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 running back Alvin Kamara Tennessee Volunteers.

RB-Alvin Kamara, Tennessee 5’10” 215 lbs.

Kamara was a two-year contributor for the Volunteers. He was originally recruited by Alabama for the 2013 season, and due to a very competitive running back stable transferred to a junior college to play in 2014. This runner, unlike many of his draft classmates, has not taken a beating with less than 300 combined touches in his two years at Tennessee. 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 red shirt junior runner: 2016 contests versus Vanderbilt, Nebraska, Virginia Tech, and Georgia along with his 2015 game against my alma mater, Bowling Green. All of these videos are available via These are my thoughts: Read More »


It’s time to do work on your upcoming fantasy football rookie drafts!  One of those potential diamonds in the rough is San José State’s running back Tyler Ervin. He did not catch my eye during thetervin regular season, but after participating in the Senior Bowl practices and game, there is a lot of potential in this smaller back.  When I watched his games against New Mexico, Oregon State, Auburn, and Senior Bowl (practices too), the back reminded me quite a bit of Patriots Dion Lewis.  Here are my thoughts with what he can bring to the NFL:

Once again, before the impending CBA court decision and NFL Draft, I thought it was time to put my thoughts on the incoming rookie class. You will notice some of the player ranking have changed. Lots of new information and misinformation which is the norm during these last several weeks before the draft. These are my thoughts and feelings on how I rank rookies in PPR dynasty rookie drafts. My rankings were influenced by: Greg Cosell, Matt Waldman, Joe Everett, Jim Day, and Shane P. Hallam. In addition I have spent many hours of research watching everything I could on these players. Please use this to help your team maneuver around your rookie and dynasty drafts.

Here are your Top 30 skill position players. Enjoy!

Day 2 of the NFL Combine is in the books and all offensive players have been weighed, measured, and competed at least to some degree.  First of all, Cam Newton TV was in all its glory; this got in the way of some good running back drills, but I digress.  I wrote an article, Truth or Mirage: Offensive Players to Watch Closely at the Combine, before the combine about some players I wanted to watch closely.  Let’s reflect on what we discovered: Read More »

Some dynasty players may think this is the quietest time of the year.  Do not let that be you!  Use this time to get a leg up on your competition by starting your own rookie scouting.  First I am no “expert” but I am getting my first impressions on players.  Small differences may make the difference between drafting LeSean McCoy and Chris “Beanie” Wells.
