Tight Ends, Offensive & Defensive Line, Linebacker’s and Secondary to Watch at the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine

By Tyler Lurkins

Mock Drafts

TE

1. Blake Bell-The stats are pouring in on Bell already. He’s a large, athletic, playmaker and could surprise many as the 2nd TE off of the board.

2. Jesse James-Along with impressive size, James can also block. James is more along the lines of a complete, three down player, that can be moved all over the field.

OL

1. Ereck Flowers/Andrus Peat-One of the first reports that Scherff wouldn’t be highly sought as a LT came here at www.newnfldraft.com. Peat and Flowers will go toe to toe for the honors to be the first O lineman off of the board. Scouting reports are so varied that many mockers left these two dwindling at the bottom of the 1st. Now one or both have a shot at the top 10.

2. Cameron Erving-Erving is already turning heads. Some saw him as a high 2nd round guy. He’s now almost a lock in the 1st with his tenacity and athleticism. Keep an eye on him because he could now be a top 15 guy, already leaping above Scherff, and maybe Peat.

3. Rob Crisp-This is a weak draft. Teams will pass on LT’s for a more valued pass rusher or CB. Crisp has the tangibles, and could sneak into the bottom of the 2nd.

4. Ali Marpet-If you’re not following Marpet’s headlines already, you should probably stop reading this article. He’s this years small school darling.

DL

1. Grady Jarrett-Jarrett is highly undervalued. Not as athletic as Aaron Donald, but Jarrett is a smaller framed bowling ball who shoots the gaps well. There’s a ton of DT’s in this draft, but Jarrett could land himself in the top 50 picks.

2. Frank Clark-It’s hard to overlook the fact that Clark was booted from Ann Arbor. With a combine invite, Clark is obviously still on the radars of many NFL execs. A great combine could make him relevant, though his domestic abuse charge may be hard to forgive these days.

3. Lynden Trail-Trail is a versatile player who is a schematic nightmare. He’s a long bodied athelete who can be moved around the field. A team with few draft needs could make Trail a top 60 pick.

LB

1. Vic Beasley/Dante Fowler/Shane Ray-Of these players will be the 1st pass rusher in the draft. Fowler is flashing signs of excellence since the end of the season. Beasley has been a monster and now is much bigger than expected. Ray is just a machine. This will be the best battle at the combine!

2. Randy Gregory-This list is comprised of players who are fun to watch, or that will sneak up on you…except Gregory. He’s on this list due to his size. One considered a top 3 pick, at 235 lbs, he may not make the top 20 with a bad combine. What no one is talking about yet is his medical charts, which combined with his size, could kick him into the 2nd round.

3. Obum Gwachum-I had the opportunity to see a whopping TWO Oregon St games on TV. Anyone who watched a Beaver game saw Gwachum. The guy is all over the field and is a phenomenal athlete.

Secondary

1. Shaq Thompson-The most athletic and versatile player in this draft, Thompson was smaller than advertised. Could his 40 time make him a RB? Could teams work him out as a SS considering the weak market? Are his seek and destroy instincts good enough to make him the top 43 LB off the board?

2. Jalen Collins-Collins is kind of a household name, dabbling between the 2nd and 3rds of most mocks. If he measures at 6’1” or more, and run a sub 4.45 40 yard dash, Collins could a top 25 pick.

3. Tevin McDonald-I’m not sure where scouts have him, or even if he will be drafted. However, McDonald is a special safety who has the ability to play right away. If teams overlook his baggage, and with a decent combine, McDonald could have some heads turning.

4. Quinton Rollins-Rollins a highly aggressive prospect. Teams like really like the guy, but he’s only played 1 year of college football. A great combine could put him the top 50 range.

5. Ibraheim Campbell-Campbell dominated the Sr. Bowl coming off a very solid collegiate career. The S position is very weak, and Campbell will have a moment to shine.

Quarterback’s, Wide Receiver’s and Running Backs to Watch at the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine

By Tyler Lurkins

Mock Drafts

Quarterback’s:

1. Jameis Winston-Already questions of his shoulder have been released. If Jameis fails to impress, a monumental slide could be seen in the draft.

2. Marcus Mariota-The big reason to watch is a possible leap over Winston as the top QB. Can he work the pocket? Can he be accurate? Can he progress through targets?

3. Garrett Grayson-Grayson compares very close Kirk Cousins. Coming from a complete pro offense, Grayson is QB who can play immediately in the NFL and manage a game. Note he’s a game manager, not a game changer. Could he sneak in the 1st for a QB needy team?

Running Back’s:

1. Tevin Coleman-The RB class has some big names this year. Coleman may be a dark horse candidate to be the 1st RB off of the board. A big time punisher with a second gear, Coleman mowed down the competition behind a very poor line. If Coleman were at Georgia or Wisconsin, he would be a household name already. The 40 time is make or break for him.

2. Kenny Hilliard-Recently, LSU backs have been selected early and often. They are big, they are fast, they are highly productive. Hilliard is no different.

3. Braylon Heard-Once considered one of the best high school backs in the country, Heard saw mixed results in college. This guy is fast and reliable. A perfect scat back, or one cut back, a good combine could lead to nice draft statuts.

Wide Receiver’s:

1. Dorial Green Beckham-DGB is already a household name. Displaying a massive body, if the speed and hands are there, is a first round guy? The biggest knock is his game intelligence. Very much a “go and get it” receiver, can he read an NFL playbook?

2. Nelson Agholor-USC has developed some very credible WR’s. Agholor is being displaced due to a down year and the explosiveness of Cooper and Kevin White. Not a big guy, but Algholor’s ability may elevate him to the 2nd round.

3. Stefon Diggs-Diggs is a flat out game changer. Already bragging 10 inch hands, and a decent frame, Diggs could be tops on an NFL radar. Think Percy Harvin.

4. Devon Smith-Smith is getting a ton of press because he’s a track star. Speed sells in the NFL, but if Smith shows the hand and route skills, Smith could sneak it as the 3rd receiver on the board.

5. Cam Worthy-Worthy is stout player. A good 40 time could see his stock soar.

6. Mario Alford-Again, speed sells, and West Virginia wideouts are always well coached and explosive.

2015 NFL Free Agency Predictions by Team

By Hansen
1. Tampa Bay Bucs: Allegedly unhappy with their defensive line and secondary, I’m guessing they try to plug those holes in free agency. Daniel Iupati, OG, 49ers. Kyle Wilson, CB, Jets. Derek Newton, OG, Cowboys. Jonathan Scott, OT, Falcons. Marcus Gilchrist, S, San Diego Chargers.

2. Tennessee Titans: Brian Hoyer, QB, Browns. Bilal Powell, RB, Jets, Michael Crabtree, WR, 49ers, George Selvie, DE, Cowboys, Anthony Spencer, DE, Dallas Cowboys.

3. Oakland Raiders: The Lions’ monstrous defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is at the top of their wish list but Suh supposedly wants to stay at Ford Field. Atlanta defensive end Cliff Mathews has potential as a pass rusher, something the Raiders desperately need. Kendrick Ellis, late of the Jets, could be a rotation player inside. New Coach Jack Del Rio built his defense around defensive tackles John Henderson and Marcus Stroud in Jacksonville. He also drafted Terence “pot roast” Knighton, who many expect to join him in Oakland. Michael Sam, DE, Cowboys. If the Raiders have a better third down rusher on the squad than Michael Sam, I certainly don’t know who he is. Perfect cultural fit for Sam, playing in the Bay Area, where in many neighborhoods Sam would not be a minority, but rather the straight players.

4. Jacksonville Jaguars: It seems almost certain that more Seattle Seahawks defensive veterans who played under Gus Bradley when he was defensive coordinator there will be coming to join the rebuilding process. With Seahawks OLB Malcolm Smith about to see his first contract expire, and the Jaguars needing an outside linebacker, it would seem to be an obvious fit. The Jaguars were thrifty last year so have a lot of cap money to also pursue Joe Barksdale, Rams OT, to address their dreadful right tackle position, Niles Paul, TE, Washington, and perhaps former Jets kick returner Leon Washington, an aging but still productive runner, and a Jacksonville native anyway. Orlando Franklin of the Broncos, who played at Miami, is the better fit in Jacksonville as he plays both tackle and guard. Pernell McPhee of the Ravens DL will probably be a target as well.

5. Washington whose name cannot be said: If RGIII is truly done in the nation’s capital, Brian Hoyer could certainly be in play there. I’m guessing the team will lose Brian Orakpo, in free agency, and therefore will try to replace him. Derrick Morgan, recently moved to OLB from DE with improved results, for the Titans, comes to mind. Colt McCoy has played well at QB and will probably be reesigned, at least as a backup. Trades possibly for Nick Foles, Mike Glennon, and Jay Cutler.

6. The New York Jets: Buster Skrine, CB, Browns. A guard to pursue is Clint Boling of the Bengals. The ageless Cory Redding, DT, Colts. Devon McCourty, Patriots. I think it will be a price war between the Jets, Giants, and Jaguars. Advantage to Jets as he played in Jersey at nearby Rutgers.

7. New York Giants: I think they will re-sign Daniel Fells, their productive tight end.

And I think they continue bringing in what seems like an endless string of inside linebackers, this year Rey Maugluga of the Bengals. 2015 may be the last Super Bowl run for Tom Coughlin so I’m guessing they put the franchise tag on Jason Pierre Paul.

8. Carolina Panthers: Jason Fox, OT, Dolphins, Roy Helu, RB, Washington. Randall Cobb, WR/KR, Green Bay Packers.

9. Minnesota Vikings: Re-sign Corey Wooten, DE. Sign CJ Spiller, RB, Bills.

10. Chicago Bears: Gerald McCoy, DT, Tampa Bay. Ryan Mallett, QB, Houston.

11. New Orleans Saints: Blaine Gabbert, QB, 49ers, possible trade for RGIII. Nate Irving, ILB, Denver Broncos.

12. St. Louis Rams: Stevan Ridley, RB, Patriots. Possible trade with Jets for Geno Smith.

13. Houston Texans: Jabaal Sheard, OLB, Browns. Of course, the Texans could sign any of the free agent quarterbacks out there or try to trade for Geno Smith or RGIII themselves.

14. Pittsburgh Steelers: I think they might actually take a swing at CB Darrell Reevis. Davon House, CB, Packers.

15. Cleveland Browns: Their defense has played well this year without a pass rush. I don’t think they risk that happening again next year and will sign whoever is the best pass rusher who is not actually given the franchise tag. Perhaps BJ Raji of Packers or Jerry Hughes, Bills. Colin McCarthy, ILB, Titans. Virgil Green, TE, Broncos. Whether they keep Brian Hoyer I think they go after a third quarterback, perhaps Tim Tebow, who will be available for the veterans minimum after his original contract expires in March. It’s too windy to pass in Cleveland anyway in the late season, might as well just run all the time. And since Tebow doesn’t drink alcohol or have sex, he will always be available when Johnny Manziel can’t play.

16. Baltimore Ravens: Re-sign their best receiver Torrey Smith. Probably re-sign RB Justin Forsett. May make a run at corner backs Kareem Jackson of Texans and Antonio Cromartie of Cardinals.

17. Kansas City Chiefs: Put the franchise tag on the NFL’s sack leader, OLB Justin Houston. Sign Clint Boling, OG, Bengals, Greg Little, WR, Cleveland, Miles Austin, WR, Cleveland.

18. San Francisco 49ers: Adrian Clayborn, DE, Tampa Bay. Darrell Reevis, CB, Patriots.

19. Dallas Cowboys: Re-sign RB Demarco Murray. Sign Da’Quan Bowers, DE, Tampa Bay, Brian Orakpo, DE/OLB Washington. Chimdi Chekwa, CB, Raiders. Re-sign Dez Bryant.

20. Atlanta Falcons: Malcolm Smith, OLB, Seahawks. I think new Coach Dan Quinn brings several Seahawks with him, such as Byron Maxwell. Also Kevin Williams, DT, Seahawks.

21. Miami Dolphins: re-sign TE Charles Clay. Sign James Carpenter, OT/OG, Seattle. Sign Percy Harvin, playmaker, after he’s cut by Jets. Brandon Graham, OLB, Eagles.

Re-sign Jared Odrick, DT.

22. San Diego Chargers: Re-sign Shareece Wright, CB. Sign Nate Washington, WR, Titans, Darren McFadden, RB, Raiders.

23. Indianapolis Colts: Stefen Wisniewski, C, Raiders. Nick Fairly, DT, Lions. Re-sign Darius Butler, CB. Re-sign Mike Adams, CB.

24. Detroit Lions: Quinton Carter, S, Denver Broncos. Re-sign Ndamukong Suh. JT Thomas, OLB, Jaguars. Resign Cassius Vaughn, CB.

25. Seattle Seahawks: Jake Locker, QB, Titans, Jordan Cameron, TE, Cleveland Browns.

26. Cincinnati Bengals: Rodney Hudson, C, Chiefs. Darryl Sharpton, ILB, Chicago Bears

27. Philadelphia Eagles: Antonio Cromartie, CB, Arizona, Taylor Mays, S, Cincinnati.

28. Green Bay Packers: Jacquizz Rodgers, RB, Atlanta. Re-sign Matt Flynn, QB, Re-sign or tag Bryan Buluga, OT.

29. Arizona Cardinals: Jeremy Maclin, WR, Philadelphia Eagles. Denarius Moore, WR, Oakland, Antrel Rolle, S, Giants. May try to trade for Tampa Bay QB Mike Glennon, the slow footed but rocket armed prospect, who they have been interested in for years. Brooks Reed, OLB, Houston Texans.

30. New England Patriots: Cecil Shorts, WR, Jaguars, Ryan Matthews, RB, San Diego, Kareem Jackson, CB, Houston. Julius Thomas, TE, Denver Broncos.

31. Denver Broncos: Re-sign Demaryius Thomas.

32. Buffalo Bills (No first round draft pick). Jimmy Clausen, QB, Bears. Trent Richardson, cut by Colts. David Harris ILB, Jets. Calvin Pace, OLB, Jets. Despite Rex’s ringing endorsement of EJ Manuel last week, veteran quarterbacks are going to be coming to upstate New York. How many is the issue. Christian Ponder perhaps from Vikings. Daniel Thomas, RB, Miami Dolphins.

Prospect Draft Rankings and Analysis

By Tyler Lurkins

Our Mock Drafts

I would like to begin by declaring I’m ranking these players by talent. Obviously in a draft situation, including my own mock, a team will reach or draft for need, rather than talent.

Also, this draft for the moment lacks the star power of drafts past. Once the top 15 are off the board, selections become a toss up. Seeing this, I’m only hitting who I feel are the top 20 prospects.

  1. Leonard Williams, DT, USC-Williams may be the best player in the draft. He doesn’t have the hype of Clowney, but may be the best defensive tackle the draft has seen in some time. Williams has an ideal size and frame, and has a great explosion and power to match. Really, Williams hasn’t shown many weaknesses. Being so dominant, he tends to get upright and lacks great technique, but that can be easily refined.

 

  1. Danny Shelton, DT, Washington-Shelton is simply a safe pick. He reminds me so much of Haloti Ngata. A 34 team can plug him at NT or DE. With his mammoth size, he overpowers his way into the backfield, and he will not have trouble handling NFL lineman.

 

  1. Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama-Fundamentally speaking, Cooper is the best WR in the game. What impresses me most is his game away from the ball. Cooper is a solid blocker and will finds his way to the middle of the action at all times. The big question will be his workouts. What if he measures under 6’1” and 210 lbs.? In the 40 yard dash can Cooper run under a 4.45? If he can’t some teams may shy away from him as the receiver class is extremely deep and talented this year.

 

  1. Randy Gregory, DE, Nebraska-Watching any Nebraska games, Gregory is the most exciting player to watch on the field. Naturally his explosion and tenacity, combined with his 6’6” frame, will force any scout to drool. At 245 lbs., Gregory may get knocked around to bit. And with a small amount of injury concerns, Gregory could slip a tad in the draft.

 

  1. Shane Ray, LB, Missouri-Ray only makes the top 5 for his ability to play a 34 pass rusher. As a 43 end, Ray may not stack up due to his compact size. Ray is the best 34 linebacker in this draft, and will see his stock elevate as such.

 

  1. Vic Beasley, LB, Clemson-Beasley is the biggest disruptor in the draft. Always in the backfield, Beasley owned ACC offensive lines. The most impressive trait about Beasley is he never quits on a play. Compare Beasley to Melvin Ingram. Their small stature will force some teams to think twice about drafting them. However, when Ingram is in the game, opposing offenses fear the Charger defense. Beasley will need a 34 team looking for a LB to be drafted high.

 

  1. Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon-A natural leader with extreme athleticism, Mariota owned college football in 2014. Not only does his arm take center stage, he throws a nice, tight, and easy ball. His touch needs a bit of work, but the accuracy is workable on the NFL level. The biggest knock is obviously the scheme Mariota played in. If he can sit for a year or two and develop, Mariota will be a solid pro, much better than the highly regarded, and comparable, Koepernick. Yet coaches picking in the top 10 often will not have tenure to see Mariota develop.

 

  1. Dante Fowler, DE/LB, Florida-Fowler will not see the hype of the other prospects. Many Draftniks see the under impressive numbers and politely discard Fowler. Face it, Florida played poorly but Fowler was a big reason they slipped into a bowl. His numbers are lacking due to his frequent position changes. Fowler dropped into coverage, set the corner, stood up and linebacker, and even slid inside to the tackle spot. However his versatility will be his biggest upside. Fowler’s downside will be his inability to “wow” scouts. He does everything great, but not spectacularly.

 

  1. Landon Collins, S, Alabama-Was there a more dominant and feared safety in all of football this year? The difference between Collins and every other Alabama strong safety is the fact Collins can cover. Roaming from sideline to sideline, and up and down the line, Collins drops absolute hammers on ball carriers. The highly touted aggressiveness will also be Collins’ Achilles heel. He needs to settle in and play the ball, games are not won with highlight tackles. Also keep a careful eye on the shoulder of Collins. If team Doctors feel his shoulder soreness will be chronic, Collins could wind up at the bottom of the 1st

 

  1. Marcus Peters, CB, Washington-Peters is far and away the best corner in this draft, and much better than many we have seen since Patrick Peterson. I like the fact that Peters never gets beat deep. He rarely bites on a WR’s moves, and ignores the QB’s fake pumps. Structurally, he has good size and muscle. Peters took on, and beat, the PAC 12’s top receivers. For now, I choose to ignore his character issues. Under Sarkisian, Peters never found himself in the dog house. Chris Peterson, who preaches tough discipline, never meshed well with Peters. In the NFL, Peters’ attitude will be embraced, especially when reined in by a veteran team.

 

  1. Brandon Scherff, T/G, Iowa-Scherff may be the best O lineman in all of college football, but he lacks many qualities. Coming from Iowa, the mecca of offensive lineman, Scherff shows great strength, fundamentals, and top notch knowledge. Problem number one is, though he will be a serviceable lineman, he won’t be an all pro. The length and athleticism just isn’t there with Scherff. The other big issue is the massive leg injury that required surgery. As a guard, Scherff will be one of the best in football. As a left tackle, Scherff will be a solid starter that will have a quiet, 10 year career as a starter.

 

  1. Jameis Winston, QB, Florida St.-I am absolutely positive that 90% of the people reading this will disagree with this spot. Winston may very well go #1, but carefully watch the film. Let’s toss character issues out of the window, remembering that the woman whom accused him of sexual assault is starring in a documentary that will air on CNN. Focus on Winston’s predecessors, Christian Ponder and E.J. Manuel. Both played in the same offense as Winston. Both with highly regarded prospects. I will give you this, neither held a candle to Winston. Of those three, Manuel had the best rating, and is fading from the NFL quickly. Watch the sideline, Winston is publicly challenging coaches, and that won’t change. His arrogance and lack of discipline may unravel him. I like the speed of Winston’s throw, but he has a very difficult throwing motion. Scouts say he sees the field well, but visibly reacts slowly, using his rocket arm to squeeze the ball in. This team did not dominate like the 2013 team, and Winston never became the star that could own the game. Nor did Winston have a mammoth receiver like Kelvin Benjamin to bail him out. Alright, now let’s throw in the character issues. Where do we sit now? If a team wants to put a leash on Winston, that’s fine. Let’s look at the teams drafting for a moment. Jacksonville, Oakland, Washington, Chicago, Atlanta, and the Giants have no need for Winston. The Jets can’t afford a failure, and really don’t have enough pieces to for Winston to be comfortable. Should Tampa and Tennesse pass due to the dominance of the top 5 in these rankings, St. Louis is the only team left in the top 10.

 

  1. Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin-Clearly one of the most dominating backs in collegiate history, Gordon will be given a strong look by many teams. Like many scouts, I am leery of running backs. The vision and burst of Gordon is unmatched and will transfer perfectly to the NFL. Gordon is a three down back because he possesses good blocking skills and excellent hands. I’m concerned about a couple of things. True speed could be an issue for Gordon. On tape he is explosive and pulls away from defenders, but can he hit the extra gear against NFL caliber players? Playing behind a bunch of mountains against a weak schedule, Gordon racked up stats, but on too many carries. Ohio St. completely shut Gordon down, and that team is laden with NFL first day picks.

 

  1. Andrus Peat, T, Stanford-If you google left tackle, Peat’s picture pops up. On an eye test, Peat is the guy you want protecting your QB. The strength is there, the footwork looks good, and the tenacity is a can’t miss. Can Peat redirect the speed of a Robert Quinn? Will Peat be bowled over by J.J. Watt? Point being, he may lack the true athleticism to play the position well. Another question mark is the fact he is from Stanford. Yankey and Jonathan Martin were very similar to Peat. Martin is a disappointment and Yankey is riding the pine. Are Stanford O lineman nothing more than scheme fits?

 

  1. Shaq Thompson, LB, Washington-All 32 teams would line up to sign Lavonte David. However, all 32 teams would probably pass on Lavonte David in the 1st round for a second time. Thompson is an amazing athlete and is one of the most gifted LB’s in college football. The WLB position just isn’t highly valued in the NFL, and neither is Thompson’s size. On talent alone, Thompson is a top 10 guy, but you have to cut him down for his size. One redeeming quality to watch, could a great combine translate to Thompson playing SS in the NFL? Teams want a menacing presence like the safeties in Seattle have.

 

  1. Cameron Erving, O line, Florida St.-The NFL highway is paved with boom and bust tackles drafted simply because of athleticism. First, Erving was a top 5 prospect last year. This year he looked disoriented at times, often making poor first steps and bad reads. Moving to C, Erving destroyed all defensive lineman. Teams yearn for a man of this size with this much athleticism. He is a plug and play prospect at C, G, and RT, and can be groomed to be a LT. Let’s not forget that Erving was a recruited, and played, as a defensive tackle. Sure we have witnessed busts like Jason Smith, but Tryron Smith was also regarded as a guy with only potential, much like Erving.

 

  1. Alvin “Bud” Dupree, LB/DE, Kentucky-Dupree and Utah’s Nate Orchard are hard to place. The numbers are not there for Dupree. Kentucky faced so many read option teams that Dupree never saw the chance to hit the backfield. On tape, he’s often double teamed with a running back chipping him. Is Dupree truly dominant, or just the best player on a less than decent team? Going simply on news reports and work out rumors, Dupree seems to play the part of a highly touted athlete.

 

  1. La’el Collins, G, LSU-As a left tackle, Collins more than held his own. At the snap, Collins locks on to his assignment and blocks through the whistle. As his typical with his boxy size, Collins is a tremendous run blocker. After the success of Zach Martin, teams will appreciate Collins as an immediate starter at G. The largest bonus is his ability to play any position on the line, and play it very well. As a franchise LT, Collins simply doesn’t have the length or dominate footwork.

 

  1. Kevin White, WR, W. Virginia-White compares very decently to Julio Jones. He has that big, solid body and unrivaled speed. The game film is there, White rarely drops balls and flat out takes over in clutch situations. White could be the big sleeper of the draft. A good combine could really elevate his status. Of course, like many spread receivers, the footwork and route running will be huge red flags. Those major flags are hard to coach and takes time to develop at a pro level.

 

  1. Nate Orchard, LB/DE, Utah-Many decent players are left, but Orchard is silently gaining momentum. Orchard really hits the edge well. The most impressive aspect is his balance. Diagnosing plays quickly, Orchard can idle his motor, set the edge, and attack the run game also. Orchard stole the show against UCLA and Stanford, and attacked the ball well against Oregon, Arizona, and USC. The combine is where Orchard needs to make his hay. I believe in him as a prospect, but I want to see if he has NFL strength. Can he shrug off a pulling guard or a NFL fullback.

 

Best of the Rest-The next ten prospects can easily be moved around anywhere after pick 14, with little argument.

Trae Waynes-A shutdown corner in the big 10, Waynes needs to show more speed and stability before I take him in the top 20.

T.J. Clemmings, T, Pittsburgh-Clemmings is solid, but too “wiry” to be a dominant LT. I prefer him at LG with the option to be a backup at LT and RT.

Eddie Goldman, DT, Florida St.-Goldman is a great player. He will be a fine NFL player. I really see him as more of a NT in the NFL. I’d like to see him more muscular in trim, as his large shape could lead to durability concerns.

Ereck Flowers, G/T, Miami-Flowers is a solid player and superb leader. I see him as a dominant G or RT, unless he is placed in a zone scheme. I see a lot of Brandon Albert in him.

Sammie Coates, WR, Auburn-What’s not to like about Coates? Any team would save a starting spot for him. Yet Coates gets a case of the dropsies too much for my taste.

Tevin Coleman-Coleman is a diamond in the rough. He is the one back that can literally carry a team forward. Behind one of the worst lines in college football, Coleman constantly produced.

Micheal Bennett, DT, Ohio St.-Bennett was one of the most destructive lineman in college football. Scouts will really sink him because of his tweener size. Best suited as a 5 tech end, Bennett will slide because 5 tech ends are undervalued.

Devin Smith, WR, Ohio St.-I’m going to cheat with Smith. I feel he isn’t a first round prospect. However, speed sells and Smith has speed to burn. Speed will be the chariot Smith rides into the 1st round.

Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia-If you witnessed Gurley on game day, you witnessed one of the best backs since Adrian Peterson. Knee surgery is knee surgery, and backs are a dime a dozen. I would like to think a team will gamble on Gurley’s excellence in the 1st round.

Bernardrick McKinney, LB, Ole Miss-McKinney is a beast. He gets through gaps, gets off blocks, and make plays. The bad word is out though, McKinney probably isn’t going to be a cover guy and that hurts his stock.

5 Players whose Senior Bowl increased their NFL Draft Stock

With the NFL season almost over and the Super Bowl XLIX right around the corner. Spring’s NFL Draft will be tough and very tight. It will need players to put in as much effort as they can. Until they show their worth, in their performance, they may not be selected. One of the latest additions to the Senior Bowl, Quarterback Bryan Bennett got a red eye when he had a collision with Nick Marshall. This agitated his former coach to get him his protective gear from Mobile.

Some few players were fascinating throughout the week in the game, the interviews and the practice. The North won 34-13 over the South. From the amazing and interesting game, here are 5 of the most impressing players that boosted their draft prospect in the NFL.

1. Danny Shelton

Weighing 343lbs, and standing 6ft, 2 inches tall, Danny Shelton has been likened to the defensive tackle, Haloti Ngata, who plays for Baltimore All-Pro. When playing in Mobile, Danny Shelton received an enthusiastic review for his ability to shack blocks and his adjacent movement. Compared to the late Reggie White, who was super amazing, Shelton executed a more amusing display. When all stats are displayed, he could be the all-time best defensive tackle.

2. Clive Walford

Miami has been proud of top players over the past 15 odd years, with the likes of Jeremy Shockey, Jimmy Graham, Greg Olsen, and Kellen Winslow Jr. Clive Walford entered the week as almost the best tight end in the NFL Draft and could be the next big thing in the back line. Walford gave out a great performance in the practice, and his quickness is one thing that was recognized. He was amazing, and tough, even with a toe injury in the Saturday game.

3. Ameer Abdullah

Ameer Abdullah achieved the MVP credits, which came with the all-purpose totaling to 113 yards, which were only covered in 11 touches. Abdullah gave out a great performance, which aroused one that was given by Matt Forte. Forte captured the MVP of the game back in 2008. Abdullah has the ability of giving out a great performance like CJ Spiller and Darren Sproles. He weighs 198lbs and stands 5ft 8 inches tall is athletic and super fast.

4. Sammie Coates

Coates stands at 6ft, 2 inches tall, and weighs 213 pounds. He surprised the teams in the NFL when he reported to the Senior Bowl, weighing 10 pounds more than when he played at Auburn. He may not be the exact copy of Terrel Owen, though he is stronger, which could help him. He made an amazing touchdown on Saturday, however, he could not get his second foot at the corner of the dead zone.

5. Kevin White

There has been a search for a tall and strong player at the corner to replace Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman. Even though Kevin White is slightly smaller than the expected height, standing at 5ft, 9 inches, and weighing 180 pounds, he still pulled it off. His genuine ball skills and his energy are the things that amused the scouts.

These are the top 5, most amazing players that were overly fascinating in the Saturday game. With their performance, they boosted their NFT draft prospects. Even though others were impressive, but these were the most eye catching.

2015 NFL Quarterback Needy Teams with Predictions

by Tyler Lurkins

Tennessee-Whisenhunt works well with QB’s. Mettenberger and Locker will remain there and he will bring in a veteran to compete. 2015 STARTER: Jake Locker

Tampa Bay-2015 STARTER-Jameis WInston

Redskins-RG3 remains, but a Matt Flynn or Shaun Hill will be brought in to compete and mentor. 2015 STARTER-Robert Griffin

New York Jets-The Jets will go wild. They’ll trade up for Mariota or they’ll make a huge trade to get a QB like Nick Foles or Jay Cutler. It’s doubtful Geno is given a shot without viable competition. 2015 STARTER-Marcus Mariota

Chicago-It’s doubtful the team can get anything more than a 4th round pick for Cutler. 2015 STARTER-Jay Cutler

Cleveland-Hoyer isn’t the answer, Manziel needs to be cut. 2015 STARTER-Kirk Cousins

St. Louis-The Rams have no excuse not to draft a QB, but won’t have a shot at one in the 1st round. This leaves Bradford to control the team for at least one more year. 2015 STARTER-Sam Bradford

Buffalo-Orton is out. Manuel is a failure thus far. Cutler is definitely in the mix with a new owner, IF Foles is available, the Bills can’t pay the price tag. 2015 STARTER-Ryan Nassib

Houston-Houston is a playoff team with a decent quarterback. Savage may still be the answer, but he needs one more year. 2015 STARTER-Ryan Fitzpatrick.

2015 NFL Quarterback Situations

By Tyler Lurkins

Without any question, the most valuable player on a football squad needs to be a quarterback. It’s hard to win championships without a competent signal caller.

Many teams are searching desperately to find a quality leader for their offense. However, the draft is especially weak, the free agency market may be weaker, and it doesn’t appear that a hot backup is available for trade.

This is a list of possible quarterback options for NFL teams in need.

2015 NFL QB Draft Prospects

NFL FREE AGENTS QB’s

Brian Hoyer-Hoyer really hasn’t done anything special. With such a horrid market, maybe the leadership Hoyer brings will be welcomed by a NFL team.

Mark Sanchez-Sanchez has taken teams to the…Sanchez has been the quarterback on teams that have been to the playoffs. It shouldn’t be surprising to see a team take a flyer on Sanchez to compete for a starting spot.

Jake Locker-Locker still hasn’t shown his full potential. At times, he looks very decent, but has major inconsistency and injury concerns.

Ryan Mallett-Mallett will intrigue teams simply because of the coaches that he’s been under.

AVAILABLE VIA TRADE

Jay Cutler-Not a soul questions Cutler’s talent. If a team wants his contract, it’s almost certain the Bears will let Cutler move on. If Mike Shanahan lands a coaching spot, Cutler trade rumors will begin flying.

Nick Foles-Foles is the leader in Philadelphia, but never rule out the Chip Kelly factor. For the right price, Foles could very well be on another team. Though Foles gets the Eagles wins, he still isn’t the wow factor that Chip wants. This draft contains read option stars that most NFL teams pass on. Hundley, Zach Prescott, Shane Carden, Cody Fajardo, Brandon Bridges, Chuckie Keeton, Blake Sims, and/or Taylor Kelly could wind up Eagles.

Kirk Cousins-Cousins did will under the Shanahans and Cleveland has extra picks. Cousins didn’t impress under Gruden, but Cousins is still a better option on some teams.

Matt Schaub-A former household name, Schaub has diminished into almost nothing. The reason he makes the list, Mike Shanahan and Gary Kubiak are interviewing for coaching gigs. Schaub knows the system well and could be brought in to compete or mentor.

Ryan Nassib-Nassib was once highly rated, and is in a very disciplined Tom Coughlin system.

Aaron Murray-Murray’s football knowledge is respected. Murray could be valuable with teams implementing the west coast offense.

NFL Draft QB Prospects

By Tyler Lurkins

Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State

Winston shows upside as an athlete and leader. Does he possess the maturity to be given the keys to a high powered offense? Winston has experience in a pro style offense, and that’s a huge plus. Yet his accuracy waivers, he looks down his receivers, and his confidence waives at times.

Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon

Mariota is dynamic athlete with no character concerns and excellent intelligence. The tangibles are all there for Mariota. Obviously he has zero experience under center. He doesn’t understand how to read a secondary. Many draftniks acknowledge Mariota is a talent, but with most coaches only being given three years to succeed, will a staff be able to develop Mariota in time to save their jobs?

Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA

Once thought to be a can’t miss prospect, Hundley never improved to be a solid star. The highly regarded Jim Mora couldn’t develop Hundley into an impressive star. Hundley has the frame and arm for the NFL, and certainly passes the eye test. An NFL team running several read option plays may find a great talent in Hundley. However, his poor pocket play and accuracy may keep Hundley from being a plug and play starter, right away, in the NFL.

Garrett Grayson, QB, Colorado State

Who? Grayson may be the sleeper in this draft. Grayson excelled in Jim McElwain’s offense and led Colorado St. to a great record. His arm is sharp, he can read a defense, and works well in the pocket. The glaring con against Grayson is his lack of playing top talent. With a condensed play book and a heavy run based offense, Grayson could step in and manage a game in the NFL.

Connor Cook, QB, Michigan State

Cook is on record saying he will return to college. With such a weak draft class, he could change his mind. Cook would represent the safest quarterback in the draft should he enter.

Gunner Kiel, QB, Cincinnati

Remember Kiel rated higher the Jameis Winston three years ago. Kiel has not declared, and it’s doubtful he will, but he shows great knowledge of a pro system. Also Kiel is highly regarded amongst NFL scouts.

Week 16 Power Rankings

By Tyler Lurkins

Check out mock drafts

1. New England-The Pats host a solid Bills team and close the year against the Jets.  There

shouldn’t be a reason they finish the season anywhere but on top.

2. Denver-Denver travels to a play a tough Cincy team.

3. Arizona-Another big win, but another injured QB.  The Cardinals are on cruise control, but still

face Seattle and San Fran to end the year.

4. Detroit-Detroit holds the division for now.  Who cares about next week, it’s all about the week

17 matchup versus Green B ay.

5. Green Bay-There is no excuse for a loss BUT, Jordy Nelson did botch a couple of easy balls.  The

Bucs should be a tune up game next week, for the real matchup against the Lions on week 17.

6. Seattle-The sky is the limit for the Seahawks.  They’re finally healthy and rolling along.

7. Indianapolis-Indy keeps winning, albeit unconvincingly.   The head down to Dallas for an

offensive display.

8. Pittsburgh-Pittsburgh is still a team that wavers.  A big win against the Chiefs could cement the

team moral into the playoffs.

9. Dallas-Dallas may have ripped into the Eagles, but they did surrender a ton of points.  This team

needs to get both sides of the ball humming at the same time.

10. Kansas City-A good team will have KC figured out, especially since Smith can’t find a receiver in

the end zone.  For the Chiefs to smell the playoffs, they’ll need to topple Pittsburgh and San

Diego.

11. Philadelphia-The good news for the Eagles is they play Washington and the Giants.  The bad

news remains that Sanchez is currently the QB. 

12. Cincinnati-The Bengals should be thrilled Cleveland couldn’t shut down the run game, because

Dalton looked fairly miserable in the passing game.  A middle of the pack team, the playoffs are

bleak for Cincy.

13. Baltimore-The Ravens are still in the hunt, and face the Texans and Browns to close out the year.

14. Buffalo-Buffalo has really played terrific this year.  Correcting a couple of mistakes in prior

games could have had them in the playoffs.  For now, they’ll look to close out strong against the

Raiders and New England, who will likely have their starters benched.

15. San Diego-San Diego has battled, and have won the games they should have, but hang on by a

fingernail to a playoff berth. 

16. Miami-The Fins choked away the playoffs this year.  They host a surprising Vikings team, and a

subpar Jets team to shoot for .500.

17. Houston-Houston exceeded most expectations for the year.  If they add a couple of pieces in the

secondary, and a QB, the Texans will be very potent in 2015.

18. Carolina-Carolina had the poll position in the division for now.  Yet they have to topple a tough

Cleveland D and division foe Atlanta.

19. Cleveland-The Browns would have benefited from the veteran presence of Hoyer.  Manziel

looked like a Pop Warner QB.  The Browns end the season in tough fashion, needing to go

through Carolina and Baltimore.

20. Minnesota-The Vikings silently stay competitive in every game, growing every snap of the game. 

They look to battle to .500 against the Dolphins and Bears.

21. St. Louis-The D is solid, against subpar QB’s.  The Rams really need to seek out a QB, not named

Bradford, next year.

22. San Francisco-It’s not the game plan, it’s the holier than though attitude of Kaepernick  that is

destroying the Niners.  Their playoff hopes are officially over.

23. New Orleans-If the Saints can blow past the Falcons and Bucs, they have a shot at squeaking into

the playoffs.

24. New York Giants-A decent win against the struggling Redskins, but the transitioning Giants still

face St. Louis and Philly.

25. Atlanta-Injuries and poor play derailed the Falcons all year.  They’ll need to retool next year.

26. Chicago-Another poor showing by Chicago may lead to new leadership being brought in.  After

an embarrassing game to the Saints, the Bears get the Lions and the Vikings.

27. New York Jets-A little win against the Titans won’t save the Jets from the bottom of the barrel. 

They’ll look to add a QB for next season.

28. Washington-Sure the Skins have issues at QB, but they main issue is the horrid defense.  It’s

time for a change in coordinators and scheme.

29. Tampa Bay-Bad news for the Buccos, they have to take on an angry Packer team, followed by an

explosive Saints team.

30. Jacksonville-A close look at Jacksonville does show a very solid root base.  The can close the

season with two winnable games versus the Titans and Texans.

31. Oakland-Oakland looked decent for a half, and the train came off the rails against the Chiefs. 

Another disappointing year for the Raiders.

32. Tennessee-The Titans get the bottom of the rankings after a loss to the hapless Jets.

NFL Power Rankings for end of week 14

By Hunter Stewart

 

1.  Green Bay Packers- The defense has been playing better and the offense is running on all cylinders. At this time I would say the Green Bay Packers have to be the super bowl favorites.

2. New England- The Patriots every year start a little shaky and then take off. The offense once again is the strength but all together they are a very very good team.

3. Denver – The Broncos may not be the 3rd best team in the NFL but they are really good and even when Peyton doesn’t play well they still are very good on offense.

4. Dallas – This may be a little high… but with Demarco Murray and Dez Bryant this team has enough talent.

5.  Seattle – The Seahawks are defensive minded and their offense is good enough to win it all.

6. Arizona – They keep getting by with average quarterback play. I don’t know that they will end this high but they deserve to be this high at this time.

7. Indianapolis- They flash greatness and also flash very mediocre play. It depends on what team shows up.

8.  Philadelphia- The Eagles have a good coach and scheme. I don’t know how far they will go with Sanchez but Chip is doing well.

9.Pittsburgh  – The Steelers are playing well lately and so is Big Ben. This team could end up surprising people.

10. Detroit – The Lions have a good defense and a good enough offense with some run presence.

11. Miami- The Dolphins are great some weeks and not so much on others.

12. San Diego – The Chargers go as Rivers goes -

13. Cincinnati- Earlier in the year they were considered the top team… now they are middle of the pack.

14.Kansas City- The Chiefs have a good run game but Alex Smith limits them

15. San Francisco- So much talent but they cannot put it all together.

16. Atlanta- The Falcons are in the playoff race they just have to keep winning.

17. Baltimore- Good team with potential but not great.

18. Cleveland- The Browns are good some weeks. Hoyer limits them vastly.

19. Houston- The Texans are a good team but with Fitzpatrick at the QB position they aren’t going anywhere.

20. New Orleans- They are such a weird team because they have a ton of offensive talent but cannot win games. Their defense is very bad.

21. Minnesota- The Vikings have a rookie QB their time is the future not now.

22. St. Louis- The Rams are good enough to beat bad teams and stay in games.

23. Buffalo – They may beat the Raiders but other then that I think they will lose out .

24. Chicago- The Bears have a ton of talent but are just a bad team.

25. Carolina- Like many of these other teams they have a lot of the pieces but can’t win game .

27. New York Giants- The Giants are not very good but can beat bad teams.

27-32. Washington, Tampa Bay,Tennessee, Jacksonville, New York Jets, Oakland- These 5 teams are the bottom of the bottom and I don’t want to have to specifically rank them. All of them are bad.
