Can anything top the 2013 Iron Bowl?

Turkey.  Stuffing.  Delayed Flights.   Oh yeah, it’s that time of year again.  Rivalry Week is upon us in the college football universe.  For some teams, their rivalry game is the only game that matters all season.  Others need to beat their hated rival to stay in the play off race.  Regardless, winning is the most important statistic of the weekend.  (more…)

Can Brett Hundley save his draft stock with a big time performance agaisnt his cross town rivals?

Can Brett Hundley save his draft stock with a big time performance agaisnt his cross town rivals?

Will the real Brett Hundley please stand up? Week 13 is his show and there’s no bones about it. Yes, #8 Ole Miss vs Arkansas and #20 Missouri vs Tennessee will be crucial in SEC division races. #15 Arizona vs #17 Utah and Oklahoma State vs #7 Baylor will certainly be games worth paying attention too. But there’s no denying that we all will have a much clearer opinion of highly criticized UCLA QB Brett Hundley. (more…)


Scouting Report, Cody Prewitt, S

Pruitt's size as well as instincts and playmaking ability could make him a very enticing option at Safety for the Patriots.

This week I decided to leave my comfort zone and do a report on one of the more difficult positions to scout in my opinion. The Safety position can be tough when scouting off of TV because most of the time the view does not show us where exactly the Safety is lining up on each play and depending on the play call we may never see exactly what the player did on that particular play. Watching games this year, Cody Prewitt kept popping up for the plays he was making so I decided to give him a closer look. Here is what I saw. (more…)

Will Mississippi State get the monkey off their back and beat Alabama? Or will Amari Cooper & Co. once again own their SEC West rivals.

Will Mississippi State get the monkey off their back and beat Alabama? Or will Amari Cooper & Co. once again own their SEC West rivals?

Some weekends just have a playoff feel to them, and week 12 is certainly one of them. Teams are playing a game of musical chairs for one of the playoff spots, while prospects are running out of time to build their resumes for the 2015 NFL draft. Week 12 has two mammoth SEC match ups, in which all four teams playing all have a realistic shot at the playoffs. Will you be camped in front of a television Saturday? I know I will. Here are the biggest matchups of the weekend broken down. (more…)


Scouting Report: Tevin Coleman, RB

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

NEPD Staff Writer: Mike Gerken

If you read my last scouting report on Jay Ajayi, you know that I am looking for a 3 down running back who can take over for Stevan Ridley if he is not back next year.  I really liked what I saw from Ajayi on film, but I don’t think he fits that type of runner, so my search continues. This week, we move onto Tevin Coleman, the Indiana University running back who has been putting up impressive numbers so far.  Just like with Ajayi, I didn’t know much about his game or running style before watching his tape.  Here are my thoughts, both good and bad.

Jaelen Strong burned the Irish for 8 catches for 136 yards and a touchdown last year.  Can the electric Junior do it again?

Scouting Report: Jay Ajayi, RB

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

NEPD Staff Writer: Mike Gerken

Coming off an impressive win over the Broncos, it is hard not to argue that the Patriots are the best team in the NFL. Of course, right now that really means nothing and by no means are the Patriots perfect.  The running game production has really fallen off after the loss of Stevan Ridley to injury and while Shane Vereen is a very good pass catching change of pace back, he does not seem like an every down back.  Those two will also be free agents at the end of the year leaving the Patriots with unknown commodities left at the position with Jonas Gray, James White, and Tyler Gafney.  This week, I thought I would take a look at a potential target for the Patriots in the running game, Jay Ajayi.
