I may end up eating some Crow on Thad Moss...— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) April 14, 2020
I'm WAY higher on him as a complete TE than most are.
It's alright though - won't be the first time; won't be the last- and I'll be elated if we can land him a round or two later than I expected!
Great article as always here. Really like how he talked about Moss's potential as an H-Back/FB. I think Rivera/Turner are looking for someone to fill that role https://t.co/eaepIPZyTV— Steve Shoup (@Steveospeak) April 14, 2020
Can we run 12 personnel with Logan Thomas and Richard Rodgers— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) April 14, 2020
...Asking for a friend
Draft thoughts: while Redskins might have the pick of the litter at TE and to a lesser extent WR at #66, the wisest move might be to take the best OT on the board. Starting quality tackles will go very quickly, while we can still find intriguing prospects at WR/TE in later rounds— Hogs Haven (@HogsHaven) April 14, 2020
Two names — neither are shockers — that are getting far more Top 10 buzz than they were a month ago at Combine:— Peter Schrager (@PSchrags) April 14, 2020
1. CJ Henderson, CB, Florida
2. Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia
DWAYNE HASKINS THREAD— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) April 14, 2020
There were plenty of struggles throughout his rookie season but there were also a lot of bright spots to build off of. His grades as a backup and starter reflect that:
30.6 passing grade (2 games as backup)
73.3 passing grade (Weeks 9-17) 10th best in NFL pic.twitter.com/BBe87zR8Xs
His first appearance against the Giants was not pretty. Haskins said himself that watching this game back "made him sick".— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) April 14, 2020
There's been a lot of reports about how the old coaching staff wasn't helping him develop and it really shows in these throws, he just didn't seem ready. pic.twitter.com/MjLSVX7xzH
His natural arm talent has always been one of his best traits and he shows it on these two plays as he's able to place these balls perfectly in between the corner and safety pic.twitter.com/rtvn464am8— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) April 14, 2020
The worst part of his game last year was his inaccuracy at times.— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) April 14, 2020
Accuracy in the short and intermediate areas was one of his strong suits in college but so far in the NFL, it hasn't been.
He had the 8th highest percentage of uncatchable passes in the league. pic.twitter.com/QWAB0aySTf
Making plays out of structure was a surprising but impressive part of his game last year.— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) April 14, 2020
This wasn't something you really saw from him in college, but in his rookie season, he showed he can maneuver outside of the pocket and make plays. pic.twitter.com/DyCKqdLP5G
One thing remains pretty clear heading into the 2020 NFL Draft: Coaches and evaluators have watched more tape this year than ever before. No workouts, no Pro Days… so much tape. Because there is nothing else to do.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 14, 2020
“Why is Damon Arnette not considered one of the top DBs in the Draft right now?” -Jeff Okudah pic.twitter.com/UriVEM3kHi— THE Bunch of Nuts Podcast (@bunch_nuts) April 14, 2020
DONT ASSUME!!! The biggest question you have to ask yourself when drafting @jordan3love is can you get rid of THIS ? Really good coaching can-but it takes time. It’s his biggest flaw & NEEDS to be corrected!! @MoveTheSticks -vision! #NFLDraft #TuesdayThoughts pic.twitter.com/zbPT809igv— Dan Orlovsky (@danorlovsky7) April 14, 2020

Christian McCaffrey had more first downs receiving last season than he did rushing.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) April 14, 2020
That's not sustainable at all, but in terms of receiving impact, what McCaffrey did last year was remarkable.
58 first downs!!
2nd most by a RB in last 25 years? Larry Centers had 45 in 1995.

The sheer number of people — and amount — the XFL and Vince McMahon aren’t paying is crazy. https://t.co/wl7ndBkhZU— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 13, 2020
