How Nolan Nawrocki Made Himself Into The NFL's Most Infamous Scout - Daniel Libit
He does much of his work in his basement. Next to his desk is a full weight room set up with a punching bag. Five large flatscreen televisions are mounted on the nearest wall. The lights are dimmed when we meet, and Nawrocki is using one of the TVs, which is hooked up to his laptop, to show me footage of Nick Foles's interview at the 2012 NFL draft combine. This is insider stuff, unavailable to the general public.

Expected Completion Percentage and Defensive Personnel Faced - Mike Clay
This article will be broken into two sections. First, I’m going to compare the actual and expected adjusted completion percentages of each relevant quarterback from last season, showing my work along the way. Second, I’ll look at the quarterbacks who saw the most/least Base, Nickel, and Dime defenses last season.

Which NFL QBs are worth a No. 1 pick? - Mike Sando (Insider)
Rivers has fallen short of the Super Bowl despite reaching the playoffs with teams that won 14, 13, 11, nine and eight games during the regular season. He ranks last out of 14 quarterbacks in postseason Total QBR since 2006 (minimum five games). For what it's worth, Roethlisberger ranks 13th on that list

3 for 3 Mock Draft No. 2 - Free Agency Edition, Round 1 - Alessandro Miglio
The Chargers need a big body to anchor the nose and let Corey Liuget and Kendall Reyes one-gap. While Ra’Shede Hageman has awesome upside, Louis Nix is no slouch himself. Even though he was hampered by injuries in 2013, Nix still flashed the power going forward and the anchor to be a long-term NFL starter. He, Liuget, and Reyes should form a quite potent defensive line and allow the linebackers plenty of room to roam, shoot gaps, and make tackles.

Pass Rushing: Bringing Numbers - Nathan Jahnke
It is interesting to note that a QB’s passer rating is lower at five rushers than four. This is because a quarterback is more likely to be sacked and pressured with five rushers. They are also less likely to be successful at throwing the ball so it might be worth it for teams to rush with five rushers more often.
