Washington Huskies Scouting Preview

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Washington v Stanford

Darren Page

The Huskies haven’t had more than two players selected in the same draft since 2004, when they had four selected. They only had one in 2013 and two in 2014. A crooked number should be the expectation for 2015, even before the possible entries of a pair of talented underclassmen. This 2014 squad is strongest up front where they return every starter on both offensive and defensive lines. A few of these guys are quality prospects too. (more…)

Utah enters the 2014 season still looking to gain a firm foothold in the Pac-12. The Utes had two draftees in May. They’ll have a tough time getting two on the board again in 2015 unless a prospect rises to match the quality of Dres Anderson. (more…)

This class looks to be full of athleticism and some great pass rushers. A lot of the players on this list have only produced the last season, but if they can show consistency and continue to produce then they should find themselves being selected very high in next year’s draft. Clemson prospect Vic Beasley looks to be a sure thing and he struggled to not declare after his explosion onto the scene last season. If he can continue to show his elite ability then it would be hard to imagine him not being selected early in next year’s first round.

Making Sense of Bryce Petty and the Baylor Bears

Sunday, August 17th, 2014

Bryce-Petty

Darren Page

Bryce Petty enters the 2014 season as one of the top rated senior quarterbacks. His Baylor Bears, led by offensive mastermind Art Briles, have run roughshod over most of their competition since the meteoric rise of Robert Griffin III in 2011. The Bears finished fourth, fourth, and sixth in the three seasons since in passing yards per game in FBS. Statistical outputs didn’t change drastically from Robert Griffin III’s big year to Nick Florence’s the next to Bryce Petty’s the next after. There’s no doubting the effectiveness of Briles’ system, but it blurs the evaluation of Petty. (more…)

Despite having five underclassmen declare for the previous draft (three of which went undrafted), USC brings back an experienced team with a few seniors that look like early round selections in 2015. (more…)


2015 Defensive Tackle Preview

A great defensive line can make the most pedestrian linebacker core and defensive backfield look amazing. Every NFL team places great stock in this, the 2014 NFL Draft was a great example. With the first selection the Houston Texans drafted Jadeveon Clowney, even though they had no legitimate quarterback they decided to continue to emphasize their already star- studded D- line. The men on the interior are not as flashy as the ends, because they lack the athleticism and sack numbers fans crave, but defensive tackles play an important role.  (more…)
