Tannehill is a unique prospect in that he’s a redshirt senior with only 20 games of starting experience at quarterback – due to playing wide receiver at the beginning of his collegiate career (and playing receiver at high level, no less). Moved to quarterback midway through his junior season. Overall, a fundamentally sound quarterback who needs to clean just a few things up mechanically. Rhythm passer who displays a power arm when attacking intermediate portions of the field. He projects to go in the first round.
Quick, compact ¾ delivery. Offensive system has pro-style influences – designed around isolation routes to attack the intermediate areas of the field off 5-step drops from under center Keep Reading…
Hillman is going to be a player that some teams will look back on and regret not drafting. The NFL Advisory Committee told him that he could be drafted as early as the third round, which seems fitting; however, I look at Hillman as one of the most skilled running backs going into the draft.
Hillman has been extremely productive with all the carries he’s seen, and that comes as no surprise, because he has many strengths and few weaknesses. That showed when he rushed for 1,711 yards (3rd in the nation) and rushed for 19 touchdowns (tied for 7th in the nation) for SDSU last year.
Ultimately one of his most important strengths is his ability to set up his own blockers and not always need a big hole to gain solid yardage. The way he does this, is by adjusting his pad level and shoulders Keep Reading…
On March 22, NFL scouts will have a tough decision to make.
As it turns out, the two top quarterbacks in the 2012 draft class will be holding their pro day workouts on the same day: March 22.
Whether it’s coincidence or not, Stanford’s Andrew Luck and Baylor’s Robert Griffin III will both work out for scouts on the same day in hopes of displaying their value as NFL prospects.
The biggest thing that people will watching for is how many Indianapolis Colts representatives show up to each workout. The Colts currently hold the No. 1 pick in the draft and are expected to pick Luck. Griffin, however, hasn’t been shy in expressing his belief that he should be the top pick.
“As long as that door’s open, I’m going to keep trying to run through it,” Griffin said of being draft first overall. “And when Keep Reading…

Riley Reiff is another in a long line of top-caliber offensive lineman from the University of Iowa. Like the others before him, Reiff is a blue-collar blocker who is fundamentally sound, hard working, and plays with the aggressiveness that most NFL scouts drool over. While there are some flaws in his game, Reiff strikes me as a day-one starter in the NFL, and should be able to man the left tackle position for a team for many years. Playing at a premium position so many teams crave, Reiff should hear his name called within the first 15 picks in the NFL Draft.
Reiff is technically solid in pass protection, using his natural Keep Reading…
“There is always a next step.”
With these words, University of Toledo’s Eric Page ended his decorated college career and entered the 2012 NFL Draft. It was a career littered with accomplishments and awards. With 306 receptions in 3 seasons (and the NCAA record in sight), Page was not only a finalist for this year’s Paul Hornung Award, given to the game’s most versatile player, but also a 2010 first team All American kickoff returner, who also returned punts, was used in the running game, and threw 4 TDs. Page is the definition of ultra-productive, saving his best season for last, being named 1st team All MAC at 3 positions, recording 125 receptions, and ripping through Ohio State’s defense for 12 catches, 145 yards, and 2 TDs.
As for the next step, Page projects as a versatile slot receiver and dynamic return man. At 5’ Keep Reading…
