Mike Loyko’s 2014 NFL Draft Top 100: January Edition

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

How is Johnny Football ranked in Mike’s Top 100?

NEPD Editor: Mike Loyko

The college football season wrapped up last night and now it’s time to turn all of our attention to towards the NFL Draft. Even though the draft is more than four months away it’s not too early to start projecting how the board will stack up in May.

Based on our evaluations this season and previous seasons, this list  is intended to be a gauge of where I would select a player if I ran an NFL team. As more evaluation is completed and the Senior Bowl, Combine and Pro Days take place this list will change. For now, here is how I rank the top prospects for the 2014 NFL Draft.

Too much blame in losses, too much credit in wins is a hackneyed but accurate truism used to describe a few positions within the world of sports. The quarterback position is not just the most influential position likely in all of sports  as far as affecting wins and losses. It’s also one of the toughest positions to evaluate, scout and project to the next level.

When so many factors are relevant it can be tough to gauge what matters and what is trivial. That discussion is more suited for a historical and in depth review so here are some of those attributes scouts look for and which draft eligible prospects (those who have not taken themselves out of consideration) rank among of the best in each.

Each NFL prospect will be examined fully before Roger Goodell reads their names. The Senior Bowl and Combine help scouts get a complete picture of a prospect’s ability to play football as well as his character and professionalism off the field. Until then, all we can go on is tape. Based on their performances to date as well as how their skill sets project at the next level I’ve ranked the top two offensive prospects at each position.

2014 NFL Draft: Mike Loyko’s Big Board

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

NEPD Editor: Mike Loyko

Early reports on the 2014 NFL Draft class are very promising. Compared to 2013 next year’s draft figures to be much deeper at key positions including Quarterback, Defensive End, Offensive Tackle and Outside Linebacker. The top of the draft especially features franchise players at multiple positions, which 2013 lacked. Each week throughout the year I will update my Big Board to reflect the top draft eligible prospects for the 2014 NFL Draft.

My ranking is not meant to be a mock draft or a projection as to where players will be drafted. The rankings reflect my evaluation of talent based on what I have scouted to this point. As the season progresses new names will be added and players will drop off.


2014 NFL Draft: Quarterbacks to Watch

Who is the best college quarterback behind Teddy Bridgewater?

NEPD Editor: James Christensen

Tom Brady is arguably the best quarterback in the NFL today and perhaps in the history of the NFL, and by all accounts, he isn’t ready to hang up his shoulder pads anytime soon.

However, the Patriots have had a long standing commitment to developing quarterback talent behind Brady. They’ve spent draft picks on the likes of Rohan Davey, Kliff Kingsbury, Kevin O’Connell, Matt Cassel, Zac Robinson and Ryan Mallett – with varying degrees of success. None of them have been picked until the third round.

However, with an impressive – at first and second glances anyway – potential 2014 NFL Draft Class at quarterback, could the Patriots buck that trend and select a quarterback in the first or second round? If so, here are the likely suspects.
