Levis throwing session now done

Proday updates

Pro day updates … Funny, that after what seemed like a rather momentous day on the pro day circuit, there’s actually very little news to report. Needless to say the reviews of Ohio State QB CK Stroud’s 55-pass scripted throwing session were pretty much universally applauded. Of course, it would be news if they weren’t! Meanwhile, along with… Read More »

Pro day updates

Pro day updates … No surprise here as there was a big crowd at today’s Iowa State pro day workout with all 32 teams represented. And again no surprise that Pittsburgh lead the way with both G.M.

As most of you already know, every year there are almost a full round (32) of players who get drafted but were not invited to the Combine.

Post first-wave free agency mock posted

Post first-wave free agency mock posted … With the frantic first wave of free agency now pretty much in the books, we figured now was as good as any time to update our last first-round mock done post-combine.

End of week pro day updates

End of week pro day updates … Still not a whole lot of info coming out of the various pro days around the country. We did get a second report, for example, that Georgia Tech DE Keion White was timed in the 4.65-4.75 range on his one 40 run yesterday, but again that doesn’t tell us very much.… Read More »

Big pro day at UGA

Big pro day at UGA … Just about every NFL team circled March 15th on their pro day calendars as defending national champion Georgia will do its on-field thing later today.

Now that I have recovered from the “shock and awe” of the CARR/SAINTS marriage announcement, as well as the BEARS taking advantage of the Panthers impatient Owner Mr. Tepper and moving off Pick One in the 2023 Draft, I am getting back to the guys who used the Combine to raise their Draft stock in my mind, and… Read More »

QBs go 1-2-3 and 4 in post-combine projection … Clearly with the #1 pick overall changing hands in a major trade, it is time to update our projection and in this one its just not hard to see QBs going with the first four picks.

I had it in my head not to make too big of a deal about the QB at this Combine and in the upcoming Draft. But I had to face up to the reality that QB are the true stars of the NFL. They used to say ‘Defense wins championships’. But to say that today is less than… Read More »

Seahawks re-sign QB Smith; still looking at the position at the draft?

Seahawks re-sign QB Smith; still looking at the position at the draft? … The fact that Seattle resigned veteran QB Geno Smith to a reported 3Y, $105M contract extension would seem, at least on first blush, preclude the Seahawks from selecting a QB with the 5th pick at the 2023 draft. However, my understanding is that the contract… Read More »

COMBINE 2023 Day 4

We have seen a slight moderation in parameters and nomenclature as it applies to labeling and grading of the OL Group, which started off our day as the Combine progressed to Day 4.  51 players were packed into this group of the “big uglies”. In reality guys in this grouping are either OT or IOL, meaning the OG/OC… Read More »

That’s a wrap; on to pro days

That’s a wrap; on to pro days … The 2023 scouting combine wrapped up within the last hour in Indianapolis.

All OL times

OL 40 times … For the record, here are the 40 times now for both groups of offensive linemen. A couple of highlights from the second group to note.
