Virginia Tech WR Isaiah Ford and the Art of Body Control

Written by Nicholas McGee on February 15, 2017

Complete receivers are very difficult to find and, in this year’s draft class, there is perhaps only one player who could be described as such in the form of Western Michigan’s Corey Davis.

Davis is the most well-rounded wideout in the draft, though many consider Mike Williams of Clemson to be the top pass-catcher available.

Like most of the receivers in the class, Williams excels in one area in particular rather than in every facet of his game. His size allows him to physically dominate defenders and make contested catches on a consistent basis.

Virginia Tech’s Isaiah Ford shares this knack for winning the fight for contested balls but, rather than relying on physicality and catch radius, Ford is a reliable target because of his body control, which also enables him to haul in inaccurate passes, often in spectacular fashion.

Unlike Williams, Ford is not receiving first-round hype but, though (read more…)

Let’s start with your earlier years; you’re a JUCO guy who played at Arizona Western in Yuma. Talk about that journey and what led to your decision to attend there.

Magloire: I switched positions to strong safety and coaching changes. I worked hard at it and learned a lot. At spring ball, scouts saw me. I got interest from Arizona and then got tons after that.

You led the Matadors to a 11-1 record as a second team all American who had 101 tackles, did you ever think you’d get recruited?

Magloire: That was the goal. Make it to a big time school. I had faith in myself and I worked really hard.

When you got recruited by Arizona, what position did they recruit you to play for the Wildcats?

Magloire: At first, strong safety. I played strong safety until week six of this season. Injuries happened to linebackers and (read more…)

2017 NFL Draft: Pre-Combine Top 50 Big Board

Written by Jonah Tuls on February 7, 2017

The 2017 NFL draft is near, and my latest big board of the top 50 prospects before February’s Scouting Combine features both risers and notable cuts. Feel free to yell at me on Twitter if you hate my rankings. Let the games begin!

1. Myles Garrett, EDGE, Texas A&M – The consensus number one player in this draft possesses a rare blend of power, bend, and hand usage. He is the perfect mold for a right defensive end in a 4-3 defense.

2. Reuben Foster, LB, Alabama – An elite inside linebacker prospect who can play all three downs at a high level. His ability to come downhill, sort and finish through traffic, and cover ground sideline to sideline puts him in the upper echelon of linebacker prospects.

3. Jamal Adams, S, LSU – Adams is a missile coming downhill, but he is also able to control his aggression and make (read more…)
