Since the Cleveland Browns are “my” team, I thought I’d try to take an objective look at the AFC North division overall and see who did the most to improve their roster. I said I’d TRY to be objective, but no promises…
When it comes to numbers, the division kind of stair-stepped up: Cleveland had 7, Baltimore had 8, Pittsburgh had 9 and Cincinnati chose a whopping 10 players.
As to positions, Defense has 17, Offense had 16 and there was one kicker taken. Yes, you read that right… my Browns took a kicker in the 5th round… we’ll talk more about that later…
The Bears won the NFC North last season with a 12-4 record. Without any picks in the first two rounds, the Bears had to take the best player available while filling team needs. With that being said, the Bears chose a running back to replace Jordan Howard, whom they traded to the Philadelphia Eagles. Montgomery fits what Nagy wants to do with a three-down back. Fans did not expect the Bears to pick a wide receiver with their next pick but Ridley was still on the board, and with these two new additions they give quarterback Mitchell Trubisky more firepower.
Results of the First Round in the 2019 NFL Draft…. in case you missed it…
Round 1 Pick 1. Arizona Cardinals: Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma. The 2018 Heisman Trophy Winner, Murray has the NFL dream arm, great skill-sets in the pocket, has a quick release in RPO situations, small, fast and elusive. And he likes baseball.
Round 1 Pick 2. San Francisco 49ers: Nick Bosa; DE Ohio State University. Touted as being one of the top two players in the draft, despite missing most of the 2018 college season with a groin injury. A pass rushing phenom coming from a family of pass rushers.
What can I say about the draft that hasn’t already been said? Not too much. We’ve already had an infinite amount of mock drafts. There’s been tons and tons of speculation about whose stock is rising, and whose is falling. We’ve broken down pretty much every play from every game of the possible top 10 draft picks and then some. We’ve heard the different trade scenarios.
I know who I want my team to take, I know who I don’t want them to take. I know that their GM has ideas of his own that could throw a wrench into my hopes and dreams, and I’ve
We’re all trying to look into a giant crystal ball to see how it’s going to shake out, but none of us know how it’ll actually will. Which is why this is my least favorite time of the NFL year. I’m sorry. I’ve tried to get around it, but I can’t.
The 2019 NFL draft is this week in Nashville, TN. When this was first announced, it was a bit hard for me to reconcile Nashville, Music City, with the hard-grinding men of the NFL.
Well, they’ve gone and one it – added music to the list of draft festivities, giving visitors a multitude of options on how to spend time waiting for their team to make a pick!
Here’s all the information from the press release that you’ll need if you are making the trip!
The NFL and the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp announced that MOON TAXI, an indie-alternative rock band founded and based in Nashville, will kick off the 2019 NFL Draft Experience with a free performance on the Draft Main Stage on Thursday, April 25.
The performance is part of the 2019 NFL Draft Experience – a free three-day football festival, held outside of Nissan Stadium, that will feature a variety of activities for fans of all ages.
I can’t believe it but the 2019 NFL Draft is only days from now, and you best believe there is going to be a lot of action going on. NFL is already full of buzz around the potential first round picks and the Arizona Cardinals are the focus of that buzz.
Many experts believe that the Arizona Cardinals will choose quarterback Kyler Murray as their number one pick. As expected, the Cardinals are staying quiet and are taking a stance on not knowing where the organization stands with the first overall pick.
“We are not done with this process,” general manager Steve Keim said, per Pro Football Talk’s Michael David Smith. “We have not made a decision on the first overall pick. There are a number of players in my opinion, and our scouts’ opinion, and our coaching staff’s opinion, that warrant being the first overall selection.” Keim may portray the team as undecided as to who they will choose at number one but the majority of analysts agree that Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray is the right choice. Murray has been viewed as a projected franchise QB. If the Cardinals want to be in the mix of playoff talks, they can’t pass on the opportunity of a player who is deemed to be an NFL starter.
As we roll into the final week until the 2019 NFL draft, it is time. Here it is, my final mock draft prediction. I did not go into much detail on any trade up or down scenarios, just a couple of guesses, even though I do believe we will see at least 2 trades during the first round.
The reality is, we as sportswriters, fans, bloggers, and yes, even expert NFL analyst, just don’t know for 100%. We all make the best educated guess possible. We love to play the GM game.
This year’s draft to me is one of the most unpredictable drafts we have had in quite some time, and that number 1 pick will set the tone. Then I expect a fast and furious first round from then on!!!
