It gets worse for NFL quarterbacks. The influx of athletic pass rushers far outstrips this year’s supply of upper-tier offensive tackles. Passers’ blindsides will be less stable than ever — and there’s little help coming from this year’s rookie class to keep pockets from collapsing.
Here’s a look at the best and worst positions in the 2017 NFL draft.
Listen, neither you nor I knows how to diagnose footwork and whatever as well as we’d like to, most likely. So let’s just stay in our lanes. I’ve watched him with my delighted eyeballs in real football games, but I’m also not very smart.
“But he threw all those interceptions.”
OK. Yeah! He did throw a bunch. In 2012, every college fan would’ve told you to draft Russell Wilson before Ryan Tannehill.
This isn’t revisionism. I remember seeing universally astonished college fans when the former Texas A&M wide receiver went No. 8 to the Dolphins and Wilson, the NC State/Wisconsin miracle worker, lasted until No. 75.
That year, college fans would’ve also stanned for players like T.Y. Hilton, Lavonte David, Vontaze Burfict, Nick Foles, and Alshon Jeffery, all of whom made at least one Pro Bowl as non-first-rounders. College fans would’ve nailed 2012.
His 30 INTs over the last two seasons came in 1,070 attempts, or one Cheap Lebron Jerseys every 35.7 throws. That’s about the same as DeShone Kizer’s 36.6, a step behind Mahomes’ 46.6, and Cheap Kids Football Jerseys well behind Kaaya’s 67.5 and Trubisky’s single-season 74.5.
