NFL Draft 2018 – QBs, Josh Rosen and Sam Darnold Declare for NFL

NFL Draft 2018 – QBs, Josh Rosen and Sam Darnold Declare for NFL

The highly awaited news that two of the premier prospects for the NFL Draft 2018, QBs Josh Rosen and Sam Darnold announced they will turn pro this week. Both underclassmen have #1 overall potential and the two gunslingers could project as the top two overall selections in this class. Each prospect was expected to declare despite having periods of struggle through the 2017 season. Rosen is a true junior and was expected to move on to the NFL after Bruin HC Jim Mora was fired late during the 2017 season. Darnold is a redshirt sophomore and a blue chip prospect who went through erratic periods in 2017, from big NFL throws to numerous mistakes and turnovers. He was considered to be on the fence especially after a disappointing performance vs Ohio St in the recent Trojan Cotton Bowl loss.

Nevertheless, Rosen and Darnold have been in our top three overall prospects the entire 2017 season. Only Penn St. running back Saquon Barkley has surpassed them on our value boards. Barkley was our #1 overall prospect in our December Newsletter. In 2017, Rosen had 283 completions of 452 passes for 62.6% for 3756 yards for 26 TDs and 10 interceptions. He was sacked 26 times. In 2017 Darnold completed 303 of 480 passes for 63.1% for 4143 yards, 26 TDs and 13 interceptions. He was sacked 29 times and under pressure consistently during the 2017 season behind a young line.

Both Rosen and Darnold will begin rigorous postseason workout schedules. Neither prospect will perform at All-star games. Their postseason will be reduced to just the NFL Combine and their school Pro Days in March. They will both probably have private workouts for different clubs and coaches this spring. Underclassmen have until Monday Jan 15th to declare for the NFL Draft 2018.

The 2017 Draft Insiders’ First-Team America Team – 27th Annual All-American Team

2017 Draft Insiders' Football Championship Subdivision All-America Team

Two-time AFCA All-American QB Jeremiah Briscoe of Sam Houston St, Western Illinois linebacker Brett Taylor and Monmouth University safety Mike Basile headline the 2017 Draft Insiders’ Football Championship Subdivision Coaches’ All-America Team announced by Frank Coyle. All-Americans Briscoe and Basile are two-time first team honorees.

Photo - QB Jeremiah Briscoe - Sam Houston St

Briscoe, a top-three finalist for the Walter Payton Award, has thrown for a SHSU single-season record 5,003 yards which leads the nation. He also leads the nation in passing yards per game (357.4) and touchdown passes (45). Basile has been a stalwart at safety for the Hawks since his freshman season. He was instrumental in their first Top 25 rankings this season that earned a playoff berth. He is a complete safety who has shown outstanding special teams skills over his long career. Taylor, a finalist for the Buck Buchanan Award, led the nation with 162 tackles, 13.5 stops per game and 96 assisted tackles. He also added 13 tackles for a loss, 1.5 sacks, four breakups, two forced fumbles and one quarterback hurry.

Draft Insiders’ Frank Coyle has selected an All-America team since 1992. He has specialized in nationwide scouting with a huge emphasis on the FCS level. He has been instrumental in finding QB Joe Flacco as a #1 pick and recommended him to the Senior Bowl. Flacco has called to the Mobile, Al classic after accepting an offer from the East-West Shrine game. Just two years ago, Coyle touted QB Carson Wentz as a premier talent and a first round prospect prior to the Senior Bowl. The 2016 Draft Insiders’ Yearbook ranked Wentz as the #1 QB prospect in the nation.

Bradley Chubb picked up a few pieces for his trophy case this week when he won both the Bronko Nagurski Award, which is given to the nation’s top defensive player and the Ted Hendricks awards. Chubb also won ACC defensive player of the year honors this season.

This is the first of what could be multiple accolades this week: he is also a finalist for the Chuck Bednarik Award, which also goes the nation’s most outstanding defensive player. The winner of that award will be announced on Dec. 7 during the annual college football awards ceremony, which is televised by ESPN.

The edge rusher was named the recipient of the 2017 Ted Hendricks Award, given annually to the top defensive end in the nation.

An obvious choice -- especially given the fact that he won the Nagurski Trophy. Chubb joins Terrell Suggs (2002), Elvis Dumervil (2005), Brian Orakpo (2008), Da'Quon Bowers (2010) and Jonathan Allen (2016) as the only players to win both awards.

Chubb turned in a season for the ages in 2017. He led the ACC in sacks (10), ranked second in the country in tackles for loss (26) and he became the first N.C. State player to win the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, the award given to the country’s top defensive player.

Chubb is an oversized tweener at 6-4 and 275 pounds who will appeal to both NFL fronts and highly coveted by all 32 teams in the NFL Draft 2018.
