Did Tim Tebow help himself at the combine?
I’ve tried not to talk too much about Tim Tebow this offseason. He probably won’t be drafted higher than the mid-2nd round and no prospect in that range deserves the attention that Tebow receives from the major media outlets. But I do feel the need to address his performance at the combine on Sunday. Tebow [...]
Dexter McCluster disappoints in the 40
Diminutive Ole Miss running back/receiver Dexter McCluster ran an extremely disappointing 4.58 forty-yard dash today. According to Daniel Jeremiah of the MoveTheSticks.com no one had him clocked at faster than a 4.57. 40 times rarely hurt a player significantly, but for a guy who measured in a 5’9″, 172 pounds, this is a huge blow [...]
A closer look at Bruce Campbell
Well by now I’m sure you’ve all heard about the next great left tackle, Bruce Campbell. Fresh off his 4.85 forty-yard dash and 38 reps on the bench press, some have gone so far as to say he’s the most impressive physical specimen they’ve ever seen. We all thought Tim Tebow was going to be [...]
Dolphins meet with Golden Tate
According to the Miami Herald the Dolphins met with Golden Tate on Friday evening. Its highly unlikely that Bill Parcells would consider selecting Tate, or any receiver, with the 12th pick. But even if he fell to the 2nd round I’m not sure he’s a great fit for the Dolphins. What the Dolphins need is [...]
A closer look at Anthony Davis
I’ve noticed more and more mock drafts have Anthony Davis placed in the top 10 lately. I certainly don’t dispute that it could happen, team’s have made far worse top-10 picks in the past, but in my opinion Davis is far from a top-10 prospect. The New York Post ran a revealing story on Davis [...]
“Longshot” that Anderson and Quinn will be back in Cleveland
On Friday Mike Holmgren said what we’ve long assumed: that either Derek Anderson or Brady Quinn will be traded or released this offseason. When asked if they’ll both be on the roster this season he responded: “I think it’s a longshot, but never say never. But I’ve gone on record saying I don’t like quarterback [...]
Schefter guarantees Rams will take Sam Bradford
ESPN’s Adam Schefter made a bold prediction on Thursday that has NFL buzzing. “I would like to record something here, on February 24th. Two months from the draft. And tell you who the number one pick is gonna be right now… When all is said and done, that the Rams’ number one pick on April [...]
Where will Brian Westbrook land?
The Eagles announced that they will part ways with veteran running back Brian Westbrook earlier this week. The move doesn’t come as a surprise, but it should make teams extremely hesitant to acquire the 30-year-old running back. LeSean McCoy will be the feature back in Philly, but the Eagles lack a reliable backup. Behind McCoy [...]
Brandon Graham is not the next LaMarr Woodley
I’m a big fan of Michigan’s Brandon Graham but I’ve heard too many people compare him to LaMarr Woodley, and its just not a fair comparison. Just because they both played defensive end at Michigan, doesn’t mean they’ll have similar NFL careers. Apparently I’m not alone. The man who drafted Woodley, Steelers GM Kevin Colbert, [...]
Who will start at ILB for the Giants in 2010?
There’s no question what the Giants biggest need is this offseason. By parting ways with Antonio Pierce, the Giants opened up a gaping hole at inside linebacker. The in-house option as Pierce’s replacement would be 2008 5th-round pick Jonathan Goff. After Pierce went down with a season ending neck injury this past season, the Giants [...]
