New England Patriots draft preview 2014- day two


belichick

If you think it’s difficult trying to figure out what Bill Belichick is going to do in the first round of an NFL Draft, the real fun in any Patriots draft doesn’t start until the second and third rounds get going.

Belichick loves to trade down and acquire additional picks to use on day two of the draft, hoping he can find some first-round talents who may have fallen for one reason or another. Since 2007, only once has a Patriots draft not included multiple picks in at least one of the second or third round. (And that was the 2012 draft, when the Pats traded up to take Chandler Jones and Dont’a Hightower in the first round).

2014 NFL Mock Draft: 5-8-14 FINAL EDITION


2014-nfl-mock-draft

This 2014 NFL mock draft will be our FINAL edition! Draft Day is finally here! 2014 will be remembered as the year that the NFL Draft totally off the rails and completely jumped the shark. Did you see NFL.Com mock draft of Star Wars characters?

This is the year that the NFL Draft was moved back two weeks, giving us media types way too much free time to talk about it. Combine that with it being Johnny Football’s class, the most over-covered athlete of all time, and no consensus #1 or #2 pick, and it was perfect storm of non-stop 2014 NFL mock draft media over-saturation.

2014 FULL Seven Round NFL Mock Draft FINAL


johnny-manziel-2014-seven-round-nfl-mock-draft

Here is our FINAL seven round NFL mock draft. It’s not written by me, it’s authored by a website reader who wishes to remain anonymous. I will tell you he puts a whole lot of work into it. And of course because a seven round NFL mock draft is a ton of work.

This year’s NFL Draft will no doubt be better than last year’s draft. The whole top 10 was all fat people and guys you’ve never heard of. The #1 overall pick was a two star recruit who ended up at a low major MAC school; and NO ONE knew who he was until the week before the draft. So this year’s draft will be better, but the run-up to the draft, the overkill and over-coverage, is the worst in history. Those extra two weeks are killing us, with all the same storylines being beaten to death.

Chicago Bears Mock Draft FINAL (all 7 rounds)


Chicago Bears draft pick hopeful-ha-ha-clinton-dix

The NFL Draft is nigh! The Chicago Bears have seven draft picks heading into next week’s annual selection, and there are still many needs that have to be filled. Time for a Chicago Bears mock draft.

There has been a slowing down in free agent signings, so there won’t be too many new names listed below. I do not factor in draft day trades. Chicago could very well trade any of their picks, especially the #14 pick in the first round.

Because of Chicago’s needs, a trade down in the early rounds could mean more quality players in the second, third, and fourth rounds when some quality players fall because of other teams’ needs. [Read more…]

Blake Bortles girlfriend Lindsey Duke to break internet on Draft night


lindsey-duke-BLAKE-BORTLES

Lindsey Duke is more famous than her boyfriend, former UCF QB Blake Bortles. This despite the fact that Bortles is being projected as a top 5 NFL Draft pick, and quite possibly the #1 overall pick to the Houston Texans. Due to her “physical features,” bikini picture heavy Instagram account and the general creepiness of the internet, Lindsey Duke is overshadowing her Fiesta Bowl winning quarterback boyfriend.

In fact, the Fiesta Bowl pregame show even did a feature on this.  And it came up again at the NFL Scouting Combine. It has been revealed that Lindsey Duke will attend the NFL Draft.
