2015 Center/Fullback Preview

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014


Josh Keatley

For this preview I combined the center and fullback positions, because not many of these players are selected in the Draft. I also left out the key game section, because these are two positions where the schemes and styles will not vary much from week to week. Neither centers nor fullbacks have much room for bad games or inconsistent play.  (more…)

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. (more…)

2015 Guard Preview

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. (more…)

The offensive tackle position is arguably the most important in football, because no team can be successful without protection up front. A franchise can live and die by the right cornerstone being placed at tackle. The 2014 NFL Draft had five offensive tackles selected in the first round and the earliest was selected third overall. The 2015 class could be just as strong at the top and possibly even deeper depending on early departures. The first noticeable feature of this position group is the experience at the top with Cedric Ogbuehi, Brandon Scherff, and Cameron Erving headlining. (more…)

2015 Tight End Preview

Thursday, June 19th, 2014


Josh Keatley


The 2014 NFL Draft brought us three exciting and dynamic tight ends that were seen as potential high round selections. Even though Eric Ebron was the only one selected in the first round he went astoundingly high for the position at number ten. Austin Seferian- Jenkins, Jace Amaro, and even Troy Niklas were all taken in the second round. The impact and importance of the tight end position is only increasing as the NFL continues to progress as a passing league. Having an elite tight end such as a Jimmy Graham or Rob Gronkowski means more mismatches against defenses. The 2015 class should provide as much fire power as last year with a few dynamic receivers.

East Carolina has one quarterback already in the league, as Falcons backup Dominique Davis is a former Pirate. His successor in Goldsboro, Shane Carden, figures to join him in 2015.

Carden is a Houston native who honed his craft under the tutelage of former Texas Tech QB B.J. Symons. For those familiar with the Red Raiders offense, his influence is readily evident. Carden would fit right in the line with Symons, Taylor Potts or Graham Harrell.
