FAN Take is a series that highlights trending events, issues, and decisions in the world of sports and analyzes how they may or may not factor into the Fan Controlled Football League. We would love to hear your feedback, so let us know what you think about each FAN Take!
Tomorrow night is the start of the 2019 NFL Draft, and all eyes will be on a handful of players, including Kyler Murray and Nick Bosa. Let’s just hope for a better situation for some of these guys than the one Johnny Manziel found himself in a few years ago, where he looked all sad and lonely until the 22nd pick of the first round in 2014. Really, you can only go up from there as far as we’re concerned – but, really, I mean, Manziel sank MUCH lower than that in actuality.
We know we’ve mentioned this before, but clearly, at the FCFL we’re all big football fans, and love this time of year. We’ve been working on our own mock drafts before Thursday – someone in the office needs to have bragging rights – and we’re looking forward to seeing how everything shakes out on Thursday night. We’re sure that with The Draft Network’s launch of their ‘Mock Draft Machine,’ plenty of people will be comparing their mocks side by side as the 32 teams make their long-awaited picks.
We’ve put together our own mock drafts already, but we want to hear from you! Fill out your mock draft here and share your screenshots. We want to know who you think will be getting the coveted title of the ‘First Pick,’ and really, who will end up being the best pick? We want to know which great decisions (and mistakes) you think teams are going to make. We want to know which teams you think will blatantly disregard what their real needs are in order to get the most high-profile draft prospect. Make sure to post your mock drafts to Twitter and Instagram, tagging us and using #FCFL. Who knows, yours may be featured on our social media depending on how strategic you are with these picks!
