East-West Shrine Practice: Monday (East & West Squads)

by Chris Kouffman (@ckparrot)   Home, sweet home.  This year, the East-West Shrine Game and week of practices are being held in St. Petersburg, FL.  This is pretty close to where I live in Tampa, and so I am loving the “commute” to and from practices.  Sad to say, no practices in a hotel ball room this time around.  As fun as it... [Read more of this review]


A Look Back: QB T.J. Yates of North Carolina

by Chris Kouffman   Quarterback T.J. Yates of the Houston Texans just won his third game as a Houston Texan, second as a starter, clinching the AFC South division title and a playoff berth.  Yates was a largely unheralded 5th round Draft selection out of North Carolina, a school which I’m to understand has never produced a quarterback that... [Read more of this review]


Richard Lines’ Mock Draft v.2.0 – Final

1). Cam Newton – QB – Auburn This is a tough pick, as personally, I don’t know if any of the quarterbacks in this year’s draft are worthy of the number one overall selection. But, the fact remains that Jimmy Clausen did not play well last year and the passing game was down right putrid. With that in mind, there are a... [Read more of this review]


Simon Clancy’ Mock Draft v.1.0

1). Cam Newton – QB – Auburn It seems as though this is now written in the stars. I often wondered whether a conservative owner such as Jerry Richardson sign off on Newton but the Panthers need a shot in the arm and it seems only GM Marty Hurney is truly still considering that Jimmy Clausen deserves a shot. Newton’s sole season with the Tigers... [Read more of this review]


Final Top 100 List

This list is made up of what I consider to be the Top 100 football players available in the 2011 NFL Draft. This list likely will not suit everyone; as some players who many believe are quality players do not make the cut. Others will be ranked higher than you may normally see. I made this list based on what I’ve seen on film, not combine... [Read more of this review]


Draft Winds: Here’s our picks for the Dolphins’ draft

But most importantly, we’ve ruminated about what we think the Miami Dolphins will do in the opening four rounds and this is what we decided. Much like last week our aim is to put our ‘reputations’ on the table by trying to predict who we think Miami will pick and why in which rounds. Last week we went acorn hunting in rounds 5 through 7, this... [Read more of this review]


Draft Winds: Breaking down Dolphins in rounds 5-7

Thanks again for reading last week and for your comments. This week we’re entering the final furlong as this is the penultimate Draft Winds of 2011 and it’s where we put any reputations we have on the table by trying to predict who we think Miami will pick and why in which rounds. Next week we’ll look at rounds 4 to 1 but this week it’s acorn... [Read more of this review]

Draft Winds: Lies, damn lies and Ryan Mallett

Ryan Mallett is a very interesting Sir Charles Wentworth Dilke coined the phrase ‘Lies, damned lies and statistics’ back in 1891. It’s unknown who coined ‘Lies, damned lies and character issues’ but come draft time it could be any number of ‘sources’, especially in the ever changing environment of social media. Mallett has suffered more... [Read more of this review]
