It is finally time of the NFL Draft! In a time when sports is almost completely stopped, getting to spend a few days watching the NFL Draft is a great sigh of relief – a sense of normalcy. This year is an interesting one, with a lot of high end talent trying to flood into the top ten picks. We also have a wealth of wide-receivers, a nice change from previous years. With that, here are my Round 1 Selections:
It’s the NFL’s version of Christmas! Nothing screams the start of a new season like the NFL Draft. Unlike the last few years, this year we have gotten a very mixed back of talent, a lot of players that could be stars and a lot that look like they need more time – all in the first round.

In a game where Joe Flacco didn’t throw for one touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers, ultimately ending up with a hip injury (a type of injury that has plagued the Ravens franchise for years), it looked as if all was lost for the Baltimore football club.
And then Lamar Jackson showed up. The complexion of this team changed.

As described by many, this is a team doing everything the other 31 teams aren’t – run first, pass second. With stars like Patrick Mahomes, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, and Jared Goff lighting up the scoreboard through the air, the Ravens are ticking critical seconds off the clock by keeping it on the ground. An offense that was more than pass happy with Flacco had completely changed… and became one of the most dangerous threats to the heavy hitting teams in the NFL.Continue reading “Lamar Jackson: The Future?”
