2018 NFL DRAFT 65 SPECIAL SLEEPERS
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

All of These Special Sleepers were Evaluated with a “Little-Different” Process than All of The Top NFL Players, because some of These Special Sleepers would Rate Higher than These Top Rated NFL Players.

We will Start with a Defensive Freak Named Kendall Donnerson of SE Missouri State who Competed with Saquan Barkley who Broke The MEARS RATING RECORD at The 2018 Scouting Combine.

At Southeast Missouri State, The Incredible Athletic Trio of EDGE Rusher Kendall Donnerson, CB Mike Ford, and OLB Chad Meredith were not invited to The Scouting Combine, but they were Unbelievably Athletic at some Various Amazing Pro Days at some Off-Campus Pro DaysAll three Players did Off-Campus Pro Days, with Donnerson and Ford at Missouri Western Pro Day and Meredith at Louisville Pro Day.

Donnerson decided to “Stand-On”  his Missouri Western Pro Day Incredible Measurables while Ford decided to go “Full-Speed”  again at SEMO. Ford (5-11, 190) Recorded a 4.4 Forty; a 4.15 Pro Shuttle; a 40-Inch Vertical Jump; and an Incredible 132-Inch Standing Broad Jump.

Super EDGE Rusher Donnerson (6-3, 249) Ran a 4.43 Forty; did a 40-Inch Vertical Jump; a 4.37 Pro Shuttle; did a 131-Inch Standing Broad Jump; and 20 Reps on The Bench Press. His Forty, Vertical Jump, Pro Shuttle, and Standing Broad Jump are All Numbers that would have led all of The EDGE Rushers at The 2018 NFL Scouting Combine; which has The Attention of Most All of The NFL Scouts.

Donnerson is Probably a “Little-Raw” but with Incredible Athletic Talent to Help any NFL Football Team Better with his First Game. Projected as a Free Agent which is Laughable.

Brigham Young Super-Star Wide Receiver Jonah Trinnaman (#3 In Photo) is hoping that he will get the The Call from One of The NFL Teams on NFL Draft Day, on April 26-28 and although he did not get an Invite to NFL The Scouting Combine, he “Put-Up” some “Mind-Boggling” Measurables at The BYU Pro Day“I think The Bears had me at a 4.25 in the Forty,” Trinnaman said in a Pro Day Interview. Trinnaman also said that The Bears took him out to Dinner after his Pro Day.

If Trinnaman had been Invited to The NFL Scouting Combine and ran his Official 4.26 Forty, he would have been the Fastest Player at The Combine. Top 50 Cornerback Denzel Ward of Ohio State; Donte Jackson of LSU; and Parry Nickerson of Tulane ran a 4.32 Forty and were the Fastest Players at The Combine.

Trinnaman began his College Career at Snow Junior College in Utah and in 2015, he was Selected to The NJCAA First-Team All-America Special Teams as an Unbelievable Kick Returner as he Returned Three Kickoffs for a Touchdown, including a 99-Yard Return for Touchdown.

Seven Other Sensational Super Speedy Sleeper Ball-Catchers!

There were an Incredible Seven Other Unbelievable and Amazing Wide Receivers who were not Invited to The 2018 Scouting Combine, but they Recorded some “Mind-Boggling” and Incredible Measurables and are Leaders on our SUPER SPECIAL SLEEPERS TEAM. Those Seven Other Wide Receivers that were Fabulous on Their Pro-Day included Jeff Badet of Oklahoma; Daurice Fountain of Northern Iowa; Justin Watson of Penn; Derrick Willies of Texas Tech; Cameron Batson of Texas Tech; Sneed Blacknall of Penn State; and then; Deontez Alexander of Franklin.

Then on Ball State Pro Day, a Young Man from Franklin College, by the Name of Deontez Alexander, Showed-Up for their Pro Day, to the Total-Delight of all of The NFL Scouts and Ball State Players and Coaches. Franklin College is a Division III School located in Franklin, Indiana. At The Ball State Pro Day, Alexander (6-2, 196) Shocked The NFL Scouts with some Incredible Speed and Jumping Measurables, including a 4.35 Forty and a 4.1 Shuttle Speed Measurables; plus a 37.5-Inch Vertical Jump and a 130-Inch Standing Broad Jump his Athletic and Jumping Measurables.

In his Two Seasons with the Grizzlies, Alexander (#3) was Pretty Incredible as he Recorded 114 Catches for 2,133-Yards with 33 Touchdowns and an Outstanding 18.7-Yards Per Catch Average. In 2017, Alexander Recorded 50 Catches for 1,133-Yards and 18 Touchdowns and an Incredible 22.6-Yards Per Catch Average.

Before The Pro Day Combine, Alexander was Probably going to be a Un-Draftable Free Agent, but after The Pro Day Combine, he was able to Highly Impress several NFL Teams and NFL Scouts, including The Green Bay Packers, The San Francisco 49ers, The Denver Broncos, The Cleveland Browns, The Indianapolis Colts, The Jacksonville Jaguars, The Baltimore Ravens, The Detroit Lions, and The Oakland Raiders.

Super-Star Inside Linebacker Matthew Thomas (#13) is an Athletic Freak and it’s impossible for me to believe that he would be Projected To Be Drafted in the Sixth or Seventh Round of  The NFL Draft. Thomas ran a 4.44 at The Florida State Pro Day after he had run a 4.29 Pro Shuttle at The Scouting Combine and he now has all of The NFL Scouts Buzzing.

Image result for Leon Jacobs Photos

Leon Jacobs (#32) was Outstanding on his Highlight Film and he was Invited to The Scouting Combine where he was One of The Most Impressive Linebackers. His 4.48 in The Forty Ranked Second in Linebackers behind Shaquen Griffin and his Famous 4.38 and his 26 Reps on the Bench Press Tied for Third Among all Edge-Rushers. It’s Difficult to Believe that Leon Jacobs would be Projected in Round #6.

2018 NFL DRAFT TOP 50; 65 SPECIAL SLEEPERS; AND 70 SUPER RECEIVERS! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

2018 NFL DRAFT TOP 50; 65 SPECIAL SLEEPERS; AND 70 SUPER RECEIVERS!

Related image

SUPER SCOUT NOTE: Three Weeks ago, when I started this NFL Draft Evaluation Story on all of the Incredible Wide Receivers that were Preparing for The NFL Draft, I was going to Highlight either 20 or 25 Players. Then I decided to Give a Sneak Preview of The Super 16 of the Top Players. After Evaluating so many Players and Finding so many Great Players; I NOW have my Super 75 Wide Receivers, Top 50 NFL Players, and My Super 60 Sleepers for The 2018 NFL Draft. I Sincerely hope you Enjoy it and can use it on Draft Day. Good Luck on Draft Day!

There were some Really Impressive Measurables at The 2018 NFL Scouting Combine, but I was Very Disappointed in many of The Performances of Most of The Top Wide Receivers at The Scouting Combine. Most All of The Wide Receivers in THE BLUE CHIP MEARS RATINGS were Some of The Best Wide Receivers in The Country on The Football Field in 2017 and They are All are Rated as such, by The NFL Scouts and NFL Analysis Scouts.

Those Super-Star Wide Receivers Included Top Draft Choices like Calvin Ridley, D. J. CharkDaeSean Hamilton, Christian Kirk, Anthony Miller, Keke Coutee, Dante Pettis, D.J. Moore, Cedric WilsonDarren Carrington, Dylan Cantrell, and James Washington. Each one of these Receivers were Selected to Several of my Weekly MVP Awards During The 2017 Football Season. All of These Stars did Extremely Well in The Scouting Combine Drills, but they did not do Extremely Well in One or Two of The Speed and Strength Measurables.

Some of them, however, did improve some of their Speed Measurables in Their Pro-Day, including Miller, CantrellKirk and Washington.

Since I was Really Disappointed with Most of these Wide Receiver Ratings, I Decided To-Tweak the Wide Receivers Bench Press Standard to a 5  from a 10, making it as the same as The Cornerback Standard which most of them play on Defense. I also Decided to Lower The Linebacker Bench Press Standard from a 15 to a 10.

With these Two Tweaks, most all of the Wide Receivers and Linebackers were given Plus Points and were able to “Move-Up” into another MEARS RATING Group. 

If I was being Totally Honest, I would have to say that This 2018 NFL Crop of Wide Receivers was Tremendously Outstanding, but a Little Under-Whelming, in their Pre-Combine Preparation, including Ridley, Sutton, Kirk, Hamilton, Coutee, and Washington. Some were injured at The Scouting Combine, including Pettis, Miller, and Washington. All of these Guys had Tremendous Senior Seasons and were Highly Rated by The NFL Scouts, but most of them were “Under-Achievers” or Injured at The Scouting Combine.

All of these Wide Receivers were Outstanding during their Season, but Chalk, Miller, and Moore were Incredible on their Highlight Film and all Three Players were able To-Made THE SUPER GOLD CHIP MEARS RATING. Chalk and Moore were Measurable Freaks at The Scouting Combine; and although Miller was Injured at The Scouting Combine; Miller was Incredible at Their Memphis Pro-Day.

Miller joined “The Incredible D.J. Team” of  D.J. Chark of LSU and D.J. Moore of Maryland. Chark Recorded a 2,833 SUPER GOLD CHIP MEARS RATING and just Behind him was Moore with a 2,830 SUPER GOLD CHIP RATING, and Miller of Memphis with a 2,822 SUPER GOLD CHIP MEARS RATING. 

I still Really like Ridley, Kirk, Sutton, Coutee, Pettis, and Washington, but all of them had at least one or two “Weak Measurables” and although they all Received Outstanding Coaching Points, they could not get to the 2,800 SUPER GOLD MEARS RATING POINTS. They all, however, have All the Potential to be a #1 or #2 NFL Draft Choice.

Eight Other Sensational Super Speedy Sleeper Ball-Catchers!

There were Eight Other Unbelievable and Amazing Wide Receivers who were not Invited to The 2018 Scouting Combine, but they Recorded some “Mind-Boggling” and Incredible Measurables and are Leaders on our SUPER SPECIAL SLEEPERS . Those Seven Wide Receivers that were Fabulous on Their Pro-Day included Jonah Trinnaman of Brigham YoungJeff Badet of Oklahoma; Daurice Fountain of Northern Iowa; Justin Watson of Penn; Derrick Willies of Texas Tech; Cameron Batson of Texas Tech; Sneed Blacknall of Penn State; and then; Deontez Alexander of Franklin.

Then on Ball State Pro Day, a Young Man from Franklin College, by the Name of Deontez Alexander, Showed-Up for their Pro Day, to the Total-Delight of all of The NFL Scouts and Ball State Players and Coaches. Franklin College is a Division III School located in Franklin, Indiana. At The Ball State Pro Day, Alexander (6-2, 196) Shocked The NFL Scouts with some Incredible Speed and Jumping Measurables, including a 4.35 Forty and a 4.1 Shuttle Speed Measurables; plus a 37.5-Inch Vertical Jump and a 130-Inch Standing Broad Jump his Athletic and Jumping Measurables.

In his Two Seasons with the Grizzlies, Alexander (#3) was Pretty Incredible as he Recorded 114 Catches for 2,133-Yards with 33 Touchdowns and an Outstanding 18.7-Yards Per Catch Average. In 2017, Alexander Recorded 50 Catches for 1,133-Yards and 18 Touchdowns and an Incredible 22.6-Yards Per Catch Average.

Before The Pro Day Combine, Alexander was Probably going to be a Un-Draftable Free Agent, but after The Pro Day Combine, he was able to Highly Impress several NFL Teams and NFL Scouts, including The Green Bay Packers, The San Francisco 49ers, The Denver Broncos, The Cleveland Browns, The Indianapolis Colts, The Jacksonville Jaguars, The Baltimore Ravens, The Detroit Lions, and The Oakland Raiders.

Two Original Super-Stars, Calvin Ridley of Alabama and Christian Kirk of Texas A&M were able “To-Move-Up” from their SUPER BLUE CHIP RATING to a GOLD CHIP RATING. Ridley moved to a 2,773 GOLD CHIP RATING; while Kirk Moved-Up to a 2,753 GOLD CHIP RATING.

Chark First Recorded a 2,753 GOLD CHIP MEARS RATING, but Moved-Up to a 2,833 SUPER GOLD CHIP MEARS RATING, after The Bench Press Tweak; while D.J. Moore Moved-Up from a 2,650 SUPER BLUE CHIP MEARS RATING to a 2,830 SUPER GOLD CHIP MEARS RATING.

Some of these Measurables by Chark, Moore, Badet, Fountain, and Watson were So Impressive to The NFL Teams and Scouts, that they are now Really Being  “Buzzed-About” in Preparation for The 2018 Draft.

Those Five Super-Stars were able To-Put Together Some Pretty impressive Measurables together and Finished with a Really Outstanding SUPER GOLD CHIP or GOLD CHIP MEARS RATING.

Also, Remember that in This Same 2018 NFL Draft Class; Running Back Saquon Barkley of Penn State Recorded an Incredible 2,906 SUPER GOLD CHIP MEARS RATING and Cornerback Denzel Ward of Ohio State Recorded another Incredible 2,876 SUPER GOLD CHIP MEARS RATING.

Maryland Super Wide Receiver D.J. Moore and Penn State Super Tight End Mike Gesicki!

2018 SCOUTING COMBINE

SCOUTING NOTE I: If the Player did not Participate in The Scouting Combine Measurables or If he Improved his Measurable at His Pro-Day,  I Listed that Measurable in Blue. If he was Injured at both The Combine and Pro Day, I gave him his “Best-Ever” in that Measurable.

SCOUTING NOTE II: Although The MEARS RATINGS are Based on a Player and his Measurables in Relationship to a Set Standard for his Position, there are also Coaches Evaluation Points that are also Very Important. I have Evaluated every Player in These Top Players process and although every Player received 100 or 200 Evaluation Points, some Players with Weak Measurables were Absolute Freaks on their Highlight Film or in The Super Scouting Combine or Pro Day Drills and consequently were given Extra Evaluation Points.

SCOUTING NOTE III: RB/RET Saquon Barkley and Denzel Ward might be Two of the Most Incredible Football Players to ever be Drafted. Barkley, is not only a Sensational Football Player, he is the First NFL Player in a 17-Year History of THE MEARS RATING to Reach The 2,900 MEARS RATING PLATEAU as he Reached Maximum Points in Every Single Speed and Strength Measurable.

2018 NFL DRAFT 55 SPECIAL SLEEPERS

All of These Special Sleepers were Evaluated with a “Little-Different” Process than All of These Top NFL Players, because some of These Special Sleepers would Rate Higher than These Top Rated NFL Players.

We will Start with a Defensive Freak Named Kendall Donnerson of SE Missouri State who Competed with Saquan Barkley who Broke The MEARS RATING RECORD at The 2018 Scouting Combine. 

Image result for Kendall Donnerson Pictures

At Southeast Missouri State, The Incredible Athletic Trio of EDGE Rusher Kendall Donnerson, CB Mike Ford, and OLB Chad Meredith were not invited to The Scouting Combine, but they were Unbelievably Athletic at some Various Amazing Pro Days at some Off-Campus Pro DaysAll three Players did Off-Campus Pro Days, with Donnerson and Ford at Missouri Western Pro Day and Meredith at Louisville Pro Day.

Donnerson decided to “Stand-On”  his Missouri Western Pro Day Incredible Measurables while Ford decided to go “Full-Speed”  again at SEMO. Ford (5-11, 190) Recorded a 4.4 Forty; a 4.15 Pro Shuttle; a 40-Inch Vertical Jump; and an Incredible 132-Inch Standing Broad Jump.

Super EDGE Rusher Donnerson (6-3, 249) Ran a 4.43 Forty; did a 40-Inch Vertical Jump; a 4.37 Pro Shuttle; did a 131-Inch Standing Broad Jump; and 20 Reps on The Bench Press. His Forty, Vertical Jump, Pro Shuttle, and Standing Broad Jump are All Numbers that would have led all of The EDGE Rushers at The 2018 NFL Scouting Combine; which has The Attention of Most All of The NFL Scouts.

Donnerson is Probably a “Little-Raw” but with Incredible Athletic Talent to Help any NFL Football Team Better with his First Game. Projected as a Free Agent which is Laughable.

Brigham Young Super-Star Wide Receiver Jonah Trinnaman (#3 In Photo) is hoping that he will get the The Call from One of The NFL Teams on NFL Draft Day, on April 26-28 and although he did not get an Invite to NFL The Scouting Combine, he “Put-Up” some “Mind-Boggling” Measurables at The BYU Pro Day“I think The Bears had me at a 4.25 in the Forty,” Trinnaman said in a Pro Day Interview. Trinnaman also said that The Bears took him out to Dinner after his Pro Day.

If Trinnaman had been Invited to The NFL Scouting Combine and ran his Official 4.26 Forty, he would have been the Fastest Player at The Combine. Top 50 Cornerback Denzel Ward of Ohio State; Donte Jackson of LSU; and Parry Nickerson of Tulane ran a 4.32 Forty and were the Fastest Players at The Combine.

Trinnaman began his College Career at Snow Junior College in Utah and in 2015, he was Selected to The NJCAA First-Team All-America Special Teams as an Unbelievable Kick Returner as he Returned Three Kickoffs for a Touchdown, including a 99-Yard Return for Touchdown.

Image result for Matthew Thomas Football Photos

Super-Star Inside Linebacker Matthew Thomas (#13) is an Athletic Freak and it’s impossible for me to believe that he would be Projected To Be Drafted in the Sixth or Seventh Round of  The NFL Draft. Thomas ran a 4.44 at The Florida State Pro Day after he had run a 4.29 Pro Shuttle at The Scouting Combine and he now has all of The NFL Scouts Buzzing.

Image result for Leon Jacobs Photos

Leon Jacobs (#32) was Outstanding on his Highlight Film and he was Invited to The Scouting Combine where he was One of The Most Impressive Linebackers. His 4.48 in The Forty Ranked Second in Linebackers behind Shaquen Griffin and his Famous 4.38 and his 26 Reps on the Bench Press Tied for Third Among all Edge-Rushers. It’s Difficult to Believe that Leon Jacobs would be Projected in Round #6.

THE NFL HAS JUST BEEN CHARKED! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

THE NFL HAS JUST BEEN CHARKED!
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Super Wide Receiver D.J. Chark (#8) has been a “Wide Receiver “Freak” and “Under The Radar” for at least Three or Four Years, but Guess Who was The Fastest and Most Athletic Wide Receiver at The 2018 NFL Scouting Combine.

This former LSU Wide Receiver ran The Fastest 40-Yard Dash with an Amazing 4.34 Seconds Timing and it “Put-Him” at The Top of the Wide Receivers List in The NFL Scouting Combine, in Preparing for The Up-Coming 2018 NFL Draft.

There were Some Other Players who had “A Chance” to “Run-Down” This Incredible Chark Forty Time, and Particularly some of the Great Defensive backs, who Ran on Monday and one of his Former LSU Cornerback Teammates, Donte Jackson was Expected To Be in The Running with a Super-Fast forty Clocking Time and he did not Disappoint.

And indeed, on Monday, Three Super-Fast Cornerbacks, including Denzel Ward of Ohio State; Parry Nickerson of Tulane; and LSU Teammate Donte Jackson Ran a 4.32 Forty. Free Safety Troy Apke of Penn State also Tied Chark with a 4,34 Clocking.

The Impressive Chark Run on Saturday was Not only The Fastest Wide Receiver Forty, but there was only one other Wide Receiver that Broke a 4.4 Forty and the Only Other Forty in The 4.3’s was a 4.37 Forty by Marquez Valdes-Scantling of South Florida.

Another Very Impressive Measurement of Both Receivers was that Chark was 6-3 Tall and Valdes-Scantling was 6-4 Tall and both of Those Measurables should help both of them To-Improve their NFL Draft Stock for April NFL Draft.

Chark also turned in the best Vertical Jump among Wide Receivers with a 40-Inch Jump. Only Three Running Backs had a 40-Plus Vertical Jump, including RB Saquon Barkley (41) of Penn State, RB Bo Scarbrough (40) of Alabama, and RB Kerryon Johnson (40) of Auburn.

Chark Recorded an Outstanding 129-Inch Standing Broad Jump which Tied for Fourth among all Wide Receivers, and his 16-Reps of 225 Pounds on The Bench Press Tied for 11th at The Wide Receiver Position.

The Overall Measurables of Chark were Unbelievable, as he had an Outstanding 40-Inch Vertical Jump, a 4.13 Pro-Shuttle, and a 129-Inch Standing Broad Jump. Chark (6-3, 199, 4.34, 40, 4.13, 129, 16) Recorded an Incredible 2,753 Super Gold Chip MEARS RATING.

Before The 2018 Scouting Combine, Chark was a Highly Under-Rated and Under The Radar Athlete, because The NFL Scouts were NEVER Able to get a Really Great Reading on him, because of his Lack of Production in The “Run-Offense” of LSU. There were Times when Chark was Standing in the End-Zone, in the Clear. Clark had Unbelievable Athletic Skills ever since High School, but when The NFL Scouts would Check his Stats, they were Never Good Enough to get their Attention, but after this 2018 Super Combine Performance, “Things” have already Changed with The NFL Scouts.

Check Out The Chark 4,34 Forty: 

http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-combine/0ap3000000918925/D-J-Chark-at-4-34-runs-40-yard-dash-faster-than-DeSean-Jackson

Check Out Interview at NFL Scouting Combine:

Chark was Invited to The Reese Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama and he was Selected as The Co-MVP of The Senior Bowl as he was Outstanding with Five Catches for an Amazing 160-Yards

NFL Network Draft Expert Mike Mayock Selected Chark as one of The Senior Bowl Week’s Top Performers and He Impressed Every Single NFL Coach and NFL Scout during all of The Practices During The Week.

According to ESPN, Chark is the First Player since 2006 to have such a Combination of 40 Time, Bench Press Reps, and Vertical Jump. The last player to hit those Measurables was Safety Michael Huff, who was a #1 Draft Choice and 7th Overall Selection in The 2006 NFL Draft.

 

CHARK WAS AN OUTSTANDING SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL!

D.J. Chark was a Great Wide Receiver in High School from Alexander, Louisiana, but he was a Great Player that was “Under The Radar” before he Signed with LSU and New LSU Offensive Coordinator and Long-Time Good Friend Steve Ensminger. In 2013, as a Senior in High School, Clark Caught 48 Passes for 554-Yards and Three Touchdowns.

CHARK WAS UNDER THE RADAR FOR THE LAST FOUR YEARS!

Chark did not Score a Touchdown in 2014, but in 2015, he Scored a Touchdown, but it was not from a Pass-Catch, but on a 79-Yard Touchdown Run on an End-Around Reverse in The LSU Tigers 56-27 Victory over Texas Tech.

Then in 2016, Chark  finally caught his first pass in a Game in a Game #2 for 12-Yards in the 34-13 Win over Jacksonville State. Chark also Caught three more passes for 52-Yards with a 37-Yard Touchdown in the 23-20 Win over Mississippi State in game #3.

All this Time, Chark was a Tremendous and Athletic Super Wide Receiver who Apparently was Either Lost in the Shuffle on The Wide Receiver Board or Purposely Being Over-Looked on The Wide Receiver Board.

Before the 2017 Season Started, Chark had 26 Career Receptions for 466-Yards and Three Touchdowns. He also had Added Another 201-Yards Rushing and Three More Touchdowns. Then as a Senior, Chark Recorded 40 More Catches for 874-Yards, and another Three Touchdowns and had an Outstanding 21.9-Yards Per-Catch Average.

On his 66 Career Catches, Chark Averaged 20.1-Yards Per Catch and he was still a Huge Big-Play Threat, but, even in 2017, The LSU Quarterbacks still could Never get him the Football on a Consistent Basis. In order to Completely Utilize his Versatility, Chark Changed his Jersey Number from #82 to #7 for his Last Season.

With about 14-Minutes Left in the Auburn Game and The Auburn Tigers Winning 23-14, Chark Lined-Up to Return a Punt and The LSU Crowd was Pretty Calm and Praying for a Miracle. Then, all of a sudden, Chark Caught the Football on the 25-Yard Line, Back-Tracked about Six-Yards and Started Running Toward the Left Sideline, where a Great Punt Return Wall had Formed and he Returned the Punt 75-Yards for The LSU Touchdown.

Image result for D.J. Chark Senior Bowl PhotosOnce Chark (#7) got to the Sideline, after Scoring in the PhotoThe LSU Crowd Started to get Louder and Louder and Continued for 11.87 Seconds until he Reached the End-Zone to Make the Score 23-21 with 14:33 Left in the Game. Then, it got even Louder and Louder; while Making The LSU Tiger Stadium Shake and Continue to Shake after LSU Kicker Connor Culp Kicked the Winning 42-Yard Field Goal with 2:36 Left in the Game and then he Kicked another 36-Yard Insurance Field Goal with 38-Seconds Left in the Game to make the Final Score 27-23 and an LSU Victory.

I live about 15-Miles from The LSU Stadium and on Saturday Night on this Historic Night, I really believe that I was Still Hearing the LSU Crowd Hours after this Historic LSU Game and Victory.

In this Historic Victory, Chark Caught Five Passes for 150-Yards and Returned Two Punts for 83-Yards and a Touchdown, giving him 233-Yards of Total Offense and he was One of my Weekly College Football MVP’s.

Chark is the Only LSU Player in LSU History To Score on a Running Play and a Passing Play of 75-Yards or More. He Scored on an Incredible 79-Yard Touchdown Run in his “First-Career-Touch” in the 2015 Texas Bowl Victory over Texas Tech and then he Caught an 80-Yard Touchdown Pass against Southern Miss in 2016.

Super Wide Receiver D.J. Chark is an Extremely Explosive and Speedy Wide Receiver who “Can-Score” anytime that he “Touches the Football” and he was Supposed to be The LSU “Go-To” Receiver in 2017, but with the Pathetic and Erratic LSU Passing Game, The LSU Quarterbacks were NEVER able to Find-Him on their Pass PatternsAfter all of this, Chark still got invited to Play in The Senior Bowl.

With this Unbelievably Great Combination of Speed, Quickness, Pass Route-Running, and Tremendous Pass-Catching Abilities, he was Supposed to make LSU one of the Best Wide Receivers in the Country in College Football, and a Definite #1 NFL Draft Choice, but with the “Unsettled” LSU Offense and Quarterback Situation, Chark was Never able to be The All-American Wide Receiver until he got to The Senior Bowl.

Image result for D.J. Chark PhotosThe D.J. Chark 75-Yard Punt Return for a Touchdown Against Auburn was the SEC Play Of The Year and so Getting to Play in The Prestigious Senior Bowl was a Great Honor for him and “Very-Well” Deserved, although his Senior Stats were not Overly Awesome. Chark, however, did Catch 40 Passes and with a Great 21.9 Yards Per Catch Average.

Before getting to Mobile, and because of his Unbelievable Potential, I had Chark (6-3, 196, 4.32, 40, 4.02, 32) Rated and Ranked as a #1 Draft Choice in the 2018 NFL Draft, but most NFL Scouts had him Listed as a #2 Round Draft Choice. His 2,662 MEARS RATING is Off-The-Charts.

Chark Started to Impress the NFL Scouts in the First Practice on Monday and Finished The Game on Saturday with 5 Catches for a Career-High 160-Yards and Two Touchdowns of 63 and 75-Yards. Chark also Played on the Special Teams and made a Tackle on the Kickoff.

The Former LSU Wide Receiver Saved his Best Pass-Catching Performance for his Biggest Game and Most Important Game of his Career and in Front of a National TV Audience on The NFL Network and NFL Scouts in the Press Box, watching his Every Move.

With this Unbelievable and Mind-Boggling Performance, Chark was Selected as The South Team Co-MVP. His 160-Yards was more Receiving Yards than in any one game during his Entire LSU Career.

Another Skill that impressed The NFL Scouts was his Ability and Willingness to Play on Special Teams and Chark played on the Kickoff Team and he also practiced on The Punt Return Team.

Playing on Special Teams is a great way for young Potential NFL Players to turn heads of Many of The NFL Scouts in the NFL. Chark, Showing a  Willingness To Play on both The Kickoff Team and Punt Return Teams will Help All-Purpose Super-Star D.J. Chark to be Drafted on the First Day of The 2018 NFL Draft.

Image result for D.J. Chark Senior Bowl Photos

D.J. CHARK SUPER SEVENTY-FIVE
YARD TOUCHDOWN CLUB!

In 2015, Chark Scored on a 79-Yard Touchdown Run on an End-Around Reverse in The LSU Tigers 56-27 Victory over Texas Tech.

In 2016, Chark Caught an 80-Yard Touchdown Pass against Southern Miss.

Bonus Catch: In 2016, Chark is making a Circus-Catch on his Back as he Ripped the Football Away From The Defender.

In 2018, Chark Making another Bonus Catch as he Caught a 75-Yard Touchdown Pass in the 2018 Reese’s North/South Senior Bowl Game.

Super Wide Receiver Freak Daurice Fountain Had A Mind-Boggling Pro-Day On Sunday! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Super Wide Receiver Freak Daurice Fountain Had A  Mind-Boggling Pro-Day On Sunday!
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

There were some Impressive Measurables at The 2018 NFL Scouting Combine, but I was “A-Little” Disappointed in many of The Performances of Most of The Top Wide Receivers at The Scouting Combine. There was also another Wide Receiver from Northern Iowa, Named Daurice Fountain, who was not invited to The 2018 NFL Scouting Combine and he Recorded some “Mind-Boggling” Measurables at his Northern Iowa Pro-Day on Sunday.

In fact, some of his Measurables on Sunday were Just About as Impressive to The NFL Scouts, which also included 27 NFL Professional Teams in Attendance and he now has all of The NFL Scouts “Buzzing-About-Him” in Preparation for The 2018 Draft.

Daurice Fountain has been making NFL Draft Noise for a few months now. That NFL Excitement should only increase after Sunday’s strong Northern Iowa Pro Day Showing.

The NFL Chatter about Super Wide Receiver Daurice Fountain at The East-West Shrine All-American Bowl Game was when he was Selected as The Offensive MVP of The Game as he Recorded 101-Yards of Total Offense in The Game. His 101-Yards of All-Purpose Yards Included 3 Catches for 61-Yards and 2 Punt Returns for another 40-Yards.

His 30-Yard Punt Return in the Third Quarter Led to The East Team only Touchdown and gave them the only Lead of The Game. Fountain also Recorded The Longest Pass-Catch of the Game, along with The Longest Punt Return of The Game.

With All 27 NFL Teams in attendance, the Northern Iowa Super-Star Wide Receiver Broke The Vertical Jump Combine-Best of 40-Inch Vertical Jump of D.J. Chark of LSU for all Wide Receivers when he Did an Unbelievable 42.5-Inch Vertical Jump. If this was not Impressive Enough, Fountain did another Incredible Jump when he Did a 134-Inch Standing Broad Jump as he broke the Best Standing Broad Jump of 132-Inch Jump of D.J. Moore of Maryland.

Fountain (6-1, 210) also Ran an Impressive  4.46 in The Forty and did 14 Reps on the 225 Bench Press. His Forty would have Tied for 10th for all Wide Receivers at The 2018 NFL Scouting Combine.

This Unbelievable, Louisiana Businessman was The NFL Sports Franchise Team Owner of The New Orleans Saints since 1985 and then he Extended his Sports Ownership to Professional Basketball in 2012, when he reached an Agreement to buy The New Orleans Hornets for a payment of $338 Million Dollars to The National Basketball Association, which had Already Taken-Over The NBA Team.

Benson, later Renamed Those New Orleans Hornets to The New Orleans Pelicans, In Honor and For The Louisiana State Bird, and The NBA Franchise was then Stabilized and Benson Became The NBA Sports Franchise Team Owner of The New Orleans Pelicans Team since 2012.

Gayle Benson, his Wife, now owns both The Saints and The Pelicans.

This may Sound Pretty Standard, but with Thomas Milton Benson, there was Never too many Things that were Standard. Benson was Born and Raised in The New Orleans 7th Ward, and he Graduated from Saint Aloysius Catholic High School in New Orleans, Louisiana and of Loyola University.

Benson also Served in the U.S. Navy before becoming an Automobile Salesman and Then Owning and Operating several Automobile Dealerships in Louisiana and Texas.

Then, in 1985, Benson Entered The Complete New World of The NFL.

In 1985, John Mecom was The New Orleans Saints Owner. Mecom had Owned The New Orleans Saints since The Franchise Inception in 1960, but he was getting Ready To-Locate The New Orleans Saints to Jacksonville, Florida.

A lot of New Orleans Saints Fans were Never Aware that Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards wanted to Keep The Saints in New Orleans and so He Tried To Convince a 58-Year-Old Businessman Named Benson, to Invest in The NFL New Orleans Saints Franchise, Buy The Saints, and Then Keep The Saints Franchise Team in New Orleans.

“We’ve got The Number One Fans, and I am Gonna Promise you this: We’re gonna have the Number One Team, too,” said Benson, on the day that he Bought The New Orleans Franchise.

Two of the Most Impressive Promises that Benson Made and he then Delivered Immediately was His Two Famous First Hires, as he hired Famed General Manager Jim Finks as The Saints New General Manager and then he also Hired One of The Best Football Head Coaches on The Planet, in Coach Jim Mora, who had just Won The United States Football League Championship.

In their Second Season, The Two NFL Legends of Finks and Mora, built a Potential NFL Playoff Team that had “Benson-Boogying” around The City of New Orleans.

The “Benson-Boogie” became a staple in The Superdome in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, when The New Orleans Saints won two NFL Division Championships and made an Amazing Four Trips Into The NFL Playoffs.

The Benson Trademark was “The Benson Boogie” with an Umbrella in his Hand, was Quintessential New Orleans.

Tom Benson Celebrating a 23-3 Victory over The Atlanta Falcons in 2006. It Was The First NFL Game That Was Played In The Superdome After Katrina.

But there were also a Lot of Struggles, but were mostly Off-The-Field.

There were Battles with the State of Louisiana over Lease Agreements; then threats to relocate if amenities weren’t delivered; and finally in 2005, Hurricane Katrina Ravaged The City of New Orleans.

After Hurricane Katrina, The New Orleans Saints were Temporarily Relocated to San Antonio, Texas and since Benson was Considering a Permanent Move To Texas, he became The Saints Public Enemy Number One. 

It was an ugly, ugly time For The Saints, but it Ended in December 2005, when, Benson Finally Made a Decision to Bring The Saints “Back-Home” to New Orleans. After “The Move Back to New Orleans, all of The Saints Fans were Ecstatic and Benson was Able to Keep The Saints Together Throughout the Horrible Tragedy of Hurricane Katrina, and his Decision to bring the team back to New Orleans and gave The Entire New Orleans Area A-Hope and A Confidence that they would be Able To Recover.

After The Horrible Hurricane Katrina, all of New Orleans People and The Entire State of Louisiana, were “In-Shell-Shock” and Trying to Help Each-Other to Find Food and Lodging. All through this Critical Time, Benson kept The Saints Players and The Saints Fans together throughout the time before he made the  decision to bring The Saints Team back to New Orleans and it gave the Entire New Orleans Area A-Hope and A-Confidence that they would Recover from The Loss of The Saints and The Hurricane Katrina.

After Katrina, Tom Benson Hires Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Coach And Passing Game Cordinator – Coach Sean Payton

In 2005, after Hurricane Katrina, While Everyone in Louisiana was Trying to Recover from The Horrible Hurricane and while The Entire New Orleans Saints Football Team was “In-Shell-Shock” and Trying to Take Care of Their Families and a Place For Them To Stay, Tom Benson Performed a Couple of Huge Miracles when he Made Two Monster-Moves.

In 2003, an Outstanding Quarterback Coach Named Sean Payton Joined Head Coach Bill Parcells and The Dallas Cowboys as an Assistant Head Coach and Quarterbacks Coach where he Helped Coach QB Quincy Carter, QB Vinny Testaverde, and QB Drew Bledsoe and Coach Sean Payton Coached all Three Quarterbacks to 3,000-Yard Passing Seasons.

Then in 2005, Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Bill Parcells Promoted Coach Payton to Assistant Head Coach and Passing-Game Coordinator for The Dallas Cowboys.

In The Wake Of Hurricane Katrina, And With  Help From Blessed Father Francis Seelos, Tom Benson Performed Two BBP Miracles For The Saints!

I do not Know,  for sure, that Tom Benson had Help from Blessed-Father Francis Seelos, but when I need a MIRACLE-TO-PERFORM, I always Bring-Out My “Blessed-Francis-Xavier-Seelos” Prayer for a Miracle Card and I Always Receive a Miracle.

Although I live about an Hour from New Orleans, Tom Benson and Father Francis Seelos were both from New Orleans, and Benson was also a “Very Staunch” Catholic, I would Seriously Bet that Tom Knew All-About Father Seelos and his Prayers for Miracles.

Image result for Father Francis seelos miracles Photos

In the Wake of Hurricane Katrina and just after The 2005 Season, as The Saints Recorded a Heart-Breaking 3-13 Record, Ranking as the Second Worst Team in the NFL, Tom Benson Was Desperately In Need Of Some “Big-Time Miracles. He also was in The Process of Trying To Completely Turn-Around The Struggling City of New Orleans and The New Orleans Saints.

Still in The Midst of Hurricane Katrina, Tom Benson Performed his FIRST MIRACLE as he Hired Coach Sean Payton Away from The Dallas Cowboys and thus Giving Coach Sean Payton His First NFL Head Football Coaching Job with The New Orleans Saints. 
Benson, then Found-Out That There was an Outstanding San Diego Charger Quarterback Named Drew Brees who was Getting Ready to became a Free Agent after that 2005 Season, and it was Thought that he was not expected to return to The Chargers, because they had already Committed a Lot of Money to Quarterback Philip Rivers.
The Chargers eventually Designated Brees as their Franchise Player, giving him a One-Year Contract that Quadrupled his pay to $8 Million for the 2005 Year. Under the terms of a Franchise Player Contract, Brees Would then be Eligible to be Traded or Sign with another NFL Team, but The Chargers would then Receive two future #1 Draft Choices in return. Brees was not traded and he continued as Starting Quarterback for the remainder of the 2005 Season.

At this time, there were Two NFL Teams that needed a Quarterback and those Two Teams were The Miami Dolphins and The New Orleans Saints. The Saints were coming off of their Horrible 3-13 Record, and were Dealing with Hurricane Katrina, but they had just hired a new Head Football Coach Named Sean Payton and Drew Brees wanted to Sign with a Team that would Guarantee him a Starting Quarterback Spot.

The Dolphins wanted to Sign Brees, but The Dolphins did not want to offer him as much money as The Chargers and they would not Guarantee him a Starting Quarterback Spot. With new Head Football Coach Sean Payton, The Saints Offered The Same Salary as The Chargers, but Coach Payton was willing to Guarantee him a Starting Quarterback Spot if he could get Healthy before coming to The Saints Training Camp. Still in The Midst of Hurricane Katrina, Tom Benson Performed his SECOND MIRACLE and Both of His First Two Miracles Are In The Photo Below.

It only took Drew Brees one trip to The Katrina Stricken New Orleans Area to know that he Could make a huge difference in The Saints Football Team and also the People of New Orleans. So he Signed with The New Orleans Saints, got Healthy before Training Camp, and then The BBP Team, (Of Benson, Brees, & Payton) led The 2006 New Orleans Saints to an Unbelievable 10-6 Record In The First BBP Season Together.

In Their Memorable 2006 Football Season, With The Saints, Brees and Payton led The Saints to their First Playoff Appearance in 6 Years and they had one of the Top Productive Offenses, Ranking First in Passing and Fifth in points scored. The Saints won The NFC South with a 10–6 Record. The Saints also had a Bye in The First Round of The NFL Playoff and Won only their Second Playoff Game in Franchise History. This Playoff Victory gave them an NFC Championship Game Berth against The Chicago Bears.

In The NFC Championship Game, The Saints Out-Gained The Bears in Total Offense, but Lost The Game by a 39-14 Score. Later, in The Month, Head Coach Sean Payton Received 44 of 50 Votes for The AP NFL Coach of The Year Award.

After Signing with The Saints, Drew Brees Earned Nine Trips to The Pro Bowlwas a 2006 NFL All Pro Team Selection; was 2006 Walter Payton Player of the Year; was 2008 and 2011 Offensive Player of the Year; and was Super Bowl XLVI Super Bowl Game MVP Against The Indianapolis Colts.

Brees was also Selected 2004 Comeback Player of the Year; and In 2010, Sports Illustrated Selected Brees as The Sportsman of the Year for helping The City of New Orleans and The Saints Rebuild in the Aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Then, in 2009, Coach Payton and Drew Brees, were at Their Very Best as they both Aggressively Led The Saints to The Most Successful Football Season in Their NFL Franchise, as they Recorded an Unbelievable 13-3 Record and Finishing with a 31–17 Victory over The Indianapolis Colts in The 2009 Super Bowl XLIV.

In That 2009 Season, The Saints Finished First in The NFL in Yards with 7,474-Yards and Second in Points Scored with 547-Points. Brees broke The Dan Marino Single-Season Passing Record against The Atlanta Falcons on a very Memorable Monday Night Football Game.

The Saints Offense had only one game in 2011 in which they did not Record Over 300-Yards as a Team and it was in Week #8 in a Loss to The St. Louis Rams. Many Saints Fans Believed that if The New Orleans Saints would have Won against The 49ers in The Divisional Playoff Game, they would have Won their Second Super Bowl Lombardi Trophy.

Gayle Benson, Tom Benson, and The Lombardi Trophy, which The Saints Won by Defeating The Indianapolis Colts in The 2009 Super Bowl.

In The 2010 NFL Draft, The Saints #1 Draft Choice was Super Cornerback Patrick Robinson (5-11, 190, 4.46, 39, 4.14, 122, 15) and he did a Great 39-Inch Vertical Jump and a Fabulous 4.14 Pro-Shuttle; giving him a Super 2,680 MEARS RATING and The #16 Rated Overall MEARS PLAYER in The 2010 NFL Draft.

Patrick Robinson struggled with The Saints to Live-Up to being Their 2010 First-Round NFL Draft Choice during his time with The SaintsRobinson was The #32 Overall Pick in the 2010 NFL Draft,  just months after Sean Payton and Drew Brees Hoisted-Up The Lombardi Trophy after The Saints Super Bowl Victory over The Indianapolis Colts.

It was with The Philadelphia Eagles where Robinson had his best season of his Eight-Year NFL Career, and a season that ended with him winning a Super Bowl Ring for The Eagles.

After The Super Bowl Championship, Robinson Became a Free Agent and Signed a Four-Year Deal with The New Orleans Saints, worth up to $20 Million Dollars. Robinson  Played the last Three seasons with Three Different NFL Teams, including The San Diego Chargers in 2015, The Indianapolis Colts in 2016, and The Philadelphia Eagles in 2017.

“I know exactly what it takes to win a Super Bowl Ring,” Robinson said. “I’m going to try to do the same things that I did this past year, to help The Saints Players To Win a Super Bowl Ring. That is why I came Back to New Orleans, because I always knew that these guys had a chance to win a Super Bowl Ring, especially after last year, so that kind of helped me with my Decision.”

I knew that The Saints were Always Looking for The Athletically-Gifted Players and in 2010, their Top Three Draftees were in My Top 50 MEARS RATINGS List.

In 2011, Coach Sean Payton was at the LSU Indoor Facilities for LSU Pro-Day and we were talking and I decided to give him my 2011 NFL MEARS Top 150 RATINGS, in the White Binder, for the 2011 NFL Draft. I took a Photo of Coach Payton and Coach Gregg Williams. Both Coach Payton and Coach Williams really wanted their Top three Players and they also got them in The 2011 NFL Draft.

In The 2011 NFL Draft, The New Orleans Saints Top Three Players were Unbelievably on my Top 150 MEARS RATING List, but The Incredible “Thing” was That They Were in The Top 25 in my White Binder. I Really Never Talked to Coach Payton about it, but I Have Always Believed that The Saint Scouts have Always Been Looking for the Super Athletically Gifted Players and The Players that are Rated The Highest with GREAT MEARS RATINGS.

In 2011, The Saints Top Three Draft Choices were #1 Draft Choice and #23 Overall, DE Cameron Jordan of California; Another #1 Draft Choice and #28 Overall; and The Heisman Trophy Winning RB Mark Ingram of Alabama; and #3 Draft Choice and #72 Overall DE/LB Martez Wilson (6-4, 250, 4.44, 36, 4.28, 124, 23) of Illinois. Jordan and Ingram are Current Pro-Bowl Super Star Saints, while Wilson Recorded an Unbelievable 2,710 Fabulous Super Gold Chip MEARS RATING and he was with The Saints for Three Seasons, but now is Out of Football.

In The 2011 NFL Scouting Combine, Cameron Jordan (6-4, 287, 4.69, 31, 4.37, 117, 25) had a Mind-Boggling 2,749 Mind-Boggling Super Gold MEARS RATING, indicating that he was an Incredible Super Combine Freak. Jordan has been a Saints Super-Star From The Very First Day of 2011 Fall Practice.

In 2017, Jordan (#94) was Selected to The Pro Bowl for a good reason. The New Orleans Saints Defensive End was a disruptive force throughout The 2017 Season for The NFC South Championship Team. Jordan finished tied for Third in The NFL with 13 Quarterback Sacks and was also Third with 28 Quarterback First Hits. Jordan also recorded Multi-Sack Games in Victories The Atlanta Falcons and Detroit Lions, as well as in a loss to The Los Angeles Rams.

“I think that The Disruptions by Jordan have been Really Consistent all year, and that’s been very important for us,”said Coach Payton. His Performance is part of the reason that People are talking about Our Defense, rather than just the Brees-Led Offense.

The Saints finished Tied for seventh in The NFL with 42 Quarterback Sacks. Such pressure, led by Jordan, helped The Saints finish in The Top 10 in Scoring Defense, allowing 20.4 points per game. The Saints also Ranked 31st out of 32 teams in scoring defense a year ago while surrendering 28.4 points per game.

Super Running Back Mark Ingram (5-9, 215, 4.62, 31.5, 4.34, 118, 27) of Alabama; was a #2 NFL Draft Choice after Winning The 2009 Heisman Trophy and in The 2011 NFL Draft, Ingram (#22) he Recorded a Great  2,660 Blue Chip MEARS RATING.

After Rushing for 1,043-Yards in 2016, Ingram was in a Delicate and Unique Situation in 2017 as he Started the 2017 Season, Sharing Carries with former Minnesota Vikings Future Hall-Of-Fame Running Back Adrian Peterson and Rookie Running Back Alvin Kamara. Then, after The Saints Bye-Week, Ingram Recorded Two Consecutive 100-Yard Games Against The Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers which also Included his First Three Touchdowns of The Season.

In Week 10, Ingram led The NFL with 131-Yards Rushing and Three Touchdowns, Against The Buffalo Bills, which was his First Three-Touchdown Career-Game. These Three Touchdowns Moved Ingram into a Three-Way Tie with Ezekiel Elliott and Todd Gurley with Seven Touchdowns.

Ingram was Named to his Second Pro Bowl alongside Rookie-Of-The-Year, Kamara, and The Two Saints Running Backs became the First Running Back Duo in NFL History to have over 1,500-Yards from Scrimmage in the Same Season and  The Saints won the NFC South in the 2017 Season.

In 2017, Rookie Running Back Alvin Kamara was Incredible as he Joined Hall of Fame Running Back, Gale Sayers as The Only Two Rookies in NFL History with at Least Five Rushing Touchdowns, Five Receiving Touchdowns, and a Kickoff Return Touchdown with his 106-Yard Kickoff Return for a Touchdown and This 106-Yard Kickoff Return was The Longest Kickoff Return in New Orleans Saints History.

In 2017, both Running Back Alvin Kamara (#41) and Running Back Mark Ingram became The First Pair of NFL Running Backs to both Rush For 1,500-Yards from Scrimmage in The Same Football Season. Kamara was also Selected as The 2017 NFL Rookie-Of-The-Year

In 2017, The Saints Second-Year Wide Receiver, Michael Thomas, (#13) set an NFL Record with 196 Catches in his First Two NFL Football Seasons, as he Broke The NFL Record of 194 Catches by Jarvis Landry of The Miami Dolphins in The 2014 and 2015 SeasonsThomas tied Landry by Catching his 102nd Pass of this Season in the Fourth Quarter of The Saints 31-24 loss against The Tampa Bay Bucs.

This is Very Interesting, because if Brees is given Roster Bonuses, instead of Signing Bonuses, and it will allow The Saints to be able to Manage how The Money is Spread-Around.

The Saints Guaranteed $13.5 Million of The Brees Roster Bonus in 2018, which would allow The Saints To-Pro-Rate his Bonus Over Three Seasons.

With This Roster Bonus in Play, it looks-like The Saints are Leaving The $18 Million Dollars that is Remaining on The Brees Contract in Place as $6 Million Dollars will Hit in each of the next Three Seasons. This will mean that The Brees Salary Cap Charge in 2018 will be $24 Million Dollars and $33.5 Million Dollars in 2019.

In 2017. Brees Passed for 4,334-Yards and 23 Touchdowns, while leading The New Orleans Saints into the playoffs, where they lost, on the Last Play of The Game when a Saints Safety Missed a Tackle and sent the Minnesota Vikings to The Championship Game.

In The 2017 Football Season, Brees also set The NFL Record for Highest Completion Percentage in a Single Football Season, as he Completed an Unbelievable 72% of his Passes.

Brees Will Receive $27 Million in “Guaranteed-Money” that also Includes A-No-Trade-Clause. The Saints were not Allowed to use “The “Franchise-Tag” on Brees because of a Special Clause in his Contract.

The Eleven-Time Pro-Bowl Quarterback has Passed f0r 4,000-Yards or More Yards in Every Single Season that he has been with The New Orleans Saints.

Another Fact To-No on The Drew Brees Contract is that The Guarantees are all In-Place for The First Year of The Contract. Brees, however, has a Roster-Bonus of $11.95 Million Dollars in The Second Year of The Contract and that could be Turned-Into a Signing Bonus, which would Lower his Cap Number Down to Around $12.5 Million Dollars.

To be Honest, A lot of this Drew Brees Contract is Really Confusing, but The Most Important Point is The Fact that Drew Brees will Finish his Fabulous Hall-Of-Fame Career with The New Orleans Saints.

The Incredible Drew Brees Story is One of The Most Incredible Stories in The History of High School, College, and NFL Pro Football.

THE INCREDIBLE DREW BREES STORY!
By The Only One Who Knows The Real True Story
Super Scout Max Emfinger

Image result for drew brees photo gallery

Forty-Two Years Ago, in 1976, I was living in Dallas, Texas and was a Talent Scout for the Dallas Cowboys. Then, Twenty Years Later, I was living in Houston, Texas and was in the Astrodome and Scouting a High School Senior from Austin, Texas. I’m positive that I lost you in those first two Sentences, so let me explain.

Twenty Years after 1976 was 1996 and I was living in Houston, Texas. I had just Founded the First High School Football Recruiting Service in 1979 and I was getting ready to go to the Texas 5A Semi-Finals Football Game in the Astrodome. I will always remember that this 5A Semi-Finals Game was going to be a really great game between a Talented Local Aldine High School Team against an Undefeated Austin Westlake Team. At this Game in the Astrodome, I found out that the Austin Westlake Chaparrals had an Incredible Passing Quarterback and he was in Total Control of the Game from Start to Finish and the Chaps won that Game 42-21, sending them to the 1996 5A State Championship Game, again in the Astrodome on the Following Saturday, against another Super Football Team, Abilene Cooper.

After Austin Westlake easily beat an Always Tough Aldine Team, I decided to do some Research on this Westlake Super-Star, but Short, Quarterback. I knew that Drew Brees was not on my National High School Football Recruiting List or on any other College Football Recruiting Lists, but I also found-out that Brees had an ACL Injury as a Junior, but by leading his Team to a 15-0 Record and into the 5A Texas State Championship, this guy needed to be Recruited and Recruited by a Lot of Major College Football Teams.

I Immediately put Brees on my National Recruiting Top Players List and into the Max Emfinger’s National Recruiting Newsletter. With what I had already seen him do to a Powerful Aldine Team, I Rated and Ranked him as one of the Top Five or Six Quarterbacks in the Country and I could not wait until the 5A State Championship in the Astrodome.

In the 5A State Championship Game, I was on the Austin Westlake Sideline and I watched Brees with Great Interest on every single play and he was Incredible as he led his Chaps Team to an Unbelievably, Convincing 55-15 Victory over another Powerful Abilene Cooper Team and a Texas 5A State Football Championship.

In this 5A Texas State Championship Game, I also noticed that Brees had a Knee Brace on his Left Knee and after the Game, as I was leaving The Astrodome, I saw Brees and I was about to ask him how his Knee was doing, but some of his Teammates came-up to him and I decided not to try to ask him.

My 1996 December Recruiting Newsletter was Mailed the next weekend and I put his Final Passing Stats in it that included 211 of 333 Attempts for 3,528-Yards and 31 Touchdowns. This was Impressive, but his 64% Completion Record was just as  Impressive. The Max Emfinger’s National Football Recruiting Newsletter was sent to Around 12,000 Individual Recruiting-Buffs and about 75 College Football Teams, including Purdue and Texas. Later, in December, I got another Call from Purdue Offensive Coordinator/Recruiting Coordinator Jim Chaney and he asked me about this Quarterback named Drew Brees.

Purdue had just hired Head Coach Joe Tiller and Offensive Coordinator/Recruiting Coordinator Jim Chaney from Wyoming and they were a little behind in their Recruiting and they were looking for some “Recruiting Steals” on some Super-Star Players that might have been “Flying Under the Radar” to most College Teams. I Never talked to Coach Tiller, but I had talked to Coach Chaney a couple times and I knew that they were looking for Players like Drew Brees, Andy Dalton, and Kliff Kingsbury for Their Unbelievable Passing Spread Offense.

I then got another call from Coach Chaney in January and he told me that he and Coach Tiller both really liked Drew Brees and that they were going to have him in for an Official Visit on the Final Weekend in January before National Signing Date on the First Wednesday in February.

While at Purdue, Chaney, along with Head Coach Tiller, (Both in the Photo Below, became known for using the “Spread Offense” which was Famously “Dubbed” as “Basketball-On-Grass” at a Time in College Football History when Almost all of The Great Football Teams were Using The Running-Game and The Passing-Game was Considered a Huge Novelty and The Passing-Game was not even-being used. Later, it became The Air-Raid Passing Attack Offense with My Good Friend and Coach Mike Leach.

The Purdue Offensive Game Plan Relied on a Strong Passing-Game and The Chaney Offense was one of The Most Successful Offenses in the Country. This was evidenced by the fact that Their Future Super Bowl Winning Quarterback, Drew Brees, was His Starting Quarterback from 1997-2000 and this Unbelievable Passing Offense Broke Numerous Purdue, Big-10, and NCAA Passing Records.

New Georgia Head Football Coach Kirby Smart made his first big hire as The Georgia Head Football Coach when he made Coach Jim Chaney The New Bulldog Offensive Coordinator and Leader of his Georgia Offense. While Chaney has spent six of the last seven years of his career in the SEC, Many of the Bulldog Fans may not know much about the Long-Time Incredible Offensive Coordinator.

New Orleans Quarterback Drew Brees  put up Ridiculous Stats under Chaney at Purdue. From 1998-2000, Brees threw for 11,560 yards and 90 touchdowns.

There were also a number of Ironies with Drew Brees and his Signing with Purdue. The reason that I started my High School Football Recruiting Service in 1979 was because Big-Time Politics” had taken over College Football Recruiting to the point that you could not believe anything that the Media had to say about the Top Players. My wife, Ginger, told me one day: “If you don’t believe what the Sportswriters have to say, why don’t you start your own Service.” Politics in College Football Recruiting has gotten even worse since then, but that’s a Complete other Story, so let’s get back to the Drew Brees Story.

One huge Irony was the Fact that although Drew Brees Lived in Austin, and only a Few Miles from Brees, he was not Recruited by the Longhorns, because they had already Recruited Two Quarterbacks and had Verbal Commitments from both of them. The Longhorns thought that both of these Commitments Were Outstanding.

At that time, one of the Longhorn Recruits was a 6-1 Athletic Quarterback Named Major Applewhite of Baton Rouge Catholic, Louisiana, and I saw him play in Baton Rouge and I had him Rated as one of the Top Quarterback’s in the Country.

The other Longhorn Quarterback Recruit was a 6-4 No-Huddle Passing Quarterback Named Greg Ciero of Anaheim Servite, California. He also was a Top Quarterback and he had a lot of PotentialAs Freshmen, neither of these two Great Longhorn Quarterbacks would have to play, because they would both be playing behind Senior Super-Star James Brown.

Then, As a Sophomore, Applewhite became a Texas Super-Star, while Ciero Transferred to Polomar Junior College and then was Selected Junior College All-American before Transferring to Baylor University. The Irony was that all Three Quarterbacks that could have ended-up as a Texas Longhorn Became Super-Stars in 2000.

Although the ABC Quarterback Club of Applewhite, Brees, and Ciero were Highly Successful; only one of those Three Quarterbacks was Sitting in New York at both the 1999 and 2000 as Finalists for The Heisman Trophy Award.

Brees did not have an Eye-Popping Freshman Campaign, at Purdue, but Coach Chaney gave him a chance to be the Starting Quarterback for The Boilermakers Spread Offense as a Sophomore. Brees, then was so Unbelievably Impressive, as a Sophomore, Brees was Selected by his Teammates as the Boilers Team Captain in both his 1999 and 2000 Seasons.

After Finishing Fourth in the 1999 Heisman Trophy Voting, Brees had a chance to Come-Out Early for The 1999 NFL Draft, but he Decided to Stay With Coach Tiller and Coach Chaney and he decided to Come-Back for his 2000 Senior Season. In that Senior Season, Brees led the Boilermakers to Last-Minute UPSET Victories over both Ohio State and Michigan, giving Purdue, Coach Tiller, and Coach Chaney their First Big-10 Championship in Three Decades.

Drew BreesPurdue Coach Joe Tiller and Drew Brees as they Celebrate their Big-10 Championship and Trip to Pasadena!

Boilermaker Fans, had you ever thought we could be going to The Rose Bowl,” Brees Shouted to the Fans as he Accepted the Big-10 Championship Trophy. “This is, by far, The Greatest Moment of my Life, so Far,” Brees Further Said.

In that Game Against Indiana and Against one of my Long-Time, Good Friends, Head Coach Cam Cameron, Brees threw for one Touchdown and ran for another Touchdown. He Completed 20 of 29 Passes for 216-Yards and ran for another 85-Yards, giving him 301-Yards of Total Offense as he became the First Quarterback to lead The Boilermakers to Pasadena since Bob Griese. It was their First Big-10 Championship in 34 Years.

After another Fabulous Season, Brees was again Selected as a Finalist for The Heisman Trophy Award. The Top Four in the Heisman were Heisman Trophy Award Winning QB Chris Weinke of Florida State; QB Josh Heupel of Oklahoma; QB Drew Brees of Purdue; and RB LaDainian Tomlinson of TCU.

2000 Heisman Trophy Finalists L to R: QB Drew Brees, Purdue; Heisman QB Chris Weinke, FSU; RB LaDainian Tomlinson, TCU; and QB Josh Heupel, Oklahoma.

These Four Super-Star College Football Players were Sitting in New York City on December 9, 2000 for the Heisman Trophy Award.

The 2000 Heisman Trophy Award Re-United Two Great Football Players from Texas, including Brees from Austin Westlake and Tomlinson from Waco University, just  a few miles apart on I-35. In Fact, I lived in Austin, twice for Two Years and Waco twice for Six Years.

Brees and Tomlinson had both played together in a Texas High School All-Star Football Game and had become Great Friends after their High School Football Season and now these Two Great Texas Football Players were together again in New York City as Finalists for the Heisman Trophy. “Wouldn’t it be Great if we could both play on the same NFL Team,” Tomlinson told Brees in New York City.

Brees left Purdue with “Mind-Boggling” Stats and one of the Most Impressive Quarterbacks in Big-10 History as he broke Two NCAA Passing Records, 13 Big-10 Records, and 19 Purdue Passing Records. Some of these Records are still standing, including his 1,026 Completions for 11,815-Yards Passing, and 90 Touchdown Passes. His 12,692-Yards of Total Offense was also a Record. He also had Seven 400-Yard Games and Sixteen 300-Yard Games.

So now it’s time for The NFL Draft, but before the 2001 Draft, Brees attended the 2001 NFL Scouting Combine where he did much better than most NFL Scouts had expected. All of the NFL Scouts knew that he was about Six-Foot, but they did not know that he was so Quick as he Shocked them when he ran an Amazing 4.21 in the Pro-Shuttle. He ran a 4.83 Forty at the Scouting Combine, but on Pro-Day, he improved that Forty Time to a Great 4.67Also Remember that a lot of NFL Passing Quarterbacks can not run a 5.0 Forty.

I will NEVER forget the Night on The Dan Patrick Show when Brees laughingly read his NFL Draft Profile on the Air: “There is a Question about Drew Brees ability to throw the Deep Pass; his Accuracy is a Question, and of course, his Height is a Question.” – Brees laughingly Said.

Although Brees did not have Great Height, he had Incredible Passing Stats and Shockingly Great Measurables for a Passing Quarterback; but he was not Drafted until The San Diego Chargers took him in the First Pick of Round Two in the 2001 Draft which was the #32 Overall Selection.

Sometimes, The Lord works in Strange Ways his Miracles to Perform. In The 2001 NFL Draft, The San Diego Chargers selected RB LaDainian Tomlinson as their #1 Draft Choice.

Everyone thought that Drew Brees would be Drafted in the First Round of the 2001 NFL Draft, but too many NFL Teams believed that he was Too Short to become a Great Passing Quarterback in the NFL, but if he was Drafted in the First Round, he Would Have NEVER Been able to Play on The Same Team with his Good Friend, from Texas.

Ladainian Tomilson
The San Diego Chargers Got Two Incredible Texans in The 2001 NFL Draft Picks That Were Both Heisman Trophy Award Candidates in #21 RB LaDainian Tomlinson and #9 QB Drew Brees!

The Miracle that was Performed was that the San Diego Chargers were able to Re-Unite these Two Texans, Brees and Tomlinson, as they were able to Select Brees in the First Draft Pick of the Second Round of the NFL Draft to go with their #5 Overall Selection of Tomlinson in the First Round. The Chargers were able to get an Unbelievable Two Super-Star Players that were both in New York City for the Heisman Trophy Award.

With the help of The Miracle of Re-Uniting with his Texas Friend LaDainian Tomlinson, Brees began his NFL Career in 2002, with the San Diego Chargers. Then Two Years Later, with Offensive Coordinator Cam Cameron, Tomlinson, and Brees helped lead the Chargers to a Division Championship; while Tomlinson was Selected All-Pro and Brees was Selected to the 2004 NFL Pro Bowl.

These Two 2001 NFL Super Draft Picks (#9 QB Drew Brees) and (#21 RB LaDainian Tomlinson) Of The San Diego Chargers Helped The Chargers in 2004 To Win Their First Divisional Championship In A Decade And Both Players Are Future NFL Hall Of Fame Players!

Then Nine Months Later, in 2005, after suffering a Really Bad Shoulder Joint Dislocation and a 360 degree tear of his Labrum and Rotator Cuff, Brees became an NFL Free Agent.

In the last game of the 2005 Season, Brees should not have been playing in the Game. The Chargers were 9-6, but they had absolutely no chance of improving their NFL Playoff Seeding as the Game started. However, General Manager A.J. Smith and Head Coach Marty Schottenheimer had already started a War that would eventually lead to the Departure of Schottenheimer from The Chargers, because of the Quarterback Position War.

In his Rookie Season, Philip Rivers, although he was seen as the future Chargers Franchise Quarterback, was named as the Third Team Quarterback on The Chargers Roster behind Brees and Doug Flutie.  By not Starting Rivers, in the Last Game, it looked like it was a Punishment for Rivers, because he was a Hold-Out and missed part of The Training Camp. In this Last Game of the Season, Schottenheimer made the decision to start Drew Brees in a Meaningless Game so that the fans would not see their Young Future Super-Star Philip Rivers.

So, here is what happened. Standing in his own End-Zone, Drew Brees was Sacked by a blitzing John LynchHe fumbled The Football when he was hit, and when he dove back on top of the Football, Brees was Crushed by Gerald Warren in a Bone-Rattling Tackle. Brees left the Football Game in obvious pain and he then handed the team over to Philip Rivers.

As Brees became a Free Agent after that 2005 Season, he was not expected to return to The Chargers, because they had already Committed a Lot of Money to Quarterback Philip Rivers. The Chargers eventually designated Brees as their Franchise Player, giving him a One-Year Contract that quadrupled his pay to $8 Million for the 2005 Year. Under the terms of a Franchise Player Contract, Brees would then be Eligible to be Traded or Sign with another NFL Team, but The Chargers would then Receive two future #1 Draft Choices in return. Brees was not traded and continued as Starting Quarterback for the remainder of the 2005 Season.

At this time, there were Two NFL Teams that needed a Quarterback and those Two Teams were The Miami Dolphins and The New Orleans Saints. The Saints were coming off of a Horrible 3-13 Record, and Dealing with Hurricane Katrina, but they had just hired a new Head Football Coach named Sean Payton and Brees wanted to Sign with a Team that would Guarantee him a Starting Quarterback Spot.

The Dolphins wanted to Sign Brees, but The Dolphins did not want to offer him as much money as The Chargers and they would not Guarantee him a Starting Quarterback Spot. With new Head Football Coach Sean Payton, The Saints Offered The Same Salary as The Chargers, but Coach Payton (In Photo Below with #9 Brees) was willing to Guarantee him a Starting Quarterback Spot if he could get Healthy before coming to The Saints Training Camp.

It only took Brees one trip to Katrina Stricken New Orleans to know that he Could make a huge difference in The Saints Football Team and also the People of New Orleans. So he Signed with The Nre Orleans Saints, got Healthy before Training Camp, and then led them to an Unbelievable 10-6 Record in his First Season.

After Signing with The Saints, Drew Brees Earned Nine Trips to The Pro Bowlwas a 2006 NFL All Pro Team Selection; was 2006 Walter Payton Player of the Year; was 2008 and 2011 Offensive Player of the Year; and was Super Bowl XLVI Super Bowl Game MVP Against The Indianapolis Colts. Brees was also Selected 2004 Comeback Player of the Year; and was also Selected in 2011 by Sports Illustrated as Sportsman of the Year.

Brees currently has played 17 Years in The NFL; Playing Five Years with The Chargers and Twelve Years with The Saints. His Hall of Fame Career Stats in 249 Games, include 6,222 Completions out of 9,294 Attempts for 70,445-Yards Passing and an Incredible 488 Touchdown Passes.

Brees takes Great Pride in his On-The-Field Performances, but he also takes Great Pride in his Community Service Endeavors. Drew and his Beautiful Wife, Brittany, Established The Brees Dream Foundation in 2003 and since then have Contributed and Committed almost $25,000,000 to help improve the quality of life for Cancer Patients and To-Provide Care, Education, and Other Outstanding Opportunities for Children and families in need. Brees has also proudly participated in five USO Trips to Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, Germany, Turkey, Djibouti, Dubai, Okinawa, and Guantanamo Bay.

Lamar Jackson Looks Like An Outstanding NFL Quarterback! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

LAMAR JACKSON LOOKS LIKE AN OUTSTANDING NFL QUARTERBACK
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Image result for Lamar Jackson Photos

SCOUTING NOTE I: The Measurables of a Football Prospect are of Great Importance, but it is Very Obvious that some Very Successful NFL Teams feel that they are of Great Importance, while some other NFL Teams do not believe that they are of Very Importance. The Ultimate Reason that the NFL Scouting Combine is so Important, because in many cases, this is the Very First Time that the NFL Scouts get a chance to Really View how Fast and how Athletic that a Prospect is in Relationship to his Position with other Players at the Same Position.

SCOUTING NOTE II: Before a Player is Drafted and Given Millions of Dollars, NFL Teams have got to have Current Measurables on Every Player on their Big Board.  In 1976, when I was with the Cowboys, Texas Tech had a “Try-Out” Camp and a Wide Receiver ran a much Faster Forty than we had as his best Forty. Since we needed to know how Accurate his New Forty was, Gil Brandt put me on a Plane to Lubbock to Run him in another Forty, to Update Our Files. When I got to Lubbock, it was Raining, but their Basketball Gym had a Long Straight Lobby that Included about Sixty Yards so I Marked-Off Forty Yards and he Ran a 4.38 and a 4.39 Forty, giving us the Accurate Measurable that we Needed.

SCOUTING NOTE III: Although The MEARS RATINGS are Based on a Player and his Measurables in Relationship to a Set Standard for his Position, there are also Coaches Evaluation Points that are also Very Important. I have Evaluated every Player in this Top 32 Players process and although every Player received 100 or 200 Evaluation Points, some Players with Weak Measurables were Absolute Freaks on their Highlight Film and consequently were given Extra Evaluation Points.

SCOUTING NOTE IV: RB/RET Saquon Barkley might be the Most Incredible Football Player to ever be Drafted. Barkley, is not only a Sensational Football Player, he is the First NFL Player in a 17-Year History of THE MEARS RATING to Reach The 2,800 MEARS RATING PLATEAU as he Reached Maximum Points in Every Single Speed and Strength Measurable. It was also Incredible that Two Ohio State Players Reached The 2,700 MEARS RATING PLATEAU, but both CB Denzel Ward and OC Billy Price also had Incredible Speed and Strength Measurables.

SCOUTING NOTE V: Although all of the Top 48 Players are Sensational Football Players, Two Players were Exceptional at a Time when they Weighed Less Pounds and that was Defensive Tackle Vita Vea and Linebacker Tremaine Edmunds. At 100-Pounds Lighter, Vea Did an Incredible 43-Inch Vertical Jump and Ran a 4.5 Forty when he Weighed 235-Pounds. Edmunds was a 220-Pound Linebacker and Running Back and Ran in The 4.4-4.5 Area.

SCOUTING NOTE VI: Also, do not Forget that Heisman Trophy QB Baker Mayfield was a Walk-on at both Texas Tech and Oklahoma; QB Lamar Jackson (#8) may The Most Athletic Quarterback ever Drafted; and DE Marcus Davenport and DE Harold Landry may be The two Biggest Surprises in The NFL Draft.

NFL PRE-SCOUTING COMBINE TOP 32 MEARS RATINGS

SCOUTING NOTE VII: On February 22, 2018, before The 2018 Scouting Combine Measurables Began on March 2, this NFL Pre-Scouting Combine Top 32 Potential NFL Players were Rated and Ranked on The MEARS RATING SYSTEM with Their Current Best Measurables. There were Some Shocking Ratings, including Lamar Jackson as The #1 Quarterback.

THE MEARS RATING SYSTEM

When I was with the Dallas Cowboys in 1975-77, we had a Rating System and when I left the Cowboys in 1977, I developed a similar Rating System that we had used in the 1976 and 1977 NFL Draft. The 1977 NFL Draft was the Tony Dorsett Draft and we used this Rating System to conclude that Dorsett was The Cowboys #1 Player in that 1977 NFL Draft.

Although I developed my Rating System, when I left the Cowboys, I did not Start using The Rating System until 2001, when NIKE Sports developed a similar Rating System and called it the SPARQ RATING SYSTEM. I then decided to bring back my Rating System and I called it the MAX EMFINGER ASSET RATING SYSTEM or MEARS RATING.

ASSET stands for Agility, Strength, Stamina, Explosiveness, and Technique. These are the essential tools for a superior athletic performance in any competitive Sport or Event. This new MEARS RATING SYSTEM or a similar Rating System, identifies overall Athletic Ability, and it can be used by Top College and Pro Coaches around the country as an initial indicator of the Athletic Potential on the Football Field.

Whether you are a College Football Coach and you only have One Scholarship Left to give in your current Recruiting Class or you are an NFL Team and you only have only One Draft Choice Left on your current NFL Draft Board, there needs to be a Rating System that you can go to and based on the highest rated player, would give you the very best player available irregardless of position.

By 2001, all of the other Recruiting Services were using the Five-Star Rating System Method which does not Measure anything. One year, at the start of the Spring, there were 45 Wide Receivers that were Rated a Four-Star. We went to bed one night and the next morning there were only 25. Someone had decided that there could only be 25 Four-Star Wide Receivers in The Country and he had demoted 20 of them to a Three-Star.

My MEARS RATING SYSTEM or a similar type Rating System is very important for The NFL Scouts, and the NFL Scouting Combine is the first time that “Accurate Numbers” are recorded on these players. It’s easy to say someone can run a 4.4 or a 4.3 in the Forty, but before an Accurate Hand-Held Timing by a Professional Scout or either by a slower, but Accurate Laser Timing is done, most Forty Times are less than Accurate. Technique is also very important and that is why College Football Players entering the NFL Draft will hire a Sports Trainer to train and teach them how to do a Vertical Jump, Pro-Agility Shuttle, and a Standing Broad Jump.

Quarterbacks, Offensive Linemen, and Kickers are always going to be Very Hard to Measure, because they do Extremely Poor at a Super Combine, so These Three Positions must Be Evaluated very carefully on film or in person and then their MEARS RATING will need to be Estimated and Given a MEARS RATING that they Deserve.

You can get a very good idea about a High School Football Player if he participates in a Legitimate Super Football Combine, but many High School Football Players do not get a chance to participate in a Super Combine. If a High School Football Player is being recruited by 40 D-1 Schools, then you have to assume that he is an outstanding Football Player, but how can you give this player a MEARS RATING if he does not have Valid Measurables? The answer is Very Simple! You either have to make-up or approximate his Measurables based upon his Game Film Evaluation or Actual Game Evaluation, giving him the Maximum Points on most of his  Measurables for his position.

LAMAR JACKSON LOOKS LIKE AN INCREDIBLE NFL QUARTERBACK!

Most High School and College Football Players don’t even know what their Speed and Strength Measurables are and you would think that they would, but they don’t. Many times, a High School or College Football Player will list his best Forty Time as a 4.8 and then twenty minutes later run a 4.6 or better. You must keep in mind that with a little instruction and training, most High School and College Football Players can improve on their Speed Measurables by Two and Three Tenth of a Second and on their Distance Measurables by as much as Six to Eight Inches.

Measurements are just numbers, but Many Times they tell us How Fast or Quick or Strong a Player Really is and can be a Great Help to NFL Scouts in their Personnel Department or to the Small Army of “Fake Media” and “Fake Draft Scouts” to Help Answer some questions about a Potential NFL Player.

On Thursday, before The Super Scouting Combine Begin, the Unofficial Department of Weights and Measures for These NFL Prospects gave The NFL Scouts and The Fake Scouts some Enlightening Information about some of The NFL Quarterback Prospects for The 2018 NFL Draft.

The Enlightening Information included that Louisville Heisman Trophy Quarterback, Lamar Jackson is Going to Play Quarterback in The NFL and he is not going to Play any other Position, including Wide Receiver like some of The Fake Scouts had Predicted.

The Pre-Combine Measurables Revealed that Lamar Jackson is almost 6-3 and he Weighed 216 Pounds, which is almost Identical to another Great Athletic Quarterback and Friend, Andy Dalton, who is a Fabulous NFL Quarterback and not a Wide Receiver. 

Jackson also checked in with an Official Wingspan of 77 5/8-Inches and 33 1/8-Inch arms. His hands are 9 1/2-Inches. The Top Five Quarterback Hand Sizes are Josh Allen – 10 1/8-Inches; Sam Darnold – 9 2/8-Inches; Lamar Jackson – 9 1/2-Inches; Baker Mayfield – 9 1/2-Inches; and Josh Rosen – 9 7/8-Inches.

Jackson is an Interesting NFL Prospect. His Incredible Athletic Ability is Totally Off The Charts and he can make all the throws, but being a Heisman Trophy Winner does not guarantee anything in The NFL.

In his last game on November 18, Against Syracuse, Jackson Completed 14 of 26 Passes for 270-Yards and Two Touchdowns. He also Rushed for 111-Yards and Two More Touchdowns, giving him 381-Yards of Total Offense and Four Touchdowns.

This is an Excellent Example of The Fabulous Dual-Threat of Jackson and his Outstanding Ability to Run The Football, out of The Pocket, when Needed. Jackson is Arguably the Best Dual-Threat Athletic Quarterback to Enter The NFL Draft Since Michael Vick as The #1 Selection in The 2001 NFL Draft.

In 2015, Jackson Passed for 1,840-Yards and 12 Touchdowns; then in 2016, he Passed for 3,543-Yards and 30 Touchdowns; and Lastly, in 2017, he Passed for 3,660-Yards and 27 Touchdowns.

The Lamar Jackson Rushing Stats are Completely Mind-Boggling: In 2015, Jackson had 960-Yards on 163 attempts and 11 Touchdowns. Then In 2016, he Rushed for 1,571-Yards and 21 Touchdowns; and then in 2017, he Rushed for 1,601-Yards and Scored 18 Touchdowns.

This Super NFL Quarterback Prospect had Career Totals of 9,043-Yards Passing and 69 Touchdowns; while Rushing for 4,132-Yards and a Career Total of Another Mind-Boggling 119 Touchdowns.

Nuff Said!
