    I don't think you can roll your dice on Barkley in the late rounds cuz he will probably be a top 5 pick lol

    Saquon Barkley... going late. You just said RB is priority number one and you think Saquon would be there later on. Come on, guy. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

    Keep your eye on Greg Zurlein in the draft. He ended up winning me a couple games last year. You all probably know this, but I just thought I’d remind you.

    Always sucks when someone takes the guy you really wanted right before your pick and then you have to decide who you’re taking instead.
