By ESPN.com staff
We're Black and Blue All Over:
Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune targets Henry Melton, Zack Bowman and Nick Roach as players with the potential to have a breakout season in 2011.
Neil Hayes says Plaxico Burress is just the type of receiver the Bears need.
It's early, but Mikel Leshoure has already caught the eye of some of his new teammates in Detroit.
Nick Fairley says he doesn't feel like he's falling behind despite missing all of the player-organized workouts this spring.
Green Bay Packers
ESPN's Tedy Bruschi says it's time for the Packers to start looking ahead to next season and stop celebrating the Super Bowl win. "Being the Super Bowl champions, you'd think they'd want to repeat," Bruschi said. "We're into June. It's June now. You've had your little celebration the week after the Super Bowl. It's time to move on. I think that they're still worried about celebrating and basking in the glory of being a Super Bowl champion is a little bit worrisome if I were a Green Bay Packers fan."
Rob Demovsky sees the competition between Charlie Peprah and Morgan Burnett as one of the more interesting training-camp battles.
Rookie quarterback Christian Ponder has his sights set on working out with the Vikings' offensive linemen soon.
NFL Network has former Vikings defensive lineman John Randle No. 3 on its list of the top undrafted players.
