Mock draft roundup 2.0: Offensive linemen still pegged to Vikings at No. 30

The Vikings are about five weeks from being on the clock at pick No. 30 in the first round. General manager Rick Spielman and the Vikings personnel department will continue evaluations across the country during college pro days this week, featuring Georgia today as well as Ohio State and Notre Dame on Thursday. One player pegged to the Vikings, Buckeyes center/guard Billy Price, isn’t expected to compete Thursday due to a pectoral injury suffered at the combine last month. However, Price and other offensive linemen are still the most common selection among draft analysts for the Vikings to...

2018 NFL Draft prospect profile - Connor Williams, OT, Texas

Could Williams be a long-term solution for the Giants’ offensive line? The New York Giants began retooling their offensive line in free agency, however, they still need to add upgrades and potential long-term starting solutions at nearly every spot. Texas Longhorns left tackle Connor Williams came in to the 2017 season as a potential top 10 pick, but has seen his stock drop dramatically following a poor start to an injury-plagued year. Williams might yet be a franchise left tackle, but injury concerns, as well as questions about where his natural fit is on an NFL line could cause...

The Linc - Former NFL doctor weighs in on Carson Wentz’s recovery progress

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 3/20/18. Let's get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... Carson Wentz throwing, which is to be expected - San Diego Union-TribuneWhile these throws are fairly static, Wentz looks good. But that he is at this point about three months after surgery to repair two of his four main knee ligaments is not a surprise. It was his left knee, not his throwing shoulder that was injured. If this were Andrew Luck, it would be a big deal. We have said all along there is little question he will be ready to throw by training camp and start in the regular season opener...

Would former Jaguars WR Allen Hurns be a good fit for the Packers?

There’s a Jordy Nelson-shaped hole opposite of Davante Adams in Green Bay. Should the Packers consider adding recently-released Allen Hurns? Per Adam Schefter, WR Allen Hurns has been cut by the Jacksonville Jaguars after just two seasons playing under the massive four-year, $40 million contract extension he signed in the 2016 off-season. That contract was the product of Hurns blowing up in 2015 with 64 catches, 1,031 yards and 10 touchdowns. In the subsequent seasons, however, Hurns was plagued with hamstring and ankle injuries that caused him to miss 11 of a possible 32 regular season...

Offseason quiz: How bad was Blair Walsh in 2017

Fans of the Seattle Seahawks can’t stand the name Blair Walsh and want him to have nothing to do with the franchise going forward after his performance on the field in 2017. He missed kicks. He potentially cost the Seahawks multiple games. And he will not be fondly remembered by fans in the future. I had a lot of fun seeing the results of the running game polls earlier this offseason, and Monday’s poll regarding Paul Richardson’s injury history is shaping up to be another good one. However, to avoid kicking Walsh too hard while he’s down, I’ll go ahead and jump right into the...

MTD Mock Draft, Mar. 19

Mocking the Draft’s Dan Kadar has a new mock that reinforces the Rams’ need to replace OLB Robert Quinn. Since the beginning of mock draft season, there have been three periods for the Los Angeles Rams. First with the expected departure of CB Trumaine Johnson and the Achilles injury for CB Kayvon Webster, there was the Great CB Mock Era. Prior to the first of the wild pre-free agency activities, major mocks had the Rams taking a cornerback at a 75% clip. Then came the madness. The trade for CB Marcus Peters. The trade for CB Aqib Talib. Trading away OLB Robert Quinn and trading away ILB...

Offseason quiz: How injury prone was Seahawks WR Paul Richardson?

Sunday I took a quick look at the production the Seattle Seahawks have had from their second wide receiver position over the last six years, positing that the team won’t miss Paul Richardson as much as many seem to fear as his production was largely in line with other receivers who have filled the same role. Interestingly, as of the time of writing, roughly a quarter of the comments on the article mentioned how much time Richardson has spent on IR and how injuries derailed his development. It’s impossible to argue that injuries did not hurt his development, as the torn ACL he suffered...

Patriots placing low-risk bet on past production when it comes to Jeremy Hill and the end zone

Two running backs amassed 29 rushing touchdowns between 2014 and 2016. One was Jeremy Hill. There are currently five running backs on the New England Patriots’ roster. None have rushed for more touchdowns than the one who wasn’t on it until Friday. Jeremy Hill got into the end zone exactly zero times in 2017, finishing his final regular season as a Cincinnati Bengal with 37 carries for 116 yards, one fumble, and seven games played before being placed on injured reserve in November to undergo ankle surgery. But over the LSU product’s first three seasons in the NFL, only one back...

Former Raiders OT Marshall Newhouse signs on with Bills

Jets Film Mashup: Spencer Long

After a season of ineptitude at the center position, the Jets found themselves some new blood in the middle with former Redskin Spencer Long. Initially, I was very disappointed in this signing. Long’s grades shrivel in the presence of other free agent centers like Weston Richburg and Ryan Jensen, either of which I was hoping would be the next Jets center. However, after diving in a little more, I’m not all that mad at the addition. I think the grades undersell him, especially considering that many around the Redskins have said that Long was playing through injury much of 2017. The...

Seahawks Draft Profile: Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia

Chubb then followed up that eye-catching performance with an incredible freshman season with the Bulldogs, rushing for 1547 yards and 14 touchdowns. A gruesome knee injury wiped out a good portion of his sophomore season and left people wondering how much of his elite athletic ability would remain when he tested at the Scouting Combine.

2018 NFL Draft prospect profile: Tyquan Lewis, DL, Ohio State

Could Lewis be a contributor on the Giants’ defensive line? One of the more intriguing sub-plots to the New York Giants’ 2018 offseason is their transition to James Bettcher’s defense. When healthy, the Giants’ defense in Steve Spagnuolo’s second stint as defensive coordinator featured a powerful defensive line that could win the line of scrimmage while exotic and aggressive blitz packages provided the pass rush with a spark. But when the defense, and secondary in particular, was hit by injuries in 2017, the Giants’ once-formidable defense crumbled. James Bettcher’s defense...
