  1. IFTTT is a fabulous rec. Feedly is another news resource I've personally found useful.
  2. Here is a rather large list for the NFL and CFB on a Google sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1SuNPAbhPNhnLdRFoWAcjLLr4E-TjgVYYXF3fLStWiEo/edit#gid=1733603661 Haven't checked them all but a few links may be broken. They are broken down by team.
  3. It wasn't that long ago the Colts picked up another touted UDFA after the draft. Tyler Varga was a Harvard boy that shined in camp and earned a spot on the Week 1 roster as the starting kick returner. I think he even got a few carries and caught some balls that week. He was headed towards a larger role, but a concussion put him on IR. He retired after the season. It's probably a bad decision to immediately dismiss Crossan.
  4. I'll take the Eagles
  5. Awesome! Especially the Dyer vid. I keep watching game cutups and updating my elusiveness stats spreadsheet. Hoping that the kindly people of the internet will provide more games of Dyer, Tevin Coleman, Josh Robinson, Cameron Artis-Payne, Jeremy Langford, Kenneth Dixon, Matt Jones, and David Johnson. Your spreadsheets are awesome. I'm trying to find the NC State game for Dyer, but I don't have it yet. I'm sure I'll do several of the guys you listed. I don' t think Dixon is coming out, but I may have missed him announcing otherwise. I did come across some other David Johnson cut-ups. They were made just a day or so ago so you may not have seen them yet. They are: vs Illinois State vs Missouri State vs North Dakota State Hope this helps.
  6. Started cutting up some games: Michael Dyer vs Florida State Brandon Wegher vs Nebraska Wesleyan one for the Devy crowd..... Nick Chubb vs Louisville (Belk Bowl) I plan on knocking out a lot more between now and May.
  7. Someone graded my team as the worst: 31. New England Patriots Offense – 8/35 Quarterback – 1/13 Neither Ryan Nassib nor Brett Smith is fit to run an offense. I see no choice other than to give this a 1 rating. Receiving corps – 3/8 I don’t think Torrey Smith is any more than a deep threat, and he won’t have Flacco’s arm this time around. Kendall Wright is good, but the rest is just potential at this point. Running backs – 1/4 There is quite a bit of potential in this area, perhaps enough to deserve bumping this a point. But, as it stands right now, there haven’t been great results from these names. Offensive line – 3/10 Lane Johnson and Brandon Brooks are both good linemen, but the rest of this group can be seen as a weakness. No tackle depth further hurts this score. Defense – 21/35 Pass rush – 11/14 J.J. Watt and Nick Fairley contribute greatly to this score, as they will provide significant pressure in the interior. Jamie Collins and Sio Moore have been productive as rushers as well and help this score. Run defense – 6/10 Once again most of this score comes from Watt and Fairley, as I think their interior disruption will mess with run games. However, no great run-stopping linebacker or safety keeps this score from being higher. Coverage – 4/11 This defensive backfield contains a bunch of CB2/3’s and some potential in Phillip Gaines. Coverage will be a big problem. Special Teams – 2/5 Youth/potential – 17/25 This team actually has a pretty good potential in a lot of areas, but this score is hurt a lot by a lack of a franchise QB and one huge whiff in the rookie draft (Jackson Jeffcoat).

WilcoxDS Josh Evans DS Antonio Allen DS Delano Howell (Retired - Injury)PN Sam Martin I haven't spent any effort looking over the other teams, but I have a difficult time believing mine was as bad as it was graded. I really wish we could have gone the distance in the draft before the majority quit so I could have had a full roster. Regardless, there were some questionable picks starting with the QB position. Smith was a big swing and miss, but I personally think the G-Men would of had a more successful season if they given the keys to Nassib. At some point, he's going to emerge. It might require a move out of NY. I still think he showed enough this year for savvy evaluators to project something other than him being a bum. The offensive line was absolutely bashed, but I think the analysis was way off target. My tackles, Johnson and Armstead, are arguably the most athletic in the league. I can't imagine a team not wanting to build around those two. Besides Brooks, the guys inside aren't that strong. Jerry is obviously the weak link and close to the end, but Bailey is extremely versatile and one of the most athletic lineman in the league as well. Johnston and Schofield are young and possess the ability to play inside or out. They just need a year or so in the weight room. I liked Kush coming out of college, but he's nothing more than depth. I'm not going to talk much about the skill guys, but I could live with every position on the team. I'd like to have gotten a couple of more upside guys for depth. Yes, I'd still have Da'Rick Rogers on my team if I were a real GM. In my opinion, the strength of this team would be the defensive side of the ball. Assuming we're playing a 3/4 - 4/3 mix: DE J.J. Watt (Glenn Foster) DT Nick Fairley (Kendall Reyes) DE Allen Bailey (Datone Jones) IB Mychal Kendricks (Devonte Holloman - Retired) IB Jelani Jenkins (Zavier Gooden) OB Jamie Collins OB Sio Moore (Jackson Jeffcoat) CB Davon House (Phillip Gaines) CB Cortez Allen (Tharold Simon, Steve Williams) SCB Josh Robinson SS J.J. Wilcox (Delano Howell - Retired) FS Josh Evans (Antonio Allen) The pressure from the front 7 would protect my secondary. I don't think there's an OL in the league who could handle it. Allen had a bad year at CB, but he's still dripping with potential. House and Robinson have been solid all season. Gaines and Simon are beginning to flash their skills. Williams was hurt early, but he'll get another opportunity. I'd like to have better safeties, but Wilcox, Evans and Allen are all versatile. Again, the pass rush would hide a lot of deficiencies in the back end. It's always difficult to be objective when you're talking your own team. At the same time, I thought it was too early to grade before the season began. It was a fun exercise, and I hope we do it again.
  8. Read in the IndyStar yesterday that he ran a 10.5 100 meters and jumped over 24 feet in the long jump during HS. I'm on your side.
  9. I'm not 100% sure but Coyle officially started last week. However, he saw all of 3 snaps. The play, in my opinion, is Pierre-Louis. He looked fantastic, and adds some much needed speed to the defense. It's the Raiders so Coyle may see a lot of action, but I'll be surprised if KPL doesn't significantly see more if the game is close.
  10. The guy that has really caught my interest since they drafted him is Kealoha Pilares. Unfortunately, he's had scant opportunity, and injuries have held him back a bit. Even though he possesses elite physical metrics, he's really not suited for the outside though. With the few touches he has received on O, he's made some dynamic plays.....they've all been bubble screens if memory services. He was the primary KR two seasons ago, and will likely compete with Barner for the job this year since Ginn is gone. Joseph Person did say he stood out during OTA's. He's certainly a longshot, but I'm not going to be surprised if he sticks. I've been surprised with Marvin McNutt's lack of success at the NFL level. He had a terrific college career at Iowa, and I expected him to make some noise on the big stage. I'm not sure what the problem is....he tested tell across the board. I know he's not that sudden and has had some issues separating. He just turned 25. Perhaps he can put it together.
  11. Zach Zenner is a guy I think will get a chance at the next level. Unfortunately, I recently read he's more interested in going to medical school. I'd like to see him put it on hold because I think he could find success on the big stage. I cut one of him games against NAU a couple of months ago: http://youtu.be/SX7bf3peg_M?list=UU_daA5gM0OTdji4JOy3w60A I finally got my hands on the Nebraska game. He was taken out with 10 minutes to go, but he absolutely shredded the Cornhuster D to the tune of 200+ yards. He flashes speed, explosiveness and agility. http://youtu.be/OOgP__4I3d8?list=UU_daA5gM0OTdji4JOy3w60A Also, there wasn't any tape of Shock Linwood floating around so I cut his Texas Tech game for anyone interested: http://youtu.be/ZvlLG2KM5KY?list=UU_daA5gM0OTdji4JOy3w60A
  12. FWIW, I cut his Old Dominion game from last year before he broke his leg. http://youtu.be/OgC-hr50ye8?list=UU_daA5gM0OTdji4JOy3w60A
  13. I love following threads like this. Below are some under the radar prospects that have an excellent shot to be returners: Chris Williams - 4.28 speed that Trestman poached off the Saints PS late last season. Was a CFL star who took 6 returns for TD's one season including 2 against Trestman in one game. Trestman lured him from the Saints to the tune of a 100k signing bonus. Has added value as an accomplished slot receiver. His highlights are impressive..... http://youtu.be/MEDRSRZgHQs Michael Ford, a 2nd year RB from LSU, is another impressive physical specimen that will compete at RB. If I had to guess, Williams will be the PR with Ford returning kickoffs. Alan Bonner - Late round pick by the Texans in 2013 who spent his rookie year on IR. Has slot skills as well, and the Keshawn Martin experiment has been a disappointment. People close to the team reported that Bonner has impressed O'Brien all off-season. Explosive with the ball in his hands. http://youtu.be/TeT7i7A5G_E Kealoha Pilares - The Panthers KR two season ago. Was on IR last season with ACL plus Ginn took the job. Former 5th rounder with elite physical metrics. Won't be surprised if he spends a lot of time at WR either. Easily the most athletic / explosive WR currently on the roster. Will likely compete with Barner for the KR job. Potential to pull double duty at KR and PR. http://youtu.be/3keBzhOtknA http://youtu.be/5Mx04TcSCxI http://youtu.be/fecIepjktT8 (at WR) Josh Boyce Bernard Reedy (explosive PR that has to make Falcons roster first) Albert Wilson (Chiefs UDFA)
  14. I am in a Google spreadsheet. I'm still far from finished, but I'm using numbers provided by difference sources......like one's already mentioned, prospects that may have participated in a Nike SPARQ event, NFLDS etc etc. I still have a lot more to enter, but I'll get there. Stupid me forgot to share the link.... https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1n5hI4kWH4G2GrFR-zKN7OEcNu41sn2H5fon-C1mDCQk/pubhtml
