Factoid: Trey Lance

Trey Lance should be a fun rookie quarterback to monitor. San Francisco gave up two future first-round picks to move up 9 spots to take him, which shows both how much they like him and how ready they are to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo. I think the veteran is off the roster by August, and Lance is a Week 1 starter.   more »

Trivia: May 9, 2021

Trey Lance turns 21 today. He was only a 20-year-old when San Francisco drafted him No. 3 overall. Who was the last quarterback selected No. 1 overall who was even younger than Lance? answer »

Factoid: Rookie kickers

Evan McPherson was the only kicker who got drafted. The Bengals are expecting he’ll be their guy. But history indicates he’s far more likely to flame out than you might expect.  more »

Around the NFL: Buffalo running backs

One team commonly mocked to select a running back in last weekend's NFL Draft was Buffalo. Travis Etienne, for example, might have really juiced up that ground game. It didn't happen. Buffalo has signed Matt Breida, and will add him to the running back room with Zack Moss (pictured) and Devin Singletary, and that's about it. Will one of these backs be fantasy-relevant?  more »

Factoid: Free agent receivers

Stefon Diggs and DeAndre Hopkins put up big numbers last year, and they did it despite landing with new teams Normally with the heralded receivers who switch teams in the offseason, it’s more common to see them decline.   more »


Factoid: Eric Ebron / Pat Freiermuth

While Kyle Pitts deservedly garners the most interest among rookies at the tight end position, I'm looking at another player to potentially target a little later in rookie drafts. The Steelers drafted Pat Freiermuth out of Penn State late in the second round, and he could make a big impact in their offense.   more »

Factoid: Dropped passes

I wonder what the new coaching staff in Philadelphia will do with Miles Sanders on third downs? He’s got breakaway ability, but he’s dropped way too many passes.  more »


Around the NFL: Darren Fells

The Lions signed Darren Fells yesterday. It's his second stint with the team; he's actually played for four different teams in the last five years. I don't think anyone hoping to select T.J. Hockenson should be terribly concerned about Fells' presence, but it is something to factor into his projection.   more »

Around the NFL: Lions receivers

I have some interest in Amon-Ra St. Brown, the wide receiver the Lions drafted in the fourth round. Not so much because I’m wowed by what he did at Southern Cal, but I like the situation he’s in.  more »


Around the NFL: Offensive lines

Back in 2019, the Broncos thought they'd secured the right tackle position for years to come when they signed JaWuan James from Miami. Not so much: James played in only 3 games that season before getting hurt, opted out of 2020, and will now miss most (probably all) of 2021 after tearing his Achilles.   more »
