Still, nearly every projection heading into Thursday night had Lamp going off the board in the first. The Western Kentucky product spent nearly his entire career at left tackle and will be making the full-time transition to guard, where he projects as an elite talent. Lamp's pass-blocking skills should be a welcome presence for Philip Rivers, who has been getting pummeled regularly for years He's not going to transform the pass protection from inside, but Lamp has all the makings of a day-one starter.

What starts out as a linear series of corridors soon expands into a massive labyrinth maze as your character gets the skills and abilities needed to traverse it. Then, halfway through the game, the whole concept is quite literally flipped on its head as the castle youve been exploring for a dozen hours turns upside down. Its one of the most surprising moments in gaming but the effect is brilliant, and immediately forces you to relearn an environment youve slowly learned as well as the back of your hand. Jon Porter - Home Technology UK Writer Progress is overrated. Sure, that slow-but-steady improvement is tantalising, but theres something to be said for taking stock and appreciating what you have in that moment. SimCity is a game that embraces these moments. Youll spend hours zoning residental areas, building up transport infrastructures and maintaining public services, but reach a certain point and your city will hum away like a well-oiled machine.

Eleven bodies were retrieved from the river on Friday as anxious relatives and villagers continued to gather at the banks of the river. Three bodies were found on Wednesday. The bamboo jetty was used by hundreds of passengers daily to take boats to the other side of the river. "We hope to find the bodies soon," Udip Das, a police officer overlooking the operation told AFP. Four operators of the boat service and the jetty have been arrested on charges of criminally negligent manslaughter, he said. Most Indians lack swimming skills despite half of the country being situated on the coastline and hundreds of lakes and rivers criss-crossing the country. Over the years the country has reported one of the highest drowning deaths rates in the world, with nearly 30,000 people drowning in 2014, according to the latest official figures. — AFP

Some of them had their applications rejected and after the roadshow reviewed the cases, they were eventually successful in their second attempt. "The education agenda is not a political agenda for elections but an agenda for all. "We will go to the ground to help them and it is not a seasonal event," Ahmad Zahid, who is also Bagan Datoh MP, said. He pointed out that such events are not only undertaken by government agencies but organised through NGOs and other organisations to complement the various programmes. Ahmad Zahid advised the students who will graduate to not only help their families and friends, but also serve the country. "When you have graduated with education skills, you should continue to support the organisers," he added. He said next year, the nationwide roadshow will be launched in Bagan Datoh.

The piece suggested United have identified Hart as a possible replacement for David De Gea this summer should Real Madrid lure the Spaniard away. And despite the rivalry between the two clubs, City are said to be willing to let the England international join any team that matches their whopping £30 million valuation. "Nothing will be ruled out with regard to Joe," a City source quoted by Mullock said. "But we know there will be lots of interest from both home and abroad and we won't accept anything less than the true market value." Needless to say, former Sunderland goalkeeper David Preece doesn't see this transfer going through in the summer: Hart is currently on loan at Torino from City and has had an inconsistent season in Serie A. However, his experience, leadership skills and winning mentality would make him a tempting proposition for many clubs.

com's Mike G. Morreale : Injuries are part of hockey and it's unfortunate for Nolan that he's having to miss playing due to injury during his draft year. The injuries Nolan incurred require time to heal and rehabilitation. He is expected to fully recover. [...] He has more than proven over the last three years that he is the real deal and he will be an impact NHL player. Still only 18, Patrick shows a wisdom well beyond his age on the ice. It's one thing to be a skilled prospect. It's another to not only have the necessary skills but also the intuition for how best to utilize those skills to maximum effect in real-time situations. The Devils would be foolish to let the last season color their judgment too much in their assessment of Patrick. Passing on him with the first pick would be a big mistake. Owen Tippett, RW, Mississauga The Mississauga Steelheads offered a glimpse of what's to come when they shared a replay of Owen Tippett's goal against the Oshawa Generals on April 13: At 6'0" and 200 pounds, Tippett will have the size to hold his own in the NHL when he arrives.

The nephew of former NFL quarterback Jim Kelly, Chad doesn't lack natural talent. He is blessed with an excellent arm and impressive movement skills in and out of the pocket. Hes a natural athlete with a quick release and enough arm to open up the playbook. From an arm-talent standpoint, Kellys strength and accuracy are impressive. Hes able to make off-platform throws and let the ball rip on the move with excellent arm angles and strength. Hes poised and athletic when pressured. Kellys timing in the pocket is exceptional, and he has a great feel for when to move, when to tuck-and-run and when to stand in and take a shot.

Measurables Height Weight 40 Time 3-Cone Short Shuttle 5'11" 197 lbs 4.54s 6.72s 4.13s POSITIVES A four-year starter who is still super young (22 in July), Xavier Woods is a fun, smart, high-upside player at free safety. He wasn't on my radar until the East-West Shrine Game in January, but there, his instincts and his awareness were off-the-charts good in an all-star setting. Woods has excellent ball skills and posted 14 interceptions in the last three seasons. Once he gets the ball in his hands, he's explosive and dangerous as a return man. As a three-down player, Woods can line up near the line of scrimmage or as a deep safety. Louisiana Tech loved to use him as a blitzer, and he was successful in that role (three sacks in '16). Woods' instincts and his football IQ are well-developed, and his lower-level of competition shouldn't be downplayed.

Measurables Height Weight 40 Time Arm Length Hand Size 3-Cone 6'3" 215 lbs 4.48s 34" 10" 6.64s POSITIVES A one-year starter at Utah, Brian Allen is one of the biggest, longest cornerbacks in the 2017 draft class. A former wide receiver, he looks the part of the physical press cornerback and has the long speed to turn and run deep with vertical threats. He flashed ball skills in his lone season starting, grabbing four interceptions. He has excellent length (34" arms) and big hands (10"), and combined with his 38-inch vertical jump, he has one of the biggest coverage radiuses in the draft class. Allen is a high-upside player with awesome size, length and speed. Teams will be willing to bet on their ability to continue his development. He's a high-character player and can be an impact in the running game with his hitter mentality. NEGATIVES Allen's coverage instincts need patience to be developed.
