Lael Collins Scouting Report

La’el Collins OT LSU #70
Ht: 6’5″
Wt: 315

Overview: Collins’ physical build makes him look like a better fit at guard, and he may end up there. However, he still moves well enough to play tackle and his nasty demeanor will endear him to teams interested in developing a physical running game.

Cameron Erving Scouting Report

Cameron Erving OT Florida State #75
Ht: 6’6″
Wt: 310

Overview: Erving is a converted defense tackle who displays the athleticism necessary to excel, but is still developing the fundamentals necessary to succeed in the NFL. His footwork and balance are inconsistent and he’s often late to react, further limiting his ability in pass-protection. He needs to show significant development before he can be viewed a solid starter at the next level.

Donovan Smith Scouting Report

Donovan Smith OT Penn State #76
Ht: 6’5″
Wt: 335

Overview: Smith is raw, and rarely dominates his top competition, but he has the size and strength to recover and shows enough athleticism and flexibility to give him a very high ceiling if he can iron out his technique. He reminds me of Bengals right tackle Andre Smith, but won’t approach Smith’s draft status until he refines his fundamentals and dominates on a more consistent basis.

Eddie Lacy Injury Concerns Return


Coming out of college, just about every team thought highly of Eddie Lacy’s talent. However, people were scared off a little bit because of his injury history. Some people might look at it as just having bad luck, but now he has suffered another concussion in as many years at the NFL level. People in fantasy football are already concerned about how this will effect his entire year.

Green Bay had to deal with quite a few different injuries last year to key players. For the most part, Lacy was able to return nicely after suffering a concussion early on in the year. It helped that the bye week for Green Bay came when it did, but Lacey was only forced to miss about 1.5 games total. Afterwards, he quickly became a pretty big force in fantasy football.

There were some in fantasy football who thought he might suffer from a sophomore slump because of his low yards per carry. They do not think that he would suffer yet another injury, but now the concussion issue is a pretty big one for the running back. Green Bay is going to be cautiously optimistic about everything, but they also want to make sure that he does not do more damage to his head in general.

If no one has pounced on James Starks just yet, he is someone who should be picked up sooner rather than later as a handcuff at running back. He is capable of having success out there on the field in fantasy football, especially if he is given the opportunity to start for a few games. Lacy should be able to get back on the field since the concussion does not seem to be a very serious one at this time. However, it does make people think of little bit about the running back going forward. He needs to figure something out, or at least try to have someone better luck with hard hits to the head.

Overview: Scherff doesn’t stand out as one of the athletic freaks that generally land in the top 10, but his fundamentals and elite strength make him one of the best lineman and safest all-around prospects in this draft class.
