From Dave Te; Rosen and this Week's Draft Faves

nflscouting : 9/10/2017 11:27 am
Many scouts seem to think UCLA's Josh Rosen has an authority issue. Mora is coddling him, as he is an athletic talent but teammates give you the "rolling eyes" when you try to get their opinions. He's a brash kid, much like McNown was coming out of UCLA, but others see a lot of Ryan Leaf temper when the kid is challenged.
Now Darnold is the poster child for a reason, as he is this year's version of Manning while Rosen takes on the Ryan Leaf role. Sure, 4 QBs will be off the board in round one, but I still feel that Mississippi State's Nick Fitzgerald is going to be the best pro. Yesterday - 5 TDs, 3 throwing, giving him 48 TDs in 14 starts since stepping in for Zac Prescott.
IN TOWN ALERT-more & more, scouts are flocking to Fordham to see their RB Edmunds. Some are even calling Chase a darkhorse late first round talent.
SECOND CHANCE/MAKING THE MOST OF IT-5 star Notre Dame recruit Max Redfield sat out last year after the Irish booted him. He was inconsistent as a free safety, but seems to have found a home in Indiana (PA), posting 18 tackles in 2 games so far. On 10 targets, he's allowed 1 catch for 4 yards.
GIANTS GLASS SLIPPER-strongside linebacker Tremaine Edmunds-Virginia Tech keeps rising up on draft boards. He's 6:04, 239 with 4.52 speed. Yesterday's performance was typical-14 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 4 TFLs, a forced fumble & 2 pressures. Former NFL TE FErrell Edmunds' baby boy will enter the 2018 draft.
THE NEXT GREAT OFFENSIVE TACKLE-Martinas Rankins-Mississippi State-the 6:05, 319-pound blocker had his second double-digit blocking performance yesterday & in 2 games, has 28 knockdowns, 5 TD-resulting blocks & has yet to allow a tackle or sack. One of the reasons QB Nick Fitzgerald has been able to stay upright so far.

For those that want to see what others in the industry say about Rosen & his attitude, google has it all;
Great stuff Dave. Keep it coming.

Lay off that moonshine down south...

....your promotion of Fitzgerald is a tad over the top at this point. I believe you compared him to Favre in another post, when he is closer to Tebow at this juncture. He may turn out to be a true prospect, but right now he is a runner with terrible accuracy. Good thing he has Willie Roaf blocking for him...hyperbole maybe?

I think our next running back should be SDSU's Rashad Penny... he had himself a game vs ASU. Not easy to replace the NCAA's all-time leading rusher, but he may be even better than Pumphrey.
Notre Dame OT

I had read that ND OT McGlinchey was projected to be a high 1st round next year maybe top 10. I didn't watch the whole game against Georgia last night but a few times he got abused by the pass rusher. Speed rusher Bellamy ran around him like a statue (no Flowers comparison please). I don't know if Bellamy is considered special but he knockd McClinchey down a few pegs last night.
