  • RSP Rorschach: Michigan WR/TE Devin Funchess

    RSP Rorschach: Michigan WR/TE Devin Funchess

    Some plays are like Rorschach inkblots because there’s no definitive answer to why they unfold the way they do. This series examines plays that have more than one viable explanation and may be too difficult to draw a single conclusion. The fun part is that you have a voice in it. Rorschach No.4 Devin Funchess […]

  • Tipping Their Hand: WRs Jaelen Strong and Ty Montgomery

    Tipping Their Hand: WRs Jaelen Strong and Ty Montgomery

    Vaunted wide receiver prospects Jaelen Strong and Ty Montgomery demonstrate that when it comes to the a craft of playing the position, a slow mind negates size, strength, and speed.  Wide receiver is a deceptive position by nature — both from the standpoint of how it’s played and scouting NFL prospects. There are always great […]

  • Boiler Room: WR DeVante Parker

    Boiler Room: WR DeVante Parker

    Selling a vertical route starts with the first few steps off the line. See why this is so important with successful route running. It’s hard not to like Louisville wide receiver DeVante Parker as an NFL prospect. He’s tall, fast, and has a quick first-step with the ball in his hands. I also like his […]

  • QB Logan Thomas: Look Out Below!!!

    QB Logan Thomas: Look Out Below!!!

    Utter the name “Logan Thomas” on Twitter and assign some positives to his game before the NFL Draft and the most likely responses coming your way were derision and confusion.  The cynicism stems from the failures of NFL teams that have consistently pursued big, strong quarterbacks without enough regard for pocket presence, capacity to learn […]

  • Listening to The Whispers: Changes to The RSP — WRs and TEs

    Listening to The Whispers: Changes to The RSP — WRs and TEs

    Matt profiles changes to his TE/WR checklists and how his process encourages an interplay between logic and insight. I have spent the offseason reviewing and updating my evaluation criteria and scoring values for the Rookie Scouting Portfolio publication. I covered quarterbacks and running backs last week. Today it’s the wide receivers and tight ends. The […]

  • Listening to The Whispers: Changes to The 2015 RSP — Running Backs

    Listening to The Whispers: Changes to The 2015 RSP — Running Backs

    I’m about to find out if I can make a difficult part of my life seem funny in a post that took as direct of a path as one of Barry Sanders’ runs.  I have spent the offseason reviewing and updating my evaluation criteria and scoring values for the Rookie Scouting Portfolio publication. At the […]

  • Listening to the Whispers: Changes to 2015 RSP — Quarterbacks

    Listening to the Whispers: Changes to 2015 RSP — Quarterbacks

    Last week, I made changes to my scoring criteria for the RSP. This week, I share them with you. Appreciating the Subtleties of Life I’m learning to listen to the whispers before the voices become shouts. I believe there’s enormous power in becoming a dedicated observer of subtlety. This is especially true when it comes to your […]

  • Slippery: Falcons RB Devonta Freeman

    Slippery: Falcons RB Devonta Freeman

    Falcons RB Devonta Freeman has “Slippery Power.” Find out what this means and why “Phone Booth Quicks” are necessary.  Ahmad Bradshaw is one of my favorite running backs of the past 10 years. It has nothing to do with his physical talent — there are dozens of runners with significantly better physiques and athleticism to […]

  • William Andrews vs. Ronnie Lott

    William Andrews vs. Ronnie Lott

    A couple of years ago I recalled a childhood memory of William Andrews taking a swing pass and running through Ronnie Lott. After scoring from 70-plus yards, a woozy Lott was helped off the field. I’ve been looking for this play online for years to see if my memory was accurate. I found the play […]
