2070 Las Vegas Rounders Draft Review

2-18
Spencer Gochanour OT Boston College
6'7" 336 lbs
Image

Spencer Gochanour's draft day started like any other blue chip prospect's draft day. He had the suit, his phone, his agent, and his parents by his side in the green room. As with many drafts, someone starts to slide and that's where this young man's worst nightmare came true. As he watched his peers realize their dreams, his was dashed in 32 painful selections. Day 2 of the draft didn't fare much better until his phone rang right before Las Vegas called his name. The kid is as dumb as a brick, has a short fuse, and a competitive streak that many confuse with a bad attitude. Gochanour is still fairly green which meant with all things considered, no one wanted to roll the dice. This was not the case with Vegas, who felt the risk of him being a total bust was worth the 2.18 risk they wagered. The wager was placed, the dice were rolled, and both fans and detractors can't wait to see the outcome. They thought he was pissy before, wait until they get a load of this kid with a chip on his shoulder.

5-12
Roman O'Donnell CB Penn State
5'9" 187 lbs
Image

Vegas really needed to go secondary in the 2nd round but couldn't pass on a blue chip prospect that fell into their lap. Fast forward 3 more rounds and the likes of Roman O'Donnell are the best of the rest. O'Donnell is a hands-on, aggressive cover corner that lacks size and power but makes up for it with tenacity and annoyance. He's not afraid to put a hat on a runner but lacks the size to do it with authority or by himself at times. O'Donnell's slight frame does raise concerns in the durability department but his speed, man, and zone skills are needed in an aging Vegas secondary.

5-19
Drew Beadnell OG Mississippi
6'2" 305 lbs
Image

Beadnell is like any other offensive line pick - it's nothing sexy or exciting unless you enjoy watching large men that enjoy running through other large men. Beadnell is known for doing just that - he projects to contribute significantly in both the run and pass game in Vegas and take the reins from fellow meathead Bart LeFavor at some point soon.

6-11
Alex Anzivino WR Tennessee
5'8" 188 lbs
Image

When you are a short, light WR, you typically are there for your speed. What happens when you are a short, light, and slow WR? Well, you bench more than anyone taller, bigger, or faster than you. Anzivino had a productive college career and finished his senior year with impressive numbers. The numbers weren't record setting, but considering how small and slow this guy is they should be a record of some kind. Anzivino didn't really impress in drills at the combine either, but his tape speaks for itself. He runs routes with the best talent in this class, he always makes catches beyond the sticks, and he would run through a wall just for an opportunity to make a catch. He's not going to make any appearances on ESPN's top 10 segments, but he's the guy you look to when you absolutely need a catch. Vegas started this draft rolling dice and they have shown no signs of stopping any time soon. The dice are out!

6-18
Van Harrison CB Illinois
6' 0" 200 lbs
Image

Harrison made a name for himself at U-of-I as a shut down corner. He never achieved ball hawk status because he simply has no hands, but he became known for his ability to sniff out a play and break up passes in crucial moments. "The Rat" is not the most athletic secondary prospect, but he has pro speed and a nose for the ball. Harrison projects to a strong safety in Vegas due to his ability to man up, disect plays, and lay the lumber. His knack for finding the ball and punishing whoever has it or wants to catch it can lead to some missed tackles occasionally, but he's still steady tackler and asset in the run game. Harrison either has no clue how to play zone or bails on his zone responsibilities in search of the ball or big hit, so his opportunities at CB or as an every down Safety may be limited at the next level unless he can learn to be disciplined.

7-10
Elias Wilkerson OT Texas - El Paso
6' 5" 314 lbs
Image

Wilkerson is a raw talent out of UTEP who may have done himself a disservice by choosing to go to school near family. This Tulsa product wanted to play in Texas and UTEP gave him his shot, which may have cost him some development during his 4-year college career. Wilkerson amassed enough tape for CFL scouts to see his potential, but while Wilkerson has the size and the numbers to play LT in the league, he has to show significant strides in his development this next year to fulfill his life-long dream of playing in the CFL.

7-17
Perry Forrester LS Northwestern
6' 3" 251 lbs
Image

Known more for his contributions in class at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern, Forrester is a big guy that can't block and isn't athletic enough to be a receiving tight end at the collegiate level, much less in the CFL. What he can do is snap the ball accurately and to a place holder in 1.17 seconds. A number like this doesn't just get you a job as a long snapper in the CFL, it gets you drafted to do that job.

Good stuff

Week 3

And we're back, folks! Welcome to a gridiron showdown in Sin City where the Las Vegas Rounders are hosting the Seattle Spartans in this high-stakes CFL matchup! The Rounders came into this one looking to extend their winning streak, while the Spartans are hoping to pull off a huge upset on the road. Let's get right into the action!

The game kicked off under clear skies and mild temperatures, perfect conditions for some football. Las Vegas won the toss and elected to receive, setting the stage for a fast start. From the get-go, it was clear that the Rounders' ground game was firing on all cylinders. Running back Mark Gredzinski set the tone early with some powerful runs up the middle, showing great vision and burst through the line of scrimmage.

But it wasn't just the ground game that was working for Las Vegas. Quarterback David Kaesviharn was sharp in the pocket, connecting with his receivers on some big plays downfield. Wideout Caleb Stuart and tight end Ethan Davis were instrumental in the passing game, finding openings in the Spartans' secondary and moving the chains.

Defensively, the Rounders came out with intensity, pressuring Seattle's quarterback Kent Tyler and forcing some errant throws. Linebacker Buddy Hargreaves was a force to be reckoned with, wreaking havoc in the backfield and disrupting the Spartans' offensive rhythm.

As the game progressed, Las Vegas continued to dominate on both sides of the ball. Running back Noah Finley showcased his versatility, contributing both as a rusher and receiver out of the backfield. And let's not forget about the Rounders' special teams, with kicker Abel Rhoden nailing field goals and extra points to keep the scoreboard ticking.

Despite a valiant effort from the Spartans, including some impressive plays from their own standout players like wide receiver Andres Asimov and running back Joel Sallee, they couldn't overcome the relentless pressure from the Rounders.

In the end, it was a convincing victory for Las Vegas as they secured another win at home and solidified their position atop the CFL standings. Final score: Las Vegas Rounders 27, Seattle Spartans 6.

What a game, folks! The Rounders put on a clinic in all phases of the game, showcasing why they're a force to be reckoned with in the CFL. Stay tuned for more thrilling action as the season unfolds!

2069 Las Vegas Rounders Draft Review

2069 Las Vegas Rounders Draft Review

1-01 (1)
David Kaesviharn QB Fresno State
6'1" 210 lbs
Image

Pre-Camp:
Post-Camp Analysis:

All three QBs were considered the guy for Vegas at one point or another leading up to the draft. In the end, Kaesviharn heard his name called by Commissioner Smitty for the first overall pick to kick off the 2069 draft. Woodson was the clear favorite arm in this class but the combine exposed an athletic monster in Bey, who had one of the best combines of the decade. However, after the interview cycle finished, it was Kaesviharn who emerged atop the Vegas draft board. With the second-best arm in the draft and the best soft skills of the bunch, Kaesviharn should be the answer in Vegas.

3-07 (71)
Avery Thames OT Oklahoma Stater
6'0" 306 lbs
Image

Pre-Camp:
Post-Camp Analysis:

After trading up from 1.09 to 1.01, we had to send our 2.08 and 3rd next year up to Seattle. With 10 Tackles and a handful of Guards gone by the early 3rd, we liked Thames to step in as our swing Guard on day one. With LeFavor heading into his 9th year, it won't be long before Rottinghous returns to the right side and Thames takes over at LG.

4-06 (102)
Martin Boeck WR Indiana
5'11" 188 lbs
Image

Pre-Camp:
Post-Camp Analysis:

We had a hard time deciding between Boeck and Doersburg here. Boeck's combine was a tale of two outcomes, but his skills are very intriguing. Boeck enters a young WR room with another new addition of Bobby Burns via free agency. Burns and Ungerer are the vets who can hopefully steer these young bucks in the right direction. We had WR Harder as a late-3rd/early-4th grade but it's the CFL and we couldn't get back into the mid-3rd so we went with the next WR on our list. We are counting on Boeck's hands, 3rd down catching, route running, and big-play receiving to support Kaesviharn's upcoming campaign.

4-07 (76)
Duane Doersburg S Penn State
6'0" 205 lbs
Image

Pre-Camp:
Post-Camp Analysis:

When you can't decide between two guys, call Mikey for a trade. Boeck was our guy at 4.06, so if we couldn't make a reasonable trade here, we still go WR Boeck and hope our guy falls. Doersburg had the bars we wanted to backfill an aging Safety and looks like a poor man's Mitch Wickes - he just trades some CB bars for a little zone skill. This was the first pick where we deviated from our usual valuation method, so if Duane doesn't make the cut, we won't be surprised.

5-05 (133)
Dustin Cheatwood S Penn State
5' 11" 198 lbs
Image

Pre-Camp:
Post-Camp Analysis:

Cheatwood was high on our list and even though we went with Doersburg with 4.07, we couldn't let Cheatwood and his combine slip any further. His broad jump is the only blemish on his combine and we don't believe his bars are accurate. It's been a while since we let combine dictate a pick. It's still unclear if Dustin is a corner or safety but we'll make that determination at some point.

7-08 (200)
Toby Connell RB Wisconsin
5' 9" 205 lbs
Image

Pre-Camp:
Post-Camp Analysis:

This is where we like to find combine-only guys and we already warmed up with Cheatwood in the 5th, so let's roll with Connell in the 7th. His combine scores suggest these bars are heavily masked. Or they're not and we're wrong. Again, no surprise whichever way he turns out. We are looking forward to his development and hopeful unmasking.

7-23 (215)
Tony Meier QB Kansas State
6' 2" 215 lbs
Image

Pre-Camp:
Post-Camp Analysis:

I don't know why we had QBs on our list still. The deck is stacked against Meier right out of the gate, as he is the 5th member of our QB room and we'll be surprised if he makes the 60-man roster heading into the pre-season. We'll be chasing down a guy or two in 2nd FA that were after Meier on our list.
