Who Will FSU Miss Most From 2014?

Spring practice is underway in Tallahassee as Florida State has the unenviable task of replacing its winningest senior class ever. The Seminoles not only lose seven senior starters on offense, but FSU also loses five players early to the NFL Draft with four coming on defense. The future remains bright for Florida State as the ‘Noles hope to build on three consecutive ACC crowns...

2015 Post-Free Agency Mock Draft: Leonard Williams Slips To Nine

Tampa Bay Buccaneers1              Jameis Winston - QB   Florida StateThe Buccaneers have multiple holes on defense and their offensive line, with guys like Leonard Williams and Dante Fowler being possible selections here, but they do not seem to be happy with Mike Glennon at helm, so quarterback still makes the most sense.

Video: Florida State’s P.J. Williams’ Box Jump Is Extremely Impressive

Jameis Winston gets most of the publicity out of this year’s Florida State players in the NFL Draft, but a number of other former Seminoles are enticing prospects as well. Cornerback P.J. Williams was one of the most important players on the FSU defense, and projects to be drafted in the first two rounds of this spring’s draft. Williams posted a video of himself doing a box jump...

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...

What Tramon Williams' Departure Could Mean for Packers

For many Packers fans, the lasting memory of Tramon Williams could be seeing the nine-year veteran on the wrong end of Russell Wilson’s game-winning touchdown pass in the 2014 NFC Championship Game. The 31-year-old cornerback, who will turn 32 later this month, will reportedly be pursued on the free agent market by the very same team that ended his title hopes last season – the...

What Would The Eagles Give The Jets For Pick No. 6?

This game of connect the dots is reasonably simple. Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota is arguably the top quarterback in this year's draft. Assuming the Bucs take Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston and the Titans pass on Mariota for somebody like Leonard Williams, he is likely to be available for the Jets at No. 6.While the Jets need a quarterback, so do the Eagles.

THREE AND OUT: Too soon to predict Lions' top pick

FIRST DOWN The only thing that changes faster than a weather forecast is a mock draft. That's particularly true at this time of year as draft analysts process all the information coming out of the recent scouting combine. Free agency, however, doesn't begin until March 10.

The Top Five Prospects For The Seattle Seahawks

5.) P.J. Williams - CB   Florida StateWith Byron Maxwell expected to leave, the Seahawks are in need of a big, physical corner to start opposite of Richard Sherman. P.J. Williams, at 6-foot and 194 pounds, fits the bill. Williams is very physical at the line of scrimmage and is able to carry receivers down the field. Some downside for Williams is that he was too physical and far...

Saints 2015 Draft Board 2.0 (post combine)

After letting some time sink in post combine I’m ready to unveil my new and improved board. Looking back at my old board I think it was pretty good at the top but faded down the stretch. This one is better rounded with appropriate prospects down the list. I envision the board like this: once a player on the board is draft, whoever is the highest remaining player is the guy the...
