At last. I will try to add a breakdown by each position, too. One thing I want to point out is that toward the end, we start dealing with issues of confidence. You may like some of the players in my 6th-round / 7th-round tiers better than I do. That’s okay– in many of these […]

Figured I’d give this one last swing before the draft. The Zone Reads Big Board will be out later today as well. I tried to include some brief writeups on each player here when I could.
We did it again. Another mock draft, taking into account the Combine and the first wave of free agent signings. Haven’t been posting in a while due to other life obligations, but if you follow Zone Reads on Twitter (@zonereads, naturally) you can get a good handle on what we’re up to these days. Without further […]
With the Saints struggling to the finish line in a dismal 2015, and the impending end of the Drew Brees era, I thought about going back and looking at how the team got to this point, what went wrong, and what they could have done differently (and can do differently in the future). I decided […]
Now, you can view every pick your team made, along with our grade of the player, in one handy spreadsheet. Don’t lose too much heart if we have a “N/A” grade next to your player. It simply means we didn’t have the chance to evaluate the player properly. Some of those players we’ve heard of; […]

Last night, vix and I mocked the first two rounds of the draft on Twitter, alternating picks. As a bonus for website readers and forum viewers, we did a third round privately. Here’s the thread with the picks and discussion. Feel free to discuss either here or there. If you’d like to see the Twitter […]
The most consistent thing I hear about Iowa defensive tackle Carl Davis is that his tape is inconsistent. Now, I am not calling these draft experts liars; they have more game tapes to watch and more knowledge of the game than myself. I can only go off of what I see, but what I see […]
I previously wrote that I wasn’t in love with the Jets offseason, but that it was decent enough. Like any other fan, I’ve been slowly coming around on that. Unlike most other fans, it has been due to watching 2013 film of these prospects.
Finishing up the NFC West grades, I’ll address the offseason performance of the top teams in the NFL’s most competitive division. Before I start, I’ll take a minute to comment on the year-long suspension of Cardinals ILB Daryl Washington. When on the field, he is one of the best players in the league at his […]
