If you and countless football fans stayed up last night to watch the draft…imam clap for you…we got a show!!! And in typical Dallas Cowboy fashion it was long, elaborate and highly questionable. But I won’t waste your time, when I finally shut off the TV after watching 4 hours of draft coverage I had one thought in my mind “WTF DID I JUST WATCH?”! I was on the edge of punching a wall and getting a beer to celebrate (but I live in Ottawa and all the bars are dead at 1130pm). Here is my quick analysis of what happened last night. Winners, Losers, Surprises and Predictions, lets GET IT!
Simple, the main need was a Wide Receiver because we had the worst passing offence in the league, Joe
Floppo Flacco was averaging 5.7 yards per attempt last season…my 7 year old sister can do that. Instead of taking Calvin Ridley or DJ Moore he grabbed a big Tight End, Hayden Hurst, who is projected to be the next Travis Kelce. Since our Offensive Coordinator is addicted to check down plays why not grab a big 6’5 260lbs guy to take it in the middle (no homo).
NO ONE believes in Flacco anymore, last season was his worst statistically…this is the first season I believed those “Joe isn’t Elite” memes that NFL fans love to use. It’s simple, we can’t win with him so Ozzie came up to grab LAMAR “THE FUTURE” JACKSON! Biggest steal in the draft! Lamar has the drive, skills and hustle to take us to another SuperBowl and a great Mentor in Robert Griffin III, my prediction is that we trade Flacco at the end of this season, RG3 and Jackson battle it out for the starter spot. Since RG3 is the football Derrick Rose, he’ll get merked and the Lamar Jackson era will begin.
New York Giants: Saquon Barkley is going be the best Running Back they’ve had since Tiki Barber, rookie of the year candidate, you heard it here first.
San Diego Chargers : Derwin James and Casey Hayward…just imagine that secondary…maaaan I feel sorry for AFC West
trash QBs and Wide outs…my gawd…
New York Jets
Sam Darnold doesn’t like the Jets he never wanted to be there, Josh Rosen was literally right there…Sam Darnold is gonna be Mark Sanchez and that is not a good thing. With 4 WHOLE ASS QUARTERBACKS on the depth chart the New York “we’ll find a way to fuck up” Jets decided to get a 5th one. Terrible decision…why not get a strong O-Lineman? Why not support your terrible defence by grabbing a reliable Defensive End…Bradley Chubb was right there. I just feel bad for Todd Bowels, he’s going to get fired for this headass decision…Sam Darnold has BUST written all over him.
New England Patriots: Yes I said it…the Pats did not need a Running Back and on top of that they didn`t get a reliable one. Sony Michel will not succeed in Belicheik`s system, that`s a fact, they should have got Guise from LSU.
Bengals :….wtf did they do?
- Baker Time in The Land? He is not Johnny Manziel but the mans has the potential to be, especially with the homie Josh Gordon and JR Smith in the same city, I give it 3 months till we have a cocaine and hooker scandal. Baker has the potential to be great but so does everyone in the first round, he needs leadership and guidance, two things the Browns have NEVER had. We might be looking at the Brown’s 29th QB change since 1999…
- Shaquille Griffin getting Snubbed! He is clearly a first round Linebacker and to see 3 guys that play his same position get drafted beforehand was shocking and pathetic. Let the man BALL
- Lamar Jackson as the last pick ! To be real I’m not complaining too much cause I love him on our Ravens but I expected mid 1st round or even going to Arizona
- Josh Rosen slipping ! He was predicted to be a top 5 pick and even the 1st overall pick on some boards, to see him slide to 10th was almost as bad as seeing Jackson slide to 32
Only Jackson and Mayfield actually become elite/pro bowl Quarterbacks, Rosen, Allen and Darnold remain 2nd string guys or go to the CFL.
The Cleveland Browns become relevant in 2 seasons and take the AFC North title.
Saquon Barkley or Calvin Ridley win Offensive Rookie of the year
Bradley Chubb walks away with Defensive Rookie of the year easily
