Filmroom and Draft Expert
DERRIK KLASSEN is from the Central Valley of California, though he grew up near Tampa Bay, Florida. Covering the NFL draft gave him his start but studying the NFL itself has taken precedent. He has been published at SB Nation and Bleacher Report, and has worked for Optimum Scouting, do- ing charting and scouting reports for their NFL Draft Guide.
Over at TwoQBs.com, our film guy Derrik Klassen is writing a series looking at this year's five first-round quarterbacks and how they fit the schemes of their new teams. You'll find a number of film clips comparing these quarterbacks' college schemes to the schemes of their new offensive coordinators in the pros. We'll post more of the links here as they are posted on TwoQBs.com.
