<![CDATA[BLEEDING YOUR COLORS - PUNTING ON FIRST DOWN]]>Mon, 15 Feb 2016 18:09:08 -0500Weebly<![CDATA[2015 First Round Mock Draft]]>Thu, 30 Apr 2015 14:21:57 GMThttp://bleedingyourcolors.weebly.com/punting-on-first-down/2015-first-round-mock-draftBy Trevor Utley


                    The first day, and round, of the NFL Draft begins tonight at 8 PM.  Last year, I went a bit overboard with my mocking and it came out horribly wrong.  This year I am deciding to go with a more minimalist approach, with hopes that with less focus on style and more on substance I'll get it more right.  Let's face it though.  It's the NFL Draft, nobody has figured this thing out yet.  Let's get to the picks shall we?


1. TAMPA BAY- Jameis Winston, QB (Florida State): It seems to be a foregone conclusion at this point that the former Heisman winner is staying in Florida.  The NFL Draft usually doesn't swerve us at the top like the NBA one does.

2. TENNESSEE- Marcus Mariota, QB (Oregon): Whether it be to Tennessee or a team making a Godfather trade offer, Mariota is going number two.  It'd be idiotic to let a talent of his caliber slip down the draft board.

3. JACKSONVILLE- Leonard Williams, DE (USC): Jacksonville, do your fans a favor here and just take the best player this draft has to offer.  Don't get cute with a wide receiver or running back at three.  Take Williams and solidify your defensive line for a decade.

4. OAKLAND- Amari Cooper, WR (Alabama): The old Raiders regime would take the flashier of the receiver prospects in Kevin White or Devante Parker.  What they need is a dependable set of hands for Derek Carr to throw to in any situation on the field.  That description fits Cooper like a glove.

5. WASHINGTON- Dante Fowler Jr., LB (Florida): The Skins defense is an abomination.  They need help everywhere and Fowler is the best defensive player available at five.  If they go a different route, say Vic Beasley or Bud Dupree, it'll be understandable.  This pick just HAS to be on a defensive player.

6. NEW YORK JETS- Kevin White, WR (West Virginia): The Jets made several key acquisitions the past two seasons at wide receiver.  However, Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker are old dogs by NFL standards.  If they're ever going to have success with Geno Smith under center, they need a guy like White to help him.

7. CHICAGO- Danny Shelton, DT (Washington): The Bears are another team with many holes to fill.  I just think the draft is deeper on the O-Line than it is on the D-Line.  Shelton will help clog the middle in one of the worst defenses the NFL had to offer in 2014.

8. ATLANTA- Vic Beasley, LB (Clemson): The Falcons gave up more yards than any other team in 2014.  The offense needs some work but that can be addressed in later rounds.  Beasley is the most sensible option for the Falcons new coach, defensive minded Dan Quinn.

9. NEW YORK GIANTS- Brandon Scherff, G (Iowa): The Giants love their midwestern hoss linemen.  Scherff fits anywhere Tom Coughlin wants to put him on the line.  Until further notice, the protection of Eli Manning should be the Giants' top priority this offseason.

10. ST. LOUIS- Andrus Peat, OT (Stanford): It looked like the Rams were attempting to build a wall for fragile QB Sam Bradford over the past few drafts.  Bradford is gone now but St. Louis still needs to protect new QB Nick Foles.  Peat is the top tackle on the board to work opposite last year's first round pick Greg Robinson.

11. MINNESOTA- Devante Parker, WR (Louisville):  The Vikings got their quarterback last year in Teddy Bridgewater.  They need another young offensive weapon to pair with their new main man.  Todd Gurley is shooting up draft boards but I think Parker is the better pick for Minnesota here.

12. CLEVELAND- Shane Ray, DE (Missouri): Ray looks to be in danger of falling out of the first round with his recent marijuana arrest.  Last year though, Cleveland didn't hesitate in taking a top troubled talent in Johnny Manziel.  Ray is a potential Top 7 talent, Cleveland shouldn't let him drop past here.

13. NEW ORLEANS- Bud Dupree, LB (Kentucky): There are plenty of reasons that this pick makes sense for New Orleans.  I've settled on it because there isn't a more New Orleans-y name in this first round than Bud Dupree.

14. MIAMI- Trae Waynes, CB (Michigan State): If Miami is ever going to usurp the Patriots in the AFC East, they are going to need to slow Tom Brady down.  Waynes is the best corner available which can only help in that mission.

15. SAN FRANCISCO- Arik Armstead, DT (Oregon): The 49ers once vaunted defense has been seriously depleted this offseason through shock retirements and much needed departures.  Armstead will help plug a hole at either defensive tackle or end, whichever one is most pressing for new coach Jim Tomsula.

16. HOUSTON- Breshad Perriman, WR (Central Florida): Andre Johnson is now a Colt.  The Texans have DeAndre Hopkins to fill that void.  Perriman will be perfect to slot in as Hopkins's number two.  The former Golden Knight is shooting up the first round after his workouts.  He shouldn't fall past the middle of round one.

17. SAN DIEGO- La'El Collins, OT (LSU): Whether it be Philip Rivers, or Marcus Mariota, the Chargers need to protect their quarterback better.  I've seen a lot of mocks with a running back here but San Diego has shown they could hit late in the draft at that position.  Collins gives the Chargers a solid tackle to protect their QB's blind side.

18. KANSAS CITY- Marcus Peters, CB (Washington):  This pick was a tough one with three quality corners still available at pick 18.  I sided with Peters due to his big play capability.  He is a bit of a risk having been dismissed from the UW team last year, but the reward may be too great to pass up.

19. CLEVELAND- Nelson Agholor, WR (USC): Barrinrg that they don't use their picks to trade up to the second pick, Cleveland can take a chance and a safe pick in round one.  I have them going out on a limb with Shane Ray at 12 while Nelson Agholor addresses a need at 19.  The Browns' WR corps is wire thin so Agholor could make an immediate impact.

20. PHILADELPHIA- Dorial Green-Beckham, WR (Oklahoma): Chip Kelly is building an offensive monster in the City of Brotherly Love.  He let Jeremy Maclin go this spring and could use a player of Green-Beckham's caliber as a replacement.  There are character concerns but at pick 20 he's an absolute bargain.

21. CINCINNATI- Malcolm Brown, DT (Texas): The power of the Bengals' defense has always been up the middle.  They still have Geno Atkins but Domata Peko is getting up in age.  Brown provides them with an heir apparent to Peko to keep their strength strong for years to come.

22. PITTSBURGH- Byron Jones, CB (Connecticut):  It has been ages since the Steelers used a first round pick on a cornerback.  They need to get younger at this position though and a player like Jones fits perfectly.  His super athleticism was on full display at the combine (world record 12' 3" broad jump) and scouts took notice.

23. DETROIT- D.J. Humphries, OT (Florida): Even with Ndamakong Suh in Miami, Detroit cannot panic pick a defensive lineman here.  Matt Stafford needs a big body on his side of the ball for once.  Humphries is a versatile lineman who could slot in one day one at right tackle.

24. ARIZONA- Randy Gregory, LB (Nebraska): Concerns over his mental health paired with a failed drug test is the only reason a player of Gregory's talent is available this late in the first round.  The Cardinals struck gold on a risk/reward project in Tyrann Mathieu.  They could get a similar bounty in Gregory.

25. CAROLINA- Cedric Ogbuehi, OT (Texas A&M): Cam Newton likes to run.  He didn't have much choice last year though as his offensive line parted like the Red Sea on a consistent basis.  The tackles need the most help right now and Ogbuehi gives them an option on either side of the line.

26. BALTIMORE- Todd Gurley, RB (Georgia): There is a very good chance that Gurley is going to be long gone before this pick.  However, in this mock, the post-ACL tear Bulldog falls as the deposed Ray Rice's replacement in Baltimore.  The city needs some good news for a change.

27. DALLAS- Kevin Johnson, CB (Wake Forest): Dallas, primarily Jerry Jones, needs to suppress every instinct they have saying to take Melvin Gordon here.  Yes, DeMarco Murray is gone.  BUT, running backs can be had at all points of the draft.  Johnson fills a glaring hole in the Dallas D.

28. DENVER- Cameron Erving, C (Florida State): Peyton Manning wants one final run at a title.  He is going to need all the talent he can in front of him.  Cameron Erving can play every position on the line and kept the number one pick in this draft upright for two years.

29. INDIANAPOLIS- Ereck Flowers, G (Miami-FL): I feel like I've been saying quite often how this league's star QBs have been underprotected.  As a Colts fan, I can say the worst of it probably came from Indy.  They couldn't run the ball and Andrew Luck paid for it.  Flowers gives them solid blocking and versatility at two positions on a weak O-line.

30. GREEN BAY- Landon Collins, S (Alabama): The Pack went safety last year with Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.  Adding another Alabama safety in Collins gives them one of the best young secondaries in the NFC.  They could use a corner here but Collins allows Green Bay to move some of their other secondary around to fill holes.

31. NEW ORLEANS- Phillip Dorsett, WR (Miami-FL): I had the Saints address the defense with their first round pick.  I am giving Drew Brees another weapon with the pick they got from Seattle in the Jimmy Graham trade.  Dorsett is no Graham but he is a speedy wideout that will give opponents fits alongside last year's first rounder Brandin Cooks.

32. NEW ENGLAND- Melvin Gordon, RB (Wisconsin): Why not?  Either Bill Belichick will do what he does and trades out of the first round allowing a desperate team to come up and snag Gordon.  That or he takes a lottery talent with the last pick of the first round and the rich get richer.

                    You know the drill folks.  Our three pack of pickers pecked pickled peppers...wait no, they picked tonight's Thursday Night Football game between AFC East foes Miami and Buffalo.  Nobody can seem to get a read on the Bills with Kyle Orton at QB.  It is up one week then down the next.  The same can be said about Fins' signal caller Ryan Tannehill.  Can any of our three selectors get a read?  Can I shake off the rust?  Is this the week that Andrew finally breaks through past the .500 plateau?  Can El Stallion karate kick a cheetah?  We spin the pick wheel one space as always and that means I am temporarily on over/under duty, Andrew is on Paul Abdul detail, and El Stallion is going against the spread.  On to the picks!

<![CDATA[Windy City Blues]]>Thu, 13 Nov 2014 19:25:49 GMThttp://bleedingyourcolors.weebly.com/punting-on-first-down/windy-city-bluesBy Colin Hecht



                    It’s been almost a week since the Chicago Bears put America on notice that they are in fact the worst football team in the NFL!  Now before all you Bears fans dismiss this claim, I know the Oakland Raiders are 0-9.  I know both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars are doing their part to only further their point that they shouldn't be considered “professional” teams.  Despite this, the Chicago Bears are in my opinion the worst team in in the National Football League right now. 

                    I want to throw some numbers out there: 94, 68, 91. No, that’s not my high school locker combination, those are the total points given up to opponents by the Raiders, Bucs, and Jags respectively over the last three weeks. The Bears, however, have giving up a whopping 106 points…in the last two games! They also had a bye in between! That means they had a week off to rid themselves of the stench of the beat down that Tom Brady handed to them to prepare and focus on their arch-rival Green Bay Packers and still managed to give up 42 points to Aaron Rodgers and company in the first half. Now anyone who knows football will tell you that it’s the defense, and while I would agree the Bears defense “couldn't catch cooties at Millhouse’s party,” to quote Homer Simpson, I wouldn't put all of the blame solely on them. The defense doesn't turn the ball over a million times and provide great field position.  That offense put forth by "genius" Marc Trestman needs an overhaul too.

                     Jay Cutler has to go! The talent around him that this guy has been blessed with would make even the great Tom Brady green with envy and yet Cutler not only takes it for granted by finds every way to make Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffrey, Matt Forte, and Martellus Bennett to look mediocre.  It’s insane!  And don’t tell me the majority of the blame doesn't fall on #6.  Josh McCown took this exact same offense within playoff contention up until the very end when Cutler came back to deliver a stinker du jour in another loss to the Packers. 

                  Maybe it’s the coach, but to me, pointing fingers at the coach in any sport is taking the easy way out and provides more excuses for the players you are paying top dollar for to play a game we all played in the backyard growing up. It’s Jay, and hey Brandon Marshall, stop protecting Cutler and pulling a T.O. “that’s my quarterback” routine.  You want to win just as much maybe more than any other Bears player in that locker room.  No more excuses. Next season will be the 30th anniversary of the “Super Bowl Shuffle” Chicago Bears, and I can only imagine what is going through the minds of William Perry or Jim McMahon or even Mike Ditka's batty ass as they watch the disgrace these 2014 Bears are putting on. Hopefully there will be Cutler-less days ahead, I mean even Rex Grossman took the Bears to the Super Bowl.

                    If you can hear the old Hank Williams "Are You Ready for Some Football?" in the distance, see a doctor you have a serious issue going on in your brain.  It may be your demented cerebellum's way of telling you it is time for Bleeding Your Colors' Monday Night Football picks.  It was a bountiful Sunday for Josh straight up and El Stallion in over/underville.  Andrew once again struggled to find form in the spreadiverse as he chases .500 like he's got a machete and he's at Camp Crystal Lake.  Tonight's game features the Panthers and the Eagles, two teams that are still trying to find some consistency from the quarterback position.  Cam Newton is a complete toss-up from week to week for Carolina.  Can Mark Sanchez make the seamless transition to starter in place of the injured Nick Foles like he did in relief a week ago?  We'll find out how those factors and more sway our pickers this evening.  On to the picks!!

                    It is nearly kickoff for the 1:00 games in the NFL which means it is time for Bleeding Your Colors' weekly NFL picks!  We have had a bit of a change in the hierarchy here in the NFL Pick Center as a once deposed king retook the throne.  El Stallion, who led the way after our first week, finally returned to the top after he successfully chose the under on Thursday while Cincinnati left former leader Josh high and dry.  The Portuguese Man'o'War though has a chance to reclaim his crown today as he is on Paula Abdul duty while El Stallion has to plod through the unpredictable swamps of over/under.  All the while Andrew goes against the spread to once again get himself above .500 for the first time.  Enjoy the games, unless your team is one of the 50 on bye, an onto the picks!

                    It was another good week for the three NFL picking amigos here at Bleeding Your Colors.  El Stallion made the most of his Paula Abdul week (aka the Straight Up week) and finally caught current leader Josh in the win percentage department.  Andrew put in a valiant shift with the hardest task, over/under, and is just three wins away from evening his record on the season.  The two Andrews are trying to buck a Thursday night trend this week.  While Josh has yet to lose on Thursday evening, his compatriots haven't won.  Let's see if the AFC North can be their tonic tonight.  As always, we give the wheel one rotation to the right this week leaving the picking responsibilities of our three prognosticators as follows: Josh has the games straight up, Andrew has them against the spread, and El Stallion has the over/under duty for Week 10.  On to the picks for Thursday Night Football!

                    See what happens when I stay out of the pick game.  We get above .500 records!  Our three NFL selectors each broke that threshold in each of their disciplines in what was a very volatile Sunday of football.  They try to keep up the good work tonight on Monday Night Football when my beloved Colts take on the New York Football Giants.  Just like Sunday, Josh will be going against the spread, Andrew will be handling the over/under, and El Stallion will be picking the game straight up.  Give these fine gentlemen a follow on Twitter and you may get yourself an education!  Enjoy the game everybody and on to the picks!

                    Thank God I didn't have to pick this week!  I didn't do so bad, compared to past work, but having the three picker band back together is a good feeling.  Once again Josh kept his streak of being the only person to hit on Thursday Night Football alive as the New Orleans cruised past Carolina.  Andrew Squared have some work to do this Sunday after striking out on Panthers/Saints.  If you missed the Thursday picks, the roles for this week are Josh against the spread, Andrew doing over/unders, and El Stallion picking the games straight up.  Picks ahoy!

                    It is Thursday Night Football time!  I shouldn't be this excited as to be honest I probably won't watch a single second of this game.  Our pickers will certainly do so though as the line cycle falls back to its initial setting from Week 6.  Josh will be picking the game against the spread, Andrew will be working with the over/under, and El Stallion will be picking the game straight up.  Who will be on the right side of the ritual Thursday night walloping, Carolina or New Orleans?  Here are our picks!

                    For the first time this season, all three BYC NFL pickers went over .500.  Josh was the best of the bunch going a ridiculous 9-4 with over/unders.  Me and Andrew had parallel records, straight up and against the spread respectively, at 7-6.  Like yesterday, Josh will be covering the over/under for tonight's game between the Cowboys and Redskins.  Andrew will be picking the games straight up and I will be picking once again against the spread.  To the picks!
