NFL Draft 2018 – Striking Gold With Mid-Round Running Backs

Michael Nania on the problem with drafting running backs in the first round of the NFL Draft…

Saquon Barkley’s magic at Penn State has carried over to draft season – and with just two weeks until the NFL Draft, he has the football world considering him not only the best back in the draft, but a potential top two selection. While Barkley certainly possesses a tantalizing array of skills and traits, are NFL teams simply ignoring logic by valuing the running back position that highly?

Should Potential New York Jets QB Josh Rosen Shut Up And Throw?

Dalbin Osorio on why Josh Rosen should never “just shut up and throw”

“That’s just not me,” Josh Rosen says of the designer labels offered to him during an ESPN The Magazine shoot.

In a word: no. It is not him, just like him having to shut up and throw is not him. Josh Rosen, the best QB in this draft to this writer, has been heavily scrutinized more for what happens to him off the field than anything that could happen to him on the field. Before they even mention the 61% completion rate, they talk about the hat he wore to send a message on a golf course. Without discussing his two to one interception ratio, they rip apart his comments defending current Jacksonville Jaguar RB Leonard Fournette for not playing in a Bowl Game. Rosen openly talks about wanting to win multiple Super Bowls, and the retort becomes “he didn’t even win a Pac 12 title.” That is maybe the only time the criticism is kept on the field. You hear their tone though: less is more, they say, and Rosen needs to start giving less.

NFL Player Development – Positional Competition

Dan Essien explores the effects of positional competition when it comes to player development in the NFL…

The New York Jets are in the process of rebuilding their roster. A key element to that is player development. One of the most underrated elements of player development in football is positional competition. It’s true that talent often rises to the top regardless of what’s around them. But an often overlooked potential accelerant to development is who’s making them better in the days between games. Typically the best help a player can get midweek is great coaching. But often its their teammates that drive them to get better. I’m not talking about players at the same position competing here, though. I’m talking about iron sharpening iron. Offensive players making defensive players better and visa versa. QB vs. secondary, safety vs. tight end, wide receiver vs. cornerback, etc. Let’s take a look at the role of counter-positional competition in player development.
