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

brothers

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

Background

  • 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…)


2016 NFL Draft Prospect Preview: Stanford Cardinal

Written by Ryan Dukarm on June 26, 2015

The Stanford Cardinal are coming off their first ever single digit win season in the David Shaw era, going 8-5 in 2014 but finishing the season on a three game win streak including a 45-21 rout of Maryland in the Foster Farms Bowl. They have 15 projected starters entering the year as draft eligible so the 2016 Draft could see a large contingent of Stanford players declaring.  They return their starting QB and all but one of their starting offensive lineman from last season on the offensive side of the ball, as well as major contributors at the skill positions. The biggest losses in the 2015 Draft for Stanford came on the defensive side of the ball by losing players like Henry Anderson, Alex Carter, Jordan Richards and AJ Tarpley to the NFL level. Listed below are the 2016 NFL Draft eligble Stanford Cardinals.

2016 NFL Draft Prospect Preview: Miami Hurricanes

Written by Gabe Burns, Analyst on June 25, 2015

Once one of the most powerful programs in the nation, times have changed for the University of Miami. The Hurricanes are coming off a 6-7 season, which was their first losing record since 2007. Despite the poor record, The Canes had seven players selected in the 2015 draft, leading many to question how the program has failed to be nationally relevant over the last several years. Head coach Al Golden (28-22) enters his fifth year with the Hurricanes and needs to produce before Miami decides to make a change.

A quick turnaround will be no easy task after the recent exodus of NFL-caliber players, but Miami does have enough talent, led by 2017 quarterback prospect Brad Kaaya, that it should aim to rebound with a winning 2015 campaign. The school doesn’t have any standout prospects for this year’s draft, but does appear loaded with potential for 2017’s draft. (read more…)
