Actual kind of real-life sports, happening this week (Thursday night to be precise)! REMOTELY.
Yes, the glitz and glamour of the NFL draft that was meant to happen in Vegas and involve players riding a boat across the Bellagio fountains (incredible) will now consist of old men in pyjamas on the world’s most cologne-heavy Zoom call.
Conventional wisdom holds that the Bengals will take one year wunderkind Joe Burrow with the number one pick, while Washington will nab the consensus best player Chase Young at two. After that, it’s all to play for, with the fate of talented-but-injured Tua Tagavailoa and tall, tall Justin Herbert being key to what happens next. Expect lots of tackles and lots of WRs to go early.
Feel free to chat about draft needs for your team, predictions and expectations. I’ll try set up some polls too though I can’t promise to keep tabs of peoples guesses and scores or whatever.
