Injury didn’t hinder Ragnow’s draft stock, conviction

Halfway through his senior season at Arkansas, Frank Ragnow was the model of durability.

He had started 33 consecutive games — 13 at right guard as a sophomore in 2015, 12 at center and one at right guard in his junior season of 2016 and the first seven games of 2017 as the Razorbacks’ center. Ragnow was not only one of the best interior lineman in the country, he was tough.

He was a guy that was pretty clean through the process, Quinn said. He’s coming back from an injury that he missed the second half of the season with an ankle. Other than the injury, he was a real, clean prospect that I didn’t really feel like we needed to do a whole lot of extra work on in terms of visit here or private workout or any of those things.

Ragnow’s injury required a minor procedure, but by the time the Combine and pro day at Arkansas rolled around, Ragnow was 100 percent.

The rehab process honestly went way smoother than I expected, he said. It was a very routine surgery that back in the day wasn’t even necessary, but it just really made sure that my ankle was good for the long run. And now, to be honest, it’s a normal ankle. I feel great and it’s been a couple months since I’ve even had any problems with it. It’s a normal ankle.

He earned first-team all-conference honors and decided to forgo his senior year to enter the draft. ANALYSIS Jones, who dealt with a nagging hamstring injury throughout the pre-draft process, is an explosive athlete who accelerates to and through the hole.

I’ve talked to a lot of teams over the last couple of weeks and that just adds to the excitement. We just have coaches and scouts call my agents, Robert Walker and Josh Adams from Unlimited Success Sports.

Okorafor, affectionately nicknamed Chukes, won’t turn 21 until August. He is expected to be the third WMU offensive linemen picked in the past three years with Willie Beavers (Southfield Lathrup) going to Minnesota (fourth round, 2016) and Taylor Moton (Okemos) to Carolina (second round) last season.

Okorafor — 6-foot-6 and 320 pounds — will watch the draft with his parents and friends in Southfield. He feels he could hear his name on Friday as a possible second- or third-round pick.

I worked out for the Lions in Allen Park and the Cheap European Soccer Jerseys Texans watched me in Kalamazoo, Okorafor said. I also went Cheap Green Bay Packers Jerseys to Philadelphia and (Washington), too.

Larry Nance Jr. was a U.S. soldier’s pen pal, and 14 years later she shared his letters

Bianca Snow, a United States soldier, had an old pen pal whose name you might recognize now. His name is Larry Nance Jr., a current Los Angeles Laker, and she posted his old letters from 14 years ago on Facebook and Twitter. They’re incredible.

Kept letters from my pen pal while I was overseas… Those letter got me thru (like I was locked down for 23) lol… Seriously I’m going to find this kid and thank him.
Three years ago, Nance was much less known as a college basketball player for Wyoming.

Are you good at basketball? I like the Lakers too they are wining there series with the Timberwolves. Who is your favorite player? Mine is Shaq. Who do you want to get LeBron James? I want the Cavs to get LeBron, that is because my dad played for the Cavs. His number is retired in the Gund Arena.

The threat was there and clear for the Warriors. Iguodala was going to make them sweat the idea of losing him — and in turn maybe a simple title run — over a few million dollars and a guaranteed contract year.

Iguodala remained relentless.

On Saturday night, Iguodala met with Warriors general manager Bob Myers and head coach Steve Kerr in L.A. That’s where he received the offer he was looking for, worth $48 million over three guaranteed years.

That’s $20 to $24 million more in guaranteed than what was to have been originally on the table. That’s excellent negotiating work.

Iguodala played the market to perfection and was confident in his worth around the Cheap Hockey Jerseys Custom league. He set a tone that players around the league should follow. Of course, being a former Cheap Green Bay Packers Jerseys Finals MVP really helped in his specific scenario.
