Factoid: Robert Tonyan

I like the look of Robert Tonyan. He was the biggest surprise at the tight end position last year, with 11 touchdowns, and I think he’s going to continue being a good player.  more »

Trivia: April 12, 2021

J.D. McKissic caught 80 passes last year; he was originally undrafted. Austin Ekeler the previous season caught 92 passes; he was also originally undrafted. Who are the only other three running backs who have caught 70-plus passes in a season who originally entered the league as undrafted free agents? The hardest of the three, like McKissic, began his career with the Seahawks but played his best ball for other teams (his big receiving season came for a team that is in Seattle’s division). answer »

Joshua Kelley was pretty awful as a rookie. Can he get off the canvas and turn things around in his second season?  more »

Factoid: Rookie WRs

The draft is a couple of weeks away, and there’s a good chance a couple of wide receivers will be chosen in the top 10. Maybe three. The last time that happened, it didn’t go well.  more »

Factoid: Rookie QBs

We might see five quarterbacks chosen in the top 10 of the draft, and if form holds, at least a couple of them will be put up notable numbers in their first year. That’s the way it’s been trending in recent seasons.   more »

Around the NFL: Demarcus Robinson

I see where Demarcus Robinson is talking about going for 1,000 yards and 10 TDs. Sammy Watkins is gone, he reasons, so this will be the season for him to get more opportunities – and do more with them.  more »

Trivia: April 8, 2021

The Bengals on Wednesday released Giovani Bernard. He had been the longest-tenured running back in the league – since Cincinnati picked him in the second round in 2013. (Other running backs have been in the league longer, but not all with the same team.) With Bernard looking for a new team, what running back now has the longest active streak of employment with the same team? This player was a fourth-round pick in 2014 and has been with the same team all along. answer »

Factoid: Washington receivers

I have some interest in Washington’s wide receivers. Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel have some ability, and I think Ryan Fitzpatrick could be the quarterback to help them reach their full potential.  more »

Factoid: Panther receivers

What the Panthers could really use out of Sam Darnold would be some touchdown passes. Two years in a row they’ve ranked above-average in passing, but with only 17 and 16 touchdowns. They need to put more of those in the end zone.  more »
