A very rough and enraged style of play would describe the disposition of former Oklahoma OL Cody Ford. Ford recovered nicely from early career injury issues to earn first-team All-Big 12 honors in 2018. We take a look at his approach in our video spotlight. Some may contend that he was the most dominant player on Oklahoma's offense in 2018.
The 2018 Big Ten's Defensive Player of the Year was a consensus All-American a year after being named a first-team All-Big Ten selection. He was named a back-to-back Academic All-Big Ten performer. We spotlighted the fact that his leadership within the program was verified when he became just the second non-senior to be elected captain during the Jim Harbaugh-era. His father, Devin, Sr., was a first-round draft pick of the Atlanta Falcons in the 1995 NFL Draft after starring at Florida State.
2017 Outland Trophy Award winner Ed Oliver tallied five quarterback sacks and 22 tackles for loss during his sophomore campaign. While his junior year didn't quite match up, we did spotlight his disruptive nature early in September of 2018. For his career, he totaled 53 tackles for loss in a largely dominant three-year stretch. DraftNasty Magazine goes inside the game of the 2017 AAC Defensive Player of the Year.
Former Southern Miss defensive back Tarvarius Moore went from an unheralded first-year starter to third round pick by the San Francisco 49ers in the 2018 NFL Draft (95th overall). His combination of speed (4.3, 40-yd) and movement ability could eventually land him a spot as a cover safety in the team's schemes. It wouldn't be out of the question for them to even give him time at the cornerback spot. We go deep inside his game in our video spotlight on the former Golden Eagle.
Former Memphis wide receiver Anthony Miller was ranked 43rd overall on DraftNasty's 2018 Big Board. The Chicago Bears took him with the 51st overall pick (2nd Round) of the 2018 NFL Draft. The second-team All-American went over the 1,400-yard mark in 2017 (1,462) after topping the 1,200-yard mark as a junior. His ability to play in the slot or on the outside made him one of the draft's most attractive targets.
Former Louisville QB Lamar Jackson accounted for 119 touchdowns in back-to-back ACC Offensive Player of the Year seasons (2016-17). Along the way, the 2016 Heisman Trophy winner produced over 5,000 yards in each of his final two seasons. We go deep inside his game in our video spotlight.
Former UCF linebacker Shaquem Griffin posted 175 tackles, 18.5 quarterback sacks, 33.5 tackles for losses, four forced fumbles, two interceptions, 11 pass break-ups and one fumble return for touchdown in his career. The 2016 AAC Defensive Player of the Year has a non-stop approach that includes 4.38 speed at 227 pounds. We take a deep dive inside his game after catching up with him during the week of the 2018 Reese's Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama.
Moore quietly went over the 1,000-yard mark in each of the last two seasons for the Tigers. He and fellow wide receiver Emanuel Hall were a big reason Missouri quarterback Drew Lock broke the single-season record for touchdown passes in the SEC. In DraftNasty's sit down with Moore at the 2018 Senior Bowl, he talked about his angry run after the catch approach, route running and his overall mentality towards the game.
In Part II of McCutcheon's Climb, we go inside the training of former Tuskegee defensive back Jonah McCutcheon during his pre-draft training at D1 Mobile in Mobile, Alabama. His trainers -Rich Myers and Chris McNair- talk about his room for improvement. In addition, we go in the film room with the three-time All-SIAC and former BOXTOROW All-American to view the game through his lenses.
Former Tuskegee defensive back Jonah McCutcheon finished his career with 14 interceptions and was a three-time 1st Team All-SIAC choice. McCutcheon was named a 2015 BOXTOROW All-American after posting seven interceptions. He added to his career totals with an interception in the 2017 FCS Bowl in Daytona Beach, Florida. In Part I of his diary with DraftNasty, he begins to give a preview of how he wins on the field.
