NFL, NFLPA release results of annual helmet testing: Three previously approved models now prohibited | nfl.com

https://www.nfl.com/news/nfl-nflpa-release-results-of-annual-helmet-testing-three-previously-approved-mod

This year, 41 helmet models were tested, including three models which ranked in the top 10 overall. Included in the top three helmets overall is a new position-specific helmet — the VICIS Zero2-R Trench — designed for offensive and defensive linemen. That helmet features bumpers on the front and upper side of the helmet, where sensors have indicated the most impact takes place for linemen. Position-specific helmets are considered the next frontier in helmet technology, although it is too early to know how quickly players will embrace them.

My question for Brady is: If you had played behind Mahomes’ O line last Superbowl, would you be out of that full body cast by now?

CB Surtain II, S Holland and LB Parsons: the only defenders selected in the first 18 picks in AG’s first round mock. Drafts gone by GM’s were falling over each other to get an Edge, OLB or DL (not the first round but who remembers Breeland Speaks). And yet, it seems to me that AG’s mock could be very close to how things go – including the run on QBs. I wish the real draft could get here already but this mock is a fun exercise and sure helps me get up to speed on some prospects. Seth Keysor is doing a good review of top OL prospects on his Chief in the North blog, worth a look. Meanwhile it snowed here yesterday and temperatures are below freezing, the hyacinths are all WTF.
