Future NFL QB Paxton Lynch Has a Cool New Artist Rendering

Memphis Tigers

Former Memphis QB Paxton Lynch could go as high as #20 to the New York Jets in the NFL Draft Thursday night. He might also land with Kansas City or Denver in the first round. Carson Wentz and Jared Goff will be the first two quarterbacks taken. Quite possibly #1 and #2 overall.

Lynch will be the third.

nfl-mock-draft

Kansas State guard Cody Whitehair has become a popular name for the upcoming  NFL Draft. He will certainly improve any team’s NFL betting picks as he is a proven star at this position. The guard position has become especially important recently. This is due to the middle area of the offensive line dealing with a great deal of pressure that can be difficult to manage.

2016 NFL mock draft 12-8-15

joey-bosa--ohio-state-football

This 2016 NFL mock draft order is loosely based off the order derived at SB Nation. They took current record plus strength of schedule into account. We then made a few changes based on how current injuries could impact the team and their final season record.

Team needs were sometimes, but not always taken into account. We played fast and loose with that because it’s still quite early. So many of these picks are “Best player available.”

2015 NFL Draft Town Chicago: everything you need to know

nfl draft town

UPDATE: new photos of Draft Town from the areas not yet open to the public. Media Preview at this link

Having the NFL Draft in Chicago could be the greatest thing since sliced bread. (“Sliced bread having been invented the previous winter” -Abe Simpson)

Or it could be an enormous disaster that will spawn dozens of horrifying headlines.

Or something in between.

Or all of these things all at the same time.

Because Draft Town, a ginormous fan fest that’s never been done in concordance with the NFL Draft, only with the Super Bowl, will be lab tested with Chicago as its petri dish.

Chicago is a city known for graft, corruption, police brutality, public intoxication and a sometimes dysfunctional obsession with sports. Yes, you could say the same exact thing about most big cities, but hey, what could go wrong?

NFL Draft Town photo preview, Draft nuggets and tidbits

2015-nfl-mock-draft-town-paul-m-banks

We previewed NFL Draft Town in detail earlier this week. However, that wasn’t enough. The NFL Draft is such a huge sporting event that it’s actually two sporting events. It’s the only day on the calendar that unites all NFL fans, and all college football fans.

It’s the only sporting event that actually airs on two networks. And viewership and interest continues to grow larger every year! So we had to do a second Draft Town, NFL Draft fest preview. Yesterday, we stopped by and got a chance to see some areas that aren’t open to the public yet.

Mike Mayock: only adult here evaluating Jameis Winston

mike mayock randy gregory

Endless hours of NFL Draft analysis on every network and yet we hear so little about what matters most. It seems like it’s a consensus now- Jameis Winston is going first overall to Tampa Bay. Yes, Jameis Winston, who’s facing a civil suit over an alleged rape.

Winston, who’s initial rape charges were reduced to sexual assault charges only because school and local authorities were lax in investigating. Not to make a Federal case out of this, but, oh yeah that’s right, there is a Federal investigation into how Tallahassee and Florida State police handled the Jameis Winston rape charges.

And just about every media figure, outside of NFL Network’s Mike Mayock, just “doesn’t get it.”

Mayock is figuratively, the only adult here when it comes to evaluating Winston.

Exploring every Marcus Mariota NFL Draft scenario possible

marcus-mariota

Marcus Mariota will likely go first or second overall in this draft. The former Oregon Ducks QB is a tremendous wild card; on numerous levels. This is also the first NFL Draft in which Chip Kelly has absolute power in building his Philadelphia Eagles roster. That makes this draft one of the least predictable ever.

Kelly’s ways and Mariota’s presence means your NFL mock draft will likely get shredded into a million little pieces on Thursday night.
