  1. As you start digging into many of these guys you see they got booted from their original schools for terrible behavior. Many punched women, which I am sure we would stay away from just so it didn't bring back up Mixons punch.
  2. Their season is winding down with the playoffs starting next week. I am sure some guys will make their way to NFL rosters. As far as I can tell we have 88 guys on the roster so 2 open spots. I think we have some room to add a 4th QB, a Dynamic RB, Some depth at WR and TE and a dynamic return man. Some Fellas QB Jordan Ta'Amu: I have been a fan sense he came out. Saying he has bounced around the league is minimizing things. He has stops at Houston, KC, Detroit, back to KSC, Back to Detroit, Washington and Carolina since going undrafted in 2019. Just 24 he was successful in the XFL stint and now in the USFL both running and passing. He didn't make the playoffs. RB Bo Scarborough: Remember him? Former Bama RB bounced around the league (Cowboys, Jax, Seahawks, Lions, Seahawks, Raiders). With the Lions in 2019 he had 89-377-4.2-1. I think he can compete with our 5th and 6th guys pretty easily and has a higher upside. Will be 28 this season though. WR Victor Bolden: He is already 27 and undersized at 5-8 178. and not so fast in the 40, but his speed seems better on film. 2 Rs for TDs in preseason for Niners. He was 4th in the league in receiving yards, 3rd in PR yards and 3rd in KR yards. Maurice Alexander: Another undersized WR with kick return chops. Alexander led the league in KR yards. Pedestrian receiving numbers both in the league and at Florida International where he moved to WR from QB and made his biggest impact as a PR. TE Cheyenne O'Grady: Familiar face having been in camp last year. He had upside but no polish and might have gone a long way gaining some of that in the league by being in the top 10 in receiving. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him back. He will be 26 in September. CB Will Likely: The former Maryland corner has 46 tackles, 4 ints and good kr and pr numbers

CARSON WELLS | Colorado 6026 | 241 lbs. | rSR. Bushnell, Fla. (South Sumter) 2/20/1999 (age 23.19) #26 BACKGROUND: Jacob “Carson” Wells was born in Inverness, Fla., and grew up about an hour north of Tampa on his family’s farm, where his father (Larry) raises cattle. He attended South Sumter High (alma mater of Keanu Neal), where he saw immediate varsity reps as a freshman linebacker. As a junior, Wells posted 111 tackles, 25.0 tackles for loss, 6.0 sacks and one forced fumble. Seeing action at defensive end, linebacker and tight end as a senior, he led South Sumter to a 10-win season and was named the defensive player of the year in central Florida, finishing with 96 tackles, 18.0 tackles for loss, 7.0 sacks and two interceptions. Wells also lettered in basketball and track, setting personal bests of 11.30 in the 100-meters, 42’ in the shot put and 150’ in the discus. He was also the valedictorian of his graduating class with a 4.6 weighted GPA. A three-star recruit out of high school, Wells was the No. 111 outside linebacker in the 2017 recruiting class and the No. 234 recruit in the state of Florida. He went overlooked by most FBS programs and received only one offer from a Power 5 program: Colorado. Ultimately, Wells committed to the Buffs over nearby South Florida. Wells graduated with degrees in accounting and finance and is pursuing his master’s degree in organizational leadership. His grandfather (Paul McCormick) ran track at Florida. Wells accepted his invitation to the 2022 East-West Shrine Bowl. YEAR (GP/GS) TKLS TFL SACK FF PD INT NOTES 2017: Redshirted Missed time because of a leg infection 2018: (12/6) 34 6.0 4.5 0 0 0 2019: (10/10) 57 3.0 1.0 0 4 1 Missed two games because of a concussion 2020: (6/6) 34 14.0 4.5 0 6 1 Honorable Mention All-Pac 12; Led the FBS in TFL 2021: (12/12) 62 15.0 5.5 1 4 1 Honorable Mention All-Pac 12; Led team in TFL; 50-yard INT TD Total: (40/34) 187 38.0 15.5 1 14 3 HT WT ARM HAND WING 40-YD 20-YD 10-YD VJ BJ SS 3C BP COMBINE N/A (not invited) PRO DAY 6026 241 32 5/8 9 1/2 79 1/2 4.59 2.72 1.62 35 9’11” 4.56 7.18 16 STRENGTHS: Experienced standing up or with his hand on the ground ... above-average initial burst to immediately challenge edge blockers with speed ... introduces his hands and reach very early in the rep ... rush moves work for him to win in different ways, including a swipe, rip or chop ... able to catch the wrists of blockers and shuck them away ... has a knack for finding passing lanes when he can’t get home ... sets a physical edge vs. the run and has a natural feel for run angles to leverage his side of the field ... his chase motor stays active in pursuit ... comfortable dropping into zones and staying cover aware ... started 27 consecutive games to finish his career. WEAKNESSES: Tweener size and skill set ... doesn’t have elite length, and blockers are able to significantly slow him down once they make contact ... his sequencing and secondary moves are not on an NFL level right now ... needs to use better flexibility through his hips as a rusher ... has average play strength, and doesn’t have the power to go through blockers when his leverage isn’t right ... will arrive hot as a tackler, which leads to the occasional miss ... long-armed blockers are able to move him from run fits on the edge ... will struggle to be disruptive in coverage vs. NFL skills players ... played minimal special teams outside of his freshman season ... missed two games because of concussion symptoms (September 2019). SUMMARY: A four-year starter at Colorado, Wells played a hybrid edge role in defensive coordinator Chris Wilson’s 4-3 base, lining up in both a two- and three-point stance. He was a downhill force player for the Buffs with 29 tackles for loss in 18 games the past two seasons, including an FBS-best 2.7 tackles for loss per game in 2020. Wells needs to develop his counter game, but when his upper body timing is connected to his first-step quickness, he can put blockers in vulnerable positions. Although his motor runs hot vs. the run, his anchor is inconsistent, and his coverage duties should be limited vs. NFL speed. Overall, Wells is a productive force player off the edge with his initial quickness and understanding of how to weaponize his hands, but his tweener skills lower his next-level ceiling. He projects best as a situational pass rusher or rotational “Sam” linebacker in a 3-4 scheme.

  12. Me too. it's the dumbest thing they do. The league in many ways is about happenstance and you need as many lotto tickets as possible. There isn't a good argument not to fill up the roster with absurd athletes who are raw at football. Hell I would fill spots 88-90 with power forwards who are rare athletes who couldn't make it in the NBA. I would certainly scout the USFL thoroughly as well.

A three-star recruit, he committed to Vanderbilt over several Florida, Georgia and other SEC schools. After starting three seasons, he entered the transfer portal with the intention of landing at Georgia Tech, but he first sat out the 2020 season. He joined the Yellow Jackets for the 2021 season and started all 12 games at left tackle. Cochran has vines for arms and decent flexibility to unleash his punch and widen edge defenders (zero sacks allowed in 2021). However, his upper and lower halves need to show better cohesiveness to answer the skill of NFL rushers. In the run game, he creates pop at contact but will fall off blocks with his narrow power base. Overall, Cochran is built for NFL work with his frame and athletic traits, but his technical growth will be the key to him unlocking a pro future as a swing tackle. GRADE: Priority Free Agent
  16. Ben Brown-Ole Miss 6-5 312 24 30 starts at RG and 10 at C....this is exactly what I wanted but for LG.....I still missed this guy. Wonder what his RAS was? Injury concern but high reward low risk. Like getting another 5th round pick The Athletic Writeup 7. BEN BROWN | Ole Miss 6051 | 312 lbs. | rSR. Vicksburg, Miss. (St. Aloysius) 5/19/1998 (age 23.94) #55 BACKGROUND: Timothy Benjamin “Ben” Brown grew up in Vicksburg and started playing pee-wee football at age 6. He attended St. Aloysius High, where he was a multi-sport standout and started on the offensive line from the first game of his freshman season. After receiving All-County and All-Region honors as a junior, Brown played both ways as a senior left tackle and defensive tackle, finishing with 37 tackles and 1.0 sack. On offense, he was named First Team All-State as he led an unit that ran for 2,596 yards and averaged 7.2 yards per carry. He also lettered in basketball, track (27’6.5 shot put) and powerlifting (placed fourth in the state in 2014). A three-star recruit out of high school, Brown was the No. 81 offensive tackle in the 2017 recruiting class and the No. 17 recruit in the state of Mississippi. He received interest from other SEC programs, but he grew up dreaming of playing for Ole Miss and committed almost immediately after he was offered. Brown became the seventh member of his family to sign with the Rebels, including his father (Tim), who played on the offensive line (1988-89), and both of his grandfathers. His paternal grandfather (Allen) was a First Team All-American (1964) and won two Super Bowls as a tight end with the Green Bay Packers (1966, 1967). His maternal grandfather (Bobby Robinson), uncle (Burkes), great uncle (Jerry) and his father’s cousin (Alton) also suited up for the Rebels. Ben proposed to his fiancée (Juliana Adams) in February 2021. He graduated cum laude with his degree in exercise science (December 2020) and is pursuing his master’s in health promotion. YEAR (GP/GS) POSITION NOTES 2017: Redshirted 2018: (12/12) RG SEC All-Freshman 2019: (12/12) RG 2020: (10/10) OC 2021: (6/6) RG Missed the final seven games due to injury Total: (40/40) 30 RG, 10 OC HT WT ARM HAND WING 40-YD 20-YD 10-YD VJ BJ SS 3C BP COMBINE 6051 312 34 3/8 10 1/4 81 3/4 - - - - - - - - (no workout – left elbow) PRO DAY 6045 313 33 3/4 10 1/4 82 - - - - - - - - (no workout – left elbow) STRENGTHS: Prototypical size, build and length … wide-based blocker who keeps his shoulders and feet aligned … his body strength is evident at contact, showing both efficiency and grip strength with his hands … anchors well and doesn’t allow nose tackles to uproot and move him … coordinated shuffle in short spaces, and works well as a tandem blocker … powerful run blocker and looks to be a battering ram (see 2021 Tennessee tape) … highly decorated in the classroom with the required intelligence for the NFL … started 40 consecutive games before his midseason injury as a senior … has double-digit starts in college at both guard and center. [146] WEAKNESSES: Gets himself in trouble when he overextends and bends at the waist … will struggle to last on an island to his average athletic traits … moving targets will give him trouble … needs to improve his lower body flexibility to quickly recover and re-leverage his base … he would benefit from better consistency with his punch timing and placement … has stiff knees as a run blocker and must improve his control and technique in his fits … his pads will rise as the play progresses … medicals need to be checked out after he missed the final seven games and most of the pre-draft process because of a torn distal biceps tendon that required surgery (October 2021). SUMMARY: A four-year starter at Ole Miss, Brown was the starting right guard in head coach Lane Kiffin’s zone-based scheme. A high school left tackle, he moved between guard and center during his time with the Rebels, starting 40 consecutive games before his biceps injury as a senior. Brown has vise grips for hands, and he works hard to stay connected both in pass protection and in the run game. However, his lower body will be late reacting to twitchy defensive linemen, leaving him off-balance in his attempts to recover. Overall, Brown isn’t a top-tier athlete and must play with better technical consistency, but he has the play strength and position flexibility to secure a backup role on the interior in the NFL. GRADE: 4th-5th Round
