Futures: Abbrederis vs. Roby

Futures: Oklahoma State CB Justin Gilbert

Futures: Baylor RB Lache Seastrunk

As dazzling as Seastrunk is –- and I see the potential for him to dazzle in the NFL –- what he’ll need to do to earn those opportunities are the boring things that make his game efficient as well as productive.

Futures: UNC TE Eric Ebron

Futures: Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel

Johnny Manziel is intuitive, improvisational, daring, and he has the prerequisite physical skills to start in the NFL. But he can have a coach shouting from the sideline, "No, no, no, ... No!" as much as “No, no, no ... Yes, yes, yes, yes!!!"
