Mock Draft 10.0: Kyler to Cards, Giants Acquire a Third First-Round Pick

Doing a second mock draft is difficult, especially if you liked the vibe of your first. Feel free to toggle back and forth a bit, as I went a little deeper into explaining my thought process on some of the picks that remain the same. As we get closer to the draft, the quarterback question looms. […]

2019 NFL Draft: Why I get Davante Adams Vibes from Deebo Samuel and other wide receiver comparisons

This is the best wideout draft class since the epic 2014 group that featured new Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr., his teammate Jarvis Landry, Mike Evans, Davante Adams, Brandin Cooks, Sammy Watkins and a handful of other valuable pass catchers. And there are a few players from that group that serve as comparisons for the class […]

Scouting the quarterbacks: What kind of NFL prospect is Daniel Jones?

Hailing from North Carolina, Jones attended Charlotte Latin School in Charlotte, where he threw for nearly 7,000 yards and 98 touchdowns during his time in high school. However, an injury Jones suffered during the basketball season his junior year severely hampered his football recruiting process.

How a Hitless Chris Davis is Like a $15 Dessert

On Sept. 14, 2018, Chris Davis, who had been hitless in his last 17 at-bats, got a 2-1 changeup from White Sox pitcher James Shields, and jumped on it. Davis lined the ball through the shift into right field, hustling his way to second for a double. Since that day, Davis, a 33-year-old slugger for the […]

By Mark Simon, Sports Info Solutions It was cool that Lorenzo Cain’s catch of a would-be game-tying home run was the most prominent play of Opening Day. It was a reminder that in this era in which the focus seems to be on strikeouts and home runs, defense still matters … a lot. Click here […]

Making the Case for and Against Jordan Howard’s Career Resurgence

Jordan Howard is okay. I know that’s not exactly a ringing endorsement. You might be upset that he’s just “okay”. That’s okay too. There’s a case for concern and there’s a case for success. Neither side making those cases would be wrong and the debate would rage on for months. Only September would save us from […]

Duke Coach David Cutliffe: Daniel Jones Will ‘Absolutely’ Be a First-Round Pick

David Cutcliffe has been through enough of these to know the drill by know. Heath Shuler in 1994, Peyton Manning in 1998, Eli Manning in 2004; there’s an ingredient list synonymous with a quarterback who teams are most likely going to risk a first-round pick on. A day after Daniel Jones’s pro day in Durham, […]

Mock Draft 7.0: With Free Agency Done, QBs Fall, Broncos Trade Back Into Round 1, Patriots Take a Chance

Welcome to my first mock draft of the season, and sorry in advance. This year in particular felt arduous in terms of balancing team needs and trying to match players with certain characteristics coaches like, to the extent we think coaches like them. (An insane amount of coaching turnover doesn’t help matters, either.) This is […]

What are the Giants getting in safety duo of Antoine Bethea and Jabrill Peppers?

When the New York Giants chose to not place the franchise tag on Landon Collins, safety became one of the biggest needs on the roster. With Collins gone and Curtis Riley also a free agent after his one-year deal expired, the Giants were down both starting safeties from 2018. It was a position the Giants looked to fill quickly. Their first free […]
