2017 NFL Mock Draft

This is one of the most talented classes in years but with a number of qb needy teams and lack of a clear top passing prospect or a common ranking of for the positions top prospects at all the first round could see a lot movement. The draft’s best players are on the defensive side…

2017 NFL Mock Draft: First Round

The NFL Draft is finally here. After months of waiting and wondering, the 2017 rookie class will finally have their homes. There are so many storylines and possibilities to keep up with, it seems like there is something new everyday. Injury and off the field issues are really mucking up the waters and are making…

N2K’s Top LB’s in the Draft

This years group of linebackers have been all over the place and while there’s some great talent on the outside teams looking for an interior backer may have a harder time finding a true impact player. The best defensive athletes this year are the corners and DE’s but the linebacker group has great instincts and…

N2K’s Top DE’s in the Draft

After an extended break from positional rankings (thanks to my anthropology of touring culture class whatever that is) I’m back with my breakdown for the draft’s top defensive ends. Arguably the most talented position in the draft, outside of the top slot experts have been all over the place with their rankings and reasonably so….

N2K’s Top DT’s in the Draft

Defensive tackle is the most underwhelming position on the defensive side of the ball this year, but still has elite talent at the top. Most of these players fit as a 3 technique or a 3-4 defensive end, and it will be tough to find a nose tackle ready to start from day one. Most…

N2K’s Top WR’s in the Draft

Like the rest of this draft class besides QB and OT, the receiver position is loaded. There are a number of players that have the potential to be a number 1 target as well as a countless prospects that can work as complementary pieces and flourish in the role of number 2. Any receiver-needy team…

N2K’s Top Tight Ends in the Draft

This years class of tight ends is the first of many deep positions for this upcoming draft. There at least two names that figure to be gone by the end of day one and as many as 5 could be off the board once the second round ends. This group is talented and could produce…

N2K’s Top Offensive Lineman in the Draft

This year’s class of offensive lineman is underwhelming to say the least, and it does not contain premium talent. If your team is in need of a major upgrade on the line, this is not the class to be looking at. With very few names in the conversation for the first round, this group, like…

N2K’s Top 5 QBs in the Draft

The Combine is fast approaching, with Day 1 starting on February 28th. With that, it’s time to start breaking down this year’s top prospects. I’ll be starting off with what might be the weakest position of this year’s class, quarterback. Lacking an Andrew Luck or Cam Newton-type prospect, most of these players are long term…

Takeaways On ND’s Signing Day

To say Notre Dame struggled through the 2016 season would be a massive, massive understatement. Though they lost a lot of key contributors from their Fiesta Bowl team the year prior, the Irish underperformed on both sides of the ball, and it lead to a lot of questions regarding the program’s future. Brian Kelly’s job is…

College Football Playoff Prediction – National Championship

In many ways, a rematch of last year’s epic national championship seems like it was fate. This time last season, it was Alabama who overcame skepticism (whether it was actually deserved or not) en route to beating a then-undefeated Tigers team. This time around, it’s the Tigers who many (myself included) have called “overrated” or…

NFL Draft Player Preview: Dalvin Cook

After watching the Orange Bowl last night, one player clearly stood out. In fact, Dalvin Cook has stood out in almost every game he has played in a Florida State uniform. He is second all-time in the ACC in rush yards with over 4200 yards in his 3-year career. He is one of the only…
