Scherff has become underrated because of some bad reps last year, but overall he’s still probably their closest player to being in the elite tier of players at his position. I think Ioannidis is under appreciated by Skins fans too. Most know he’s good, but not how good. https://t.co/QsjOKmKYCN— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) April 2, 2020
I think Haskins has the arm to push the ball down the field as this system typically requires, but his deep ball accuracy needs plenty of work. I think the way Scott Turner likes to move guys around and go empty/quick game suits Haskins game a lot. https://t.co/zfHxBIXATs— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) April 2, 2020
I like Haskins, there’s talent there. I think Zampese will really help clean up his mechanics, which will improve things. Allen could start just because of chance there’s no offseason or time to practice the new system. https://t.co/fGJkgdUUIU— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) April 2, 2020
Favourite to study are Trent (still technically on the team), Ioannidis, Scherff, McLaurin and Kendall Fuller now he’s back https://t.co/snrGzj7SCg— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) April 2, 2020
LANDON COLLINS THREAD:— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) April 1, 2020
Landon is always going to be at his best when he's around the line of scrimmage.
Here are his grade splits when lined up in the box vs when he's lined up as a deep safety:
- Box (582 snaps), 77.1 overall grade
- Deep safety (254 snaps), 51.7 overall grade pic.twitter.com/NzH5eYe68L
Don't try to use a WR to block him... It usually doesn't work out so well pic.twitter.com/Geh8yziRdb— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) April 1, 2020
Now for his coverage breakdown.— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) April 1, 2020
The thing that worries me about Landon in coverage is his struggles in man to man against some TEs, especially the ones in the Redskins division. pic.twitter.com/fTFou3Utg0
It's not all bad in coverage.— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) April 1, 2020
His ability to recognize screens is fun to watch. The first screen against the 49ers is played to perfection.
For the second play, you can see how quickly he recognizes the screen but just can't make the tackle when he gets there pic.twitter.com/8pA0EdnpyA
He's so good inside the box, he could potentially play WILL— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) April 1, 2020
Raiders and former Saints’ CB Eli Apple were unable to finalize a contract, per sources, and Apple remains a free agent. Another one added to the list.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 2, 2020

Maybe he's training to play defense for Jacksonville? pic.twitter.com/35cI9CKR2U— x-TJDMCR (@TJDMCR) April 2, 2020

I interviewed @LSUfootball OT Saahdiq Charles (@saahdiq) for @TheDraftWire. The #Eagles, #Bears, #Packers, #Redskins & #Chiefs are among the teams that have shown interest.https://t.co/M6ILDM90rg#NFLDraft | #GeauxTigers— Justin M (@JustinM_NFL) April 2, 2020
More and more tagged players - Joe Thuney, Kenyan Drake, Brandon Scherff, Derrick Henry - aren’t waiting to sign their tenders. In uncertain times, players opting for certainty. https://t.co/VUZJqp0bpE— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 2, 2020
Eagles have done some work on 2020 NFL draft quarterbacks. I think they'll take one Day 3.— Eric Edholm (@Eric_Edholm) April 2, 2020
Teams indicated overwhelming opposition to renewing the replay for pass interference rule in the postseason survey done by the competition committee, remember.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) April 2, 2020
There are "areas of support" on NFL competition committee, source says, for the "sky judge" proposal (called a "booth umpire" in the proposal), along with a separate proposal to add a "senior technology advisor to the referee" to each officiating crew.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) April 2, 2020
It's not clear yet, however, if the competition committee will endorse the sky judge proposal, which was pushed by NFL coaches last offseason but had little support elsewhere. The competition committee's deliberations continue.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) April 2, 2020
How does new #Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar fit "the Seattle mold"?— 710 ESPN Seattle (@710ESPNSeattle) April 2, 2020

Justin Herbert is so interesting to watch. You kind of get lulled to sleep by the RPOs and wide open windows and you don't know what to make of him, and then all the sudden he'll have to roll out of the pocket and rip the ball 40 yards down the field, and it's jaw dropping.— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) April 2, 2020
This film study is 2 hours long (we timestamped plays/games so you can find what you want)— Dan Hatman (@Dan_Hatman) April 1, 2020
We really want these to be educational/informative.
I hope you take a look and share your feedback so we can get better.

From me and @RapSheet: Today, #Bama QB Tua Tagovailoa participated voluntarily in a medical re-check facilitated by the NFL Combine with an independent doctor that was selected by NFL team physicians, per Tua’s reps. Results were "were overwhelmingly positive."— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) April 2, 2020
This is the problem for teams. It's still going to be a leap of faith for whoever takes him. All Tua & Co can do is show them everything looks as good as possible right now.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) April 2, 2020
