UNC QB Mitch Trubisky declares for 2017 NFL draft

Written by Bryan Perez on January 9, 2017

Mitch Trubisky, the strong-armed quarterback of the North Carolina Tar Heels, made his NFL draft intentions known today when he tweeted that he was foregoing his final season of eligibility and turning pro.

Trubisky, who received a first-round grade from the NFL’s advisory board, will be an appealing prospect for the Cleveland Browns who hold the first pick in the draft.  Despite spending a third round pick on Cody Kessler last year, Trubisky has franchise-quarterback tools that will be difficult to pass on.

It’s highly unlikely that Trubisky will fall out of the top six, with the Browns, 49ers, Bears, Jaguars and Jets all in the market — potentially — for a quarterback this offseason.

Patrick Mahomes II is the Most Talented Quarterback in the 2017 Draft

Written by Nicholas McGee on January 5, 2017

Patrick Mahomes II finally made up his mind on Tuesday, deciding to enter the 2017 NFL Draft and a quarterback class that significantly divides opinion.

The debate continues over who the top quarterback in the class is, with many believing North Carolina’s Mitch Trubisky – if he declares – should be the first signal-caller taken.

But a study of film shows that it is Mahomes, who led the NCAA with 5,052 passing yards in 2016 and threw 41 touchdowns to just 10 interceptions, who has the best skill set of all of the quarterbacks in the draft.

There is no doubt that Mahomes is raw, having played exclusively out of the shotgun in Texas Tech’s air raid offense, however, he has the physical tools to succeed as an NFL quarterback and – even at the tender age of 21 – has displayed tendencies that suggest his transition from college to (read more…)

One of my favorite position groups to study when evaluating draft prospects is at cornerback. It is easily one of the hardest positional transitions from college to the NFL. In this article, I will give a preview of the top cornerback prospects in the 2017 NFL draft, dividing them into different categories. Feel free to send your feedback to my Twitter. Whether it is love or hatred toward my analysis, it is all welcome for discussion. Without further ado, here is my analysis of the top cornerbacks in the upcoming 2017 NFL draft, starting with the top tier.

TOP TIER 

 

Quincy Wilson, Florida 

The top cornerback on my draft board, Florida’s Quincy Wilson, looks the part of a shutdown cornerback at the next level. In Press, he is as suffocating as any cornerback in the draft, yet his physicality at the LOS is under control. Most press (read more…)

Should Wyoming QB Josh Allen declare for the 2017 NFL draft?

Written by Bryan Perez on January 3, 2017

NCAA Football: Poinsettia Bowl-Brigham Young vs Wyoming

One of the potential quarterback prospects for the 2017 NFL draft, Wyoming’s Josh Allen, has been receiving some buzz on Twitter after Tony Pauline of the Draft Analyst recently reported that the redshirt sophomore passer was strongly considering declaring for the draft.

The news has been met with a variety of opinions, many of which suggest he’d be best served returning to school for his junior season in an effort to become a more consistent passer.

I disagree.

Allen isn’t a finished product.  Far from it, actually.  But of all the quarterbacks who could potentially be in this year’s class, Allen possesses the highest upside with the best combination of NFL traits.  Simply put, he checks all the boxes.  He’s big, athletic and has the most gifted arm of any passer that’s eligible to turn pro.

Allen has a cannon of an arm. In fact, I’d call his natural (read more…)
