2019 QB Prospects

1. Justin Herbert; 6-5, 230, 4.75; Oregon; JR … Third-year junior has emerged as one of the best young QBs in the country with the potential to be a  top 5 pick this coming April; rangy player with elite arm strength and an easy throwing motion; can make all the throws including the deep outs; stands tall in… Read More »

Only 364 days to go

Only 364 days to go … until the 2019 draft. Hang in there guys! To help wile away the time, here is our first, very, very very preliminary first-round projection for next year’s draft. And, as in past years, anyone writing in complaining that ‘the Buckeroos will never take a …” will be automatically suspended from the site… Read More »

That’s a wrap

That’s a wrap … The 2018 draft came to a close just before 7 PM ET when Washington made SMU WR Trey Quinn this year’s ‘Mr Irrelevant’ when they selected him with the 256th and final pick.  Again, however, there won’t be any rest for NFL personnel people who are already working the phones trying to sign the… Read More »

How about some defensive help like Sam Hubbard for the COLTS. Versatile player who makes things happen when on the field. Reminds me of former Buckeye MIKE VRABEL. MIGHT END UP AS THEIR 3RD TE when not playing D. Pigskin If not I like D>J> CHARK to entice LUCK to get well soon.

Day Two

Just a huge upgrade for one of the worst OL in the NFL. Way to go Gettleman. Pigskin

Day Two

PLayed OT primarily at Nevada, but is likely to end up inside at OG. Excelled at SR Bowl. Very solid Pick. GIANTS could have used him. How about Hernandez Mr. Gettleman!

Day Two

Let’s assume john Dorsey is waiting for a phone call from someone looking to move up. But I doubt it. They still need more top talent for the roster and NOW! Go get road grader Will Hernandez/OG Dorse. Pigskin

First-round review

It seems that just about every draft year, the watchwords heading into the draft are ‘expect the unexpected’ but then year and year out it seems that the picks actually come off the year in pretty much cookie cutter fashion. Not so much in last night’s opening round of the 2018 draft which was chock full of surprises… Read More »

No mock today

It’s draft week!! … Depending on who is counting, just three days to go until the picks actually start coming off the board at the 2018 draft. And while there may be a lot of stuff going on just under the radar there really isn’t much buzz out there. Which is kind of surprising, because it is generally… Read More »

Steelers draft preview

Steelers draft preview … Pittsburgh fan Mark Gregg has put together a pretty comprehensive preview of the Steelers draft options for later in this week which he has passed along. It looks like a potentially useful document for Steelers’ fans and its free.

Morning buzz

One week to go!!! … Just a week to go until the 2018 draft. Hang in there guys. And the actual draft can’t come soon enough as what looked like was going to be something of a cookie cutter opening round appears to be getting muddier by the day. There is a growing chorus around the league, for… Read More »

To BPA or not to BPA

To BPA or not to BPA … One of the intriguing elements of the 2018 draft is that while QBs are expected to go 1-2-3 – if not 1-2-3-4 – when the actual picking gets underway on the 26th, many analysts consider non-QB prospects like Penn State RB Saquon Barkley, NC State DE Bradley and Notre Dame OF… Read More »

Is USC QB Sam Darnold slipping

Is USC QB Darnold slipping? … We won’t know for sure whether it simply represents a bunch of guys getting up on the wrong side of the bed, but there are a number of media analyses out there this day which are not kind to the draft fortunes of Southern Cal QB Sam Darnold. Darnold has long been… Read More »

Draft buzz

There are just ten days to go until the 2018 draft gets underway and for the most part it remains very quiet out there, although some speculative rumors about a possible three-way deal between the Browns, Bills and Giants re-surfaced in the past 24 hours. What appears to have set off the latest round of rumors regarding that… Read More »

No Barkley, Chubb visits with Browns

No Barkley, Chubb visits with Browns … Interesting story out of Cleveland where the Browns, who have the 1st and 4th picks in this month’s draft, reportedly will not have either Penn State RB Saquon Barkley nor NC State DE Bradley Chubb in among their 30 allotted pre-draft visits. Its odd because the two are widely considered to… Read More »

What’s out there this morning

Two weeks to go until the draft; hang in there guys … Not a whole of breaking of breaking news about the draft this morning with now just two weeks to go until the picks start coming off the board, which is probably a good thing because we have really entered the silly season part of the draft… Read More »

What they are saying out there …

There is a growing drumbeat around the league that Cleveland is seriously considering taking Wyoming QB Josh Allen with the #1 pick overall at this month’s draft instead of USC’s Sam Darnold, who has been the consensus favorite to be the pick pretty much since the draft process started. Is it smoke or is it real? Mark Kay… Read More »

No buzz today: Tuesday, April 10

The start of the 2018 draft is literally two weeks and normally at this time of the year the NFL community is awash in rumors about potential trades and who’s hot and who’s not on draft boards around the league. For whatever reason, though, it’s dead this year. At the same time, though, it is believed that both… Read More »

Projection upodated

With Rams-Pats trade GBN projection updated … In the aftermath of last week’s trade in which the LA Rams acquired veteran WR Brandin Cooks from New England for the 23rd pick in the opening round of the 2018 draft, the GBN’s three-round projection has been updated.

As the QB turns

If its Wednesday it must be Cleveland … Nobody will excuse the top QB prospects in this year’s draft if they have to check the newspaper when they wake up in the morning to see what city they are in the these days as they are all building up their travel miles big time. Today, for example, USC… Read More »

What others are saying:
