Denver Broncos 2020 Predictions: Drew Lock

Denver Broncos 2020 Schedule and Game-by-Game Predictions

Jacob Dunne | May 14th, 2020

For the first time in five years, the Denver Broncos have a legitimate reason to be optimistic. Ever since Peyton Manning rode off into the sunset following the Super Bowl 50 win against the Carolina Panthers in 2016, the Broncos have been STRUGGLING to find an answer at quarterback.

Los Angeles Chargers draft review Justin Herbert

Los Angeles Chargers Draft Review

Sam Schneider | May 1st, 2020

The Los Angeles Chargers started free agency like a shock-wave. The right side of the offensive line was fortified and they added key pieces to the defense that made it potentially one of the best in the league in a weaponized division. Coming off a 5-11 season that included three straight losses to close the campaign, that was only the start. Continue reading

Fantasy Rookie Quarterbacks to Watch

Brady Podloski | April 23rd, 2020 

The NFL draft is TODAY(!!!!), and for Dynasty and Superflex players it is an important few days. These are the days where everyone sees where the quarterback will go and if they will have an opportunity to entrench themselves in a starting role. These four quarterbacks will be significantly influenced by the draft. Where each goes and the round they go in, will dictate if they are legitimate starters on your fantasy roster.

Mason’s 2020 NFL Mock Draft 4.0 (Round One)

Mason Thompson | April 21st, 2020

It’s finally draft week. All of the film that everyone has watched culminates this weekend. The draft will look more different than ever before as we will be watching Roger Goodell announce the first-round picks from his basement on Thursday night. This is my final two-round mock, which includes six trades in the first round. There are plenty of surprises along the way, and I feel this is realistic, yet it also consists of a lot of the craziness that comes with the draft each year. Let’s get into it, starting with the Bengals selection. Continue reading

2020 NFL Draft Rankings: Quarterbacks and Running Backs

The Scorecrow Scout Team | April 18th, 2020  

We are almost there! The 2020 NFL draft is almost here and it’s going to be a draft like no other in NFL history. However, once the draft starts and the picks start rolling, everyone will forget about how the draft is being done remotely and focus on who is being picked and what team is trading up. Here at The Scorecrow, five of our NFL draft scouts (Givanni Damico, Mason Thompson, Connor Neal, Byron Jewell, Brady Podloski) have put together a list of their top-five at each position.

2020 NFL Mock Draft: Quarantine Edition (Round One)

The Scorcrow NFL Draft Team | April 15th, 2020  

The 2020 NFL draft is a week away and it will be a draft like we’ve never seen before. No live events, teams unable to have a war room, and commissioner Rodger Goodell will be announcing the first round of the draft from his basement; all of this is because of COVID-19. Now hopefully, everyone is staying home and staying safe, but being under quarantine can drive a man (or six) bored out of his mind. So with extra time on our hands, six of our NFL draft experts (Mike Fanelli, Givanni Damico, Zach Gotlieb, Mason Thompson, Connor Neal, Brady Podloski) bring you a two-round mock draft.

Miami Dolphins Post Free Agency Seven Round Mock Draft

Brady Podloski | April 14th, 2020

The Miami Dolphins finished the season off strong, which was a result of the team’s head coach Brian Flores. Going forward, this team made significant signings to speed up the rebuilding window. Notably, the team made considerable signings with Ereck Flowers, Shaq Lawson, Emmanuel Ogbah, Jordan Howard, Kyle Van Noy, and Byron Jones. This team has completely shifted its defense, by adding short term players to high impact positions such as edge, corner, and linebacker.

Los Angeles Chargers Post Free Agency Seven Round Mock Draft

Sam Schneider | April 10th, 2020

The Los Angeles Chargers started off free agency with a bang, establishing a defense and couple offensive line pieces that should help them transition into the post Philip Rivers era. After shoring up the right side of the line with Bryan Bulaga and trading for Trai Turner, the left side was largely untouched. That lends itself to taking the first southpaw drafted since Tim Tebow ten years ago.

Post Free Agency 2020 NFL Mock Draft: Round One

Mike Fanelli & Givanni Damico | March 25th, 2020 

The 2020 NFL league year officially kicked off about a week ago. Since then we have had dozens and dozens of players move in free agency as well as several trades, including some no one saw coming. However, free agency is cooling off and most of the big name players have agreed to new deals. With the NFL draft less than a month away, it’s time to focus again on mock drafts.

Los Angeles Chargers Pre Free Agency Seven Round Mock Draft

Sam Schneider | March 5th, 2020 

The Los Angeles Chargers lost eleven games in 2019, leading them to earn the sixth overall spot in the 2020 NFL Draft. Nine of those eleven games were by one score. That one score narrative (which had unfortunately plagued Philip Rivers his whole career) came to a head last year and resulted in the franchise deciding to move on and not offer him a new deal. Disgruntled back Melvin Gordon held out for the first three weeks of the season before reporting to the team. He is also headed for a new team. The Chargers’ record was a direct result of neither one of these things. The team also lost tight end, Hunter Henry, for four weeks and the offensive line was completely decimated for much of the year.

Mason’s 2020 Mock Draft 2.0 (First Round)

Mason Thompson | February 27th, 2020 

The last mock draft I did was mid-December. The draft order wasn’t set and some of the players that I included in the first round such as Alex Leatherwood, Shaun Wade, Paulson Adebo, Travis Etienne, and Dylan Moses all returned to school. Now that we know who is eligible to be drafted and the fact it’s combine week, I decided to take a stab at another mock. For this mock, I decided to do two rounds as well as include several trades. I have infused six trades in the first round. Continue reading

Mike’s 2020 NFL Mock Draft 2.0 (Round One)

Mike Fanelli | February 17th, 2020 

The 2019 NFL season came and went in what feels like in a New York minute. However, the offseason is just getting started. Teams are beginning to cut veterans to open up cap space and the NFL Combine is almost here. Everyone loves a mock draft, so while we wait for the combine and then free agency to happen, enjoy my 2.0 mock draft. Today I will be sharing part one (the first round), which has six hypothetical trades in it. Part two (the second round) will be out tomorrow morning, so without further ado, the Cincinnati Bengals are on the clock.

Los Angeles Chargers 2019 Season Recap

Mason Thompson | January 15th, 2020

Many had the Chargers pegged for a long route to the postseason and potentially the Super Bowl. I for one had them ranked third overall in my preseason power rankings behind only the Patriots and Saints. The team had plenty of drama before the regular-season opener as Melvin Gordon was holding out for a new contract. Gordon would eventually end his holdout before week four. Superstar safety, Derwin James missed a significant amount of time with a foot injury suffered in mid-August. James would return by week 11, but it was too little too late. Continue reading

Studying Possible Las Vegas Raiders Draft Targets

Nick Popio | December 31st, 2019

Another football season is coming to an end which means a new league year is right around the corner. For the Oakland Raiders, it’s the beginning of a brand new era in Las Vegas. This historical move will officially commence on the night of April 23 in the aforementioned sin city. On that night the Raiders own two first-round picks that will become the new faces of the relocating franchise. They also have three third rounders, a fourth, a sixth, and a seventh to round out the event. With all those assets in tow, the time has arrived to scout some potential eligible draftees that they might be eyeing during the three day extravaganza in their latest hometown.

Detroit Lions Week 17 Recap- The End Describes The Season

Tom Greene  | December 30th, 2019

If you’re a Lions fan (or, at least, have read my recaps throughout the season), you know this story all too well. Having another lead during the game, only to see it slip away in the end. A 23-20 defeat puts a cap on a 3-12-1 season, one that started filled with optimism only to end with the third pick in the draft.

As for what the Lions should do with said third pick, we’ll inform you about that later. For now, here are the three things to look at from this game, one where both teams knew their fate.

Mike’s 2020 Mock Draft 1.0

Mike Fanelli | December 19th, 2019 

We are just a few days away from week 16 of the 2019 NFL season. That means there are only two weeks of regular season football left and the majority of teams have been eliminated from playoff contention. Those fan bases are already looking ahead to the offseason and most notably the 2020 NFL draft. With a loss in one of their final two games, the Bengals will lock up the top draft spot and will be on the clock.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hopefully, you are sharing this with family while enjoying some good quality time with them.

Damico’s Depository + Week 10 CFB Game Picks

Givanni Damico | November 2nd, 2019

I had an absolutely atrocious week last week. We’ll leave it at that since not many people saw my picks last week. I’m going to attempt to recover by giving you nine “locks” this week. Just a reminder, I am not a professional better and you shouldn’t bet your life savings on my picks. Anything can happen in football as we saw last week as most of my locks ended up not covering. If I can call myself out for doing well, I have to be able to admit when I was just wrong.

NCAA Preseason Top 10 Quarterback Rankings

Givanni Damico | September 2, 2019

1.) Justin Herbert

      School: Oregon

      Year: Senior

      Height/Weight: 6’6”, 234 LBs

Watching Justin Herbert made me feel like I was already scouting a professional. He has all of the intangibles that a good NFL quarterback is supposed to have, and his decision to return to Oregon just shows that he wants to improve even more to ensure that he’s ready for the NFL. Herbert has the body of a pocket passer, but don’t let that fool you. The man can still run when he needs to escape trouble. He’s the complete package of arm strength, accuracy, and the ability to run. This is my third year scouting, and I can safely say that Herbert is one of the most well-rounded prospects that I’ve scouted. Continue reading

2019 NFL Mock Draft: Heisman Night Special

Mike Fanelli and Givanni Damico | December 8th, 2018

Now that the college football regular season is over the biggest thing to debate is who will win the Heisman Trophy Award tonight? After that, it’s bowl season and the college football playoffs. But as all that unfolds, several college players have already declared for the 2019 NFL draft. While we still have over five months until the draft kicks off in Nashville, Tennessee, there is no bad time to check out a mock draft. As a reminder, both of us made 16 picks and we do hate your favorite team.

Way Too Early 2019 NFL Mock Draft

Mike Fanelli and Givanni Damico | November 9th, 2018

The 2018 NFL regular season is just barely halfway over, yet it is never too early for an NFL mock draft. Plenty will change between now and the draft in April and by no means can Gio or myself see into the future. Both of us made 16 selections each and please remember we hate your team.
