    Houston senior RB Charles Sims will transfer, according to Rob Sellers of Rivals.
    Sims is an extremely talented runner and was poised for a great final season, so this news comes as a surprise. He led Houston with 851 rushing yards and 11 rushing touchdowns to go along with 37 receptions for 373 yards and three touchdowns. Sims will certainly have plenty of options in terms of landing spots.


    Fairly strange development for Sims to be transferring out of the Houston program. I'd be interested in determining exactly why he feels the need to transfer.

    Either way, he's going to help whatever program he finds himself in. Probably a lot.

    I think he's the best pass catcher out of the backfield among the Senior class of RB's. I've always thought this kid could line up at receiver and produce. He has a similar profile all the way around as a back like DeMarco Murray. Always reminded me of Murray.

    Reminded me on film of a cross between Murray and Bush.

    There's talk of him entering the Supplemental Draft.

    Rams, Jets, or Colts?

    The issues with Goodson on the Jets are a little overblown, or at least the headline shock is worse than its real value. It's nothing new to either the Jets or John Idzik. The Jets selected Kenrick Ellis knowing he had an even more serious legal issue hanging over his head and may actually be deported. John Idzik came from Seattle where they took chances on all kinds of guys with legal issues or off field character concerns. Because of the experience with this type of thing all the way around, you can count on the Jets to get their arms wrapped around the REAL implications of it and not end up reacting irrationally out of fear. So I wouldn't expect the Jets to trip over themselves trying to grab whatever tailback suddenly comes available in the Supplemental Draft.

    Mike Goodson was out partying with his cousin's fiancee, who drove his own car, which happened to have a loaded gun locked in the glove box. Presumably the gun belongs to the cousin's fiancee since it was his car and all. It wasn't Goodson's gun and he wasn't driving. The worst you can say about Goodson is he had marijuana paraphernalia on him which had a small amount of marijuana in it. To my knowledge, New York isn't even arresting for that anymore. They're just handing out tickets. The marijuana presence will get Goodson in the NFL's substance abuse program but won't carry a fine or suspension for first offense.

    As for the Colts, it does baffle me a little bit why everyone picks on Donald Brown and Vick Ballard. Mind you I wasn't a huge fan of Donald's when he came out but he did show in 2011 what he's capable of by averaging 4.8 yards per carry. And Ballard I thought was pretty genuinely good. Both players played behind a poor line. For whatever this is worth PFF rated their run blocking 24th in the league. And their pass blocking was one of the very worst in the NFL. Anthony Castonzo is the only guy on that line that can play. They need a lot better. I mean if you look at PFF's "Elusive Rating" which is just a mathematical treatment that accounts for missed tackles created by the runner, and the yards after contact created by the runner, on a per carry basis...Vick Ballard ranked #8 of 24, amongst RBs with 50% of their team's carries. I'm not trying to pick on you, I see the Colts' RB unit denigrated a lot, but while I have my doubts on Donald Brown he's still no Daniel Thomas, and Vick Ballard is genuinely good. I also think there's still meat on the bone for Delone Carter, too.

    So I guess the SHORT answer to your question is....the Rams. I thought Daryl Richardson was surprisingly good last year, but that's surprisingly good in the DuJuan Harris way, not the Vick Ballard way. Isaiah Pead, whom I liked coming out as a return man and potential 3rd down guy, gave them nothing. They drafted Zac Stacy real low. They could certainly use insurance against Pead and Stacy.

    South Florida's Sterling Griffin is going to transfer, it looks like. He graduated and he is potentially looking to move over to Louisiana Tech to be re-united with Skip Holtz. I mention it here because Slimm has Griffin amongst his top 9 senior wide receivers, in Tier 2.

    Griffin's departure is significant but as a South Florida season ticket holder I like that it should open the way for Andre Davis, Sean Price and DaVario Montgomery to get more work. I think those three have more NFL potential.

    I might be too high on Stacy, but I think before year's end, he'll be the main guy in that backfield. I was hoping we'd give him a look.

    Bad day for Ohio State. RB Carlos Hyde gets dismissed, and CB Bradley Robey gets arrested.

    Mississippi St's offense looks much more formidable with Dak Prescott as opposed to Tyler Russell.

    Russell began the season against Oklahoma St. the same way he ended it last year against Northwestern in the Gator Bowl.... inaccurate, and throwing some of the worst INT's a quarterback can throw. They're just bad interceptions. Now he has concussion issues to worry about on top of his inability to lead an effective offense.

    On a side note, this kid pulling the trigger for Eastern Illinois does a lot of things that I like. Jimmy Garoppolo will be making an appearance among my Senior QB prospects when I can get around to making a mid-season revision.

    Been studying Jeff Janis for small school Saginaw Valley St. Big receiver with tremendous speed. Dominates at that level....doesn't belong there.

    At 6'3", 218 pounds with 4.45 speed, looks a lot like Jordy Nelson did coming out of Kansas St. I'd like to see him in a Senior Bowl setting. Should get the opportunity....deserves it.
