Clay’s NFL Draft Cheat Sheet – Week 8

Clayton Smarslok with his weekly college football cheat sheet…

What a week in college football! There’s the saying, “Everyone loves an underdog,” and if that is the case, everyone had a great Saturday during week seven. There were seven ranked teams, (four in the top-10) that lost to a team either ranked lower than them or weren’t even ranked. That doesn’t include the other five ranked opponents that let the game go down to the wire. That was an exciting week that’ll be hard to top but let’s see week eight bares in comparison.

After a very entertaining week six of the college football season where three top-10 teams found their first loss of the season, we now enter week seven that contains some of the best games at this point of the season. No… Alabama is still not playing a good team but there are still three matchups between top-17 teams to watch today. Between that and prospects building their brand for the draft, it should be an excitement filled Saturday.

Clay’s NFL Draft Cheat Sheet – Week 3 Edition

Clayton Smarslok with his week 3 college football cheat sheet…

The Jets were dominant on Monday night and are on pace for a 16-0 season so no need to look at top prospects anymore. Okay, now with that bad joke out of the way, it really was a tremendous start to the season but there is a long way to go and the Jets are still looked at as a mid to lower tier team at the moment. After a couple weeks of the college season have past us, scouts are getting a better idea of what players to look at. Here are some that you should as well.

New York Jets 2019 Draft Watchlist: Volume II, RBs Edition

Connor Rogers with a New York Jets NFL Draft watchlist for 2019, focusing on the running back position…

When the New York Jets gave Isaiah Crowell a modest three year, $12 million deal this offseason, they essentially slapped a band aid on their running back group.

Crowell, who is offered very minimal guaranteed money beyond this season, is a fine player to pair with Bilal Powell in the backfield.

Fine: not spectacular, not poor – just mediocre. With the 29 year old Powell set to hit free agency after this year, the position is a key spot to watch for the 2019 offseason as the unit could undergo a makeover.

With that note, the college football season and running back draft class will be a vital area to watch this year. Here are a few early names to put the spotlight on for your watchlist.
