NFL Draft Live Blog

Video feed crashed, so I’m live blogging it. We’ll Do It Live! Bengals–Joe Burrow, QB. Bengals had to do this one or the fans may have rioted. I personally would have gone Chase Young, but I get it.

Back when I was in more dynasty leagues, I did more draft research than I have the last couple of years. That is not going to stop me from trying to sound smarter than I am with a mock draft, however. So, here goes… Cincinnati Bengals–Joe Burrow, QB, LSU.

Mock Draft Season

WIth the NFL draft less than a week away, the mock drafts are flying. It is never a bad idea to look at a few, for a general sense of what is expected to happen.
