2015 Shrine Game: East Team Rundown

Written by Justin Higdon, Senior Draft Analyst on January 13, 2015

Andre Davis

Day One of East-West Shrine Game practices was dampened by steady Florida rain showers, but Day Two’s weather was perfect for full pads. Too bad Mike Singletary runs the absolute worst practices I have ever seen. Inexplicably the former Niners head coach likes to line up offense vs. offense and defense vs. defense for long stretches of time. Observers were treated to offensive linemen lined up at linebacker, receivers at the corners and even quarterbacks at deep safety. It was easily the most frustrating aspect of either teams’ practices during my two days at St. Pete. But enough ranting. There were still plenty of good takeaways and players who stood out and warrant a second (or in some cases, a first) look. Here’s a quick rundown of my brief stint at college footballs annual mid-tier all-star game.

2015 NFL Draft Prospect Spotlight: Florida DE Dante Fowler

Written by Joe Marino, Senior NFL Draft Analyst on January 10, 2015

If Fowler was looking to leave a strong final impression in the minds of NFL Scouts with his play on the field, he did just that is his last game as a college player. In the Gators 28-20 Birmingham Bowl victory over East Carolina, Fowler produced three sacks to go along with two additional quarterback hurries while taking the game over in the fourth quarter to help secure the teams win. This capped a strong junior season for the former five-star recruit as he was named First-Team All-SEC by the conference’s coaches. He tallied 60 tackles, 15.5 tackles for loss 8.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.

Why Fowler Wins

As a Junior, Fowler came into his own as a prospect. He has tremendous functional strength which allows him to control his gap as a run defender and execute power moves as a pass rusher. Combining his strength (read more…)

Ryan Delaire’s NFL Draft Breakdown

While most of the discussion this spring regarding the 2015 NFL draft will center around top prospects like Marcus Mariota, Jameis Winston, Leonard Williams and Randy Gregory, the real discussion among NFL teams and scouts will be about the late-round prospects.

It is easy for anyone to look at a guy like Leonard Williams and see a great player. What is difficult is finding that late round gem who will develop into a productive player in the NFL. That is where the scouts earn their keep and that is what separates the okay scouts and evaluators from the great scouts and evaluators.

For one of this year’s late-round sleepers, we head over to Towson University in Baltimore, Maryland. When you watch a Towson football game, there is a player that sticks out like a (read more…)
