The Trib: Tigers' Pressey weighs senior season vs. uncertain NBA draft
Most draft analysts project Pressey to be a second-round selection. ESPN.com’s Chad Ford ranks him 56th on his list of this year’s 100 best prospects. DraftExpress.com, in its latest mock draft, forecasts that he’ll be the 17th selection in the second round, though the site’s president, Jonathan Givony, said in a phone interview this week that he believed Pressey could get consideration from some teams picking late in the first round.
That only complicates Pressey’s decision.
"If you are" projected "a first-round pick to second round, that kind of means you can be undrafted," said Ryan Blake, the senior director of NBA scouting operations, who was speaking generally about the draft process and not specifically about Pressey because he has not declared. "If you look over the many years and do some homework, some of these guys that have had a lot of buzz didn’t get drafted, didn’t make teams."

- Spring Break's Over ... Game On!
PowerMizzou: Coming into Focus: Offense
Is Missouri done shuffling on the offensive line? Evan Boehm has moved from guard to center. Brad McNulty moved from center to guard. Right now, those moves seem permanent, but are they the only ones? Justin Britt and Taylor Chappell could return after the break. Britt would regain the left tackle spot, and Chappell would add depth to both left and right tackle. The team has been high on Chappell, before a preseason injury in 2012. His emergence could possibly force Mitch Morse inside to guard. The offensive line coaches have talked about getting the five best linemen on the field. Over the next three weeks, that will finally be a realistic goal as all the linemen become healthy.
Which young player will breakout? Missouri is usually good for one redshirt freshman or sophomore to breakout every spring. In 2011, it was E.J. Gaines, and a strong spring gave way to an all-Big 12 year. This year, in addition to Simon and Gibson, Harold Brantley, Kentrell Brothers, Shane Ray, Donavin Newsom and Michael Scherer have all been mentioned as future stars. My money is on Brothers, who is noticeably bigger and will play a large role at linebacker whether he starts or not.
The Trib (Dave Matter): Franklin hits the beach for spring break
Franklin was in San Diego earlier this week working with renowned quarterback specialist George Whitfield for some individual lessons, the senior quarterback confirmed.
Whitfield has earned acclaim for working with each of the last two No. 1 overall NFL draft picks, Cam Newton and Andrew Luck, as well as two-time Super Bowl winner Ben Roethlisberger and last year's Heisman Trophy winner, Johnny Manziel. […]
It's not uncommon for college quarterbacks to seek some outside instruction. For years, Berkstresser has worked with Fayette-based QBs coach Skip Stitzell, who also tutored the Gabbert brothers. A few weeks ago, Georgia's Aaron Murray spent his spring break working with Whitfield, who also coached Alabama incoming freshman Luke Del Rio and UCLA freshman Asiantii Woulard this past week.
There's also this, but I'm saving it for another post...

So in Rob Zastryzny's starts thus far, Mizzou has lost 5-2, 6-0, 4-1, 4-0, and 2-0. The Tigers also beat San Francisco, 6-2. So in six starts, he's gotten nine runs of support … six in one game. Damn shame.
