One Guy We Are Each Keeping Our Eye On In The Early Offseason

Malachi Corley

Malachi Corley is one of those special players that make football fun. Imagine taking Deebo Samuel and combining him in a lab with Tyreek Hill, now you have a Malachi Corley. Obviously Corley has some serious work to do to be considered on-par with two of the best receivers we have seen in recent years, but he has the talent and athleticism to go as far as he wants to in the NFL. Built like a running back, his frame is truly impressive at 5’10 215 lbs. Corley excels after the catch, primarily with his physicality, but also has the agility to make defenders miss in space. He has true NFL speed with the ability to take the top off the defense and while contested catches are not his specialty, he does have the ability to go up and compete for the 50/50 balls. He plays with a high motor and is an extremely willing blocker, both things that front offices love. He is going to take some development, especially learning NFL schemes, route running finesse and route trees, but with his unique blend of size, athleticism and physicality, he could be a very exciting player to watch over the next few seasons.” -Milo Powell, Content Writer

Malik Washington

Malik Washington is currently viewed as a day 3 pick for many people. I believe as time goes on, Washington will pave his way into day 2 discussions. Washington’s athletic profile does not jump off the paper. He is about 5’9”, 190 pounds and does not have elite speed. What he might lack in size and speed he makes up for in talent. Washington plays much bigger than his size. He absorbs contact and works through it while maintaining contact balance. He is not afraid to get tough extra yards displayed numerous times at Virginia his Senior year. He was first in the entire country with 110 receptions and 2nd in yds/game with 118.8. He won often in both man and zone coverage and is great at getting open against any type of defense. At the NFL level he will probably often stick to the slot. Any team drafting him in the 3rd round or later will be very lucky to add him. He reminds me a good bit of how Antonio Brown played. It will be exciting to follow him through the draft process.” –Greg Monteleone, Content Writer

Jamari Thrash

“Admittedly, I’m likely too high on this guy. However, there’s just something about him that I really like and draws me in. Particularly at the Senior Bowl, it felt like Jamari Thrash had one of the more consistent performances. He’s not very big, and he’s not a big contested ball guy. The good news is that he can create separation at varying levels and has been used in the deep game as well as short game, has good body control, and adjusts to the ball very well.

He’ll probably be drafted relatively late, isn’t the fastest, isn’t the biggest, and doesn’t have the most amazing hands in the class. But I feel like he’s the type of guy that could find a role and maybe you’re surprised a couple years from now. Thrash is one of the better dynasty stashes in my personal opinion, because you’re not going to be paying a whole lot for him come draft time, but I feel like there’s some upside there if you can get him in a wide receiver two or three role in the NFL. This is the year to stack round 3 and 4 roomie picks, and I believe Thrash is a guy to take a shot on in that range.” -Zach Hiduk, Podcast Host

Frank Gore Jr

“I had to go with Frank Gore Jr here.  Depending how you view things he was the loan bright spot at Shrine Bowl earning MVP honors and posting 6/87/1 on the ground, including a 49 yard touchdown run.  This was a great showing as Gore is more known for his pass catching ability, something NFL teams value, I view Gore as the 2024 Keaton Mitchell.  It’s most likely going to take time for him to get going and get comfortable in an NFL offense but I fully expect him to build hype when he gets his hands on the ball in camp, wherever he ends up.  He could be this year’s camp darling like Deuce Vaughn, hopefully with regular season better results, as they share a similar size; Gore stands at 5-7, 199 which is 23lbs heavier than Vaughn and 10lbs heavier than Mitchell.  The one thing he has going for him that they don’t/didn’t is that Gore can pass block which should get him on the field early and often.  I’m excited and will be keeping an eye on where he lands.” -Matt Olson, Head Content Manager
