Senior Bowl Week - Premier All-Star Game for NFL Draft 2015

January 2015 Newsletter - Special Underclassmen Report - available Now

The Senior Bowl All-Star event has always showcased countless small college prospects that have propelled them to national attention during the practices and game. The Senior Bowl committee has always done a thorough nationwide evaluation of small college talent and extend approximately a dozen invitations annually for the Mobile all-star classic.

The practices and game are critical to the talent from the lower level as they square up with Division 1 prospects who have not only a bigger body of work but also against a broader higher level of competition.
The week practices and game can elevate small college talent like QB Joe Flacco from obscure D1AA players to first round draft choices.

This year’s classic lacks a top round selection from the lower level, but presents some interesting running backs, linebackers and defensive backs with NFL skills. Big backs, David Johnson and Tyler Varga have shown they belong in this group of premier talent. Linebackers, Lynden Trail and Zach Hodges could be the small college gems as they transition to playing up in the NFL after performing with their hand on the ground as collegians. They both appeal to the NFL defenses that play the 3-4 scheme and a week vs pro line prospects and the additional duties of lining up on the edge and playing in coverage will determine their level of development for pro play. Both Trail and Hodges have shown fine athleticism and should test out well at the NFL Combine that will be another critical part of the evaluation process especially for small college prospects. Draft Insiders’ will have extensive scouting reports on all the small college prospects in our annual Yearbook that consists of over 300 in-depth reports.

Currently, over 60 underclassmen have entered the NFL Draft 2015 with linebackers Shane Ray and Shaq Thompson declaring late Wednesday. Both are considered first round prospects. Ray is a classic DE/LB tweener with impact off the edge as a pass rusher. Thompson is the most versatile player in the draft with time on both sides of the ball. Despite his success as a running back, he will earn NFL starting time as a linebacker, most likely a Will backer in 4-3 scheme.

The NFL will wait to hear from a number of star players including Oregon prospects, QB Marcus Mariota, DL Arik Armstead and DeForest Buckner after the title game. Mariota is expected to declare and carries a top five grade in April.

Seminoles' QB Jameis Winston Declares for 2015 NFL Draft

WinstonNew.png

Florida St QB Jameis Winston will declare for the 2015 NFL Draft

Florida St QB Jameis Winston will declare for the 2015 NFL Draft. From a report from his father Antonor Winston, Jameis will enter the pro ranks and not wait until after the CFP title game to announce his decision.

Photo - QB Jameis Winston - Florida St

Winston is a redshirt sophomore and will forgo his final two seasons of eligibility with the Seminoles.
The 6’4”, 230 lb. Winston is ranked a minimum top-5 pick by DraftInsiders.com and
projects to teams like the Tampa Bay Bucs and Tennessee Titans who hold the top two overall selections.

Jan. 15 - Deadline for underclassmen to apply for early entry to NFL Draft
Jan. 18 - Deadline for underclassmen to withdraw application for early entry to NFL Draft

Winston had a 26-1 record as a starter with the lone defeat coming vs Oregon in the national semifinals. He won the 2013 Heisman Trophy and the final 2013 BCS championship. The Seminoles' hopes of a second straight national title were crushed on New Year's Day with a 59-20 loss to Oregon in the Rose Bowl. It was Winston's only defeat in two seasons as the team's starting quarterback.

Winston is also a talented baseball prospect drafted out of high school by the Texas Rangers. Winston said in the immediate aftermath of the Rose Bowl that he was "looking forward to next season and playing baseball" in the spring for the Seminoles. But a declaration for the draft is expected to end his baseball career. Clubs would be highly concerned about a QB prospect not working with coaches and trainers this spring with a focus on the NFL mini camps in May right after the NFL Draft 2015.

Winston will have critical interviews through the NFL Combine, Florida St pro day and individual NFL teams evaluation related to his multiple off the field issues. His maturity issues may be ultimate deciding factor by NFL clubs for any top five overall selection in the upcoming NFL Draft.
