College Watch List: Offensive Lineman

September 13th, 2016
The Patriots have not really addressed the Tackle position for awhile, but I think this year they must, and maybe early.

Okay, full disclosure. I underestimated just how much time and energy having baby #2 was going to take. In the past four years, I must have forgotten just how much work these little guys are. I think my wife and I have finally got a routine down now and I have carved out a little time for film review and writing. I figure I can save a couple hours a week by just not watching the Cyclones anymore. Since we are only a few weeks into the season, it is too early to really get into scouting reports, so I will finish out my series on the Seniors I plan on scouting this season. Today, we tackle the offensive line.

Alabama LB Tim Williams will look to terrorize USC QB Max Browne in this one.

Two of the most prolific programs in all of college football will meet up in prime time in Arlington on Saturday night. Alabama is considered to be one of the favorites to challenge for the National Championship this year, while USC is trying to climb back on top of the Pac-12 and reassert itself as a dominant program. Both teams are absolutely loaded with star studded prospects and this game will have the attention of all 32 NFL teams. Read the rest of this entry »

The 2016 Chick-Fil-A Kickoff game features one of the best games of the weekend as the Bulldogs take on the Tarheels at the Georgia Dome. This game not only features dynamic prospects but also two coaches who are among the best at designing offensive and defensive schemes. This game should be one of the most entertaining and competitive tilts of the weekend. Read the rest of this entry »


Prospect Preview: Oklahoma v. Houston

Can Houston QB Greg Ward upset the Sooners?

Can Houston QB Greg Ward upset the Sooners?

One of the best games of this weekend will also be one of the first games played as Oklahoma takes on Houston in what should be an absolute shootout. Looking at this match-up most people would assume that Oklahoma should easily beat the Cougars, but this is a Houston team that many consider to be a sleeper for the CFB Playoff and whose offensive is as explosive as any in the country.

For the 2016 Season, the Patriots seem set at the Tight End position, but will it be a priority in next years draft?

NEPD Staff Writer: Mike Gerken

First off, I want to apologize for anyone who has been trying to get onto the site over the past several days. We had some website issues, but hopefully those are all behind us now and we can focus on football. Because of the technical difficulties, I am behind on my Watch List series. We have already had one game, with more college football tonight and a good slate of games scheduled for the holiday weekend. It truly is one of the best times of the year.

Tennessee LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin is one to watch.

The Tennessee Volunteers have been one of the most hyped teams this offseason by pundits from coast to coast. They are the trendy pick to win the SEC East and some have even wondered about their ability to challenge whoever comes out of the West in the title game. However, first they must get past a very tricky Sun Belt opponent in Appalachian State. Read the rest of this entry »


Prospect Preview: Hawaii v. Cal

Top Prospect Cal QB Davis Webb

Top Prospect Cal QB Davis Webb

College Football is nearly back and I don’t know if I could of waited another weekend. While the full slate of games won’t be kicking off for another week, this weekend we get Hawaii v Cal on Friday night from Sydney, Australia. While this match-up may not knock your socks off, there are a number of good reason to watch this game.

The first of which is that the Pac-12 North Division is wide open and with Cal’s offensive weapons they could certainly make a run at the division title. However, they need to replace QB Jared Goff and they are hoping that Texas Tech transfer Davis Webb can be that guy.

For Hawaii this is the first game for new Head Coach Nick Rolovich who was a former Hawaii QB. Rolovich is highly thought of and the one thing that many people expect is that he will improve an offense that was anemic last year.

Here are the prospects to know and watch in this game: Read the rest of this entry »
