Four Teams That Won The NFL Draft

It seems like everyone has gotten better this year

Four Teams That Won The NFL Draft

With the 2017 NFL Draft having wrapped up Thursday night, teams are now full of young talent, and are all ready to begin the new season. Ultimately, only time will tell who really made the best picks this year. With that in mind, here are four teams I believe put themselves in the best position with this draft.

1). The San Francisco 49ers

This was a truly awful roster last year, and that may still be putting it lightly. Drafting two of the best in the first round, Solomon Thomas and Reuben Foster, will set this team up for years with defensive talent. Although I do question their choice of drafting C.J. Beathard when attempting to address the offense. Coming from a Packers fan, I cannot even begin to express my gratitude to John Lynch for fooling the Bears into drafting Mitchell Trubisky, because that is a pick that I'm sure the NFC North will enjoy for years to come.

2). The Cleveland Browns

At the moment, it is a popular call to say that the Browns had the best draft this year. While I am putting them at second in this ranking, I do believe that they were a bit risky with the selections of Jabrill Peppers and David Njoku in the back end of the first round. Not to mention, I still don't believe this roster is anywhere close to being organized enough for a winning season. They got some solid young talent though, and the next few seasons will determine if their moves really paid off.

3). The Jacksonville Jaguars

Picking Leonard Fournette at the fourth spot was an amazing decision, because the Jags now have a running back who just plays angry. He is a bruising, workhorse back who should help immediately with the development of Blake Bortles. Not to mention picking up Cam Robinson in the second round; not too shabby. Fourth round pick Dede Westbrook could be a steal, if he manages to stay out of trouble off the field.

4). The Indianapolis Colts

The Colts had a draft that was nothing short of amazing. With a plethora of defensive selections, the Colts may surprise people this season with the strength of their new players. Malik Hooker and Quincy Wilson will provide an immediate impact in the secondary, and Marlon Mack could prove a worthy successor to the aging Frank Gore. Who knows, maybe this is the year in which everything is not placed on the shoulders of Andrew Luck?

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
