2020 NFL Rookie Prop Bets
Gambling on NFL games in nothing new, but specific proposition bets haven’t been around that long. One of the fastest growing segments of the sports betting industry in the US, prop betting is evolving in Nevada sportsbooks and online as gaming control boards open up to these opportunities. And despite the uncertain outlook for the upcoming season, oddsmakers have wasted no time building the market for the 2020 NFL rookie prop bets.
Prop bets are wager on an individual player or specific event, and they became popular with the Super Bowl. These days, there are hundreds...
Every team comes out of the draft feeling like winners for picking their top prospects. Experts will have their opinions on whether they made the right pick or not. NFL teams sometimes need to take a risk on a pick to try to put them over the top. Here is a list of five players that are considered risky picks.
Draft Risk: Jordan Love, QB, Packers
Anytime a team picks a quarterback in the first round of the draft when they already have a great quarterback is risky. The most obvious reason is Aaron Rodgers won't be too happy...
The 2020 NFL Draft is around the corner, teams have their board set, everyone is polishing their rankings, and I'm no different. This year I chose to put all my focus on the quarterback position, so I could allocate the time needed to make a fair and educated opinion on this quarterback class. Specifically, the top 10 quarterbacks.
In the upcoming days I will be posting individual articles of every quarterback in my watchlist, I haven't written on yet. The film and grading part of each one is set, only thing left is to...
How We Got Here
Tua Tagovailoa is one of the most intriguing prospects in this draft class. For most of the college football season, Tagovailoa was seen as the most talented prospect on the board. He played quarterback for the Alabama Crimson Tide, putting up sparking numbers and leading the Tide to a National Championship in his tenure.
Tagovailoa injured his hip in mid-November that required season-ending surgery, ending his storied Alabama career. With a devastating injury such as one to the hip, there was talk that Tua's surgery would be career-ending. For everyone's sake,...
Almost every player from every draft has a person that they remind me of. However, I have two comps. One of them what their career could be if they succeed, and the other if their career wasn't as good. Here are my comps for the top-five quarterback comps in this year's class.

With the 2020 NFL Combine officially concluded, it's time to take a look at several NFL Draft prospects that are leaving Indianapolis in a much different position that when they arrived. As we get closer to the 2020 NFL Draft, our staff here will be releasing scouting reports and tracking the draft stock of all the prospects.
Mekhi Becton, OL, Louisville
Friday saw Mekhi Becton earning his money, posting a 5.10 40-yard dash after measuring in at 6'7 and 364 lbs. Becton has garnered first round hype, even appearing in Daniel Jeremiah's Top 50 prospects. After his performance at...
Next quarterback up to analyze is none other than Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama's golden child. We all know the story, Jalen Hurts was struggling a bit vs Clemson in the national championship so Tua takes over in the second half then throws the game-winning 41-yard TD pass in overtime.
Then he played lights out all year (only losing to Clemson in the national championship rematch) which got people so excited all you could see where signs "Tank for Tua" for all NFL teams that began the year losing.
With April 23rd nearing, the 2020 NFL Draft quarterbacks not named Joe Burrow are all wondering where they might end up. If you're not a Bengals fan and hope to draft a quarterback, who do you want?
Of the 2020 NFL Draft quarterbacks, Justin Herbert is my second-ranked quarterback not named Joe. He's got some of the best physical tools for his position of anyone in this draft. And he can move. Like a gaselle.
Herbert evades an edge pass-rusher and converts...
A lot of the current discussion amongst NFL Draft aficionados has to do with where Tua Tagovailoa, now that he's declared his intentions to enter the draft, will land.
Personally, I've heard a good deal about the Dolphins in these discussions. Miami has been at the forefront of a lot of Tua talk. Some have suggested that Tua's brother, Taulia (a current Alabama QB), could transfer to the University of Miami should Tua be drafted by the South Florida franchise.
The situation just isn't that simple.
On Monday afternoon, star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa declared for the 2020 NFL Draft. The junior is forgoing his senior season at Alabama.
Considered by many to be one of the top quarterback prospects in recent years, Tagovailoa's draft stock slid after a devastating hip injury late this season. There was some question whether or not he should return for his senior year to rehab the injury, but he was still considered a first round pick.
Tagovailoa finishes his career at Alabama holding school records for most passing touchdowns (87) and most 300-yard...
