Arizona Cardinals left tackle D.J. Humphries was lost for the season when he tore his MCL and dislocated his knee cap in a Thursday night game against the Seattle Seahawks last November.
While he’s still not certain when he’ll be back to full speed, Humphries is confident it will be in time for the start of the regular season.
Based on rumors, Sporting News has “narrowed down” the Barkley draft derby to a dozen teams, all of which currently hold top-20 selections. Here are those 12 teams, ranked in relation to their likelihood of landing the Nittany Lion.
Seattle isn’t bringing back Eddie Lacy or Thomas Rawls, leaving some combination of Mike Davis, Chris Carson, C.J. Prosise and J.D. McKissic as its backs for 2018. Since the trade for Marshawn Lynch more than seven years ago, the Seahawks haven’t gone big in addressing their backfield.
With Seattle’s defense and the passing game taking some personnel hits, this year would make sense as the time to finally re-establish itself as a traditional power running team to both better complement and supplement Russell Wilson. The QB will get his chance to mentor Barkley on ESPN’s “QB2RB,” but finding a way to pair the two for the longer term will be difficult.
According to Albert Breer of SI.com, Griffin has been invited to the 2018 NFL Draft and plans to attend.
The Central Florida linebacker was already one of the best stories in this year’s talent pool, after he overcame a birth defect which cost him a hand to become one of the top players in college football.
But after initially not getting an invite to Indianapolis, he proceeded to take the combine by storm. He registered 20 repetitions of the 225-pound bench press (again, with one hand), and ran a 4.38-second 40-yard dash.
His ability to overcome obstacles has made him an inspiration to many, and having him around the draft broadcast will benefit the league, as the NFL works to highlight such stories (for their own ratings, as well as the greater good of society which is of course their first priority).
Allegations of drug use inside sober homes is nothing new, says code enforcement officer Woods.
