Fox Sports' Adam Caplan doesn't believe the Broncos will consider LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson with the No. 2 draft pick.

A star-studded, one-of-a-kind autograph party highlights Saturday’s list of pre-game activities as LSU hosts its National L Club Spring Game in Tiger Stadium.
The autograph party, featuring numerous All-Americans and both past and current Tigers in the NFL, will take place starting at 1 p.m. in Lot A at Tiger Stadium.
A commemorative autograph poster, featuring all 58 LSU All-Americans will be given away to fans at the autograph session. In order to accommodate everyone, fans are asked to only have one item for the autograph session.
“This is a one-of-a-kind event,” LSU assistant athletic director for marketing Craig Pintens said. “To be able to assemble this many former All-Americans and NFL players in one setting is a tribute to what LSU football means to these guys. We are trying to grow our spring game into a day-long event, one where the entire family can come out and really experience all of the things unique about LSU. We think this is a great opportunity to come out with your family and enjoy a great day on the LSU campus capped off with a preview of the 2011 Tigers.”
Kickoff for the National L Club Spring Game is set for 3 p.m. Admission to the game is free and fans can enter Tiger Stadium through Portal A on the west side of the stadium or through gates 10 and 11 on the east side. Gates open at 1 p.m.
