Carson Wentz (QB), North Dakota State

6’5” | 237 lbs.

2015 stats:

1,651 YDS, 62.5 CMP%, 17 TD, 4 INT, 152.3 QBR

Projection:

1st Round

Scouting Report:

"Where He Wins: Unafraid to throw to receivers in contested, one on one matchups downfield, giving them an opportunity to make a play on the ball. Displays great placement on sideline throws. Has plenty of arm to make the longest of throws. Can get “stuck in the mud” at times with his base and can be hesitant to throw to receivers before their breaks, but also shows mobility when necessary." - Josh Norris, Rotoworld.com

Khalil Mack to undergo additional tests on right ankle this week

Khalil Mack to undergo additional tests on right ankle this week

My kingdom for a healthy right ankle. 

After Khalil Mack hurt his ankle during the Bears' 31-28 loss to Miami last Sunday, the team will reportedly send Mack for further testing: 

While we still don't know exactly what this entails, it's obviously not great news. Mack's been the leader of a defense that ranks as one of -- if not the -- NFL's best. He leads the team in sacks (5) -- for which he's also in the top-10 of all defensive players in the NFL-- and forced fumbles (4). 

And who just so happens to be coming to Soldier Field next Sunday? Tom Brady! Rob Gronkowski! A Patriots team that has succeeded for YEARS on exploiting bad linebacker matchups! Terrific.
