Factoid: Jarvis Landry

When it comes to Jarvis Landry, I think of two things. First of all, there’s the weird socks. He plays in footies, with his ankles actually exposed if you look carefully. Then he’s got sleeves that he wears to satisfy the league requirements that the lower leg must be covered. He’s the only guy I’ve ever seen wearing these kind of socks.  more »

Factoid: Cody Latimer

A year ago the Denver Broncos selected Cody Latimer in the second round. He didn't do anything as a rookie, but the Broncos need somebody to step up as their No. 3 receiver this year with Wes Welker gone. There's been some hype that maybe Latimer will be a big contributor.   more »

Factoid: Goal-line receiving

As I pick through the stats and research these guys, it seems like the tall wide receivers are always less productive than you would expect around the end zone. Calvin Johnson, Demaryius Thomas, Julio Jones and Jordy Nelson come to mind.   more »

Factoid: Sleeper running backs

I thought I would cleverly show how much running backs have been marginalized over the last 20 years. How in the past you had to select them in the first round, and now it doesn’t really make sense to select them that high. But what when I started looking at the numbers, it didn’t quite come together.   more »

Factoid: Third-round wide receivers

By the third round of the NFL Draft, your odds of picking a wide receiver who will turn out to be a great player fall to about 1 in 8. That's what the last 14 years of picks indicate, anyway.   more »

Factoid: Goal line passing

I like looking at passing stats at the goal line – inside the 10. That’s a measuring stick area of the field. If you put the ball in the end zone, or you don’t. And as the years go by and the attempts add up, it becomes apparent who’s good and who’s not.   more »

Factoid: C.J. Anderson

What are we supposed to make of C.J. Anderson? On the one hand, he’s a former undrafted free agent. He made Denver’s roster as an undrafted free agent two years ago and doesn’t have special speed or ability. But he sure was productive in the second half of last year, and he’s their clear No. 1 back heading into training camp.   more »

Ian Allan: Rookie receiver rankings

It’s early. Rankings will change based on where guys are drafted and how they’ll be used. Some of these guys will be asked to be primary-type receivers from the git-go, while others will be brought along slowly in a reserve role, running a limited route tree.   more »
