Faust, I don't think you necessarily get the props for doing what you do -- just wanted to say that it's appreciated. Not only are you taking the time to do all this for this community, you go to

Just finished my one and only dev draft of the year. 2020-eligible players only. This is a TE-premium league, but none were taken. Bryan Edwards was out of the pool due to being taken last year.

Sorry if posted before, but this was interesting. Best/Value picks and tendencies of GMs. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001108562/article/nfl-draft-guide-each-gms-best-pick-top-value-pick-

Is it too late for players to declare for the nfl draft? Wondering if some guys might look at the prospect of there being no college season or a shortened season and may decide to opt for this draft.

The deadline to declare for the NFL Draft has passed. The only avenue for a college player to change their mind to enter the NFL would be to attempt to be declared eligible for the NFL supplemental draft.

What is the NFL Supplemental Draft?

Excerpt:

Quote

What is the supplemental draft and who is eligible for it?

The supplemental draft is a means by which underclassmen who become ineligible for the college football season after the deadline to enter the NFL’s regular draft can enter the league. To be declared eligible for the supplemental draft, a player must file a petition, which is reviewed on a case-by-case basis. In Pryor’s case, while he was eligible to return from his suspension midseason, he recently forfeited his college eligibility by hiring agent Drew Rosenhaus.

The supplemental draft is held after the regular draft, which takes place in April, and before the season begins. All players must be at least three years removed from high school.

I actually thought of this a few weeks ago for a few of the RB's who opted to remain another year. My thought process was if they remained in school another year hoping for a better CBA more favorable to RB's not sure they got what they hoped.

But I got to wonder if this could get interesting for some college players for the reason Snorkelson asked.

Anyone know when the deadline is for the supplemental draft?

There typically is not a lot of information available on who has been granted eligibility into the NFL supplemental draft until June as that draft is later in the year.

Here is an article from last year:

NFL supplemental draft 2019: Date, what it is, how it works, eligible players, pick history

I doubt that you will see Travis Etienne, Najee Harris, or Chuba Hubbard apply for the supplemental draft this year.

DARRYNTON EVANS RB, APPALACHIAN STATE MOUNTAINEERS

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah believes Appalachian State RB Darrynton Evans may be drafted as early as the beginning of the third round. 

Not many analysts or projections have Evans (5'10/203) as a potential top-75 pick right now, which makes Jeremiah's statement all the more interesting. Jeremiah write Evans has been "extremely busy" with Skype interviews and that teams are enamored with his "speed and versatility." If Evans does indeed get drafted early in the third round, teams such as the Dolphins, Chargers, Cardinals, and Jaguars all make sense as potential landing spots in that range.

NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah says SMU WR James Proche has the best hands in the class. 

To be the best at anything in this stacked WR class is quite the complement. While having quality hands is only one piece of the puzzle, a WR's job at the end of the day is to catch the ball -- how they arrive at that point can vary wildly from player to player. For Proche, the avenue with which he arrives at a catch point does not matter because he has the tools to come down with the ball regardless. Whether reaching over his back shoulder, tracking a ball down the field, or diving low to scoop a pass just above the turf, Proche has the flexibility and strong hands to bring in anything in his vicinity, even with a modest 5-foot-11 and 201-pound build. Proche is likely still a Day 3 pick, but the reliability he may provide could be useful for a number of teams right now.

The PFF Analytics Mock Draft 2.0

Quote

 

We have two primary concerns when making each pick:

1. Positional value – Our goal isn’t to pick the eventual rookie of the year, it’s to win a Super Bowl. Saquon Barkley is awesome at his job, but his job doesn’t contribute to winning nearly as much as that of his quarterback. Players who impact the passing game have the most value, and that is reflected here.

2. Our college-to-pro projections – We take into account how each player grades in different situations in college and train algorithms to project performance into a set of NFL situations. We also take into account the prospect's athletic profile with respect to each facet of play. Here is a more in-depth look at these projections for stud playmaker Isaiah Simmons from Clemson, for example.

We also give consideration to team needs when there is a close call between two equally valuable picks. ...

According to Pro Football Focus, Washington State QB Anthony Gordon was the most accurate QB on throws delivered on 2.5 seconds or less.

Gordon (6'3/210) posted a 82.2 completion percentage according to PFF College's analysis. He edged out Joe Burrow's 81.1 completion percentage and Kedon Slovis' 80.8 percent mark. The inexperienced QB still needs development on his footwork but his touch and accuracy shows promise. If Gordon can distance himself from the 'system quarterback' designation that tends to follow air raid quarterbacks, he could be a solid late-round value for whichever team that selects him.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller reports "multiple teams" have Oregon QB Justin Herbert ranked over Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa. 

Purely in terms of which traits the NFL tends to favor, this report is not all that surprising. Older NFL decision makers love tall, strong-armed quarterbacks, especially ones who started all four years in college with a fair amount of success. Whether or not this actually culminates on Herbert being selected over Tagovailoa is to be seen, but it only takes one team to make the move. Given Tagovailoa's average size and arm strength, in addition to his lingering hip issue, do not be surprised if Herbert hears his name called before Tagovailoa does.

Pro Football Network's Tony Pauline writes Kentucky WR Lynn Bowden could be a "return specialist."

Finding a true position for Bowden (6'1/199) is a tricky job, but on special teams, it doesn't matter. None of that position designation mumbo jumbo means anything on special teams. QB, RB, WR, whatever -- Bowden could make a great returner regardless of what he plays on offense. Pauline writes Bowden is an "explosive athlete" with a "rough-and-tumble style" to the way he carries the ball. If a team can snag Bowden on Day 3, they just may find themselves an elite returner who could be groomed into an offensive weapon.

9 of the  top 24 picks are WRs is a bold mock

Its not a 'predictive mock' its an ANALYTICS Mock.

I noted their two criteria with team needs being the tie breaker.  Basically its a mock that 'seems' to be based more on which prospects project to 'make-it' in the NFL rather than who teams will actually take.  Its NOT a regular/traditional draft.  This is the link to PFF's 'traditional' mock from six days ago.  >>  LINK  >>  2020 Post-Free Agency Mock Draft:  By Michael Renner Mar 25, 2020    This is what we think will happen, not what we would do.

Pro Football Network's Tony Pauline noted that one of Oregon QB Justin Herbert's positives is his poise in the pocket.

"Patient in the pocket, sells ball fakes and looks away from covered targets," Pauline wrote in his analysis of Herbert. "Goes through progressions, senses the rush and only leaves the pocket as a last resort." The 6-foot-6, 237-pound signal-caller led Oregon to a Pac-12 title and win in the Rose Bowl as a senior, and the expectation is that he'll be off the board within the first ten picks of next month's draft. As for Herbert's weaknesses, Pauline made note of the fact that he was "streaky and inconsistent" at times "in all areas."
