The 5’7” 200-lb former Owl has drawn some comparisons to LeSean McCoy. Let’s take a look at some tape and see how much of that might be justified. A couple notes before we begin. As a certified “not expert” in college football, analysis here focuses almost entirely on Devin Singletary with an emphasis on mechanics. Also note that we’ll discuss upside a bit more than we would for an established NFL player. Play 1This is precisely the kind of run that’ll get you compared to Shady. There’s an initial twitch, behind the line, that’s hard to fully catch at full speed. It helps Singletary find the lane and burst through. Trusting his blocker is another reason Singletary finds success. Once he’s through, his speed looks fine but probably not elite. He’s caught from behind, but a small shift in his step avoids the shoestring tackle. Immediately afterward. a touch of peripheral vision and a dab of instinct tells Singletary to duck and he avoids another tackle. This run shows off a very slippery player. Play 2What’s another way to be compared to LeSean McCoy? “Dance” around behind the line and get tackled for a loss. Also like Shady, it’s not entirely Singletary’s fault as you can certainly give credit to a solid play by the defense. However the urge to always find a hole can be a downside. Play 3The dance isn’t always problematic for the record. A couple of low-key lower body movements and Singletary avoids a run for no gain. It’s not a huge play, either, but far better than zero. Over his three years in college, Singletary averaged 6.0 yards per carry. Play 4Devin Singletary isn’t a powerhouse by any means. Candidly Phillip Gaines Jerseys 2019 , physics aren’t always on the side of the guy. Singletary doesn’t shy away from contact though. With a head of steam and a well-placed shoulder he can pull off the occasional hit like this. At the end, his ability to lower and brace for contact helps keep his legs churning for extra yards. Play 5Here’s an example where physics just won’t play in his favor. Though his height allows him to stay lower than most opponents, at 200 lbs he can never really be a battering ram. This is a touchdown because his line does their job. Play 6This last GIF can stand for itself. What would be a tackle against many players becomes a fun replay.SummaryDevin Singletary appears to signify that the Buffalo Bills will continue to value the skill set of shiftier running backs like LeSean McCoy as they work to further refine the team. In a similar mold as McCoy, Singletary relies on a good initial push from his line. Once started, though, narrow lanes are sufficient for the small and shifty Singletary. Good vision and instincts help him find the holes and avoid tackles. His small frame allows leverage advantages in some cases, but at 200 lbs Singletary has a tough time truly running people over. Blocking (not included in the clips above) could be a cause for concern as the quality of competition is about to go way up. Singletary is by no means a bad gamble for Buffalo. As a possible heir apparent to Shady, Singletary can learn from McCoy and the other veterans on the roster. Pro Picks heads into the postseason with an incredible record straight up, 70 games over .500. A coach would have a lifetime contract for such an impressive showing.The key to picking NFL games, of course White Marshall Newhouse Jerseys , is winning against the point spread. In that area, well, we need a rally, three games under the break-even mark thanks to a particularly damaging Week 16.A strong playoffs served us well last year. So let’s do it again.No. 11 Tennessee (plus 7 1-2) at No. 8 Kansas City, SaturdayAll four wild-card matchups have spreads in the same range. This one seems most out of whack.While the Chiefs have not exactly recaptured their form of early in the schedule, when they were the NFL’s best, they are on the rise. The dynamic offense has been rekindled, particularly sensational rookie running back Kareem Hunt.“We look at it right around Game 12, you kind of see where they’re at and if they have a bad play you say, `Whoop! There’s the rookie wall Marshall Newhouse Jerseys 2019 ,'” coach Andy Reid joked — yes, Reid has a very good sense of humor, folks.“Sometimes I think that gets a little overrated, but we haven’t seen that with him. He’s done well and I think we’re probably a little hypersensitive to that when you get around the middle of the season, that 12th game.”This is the 17th game, and the trend for the Titans hasn’t been good lately. They lost three in a row down the stretch and needed to squeeze past AFC South winner Jacksonville, which had nothing to gain last Sunday, to make the field.The Titans won’t last long in it.BEST BET: CHIEFS, 23-10No. 7 Carolina (plus 6 1-2) at No. 5 New Orleans, SundayThis is the best looker of the four playoff openers White Trent Murphy Jerseys , a confrontation between two of the league’s strongest teams out of the NFL’s top division. The Saints or the Panthers are as capable as any NFC squad to get to the Super Bowl.New Orleans knocked off Carolina twice in the regular season, and is the more balanced side. It’s also the more explosive team.But if any of the road teams is going to spring an upset, it’s Ron Rivera and the Panthers, who have a much more recent record of postseason success than do Drew Brees and the Saints.UPSET SPECIAL: PANTHERS, 27-26No. 9 Atlanta (plus 6 1-2) at No. 4 Los Angeles Rams, SaturdaySo here come the more-experienced Falcons, ready to surge back to the Super Bowl and, this time, finish it off after building a big lead?We don’t buy it.These aren’t even close to being the same Falcons. Matt Ryan has had a problematic season, and the Falcons have made the kind of critical mistakes they avoided in 2016 — until the second half of that historic Super Bowl flop.The Rams are young and eager and explosive and dynamic and … well Trent Murphy Jerseys 2019 , superior.RAMS, 27-19No. 12 (tie) Buffalo (plus 7 1-2) at No. 10 Jacksonville, SundayThe feel-good story throughout Western New York — there are college football players who might not have been born when the Bills last made it this far — ends rapidly. Barring a stunning recovery from his ankle injury by LeSean McCoy, the Bills will be one and done, even though the Jags have a bunch of questionable areas on offense, particularly QB Blake Bortles.JAGUARS, 19-13——2017 RECORD:Last week: Against spread (9-7). Straight up (9-7)Season Totals: Against spread (117-120-10). Straight up: (162-92)Best Bet: 9-8 against spread, 10-7 straight up.Upset special: 9-8 against spread, 9-8 straight up.
