Oh wait, the Bills did listen. You're welcome, Buffalo. Without further ado, let's get rocking on the NFL Draft. Joe Burrow - QB.
Regional Combine Invitational
The theory is sound. Just look at what Nick Bosa did for the 49ers last year. But, as I'm sure you've realized, the 49ers already had their franchise quarterback on the roster when they turned in the card for Bosa. And as much as I love Andy Daltonit seems like you guys are ready to go your separate ways. He's the Toyota Corolla you might still have an emotional attachment to because he took you to five straight playoff appearances -- so what if the hubcap fell off every fifth mile?
However, if you're being honest with yourself, you know it's time to upgrade to that decked-out Tesla you've had your eye on. So take Burrow, make him your franchise QB and let's kick this turnaround into gear. Chase Young - Edge. And again, I get why Tua Tagovailoa is an appealing option here. Especially if you believe Tua is going to be a generational QB. I love it.
2020 NFL Draft: How Ashtyn Davis went from walk-on to Cal star safety
Great thought. I personally think he will. But here's why you have to take Young here: Your roster is several players away right now. And so if the season doesn't turn out so hot for you guys, and Dwayne Haskins struggles, you could very well be in the mix for Trevor Lawrence next year. You can either take the cornerback everybody wants you to take.Top 50 NFL Prospects Heading Into the 2020 Draft
Or you can take the best defender on the board. But what you really need to do is to get the Dolphins or Chargers to move up here for Tua. Because you're still going to end up with one of those stud defenders regardless, and you can grab some extra picks, too. And for the record, I'm going with Simmons because, well, do you even watch college football, brah?
Jeff Okudah - CB. BTW, remember cocktail parties that weren't online? Okudah's the bacon-wrapped shrimp you simply cannot pass up. Now, you could try to trade down a few spots to a QB-needy team and come away with an offensive tackle like Tristan Wirfs.
But if Okudah is on the board at 4, and you stay put, then grab the corner who will help you avoid ranking 31st in touchdowns allowed to receivers 22 again. Tua Tagovailoa - QB.Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year. Millions of people will spend the day standing in lines, scrambling between stores and scouring the internet for the biggest bargains and the perfect gifts.
NFL teams might not be searching for a low-priced fondue set, but you can bet they have shopping lists—for the offseason. Every team, no matter how great, has holes to fill. Many will try to find solutions through free agency—where opening day is like a reverse Black Friday—while others shop primarily through the draft. Either way, they'll be looking to buy next March and April. With roughly a quarter left in the season, here's an early look at each team's shopping list for It's always fun to go shopping for that special someone.
For the Arizona Cardinals, that someone is rookie quarterback Kyler Murray. Murray, who has been impressive—14 touchdowns, five picks and a passer rating of Strengthening the offensive line has to be the top priority, as Murray has been sacked 35 times.
Given his mobility and ability to avoid the rush, that's alarming. Arizona can further help Murray combat the pass rush by adding a workhorse running back. It appears that David Johnson is no longer that guy. The former 2,yard player has seen a heavily reduced role in recent weeks. While the Cardinals invested in the wide receiver position in this past draft Andy Isabella, Hakeem Butler, KeeSean Johnsonthey still need a top-tier receiving tight end. We've seen tight ends like Travis Kelce, Zach Ertz and George Kittle help their young quarterbacks tremendously in recent years, and Murray needs his version of that player.
The Atlanta Falcons don't have to worry about supporting a young and inexperienced quarterback. They do, however, need to focus on maximizing the remaining window with players like Matt Ryan and Julio Jones.
The Falcons have the foundation of a special offense, but their defense has left a lot to be desired. Atlanta used first-round picks on offensive linemen Kaleb McGary and Chris Lindstrom in April, so it can afford to prioritize the defense this offseason.He was supposed to show off his skills at the Senior Bowl and have his track speed flourish at the NFL Scouting Combine, having him rise up draft boards.
A groin injury held him out of both showcases. The former Cal safety was then supposed to impress more scouts at his pro day and fly across the county while meeting with multiple teams. This is just another obstacle after Davis took down numerous road blocks to become a star in Berkeley, and now he is expected to be selected in the first three rounds of the NFL Draft.
Instead of dwelling, Davis is looking at the big picture. Just having to work and do my meetings from home is a pretty small problem to have. I try to keep that in perspective and just look forward to the good things I got. He was a zero-star recruit who still dreamed of playing college football. He didn't become attractive to schools until he started running track. He placed fifth in the entire state for both the meter high hurdles and meter hurdles. It worked, too. Davis landed on Cal after crossing the other three off his list.
Turning into a track star at Cal was relatively easy for Davis. His That was the first step in becoming the coveted prospect he is today. He redshirted as a walk-on in and played in 12 games in his freshman year, starting the final three at cornerback. He played five seasons in the NFL, and Davis credits him with everything he knows about playing safety.
Over his junior and senior seasons, Davis totaled tackles, six interceptions, nine passes defensed, three fumble recoveries and forced a fumble. With his speed, range, versatility and physicality at 6-foot-1 and pounds, Davis now is a muscled missile zeroing in on his target.
This is played perfectly by Cal S Ashtyn Davis. Great range to get there and perfect hit to break it up. Davis is a DUDE. Ashtyn Davis is one of my favorite players in this draft. Both of these plays show why. Great range and instincts as a free safety with top notch closing speed and a violent blitzer pic.
In just over two weeks, the former walk-on is headed to the NFL. Davis still is regularly attending his regular physical therapy sessions, though everything else is far from regular.
Davis said he has snuck onto local fields to get position work in as much as he can, and he already has been kicked off a few times. Video has been the basis of Davis' workout creativity, as well as his pre-draft process.
He has spoken with the 49ers, the same team he idolized as a child. Davis grew up with half of his family rooting for the Raiders and the other half rooting for the 49ers. The two-time All-Pac safety spoke over the phone with 49ers general manager John Lynch, who was a nine-time Pro Bowl safety himself.
His Berkeley education came out clear as day. Video conferences vary by team. Each has a different approach. Throughout these conversations and video conferences, Davis is staying true to himself.It will not fill the receiver hole, but the Fighting Irish added a preferred walk-on to their recruiting class over the weekend.
Charlie Selna of Atherton, California, announced he will be attending Notre Dame in the fall as a preferred walk-on. Thank you dpeloqu1 and NDFootball for this opportunity. Selna lists himself at 6 feet, 7 inches tall and pounds in his Twitter profile. His highlight video shows a defensive end causing disruptions and a tight end willing to engage in run blocking. Notre Dame head football coach Brian Kelly met the media in a very non-traditional way Wednesday as he updated the world on everything related to the Notre Dame football program.
If you'd like, you can check out that entire press conference that took place over Zoom, here. One of the several things Kelly was asked and spoke about was the status of the season-opener that is supposed to take place in Ireland the last Saturday of August. Will Notre Dame and Navy be making the trip? Desperate times call for desperate measures. If you're working from home these days you've probably dealt with your new reality of Zoom or Skype conferences instead of your normal meetings with co-workers.
Well, things aren't much different in the college sports world. Whether you're a media member or the head coach at a well-known football program like Notre Dame, you've had to adjust your life. Brian Kelly held a very non-traditional press conference on Wednesday where the Navy game in Ireland was addressed, the importance of May 15 was examined and Kelly spoke about his responsibilities on Pro Day as well You'd be hard-pressed to find any conversation we've had where the "Snow Bowl" game between No.

You may well be facing players who are either in the NFL or have NFL experience and are trying to hook back on with a team. Choose which NFL team you would like to play for. If you have no preference, research each team website to see if they post any announcements about open tryouts or mini-tryouts in your area.
You will most often find that they do hold camps across the country in the early spring to find new players. Put together a highlight reel about your prior experience. Any film footage of your playing days could help you get an invitation to a tryout. If the coaches like what they see on the DVD or CD, then they can contact you and tell you when and where to be for their tryout. There are 32 NFL teams, so visit their websites and find their contact information.
Send several copies addressed to the coaching staff to ensure that someone will get it. Include your contact information as well. Attend an NFL evaluation camp. Contact the league to ask when they have the next one scheduled, and make plans to attend.
