2018 NFL DON’T DRAFT LIST
Every team hopes to land the next superstar in the draft. Great coaching can turn any kid into a star, but by the time these guys get to the draft, the duds have long since illuminated themselves.
Like I always say, character and gumption are the two most important pieces of the puzzle that make up a champion. Spotting those missing pieces is how I predicted Ryan Leaf’s eventual demise, and he was a mere child when I saw him play.
As a 12 time pee wee football champion coach, I think I would know. Without further ado, here is the 2018 NFL Don’t Draft List.
JOSH ALLEN,QB, WYOMING – Wyoming! Need I say more? It’s a D-1AA school. I don’t care what they call it now. Despite competing against lesser talent, and I mean much lesser talent, he still only managed to complete 56% of his passes. And he threw for less than 2,000 yards in 11 games. Size(6-5, 233) and arm strength won’t be only things he and Jamarcus Russell share, they also both crash and burn their NFL careers. Mark my words on this one.
Again, Wyoming. What is the best case scenario for this guy? A Joe Flacco who you play in hopes that he won’t shit down his leg at the wrong moment and blow the 7-0 fourth quarter lead your incredible defense earned. What a joke. I say he turns out to be a game manager like Blake Bortles! And that’s why I put him on my NFL don’t draft list.
BAKER MAYFIELD, QB, OKLAHOMA – Baker Mayfield is a stereotype for Millennials. He is an insufficient leader who lacks maturity and the fortitude required to achieve greatness. Leaders are meant to be stoic, not Philip Rivers. Mayfield is Tim Tebow minus work ethic, and even Tebow didn’t make it in the NFL. Overrated athleticism is another of his attributes. I have a fourth grade quarterback who moves better than that guy. He throws an accurate ball, but he is small(6-1, 220).
He’ll be better than the Wyoming kid, but not by much. He is a boy who isn’t cut out for the workmanlike man league known as the NFL. Like I said, he’s Millennial.
LAMAR JACKSON, QB, LOUISVILLE – Lamar Jackson woo’s with his athleticism and arm strength. Reminds me of some other royal fuckups at the quarterback position! This kid is green as far as throwing mechanics are concerned, and it shows in his accuracy. He has Colin Kaepernick size and Mike Vick speed, but an attitude like Johnny Manzel(I will never call that man football). I give him a one in three shot of not being considered a bust by the time he hangs up his cleats.
Arden Key, OLB, LSU – A freakishly talented athlete without a doubt, but will he put in the work? Switching from defensive end to outside linebacker isn’t always easy, but a defensive end in a 4-3 is essentially the same thing as a 3-4 outside linebacker. His stats were never outstanding, and he took a step back from year 2 to 3. Typical Millennial who wants a payday rather than the pride of refining his skills and mastering a craft. He’ll get pushed around as a rookie and soon after exit the league. Mark my words.
