In the 2017 draft, running backs Leonard Fournette and Christian McCaffrey were top 10 picks. The 2018 draft could have another one in Penn State’s Saquon Barkley. The junior has good size and speed, and he can catch the ball.
Derrius Guice, Fournette’s replacement at LSU, could challenge Barkley as the top running back. Consider that in 183 carries last season, Guice ran for 1,387 yards and 15 touchdowns. If not for injuries, Georgia’s Nick Chubb would be on the same level as Barkley and Guice. A healthy season could put him back there.
Authentic Kids Todd Frazier Jersey What’s a little different about this season is the known talent already in non-Power Five teams. SMU wide receiver Courtland Sutton could have gone pro after last season and been a top 100 pick. Memphis has two draftable players on offense in quarterback Riley Ferguson and wide receiver Anthony Miller. South Dakota State’s Dallas Goedert may prove himself to be the draft’s tight end prospect. Will Hernandez, a senior guard at UTEP, is similar in many ways to Gabe Jackson of the Oakland Raiders.
It’s been a nice, long offseason for Falcons fans. Plenty of time to put that brutal Super Bowl loss out of your minds, right? That would be the case, except 28-3 has become a meme, and the jokes are everywhere. It’s only going to get worse when the Falcons debut against the Bears on Sunday.

It won’t matter what the Falcons do against the Bears. They could beat Chicago by a 25-point margin and not blow any kind of lead, and the jokes are still going to fly.
Panic index: Brace yourselves, Falcons fans. If you’re not over that humiliating 25-point blown lead, Sunday is going to dredge up a lot of rough memories for you.
