2021 NFL Draft Player Ratings

1st Round.

By TOM

2021 NFL Draft

Player Ratings Part I.

Creating the top 16 was tough. Which means this is a good Draft. I think this is a great Draft. A lot of extra talent will be fleeing the FBS due to Covid. There are so many players who have been lost in the shuffle. Ronnie Perkins really showed me that. I liked his Tape at the end of the 2019 season. Then he came back to Oklahoma for a few games and his play jumped off the Tape. He had 5.5 Sacks in six games. He was truly great. I really liked his Tape, because I saw him as a 2nd Round guy who could be a steal. But now I don’t see how he makes it out of the 1st.

I am also very high on Patrick Jones’ elite get off. I think he is a 1st Round pick. I love Carlos Basham’s size. I just don’t think he is a 1st. Kwity Paye has 1st round Traits. Love his Tape. But not production. He had two Sacks in one game this season and that’s it. Can he find the ball?

I love Azeez Ojulari’s traits. He has great quicks, twitch and flash, but never thought he’d declare. He did: "I'd also like to thank coach Smart and the whole staff at UGA for believing in me,” Azeez said as he declared for the Draft. “Playing between the hedges on Saturdays is something I'll be proud of forever. To my teammates, my brothers, y'all are my family for life. As far as what's next, I have decided to declare for the 2021 NFL Draft. Wherever this next chapter takes me, I will always be a Dawg." That surprised me.

But, the first half of the 1st Round will be defined by the QBs. Can Fields hop over Lawrence after he beat him in the 1st Round of the Playoffs? No. What if he beats Alabama in the 2nd Round? Yes? Has BYU’s Wilson, who had a great season, hopped over NDSU’s Trey Lance, after he had his only two turnovers of his College career in his one game season? Can the Pats trade up if one of the them slips out of the top 10? (That’s the only question I really care about;-)

ONE

Trevor Lawrence- 6-6, 220, Clemson, #16

QB

01/2021: He has such a great arm. He throws a beautiful ball. He is so calm, cool and confident in the pocket that he makes it all look so easy. Master of the Clemson Offense. Love how he cheers for his teammates. He threw up 31 in the 1st against a very good Pitt Defense. Tough. Smart. Courageous. Calm. And, has a beautiful arm.

They are such a different Offense with Lawrence at QB. He just makes it look easy against excellent Defenses. He is so smooth and easy throwing the ball. Plays with absolute confidence. Make it look easy. He throws a perfect looking ball. He can stand in the pocket as the blitzer charges into his face unblocked, and throw a perfect pass. I mean, he’s the top-rated player on my Board, obviously, but it is easy to forget how truly great a thrower he is.

It was easy to forget how truly great he is when he was injured. Then he came back against Pittsburgh. He was as perfect a thrower as I have seen. He is so clearly the top play in this Draft. It isn’t even really close. He is also an excellent athlete and runner. Not just a pocket passer. He can get outside and make the great throw on the run as well. (9,698 yards passed / 66.5 completion percentage / 88 touchdowns thrown to 16 interceptions).

Okay… so.,, not really any choice here. Lawrence is the best QB prospect since Elway. He came back last week against Pitt, and played as perfect a game as I have ever seen against a very good Pitt team. But it is his ability to win games that makes him special. One loss (against the best and fastest college football team I ever saw) in three seasons, and zero in high school.

"If our goal was for Trevor to win the Heisman, he'd be leading the (Fields, get it:) right now,” Swinney said.. “Our goal is to win. The best player in the country is Trevor Lawrence. He doesn't need to win the Heisman for that to be the case. Most logical people know that.”

Rated 1st in 2021 NFL Draft Player Ratings. “One of the best decision makers I have ever seen. He can make all the throws and makes plays when it matters the most. Nothing rattles him in the pocket, until the LSU Champ Game. He is so good at bouncing off a hit. Then completing the pass. Reads the Safety like a Pro. He is as tough as any QB in college football.” Read More: Free On Amazon Prime

-TWO

Justin Fields- 6-3, 228, QB, Ohio State, Rs-Jr-Tr,

QB

01/2021: This seems to quickly becoming the mess point for this Draft. Do the Jets pass on Fields for Darnold? Would they be better off trading down and keeping Darnold as their starter? The Jets have a ton of needs. I’m just not sure they can double-dip on Top two or three QBs? I mean Darold was the 3rd pick three years ago. It is like proclaiming, “we suck at our job and have no idea what we are doing! So trust us?!?” I’m just sure they can move away from Darnold for anyone but Lawrence, who is an all time guy. But damn, 37 interceptions in three seasons is a good reason. He has Though his INTs have gone down every season. Though he has thrown only 8 TDs vs, 9 TDs with one game left. That sucks. I change my mind. The Jets cannot pass on Fields here.

Fields improved this season at noticeable clip. Which is impressive if you watch him in 2020. People seem down on him because of his performance against Indy. It makes me wonder if they watched the game? I loved what he did against Indiana. One problem with Fields is that he plays on the most talented team in the FBS. So how much is him, and how much is the team? He mostly surfed through games on the wave of the Ohio State talent.

That didn’t happen against Indy. OSU didn’t look like the undisputed most talented team in that Game. Fields struggled. But he won. He sucked early in the 1st half. Then pulled it together to take the lead at Halftime. Then Indy came back, with help from Fields. Then Fields got it back mentally and won. He showed he could win ugly. He could fight and claw out a victory. He threw three INTs, and still won the game. Undisputed second best QB in this Draft, after the Indy game.

"It was throwing (instead of running) believe or not? That he came in as a dual-threat quarterback.” Urban Meyer said. “He was a runner that threw very well. Now, he is a quarterback that just happens to be Braxton Miller fast (and) is as electric of a runner as Braxton was.

"You have a Braxton Miller athlete that throws like a Dwayne Haskins. And if that's possible, you're talking about arguably… I know Trevor Lawrence is there and Kyle Pitts from Florida, who I personally think is the best non-quarterback player in America, you're talking about the best player in America. If he can actually do what I'm hearing he can do, there's no stopping this guy.”

Rated 2nd in 2021 NFL Draft Player Ratings. “Screw the rating! If Lawrence and Fields declare for the Draft, Fields will be the second player taken in 2021. You can rate him as the 50th best player if you want, but if he declares he is only going second to Lawrence. Rare competitor. Finds a way to win. Shows well in the clutch. Excellent size. Looks the part. Great stumbler with great run vision, speed and power.” Read More: Free On Amazon Prime.

THREE

Zach Wilson- 6-3, 211? QB, BYU, #1

QB

01/2021: Wilson will be the third QB taken. He is a freak onto himself. A little small. A little wild. A little bit of a small school player (though BYU puts guys in the NFL).  I would say he is better when things break down, but he is excellent when he has a clean pocket and can throw in rhythm. He is spectacular using his feet to get time to throw or yards running. The best since Mahomes.

Elite arm. Quick thrower. Great throwing all over the field on the move. Makes throws on the move that makes you wonder how the hell he saw his receiver. Uses his legs to get time to throw and not just take off. Runs around like a chicken with his head cutoff too much. But then throws a wacky beautiful bomb on the move with incredible accuracy. He is a freak.

He has some negatives. Not the biggest guy. Plays on a lower level. When he played against the best Defense he faced in his career, Costal Carolina, he struggled. He fought like heck, but it looked like they beat him down at the end of the game. But… he kept coming back at them. And after looking beaten, he almost scored the TD that would have tied the game.

Notes From 4th Quarter Costal Carolina Game: Terrific athlete with suddenness bursting forward. When he sees it, he fires a bullet over the middle. He can find his 3rd option off the play action. Great vision to see all over the field. Likes to throw to guys who it doesn’t look like he is looking at or can see. He can throw the fast ball 40 yards down field in the clutch. He is an impressive thrower in the clutch. Smart enough to throw to the uncovered WR. Impressive on two-minute drill. He came within two yards of beating Coastal Carolina after they beat the crap out of him and it looked like he was losing it a little to the beating they were giving him.

Unofficial Biol: Wilson accounted for five touchdowns (two passing, three rushing) to lead BYU over previously unbeaten Louisiana Tech, 45-14, on Saturday.  Wilson set a school record for completion percentage (with a minimum of 20 or 25 attempts) completing  24 of 26 passes (92.3 percent) for 325 yards and two touchdowns, while rushing for 43 yards and a career-high three scores. He already owns BYU's best completion percentage for a 15-attempt minimum with his perfect 18 for 18 game in 2018 vs. Western Michigan.

The five-touchdown outing was the first of Wilson's college career. He also went for 300-plus passing yards in back-to-back games for the first time in his career after 392 last week. It was the first time a BYU quarterback had back-to-back 300-yard games since Tanner Mangum did it in 2015 against UConn and East Carolina. Wilson also became the first BYU quarterback to have a pass efficiency rating of 200+ in three consecutive games (222.7, 231.6, 206.00) .

On the season, Wilson leads the nation in completion percentage (84.5), rates No. 2 in yards per attempt (13.37) and pass efficiency (221.85), and is No. 3 overall in points responsible for (pass + rush, 66).”

FOUR

*Penei Sewell- 6-6, 325, OLT, Oregon,

OLT

01/2021: The best OLT to come out in a while. Stunning athlete moving backwards. Great feet and hands. Balanced. Plays and stays low. Elite natural athlete.

Very light on his feet.

“It’s the way he plays the game man. The way he is physical. The way he is relentless. The way he chases defenders, chases the ball and gets down the field, is involved in getting the team emotionally charged up and fired up before games. This guy carries a lot now. I’ll tell you he made his impact everlasting,” Oregon HC Cristobal said. “He elevated the standard of performance. In terms of the way he plays the game, the way he gets after it in terms of the physicality, knocking people back, unlocking hips, getting hands on people. The conference is very happy to see him go. Let’s just say that.”

Rated 4th in 2021 NFL Draft Player Ratings. “Best Left Tackle in this Draft. He was the best OL last season and will be the best OL in the FBS this season. He’s my guy. He won the Outland trophy as the best OL in the FBS last season over Andrew Thomas, Jedrick Willis, Mekhi Becton, Tristan Wirfs, Austin Jackson, and Cesar Ruiz.

“Freak Athlete. Fast, quick and agile in ways that up until now I didn’t see in top prospects moving forward. They threw a pass to him against Utah and he caught it. Then he cut back to make the first guy miss. Astonishing athlete. He stays and plays so low he looks like a smaller guy on Tape.”  Read More: Free On Amazon Prime.

Notes To KnowFirst Polynesian, first sophomore offensive lineman and first Duck to win the Outland Trophy. Joined LaMichael James (2010) and Marcus Mariota (2014) as the only Oregon players to be unanimous first-team All-Americans. Finished sophomore campaign as the top-graded offensive lineman in PFF history (since 2014). Oregon is 17-3 over the last two seasons when he’s in the starting lineup. Has allowed just one sack over 1,376 snaps the last two seasons.

FIVE

**Trey Lance- 6-3, 221, QB, NDSU, Rs-Soph, #5

QB

01/2021: Trey is very inexperienced on a lower level. “I think his knowledge of football is exceptional. I think he’s only going to get better,” NDSU QB coach Hedberg said. “But he knows football. I would describe him as a football junkie. He loves to be around it and he likes to talk football.” His claim to fame started by not throwing an INT in his RS-Freshman year.

Which was an incredible feat. “He didn’t throw a pick all year,” Hedberg said. “I think that was one of the big things. I think that tells you something right there. That he’s making good decisions. He’s only 20 years old. He’s a young 20. He’s got a lot of years ahead of him to get better.” Then he threw a pick in 2020 in there one game season.

He also had his first fumble in college in that game as well. “Two things that I think are really important in that regard is being under center and being in a huddle," Hedberg said. “Being in a huddle is really, really an important factor in the NFL and being able to verbalize plays in the huddle. A lot of these quarterbacks in college right now, they’re in no-huddle situations. They never verbalize a play and they have to do that in the NFL.” He has declared for the Draft.

He did go under center at North Dakota. He has some of the best tools in this Draft. He reminds me of Mahomes in the pocket. He put up the most impress stat I ever saw from a QB in 2019: 28 TDs and 0 INTs. I have never seen, heard, or whispered about a QB who didn’t throw an INT for an entire season. He will be the 3rd pick in this Draft (or 10th overall like Mahomes;).

Rated 66th in the Guys I Just Don’t See Declaring section 2021 NFL Draft Player Ratings. “Very young smaller-school QB, who I just don’t believe he could possibly declare for this year’s Draft. He will be a Redshirt-Sophomore this season, with no season, and is not ready for the NFL…

“He can read his first option and get to his 2nd option quick. Mostly a one or two read and throw, dump off or take off dude. He will need a couple of years to develop his eyes and reads. He will throw into the double team when it is his first option. Snaps forward to run quick when the first option outside is shut down. Still needs some work on the decision making.”  Read More: Free On Amazon Prime.

20220-21 Season (Sophomore): Played in NDSU's only game of the fall against Central Arkansas on Oct. 3 before announcing Oct. 6 his intention to pursue an NFL career...Projected by draft experts as a first-round pick in the 2021 NFL draft...Played in front of 26 NFL scouts from 20 clubs in the Central Arkansas game...Accounted for four touchdowns in the 39-28 victory, NDSU's 38th straight win...Rushed 15 times for 143 yards and two TDs...Went 15 of 30 passing for 149 yards and two scores while completing passes to nine different receivers...Threw his first and only career interception after 307 consecutive attempts without a pick...Finished his collegiate career with a 17-0 record as a starting quarterback...Named to the preseason watch list for the Manning Award, presented annually to the top quarterback in college football.

- SIX

*Patrick Surtain- 6-2, 202, CB, Alabama, #2

CB

01/2021: Apparently, I think Surtain is the best defender in this Draft. Who knew? Perfect technique. Rarely if ever out of position. Roadrunner fast. Glides down the field in coverage effortlessly. He is a strong dude. When he hits guys they go the other way.

“Patrick has done a really, really good job for us this year/ He’s got a maturity about him that’s beyond his years, and he’s been a really, really consistent player,” Saban said. “He’s bright, he’s smart, he’s got very good football intuition. He understands what you’re trying to get done and what you’re trying to do and goes out there and executes it fairly well, especially for his experience and his age.”

When he is focused and locked on in Press, he near impossible to beat. There are not a lot of guy who can run past him outside. He will give up one pass on the Jerk route outside. He'll give up the comeback, but flashes forward and jams the WR out of bounds short of the marker.

“You know, we sort of brought him along in the first couple games, we just played him about half the time, and then he became a starter, and he’s just done a really good job, and he’s a phenomenal person,” Saban said. “Really never been in my office since he’s been there for not doing what he’s supposed to do. He’s really conscientious, good person, cares about other people, cares about his teammates, and is very conscientious in his work. I think all those characteristics have helped him to be able to play early on and play very effectively.”

Too often in equal or better position to make a play on the ball than the WR. Great job readding the WR’s eyes, and leaping up, doing a 180, and knocking the pass down as calm as a cheetah eating a chicken.  He is just glue on the WR. It is amazing how he can slap the ball down better than the WR.

Rated 9th in 2021 NFL Draft Player Ratings. “Long tall CB with great smarts and instincts. He doesn’t give up much. I mean, WRs can struggle to just get off the line. He doesn’t give up anything. Knows how to cut off the WR. Knows how to trap him on the line.”  Read More: Free On Amazon Prime.

2nd Choice: Micah Parsons LB Penn ST.

Junior (2020)A lockdown corner for the Alabama defense and one of the top defenders in the nation ... worked in every game during his time at UA, including 33 consecutive starts ... broken up six passes and totaled 27 tackles, including two for loss (-6 yards) as a junior ... added two quarterback hurries, a fumble recovery and a pick-six from 25 yards out ... earned First Team Preseason All-America recognition from ESPN.com ... tabbed a second-team honoree by the Associated Press, The Sporting News, USA Today and Walter Camp ... earned a spot on the Jim Thorpe Award Watch List, an honor presented to the nation's top defensive back ... named to the Bednarik Award Watch List ... also selected to the Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List ... earned defensive player of the week honors from the Alabama coaching staff for his play against Ole Miss, Georgia, Mississippi State and Auburn.

SEVEN

**Gregory Rousseau-6-7, 265, Edge, Miami, RS-Soph, #15

QB

01/2021: Rousseau is a One Year Wonder. However, he was the best D-linemen not Drafted in 2020. Long tall athlete in the Jason Taylor mode, who terrorized the Patriots for what seemed like decades. If you don’t want him? I’ll take him.

“It’s real tough just not being around those dudes because we all love each other so much. We had that bond that we built with each other throughout the year, so it’s been tough, but we’ve been holding each other accountable through Zoom workouts, group chats to make sure we’re sending in our workouts,” Rousseau said. "Everybody just knows each other’s working. We’re all holding each other accountable and that, when we get back, we’re all ready to go on the field and compete. We don’t know when that’s going to be, but we’re just staying ready.”

Great long arms and leverage. Great rusher inside and outside. They will line him up on the OC and can terrorize the QB from there. He might go lower than expect, because he missed last season. But once teams start seeing him rush and hitting the QB from all over the Line, he could go higher than Seven. Passrushers become more and more valuable every year.

Rated 3rd in 2021 NFL Draft Player Ratings. “What a season he had last year. He was right up there in stats with Chase Young. Fast. Smooth, but fast. Nice long arms. Can use speed to power. Long, tall and thin. Likes to eye down the QB. Deceptively strong. Doesn’t need leverage to win. Rarely gets pushed back. Freakish base and power.

“Strong side D-end, which makes his Sack total all the more impressive. Virginia doubled him in the pass rush. Abuses the TE, when the ORT blocks inside. It’s kind-ah funny. Likes to grab the ORT’s arms as he reads the QB. He can get him moving backwards and shed him with a shove, when the QB takes off, and dive out and tackle the QB.”  Read More: Free On Amazon Prime.

2019 All-ACC, First Team. 2019 ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year. 2019 All-America, Second Team (FWAA). 2019 Freshman All-America (several outlets).

2019 (Redshirt Freshman): Had breakout season in first year as starter, seeing action in all 13 games and making seven starts…Selected to All-ACC First Team and named ACC Defensive Rookie of the Year, becoming only second Hurricane to earn honor and first since 2008…Named to All-America Second Team by Football Writers Association of America and selected Freshman All-America by several outlets…Led ACC in sacks (15.5) and tackles for loss (19.5), ranking second and ninth in FBS, respectively…Sack total tied second-highest single-season mark in program history…Saw action in season opener vs. Florida (Aug. 24), finishing with two solo tackles (both for loss) and first sack of career…Two TFLs totaled 10 yards lost, including nine-yard sack…Delivered another strong outing at North Carolina (Sept. 7), finishing with 1.5 tackles for loss and second sack of career (four yards).

1-Year Wonder

 

EIGHT

*Eric Stokes- 6-1, 185, CB, Georgia, #27

CB

01/2021: He has the size, instinct, smarts and skills. But what make shim great is his speed. He has the speed that makes other NFL Corners jealous. He doesn't give much room for the QB to throw into. I love his press coverage. He can shadow the WR, read the pattern, and break on the ball like a WR.

"He's just smart. He's really bright," Kirby Smart said. "He understands leverage. He understands coverages. You tell him something once and he goes out to practice and does it. A lot of the guys need reps and reps. Stokes gets it in the meetings. He's very bright. He's very diligent."

Some think he is the best CB in the Draft. He likes to shuffle back sideways, where he can see the WR and QB. He is so smooth moving backwards at every angle. Smart and aware. Smooth and fast. Great hips and feet. Great eyes and instincts to step in front of the WR for the game changing INT. He is a game changer. He is so good running stride for stride with the WR to tip it. Good staying inphase.

Rated 8th in 2021 NFL Draft Player Ratings. “Very talented dude. He needs to show his talent and elite speed on the field more consistently as a starter, too maybe move up into the top ten. He can step in and help right away. Excellent special teams weapon who blocked a punt and returned it for a TD against Missouri.

He ran track for Georgia. "Another young player and he has an awesome blend of length and ball skills. I thought he played better last year, but he has the traits that teams will covet,” a scout said. “Love his alpha mentality and he firmly believes he belongs, but his impatience leaks over into his footwork and his aggressiveness at the line." His sprinter speed shows up in coverage running deep.

“Great slot WR. He will be moved outside in 2020. He can be unstoppable when he gets hot. Which didn’t happen a lot because he was Alabama’s 3rd or 4th WR. Great quick hands snapping up to snag the high fast ball. Effortless hands.”  Read More: Free On Amazon Prime.

COMMERCIAL BREAK

Manfred’s Argument.

By Tom Mahoney

Midway in our life’s journey, I went astray from the straight road and woke to find myself alone in a dark wood. How shall I say what wood that was! I never saw so drear, so rank, so arduous a wilderness! Its very memory gives shape to fear. Dante

 

Chapter One: Inferno.

I awake with my bones shaking from the dolorous fear of a false life in a dark foreboding dawn. I was dreaming of a dark forest that sapped all my hope and was filled with all my life’s faults. This was to be my final full day in prison. By all holy leopards, unholy lions, and the hungry she-wolf herself. Yes by Aries the lord of war, I shall never come back to this arduous dreary pit. Just as Jesus was reborn this weekend, so shall I find the true way tomorrow, on Good Friday. Thirteen of my thirty-five years have been spent in a prison of some sort or another, over one third of my life. Do you know what is the worst part of being in prison? It’s not the eternal sorrow of boredom and sloth. It’s not the fraudulent miserly life. It’s not the incontinence of freedom. It’s not the inability to see the moon, only envy it through dirty barred windows. It’s not the fact that

the only night sky available is the wracked stars cast through the frozen bars of my cage. It’s not that avarice is the one true virtue. It’s not the complete denial of any independent thought. It’s not the unconditional dedication to malice, wrath, and deceit. It’s not the entirely relentless unoriginal fabrications of conceit that own all souls who enter. It’s not the duality of guise that buys every face here, the look of pure hate or inconsolable fear. It’s not the flashbacks of freedoms foolishly flittered away. It’s not even the completely hopeless loss of all ladies. The worst part of prison is the malicious gluttony of waiting; the horrible unyielding dirge of waiting. Waiting to eat, to sleep, and to walk; Waiting for the attack marked upon every back; Waiting within these pitiless mocking walls. Waiting for any glimpse of kindness; waiting to see the freedom of a clean peach dawn; Waiting for a decent cup of coffee. Waiting for that look in a woman’s eye when you finally know you’ve stolen a scrap of her soul. Waiting for: "Da-Day", for release, for life, for liberty; It’s waiting to be human again. But for now I live on D-Block, or Dis-Block as we call it.

*DeVonta Smith- 6-1, 175, Alabama, #6

WR

Smith is having a great season. He stepped it up bigtime when Waddle went down. He has been the best player on the Offense when his team needs a big play. Unbelievable speed. He is such a great punt returner. When he sees a cutback lane, and really seems to put the pedal to the metal, he visibly pulls away from SEC special teamers. Might have the best open field speed of an WR in this Draft.

He just keeps on getting wide open, catches the pass, and runs away from defenders. While other WRs get more praise, get injured, and/or don’t produce nearly enough. He takes a beating and keeps on ticking. Tough. Fast. Relentless. Great route runner. Great hands. Great returner. Most underrated player in this Draft.

“I think that you try to move him around the best you can. It gets really hard to try to, especially in regular-down situations,  and I think in regular-down situations is where Smitty has made a lot of his explosive plays,” Saban said. “When I say regular-down situations, it's on play-action pass, it's on bubbles. It's not really 3rd-down situations. [On] 3rd down situations you have a little bit better chance when you know it's going to be a pass to try to take somebody out of the game."

Rated 14th in 2021 NFL Draft Player Ratings. “He reminds me of Antonio Brown. Only without the chaos. He has become a star. On a team with some elite WRs, he has taken over as the Best. He has shown a knack for catching TDs in the past two weeks: Mississippi and A&M. Phenomenal speed in pattern.

“Great slot WR. He will be moved outside in 2020. He can be unstoppable when he gets hot. Which didn’t happen a lot because he was Alabama’s 3rd or 4th WR. Great quick hands snapping up to snag the high fast ball. Effortless hands.”  Read More: Free On Amazon Prime.

*Kyle Pitts- 6-6, 239? TE, FLA, #11

TE

Pitts is not just a TE, just like Gronk is not just a TE. They are freaks of nature. Whoever drafts him can line him up outside at WR, and he would easily be their best WR. They can line him up at inline, and he’d be their best TE. He is a true freak of nature, like Gronk.

Pitts was a terrific weapon in 2019, but he developed this season into maybe the best and most versatile weapon in this Draft. He is not just the most dynamic TE in this Draft, he is also a terrific blocker who Florida schemed to run behind.

Pitts can play any position on the line on passing and running downs. He can line up outside like a Y-WR. Explosive in cuts in patterns. He’ll line up in the Slot on both sides, and run patterns like a WR. He’ll line up inline. He is not just Florida’s best TE, he is also their best WR. He is their best Deep threat. Explosive down the Seam. He is a much better player this year. He was an excellent TE last season, and he is one of the best I’ve ever seen this season. Phenomenal nose for the Endzone.

VS. Kentucky: Dude is back. After he was concussed by a massive cheap shot. He came back against Kentucky. As FLA was struggling, he suddenly caught the ball 21-yards down the Seam. Then ran another 35-yards for the 56-yard TD. Man! It was good to see him back. I was worried if he could get all the way back after that vicious concussion. And he sure did.

He consistently makes the first guy miss after the catch. Knows where the marker is and how to get there. After he came back from the Concussion, DBs are just grabbing him and holding on. He has vise grips for hands catching the ball. Trask threw him one from the five, and he extended his hands all the way away from his body, and clamped down on the ball for his second TD catch against Kentucky, to make a great comeback from concussion protocol.

Rated 38th in 2021 NFL Draft Player Ratings. “He’s a good route runner. Terrific hands. He can scoop it off the turf. Nice speed. He’s light for a TE, but he runs patterns with the speed of a WR. Good hands to reach back and snag the pass behind him.

“He has such smooth and easy hands. Explosive down the Seam. They’ll motion him across the field and throw the screen to him. Slippery running after the catch. Great athlete. He can get physical in pattern. Good Redzone target. Easy hands to snag the one-handed catch over the middle. Deadly over the middle.”  Read More: Free On Amazon Prime.

2020Started and played in six games this season. Caught eight passes for 170 yards and four touchdowns against Ole Miss... Caught four passes for 57 yards and two touchdowns against South Carolina.. Recorded a touchdown reception along with 47 yards receiving on five catches against Texas A&M... Tallied three touchdown receptions and brought in five catches for 99 yards against Kentucky.

Against Ole MissPitts tied a school record with four touchdown receptions, equaling the performances of Ike Hilliard (Sept. 16, 1995 against Tennessee) and Jack Jackson (Sept. 3, 1994 against New Mexico State)... Pitts became the third FBS tight end since the start of 1996 with 150-plus receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns in a game... Pitts’ 170 receiving yards were the highest single-game total by a Gator since Demarcus Robinson’s 216 yards against Kentucky (Sept. 13, 2014)... Pitts is the only Gators tight end since at least 1996 to have three receiving touchdowns in a game... Named Mackey Award TE of the Week.

*JaMarr Chase- 6-1, 200, WR, LSU, #1

CB

Chase has the look of a true Number One WR. He was the Biletnikoff winner, as the best WR in the FBS last season. Not: Henry Ruggs, Jerry Jeudy, CeeDee Lamb, Jalen Reagor, Justin Jefferson, or Brandon Aiyuk. It is easy to forget a lot of the guys who opted out, but Chase was the number one rated WR in this Draft before he opted out. Just watch the Tape.

Great easy hands. Burrow always threw it high to him and he always went up and got it. Great ball skills on the high fast balls that the DBs can’t make the great adjustment too. Makes it look easy. In 2019 he had over 200-yards receiving against: Mississippi and Vanderbilt. He had over 100-yards receiving against: A&M, Arkansas, Alabama, Auburn, Florida, and Texas. No other WR in history had seven 100-yard plus games against SEC teams in a single season. 

“He’s been phenomenal. Ja’Marr is an excellent young man. He’s very humble. He doesn’t require a lot of attention. He’s not in the media a lot, he just comes to work. He’s a leader,” Ed Orgeron said. “They’ve had player-only practices on Saturday morning when I come to work at 10 o’clock, they running through red zone routes on offense. They are on their own out there, and he’s the one that’s leading. He’s the one encouraging everybody. He’s in the weight room. I think he’s in the best shape has ever been. I can’t say enough good things about Ja’Marr Chase and what he’s done for LSU.”

Rated 6th in 2021 NFL Draft Player Ratings. “He is my guy. Best WR in this Draft. He was the best WR on an LSU team with Justin Jefferson, who I wanted the Pats to draft at 23. He won the Biletnikoff over Henry Ruggs, Jerry Jeudy, CeeDee Lamb, Jalen Reagor, and Brandon Aiyuk. He has smartly opted out and declared for the 2021 Draft.

“Great timing flying downfield behind tight coverage and soaring up over the CB and snagging it over his head. As the CB reaches up to catch it and Chase soars over him and snags it. Phenomenal athlete. Phenomenal ball skills. Phenomenal acrobat. Phenomenal aerial agility.”  Read More: Free On Amazon Prime.

*Micah Parsons- 6-3, 245, OLB, Penn ST- #11

LB

Parsons is a great difference maker in run defense and in pass defense. He can play ILB, OLB, and Edgerusher. They can move him all around the defense and have him attack forward. He makes impacts in the run and passing game. I really like his Tape. Plus, Penn State Linebackers have a knack for succeeding in the NFL.

“We had great conversations with Micah and both his mom and dad,” Penn ST HC James Franklin said. “I think there was a legitimate possibility for [him returning] happening. But as we continued to talk and continued to work with it, the timing of it made it challenging. That won’t be happening. We understand the decision and, just like we were on the front end, [we are] supportive of the decision.”

Senior (2020)Pro Football Focus Big Ten Team of the Week first team following the Purdue game (10/5). Named to the Pro Football Focus Big Ten Team of the Week second team following his performance vs. Pitt (9/14). Preseason: Tabbed to the preseason Bronko Nagurski Trophy watch list.

Rated 5th in 2021 NFL Draft Player Ratings. “He is so quick blitzing through the line to get to the ball carrier in the backfield, including the WR on the Reverse, that is it difficult to believe even after you just watched it. Elite mover. Makes plays in coverage 20 to 30 yards downfield. Best pure athlete in the Draft.

“Fast, furious, and focused. When he reads it right, he gets there quicker than a Dragon can inhale. Smart. Reads it right consistently. So fast. It is incredible. I don’t believe in drafting LBs in the 1st anymore. But I would take him in the Top ten.”  Read More: Free On Amazon Prime.

“Strong side D-end, which makes his Sack total all the more impressive. Virginia doubled him in the pass rush. Abuses the TE, when the ORT blocks inside. It’s kind-ah funny.

*Alex Leatherwood- 6-6, 312, OLT, Alabama, #70

OLT

They need an OLT. I think Leatherwood is the 2nd best in this Draft. He is also bust proof, as he has played ORG and ORT, and can likely step in and play every O-line position except Center. Great feet and balance moving backwards. He just kept better, every season and every game. He only gave up 2 Sacks this season. That’s incredible.

“I think Alex probably does as much as anybody from the example that he sets, how he competes, how he plays. He’s a little bit of a quiet guy but certainly leads by example and has done a really, really good job of that all year long, on and off the field,” Saban said. “I think he’s demonstrated that the team is really important to him. The players on the team are important to him. He’s really matured nicely and played very consistently for us. But I think the big thing is he leads by example and really sets a good example for the other players.”

Rated 10th in 2021 NFL Draft Player Ratings. “He has long arms and plays at arm’s length very well. He was the best Left Tackle in the SEC (in 2019). He faced the best and fastest rushers in the SEC and he only gave up 2 sacks and 3 hurries last season.

“He played some OLT in 2017. He played Right Guard in 2018 and moved back to OLT last season and was the best OLT in the SEC. I thought he was the best Tackle on the Alabama team last season (2019) that had 1st Round pick Jedrick Wills at Right Tackle.”

Senior (2020)Elected to return for his senior season, passing up the NFL Draft ... arguably the best left tackle in college football ... has seen time in 43 career games with 36 consecutive starts dating back to 2018 ... selected as a First Team Preseason All-American by four outlets (Associated Press, ESPN.com, The Sporting News, USA Today) ... tabbed as a second-team honoree by Walter Camp ... leading candidate for the Outland Trophy … averaged an overall blocking grade of 90.4 by the Alabama coaching staff and 99.5 on assignments (tied for the team lead) … anchor of an Alabama offensive line that blocks for the nation’s No. 1 scoring offense (48.5 ppg), No. 1 pass efficiency offense (202.8), No. 4 passing offense (358.1 ypg) and No. 33 rushing attack (177.5 ypg) among teams who have played more than four games … the Alabama front has surrendered just six sacks (according to PFF) while quarterback Mac Jones has been on the field and just 13 for the season on 268 dropbacks to rank 20th nationally (1.62 sacks per game among teams who played more than four games) … Leatherwood leads an offensive front that has opened holes for 4.8 yards per carry with 51 runs of 10 or more yards this season, which is among the national leaders … the Tide has scored 24 rushing touchdowns in eight games to rank eighth nationally … Leatherwood has played 472 snaps during the 2020 season and has allowed only two sacks, missed only two assignments and committed just one penalty … surrendered just three quarterback hurries and three pressures … earned offensive player of the week honors from the Alabama coaching staff following a win over No. 3 Georgia.

*Zaven Collins- 6-4, 260, Tulsa, R #23

OLB

Incredible on field speed to the ball. He can line up on the Weakside at OLB, and flash all the way across the field and tackle the RB for a loss on an off tackle run to Strongside. He makes plays that you just don’t see other guys make. Great blitzer. He has that knack for hitting the quarterback. He can make plays in the passing game.

“I think that you try to move him around the best you can. It gets really hard to try to, especially in regular-down situations,  and I think in regular-down situations is where Smitty has made a lot of his explosive plays,” Saban said. “When I say regular-down situations, it's on play-action pass, it's on bubbles. It's not really 3rd-down situations. [On] 3rd down situations you have a little bit better chance when you know it's going to be a pass to try to take somebody out of the game."

He will line up at ILB as well. Great run stuffer in the middle at ILB. He can cover the TE. Great athlete. Elite contact balance, to shed and tackle. Great motor. Flows to the ball better than any LB in this Draft. Can play on the Edge a little. Difference maker on defense. Big and strong. Built to be an All-Pro OLB. Great read and react. Plays off contact consistently.

When you watch him, he doesn’t look like he can possibly be 260-pounds. Elite mover. Disciplined. Tough. Physical. Elite mover for a 250-pound guy. Fun to watch. I think he can play Edgerusher on some passing downs. He can clearly zone and cover the middle at ILB. Plus, he is a great blitzer up the gut.

Rated 14th in 2021 NFL Draft Player Ratings. “He reminds me of Antonio Brown. Only without the chaos. He has become a star. On a team with some elite WRs, he has taken over as the Best. He has shown a knack for catching TDs in the past two weeks: Mississippi and A&M. Phenomenal speed in pattern.

“Great slot WR. He will be moved outside in 2020. He can be unstoppable when he gets hot. Which didn’t happen a lot because he was Alabama’s 3rd or 4th WR. Great quick hands snapping up to snag the high fast ball. Effortless hands.”  Read More: Free On Amazon Prime.

*Mac Jones- 6-3, 214, QB, Alabama, Rs-Jr, #10

QB

Reach-reach-reach, I know. But the Pats have to get a QB. They are DES-PER-ATE! If they don’t get in on the top four QBs? They are looking at Jones or Trask in the 2nd. I loved-loved-loved Trask this season, but he completely fell apart in the last three games of the season. He was, maybe, the best QB this season in the first nine games with 3 INTs. Then he threw 5 INTS! In the last three games. Terrifying terrible in his final game against Oklahoma. Granted, all his seniors difference makers abandoned him in the Bowl Game for the Draft, which still keeps him as an option for the Pats on Day Two.

However, you can say what you want about Mac Jones, one-year wonder, not an elite arm, outta nowhere, a bit of a dud personality. But he just kept getting better every game. He also gets better as the game goes along. He is better in the 4th, which I learned watching Brady, that has to be the number one trait of an NFL QB.

Plus, his dud personality can be seen as a plus. Nothing bothers him. His face looks calm and bored in the 1st quarter when he’s up two TDs, and when he is down a TD late in the 4th. That is what you want in a QB. A guy who never seemed to be affected, or even seems to notice, the pressure. He just completes pass after pass.

His biggest negative is that he struggles a little throwing to his left. His most inaccurate passes are always short or intermediate to his left. So he is an overly right handed QB. However, one of his best traits are his great movement skills in the pocket. He is not a great scrambler. But he is absolutely great moving around in the pocket, especially to his right, to give time to his great WRs time to get open over the top.

He throws as great a deep ball to Smith and Waddle, escaping pressure scrambling to his right for extra time. Elite accuracy throwing deep on those throws. He needs great WRs to help him. But he puts it in their hands with top accuracy. He can progress across the field to his 4th or 5th option. Steady. Calm, cool, and collected in all kinds of pressure.

He also put up some incredible stats this seasons.  I think he can develop into a winning QB in the NFL. What else is there, really?

*Caleb Farley- 6-2, 207, V-Tech, #3

CB

Farley has great Tape. I only had Wade ahead of him, because he improved in 2020 and he can play FS. Wade is a little tougher and stronger, but Farley has that speed and twitch that makes CBs elite. He has been clocked in the Forty at 4.35. Said to have ran 24 Miles Per Hour, and you can’t teach speed.

Great snap in his hips. Instant hips turning outside to run with the QB. Elite physical talent. Six INTs in his two, Freshman and Sophomore, seasons at V-Tech. He also had 19 PBUs, including 12 last season. He plays Off, low and mean, like he is in Press. Boundary Corner in the V-Tech’s legendary system.

“People say I could have waited till the NCAA canceled the season and then just not play. Or play a few games and then announce I was opting out,” Caleb Farley said in a written statement. “But I couldn’t do that. I knew what I had to do. So last Monday night, I went to Coach Fuente’s office. I was so nervous. I just took a deep breath and told him my decision. He tried to talk me out of it. But I was firm. What I will always respect about Coach Fuente is, he said he loved me and will always be a Caleb Farley fan. That meant the world to me.”

Rated 18th in 2021 NFL Draft Player Ratings. “Okay, so I’m a sucker for Virginia Tech CBs. All-American Cornerback. Smooth and quick feet moving laterally inside. Balanced and confident. He decided to sit out this season due to Covid. He has the most sudden hips I’ve seen in a while. He will step up and play Finesse Press.

“Nice snap in his hips. Instant hips turning back to run with the WR deep downfield. He takes position deep as he looks back at the ball and intercepts it like he is a WR. I like him best in finesse Press. Number One Corner who makes the QB look to the other side. Slows WR’s release with his great feet, position, and aggression.”

And One.

By Tom Mahoney

Did you ever wake up in the dark early morning and felt that everything seemed somehow different? As though you were in another dimension, or still in a nightmare, but you knew you were awake. You could feel that the world had altered, or rather you knew you were no longer on the earth you knew, but didn’t know why, how, or where? I woke like that once. It felt as though something had kidnapped me from reality I had existed in all my short life. I had to find my way free of the force that had captured me, and find my way back home. I think?

     It was in the spring just before my seventeenth birthday. I was waiting for my grandfather to die. I woke up in an ICU antechamber in the now deceased Burbank Hospital, where they stuffed gamily members who had tried to stay awake all night but couldn’t. I remember feeling like I was stuck in mud. Though it was lethally warm spring day, there was a cold rigid wind blowing through the halls that I had never felt before. At about two in the morning they brought me into this little lifeless side room where I had descended into the sleep of the dead on this extinct tan plastic 70’s couch. As I rose, my face stuck to the departed fabric as though it had decayed into the left side of my face. The air seemed thin and diseased. I remember sitting up on the obsolete couch for a while, rubbing the departed skin off my left cheek and face. I was trying to clear my vision and

remove the horrid remnants of vinyl off my face.

Then I shivered, as another flap of frozen wind seemed to cover me, like dank dead dirt. I stood up and looked around at the rotting relic of a room. Everything in this desolate chamber was tan or beige in some way. Decomposing off-white wallpaper, with vertical putrefied tan and deteriorating brown lines of different widths, laid on the walls. A wavy picture of a wheat field blowing in the wind, with a dull soiled gold frame around it that made it look soil colored, hung lifeless on the wall. A worm colored husk of a coffee table that looked like a casket was buried in the corner. Even the ancient shades on the dirt brown lamps seemed to emit a taupe light. However, the thing I remember the most was the dead silence of the room, for some reason the air seemed completely still: not a sound, not a sign of life, not even the feeling of my own heartbeat and breathing.
