SAY WHAT?

Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw said his favorite thing about Magic Johnson's group buying the Dodgers is how well-known his boss is: "When someone asks who our owner is, we can just say it and move on." ... NFL Network's Rich Eisen, who is hosting the draft coverage, is glad the league asked broadcasters to stop showing players in the green room answering their phone right before they're selected. "It was getting completely out of control," Eisen said. "There was no way to stop it. There was no way to tell teams they couldn't call their prospects." ... I asked Texas A&M's Ryan Tannehill how he would have reacted three years ago, when he was playing wide receiver for the Aggies, if I had told him he could be a top 10 pick at quarterback. "[I would have been] really surprised," Tannehill said. "I don't know if I would have believed you." ... Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins visited the Broncos before the draft and talked to the newly arrived Peyton Manning, but only briefly. "He's kind of a rock star," Cousins told me, "so I didn't want to bother him."
