Obviously, the story of the night is the collapse of Chris Polk's draftability as the former UW star went undrafted in the 2012 NFL Draft. By now, you all know the story. Second or third round talent has someone question his health in spite of a record run of 38 straight starts as a college performer and, as is typical, the herd mentality takes over as over half of the teams in the NFL take CP1 completely off their board. It is a shame for Chris given how hard he has worked for this. It is also a hint that the world is changing in terms of how the NFL looks at draftable RBs - performance and production are not as desired, especially if it means that excessive wear and tear have occurred. These days, it is the measurables, the potential and the fit for a role that matter the most. This could have a lasting effect on how the position gets recruited and manned in the college game and raises the question as to how many true workhorses we will see in the future.

Enough of the soapbox stump speech. There were lots of interesting things flying around the web last night. Here are some dots...and tweets... to get your Sunday off right (after the jump).

Twitter Madness - lots of great posts out there on Twitter. I picked a few for you non-Tweeters to peruse. Enjoy.
