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…)

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…)

Aaron Mannicci’s Early Look at the 2016 NFL Draft’s Tight End Class

Written by Aaron Mannicci, Analyst on June 25, 2015

Nick Vannett, Ohio State

The 2015 NFL Draft’s shallow tight end class left much to be desired. Unlike many drafts before it, no tight end was selected in the first round, and opinions varied on who the top tight end of the class was. However, with the 2015-2016 college football season approaching ever so quickly, the draft community has plenty to be excited about regarding 2016’s tight end class; it is a diverse, deep group of draft-eligible players.

With the college football season commencing in nearly two months and the first stage of the 2016 draft season in full swing, I ranked the top five tight ends of the upcoming class:

1. Nick Vannett, Ohio State

Nick Vannett enters his fifth season in Columbus as one of the Buckeyes’ many returning contributors on offense, and is primed for a breakout year after solidifying his role in Ohio State’s offense as a prime red-zone target and (read more…)

Mel Kiper ranks the top draft-eligible quarterbacks

Written by Bryan Perez on June 23, 2015


ESPN’s Mel Kiper released his preseason ranking of the top draft-eligible quarterbacks as we inch toward the start of the 2015 college football season.  Trevone Boykin, one of Draft Twitter’s early favorites, is rated as the No. 4 senior signal caller by Kiper, behind Connor Cook (1), Cody Kessler (2), Carson Wentz (3) and one spot ahead of Dak Prescott (5).

For the underclassmen, Kiper sees the pecking order as Jared Goff (1), Christian Hackenberg (2), Cardale Jones (3), Gunner Kiel (4), and Patrick Towles (5).

I’m a little surprised that Jacoby Brisset, the RS Senior from NC State, was left off the list.  The Florida transfer is a big, strong-armed quarterback with enough athletic ability to buy time in the pocket and make the occasional play with his legs.  He’s a much better prospect than Dak Prescott and should’ve (read more…)

2016 NFL Draft Prospect Preview: Bowling Green Falcons

Written by Justin Higdon, Senior Draft Analyst on June 23, 2015

The Bowling Green Falcons lost one of their top receiving targets just over a month before the 2014 season kicked off, then lost their starting quarterback one game into the year. The team still rebounded to win eight games and earn a spot in the MAC Championship Game, and while they were blown out in a rematch against Northern Illinois, the Falcons pulled off a victory over South Alabama in the Camellia Bowl. Bowling Green gets its QB back for 2015, and has some other intriguing talent returning as well. Here’s a look at the draft-eligibles suiting up for BG this season. (Asterisks denote underclassmen)
