College Scouting...

The wrinkle that made this particular dynasty league irresistable is the fact that it has a college draft every August where you can pick 2 college players to reserve on a taxi squad. You can then follow these players through the college season and hope they develop into future high NFL draft picks who you get to keep without using a rookie draft pick on them in the spring. I have pick #4 and #21, so in this post I will rank players #1-21 along with notes and links to video. I will also keep a list of prospects that just missed the cut so I can track them for future consideration.

1-RB Marcus Lattimore
knee injury, special talent/gamebreaker
2-WR Keenan Allen
3-WR Da'Rick Rogers
behavior issues
4-RB Giovanni Bernard
torn ACL freshman year, may not come out early, could be another LeSean McCoy/Ray Rice
2011vsGeorgia Tech
5-WR Robert Woods  not elite size/ thin, body type Bruce/Holt esque
6-WR Justin Hunter  knee injury, Moss-like ability
7-WR Sammy Watkins
8-WR Marqise Lee
9-QB Tyler Wilson
intelligent, composed, lost a lot of WR talent
10-QB Logan Thomas
tall and mobile, reminds me of Daunte Culpepper
11-RB Ray Graham
elite type-moves, solid personality, needs to improve size, knee injury
12-RB Christine Michael
solid with intangibles, could be first senior RB taken, late season ACL, short recovery
13-WR Marquess Wilson
doesn't seperate, re-David Nelson
14-RB Knile Davis
3 ankle injuries!, fumbling issues, last feature type back
15-RB Malcolm Brown
the next AP?te
16-WR Aaron Mellette
small school, non-elite competition, no leaping ability?
17-WR Terrence Williams
product of RGIII?
18-RB Montee Ball
heavy workload, intelligence with "it" factor
19-TE Tyler Eifert
top te prospect, not a priority with Jimmy Graham locked in
20-RB Andre Ellington
intelligence a minus, durablility
WR Cobi Hamilton (Arkansas)
RB Zac Stacy (Vanderbilt)
RB Cameron Marshall (Ariz. St.)
RB Joseph Randle (Oklahoma State) scat back? intelligence (-)
RB Stepfan Taylor (Stanford) no stand out traits, future solid backup?
RB Cierre Wood (Notre Dame) no stand out traits, future backup?
