Listing the best landing spots for La’El Collins

Either La’El Collins is the most unlucky NFL draft prospect in history or he’s about to get in serious trouble. So far, though, he is still not suspected of having done anything wrong. Because of this murder case hanging over his head, Collins went undrafted over the weekend despite carrying a first round grade. If […]

Ten undrafted free agents that could become stars

The history of the NFL tells us that if a player goes undrafted, the odds of him making an NFL team are stacked against him. But, sometimes landing with the right team is just as important as getting drafted. One benefit for UDFA’s (undrafted free agents) is that they can pick the team they want […]

3 trade-up targets for Day 2 of the NFL draft

Let’s have some real talk here for a second: The first round of the NFL draft was boring. Oh sure, for a moment it was exciting for you, because your team likely selected a quality prospect who will fill a need and contribute immediately. With a few exceptions that was the script, and teams stuck […]

First round of NFL draft was boring

That was the most boring first round of a draft I’ve ever experienced. No big surprises, no big slides. The guy who was supposed to go first overall did, the guy who was widely expected to be picked second was. Those were the draft’s biggest names — both quarterbacks from high-profile schools — but neither […]

Jameis Winston gives his thumbs up to the NFL Draft

2015 NFL Draft: First Round Draft Grades

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- QB Jameis Winston, Florida State This was the obvious pick that everybody saw coming. I like Jameis, he’s a winner on the field but I’m apprehensive about his maturity level and his commitment to put in the hours to live up to being the #1 pick in the NFL Draft. Good […]

Dolphins’ Jordan on verge of becoming all-time bust

With the NFL Draft in full swing, fans and analysts alike will go back and forth as to which players and will boom and which ones will bust at the next level. While the excitement of the draft is sure to capture the headlines this week, a former third overall pick is rapidly making his […]

Why the Chicago Bears shouldn’t trade Martellus Bennett

The Chicago Bears offense isn’t exactly a juggernaut in its current form. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall is gone, taking his lengthy wingspan to the New York Jets. Running back Matt Forte will turn 30 late in 2015, and is coming off a season when he accounted for 35 percent of the Bears’ offensive yards while […]

Is Darrelle Revis better now than during his first stint with the Jets?

After stops in Tampa and Foxboro that spanned two years, All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis is back with the team that drafted him. And although he’s 29 with less tread on his tires now, Revis believes he’s better than he was earlier in his career with the New York Jets. “You know what? I think I’m […]

Hard to believe anybody wants Ray Rice

Nobody is interested in disgraced, over-the-hill running back Ray Rice. “Multiple sources” tell TMZ that teams — that’s right, plural — have expressed “legitimate interest” in Rice, but I simply don’t believe it. Rice isn’t just the poster boy for the NFL’s domestic violence problem, but he’s a 28-year-old running back with little tread on […]

The Jameis Winston/Jamarcus Russell comparison is absurd

The NFL Draft is now a day away and the consensus seems to be that Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston will go first overall to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. There has been plenty of debate as to whether or not Winston will succeed on the next level and last week, an unnamed NFL executive was […]

NEW YORK, NY - MAY 08:  Johnny Manziel of the Texas A&M Aggies poses with a jersey after he was picked #22 overall by the Cleveland Browns during the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft at Radio City Music Hall on May 8, 2014 in New York City.  (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)

Browns should think twice before trading up to draft a quarterback

Don’t do it, Cleveland. You’ve had enough cautionary tales by now, one as recently as last year when a trade up for the right to draft Johnny Manziel blew up in your face. As we established earlier this offseason, first-round quarterbacks have not been paying off at all in recent years. In fact, looking at […]

3 Free agents who should be signed shortly after the draft

There’s something wrong with a player who’s still unsigned in late April. The marquee names of free agency were gobbled up over a month ago, and now only the discarded and possibly broken misfits are avaliable. Which means they’re also heavily discounted, and right after the draft once-forgotten veterans are suddenly in demand again. Any […]

AFC East Players Who Desperately Need to Produce in 2015

The NFL Draft is less than a week away as teams gear up for what they hope will be a prosperous 2015 season. Last year in the AFC East, three teams finished with a record of .500 or better including the eventual Super Bowl champion New England Patriots. For all that went right for teams […]
