Every NFL team's most likely future Hall of Famer: Tom Brady, Aaron Donald among 17 'locks'

  Every NFL team's most likely future Hall of Famer: Tom Brady, Aaron Donald among 17 'locks' Several prominent players made the cut, but a notable former league MVP did notUsing my interpretation of some of the unspoken criteria used when determining who gets into the Hall of Fame, I came up with a list of each NFL team's current player who has the best shot at being enshrined in Canton once their career is over. Here is the criteria I used when selecting the most likely players on each NFL team that could be considered a "lock" if their careers ended today.

NFL Combine: Please Don't Ever Get Rid of the 40-Yard Dash

  NFL Combine: Please Don't Ever Get Rid of the 40-Yard Dash Danile Jeremiah says the 40 could be obsolete in the next few years. That's true. They should still keep running it.We’re about 2-3 years away from personnel departments not caring about 40 times. The game GPS data is going to replace it. Who cares what he ran in the 40, I know exactly how fast he ran in game conditions & I have 5 years of data for context.

2021 NFL schedule: Release expected in May with 17 games, possible Monday playoff game, per reports

  2021 NFL schedule: Release expected in May with 17 games, possible Monday playoff game, per reports When is the 2021 NFL schedule going to be released? Find out hereBefore last year, the NFL generally released the schedule in April, but due to the pandemic, the release got pushed back to May, and apparently, the league must have liked how things worked out since it's planning a May release for the second straight year.

Robert Jones, OT a group of baseball players that are standing in the snow: Despite their run of solid play down the stretch something still seems missing from the Baltimore Ravens, and in particular their passing game. Lamar Jackson seems hesitant to push the ball downfield for some reason, and whether that is due to a lack of confidence or something else, helping the downfield passing game should be a priority for the Ravens this draft season.  They'll get that help with Rashod Bateman. While many were watching the Golden Gophers two seasons ago for Tyler Johnson, Bateman is the cleaner NFL prospect. He has a variety of route-running skills and handles the downfield passing elements of the position quite well. He'd be an ideal fit in Baltimore's passing attack. © Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports Despite their run of solid play down the stretch something still seems missing from the Baltimore Ravens, and in particular their passing game.

Jaylen Waddle prefers Mac Jones over Tua Tagovailoa, too

  Jaylen Waddle prefers Mac Jones over Tua Tagovailoa, too Earlier in the predraft process, a report from MMQB's Albert Breer made waves, stating that Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith told an NFL team at the Senior Bowl that he would take Mac Jones over Tua Tagovailoa at quarterback. Turns out, he's not alone. Fellow Crimson…Tua or Mac?

Earnest Brown IV, DE Paddy Fisher, ILB Greg Newsome II, CB Rashawn Slater, OT a group of baseball players playing a game of football: I wrote prior to the season that Chazz Surratt was perhaps one of my favorite storylines entering the 2020 college campaign. Surratt was recruited as a quarterback and as a redshirt freshman in 2017 he made seven starts for the Tar Heels, throwing for 1,342 yards and eight touchdowns. But he appeared in just one game at quarterback in 2018, and after that season he switched to linebacker. In 2019, his first season as a ‘backer? He was named a First-Team All-ACC selection and was a runner-up for ACC Defensive Player of the Year. His 115 tackles led the team and were second in the conference.  With an abbreviated schedule Surratt could not top those 2019 numbers, but he came close. Where he had 6.5 sacks in the 2019 season, Surratt posted six in just 11 games. He also tallied 91 tackles, falling shy of the number posted a year ago. His athleticism and movement skills might make him the model linebacker for today's NFL. © Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports I wrote prior to the season that Chazz Surratt was perhaps one of my favorite storylines entering the 2020 college campaign.

NFL pro days schedule 2021: Everything to know about pre-draft workouts without the NFL Combine

  NFL pro days schedule 2021: Everything to know about pre-draft workouts without the NFL Combine The NFL Scouting Combine was canceled in 2021. Instead, player evaluations will take place over the course of five weeks in March and April as colleges hold pro days for their top NFL Draft prospects. Here's a complete schedule of the workouts, how to watch them on TV and everything else to know.For teams wanting a closer look at the players whom they are considering drafting in late April, they would need to attend those specific pro days around the nation. The NFL also has limited all teams to having no more than three combined representatives from their front-office, scouting and coaching staffs at each pro day.

But they could not protect him.  So it makes a great deal of sense to find someone who can. Even though a few recent wins have the Bengals sliding down a few spots in the draft, with the way the board falls they still see the top tackle in this class drop into their lap. They should run to the podium in this scenario. Nothing has changed. Run to the podium Cincinnati, now you can protect your young quarterback. © Mark J.
