First Round Breakdown - The Runningbacks

When it comes to the NFL Draft, Runningbacks are sort of an enigma and for the 2011 NFL draft that's unlikely to change. There is no position in the draft that is more under valued than Runningback. You only see a handful of players who earn a pick in the first round and for the most part those that do have done so because of some rare physical gifts or ridiculous career numbers. Even then it can be rare to see them drafted very high, despite the difference a great RB can make to a team in the NFL. With more and more NFL teams preferring a platoon situation you're not likely to see 3 guys fly off the board inside the Top 15. With an 18 game season a big possibility as well,  the days of the every down RB might be gone forever.

Predicting all the Bowl Games

Let's roll through the Bowls, all 35 of them, in chronological order (maybe). I'm going to lay out who's playing in each one and then make a prediction on who'll win. Yet again I'll point out if I put money on my own predictions my kids would starve. I heartily recommend that you don't base anything financial on my predictions!

 New Mexico Bowl
 Who: BYU vs. UTEP
 Winner: BYU

 uDrove Humanitarian Bowl
 Who: Northern Illinois vs. Fresno State
 Winner: Fresno State

Snap Judgement-Championship Week Edition

You all know I can watch college football for hours at a time and I do just that. And I do my best with this site to be objective in terms of my rooting interests because I'm watching it primarily to scout players.  But I love college football.  Not like I love my family, but after my family, it's right up there.  I can become so engrossed in a game, that my kids are concerned for my well being.  This weekend, we have several of those moments both good and bad.  Let's get after it and talk about all the big news that was Championship weekend in college football.

Top 50 draft prospects...

Every draft I am asked to list the 100 players I believe that will be drafted in the first 100 picks. This is always a difficult task, mainly because rather than simply consider who the best 100 prospects are, you have to take into consideration which teams are picking when. Good players, and I mean really good players slip out of those first 3 rounds, because they aren't positions of need or they are just plain missed by the league. I have always felt pretty good that I can usually pull about 80 of the first 100 picks and I will continue to do it and hope to improve. But this year, I am going to add a little something. This is my list of the 50 best prospects from what I've seen regardless of where or by whom they will be drafted. To make it a little easier to follow, I have broken the players into groups, based on where I rate them compared to their peers.

Tier 1-The elite. It's normally not hard to get a group of ten guys you consider trul

Senior Bowl Report: Wednesday's North Practice

I arrived fashionably late for the North’s Wednesday morning practice, deciding to get right to the meat of it – and upon my arrival North is running 11-on-11 and BANG!

B.J. Raji blows Alex Mack way back, all the way back into Graham Harrell before the play even develops.  I was still a little groggy, but I think there was a RB under that pile, perhaps a stretch play.

Harrell had a pocket on the next play, makes it through his progressions, but not at an NFL pace and not surprisingly Sheets drops the dump off with a little help from the defender bearing down on him – simply too slow to develop.   Sheets redeems his part a bit by taking a hard hit square in the back and hangs on to the ball.

Senior Bowl Report: Tuesday's North Practice

North practice began with the same format and routine of drills – OL working in pairs with blocking pads, nothing noteworthy in there until they get working to a point when guys want to fight each other.
