2018 NFL Draft Class Rankings

I previously promised a more in-depth look at my plus-minus system; Here it is in my ranking of the draft classes from the 2018 NFL Draft. The plus-minus system reflects the overall value of each teams’ collective drafts. The greater the plus is, the greater a value a team got. The minuses are reaches-players who were drafted earlier than they should have been. The the greater a minus is, the more consistently and/or greatly a team reached throughout the draft.

2018 NFL Draft Caps

Image result for nfl draft

Every April, NFL and NCAAF fans experience the excitement that is the NFL Draft.

College football fans can’t wait to see how many players will get drafted from their favorite university, who those players will be, when those players will get drafted, and where those players will go.

NFL fans can’t wait to see who’s got next for their favorite franchise. Fans of teams with the highest draft picks are hoping for a franchise QB that will lead their team to the playoffs and the Super Bowl for a decade and a half (or longer), and fans of teams with lower draft picks are hoping for that one perfect pick that fills the hole that would prevent them from continuing and building upon their success from the previous season.

New League Year’s Day is in March but in the football world, Christmas comes after that, in late April and early May, in the form of the NFL Draft.

It’s important to remember family during the holiday season, and in the case of Football Christmas, that family is your team: the players, the coaches, the owner(s), the trainers, the food vendors, and of course, your fellow fans.

Just like traditional Christmas, Football Christmas wouldn’t be complete without commercialization…I mean, uh…wonderful presents that embody the true meaning of Christmas 😉 Obviously, draft picks are the presents to which all of us football fans look forward to the most:

  • Most of them will turn out to be those crappy toys that break within five minutes of you taking them out of the box (draft busts). Bummer. But…
  • A small number of them will be worthwhile. Maybe you’ll get an average starter-level player that hangs around for 10 years; Those are the toys that aren’t our favorites. They weren’t THE item on our list, but they are last for long enough and are just enjoyable enough that we grow to appreciate them. Maybe they’ll even get a Pro Bowl nod or two?
  • Then an even smaller number of them are the quality players; These still weren’t THE gift on our list, but we definitely wanted them and are pleased the moment we open them. They are the toys we play with on a regular basis, but not every day. They’ll likely get several Pro Bowl nods and maybe even a spot on an All-Pro team.
  • Then, the most rare of all: THE gift. This isn’t just the top toy we wanted this year, it’s the top toy we’ve wanted the last FIVE years. Not only do we play with these toys everyday, but we can hardly go anywhere without them: The Hall of Famers. These are your franchise QBs like Peyton Manning, Dan Marino, and Tom Brady. These are your electrifying offensive players like Jerry Rice, Barry Sanders, and Shannon Sharpe. These are your game-altering defenders like Lawrence Taylor, Ray Lewis, and Rod Woodson. They’ll make the Pro Bowl almost every year (if not literally every year) and they’ll also make multiple All-Pro teams. Maybe they’ll even win a MVP award?

Yes, toys are awesome. But, sometimes you get stuck with clothes. Well, I’m here to tell you that in the case of Football Christmas, clothes can actually be a little exciting. I’m talking about the annual NFL Draft Caps brought to fans (and to draftees) by New Era. (For the record, I’m not sponsored by them or anything, I just happen to be a big fan of their quality. I don’t recall ever having gotten a New Era cap that I didn’t enjoy.) The 2018 NFL Draft Caps were just recently revealed and well, they deserve to be talked about.

This year’s theme: Team Mottos. Below are some of my favorites and least favorites. If you want to get one for yourself or check out ones that I do not mention, you can find all of them here.

Image result for new york giants

Favorites

  1. New York Giants: “Big Blue”- Obviously,  I had to mention my team’s hat. “Big Blue” is a nickname the Giants have had for ages and I think it looks great on a hat.
  2. New York Jets: “J-E-T-S”- Not even leaving the same stadium from the last one on my list, I love the Jets hat. The motto is their team’s chant. It’s not exactly the most original chant, but it’s a classic.
  3. Seattle Seahawks: “We are 12”- I like this one a lot because the hat features the 12 flag as part of the slogan. The Seahawks are the only team to use something besides words and their team logo in their Draft Cap’s design.
  4. Cleveland Browns: “Dawg Pound”- Another classic slogan makes my list. Also, aside from their logo, this hat is devoid of that ugly orange team color.
  5. Chicago Bears: “Monsters of the Midway”- Though the team has recently lacked the ability to incite fear that is usually associated with monsters, it’s another classic slogan.
  6. Buffalo Bills: “Billieve”- The greatness of the play on the word believe is just the tip of the iceberg when you consider the fact that the “bill” is actually a physical part of the hat. This one actually made me laugh.

Image result for pittsburgh steelers

Least Favorites

  1. Pittsburgh Steelers: “Steel City”- Yes, Pittsburgh is the Steel City, but the Steelers are the Steel Curtain. C’mon New Era!
  2. Miami Dolphins: “Go Phins”- The Jets hat lacks originality in a fun way. The Dolphins hat lacks originality in a boring way.
  3. New England Patriots: “Do Your Job”- I can hear these words coming out of Coach Bill Belichick‘s mouth, but that doesn’t make them fun or interesting to put on a hat unless there is a likeness to Belichick right next to them, which (SPOILER ALERT!), there is not.
  4. Jacksonville Jaguars: “Black and Teal”- Congratulations, you can name colors.
  5. Arizona Cardinals: “Rise Up Red Sea”- So, they stole the Atlanta Falcons “Rise Up” slogan, and decided that stealing wasn’t bad enough, they should also make it sound dumber.
  6. Houston Texans: “We Are Texans”- I am human. I don’t think I need to put that on a hat to make that true.

NFL Offseason 2018: The Veteran Cuts

I love March in the NFL. I get chills and goosebumps reading about some of the trades and free agent signings that go down this time of year. In fact, you could make the argument that it’s the best time of the year for the NFL. How is it better than Thursday, Sunday, and Monday gamedays? It’s the one time of year that fans for all teams have hope. Browns fans get to rejoice over their team’s acquisition of a new QB and Patriots fans get to smile mischievously about Bill Belichick’s latest under-the-radar move that will inevitably lead them to another Super Bowl. Of course, with trades and free agency comes the sad truth of quality players leaving fan bases that had become accustomed to seeing them playing for their team, all in the name of salary cap space. While many cuts will come in the next few days before the free agency period begins on March 14, here’s a look at some veteran cuts that have happened so far in the last month…

NFL Offseason 2018: The Los Angeles Rams

I love March in the NFL. I get chills and goosebumps reading about some of the trades and free agent signings that go down this time of year. In fact, you could make the argument that it’s the best time of the year for the NFL. How is it better than Thursday, Sunday, and Monday gamedays? It’s the one time of year that fans for all teams have hope. Browns fans get to rejoice over their team’s acquisition of a new QB and Patriots fans get to smile mischievously about Bill Belichick’s latest under-the-radar move that will inevitably lead them to another Super Bowl. Every March, some teams make several HUGE splashes. This March, one of those teams is…

The LOS ANGELES RAMS. I’ll start out by pointing out the fact that I was 100% CORRECT on MY FRANCHISE TAG PREDICTIONS (well, technically CHICAGO BEARS CB KYLE FULLER was transition tagged, which isn’t a full franchise tag, but it is a type of franchise tag. I’ll knock my percentage down to 95%). Why am I pointing this out here? The Rams tagged S LAMARCUS JOYNER, who is likely going to be the longest tenured member of the Rams secondary next season which will see at least three new faces…

 

 

  1. CB MARCUS PETERS, who the Rams will acquire from the KANSAS CITY CHIEFS via trade
  2. CB AQIB TALIB, who the Rams will aquire from the DENVER BRONCOS via trade
  3. CB SAM SHIELDS, who the Rams have agreed to terms with via free agency

Image result for marcus peters

What does this mean? Well, the Rams’ pass defense should be a Top 5 unit next season if 3 conditions are met (1 for each of the newly-acquired Rams):

  1. Peters needs to fix his attitude. Remember his antics during the Chiefs’ game against the NEW YORK JETS this past season? He threw a penalty flag into the stands. The Rams are a young team and if Peters does that sort of thing in LA, it could spread to the rest of the team and become a distraction.
  2. Talib needs to not show signs of age. Talib is 32 years old, which is around the age at which many CBs begin to get burned on a regular basis and either retire or switch to S.
  3. Shields needs to stay healthy. Shields was previously a member of the GREEN BAY PACKERS, who have probably the worst defensive secondary in the NFL. Why did they let Shields leave? He had multiple concussions during his tenure in Wisconsin. Obviously, he needs to stay on the field to be effective.

The new faces all but guarantee that soon-to-be-free-agent CBs TRUMAINE JOHNSON and NICKELL ROBEY-COLEMAN will suit up for new teams this fall.

Fine For Matt Forte

Image result for matt forte

That’s pronounced [fee’-nay]: the musical term marking the end of a composition. Just a little play on his last name which is also a musical term. Anyway…

One of my friends is a CHICAGO BEARS fan and I can only assume his day yesterday was completely normal when the news broke of…

MATT FORTE‘s retirement. It’s not that he doesn’t like Matt Forte, it’s just that he’s one of those people who’s under the impression that, “It’s not what you have done for me, it’s what you can do for me.” (I confess, I have this opinion when it comes to most players. Unless they win a championship for my team. Yes, that means I hope ELI MANNING never retires. He could play a LOT longer if he didn’t get hit all the time. C’mon o-line!) Alas, Forte never won a Super Bowl (in fact, he only made it to the playoffs once), so he was basically just another player to my friend when he left Chicago after the 2015 NFL season.

One of the best pass-catching running backs in the league throughout his career, Forte played 10 seasons in the NFL, the first 8 of which were in Chicago before he spent the previous 2 seasons with the NEW YORK JETS. The 2-time pro-bowler racked up 9796 yards and 54 touchdowns on the ground, in addition to 4672 yards and 21 touchdowns through the air.

Good News: I have not fallen off the face of the Earth! And I return today to comment on the biggest story in sports right now…

The SACRAMENTO KINGS SUCK!

Just Kidding. Obviously the big story is SHAUN WHITE (I’ll get to that momentarily). I apologize to any readers who may be Kings fans (if there are any left, and sorry again), I needed an easy punchline and, well, if you’re a Kings fan you know… But the good news for you if you are a Kings fan is that your team is not the worst team in professional sports (or even in the NBA…I may get to that in a minute…or not…). That label belongs to…

The 2017 0-16 CLEVELAND BROWNS!!! Congratulations Cleveland, you have joined the 2008 DETROIT LIONS atop Mount Lose-more. (See what I did there?) The difference between this season’s Browns team and the ’08 Lions team is that the 0-16 record probably isn’t the most embarrassing thing that’s happened to the poor Browns. That honor is held by the Browns’ QB circus over the last two decades. Think about how much fun the media had with the NEW YORK JETS‘ QB situation in the late 2000’s-early 2010’s and compare it to the Browns’ last two decades of QBs. It’s so bad that the media stopped talking about it…well, except every time the Browns get a new QB. Speaking of which…

Image result for nfl draft logo 2018

The 2018 NFL DRAFT will probably be the next time that happens (barring Cleveland winning the KIRK COUSINS sweepstakes in a SHOCKING upset in free agency). The question is: Who will it be? The popular pick among mock draft idiots (I mean, experts…even though they’re not that much more accurate than my wild and pretty uneducated projections usually are) seems to be SAM DARNOLD out of USC…for some reason that I can’t wrap my head around. I don’t think any of the draft analysis I’ve read says that Darnold is actually the best QB in this draft class (that title most often appears next to JOSH ROSEN out of UCLA). Maybe everyone has just written Cleveland off as incapable of making the right decision. But someone who did make the right decision…

SHAUN WHITE. The man who has come closer than most to breaking social media. Congratulations! For those of you who have not seen his gold-winning run, I HIGHLY encourage you to check it out. It was truly amazing to watch and, to the untrained viewer (like me) it honestly looked perfect. I don’t know what the judges saw that prevented him from getting a full 100 points (probably why I’m just a spectator and they are judging the WINTER OLYMPICS), but 97.75 is still UNBELIEVABLE and it got him his 3rd gold medal in 4 trips to the Winter Olympics. White is the first American male to win gold at three separate Winter Olympics. He is beyond special on a snowboard, much like…

The rest of the 2018 USA WINTER OLYMPIC TEAM, which is now 4/4 for gold medals in snowboarding events. Along with Shaun White in MEN’S HALFPIPE, CHLOE KIM won gold in WOMEN’S HALFPIPE, RED GERARD won gold in MEN’S SLOPESTYLE, and JAMIE ANDERSON won gold in WOMEN’S SLOPESTYLE. Oh, and the US Snowboarding team also added a bronze medal with ARIELLE GOLD placing third in women’s halfpipe. An all-around phenomenal effort from the US Snowboarders. Fun Fact: Snowboarders account for all four gold medals that the US has won so far in Pyeongchang.

Colin Kaepernick: Will the Traveling Circus End?

Image result for colin kaepernick

Ever since it was announced that QB Colin Kaepernick would be leaving the San Francisco 49ers, people have been speculating about his fate. Obviously he would get signed in free agency, right? He’s the best QB option available, isn’t he? Then, March 9, the official start of NFL free agency, passed. Then the rest of March…April…May…June…and now July has almost concluded and Kaep has still yet to find a new football home. I read an article today about the Baltimore Ravens needing another QB option with Joe Flacco sustaining a back injury that is projected to keep him out for at least three weeks. Of course, Kaep’s name came up because Ravens HC John Harbaugh knows about Kaep from his brother, Jim Harbaugh, having coached Kaep in San Fran. Oh, and they played against each other in a Super Bowl, so there’s that.

I decided, what the heck, I’ll project what will happen with Kaep, too. So here are a few spots I think he might end up:

7. Denver Broncos– I HIGHLY doubt GM John Elway would sign a guy with Kaep’s antics. And the salary cap probably isn’t conducive to a Kaep signing in Denver. And Elway seems to see something in Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch that the rest of the world doesn’t see. But I don’t see what Elway sees so screw it, I’m putting Denver in here anyway.

Image result for colin kaepernick raiders
Colin, you’ll never usurp me as starter.

6. Las Vegas Raiders– I know that they are still the Oakland Raiders for the next couple of seasons but I put Las Vegas there for a very specific reason: Kaep played his college ball in Nevada, and he was good (good enough to beat what was probably the best Boise State football team to ever take the field in 2010). Even though he would only be a backup to Derek Carr, I’m sure the Raiders could bring in some extra revenue by having the local boy ride the bench and play in preseason.

Image result for colin kaepernick cardinals
Only after I retire, Colin.

5. Arizona Cardinals– If there is one thing that we all learned from the Cards’ 2016-17 season, it’s that Carson Palmer is not getting any younger. Granted, part of the reason he looked so bad last year was because he looked so good in the 2015-16 season. Regardless, he is 37 years old and I don’t think he is on the Tom Brady diet and workout routine that will allow him to play well into his 40s. Also, Bruce Arians is known as a QB whisperer (see Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Andrew Luck, and…well…Carson Palmer). What’s wrong with this possibility? Blaine Gabbert is listed as the 3rd QB on the Cards depth chart and there were several times where he looked better than Kaep in San Francisco. So this one probably isn’t very likely. But it would be fun to see Kaep playing for (theoretically) a contender again.

Image result for colin kaepernick jets
Nice of Geno to leave me his jersey.

4. New York Jets– Nothing can save the 2017-18 New York Jets. NOTHING. If this team wins more than 2 games, with or without Kaep, I would be SHOCKED. That said, Kaep could be the interesting, controversial player that the Jets need to get any sort of fans to show up to view their train wreck in person.

Image result for colin kaepernick jaguars
Chad, I think you’ve got my jersey there.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars– I honestly feel as though this scenario hasn’t been talked about at all even though it’s a pretty interesting scenario. Maybe it’s because the Jags have been dumping so much money into their defense that they likely don’t have enough for Kaep. But follow me for a second: Let’s say the Jags decide to finally give up on “franchise QB” Blake Bortles. Kaep would join an offense with 2017 first-round pick RB Leonard Fournette, promising young WRs Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns, and a solid o-line with 2017 second-round pick Cam Robinon, up-and-comer AJ Cann, veteran Branden Albert, and the highest-paid C in NFL history, Brandon Linder. That, plus the part about the money that the Jags have been pouring into their defense would make for an easy job for Kaep. But, then, that job is supposed to be easy for Bortles, too. He makes it look IMMENSELY difficult.

Image result for colin kaepernick ravens
Calm down, Colin. I’ll only be out for a few weeks.

2. Baltimore Ravens– (see the first paragraph of this article) He’d mostly be a temp in this scenario.

1. Retirement– Let’s be honest, this is far and away the most realistic scenario on this list. The league has turned his back on him because of his controversial pregame national anthem antics. The National Football League prides itself on being patriotic (hence the annual “Salute to Service” week), and Kaep certainly isn’t. The anti-Kaep sentiment doesn’t just run amongst NFL front offices, either. Fans of teams who have been working out Kaepernick have been protesting against his signing, including his most recently visited team (just a couple days ago), Baltimore.

Darrelle Revis Assault and Standing Strong Alone

I appreciate the support and I hope you guys enjoy reading my content as much as I enjoy writing. Whether it’s the highs or lows of life or in sports, you guys consistently show up. Thank you!

Darrelle Revis. There’s a lot to cover with just that one name. The New York Jets CB and future Hall of Famer has been talked about a LOT over the last year, and most of it has not been good. Well, it has gotten worse. Darrelle Revis was charged with four felonies and a misdemeanor tonight. The news is coming on the heels of an altercation in Pittsburgh Darrelle Revis allegedly got into over the weekend, in which he punched two guys, rendering them unconscious. He has still yet to turn himself in to the police. Revis is already skating on thin ice in New York after a dismal performance during the 2016 season, despite his offer to move to S. There has been a lot of speculation about the New York Jets getting rid of him this offseason. I was on the fence until this encounter. Now, I don’t see the New York Jets as having a choice. They need to move into rebuilding mode now with the age of their roster, and getting rid of Darrelle Revis will be part of that. Might as well do it now, rather than later.

#24: Loneliness, Harry Potter, and More

Alright, so, after a very uneventful weekend, I’ve got a couple of things on my mind:

First of all, I’d like to rant AGAINST Harry Potter. I read a post from another blogger the other day, professing their love for JK Rowling and Harry Potter…well, I read part of it until I began to feel a wave of nausea wash over me… :\. Anyway, my point is this: Harry Potter is unbelievably overrated. First, the books. Oh my gosh, the books. I have attempted to read the first one AT LEAST five times. I have never gotten more than halfway through it. It is SO boring. Seriously, Moby Dick is less detailed than Harry Potter and, for the record, Moby Dick is much more well-written, and the story is more entertaining. Now, I will grant that detailed books are an acquired taste; I know some people like more detail, so the boring books aren’t my only evidence for the disaster that is Harry Potter. This is where I move on to the movies. Frankly, they were just another lousy attempt to make a ridiculous amount of money. The first few technically had the best stories, but they were ruined by the acting performances. Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson were not yet good, as they were still too young. In fact, they had Star Wars-prequel-level acting performances. Yeah, they were THAT bad. Luckily, Radcliffe figured out how to act for the last few movies, and Emma Watson matured enough to be good-looking, so the audience could understand the whole, obligatory love story that EVERY movie must have these days. Unfortunately, the last few movies were ruined by stretching out the story and overused special effects. Deathly Hallows Parts 1 and 2 were all the proof that we needed for that. Also, think about the character of Harry Potter: He is a whiny, over-privileged kid, who is basically just out for his revenge against the monster who killed his parents and almost killed him. Does that really sound like a protagonist/hero type? I’d say he’s the antagonist/villain. Which makes the whole series some big, twisted joke, I suppose. Maybe Rowling intended it that way? If that is the case, then Rowling is much smarter than I thought. Regardless, Voldemort could have saved us all a lot of trouble if he had been able to kill Harry Potter before the story even began.

Second of all, another win-win-win weekend. A victory for Boise State on Friday, a victory for the New York Giants today, and a victory for the Portland Trail Blazers today. Also, I was psyched to find out that, if the NFL season ended today, the Giants would have the 5th seed in the playoffs. That’s pretty good, considering they haven’t made the playoffs since 2011-12, when they won Super Bowl 46.

Image result for victory

Those weren’t the only games I watched today, though. I watched two different games with two different DU friends. I watched the Indianapolis Colts-Green Bay Packers game with my friend, Maddie. She’s a Packers fan, so she didn’t really appreciate the outcome of that game. Inside, however, I was psyched. If the Packers had won, they would be in the 5th seed in the NFC right now, and the Giants would be relegated to the 6th seed. The second game I watched was the Denver Broncos-Oakland Raiders game, with my friend, Ben. He’s a Raiders fan, so he was PSYCHED. For those of you who are unaware, the Raiders victory in that game put them in 1st place in the highly-contested AFC West. Surprisingly, no Broncos fans joined me and Ben in watching that game, even though they are the local team. Maybe Ben’s Raiders jersey scared them off?

 

Changing gears a little, I figured I would talk about a slightly…heavier?…topic: loneliness. It’s always fascinating to me when I read some tweets from former classmates about wishing they could have a special someone in their lives. Of course, those tweets tend to be from women because, for us men, society deems it “unmanly” to be vulnerable like that. Well, ladies, I’m here to tell you that you are not alone. I don’t know how many other guys will admit this vulnerability, too, but we are also lonely. I know what it’s like to be in a relationship, and, while there are some drawbacks, it ultimately seems worth it. I thought about this when my roommate came back this morning from another one of his one-night stands; He’s had so many that I think he’s lost count. But, he told me that he doesn’t know much about relationships because he hasn’t ever had a true girlfriend. Well, I can honestly say that I know nothing about one-night stands, but I would assume that they aren’t meaningful like true relationships are. On a side note, it seems like a lot of people here at DU have a boyfriend or a girlfriend back home. It also seems like a lot of them are unfaithful. In fact, one of my DU friends is not loyal to his girlfriend back home, but I will leave him unnamed. If that’s the kind of person he wants to be, that’s his choice. Anyway, it’s hard to know who’s available when you don’t party (like me), and when there are people who are concealing other relationships. I’m not going to help a girl cheat on her boyfriend back home. I don’t even get how people could be okay with themselves for doing that sort of thing. I still feel some sense of loyalty to my ex (which is why I reference her in this blog more often than I would like, and here’s another example), even though I owe her nothing. Essentially, the struggle with loneliness is quite real for most people.

Image result for loneliness
Why don’t people truly appreciate the kind, smiling, and wise people? Anyway, this is so true (except the sad-brightest smile one; I smile brightly, and I’m not usually sad. Of course, it’s possible that I don’t smile as brightly as I think I do?), and it makes the next quote make even less sense:
Image result for loneliness
I don’t understand why the selfless people get the short end of the stick. Maybe this is the ultimate example of how life is unfair?

On a MUCH lighter note, I was thinking about getting a Damian Lillard jersey because I only have one Trail Blazers shirt right now, and I don’t want to wear that two days in a row when the Blazers have back-to-back gamedays. Thoughts?

New York Jets

Image result for new york jets

Founded: 1960

All-Time Winning Percentage: 45.9%

All-Time Record: (365-431-8)

Sorry, mom, but you know they haven’t been good, historically. They have just one Super Bowl win, and that was “The Guarantee”, Super Bowl III. Also, the list of Jets legends includes: QB Joe Namath, RB Curtis Martin, and…that’s all I’ve got. If you can think of any Jets legends, list them in the comments; They can’t be current players that will go down as legends (meaning C Nick Mangold and CB Darrelle Revis don’t count). Anyway, that Super Bowl and a few runs to the AFC championship are the only thing holding the Jets at #24. On a side note, this season continues to get rougher for the Jets. They lost to the Miami Dolphins today, and their best quality (their run defense) allowed over 100 yards to RB Jay Ajayi. On a side^2 note, Ajayi has proven for the 3rd straight game that, not only is he a legit starting RB in the NFL, but he’s one of the best at the moment.

That’s all for TheHaysWay today, make sure to leave a comment on Harry Potter and/or on Boise State and/or on the New York Giants and/or on the Portland Trail Blazers and/or on watching football with friends and/or on loneliness and/or on a Damian Lillard jersey and/or on the New York Jets, along with a much-appreciated like.
