Draft Insiders’ Yearbook NFL Draft 2014

Wide Receiver Positional Overview: This year's group of receivers is an incredible class that may rank with the best prospects in over a decade. The addition of 15 underclassmen significantly improved a below average senior class to make this the strongest position in this draft.

Photo - WR Odell Beckham - Giants

There will probably be at least 35+ receivers over the three-day event. Rookie receivers have been highly sought after with NFL offenses predominantly focusing on the passing game. This is the strongest receiving class since the famous 1996 group that featured Keyshawn Johnson, Marvin Harrison, Terrell Owens, Eric Moulds, Terry Glenn, Muhsin Muhammad, Amani Toomer, Bobby Engram and Eddie Kennison among others.

Odell Beckham #3 - 5-11, 195 - LSU - Sp. 4.40
Hindu Theory Percy Harvin

Electrifying junior receiver/ returner completed a fine career for LSU, earning SEC honors several time over his career. Odell has been a consistently productive big play performer whether as a receiver, runner or return specialist. He combines explosive quickness and speed that allows him to make plays after the catch or returning kicks. He has shown consistent big play ability in those roles to make defenders miss or run away from them. Over his career, he has been a featured big play weapon for the pro style Tiger passing game that has featured several NFL receivers. He is an excellent all-purpose performer who has natural hands and running skills to fill a few key roles as a pro. He was a consistent playmaker in all roles and could earn the #3 job as a slot receiver as a rookie, in addition to both return duties. He has incredible natural hands who runs precise routes and is able to utilize his great suddenness to create space. He is both very quick and fast with the short area suddenness to create running room and hit an opening. He has top speed with the initial quickness to get into his routes nicely and the ability to make fast cuts at the break point and create consistent separation. He displays top AA and has a fine understanding of the passing game with the ability to adjust his routes and make the tough catch. He has the speed to get deep or take the short screen pass and make a big play using his natural running skills. Despite his marginal size, he displays the toughness and body control to make the difficult catch, take the big hit and hold on to the ball. He releases from the line quickly and fights thru the jam to get into his routes. After the catch, his top running ability makes things happen with his rare elusiveness to make defenders miss and speed to run away from tacklers. He is similar to Percy Harvin and Randall Cobb in speed, quickness, style and AA with big play talent to be a game to game difference maker.
The Numbers: As a junior, he started 13 games and had 59 catches for 1152 yards for a 19.5 average and 8 TDs. He won the 2013 Hornung Award as college football’s most versatile player for both his receiving and outstanding return skills. He led the SEC and ranking #2 in the nation in all-purpose yards with a 178.1 average. As a sophomore, he started 12 of 13 games and had 43 catches for 713 yards and 2 TDs. Over his career, he set the LSU record and finished No. 2 in SEC single-season history with 2,315 all-purpose yards as a junior in ’13. He started 34 of 39 games for three seasons and totaled 143 catches for 2340 yards and 12 TDs. Over his career, he had 2 punt returns for TDs in 2012 and had a career 9 yard average along with a 25 yard career average for kickoff returns. Over the 2013 season, he had 32 kickoff returns for 845 yards and a 26.4 average. At the NFL Combine, he ran 4.43 time with a 1.50 ten yard split. He did 7 reps. He had a 38.5” VL and a 10’2” BJ with a 3.94 short shuttle and 6.69 three cone in an excellent display of athleticism. He performed very well in the receiving drills.
The Skinny: Very explosive athlete with the ability to become an impact player as both a receiver and returner. He is a top athlete with the talent to provide early impact and game changing talent. He can be a slot receiver with the skill set to become a major matchup problem. His top open field running skills gives his club a dangerous weapon in a number of roles. Highly-developed athlete with the developed skills to be a much better pro than collegian. Pro Bowl returner to give an offense consistently good field position. Developed skill set to be a very good pro and he probably does not fall beyond the top selections. Impact weapon with big play ability in a few roles.

Semifinalists Chosen For 2014 Outland Trophy

Semifinalists Chosen For 2014 Outland Trophy
FWAA unveils Semifinalists for Top Interior Lineman

OMAHA (FWAA) – Six semifinalists for the 2014 Outland Trophy – five offensive linemen and one defensive tackle – were announced on Thursday night during a reception hosted by the Greater Omaha Sports Committee.
The Football Writers Association of America (FWAA), in a call of its 2014 All-America Committee, has determined the following six players as semifinalists for the award, in alphabetical order: Malcom Brown, Texas defensive tackle; Reese Dismukes, Auburn center; Spencer Drango, Baylor offensive tackle; Jake Fisher, Oregon offensive tackle; Tré Jackson, Florida State offensive guard; and Brandon Scherff, Iowa offensive tackle.

The field for the Outland Trophy, which is awarded to the best interior lineman in college football on offense or defense, will be reduced to three players early next week. Those finalists will be announced the evening of Nov. 25 on ESPNU from 6-6:30 pm ET during the College Football Awards Nomination Special. The winner of the 69th Outland Trophy will be revealed on Dec. 11 from 7-9 p.m. ET on ESPN on The Home Depot College Football Awards, live from the Atlantic Dance Hall on the Disney Boardwalk in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

The Outland Trophy Candidates

Malcom Brown, DT, Texas (6-2, 320, Jr., Brenham, Texas): Brown leads the Longhorns with 6.5 sacks, a feat that hasn't been accomplished by a defensive tackle in a dozen years in Austin. He paces the squad with 14 tackles for loss and six quarterback pressures and has forced two fumbles and recovered one. In his most recent game, he had two sacks and forced a fumble in Texas' 28-7 victory at Oklahoma State that made the Longhorns (6-5) bowl-eligible. "Malcom is having an unbelievable season, an All-American year," Texas coach Charlie Strong said. "He's so fun to watch because he plays with great energy and is just a dominating player."

Reese Dismukes, C, Auburn (6-3, 295, Sr., Spanish Fort, Ala.): Dismukes has been the mainstay of the offensive line as a captain the last two seasons. He has started in 47 games over four seasons at Auburn. A much-heralded recruit out of high school, Dismukes is considered the glue of the offensive line that grinds out yards in a triple-option attack. Auburn's rushing offense ranks No. 8 in the country (272.8 yards per game), No. 18 in total offense (485.4) and 26th in scoring (35.5).

Spencer Drango, OT, Baylor (6-6, 310, Jr., Cedar Park, Texas): An imposing lineman for the explosive Baylor Bears, who lead the country in scoring offense (50.1 points per game) and total offense (585.1 yards per game) and third in passing offense (354.2 yards per game). Drango leads all Bears with 31 career starts. The Bears are 27th in pass protection in the country, allowing just 13 sacks as Drango fortifies at his left tackle spot.

Jake Fisher, OT, Oregon (6-6, 300, Sr., Traverse City, Mich.): When Fisher missed two games earlier in the season with a leg injury, Heisman Trophy candidate quarterback Marcus Mariota was sacked 12 times and the Ducks lost to Arizona. He's a vital cog on the offensive line, where he has had to move to left tackle because of injuries to other players. Oregon ranks fifth in the FBS in total offense, producing 531.2 yards a game and a whopping 7.28 yards per play. He's a converted tight end who also has played guard.

Tré Jackson, OG, Florida State (6-4, 330, Sr., Jesup, Ga.): Florida State says Jackson "has the strength and agility to be a dominant force in both run-blocking and pass-blocking and has paved the way for (the) offense." He has started 22 straight games and 38 in his career. This season, he is a three-time ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week following games against N.C. State, Syracuse and Notre Dame. He has recorded the top grade among Florida State offensive linemen in eight of 10 games this season. The Seminoles rank 16th in scoring offense (37.1 points per game) and 11th in passing offense (318.1 yards per game).

Brandon Scherff, OT, Iowa (6-5, 320, Sr., Denison, Iowa): Scherff has started 23 straight games at left tackle for the 7-3 Hawkeyes. In all, he has played in 41 games and started 33 of them. He has been a strong leader in his four seasons at Iowa. "Brandon came back for his senior year with a mission to prove, and I think he has done that," said Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz. "From a leadership standpoint, having a guy play at an NFL level on a college playing field has been important to our football team. The toughness he brings, the attention to detail, the physical nature of his play, he's pretty special."

The Outland Trophy, which has been awarded annually by the FWAA since 1946, is named after the late John Outland, an All-America lineman at the University of Pennsylvania in the late 1900s. The Outland Trophy is the third-oldest award in major college football behind the Heisman Trophy and Maxwell Award.
For the 18th consecutive year, the presentation banquet of the Outland Trophy will occur in Omaha. The official 2014 Outland Trophy presentation to the winner will be on Jan. 15, 2015 at a banquet sponsored by the Greater Omaha Sports Committee. At the same banquet, Notre Dame lineman Ross Browner will receive an Outland Trophy. He was the 1976 winner of the award – before trophies were handed out by the FWAA.

The Outland Trophy is a member of the National College Football Awards Association (NCFAA). The NCFAA encompasses the most prestigious awards in college football. The 21 awards boast 699 years of tradition-selection excellence. Visit ncfaa.org to learn more about our story.

The Football Writers Association of America, a non-profit organization founded in 1941, consists of more than 1,400 men and women who cover college football. The membership includes journalists, broadcasters and publicists, as well as key executives in all the areas that involve the game. The FWAA works to govern areas that include gameday operations, major awards and its annual All-America team.
