2016 NFL Draft Prospect Preview: Illinois Fighting Illini

Written by Justin Higdon, Senior Draft Analyst on July 1, 2015

For the first time in three seasons under Head Coach Tim Beckman, the Fighting Illini of Illinois achieved bowl eligibility in 2014. The team managed six regular season wins despite enduring an injury to starting quarterback Wes Lunt, and a stretch in which they dropped five of six games. Late November wins over Penn State and Northwestern got the Illini into the Heart of Dallas Bowl where they lost 35-18 to Louisiana Tech. Things didn’t get easier for Beckman after the season, as a number of former players from both Illinois, and his previous post at Toledo, accused the coach of rushing athletes back from injury, harassment, and threats to take away scholarships. Beckman has weathered the storm for now, but his 12-25 record in Champaign warmed up his seat even before the unflattering picture of his character emerged. The Illini have some decent talent on the roster, but (read more…)

2015 NFL Supplemental Draft: An Overview of Clemson’s Isaiah Battle

Written by Dan Matney, Analyst on June 30, 2015

Football - Isaiah Battle

This year’s NFL Supplemental Draft is projected to be held in the first half of July. In case you are unaware of the rules of the event, a team can select an eligible player with a pick in whatever round they choose. If a team drafts a player, they will lose that round’s pick in next year’s NFL Draft. The last time a player was selected in the supplemental draft was in 2012 when the Cleveland Brown selected wide receiver Josh Gordon in the second round.

For this year’s Supplemental Draft, one intriguing name is Isaiah Battle, a 22-year-old tackle from Clemson. Although there is speculation as to why he declared, Battle is an interesting prospect that will more than likely be chosen at some point in July. Let’s take a look at Battle’s skill set as he aims to be on a NFL roster for the 2015 NFL season.

2016 NFL Draft Prospect Preview: Utah St Aggies

Written by Derek Rizzuto, Analyst on June 28, 2015


The Utah State Aggies labored through a devastating amount of injuries in 2014 but were still able to tally 10 wins and earn a spot in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl against UTEP. The team lost nine starters altogether due to injury (most among FBS schools), and played four different starting QBs during the course of the season. With the loss of key players the team came together and had a strong season, led by a defense that ended the regular season ranked 21st nationally in points per game allowed with 20.8. With many key players returning from injuries, this year’s squad has high expectations and hopes to challenge for a Mountain West Conference crown at the end of the season. Here is a look at some of the draft eligible players suiting up for the Aggies this fall. (Asterisks denote underclassmen)

2016 NFL Draft: Big-Time Backers, Kentrell Brothers (Missouri)

Written by Mitch Militello, Analyst on June 26, 2015


For the latest installment of my “Big-Time Backers” series, I decided to take a look at Kentrell Brothers, the impact Linebacker from the University of Missouri.

Kentrell Brothers

RS Senior #10

HT: 6010 WT: 235


  • Originally from Guthrie, Oklahoma and Guthrie High School where he was a 3 year starter at LB and WR. A highly recruited player (3 star), he chose Missouri over a number of other offers. Was slated to be a backup linebacker as a freshman but sustained a season-ending leg injury just weeks before the start of the season. In his next season in 2012, he served as a backup and saw some decent playing time as well as some good special teams action. As a redshirt sophomore he earned a starting spot and never looked back. He was the only linebacker to start all 14 games for Mizzou’s breakout team. (read more…)
