Thread for the upcoming draft. Here are some general thoughts, mostly about the Seahawks, Raiders, and Cowboys: Continue reading “2019 NFL Draft”
I’m pretty sure we discussed this before, but I can’t find the thread. Here’s Colin Cowherd’s best and worst list. I don’t agree with everything, but I do agree with most of his list.
