Pro Day Spotlight: Georgia, Stanford

Jarvis Jones 2013 NFL Draft

The downward perception of Jarvis Jones’ draft stock is likely to continue following a disappointing pro day performance.

NEPD Staff Writer: Dan Hope

Thursday was a big day on the pro day schedule leading up to the 2013 NFL Draft, highlighted by the pro days held at Georgia and Stanford, both of which were streamed via ESPN3.

I took the time to watch both pro days, focusing on some of the top prospects from each school and evaluating what the workouts showed about their athleticism.

Specifically, the day’s headliner was one of the draft class’ premier prospects, Georgia outside linebacker Jarvis Jones. Having not worked out at the NFL Scouting Combine, the Bulldogs’ pro day was an important opportunity for him to show his athleticism to the scouts. Unfortunately for Jones, he had a disappointing showing.

Jarvis Jones is an explosive prospect… but is he over-valued?

NEPD Editor: James Christensen

As I mentioned earlier this week during my five under-valued prospects, we’ll be starting an exclusive Play The Draft league for readers of our network of sites this Monday.

Here are five prospects that I’d recommend staying away from putting on your Play The Draft team this season.

Fans and sports media tend to get more excited about the NFL Combine than the average NFL team. Sure, teams still fall victim to so-called workout warriors (See: Poe, Dontari 2012), but the reality is most teams rely more heavily on what they see on the field than in this workouts.

What makes the combine great is players will surprise you. We knew Chris Johnson was fast at East Carolina, but all-time fast? His workout took him from a second round pick into the first with his explosiveness.
Workouts, whether outstanding or underwhelming, will usually make teams go back and look at the tape. You want the workout to underscore what you’re seeing on film.

The combine gives players a chance to show they have better speed than their film indicates, or perhaps they’ve gotten stronger and put on weight since they were playing.

While it isn’t the be all and end all, the combine does mean a lot at stake for the 300 or so college prospects who are lucky enough to attend. We took a look at prospects with the most to gain and the most to lose with their performance at the combine starting next week.

How Jadeveon Clowney, Marqise Lee Would Shake Up the 2013 NFL Draft

Saturday, November 3rd, 2012

What would happen if Jadeveon Clowney was allowed to enter the 2013 draft?

NEPD Writer: Dan Hope

The topic of whether freshmen and sophomores should be allowed to enter the NFL draft received significant attention last Saturday, when junior South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore, who likely could have been a first-round pick after his freshman or sophomore season, suffered a severe right knee injury that leaves his football future significantly in jeopardy. What would happen if the top Sophomore prospects were allowed to enter the 2013 draft?

When two perennially good programs (Georgia and Florida) from the perennially best football conference (the SEC) play football, you’ve got to watch – especially when they have as many dynamic defensive players as these two teams have.

Here is a look at the top defenders on each team.
