6’1” | 239 lbs.

2015 stats:

33 REC, 355 YDS, 4 TD

Projection:

5th-6th Round

Scouting Report:

"Four-year starter who brings a great work ethic and leadership qualities to the table. Vitale's tape shows a multi-­dimensional player who may fit in with the changing face of hybrid football, but he doesn't really have an element of his game that he can hang his hat on as a true strength by NFL standards. Vitale can do many things for a team, but can he do them at a high level? Vitale's special teams play could be instrumental in making a team’s roster." - Lance Zierlein, NFL.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. 

It wasn't a great look for the Bears, who were coming out of the bye and looking to establish themselves as one of the NFC's best. 

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. 

Here were the most neat tweets from yesterday's loss: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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?
