Corrigan’s Gambling Corner: Week Eight

Daniel Corrigan | December 2nd, 2019

I hope that everyone had a chance to relax before the Monday night game tonight. Four straight days of football and eating really wears you down. Add on gambling and you are just a shell of yourself. Maybe if you took my picks from last week and went 3-1 heading into cyber Monday you would feel a bit better. Let’s Get Rich.

2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report: CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma

Givanni Damico | November 23rd, 2019 

CeeDee Lamb, WR, Oklahoma #2 

Height: 6’3”

Weight: 191 LBs

Year: Junior

CeeDee Lamb is at the top of my wide receiver board. He’s a flashy player who makes big plays on the ball. Lamb averages 22.3 yards per catch which show his incredible yards after catch (YAC) ability. Lamb is an elite athlete with an incredible motor and great agility.

I grade on a 100-point scale being distributed ten ways with ten different criteria.

For wide receivers, these criteria include:

Frame, Speed, Strength/Physicality, Release, Hips/Footwork, Catching, Playmaking/YAC, Contested Balls, Route Running, Athleticism

Games of Lamb’s that I’ve watched:

  1. Texas Tech, at West Virginia (2018), at Texas (2019), vs. Houston (2019), vs. Alabama (2018)

 

Frame

9.5/10 Lamb has great size for a wide receiver that plays on the outside. I’d like to see him add a little bit more weight so he can better box out his opponents, but he’s only going to get stronger. He’s going to be hard for any cornerback in football to stop.

Speed

8.5/10 Although his speed is not elite, Lamb’s agility and athleticism makes up for it. He accelerates quickly in the open field which allows for extra YAC.

Strength/Physicality

9/10 Lamb is extremely physical as a runner. He fights for every last yard. He is also able to box out pretty well. As I said earlier, there is room for improvement here, but he’s one of the best in the class at creating space to make plays.

Release

9.5/10 Despite his lack of top-end speed, Lamb’s break off of the line of scrimmage and incredibly fluid footwork allow him to create separation quickly which leads to big plays and yards after the catch.

Hips/Footwork

10/10 No one is more polished at body control in the air and fluid footwork than Lamb (in this class). He is a top of the line talent who is great at concentrating on the ball and adjusting his body to make difficult plays seem easy.

Catching

9.5/10 There is no doubt that Lamb is a natural pass-catcher. If you throw it his way, he seems to catch it nearly every time. 

Playmaking/YAC

10/10 Only Jerry Jeudy rivals Lamb’s ability to make big plays happen. As I said earlier, Lamb is electrifying after the catch which is a major reason why he averages 22 yards per catch. He is elusive and hard to bring down. 

Contested Balls

8.5/10 Some of the plays that I’ve seen Lamb make in tight coverage are incredible. I’d like to see him develop a bit more consistency in this department, but you can’t ask for much more from a young talent.

Route Running

9.5/10 Lamb has an advanced route tree, having played in an “air raid” style offense. His ability to learn routes and consistently catch the football will put him on every team’s “must-have” list going into the 2020 draft.

Athleticism

9.5/10 Despite his lack of elite speed, Lamb is still likely to run somewhere in the 4.5-4.6 range at the 40-yard dash. He is extremely elusive and agile. Overall, he is incredibly gifted with natural talent.

Overall

93.5/100 There is a reason why CeeDee Lamb is number one on my wide receiver board. He’s incredibly well-rounded and has an insane catch radius. He makes difficult plays look easy, especially when controlling his body in the air. He is a polished player, understanding advanced route trees and having incredible footwork and fluidity. His ability to make plays with the ball in his hand is unparalleled.


Round Grade: Early First Round

Projected Draft Position: Early-Mid First Round

Pro Comparison: DeAndre Hopkins

Scenario For Every Top 10 Team To Sneak Into The CFP

Justin Trease | November 15th, 2019 

As every college football fan understands. We aren’t all lucky enough to be a fan of a school like Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State and other powerhouse programs that are always in the mix for the College Football Playoffs year in and year out. With less than a month of regular season games remaining. We have a handful of top 10 programs that have never even sniffed the CFP. Even with them in the top 10, they still are on the outside looking in. I am here to give each of these programs a script of how they can sneak their way into the top 4 when the final rankings are released. Continue reading
