      brandon shed WR

      you either have to be a good route runner or be good at boxing out and winning the 50 50 balls. that is what i like to see in my WR prospects

      this kid can run routes. excellent at the top of the route IMO worth taking a look at more closely

        another draft diamonds vid...pretty cool

        jeremiah briscoe WR looks like a great YAC kind of receiver in the vid

        Roc thomas RB also jumped out at me...he is my type of those moves...undersized speedy type of guy

          2. Speaking of Iowa, tailback Akrum Wadley is a good example of why some teams will never consider taking a Saquon Barkley or Leonard Fournette or Ezekiel Elliott in the upper reaches of the draft. The belief is that you can find one later. Thatís why itís important to note that while this yearís RB group is strong at the top, it also has depth. Wadley looks every bit of an NFL back, and can be had later in the process (not unlike Kareem Hunt last year).

          3. Weíve written a bunch about the Notre Dame linemen, and Saturdayís 48-37 win over a game Wake Forest bunch should give you ample evidence as to why. The Irish lost lead back Josh Adams early and still ran right through the Demon Deacons. When it was over, with OT Mike McGlinchey and G Quenton Nelson paving the way, seven different Notre Dame players had logged a total of 44 carries for 383 yards and four touchdowns.

            Josey jewel ILB

            tdawg mentioned this guy as a SAm LB

            i had not taken too much of a liking to be honest because i was concerned about his ability to cover....this mock's author seems to think he can cover RB and TEs though...

            not sure i'm convinced, but he could definitely be worth a closer look... he is a good football player with good football instincts. y only concern is the pass game...i think his size strength etc. will be fine...lets see how his 3 cone drill and 40 time go at the combine

            JOSEY JEWELL


            The lone defensive player in this three round mock draft. Denver is going to need some help at the inside linebacker position. This is a unit that has struggled to cover the running backs and especially the tight ends on passing plays.

            Countless times this season and last I saw the Broncos beat by the tight end or a running back catching a pass in the backfield. The team needs to address an inside linebacker that can stop the run and protect against the pass.

            Todd Davis is in the final year of his contract. I highly believe how he performs during the second half of the year could determine if he is retained. If Elway believes he can find someone other than Davis, then perhaps Josey Jewell could be a name to look out for in the draft.

            I have seen limited film from him, but his ability to find the ball carrier and take him down can really help against the run. And the way he performs against receivers that run across the middle of the field is great too. If he can help out on defense when it comes to passing plays, he could be a solid contributor to the team.

              converted safety, has potential to cover LBs and RBs

              I see this an UDFA or late round play. could become something with development.

              this dude is having himself a year, since he converted to LB. his stock is on the rise. PFF gives him a grade of 87.5 so far. may not be going as UDFA or late rounder after all.... he should get drafted as he has upside. will be interesting to see if teams ignore him as too small/light or lack of experience at the new position

                Bradley Bozeman C

                under the radar center prospect has had a good year apparently

                Alabama center Bradley Bozeman has been one of the better centers in the nation in 2017. Bozemanís overall grade of 84.9 ranks currently ranks No. 8 among FBS centers with at least 200 snaps. He has only allowed one sack and three hurries while not allowing a QB hit, on his 267 pass blocking snaps. Bozemanís run blocking grade of 82.2 ranks No. 5 among FBS centers with at least 200 snaps

                  under the radar article lists some names to watch for:

                  check the TE hayden hurst, the author is really high on...have not heard that name at all yet

                  got me thinking though that the Giants could find a receiver TE to convert to WR at the next level could be a god idea to get a big body guy dallas goedert probably goes too high in the draft but maybe an undersized speedy TE nobody else is looking at or something

                  just an idea

                  maybe the hayden hurst guy can be a WR? 6 5 235 former basket ball player worth a look perhaps

                      some really deeep sleepers in the article>>>>>

                        Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa ó Jackson might be the top cornerback in the draft and is the front-runner for the Jim Thorpe Award. The 6-1, 192-pound junior was the only reason the Hawkeyes scored in the blowout loss in Madison. Jackson had a pair of pick-sixes to account for both of Iowa's touchdowns and added a forced fumble. He now has a nation-leading seven interceptions, five of which have come in the last two weeks.

                          cole madison OT

                          pff's top rated RT

                            Jake Wieneke, WR, South Dakota State

                            small school WR

                              Deatrick Nichols, CB, South Florida

                              Team fit: Kansas City Chiefs

                              2017 stats: 28 tackles (2 for loss), 2 INTs, 7 pass breakups, 1 forced fumble.

                              The secondary could be the biggest question mark for Kansas City heading into 2018. Each year, a small but tough and athletic corner is selected in the second round -- Nichols fits that description.


                              LOVE THIS PICK for late rounder or UDFA if he falls he could go higher even, but slot corners and undersized cbs can usually be had later

                              this kid is an undersized stud
                              can cover has good hands/ball hawk
                              hits with everything hes got

                              good football instincts being in the right place

                              reminds me of a cross between j jenkins and donte deayon but with more fire.

                              perfect guy for slot corner

                              him and duke dawson are my 2 slot corner guys this year

                              this kid is tough and a big hitter for a small bodied guy
                              Giants fans will love the way this guy bangs
