NfL Draft 1st Round Thoughts
Now that Round 1 is over, here are some reactions;
It was an interesting 1st round in the NFL draft last night with Baker Mayfield going #1 Overall and Sam Darnold falling to the NY Jets. The New York Giants picking Barry Sanders-like Saquon Barkley and the Ravens ending the round with Lamar Jackson as the heir apparent to Joe Flacco.
It was nice to see my Seahawks pick up an RB where they picked at 27 and Good to see the Broncos not get one.
Overall the thing that the analysts won't tell you is that at the end of the day it's all about the system and other types of variables that will go into whether it was a successful draft for these teams.
That's what it's going to be about for Sam Darnold in New York City. How can he handle the pressure and the Newspapers dissecting his every move? It did look like the winner of the offseason though still is the Vikings who picked up a stud Qb a CB and Sheldon Richardson for their line. But as they say, Games aren't played in the draft room, they're played on the field.
