2016 NFL Draft Review | My Big Board

May 14, 2019 Brian Johannes 0

Outside of reviewing how each prospect has done three years down the road, it’s only fair to see how I did evaluating each prospect. The 2016 Draft was interesting for me as it was the final draft rankings I did before adopting a grading system for my prospects and just arranged guys based on if…

May 2, 2019 Logan Fredrickson 0

Pick #2- Nick Bosa, EDGE, Ohio State San Francisco benefited from Arizona’s head scratching pick of Kyler Murray with the first overall pick.

May 2, 2019 Logan Fredrickson 0

Pick #61- Taylor Rapp, S, Washington The Rams snagged star safety Eric Weddle in free agency this offseason but he is nearing the end of his excellent career and finding a long term solution to pair with John Johnson. Rapp is excellent coming forward but does not have the athleticism most desire at the safety…

Philadelphia Eagles 2019 NFL Draft Review

May 2, 2019 Brian Johannes 0

In typical Howie Roseman fashion the Eagles were aggressive throughout the draft moving around to identify the prospects that can come in and make an impact on their roster that is pretty loaded.

New York Giants 2019 NFL Draft Review

May 2, 2019 Brian Johannes 0

With two first round picks the Giants were in a great spot to add some impact players but instead they left the draft with more questions than answers. Like why did they reach so high for a quarterback? Why did they take a Nose Tackle 17th to replace the nose tackle they took in the…

Arizona Cardinals 2019 NFL Draft Review

May 1, 2019 Logan Fredrickson 0

Pick #1- Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma A truly perplexing pick. The Cardinals had their quarterback of the future and decided to move on from him after just one year. Josh Rosen is a superior player in just about every aspect outside of athleticism yet Kliff Kingsbury still chose to take Murray with the first overall…

Minnesota Vikings 2019 NFL Draft Review

May 1, 2019 Logan Fredrickson 0

Pick #18- Garrett Bradbury, C, NC State The Vikings offensive line was a disaster last season especially the interior positions.

Pittsburgh is in a transition process as they moved away from both Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown and used selections in this draft to fill their shoes.

Green Bay Packers 2019 NFL Draft Review

April 30, 2019 Logan Fredrickson 0

Pick #12- Rashan Gary, DL, Michigan Gary was one of the most polarizing prospects in this draft class and for good reason. His athleticism is near unmatched for a human being his size. That said his college production was nowhere near what his traits would suggest. This is the ultimate boon or bust pick for…

Chicago Bears 2019 NFL Draft Review

April 30, 2019 Logan Fredrickson 0

Pick #73- David Montgomery, RB, Iowa State After trading away running back Jordan Howard this offseason the Bears needed to find a compliment to speedster Tarik Cohen.
