    RSP Boiler Room No. 121: RB Nick Chubb (Georgia), Balance, Flexion, And Footwork

    Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room examines the impressive footwork and balance of 2018 NFL Draft prospect, RB Nick Chubb. Sometimes the tiniest details are the most impressive. This touchdown run from Georgia RB Nick Chubb seems like a ho-hum play from the broadcast angle. From the end zone view, we see that Chubb does something special […]

    RSP Film Room No. 121: RB Saquon Barkley (Penn State)

    Matt Waldman’s RSP examines the decision-making flaws of 2018 NFL Draft prospect RB Saquon Barkley. Big, fast, agile, creative, and versatile, what if I told you that Saquon Barkley wasn’t a sure thing as an NFL starter? Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? After all, the tools are tremendous. Watch enough tape and it appears that Barkley […]

    RSP Boiler Room No. 120: QB Kyle Lauletta (Richmond), Quiet Feet

    Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room examines the pocket footwork of 2018 NFL Draft Prospect Kyle Lauletta. I recently studied Kyle Lauletta’s performance against William & Mary. The box score was ugly — 221 yards, 2 interceptions, 4 dropped passes, 3 sacks, and a fumbled shotgun snap. As is often the case, the box score provided […]

    RSP Film Room No. 118: RB John Kelly (Tennessee), Extended Look

    Matt Waldman’s Rookie Scouting Portfolio examines RB John Kelly, a 2018 NFL Draft Prospect from Tennessee with an impressive skill set.  Alvin Kamara is lighting up the league as part of a fantastic Saints ground attack. I thought Kamara was an excellent fit for the Saints. His quickness, agility, receiving skill, and balance against indirect […]

    RSP Boiler Room No. 119: An Underrated Facet Of Pocket Presence

    Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room examines the pocket skills of 2018 NFL Draft Prospect Trace McSorley and NFL QBs Jared Goff and Russell Wilson. Quarterbacks must win from the pocket in the NFL. This is a true statement. It becomes false when we try to apply that maxim too rigidly to a quarterback’s height, weight, […]

    Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room No. 118: QB Baker Mayfield, Coverage Reads, And Footwork

    Matt Waldman’s RSP examines QB Baker Mayfield’s ability to cycle through progressions and deliver with balanced footwork.  Baker Mayfield is in the news after he grabbed his crotch during a victory over Kansas. Without seeing the game or reading much about what happened, I imagine the action was in response to the Kansas team captains […]

  • RSP Boiler Room No. 117: QB Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma) Owning The Pocket

    RSP Boiler Room No. 117: QB Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma) Owning The Pocket

    Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room examines a facet of Oklahoma QB and 2018 NFL Draft prospect Baker Mayfield’s command of the pocket that must improve.   Johnny Manziel, Russell Wilson, and Drew Brees are three quarterbacks I’ve seen as comparison points for Baker Mayfield. Whether or not I see merit in any of them is not […]

  • RSP Boiler Room No. 116: WR James Washington (OK St.) Vertical Prowess

    RSP Boiler Room No. 116: WR James Washington (OK St.) Vertical Prowess

    Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room examines Oklahoma State wide receiver James Washington’s ability to control his opponent in the vertical game.  There are several facets of vertical route running that are as important, if not more important than deep speed. Not all of them are essential, but most winning vertical routes feature a receiver showcasing […]

  • RSP Boiler Room No. 114: Top RB Play Is Brains Over Brawn

    RSP Boiler Room No. 114: Top RB Play Is Brains Over Brawn

    Matt Waldman’s RSP Boiler Room examines a common issue with college and NFL running back development with Miami RB Mark Walton’s sophomore tape as an example. Brains over brawn. At some point, every good running back must develop craft to accompany their physical skill or they will not become competent professionals. Football analysts and media […]
