The most important position in the NFL that comes with enormous scrutiny and the even more prestige is the quarterback.  Finding a NFL starter can be difficult, one of this year’s wild cards dprescott(meaning someone who could be drafted after the first two rounds) is former Mississippi State signal caller Dak Prescott.  I watched his 2015 games against NC State, LSU, Texas A&M, Louisiana Tech, a 2014 game against Arkansas, and his Senior Bowl game and practices to get a good feel of what skills and attributes he brings to the next level.  This is what I found:

In the 2016 NFL Draft class, there are superior athletes and then there are bullies.  Former Mississippi State wide out De’Runnya Wilson out-bullies almost every defensive back he meets.  Sure, hedwilson gets help by playing with a top five quarterback talent in Dak Prescott, but right now lets focus on the big man.  I reviewed a few of his games against NC State, LSU, Louisiana Tech, Ole Miss (2014 and 2015), and Auburn (2014) to get a better idea of what skills and talents this young man will bring to the next level.  This is what I saw:

The NFL Combine gives dynasty fantasy football fans their first glimpse on whether a player can translate college production into relevant fantasy points.  There weren’t any major spoilers combinerevealed, but some players impressed (stock up) while many stayed the same or failed to make a good impression (stock down).  Please remember the NFL Combine has already committed to tweaking their events to better translate to the game of football, instead of being about the highly measured 40 yard runs and 225 lb. bench presses.  Here are my initial thoughts:  Read More »

It’s that time of year when I turn my focus to the college bowl games to gain insight. I will do my best to find some draft eligible players that could improve your dynasty teams. This article intends to sammiecstart conversations and encourage continued thought throughout the entire draft process. These are my observations based on the bowl games, unless otherwise indicated. There will be much more in-depth, thought-provoking discussions later in the offseason. I am listing these players alphabetically.

WR-Sammie Coates, Auburn- The receiver played sparingly in this game due to some injury concerns. Perhaps it was the injuries, but he appeared disinterested in blocking downfield on running plays.  The wide out also seemed to tip-off if the team would pass or run by the way he came out of his stance at the line of scrimmage. Coates tracks the ball well in the air, gets separation quickly, and attacks the ball at its highest point instead of waiting for its down decent.  He catches the pigskin with his fingertips and runs silky, crisp routes.  There is some physicality to his game, even when hurting as he fought for extra yardage, used stiff-arms to keep defenders away from him, and shielded the ball from their prying hands. Coates showed a lot of grit playing hurt and impressed with limited opportunities. Read More »
