  1. Oh, you want shakeups? We got your shakeups! Oregon upsetting USC threw everything into chaos, so how did this week's Table of Questionable Worth look after the dust settled? Remember: If you don't like where you are, blame the numbers. Pac-12 Power Ranking after Week 6 Rank (Poll Pts.) Team (First Place Votes) Record (Conf. Record) Streak Change from Last Week 1 (109) Stanford Cardinal (3) 3-1 (3-0) W3 +1 2 (105) Oregon Ducks (2) 4-1 (1-1) W1 +2 3 (101) USC Trojans (2) 4-1 (1-1) L1 -2 4 (92) Washington Huskies 4-1 (1-1) W3 -1 5 (84) Arizona Wildcats (2) 5-0 (2-0) W5 +1 6 (77) Colorado Buffaloes (1) 3-1 (1-1) W2 -1 7 (54) Washington State Cougars 3-2 (1-2) W1 +1 8 (51) Arizona State Sun Devils 2-2 (1-1) W1 -1 9 (47) UCLA Bruins 3-2 (1-1) W3 - 10 (29) California Golden Bears 2-2 (1-2) L1 - 11 (17) Oregon State Beavers 2-3 (0-2) L3 - 12 (14) Utah Utes 1-3 (0-3) L3 - Number of voters: 10 12 points awarded for first, 11 for second, etc. And then, the weekly Tracker: Look at those first-place votes. LOOK AT THEM. So much disagreement! Out of that battle royale the Tree emerges on top, but it's a giant cluster. The only team without a first-place vote are the Huskies who still placed fourth, ahead of two first-place recipients. You could pretty much throw any of those first-place vote getters at #1 and make a reasonable argument for them. But you can start seeing a delineation between the top and bottom halves of the Table - see that point differential between #6 Colorado and #7 Wazzu. Of course, we don't expect this delineation to continue as the season continues and the teams of the PAC continue to beat up on each other, or at least for this demarcation line to shift downward. This week's games: (4-0) at (3-1) (non-conf) (1-3) at (4-0) (non-conf) (2-2) at (3-2) (4-1) at (2-2) (3-1) at (3-2) Byes: (5-0), (2-3), (4-1), (4-1) The P12 Network's Pick to Click?  #3 at #16. If we told you before the season that this Saturday evening matchup features a Heisman hopeful, you'd probably think it was Oklahoma's Maurice White. But instead it's Stanford's Troy McMurray that has the chance to make the high-profile statement. The Sooners' "easy" OOC game isn't looking so easy now!

    [CFBHC/NFLHC] Available Teams

    Updated December 16 Remember: Conference commissioners have final say in approving prospective coaches to jobs. First come does not guarantee first serve, although it may be a factor. Available jobs: Atlantic Coast Conference Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets* @statsheetstuffer Big Ten Conference Wisconsin Badgers* @taffyowner Mountain West Conference New Mexico Lobos* @Dean_Craig_Pelton Wyoming Cowboys Pacific-12 Conference California Golden Bears Washington State Cougars Southeastern Conference Kentucky Wildcats Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Eastern Washington Eagles New Hampshire Wildcats South Dakota State Jackrabbits Youngstown State Penguins If a team has an asterisk, it is open due to missing two weeks of recruiting or doing it incorrectly (not spending all your weekly points, putting too many points, etc.). You may need to appeal to your commissioner and Soluna if you coach a team on this list and have mitigating circumstances. PSA: Unless you are a frequent poster/shoutboxer, DO NOT login anonymously. Doing this if you are an infrequent/rare poster makes it look like you are not actively coaching (haven't logged on in 14 days), and your team could erroneously get put on this list.
  4. Welcome back, everyone! This was a week of extremes for the Conference of Champions; while some schools celebrated big signings and big strides up the recruiting rankings, nearly as many had quiet fax machines and no commits this week. Which category does YOUR favorite school fall into? Let's find out! National Rankings: Conference Average Rank: 66.42 (+1.5) Committed Recruits (by potential) >=3.0 star recruits Tot.

Looking Forward: Still those four main UCLA targets we're watching, with the big one being SS Akil Flowers. They haven't been able to shake San Jose State; indeed the Spartans look to have closed the gap somewhat.   Oregon Ducks (National Rank: 19) (-1) CB Kayvon Harris 5-11 177 Fr Mission Hills (San Marcos CA) 2.0 of 5.0 [Man Coverage] RB Luke Cleary 5-6 231 Fr Elmira (Elmira OR) 3.0 of 4.5 [Power] WR Major Bryant 5-9 157 Fr Jordan Valley (Jordan Valley OR) 1.5 of 3.5 [Speed] ILB Carlos Ramirez 6-2 246 Fr Paisley (Paisley OR) 1.5 of 5.0 [Mike] DE Sebastian Austin 6-2 240 Fr Golden Valley (Merced CA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Blitz] SS Taye Williams 6-2 206 Fr Mission Hills (San Marcos CA) 1.5 of 5.0 [Zone Coverage] ILB Harrison Kyle 6-1 213 Fr Powers (Powers OR) 1.0 of 3.5 [Will] DE Jaivon Jordan 6-5 268 Fr Salem Academy (Salem OR) 1.0 of 3.5 [Contain] DT Brayden Westbrook 6-7 307 Fr Blue Ridge (Lakeside AZ) 1.0 of 4.0 [1-Gap] This Week: A pair of local products for the Ducks this week in Kyle and Jordan, who chose Oregon over the Beavers. But the bigger prize is monstrous Arizona tackle Brayden Westbrook. Looking Forward: Only a couple of local battles that we could find, one with the OSU Beavers for offensive tackle Gregory Beaty, and one across the northern border for Washington defensive tackle Andrew McDermott with the OSU Cowboys (yes, Oklahoma State).  Utah Utes (National Rank: 20) (+2) DE Joseph Blackmon 6-3 267 Fr Pioneer (Whittier CA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Contain] QB Finn Leonard 6-3 196 Fr Hunter (West Valley City UT) 2.5 of 5.0 [Pocket] RB Bronson Love 6-1 215 Fr Orange Glen (Escondido CA) 1.0 of 4.5 [Power] SS Shaun Blackmon 5-10 201 Fr West Covina (West Covina CA) 1.0 of 4.5 [Man Coverage] OLB Alex Odom 6-4 226 Fr Grand County (Moab UT) 1.0 of 4.5 [Blitz] WR Dahntay Hayes 6-0 175 Fr Duncan (Duncan AZ) 1.0 of 4.0 [Speed] OG Ashley Church 6-6 265 Fr Catalina Magnet (Tucson AZ) 1.0 of 4.0 [Run Blocking] ILB William Hollis 6-4 228 Fr Valley (Bakersfield CA) 1.0 of 4.0 [Mike] This Week: Pac-12 Recruiting News: We highlight, Utah signs, apparently. Arizona guard Ashley Church and Cali linebacker Mike Hollis, both 4-stars, sign after showing up in this space last week. The Utes coaching staff continues to be impressive in recruiting, leveraging their playoff experience expertly. Looking Forward: Sorry UCLA and USC, the next name we're putting here is OT Robert Mackey. Utah jumped into the lead for his services over the weekend, although this could be the hardest battle the Utes could have on a recruit yet. Will @Kirby be able to continue his impressive recruiting win streak, or do the California schools have something to say about that? Washington Huskies (National Rank: 21) (+8) C James Marlow 6-4 283 Fr Shelton (Shelton WA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] CB Luke Barfield 6-1 204 Fr Needles (Needles CA) 1.5 of 3.5 [Man Coverage] DE Cassius Garner 6-3 247 Fr Tekoa-Oakesdale (Oakesdale WA) 1.0 of 5.0 [Blitz] DT Alexander Hamilton 6-6 300 Fr Capital (Olympia WA) 1.0 of 4.5 [2-Gap] DT Khalil Prince 6-3 308 Fr Charles Wright (Tacoma WA) 1.0 of 4.0 [1-Gap] FB Joseph Mixon 6-0 232 Fr Pottsboro (Pottsboro TX) 1.5 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] OLB Corey Goodson 6-0 215 Fr Greenhill (Dallas TX) 1.0 of 3.5 [Coverage] QB Spencer Boland 6-2 201 Fr Harrisburg (Harrisburg OR) 2.5 of 3.5 [Hybrid] RB Kevin Beasley 5-8 205 Fr Olympic Heights (Boca Raton FL) 1.0 of 3.5 [Speed] SS Jackson Stuckey 5-11 178 Fr Wilcox County (Rochelle GA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Zone Coverage] OT Sawyer Randall Jr. 6-1 297 Fr Tekoa-Oakesdale (Oakesdale WA) 3.0 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] OG Filip Decker 6-4 263 Fr Munroe Day (Quincy FL) 1.0 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] OLB Mohamed Greco 6-2 218 Fr Sinton (Sinton TX) 3.0 of 3.0 [Coverage] TE Prince Irving 6-2 225 Fr Shelton (Shelton WA) 1.5 of 4.0 [Receiving] ILB Jake Bruce 6-4 239 Fr Renton (Renton WA) 1.0 of 4.5 [Mike] WR Kirk Powers 6-1 210 Fr Tekoa-Oakesdale (Oakesdale WA) 1.0 of 4.0 [Target] This Week: The biggest class in the Pac-12 gets a bit bigger as a couple of big targets sign. While many experts expected Bruce to sign with the Huskies, they were probably caught off-guard by Kirk Powers following his high school teammate Cassius Garner to Montlake instead of heading to the Palouse. Not everything was sunshine and lollipops in Seattle though, as they lost out on RB Max Olson to the Trojans. Looking Forward: The Watch continues. Strong Safety D'Onta Streeter is easily the biggest fish for Washington to land and it looks to only be a matter of time until he commits, but the Husky faithful are going to be on pins and needles until then. There's also Hawaiian punter Kaholo Siula who is considering playing for UW. USC Trojans (National Rank: 46) (+22) ATH Delontey Muhammad 6-4 302 Fr Golden Valley (Merced CA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Run Blocking] QB Riley Sharp 6-2 205 Fr Mater Dei (Santa Ana CA) 1.5 of 5.0 [Pocket] WR Brandon Willis 5-10 175 Fr East Bakersfield (Bakersfield CA) 2.5 of 5.0 [Speed] WR DeMarcus Dickens 6-1 214 Fr Eastlake (Chula Vista CA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Target] OLB Cory Jenkins 6-4 229 Fr Hilltop (Chula Vista CA) 1.5 of 4.0 [Coverage] RB Max Olson 5-10 224 Fr Fontana (Fontana CA) 1.0 of 4.5 [Power] FS Bradley Cotton 5-11 197 Fr Notre Dame (Sherman Oaks CA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Zone Coverage] OG Jamir Newton 6-5 300 Fr Argonaut (Jackson CA) 1.0 of 4.5 [Pass Blocking] This Week: We told you it would only be a matter of time. A trio of signings for the Men of Troy, headlined by tailback Max Olson who chose them over Washington. But guard Jamir Newton is no slouch either and he chose USC over SDSU. Looking Forward: So OT Robert Mackey and CB Tyshaun Graves, we've talked about them for weeks. Are these the players coach @Jumbo will focus on now? USC is neck-and-neck with UCLA for Graves, and Utah's the new challenger for Mackey Arizona Wildcats (National Rank: 59) (+22) FS Damione Parham 5-11 206 Fr Temecula Valley (Temecula CA) 1.0 of 4.5 [Man Coverage] ILB Cooper Hinton 6-4 262 Fr Sonoma Valley (Sonoma CA) 1.0 of 4.0 [Mike] QB Tevin Rodriguez 6-2 205 Fr Hopi (Kearns Canyon AZ) 1.5 of 4.5 [Pocket] CB Jermon Ellis 5-9 195 Fr Needles (Needles CA) 1.0 of 4.0 [Zone Coverage] This Week: Like his older brother TRod, TevRod is a Wildcat. Arizona now has their QBOTF, who could even get a long look as a starter next year. But Jermon Ellis could be just as important, with both of their starting CBs graduating (including all-everything Eric Hall) the Wildcats needed to replenish their secondary. Looking Forward: RB Jerrick Blount looks like the biggest battle both Arizona schools are involved in, but California Will LB Christopher Moses isn't far behind in that regard. Arizona State Sun Devils (National Rank: 69)(nice) (+19) OT Cole Rutledge 6-5 262 Fr Mountain View (Mesa AZ) 1.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] SS Cordell Glenn 6-1 221 Fr Chandler (Chandler AZ) 1.5 of 4.5 [Zone Coverage] FB Brandon Sutton 5-9 210 Fr Edison (Stockton CA) 1.5 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] FS Devon Tyler 5-10 200 Fr Chula Vista (Chula Vista CA) 2.5 of 3.0 [Zone Coverage] TE Jesse Schneider 6-1 225 Fr Desert (Edwards CA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Blocking] LS Alex Coyle 6-1 250 Fr Artesia (Artesia NM) 2.0 of 4.5 [Specialized] TE Dylan Erickson 6-1 203 Fr The Orme School (Mayer AZ) 1.0 of 4.0 [Receiving] This Week: Some badly-needed bodies signed with the Sun Devils this weekend, led by local TE Dylan Erickson and New Mexico specialist Coyle. Erickson plus the bodies (even if most of them are depth) are enough to push Sparky up to the upper half of the rankings. Looking Forward: See: Arizona above. Stanford Cardinal (National Rank: 78) (-5) DT Ronnie Lyles 6-7 291 Fr Williams (Williams CA) 2.0 of 3.5 [1-Gap] FB Tierre Muse 5-11 210 Fr Glendale (Glendale CA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Run Blocking] ILB Juan Garza 6-3 226 Fr Williams (Williams CA) 1.5 of 4.0 [Mike] ILB Jamari Amos 6-1 250 Fr West Covina (West Covina CA) 2.5 of 3.5 [Mike] OT Dean Rupp 6-2 331 Fr Fontana (Fontana CA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Run Blocking] OT Lahahana Sapa 6-7 258 Fr Serra (San Diego CA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] SS Joshua St. John 5-10 192 Fr Avenal (Avenal CA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Zone Coverage] TE Cameron Childs 6-3 243 Fr Mt. Diablo (Concord CA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Blocking] WR Justin Mixon 5-9 196 Fr Golden Valley (Merced CA) 1.5 of 3.5 [Speed] QB Stephen White 6-2 204 Fr Liberty (Bakersfield CA) 1.0 of 4.0 [Scrambling] This Week: Still nothing this week. Looking Forward: With two weeks of no signings and limited resources, Stanford may need to make some tough decisions on who they prioritize. Will it be RB Da'Quan McGee (trailing Air Force and SDSU), guard Riley Hatch-Connell (losing to Nevada), punter Kaholo Siula (behind Washington) or free safety Branden Bonner (leading Oregon State)? Bonner would seem to be their best chance at a signee, but is that the position the Cardinal feel they need the most?  Oregon State Beavers (National Rank: 81) (-5) DT Tavarreus Banks 6-6 310 Fr Lewiston (Lewiston ID) 3.0 of 3.0 [1-Gap] FS Julius Seay 6-2 205 Fr Lompoc (Lompoc CA) 1.0 of 4.0 [Man Coverage] P Quinn Dobson 6-2 198 Fr Murtaugh (Murtaugh ID) 1.0 of 4.5 [Power] WR Matthew Hooper 5-11 189 Fr Amite (Amite LA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Speed] TE Jay Snead 6-1 227 Fr Wheeler (Fossil OR) 1.0 of 4.0 [Blocking] This Week: Unfortunately another Pac-12 school with no signees this week. Looking Forward: The Beavers lost out on SS Coleridge Beverly and DE Jaivon Jordan, but virtually everything else from last week remains the same. Oregon State is trailing Boise and Wazzu for Idaho blue-chipper Kevin Manley and Stanford for FS Branden Bonner, but lead Oregon for local DT John Drew. Like Stanford, the Beavs may have to think about prioritizing their recruiting battles. California Golden Bears (National Rank: 107) (+21) CB DeMarcus William 6-0 186 Fr Temecula Valley (Temecula CA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Man Coverage] OG Kenneth Joseph Jr. 6-2 258 Fr De La Salle (Concord CA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Run Blocking] C Mateo Hathaway 6-4 269 Fr Renton (Renton WA) 2.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] K Marco Belcher 5-10 161 Fr West Valley (Hemet CA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Accuracy] OT Patrick Carlton 6-3 281 Fr Valley Christian (San Jose CA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] DE Sincere Brinson 6-6 240 Fr Hayfork (Hayfork CA) 1.5 of 3.0 [Contain] SS Coleridge Beverly 5-10 195 Fr Chula Vista (Chula Vista CA) 1.0 of 4.0 [Man Coverage] This Week: A vital signing for Cal in Beverly, who should hold down that backend position for 2-3 years after a probable redshirt. Beverly's signing alone boosts Cal's rankings significantly but they still have work to do. Looking Forward: The Golden Bears trail Colorado for both QB Chris Breaux and RB Cayden Crawley, and they still trail Wazzu for OLB Marc Crawley. They've also reached out to in-state tackle Oscar Salcedo, but the SDSU Aztecs look to have a comfortable lead there.  Colorado Buffaloes (National Rank: 108) (-8) OG Brett Hanks 6-2 277 Fr Coronado (Colorado Springs CO) 3.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] RB Charone Dyson 5-6 195 Fr Falcon (Falcon CO) 1.0 of 3.0 [Power] TE Thomas Braxton 6-4 192 Fr Mammoth (Mammoth Lakes CA) 1.0 of 3.5 [Receiving] FS Cameron Ellington 5-11 194 Fr Elizabeth (Elizabeth CO) 1.0 of 4.0 [Man Coverage] This Week: The fourth team we've covered with no new signings this week. Looking Forward: But Colorado leads Cal on the pair of prospects we mentioned above. They still trail on Coronado HS Jay Henley, and both the Air Force Falcons and Colorado State Rams are pushing hard for the big defensive end's services. Washington State Cougars (National Rank: 142) (-) DE Bryan Sykes 6-5 269 Fr Charles Wright (Tacoma WA) 1.0 of 3.0 [Blitz] This Week: Are the Cougs Cougin' it? Perhaps. At least they gained the ground on the Boise State Broncos for center Kevin Manley they lost when trying to win back ILB Jake Bruce, and they've put themselves in the driver's seat for DT D'Marreio Smart. But overall, another not-good week for the boys in Pullman. Looking Forward: They're holding serve on prospects such as guards Dante Bond (Las Vegas, NV) and Tacoma product Roger Bravo. Getting Smart to sign next week would be a huge weight off their shoulders, but Wazzu has a TON of work ahead of them and not that much time left.  Thanks for coming by, everyone. On behalf of everyone at the Pac-12 Network, we wish you good times and happy crooting!

    [2022] UConn Week 7 Postgame Presser

    Coach, Gavin Faulk had another good game and is obviously a huge part of your offense, but he can't do everything by himself. How do you plan to improve the rest of the offense?

    Suggestions / Improvements

    2022 CFBHC recruiting rankings now on wiki (http://cfbhc.com/wiki/index.php?title=2022_CFBHC_Recruiting_Rankings), conference column added for sorting purposes.
  9. I... I really thought this wouldn't take as long as it did. Oops. Previous picks as found here. Also, one change from previous mock: I do not have ILB Soldier Brooks, RB Sean Meade, or DE Jamari Callahan declaring. (* denotes early declaration) New England Patriots: RB Solomon McLaughlin, .* TWIST! This was Marcus Black at first but Reggie Watkins is still owed $12M guaranteed in 2023, the Pats run game is near-catatonic, and there are some really good QBs in 2024's draft. If NE is willing to sit their #1 pick for a year this could still be Black but I think NE takes the best RB prospect since the last one ever. -Previous pick: Eric McLean, QB, Rice (pick #5) Los Angeles Rams: CB Eric Hall, . I never thought I'd have the Rams up this high in any mock draft ever, but this is the world we live in. At least they get to address that constant sore spot of theirs with the consensus best CB on the board. -Previous pick: DeSean Barkley, CB, Colorado (#6) Arizona Cardinals: QB Marcus Black, . Happy now, @cultur3? You got your man-crush. This really does make a lot of sense though, with The Paul Davenport Experience only signed through 2023 and at only about 3.6M gtd. to boot. -Previous pick: Samuel Gulla, WR, USC (#21) Chicago Bears: OT Alex Vasili, . NFLHC Draft Truisms: Bears = OT, it is known. But especially after losing a couple of linemen and the Jets hosting a sack party at MoFo's place? Yeah. I'll defer to @stormstopper to decide if TCU's Tyson Chadwick is the better call as he's seen him up close for several seasons now. -Previous pick: Jamari Callahan, DE, Kansas (#4) San Francisco 49ers: RB Jamel Trufant, . We're seeing what the Niners can do without Todd Lester, and it isn't pretty. Starting RB Troy McCray isn't happy and I don't think San Fran is thrilled with him either, so why not reset with the best RB (non-Solomon division) out there? -Previous pick: Jamari Callahan, DE, Kansas (#4) Los Angeles Chargers: QB Eric McLean, . I really feel like @pumph wants to give Matty Swift another year, but with Swift's contract up after 2022 this feels like a natural time to part ways. A 12/8 TD/INT ratio, 58.45 completion % and a QBR just under 81 isn't helping Matty's case, and with help on the line (Noah Barney) and at WR (Greg Cobb) added this offseason you can't say the Bolts didn't give the offense help. -Previous pick: Marcus Black, QB, Auburn (#1) New York Giants: QB Bryce Thompson, .* The G-Men are starting Will Thompson and/or Lawyer Johnson this year. Good QB value can be found in the 2nd, but with QB being the Giants' biggest need IMO I don't think you play around with this pick. -Previous pick: Bryce Thompson, QB, Duke (#8) Minnesota Vikings: DE Deontre Graham, . 1st round DEs in consecutive years? Sure, why not? They could use a offensive tackle as an eventual replacement for MacKenzie Woods, but their defensive line still needs a lot of work and there isn't a DT worth taking at this spot. Graham currently leads CFBHC with 7.5 sacks, so Minny reunites him with Smallwood to wreak havoc on the edges and finds an OT in the 2nd. -Previous pick: Alex Vasili, OT, Penn State (#10) Denver Broncos: CB Jordan Westbrook, . If there's any bright side to the Todd Jennings injury torpedoing the Broncos' season, it's that they should get their pick of nearly any CB they want to address a long-running sore spot. This could be any number of players including the local product DeSean Barkley, but I'll move Westbrook up this time around. -Previous pick: Jordan Westbrook, CB, Purdue (#18) New York Jets: RB Maurice White, . RIP The Legend of Manny Fields. We'll always have that one game where you had like 100 receiving yards. But I'm sure the Jets would love to have a stable ground game for once and take some pressure off of Wegert. -Previous pick: Jamal Trufant, RB, Wisconsin (#7) Indianapolis Colts: CB DeSean Barkley, . Yes, they still need a running game. But they also exist in a division with strong passing games and they don't have much in the secondary. -Previous pick: Maurice White, RB, Oklahoma (#9) Cleveland Browns: CB Zion Evans, . Evans is having a fine start to the season with 4 picks and 5 PD, and is likely to be one of the top - if not the top - Zone Coverage-style corners out there. -Previous pick: Zion Evans, CB, Michigan (#23) Buffalo Bills: ILB Devin Frazier, . Has Marshawn Matthison turned a corner? Maybe, maybe not. But the Bills may be willing to give him another year to find out. Meanwhile, they plug that hole in the middle of their defense with BOFA's top-rated middle linebacker. -Previous pick: Gabe Ciamo, RB, Toledo (#20) Philadelphia Eagles: WR Gavin Faulk, . This is kind of a tough one. CB looks like the obvious call at first glance, but with two high-round picks spent over the last two years on this position I don't know if they go back to the well this early. They could also draft a DE to give opposing offenses someone else to worry about besides Ryan Frey as it seems Ulysses Smith is just a backup now, but we'll give the Eagles offense the draft's top WR (so far) to line up opposite Hawkins and move Cameron Whelahan to the slot. -Previous pick: Dominique Dawkins, ATH (CB/S), Georgia (#27) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: DE Tristan Priest, . Quote the Bucs HC: Anyone, DE, Anywhere. -Previous pick: Tristan Priest, DE, Texas (#13) Baltimore Ravens: ILB T.C. McGregor, . There's a few directions to possibly go, but we'll mock a Will LB here. Former Packer Peyton Roaches has not lived up to his first-round draft status and is a free agent after this year, and last year's 3rd-round pick Samuel Sands doesn't look like he's ready to start. -Previous pick: D.J. Wilkinson, C, Buffalo (#22) Cincinnati Bengals: CB M.K. Sharpe, . This could easily be a free safety such as UCF's James Munnerlyn or Clemson's Marquise Holliday. But safeties don't normally go this early, and of the five CBs on the Bengals roster, two are free agents. One of them is Aaron Stiles. They need players here. -Previous pick: M.K. Sharpe, CB, BYU (#16) Houston Texans: ILB Bradley Rainey, . Assuming the Miltrain (Brendan Milton) progresses well enough to hand him the starting job, RB doesn't seem like a priority for the Texans this time around (I know, I know....). FA signee Dick McCready is okay, but Rainey would be a massive upgrade to the position. I think the Texans believe enough in second-year man Shane Brinkley that they don't draft a CB here. -Previous pick: Simeon Wells, RB, Texas (#17) Dallas Cowboys: TE Garrett Taylor, . Erasmus High isn't terrible, but he may not be a good fit for the Cowboys new offensive scheme. There are other considerations such as DE Samir Sample but Garrett Taylor could be the best receiving TE the NFL has seen in some time, and Dallas can use another weapon to help Graham Burnett out. -Previous pick: A.J. Edwards, WR, Alabama (#19) Atlanta Falcons: ILB Sammy Dawkins, . Four inside linebackers in the first? Weird how that worked out. But outside of that other defensive need (you know, THAT one), MLB has been a Falcon need for a couple of seasons now. Wide receiver was also a consideration, but filling the middle was a bigger priority. -Previous pick: Soldier Brooks, ILB, Virginia (#14)* Kansas City: OG Jonah McCullough, . With Henry Badjanek considering retirement and Boyd Buckley no guarantee to return after this season, the Chiefs badly need another guard even after drafting Miguel Vela in the second last year. Without combine/pro day info it's near-impossible to say which guard is the top prospect, but we'll put the JuCo Spartan here as a nod to the remarkable offensive prowess Michigan State's shown this year. -Previous pick: Silolo Siula, OG, Utah Tennessee Titans (from NO): WR A.J. Edwards, . With both Tommy Furrey and Greg Newman ready to hang the cleats up, the Titans can use another pass-catcher. No one WR can do it by themselves, not even Kevin Fucking Williams. Edwards doesn't look to have the high ceiling that a Ryan Childs does, but he also looks like a steadier bet and his 6-4 frame lets him make contested catches in the red zone. For a team like Tennessee in its playoff window, that steady #2 with #1 potential is probably just what the doctor ordered. -Previous pick: Tyler Toney, DE, Arizona (#32) NOTE: Previous mock had this pick still going to New Orleans. Jacksonville Jaguars: ATH Dominique Dawkins, . At this point you could probably substitute your preferred CB of choice and it would be fine. Mocking Dawkins here as his positional versatility may appeal to the Jags, and he's talented enough that it shouldn't affect his learning curve very much. -Previous pick: Blaine Lewis-Thompson, CB, California (#31) Detroit Lions: FS Marquise Holliday, . For as good as the Lions have looked, there's a pretty decent hole at the top of their coverage scheme and Holliday would fill it quite nicely. Having a rangy safety like Holliday is pretty important when you expect to go against the likes of Jason Johnson and Christian Skaggs in the NFC playoffs. TE Garrett Taylor was also considered here, but Detroit may want to give Emory Johnson a shot if they move on from Anthony Fasani after this season. -Previous pick: Marquise Holliday, FS, Clemson (#28) Seattle Seahawks: OT Tyson Chadwick, . Seattle this high? How did this happen? Someone has to win the NFC West I suppose. This week, it's Seattle's turn. With the premium corners off the board at this point the Seahawks could look to shore up the right tackle position with 2021 ALL-AMERICAN TYSON CHADWICK. (Or if Da Bears took Chadwick insert Vasili here, either or.) -Previous pick: Eric Hall, CB, Arizona (#2) Las Vegas Raiders: OLB Ryan Bailey, . The Raiders don't have a ton of needs, but they could use more talented youth at the outside linebacker position where Alexander Baumgartner is just a guy. -Previous pick: Deontre Graham, DE, Alabama (#25) Carolina Panthers: CB Blaine Lewis-Thompson, . Jacoby Seaverns is thinking about retiring, has a $12M 2023 cap hit, and none of that is guaranteed. Sounds like there's a #2 CB spot opening up opposite Nate Tensi! BLT hasn't shown up much on the statsheets lately which is why he's at the bottom of the first, but his pedigree shows through from his prior years. -Previous pick: Donald Kendrick, OG, Tennessee (#11) Tennessee Titans: DE Tyrone Rivers, . Traded off Charles Woods? Good thing there's quite a few 3-4 DEs in this draft. Out of the remaining DEs Rivers has been the most productive so far (8 TKL, 3 TFL, 4.0 Sacks, 1 FF, 1 FR) with good size (6'4", 258) and so he gets the nod over Arizona's Tyler Toney and SDSU's Jeremy McKinney. -Previous pick: Sean Meade, RB, Auburn (#15)* Washington Redskins: DE Tyler Toney, . Toney could learn for a year behind Steven Jordan and Mike Hill before taking over for one of the soon-to-be 8th year pros (probably Hill). -Previous pick: Samir Sample, DE, Texas Tech (#24) Miami Dolphins: FS James Munnerlyn, . Munnerlyn - or LSU's Jeremy Whitehead, or Purdue's Gabriel Allen - would be an instant upgrade to current starter Ashton Britt. -Previous pick: Jeremy Whitehead, FS, LSU (#29) Green Bay: DE Samir Sample, . Both Barron Anthony and Kaulani Groth are getting up there in age and are in the last years of their contracts. Even with 2021 4th-rounder Cory Hall already there, more youth is needed off the edges. -Previous pick: Tyson Chadwick, OT, TCU (#26) Pittsburgh Steelers: DE Jeremy McKinney, . Carlos Washington has been doing MVP-level work, but I'm sure he'd appreciate not having double/triple-teams constantly rolled to his side. -Previous pick: Devon Braxton, CB, Texas (#30) Still on the board (not a complete list of 5.0s!): QB: Akiem Williams III (Clemson), Troy McMurray (Stanford), Josh Beckett (Georgia Tech) RB: Simeon Wells (Texas), Gabe Ciamo (Toledo) WR: Ryan Childs (Miss. St.), Samuel Gulla (USC) OT: Shane McCord (Georgia), Rafael Vitale (Nebraska), Riley Greenfield (WSU) OG: Silolo Siula (Utah), Charlie Cooper (Auburn) C: D.J. Wilkinson (Buffalo), Shawn Cortez (Marshall) DE: Zack Dockery (CSU) DT: Julius Mercer (Washington) ILB: Alexander Hutton (Michigan), Devin Ruff (Miss. St.) OLB: Damien Dailey (Vanderbilt), Chance Herring (TCU) CB: Khalil Harrell (FSU), Roman Blackmon (TCU), Devon Braxton (Texas), Darren Logan (ODU) FS: Jeremy Whitehead (LSU), Samir Driver (Alabama) SS: Myles Hamilton (Wisconsin), Brody Gibbons (Utah) Alright, let me know what egregious mistakes I made this time down below!
  10. Shh I'm trying to have him fall to you in the late 2nd . Actually, there were just too many 5.0 OTs and I didn't feel like typing them all out. Montalvo had an injury in 2021, right?

    Draft Schadenfreude

    I know I've said this before but DescretoBurrito was set on taking Prince Williams (who went to your team right before our pick), so we had to "settle" for JBB. I have absolutely no recollection of what the plan at RB was going to be if we (Denver) didn't get JBB, since Jerry Rambo was clearly on his last legs. 2021: As acting Broncos GM for the 2021 draft, allow me to say... that was a horrid draft to be a first-time GM in. Not a lot of top end players, the only deep position was OL (which Denver didn't need), and I was probably too passive and wedded to my board. While I don't regret taking Deyonte Davis with our first pick after Carlos Washington and Kevin McQueen were taken not far in front of us (Man Corner, huh Loins?), I often wonder what would have happened if I took Hudson Adam instead. My thinking was that there was a bigger dropoff between the top DEs (Washington, Davis, Grady) and the next tier (Jamal Patton) than there was from Adam to the next group of DTs (Serrano, Bynum, Gleason, etc), DE was a much bigger need, and Patton would have been a huge reach in the 2nd. Would Adam+Patton (or someone like CB Devin Little) have been better than Davis+Serrano? I don't know, but Serrano hasn't quite taken the step forward I hoped he would in his second year. (Also with hindsight it would have been hilarious to put klemm on tilt - again - after taking a player he wanted - again.) 2022: As the Seahawks GM the only regret I have is the Tyler White pick. I tried to trade up to get Miles Slater but tried to contact the wrong Cards FO member (llamas was still out), couldn't find anyone to trade back with, and basically went with White due to time - while I like the player well enough, I didn't like the value there at 40. And I don't know if it's possible to be sniped by somebody who picks 10+ spots in front of you, but if it is then GB did it twice this draft - once with Artavius Hopkins and again with Tegray Wingard.

    [2022] Week 6 Coaches Poll

    I can address this one: I forgot Stanford on my ballot last week. So this week wasn't so much about vaulting Stanford ahead as it was putting them where they should have been to begin with.
