2015 NFL Draft: Jon Dove’s Pre-Combine Mock Draft

Written by Jon Dove on February 11, 2015

Jameis Winston - Featured

I always like putting out a mock draft prior to the NFL Combine because it represents my evaluation based on game tape. The combine is useful to a point but it’s important to stay true to your evaluations. Some players may move a few spots on my rankings after the combine but that’s because it forces me to go back and look at the film differently.

1.  Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State

Winston comes with question marks but his on-field talent is undeniable. The Buccaneers need to do their homework on Winston’s off-field issues because this pick will impact the next several years of the franchise.

2.  Tennessee Titans- Dante Fowler Jr., DE, Florida

Fowler is a unique prospect in that he plays bigger than his measurables suggest. This is a nasty player capable of setting the edge versus the run, delivering big hits and (read more…) Presents: The RSP Film Room with Matt Waldman

Scouting the CBs: Marcus Peters, Washington

Written by Bryan Perez on February 9, 2015


The 2015 NFL Draft will offer teams some promising players at the cornerback position, but the class lacks any truly elite prospect worthy of an early first-round pick. Marcus Peters (Washington) has received the most attention in the class, and is considered by many to be this year’s top cover man.  While I like his potential as a physical player on the next level, I’m not quite as sold after studying him on tape.  Below is my analysis of his game.


Marcus Peters, the junior cornerback from the Washington Huskies, enters the 2015 NFL Draft after a tumultuous end to his collegiate career. Peters was dismissed from the Huskies program after alleged incidents involving members of the team’s coaching staff. Peters played in a total of 8 games last year, after starting 12 of 13 games in 2013. He also started (read more…)

Scouting the DT’s: Jordan Phillips, Oklahoma

Written by Bryan Perez on February 9, 2015


The talent pool for the 2015 NFL Draft is starting to take shape, and the early returns are less than thrilling.  That’s not to say that the class lacks top-tier talent, as there are some very good prospects at positions like EDGE rusher, wide receiver and running back.  Add in the top two quarterbacks, and the intrigue at the top of the first round will be pretty high.

One of the stronger positions in the class is defensive tackle.  There are several guys who could go in the first round, with many others likely to hear their name called at some point during Day Two.  Jordan Phillips (Oklahoma) is a prospect that some have valued as a first rounder, and his natural size and overall potential could land him there.  However, after my tape study, I have a slightly different opinion.  Below is my (read more…)

Justin Higdon Presents: Box Score Scouting the Running Backs

Written by Justin Higdon on February 9, 2015


When I sat down to box score scout the running backs, my plan was to keep it simple. Are they picking up yardage in chunks? Do they contribute as receivers? Did they find the end zone often? And lastly, were they major contributors throughout their respective college careers? Several months ago, I found myself in a twitter discussion (read: argument) about a particular running back who I characterized as having a pedestrian yards per carry average. In this case, the runner had been gaining about five yards per rushing attempt, which I felt was middling, and the counterpoint was that five yards per carry was an above average number. This may well be the case in the NFL, but when evaluating production at the collegiate level, and understanding the leap in competition that even the athletes from major programs face, my feeling was and is that I’d (read more…)

Scouting the WRs: Dorial Green-Beckham, Oklahoma

Written by Bryan Perez on February 7, 2015


Over the next few months, I will be posting my scouting evaluations/summaries on the player pages here on DB.  After you take a look at the film, feel free to checkout my opinion and let me know what you think.  Below is what I recently posted on Dorial Green-Beckham’s player page:


Doral Green-Beckham, the Oklahoma Sooner underclassman receiver, enters the 2015 NFL Draft after sitting out the 2014 college football season due to transfer rules. DGB enrolled at Oklahoma after being dismissed from Missouri following an April, 2014 off-field incident that allegedly involved a burglary and violence. While no charges were filed, it wasn’t the first time that DGB found himself in trouble with the law. His off-field incidents are well-documented and can be found via a simple google search. While at Missouri, DGB had a breakout season in 2013 when he totaled 53 (read more…)

Bryan Perez’s 2015 NFL Mock Draft, V. 1.0

Written by Bryan Perez on February 5, 2015

Marcus Mariota

The 2015 NFL Mock Draft season is in full swing, with some analysts going so far as to post seven rounds of picks! I bow to them, as it’s an endeavor that gives me the shakes. That said, and since I am the defending Huddle Report Mock Draft Champion, it’s time that I publish my first complete, first-round mock.

Note: Remember, this is only my first mock of the season! As free agency clarifies team needs, and the combine separates some of the top-tier prospects, the mock drafts will slowly take shape. Mock Draft 3.0 will be the one that I submit to the Huddle Report in defense of my 2014 Mock Draft Championship. As always, thanks for reading!

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon

The Reason: It’s no secret that Tampa needs a quarterback, as neither Josh McCown or Mike Glennon (read more…)
