NFL 2015 Offseason Workout Program Schedule


NFL 2015 Offseason Workout Program Schedule

The NFL 2015 offseason continues after completing another excellent NFL Draft class. Teams are completing their OTAs over the next two weeks before starting veteran June mini camps that incorporate new veteran free agents and draft choices into the existing veteran rosters.

Most mini camps will begin early to mid June that will be the final preparation of new rosters prior for their August training camp preseason start.

Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, teams were allowed to begin Phase 1 of offseason workouts in late April, the activities are limited to strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation over two weeks. Phase 2 is three weeks long and began for most teams in early May. In this phase, players can participate in positional drills, but no live contact or team offense vs. team defense drills are allowed. Now teams prepare to head into Phase 3, or OTAs, which is a four-week-long period during which teams can conduct 10 days of organized team activity, including 7-on-7, 9-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills.

NFL Draft 2015 Wrapup – La’el Collins Story Continues


NFL Draft 2015 Wrapup – La’el Collins Story Continues

The NFL Draft 2015 is in the books with many surprises and disappointments over the three day event. Chicago hosted the NFL Draft for the first time in over 50 years and put on a huge extravaganza that included coverage from all 32 team headquarters.

The class of underclassmen dominated the start of the 2015 NFL Draft with 7 of the top 10 picks and 20 of the 32 first-round picks from the late entrees. Florida St. headed the NFL Draft with redshirt sophomore QB Jameis Winston the first overall selection which started 11 total Seminoles selected over the seven rounds, the most of any school in the nation. Washington provided three #1 picks in DT Danny Shelton, CB Marcus Peters and LB Shaq Thompson. It was the first time since 2009 that one school provided three #1 picks, with Southern Cal accomplishing that unique feat. The Pac 12 also provided 9 overall first round selections this year, the most of any conference in the nation.

As usual, there were many of the 85 underclassmen that probably would have been wiser to stay in school and finish their eligibility and develop further as players. Some high profile prospects fell out of the first round and a few did not get called until the 3rd day of the NFL Draft or not at all over the seven rounds. The SEC had the most draft selections once again with 54 players followed by the ACC with 47, the Pac-12 39, the Big Ten 35 and the Big XII 26. The power five conferences provided over 75% of all players selected.

There were many exciting stories, though an equal number of tragic and shocking revelations. The story related to OL Ja’el Collins of LSU is one of the most bizarre articles in recent NFL Draft history. Collins was considered a mid-first round lock until an investigation related to the murder of an ex-girlfriend hit the news the week prior to the NFL Draft. Collins was eventually questioned by Baton Rouge police the Monday after the NFL Draft weekend. Though no indictment has been issued after the questioning, Collins was considered a person of interest at this point. The timing of the tragedy and inquiry shocked NFL brass and subsequently Collins was bypassed completely over the seven round event. He has been denied entry in the NFL Supplemental Draft 2015 or reentry into the NFL Draft 2016. He is basically a rookie free agent and allowed to sign with any NFL club interested in his services. Rookie free agent contracts are for three years which allows him to test veteran free agency after three seasons. Within days after the police inquiry, Collins spoke with a few clubs, namely the Bills and Dolphins. Clubs like the Giants and Saints are also highly interested in the versatile lineman who carries an early NFL starting grade. His signing should come over the next few weeks after several interviews and recruiting trips are completed. He projects as a rookie starting guard and the skill set to move to tackle in time.

1. La'el Collins #70 - LSU - 6-4, 305 - Sp. 5.10
Hindu Theory: Branden Albert - Rating 90

Reliable veteran 3 year starter for the Tigers at both left guard and left tackle. Agile versatile blocker displayed fine talent over his SEC career, starting 38 of his 45 games. Possesses the skill set to handle either position very well at the next level. Square blocky build makes him appear shorter though more than adequate. While not the ideal height for left tackle at just less than 6'5, he makes up for it with long arms and nimble feet. Has fine core strength and well-distributed natural power throughout his body. All around effective blocker at either position. Extremely quick off the snap. Other than the center, he consistently beats the rest of the line at the snap. Able to stay low, use good leverage and hip snap. Consistently drives his man off the line in the run game, creating huge lanes for the Tigers’ running backs. Also very quick off the ball when pass blocking. Sets up quickly and uses those long arms to prevent speed rushers from running the arc on him. Very agile and quick in his kick slide. Possesses fine hand strength and will usually lock on and control a defender. Intimidating player with a real mean streak. Very aggressive and will look to dominate and bury his opponent. Collins doesn't back down from anyone, and if he does get beat on a play, will come back with even more determination on the next one. Well coached in all aspects of line play and very technically sound as both a pass and run blocker. Mentally tough. Some scouts feel he's not athletic enough to remain at left tackle in the pros, but that's not a consensus. Change of direction ability is not ideal for left tackle at the next level. Though has enough of an overall plus skill set that he could remain there in the right setting. As a pro, he could line up at either tackle or guard with his first look probably inside. He has ideal size for the inside with fine overall strength especially in the lower unit to be a complete prospect. Shuffles easily to mirror outside rushers with the ability to wall off and keep them from the QB. Sometimes will lunge and get off balance when reacting to counter moves. Shows the balance and lateral agility to recover and win. He graded out fairly well vs the quality Senior Bowl edge rushers. Should be able to step in and start at left guard at least very early in his rookie training camp. At the NFL Combine, he checked in with a reach of 33 1/4”. He ran a 5.02 time with a 27” VJ and a 9’ BJ. He did 21 reps with 4.63 shuttle and 7.70 three cone agility drills. It was a good workout where he displayed the skill set for early starting duty. Probable rookie starter with Pro Bowl talent. Top 15-20 prospect with the versatility to excel at either guard or tackle.

Todd Gurley #3 - Georgia - 6-1, 225 - Sp. 4.50
Hindu Theory: Adrian Peterson - Rating 90

Huge powerful speedy tailback is one of the most gifted runners to come along over the past decade. His career was cut short in 2014 by a torn ACL, that along with a four game suspension limited him to just six games last fall. Over that time, he still gained a pretty amazing 911 yards at 7.4 a pop and scored 9 TDs. Possesses an NFL body with a well-developed muscular frame. He has the natural ability to drop his pads and square up when attacking the line and seamlessly bounces off would be tacklers. Shows natural balance as a runner with the power and determination to be difficult to slow down, very seldom taken down by the first tackler. Reads his initial blocks very well. Shows a feel for finding daylight. Powers through creases with authority and the speed to stick-and-go with an extreme burst out of his cuts. Shows the ability to juke and shift his weight very well, especially for a 225 lb. runner. Able to string multiple moves together, including wicked jump cuts that can leave tacklers flailing at air. Uses his fine speed and long strides to eat up yards in a hurry. Large, natural glue-like hands as a receiver out of the backfield and is a willing, alert blocker in pass protection. Very uncommon combination of speed and power with huge pro upside when healthy. Extremely strong lower body and maintains balance well after contact. Appears to effortlessly run through attempted arm tackles. His speed makes him a threat to score from anywhere on the field. Extremely tough to tackle from an angle. Presses line very well to set up cut-back opportunities. Able to decisively get downhill, showing fine knee bend and forward lean. Effectively slips through some very small holes and explode out the other side. Shows quick, tight footwork getting to the second level. Can sink his hips and explode through a tackler or side-step and hit the throttle, which causes safeties to hesitate when coming downhill. Able to turn speed into power between tackles or when turning the corner. Seldom looks to go out of bounds and works to finish every run. In 2014, an outstanding 61.9% of his rushing yards came after contact. Strong hands and carries ball securely close to his body. Just fumbled three times in 510 carries. He is highly developed as a receiver to be an immediate three down feature back combining excellent hands and explosive big play ability after the catch. As a blocker, he will face up with linebackers, but needs hand technique development to be a finished complete feature back.
The Numbers: As a senior, he started the first 6 games and rushed for 911 yards on 123 carries for a 7.4 average and 9 TDs. He added 12 receptions for 57 yards before the four game suspension and then the ACL injury terminated his season. For the 2013 season, he rushed for 989 yards on 165 attempts for 6 yard average and 10 TDs. He added 37 receptions for 441 yards and 6 TDs. As a freshman in 2012, he had his best season and rushed for 1385 yards on 222 carries for a 6.2 average and 17 TDs, starting 14 games. He added 16 receptions for 117 yards. Over his career, he rushed for 3285 yards on 510 attempts for a fine 6.4 average and 36 TDs plus totaled 65 receptions for 615 yards and 6 TDs. At the NFL Combine, he came in at 6’1” and 222 lbs. and did 17 reps, but did not run or participate in the leaping and agility drills or positional drills due to rehabbing ACL injury.
The Skinny: Physical downhill thumper with the talent to be an immediate feature back. As a blocker, he shows quick reactions and toughness to face up with defenders and use his strong frame and agility. He can be his own blocker and runs both inside and outside. His receiving skills have developed nicely with reps, though he must continue to improve in that role. He has the natural running skills to be a difference maker and is similar to Adrian Peterson or former feature back Jamil Lewis in size, running style and big play abilities. Excellent early round addition with the skill set to be an impact player and core weapon. Top kickoff returner. Top 25 prospect with talent to be the best back in years once healthy.
