So many mock drafts, so much draft analysis, so many shows previewing future NFL talent and yet many teams botch the NFL draft yearly and remain bottom feeders. Who’s the three teams that will go for the “reach pick” or “pick for need” and continue their recent trend of bad draft nights? Many of these teams literally could’ve done better for themselves if they had just followed some of the better mock drafts out there.
3. Los Angeles Rams: Drafting Todd Gurley, Greg Robinson and Jared Goff are just some examples on why the Rams have been bad for so many seasons. Les Snead has hit on some players over the years, but hasn’t shown any talent in bringing offensive play-makers to SoCal at all. Without a first round pick this draft, look for the Rams to bring in more blah, meh, ho-hum draft picks and give the Chargers every opportunity to become the “It” team in LA.
2. Cleveland Browns: Have the Browns really shown they are anything but inept? Will the Harvard Connection “Moneyball” themselves to some good choices? This team could’ve had Carson Wentz at QB, but instead are still trying to find a QB. I fully expect this front office to outsmart themselves and quite possibly trade their guaranteed Myles Garrett pick away and then reach for a risky quarterback prospect like DeShone Kizer.
1. New York Jets: In the past, this spot was reserved for Trent Baalke, but now it’s setup for the J E T S. They haven’t been the worst drafting team over the years, but their recent QB choices are all you need to know (Petty, Hackenberg, Geno, Boyd) yikes! Mike Maccagnan can’t be serious with the QBs he has on the roster so I look for them to desperately move up a few spots to land Trubisky because they’ll be worried he won’t be available at #6 (and thus giving up draft picks and thinning their draft class). They’ll pick a QB who’ll be immediately thrown into the fire and face New York media circus daily, a recipe for failure for sure.
