Prospect Profile: Jadeveon Clowney

A freakish athlete in a 6-5, 266-pound frame, Clowney has the ability to single handedly take over a game.  Many draft pundits compare him to former star Jevon Kearse as well as the Buffalo Bill’s Mario Williams, a former number one overall selection, but with even more raw athleticism.  A few media experts have said he is the most hyped defensive prospect since Lawrence Taylor....

Justin Gilbert

Prospect Profile: Justin Gilbert

In a deep draft, the cornerback position is robust with talent.  With great debate over who will be the first of many skilled CB’s to be drafted, many were eager to see which prospect would elevate his game at the Scouting Combine.  While there are plenty of talented defensive backs worthy of being a high pick, Justin Gilbert staked his claim to be an early selection....

Sammy Watkins

When talking about Michigan’s Taylor Lewan, one word comes to mind. Nasty. The tackle possesses the type of mean streak on the field that coaches crave, playing a physical brand of ball until the whistle is blown.  Constantly looking for an opponent to hit, that demeanor combined with his outstanding skillset has Lewan poised to be an early selection in the 2014 NFL Draft....
