      I know a few people are getting logged out too quickly. I don't have the answer to that yet.   However, one change that occurred is that there is no longer a log in name and a separate display name. The upgrade discarded the log in name and now uses the display name. So, to log in:   Username: <display name> Password: <your password>   If you need to contact me to find out what your display name is use: Contact Us  and we can get things sorted out.

There are several top prospects playing today through Saturday as we look toward the biggest draft in this team's recent history. I did a quick breakdown on the cfb board - this is only Big 10 and their week 1 opponents because that is what I know the best. Using a combination of top 150 player lists and "way too early" 1-2 round 2018 mock drafts....

 

Week 1 schedule - draft eligible names to watch per a combination of cfb top 150 players, and mock drafts. This is Big 10 games only, and their opponents. Star notes my own endorsement player as NFL prospect. No star means I either don't endorse , haven't watched closely enough, or they haven't played enough yet for evaluation.

 

8/31

OSU at IU 8pm ESPN (MegaCast on all ESPN channels - coach's film room version on ESPN News would be a good one if interested in any of these players)

IU -

Tegray Scales LB*

Simmie Cobbs, Jr. WR*

OSU -

Mike Weber, Jr. RB*

Sam Hubbard DE/OLB*

JT Barrett, QB

Denzel Ward, CB*

Jerome Baker, LB*

Billy Price, C*

Tyquan Lewis, DE*

Dre'Mont Jones, DT*

Jamarco Jones, OT*

Parris Campbell, WR

Damon Webb, S

 

Washington at Rutgers 8pm Fox Sports 1

Washington-

Jake Browning, QB

Vita Vea, DT

Dante Pettis, WR

Azeem Taylor, LB

Miles Gaskin, RB

JoJo McIntosh, S

Trey Adams, OT

 

9/1

Utah St at Wisconsin 9pm ESPN

Wisc - Troy Fumigalli, TE*

 

9/2

Wyoming @ Iowa 12pm BTN

Wyoming-Josh Allen, QB

Iowa- Josey Jewell, LB*

 

BGSU @ MSU 12pm ESPNU

MSU-

Brian Allen, C

LJ Scott, RB*

 

Akron @ PSU 12pm ABC

PSU-

Mike Gesicki, TE*

Deebo Samuel, WR

DaeSean Hamilton, WR

Marcus Allen, S

Saquan Barkley, RB*

Trace McSorley, QB

 

Michigan @ Florida 3:30pm ABC

Michigan-

Maurice Hurst, DT*

Wilton Speight, QB*

 

Florida -

Martez Ivey, G

Duke Dawson, CB

 

Note: WR Antonio Callaway for Florida is suspended week 1. So didn't list him. He's a top 100 player.

 

Simmie Cobbs for IU was recently arrested but I expect him to play some or all of the game.

 

Mike Weber Jr for OSU has a hammy - expected to be ok but i won't be surprised if he sits with Sooners in 10 days.

 

I stuck to the top 150 and 2018 mock drafts (which only go up to 2 rounds at this point) on my games but there are 2019 eligible guys to watch like Rashan Gary (DT, UM) and Nick Bosa (DL, OSU), 2020 eligible JK Dobbins (RB OSU), Chase Young (DL, OSU). and a number of other 2018 eligible Buckeyes I have my eye on even though they didn't make the list - Jalyn Holmes, DE (freak), Chris Worley, MLB, Marcus Baugh, TE, Johnnie Dixon, WR, Kendall Sheffield, CB

Really like Mason Rudolph and feel like he will be the QB that starts climbing draft boards when the season starts. Also really like James Washington but feel like round three is a little low for him. As it stands right now, and its early, I'd expect him to go late round one.

 

I'd say the same for Chubb who is currently considered as a 1st round pick. Otherwise this looks good to me.

I completely agree, that is why I would be so happy with this draft. btw, Washington was picked with our 2nd 2nd. I think chubb will be an early 1st, Washington will be a mid first, and I really like Rudolph. If we got these picks for the first 3 rounds, this could be the best or 2nd best draft in team history.

There is not one chance that the Bills will pick at 15. I mean none whatsoever.

 

Thanks for the effort but why not do one with the Bills drafting a #5.

One player I really want to watch is QB Jarrett Stidham at Auburn. Transfer from Baylor. Very talented - could be a top pick. They play GA Southern Sat 7:30pm SEC Network

 

Game of the Week should be Noles v. Tide

Fairburn has the Bills with OK St. QB Mason Rudolph at 6 and USC LB Cameron Smith at 25.

 

@MatthewFairburn

The haters and losers said it was too early for a 2018 mock draft. I still wrote one. They'll be furious

There is ZERO chance the Bills are taking a QB in Round One with Nathan Peterman, 2017 Rookie of the Year already solidly in place as their starting signal caller.

I find it hard to imagine the Bills picking 15th.

 

I'm expecting something in the 3-7 overall range, at which point we need to trade up for an elite QB.

If that happens I will not complain at all.

More like R1P05

JOSH ALLEN

 

They'll need to move up to #2 to get one of the elite QBs.

 

Good thing they have tons of ammo to get it done.

If both of the teams with the top two selections have a need at QB, it won't matter how much ammo they'll have.

True.

 

I guess I'm hoping a team like LA, Cleveland or Chicago wind up in one of those spots and has enough faith in their existing young QB and wants to trade down.

 

I also won't rule us out from being the 2nd worst team in the NFL this year. I think our offense is going to be just awful.

I am most decidedly not a Mason Rudolph-in-the-first guy at the moment...obviously my 2017 season evaluations could change that.

 

Right now, my QB board based on offseason work-ups looks like this:

 

1. Mayfield

2. Rosen

3/4/5. Allen/Darnold/Falk (no separation at the moment)

6. Rudolph

 

Other guys I've reviewed in detail include Browning, Ferguson, McSorely, Thorson, Fitzgerald, Speight, Stanton, Francois, and Littman, but they're all in tier 2 or 3 for me at the moment.

 

I'm looking forward to getting enough video of L. Jackson and J. Stidham to put together an evaluation on them as well.

The best case scenario IMO is Luck is out for the year, Indy goes like 4-12 and the same thing with Chicago. Both have QB's.

If Kizer shows some promise and Cleveland finishes at the bottom....could be another good trade partner.
