2. A snapshot look at compensatory draft-pick considerations.

3. Stevan Ridley and the possibility of a new look at running back in 2015, or perhaps sooner.

4. Tom Brady closing on his 37th birthday and if there are links to another past great quarterback.

5. Andre Johnson, Ryan Mallett and Patriots-Texans trade speculation.

6. First-round pick Dominique Easley and his torn ACLs.
