HHS SPORTSTALK with Jack Taylor and Chance McCullough
Jack Taylor: So the 2017 NFL Draft is this Thursday and as usual the hype has been building. But it’s not as hyped as it is in usual years and hasn’t been hyped for the right reasons.
The two usual stacked classes in this years draft aren’t as stacked, critics are even calling these classes the worst they have ever seen. The Quarterbacks and Offensive Lineman are arguably the most important positions on the offensive side. It’s not that the players are bad, but they are not players that you can rely on to be your franchise players or players that a General Manager would want to sign to a max contract deal.
As a New York Giants fan however, I am excited to see who they draft because the possibilities are endless. If the Giants draft a good defensive player then their defense would be sick, If they draft a good offensive player then they don’t have to rely on the defense as much.
Anyway, I’m excited for the draft because I believe the Giants know what they have to do and because nobody knows who is going where.
Chance McCullough: The 2017 NFL Draft is less than a day away and this year’s draft has the makings of one of the most controversial and mysterious drafts of all time. One of the main reasons this is the case because this draft outside the of the number one pick (even that isn’t a guarantee) is anyone’s guess; the talent is relatively close so we really have no idea what any team is going to do.
As if that wouldn’t have made it interesting enough, there are several really good players that have a bunch of off the field concerns surrounding them which is gonna make teams shy away from them. Mix that in with all of the other mystery and this Thursday night is going to leave a lot a fans scratching their heads and wondering what on earth is their team thinking.
As a Jaguars supporter I can’t even begin to imagine what they are thinking about. This team can go in several different directions because of the number of holes on their roster. This makes it hard to eliminate players from several positions which means anyone could be in play.
I’ll say this, whatever happens Thursday night for the Jaguars and the rest of the NFL, you should have this on your mind, “Expect the unexpected and you won’t be disappointed.”
