The 2021 NFL Draft is now done and dusted…on with the season!
Ok, so the season is still a summer away, but at least we have this to distract us until then.
Wade & Ryan look at the whole dang draft, (ok-the good bits) in our 2021 Draft Review podcast.
After a year of crappy Covid, it was nice to reach some level or normalcy once again.
Yes, fans were masked and distanced…but they could boo Roger Goodell again!
Say what you will about RG, but his playfulness with the fans on his likeability is refreshing.
He seems to even relish in it year on year.
Keep it up Rog, we need a heel these days.
(but we’ll get to Aaron Rodgers soon)
In terms of winners of the 2021 NFL Draft, the guys will look at all the teams, but also focus on what teams did to enhance their whole squad.
Our 2021 NFL Draft Review winners are:
The Bears came out on top of a draft? Is this some feverish dream? In some sort of odd Tetris scenario, Justin Fields fell to the Bears in an opportunity.
While the Broncos could have grabbed Fields, they allowed the Bears to move up to swap with the Giants and snag this Ohio State great.
Add to this a solid OT, and the Bears were able to make something out of nothing.
Now…what will they do with it.
Too gets his Waddle, as well as a whole host of talent. Miami is looking to add to a surprising 2020 team by adding more depth in D and the offensive weapons.
The Dolphins got sweet heat for that pre-Draft trade with the 49ers and Eagles.
Miami made enough moves to make the AFC East interesting…now it’s only up to Tua.
The Browns have added more danger to their 2021 squad in their vision for a shot at the AFC title this year. With 8 picks, Cleveland immediately spent 5 of those on D, all of whom could feasibly start this year.
Where Cleveland really shone was some offensive line steals early on.
James Hudson will give Baker plenty of protection…and time.
Will the Jets squander all of their picks only to end up back here in a few years? Sadly, it’s possible. The Jets have the control and responsibility of a crack-head when it comes to their draft picks.
They make them, break them, then line up again at the trough complaining that they ‘didn’t get a good one.’
Even a petulant child should only be given so many toys.
With Adam Gase managing a local Wendy’s, it should give the Jets plenty of inspiration.
Are you ready for some support Justin Herbert? The Chargers made some great moves to not only protect Herbert, but to also give him a bit of mustard on D.
LAC fizzled out on injuries as the season drew on, so it’s good that they found some fresh meat to give Herbert some time downfield.
With Lynn out, the Chargers could make a hefty push for the AFC playoffs this season.
Have a laugh and a listen to this weeks 2021 Draft Review podcast. Please feel free to share, care and listen in your underwear.
The NFL schedule is released on May 12th, so we should have a better idea of who is coming to London this season.
