Twitter was abuzz today after news broke of Christian McCaffrey’s decision to skip Stanford’s date at the Sun Bowl, where the Cardinal will face North Carolina on December 30.  McCaffrey joins fellow top running back prospect Leonard Fournette as high-profile college stars who have decided to focus on their scouting combine and pro day training for the upcoming 2017 NFL draft instead of their respective teams’ post-season bowl games.

The decision to skip their final collegiate game stirred a mix of reactions on social media, ranging from those who agreed with the cautious approach to those who described the choice as selfish and off-putting.  Last year’s first running back drafted and the odds-on favorite for the NFL’s Rookie of the Year, Ezekiel Elliott, offered his two cents:

“All these young guys deciding to skip their bowl games.  I would do anything to play one time with my brothers in (read more…)

Browns reportedly have an “astronomical grade” on Garrett – And they should.

With the Cleveland Browns’ loss this weekend to the Cincinnati Bengals, they’re currently sitting at 0-13 and inching closer to clinching the first overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. For any organization as starved for a franchise QB as the Browns have been for what seems like an eternity now, it’s naturally tempting to consider using that pick on a QB. The Browns will likely eye a number of QB prospects over the next several months, including Mitch Trubisky, DeShone Kizer and Deshaun Watson.

But ultimately, their decision should be an easy one — it starts and ends with Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett.

Garrett is the best defensive prospect I’ve seen in years — as a matter of fact, it’s hard to remember the last time we saw an edge rusher of Garrett’s caliber, and as the scouting process continues, Garrett will likely earn the “generational talent” tag. (read more…)


DeShone Kizer adds intrigue to first round of 2017 NFL draft

The decision by Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer to declare for the 2017 NFL draft has added intrigue to what appears to be shaping up as an unsettled first round of this year’s selection weekend.  The 6-foot-4 junior from Toledo, Ohio will be heavily scrutinized over the next several months, but he has the tools to warrant consideration at the top of the draft, especially for his hometown Cleveland Browns.

Just this week, reports surfaced about the Browns having an astronomical grade on Texas A&M pass-rusher Myles Garrett.  According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Cleveland has zeroed in on Garrett with the top pick — assuming they maintain hold of it — in this year’s draft.  After today’s news of Kizer’s decision to turn pro, there’s a chance they could be reconsidering.

Kizer is far from a perfect prospect, but he’s also far from a finished product.  There’s no denying he (read more…)
