Projection:

1st Round

Scouting Report:

"Where He Wins: Highly competitive corner despite his size 5’10/195 lbs. Plays with confidence at the line of scrimmage or off, and wants to attack the catch point. Seems aware of the football as well as his receiver/assignment. Can limit yards after the catch due to his tackling skills, and is not just a force player on the outside on runs." - Josh Norris, Rotoworld.com

Neat Tweets: The reaction from a not-so-neat loss in Miami

Neat Tweets: The reaction from a not-so-neat loss in Miami

The Bears dropped a heartbreaker yesterday, losing in OT to Brock Osweiler and the Dolphins.

BearsTwitter, if you can believe it, wasn't pleased. The game featured a weird mix of existential dread and a humerous understanding that Brocktober is a mystical force that cannot fully be explained.

Week 7 NFL Power Rankings: Outside the top, no clear picture yet

Week 7 NFL Power Rankings: Outside the top, no clear picture yet

Last night's 43-40 game between the Patriots and Chiefs said more about the NFL than it did either team playing in it. 

Through the first seven weeks, there are pretty clearly three very good NFL teams: the Rams, the Pats, and the Chiefs. 

After that? Who knows. The Chargers look strong, but have looked strong for years -- and have what to show for it? After a good start, the Jaguars have looked actively terrible. The Steelers are rounding into form and yet still find themselves in third place. All three of the NFC East's contenders are sitting at .500 or barely better. 

How'd your probably-mediocre team do in our Power Rankings this week?
