Welcome to the second annual Miami Student Mock NFL Draft. We’ve made significant progress since last year’s edition and have even added two other writers to the “draft room.” As a quick preface, our selections are the picks we would make in the best interest of the team – not necessarily what we think is going to happen. As a result, we had a few “hot takes” and a couple players that slid despite being atop most draft boards.
Baseball season is here. It’s happening. Games have been played, yabos have been crushed and players have been K’d. It’s going to be an exciting season and it’ll be a good one to follow. That being said, a few thoughts from Opening Weekend: Cincinnati Reds’ second baseman Scooter Gennett might actually prove last year wasn’t a fluke (the man can mash, going 4-for-4 on Opening Day), Harper may silence his doubters, the Yankees are overrated and the Brew Crew might be the real deal.
Sunday was a day dominated by the “Young Guys” of golf with Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler all sitting near the top of the leaderboard. One “Young Guy” prevailed and claimed his first Major Championship – his name was Patrick Reed. Reed held onto his lead on Sunday to win his first green jacket, which isn’t easy to do at Augusta National.
The doldrums endured in the harsh winter months by baseball fans were hardly warmed by a Hot Stove this offseason. This free agent market was closer in consistency to collusion-riddled molasses than the quick flowing open-market that us baseball fans are accustomed to following.
