Derrius Guice Scouting Report

Antonio Callaway Scouting Report

"If Callaway didn't get himself suspended there's a good chance he'd be WR #1 in this class. Unfortunately he's likely off many boards as a significant character risk." Strengths: Quick footed, smooth runner with deceptive speed. Good open field runner with stop/start quickness, lateral mobility and vision. Good extension makes up for height and good ball skills allow him to play bigger than he is. Dangerous, experienced punt returner. Weaknesses: Inconsistent hands. He's small at just over 5’10. Just a litany of character issues including allegations of sexual assault, marijuana possession and theft. Overall: If Callaway didn't get himself suspended there's a good chance he'd be WR #1 in t

Baker Mayfield Scouting Report

"Carries a combative personality and play style that powers him to be great and attracts teammates and fans but won't be as entertaining if it's coaches/execs he’s getting into it with."

Akrum Wadley Scouting Report

Auden Tate Scouting Report

Hands catcher with solid ball skills. Good feet for a large guy. Clutch, especially in the red zone with 16 career TDs. Weaknesses: Lacks speed and suddenness. Struggles to separate.

Tremaine Edmunds Scouting Report

"Edmunds is the youngest player in this draft and possesses a freak skill set but the catch is that his instincts are awful, and he lacks strength and lateral quickness."

Josh Rosen Scouting Report

"The only reason he's not #1 across all team's boards is likely the question of his durability." Strengths: Clean footwork and pocket movement. Former tennis player and it shows.

"The team that drafts Josh Allen high will be putting a lot of faith in their ability to get him to replicate the wow throws and greatly minimize the ugh throws." Strengths: Big, strong guy with an elite rocket arm and mobility. Can make every throw, including many most QBs can't, and stick it in the smallest of windows. Sudden mover and tough to bring down in and out of the pocket. Can throw on the run well particuliarly to his right. Experienced in a pro style system. Smart, engaging and has reportedly impressed on the white board in interviews. Rips an out from the far hash here. Beautiful step through and drops a dime on the run here.

Siran Neal Scouting Report

Strengths: Good sized CB with quickness and tackling ability that plays aggressive, physical coverage. Experienced at CB, S and LB. Comfortable at the los. Dictates with physical hands. Strong, tackler that brings animosity. Solid special teams gunner. In this clip Neal lines up at the star LB and knifes in on the RB. That's rare physicality for a CB if can stick there. Weaknesses: Good burst but not a blazer. Inconsistent motor and his effort’s up and down coming off blocks. Grabs a ton in coverage. Cover technique is sketchy. Neal held up at CB senior week and impressed but he also probably would've been the most flagged DB there. He wins vs Marcel Ateman in this clip but almost certainly

John Kelly Scouting Report

Good vision and attacks defenses. Strong, compact build and breaks tackles. First man rarely brings him down. Quick feet and finds daylight. Elusive in the open field. Good receiver and gets open consistently as a route runner. Flashes an angry stiff arm. Kelly has arguably the best balance of any RB in this class. Weaknesses: Good burst but lacks speed.

Andrew Brown Scouting Report

Strengths: Explosive, quick twitch, athletic big man. First step quickness routinely beats OL inside and out. Strong motor. Solid range and lateral mobility, tracks the ball all over the field and a solid tackler. Effective in space and experienced in a two pt stance, playing on the edge, interior and two gapping at the 5. Weaknesses: Big and athletic but appeared to rarely have a plan. Played high out of a two pt stance and occasionally lacked leverage. Relied on athletic gifts more than technique. Overall: Brown played prim

Skai Moore Scouting Report

"His size and just adequate athletic measureables are below average but if Moore adds good weight and maintains his quickness, he can be a productive starting pro LB."

Good range and loose hips. Great ball skills. Great tackler. Weaknesses: Undersized for LB and too slow for a DB. Suffered neck injuries that required surgery and sidelined him for a season. Overall: Moore's a DB playing LB, but has the physicality and strength to stack and shed. He fills lanes vs the run and is a reliable tackler. He gets good depth o

Da'Ron Payne Scouting Report

"Payne has great upside and is unnaturally big and athletic but he's not the run stuffer he looks like he should be. He's basically a penetrating 3 tech in a NT body." Strengths: Explosive off the snap and regularly the first man moving. Recorded the fastest 10yd split for interior DL at the combine. Crashes in and disrupts. Strong hands and batters an OL. Flashes leverage to annihilate lineman. Athletic for an interior lineman and chases with range. Solid motor. Weaknesses: Generally high off the snap and can get clobbered by the double team. Lateral mobility is just adequate. Occasionally lacks awareness/instincts and dives in without control opening up lanes in his wake. In this clip belo

Saquon Barkley Scouting Report

"If Barkley's going to avoid being just a heavier Reggie Bush he'll need to moderate with more violent runs where he uses that weight room strength to power thru contact." Strengths: Thick, bouncy, finesse runner with homerun speed. Tremendous lower body strength allows for gravity defying jump cuts, stop & starts, and changes of direction for a back of his size. Speed to outrun in the open field and around the corner. Soft hands and a dominant receiver out of the backfield. He should be as big a weapon as a receiver as he is a runner. Smart, capable blocker. Flashes strength to finish and break tackles. Brutal stiff arm. A terror on screens and draws. High character guy and a role model off
