Led by former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Ryan Lindley, his quarterbacks coach throughout the pre-draft process, Trubisky completed 54 of 63 passes in a crisp workout that showcased his arm strength, accuracy and mobility. Four of Trubisky’s nine incompletions were drops, three of which were catchable but thrown behind the targets. The other five incompletions were overthrown. One was on a short pass to a running back in the flat, two came on intermediate wheel routes and two were on deep passes.
I simulated this like an actual draft. I completed this over three days. The first day I focused just on round one, looking at each teams' needs and depth charts intensely, looking at scheme fits, and picking them one by one in order (no skipping ahead!). The next day, I did rounds two and three. The final day was an exhausting rounds four through seven. Everything was done without prior knowledge of who would be picked next so I could not set myself up, so to speak. Alright, that's enough blabbering. Let's get on with this!
The Seahawks’ stated off-season goal of adding depth and competition at linebacker is continuing as it was reported Tuesday night that the team will get a visit from free agent Gerald Hodges, who played last season with the 49ers and began his career with the Vikings. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Hodges will visit on Wednesday.
Boldin has been a key addition to every wide receiving corps he’s joined since he first entered the NFL 15 years ago. In an incredible career, Boldin has 1,076 receptions for 13,779 receiving yards and 82 touchdowns, but he remains highly productive even as he approaches his late thirties. Even last year, he put up 8 touchdowns for the Detroit Lions, his first season in their offense and his highest touchdown total since 2008.
Matt Barrows is reporting Tiller is visiting with the Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday. Tiller spent the past three seasons with the 49ers, first signing to the practice squad in October 2014. He was promoted to the active roster for one game that season. After a strong 2015 training camp and preseason, he opened the season on the practice squad, but was promoted to the active roster after Week 4. He started seven games and appeared in five more that season. In 2016, he started seven games, and appeared in eight more.
Twitter has certainly changed the media. If a player sees something he doesn’t like or isn’t true, he can just tweet it out directly fans. That’s what’s happening with new Chiefs defensive lineman Bennie Logan and Yahoo Sports reporter Charles Robinson.
