  • Boiler Room: RB Joe Bergeron

    Boiler Room: RB Joe Bergeron

    Former Texas running back Joe Bergeron has size and strength, but these two qualities alone do not make a powerful NFL runner — see Andre Williams  Joe Bergeron is 6-1, 232 pounds with thighs that resemble Earl Campbell’s. The big back scored 25 touchdowns in three years with the Longhorns, earning 1592 career yards from […]

    Football Outsiders: Rutgers TE Tyler Kroft

    There’s a growing diversity of players that are labeled tight ends in the NFL.

  • Boiler Room: WR Kevin White

    Boiler Room: WR Kevin White

    With receivers like WVU’s Kevin White, it’s often how you start and not how you finish — especially in the red zone.  A player whose stock is rising this year is West Virginia wide receiver Kevin White.

  • Boiler Room: Auburn WR Sammie Coates

    Boiler Room: Auburn WR Sammie Coates

    Coates is a great athlete, but a raw receiver. Two plays reveal where he struggles, but why there’s good reason for optimism for his professional development. FoxSports reporter Bruce Feldman has Sammie Coates as his “freak dela creme” on his annual list of great college football athletes. If you choose to click on the link, you’ll […]
