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.

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. Most of these game videos are available via draftbreakdown.com. Here are my thoughts: Read More »

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.

There are a few lesser known players that many people are not discussing. One of those is inside linebacker, Kwon Alexander, from LSU for all you IDP owners.  After watching his games against kwonMississippi State and the Florida Gators, there were a few things to like and some things that raised my concerns.  Here are my thoughts:

LB Kwon Alexander, LSU 6’1” 227 lbs.

Cons: The defender is a bit on the short side and the light side weight-wise to play inside backer in the NFL.  While this certainly won’t stop him, it might make it more difficult for him to find a starting job.  He strikes me as more of a finesse player who seemed to bounce off ball carriers instead of smashing them.  Alexander also has a bad habit of guessing incorrectly.  The backer runs around blockers instead of trying to run through them on the way to the pigskin.  When he does get tangled up with blockers, it takes him too much time to disengage them to make his way to the pigskin.  Perhaps it is his size, but Alexander does not see the field well, got sealed off a lot, and made most of his tackles by the ankles.  I’m not sure how much of a pass rusher he is either.
