Scouting Snapshots-David Amerson

These are my preseason scouting reports.  They are meant to just lay a foundation for where these players are going into the 2012 College Football season.  Obviously when I do final scouting reports on these players after the season, things will change.  No guarantees they will change for the better, and I do my best to be objective and pragmatic.  You all may take that as being negative, but if I like a guy I say so, and if I don't, you'll hear that too.

The Saga of Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones Drew

So, I am listening to ESPN Radio the other night and I hear that Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has decided to hold out for a new contract, with 2 years remaining on his current contract extension that he signed in 2009. This is a contract that is set to pay him over $4 million per for the final 2 seasons. A contract that he agreed to, and to the best of my knowledge with no threat or coercion.

Now we fast forward 3 very good statistical seasons for MJD and he wants to get paid. He was given the keys to the running game starting in 2009 after Fred Taylor left for New England and has averaged 1,440 yards per game the past 3 seasons. He’s been a very impressive back without a doubt. But he doesn’t deserve a raise.

The Oklahoma Sooners are back(sort of)...

It was a good news/bad news sort of day for Oklahoma Sooners fans.  First the bad news.

Senior center Ben Habern has decided after a series of neck and back injuries to retire from football and focus on his studies.  Habern has been hampered by injuries throughout his career at OU and most recently his injuries have been just frightening enough that although he's been given a clean bill of health is just too delicate to risk further injury which could jeopardize more than his playing career.  Habern is a Human Relations major and by all accounts a good student.

What this means?  It means that it'll essentially be business as usual for the Sooners oline.  Junior Gabe Ikard was in line to start at center until Habern was fit, so his retirement was a smart move.  Probably wasn't going to see the field a ton, and his draft potential had certainly taken a hit. I wish him all the best.  Boomer Sooner!

Evening Mail Sack

What's up football fans?  First off, I want to say I'm sorry for slacking on the old mail sack.  Been swamped trying to get ready for the college and NFL season, along with preparing to head back to my day job as a Special Education Teacher and my time has been tight.  But I've kept all the emails and DM's and I'll do my best to try and get caught up.

Why do you do all this work for football?-Clint in South Dakota

Arkansas State dismisses Michael Dyer from team-Worst of both worlds

It was announced this evening according to Arkansas State SID that former Auburn and much maligned running back Michael Dyer has been dismissed for violation of unspecified team rules. 

What a mess for Dyer and what a ride he's been on.  After being dismissed from Auburn, he transferred to Arkansas State and applied for a waiver that would have allowed him to play this year.  His waiver request was denied.

Upon the denial football fans were taken on a roller coaster ride for several days as rumors flew about Dyer possibly transferring to DII powerhouse Pittsburg State University.  I know I was told personally by staff at PSU that Dyer wanted to be there and was hoping to work out the scholarship concerns.

Rookie Impact Report-St. Louis Rams

This article is one I did as a contributor for the site www.getrealfootball.com.  It's a great site and one that I look forward to working with a lot in the near future.  Check them out and find them on twitter at www.twitter.com/getrealfootball

 

 

When you are a bad football team, the window of time for rookies to see the field and impact their team is very small.  If you are drafted, you’d better be ready to play.  The positions of need were pretty obvious for a team that could only muster 2 wins.  Lots of holes to fill.  The Rams front office was aggressive with its picks and took several high risk/high reward players and all in all look to have a group of players who not only will see the field as key substitutes, but could very well be in the starting lineup.

Potential Landing Spot for Silas Redd-University of Oklahoma

In the wake of the recent explosion of sanctions on Penn state University, one point of debate now is will any of the Nittany Lions talented underclassmen transfer before the start of the season and if so where?  One such player in this position is the super talented Junior running back Silas Redd.
Last season as a sophomore, Redd really asserted himself as a back and rushed for 1,241 rushing yards and 7 touchdowns.  A good, but not great season.  But what we saw with Redd was flashes.  The quick feet.  The cuts.  The explosion and the strength.  This young man with 2 years of college eligibility remaining looks poised to become an elite runner this season.

It only makes sense that a player like Redd, certainly with NFL aspirations, wants to maximize his opportunities and while this year might be safe at Penn State as far as talent goes, next year could be a problem.  So, what is a player like Redd to do with his final 2 years

The Future Over Drafted of the 2013 NFL Draft

Every season you get those players who the media gets ahold of, and once that machine starts rolling it's less about how good a football player they are and more about how far up networks like ESPN and NFL Network can push them on a team's  draft board.  This year is no different and here are my 5 guys almost sure to be drafted higher than their talent would indicate and more about how far networks like ESPN and NFL Network can pimp them.  Now, I don't fault the players. They go out and play hard and try to be drafted as high as possible.  I get that.  I fault the media who exaggerates their skills and potential, and teams who draft at times out of desperation.
