Every year, a handful of under the radar prospects catch my eye and become my draft man crushes. This draft season, I’m especially intrigued by the remarkable defensive talents who receive little pub.   I’d be willing to pound the table for these guys. While they aren’t highly regarded by everyone in the draft community, I believe they will have excellent NFL careers.   Robert Nelson — Cornerback — Arizona State

Call me crazy, but I wouldn’t hesitate to use a second-round pick on Nelson. The Sun Devil defensive back is a smooth athlete who can really stick with his target. He reminds me of a less heralded version of TCU’s Jason Verrett, as both players do a great job limiting separation by the wideout.

Nelson also is a versatile defender, excelling in both man and zone coverage. In man, he uses his quickness and long arms to stick with (read more…)

Once hyped as the next big thing, Logan Thomas is now readily dismissed by a number of analysts.

After two very up & down seasons, it’s understandable why the excitement about the VaTech QB’s declined, but much of what’s said by his most ardent critics simply isn’t accurate.

The physical tools that once intrigued so many didn’t disappear — Thomas still possesses the ability to be an NFL quarterback, and a good one too.

Over the next couple pages, I’ll take a look at some of the more prominent NFL traits Thomas possesses.

Is Bridgewater a Bill O’Brien QB?

Written by Nick Page on February 5, 2014

Ever since Bill O’Brien was hired by the Texans, there’s been constant chatter about which of the draft’s signal callers best fits his offense. Increasingly, to the surprise of many, the talk has centered around signal callers not named Teddy Bridgewater.

The shift away from Teddy B. is in part due to O’Brien’s history and preference for quarterbacks with prototypical builds: his two most recent high porfile quarterbacks — Tom Brady and his hand-picked QB at Penn State, Christian Hackenberg — both sit in the 6’4”, 220-225 pound range. O’Brien himself has made comments about how he adores bigger QBs who can sit in the pocket and make all the throws.

In fact, while heading the Penn State program, O’Brien did not commonly recruit quarterbacks who were below the 6’3”, 200-lb. threshold. With all that in mind, members of the draft media have increasingly linked the Texans to UCF (read more…)
