Christian McCaffrey and Leonard Fournette made headlines the past few days, when they announced they won’t be playing in their teams’ bowl games. Instead, they’ll focus on the next chapter: the NFL Draft. It’s hard to blame them – both are battling injuries – for wanting to avoid suffering a career-threatening injury, or simply one that would hurt their draft stock. All they have to do is look at what happened to Jaylon Smith in the Fiesta Bowl last season for a worst-case scenario.
The New York Giants added one former Jets player early in the offseason, signing Brandon Marshall to a two-year contract. A few weeks later, they signed one of Marshall’s former teammates, Geno Smith. With Ryan Nassib hitting free agency and failing to emerge as Eli Manning’s successor, the Giants felt it was necessary to find a new backup quarterback – and maybe Manning’s eventual replacement. “I can’t see why not,” Giants coach Ben McAdoo said of Smith taking Manning’s spot in the future.
The NFL Scouting Combine gets started Tuesday when players begin to arrive in Indianapolis. Workouts won’t start until Friday, which is when the top prospects will run the always-intriguing 40-yard dash. Chris Johnson’s record time of 4.24 seconds from 2008 still stands, but Adidas is trying to give the 300-plus players running the 40 added motivation to beat it. How? By giving anyone who breaks the record their own island.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
