Bryan Edwards – University of South Carolina – 6’3” 212 lbs. – November 13, 1998 (21 years old)

  • Tall receiver who plays bigger than his 212 weigh in. 
  • Likely goes higher in the draft if he doesn’t break his foot while preparing for the combine. 
  • Doesn’t waste time, gets off the line quickly.
  • Good breaks inside and out.
  • Seems comfortable with press coverage.
  • Uses hard jab step to throw off DBs at the line. Keeps them guessing throughout the game.
  • Does a good job of selling the route and timing his breaks. 
  • Has the long speed to maintain separation.

B_Don and Donkey Teeth are joined by Al_FF_Red, formerly known as Boof, to go over Donkey’s dynasty rankings. DT walks us through his ranking process and we ask him about the general construction of his top 20. 

We dig into his Joe Mixon ranking/hatred as both B_Don and Boof are all in on Mixy. We then ask DT about his top 20 ranking of Julio Jones and if he still belongs in that range at this point in his career. B_Don then asks Boof and DT to explain the Deebo Samuel infatuation.

As the guys wrap up, we look at some late ranked players in Alshon, Kyle Rudolph, Jalen Hurts, Nick Foles, and Darren Fells (who B_Don only brings up to plug Kahale Warring).

B_Don and Donkey Teeth are back with another podcast episode to discuss DT’s dynasty QB and TE rankings. They start with the QB position and discuss their different tendencies toward more rush heavy or pass heavy QBs in dynasty. Additionally, the guys talk their appetite for starting a dynasty roster with an elite QB and an elite TE, and which players would be worth taking early. 

B_Don brings up a few top 10 dynasty QBs for DT that they have differing opinions about their future. Starting with Kyler jumping up to 3, Josh Allen coming in at 6, and then Baker even being in the top 10 QBs. After we go through those 3, DT admits his love for the ‘stache while B_Don is less enamored with facial hair.  

At TE, we start with a discussion about whether Kittle belongs in his own tier as the sole elite dynasty TE. We check in on the second tier and discuss DT’s boy Waller and why he has him over Mark Andrews. Overall, the duo talk about the TE tiers and how they could be arranged. We go on to discuss the Bucs, Rams, and Jets TE situations, with varying opinions on where those TEs should fit in the rankings.

Donkey Teeth and B_Don reconvene to discuss DT’s dynasty RB ranks. Of course, any discussion with Donkey about running backs has to include some Kerryon Johnson. 

The guys are split on a number of running backs including Joe Mixon, Melvin Gordon, and Austin Ekeler. DT gives us his case for Jonathan Taylor as a top 10 dynasty RB, and why he hates Marlon Mack. 

We take a look at the Cardinals situation for this year and beyond before jumping into some late round guys and 2019 rookies that people may be ready to throw into the garbage pile. Stay tuned for the end as DT has an exciting announcement (that he almost forgot) about a new platform coming to Razzball Football!

B_Don and Donkey Teeth are back to review DT’s dynasty WR rankings. The guys begin the show by discussing some shows that they’ve been watching, and make some recommendations to pass the time. Side note: Grey’s wardrobe trend has him somewhere in between Elvis Costello, Cam Newton, and The Tiger King.  

After the quarantine talk, we get into Donkey’s WR rankings (links below). DT walks us through is ranking process and how he values some of the various dynasty attributes (talent, situation, league format, etc.). B_Don asks DT about the TB duo of Evans and Godwin, and whether they can sustain this type of production from 2019. I ask why DT hates Juju and how to handle a couple of third year WRs in Michael Gallup and Calvin Ridley. 

 

1-20 Dynasty WRs

21-40 Dynasty WRs

41-60 Dynasty WRs

61-80 Dynasty WRs

Cam Akers – Florida St. – 5’10” 217 lbs. – 6/22/99 (20 years old)

Fair warning up front, I’m a ‘Noles fan. And yes, it’s been a terrible few years. For the duration of Akers time at FSU, the Seminoles were a mess from scheme to play calling to the offensive line, and just general motivation. However, Akers was one of the few bright spots of these teams. He doesn’t have the highest top end speed or the best acceleration, but he brings a combination of balanced running with explosive play ability along with a natural receiving ability. Donkey Teeth recently ranked Akers #18 overall in his top 20 dynasty running back rankings and Alfred ranked him #4 among rookie running backs in his post combine running back rankings. Here’s what I saw from Akers in my film review:

J.K. Dobbins – Ohio State – 5’9″ 209 lbs. – 21 Years Old (12/17/98)

Dobbins is a big play waiting to happen. He presents a combination of interior and exterior running ability with clear promise in his receiving ability.

  • Dobbins ran a decent mix of looks ranging from run pass option to traditional power running. 
  • Both the top end speed and acceleration are excellent. I don’t care that he didn’t run the 40 at the combine. Both, his acceleration and speed, are clearly evident. The questions with Dobbins has nothing to do with either. 
  • Along with the acceleration, Dobbins can stop and go on a dime whether it be laterally in a cut or straight line stop and go.

Acceleration to hit the hole and break through the LB and safety merging. Then, the jets to take it to the house. Giddy up!
Side note: I could’ve chosen any number of many clips to show you his breakaway speed. He’s done it against every level of opponent.

Taylor comes into the draft after a college career where he averaged 308 carries and 2,058 yards per season. He’s on the more physical side of running styles and has developed into a more complete back.

  • Power running scheme at Wisconsin with a terrific O line. Taylor utilizes his strong line and is a patient running back. He will wait for his O line rather than simply running head first into battle where the play is designed.
  • Lateral quickness as a whole is average. In short area lateral moves, he showed the ability to maintain, or get back up to speed quickly. However, in larger jump cuts, he slows more than other backs and gives defenders time to catch up.
  • He utilizes a stiff arm with those short area lateral moves to break free or get the defender off balance.
  • While Taylor doesn’t have the acceleration of other backs in this class, his initial burst is strong. It’s something I’d equate to a basketball player with a good first step.

Football season is ov…never ends! Next up is the combine (2/24-3/2) where grown men watch other grown men work out. Then, we get free agency (3/18) where billion dollar entities tell us they don’t have any money to spend. Finally, we’ll get to the draft (4/23-4/25) where talented 20+ year olds who were earning millions for a university will finally make some money for themselves.
