There are hundreds of stories being told during the planning and anticipation of the 2017 NFL Draft. Today we will be looking at a scouting report for red shirt sophomore Solomon Thomas, Stanford Cardinals.

DT/DE-Solomon Thomas, Stanford 6’3” 273 lbs.

This hybrid defender has climbed up many draft pundits mock drafts. He is a too tall and skinny to play inside on the defensive line for more than a few snaps a game, yet Thomas isn’t fluid enough to play outside backer. Let’s take a look at his talents to see where the former Cardinal will be the most effective. Since I’m a high school football coach and educator by trade, let’s break down what I saw in the seven games I reviewed of the red shirt sophomore play maker: 2016 contests versus Arizona, Kansas State, Colorado, UCLA, North Carolina, Rice, and Washington.

There are hundreds of stories being told during the planning and anticipation of the 2017 NFL Draft. Today we will be looking at a scouting report for senior wide out Taywan Taylor, Western Kentucky Hilltoppers.

WR-Taywan Taylor, Western Kentucky 5’11” 203 lbs.

The high-flying Hilltopper receiver really took off his junior year and did not slow down with back to back 1400+ receiving yards and 17 touchdowns seasons his last two years. In his senior year, the wide out was very consistent by either reaching pay dirt or having over 100 yards in every game. That was quite impressive and he continued that work in Mobile, Alabama this past week during the practices and game. Because I’m a high school football coach and educator by trade, let’s break down what I saw in the seven games I reviewed of the senior play maker: 2016 contests versus Memphis, Rice, Alabama, Vanderbilt, LA Tech, and Middle Tennessee along with the 2017 Senior Bowl.

There are hundreds of stories being told during the planning and anticipation of the 2017 NFL Draft. Today we will be looking at a scouting report for red-shirt senior running back Jamaal Williams, Brigham Young Cougars .

RB-Jamaal Williams BYU 6’ 212 lbs.

This young man has competed nationally in track and field events since the age of ten when he first broke his ankle. Williams also has great genetics as his mother Nicolle Thompson was a former NCAA Track & Field championship level sprinter while at UCLA. He began his college career early at age 17, so the impact of him taking the 2015 season off due to “personal reasons” and knee issues may not be as disastrous as originally thought.

Because I’m a high school football coach and educator by trade, let’s break down what I saw in the eight games I reviewed of the senior runner: 2016 contests versus Wyoming, Arizona, Utah, Cincinnati, Mississippi State, Michigan State, and Toledo along with the 2017 Senior Bowl.

There are hundreds of stories being told during the planning and anticipation of the 2017 NFL Draft. Today we will be looking at a scouting report for red-shirt senior wide out Cooper Kupp, Eastern Washington Eagles.

WR-Cooper Kupp, Eastern Washington 6’2” 204 lbs.

Kupp is a unique prospect for a few reasons. His grandfather played guard in the NFL for eleven years and his father was drafted by the league too. Then there is the level of competition he faced in the Big Sky Conference which is not considered difficult, but the wide out did perform well against bigger programs, Washington and Oregon. The rookie receiver will also be one of his classes oldest players, 24 before the start of the season, and married for two years.

Because I’m a high school football coach and educator by trade, I decided to break down what I saw in the six games I reviewed of the senior play maker: 2016 contests versus Washington State, Richmond, Central Arkansas, and Northern Arizona along with a 2015 game against Oregon and a 2014 game against Sam Houston State.

There are hundreds of stories being told during the planning and anticipation of the 2017 NFL Draft. Today we will be looking at a scouting report for senior edge rusher Dawuane Smoot, Illinois Fighting Illini.

DE-Dawuane Smoot, Illinois 6’3” 265 lbs.

At the start of the 2016 season, many scouts had been quite impressed with his production in 2015: fifteen tackles for loss, eight sacks and three forced fumbles. Smoot was given a second round grade by the draft advisory board his junior year, but decided to come back for his senior season to bump himself into the first round consideration. While his tackle numbers went up (56), the rest of his production decreased (five sacks and two forced fumbles). Because I’m a high school football coach and educator by trade, let’s break down what I saw in the four games I reviewed of the senior defender: 2016 contests versus Nebraska and Michigan along with two 2015 games against Wisconsin and Iowa.

There are hundreds of stories being told during the planning and anticipation of the 2017 NFL Draft. Today we will be looking at a scouting report for red-shirt junior receiver Chad Hansen, Cal Golden Bears.

WR-Chad Hansen, California 6’2” 202 lbs.

This year’s receiver class has been described as wide, meaning that many different types of receivers with many unique skill sets. I don’t see Hansen as a number one option in an NFL passing game, but the Idaho transfer turned Golden Bear could find some success in a complementary role. Because I’m a high school football coach and educator by trade, let’s break down what I saw in the four games I reviewed of the junior play maker: 2016 contests versus Texas, Arizona State, San Diego State, and Stanford.

Today, we will be looking at a scouting report for Damore’ea Stringfellow, the former Ole Miss Rebels. He hasn’t caught that many passes in college (102), but the receiver has averaged at least 13 yards a catch in every season. I’m a high school football coach and educator by trade, so I am going to break down what I saw in the five games I reviewed of the redshirt junior wideout. The games reviewed were four 2016 contests against Florida State, Auburn, Memphis, and Mississippi State as well a 2013 games versus BYU when he played for the Washington Huskies. Here are my thoughts:

Each year are hundreds of stories being told during the planning and anticipation of the NFL Draft; the 2017 NFL Draft is no different. Today we will be looking at a scouting report for redshirt junior defensive end/outside linebacker Charles Harris, Missouri Tigers.

DE/OLB-Charles Harris, Missouri 6’3” 253 lbs.

He was a lone bright side on the defensive side of the ball on a 4-8 Missouri football team; his impact was felt in spurts with nine sacks in 2016 (7.5 sacks were accrued in three games). What position does he transition to best at the next level? Because I’m a high school football coach and educator by trade, let’s break down what I saw in the five games I reviewed of the red-shirt junior defender: 2016 contests versus West Virginia, LSU, and Vanderbilt along with 2015 games against Florida and Arkansas.

Each year are hundreds of stories being told during the planning and anticipation of the NFL Draft; the 2017 NFL Draft is no different. Today we will be looking at a scouting report for senior tight end Jordan Leggett, Clemson Tigers.

TE-Jordan Leggett Clemson, 6’5” 255 lbs.

The Clemson senior tight end improved on his receptions every year of school and managed to help his team win a national championship all while trying to transition from a big receiver in high school to becoming a complete tight end at the next level. Does he have the ability to excel in the NFL? As I’m a high school football coach and educator by trade, let’s break down what I saw in the six games I reviewed of the senior play maker: 2016 contests versus Alabama, Ohio State, and Virginia Tech along with 2015 games against South Carolina, North Carolina, and Florida State..

Each year are hundreds of stories being told during the planning and anticipation of the NFL Draft; the 2017 NFL Draft is no different. Today we will be looking at a scouting report for junior wide out  Malachi Dupre, LSU Tigers.

WR-Malachi Dupre, LSU 6’2” 196 lbs.

This former high school state champion in the long, triple, and high jumps had an abysmal junior campaign with fewer yards and touchdowns than he did the previous year. So why should he get scouted? Once again, statistics do not tell the entire story. The Tigers prefer to run the ball behind soon to be first round pick Leonard Fournette and sophomore, junior to be Derrius Guice. Dupre accounted for 26% of his team’s passing yardage with only 593 yards receiving. Because I’m a high school football coach and educator by trade, let’s break down what I saw in the five games I reviewed of the junior play maker: 2016 contests versus Louisville, and Wisconsin along with 2015 games against Florida, Alabama, and South Carolina.

RB-Jeremy McNichols, Boise State  5’9” 214 lbs.

This junior back had a very successful college career scoring 44 touchdowns, rushing for over 3200 yards along with over a hundred catches for close to 1100 receiving yards. The Broncos have produced two successful NFL backs in the last five years with Doug Martin and Jay Ajayi, can McNichols make it three? Because I’m a high school football coach and educator by trade, let’s break down what I saw in the six games I reviewed of the junior play maker: 2016 contests versus Baylor, UNLV, BYU, Wyoming, Utah State, and Washington State.
