2015 NFL Draft Prospect Spotlight: Florida DE Dante Fowler

Written by Joe Marino on January 10, 2015

dante_fowler_jr_1

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…)

2015 NFL Draft Prospect Spotlight: TCU LB Paul Dawson

Written by Joe Marino on January 6, 2015

Paul Dawson_TCU_LB

Paul Dawson’s impressive senior season as a Horned Frog catapulted him from junior college transfer to one of the most intriguing linebackers in the 2015 class. The accolades piled up this season for Dawson as he was named First Team All-Big 12, Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and was a consensus All-American. In his standout senior campaign, Dawson racked up 136 tackles, 20 tackles for loss, six sacks and four interceptions.

Why Dawson Wins

An every down player, Dawson effectively plays against the pass and run while contributing his share of “splash” plays. With sound instincts, Dawson’s play recognition skills are excellent and he positions himself well to make plays. Often a step ahead, Dawson trusts what he sees and flows with conviction to the football.

When pursuing the ball, Dawson shows the effort and range needed to excel at the next level. He is aggressive (read more…)


2015 NFL Draft: Intro to Box Score Scouting

Written by Justin Higdon on January 6, 2015

gordon

Years ago, when I first delved into the world of NFL Draft analysis, I was introduced to the phrase “box score scouting.” Often used in a derisive manner, this bit of terminology refers to the use of statistics as a substitute for actually watching a prospect’s games. In debates – particularly on twitter, where statements are limited to 140 characters – citing numbers to support one’s case can result in a lecture (“Watch the tape, pal”) and the “box score scout” label. I know this occurs, because I’ve experienced it firsthand.

A Look at Oregon’s 2015 Prospects

Written by Justis Mosqueda on December 10, 2014

Marcus Mariota

An inaugural playoff team, the Oregon Ducks have talent on both sides of the ball. As CBS’s Dane Brugler has pointed out several times this season, this could be the year for Oregon to break their program’s single-season record of players drafted to the next level.

Before going deeper into the roster, and it is deep, we must first begin with Marcus Mariota.

 

Marcus Mariota, QB, #8*

Mariota is in all likelihood going to be a top-five pick. This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone who follows college football or the NFL draft.

He’s an efficient quarterback who can throw as well on the run as in the pocket and has the breakaway speed to hit the home run ball. All in all, he looks like a crossbred version of Russell Wilson and Ryan Tannehill.

He’s still not completely filled out. Some will have issues with his (read more…)
