Imagining a world without the NFL draft

In very few industries would employers have the ability to collude in order to force prospective employees to join whichever company chooses them. Unfortunately for NFL prospects, that is the system that has been collectively bargained on their behalf by the union that serves them. But as Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio points out, it […]

When it comes to quarterbacks, desperate teams wrestle over quantity vs. quality

I’m quite sure that all 32 NFL teams are aware that their chances of winning consistently and substantially are hindered significantly if they don’t have a so-called franchise quarterback on the roster. As a result, teams like New York Jets, Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans, Denver Broncos, Philadelphia Eagles and Los Angeles Rams have […]

Ranking every quarterback drafted

With quarterbacks now locked in with certain teams, it is important to factor in team fit into the equation when ranking these quarterbacks. Some passers landed in difficult situations, while others ended up in prosperous environments for their skill sets. The order will still be loosely based off of talent, but factoring in their new […]

The eight most surprising picks from Round 1 of the 2016 NFL draft

Round 1 is in the books. Here’s what surprised us the most… 3. Chargers take DE Joey Bosa: Most figured it was going to be one of the top two offensive tackles or defensive back Jalen Ramsey. Bosa could be a weird fit in a 3-4 defense. I have a feeling they were dead set […]

The 10 least surprising picks from Round 1 of the 2016 NFL draft

Round 1 is in the books. Here’s what surprised nobody… 1. Rams take QB Jared Goff: This was the worst-kept secret in sports for a week. 2. Eagles take QB Carson Wentz: This was the second-worst-kept secret in sports for a week. 4. Cowboys take RB Ezekiel Elliott: Let’s be real, although only one other […]

The Broncos found their quarterback solution…for 2017?

We hear the word “project” attached to quarterbacks often during the NFL draft. It’s usually used as a springboard for day dreaming. Potential is there, but only after the project is complete. Typically that word doesn’t surface until Day 3, the marathon Saturday when quarterbacks with both promise and flaws are scattered throughout four rounds. […]

Laremy Tunsil’s Twitter account tweets bong video before NFL Draft

Prized Ole Miss lineman Laremy Tunsil’s Twitter account tweeted a video of Tunsil smoking a gas mask bong leading into the draft on Thursday. Ole Miss players have had plenty of controversy surrounding marijuana-related activities headed into the 2016 NFL Draft and highly prized offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil has now taken perhaps the biggest hit […]

Five bold predictions for the 2016 NFL draft

I hate the phrase “bold predictions,” because it is so often used merely to get your attention and is a tired cliché. So I rarely use it, but in this case I feel like we’ve got some truly bold prognostications for the 2016 NFL draft. This, I’m breaking my rule. Here we go. 1. Sam Bradford […]

Eagles haven’t contacted Carson Wentz since trading up to #2

It seemed simple: The Los Angeles Rams, who traded with the Tennessee Titans to get the No. 1 overall pick, were going to take either Jared Goff or Carson Wentz with the newly acquired pick. Then, the Philadelphia Eagles would take whichever quarterback was available with the No. 2 pick. But Wentz spoke with reporters Wednesday, and […]

Kudos to JaMarcus Russell, but it’s too late for NFL redemption

Megabust quarterback JaMarcus Russell says he’s so desperate to return to the NFL that he’d play for free. That, of course, wouldn’t be permitted under the collective bargaining agreement. But the reality is that at this point, Russell probably couldn’t pay a team to bring him in. It’s hard to believe, but the No. 1 […]

2015 rookies with the most to prove in 2016

The 2016 NFL draft is nearly here. A lot of teams will be looking to replace lost or fading veterans, while many will already be looking to upgrade at positions which they’ve failed to upgrade on in recent years. The reality in a league like this is that a lot of teams are already giving […]

Potential trade destinations for Sam Bradford

The Philadelphia Eagles have two quasi-starting-caliber quarterbacks in Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel, but they’re undoubtedly about to add a third when they draft Jared Goff or Carson Wentz on Thursday night. That was Bradford demanding a trade, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. So what does the trade market look like for the high-paid, underwhelming quarterback? […]
