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%)

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 »

Andy Richardson: Skill Position Mock Draft

The NFL Draft begins tonight, and there are no shortage of mocks around so you can find out where various professional draft watchers (that's a thing) think everyone will go. I'm not going to predict who will take this cornerback or that guard, but I will make some guesses as to where the top 10 skill position guys -- the ones more fantasy owners actually care about -- end up.   more »

Scheduletron: Strength of schedule

The schedule came out about a week back. That’s not a gigantic deal, since we’ve all known all along which teams would be playing which opponents and where. It’s really just the order of the games that was revealed. But there was one factor I wanted to circle back and address.  more »

Around the NFL: Little consensus (or love) for draft's wideouts

On the eve of the NFL Draft, we can say with some degree of confidence who the draft's most-loved players are at some positions. Goff and Wentz at quarterback, Elliott at running back. At wide receiver, though, you might get four different answers from four different teams.   more »

Factoid: Seattle Seahawks

Seattle’s wide receivers were remarkably effective last year – and not just Doug Baldwin. When Russell Wilson passed to those guys, good things tended to happen.   more »
