The Matriculator and his collection of the greatest scouts in America are attending the 2019 NFL Draft.

Philip Rivers-QB Chargers

The end of a great quarterback era is coming to a close.  The new breed has a much broader skill set and is capable of winning games that Tom Brady and Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning never could.  Russell Wilson has been amazing behind a bad offensive line.  Lamar Jackson, Pat Mahomes and Deshaun Watson are on another level from the old, immobile tosser. We can soon add Ben Roethlisberger to the list of former greats and Matt Ryan has never been much above average except for his outlier 2016 season.  Rodgers will have to wait as he still has games where he looks like the old Rodgers.  Cam Newton may never make it back and father time will catch Drew Brees at some point. Kirk Cousins, Jimmy Garoppolo and Dak Prescott are all in the ball park as Tier 1 tossers now with Kyler Murray showing the potential to be a future number one.  Carson Wentz?  That hype train has slowed dramtically.

Brian Flores- HC, Dolphins

The Dolphins have the worst talent we've ever seen at the NFL level.  They don't have back-ups starting at most positions and yet they've won three games, most recently beating the playoff hungry Eagles.  Flores might be the NFL's next greeat coach and gives the Dolphins some semblence of a hope for the future.

Dwayne Haskins- QB, Redskins

Haskins hasn't looked remotely serviceable as an NFL tosser. It's early, but this somehow seems poetic justice for a team with a Jewish owner who continues to cling to a racially offensive mascot.

Jordan Wilkins- RB, Colts

Wilkins once again proved he's an every down back this week, but the Colts won't commit to him.We're not sure what part of his career 5.6 YPC average or 88% catch rate they don't like.
Noah Fant- TE, Broncos thumb_side_06.png
We were one of the few sites to have Noah Fant ahead of TJ Hockenson at tight end, though we had them within ten spots of each other. Through 9 games they have both been excellent (for rookie tight ends) posting nearly identical stats with Fant at 23-37 (62%), 300 yards and 2 TDs and Hockenson at 25-44 (57%), 343 and 2 TDs.

Pearls of wisdom from the doctor.

If high school rankings, talking shit, posing for the camera and the underwear olympics are the test, then Rashan Gary gets an A+.  If the test is playing a sport called football, he's a B. One of the years most overrated prospects, he's currently in everyone's top 10 but watch him plummet after this post.
