Sports: Morning Sports Shorts 3/23 

"Pro Day" at UT (registration): Nine former Longhorns audition for the NFL scouts and coaches today in events like the 40-yard dash and the shuttle run. The two biggest names are obviously Derrick Johnson and Cedric Benson, both of whom Mel Kiper lists as likely top ten picks.

Ricky back to Miami?: New Dolphins coach Nick Saban is looking for a tailback that brings versatility to the position. Williams fits that bill. With his studies in holistic medicine, he could possibly become the NFL's first-ever RB/Team Doctor. He's hoping to impress Dolphins' scouts later this week in events like bowl-loading and bong cleaning.

No date for Bonds' return: Barry Bonds is "tired." I'm just tired of hearing a daily update about him. The guy gets paid a lot of money, so I don't pity him for having to endure a media circus. But the constant scrutiny is more than overblown.

U.S. Soccer hopes to fix Mexican jinx: Wait, this is an entry about sports. My mistake.

Mock Drafting: The guys at CBS Sportsline have a few early looks at next month's NFL Draft. They unanimously have Dallas taking Shawne Merriman at No. 11. I'm holding out hope that Antrell Rolle or Derrick Johnson falls that far. Of course I'm still holding out hope that I'll someday make out with Jessica Alba.
