2013 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri

"Instinctive and reactionary with his hands, Richardson showcased a repertoire of rush moves to go along with his elite quickness. Moreover, Richardson is able to anchor against the run, squeeze through double teams, or chase down ball carriers to the sideline, as a well-rounded defensive lineman that can be an every down impact player. The […]

2013 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Jonathan Cyprien, S, Florida International

"Jonathan Cyprien is potentially just the 3rd first rounder ever from the Sun Belt conference. The last two were each picked #11 overall in 2005 (Demarcus Ware) and 2008 (Leodis McKelvin), and both were relatively unknown until just a few months before the draft, similar to Cyprien. But the best defensive player in FIU history […]

2013 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Quinton Patton, WR, Louisiana Tech

"Ideal for a West Coast-focused offense that is willing to stretch vertically, Patton developed great chemistry with Colby Cameron at Louisiana Tech, and could develop that quickly at the NFL level to become a quarterback's favorite target, especially on timing routes. With a fun, team-spirited personality, he quickly becomes a favorite in the locker room, […]

Ryan Nassib(2)

2013 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Ryan Nassib, QB, Syracuse

Once he develops chemistry and timing within the offense, Nassib can quickly become a capable NFL starter, with the football IQ, short-area athleticism, footwork, and steady college improvement to develop into a Pro Bowl level passer. His composure, consistency, and decisiveness throughout his game is what makes him a 1st round talent as a quarterback, […]

2013 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia

"Entering the season, Geno Smith was easily the most accurate quarterback I graded on tape. After another 4,200+ yard passing season in which he improved his completion percentage to 71.2 and increased his passing touchdowns from 31 to 42, Smith actually regressed in terms of ball placement and total accuracy. In 2011, his receivers were […]

2013 NFL Draft: Knile Davis Scouting Report

“Possessing subtle elusiveness to not give tacklers an direct target to strike, Davis constantly shrugged off arm tacklers to and through the hole, accelerating out to the 2nd and 3rd levels of the defense for big plays. Physically, Davis is an elite talent, with plus coordination, fluidity as a runner, change of direction skills, and […]

NFL Draft Scouting Report: Chris Polk, RB, Washington

“Polk was one of the fastest rising overall prospects throughout the 2011 college football season, and for good reason.  While he isn’t very flashy, he does everything well and is an exceptional runner.  He possesses intangibles that you see in great running backs and understands how to maximize that with his physical stature.  He played […]

NFL Draft Scouting Report: Nick Perry, DE, USC

“During the past two seasons, Perry has flashed the ability to dominate opponents and be a real difference maker for the USC defense.  What’s impressive is his production against top competition.  There is some great film evidence of his natural athleticism on display.  He put himself on the map as a freshman in 2009 when […]

NFL Draft Scouting Report: Bernard Pierce

“Bernard Pierce’s lack of great speed, elusiveness in space and down the field, and versatility as a running back prospect are strong concerns when projecting him to the NFL level. However, it’s his unique skill set that makes him a running back prospect that fits only a certain number of teams well, but can thrive […]

NFL Draft Scouting Report: Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M

“Ryan Tannehill is an extraordinarily gifted athlete, physical specimen, and has impressive character qualities to boot. Will likely blow up the combine and do very well in interviews. Really excels in the classroom as noted in the Background/Character section, and has the leadership qualities needed at the quarterback position. Has size/mobility combination to create 2nd […]

NFL Draft Scouting Report: Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State

“The biggest concern that will build momentum leading into the 2012 NFL Draft for Brandon Weeden, undoubtedly will be his age. As a 28 year old, a perceived inability to develop,  and limited upside bring reason to doubt Weeden’s long term success. Some have even gone as far to say he can only be a […]

NFL Draft Scouting Report: Devon Still, DT, Penn State

“A defensive leader for a Penn State team in need of one this season, Devon Still emerged into the feature role for this Penn State team in more ways than one. He was able to instill a sense of consistent urgency and focus to his team to which most responded and finished a tumultuous off-the-field […]

NFL Draft Scouting Reports: Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor

“A 4 year starter, Kendall Wright has caught a pass in every single collegiate game played (49 consecutive), holds the school record for receptions, and set new school records for receptions and receiving yards in a single season. He currently owns or shares more than 9 school records.  This season, Wright has recorded 6 or […]

NFL Draft Scouting Report: Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

“Trent Richardson may be the best running back to come out of college since Adrian Peterson. He possesses rare strength and speed for an individual his size. He has all the intangibles that you went in a player. Passionate about the game, has a great work ethic, and performs his best against the strongest of […]

NFL Draft Scouting Report: Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford

Perhaps no other offensive tackle prospect in this year’s draft (or even the past several drafts) has had the spotlight on them more so than Jonathan Martin.  As the protector of Andrew Luck’s blindside, he was prone to scrutiny had he allowed any defenders to hurt the quarterback prodigy.  Martin handled this pressure incredibly well […]
