2016 NFL Draft Part 4: Wonder’s Sleeper

Some people have Wonder’s sleeper as the 13th rated QB in the NFL Draft.  NFL.com has this QB as the 9th best of a weak class.  But Wonder thinks the Giants can take this QB in Round 2 (or Round 3 if they think he can fall to that spot) if he passes the interview and […]

Giants owner says NFL could eventually eliminate kickoff

When the NFL moved the kickoff from the 30 to the 35-yard line in 2012, there was talk that the kickoff could be eliminated completely at some point in an attempt to make the game safer.

2016 NFL Draft Part 3- More Player Evaluations

Generally speaking, our Draft analyst Wonder believes that 2016 is a weak class.  That starts with his belief that all 3 QBs who are featured prominently in Round 1 discussions are not Round 1 quality.  Jared Goff, Carson Wentz and Paxton Lynch are not Eli Manning, Phillip Rivers and Ben Roethlisberger, whether they get drafted […]

2016 NFL Draft Part 2- Floors and Ceilings

When our draft analyst, Wonder, looks at a college prospect, he sees a relief map. He projects where a player will get to in the Pros but he also gets a sense of their ceiling and floor. Ceiling is potential upside. Floor is worst case. You’ve seen him at times label a player feast or […]

Just Say No to Running Back in Round 1

We’ve gone through this before. Let’s go through it again. The 2016 RB flavor of the NFL Draft is Ezekiel Elliott. Last year it was ACL-injured Todd Gurley. No. I don’t care. Each year it’s the next Jim Brown, Barry Sanders and Adrian Peterson wrapped into one. I don’t care if you tell me in […]

Odell Beckham, Josh Norman go at it on Twitter

The Odell Beckham-Josh Norman feud may never end. It started when the two players squared off back in December, and beat the hell out of one another. Beckham put a cheap shot on Norman with his helmet, and the Panthers cornerback clearly hasn’t forgotten. Norman was asked about Beckham on ESPN’s SportsNation, and downplayed the […]

Hope springs eternal for NFL teams who have landed big-ticket free agents this week. Some teams have improved their rosters and have a lot to look forward to in 2016.
