PROVIDENCE Jaquiski Tartt Jersey , R.I. (AP) —town council has voted to ask its departments to refrain from purchasing Nike products, one of a handful of local governments or agencies that have called for boycotts in recent weeks.The North Smithfield Town Council passed the resolution on a 3-2 vote Monday evening, Council President John Beauregard said. The resolution is nonbinding.Beauregard, a former state trooper, is upset with Nike’s decision to use former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in an ad campaign. The town’s administrator didn’t know of any specific Nike products that municipal departments are currently using.The American Civil Liberties Union of Rhode Island said the town could be held legally and financially liable for violating the First Amendment and told members of the council: “Just don’t do it.”The mayor of a New Orleans suburb recently rescinded a similar directive based on an attorney’s advice.Kenner Mayor Ben Zahn, a Republican, had issued a memo saying that Nike products could not be purchased for use at city recreation facilities. It also required the parks and recreation director to approve all athletic purchases by booster clubs using the facilities. The order prompted a protest that included three members of the NFL’s New Orleans Saints and hundreds of others.And Mississippi’s public safety chief said over the weekend that state police would no longer buy Nike products, saying that Nike doesn’t support law enforcement and the military. It wasn’t immediately clear how much gear the state police agency buys from Nike, though the department has bought shoes, shirts and tactical training uniforms from the company. Republican Gov. Phil Bryant lauded the decision.A Nike spokesman said Monday he couldn’t comment on the various governmental actions.Kaepernick began kneeling during the national anthem in 2016 to protest police brutality and social injustice.Beauregard said he proposed taking a stance in North Smithfield because he feels Kaepernick has been disrespectful toward police. He said it’s not about kneeling during the anthem.In a statement released after the vote, the ACLU of Rhode Island described the resolution’s passage over the objects of residents who opposed it as “shameful.”“By attacking the right to peacefully protest and refusing to recognize the racial injustice prompting it, the resolution shows a disdain for both freedom and equality,” the statement said. “Rhode Island is better than this.”Mel Kiper offers updated Top 25 Big Board heading into Week 4 of NFL season The San Francisco 49ers will reach the quarter point of their season this weekend when they travel to face the Los Angeles Chargers. The loss of Jimmy Garoppolo has people starting to look ahead to next year’s offseason and the 2019 NFL Draft. But, even without Garoppolo’s injury, the pre-draft process remains a pertinent part of the season.Last week, ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper released his updated Top 25 Big Board for 2019. His board has been fluid and steadily changing, which at this point in the season is completely normal and expected. Below, we will analyze and highlight some of the prospects that made it on Kiper’s big Board. We don’t know where the 49ers will be drafting next spring, but I have provided a short-list of prospects to keep a close eye on at positions of need.Mel Kiper’s Top 101. Nick Bosa, DE, Ohio State2. Ed Oliver, DT, Houston3. Devin White, LB, LSU4. Clelin Ferrell, DE, Clemson5. Rashan Gary, DT, Michigan6. Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson7. Greedy Williams Womens Joe Montana Jersey , CB, LSU8. Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama9. Jeffery Simmons, DT, Mississippi State10. Deandre Baker, CB, Georgia ***Let’s remember, that these prospects at merely draft-eligible and none have declared.Nick Bosa, DE, No. 19 - Ohio State6’4” - 263 lbs 1st on Kiper’s BoardThe new number one on Kiper’s big board is defensive end Nick Bosa out of Ohio State. When healthy, the majority agree that Bosa is probably the best overall player in the nation. Unfortunately, at the moment, Bosa is not healthy and just had successful core muscle surgery. Bosa is expected to make a full recovery, but at the moment remains out indefinitely with no timeframe to return. As long as Bosa can make a full recovery I still expect him to be top five overall pick in next year’s draft. He is the best pass rusher in the nation, and his volume of work speaks for itself. A pure blue-chip prospect that any team would be more than happy lining up on the defensive line for their squad next season and beyond.Ed Oliver, DT, No. 10 - Houston6’3” - 292 lbs. 2nd on Kiper’s Big BoardLet’s face it, if Oliver was eligible for last year’s draft, he would have been a top five overall selection — he is that good. His ability to create havoc and disruption along the line of scrimmage, and in the opponents backfield is amongst some of the best I have studied on film. As far as overall talent, I believe Oliver is currently the best draft eligible prospect in the nation. I declared him my early favorite to go number one overall. He is a blue-chip, plug-and-play defensive lineman who instantly upgrades any team’s defense.Andraez “Greedy” Williams, CB, No. 29 - LSU6’3” - 184 lbs. 7th on Kiper’s Big BoardThe best pure cornerback eligible for next year’s draft. Already this season, Williams has two interceptions, and has constantly put receivers on an island. His ball instincts and anticipation are amongst the best for defensive backs in the nation. Plays physical, and has speed to keep up with receivers on the deepest routes. Had an A+ performance against a top ten conference foe in Auburn and the best is still yet to come. Keep a close eye on Williams who is streaking closer and closer to a top ten overall pick.Jalen Jelks, DE, No. 7 - Oregon6’6” - 245 lbs.#18 on Kiper’s Big BoardWell, if you are in need of a pass rusher (I’m looking at you 49ers) Womens Bradley Pinion Jersey , this pass rushing class is shaping out to be a deep one, with high-end prospects. Jelks might not be getting the same publicity as Nick Bosa or Clelin Ferrell, but the Oregon Duck is putting together quite a resume. A true 4-3 defensive end, Jelks creates disruption along the line, and has steadily improved with each passing season. This season, Jelks has 2.5 sacks recored. He is strong against both the run and the pass. Has great size and length for the position. Be sure to catch Jelks in action. His arrow is only pointing up, and at the moment should hear his name called in the bottom half of the first round. N’Keal Harry, WR, No. 1 - Arizona State6’4” - 220 lbs. #24 on Kiper’s Big BoardHarry continues to climb up draft boards and has found a home in the top 25. A physical and dominant receiver, who is a matchup nightmare for defensive coordinators. Last season Harry had 82 receptions for 1,142 yards, and 8 touchdowns. This season already, Harry has found the house 4 times, and is averaging close to 15 yards per reception. Has the traits and abilities to become a future number one receiver at the next level. At the moment it is a fight between Harry and A.J. Brown as the WR1 in this draft class. I’ll give Harry the slight edge, and for now, looks to be a first round pick in next year’s draft.Prospects 49ers Fans Must Watch: *Nick Bosa, DE - Ohio State (#1)Clelin, Ferrell, DE - Clemson (#4)Greedy Williams, CB - LSU (#7)Deandre Baker, CB - Georgia (#10)Montez Sweat, DE - Mississippi State (#13)Raekwon Davis, DE - Alabama (#15)Jalen Jelks, DE - Oregon (#18)Marquise Brown, WR - Oklahoma (#19)Brian Burns, DE/OLB - Florida State (#23)N’Keal Harry, WR - Arizona State 9 (#24)A.J.
