NFL Draft Round 1 Was All About the Trades
Sure, it isn’t the greatest draft class, but a couple surprise trades made Thursday night much more interesting than Conor, Gary or anyone else could have expected.
A month ago, the Eagles had three picks in the teens of an underwhelming draft, and now they have a top-five veteran receiver, a 340-pound game changer for the middle of their defensive line, and still have two first-round picks in next year’s draft. Is anyone GM'ining better than Howie Roseman right now?
Plus, the Cardinals make us furrow our brows in confusion again, this time with the trade for Marquise Brown on the eve of his free agency. But, from the Ravens' standpoint, what does Lamar Jackson’s hurt feelings mean?
Also, Thursday night’s receiver run, the Travon Walker pick at 1-1, the lone first-round QB, the Giants’ and Jets' good nights, the Texans do it right, and much more!
