    Matt Waldman’s RSP Scout Talk: 2021 NFL Draft RB Class with J. Moyer

    Matt Waldman’s RSP Scout Talk: 2021 NFL Draft RB Class with J. Moyer

    Matt Waldman's RSP Scout Talk hosts former Rookie Scouting Portfolio contributor, J. Moyer of FFAstronauts for a great conversation about the running back class for the 2021 NFL Draft. 

    It's always fun to reunite with colleagues that I have worked with in the past. And if I had to pick one current draftnik/analyst I enjoy hearing their thoughts on running backs, it's J. Moyer. Now, a part of the FFAstronauts team, J and his crew are working on their own scouting guide that will be a worthwhile read.



    Moyer and I took an hour to talk about this year's running back class:



    * Why is the efficiency of movement important for running backs?

    * Who are the efficient runners in this class?

    * Who is the back that J sees as a Kamara-like runner?

    * How do we determine a runner's speed and acceleration from film study?

    * Where we're similar but different on Rhamondre Stevenson?

    * Why we're similarly not sold on Chuba Hubbard

    * What J appreciates about Trey Sermon.

    * What we like about Najee Harris and Kenneth Gainwell and where we differ.



    We cover several more prospects in an episode that I know many of you have been looking forward to us doing. We could have gone another hour and perhaps post-draft, we will.

    Matt Waldman’s RSP Scout Talk with Ric Serritella, NFL Draft Bible

    Matt Waldman’s RSP Scout Talk with Ric Serritella, NFL Draft Bible

    Matt Waldman's RSP Scout Talk picks up with an excellent 90-minute conversation with NFL Draft Bible's Ric Serritella about media scouting, team building, and prospect talk that you won't want to miss. 

    Earlier this week, I joined Ric and Scout Talk co-host Russ Lande for a conversation on Ric's State of Football podcast at SI.com. I wanted to pick up where we left off and go into more depth.



    * Ric and I share our "coming up" stories in this industry.

    * Ric's one love, one necessary evil, and one changing opinion about his career.

    * 2-3 players Ric and I are each sold on.

    * 1-3 players Ric and I would risk selecting if our co-workers on a team were on board.

    * How Ric and I would build teams if we were given a guaranteed five years as GMs.



    * UDFA strategy

    * A strategic reshaping of a scouting department

    * The employment of retired player-consultants

    * Vision for team construction





    * One likely UDFA that you don't think will ever be a starter much less make an active roster this year, but we're intrigued with their game.

    Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast: 2021 Quarterback Class Mind Dump

    Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast: 2021 Quarterback Class Mind Dump

    Matt Waldman does an RSP solo podcast about several quarterback prospects from the 2021 NFL Draft class. 

    If you missed the RSP Running Back or Wide Receiver Brain Dump Podcasts, check them out at your convenience. This week, I share my thoughts on the state of quarterback development and several 2021 prospects at the position.



    * Why the death of the pocket game is a gross exaggeration.

    * The NFL has improved its acclimation process for rookies, but the process might as well be on par with corporations that take shortcuts to meet quarterly expectations rather than execute sustainable practices.

    * Which quarterback's game is more icing than cake?

    * Why the Trevor Lawrence-Andrew Luck comp isn't too much.

    * Which mid-round prospect has a "clean" game?

    * Which potential developmental projection sees the game like a well-trained Marine?

    * The quarterback who gives me a nagging feeling that he'll be better than I think.

    Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast: 2021 WR Prospect Brain Dump

    Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast: 2021 WR Prospect Brain Dump

    Matt Waldman does an RSP solo podcast about several wide receiver prospects from the 2021 NFL Draft class. 

    If you missed the RSP Running Back Brain Dump Podcast, you can find it here. This week, I give quick takes on over 20 wide receivers.



    * How does 2021’s class compare to 2021 at the top of the board?

    * Who is the best overall weapon in this class?

    * Is DeVonta Smith a primary wide receiver?  Is the Marvin Harrison comparison too steep?

    * Why I'm high on Tylan Wallace and Rashod Bateman but think they have some minor speed bumps that could limit their first-year contributions.

    * The wide receiver with a "tell" that could be exploited with off-coverage if not addressed early (it should be).

    * Why Steve Smith is a far too combustible comparison for Elijah Moore but I'll explore Lane Kiffin's comparison as a starting point for sharing my own.

    * The part of Kadarius Toney's game that is way too out of control and must be addressed to maximize his potential.

    * A player whose route running and movement style remind me of Chad Johnson.

    * Which promising receiver is a light-switch player?

    Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast: 2021 RB Prospect Brain Dump

    Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast: 2021 RB Prospect Brain Dump

    Matt Waldman does an RSP solo podcast about several running back prospects from the 2021 NFL Draft class. 

    Apologies for not delivering an RSP Cast last week. I was busy finalizing much of my running back board for the 2021 Rookie Scouting Portfolio and Russ Lande took a new job as the head of U.S. scouting for the Montreal Alouettes. Congratulations to Russ, who will join me once again for future Scout Talk episodes next week.



    So, I figured it was a good time for a brain dump on running back prospects.



    * How does 2021's class compare to 2021 at the top of the board?

    * Who are the 4-6 backs 2-3 tiers below the top of the board? Why do they have the promise to develop into lead backs and potentially feature backs if they address one currently lacking in their game, but their volatility is great enough that we may never see them earn extended time on the field?

    * The prospect that reminds me of a young Tiki Barber.

    * The runner who has a lot of the positive qualities of Melvin Gordon to his game but makes 3-4 confounding decisions per contest that hold him back.

    * The back whose game I want to love, but can only like.

    * The player that I like as a future starter but may not have as high on my board as people will expect.

    * Why Eddie Lacy and LeGarrette Blount shouldn't be negative comparisons for runners and there are two that may fit those comparisons in some ways. Going further, why LenDale White shouldn't be a negative either unless you have done your homework well enough that you're making an off-field comparison and not an on-field one.

    Mark Schofield and Matt Waldman reconvene for a pre-Super Bowl, post-Senior Bowl, and post blockbuster trade conversation in this week's RSP Quick Game. 

    This week, Mark Schofield and I discuss the following NFL and NFL Draft topics:



    * Can the Buccaneers defense stop Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs' offense?

    * Why the offensive schemes are the difference between the Buccaneers stopping Aaron Rodgers (twice) but not Mahomes.

    * What kind of personnel/scheme would be ideal for stopping Mahomes?

    * The Stafford-Goff Trade:



    * Are we overestimating Sean McVay?

    * Are we underestimating Dan Campbell?

    * Why Stafford is seen as the immediate answer in L.A.

    * Why Goff is seen as the bridge to a new day?





    * Senior Bowl observations:



    * D'Wayne Eskridge

    * Rhamondre Stevenson

    * Josh Palmer

    * Chris Sample

    * Quinn Meinerz

    * Trevon Grimes

    * Jamie Newman

    * Mac Jones





    * Tre Walker--sleeper

    * Thoughts on Marty Schottenheimer's legacy.
