  NFL | Javon Kinlaw a top prospect at Senior Bowl    Sun Jan 26, 03:00 PM

South Carolina DT Javon Kinlaw was one of the most impressive prospects at the Senior Bowl this week, in the opinion of NFL Network's Bucky Brooks. Kinlaw showed an exceptional combination of strength, power and athleticism in one-on-one drills during practice. He played mostly at defensive tackle during college but has the skills to play defensive end in a 3-4 defensive alignment.

Footballguys view: Kinlaw had a bit of Aaron Donald to his game during the practices at the Senior Bowl (where Donald looked dominant too years ago). He should be a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL draft and might land in the top 10. His game is all about disruption, strength, quickness and penetration to get after the quarterback.

  Redskins | Washington eyeing Chase Young?    Fri Jan 24, 09:15 PM

Ohio State DE Chase Young is one of the players defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio plans to evaluate ahead of the 2020 NFL Draft. 'It all starts for us with the penetrative, disruptive defensive linemen,' Del Rio said.

Footballguys view: LOL, of course they're considering Young...he's the best player in this draft. Young may be the second pick off the board but that's just because the Bengals need a quarterback. Pairing Young with Montez Sweat in Washington would give them pinchers on the outside.

  NFL | Neville Gallimore turning heads    Thu Jan 23, 11:48 PM

Oklahoma DT Neville Gallimore 'flashed some pass rush' during drills at the Senior Bowl, according to an AFC scout. 'He's pretty quick and several guys had trouble with him,' the scout said.

Footballguys view: Gallimore is twitchy for an interior defensive lineman and can generate interior pressure and disruption better than some of his peers. He projects as a three-down player and should be gone in the first two rounds.

Houston Texans defensive line coach Anthony Weaver was promoted to defensive coordinator Monday, Jan. 20.

Footballguys view: Romeo Crennel's contract expired and now he's looking for a new gig...or perhaps considering retirement. Weaver has a talented defense to work with and should be able to get them playing up to their potential in 2020.

  Texans | Romeo Crennel not coming back    Mon Jan 20, 08:41 AM

Houston Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel is not expected back in 2020. Defensive line coach Anthony Weaver is the top candidate to replace him.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Crennel's defense did not perform up to their potential in 2019. We might see Crennel go ahead and retire from football but perhaps some team would want to bring him on as a senior advisor.

  Falcons | Takkarist McKinley goes under the knife    Tue Jan 14, 11:39 PM

Atlanta Falcons DE Takkarist McKinley (shoulder) underwent shoulder surgery Tuesday, Jan. 14.

Footballguys view: McKinley was shut down with this shoulder injury in mid-December of 2019. A first-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft, McKinley is more famous for dropping 'F' bombs on stage at the draft than he is for anything he's done on the field. He finished 2019 with just 3.5 sacks and 13 QB hits in 14 games.

  NFL | A.J. Epenesa entering draft    Tue Jan 14, 05:06 PM

Iowa DE A.J. Epenesa announced Tuesday, Jan. 14, that he will be entering the 2020 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Epenesa should be a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL draft. He's big and strong, measuring in at 6'6" 280 pounds. Epenesa uses a bull-rush to get after the quarterback and can get to the backfield quickly. He does a good job setting the edge as a run-defender. Epenesa will have to learn more pass-rushing moves to be an even more dangerous pro.

Seattle Seahawks LB Jadeveon Clowney went upstairs to general manager John Schneider's office and told him how much he loves being with the team, head coach Pete Carroll said Monday, Jan. 13. There were reports earlier in the day that Clowney wants to sign with a Super Bowl contender.

Footballguys view: Clowney fit in with the Seahawks...and they are a perennial Super Bowl contender. He didn't post the sack numbers that people expect, but Clowney was playing with a core muscle injury that will require offseason surgery. At full strength, and fully motivated with the Seahawks, Clowney should have a strong 2020 season.
