The NFL draft recently came to a close. It was as exciting as usual. Football fans were kept on the edge of their seats for three days to see the players that their teams would pick. There were ten-quarter backs, 29 running backs, and 32 wide receivers that were drafted this year. There were some interesting picks among this year’s rookies.
Michael Trubisky was drafted number 2 by the Chicago Bears. He might not play much this season because the Bears still have Mike Glennon who they are paying close to twenty million over three years. He is the one to watch and could impress in the few appearances that he makes next season. Leonard Fournette was the number 1 draft choice for the Jacksonville Jaguars and fourth in the league. The running back has proved that he is talented. He is likely to reach RB1 by the end of the year if he does not get injured.
Christian McCaffrey had been linked to the Carolina Panthers for several months leading up to the draft. They finally landed him. The running back was eighth overall. It can establish a working partnership with Cam Newton. He will be involved in a lot of passing and is predicted to eight hundred rushing yards.
Chad Kelly was pick number 253, but you should never discount the underdog. Kelly is a quarterback. The fact that he was picked last could raise his value a little bit. There are many picks to choose from since the wide receiver position had the highest number of drafted players. This means that it will be hard to tell which of them will perform well until they play the first few games. Picking some of them early enough means that you will have a higher chance of success even if a few underperform or get injured.
