Catch the NFL Draft live on TSN2 starting at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. Fisher over Joeckel? Profootballtalk compiled all the reports suggesting that the Kansas City Chiefs could prefer LT Eric Fisher over Luke Joeckel with the first overall pick in the draft, contrary to several mock drafts leading up to draft day. Revis Replacement? Highly-ranked cornerback prospect Dee Milliner told New York Daily News that the New York Jets like him as a potential selection even more after the team traded their top cover man, Darrelle Revis, to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this week. As a result of the trade, the Jets have two first-round picks, No. 9 and No. 13. There is also the chance the Jets could trade down to acquire more picks. ESPN New York reports Jets GM John Idzik expects to hold substantive talks about trading picks in the first round. Browns Moving Up? According to a report originally from the NFL Network, the Cleveland Browns could be interested in trading up to the top three in order to select a pass rusher. Speculation exists that the Browns could be targeting LSU defensive end Barkevious Mingo. Different QB In Sight? One day after multiple reports suggested that the Buffalo Bills were targeting QB Ryan Nassib with one of their early picks in the NFL Draft, there are now reports that Buffalo is more interested in USC QB Matt Barkley. Profootballtalk warns that this, like every other rumour out there, could be nothing more than a smokescreen. Elite Sebastian Janikowski Jersey .

PHOENIX -- Ian Kennedy is tied with Roy Halladay for the most wins in the National League at 15. Kennedys Arizona Diamondbacks have taken a two-game lead over reigning world champion San Francisco in the NL West. Its a nice story seemingly overlooked on a national scene consumed, among other things, by the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry and the heralded return of the NFL. "I think our whole team is flying under the radar," Kennedy said, "and I dont mind it at all." Kennedy (15-3) allowed a run on six hits in seven innings to win his seventh straight start and the Diamondbacks opened a three-game series with a 4-3 victory over the New York Mets on Friday night. Justin Upton homered, Cody Ransom doubled in two runs and Kennedy helped himself with an RBI double as Arizona pulled two games ahead of the second-place Giants, who lost 2-1 at Florida. "Its nice," Upton said, "but a two-game lead in August doesnt mean anything." Trail, B.C.s Jason Bay went 3 for 4 with a double and RBI single in the Mets third straight loss and ninth in 12 games. New York stranded nine and was 1 for 10 with runners in scoring position. Arizona first baseman-outfielder Xavier Nadys left hand was broken when he was hit by a pitch from the Mets Dillon Gee in the second inning. "X Nady is probably playing the best he has all year," said Arizona manager Kirk Gibson, who didnt know how long the player would be sidelined. The Mets rallied with a run off setup man David Hernandez in the eighth and another off closer J.J. Putz in the ninth but fell just short. Putz got his 28th save in 32 tries. With their 66th victory, the Diamondbacks topped their win total for all of last season, when they finished last in the NL West for the second year in a row. They have won four straight. Mets manager Terry Collins said Gee got away from the curve ball after Upton hit one in the seats in the first inning. "It goes to show what is happening with Dillon and that is if he gets frustrated with something, if he doesnt make a good pitch, he gets away from things," Collins said, "and he has to stick with what made him successful." Gee (10-4), who gave up four runs on five hits in five innings, fell to 3-4 in his last nine starts. "I wasnt really upset about the one run," he said. "Really it was the next inning that bothers me. I gave up a couple of hits and all of a sudden they score three runs, before you know it.dddddddddddd" Kennedy struck out five, walked three and hit a batter. "Maybe he didnt have his best stuff tonight," Gibson said, "didnt locate as well as he has in the past, but he found a way through it." He has not given up more than three runs in any of his last seven starts and hasnt lost since July 3. The 26-year-old right-hander came from the New York Yankees in December of 2009 as part of the three-team deal that sent Curtis Granderson from Detroit to the Yankees. His seven straight wins tie the Yankees C.C. Sabathia and Detroits Justin Verlander for longest streak in the majors this season. Arizona scored three in the second. With one out, Nady was hit on an 0-2 pitch but stayed in the game to run the bases before leaving when the inning ended. Sean Burroughs doubled to put runners at second and third, then Cody Ransom doubled down the left field line to score both of them. That brought up Kennedy, who squared to bunt, but pulled back to swing away, doubling deep into the right-centre gap to bring home Ransom and make it 4-0. The Mets loaded the bases with one out in the fourth on a hit batter, single and walk, but Kennedy fanned Ruben Tejada on three pitches, then struck out Gee to end the inning. New York broke through in the fifth when Angel Pagan singled, took second on David Wrights walk, then scored on Bays second single of the night. Bay doubled off David Hernandez to lead off the eighth, took third when Josh Thole lined out to right and scored on Tejadas groundout to make it a two-run game. After a foul ball hit a support beam on the Chase Field roof, a very rare occurrence, pinch hitter Scott Hairston doubled off Putz to start the ninth, then took third on a ground out. He scored on Willie Harris sacrifice fly to cut the lead to 4-3. But Wright grounded out to second to end the game. NOTES: Only the ALs Verlander (17) and Sabathia (16) have more wins than Kennedy. ... Kennedys three walks match his season high. ... Arizonas Daniel Hudson, coming off perhaps the worst start of his young career, goes for his 12th victory Saturday night. The Mets will counter with Mike Pelfrey, who has a career 0-4 mark with a 9.68 ERA in four starts at Chase Field. ... Diamondbacks pitchers have 28 RBIs, by far the most in the majors. ... Bay has reached safely in 14 straight games. ' ' '
