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 Jake Butt, Michigan Wolverines.

TE-Jake Butt, Michigan 6’6” 248 lbs.

Please forgive my homerism as I have watched Jake Butt in Ann Arbor for the past four years and have seen his level of play improve, especially since Coach Harbaugh came to town. 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 Michigan State, Iowa, Colorado, Wisconsin, Penn State, Ohio State, and Florida State. Most of these game videos are available via draftbreakdown.com. These are my thoughts: Read More »

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 running back Brian Hill, Wyoming Cowboys.

RB-Brian Hill, Wyoming 6’1” 219 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 junior running back Christian McCaffrey, Stanford Cardinals.

RB-Christian McCaffrey, Stanford 5’11 ‘ 202 lbs.

The most talented son of former Bronco receiver, Ed McCaffrey, only made one controversial move: he skipped his last bowl game. Christian is an exciting player that is hard not to like, but there is some concern that with his diminutive size he might not be able to carry the load as a full-time NFL running back. I’m a high school football coach and educator by trade, so I am going to break down what I saw in the seven games I reviewed of the junior runner: 2016 contests versus USC, California, Rice, Washington, UCLA, Arizona, and Oregon.
