I nuovi undrafted free agents

Scritto da Massimo.

Dopo ogni draft, come ogni anno, si apre la caccia ai cosiddetti "undrafted free agents", cioè quei giocatori usciti dal college che non sono stati scelti da nessuna squadra. Si tratta, spesso, di un vero e proprio draft supplementare da cui escono a volte dei giocatori che finiscono per diventare titolari o, almeno, per superare tutti i tagli del training camp arrivando al roster finale, cosa non così scontata nemmeno per i giocatori scelti al draft.
I Los Angeles Rams hanno fatto una prima lista della spesa mettendo sotto contratto una decina di giocatori, ai quali si sono aggiunti coloro che hanno superato il tryput organizzato dalla società durante il quale gli Undrafted Free Agents si sono dovuti confrontare anche con i cosiddetti "walk-ons", cioè quei giocatori invitati o auto invitati al try out in cerca di gloria.

Morto Chuck Knox

Scritto da Massimo.

E’ morto ieri nella sua natia Sewickley, Pennsylvania, all’età di 86 anni, Chuck Knox, ex allenatore dei Los Angeles Rams e dei Seatle Seahawks (oltre che di Jets, Lions e Bills).
Dopo una breve ma proficua carriera come allenatore nei college di Wake Forest e Kentucky, Knox passò al mondo professionistico abbastanza in fretta quando, nel 1963, venne assunto come offensive line coach dai New York Jets, allora militanti nella AFL. Dopo quattro stagioni accettò la proposta dei Detroit Lions e si trasferì alla franchigia NFL, sempre come coach di linea d’attacco.

Draft 2018 - Pick #9: Trevon Young, EDGE, Louisville

Scritto da Massimo.

Young has fought through multiple injuries during his college career. He suffered a dislocated and fractured hip in the team's 2015 bowl game, missing the 2016 season. Young returned for the 2017 season opener, however, starting 12 of 13 games played. He finished the year with 62 tackles, 12 for loss, 4.5 sacks, and five pass breakups. Young first held the starting role in 2015, earning honorable mention All-ACC honors (eight starts in 12 games played, 32 tackles, 10 for loss, 8.5 sacks, interception, two forced

Draft 2018 - Pick #6: John Kelly, RB, Tennessee

Scritto da Massimo.

One of the top high school running backs in the state of Michigan in 2014, Kelly took his game to the SEC instead of signing with Big Ten schools. The three-star recruit and all-state pick played in 10 games as a true freshman, rushing for 166 yards and a touchdown on 40 carries. In 2016, Kelly only started one of 12 games played as Jalen Hurd, Alvin Kamara, and even quarterback Joshua Dobbs, had more carries. But he finished second to Dobbs with 630 rushing yards and scored five times on just 98 totes. Kelly

Draft 2018 - Pick #11: Justin Lawler, DL, SMU

Scritto da Massimo.

While only ranked as a two-star prospect from Texas, Lawler's first-team all-state selection (124 tackles, 28 tackles for loss, 13 sacks; 44 catches, 719 yards, 11 touchdowns receiving) portended a good career at SMU. The former high school powerlifter was ready to play right away, earning time in all 12 games as a true freshman (23 tackles) and getting some time on offense (three-yard touchdown, two-point conversion). Lawler earned the starting job as a sophomore, lining up for every game and leading the Mustangs with 64 tackles, nine for loss while

Draft 2018 - Pick #8: Sebastian Joseph, DT, Rutgers

Scritto da Massimo.

Overview
Three-year starter with an excellent motor to go along with above average toughness. Joseph's athletic ability and quickness serve him well as a run defender, but he is unlikely to be much of a factor as a pass rusher on the next level. Joseph will need to add mass, but he's got a shot to fit into a rotation as either a three-technique or shade nose in a 4-3 defense.
 
Strengths
  • Plays with very good quickness off the snap.

Draft 2018 - Pick #5: Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, EDGE, Oklahoma

Scritto da Massimo.

Ogbonnia "Obo" Okoronkwo (pronounced o-BO-ny-uh o-kor-RON-kwo) was the son of Nigerian immigrants, and a defensive end recruit from Houston Alief Taylor High School before going to Oklahoma. He redshirted in 2013, then played in 11 games as a reserve, making eight tackles, three for loss, and two sacks. Okoronkwo lined up for the first nine games in 2015 (nine tackles, two sacks) before being sat down as an internal discipline. He got his chance to attack the quarterback in 2016, earning a second-team All-Big

Draft 2018 - Pick #10: Travin Howard, LB, TCU

Scritto da Massimo.

Draft Prospect Outlook:
Safety turned linebacker who uses lightning quickness to avoid blocks to get to the football. Space player who can stay with running backs in coverage. Every type of blocker can overwhelm him at times. Has some tackling issues. Will be one of the first defenders to the football due to his athleticism.
 
College Recap:
A three-star recruit out of Longview, Texas, Howard immediately contributed as a true freshman, appearing in all

Draft 2018 - Pick #7: Jamil Demby, G, Maine

Scritto da Massimo.

An All-South Jersey selection and summa cum laude graduate, Demby slipped through the recruiting ranks a bit to wind up at Maine. He started 10 games at left tackle as a true freshman, then did so again in 2015. He missed the 2016 season opener with a strained PCL but returned to play in 10 games, starting nine at his left tackle spot. In his final season, Demby was a preseason CAA All-Conference selection and a third-team FCS All-American before going on to play in all 10 of the team's games. Demby isn't an elite athlete, but his intelligence and ability to

Draft 2018 - Pick #4: Micah Kiser, ILB, Virginia

Scritto da Massimo.

Kiser has used his instincts, hustle, and powerful tackling to become one of the most productive linebackers (both against the run and as a pass rusher) in the country during his three years on the field with the Cavaliers. The two-time All-Maryland pick and Baltimore Sun's Co-Defensive Player of the Year in 2012, Kiser redshirted his first year in Charlottesville. He made 15 tackles in 12 games as a reserve as a freshman, tying for the team lead with nine stops on special teams. Kiser was installed in the middle of the Cavs'
