2018 NFL Mock Draft 4-25-18

dallas-cowboys-kennedy assassintion

Welcome to the 2018 NFL mock draft. Team needs were more taken into account for the 2018 NFL mock draft, as the NFL free agency market has seen a whole lot of major moves. We’re just eight days away now from the NFL Draft at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

What will happen at Jerry’s World/The DeathStar? Our best projections follow below.

With only 32 picks to go around, yes, there will be a guy or two that you feel very strongly should be a first rounder, but got left out. Sorry, but it’s inevitable. Also, many of you will strongly disagree with the projections here, and with the write-ups, but try to be respectful about it in the comments section.

Notre Dame NFL Draft Mocksourcing: Nelson, McGlinchey, St. Brown

quenton nelson

In 2017, Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly finally went against his pass happy ways and committed to the run game. Why? Because he had two future NFL studs on the left side of his offensive line, and he set up not just the rushing attack, but the offense itself to play to the strengths of the Fighting Irish.

Tackle Mike McGlinchey and Guard Quenton Nelson paved the way for what was certainly a top ten, maybe top five run game in the nation. In just a week from tomorrow night, we’ll find out where both of these big boys will be balling professionally. With Nelson, there seems to be a very positive consensus- he won’t last beyond the top ten, and looks very likely to be selected top five.

2018 NFL Draft Attendees: Where All 22 Could Get Selected

Only 22 players were invited to the 2018 NFL Draft, and for those that made the cut, the future looks very bright indeed. We’ve since updated our 2018 NFL Mock Draft, in the wake of the attendees list being announced.

Getting named to this short list is about as good as it gets in terms of NFL Draft stock, as it’s the highest indicator possible of first round potential. It also provides a glimpse into who has the best odds of being selected first overall. Like an online casino, trying to project who gets selected where, is fun and engaging, because it’s so unpredictable.

In fact, sports books do take bets on which players will be drafted where.

2019 NFL Mock Draft 4-4-18

nfl-draft

It’s version 1.0 of our 2019 NFL mock draft. The order is completely randomized at this point. Don’t read anything more into the order than that. The 2018 NFL Draft has not been taken into account, as it obviously has not transpired yet! We did not figure our 2018 NFL mock draft selections into this mock either, as that’s kind of overkill- engaging in that kind of behavior.

However, if you want to see the 2018 mock, go to this link. Team needs were sometimes, but mostly, not taken into account, as it’s still absurdly early for a 2019 mock draft in the truest sense. Really, it’s more of a glorified prospect list at this point, to be honest. Have issues with the mock draft picks? Of course you do! Someone always does- have at it in the comments section. Just keep it classy and professional! Enjoy!

Patriots DB Devin McCourty Takes Bold Stance for Pretrial Rights

devin mccourty

We live in an era when so many star professional athletes think brand first every single time they speak in public. Not many act like New England Patriots defensive back Devin McCourty, who has a social conscious, and isn’t afraid to convey it.

McCourty is one of a few Patriots who skipped The White House visit/meeting with Donald Trump and spoke out about it. The Rutgers alum said in a Time Magazine Interview:

“Basic reason for me is I don’t feel accepted in the White House. With the president having so many strong opinions and prejudices, I believe certain people might feel accepted there while others won’t.”

New England Patriots the GOOD GUYS on March For Our Lives Weekend

patriots logo

Warning: the following post will subject you, the reader, to extremely high levels of cognitive dissonance. The New England Patriots are now wearing the white cowboy hat, instead of the black one; at least temporarily.

You may think the Patriots are the bad guys, but on this issue, the one that matters the most right now in America, they are on the right side of history. Over the weekend, the New England Patriots loaned their team plane to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students and their families who traveled to Washington, D.C., for the March For Our Lives rally.

As conservative pundit David Frum indicated, this is exactly what social change looks like.

kitten bowl

You’ve already seen a zillion Super Bowl LII preview stories, and you’ll see a zillion more between now and Sunday. How many Kitten Bowl preview articles have you come across though? Well, I hope there will eventually will be a lot of them because Kitten Bowl is about a cause that is as noble as it gets- adopting shelter pets.

Kitten Bowl V is part of Hallmark Channel’s Adoption Ever After pet initiative, spotlighting the plight of homeless animals and the joy that the adopted pets bring into the forever homes.

Root Against Roger Goodell and the NFL; Root for the Patriots

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell

In recent years, we’ve seen NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell mercilessly booed every single time he comes to the podium on NFL Draft night. Every bit of that booing and more is deserved, as he’s truly engaged in some deplorable acts in recent years.

Like our current President, Goodell was born on third base and thought he hit a triple, a self-defining trait that no doubt feeds the narcissism, solipsism and egocentrism in each man. Goodell is a U.S. Senator’s son who has failed upwards in life, and taken a product that was almost transcendent in its quality during the 1990s and early 2000s, and degenerated it into nearly unwatchable rubbish today.

Early returns show a 30% increase in the first 24 hours of wagering compared to last year, driven by the underdog accomplishments of the Philadelphia Eagles. The run up to Super Bowl LII reveals vital, unexpected trends which have influenced the numbers offered by sportsbooks as February 4th nears.

Super Bowl LII: Patriots vs Eagles Odds, Prop Bets Guide

super bowl lii

The Super Bowl LII match-up is set and once again it includes the New England Patriots, who have become the National Football League’s Hulk Hogan of sorts. If you watched/followed WWE in the late 1980s-early 1990s, it was called WWF back then, then you remember Hulk Hogan being the guy that seemingly always won, despite how much it seemed that he was going to lose the whole time.

The Patriots certainly have that sort of feel these days, especially so in yesterday’s AFC Championship win over the Jacksonville Jaguars and last year’s Super Bowl triumph over the Atlanta Falcons.

Forecasting the NFL Pro Bowl as Patriots, Eagles Players Replaced

pro bowl

Now that we know for certain that it will be the New England Patriots versus the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII, the Pro Bowl rosters have also been updated. All the members of the Eagles and Patriots who were honored with a Pro Bowl selection must now withdraw from the exhibition game, as they have a much more important business trip to Minnesota to prepare for.

The original Pro Bowl rosters were announced on December 20, but since then we’ve learned that several players won’t be able to participate. Now that we’re in the home stretch, and we know who’s in and who’s out, it’s time to preview and handicap the NFL All-Star game which commences at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida this Sunday 1/28 at 3PM eastern.

Five Reasons the Jacksonville Jaguars Could Beat the New England Patriots

jacksonville-jaguars

By John O’Leary

As the NFL season slowly approaches Super Bowl 52, it’s become quite clear that not much has changed since last year. Not at the top, at least.

The scenery in the playoffs is certainly different. Three teams that didn’t crack the playoffs a year ago – the Eagles, Vikings and Jaguars – are all competing for a chance to get to the league’s finale.
