  NFL | Daurice Fountain has scouts buzzing    Fri Jan 19, 11:04 PM

Northern Iowa WR Daurice Fountain has been one of the most impressive players during practices for the East-West Shrine Game, and his 'athleticism is legit,' according to an NFL scout.

Footballguys view: Fountain was great during the week of practice and he followed it up with a great game. He's seen as a mid-round pick right now, but Fountain presents tremendous value for any team that selects him. Fountain measures in at 6'1" 205 pounds but he plays larger than his size. He can make difficult catches and has the burst to get open on tight coverage.

Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph (foot) will not be able to play in the 2018 Senior Bowl because of a foot sprain, according to sources. He will not need to undergo surgery and is expected to be sidelined for two weeks. Rudolph still plans to go through measurements and interviews at the Senior Bowl.

  NFL | Roquan Smith entering 2018 draft    Mon Jan 15, 12:59 PM

Georgia LB Roquan Smith has announced that he is entering the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Smith is one of the best defensive playmakers entering the league in 2018. He has drawn comparisons to Thomas Davis (Panthers) because of his nose for the ball, disruptive play and thirst for hitting. We should see Smith go off the board as a top-10 pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

  NFL | Calvin Johnson not coming back    Sat Jan 13, 08:22 PM

Retired WR Calvin Johnson said he is not interested in playing professional football again and is enjoying his time off the field.

Footballguys view: Every year (just like with Barry Sanders years ago), we have to check in with Megatron to see if there's a chance we could see him again. Johnson also said he does not want to be a coach because it would take up too much of his time.

  NFL | Mason Rudolph part of Senior Bowl    Fri Jan 12, 11:12 PM

Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph has accepted an invitation to participate in the 2018 Senior Bowl.

Footballguys view: At 6'5" 235 pounds, Rudolph has the look of a starting NFL quarterback and he could be a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft. Rudolph put up a ton of passing yards in the spread system at Oklahoma State (13,618 career passing yards, 92 career passing touchdowns). We'll see how he processes information and works from under center during the week of practice in Mobile.

  NFL | Josh Freeman headed to CFL    Fri Jan 12, 09:39 PM

Free-agent QB Josh Freeman (Colts) has signed a two-year deal for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League.

Footballguys view: An interesting move to say the least. A first-round pick of the Buccaneers (2009), Freeman has spent the last two years out of the league. He's got a big arm and could stretch the field in the wide open Canadian game.

  NFL | Derrius Guice entering 2018 draft    Wed Jan 10, 06:18 PM

Louisiana State RB Derrius Guice has announced that he is entering the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Guice is one of the best running backs in this class (a loaded class in 2018). He's got the toughness to run inside and he does a good job of avoiding trash at the line of scrimmage. Guice runs with quickness and can make defenders miss in small space. He wasn't used much as a receiver out of the backfield for the Bayou Bengals (32 receptions in three seasons). Guice is currently seen as a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

  NFL | Calvin Ridley officially declares    Wed Jan 10, 01:52 PM

Alabama WR Calvin Ridley officially declared for the NFL draft Wednesday, Jan. 10.

Footballguys view: Ridley may be the best WR in this draft class. He's 6'1" 190 pounds and can cut a rug. Ridley is already savvy as a route-runner and uses suddenness to get open against tight coverage. He has incredible concentration and does a good job of looking passes into his hands. Ridley should be a first-round pick, no question, and there's a good chance he could land inside the top-10 selections.

  NFL | Vita Vea will enter draft    Sun Jan 7, 10:59 PM

Washington DT Vita Vea said he plans to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Vea is incredibly disruptive at 6'5" 332 pounds. He is arguably the best defensive tackle in this class. Even though he's listed as a nose tackle, Vea can play outside at defensive end if need be. He reminds some in the scouting community of Haloti Ngata. We should see Vea go off the board in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft.

  NFL | Keke Coutee opts for NFL    Sun Jan 7, 10:48 PM

Texas Tech WR Keke Coutee announced via social media that he plans to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Coutee is a slot WR at the pro level. He gets open consistently with speed and put up some good numbers in the Red Raiders pass happy system. Coutee looks the ball into his hands and runs crisp routes. He should be a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

  NFL | Sam Hubbard declares for draft    Sun Jan 7, 09:46 PM

Ohio State DE Sam Hubbard will forgo his final year of collegiate eligibility and enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Hubbard is 6'5" 266 pounds and can get after the quarterback. He has active hands and can control the edge as a run defender. His play needs to be more consistent, but his physical skill set and upside get him in the first-round conversation.

  NFL | Christian Kirk NFL bound    Sun Jan 7, 09:44 PM

Texas A&M WR Christian Kirk announced on Twitter that he plans to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Kirk has the nickname "Baby Beckham" by some in the scouting community. It's fitting because like Odell Beckham Jr, Kirk is a playmaker with the ball in his hands. Kirk measures in at 5'11" 200 pounds and has the ability to separate consistently in his routes. He's got strong hands and the quickness to make defenders miss in the open field, assets he uses effectively as a return man as well. Kirk is considered a second-round pick, but there's a chance he could make it into the first round of the 2018 NFL draft.

  NFL | Courtland Sutton headed to the NFL    Sun Jan 7, 09:38 PM

SMU WR Courtland Sutton announced via social media that he intends to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Sutton would have likely been a first-round pick had he chose to come out last year after his redshirt sophomore season. Instead, he returned to SMU and had another 1,000-yard season with double-digit touchdowns finishing 2017 with 68 catches for 1,085 yards and 12 touchdowns. At 6'4" 215 pounds, Sutton has a fine size/speed/athleticism combination coupled with strong hands and concentration. He should be in the first-round conversation for the 2018 NFL draft.

  NFL | Lamar Jackson has rare skills    Sat Jan 6, 09:32 PM

Louisville QB Lamar Jackson's combination of skills is usually only found in 'create-a-player' mode in video games, according to an AFC scout.

Footballguys view: That's a great way to describe Jackson's skill set. Many scouts just say that Jackson is a right-handed version of Michael Vick...and that comparison may not be too outlandish.

  NFL | Jordan Akins is NFL bound    Sat Jan 6, 09:25 PM

Central Florida TE Jordan Akins declared for the 2018 NFL Draft Saturday, Jan. 6.

Footballguys view: A high school quarterback, Akins was selected by the Texas Rangers in the 2010 MLB draft. When he started playing for UCF he was a starting wide receiver and return man. He transitioned to tight end and takes that WR skill set to his new position. Akins can create mismatches when he's on the field and is currently seen as a mid-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

  NFL | Tre'Quan Smith headed to the draft    Sat Jan 6, 09:21 PM

Central Florida WR Tre'Quan Smith will forgo his final year of collegiate eligibility and enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Smith finishes his college career as one of the most productive WRs in UCF history. In 2017, Smith had 54 catches for 1,082 yards and 13 touchdowns. At 6'1" 210 pounds, Smith can make acrobatic catches seem routine. He was a key player for UCF as they finished the 2017 season as the only undefeated team among FBS competitors.

  NFL | Auden Tate to enter draft    Sat Jan 6, 09:17 PM

Florida State WR Auden Tate announced via social media that he will forgo his senior season and enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Tate is a huge target, measuring in at 6'5" 225 pounds. His size advantage makes him difficult for smaller cornerbacks to deal with...especially in the red zone. Tate's stats in 2017 weren't great (40 catches for 548 yards), but he worked with a backup quarterback situation with the Seminoles and still snared 10 touchdown grabs this season. He has a second-round grade but might sneak his way into the first round.

  NFL | Tre'Quan Smith declares for NFL Draft    Sat Jan 6, 01:54 PM

University of Central Florida WR Tre'Quan Smith announced his intention to declare for the NFL Draft on Saturday, Jan. 6.

Footballguys view: Smith finishes his college career as one of the most productive WRs in UCF history. In 2017, Smith had 54 catches for 1,082 yards and 13 touchdowns. At 6'1" 210 pounds, Smith can make acrobatic catches seem routine. He was a key player for UCF as they finished the 2017 season as the only undefeated team among FBS competitors.

  NFL | D.J. Moore NFL bound    Fri Jan 5, 11:46 PM

Maryland WR D.J. X. Moore announced on Twitter that he will enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Moore was the Big 10 wide receiver of the year, and he produced at a consistent level during his college career with the Terrapins. Moore had 33 straight games with a reception in college, and he caught passes from eight different quarterbacks (four of them just this year). He is built like a running back and is strong after the catch. Moore can take short passes and turn them into long gains.

  NFL | Quenton Nelson going pro    Fri Jan 5, 11:37 PM

Notre Dame OG Quenton Nelson announced on social media that he will enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Nelson is the best guard in this class, and there's a chance he could be a top-10 pick in the 2018 NFL draft. He is an earth mover and controls his man at the point of attack. Any team looking for a 10-year quality starter at guard should be considering Nelson with a premium pick.

  NFL | Derwin James leaving for NFL    Fri Jan 5, 11:26 PM

Florida State S Derwin James announced on social media that he will forgo his final year of collegiate eligibility and enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: At 6'3" 211 pounds, James is an imposing safety who can play close to the line of scrimmage to stuff the run. He's not a deep cover guy, but James has the athleticism to cover tight ends over the middle of the field. James is one of the most intriguing players coming out in the draft, and he could be a top-10 selection in the 2018 NFL draft.

Link to story


  NFL | Josh Jackson headed to the draft    Fri Jan 5, 11:17 PM

Iowa CB Josh Jackson announced via social media that he will enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Jackson has tremendous ball skills as evidenced by his eight interceptions and 18 pass breakups in 2017. He has good length at 6'1" and the athleticism to make plays on the ball like a wide receiver. Jackson is known as a sure tackler and should be the first cornerback off the board in the 2018 NFL draft.

  NFL | Kerryon Johnson declares for draft    Fri Jan 5, 10:59 PM

Auburn RB Kerryon Johnson will forgo his senior season and enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Johnson has good vision and cutback ability when running the ball. He does a good job of understanding angles and has a knack for cutting through contact. Johnson played banged up in 2017 and still produced, showing toughness that scouts love. It's an outstanding RB class this year, so Johnson is looking at a second- or third-round grade for the 2018 NFL draft.

Link to story


  NFL | Josh Adams turning pro    Fri Jan 5, 09:55 PM

Notre Dame RB Josh Adams announced Friday, Jan. 5, on social media that he will enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: At 6'2" 225 pounds, Adams is a no-nonsense runner who loves to get downhill and run through defenders tasked with tackling him. He wasn't used much as a receiver out of the backfield for the Fighting Irish, but teams in need of a power element to their backfield should be interested. Adams is looking like a fourth-round selection in the 2018 NFL draft.

  NFL | Ronald Jones entering 2018 draft    Fri Jan 5, 03:39 PM

Southern California RB Ronald Jones has announced that he is declaring for the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Dubbed "RoJo" by his teammates, Jones has the willingness to run inside even though he's not a huge back (6' 200 pounds). Jones has good stop/start ability and he can jump-cut his way past defenders that penetrate into the backfield. He's seen as a second- or third-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Link to story


  NFL | Lamar Jackson coming out    Fri Jan 5, 09:57 AM

Louisville QB Lamar Jackson has declared for the 2018 NFL draft.

Footballguys view: Jackson is a dynamic athlete who can hurt a defense with his arm or his scrambling ability. He's a slender quarterback, so durability concerns are there for the Louisville passer. Jackson has a rocket arm, and the comparisons to Michael Vick may not be too outlandish.

Link to story


  NFL | Ryan Nall declares for draft    Thu Jan 4, 11:42 PM

Oregon State RB Ryan Nall announced that he will enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Over the last two seasons, the back they call the "Wrecking Nall" was the centerpiece of the Beavers offense. He finishes his OSU career with 2,216 rushing yards and 24 touchdowns, along with 56 receptions for 563 receiving yards and four touchdowns. His size is imposing at 6'2" 240 pounds, and he is difficult to bring down when he builds a head of steam. Nall runs with proper patience and has a little bit of shimmy to create space in the open field.

  NFL | Orlando Brown headed to the draft    Thu Jan 4, 11:40 PM

Oklahoma OT Orlando Brown Jr. has announced that he will enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Brown is considered to be one of the best tackle prospects in this year's class...but his future in the NFL might be at right tackle. He's a mauler who regularly tosses defenders out of his way as a run blocker. Athletic edge rushers will give him trouble at the pro level, and that could prompt a move inside to guard or to the opposite side at right tackle. Brown could be an early second-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft with the potential to go in the first.

Link to story


  NFL | Mark Andrews draft bound    Thu Jan 4, 10:12 PM

Oklahoma TE Mark Andrews announced via Twitter that he will enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Andrews is a move tight end who plays like a super sized wide receiver. He can make difficult grabs and he has the athleticism to threaten a defense down the seam. He currently is considered a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Link to story


  NFL | Equanimeous St. Brown to enter draft    Thu Jan 4, 10:05 PM

Notre Dame WR Equanimeous St. Brown announced that he will enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: With a name that sounds like it was plucked from Key & Peele's college all-star game, St. Brown enters the league as an intriguing prospect. His size (6'5" 205 pounds) makes him a force to be dealt with in the red zone, and he's used to a large target load. St. Brown ends his Irish career with 92 catches for 1,484 yards and 13 touchdowns. He posted those numbers despite QB struggles and changes during his time with the Fighting Irish. St. Brown is seen as a second-round pick at this time, but a strong showing in the pre-draft process could move him into the first.

  NFL | Arden Key entering draft    Thu Jan 4, 03:08 PM

Louisiana State LB Arden Key has announced that he is declaring for the 2018 NFL Draft.

  NFL | Sam Darnold enters 2018 draft    Wed Jan 3, 07:25 PM

Southern California QB Sam Darnold has announced that he is declaring for the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Many thought Darnold would return for another season at USC. Entering the draft stocks the QB position even more as there may be four or five selected in the first round. Darnold has the size, arm strength and anticipation to make a good (or great) NFL quarterback. He did make too many mistakes in 2017, and Darnold has a loopy release that will need to be tightened up at the pro level. His footwork also seems to be off when the pocket is clean. Even with all the question marks around him, Darnold should be a top-10 pick.

Link to story


  NFL | Josh Rosen declares for 2018 draft    Wed Jan 3, 06:58 PM

UCLA QB Josh Rosen has announced that he will enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Rosen is considered by some in the scouting community to be the best QB available this year. He's got all the tools scouts love; arm strength, accuracy, leadership. However, Rosen does have some injury concerns and there are some concerns about his attitude. He's an alpha male for sure, but there are some who question how well he will take to NFL coaching. Rosen is a lock to be a top-10 pick and he could be the no1 overall selection (even though he may not want to play for the Browns).

  NFL | Kamryn Pettway declares for draft    Wed Jan 3, 04:57 PM

Auburn RB Kamryn Pettway declared for the 2018 NFL draft Wednesday, Jan. 3.

Footballguys view: Pettway joins fellow Auburn RB Kerryon Johnson in leaving early for the NFL draft. He began his career at Auburn as a fullback and had an injury/suspension shortened 2017 season where he ran for 305 yards and six touchdowns. Pettway is 6'0" 240 pounds and there's not a lot of nuance to his game. He's a power back who runs with great balance and is tough to bring down when he builds a head of steam. He's likely to be a late-round pick or priority free agent.

  NFL | Dalton Schultz declares for draft    Tue Jan 2, 03:32 PM

Stanford TE Dalton Schultz announced Tuesday, Jan. 2, that he will enter the 2018 NFL draft.

Footballguys view: Schultz is a good all-around tight end who has drawn comparisons to Jason Witten (Cowboys). Don't look at the stats with Schultz as a "Y" tight end he didn't light up the box score. However, he's reliable and can use his size well...plus he does a good job of blasting open holes for the ground game. He had 55 catches for 555 yards and five touchdowns during his three-year career at Stanford.

  NFL | Korey Robertson declares for draft    Tue Jan 2, 02:29 PM

Southern Mississippi WR Korey Robertson declared for the 2018 NFL draft Tuesday, Jan. 2.

Footballguys view: Robertson is projected to be a second- or third-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft. At 6'2" 210 pounds, Robertson caught 76 passes for 1,106 yards and 12 touchdowns. He's got strong hands and is known to fight for passes at the point of the catch.

  NFL | Saquon Barkley to enter draft    Sun Dec 31, 10:05 PM

Penn State RB Saquon Barkley announced Sunday, Dec. 31, that he plans to declare for the 2018 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Barkley is the best running back in the 2018 NFL draft...and this is a great class of RBs entering the league. His game blends size, power, strength and speed on the field as a three-down player. At 5'11" 230 pounds, Barkley reminds some in the scouting community of David Johnson (Cardinals). Barkley is certainly going to be a top-10 pick and is a player fantasy owners will be taking no1 overall in rookie drafts.

  NFL | Sam Darnold the total package    Sat Dec 23, 11:19 PM

USC QB Sam Darnold has 'everything' you look for in an NFL quarterback, according to an NFC front office official. 'Could stand to clean up some mechanical stuff, but that's going to come with time,' the official said.

  NFL | Josh Allen offers upside    Fri Dec 22, 10:30 PM

Wyoming QB Josh Allen is 'really raw' but has all the talent you look for in an NFL quarterback, according to an AFC front office official. 'Coaches are going to see this guy and imagine everything he can be, and they're going to be all over their front offices to take him,' the official said.

Footballguys view: Allen is drawing comparisons to Carson Wentz (Eagles) or Joe Flacco (Ravens) because of his rocket arm, raw skill set and lower level of competition in college. The Wyoming gunslinger doesn't throw a lot of short passes, so his accuracy numbers won't look great (56.2 percent career completion percentage). He does have an incredibly strong arm and has no problem standing tall in front of the rush and delivering deep shots to challenge the defense. Allen does need to work on his short to intermediate accuracy if he wants to play up to his potential as a pro. He should be a first-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

  NFL | Josh Rosen a natural QB    Fri Dec 22, 10:17 PM

UCLA QB Josh Rosen is a 'natural' at the quarterback position, according to an NFC offensive coach. 'You watch him in the pocket and it's like he was born to do it,' the coach said. 'The way he sees the field, the way he operates the offense, just total command.'

Footballguys view: Rosen is arguably the best quarterback in this draft class. He is smart, accurate and can distribute the football with all sorts of different throws and throwing platforms. Rosen is a 'beat of a different drummer' sort of guy and there are question marks about his ability to take to coaching. Even with those questions, the film is undeniable and Rosen could be the no.1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

  NFL | DJ Moore declares for draft    Tue Dec 19, 02:17 PM

Maryland WR DJ Moore has decided to skip his senior season and will enter the NFL draft.

Footballguys view: Moore is a mid-round pick who set records for the Terrapins in college. He has good burst in and out of his breaks, and Moore has plenty of speed when he reaches his top gear. Moore can make tough catches near the sideline and isn't afraid to run routes over the middle either.

  NFL | Reggie Bush ready to call it a career    Sat Dec 16, 12:11 PM

Free-agent RB Reggie Bush told NFL Total Access on Friday, Dec. 15, that his career has come to an end.

Footballguys view: Bush hasn't played all year and couldn't find a team willing to take a chance on him after his 2016 season with the Bills that ended with him having negative rushing yards. The second-overall pick in the 2006 NFL draft, Bush had incredibly high expectations coming out of USC. He ends his career with 5,490 rushing yards, 36 rushing touchdowns, 477 catches, 3,598 receiving yards and 18 receiving touchdowns.
