2017 NFL Draft Super Seven Favorite Super Stars! By Max Emfinger Super Scout

SCOUTING NOTE: There are a lot of NFL Scouts that Rated and Ranked all of these College Football Players for the 2017 NFL Draft. Some of these Scouts had some Players Rated Higher than others, but most of them Still had most of the Top Football Players in the Top 32 Players in the First Round of the Draft.

Out of the First 32 First Round Selections, The Super Scout Selected 26 of 32 Players that were Drafted in the First Round. The Super Scout also Studied all of these Players for about Six Weeks and even more if you count the time when they came out of High School. After Evaluating all of the Top Players in the 2017 NFL Draft, I have Come-Up with my Favorite Super Seven, including DE Myles Garrett, DT Jonathan Allen, QB DeShaun Watson, RB Leonard Fournette, TE O.J. Howard, SS Jabrill Peppers, and TE David Njoku and I have included them, with Player Profiles, with my 2017 NFL Draft Fabulous Forty.

Draft PLAYER           HT WT 40 VJ SH SBJ BP College MEARS RATING
#1 DE Myles Garrett  6-4 272 4.64 41 4.44 127 33 Texas A&M 2,889 BROWNS

Image result for myles garrett photosIn any NFL draft, there are always NFL Teams that say they want to take the Best Player Available, Irregardless of Position. By that Rationale, Super Defensive End Freak Myles Garrett (#15) of Texas A&M is that #1 Overall Selection in the 2017 NFL Draft, because he is a “Super Combine Freak” and he is the best Football Player Available in the DraftGarrett has Blinding Speed off the Edge and is a Natural Pass-Rusher with rare Explosiveness. At the 2017 Scouting Combine, he Recorded a 41-Inch Vertical Jump and for a Player Weighing 272-Pounds, that Feat was Simply Mind-Boggling. He also has Incredible Strength as he Recorded 33-Reps of 225-Pounds on the Bench Press.

Garrett also has an Unbelievable Motor that will Overwhelm any Offensive Player Trying to Block Him. For the next level, Garrett fits any Defense. For the NFL, Garrett has Great Potential to be an Impact-Maker in the mold of a Von MillerGarrett is a Consensus #1 Draft Selection in the 2017 NFL Draft, with an Off the Charts 2,889 MEARS RATING, and he was Selected as the #1 Pick and #1 Overall Selection by the Cleveland Browns!

#17 DT Jonathan Allen 6-3 286 4.95 30 4.75 108 21 Alabama 2,792 REDSKINS

Image result for Jonathan allen PhotosJonathan Allen (93) was Without a Doubt, the #1 Defensive Tackle in the 2017 NFL Draft and he should have “Come-Off” the Draft Board much earlier than he did, but he was Taken in the 17th Overall Selection by the Washington Redskins. To Prove My Point, Allen Won the 2016 Chuck Bednarik Award and also the Bronco Nagurski Award as the Top Defender in the Country. In 2016, Allen was the Top Defender on the Top Defense in the Country as he Recorded 69 Tackles, including 16 Tackles For a Loss, and also Led Alabama with 10.5 Quarterback Sacks.

Allen repeated as All-SEC following an Outstanding Junior Season where he finished Second in the SEC with 12 Quarterback Sacks, including 14.5 Tackles For a LossAllen was a Very Special Player Coming out of High School in 2012, as he was Selected as The Gatorade High School Football Player of the Year in Virginia. Allen Contributed early in his Freshman Year for Alabama, playing regularly as a Freshman Reserve and then he became a Starter as a Sophomore and Recorded another 11.5 Tackles For a Loss and 5.5 Sacks.

#12 QB DeShaun Watson         6-2 221 4.61 32,5 4.31 117 Clemson  2,787 TEXANS

Image result for deshaun watson photosOne of my Favorite Quarterbacks for the Last Two Years was Clemson Super-Star Quarterback Deshaun Watson. I did not Select College Players of the Week in the 2016 Clemson National Championship Season, but back in their 2015 National Championship Finalist Season, Watson was Selected as one of my College Football Players of the Week after Seven WeeksWatson had a Chance to “Come-Out” Early after that 2015 Football Season, but he decided to Come-Back for his Senior Season and in that Memorable and History-Making 2016 Season, he led the Clemson Tigers to the National Championship over Alabama.

After these Two Incredible Seasons, every NFL Scout knew he that was going to be the Best Quarterback in the Scouting Combine, but everyone was still very interested in seeing just how Outstanding he really was and how great that he really might could become in the NFL.  All of the Quarterbacks had a chance to solidify themselves in the Draft at the Combine, but it was Watson who walked away from this 2017 NFL Scouting Combine with the Most Impressive Passing Performance. All 32 NFL Teams were at the Clemson Pro-Day and all of them were there to watch Watson and his Favorite Receiver, Mike Williams, in the Passing Drills and he did not Disappoint them as he threw 62 Passes and Completed 54 of those 62 Passes. A Super-Star Quarterback like Watson comes along only a few times in a Decade. Watson was Drafted by the Houston Texans as the 12th Overall Selection in the First Round of the 2017 Draft. 

#19 TE O.J. Howard             6-6 251 4.48 30 4.16 121 22 Alabama 2,767 JAGUARS

Image result for O.J. Howard PhotosI had O.J. Howard Rated as the #1 Tight End in High School and Now-Again I have him Rated as the #1 Tight End Coming-out of College. Howard (#88) of Alabama is probably the Most-Complete NFL Tight End Prospect to enter the NFL Draft in the past Decade. This is an Amazing Statement with others, including Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, Travis Kelce and Jordan Reed all making an Impressive Statement at the Tight End Position. Howard is an Outstanding Pass Catcher with a Rare Combination of Size, an Incredible 4.48 Forty and another Incredible 4.16 Pro-Shuttle, and with Unbelievable Athleticism.

The thing that sets O.J.Howard apart from all of the other Tight Ends is that he is a Very Well-Rounded Tight End. While many other Tight Ends are essentially Big Wide Receivers, Howard played as a Traditional Tight End at Alabama. Howard also played in Two NFL-Type National Championship Games that will lead his NFL Team to build their Passing Game-Plans around his Incredible Talents. Howard should have gone much earlier, but he was Drafted in the First Round and Overall 19th Selection by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

#4 RB Leonard Fournette                   6-1 240 4.47 28.5 4.28 120 LSU 2,770 JAGUARS

Image result for leonard fournette photosAt the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine,  Fournette Weighed-In at 240-Pounds and then he ran a 4.51 and a 4.52 Forty. After those Two Forties, all of the NFL Scouts and Analysis Scouts went Crazy in Trying to Decide who was the Best and Most-Wanted Running Back. Most of the NFL Scouts, including me, felt that Fournette would be the First Running Back to Come-Off of the NFL 2017 Draft Board in the  NFL Draft. I thought that Fournette just might be one of the Top 3 or 4 Draft Selections Overall, but that Team must be a Run-Dominated Offense and the Jacksonville Jaguars did Select him as the Overall 4th Selection in the First Round of the Draft.

Fournette (#7) also Showed-Up at the LSU Pro Day, about 12-Pounds Lighter than his 240-Pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine, and he was Totally Awesome in the Running Back Drills, and he was also Impressive in Pass-Catching Drills.  Fournette was my #1 Rated Running Back, coming-out of High School, and also my #1 Running Back coming-out of College. A Running Back like Fournette comes along, maybe once in a DecadeI have been watching Fournette for Three Years at LSU and he is just an Unbelievable Super Freak at Running Back. There have been SEC Games that he was Never Really Stopped and when he was “ON”, LSU Never LostFournette will be an Instant Starter for the Lucky NFL Team that Gets him and the Winner was the Jacksonville Jaguars

#25 SS Jabrill Peppers      5-11 213 4.43 35.5 4.23 127 19 Michigan  2,761 BROWNS

Image result for jabrill peppers photosJabrill Peppers (#5) is a Super Freak on Defense at Any Position that he is asked to play. After being Selected as the Defensive Player of the Year in 2013 by USA Today, Peppers arrived on the Michigan Campus with Some Unbelievable Hype,  as being one  of the Most Sought-After Recruits in the 2014 Recruiting Class. In 2014, Peppers Played Cornerback and then in 2015, he Played Safety. Then in 2016, he was moved to Outside Linebacker. So if Peppers is that Great Defensive Player who has played Three Different Positions in Three Different Years, then he must be a Great Defensive Player, so what is the Deal with this Defensive Super-Star? If Peppers is a Super-Star Player who can Excel at Three Different Positions on the Football Field, then we are looking at a Player, who is a Super Athlete, that we have never seen, except maybe once in a Decade.

Most of the NFL Teams Really like Peppers because of his Versatility and Great Athleticism and so at the 2017 Scouting Combine, Peppers Worked-Out with the Linebackers on Sunday and then the Defensive Backs on Monday. His 4.46 Forty was the Best Time for a Linebacker since The 2000 Scouting Combine, but he was Drafted as a Strong Safety by the Cleveland Browns as the 25th Overall Selection of the First Round in the 2017 NFL Draft.

#14 TE David Njoku                   6-4 246 4.59 40 4.34 133 21 Miami   2,747 BROWNS

Image result for David Njoku PhotosSuper Tight End David Njoku (#86) was a National High School High Jump Champion with a Seven-Foot Best Jump, so all of the NFL Scouts were aware that he is an Athletic Freak and how he can Catch a lot of Footballs that other Tight Ends would not be able to make. He only had Eight Dropped Footballs over the last two seasons for a Drop-Rate of only 11 Per-cent. Njoku has Unbelievable Freaky Athleticism for the Tight End Position.

Njoku is an Exceptional Playmaker and he also has a Tremendous Yards-Per-Catch Average. At the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine, Njoku Turned Heads of a lot of NFL Scouts when he Recorded some Incredible Speed Measurables, including a Fabulous  40-Inch Vertical Jump, an Incredible 133-Inch Standing Broad Jump, and an Impressive 4.34 Pro-Shuttle. He also Ran a 4.59 Forty, while Weighing-In at 246-Pounds.

About maxemfingerrecruiting

My mission and goal is to search for that hidden high school football talent that has not been found yet. I then evaluate him and try to help him to get some publicity. In 2003, 2004, 2005. and 2006, I hosted my Annual 7on7 National Championship. My goal was to get great athletes to one area where I could evaluate them and then help them with college coaches. The only drawback was that college coaches wanted to see the hidden gems in a game-type highlight film and so the college coaches suggested to me that I host a real All-American Bowl Game so that they could view these talented players in a highlight film, playing against other talented players. It's noted that the NCAA doesn't allow the college coaches to attend All-American Games or practices and so the Game Film is a great tool for the college coaches. In 2005, I hosted my 1st Annual All-American Bowl Game. In nine games in nine years, my wife and I have helped 549 HS football players to get a scholarship that came to our first Bowl Game practice without a single scholarship offer. This also does not count over 1,000 players who we have helped that did not play in our game, including over 100 players in the 2010 Recruiting Season. My Super Elite Top Gun Camp idealogy, is of course, to get as many Top Football Players to a Top Gun Camp so that all of my coaches and I can evaluate them, rate them, rank them, and promote them. There will always be "Diamonds in the Rough" to be found. My First Annual Max Emfinger's Super Elite Top Gun Camp was in July of 2010. The Camp was amazing and loaded with unknown and known talent. Many of them were invited to play in our 2011 All-American Bowl Game Classic. In 2007, in my 3rd Annual All-American Bowl Game, a player by the name of Kareem Jackson came to our first Monday practice, without a single scholarship offer. Jackson decided to come out early and he became a #1 Draft Choice in the 2010 NFL Draft for the Houston Texans.
