Every season there is someone in the NFL who claims to be the best at their position.  Last season, Richard Sherman claimed to be the best CB, then he helped lead his team to a Super Bowl.  This year LeSean “Shady” McCoy has put the NFL on notice by stating he’s the best RB in the league.

What is being the best based on?  Is it based on being the number 1 guy the season prior?  Or does it go by years of consistent play at the position?  Everyone has their own philosophies that come into play.  For me, I’m on the fence, because both come into play, as well as health and style of teams’ offense.

The 2014 NBA Finals are tied at 1 game apiece, but the fans of every team not named the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs are thinking about the 2014 NBA Draft.  The combine has made people pay attention to certain players, while others already know what they like.  Workouts are underway, but the focus is on where the top 3 players will fall.

Here is my full 2 round 2014 NBA Mock Draft.

Round 1

1. Cleveland Cavaliers - Joel Embiid C – Kansas

2. Milwaukee Bucks - Jabari Parker SF – Duke

3. Philadelphia 76ers - Andrew Wiggins SF – Kansas (more…)

The media has jumped on board with a single draft pick.  The sports world will follow behind once the NFL’s regular season begins.  The Cleveland Browns just don’t have the same old feel of “The Factory of Sadness” or “Mistake by the Lake” Browns.  There seems to be more of a buzz around the team and it’s not just about Johnny Manziel.

Ok…ok…I know that all everyone is talking about is Manziel and his recent trip to Vegas or Josh Gordon’s apparent upcoming suspension for a failed marijuana test, but there is more to this team.  Much of the talk is about offensive players, which after the horrible product placed on the field in recent seasons is warranted, but the winning will start on the defensive end.

The NBA draft lottery has come and gone.  While the fans of the Miami Heat, Indiana Pacers, Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs are still glued to their tv’s during the conference finals, everyone else is gearing up for the NBA draft.  June 26, some teams futures will change forever with the selection of a kid.

The Philadelphia 76ers were in the news all year-long with the talks of “tanking” being used in every other sentence.  That term is reckless in my opinion, because they did what any “rebuilding” team should do.

Blow the team up and start from scratch!  And that’s what the Sixers did, blew it up and started from scratch. (more…)

Today is the big day!  The NFL Draft is officially upon us and the excitement level is at an all-time high.  The added wait made fans more anxious and angry at the same time, but needless to say they are ready to see the fates of their respective teams.  Mock drafts are going wild with predictions, so just take a look at mine.

2014 NFL Mock Draft: Round 1

1. Houston Texans - Jadeveon Clowney DE/South Carolina

All the negative things are behind Clowney and none of the top prospects at QB blew the Texans away.  So back by popular demand, Clowney, the #1 prospect in the draft, will be taken #1 overall.  Paired next to J.J. Watt could create one of the scariest duo’s opposing QB’s may ever see.  Unless someone gives them a RG3 type deal, don’t expect them to trade out of the top spot.

2. St. Louis Rams (from Washington Redskins) - Greg Robinson OT/Auburn

As appealing as Watkins may be to the Rams, protecting Bradford is too much of a bigger need.  Robinson is an athletic freak, but Matthews may be the most polished.  It’s a toss up between the two, but I’ll go with Robinson.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars - Khalil Mack DE-OLB/Buffalo

The Jaguars surprised everyone and traded away Gabbert and re-signed Henne.  They still need their QB of the future.  I think that Gus Bradley will avoid popular demand and draft a playmaker on the defensive side of the ball and hope their QB drops to them in the 2nd round. (more…)
