Looks like many of my Buckeyes are going to the Ravens ... Dobbins and Harrison
Thats not good seeing I am a Steelers fan ... ugh
I was surprised that the Steelers didn't take one of the top RBs that were available for the Steelers at pick 49.
I think Swift went earlier, but Dobbins, Taylor I think went a few spots earlier and Akers was also available .

They instead too WR Chase Claypool out of ND ... nothing wrong with that, but I would have thought taking a player at a position you NEEDED to address would have been a better choice.

I was surprised by that too. They did finally pick Anthony McFarland Jr. from Maryland. Kind of small, but explosive. We’ll see.

Problem is , the could have had a TOP of the Line RB ...
With McFarlane, he won't push Conner .... Conner while I like him, he's not a Starter in my mind, more of a change of pace.
Conner will have another so so year and be gone as his contract will be up at the end of this year ...

Again, why they should have taken a TOTL back This year ...

Conner Thinks/thought he could replace Bell ... we all found out just how good Bell is with a decent team.

San Diego fans are going to be thrilled when they see KJ Hill playing for them with a 7th round pick ...
I expected to see him go in the late 2nd or 3rd, 4th at the latest ...
When I saw how many positions were slipping into later rounds, I figured 4th.

The Top RB's were thought to start going in the 1st round ...
The top WRs were expected to go from 1st rd, pick 12 thru the end of the 1st round ... they started in the 1st, but many went outside of the 1st.

“As the COVID-19 pandemic still has the sports world on pause, the NFL has come out and said that they expect the regular season to proceed as planned.”


You left out the next paragraph:

"Our planning, our expectation, is fully directed at playing a full season starting on schedule and having a full regular season and a full set of playoffs," NFL executive Jeff Pash said in March, via NFL Media's Tom Pelissero. "Am I certain? I'm not certain that I'll be here tomorrow. But I'm planning on it."

San Diego fans? I used to be one. Now there aren't even any LA Chargers fans.

A “one-year, incentive-laden" contract.
Any details on the, "incentives"?

Dont dress like a "flesh-peddler" during press conferences and we'll pay you $X.

If you want to play your, I'm SUPERMAN routine dont cry when defensive linemen rush you and put some kryptonite on your butt.

Etc.

Covid-19 and it’s impact on the 2020 season, I don’t see how it’s possible even though I hope I get to watch football this year. If players and coaches who test positive are exempt from game day all it’s going to take is one case getting through the door and next thing you know half a team isn’t allowed on the field.

Or how about this?
