Nine months ago, University of Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison lied crumpled on Legion Field during the Birmingham Bowl against East Carolina. A gruesome knee injury knocked Morrison out of the remainder of Florida’s bowl game. Even the most optimistic timetable for Morrison’s recovery predicted he would be sidelined for at least several weeks of the […]
The college football season is moving along and quarterbacks all over the country are altering their draft stock with their play, both good and bad. Unfortunately, good quarterback play is harder to come by than we like to admit. Paxton Lynch is not a profound prospect, but he played well against South Florida and showed […]
It was an lackluster week in the NFL; A lot of sloppy football and ho-hum matchups. However, the picture has begun to get a bit clearer at the quarter pole of the season. The biggest storyline, as of today, was the firing of Joe Philbin from the Dolphins. Interim Head Coach Dan Campbell will surely bring […]
One chaotic week in college football has completely changed the playoff landscape, with teams either recovering from early losses (Alabama), suffering crushing defeats (Notre Dame, Georgia), or continuing surprising early dominance (Florida). See the news that will make an impact on the next week of an unpredictable season here.
We are completely diving into the conference schedule and have plenty of great league match-ups in week five. This week consists of five ranked versus ranked team match-ups, meaning there is plenty of NFL draft talent to go around. To kickoff Saturday, the first top 25 battle consists of West Virginia and Oklahoma with some […]
A utility player with no true position manages to earn the starting spot at running back and becomes the offensive leader of his team – sound a little too much like a Hollywood script? Notre Dame’s C.J. Prosise is blurring the lines between fiction and reality, setting the nation on fire while keeping the playoff […]
Much like last season, TCU’s matchup with Texas Tech came down to the wire this weekend. Trevone Boykin threw a miracle, tipped touchdown pass to seal the game away with less than one minute to go. Though Boykin played fine and stressed the Texas Tech defense with more than just his arm, the real star […]
NFL Week 3 has given us some great games to watch, as well as some pretty abysmal performances from the bottom of the barrel teams (we’re looking at you San Francisco and Miami). So far, the teams to beat appear to be New England, Green Bay, and Arizona. Things should start to get interesting next […]
The playoff and prospect picture continues to shape as we hit the one-month mark of the season. Stay on top of all the latest college football player news with this week’s Monday update.
Almost reaching the over/under in the first half, North Carolina State took advantage of three South Alabama turnovers turning them into ten points. Behind a dominating rushing attack the Wolfpack finished the first half with 190 yards rushing with 88 from Matthew Dayes along with his three touchdowns. The junior finished the night with 150 […]
In this week’s Scouting Notebook, I look into Memphis QB Paxton Lynch, who isn’t a household name yet, but that time may not be far away. Also, why Josh Rosen is more than a good story; he’s among the country’s best quarterbacks. And, I look at TCU’s Big Three on offense and why we were […]
“Get-r-done” may be the catchy slogan this week, as college football will host plenty of playoff elimination games this Saturday. An in-state showdown with the high scoring Horned Frogs and Red Raiders should be a fun one to watch for those that like points. The quarterback match-ups this week do not fall short of intrigue […]
At this point in the college football season and evaluation process, 2016 NFL Draft rankings are highly fluid. We focus on seniors primarily (with top-10 juniors included at the end), aiming to solidify their grades throughout the process. In our initial Big Board, Ronnie Stanley tops the board as the class’s best senior offensive lineman, with Ohio […]
Character evaluations and injury concerns are factored into our grades, but not to the level they will be once information is more readily apparent later in the process. Please note that we generally factor that if a offensive lineman can potentially play offensive tackle in the NFL, we leave him at tackle in our rankings, […]
The Georgia Bulldogs have turned to a variety of talented quarterbacks in the last several seasons. From Matthew Stafford, the first overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, to Aaron Murray, the SEC leader in career passing yards. While Junior Greyson Lambert may not have had the same notoriety coming into the season as some […]
Another UCLA player’s season has come to an end because of injury. Linebacker Myles Jack suffered a “significant knee injury” at practice earlier today, according to the Orange County Register’s Joey Kaufman, and will miss the remainder of the season.
To this point, the Quantifying Quarterbacks series has highlighted underwhelming performances. This week ends that streak as we delve into Jared Goff’s outing versus Texas. This may be the first quality performance of the series, but, as the series was intended to expose, there is a lot more to Goff’s statline than the surface shows.
The second week of the NFL is officially in the books. This week, we had a rookie lead their respective team in Pro Football Focus grades and another rookie show up in the top three players for their team. This will be an ongoing series throughout the regular season that will recognize the top performing […]
After Week 1’s kneejerk reaction, the dust has seemingly settled on a few areas (particularly the Bills as contenders in the East), we still have constants in the Patriots and Packers. However, the futures of Chip Kelly, Joe Philbin, and others still remain cloudy and we’ll likely need a few more weeks of football until […]
Week two saw plenty of upsets like Stanford upending the Heisman favorite Cody Kessler, LSU and Notre Dame earning top-20 victories, and Ole Miss starting a changing of the guard atop the SEC West in their victory over Alabama. In this Scouting Notebook, I take a look at why Chad Kelly is more than a […]
See all the latest news and injury reports that will make an impact on teams in the coming week and beyond.
No giants have yet to be taken down by David, at least not all the way down as Auburn was certainly close escaping last week versus Jacksonville State, and none of the top dogs have yet to be depleted coming away with a big loss. Now bring on week three. The week of top tier […]
Last week, the Quantifying Quarterbacks series opened up by analyzing Cardale Jones’ with the lens that he has not yet earned his status as a top quarterback. This week, the series follows a similar path by looking into Gunner Kiel’s messy performance versus Temple. A matchup against the Temple defense is more intimidating than it […]
The NFL season has finally begun and the rookies from this past draft class made a lot of noise during the first week of the season. This will be an ongoing series throughout the regular season that will recognize the top performing rookies on offense and defense.
At the start of the season, virtually every SEC team expected sophomore defensive linesman Myles Garrett to build off his outstanding freshman debut as the main force of an otherwise-lackluster Texas A&M defense. What they probably did not expect was a second Aggies defensive linesman to take the pressure off Garrett and prove his worth […]
