  1. What's the buzz on Simi Fehoko? Stacked WR classes are a common theme nowadays, but this one is particularly deep after the top guys. I guess if Fehoko runs a great 40 yard dash, he has a shot to be selected in the 2nd round. Shades of Claypool. Although I guess he is more in the JJAW tier in terms of game speed, which is a nice comp as well (judging JJAW as a prospect, not the NFL bust). Marquez Stevenson has been mentioned several times as a late round sleeper. He is indeed, I could see him going much earlier. Ankle injury cost him, although he came back and looked good considering he w
  2. Any NFL player ranking that has Mahomes at #4 is a joke. You could argue Lamar had an excellent regular season while Mahomes was injured for the most part. Yet even when considering the injury, Mahomes should be no lower than #2.
  3. At first glance I thought football. But imo it's a rhetoric question. Can't be answered correctly. Just like there are people who excel in mathematics or learning a new language, there are people who grasp football easily and for some it's too complex. I played soccer and football at ambitious amateur level. Anybody with the necessary physical tools can become a good football player, even make it in the NFL. We see it all the time, kids from Africa with no knowledge of the game turn into NFL stars within a few years. Or kids from Europe who haven't heard of football until high school. As
  4. I like Hodgins over Gabriel Davis fwiw.
  5. Opinions on Delpit are all over the place. I think he can be great, but he could bust if put into a bad spot. What scheme do the Browns run and what would be the most likely role of Delpit?
  6. Kirk Merritt has a good shot to see the field as far as UDFA Rookies go. The Dolphins aren't deep at WR to begin with, yet they didn't draft a WR. Merritt is a SPARQ freak and actually has good hands. If not for a couple of nudist incidents, we'd be talking about a day 2 talent out of a major programme. Adrian Killins is my 2nd adopted UDFA. He is what the Eagles envisioned when they picked Pumphrey. They have some backs behind Miles Sanders, but the pecking order is tbd. None of their backs have the Electric speed of Killins. Could immediately step in as their return guy and get some cha
  7. Another KJ is the polar opposite: KJ Hamler has UDFA hands and late round size, but elite 1st round burst, agility and speed to burn.
  8. Throw in Josiah Scott alongside Amik Robertson. Scott might actually be even stickier in coverage and athletically more gifted. Both should be among the best nickels in the NFL by year 2. Idk why teams in a league dominated by slot WRs and nickel being the main defense - still undervalue that position. It's much more important than your 3rd LB or IDL, yet it doesn't show in the draft process.
  9. What happened to Isaiah Hodgins? He was my sleeper and should've been a mid round pick. He almost fell out of the 6th! He has arguably the best hands and body control in the draft class. The 4.6 flat wasn't shocking, and for the type of WR he is, it's not the worst time. His agility and jump/explosion numbers were really good and much better than most expected. He can run some really advanced routes for a guy this tall. Long arms as well, natural late hands to make incredible catches look like routine. Needs a bit more strength, but he is just 21 years old. He doesn't win with brute power any
  10. You could absolutely be right. We see it each and every year. Where was Burrow a year ago? Surefire 1st rounders take nosedives, borderline draftable prospects vault themselves into high 1st round territory. Fields could put up a bigger show than Lawrence, who could stagnate, struggle with injuries, or just be dissected under the microscope. I can already hear the critics that he is a throw it up for grabs QB rather than a sophisticated passer. Lance could put up a season for the ages and if Lawrence doesn't improve on his stats, we might already have a discussion. Don't forget about Fiel
  11. This is the same smoke and mirrors as all the predraft chatter. Team officials and sources will always try to appease the fanbase, underlining how big of a steal all their picks were. I can't remember the last time when Steve Keim of the Cardinals didn't come out after the draft claiming they had a 1st round grade on their 3rd round pick. Actually this year he may be right with Josh Jones. So basically all teams in the 1st are on record that they got a top 5 or top 10 prospect. You hear it each and every year. And in the mid and late rounds, you always hear how this player stood out from the r
  12. Without offseason on-field practice but also in general, I believe it's wise that they don't overload him. He is a freakish athlete and very smart, but regardless it's a big jump in play speed and scheme complexity. Flip flopping between positions could hurt his development. Reddick and Bucannon were two recent 1st round picks by the Cards - nowhere near as talented as Simmons - that were hurt by switching between positions early on in their careers. Reddick looked more natural at 3-4 OLB last year, he was lost in space off the ball. Bucannon was drafted to be a forceful SS, then jumped in at
  13. As I take pride in lead blockers, kudos to James Develin on a great career! A serious neck injury at a position where forceful collisions are your bread and butter, so it was a wise decision by him. Apparently he could've toughed it out but after the 2 opening games he knew that he couldn't play at his desired level anymore. At that point he made up his mind to hang em up. Tbh Develin was lucky to get picked up by the Pats who love Fullbacks and know how to use them. Strong as an ox and mentally tough, Develin hardly ever missed one of his targets when paving the way for his RB and when p
  14. Came here to write about him. I didn't really know him until I watched tape today and I'm impressed. All I knew from various scouting reports that he had long arms and one of the most reliable hands in the draft. But what me actually impressed me most are his feet. I love his feet! He makes amazing ballerina tip-toe Santonio catches look effortless. It's no coincidence he makes them regularly and makes them look routine. His routes are delicious! Idk why this hasn't been brought up yet. Maybe it's bias because WRs with his body type are usually clumsy route runners. The sharpness of his cuts i
  15. Kirk Merritt will be a steal for the Dolphins and make some plays on his freakish athletcism alone. It's not like their WR unit is stacked or consistent at all. If he finds his way on the field watch out! Note that the Dolphins didn't select any WRs in this stacked class and they certainly needed a WR or two. Finally, don't underestimate Merritt developing good chemistry with Tua. Not so much that they are in the same rookie class, which helps though, but because they will get plenty reps together as they will run behind starters. For those who don't know Merritt: He played his fresh
