If we thought the draft process was unusual last year, we are in for a treat in 2021. Last year, really on pro days were affected with the draft going virtual. This year, however, the NFL Scouting Combine was all but canceled. That means no centralized location for teams to get all the information they can on 300+ prospects. That also means the 2021 Senior Bowl just became that much more important for some prospects to showcase their skillsets to the NFL.
The Senior Bowl is the premier all-star game of the offseason where every NFL is highly represented. It...
If you need an offensive lineman in the 2021 NFL Draft and you’re near the front of the order, you are really hoping that Penei Sewell is available when you pick. Even with the PAC-12 playing football next month, Sewell is still choosing to opt out of the season and prepare for the NFL Draft. Who could blame him for his decision when he is already being considered as a top five pick. Let’s take a look at why he is getting the hype that he is getting.
Sewell's Back Story
Sewell stands at 6’5” and 325 pounds and is from...

Welcome to week 3 of Prospect Fight Night! This week, we’ll be looking at performances from Alabama vs. South Carolina. Alabama, as we all know, is one of the best teams in the country, and has some of the best talent on both sides of the ball. While they aren’t as talented as Alabama’s roster, South Carolina has some game changers on both sides of the ball. Let’s see how each team stacks up against each other.
Coming into this week, Alabama was ranked #2 in the nation, and for good reason. For the last decade, Alabama has been nothing...
Although the 2019 NFL season kicks off this Thursday night with the Green Bay Packers visiting the Chicago Bears, it's never too early to look ahead at the 2020 NFL Draft. With preseason and one week of college football finished, the first rounds of NFL mock drafts are upon us. Here is my first look at what next year's top ten picks could look like:
1. New York Giants (3-13): Chase Young, DE, Ohio State
While Daniel Jones shined in preseason play with an 85.3% average and 137.3 QBR, Dave Gettleman has made it clear that Eli Manning isn't going anywhere...
Welcome to week two of Prospect Fight Night. This week, we have a match-up between one of the best interior defensive linemen in the country and the most experienced offensive line in the country. In a game between two highly ranked teams there is NFL talent all over the field. While all the hype surrounds Justin Herbert, the offensive line is one of the most important cogs that makes that Oregon offense roll. Auburn, a team typically known for their offensive firepower, have one of the best, if not the best defensive tackles in college football, Derrick Brown. Let's...
With the College Football season underway, it's time to shift our focus towards the 2020 NFL Draft.
1. Chase Young, Defensive End, Ohio State
Young is coming off of a strong performance against Florida Atlantic, totaling 5 tackles and 1.5 sacks on the day. I have him listed as a defensive end, but he has showed the ability to drop into coverage. Young has a knack for disrupting the pocket and locating the ball quickly.
2. Jerry Jeudy, Wide Receiver, Alabama
Jeudy is an excellent route runner that excels with a wide catch radius and quick feet that allows him to break out...
Welcome to the inaugural prospect fight night! Each week we'll be diving deep on prospect matchups in big games across the country. Top tier prospects go head to head each week and I'll be the one that determines a winner between them. Week 0 provided a very sloppy game of football, nevertheless, there were some big-name prospects that squared off on Saturday. Without further ado, let’s get these fights underway!In the first fight of the night we have two cornerback prospects vying for the title of best corner in Florida. Fighting out of the blue corner, we have the...
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 change my yearly declarations of love for...
