NFL Comparison: Dallas Clark                     Rating 88

Athletic mobile junior flashed big play talent over his MWC career, earning first team honors in 2021. Two-time MWC honoree and John Mackey 2021 winner. Lined up as both an inline and flex performer over his four starting seasons. Fluid athlete with top athleticism to press the middle of the field and naturally run the seam. Agile and flexible to change directions or go up for the ball. Natural hands catcher with run after the catch ability that is just being tapped into in a number of formations. Fast developing receiver with huge upside as a vertical threat. Solid specimen and easy mover with some growth potential. He has improved significantly as a blocker. Quick athlete with the explosiveness off the line to get into a defender or his routes with the footwork and agility to be a very effective movement blocker with further technique work. Greatest asset is his developed playmaking ability. Early contribution as flex receiver and H-back with the receiving skills to become a difference maker. High grades for top overall development and receiving skills. Savvy route runner with very good instincts to read and adjust to coverage and sit in holes. Able to catch outside the frame with a nice receiving radius and huge hands (10 1/8”). Settles in the soft spots in zones to move the chains. Very dangerous on crossing routes with fine run after the catch ability and speed to break plays. Quick getting off the line and beats the jam to get a clean release. At the breakpoint, he separates well in coverage and creates a consistently reliable target. Tough in the shorter zones on crossing routes, hooks and underneath routes with good hands and the ability to adjust. Runs well and snatches the ball in a crowd. Difficult matchup in single coverage with a developed route tree. As blocker, he is quick on the snap with stocky athletic frame and good hand usage to get a surge at the point of attack. Needs development blocking, including a stronger punch with improved lower body power and footwork. In limited time inline, he graded out high as a blocker, relying more on toughness and athleticism than sound technique and functional strength. As a move blocker, gets into an opponent on 2nd level and shows quickness to sustain. On the move, shows the talent to seal and neutralize with the agility to reach backers, though needs technique and strength work.

The Numbers:   In 2021, he started 12 games and caught 90 passes for 1121 yards and 1 TD. Earned first team MWC and All-American honors. In 2020, he started every game and caught 22 passes for 330 yards, a 15-yard average and 4 TDs, earning 2nd team MWC honors.

Looked very good in the positional drills with the agility to adjust to the pass. Similar to former Colts’ Pro Bowler, Dallas Clark in size, play making ability, AA and developed receiving talent. Also, similar to George Kittle in many respects.

The Skinny:  Mobile sure handed prospect with very good athleticism to play in base and multiple sets with highly developed skills and LOD as a receiver. Quality addition with the athletic talent to give an offense an early playmaker. As a receiver, he has upside with soft hands, fine movement skills and good speed to stretch the seam. Versatile and marginal top 40 and rising prospect with the talent to surprise in the right offense. Emerging playmaker with skill set to be ideal for today’s pro-offenses.

NFL Announces 39 Compensatory Draft Choices

NFL Draft 2022

NFL Announces 39 Compensatory Draft Choices to 16 Clubs

​A total of 39 compensatory draft selections in the 2022 NFL Draft have been awarded to 16 teams, the NFL announced.

Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents (“CFA”) than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks.

The compensatory picks will be positioned within the third through seventh rounds based on the value of the compensatory free agents lost.

Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors. The formula was developed by the NFL management council. Not every free agent lost or signed by a club is covered by this formula. No club may receive more than four compensatory picks in any one year. If a club qualifies for more than four compensatory picks after offsetting each CFA lost by each CFA gained of an equal or higher value, the four highest remaining selections will be awarded to the club.

The Collective Bargaining Agreement limits the number of compensatory selections to the number of clubs then in the League (32). This year, one club, the Kansas City Chiefs, qualified for a compensatory selection under the net loss formula but will not receive that pick because the final numerical value of the CFA who was lost ranked 33rd among the final numerical values of all compensatory selections. Kansas City will receive a compensatory selection for one other CFA lost whose final numerical value ranked within the top 32.

In addition to the 32 compensatory selections awarded under the net loss formula, seven special compensatory selections were awarded to six clubs: the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens, New Orleans Saints, San Francisco 49ers (two special compensatory selections), Kansas City Chiefs, and Los Angeles Rams under a 2020 amendment to the League’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, which was agreed upon by the NFL and the NFLPA to promote equal employment opportunities and an inclusive workforce within NFL clubs. This initiative provides that the prior employer-club of a minority employee who has been hired by another club as its head coach or primary football executive (general manager) will receive compensation in the form of a special compensatory draft selection in the third round of each of the next two drafts, or in each of the next three drafts if two minority employees from the employer-club are hired for these positions by another club or clubs. Special compensatory selections are awarded in draft selection order after all other compensatory selections in round three and are denoted with an asterisk in the following table.

The following 2022 compensatory draft picks have been awarded for the 2022 NFL Draft, which will be held on April 28-30 in Las Vegas:

NFL Free Agency Period – Non-Exclusive Franchise Players

NFL Free Agency & Trading Period 2022

Non-Exclusive Franchise Tag – deadline March 8, 2022

The NFL’s salary cap for 2022 will rise to $208.2 million, expanding by $25.7 million compared to last postseason. That is the maximum amount agreed upon by the NFL and NFL Players Association in May.

The large increase stems from a lowered 2021 cap due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The previous cap in 2020 was $198.2 million, but because teams played in front of limited or no crowds last season, the 2021 cap was adjusted accordingly and reduced to $182.5 million, its lowest mark since 2018. That required teams to get somewhat creative in efforts to be in compliance with the cap.

Prior to the pandemic, the NFL salary cap had been steadily increased each season in recent years in the range of $10-12 million per year.

Clubs that utilize a tender have until mid-July to work out a multi-year contract with a player. If an extension isn’t agreed to at that point, the player will work the 2022 season under the one-year tender.

There are three tender options: 1) Non-exclusive franchise tag; 2) Exclusive franchise tag; 3) Transition tag.

NFL Free Agency & Trading Period 2022 starts March 16th

Mike Gesicki – Miami Dolphins
David Njoku – Cleveland Browns
Dalton Schultz – Dallas Cowboys

Offensive Tackles – tag average is 16.662 million

Orlando Brown – Kansas City Chiefs
Cam Robinson – Jacksonville Jaguars

Safety – tag for safeties is $12.91 million

Jessie Bates – Cincinnati Bengals

Non-exclusive rights Franchise players
QB – $29,703 million
RB – $9.570 million
WR – $18.419 million

DT – $17.396 million
LB – $18.702 million
CB – $17.287 million
S – $12.911 million
K/P -$5.220 million

Non-exclusive franchise tag – This is a one-year tender of the average of the top five salaries at the player’s position over the last five years, or 120 percent of his previous salary, whichever is greater. The player can negotiate with other teams. The player’s current team has the right to match any offer or receive two first-round draft picks as compensation if he signs with another club.
