Cornerback Brandon Burton and guard Caleb Schlauderaff were the only Utah Utes taken in last week's National Football League Draft. Burton is headed to the Minnesota Vikings and Schlauderaff is going to the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers. Check out what the media is saying about the draftees.

— The Utes pick up a basketball commitment from Florida. Javon Dawson chooses Utah over Colorado State offer.

— Utah grad Andre Miller told reporters in Portland that he plans to continue playing basketball as long as he's healthy. The 35-year-old is headed home for the summer after the Trail Blazers were eliminated from the NBA Playoffs by the Dallas Mavericks.

J.J. O'Brien visited UNLV last weekend. Could he join former BYU assistant Dave Rice on the Runnin' Rebels?

— And finally, more discussion on Urban Meyer and Ohio State.
