Fly’s Heisman Watch: Cole McDonald

This week on the Heisman watch we look at Cole McDonald, a tall athletic quarterback from Hawaii who has all the tools to be a great Quarterback at the next level and has the numbers to be a legit Heisman Canadite. Through the first six weeks of the college football season, Cole McDonald already has 24 touchdowns and just two interceptions on 240 pass attempts. If he keeps up this pace, he will have 4,500 yards and 52 passing touchdowns, along with 488 rushing yards with 5 more scores on the ground. He is one of the most gifted Quarterbacks we have seen playing at his level in almost a decade. If he can continue to produce at a high level watch out for this kid in the future. #HeismanWatch

Top 2 Titans To watch for this Preseason:

#46 Nick Deluca:                                                                                                              Position(s): ILB/TE

Nick Deluca was my favorite player in this years Draft. He is a very instinctive player with the best hands and coverage skills you will ever see in a linebacker.  Where he struggles is getting after the Quarterback and getting physical, he can get canceled out by a lineman easily and needs to work on his pass rushing skills. On the newest Titans depth chart, they have Deluca listed as a backup linebacker as well as a backup Tight End which is puzzling to me, but when you think about Mike Vrabel (Titans New Head Coach) and how he was used over his career, as a Linebacker and a red zone tight end, Coach Vrabel might be trying to make a “Mini Me” out of Deluca using him as a two way player? This kid is a stud and hopefully makes the final roster.

 

#58 Harold Landry:                                                                                                              Position: ROLB/RDE

Harold Landry is being labeled “The Steal Of The Draft” by NFL experts. He was one of the most hyped up players in 2016, leading the Nation in sacks with 16 and having a college season comparative to Von Miller when he was in college! Landry is a quick outside linebacker and defensive end who is being compared to players such as Vic Beasly, Von Miller, and Jamie Collins. He is going to be playing a lot tonight and we will be able to get a good look at what the Titans drafted last April.

 

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.

Brandon Shell Scouting Report

 

Nov 15, 2014; Gainesville, FL, USA; South Carolina Gamecocks offensive tackle Brandon Shell (71) blocks Florida Gators defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard (90) during the second quarter at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. Mandatory Credit: Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Brandon Shell: 6’6” 324lbs

Brandon Shell is and NFL type Prospect with a 34 3/4″ arm length and 10 3/4″ hands. In the NFL combine he had the one of the best broad jumps for offensive Tackles measuring 112” long. He also he ran a 5.22 40yd dash. Over the past 4 years Shell has been a solid OT starting all 47 games for the Gamecocks, he has broad shoulders and is a Kick and Slide lineman with a Anchor technique.He often times stands flat footed which in turn gives him trouble with the speed rush and linebacker blitzes. He is a classic example of a Heavy legged waist bender Lineman,he is very sluggish and slow reaction time off the snap. On drops back he stops moving his feet, most one on ones end in a draw instead of winning at the line of scrimmage. Does not have the feet nor the hand strength to become a starting left tackle in the NFL. Has all the components just not the technique, He would be a good project for a NFL line coach.

My projections:

Grade: 6.5

Round: 5
