I told him not to come out, stay in school, [that] he’d be a third-round choice, said Brandt, the longtime NFL personnel guru. He came out. He’ll be a third-round choice. He’d be a lot better off because there’s a weak class next year. He’d have a chance to move up.
As a redshirt junior, Andrews was a consensus All-American and Mackey Award winner (best tight end) who was Heisman winner Baker Mayfield’s favorite target. Those honors matter only a little compared to the harsh realities of NFL Draft evaluation. Andrews is one of what is expected to be a record 112 underclassmen betting their skills matter enough to get them drafted in the first two rounds, where the real money is.
Then when he hit the locker room, he heard fullback John Kuhn saying that they needed 11 players back out on the field to line up for the formality of the two-point conversion.
So I just turned around. I didn’t expect I was going to be the first guy leading the troops out there. We were just trying to get the game over and be done with it, Morstead said. Once we got out there, Case Keenum said, ‘Hey we’re gonna take a knee.’ I said, ‘You better,’ because I was already hurting.
Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma. The New York Post is thrilled with this selection, as it’ll provide years of fantastic cover art material. Mayfield is a somewhat unconventional quarterback who might just help the NFL move into the future — or, what we’ve seen in college for years — on offense.
Bradley Chubb, DE, NC State. Ideal pairing. Chubb is the best pure defensive end in this class and the Buccaneers had the fewest amount of sacks in football this past season.
I’ll just say that’s self-explanatory, Jack said, via ESPN.com. Interesting. That’s all I’m going to say.
Jack’s play didn’t involve a penalty, but it did involve a potential gaffe by the officiating crew. On a play early in the fourth quarter, Jack stripped Dion Lewis of the ball and likely would have scored a touchdown, but the play was blown dead after he gained possession of the ball.
