2015 DE Preview

July 30th, 2014


Josh Keatley


The defensive end position is the most exciting non- skill position to watch, because these guys are freaks. A top notch NFL DE is big, fast, and strong, they need to be able to physically dominate their opponent to be successful. The 2015 class looks to be an exciting mix of proven play-makers and untapped potential, this crop may not be as star studded as the Jadeveon Clowney 2014 class but it should have more depth. The Big Ten look to be the conference with the most pass rushing skill. Read the rest of this entry »

The Stanford Cardinal have been among the favorites in the Pac-12 for a few years running now, consistently churning out NFL talent in the process. Between their senior and junior crop this season, multiple draft picks should be expected, and a couple could state their case as first round picks. Read the rest of this entry »

No New Deal for Suh? Good!

Training camp started with a decidedly negative tone, as Lions Team President Tom Lewand told the gathered media that the team was suspending contract negotiations with Ndamukong Suh until after the season.

This bombshell dominated coverage on the first day of camp. While the timing is a bit of a surprise, the suspension of talks is not. And that speaks a whole lot more about Ndamukong Suh than it does the Detroit Lions. Read the rest of this entry »

Neither centers nor fullbacks have much room for bad games or inconsistent play.  Read the rest of this entry »

The Oregon State Beavers fell off a cliff when their schedule toughened up in 2013. They only lost a few of their top players from a year ago, so expectations should be higher. Their crop of senior prospects is mostly defensive with a pair of offensive prospects who have big question marks for the 2014 season. Players are listed in alphabetical order.

2015 Guard Preview

July 12th, 2014


Josh Keatley

With the passing game becoming increasingly important, finding protection for the quarterback comes at a premium price and that means the value of every position on the offensive line goes up. Interior offensive linemen have been getting drafted higher and higher, in 2014 Xavier Su’a Filo was the first selection in the second round and in 2013 both Jonathan Cooper and Chance Warmack went in the top ten. Guards are one of the best positions to scout, because they very rarely bust and this list should only change slightly. Read the rest of this entry »
