Stephon Tuitt concerns

5

One scout told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that Notre Dame DE Stephon Tuitt and Falcons DE Tyson Jackson are the "same guy." "That's all he is," the scout added. "Big dude. Zero pass rush." Opinions vary on Tuitt. Another scout called him "athletic for a big man" but questioned his effort by saying "he just kind of wallows around." A third scout said Tuitt plays too "stiff" and "is not elite." 6-foot-6, 300-pound Tuitt projects as a 3-4 end like Jackson, but has more pass-rush upside and will likely be a top-50 pick.

Eric Ebron concerns

1

Take North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron for example. Considered by many to be the top tight end available by leaps and bounds, Ebron’s negative qualities are being broadcasted for the world to hear. First it was the "drop rate" being higher than the other tight ends available in this year’s draft. Now, it centers around something you can’t measure on the field at the NFL Combine: his personality. Appearing on WGR Sports Radio 550 Tuesday morning, Tony Pauline of DraftInsider.net says the tight end’s act wears thin for some. "He's a high maintenance sort of personality. He's a me type of player and he always has been. He's a me type of person on the field and off the field, and I've known this since November. He's the kind of guy that was complaining when he didn't feel he was getting the ball enough. He's not well liked by all of his teammates. He's not a prima donna, but he's a bit self-centered. I don't know if it's just a maturity question, or that's the way it is. I hear it runs pretty deep." - Tony Pauline Pauline also mentioned that the New York Giants are backing off the idea of taking Ebron because of his personality, and that it’s something that has to be considered by any team thinking about drafting him. The draft analyst did say that his talent is top notch and that he’s the new NFL prototype for tight end.

Kony Ealy concerns

1

3. KONY EALY, Missouri (6-4, 265, 4.69, 1-2) — Fourth-year junior with 25 starts in 38 games at DE. "I think he could grow into a five-technique," said one scout. "I see him as a rush guy like Paul Kruger was in Baltimore. Where 80, 90% of the time he's rushing. He could do that and eventually grow into a D-end." The 4-3 teams view him as a base end. "I question his fire," another scout said. "If you got the right kind of coaching and put a boot into him, he might be a very good player. Whenever something doesn't work he just shuts her down. He's just kind of out of control. He gets washed out, then he'll make a big-time play." Finished with 93 tackles (27½ for loss) and 14 sacks. Wonderlic of 10. "He thinks he's already an Aldon Smith-type player," a third scout said. "Classic con man. I don't trust this kid. He will be just a big pain in the (expletive). He's one of those 'let somebody else draft him' guys." From New Madrid, Mo. Added a fourth scout: "There's no outstanding traits about him other than he gives you some versatility in a bad (defensive-line) draft. He's a mess. Somebody's going to draft him because they need a defensive end and overdraft him."

WR or TE?

2

3. Jace Amaro, Texas Tech: Amaro had a breakout last season with over 100 receptions. He's a slot player with little to offer as a blocker. He is a solid route runner. The West Virginia and Oklahoma State games made me feel like he was a sure first-round pick with 24 receptions, 310 yards and three touchdowns. He tries to block effectively but he really is an oversized wide receiver and would be a great fit on a team playing 12 personnel (1 RB, 2TE, 2WR) as the move tight end. I see him as an early second-round pick.

Dominique Easley

Dominique Easley - DL - Gators NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports that he "heard from two top scouts" that Florida DT Dominique Easley could go in the first-round. "Heard from 2 top scouts who believe Florida DT Dominique Easley goes in 1st round, even with torn ACL. Would be a shocker…but he’s a beast," Rapoport tweeted. Interesting to note that Easley's medical report just came back positive, which was a great sign for interested teams. Teams that have had reported interest in Easley, drafting in the back end of the first: Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots and the San Fransisco 49ers.

Kirk Cousins

Kirk Cousins - QB - Redskins The Cleveland Plain Dealer suggests the Browns could target Kirk Cousins in a draft-day trade. "It's all on the table. It might even include trade discussions for Kirk Cousins," writes beat reporter Mary Kay Cabot. The Browns have ten picks in the upcoming draft, while the Redskins are without a first-rounder and may be looking for additional selections in what is widely considered the deepest draft in recent memory. The Redskins are reportedly seeking a second-round pick for Cousins. That's not going to happen. We bet they'd take a third-rounder. Ultimately, Cousins is likely to be holding the clipboard as Washington's backup in 2014. Related: Browns Source: Cleveland Plain Dealer Apr 20 - 10:20 AM

Hmmm, LaMicheal James

LaMichael James - RB - 49ers ESPN's Adam Teicher suggests the Chiefs could pursue RB LaMichael James. The 49ers are currently shopping James and could eventually release him. Kansas City is unlikely to have much interest in James as a running back, but he could help replace Dexter McCluster's role on special teams. The 61st overall pick in 2012, James has appeared in just 14 games the last two seasons. Related: Chiefs Source: ESPN.com Apr 19 - 6:10 PM

Brandon Flowers - DB - Chiefs ESPN Chiefs blogger Adam Teicher considers Brandon Flowers a candidate to be released next offseason. The Chiefs are facing major cap issues the next two seasons and want to extend both Justin Houston and Alex Smith. Flowers struggled in DC Bob Sutton's press-man scheme last year, finishing with just one interception and grading out negatively in pass coverage. Releasing Flowers would save $7 million against the cap in 2015. Source: ESPN.com Mar 29 - 7:37 PM

Raiders Offensive Line 2014?

Austin Howard - T - Raiders Coach Dennis Allen confirmed Austin Howard will be tried at right guard. Allen said the Raiders want to start the "best five linemen." Howard inked a five-year, $30 million deal on day two of free agency. If we were to predict what the Raiders would like their Week 1 line to look like, we'd go LT Donald Penn, LG Kevin Boothe, C Stefen Wisniewski, RG Howard, and RT Menelik Watson. Tony Bergstrom could push Boothe. Mike Brisiel is a release candidate. Source: Alex Marvez on Twitter Mar 24 - 9:18 PM

Aaron "Shoot me now" Murray

Aaron Murray - QB - Bulldogs Georgia QB Aaron Murray has a "hot name" in scouting circles, says ESPN's Todd McShay. "He showed toughness this year, he can handle pressure," McShay said. "He doesn't have great size, he has marginal arm strength, but in the right system, a Sean Payton system, he can have success and be a really good backup, and who knows, one day could maybe be a starter." Murray, progressing well from ACL surgery in November, is hopeful he will be able to work out at Georgia’s pro day on April 16. Source: ESPN's First Draft Podcast Mar 22 - 4:39 PM

But more importantly, the Chiefs don't have a ton of cap space ― only $4.8 million, according to NFL Players Association records ― and Jackson has a 2014 cap number of $12.5 million. The Chiefs could conceivably make the money work by cutting some players or restructuring some deals (which is always easier said than done, by the way), but it's likely Jackson, 27, would also have to be open to restructuring his current deal, which is set to pay him about $30 million over the next three years.

2014 draft comp picks?

7

Over the last 2 years, my friend Craig Turner has done compensatory pick projections very accurately for my former football blog. Last year, he correctly matched 24 teams with the correct round for which they received a pick. He projected an additional 5 teams to receive a pick, but missed by just one round. The 3 remaining picks he missed on were due to some gray area, which he learns from every year.

Defensive adjustments 2014

+

With Talib moving on to the Denver Broncos, the Patriots countered by bringing in CB Darrelle Revis. In addition to it being clear that the Broncos and Patriots are in a heated battle for AFC supremacy, it’s also quite clear that Belichick believes in his new model of defense. Just as recently as two years ago, Patriots fans were lamenting the use of "off coverage" (what fan base doesn’t hate off coverage?), but last year saw New England press opposing receivers as much as any team in the league.

Ryan Shazier

+

Ryan Shazier - LB - Buckeyes Scouts will head to Ohio State's pro day hoping to ascertain Ryan Shazier's ideal position at the next level. The event takes place on Friday in Columbus. "Shazier is unquestionably one of the most explosive athletes in the draft, but scouts are still undecided about the Ohio State linebacker's ideal position at the next level," wrote NFL.com's Bucky Brooks. "Shazier shows exceptional burst as an edge rusher and is an exceptional sideline-to-sideline player from the second level. He runs down ball carriers from the backside yet is instinctive enough to sort out run-pass plays in the backfield and fall back into pass coverage when necessary." The NFL adores versatile players, and Shazier is that. Shazier (6-foot-2, 230 pounds) tweaked his hamstring late last month, so hopefully he's fully healed. Source: NFL.com Mar 3 - 6:51 PM

Sack Masters

7

How Quickly Did They Get to the QB? Measured here is the time from snap to sack for each pass rushers. Generally, times greater than 5 seconds are coverage sacks. Times between 3.5 and 5 seconds are the majority of sacks and what you would call "average sacks". Sacks faster than 3.5 seconds are speed sacks which result from a good jump off the line or just great burst.
