Two Giants named to NFL.com's All-Under 25 Team

Golden Nuggets: Why we should possibly wait to draft a quarterback.

San Francisco 49ers links for Friday March 24, 2017 It would be nice to draft a shiny new quarterback of the future in the first round of the draft but is that the right choice? Chances are very likely that Shanahan and Lynch will get one chance to pick a quarterback in the first found of a draft during their careers with the 49ers and there is a very good chance that their success or lack of success will be defined by that choice. Do they really need to make that choice this year or would it be better to wait? I am in no way referring to whether the draft class is going to be better next...

Michael Wilhoite signs with Seahawks

Naturally. The San Francisco 49ers have seen another one of their free agents land a new job. Linebacker Michael Wilhoite has signed with the Seattle Seahawks, according to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport. Wilhoite worked his way up from the 49ers practice squad, eventually earning a starting role. He took over as starting inside linebacker in 2014 when NaVorro Bowman tore up his knee. Wilhoite remained in the starting lineup in 2015 after Patrick Willis retired. In 2016, the 49ers ended up in an extensive rotation at inside linebacker.

We aren’t talking players here, we’re asking specifically about positions What position would you most like to see the New York Giants upgrade with the 23rd overall selection in the 2017 NFL Draft. Over on the NFL Reddit page a user recently posted that question to fans of each team with a first-round pick. The result was that 38.5 percent of Giants fans who voted selected offensive tackle. That probably isn’t a shock. Thing is, this particular poll drew only 46 total responses. I like the question, but I know we can do better than that in terms of response. So, I will ask you guys...

The 49ers head coach indicated he would not be at every private QB workout the 49ers conduct. The Stanford University Pro Day took place on Thursday, and naturally the San Francisco 49ers had a contingent on hand at a campus that is just down the road from the team’s Santa Clara headquarters. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan took in the event, as he did not join the 49ers brain trust on their QB tour of North Carolina, Clemson, and Notre Dame. 49ers beat writers were on hand, and had plenty to report from the event.

All the moves that have happened over the course of the last few weeks would suggest an overhaul is coming in the secondary. By letting the likes of Morris Claiborne, Brandon Carr, Barry Church and J.J. Wilcox all walk in free agency; the Cowboys seem primed to revamp the entire backside of their defense. Looking at the quality of defensive backs in this draft class, can you really blame them? If you listen to our man Landon McCool’s BTB podcast, he laid out a pretty interesting but plausible theory on the matter. His thoughts are that the Cowboys are finally going to get back to a...

Chicago Bears 7 Round Mock Draft

Every mock draft I go through, I’ll be sure to take a different mindset. In my first one, I went strict best player available. My last one, was the trade for Jimmy Garoppolo edition. This time, I went with what I would do if I were making the picks for the Chicago Bears, but with a couple of caveats. First off, I wouldn’t go too far down my board just to find a player I really liked. General managers generally stick with their draft boards, and the one I was playing with was the CBS Sports’ board. Scouts, coaches and GMs spend a lot of time ranking players, so I had to trust the...

Green Bay has locked up a big depth signing for the defensive line. Two weeks after free agency officially began, the Green Bay Packers have locked up a significant piece for their defensive front. With Letroy Guion under suspension for the first four games of the 2017 season, the Packers were in need of another body on the defensive line. They have found that body in Ricky Jean-Francois. According to Adam Schefter, Francois has signed a one-year deal with the Packers worth $3 million. The 30-year-old should be a good scheme fit for the Packers’ defense, as he can play the 5-technique...
