Miles Boykin: Notre Dame WR Could Still Go Round 2 of the NFL Draft

It remains to be seen whether Notre Dame wide receiver Miles Boykin will be a day two or day three guy in the upcoming NFL Draft, but the second round is a definite possibility for him. It may also be his ceiling, given how deep and talented the wide receiver class is this time around. 

Having emphatically answered the number one question NFL teams had about him, his speed and ability to separate, there seems to be a strong, perhaps bordering on certain, sentiment that he’ll go within the first four rounds. Wednesday was Notre Dame Pro Day, and Miles Boykin caught passes from from former Fighting Irish QB and current Quarterbacks Coach Tommy Rees:

When it comes to the NFL Draft stock of Notre Dame cornerback Julian Love, his body of work on the field speaks for itself. The Jim Thorpe award finalist was, many would argue, the best cover corner in college football this past season. 

You can see that in just how much the trajectory of the Cotton Bowl semifinal against Clemson changed when he left the game due to injury.

jerry tillery

All 32 NFL teams were represented at Notre Dame Pro Day yesterday with interior defensive lineman Jerry Tillery not able to physically participate in drills as he continued his recovery from surgery to repair the torn labrum he suffered early this season.

Once Notre Dame Pro Day activities were completed, Tillery met with the media where he made it clear that he’s “feeling amazing” two weeks after the procedure, and that his shoulder status is currently “outstanding.” During the week heading into the NFL Scouting Combine it was revealed that Tillery suffered the tear back in September, in a home win over Stanford.

In February, eight basketball players from the University of Mississippi knelt during the national anthem in order to protest two confederate sympathizer groups who had gathered on their college campus. The hate groups’ rallies were formed in support of a sculpture of a confederate soldier on the school’s campus. Regardless, the Ole Miss players’ silent protest stirred up some controversy around the sports media world.

nfl draft

We have 2020 vision, NFL Draft style, for the first time, right here, right now. It’s our first ever 2020 NFL mock draft, and the order, for now was simply replicated from 2019. Team needs, nor the 2019 NFL mock draft (which you can view over at this link), were taken into account.

As we have a whole draft, and two rounds of free agency to go through, it’s just too early to factor in team needs. Obviously this will be modified and reworked hundreds, if not thousands of times between now and 2020 NFL Draft day. Enjoy!

Two huge football games are taking place today, thousands of miles apart, but with one major commonality- Kroenke family ownership. Both Arsenal football club, who play at Manchester City in the Premier League’s biggest match this weekend and the Los Angeles Rams, who face the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl, are financial holdings within the Kroenke business empire.

It’s going to be a big day for the Kroenkes, in both English football and American football. Arsenal director Josh Kroenke, son of club owner Stan Kroenke, said in an interview with the Telegraph that he sees similarities between Rams coach Sean McVay and Arsenal manager Unai Emery.

New England Patriots Least Liked Dynasty, Chicago Bulls Most Liked, Poll Says

With four Super Bowl appearances in the last five and 10 of the last 17, it’s understandable if you have New England Patriots fatigue at this point. In fact, you may be so sick of the Patriots right now that it’s turning you off from watching the Super Bowl on Sunday.
On the hand, the explosion of legalized sports gambling in the United States and expanded Super Bowl prop betting will make this game “interesting” for those who are sick of the Pats.

And if you are one of those sports fans who has grown weary of Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and company, well a Morning Consult poll shows that you are not alone.

New England Patriots Dynasty Creating Fatigue for Super Bowl Viewers

If you’re a New England Patriots fan, then you are currently living in a golden age that doesn’t show any sign of ceasing any time soon. However, if you follow any of the other 31 NFL teams, you’ve almost certainly grown fatigued of the Patriots by this point.

The Pats will face off against the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII on Sunday, marking their fourth trip in the last five years and 10th in the last 17. Under the ownership of Bob Kraft, the New England Patriots have won 18 division titles, 10 conference titles, and five Super Bowl championships – more than any other team over the last 25 years.

New U.S. Betting Markets Will Keep Super Bowl 53 “Interesting” for Many

super bowl liii

You know the old catch-phrase: “care to make things interesting?” It’s what you say when you’re asking someone to bet against you on something. In recent years, we’ve seen a major shift in the interests of NFL consumers. More football watchers are becoming fans of their own fantasy teams and/or whatever team they’ve wagered on.

It keeps things engaged when the team they support is irrelevant. Super Bowl LIII, or Super Bowl 53, is poised to be the perfect game to test this theory. The New England Patriots are in the NFL championship game for the fourth time in five years and 10th of the last 17. The familiarity is breeding contempt as fans are tired of seeing the same side over and over and over and over again.

Revisiting “Let’s Ram It,” the L.A. Rams Sexually Suggestive 1986 Music Video

With the Los Angeles Rams now back in the Super Bowl, it’s the perfect time to revisit their 1986 music video “Let’s Ram It,” which didn’t exactly specialize in the art of subtlety.

Remember, when the L.A. Rams recorded this monstrosity it was a very different time and political climate. When the Rams moved back to L.A. a couple of years ago, the internet’s virtual time capsule was dug up and “Let’s Ram it” was written about in several different publications.  [Read more…]
