It’s May, the transition period where we go from spending four months talking about the NFL draft to spending four months talking about fantasy football drafts. Nothing is more “May” than looking at the influence that last month’s draft will have on your fantasy picks in August.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china
Between free agency, the draft and a rejuvenated trade market, players moved around the league fast and furious this offseason. Not to mention, projected roles for certain players have changed several times since March. With that in mind, we’ll take you through who some of the biggest veteran “winners” of the draft were.
Some of these players have made little impact so far in their careers but are primed for a major role in their current offenses. Others were 2017 breakouts who will be afforded playing time after their teams targeted other positions in the draft. No matter the case, we’ll go through the top eight veterans who have the most to gain from their teams’ actions in late April.
After parting ways with the 34-year-old Frank Gore, cheap nike nfl jerseys free shipping who posted 261 carries last season, one of the biggest question marks for the Indianapolis Colts on draft weekend was their running back situation. The only back on their roster with more than 25 carries last season is 2017 fourth-round pick Marlon Mack, who has just 358 rushing yards under his belt.
The Colts showed confidence in Mack via their actions during the draft, though. The team made five picks in the first two rounds, a stretch when seven running backs were drafted, and they still refused to pick one until Day 3. They had ample opportunity to vote Mack onto the bench, but they never swung.
Mack’s top competition right now is fourth-round nfl cheap jerseys nike pick Nyheim Hines, a former receiver who had more receptions than carries until the 2017 season, and fifth-rounder Jordan Wilkins, who was taken with the 169th pick.
Over the last four seasons, only one running back, Alfred Blue, has recorded at least 500 rushing yards after being drafted as late or later than Wilkins. Until we’re told otherwise, it’s safe to assume Mack is going to be the RB1 in Indianapolis while Hines contributes as a pass-catcher out of the backfield.nfl nike jerseys for cheap
