They should be very smart, but not take themselves too seriously.” Ty was someone I met online, and it started out really well. He actually had a good profile, and good photos, and he seemed to exude personality, which is in short supply in Toronto. I like that as a first date because you can end it quickly if he turns out to be just another lame-o. I realize a lot of guys aren’t sure about what is okay and not okay to talk about.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — John Elway gave Joe Flacco what he wanted Thursday night when the Denver Broncos general manager bypassed a quarterback in the first round of the draft and selected Iowa tight end Noah Fant with the 20th pick. Fant and T.J. Hockenson, selected eighth by the Detroit Lions, became the first tight end teammates ever selected in the first round of the draft. “And I would argue that I’m in the best situation for a tight end in this draft,” he said. Fant joins a young offence featuring second-year receiver Courtland Sutton and a tight end corps loaded with Big Ten alumni in Jake Butt, Jeff Heuerman and Troy Fumagalli, all coming off injuries. Last week, Flacco implored Elway to pick a non-QB in the first round, a stance that Elway said he understood completely.

DAVIE, Fla. — Moments after becoming a Miami Dolphin, defensive tackle Christian Wilkins nearly sacked Roger Goodell. The Dolphins hope it was the first of many NFL celebrations by Wilkins, a 315-pound lineman from Clemson with an outsize personality to match. The Dolphins had an extensive scouting report on Wilkins because their new defensive line coach, Marion Hobby, was his position coach at Clemson. Arizona took Rosen with the 10th overall pick last year, and the former UCLA star had a rocky rookie season. With a multitude of needs still to be addressed, the Dolphins have one pick in the second round and another in the third round Friday.

The Oakland Raiders used the fourth pick in the draft on Clemson defensive end Clelin Ferrell on Thursday night, passing up other pass rushers rated higher by analysts in the team’s quest to find a replacement for Khalil Mack. Ferrell said he knew the Raiders liked him but didn’t know if they would use the first of three first-round selections to take him. Ferrell called himself an “NFL historian” and pointed out past great defensive linemen in Raiders history like Hall of Famers Howie Long and Ted Hendricks. Ferrell had 11 1/2 sacks last season for the national champion Tigers and finished with 27 sacks in 84 career games. He gives the Raiders insurance if they decide not to pick up the fifth-year option on 2016 first-round safety Karl Joseph, who is entering the final year of his rookie deal.

Even so, Woods tells GOLFTV it will take “special moments” like his one-shot victory at Augusta National. “I’ve lost a little bit off my fastball, so I’ve got to rely on the driver,” Woods said. Woods said he had been thinking about the Masters for six months. Now he faces a quick turnaround — the PGA Championship starts in three weeks at Bethpage Black, where Woods won the U.S. Open in 2002. Woods compares this Masters to his first one in 1997 because it took time for the magnitude to sink it.

Jason Kenney was recently elected premier of Alberta after campaigning against Justin Trudeau’s federal Liberals, rather than Rachel Notley’s provincial NDP. But Carroll appears to have picked up on real discussions being held in the circle around the prime minister. As one senior source close to the premier-designate said: “There is no mention of an emissions cap in the UCP platform one way or another. The carbon emissions cap was not scheduled to kick in until 2030 and oilsands emissions, at around 70 megatons a year, are well short of the proposed limit. The premier and prime minister look destined to collideThen there is the reaction in the rest of Canada.

So two days after the season ended in a seven-game first-round loss to Boston, there was plenty of self-recrimination. That’s my expectation.”Now, you could say Dubas didn’t guarantee anybody’s job because he is a thinker, an analyzer. Dubas said “Mike and I talk every day, sometimes longer than either of us wish, I imagine. There’s not anybody staunch in their stance that what we’re doing is great, and we can’t change it.”Well, maybe one. There are big decisions coming, and Kyle Dubas has to decide who is essential, who is manageable, and who gets the knife.
