Đêm qua Dự thảo NFL 2023 đã kết thúc hành động của vòng đầu tiên, nhưng mỗi đội đã thể hiện tốt như thế nào trong mắt GiveMeSport?
Đó là khoảnh khắc họ đã chờ đợi cả đời và ngày giấc mơ của họ thành hiện thực, được gia nhập NFL sau nhiều năm làm việc chăm chỉ bắt đầu từ khi họ còn là những đứa trẻ cho đến những giây phút cuối cùng của họ trong môn bóng bầu dục đại học.
For the players, you imagine that a lot of them won’t be too fussed with where they landed, they’re just happy that they are going to be able to play in the NFL, but for the teams themselves you imagine that some of them might be incredibly nervous.
They might have felt confident about the picks that they made, but every bust that the league has seen would have had a very confident General Manager, Head Coach and possibly fanbase behind it at the time. But now that we’ve had some time to digest the results and get away from some of the shocks of the first round (such as the Houston Texans trading back in to get the 3rd pick right after picking #2), what exactly do the results look like?
Using Tiermaker, we have broken the teams (at least those that picked), into five categories, taking into account not just the player they picked, but also there moves up or down the board (if they went that route):
No complaints, filled a necessary hole with players that should be instant home runs
Not quite as good as the teams above, but will have made their team better with the choice they made
Could Have Been Better:
Solid picks and moves, but don’t expect any instant Pro Bowlers
The team picked a player that you might not be too confident on making a big impact right away
What Were They Thinking?:
There were either better options out there at the position they chose, or they picked the wrong position entirely
So, just where did your teams rank? Let’s find out:
Xuất sắc: Houston Texans, Philadelphia Eagles, Seattle Seahawks, New England Patriots
Rất thú vị: Chicago Bears, Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers
Có thể tốt hơn: New Orleans Saints, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers, Detroit Lions, Kansas City Chiefs
Hơi hồi hộp: Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys, Los Angeles Chargers, Tennessee Titans
Họ đang nghĩ gì?: New York Jets, Buffalo Bills, Las Vegas Raiders, Washington Commanders, Indianapolis Colts
