The first day of the NFL Draft wrapped up a few hours ago. As you can see above the first round picks. Before you ask, no I did not skip #29. There was no pick #29. Pick #29 belonged to the New England Patriots, but was forfeited due to Deflategate.

It was an interesting watch. I heard a lot about Laremy Tunsil and the video that was posted on his Twitter page. I do not know the whole situation, all I know is that his Twitter was hacked and someone posted an old video of him smoking out of a bong. It was talked about a lot throughout the night. After he was drafted by Miami, it died down.

I am happy that the Denver Broncos did draft a quarterback, Paxton Lynch. With Peyton retired and Brock now playing with Houston we needed one. (I am not a Mark Sanchez fan). While I am not a Sanchez fan, I am watching him closely. While I heard rumors that he’ll be a back-up quarterback I have also heard that he has improved a lot since going to Denver. I am interested and curious to find out who will be starter, but we are not close to that decision right now.

My favorite part of the night was when the Broncos first round pick was announced. Through the Make-A-Wish foundation, a sixteen-year-old boy from Denver was able to announce the first round pick. He did an amazing job!

I really want to be in a War Room. I do not care which team; I would just love to sit in the War Room with them to see how all of this works in person.

I do plan to tune into the draft later for Round 2 and 3. If you are interested in watching it will be broadcasted on the NFL Network starting at 7PM Eastern Time. It will pick up from pick #32 which belongs to the Cleveland Browns. That could change, you never know teams trade picks when you least expect it.

Usually the draft order (before trades) starts with the team with the worst record in the league and ends with the team that won the Super Bowl. I remember when I watched the draft for the first time when I was younger I was totally confused and overwhelmed with all the trades. I thought it had to go in that specific worst to best order, but it does not. It’s better now that I understand what is going on. LOL.

I want to extend my congratulations to all the players drafted in Round 1. Good luck this season!

Until Next Time!
