Easter Mock Draft by Will Spencer

As a fun holiday gift, here’s a brand new mock draft that includes some major trades. In this mock, the 49ers have clearly made the decision to plan for life without Aldon Smith and make a major move all the way up to #2 to grab Jadeveon Clowney. To do this, they give St. Louis picks 30 (Round 1), 56 (Round 2), 77 (Round 3) and 2015’s 1st round pick. Pick 56 was obtained by the 49ers from Kansas City and pick 77 came from Tennessee, so even after this trade, they still have three picks in rounds 2-3 (61, 94 and 100). Since the Rams already hold the 13th pick in the draft, they’re happy to continue to build their young and talented team through the draft.

Minnesota moves back to #13 and still picks up Teddy Bridgewater. The Rams chose to move up from #13 after just trading (read more…)

Jon Dove’s Defensive Prospect Man Crushes

Written by Jon Dove on March 21, 2014


Every year, a handful of under the radar prospects catch my eye and become my draft man crushes. This draft season, I’m especially intrigued by the remarkable defensive talents who receive little pub.   I’d be willing to pound the table for these guys. While they aren’t highly regarded by everyone in the draft community, I believe they will have excellent NFL careers.   Robert Nelson — Cornerback — Arizona State

Call me crazy, but I wouldn’t hesitate to use a second-round pick on Nelson. The Sun Devil defensive back is a smooth athlete who can really stick with his target. He reminds me of a less heralded version of TCU’s Jason Verrett, as both players do a great job limiting separation by the wideout.

Nelson also is a versatile defender, excelling in both man and zone coverage. In man, he uses his quickness and long arms to stick with (read more…)

Math Rushers

Math Rushers: Waldo

“Box score scouting” is as or more dangerous in the sport of football as any other on Earth. With 22 moving parts on any given play, it’s hard to come up with a metric to compare and/or contrast players that aren’t influenced by the system the player plays in, the strength of his opponent, or the strength of the teammates next to him.

The most important day for football evaluations comes in the spring: the NFL Draft. Teams hedge their futures on players. One single player can elevate the entire franchise to another level, ending up in raises or championships for those around them, as well as for himself.

On the contrast, some set a team back for years as they’re forced into the lineups due to their investment value. Imagine how different Buffalo would have been like had they taken Brian Orakpo or Clay (read more…)

The Case for Logan Thomas

Written by Spencer on February 21, 2014

Logan Thomas - Featured

Once hyped as the next big thing, Logan Thomas is now readily dismissed by a number of analysts.

After two very up & down seasons, it’s understandable why the excitement about the VaTech QB’s declined, but much of what’s said by his most ardent critics simply isn’t accurate.

The physical tools that once intrigued so many didn’t disappear — Thomas still possesses the ability to be an NFL quarterback, and a good one too.

Over the next couple pages, I’ll take a look at some of the more prominent NFL traits Thomas possesses.
