Giants rookie running back Saquon Barkley, picked No. 2 overall in this year’s NFL Draft, plans to be smart with his money.
According to ESPN.com, Barkley doesn’t plan to make any significant purchases with his NFL salary, as he bought his parents a house with his endorsement money.
Hi, Beek. Thanks for all you do to keep us informed in Falcons nation!! My question is, I know Calvin Ridley is going to be an asset to the Falcons this season in many ways, but I am hearing that He sometimes struggles with dropping passes. Should we be concerned, or do you think the http://www.mapleleafsofficialauthenticshop.com/Jake_Gardiner_Jersey_Adidas coaches in Atlanta will help overcome this?
Matt: I don’t think there’s any concern about Calvin Ridley’s hands whatsoever, Anthony. If anything, he’s looked every bit http://www.authentichockeyrangersofficial.com/Kevin_Shattenkirk_Jersey_Adidas of a first-round draft pick to me – and I noted as much in my 10 things we learned during the Falcons OTAs and minicamp. Now, did Ridley (pictured below) catch every single pass? No, but there was never a point where anyone thought, ‘Oh this might be an issue.’ If anything, Ridley has dazzled with his route-running and speed running downfield. And he’s made some pretty nifty catches, too. Carry on.
Beckham blasted a home run to left field during his round.
Following the Evans pick, the Titans surprisingly were able to land edge-rusher Harold Landry in the second round. Tennessee was tied for fifth in the NFL with 43 sacks last season, but after combining for 14.5 of those, starting outside linebackers Derrick Morgan (29) and Brian Orakpo (32) are aging.
While Evans boosts the Titans’ ability to get to the QB inside, Landry and his fresh legs can rush from the outside Jake Gardiner Jersey in passing situations. If Landry can deliver close to half the impact of a rookie Jevon Kearse back in 1999, he will be a big success.
Malcolm Butler left the Patriots and joined the Titans a year after fellow cornerback Logan Ryan did the same thing. Butler’s arrival means Kevin Shattenkirk Jersey Ryan will now primarily cover the slot, an overall leap forward for Tennessee’s secondary.
