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 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.

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…)

UCLA Bruins Scouting Preview

Monday, August 4th, 2014

Darren Page

The UCLA senior class is not as strong as it has been in recent years in terms of prospects. A couple guys weren’t in the blue and gold a season ago, whether hurt or in transfer limbo. Eric Kendricks is clearly the best senior prospect at the moment, but all eyes will be on junior quarterback Brett Hundley in 2014. (more…)
