Tennessee Titans Off Season Additions

Image result for corey davis and eric deckerThe Tennessee Titans have added some real weapons on Offense and some Anchors on the Defense. These include:

  • Eric Decker: The Former New York Jets WR will bring a veteran presence in that young wide receiving core; And not to mention he caught 12 TD’s two seasons ago in New York.
  • Corey Davis: Davis, who is the NCAA receiving yards leader was drafted 5th overall by Tennessee and should thrive beside a Veteran leader like Decker.
  • Taywan Taylor: Like Davis, Taylor is a rookie. He was drafted in the third round and will be a second string receiver and will have time to develop.
  • Adoree’ Jackson: Jackson is a Rookie who did it all in college. He was a kick and punt returner and played cornerback and wide receiver. He adds a dynamic edge to the Titans team.
  •   Jonu Smith: A dynamic rookie tight end who caught 18 touchdowns in his career at FIU will look to be another option at tight end other than Delanie Walker.
  • Logan Ryan: In his career in New England, Ryan racked up 13 interceptions and 41 passes defended. He will help boost the titans secondary that desperately needed a lock down corner.

Other Notable Additions: 

  • Jonathan Cyprien-FS
  • Sylvester Williams -NT
  • Eric Weems-WR
  • Brynden Trawick-SS
  • Daren Bates-RILB

Jamie Collins Sr. Was Wanted by Browns in the 2013 NFL Draft & Collins Moving to Safety?

Jamie Collins was wanted by the Cleveland Browns (current team) in the 2013 NFL Draft. If the Browns were successful in drafting Collins in the 2013 Draft, it could have helped secure their front 7, and maybe helped them have some better defensive snaps over the past few years.

News out of Cleveland is that Collins Sr.  is begging coaches to move him to Free Safety. Collins has the speed (4.59) to play safety, he also has 5 interceptions and 16 pass deflections in his career. Those stats are almost exactly identical to Safety Kenny Vaccaro who was drafted in the same year as Jamie Collins. Though it is very unlikely that Collins Sr. will play safety, it’s just scary to think about a speedy 6’3” 250lbs Free Safety in the Browns secondary.

 

 

NFL Mock Draft (Part 1)

1. Cle: Myles Garret-  No dispute here, clearly the number 1 player in the draft.

2. SF: Mitch Trubisky- “San Fran” Needs a New Face for the Franchise, and Trubisky will be just that.

3. CHI: Marshon Lattimore- Chicago need help in the secondary, Lattimore is the best Corner in this Draft.

4. Jax: Lenard Fournette- Jacksonville could go many different directions, being one of the worst rushing teams in the league last year this seems like the smart move.

5. TEN: Forrest Lamp- Titans need Help in the Secondary and the Offensive Line, i think they go Line First Round.

6. NYJ: Deshaun Watson- Jets need a True Franchise QB, I think Watson can be that Guy.

7. LAC: Malik Hooker-  Chargers need a Safety, bottom line.

8. CAR: Ryan Ramczyk- With Cam Newton complaining about all the hits last year, i think the Panthers listen and get a Lineman first round.

9. CIN: Takkarist McKinley- Bengals love Big, Tough, Strong linebackers, i think McKinley will fit in nicely.

10. BUF: De Shone Kizer- Buffalo needs a Franchise QB, Kizer will be able to sit out this year and learn under Tyrod Taylor.

11. NO: Jonathan Allen- Saints cant get Pressure or stop the run, Allen does both.

12. CLE: Jamal Adams- Cleveland needs some Secondary help, Adams is a Day 1 starter.

13. ARI: John Ross- Arizona loves Speedy Receivers, and Larry on his last leg its time to bring in some youth.

14. IND: Cam Robinson- Indy has to protect Andrew Luck, bottom line. They go Offinsive Lineman First round.

15. PHI: Dalvin Cook – Ryan Mathews isn’t a every down back, and neither is Darren Sproles. Cook adds youth to a old Running Back Core.

16. BAL: Zach Cunningham – Baltimore needs youth on the Defensive side of the ball. And Zach Cunningham is a perfect fit for Baltimore.

17. WAS: Soloman Thomas – Washington needs a explosive Pass Rusher, Thomas is just that.

Muhammad Wilkerson signs five-year deal with Jets

Mo The New York Jets have locked up DT Muhammad Wilkerson on a 5 year $86 million dollar deal with $53.5 of that guaranteed. Wilkerson and the Jets waited until the very last moments of the deadline to agree on this assumed deal. With the Jets locking up Wilkerson with this long term contract, this deal just might give them the extra cash to reel in Fitzpatrick who just turned down a 3 year 24 million dollar deal.

 

What Impact Will Reggie Nelson Have with Raiders

imagesReggie Nelson has sighed a Two year, 8.5 million dollar deal with the Oakland Raiders. Nelson, who led the league in picks last season is now hoping to fill a big void for the Raiders in Replacement of Charles Woodson. The Raiders have also brought in Bruce Irvin, Sean Smith, and Karl Joseph to boost their defense even further. Nelson should bring the Raiders that big playmaker in the Safety Position they have been looking for for years. He will be a good addition to the Raiders defensive backfield, and hopefully, give them that X-Factor they are expecting from him.

Jamari Lattimore (6’2” 232lbs ) Just recently signed with the Buffalo Bills after being cut by the Jets. He should Fit in nicely with Rex Ryan’s 3-4 defense. The Bills also added Lattimore to help in the special team’s aspect of the game, Jamari is one of the best ST players in the NFL. He played around 28% of all special teams snaps as a New York Jet but had a minimal impact due to playing time. In Green Bay, he also played 28% of all ST snaps but had a much larger impact. As a NY Jet when he was on defense more than 14% of the time in 2015 they outscored there opponents 73-35 and Won every game. If Jamari does not get cut, Rex Ryan will primarily use him as a Special Team and Kick coverage player occasionally Subbing in for Preston Brown as an MLB in that 3-4 defense. If he survives the 52 man roster cut, I project he will play at least 40% of all Special Team Snaps and 20% of all Defensive Snaps.

Leaked Patriots Johnny Manziel Scouting Report

kxzwjpxehrt2tdxicso8 The Leaked Scouting Report of Johnny Manziel from the patriots surprised many people. Was this supposed to be the future of the Patriots? Were they going to dump Brady and let Manziel Take the reigns? Well We will never know now,Manziel who is a Free Agent just got Suspended the first 4 games of the NFL season is hoping to get a fresh, but different start. The AFL (Arena Football League) is interested in the troublemaker Manziel for a plethora of reasons,1. Johnny ”Football” was the most explosive player in College Football in over 20 years 2.He would have made a great NFL starter if not for his horrific attitude on and off the field 3. So the AFL assumes that if Manziel would have made a great starter in the NFL that he would sure do wonders for the team that snatches him up in the Arena League. I think that the Arena League would be a Good move for Manziel. If he puts up decent numbers and stays out of trouble , one day we could hear Johnny Manziel’s name called on Sunday once again?
