday evening, it was no surprise Di Vaio scored the only goal. Also unsurprisingly, torrential rain would yet again feature at a home match. Don’t ever let me hear again someone telling me it always rains in London. Blue skies in the morning and afternoon, come kick-off time, the only brightness in the sky came courtesy of the floodlights. Ultimately, the Impact posted only six wins from 17 home matches, hardly the stuff to instill fear in any opponent on their Stade Saputo travels. As for the Impact’s travels, they go down as one of the worst road records in the leeague’s entire history. Cameron Maybin Jersey. With a return of only five points gathered, all coming from drawn matches, a winless season on the road is not something for the Impact annals. A trick of an MLS season was more than compensated, though, with the Impact retaining their Voyageurs Cup title. An almost perfect record in the group stages of the CONCACAF Champions League and a first return since 2008 to the knockout stages provided the icing. The mere fact that a Voyageurs Cup and passage through to the final eight of the Champions League were achieved against the backdrop to the 19th franchise in MLS finishing, not only bottom of the Eastern Conference, but with the worst record in the entire 19-club league makes these accomplishments all the more valuable. Much credit for this must go to the much maligned technical staff for dusting off MLS woes and, in doing so, ensuring the players were purely focused on the task at hand. On Monday, we also learned the recipient of the 2014 Giuseppe Saputo Trophy and Andrés Romero was fully deserving of his MVP Award. Week-in, week-out, the 28-year-old Argentine wide-playing attacking midfielder bought a guile, craft and energy to the pitch, which was wanting so often in way too many of his teammates. In late August, the Impact let it be known they were keen on making Romero’s second season-long loan from Tombense in Brazil a permanent deal. Romero, himself, is also keen for this to happen. Another player who should return is the currently soon to be out-of-contract Patrice Bernier. As much as Habs fans might like the concept of the NHL’s most-winningest team going through the season without a captain, I’m not sure the legions of Impact supporters will be too happy if Bernier is not re-signed. Although Bernier did not play to his usual high standards in 2014, when he was supported by a proper cast, we saw more than enough evidence that there is still much more to come from the local lad. In the middle of the month, Bernier told TSN 690 that he absolutely wants to be back in 2015. Just on Wednesday, Impact technical director Matt Jordan disclosed to TSN 690 that contract discussions had indeed commenced. Jordan, though non-committal on disclosing a percentage on Bernier trotting out at Stade Saputo in 2015, certainly sounded optimistic. On the flip side, a player we now know will not be returning is Matteo Ferrari, with the Impact announcing earlier this afternoon that they would be declining his 2015 option. Even for the most down-heartened, there is though much to be upbeat and optimistic about in 2015 when MLS will celebrate season 20. No, I’m not counting when Chelsea legend Frank Lampard brings his new boys in blue up from Yankee Stadium for a visit, or possibly two, to Saputo Stadium. For one, the Impact’s splendid-looking, brand spanking new training facility will open its doors. A significant investment in nurturing and nourishing future talent, the facility will be a home for all of the Impact’s teams from the very youngest all the way up to the senior team. As response to the discontinuation of the MLS Reserve League, early last month, the Impact launched FC Montreal. Amalgamating their current Under-18 and Under-23 sides, FCM will take its bow in the USL Pro league next spring. Long before that, though, 50,000 and more of the Impact brethren will congregate one frigid evening in very early March over at the Olympic Stadium in anticipation of replicating one of the most extraordinary tales in club history. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, punch the words, “Montreal Impact February 25th, 2009” into your search engine. I suggest you bring your F1 and Osheaga ear plugs. It’s going to be extraordinarily loud. See you there.
