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...

Down and Distance Mock Draft 2.0: First Round

Everyone and their brother turns into an analyst and throws their hat into the ring to see who’s more accurate come draft day. In that spirit, I present my second mock draft. 1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jameis Winston – QB, Florida State 2.  Tennessee Titans: Leonard...

Who the Mocks have the Saints picking at 13 and 31

Below is a collection of some mock drafts and who they have the Saints picking at 13 and 31. Lots of variability in these mocks which truly suggests that which direction they go is very much in flux. I’m only including select mocks that have happened since the Jimmy Graham trade which is why the ESPN guys (McShay and Kiper) don’t figure.   Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com 13th: Bup...

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. Unless the front office can acquire a starter-caliber player via the free agency process, it is a forgone conclusion that the franchise will try to select a cornerback as early as the first...

BROZ and I liked Jalen Collins this week in Drafttek—but that’s before we realized Eagles are going for Mariota…

Our hero analyst ~BROZ was sailing along on yet another mission from the goddess of the Eagles mock draft (Sally Starr) when all Hades broke loose this week. Chip Kelly took off his Clark Kent disguise and turned into Tom Landry. Now it is abundantly apparent that the Chippah is throwing off every conventional expectation we fans may have had about an orderly and predictable personnel...

Eagles 2015 Draft Prospect: LSU Cornerback Jalen Collins

We all know the corner position is a huge position of need for the Eagles. It is likely something they will spend a significant amount of money on in free agency. Bradley Fletcher will be walking out the door (good riddance) and it is still unknown whether or not the Eagles will retain Cary Williams. Williams’ fate will likely be dictated by whether or not they can obtain a key...

LSU’s Jalen Collins A Tantalizing Prospect For Steelers

It’s no secret that the Pittsburgh Steelers need some major retooling in their secondary, particularly at the cornerback spot. One name who’s rocketing up draft boards after an impressive showing at the combine is LSU’s Jalen Collins. Despite receiving a grade to stay in school for his senior season, the long-limbed corner entered the draft. […] LSU’s Jalen Collins A Tantalizing...

Potential Eagles Draft Targets – Defensive Backs

Cody Prewitt in coverage against a WR who the Eagles will face twice per year.Photo: Stacy Revere/Getty Images Saying that the Eagles need help in the secondary is akin to saying humans need oxygen to breath.  It’s by far their weakest position with only one starter likely to return in 2015. There will be some new blood coming in via free agency, but as we’ve learned recently...

Observations of the Defensive Backs at the NFL Scouting Combine

The 2015 NFL Scouting Combine came to a close after the defensive backs took to the field for their on-field drills. The cornerbacks and safeties were the last groups to show their skills.

If it were me, and it were my choice/decision to make, this would likely be the first position that I would address in this year's draft. Provided, of course, that the personnel was available to improve this defensive unit.If there was any unit more suspect than another this season, it would have to be the cornerback position. But even therein lies an inconsistency that plagued them...

Drafting Seahawks: Is Jalen Collins Tailor made for Seattle

So what would the vaunted Legion Of Boom even look like without the likes of Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman, Kam...
