Well, the NFL Draft has come and gone with a lot of solid performances by some already powerful teams. The New England Patriots added some strong defensive depth, adding Chandler Jones and Donta Hightower in the first round. The Baltimore Ravens were able to add even more depth to their linebacking core, drafting Courtney Upshaw. Even the Philadelphia Eagles had a strong draft, picking up Fletcher Cox, Vinny Curry and Brandon Boykin, just to name a few.
I am very excited for the new season to begin. I gotta wait until August to see them in action, since that’s when the preseason games start. I can’t wait to watch these teams go at it.
But of course, as is the case with every draft, there is always one just BAD selection.
That, my friends, was the Seattle Seahawks and Bruce Irvin.
Irvin, which I will take as my worst person #19, went into the draft as the number 99 overall player. He was taken in the top 15.
Even if Bruce Irvin turns out being this incredible football player, he would have been available in the second round and maybe even the third. Seattle shouldn’t have reached this far. Probably going to be a huge mistake for them.
Anyway, I’m pumped up, despite the Giants having a solid draft as well.
We are ready this year. I smell a Super Bowl for Philly!
Either that, or I smell the bust factor of Bruce Irvin.
