Each Team’s Best and Worst NFL Draft Pick

With 253 players chosen, the NFL draft is officially over. Here is each team's best and worst draft pick. AFC AFC West Denver Broncos Best Pick: Paxton Lynch, Quarterback, Memphis, first round In taking Paxton Lynch, the Broncos have secured their franchise quarterback moving forward. In order to acquire Lynch, the Broncos had to trade up to prevent teams like Dallas and Cleveland from taking...

The Greatest Upsets Ever

Sports are so entertaining because anything can happen at any time. Buzzer beaters, individual heroism, record breaking moments, championship celebrations and even extreme despair. Maybe the best thing about sports, however, is that on any given day or in any given season any team can be victorious. That unpredictability leads to upsets, with some being of small proportions and some...

Will the Cleveland Browns add Spread Offense Concepts?

At the start of 2016, Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam turned control of the team over to new GM Sashi Brown. Paul DePodesta was then hired as the team's "Chief Strategy Officer". These hirings meant one thing: Cleveland was relying on analytics. As they have since 1999, the Browns needed a quarterback. Cleveland rolled the dice and signed free...

The Golden Age of Running Backs Is Now…but Nobody Cares

Stop me if you've heard this one before: the running back position is being devalued in the NFL. It's a common cliché that is a direct result of another NFL cliché: it's a passing league now. Both of these are true statements. In a world where only four running backs are making an average of $7 million or more...

Eagles OTA News and Notes

One of the least discussed, and arguably most critical part for the 2016 Eagles is their new head coach, Doug Pederson. Everyone loves to talk about Bradford vs. Wentz (which I will do in a second), or even the new coordinators (Frank Reich & Jim Schwartz), but there is just not much information about the new head honcho. Pederson’s...

Predicting the 2016 NFL Rookies of the Year

Offensive Rookie of the Year: The Frontrunner: Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Dallas Cowboys This is an easy pick. The best running back prospect in the last few years drafted to the team with the NFL's best offensive line. If Elliott doesn't win the OROY award, it will be a disappointment. Now that Darren McFadden's injury woes have resurfaced, look for Elliott to tote...

Eagles’ Running Backs Outlook for 2016

Last offseason, the Eagles pulled a HUGE power move in the NFC East by signing DeMarco Murray to a 5-year $42M deal. In 2014, he rushed for 1,845 yards with the Cowboys (115.3 ypg) and was expected to do much of the same in Philadelphia. Murray either did not adjust well to running behind a shotgun formation offense, or he simply...

Fletcher Cox Signs Historic Contract Extension

Maybe Fletcher Cox’s appearance at Cheerleaders’ Gentleman’s Club last Thursday was a foreshadowing of the monster deal to come the following week. Regardless, the Eagles and their 2012 1st round pick, Fletcher Cox, finally came to an agreement on a contract extension, and it was a historic one. Cox signed a 6-year $102.6M contract extension, with a jaw-dropping $63.3M...

Zach Ertz’s 2016 Fantasy Potential

During Eagles' offseason practices so far, fourth year TE Zach Ertz's role has significantly increased in Doug Pederson’s new offense. This past January, Ertz signed a brand new, 5-year $42.5M extension ($21M guaranteed) to be an Eagle until 2021. Ertz's extension made it clear that the Eagles' front office liked the kid's potential as a premier pass-catching tight end. So new head coach Doug Pederson is well...

Could Ezekiel Elliott Win MVP This Year?

"With the fourth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys select Ezekiel Elliott!" In just one sentence, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, speaking on behalf of Jerry Jones and his Dallas Cowboys, changed the landscape of the NFL for years to come. Prior to the draft, the Cowboys' offense, when healthy, was already a top 10 unit...
