Colts Should Look for Hybrid Defensive Backs in Draft

Some teams are easier to predict in mock drafts who they will end up taking, but the Eagles have become...

The Best Prospect at Every Position in the Draft

Every team looks to walk away from the NFL draft with at least one difference maker. In an ideal world all your draft picks make the 53 man roster; some develop from the sidelines, others are role players quickly, and maybe if you’re lucky one will be a superstar.

Our own dear BROZ undergoes a sex change whilst adjusting his Eagles mock draft to compensatory pick interference…..

Haha, just kidding about BROZ’ sex change operation!!! But when you throw in the “Compensatory Picks” variable into a mock draft, it really messes up BROZ’ orientation, particularly in the 4th and 5th Rounds… By the way, if BROZ really did turn himself into a chick, this is how I imagine that fine Virginia man-athlete would emerge from surgery and rehab: BROZ as a fairly...

2015 NFL Draft: Steelers Can Find Value with Day Two CBs

As I have stated multiple times over the last three months, the Pittsburgh Steelers will be in need of a serious makeover at the cornerback position by the time the 2015 regular season begins.
