He is not even listed as one of the top 19 remaining running backs left to be drafted today by Bleacher Report.   Not even listed.  Just throwing darts now it appears.  I would be happy with a flyer on Vorhees and calling it a day.

PFF has him as the 213th prospect. Brugler has him as a 6th rounder.

Evan Hull Can No Longer Be Ignored After Senior Bowl

 

https://thedraftnetwork.com/evan-hull-nfl-draft-senior-bowl/

 

...At Senior Bowl practices all week, the Northwestern product showed off his dual-threat abilities against some of the best defenders in his draft class. Hull spent all week stringing together explosive runs in team drills along with some strong reps in one-on-ones against linebackers in both pass-catching and pass-protection drills.

 

When game time rolled around on Saturday, Hull led all players in the exhibition with 74 rushing yards on just 10 carries—including a 24-yard run on the first play of the game—and added two catches for 11 yards.

 

For teams looking to take a running back that can contribute as an explosive runner with good field vision and a strong pass-catcher with good hands and route-running ability, Evan Hull could be their guy. Taking into account his solid work in pass protection and special teams contributions in Mobile as well, the Northwestern product did a nice job raising his draft stock at this year’s Senior Bowl.

Nice write up but it looks like he didn’t shoot up the draft boards.

I always look at current roster and what players need to be replaced with Draft picks. Last 2 days we upgraded 3 weak starting spots. Looking at what we have will tell us what direction it should take tomorrow.

 

Starting RG-Will Fries-  Hopefully Zavalla with next pick,Fries is an ok backup IL. May have to sign Free Agent Dalton Risner

Swing Tackle-C.O'Donnell/J.Murray- We need 2 swing Tackles as neither of these 2 has taken an NFL snap, 1 will come tomorrow

Center-We likely let Pinter and French battle it out but could draft a Center late

TE-We are set 7 deep

WR- We look set with MPJ,Pierce,Downs,Mckenzie,Dulin,Streichen as top 6, maybe a late flyer on a wr with size

QB-Set

RB-JT,Moss,Evans,Jackson,Funk so a late pick on a 3rd down back would make sense.

DE-Paye,Dayo,Ebukan,Lewis all locks,rest Cline,Berry,Kareem can lose a spot to a DE drafted

DT-Buckner,Stewart,Bryan,Johnson all locks, Agim and Williams likely on bubble so a DT could be drafted but doubtful

LB-Leonard,Speed,Franklin,Stuart,Domann all locks but 1 spot open with McGrone,Rhyne,Olubi so a LB pick coming

CB-Moore,Rodgers,Brents,Flowers,Brown all locked 1 open spot for Tolliver,Baker,Vereen and a day 3 draft pick

S-Blackmon,Thomas,Cross all locked last spot open for draft pick to battle Denbow,Dabo and Black

P-Set

K-Set

 

so tomorrow- 1 G,   1T,  1 WR  ,1RB  ,1DE  ,1LB ,1CB ,1 S

 

Targets

Zavalla,Saldiveri-G

Jones,Freeland-T

Iosivas,Boutee-WR

Vaughn,Hull-RB

Fehoko,Wooden-DE

To'o to'o,Papoe-LB

Ringo,Rush-CB

Tice,Johnson-S

Ringo,Rush-CB

 

Freeland ,Hull,Rush.....checking the boxes....

Joey Fisher must be wondering what he's done wrong......thought he would have gone a while ago!

Even though we drafted Freeland, I'd still take him in the 6th. Our tackles would be elite all the way through. Would be a strength on the O-Line.

You guys ready?

Would anyone be mad if we drafted Cory Trice with our 6th rounder and tripled up on CB? I think that could be an option.

I had not even realized he was still not picked. Wow! I would pick him.

Well, this is a player I've never heard of... Titus Leo, EDGE, Wagner

Looks like a PS EDGE. From what I can see he's pretty explosive, but tight hipped and will have a huge jump in competition.

    • I agree. Passsing on Bowers is wild. But he went to the Bengals which tells me DJ forced a pick. Sometimes with mock drafts, people love a player and team fit so much that they have players slip way past what is feasible. People have been clamoring for the Bengals to draft a TE for years so Bowers would be a dream scenario for that crowd that thinks that.
    • The only thing that it changed was that Kelce got more looks and went from 1 catch for 1 yard before the half to 9 catches for 92 yards the rest of the way.     Forgotten is their LB play. Their LBs Nick Bolton and Willie Gay are good blitzers and stay with boot legs and rollouts well enough that Purdy with pressure in his face can barely get 5 yards off his throw after the pass catcher gets tackled. When 1-on-1 Purdy once outran Nick Bolton for a horse collar penalty, so Spags changed it to a safety Reid instead of putting an LB on Purdy realizing Purdy has got some wheels. You couldn't help but notice the quick adjustment. Plus, the angles an OLB takes also matter. Sam Hubbard of the Bengals on the surface may not be fast in a straight line but he takes very good angles and hence Lou Anurumo used that DE/OLB as a Mahomes spy and played contain in that 2021 AFCCG where the Bengals beat the Chiefs.   The biggest difference now is that Mahomes and The Chiefs are dinking and dunking like Brady and The Patriots and it is not a deep to shallow level passing game like before, more shallow to deep levels that gives DCs fits because Mahomes' decision making, since he was forced to grow after Tyreek Hill left, has improved. It doesn't help he has a D like the Patriots in those early SB years either. 
    • “If Ballard doesn’t add talent…”   When has that ever happened?   Some years are better than others, but the man adds talent.    “And if the coaching change doesn’t help…”.     After a great first year, why should you be at all concerned that Steichen’s influence won’t help?       I don’t know why you’re shoveling all this worry and negative viewpoints?   
    • Yeah, I agree with this. I also believe that Kelce getting aggressive with Andy Reid may have sparked the Chiefs as they were getting shut out at that point and Reid made some adjustments. I've never seen KC have this good of a defense though. Spags did an amazing job with them, and the adjustments were as good as Belichick made (since you mentioned the Pats). Mahomes didn't have an amazing year on offense in all honestly. The defense kept him in games. I saw a stat earlier in the year where they were either undefeated or only lost one game when allowing less than 24 points (I think they allowed 27 once). Mahomes is a great QB, but he didn't have to be this year. The defense stifled all the top offenses in the NFL.    McDuffie and Sneed are two shutdown corners. WRs had a lot of trouble Vs them. Solid pressure on the front 7 as well. It's amazing when you consider how late they draft every year. I wish Ballard would consider adding a secondary scout from KC that was responsible for adding Sneed and McDuffie.
