Rob, I like seeing the names and all but can you make a link to these players so I don't have to search all day for stats on these guys?

Love the blog by the way.

Hi Jeremy,

We'll try to cover as many of the prospects between now and the draft, obviously creating a link for each of these guys would take a while. I would recommend simply typing the name of the prospect you want stats for in google alongside 'ESPN', this will take you to the prospects stat page.

Excellent post as usual Rob, great info. Looks to be like an awesome combine.

Jeremy Brown said...

Thanks, Rob.

Just thought I would try, you know.

Great stuff, looking forward to more.

What is your opinion of Ryan Matthews. What round is he projected at and does he ft the zone scheme?

Rob Staton said...

I'm not a big fan of Matthews. I think both he and Jonathan Dwyer are very over rated. He offers nothing special - no great speed or burst, doesn't have that ability to push the pile. He takes what he's given as a runner. When I watched him this year, I saw a 3-4 round prospect. A few days later, he suddenly started appearing in the first round of mock drafts. I couldn't possibly justify spending then #40 pick on him, let alone a first rounder.
