NFL Combine 2019 – QB Dwayne Haskins & DE Nick Bosa Workout

NFL Combine 2019 – QBs Dwayne Haskins, Drew Lock & Kyler Murray & DE Nick Bosa Commit to Workout

QBs Dwayne Haskins and Drew Lock have announced they will throw at the NFL Combine. They are expected to be two of the top prospects with Haskins currently ranked the #1 QB. Many athletes split events between the NFL Combine and their school Pro Days which makes the Pro Day circuit vital to the final part of the scouting process.

DE/LB Nick Bosa of Ohio St. is the projected #1 overall selection. He sat out his final season from a September 2018 leg injury. He is healthy now and is expected to participate in all the events on Sunday – March 3rd. He is capable of an impressive workout which could solidify the first overall selection with a return to his top athleticism. He is expected to test out well this weekend.

         Kyler Murray Commits to NFL Combine Workout
Former Oklahoma QB Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray was included on the official list of invitees for the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine. Murray has already declared for the draft and will workout at the NFL Combine. He will most likely have to pick between the NFL and MLB where he was first-round pick of the Oakland Athletics. Murray wants to become a first-round pick in this year’s NFL draft and needs to convince NFL brass about his intensions to play football over baseball. The A’s have already made a big push to convince Murray to pick baseball over football and they hoped he still will attend spring training. The reporting date for spring training actually began last week before the NFL Combine. Murray will have to go through the intense training program to earn a #1 draft selection in April. It begins this week.

Two sport athletes have had minimal success historically with virtually none playing QB in the NFL. That has never proven successful for any prospect with QB ambitions and any delay on committing to one sport beyond this winter could actually hurt his career potential in either sport.

The NFL released the list of 338 players who will attend the NFL Scouting Combine which gets underway in Indianapolis on February 26th. The list includes extensive players from the Power Five Conferences with 261 of the 338 invitations going to prospects from those schools.

Mississippi State DT Jeffery Simmons and Colorado State wide receiver Preston Williams were not invited to participate in the athletic events after personal conduct rules infractions. Simmons is considered an early first round prospect while Williams is graded as solid early middle round player. The NFL rescinded an invitation to Jaylon Ferguson of Louisiana Tech after his involvement in prior criminal charges due to violent assault. His pro day will be heavily attended with him considered a legitimate 2nd day selection.

A few prospects have begun to announce if they can workout or if they have a limited workout and restricted to just the medical and IQ testing plus the critical interview process. Safety Deionte Thompson had wrist surgery recently and will not workout at combine or his pro day. Runner Bryce Love had ACL surgery in December 2018 and will not workout while OT Jawaan Taylor will rehab a leg injury and hopes to make the Florida Pro Day scheduled for March 27th. He is a rising prospect with an excellent skill set for the NFL game.

2019 NFL Draft – Pro Day Schedule

2019 NFL Draft – Pro Day Schedule

On the eve of the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine, the Pro Day schedule was announced and begins the day after the week long combine in Indianapolis. The process for the 2019 NFL Draft continues up to the event on April 25th thru the 27th. Coaches, personal men and scouts turn their attention to the NFL Combine starting Tuesday Feb 26th thru March 4th with the pro day workouts starting the following week. The Pro Days are not as comprehensive as the NFL Combine, though they address the important events and update the vital medical information and rehab process. NFL teams provide key decision-makers to most of these events as the critical final part of the scouting process.

This year’s pro days are listed below by date. Some schools will book a 2nd Pro Day usually in April if they have injured players.

NFL Announces 2019 Compensatory Draft Choices

NFL Draft 2019 – Compensatory Picks

Super Bowl Contenders, the NE Patriots and LA Rams Each Get Two #3 picks

The NFL announced the 32 compensatory picks for the NFL Draft 2019. The league computes the compensatory equation according to unrestricted free agents signed vs those lost at equal dollars. If they match, that cancels out any compensation. Example: Giants signed LT Nate Solder, but lost center Wes Richburg. Those transactions cancelled out each other from the Giants perspective. The Patriots received a #3 pick because they did not sign a FA at equal dollars to their loss of Nate Solder.

This year the two Super Bowl contenders, the Patriots and Rams each get two #3 picks. New England, Washington and Arizona each have four overall selections. The Rams, Vikings and Bengals have three while the Falcons and Eagles have two compensatory picks.

QB Kyler Murray Announces Commitment to NFL over Major League Baseball

QB Kyler Murray Announces Commitment to NFL and Combine Training

Kyler Murray dispelled all concerns related to his dual-sport aspirations with a bold announcement on Twitter.

 Monday via Twitter, Kyler Murray committed to pursuing a career as an NFL quarterback.

“Moving forward, I am fully and firmly committing my life and time to becoming an NFL Quarterback.”

Murray was selected ninth overall by the Oakland Athletics in the 2018 MLB Draft, but was allowed to play his final season of football at Oklahoma. With the Sooners in his only season as a starter, he won the Heisman Trophy in 2018 following Baker Mayfield with back to back Oklahoma winners for the prestigious award. This success demanded him to reevaluate his future as a two sport athlete or which sports profession to select.

Kyler Murray would be the first athlete to be selected in the 1st round of the both the MLB and the NFL Drafts. Many consider him a first round selection. Draft Insiders‘ ranks him currently as a Top 50 Prospect entering the NFL Combine 2019.

Murray decided to walk away from his $4.33 million contract with the Athletics, which called for him to report to big-league camp at the end of February. He’ll have to return $1.29 million of the $1.5 million he received in a signing bonus from the Athletics in 2018. He will forfeit the remaining $3.16 million of his contract if he fails to continue his career and report to spring training camp later this month.

QB Kyler Murray Faces Important NFL Combine 2019 Decision

NFL Combine 2019 Announces Invitation List

QB Kyler Murray Faces Important NFL Combine Decision

   Frank Coyle – Head Scout

Former Oklahoma QB Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray was included on the official list of invitees for the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine. Murray has already declared for the NFL Draft 2019 and he will most likely have to pick between the NFL and MLB where he was first-round pick of the Oakland Athletics. Murray wants to become a first-round pick in this year’s NFL draft, but needs to accept the invitation and attend the combine. The A’s have already made a big push to convince Murray to pick baseball over football and they still expect him to attend spring training. The reporting date for spring training actually begins before the NFL Combine on Feb. 15. Murray is at the crossroads and will either miss critical time in spring training for the A’s or bypass the NFL Combine workout in early March which would create a major conflict of dates for any two sport participation. He is expected to announce a decision related to the NFL Combine soon, though he still insists he wants to play both sports. That has never proven successful for any prospect especially with QB ambitions and his delay beyond this winter could actually hurt his career potential in either sport.

The NFL released a list of 338 players who will attend the NFL Scouting Combine which gets underway in Indianapolis on February 26th. The list includes extensive players from the Power Five Conferences with 261 of the 338 invitations going to prospects from those schools.

 Mississippi State DT Jeffrey Simmons and Colorado State wide receiver Preston Williams were not invited to the event after personal conduct rules infractions. Simmons is considered an early first round prospect while Williams is graded as solid early middle round player.

NFL Draft 2019 – First Round Draft Order – Patriots Select Last #32

NFL Draft 2019 – First Round Draft Order – Patriots Select Last #32

The New England Patriots will select last in every round for the NFL Draft 2019, #32 after defeating the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 in Super Bowl XLIII. The first round draft order is posted below with the Arizona Cardinals holding the #1 overall selection and the Oakland Raiders holding three #1 draft choices as a result of two trades involving LB Khalil Mack and WR Amari Cooper.  

A teams’ opponent’s W-L record determined all tie situations. If teams are still tied, they will flip, though none are necessary this year. Playoff teams shuffled according to their postseason results that determined the final top 32 selections.

NFL teams look to both the veteran Free Agency period and the NFL Draft 2019 to improve their rosters. The salary cap is expected to go up again approximately $10-12 million and it will dictate the movement of many veteran players this offseason. The FA movement will have an impact on the premier draft selections.

Team tie-breaking procedure for the NFL Draft
If two or more clubs are tied in the selection order, the strength-of-schedule tie breaker is applied, subject to the following exceptions for playoff clubs:  The Super Bowl winner is last and the Super Bowl loser next-to-last. Any non-Super Bowl playoff club involved in a tie shall be assigned priority within its segment below that of non-playoff clubs and in the order that the playoff clubs exited from the playoffs. Within a tied segment a playoff club that loses in the Wild-Card game will have priority over a playoff club that loses in the Divisional playoff game that in turn will have priority over a club that loses in the Conference Championship game. If two tied clubs exited the playoffs in the same round, the tie is broken by strength of schedule. If any ties cannot be broken by strength of schedule, the divisional or conference tie breakers, when applicable, are applied. Any ties that still exist are broken by a coin flip.
