NFL Draft: QB’s Rankings

Future Fantasy Quarterbacks come in many shapes and sizes, therefore lets get right into it with Videos too. Here’s the current rankings providing the most potential long term value to an NFL team.

 

NFL Draft Rankings: QB

  1. Mitch Trubisky

At 6-2 and 222 lbs, the QB has the size and attributes to have a good chance as any, and rightly being the potential #1 drafted QB this year. Here is Voch’s take on him:

Mitch is the Top QB, as said based on his overall decision making, accuracy, and ability to learn and grow likely in other NFL systems.

2. Patrick Mahomes II

Mahomes has a very strong arm to begin with. Been compared to Matt Stafford. He keeps plays alive and throws well outside the pocket even deep outside of the pocket.

Patrick is a Firery leader as he directs players, as you gotta love that. Also he steps up into his throws which you have to love also, and lastly great running with awareness, bring him into the top half based on that ability, of the first round.

3. DeShone Kizer

Kizer has a long wind up in his throwing motion of which coaches will try and get him out of. He has a strong arm and nice running ability, along with good pocket presence. Here he is getting evaluated:

I don’t honestly see why is as highly ranked as he is. He showed inaccurate throws, although he has a good touch on deep throws

4. DeShawn Watson

With Watson there is some striking football and athletic characteristics along with experience winning games that is valuable. He throws slant and wheel routes well, and has improved on deep route and footwork displayed at combine and pro days. However, nothing stands out to me.

He can of course improve, but there are too many inconsistencies on film to consider him a for sure 1st rounder in my opinion here.

5. Davis Webb

Here are my initial thoughts on Webb: He had a lot of quick spread plays, witch led to good red zone production for him. He was able to look at both sides of the field in making reads and he was a good play action and screen thrower.

This was a guy that initially I did not realize how big he is. He has a great size to play at the next level and if his decision making improves at the next level he could be one of those sleepers everyone wishes they would have drafted.

6. Brad Kayya

In this report on Kayya, out of the University of Miami, he did not stand out in the combine at all, but in his film he showed accurate intermediate to deep routes, scans the field for checkdowns, and has NFL caliber awareness as he resets for a balanced throw after a scramble, a trait some of the QB’s rated above him here lack.

This is all basically displayed here:

On the negative side with Brad, he has problems displayed with mechanics, as he throws off balance at times, and he cannot really run like the others can at all.

7. Trevor Knight

Trevor Knight has superior athletic ability compared to the others of this draft class for the QB position. It showed up all through the combine. He is a good runner speed at the position. Although he has wild passes, partly due to inexperience, he shows promise as a deep ball thrower and throws good slant routes, with ability to improvise and check down when needed.

Her is on display with all of those notes of mine.

Knight also shows some poise in the pocket, which I like as well for a mid to late round pick up at QB.

8. Josh Dobbs

Dobbs can easily get away from a rush, as he also shows good athletic ability, which is a big reason why I put him up this high compared to others. As seen in this film vs Auburn, inconsistencies are a weakness.

Dobbs is like by Peyton Manning, however, he needs to learn a lot form Peyton when it comes to making reads, as throwing better passes away from traffic, leading to interceptions and missed open receivers. He does posses a strong arm and good running skills as his 3-5 step drop release is good.

9. Nathan Peterman

This will be the the last QB sure to be drafted. Anyone else I am not so sure about, as Peterman showed no real outstanding skills that I notice, other than a strong arm.

As with so many other QB’s coming out of drafts you never know. What you can see is that the mistakes are kept to a minimum and the associated risks needed just need to be accurate to make it at the next level.

NFL Combine Leading to NFL Draft Ready Players

As a result of the 2017 NFL Combine, we have draft ready players!

Let’s do this analysis a bit different based on the information we have. This will go into the best players based on Combine performance only. No biased review will be done. Only what was seen on the practice field the last several days.

NFL Combine Leads to NFL Draft in the nfl offseason Schedule

Yes of course, the film matters and is %80 of evaluation, making the Combine results very insignificant to a large extent, but I believe this may be a solid fit to feel out which players have the bodies, and physical, and well as talent attributes NFL teams are looking for in the 2017 NFL Draft.

nfl combine drills

Since I just finished up reviewing the replay of the combine again this weekend, here we go with a review of the top performers on offense, since defense has little to do with Fantasy Football.

Here we start with the OLinemen.

The best guy overall here athletically may be COLLINS, AVIANTE from Texas Christian. He had the 2nd fastest 40 time, the best split time, as well as by far the best bench press with 34 reps. Athletic Offensive Tackles such as Collins are very likely to make it in the NFL.

Another guy that would impress to me, is ELUEMUNOR, JERMAINE from Texas A&M, who has good lateral movement, as a Big Gliding type guy, with Rugby style experience and room for much improvement.

One more very athletic guy is BOLLES, GARETT from Utah who has some of the best including vertical, broad jump, 3 cone, and as expected was one of the best in cone drills.

RBs nfl draft ready players

Here are some of the true NFL Ready ones:

With one of the top verticals and the top 3-coner in the combine among RB’s, MCCAFFREY, CHRISTIAN out of Stanford also is the smoothest hand catching, and routes running, along with cutting RB probably in the draft overall, which is surprising to me with all of the talent stacked at the position this year.

The next guy worth watching is FOURNETTE, LEONARD as pro, obviously he has beast type potential, with other decent to good skills such as receiving out of the backfield and blocking.

The third and perhaps even best football player of the RB bunch is COOK, DALVIN, showing really good ball skills, as well as overall good combine number, pretty much reminding me of the precious Fla. St. RB for the Falcons.

There are plenty of great options at the position but the guy I don’t want to take anything away from is PERINE, SAMAJE, who put up great numbers, showing off to be the strongest in bench reps of the bunch and already having a really good pro day, in addition to his combine drills.

TEs

For this group I will go ahead and safely rank in order of combine performance:

HOWARD, O’TERRIUS: This TE is a at worst, a late 1st round pick and probably the best body and combine performace, at his size of 6-6 and 251lbs is impressive.

Evan Engram had quite an athletic performance showing at this combine with the fastest 40 along with pretty good jumping and cone skills as a hybrid type TE/WR

Also, the 3rd was actually a tough choice but I have to go with the guy for the model of the position with the highest vertical, Jonnu Smith form FIU, at 6-3, has decent height and amazing 38″ vert. for the position.

Well, let’s go ahead and add one more, David Njoku as a really good pro fit, only 1/2 away on the vert. to Smith.

WRs

With John Ross really on the big time radar, you cannot argue with the effect of pure speed of this game, bolting him into the definite first round, if not 1st half of that first round, if thats what a team wants.

With the 2nd best 40 time, I really believe Curtis Samuel is a play maker whether thats at wideout, slot or running back. He is just a playmaker, boosting that draft stock as a potential first rounder, late in the round.

Also Chris Goodwin from Peen state really fit himself into his prototypical 6-1, 209 lb frame with one of the best 40s and.. Tied for best bench press, which fascinates me personally for the WR position for some reason. Those are potential HOF abilities, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves or course, as a late 1st round, or 2nd round sleeper.

QB

Now for the Quarterback, leaders of teams, with the best looking one appearing to be according to workouts is Deshaun Watson. Great deep balls, and good control on his shorter routes. I am really less concerned with the actual numbers as much as I am with the workouts, in showing how accurate and strong they are throwing the ball.

Also Mithell Trubiskey, looks like a really strong armed, and accurate QB for the most part, tyring to also take on a leadership role like Watson.

And of course, the guy supposed to be having the most upside, DeShone Kizer, was without surprise one of the best performers, although not being the originally expected top QB of the bunch, but more like 3rd behind these guys at this point, based on the combine performance.

Keep in mind all of these overall rankings will change as we get closer to the draft as we will come up with a more accurate estimation of the actual draft and where they will fall with a little extra help from film studies.
