Brilliant idea
March 10, 2006 -- Who would be better to talk about the pressure of the NFL Draft than perhaps the biggest bust in league history?

NFL Network - which for the first time will provide counter-coverage to ESPN's presentation on April 29 - is interested in having Ryan Leaf, the 1998 No. 2 pick, as part of its draft show, an NFL Network spokesman confirmed.

Last month, Leaf accepted a job to be the quarterback coach for West Texas A&M University. Leaf would likely be part of a round-table of players on the show.

"We think he would offer a unique perspective,'' an NFL Network spokesman said.
