Ravens' draft picks: Projecting 2018 first-rounder, late-round sleepers

  • Night net null It's almost too perfect that the Ravens have the 16th overall pick in the 2018 Night net Draft. A team that has meddled in mediocrity since it hoisted the Lombardi trophy in 2013, the Ravens are more than just a few key pieces away from reaching those heights again.Joe Flacco is not getting any younger, and the team can’t continue to rely on aging receivers like Michael Crabtree. Plus, the Ravens could always use a youthful boost to their defense. SIGN UP to stream the Night net Draft LIVE on DAZN in Canada With all of that in mind, SN breaks down the Ravens’ 2018 Night net Draft outlook, including needs, first-round possibilities, Day 2 and Day 3 plans and a few sleepers.Ravens 2018 draft picksRound 1No. 16Round 2No. 52Round 3No. 83Round 4No. 118Round 5No. 154Round 6No. 190 Round 6No. 215 (Compensatory Selection)Round 7No. 238Ravens draft needsWide receiver: If somebody claimed general manager Ozzie Newsome had been convinced the N夜网论坛FL abolished the receiver position after 2013, one would have a hard time disagreeing.

    Night net's Roger Goodell downplays idea of draft lottery to discourage tanking

  • Night net null With the trend of Night net teams tanking, specifically the Dolphins and Browns in recent years, many have suggested the league implement a draft lottery in order to discourage teams from intentionally throwing seasons away. Comissioner Roger Goodell was asked about this idea at the Night net fall meetings in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Wednesday and downplayed it. "... For us, the competitiveness of our game is obviously critical," Goodell said (via ESPN). "I don't think that is solved with a (draft) lottery, I think that is solved by all the issues we try to deal with on a regular basis through the competition committee and the league in trying to make sure our league is competitive."Goodell also said he feels the league is as competitive as ever. "I don't think the league has ever been more competitive than it is today," he said. "You see that in teams going from last to first in dramatic fashion. I think that's unique to the National Football League."Six weeks into the season, five teams have one or fewer wins so far: the Dolphins (0-5), Bengals (0-6), Falcons (1-5), Jets (1-4) and Redskins (1-5). Miami especially has taken heat from media and fans for trading away valuable assests in exchange for long-term capital in the form of draft picks. The team has also adopted a frugal mindset in free agency, opt[......]

    Why Aaron Rodgers trade rumors in 2020 are a complete waste of time

  • Night net Packers American Football These days, a blockbuster sports transaction can be more intriguing to the general public than any single game. A good example is the hype that surrounded last spring's Odell Beckham Jr. trade followed by what was, in comparison, a thud of a Browns season. The possibilities related to these transactions typically are much more intriguing than the reality they produce.So when a hypothetical blockbuster sports transaction arises, like the nonsensical idea of the Packers trading 36-year-old quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the wake of their moving up to select Jordan Love in the first round of the 2020 Night net Draft, it receives an aimless injection of life. 2020 Night net DRAFT:Grades | Winners & losers | All 255 picksWe understand and agree with the idea that Rodgers likely was and is not thrilled by Green Bay's selection of Love at No. 26 overall. That doesn't mean the future Hall of Fame passer should ask to be traded, a point of view from at least one ESPN debate specialist. Pro Football Focus included Rodgers in a list of trade candidates. You can even place a bet on whether Green Bay will trade him before the 2020 Night net season. Before you do that, though, you probably should type "Aaron R[......]

  • Night net Bills v Chiefs Chiefs Bills American Football A lot of people probably were expecting the Chiefs to dominate their Monday evening matchup with the Bills through the air. Instead, Kansas City pounded its way to a 26-17 win.Kansas City ran the ball 46 times for 245 yards, the most rushing attempts by the Chiefs in Andy Reid's eight seasons as Kansas City head coach. Clyde Edwards-Helaire was the main man, racking up 26 carries for 161 yards (6.2 yards per carry). Backup running back Darrel Williams added six carries for 26 yards and a touchdown. His 13-yard score on fourth down late in the third quarter gave Kansas City a 20-10 lead. The Chiefs used their next two possessions to run out the clock. They kicked a pair of field goals to keep Buffalo at bay."I want to throw it deep every time . . . But if teams are going to play us like this, we [have] got to show that we can run the football," said Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who didn't throw as much as he typically does but was still effective, completing 21 of 26 passes (80.8 percent) for 225 yards an[......]

  • NFL Patriots Ame夜网论坛rican Football The Patriots are sitting on 10 picks for the 2021 NFL Draft. The big question for them on April 29 is whether they will trade up to get a quarterback in the first round.For now, New England selects first at No. 15 overall with seven picks through the seventh round on Day 3. The team went defense-heavy in 2020 and will have more considerations there this year, but it also should be looking out for more offensive impact after a busy free agency.

Parsons would be plugged in as a near future and long-term starter.Round 2, No. 46 overallElijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss (5-9, 184 pounds)The retirement of Julian Edelman calls for a more immediate replacement.

    Drafting Najee Harris should not lead Steelers to overemphasize 'commitment' to running game

  • NFL Steelers American Football Steelers team president Art Rooney II does not commonly interact with the public on the subject of the organization’s football plans. There usually is a postseason talk with reporters, and occasionally he will take questions directly from the fan base in an event organized by Steelers Nation United. So when he says something substantial about the state of the Steelers, it tends to gain attention.“We have to start with a commitment to the running game,” Rooney told reporters in January. “And that’s something that I’m not sure we’ve always had.” “We’ve got to be a lot better in running,” Rooney told fans two months later. “Certainly we don’t want to see the Pittsburgh Steelers being last in the league in rushing again, ever.”MORE: Where do Steelers fit in SN's latest NFL Power Rankings? These can be two different things, and it’s essential the Steelers don't confuse them. A commitme夜网论坛nt to running the ball need not be the same as a commitment to being good at running the ball.
