[Dynasty] 2018 Draft Class

Recommended Posts

Auburn senior RB Kerryon Johnson rushed for 204 yards and three touchdowns on 28 carries in Saturday's 44-23 win over Ole Miss.

Johnson scored all three of his touchdowns in the first half as Auburn opened the game in dominant fashion, hitting halftime holding a 35-3 lead. The 6-foot-5, 195-pound senior has boasted a fantastic nose for the end zone this season. Despite having missed two games while nursing a hamstring injury, Johnson has now already scored 12 touchdowns -- one more than he notched in 12 games last season.

6’5 195 is a strange h/w combo for a rb

Oregon senior Royce Freeman (shoulder) ran for 62 yards on 12 carries in the 33-10 loss to Washington Sate on Saturday.

Freeman (6'0/229) was effective when he ran the ball, but he clearly wasn't 100 percent, and the Ducks clearly had the senior on a pitch count, and his touches were also limited by the game flow -- game flow being code for not-very-good Oregon defense in this case. Freeman should see more carries next week against Stanford.

Washington state senior QB Luke Falk threw for three touchdowns and 282 yards on 24-of-42 passing in an easy 33-10 victory over Oregon on Saturday.

Falk (6'4/223) certainly wasn't bad against the Ducks, but he was surprisingly inaccurate, particularly on the deep balls. That being said, he still was able to hit his receivers on-time, and he added three more scores to his ledger; a ledger that already holds most of the Washington State records. Falk should have a field day next week against the Cal defense.

The guy that's getting no love is Damien Williams.  Definite 1.01 candidate.  Another deep class on the way.

Toledo senior WR Cody Thompson suffered a broken leg in Saturday's win over Eastern Michigan.

Thompson (6'2/200) sustained the broken leg during Toledo's first offensive drive on Saturday. The injury will likely keep him out for the remainder of the season. It's an absolutely brutal loss for the Rockets, as the senior had been working to a sharp 28-537-4 receiving line prior to going down injured. Diontae Johnson, Jon'Vea Johnson and Danzel McKinley will see the bulk of targets moving forward with Thompson sidelined for potentially the remainder of the campaign.

NFLDraftScout's Dane Brugler believes Alabama junior RB Damien Harris deserves more love.

Brugler notes in three SEC games this season Harris is averaging 10.4 yards per carry, along with three touchdowns. We all know Bo Scarbrough's name and monstrous frame, but Harris offers real big play upside. In those three games Harris has long runs of 46, 61 and 75 yards.

I would take Mayfield and Rudolph over Darnold if the season ended today.

Rashaad Penny, RB, San Diego State

2017 Stats: 116 carries for 823 yards (7.1 average), 7 TDs; 14 catches for 119 yards (8.5 average), 2 TDs; 5 kickoff returns for 203 yards (40.6 average), 1 TD.
Like Love, Penny had big shoes to fill with the all-time leading rusher in FBS history, Donnel Pumphrey, leaving for the NFL. He's stepped up his game, pressing the line while leading the 5-0 Aztecs to wins over Pac-12 foes Arizona State (216 yards, one TD) and Stanford (175 yards on 32 carries, one TD). He's second to Love in rushing yards per game (164.6) and has San Diego State thinking about a bowl berth against a Power Five team.

ESPN's Todd McShay doesn't believe that Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield possesses an elite trait to compensate for his lack of size, "like Russell Wilson's scrambling ability or Drew Brees' accuracy."

Even so, McShay continues to rank Mayfield ahead of Luke Falk and Lamar Jackson. He grades Mayfield as a Day 2 or early Day 3 pick. McShay's colleague Mel Kiper grades Mayfield slightly higher. "I ... see him bailing out of the pocket too much on film," he wrote. "Scouts would like to see him climb the pocket instead of scrambling, though he's fun to watch when he does. He's a Day 2 pick at this point." This year, Mayfield is 100-of-134 passing (74.6 percent) for 1,635 yards with a pristine 15/0 TD/INT rate.

ESPN's Mel Kiper believes Washington State senior QB Luke Falk is a sleeper who could sneak into the first round "if he has a great pre-draft process."

"He's the best of these quarterbacks at working the pocket, but he's also probably the least athletic," Kiper wrote. Kiper's colleague Todd McShay lists Falk as the No. 6-ranked quarterback right now.

West Virginia redshirt junior QB Will Grier has the highest big-time throw percentage of the top 13 draft-eligible quarterbacks according to Pro Football Focus.

According to PPF, Grier (6'2/215) has made a big-time throw -- the highest graded throws possible -- on 8.9 percent of his passes. Grier also ranks near the top in overall grades with a score of 90.9. To say that he's proven worth the hype after having to sit out 2016 is an understatement. Look for him to improve these numbers against Texas Tech on Saturday.

ESPN's Mel Kiper doesn't believe that Louisville junior QB Lamar Jackson is a lock to be a first-round pick.

Kiper tossed out the possibility that a team could stash him on a redshirt year, like the Chiefs are doing with Patrick Mahomes. He did add Jackson to his Big Board about a month ago, an indication that Kiper himself views Jackson as a Round 1 talent. Todd McShay doesn't. He ranks Jackson as the class' No. 7 QB, behind Mason Rudolph, Baker Mayfield and Luke Falk. "I still need to see more from him before I'm comfortable moving him up," McShay wrote. McShay grades Jackson as a Day 2 or early Day 3 pick.

Pitt redshirt senior WR Jester Weah caught seven passes for 106 yards and a touchdown in the school's 35-17 loss to NC State on Saturday.

Weah looked great and scored on a 33-yard score when he got behind NC State's secondary. He's an impressive mover at 6-foot-3 and 190-pounds. Just two games ago Weah recorded 157 receiving yards.

West Virginia junior WR David Sills caught six passes for 89 yard and three touchdowns in Saturday's 46-35 victory over Texas Tech.

Sills (6'4/203) now has multiple touchdown catches in five of six games this year. One of the nation's breakout starts of 2017, Sills now boasts a 39-601-12 line with half the regular season left to play.
