NFL Draft Yearbook Scouting Report – 2017

* T.J. Watt #42 – 6-4, 255, Wisconsin – Sp. 4.65
NFL Comparison: Ryan Kerrigan                     Rating 90

Explosive dynamic redshirt junior completed his career with an amazing breakout performance after a limited earlier stay in Madison. Brother of NFL defender JJ Watt. Like JJ, he also converted to defense from tight end entering college. Earned 1st team Big Ten and 2nd team All-American by in 2016. Excellent combination of size, speed, athleticism and tenacity. Took his game up a few levels in 2016 where the game slowed down and he instinctively picked up schemes, blocking angles and the ball to respond naturally and quickly. Big athletic frame and the movement skills to attack the line or move laterally or in reverse. Finally, healthy from the prior knee injury, he flashed dominant skills in both run and pass defense. Tough physical defender who strikes with a powerful punch to get blockers off balance and use his good speed to make his move. Though not a refined quick twitch edge athlete, he can win with speed and will likely play more up as a linebacker in the pros. Emerged as one of the rising prospects in this draft class after an excellent final season. Shows perhaps the best technique development in this class, working out with his Pro Bowl brother JJ.  Quick burst off the ball often gets tackles off-balance and allows him to cross their face. Displays flexibility to avoid their reach and turn the corner with very good closing speed. Possesses a balanced spin move to counter inside and a better than expected bull rush. More effective playing up where he projects best to the backer role in the pro 3-4 scheme. Powerful edge defender with broad shoulders and impressive upper body development. Shows he can get hands under the tackle’s reach and walk much bigger pass-blockers back. Good pursuit speed, with the instincts and determination to chase down ball-carriers from behind. Explosive tackler and just learning to dislodge the ball on impact. Shows good ball awareness, often ripping and tugging when he gets the chance. At the point vs the run, he can anchor well vs big tackles and picks up the ball with the ability to separate and chase. At times, he takes on blockers too high and gets washed out of the play. Sets the edge very well vs the run with the girth to hold his ground and functional strength to neutralize tackles or tight ends even in combo blocks. Projects as an OLB in either front best, though could be a 4-3 weak side end in some schemes. Among the very best pure edge rushers in this draft, though could be even better with more experience and diversity in his rush moves. As a junior, he started all 14 games and had 71 tackles, a team-high 15.5 TFL, a team-high 11.5 sacks, 13 QB hurries, 2 FF, 1 pick and 4 PBU. In 2015, played in 13 games with no starts and made 8 tackles, 1.5 TFL, no sacks, 4 QB hurries and 3 PBU. First two years comprised redshirt and injury seasons in 2013 and 2014. A knee injury forced him to miss 2014. At the NFL Combine, he came in over 6’4”, 252 lbs. with long 33 1/8” arms and huge 11” hands. He ran a 4.69 time with a 1.61 ten-yard split and did 21 reps. He added a 37” VL, a 10’8” BJ and looked very sharp in the positional drills and had excellent times of a 6.79 three cone and a 4.13 in the short shuttle. Best suited for the attack backer role in a 3-4 defense where his playmaking ability off the edge shows a fast-developing elite skill set. He flashed many of the same skills as. Fast rising prospect jumped into the early rounds off a big postseason following a breakout 2016 effort. Power and fine burst with positional versatility. Similar to Ryan Kerrigan coming out of Purdue in body type, scheme versatility, pass rushing skills and overall demeanor. Rising hard-nosed defender with the intangibles to get the most out of his fast-developing skill set. Flying up the board and a top 25 pick off his impact ability. Steelers, Seahawks, Browns and Packers interested. First round bubble prospect.

* Justin Jefferson #2 – 6-1, 200, LSU – Sp. 4.45
                 NFL Comparison: Calvin Ridley      Rating 90
Big agile junior has been a key part of the Tigers’ deep receiving corps over his two starting seasons while earning All-American and SEC honors in 2019. Smooth wideout with long arms and strong hands. Fast developing skills to become an NFL playmaker within a short time and very productive over his career operating with QB Joe Burrow. Deceptive gliding running style with soft reliable hands and excellent use of his body to shield off defenders. Combines good size and speed with top hands to be one of the most intriguing prospects at this position. Shown fine improvement on the key points and nuances of the game, especially route running and overall defensive awareness. Amazing production vs top ten talent. Wiry high cut receiver with very good ball skills to start immediately. Savvy ability to separate in the deep game, though he lacks elite top end speed. Highly developed as a route runner with the ability to change speeds and use multiple moves on a defender. Eats up a cornerback’s cushion and comes out of his cuts well for a lanky receiver to create separation. Finds holes in coverage and is especially dangerous on the short and intermediate crossing routes. Precise route runner with the ability to recognize coverage and zone schemes to make fast adjustments. Size and agility to fight off the jam and separate in coverage with very good run after the catch ability. Shows development to adjust nicely and catch outside the box. Especially dangerous on the fade pattern with the developed hands to make the tough catch. At the sidelines, he uses his height, reach and leaping skills to create matchup problems. Learning to use his hands better to avoid the jam and stay on routes. Disciplined footwork at the breakpoint with very good body control to adjust and track the ball. As a route runner, he shows the ability to make cuts and retain his speed. Earned 1st team SEC honors. Scored 24 TDs over his final two seasons as one of the best red zone threats in the country. At the NFL Combine, he came in over 6’1” and 202 lbs. with 33” arms and 9’1/8” hands.  Did not lift. Ran an impressive 4.43 time and added a 37.5” VL and a 10’6” BJ. Performed very well in positional drills showing sure hands and good radius to complete an excellent overall performance. Similar to Calvin Ridley and Adam Thielen in size, speed, AA and playmaking ability. Developed polished receiver with early NFL starting talent. This fast riser developed almost as quickly as his QB Burrow. High LOD to play in multiple sets day one. Player with the athleticism to become a solid #1 receiver and big play NFL performer. Marginal top 25 prospect with talent to continue to improve and become an impact weapon.

Super Bowl LVI MVP – Rams’ Cooper Kupp – LA Victory Parade Day

Super Bowl LVI MVP – Rams’ Cooper Kupp
Completes Generational Performance
Eighth Wide Receiver to be named MVP

Rams’ Cooper Kupp capped off a breakout season with an MVP performance in Super Bowl LVI. Kupp’s 1-yard TD reception with 1:25 left became the winning score in the Rams’ 23-20 victory over the Bengals. He was justifiably named Super Bowl MVP after catching 8 of 10 targets for 92 yards and two TDs. He became only the eighth receiver to win Super Bowl MVP. QB Matthew Stafford finished 2nd in the balloting while DT Aaron Donald finished 3rd in the award. Stafford threw 3 TD passes and orchestrated a brilliant game plan with savvy throwing and good decision making. Donald was invisible the first three quarters being regularly double teamed, but came on late with two big sacks to close the victory.

Draft Insiders’ predicted a Rams Super Bowl victory prior to the start of the 2021 season in our 2021 forecast

On the game winning drive, Kupp also converted a fourth-and-1 with an 8-yard run on a jet sweep with five minutes left. It was probably the critical play of the game. He caught four passes for 34 yards on the Rams’ game-winning drive. Earlier, he also caught an 11-yard TD reception early in the second quarter gave the Rams a 13-3 lead.

Kupp won by the NFL’s most prolific offensive player off a rare generational 2021 triple statistic performance of receptions, yardage and TDs. He recently became the first wide receiver to receive a regular season MVP vote since Randy Moss in 1998. He finished third behind Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, the latter of whom won his fourth MVP award and 2nd in a row. rd.

The veteran 28 year-old receiver led the NFL in catches, receiving yards and TD receptions during the regular season. His 147 receptions and 1,947 receiving yards were the second-highest regular-season totals in league history. He became the first receiver in league history to surpass 2,000 receiving yards in a season during the Rams’ win over the Cardinals in the wild card round of the playoffs. In 21 games this season, including the postseason, he totaled 178 receptions for 2,425 yards and 22 TDs. He was the catalyst on an injured receiving corps that lost vet Robert Woods early in the season and late addition Odell Beckham who was injured in the first half of the Super Bowl. Kupp’s production helped deliver the Rams’ first Super Bowl win as a Los Angeles-based team.

Kupp won the wide receiver triple crown as he led the league in catches (145), yards receiving (1,947) and touchdowns (16). He averaged 114.5 yards per game, which was also tops in the league. His run after the catch ability is incredible with both speed and power to break tackles and run away from defenders.

NFL Draft 2022 Selection Order – The Jaguars are ‘On the Clock’ (Again)!

NFL Draft 2022 Selection Order – The Jaguars are ‘On the Clock’ (Again)!

Rams Win Super Bowl LVI and will select last in each round

Jaguars Lions, Texans, Jets & Giants Hold Current Top 5 Selections
Eagles Hold Three #1 Selections,
Giants & Jets Hold Two #1 Draft Choices

The Jacksonville Jaguars are ‘On the Clock’ with the first overall selection for the NFL Draft 2022. They earned the top overall draft choice again currently off a horrible 3-14 record. Rookie head coach Urban Meyer was fired in early December. Their recent overall draft decisions have been weak.

Detroit currently holds the 2nd overall selection off a poor 3-13-1 record with the Texans, Jets and Giants completing the top five selections. There is a logjam with nine clubs between 4-13, 7-10 and 9-8 that will impact the top selections.

Jets (#4 & #10) and Giants (#5 & #7) hold two first round picks each with both top ten selections. The Eagles hold three #1 selections (#15, 16 & 19) with all from the middle of the round back.

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

NFL teams look to both the veteran Free Agency period and the NFL Draft 2022 to improve their rosters. The salary cap went up significantly after a year with a reduced cap per team. It will dictate the movement of many veteran players this offseason and have an impact among the premier draft selections.

Rams win Super Bowl LVI and will draft last in each round. They traded their first three selections in deals for veterans who helped them win the Super Bowl. They will receive a #3 compensatory selection beyond #96.
