Overview
Three-year starter with an excellent motor to go along with above average toughness. Joseph's athletic ability and quickness serve him well as a run defender, but he is unlikely to be much of a factor as a pass rusher on the next level. Joseph will need to add mass, but he's got a shot to fit into a rotation as either a three-technique or shade nose in a 4-3 defense.

An All-South Jersey selection and summa cum laude graduate, Demby slipped through the recruiting ranks a bit to wind up at Maine. He started 10 games at left tackle as a true freshman, then did so again in 2015. He missed the 2016 season opener with a strained PCL but returned to play in 10 games, starting nine at his left tackle spot. In his final season, Demby was a preseason CAA All-Conference selection and a third-team FCS All-American before going on to play in all 10 of the team's games. Demby isn't an elite athlete, but his intelligence and ability to

One of the top high school running backs in the state of Michigan in 2014, Kelly took his game to the SEC instead of signing with Big Ten schools. The three-star recruit and all-state pick played in 10 games as a true freshman, rushing for 166 yards and a touchdown on 40 carries. In 2016, Kelly only started one of 12 games played as Jalen Hurd, Alvin Kamara, and even quarterback Joshua Dobbs, had more carries. But he finished second to Dobbs with 630 rushing yards and scored five times on just 98 totes. Kelly

Ogbonnia "Obo" Okoronkwo (pronounced o-BO-ny-uh o-kor-RON-kwo) was the son of Nigerian immigrants, and a defensive end recruit from Houston Alief Taylor High School before going to Oklahoma. He redshirted in 2013, then played in 11 games as a reserve, making eight tackles, three for loss, and two sacks. Okoronkwo lined up for the first nine games in 2015 (nine tackles, two sacks) before being sat down as an internal discipline. He got his chance to attack the quarterback in 2016, earning a second-team All-Big

Kiser has used his instincts, hustle, and powerful tackling to become one of the most productive linebackers (both against the run and as a pass rusher) in the country during his three years on the field with the Cavaliers. The two-time All-Maryland pick and Baltimore Sun's Co-Defensive Player of the Year in 2012, Kiser redshirted his first year in Charlottesville. He made 15 tackles in 12 games as a reserve as a freshman, tying for the team lead with nine stops on special teams. Kiser was installed in the middle of the Cavs'

It's no surprise Franklin's talent went under the recruiting radar, as his Greenville, Texas high school team went winless for four years (0-40). He was a two-time All-District pick, however, and received interest from SFA to earn a scholarship. Franklin played in eight games as a reserve in 2014 (11 tackles, one for loss) and then took over a starring role on defense. He was a second-team All-Southland Conference pick in 2015, starting four of 11 games, posting 32 tackles, 8.5 for loss, and six sacks (three coming against

Some brothers hug, other brothers line up together on a Big Ten offensive line. Brian and Jack Allen did that for two seasons, in 2014 and 2015. While older brother Jack was earning All-American honors those two years, Allen started off as a part-time starter and key reserve as a true freshman. He earned freshman All-American notice while playing in 12 games, starting once at left guard. Big Ten coaches named him second-team All-Conference the next season, when he started 10 games at left guard and two at

Noteboom was a lean and athletic honorable mention all-state pick from Plano, Texas before signing on with the Horned Frogs. The three-time All-Academic Big 12 pick has not missed a game since redshirting the 2013 season. He played as a reserve in 2014, then took over the right tackle spot for all 13 games as a sophomore. Noteboom moved to the blind side for 2016, starting every game and showing agility in pass protection that NFL scouts admire at the position despite growing into his frame. Big 12 coaches voted him honorable

In attesa del draft che inizierà stanotte ma che, a meno di clamorosi sviluppi, vedrà i Rams protagonisti solo a partire dal terzo giro, il front office di Los Angeles si è focalizzato sui contratti di alcuni giocatori a roster. Mentre continuano (apparentemente senza esito) le trattative per l'agognato prolungamento del contratto di Aaron Donald, il General Manager Les Snead ha comuncato di aver esercitato l'opzione per il quinto anno sui contratti da rookie di Todd Gurley e marcus Peters. Anche questa va letta come una notizia

Dodici mesi dopo siamo al punto di partenza. il contratto di Aaron Donald è ancora da rinnovare, e per il secondo anno consecutivo si prospetta un'estate di Holdout per il Defensive Player of the Year della scorsa stagione.
Fonti vicino al giocatore indicano che l'intenzione di Donald sarebbe quella di non partecipare alle attività primaverili che iniziano oggi e si protrarranno, con tempi e programmi diversi, per le prossime nove settimane, fino a che non sarà raggiunto un accordo per un nuovo contratto.
Ricordiamo che la medesima situazione si delineò lo scorso
