Updated Preseason Top 50 Big Board

It seems that every year in the NFL Draft community we are quick to say something along the lines of "this year is going to be a special class", however, how truly special are the draft classes when it's all said and done? Sure, every year we have a bunch of talented players enter the league, but based on the number of times I've said "this is going to be special" there should be approximately 500 more truly exceptional players in the NFL than there currently is.  That said, am I going to...

2020 NFL Mock Draft: Preseason Edition

Preseason in the NFL is solidly underway, and while the games may not count, the players in those games are some of the most interesting guys in the entire league. The preseason is a time for young NFL draftees to show off, and whether the player is a late round selection or went at the top of the draft, I've always loved seeing how they play in live, albeit watered-down, NFL action. With that in mind, it's never too soon to start looking ahead to the next wave of NFL players. The 2020 NFL Draft class is shaping...

Do 2019 High-Profile QB Transfers Have NFL Futures?

With the introduction of the transfer portal in October 2018 came a wave of players deciding to control their college football destinies by transferring to different schools. Quarterbacks, in particular, seemed to take advantage of their newfound opportunity with several big-name throwers changing uniforms going into the 2019-20 season. The real question, however, is this; do any of these big-name transfers have NFL potential? Let’s take a look.  Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma (from Alabama) When Jalen Hurts began his collegiate career at Alabama, he was an instant success, but in an unpredictable world like college football, success is often fleeting....

For NFL prospects, senior seasons are a player’s last chance to make an impression with NFL teams. While not every prospect will take advantage of their last collegiate season, plenty of prospects will take advantage of their senior seasons and see their draft stock soar. While plenty can and will change between now and the 2020 draft, these are five seniors that could find themselves on the rise. Jace Whittaker, CB, Arizona Coming off a lost season due to a lingering injury, Jace Whittaker enters the 2019-20 season with something to prove. Entering last season, Whittaker had some hype...

Summer Scouting: Washington OT Trey Adams

Football season is over, and with no games to speak of, this is generally the time of year in which the sport takes a backseat to first the NBA playoffs, then MLB baseball. Obviously, this slow period for the sport means there is nothing to talk about as it relates to the NFL Draft, right? Wrong! Although only a fool would think we can make 100% accurate scouting reports about players months before the season begins, that doesn’t mean I’m not going to try. So, without further ado, here is the second installment in a little series...

The 2020 draft class has a chance to be loaded with talent and these 10 players may just lead the way. 1. Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama* Fresh off an electric season for the Crimson Tide, Tua Tagovailoa is the current favorite to go No. 1 overall as long as he continues to build on his spectacular 2018-19 season. As a great anticipatory thrower that generally takes care of the...

5 Sleeper Prospects in the 2019 NFL Draft

When it comes to the NFL Draft, it’s often the big-name, early-round players that make the biggest waves. That said, it’s important not to discount the impact of the late-round guys. Sure, they may not have the same hype as their early-round counterparts, but these five guys are players that have been slept on throughout the draft process and have a chance to be productive NFL players right away. Bryce Love, RB, Stanford Coming off a season marred by injuries, Bryce Love has flown under the radar as people have forgotten just how explosive he can be. Let’s...

Given An Opportunity, Miles Sanders is Ready to Shine

As a former top 25 overall high school prospect, Miles Sanders committed to Penn State in 2015 and big expectations followed. It was assumed Sanders would use his well-rounded game and athleticism to dominate Big Ten competition. Despite the acclaim and expectations, however, it was actually teammate Saquon Barkley who dominated opposing teams, leaving Sanders relegated to a bench role up until this season. However, given the opportunity, Sanders dominated in 2018-19, and moving forward, Sanders looks ready to continue his shining play. Despite the fact that the team lost the best rusher in college football, Penn...
