In recent weeks, it appears the talk of the teams at the top of the draft passing on top quarterbacks has intensified to the point the Chiefs may need to be prepared for at least one of them to fall to the No. 23 pick in the first round.

Each brings a special story to Boston.

Of course, the final score — the reserves, who started with a 14-point lead, rallied for a 21-20 victory in the closing seconds — doesn’t matter much. The 15th and final spring practice for a Tigers team that is eager to build off a 12-2 season in 2013 was less about winning than it was about preparing to win.
