Big Board, Version 5: New faces break into Klatt's Top 50

The NFL Draft is right around the corner and there is very little, if any, time for these players to change perceptions that have been created over the last year. Two players make their debut on the Big Board as UCF wide receiver Breshad Perriman and Wake Forest cornerback Kevin Johnson slide into the top 50. Perriman was previously inconsistent with his hands and that's why I shied...

Can A.J. Green Be the Best Wide Receiver in the NFL?

A.J Green has almost always been in the conversation for the best wide reciever in the league, but it seems that players like Calvin Johnson, Dez Bryant, and Jordy Nelson seem to be above his name on that list. Green has his own reasons for being on the top of that exclusive list, as going to four straight Pro Bowls in his first four seasons is pretty impressive. In every game Green...

Houston Texans: Andre Johnson’s Future

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports For years Wide Receiver Andre Johnson has been considered one of the best receivers in the NFL and the saving grace of the Houston Texans offense; however, after 11 seasons in Houston, Johnson may find himself in a new uniform in 2014.

Fantasy Studs and Duds – Wide Receiver Edition

  John Geliebter – USA TODAY Sports The wide receiver position is one of the deepest in the NFL, with at least one viable star per team, especially from a Fantasy Football perspective. Outside of Megatron (Calvin Johnson), who won’t be a part of this speculation, there isn’t a receiver in the league I would feel comfortable drafting in the first, or even in the second round...

The Top 10 NFL Offenses For The 2014 Season

We love offense as football fans. We all know defense wins championships and without a solid defense you can forget about becoming a Super Bowl champion. But what draws us all in is the offense. Bigger and faster receivers. Tight ends whom a defense cannot contain. More vertical passing attacks. Running backs who can catch 50 passes out of the backfield. Mobile quarterbacks. Forty...

How do you size up against a football player? Take the Wonderlic to find out!

We all know “that guy,” the one sitting there on the couch next to you, chugging beers and chomping on hot wings, declaring to the world, “I could do better than that!” Well, while it’s incredibly unlikely any of us armchair quarterbacks could sling the ball like Peyton Manning (or even Tim Tebow, let that sink in), there is the possibility we could match wits with NFL...

Week 14 Observations

There were 90 touchdowns scored on Sunday, breaking the previous one-day record of 87. The bad weather helped on that front, with teams going for it rather than kicking field-goals, and defenses slipping around while chasing LeSean McCoy, Jeremy Ross and Cordarrelle Patterson.
