The Friday Sports Report – 2017 NFL Draft Predictions

We’ll take a look at some offense this Friday and come back to look at the defense next week. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes will be drafted in the top 10 More and more I believe that GMs and scouts are much higher on Patrick than the analytical community, and in my opinion they should be. He’s the top rated passer on our board and he possesses the highest ceiling in this draft class. Three quarterbacks will go in the top 10 You read that right, I believe three passers will come…

Interview with Arkansas Defensive Lineman Deatrich Wise Jr.

Prospect: DE – Deatrich Wise Jr., Arkansas We’d like to thank Deatrich for taking the time to answer some questions with us. MATT: To start off with, you’ve noted in the past that you’ve got the versatility and talent to play in different positions along the line of a defense. That being said, is there a certain defensive scheme at the next level that you’d be the most comfortable playing? DEATRICH: It doesn’t matter what defensive Scheme I play in. I believe I can thrive in any scheme, whether I’m…

random questions submitted by email, forum and twitter Q1:: Are there any wide receivers that are set to break out this year? (Cole in Atlanta GA) Taking a quick look around the league I see few players at wide receiver that are set to blow up. The draft could change all of that as new players will come into the position and potentially 3 quarterbacks could end up with starting gigs, changing the outlook of several receivers. Right now I’d keep an eye on Breshad Perriman, Corey Coleman and Quincy…

2017 NFL Mock Draft 6.0

NFL Mock Draft – 4/10/2017 Round 1 1. Cleveland Browns DE – Myles Garrett: Texas A&M This pick is all but locked up. The Browns would need a king’s ransom and probably more to move out of the #1 overall pick. 2. San Francisco 49ers QB – Mitchell Trubisky: N. Carolina This is a selection that is picking up a little steam as we near the draft. The Kirk Cousins situation in Washington is unresolved but the animosity  between the two parties seems to have lessened to a degree. If…

The Friday Sports Report – NFL Rumor Mill

The Philadelphia Eagles will look at options to move up in the first to acquire wide receiver John Ross You read that right, the Philadelphia Eagles are willing to part with picks in this draft and possibly 2018 to move up for Washington’s John Ross. The term used when describing the Eagles’ grade on Ross was ‘other worldly’. Yeah, I’m really not in agreement with this idea and if it proves to be true on the 27th I’m hoping for the fans in Philly that my assessment of Ross is…

random questions submitted by email, forum and twitter Q1:: Will Ezekiel Elliott have a second year as good as the first? (Mason in Mima FL) All the elements are there for Elliott to have some repeat success, but does history agree? When breaking down running backs with over 300 carries having repeat success, there is some inherent concern but the offensive line in Dallas is just so damn good that it’s hard to imagine a huge falloff. Dak will improve and the workload may lighten enough to see a bit…

The Friday Sports Report – 2017 NFL Draft Prospects

First Edition Quarterback As the most important position on the field starts to see its front runners emerge for the 2017 NFL Draft, it seems only fitting to point out that potential first round pick Patrick Mahomes was a player that was considered a long shot for day one at the beginning of the 2016 collegiate season. I first started suggesting Patrick as an early draft selection back near the start of October. All of the physical traits are there along with a strong competitive drive and a willingness to…

2017 NFL Mock Draft 5.0

NFL Mock Draft – 3/30/2017 Round 1 1. Cleveland Browns DE – Myles Garrett: Texas A&M Cleveland has shown little to no indication that they are willing to move out of the first spot in the draft and have not backed away from their opinion of Myles Garrett being head and shoulders above any other prospect in this class. I’m inclined to take their apparent view point at face value and lock Garrett in as the #1 overall selection in the 2017 draft. 2. San Francisco 49ers DE – Solomon…

Interview with Buffalo Bills Long Snapper Reid Ferguson

MATT: Alright, Reid! We appreciate you doing this with us. It’s not very often you see an interview with a NFL team’s Long Snapper, so I’m sure plenty of people will find this interesting. Let’s go ahead and dive right into the first question. I read the story of how you and your former coach Rex Ryan got to know each other through ‘anonymity’. In it, you state that being anonymous as a long snapper is a good thing. Can you expand on that a little bit? REID: Yes, as…
