    Four years ago BLUEchip put out the recruiting rankings for every recruit in the 2015 recruiting class, and while the recruiting service is no longer operating we can look back at their rankings of the top prospects of the time. Below are the top 10 prospects from that recruiting class and a bit of a look back on their careers so far. DISCLAIMER: Yes these are bad when I first did them I wanted these rankings to be as realistic as possible and I figured generally the more polished (talented) guys coming out of college get graded higher even if they didnt have as much potential because potential is impossible to estimate in real life. The season after had rankings designed to better guess future production. 10 - OT Taylor Randolph 76 278 Fr Bettendorf (Bettendorf, IA) [Pass Blocking] While Randolph is currently only a redshirt junior for the Iowa Hawkeyes he is considered by many to be one of the top OT prospects in the country. Randolf has anchored the Hawkeye line for three years and will be faced with a tough decision whether or not to declare early at the end of the season. 9 - WR Arturo Beckham 73 176 Fr Thunderbird (Phoenix, AZ) [speed] 3.0 of 4.5 Beckham has really struggled making the transition from high school to college. Beckham has never amassed a 1,000 yard season and despite never having star talent at QB he hasn't shown great flashes for the pro scouts. He has shown some development improving every season but he has been overall very disappointing at ASU. Beckham will likely be a late round selection in the 2020 draft. 8 - OLB Austin Olson 71 234 Fr Garrett (Garrett, IN) [Run Man-to-Man] 2.5 of 5.0 Olson was a first round selection in the 2018 NFL draft to the New Orleans Saints. Rated as an 82 coming out of college, Olson has averaged over six tackles per game in his rookie season. While Olson has not be a playmaking OLB he has caught one interception and got to the QB four times so in 2018. 7 - CB Teddy Walker 71 177 Fr Hickman (Columbia, MO) [Man Coverage] 3.0 of 5.0 Walker also declared for the NFL draft early and was the third player taken in the 2018 draft by the Kansas City Chiefs. While Walker has not caught many interceptions or been a playmaker in his first season as a pro he has be the key piece in a turnaround for the Chiefs secondary. The Chiefs have gone from the worst past defense in the league in 2017, giving up over 316 yards per game, to the second best pass defense in the league giving up less than 215 yards per game. The Chiefs staff believes Walker's addition played the biggest role in the turnaround. 6 - SS David Pennington 73 192 Fr Lee Academy (Marianna, AR) [Zone Coverage] 3.5 of 5.0 Pennington is the best strong safety in the 2019 draft class. At Vanderbilt during the 2018 season Pennington has the third most interceptions of any player in the league and tied Romulus Jackson's record for most interceptions in a season by a strong safety (7), is tied for the most defensive touchdowns by any player, and averages just under six tackles per game. 5 - QB Joel King 73 220 Fr S&S Consolidated (Sadler, TX) [Pocket] 2.5 of 5.0 King was considered the best prospect by many in the 2015 class but BLUEchip had him ranked as the third best QB and fifth overall. King has had a somewhat controversial career as the Houston QB as he has never really lit up the scoreboard in college, but has been maybe the most consistent player in the league the past four years. King protects the ball really well, having thrown less than five interceptions each season since his true freshman year in which he threw seven. King is considered by many to be the third best QB in the 2019 draft, but a strong showing at the combine could push him as high as first overall. 4 - OT Donald Reed 77 293 Fr Lakeland (Lakeland, FL) [Pass Blocking] 3.0 of 5.0 Reed was the top ranked OT in the country in 2015, but he still has a year of eligibility left at Virginia Tech. After redshirting his freshman year Reed has been the most consistent player for the Hokies the past three seasons. Reed will have to make a decision soon as well about declaring for the NFL draft or staying for his senior season in Blacksburg. 3 - QB Matthew Dobbs 73 213 Fr Landstown (Virginia Beach, VA) [scrambling] 3.0 of 4.5 Dobbs is the second player in a row on this list that attended Virginia Tech. Dobbs has clearly busted compared to his ranking coming out of high school. While he hasn't been terrible he really hasn't shown any ability to take over a game. Dobbs will look to find a spot on an NFL roster as a backup and maybe eventually get some playing time in the future, but he has shown no reason to expect he could play in the NFL. The good news for Dobbs is he will have his redshirt senior season in 2019 to prove to NFL scouts he is worth a late round pick 2 - QB Charlie Walter 75 228 Fr Pendleton (Pendleton, OR) [Pocket] 3.0 of 4.5 Walter is in the same boat as Dobbs is, but without the extra season to prove he can play at a professional level. While Walter has been better than Dobbs so far in their careers Walter is entering the 2018 draft and will be looking to get on a teams bench. While he has shown that he can protect the football and not cost his team games, he hasn't shown the ability to make the hard throws a starting QB has to make in the NFL. He will likely get picked up in a later round by a team desperate for a backup, but dont expect to hear his name again until his retirement. 1 - DT 1 David Medley 79 310 Fr Owyhee (Owyhee, NV) [Run Stop] 3.5 of 5.0 Medley is considered the top defensive tackle prospect in the 2019 draft, but that isn't really saying much. Medley is the best of a bad bunch, as there are only four defensive tackles rated above 76 Medley may go high but it isn't because he has stood out so far in his four years. Now that isn't to say Medley isn't a good player, he is, he just hasn't been as dominate as would be expected of the highest rated player in the 2015 rankings. He has put up solid numbers every season at Colorado, but he only accounted for more than 30 tackles once and has never had six sacks in a season. Even though defensive tackles aren't known for racking up stats left and right we expected more out of Medley.

    Thank you for coming again on such short notice. After a season in which we did not perform quite up to expectations, I set out to find a new Head Coach that can bring us to the next level with the immense talent we have on the team. I am happy to announce that our search ended incredibly fruitfully. Texas A&M coach, Smckenz3, has put pen to paper on his new contract to become the Head Coach of the Kansas City Chiefs. He has burst onto the college scene, beginning towards the end of last season. He turned a struggling team around, leading the Aggies to a 3 game win streak to close the year last year, and getting them into the top 25 this year. He has coached very well this season for the Aggies, with most of his losses coming to highly touted squads by narrow margins. He was a top candidate when I set out on our search. We are both available for questions at this time.

    Deathcpo's mock draft

    I might do more, no promises. Cleveland- 83 ILB Christian Haywood 6-3 243 R Arizona [Pass Man-to-Man] This is a tough one, Cleveland doesn’t need a QB, DE, OT, or OLB, which accounts for many of the elite players in this draft class. They do however need RB and FS but I don’t see them spending the first overall pick on either. Haywood is the only player in the draft at a need position for Cleveland that wouldn’t be a reach at #1. The secondary was problematic this year, but their cb1 did progress to an 81. It’s possible they go CB here but honestly if I was Cleveland I’d look to trade down, last year the trade for the #1 overall pick turned worked great for both parties. Moving down to 10-15 would allow them a shot at one of the top OLs, RBs, and maybe Prince McGill which would all be solid pickups at the positions they need first round talent at. Plus they pickup whatever else in the trade. Jacksonville- 81 CB Troy Marshall 6-1 163 R Texas [Zone Coverage] This one was just as tough as Cleveland. I could totally see the Jags take Early Davis here but their pass defense last year was absolutely atrocious. Part of it could be blame on a pass rush that only produced 14 sacks last season. But when you’re dead last in pass yards allowed and your CBs only combined for 1int on the year, you pretty much have no choice. This is another pick I would not be surprised to see traded down, however it’s pretty paramount that JAX gets help in the secondary and it may not be wise to leave a player like Marshall on the table. Arizona- 83 DE Early Davis 6-3 259 R Georgia [Run Stop] Okay wow these first few teams are dumpster fires, but none have as many gaping holes as Arizona, Randye and Ted certainly have their work cut out from them, both have had great past accomplishments and I expect they will keep the same tradition at Arizona. Knowing Randye, I once again, I know I’m doing it AGAIN I think they will try and trade back. This team has so many holes they needs as many draft picks as they can get. Even if they go Early Davis like projected, they’re front 7 is still bottom in the league. Davis is a truly elite player who should help improve the run and pass defense for this Arizona team that’s dead terrible at both. He will be able to set the edge even against veteran tackles to help stop the bleeding for a defense that was dead last by a mile in rushing yards allowed per game last year, 160 per game, at 31st was ATL at 112. It should also boost a pass rush that only netted a pitiful 9 sacks, that's 1.5 less then Early had this year at UGA. Atlanta- 81 DT David Medley 6-7 310 R Colorado [Run Stop] The falcons are going to be sad to see Davis gone at this point. Dline is the top need for this team. I think it’s a bit of a reach at this point and I don’t want to say they will trade back any more so I think they have to go Medley here. With Haywood off the board too already there isn’t any truly elite talent at their biggest needs. Medley is a great player none the less and should certainly help clog up those running lanes next year for Atlanta. Buffalo- 82 QB Matty Swift 5-11 198 R Texas A&M [Pocket] Before seeing the combine, Swift has to be the top QB on the board. He has great stats, and is truly battle tested, playing one of the most gruesome schedules in cfb. He also has faced and excelled in adversity both on the field and off due to instability at A&M. Some critics believe Jankowski makes it easy for him, but I’d have to disagree I think they’re both good players and given Buffalos terrible decisions at QB recently, I think they make the right one here and draft a franchise QB that’s ready to go on day 1. Baltimore- 82 QB Alex Leshoure 6-1 205 R Boston College [Pocket] Reggie Watkins is serviceable but Baltimore is going to find itself in awkward position in the draft where all their needs are going to be reaches. This offense is on life support and needs a play maker. Though the offensive line was abysmal last year, a lot of it had to do with injuries and Baltimore is pretty set at OT right now which is the only OL available that wouldn’t be a reach. The defense was pretty good last year. CB might be a consideration for the Ravens but I think the offense needs to be addressed first and foremost. A new face could revitalize this franchise and Watkins isn’t getting any better. Leshoure looks like a long term bet at QB. I see him as more of a development guy who is going to be just average his first couple years but has a high ceiling with experience. This would be a good long term approach to rebuilding this team. It might also pay to invest in Sowell as Brooker T. appears to be on the downswing. Houston- 83 RB Asante Sowell 6-3 194 R Wisconsin [Power] Pending TJ progression could determine whether or not Houston drafts QB. With King still on the board the opportunity is there to grab the last of the top prospects at QB. Seeing as they just drafted TJ last year, I think they shy away. He had a “rookie” type year and he has virtually no run game to lean on. The pressure was always on him to win games and frankly he just isn’t ready. Next year he will be a year older and perhaps slightly better? With that said I think Asante Sowell is the pick here. Houston needs to give TJ some help, Sowell is the answer. Sowell is good in pass pro, and is one of the best RB prospects in sim history. He should fit perfectly into their offense. Houston- 80 CB Aaron Stiles 5-11 180 R Tennessee [Man Coverage] I think it would be smart for Houston to upgrade the interior O-line and invest in Sowell but defense is more pressing right now. If Houston is smart I think they use this pick on defense and still get an elite blocker for Sowell by grabbing one of top FBs a little later on. It’s hard to say where they will go, they need CB, DE, OLB, and maybe SS. CB seems like the one they need the most followed by OLB and DE. I like Stiles here, who is the #2 CB on my board pre combine. He has faced many top tier quarterbacks this season including being tasked with covering Adrian Jankowski with Matty Swift tossing him the ball. I think that experience plus his production sets him apart from the other CBs Minnesota- 81 CB Ian Garner 6-0 199 R Minnesota [Zone Coverage] As it stands now CB is the glaring hole in this team. With me and the new crew rolling up in here we are going to try and make some changes but until we make something happen in the trading market, CB has to be the pick here. We are fortunate enough to grab Garner who is a home town hero, scheme fit and Elite player who will immediately contribute. Steelers- 83 OT Mike Woods 6-2 317 R Michigan State [Pass Blocking] Easy pick here, the Steelers believe in Corp so I don’t think they will draft King. Their O-line has been terrible and nabbing an OT this good, this late is a Godsend for this organization. This should be a tremendous impact in 2019 and a great investment in the franchise.

Bad. The Bills have a lot of talent on offense with Taylor, Watkins, Shady, and a pretty solid offensive line, but with Chris Hogan leaving for New England and Harvin hanging up the cleats, the Bills need to get Tyrod another target to help this team take the next step. While Josh Doctson gets a hard look here, I like Treadwell's size advantage. While he may struggle with some of the deeper routes, he would be an awesome weapon to have underneath while Watkins is running defenders deep all over the field. Given that they have a solid #1 target, Treadwell will have the advantage of facing off against most teams weaker corner back, which should allow him to use his size and solid route running to overcome some of his weaknesses out of the gate and develop into quite a scary weapon for this Bills offense. ~ Pick made by fever_ful New York Jets The Jets select Paxton Lynch, QB, Memphis The Jets really could have used an edge rusher with this pick but no one left at this point screams first round potential (The case could be made for Ogbah, but eh). Obviously, the QB situation right now in New York is not ideal. Fitz still hasn't resigned, Geno is Geno, and Bryce Petty probably is not ready and may never be. I'm not a huge Lynch fan, but this is a very feasible pick. Assuming Fitz is not brought back, Lynch would start and would have the pieces around him to succeed with Forte, Marshall, and Decker. The line is a bit concerning, but Lynch is a decent prospect to build around and 20 isn't exactly a reach for a player of his potential. He honestly could end up being the best QB in this class (going off of this mock) because of the pieces around him and the stability of this organization. ~ Pick made by grv413

    Mock Draft Picks 19-20

    Buffalo Bills - Treadwell was the best player available with a team need. It was either him or DT Chris Jones as the best picks for this spot. Grade - A New York Jets - QB is the biggest need for the Jets but I'm not sold on Lynch long-term and they have a need at OT, my pick would have been OT Taylor Decker. Lynch is a reach at this spot, IMO. Grade - C.

    Thank you! Although it would have been an honor to be involved with an organization with as much success as the Dolphins, I've not been approached by anyone to work in that organization. "Mimzy" approached me, we discussed ideas for the future, and it just seemed like a great fit. I'm excited to be here in Kansas City - I think we have a really good shot at getting into the playoffs next year. I think it's no secret that I love coaching Matty and Jank, they are great players who allow me to run a few different offensive game plans. However great coaches should be able to tailor a game plan to the pieces they have, and adapt to ultimately be successful. I plan on spending the off-season studying up on the players we have here in Kansas City and ultimately finding the best approach, with the players we have, for us to be successful. I also have faith that Mimzy and I will work together to help identify potential areas of need and bring in players that match my preferred style of attack.

    Hello everyone, and thank you for gathering for this quick announcement. As the owner of the Kansas City Chiefs, it pains me to announce that our DOPP, DeanDean, has been relieved of his duties in order to allow him to seek new opportunities. With the GM position being permanently filled by myself, it was seen as a hinderance to his development. We both agreed he should move on to somewhere that will allow him new exposure to different methodologies and, more importantly, somewhere where there is opportunity for upward mobility. I wish him immense luck and good fortune in his new position, wherever that may be. I will now take questions.

    Adrian Jankowski is suiting up for his final game when the Aggies play in their bowl game. Posted by Jimmy Wexler - The Eagle COLLEGE STATION - In college football, it’s a fact that most players come and they go, and that’s just the way it is. However there are those few who never leave. Their spectacular careers live on in legend and are celebrated by fans, their stories are passed down through generations. Their pictures live on through facility walls, their great moments remembered in game-programs, and t-shirts and jerseys continue on throughout time. Success helps us to remember the great ones, but that’s not the only criterion it’s also how they carry themselves, showing a humbleness and humility that allows us to relate to them. Then showing a ferocity and passion on the field that makes us feel as if they are going to battle for us. Adrian Jankowski is and will always be one of Texas A&M’s most prized possessions. A tall and lanky receiver out of Euless, TX who was considered a good receiver but nowhere near the best in his class, happened the be the same young man who was a perfect match for College Station and their new undersized prized quarterback recruit. Fred Biletnikoff Award winner as a freshman, two-time All-American, CFBHC’s all-time leading receiver warrants a great deal of respect, but in College Station, respect is barely the way Adrian Jankowski is viewed. Instead if there were a Mount Rushmore of Aggie athletes, Jankowski would firmly be entrenched as one of the four to be featured. With that being said – Saturday’s victory over Ole Miss is the last time Aggie-faithful will get to watch Jankowski suit up in a regular season game. All that remains is whatever bowl the Aggies get invited to, and it is during this time that we as fan must cherish how lucky we are to have witnessed such humble greatness. “My Freshman year was so much fun,” Jankowski said, “Matty and I kind of came on the scene together and instantly clicked.” Greatness exuded from Jankowski that year as he teamed up with Swift to lead the Aggies to an 11 win season including a 76-3 drubbing of TCU where he had the type of game in which legends are remembered. Jankowski torched the Frog defense for an astonishing 19 receptions for 335 yards and 2 touchdowns in what is simply known as “The Game” in College Station. “That game was a lot of fun,” Jankowski said, “We had squeaked by in a few of our prior games and I just had this focus to win and focus to make the crowd proud and everything just clicked.” Life hasn’t always been easy for Jankowski in College Station however, and the turmoil around the Aggie program really had an effect on the young receiver. “Coming into my sophomore year, with the sudden disappearance of coach, we just really didn’t have a lot of direction that year. I just felt I really let the team down, the fans down, the community down, and vowed personally to never let it happen again.” Jankowski said with obvious pain in his face, we all remember the 2016 and first half of the 2017 season where the Aggie administration couldn’t find a coach and our boys had no guidance. However they never stopped competing – they never stopped representing the Maroon and White with everything they had. Even without a coach for the better part of the 2017 season Jankowski rebounded with a spectacular 102 catch season where he grabbed 12 touchdowns and piled up 1,403 total receiving yards, added another All-American honor to his resume and finished the season as a Heisman and Biletnikoff finalist. In week 11 of the season, when the Aggies finally found coach Smackems, Jankowski exploded for 15 catches, 277 yards, and 2 TDs. “We finally had a game-plan and I was just so excited to go out and play” Jankowski recollects about the game. These are the moments we remember. Coming into the season the question was not whether Jankowski and the Aggies would be successful, but rather how successful would they be? “We finally had a coach and the pieces were in place – I really want us to end on a high note and give the fans something to be excited about.” Jankowski said about the season, “I’m glad Matty is finally getting the recognition he deserves I would be crazy if I didn’t think that I wouldn’t be where I am today without having such a great QB – we have always just been in sync.” These are the qualities that make Jankowski so beloved in College Station; he’s built on humble greatness and ferocity on the field. Coach Smackems added “Adrian works so hard, he doesn’t crave the spotlight, but damn if he won’t crush you on the field. He’s got the drive and determination to be the best WR to ever play, and yet his desire to win goes so much beyond just winning for himself.” These are the things that make Jankowski an Aggie legend. “I love College Station and I love Texas A&M, I’ve been so blessed to call it my home the past four years”. No, Adrian – it’s been a blessing to have you the past four years. Aggie fans, when you are deciding on whether to pick up tickets to our first bowl game in three years – remember this. This will be the last time you will see one of the greatest Aggies ever put on the Maroon and White – which brings me to my final question – Where were you when Adrian Jankowski played his last game?
