The Bulls' defensive leader wins with physical ability and a good understanding of how to beat blocks by Chris Trapasso @ChrisTrapasso CBSSports.com 2m ago • 5 min read Khalil Hodge needs some more love as a legit NFL prospect.Though he plays for the Buffalo Bulls, historically a non-powerhouse in the MAC, the senior linebacker has been overshadowed by two teammates on the offensive side of the ball. Wideout Anthony Johnson -- a 6-foot-2, 205-pound, yards-after-the-catch specialist -- had 1,356 yards and 14 touchdowns on 76 receptions in 2017 and is a likely first- or second-round pick.

These questions will shape how teams approach the early portions of next year's draft by Chris Trapasso @ChrisTrapasso CBSSports.com 2m ago • 15 min read Many teams enter the draft with a "best player available" philosophy, but needs simply can't be ignored and likely play into that plan of attack on draft weekend. During the 2018 regular season, some needs will be addressed as clubs get contributions from unexpected players. In other instances, needs will arise due to injury or down seasons from typically consistent producers. These are the questions each NFC team must answer before the 2019 NFL Draft.Will Davis Webb or Kyle Lauletta show enough to be considered Eli's heir? I understand why Eli Manning is still beloved by (most) G-Men fans and why Ben McAdoo's benching of him was widely criticized, particularly around New York.
