How Myles Garrett fits in Gregg Williams’ 4-3 Under defense

The Cleveland Browns picked Myles Garrett first overall in the 2017 NFL Draft. Garrett is an explosive athlete with the length and strength to be a dominant pass rushing threat in Gregg Williams’ defense. At Texas A&M, he frequently dealt with double teams as he is the type of pass rusher that teams have to

Ethan Pocic is a huge upgrade for Seahawks’ offensive line

The NFL Draft is officially over and now it’s time to look at how the different players fit their new NFL teams. Ethan Pocic, a center the Seattle Seahawks drafted in the second round, was LSU’s most versatile player. Even though he played most of his college career at center (27 starts) , he also

Grading the first round quarterbacks: Trubisky, Mahomes, Watson

Three quarterbacks were taken in the first 12 picks of the 2017 NFL Draft: The Chicago Bears chose Mitch Trubisky at 2nd overall, the Kansas City Chiefs chose Patrick Mahomes at 10th overall, and the Houston Texans chose Deshaun Watson at 12th overall. All three teams had to trade up to select them. Earlier this

Seahawks should draft Ryan Ramczyk if he is available

Ryan Ramczyk’s (pronounced “Ram-Check”) path to the draft has been rather interesting. After he was a First-Team All-State tackle in high school, he turned down offers from major FBS programs to enter a technical school. He then transferred to the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point, a Division III program. Playing there for two seasons,

DeShone Kizer is the number one quarterback in the draft

If you are a fan of college football, you will remember when Notre Dame opened their season versus the University of Texas in Austin. I say that because this game was absolutely incredible. It featured an epic back-and-forth match that went into double overtime. In this game, DeShone Kizer beat out Malik Zaire scoring six

Mel Kiper would give the Seahawks an “A” for drafting Garett Bolles

In Mel Kiper’s latest three-round mock draft, he became the general manager and made selections based on which players he thinks are the best fit for each team. With the Seattle Seahawks’ first round pick, he selected offensive tackle Garett Bolles from Utah who is a “mauler and probably better on the right side of

Patrick Mahomes QB Scouting Report Cover

Patrick Mahomes has awful mechanics, but a cannon for an arm

What is the price for the ultimate backyard quarterback? That’s what we will find out with Patrick Mahomes from Texas Tech. The former three-star, dual threat quarterback became their starter as early as his freshman season, unseating Davis Webb who then transferred to Cal.

Mitch Trubisky QB Scouting Report Cover

Mitch Trubisky’s red flags make me hesitant to draft him in the first

Becoming a full-time starter for just one season, Mitch Trubisky from North Carolina is seen by many as a first round selection in the upcoming NFL Draft. The former three-star, dual threat quarterback from Ohio, spent his first three seasons backing up Marquise Williams before finally starting during the 2016 season. After a highly productive

Consensus Mock Draft Intro 4-10

2017 consensus NFL mock draft: 75 mock drafts rolled into one

After the Seattle Seahawks signed Luke Joeckel and Oday Aboushi, it looks for now like the offensive line is in a much better position than it was last year. Joeckel-Glowinksi-Britt-Aboushi-Ifedi already sounds better than Fant-Glowinksi-Britt-Ifedi-Gilliam. Outside of the offensive line, the Seahawks next major position of need has seemed to have gotten more strained. I

Joe Mixon RB Scouting Report Cover

Joe Mixon has first round talent, but is he worth the risk?

Morality or football potential? This is the question general managers will face in evaluating the prospect of drafting Joe Mixon this year. A former five-star, all-purpose back in the 2014 recruiting class, Mixon chose Oklahoma over Wisconsin, Cal, and UCLA. As a freshman, he was involved in an assault case where a security camera captured

Deshaun Watson QB Scouting Report Cover

Deshaun Watson needs to sit for a season before starting in NFL

One of the most controversial prospects in the 2017 NFL Draft is Deshaun Watson. Supporters believe he’s a franchise quarterback based on his clutch performances in the college playoffs when he led the Clemson Tigers to a comeback victory over Alabama. Critics, on the other hand, believe he has a high probability of failing based

Seattle Seahawks Team Needs

What are the Seahawks biggest needs in the NFL Draft?

With the NFL Draft approaching, I wanted to take a brief look at the biggest needs for the Seattle Seahawks. I also looked at some potential targets the team can acquire after the bulk of the free agents have signed. In my opinion, the three biggest needs are offensive tackle, cornerback, and pass rushing defensive
