A snapshot of the 2008 NFL Draft

Now that the skill players have worked out at the combine, it’s time to take an early look at this year’s draft class. I will be getting more and more information on this year’s class in the coming weeks from people who know more about this group than I do, but here are some early thoughts.

Generally, this looks like a damn good group, perhaps a great one. There are 3-4 legit NFL starters at quarterback, and the running back position looks loaded, and especially fast.

  • The DFS Virgin “Week 1″ September 11, 2015
    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season. I’m not going to lie, I have some butterflies in my belly. Maybe it’s because I just deposited $500 into an account at FantasyFued.com. Maybe it’s because I never […]
