Another day, another no-brainer fifth-year option exercised in the NFL.
Aikman didn’t do quite as well as Herbstreit in his first NFL Draft gig. But his gravitas added a lot to Fox/NFL Network’s coverage. As a three-time Super Bowl winner, and former No. 1 overall pick himself, the former Cowboys QB expertly summed up the strengths and weaknesses of top QB’s like Mayfield, Darnold, Josh Allen and Josh Rosen.
Game Kids Greg Olsen Jersey While Aikman thought Darnold should have went No. 1, he noted Mayfield is no Johnny Manziel.
Mayfield has a much better arm than Johnny Manziel ever thought of having, noted Aikman. He wouldn’t be surprised if Mayfield’s starting for Oakland Raiders Jersey the Browns in Week 1.
If Goodell provided the funniest moment, the most inspiring moment was watching Ryan Shazier walk across the stage to announce the Steelers No. 1 pick. The former linebacker is continuing his brave recovery from cripping injury. Shazier has impressed many with his never-give-up attitude.
Oh my God. Ryan Shazier is walking out to the podium, tweeted NFL Insider Ian Rapoport of NFL Network from AT&T Stadium. Not a lot of dry eyes here. This place went nuts.
Youth Steve Smith Sr Jersey We were just talking, having a conversation and he was just giggling, said Jackson, who didn’t remember how he got Belichick to crack. He started laughing and I was like, ‘Oh snap!’
He was cool, laid back. He just wanted to talk.
While Jackson is not in the group of the top-four quarterbacks 鈥?Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield and Josh Rosen 鈥?bunched at the top of most draft boards, his stock has seemed to rise recently with more reports linking him to the Patriots, who have picks No. 23 and 31.
New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels came down to South Florida to work out Jackson as well.
Orlando Brown’s Combine performance might have been the joke of the week, but his height and frame make him an enticing prospect who could be placed an immediate starting position on the Ravens’ line. His father’s legacy doesn’t hurt, either.
Maryland’s J.C. Jackson or Alabama’s Anthony Averett could serve as important additions to the secondary. If all those boxes get checked, there’s room to pick a running back, and Bo Scarbrough would be a good middle-round fit.
