    5. Another year of re-signings is done, and we've got some exciting free agents about to hit the market. Surprisingly, the top of the class is not quite as good as last year's was, but there are still some quality players that should be available on the open market. Too many of them are former Jets for my liking, but that's the cap's fault. That said, some things do never change. The Bengals once again did not re-sign a single one of their players and the Jets once again will see multiple players appear on this list. Unlike last year where there was a top 7 and 3 more mediocre "top" free agents, though, this year I'd say there's a top 3 and 7 more mediocre "top" free agents. So, the following are, in my opinion, the top 10 players that are hitting the market in the second(!) NFLHC free agency where multiple actual good players will be on the market. 1. RB Vaughan Abraham 5-10 201 8 LSU [Speed] [-1] 94 Former team: Dallas Cowboys Vaughan is probably the player with the best overall career that's ever hit the market. The 7-time Pro Bowler and about as many time All-Pro, and all-time NFLHC career rushing leader, was let go without so much as a contract offered in a somewhat surprising move by Dallas as - with the Rodney Montgomery trade also occuring recently - the team seems to be transitioning into a more pass-based offense behind former #7 overall pick Graham Burnett. The rumor mill seems to be trending towards Vaughan chasing money while he's still elite rather than a ring since, well, he's already won a ring. The teams that I could see trying to sign Abraham include the Bears, Seahawks, Chiefs, Cardinals, Texans, Chargers, Patriots, Bills, Giants, and Redskins. Projected 2022 team: New England Patriots New England recently brought in a completely new front office, and with that tends to come splash signings to try to appease the fans. There's not much attachment to players brought in by the former staff either, and so a signing of someone like Abraham could make a lot of sense especially without a real QB solution on the roster. Abraham has always ran behind a line that's one of the best in the league, and New England's was actually top 10 by rating last year, so they should also feel comfortable that he could put up some decent numbers behind their line. Now all they have to do is bring in a QB - or maybe give last year's 3rd rounder Luke Trickett a try. 2. WR Greg Cobb 6-3 188 5 Cincinnati [Target] [0] 90 Former team: Miami Dolphins Cobb has put up some of the more underrated statistics in NFLHC until he received much notice this past season. He put up an impressive 93/1436/16 season while dropping just one pass. He's put up 800+ yards in all but one of his career seasons in the league. How much of that is a result of Brian Brown remains to be seen, but he'll likely receive a giant contract on the open market. It's deserved based on his prior successes, but personally, I'm not so sure he's a bona fide receiver #1. The teams that I could see trying to sign Cobb include the Giants, Chargers, Bills, Cardinals, Seahawks, and Redskins. Projected 2022 team: New York Giants The Giants make a lot of sense as a fit for Cobb. A lot of that is because they have the necessary cap room to sign him, but there's also a serious weakness in the current receiving corps and with a new QB likely joining the Giants this offseason, at least one weapon to throw to is a good idea for the Football Giants - especially if it's a rookie. 3. DT Bob Ballard 6-1 292 7 Penn State [2-Gap] [+2/C] 89 Former team: New York Jets You may never have heard of Bob Ballard, but he's the top defensive free agent on the market and is likely to get seriously paid. A first team All-Pro selection this past season, Ballard notably fired his agent via Twitter, opting to go with new agent Andraez "Greedy" Williams as his new representation this offseason. After negotiations with the Jets quickly fell through this offseason, Ballard tweeted up a storm about a "lack of loyalty" in NFLHC, so he will surely remain loyal to whoever his next team will be. Teams that can be expected to try to sign Ballard include the Giants, Cardinals, Texans, Chiefs, Bills, and Redskins. Projected 2022 team: Houston Texans There aren't too many teams in NFLHC with massive needs at defensive tackle, but Houston is one of them, as they seem to be running a 4-3 but with no defensive tackles 80+ overall on the roster. While Ballard is a 2-gap defensive tackle, he has played in the Jets' 4-3 for his entire career so that shouldn't be much of a concern. The Texans have the right defensive structure and enough cap space to make sense as a perfect destination. 4. QB Reggie Watkins 6-4 200 8 Alabama [Pocket] [+3/C] 89 Former team: New England Patriots Watkins spent just one season in New England after coming over from Baltimore in a trade. It seems like Watkins is one of those good-but-not-great quarterbacks - good enough to lead a team into the playoffs but not quite good enough to win playoff games. Obviously, New England didn't make the playoffs last year, but they also were a bit devoid of talent and competed in a division where 12 wins was only enough for second place. Still, going forward Watkins seems likely to be the perfect bridge QB for a team looking to sit a highly touted rookie QB for a season or two - but he doesn't seem likely to be a permanent solution for any team. Teams that could look to sign him include the Chiefs, Steelers, Chargers, Cardinals, Giants, Seahawks, and the Patriots trying to bring him back. Projected 2022 team: Arizona Cardinals Many were surprised when Arizona let Taylor Rodriguez go, but word on the street is that the team's GM despises the "weak-armed" QB and wanted to move in a different direction. Arizona is likely out of range of Matt Jones in the upcoming draft barring a move up, but they seem a very likely candidate to take someone like Ryan Harris or Donald Culver and try to sit them for a year. Watkins would be a perfect player to start in the meantime as a mentor and someone who could keep them competitive in an NFC West that seems very devoid of competitiveness outside of LA right now. 5. RB Chad Dess 6-1 241 7 Virginia [Power] [-1] 88 Former team: Los Angeles Rams Dess, a plodding power back, is probably on the downswing of his career. After spending a few mostly futile seasons in Buffalo, Dess was traded to the Rams before the trade deadline in the team's attempt to push for a Super Bowl. Unfortunately for them and Dess, a 13-3 record wasn't even good enough for a first round bye and they proceeded to get upset in the first round by Carolina. Dess was not offered a contract and hits the open market. I would think that Dess is likely to go to one of the teams in contention for Vaughan Abraham that doesn't end up signing him - so the Bears, Seahawks, Chiefs, Cardinals, Texans, Chargers, Patriots, Bills, Giants, Titans, and Redskins are all candidates. I wouldn't expect him to go back to Buffalo, however. Projected 2022 team: Kansas City Chiefs The Chiefs ran the Terrence Rodgers-Justin Buchanan combo a lot, almost into the ground, last year. However, with Buchanan regressing significantly I could see them in the market for a new RB2, as they will likely look to run the same offense as last year with a QB solution still hanging in the balance and the one proper WR weapon Rodney Montgomery traded away. Dess could be a nice fit as RB2, as I'm not sure there are many teams looking for him to start, but on a team where RB2 gets almost as many carries as most other team's RB1 that seems like it could be an acceptable solution for Dess. 6. CB Marques Warner 6-1 193 6 Texas A&M [Man Coverage] [+1] 87 Former team: New York Jets Warner, going into his 7th NFLHC season, has been the Jets' CB2 for his first 6 seasons. It shows with his lack of career interceptions, but as a coverage corner you could do a lot worse. I don't expect that most teams that would intend to sign Warner would run him at CB1 anyway... but he is untested there. Warner is a fine solution as a starter, and while he's not a marquee free agent, he could be a very underrated signing. Teams that could look to sign Warner include the Chiefs, Redskins, Giants, Cardinals, Texans, Chargers, Patriots, and Bills. Projected 2022 team: Buffalo Bills The Bills have been weak at cornerback for their entire 5-season existence, and while drafting Sean Taylor in last year's first was a start (although his first year progression was worrying, to say the least) they still could use another corner to play as a starter. While I'm not a huge fan of Warner's fit as a CB1, he's way better than anything else that Buffalo has ever trotted out at that spot and I think he's about as perfect a fit for their needs as you could realistically get on the NFLHC free agent market. 7. QB Norris Brooksheer 6-3 207 5 Oklahoma [Pocket] [+1/C] 89 Former team: Chicago Bears The first former #1 overall pick to ever hit the free agent market, the Bears' first ever pick had an up-and-down time in Chicago. He did have perhaps his best season in 2021, throwing 27 TD to 16 INT, but he finished his five seasons in Chicago without ever so much as qualifying for the playoffs. I think Brooksheer is something of a younger Reggie Watkins - he'll fill in nicely as someone's bridge QB this season but I'm not sure he'll ever be looked at as a permanent solution for any team. Still, hard to go wrong with a captain who's nearly an 89 overall. His market should be similar to Watkins', with possible destinations including the Chiefs, Steelers, Chargers, Cardinals, Giants, Seahawks, and Patriots. Projected 2022 team: Pittsburgh Steelers The Steelers made the playoffs last season with RJ Stanford at the helm, so I can imagine that with Brooksheer they could be even better. With Pittsburgh still able to take advantage of a relatively weak AFC North - though with the Kenyatta trade, the Ravens may become contenders - an upgrade at QB could be huge for the team. Brooksheer could be a multiple-year bridge on a team like Pittsburgh, as I don't see them spending any significant resources on a QB, but with the depth of this QB class someone the team picks late could still potentially emerge down the road. 8. DT Malik Dawson 6-3 281 4 Illinois [1-Gap] [0/C] 87 Former team: Kansas City Chiefs Dawson, a former high 2nd round pick, had an up-and-down career in KC. While he is a solid presence in the locker room, his production didn't always match his overall - although he has made a Pro Bowl. With the Chiefs acquiring Carnell Meadows this past season and re-signing a solid Bud Howard, Dawson rejected KC's re-signing bid, opting for a potential starting spot as DT1 somewhere else. Anyone that signs him will get a player that could play at an elite level in one game and at a practice squad level the next, so it may be hard to justify the contract he's likely to get on the open market. Still, teams that could look to sign Dawson include the Giants, Cardinals, Texans, Bills, Chargers, and Redskins. Projected 2022 team: New York Giants Giants GM deandean1998 is a big advocate of Dawson, having pushed to acquire Dawson in the draft back when he was the Chiefs' scout in 2017, and with a hole at the DT position Dawson could fill in nicely for the Giants for a few seasons. New York's defense is also losing a leader with the Kenyatta Henderson trade, so shoring up some parts of the front 7 could be a big boost for a defense that does still remain very talented. 9. OLB Kwazi Robb 6-1 232 8 Minnesota [Coverage] [0] 87 Former team: New York Jets Robb, the Jets' second ever draft pick, has started all of his career games for the team, but is now on the downswing of his career and considering retirement. Still, in a relatively weak OLB free agent class (he's the only 80+ player) and with plenty of teams having needs at the position, I still expect him to garner a pretty decent contract from a team that has a need at the position and could use the two-time Pro Bowler for a season or two. Potential destinations include the Redskins, Chargers, Bears, Cardinals, Texans, Bills, and Patriots. Projected 2022 team: Philadelphia Eagles Surprise! The Eagles actually do have a decent bit of cap space, they're just not a team I would expect to pay (or should we say overpay, am I right) for most of the players above. Still, they have the room for a one-year deal, and with a hole at OLB next to Martin Whiting and a weak OLB draft class, the Eagles are a nice fit to give Robb a one year home as a starter before his intended retirement. 10. CB Jaylen Harris 5-10 173 4 Louisville [Zone Coverage] [0] 83 Former team: Las Vegas Raiders You most likely haven't heard much about Jaylen Harris, but the 91st overall pick in the 2018 NFLHC Draft was actually a first team All-Pro level player this past year. Of course, that was at slot corner; but still, that accolade alone sets him up for a much bigger payday than his one total interception in 2021 would seem to indicate. Corner is always a big need around the league and so I would expect him to be in line to receive a lot from team with a need at the position. Potential destinations include the Steelers, Giants, Bears, Seahawks, Cardinals, Chargers, and Bills. Projected 2022 team: Los Angeles Chargers of San Diego Despite being the team with the most cap space and probably the most holes in NFLHC, this is the first time I've predicted a player to the Chargers. I'm not so sure things will go that way, but the Chargers were relatively conservative in last year's free agency and seem to prefer attempting to develop young players. Still, Harris is still pretty young and might even still be able to just play slot corner for LA next season as the Chargers do have a decent level of talent at the position already established on the team. Their pass defense was above average last year, but in a division with Nick Hall you can use all the talent at corner possible, and stealing a player who used to play against him in practice every week could help out that cause even further.
    6. I'm gonna be starting a lot of true freshmen and new players at USC... should be an interesting season. A lot of the PAC-12 South is losing a lot of talent with lesser talent making up for it, so I'd imagine the division is up for grabs. For the Jets, if Wegert comes back we'll continue to try to build up the team while this improbable window of contention continues. I'm excited about some of the young talent that will have to step up for us, and also re-claiming our rightful AFC East title back from those dirty dirty fish in Miami.

    19. In order to streamline the process of feedback on the site, we've decided to introduce a small committee that will take comments, feedback, and general ideas for both the sim and on community issues and present all of the most pertinent ones to Soluna in a more streamlined fashion. This functionality will mostly replace the current private feedback system, although this will remain enabled in order to allow for people to share ideas that are best shared with Soluna privately and not with the community. Soon, a new forum will be created called Committee Feedback (PRIVATE) that will function effectively in the same way as private feedback does now - only you and the members of the committee will be able to see it. If you wish to give feedback at a given time, you should just create a thread called "[your username]'s Committee Feedback" in this forum. This is where you should generally now share your feedback in regards to the sim, as stated above. The function of the committee will be to review all of the posts made in feedback, respond to each post in a timely manner giving feedback on the potential feasibility and implementation of any ideas and/or a response about addressing any comments made that raise pertinent issues. Once a month, the committee will prepare and give a general overview of the feedback given by the committee to myself and Soluna, hold a discussion on both ideas and comments on the community, and then make a public post summarizing any feedback and allowing for discussion in areas they feel the community at large should discuss. We're hoping that this will make communication between the admin side and the community side smoother and clearer. If joining this committee is something you'd be interested in, send me a PM and I'll ask you a few questions in regards to the potential role. It will be a small committee and won't require too much of a time commitment, but I'd prefer that if you wish to join you can commit to staying at least reasonably active in responding to people's posts and being able to participate in the summarizing aspect on a monthly basis. Anyone is welcome to join if they're interested, including conference commissioners - just message me and I'll give you further details. tl;dr: Unless you think it needs to be viewed only by Soluna, please use the new Committee Feedback (PRIVATE) forum to give comments, feedback, and ideas about the sim and community. If you want to join the committee, please read this whole post and not just the tl;dr.
    20. INTRODUCTION The 2022 NFLHC Draft continues to approach quicker than ever as trade season has begun to heat up - if you're the Giants, at least - and players have started to re-sign new contracts with their teams or declare free agency. While free agents are nice, the core of any successful NFLHC team is built is through the draft. They do say that defense wins championships, so in the 2nd edition of the Jumbro Post™ we're bringing you our top 5 favorite defensive prospects at each position before any of that combine or pro day nonsense. This is a collaborative post between me and @Broletariat - all research, writing, composition, and glory is shared. INTERIOR DEFENSIVE LINEMEN 1. DE Timothy Key 6-2 240 R Florida [Contain] 83 2021 stats: 38 tackles, 10 for loss, 13.5 sacks, 1 FF, 1 FR Projection: Top 5 2. DE Parker Holmes 6-3 247 R Tennessee [Contain] 81 2021 stats: 45 tackles, 11 for loss, 15.5 sacks Projection: Mid-1st 3. DT Shamar Ware 6-5 278 R Penn State [2-Gap] 82 2021 stats: 31 tackles, 7 for loss, 6.5 sacks Projection: Mid-1st 4. DT Marlon Bailey 6-7 322 R Akron [2-Gap] 80 2021 stats: 20 tackles, 1 for loss, 7 sacks Projection: Late 1st 5. DT Omar Adcock 6-5 311 R Fresno State [1-Gap] 80 2021 stats: 16 tackles, 3 for loss, 5 sacks Projection: Late 1st/Early 2nd Just missed: DE Miles Slater 6-1 248 R Washington [Contain] 80 This interior defensive line class has three top tier prospects in Key, Holmes, and Ware. If the Chargers don't manage to trade down, Key is a serious contender to go #1 overall. He's perhaps the best 3-4 end to come out since Tyler Jones. While Holmes, a senior JUCO transfer, has stats that are very impressive on the surface, Ware's seem just alright - but both were Heisman semifinalists this season. Bailey, Adcock, and Slater were all very close, but pass rush productivity from a further interior position gave an advantage to the defensive tackles. Compared to prior classes, this is definitely an above average and potentially elite interior line class. EDGE RUSHERS 1. DE Khairi Bryant 5-10 263 R Ohio State [Blitz] [0] 83 2021 stats: 46 tackles, 12 for loss, 19.5 sacks Projection: Top 5 2. DE Sebastian Smallwood 6-1 254 R Alabama [Blitz] 82 2021 stats: 42 tackles, 10 for loss, 15 sacks, 1 FR Projection: Top 10 3. OLB Alexander Burton 6-1 237 R LSU [Blitz] [+1/C] 78 2021 stats: 48 tackles, 5 for loss, 7 sacks Projection: Early 2nd 4. DE Lucas Benton 5-10 235 R Michigan [Blitz] 78 2021 stats: 24 tackles, 2 for loss, 14 sacks, 1 FR Projection: Early 2nd 5. OLB Phillip Davenport 5-11 226 R Arizona [Blitz] 80 2021 stats: 12 tackles Projection: Late 2nd/Early 3rd Just missed: OLB Devin Goss 5-11 247 R Michigan [Blitz] [0] 76, DE Cory Hall 5-10 237 R Penn State [Blitz] 76 2022 is a very top-heavy EDGE class with two obvious top prospects in Bryant and Smallwood, with a fairly serious dropoff thereafter into the second and third rounds. However, because of this gap, expect a pass-rush needy team to reach on a guy like Phillip Davenport or Lucas Benton to fill an immediate roster need in the last first or very early second rounds. You may also see a team with this need try to drop out of their mid-late first round pick to target one of these guys instead. Both of the big two in this group look to have elite potential, and should be off the board before we reach pick 10. LINEBACKERS 1. ILB Tyrese Thompson 6-3 228 R Auburn [Mike] 82 2021 stats: 33 tackles, 1 for loss, 1 sack, 1 pass defensed, 1 FF, 1 FR Projection: Mid-1st 2. ILB Markus Golden 6-5 240 R Ole Miss [Mike] 81 2021 stats: 29 tackles, 2 for loss, 1 sack, 1 pass defensed Projection: Mid/Late 1st 3. OLB Jabari Fletcher 6-5 239 R Texas [Coverage] 81 2021 stats: 9 tackles, 2 for loss, 3.5 sacks Projection: Late 1st 4. ILB Adam Lovelace 6-2 234 R Vanderbilt [Mike] 80 2021 stats: 62 tackles, 5 for loss, 1 sack Projection: Early 2nd 5. OLB Evan Walsh 5-11 218 R Nevada [Coverage] 81 2021 stats: 18 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 1 interception, 2 passes defensed Projection: Early 2nd Just missed: ILB Kieron Brooks 6-1 239 R Charlotte [Mike] 81, OLB Patrick Haines 6-2 244 R Utah [Coverage] 78  This year’s linebacker class appears a consistent one, with value to be found throughout the first two days of the draft. Led by ILB Tyrese Thompson from Auburn, who we expect to be off the board before the halfway point in round one, the 2021 class also presents a few nice outside backers for 4-3 schemes in Jabari Fletcher and Evan Walsh. Expect round two to feature as many as five linebacker selections - someone like Brooks could also sneak into the first round with a proper combine and pro day performance. CORNERBACKS 1. CB Kenyon Justice 6-1 177 R Auburn [Zone Coverage] 82 2021 stats: 7 tackles, 4 interceptions, 1 pass defensed Projection: Top 10 2. CB Kamari Cheatham 5-10 221 R NC State [Man Coverage] 80 2021 stats: 12 tackles, 5 interceptions, 2 passes defensed Projection: Mid/Late 1st 3. CB Tre'Davious Dikes 6-2 199 R Oregon [Man Coverage] 79 2021 stats: 15 tackles, 6 interceptions, 5 passes defensed, 1 touchdown Projection: Late 1st/Early 2nd 4. CB Kyle Cunningham 6-4 183 R Baylor [Zone Coverage] 80 2021 stats: 4 tackles, 1 interception Projection: Late 1st/Early 2nd 5. CB Bradley Spurlock 5-10 188 R Kansas [Man Coverage] 78 2021 stats: 13 tackles, 1 for loss, 5 interceptions, 2 passes defensed Projection: Mid-2nd Just missed: CB Levern White 5-9 162 R Toledo [Man Coverage] 78, CB Logan Holmes 5-11 201 R Illinois [Zone Coverage] 77 Outside of one sure thing, this corner class seems to have a lot of question marks and risky picks. Justice, a former JUCO transfer, was one of the stars of Auburn's stifling defense and seems a sure thing. Cheatham, Dikes, and Cunningham all come with their own question marks from general coverage ability for Dikes to a worrying dropoff in interceptions as a senior for Cunningham. There could be some nice potential steals available at later junctures such as Spurlock and Holmes, but Justice seems to be the only corner available with truly elite potential. SAFETIES 1. FS Seth Scott 6-2 193 R Colorado [Man Coverage] 81 2021 stats: 17 tackles, 1 interception, 2 passes defensed Projection: Late 1st 2. SS Shaq Turner 5-9 192 R Texas State [Zone Coverage] 82 2021 stats: 15 tackles, 1 for loss, 1 interception, 6 passes defensed Projection: Late 1st/Early 2nd 3. FS Cameron Bowden 5-10 216 R Arizona [Man Coverage] 80 2021 stats: 23 tackles, 2 interceptions, 6 passes defensed, 1 FF, 1 FR Projection: Mid-2nd 4. FS Khalil Dennis 6-2 219 R Vanderbilt [Zone Coverage] 81 2021 stats: 4 tackles, 1 interception, 1 pass defensed Projection: Mid/Late 2nd 5. FS Damani Sheppard 5-11 214 R Stanford [Man Coverage] 79 2021 stats: 27 tackles, 2 interceptions, 4 passes defensed Projection: Late 2nd/Early 3rd Just missed: FS Jeremy Easter 6-1 195 R Duke [Man Coverage] 79, SS Eddie Burks 6-1 191 R Auburn [Man Coverage] [+1/C] 80 This safety class, while having been noted for depth concerns, also has a serious lack of star power at the top. Seth Scott gets the top slot by sheer virtue of his incredible 2020 All-American 9 interception season, but outside of that he's seemed relatively pedestrian. Turner's 6 PD from the SS spot is impressive, but without any distinguishing athletic traits it's tough to say that any of the players at safety has star potential this year. GMs might be better off looking for something like being a captain as a distinguishing point this draft.

    24. After living and establishing myself in Cape Town over the last 3.5 years, I've basically figured out that it makes way more sense to leave than it does to stay. It sucks because I do really love living here but at the same time I'm excited to finally get my degree and move on with my life. Unfortunately that means packing up and leaving and I have no idea where the hell I'm going. It's nerve-wracking but in general I am happy I took the plunge and did my degree here, I wouldn't trade it for anything. I've gotten to But as to where I'm going with the next phase of my life, it looks like I'm heading back to good ol 'Murica, likely to yet another place where I'll have to start all over. We'll see, I guess.
