nfl draft

It’s 2019 NFL mock draft time! The order is now set, up until the divisional round of the playoffs. Team needs were sometimes, but often not taken into account, as it’s still early for a 2019 mock draft in the purest sense.

A true 2019 NFL mock draft can’t really be composed until after 2019 free agency. Have issues with the picks? Of course you do! Many often bones to pick, so have at it in the comments section. Just try to not be like the others who hurl insults and instead keep it classy and professional. Sure, this disclaimer will go completely ignored, as it always does, but I’ll say it anyway- “THERE IS NO NEED FOR NAME CALLING!”

Tottenham Hotspur striker Fernando Llorente faced a massive task today- try and fill the shoes of all world striker and talisman Harry Kane. It did not go well, as he opened the scoring in the fixture against Fulham, by scoring FOR the opponent in the 17′.

Dele Alli would equalize for Spurs in the second half, and Harry Winks scored the game winner three minutes into extra time, saving the day for Llorente. A loss to the penultimate side in the table would have been a complete disaster for Spurs, and a draw would have been essentially on par with a loss in this instance.
