Factoid: NFL draft

It’s an unusually good year for tight ends in the draft. O.J. Howard will be selected in the first round, and he might be joined for a few others.  more »

Around the NFL: Benny Cunningham

Sometimes the second wave of free agency is as interesting as the first. That's when players sign for less money and less fanfare, but you never know -- there's opportunity with those players in fantasy leagues. They won't be coveted in drafts, but could wind up being usable pieces.   more »

Factoid: Philadelphia Eagles

The tendency is to believe the Cowboys and Eagles have solved the quarterback position for the foreseeable future, and maybe they have. Dak Prescott and Carson Wentz did a lot of good things last year. But looking at the career arcs of previous quarterbacks, I get a little more nervous about those guys.  more »

Andy Richardson: Mike Williams

In the movie Office Space, programmer Michael Bolton is asked why he doesn't go by "Mike" to avoid comparisons with the singer. He responds, "Why should I change? He's the one who sucks." I think of that when I consider Clemson wide receiver Mike Williams, who will be one of the first pass catchers drafted next month.   more »

Factoid: Bounce-back receivers

A lot of wide receivers this season are coming off lousy years. Brandon Marshall, DeAndre Hopkins and Allen Robinson, most notably, all were really good two years ago, and they all fell really short of expectations last year. Can any of these guys rebound?  more »

Around the NFL: Josh McCown

The Jets have signed Josh McCown, and although the guaranteed money isn't huge for a starting quarterback in today's NFL ($6 million), it's pretty much a given he'll be the Week 1 starting quarterback on a rebuilding team.

When a player is catching a bunch of balls, is the correct course to project that will even out, with the touchdown coming the following year?  more »

Factoid: Leonte Carroo

There's a story about Leonte Carroo in the Miami Herald; the Dolphins' third-round pick a year ago. He seemed to be in line for a potential increased role if the team let Kenny Stills walk in free agency, but Stills was re-signed, joining Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker atop the depth chart. Obviously, it's not a positive for Carroo doing anything in 2017.   more »

Trivia: March 20, 2017

The Texans have never used a first-round pick on a running back. What other four teams have gone over 25 straight years without selecting a running back in the first round? answer »

Factoid: Rookie receivers

Yesterday I took a brief look at the tendency of heralded rookie wide receivers to fall short of expectations. Despite expectations and hopes, a good chunk of the rookie receivers putting up big numbers are players who weren’t as coveted coming out of the draft.   more »
