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 defender DeMarcus Walker, Florida State Seminoles

DE/OLB-DeMarcus Walker, Florida State 6’4” 280 lbs.

The senior defender has experienced a very fruitful college career with 107 solo tackles, 72 assists, 41.5 tackles for loss, 27 sacks, one interception, eight pass deflections, two fumble recoveries, and seven forced fumbles. His size and build make him a very interesting defender in your rookie drafts. 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 senior playmaker: 2016 contests versus Michigan, Ole Miss, Florida, Clemson, and Louisville.

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 Isaiah “Zay” Jones, the former East Carolina Pirate. The ECU Pirates are not an ordinary college team as they threw the ball an amazing 554 times in 2016 and today’s subject Zay Jones caught 158 of those passes for 1746 yards! I’m a high school football coach and educator by trade, so I am going to break down what I saw in the six games I reviewed of the talented senior wideout. The games reviewed were four 2016 contests against Virginia Tech, Navy, NC State, and South Carolina as well as two 2015 games versus Temple and Florida. Here are my thoughts:

WR-Zay Jones, East Carolina 6’ 1” 197 lbs.

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 converted linebacker Haason Reddick Temple Owls.

ILB-Haason Reddick, Temple 6’1” 237 lbs.

This defender might have been more of an afterthought if not for the opportunity to participate in the Senior Bowl event in Mobile, Alabama. During Senior Bowl practice he got coached up and seemed to have found his more natural position as an inside linebacker. After beginning his college career at Temple as a defensive back he then converted to an outside rushing linebacker/defensive to end his college career. As 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 senior defender: 2016 contests versus Wake Forest, Memphis, and Cincinnati, the 2017 Senior Bowl, along with a 2015 games against Notre Dame.

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 junior wideout Josh Malone, Tennessee Volunteers.

WR-Josh Malone, Tennessee 6’3” 208 lbs.

During the 2016 season Malone bonded with senior quarterback Josh Dobbs, this helped the junior receiver to surpass all his earlier collegiate production with a season that saw him grab 50 passes for 972 yards and eleven touchdowns. Unsure of the next signal caller and how the coaching staff would use him, Malone decided to take the plunge into the NFL. 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 playmaker: 2016 contests versus Alabama, Kentucky, Nebraska, and South Carolina.

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 redshirt sophomore tight end David Njoku, Miami Hurricanes..

TE-David Njoku, Miami (FL) 6’4” 245 lbs.

The young Hurricane tight end certainly makes a great impression the first time you watch him in action. He looks like could be a member of the Avengers with his athletic ability and muscular build It wasn’t surprising to find out in his senior high school year he was the national high jump champion for New Jersey. Njoku was initially recruited by Miami to play receiver, then moved to linebacker, and finally tight end. 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 this exceptional playmaker: 2016 contests versus Virginia, Pittsburgh, Duke, and West Virginia.

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 junior safety Jamal Adams, LSU Tigers.

S-Jamal Adams, LSU 6’1” 212 lbs.

Adams is considered a top ten talent in this year’s draft and should hear his name early on April 27th. He is the son of former New York Giants running back, George Allen, who won a league championship back in 1986. Can the young defender beef up a team to grab his own championship or perhaps secure one for a fantasy team that selects him early? 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 playmaker: 2016 contests versus Louisville, Auburn, Alabama, and Texas A&M along with a 2015 game against Texas Tech.

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 linebacker Kendell Beckwith, LSU Tigers.

LB-Kendell Beckwith, LSU 6’2” 252 lbs.

The senior defender was having a good season averaging just over nine tackles a game until he tore his ACL against Florida on November 19, 2016. This past spring, he suffered a sprained LCL during practice, so he will have some things to overcome with his preparation to begin his journey at the next level. Since 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 defender: 2016 contests versus Wisconsin, and Mississippi State along with 2015 games against Florida, Alabama, Auburn, and Mississippi State.

Maybe it’s just me, but with the proliferation of Draft Twitter and the multitudes of fantasy football sites, I believe it is important to know someone’s background before reading their work aka “don’t follow false prophets”. Speaking of myself and only myself, I have watched football for over 43 years of my 47 years on this earth. That alone, however, does not make me a good judge of football talent. I played football for four years between junior high and high school where I was a starting guard, sometimes center and began defense as a defensive end, but eventually played both inside and outside backer spots. Once again, that does not qualify me to be an expert at football, just some experience playing the game. Read More »

I am proud to endorse one of my best buds and distant relative, Ryan aka @TheFFGhost’s Orange Report.  It goes into great detail on offensive fantasy related skill players as well as all the IDP goodness that any aspiring dynasty owner would ever need.  It is an affordable $5, but worth at least five times that amount.  If you want all the 2016 rookies in one place in an easy to read and understand format, the Orange Report is for you!

With the 2016 NFL Draft right around the corner, dynasty fantasy IDP owners need to separate the wheat from the chaff.  A big topic of discussion is former Eastern Kentucky/Ohio State nspencedefender, Noah Spence.  He has a lot of athleticism, but has a serious substance abuse problem.  I reviewed his 2015 Eastern Kentucky games against Valparaiso, Kentucky, and NC State, along with his 2013 Ohio State games versus Penn State, Wisconsin, Michigan State, and California to get a better feel what skills and attributes this young man brings to the next level.  These are my thoughts:

The 2016 NFL Draft is quickly approaching.  During this time, the potential draftees are under a lot of pressure and scrutiny.  One of the first to crack was former Western Kentucky tight end Tylerthigbee Higbee, who got arrested on April 10th and charged with second degree assault, second degree evading police, and alcohol intoxication.  His agent has let it be known that Higbee defended his girlfriend from another male bar patron.  That may or may not reason away  a physical altercation, but disregarding the police’s authority and driving while intoxicated are not so easy to dismiss. However, I will focus the majority of this scouting report on his college film as I reviewed his 2015 games against Indiana, Miami (OH), and Marshall to get a better idea of what skills and attributes he brings to the next level.  Here are my thoughts:
