Tajh Boyd, QB, Clemson - As the 2013 season came to an end Boyd looked as if he could be a second round target in the upcoming NFL Draft. Now he has been left in the dust among the recently emerging quarterback prospects. Strengths: He’s a winner, he broke a handful of ACC records, and won thirty two games while at Clemson. He also has the athleticism that the NFL now embraces. Boyd has the arm talent to succeed in the NFL. He displays both zip and touch on his passes. Weaknesses: He has a stocky build at 6’1” 222 pounds, and received the nickname “Fat Boy” from his teammates. Boyd lacks consistent accuracy, mechanics,...

Measurables Height: 6’3” Weight: 220 lbs. Hand Size: 10” Class: Senior School: Alabama 40 Time: 4.94 Bench: (None)  Reps Vertical Jump: 28” Long Jump: 99” Career Stats Passing Rushing Analysis Size: A, Size is a tough measurable to grade. It really has to do with preference. 6’3”, 220 pounds is pretty perfect size in the NFL, but A.J. McCarron doesn’t get the A+ from me because 6’4” or 6’5” is perfect in my eyes especially for a pocket passer. His weight is a perfect size for a NFL quarterback to be able to absorb hits. Pocket Awareness: C, Virtually no ability to escape when he...

Measurables Height: 6’0” Weight: 207 lbs. Hand Size: 9 7/8” Class: Sophomore School: Texas A&M 40 Time: 4.68 Bench: 12 reps Vertical Jump: 31.5” Long Jump: 113” Career Stats Passing Rushing Analysis and Grades Size: C  Manziel measured in at six foot flat at the Combine. NFL scouts and coaches have had problems in the past with quarterbacks under 6’1”, but thanks to the success of Russell Wilson and Drew Brees, Manziel will still see a first round paycheck. His ability to make plays with his feet will also be a major key to his high selection. Pocket Awareness: A He feels the pocket...

Now that free agency has weeded out the top tier players, the draft picture can start to develop. Prior to free agency the Dolphins had to take an offensive lineman with their first round pick, now they have some options. Before we get into that, everyone needs to realize there is a lot of time between now and the draft. Miami could still fill some holes with players that are still on the market. They may even look to bring in some players just for competition. This article will exclude players that aren’t realistic options for their position such as Greg Robinson, Jake Matthews, and so on. Here are some possible options for the Miami...

Measurables Height: 6’2” Weight: 214 lbs Hand Size: 9 1/8” Class: Senior School: Fresno State 40 Time: 4.69 Bench: N/A (Pro Day) Vertical Jump: 34.5” Long Jump: 110”   College Stats Passing Rushing   Analysis and Grades Size: A-, He falls into the average 6’2”/6’3” height for quarterbacks in the NFL. On film he looks like he carries a little more weight than the 214 pounds he weighed at the Combine. Like most rookie quarterbacks he could add a little bulk for protection, but his size is good. It has been noted recently that Carr has been battling a virus prior to his Pro Day so...

The 2014 season will be an extremely critical one for many in the Dolphins organization. Essentially it is playoff or bust for members of the Dolphins such as head coach Joe Philbin. Luckily for Philbin, his head was spared when the ax came down on former general manager Jeff Ireland and offensive coordinator Mike Sherman. That won’t be the case if the Dolphins miss out on the playoffs like they did last season. This will also be a critical year for quarterback Ryan Tannehill. He has been steadily progressing, but didn’t prosper as well as some thought last year. Repairing a horrid offensive line and connecting with Mike Wallace this off...

Measurables and Background School: University of Central Florida (UCF) Class: redshirt junior Hometown: Oviedo, Florida Height: 6’5” Weight: 232 lbs. Hand Size: 9 3/8” 40 Time: 4.93 Bench: N/A (Pro Day) Vertical Jump: 32.5” Long Jump: 115”   College Stats   Analysis and Grades Size: A -- Bortles has the prototypical height and weight desired in the NFL. He is tall enough to see over the line, and heavy enough to take hits in the pocket. His size makes him hard to bring down and won’t be brought down by arm tackles. His size also gives him a leg up on the other quarterbacks...

To start off the Draft Notebook series we will begin with my top ranked quarterback in the class. Teddy Bridgewater has been pretty faceless this offseason due to his lack of All-Star game appearance and his lack of participation at the Combine. Keep an eye out for Louisville's pro day March 17th. Bridgewater will need a great day to solidify himself as the top quarterback in this class. Measurables and Background School: Louisville Class: Junior Hometown: Miami, Florida Height: 6’2” Weight: 214 lbs Hand Size: 9 1/4” 40 Time: N/A (Pro Day) Bench: N/A (Pro Day) Vertical Jump: 30” Long Jump: 113” Career...

The Combine is over and prospects will begin to almost magically rise up mock drafts. Most teams and scouts don’t really care about Combine numbers like most people tend to think, but there is always a prospect or two that get taken much earlier than anticipated due to a top notch Combine performance. As I have stated before I don’t do trades in my mocks because they are even less predictable then the actual player selections. St. Louis’ second overall pick in my mind is 80 percent likely to be moved come draft day. If Houston takes a quarterback look for someone to trade into two for Clowney. If Houston takes Clowney a team may hop...

The final field day of the Combine is in the books. Now comes all of the fallout from Draft “experts” on who will be making less money come draft day because they ran a forty that was .10 off of what scouts expected. The Combine is just an event to put a number to the tape. At the end of the day a player is a player. Here is the schedule and more info: Saturday – Special Teams/OL/TE Sunday – QB/RB/WR Monday – DL/LB Tuesday – CB/S Here’s today’s prospects that improved and bruised their stock:   Cornerback Risers: Jason Varrett, CB, TCU - Varrett was a fringe first round guy before the Combine, but...
