Factoid: Drops

I’m changing how I’m handling drops. Over the weekend, I saw an article referring to one of these drafted players having dropped 8 passes in college versus 253 receptions, and I think that’s the most logical way to go.   more »

Factoid: Derrick Henry

The Titans selected Derrick Henry in the second round of the draft, and although they also have DeMarco Murray, the plan no doubt is for Henry to eventually be the team's featured runner. There have been more misses than hits in the second this century, as Tennessee is well aware.   more »

Trivia: May 2, 2016

When Southern Cal and Notre Dame played in 1978, the game featured two players who went on to become Super Bowl MVPs and Pro Football Hall-of-Famers. They also ended their pro careers on the same team. Who are these two legends? answer »

Factoid: Denver Broncos

Broncos select Paxton Lynch, and that’s kind of exciting. He’s like a more athletic version of Brock Osweiler – runs better and has a slightly better arm. He’s got the Super Bowl cast around him, and they just need to give him the proper seasoning to get him going. But is it that easy?   more »

Around the NFL: Ravens running backs

The Ravens drafted Louisiana Tech running back Kenneth Dixon in the fourth round of yesterday's draft. He was a highly productive college player, but he joins what seems to be a crowded running back situation in Baltimore. Or maybe cluttered is a better term.   more »

Factoid: Tampa Bay

It’s unusual to see kickers picked early. Conventional wisdom is you can find decent enough kickers on the street. But the Bucs like Roberto Aguayo enough that they not only selected him in the second round but traded up to get him.   more »

Who was the starting quarterback for the Vikings the last time they didn’t rank in the bottom 10 in passing yards? answer »

Factoid: Rookie running backs

We've been hearing for years about the devaluation of the running back position. There was some pre-draft talk that aside from Ezekiel Elliott, this draft class was short on talent. Both of those arguments got some support from the first three rounds of the 2016 NFL draft.   more »

Ian Allan: Rookie wide receivers

I like the Corey Coleman pick. I posted a blurb about him last month, wondering why the consensus had Laquon Treadwell as the best receiver in this draft. Treadwell seems to be a bigger, slower receiver like Michael Crabtree or Hakeem Nicks.  more »

Factoid: Ezekiel Elliott

The Dallas Cowboys selected Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott, an exciting mix of the draft's top rookie running back with the NFL's top offensive line. If that weren't enough, there's the recent history of running backs selected in the top 10. Teams seldom bring such players along slowly.   more »

Corey Coleman, Cleveland (0%)
Will Fuller, Houston (0%)

Factoid: Coby Fleener

I’ve been kicking around the prospects for Coby Fleener. The Saints gave him the big contract, and they’ve tended to use their tight ends. Even without Jimmy Graham, their tight ends last year caught 101 passes and 11 TDs. Benjamin Watson put up top-10 numbers.   more »
