Chicago Bears: QB Mitchell Trubisky

The Chicago Bears absolutely must get a breakout from their 2017 top-10 pick, quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

He completed fewer than 60 percent of his passes and averaged just 6.6 yards per attempt as the league’s fifth-lowest-rated qualified passer in 2017. None of the four quarterbacks with lower qualified passer ratings—Trevor Siemian, Brett Hundley, C.J. Beathard and DeShone Kizer—are projected to start in 2018.

But top 2016 pick Jared Goff was even worse than that in his rookie year. And then Goff got a new offensive-minded head coach and several new wholesale cheap nfl jerseys weapons in the receiving corps, and he exploded with a Pro Bowl sophomore campaign.

Could Trubisky be this year’s Goff? New coach Matt Nagy certainly brings new energy and a quarterback-whisperer reputation to town, while new weapons Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel and Trey Burton should make life a lot easier on the 2017 No. 2 overall selection.

Trubisky had just one college season as a starter under his belt entering the league, and he did show glimpses late in his rookie year. Watch for a nfl jerseys wholesale cheap potential major breakout in 2018.

The Cincinnati Bengals need their top two selections from the 2017 draft to emerge as sophomore stars after both wide receiver John Ross and running back Joe Mixon struggled as rookies.authentic nfl jerseys cheap wholesale

But there might actually be a little more rope for Ross, considering that he played just 17 snaps in 2017. This might feel like a rookie season following a redshirt year for the speedster out of Washington, cheap wholesale nfl jerseys and at least A.J. Green is still the top gun in Cincinnati’s receiving corps, while Brandon LaFell and Tyler Boyd are there too

Mixon, though, is expected to take the reins as the lead dog in the backfield after a tough 2017 campaign. Among 48 backs who carried the ball at least 100 times last season, only six averaged fewer yards per attempt than Mixon (3.52).nfl jersey cheap wholesale china  But he did average a strong 5.0 yards per rush during his final four games of the season,cheap nfl wholesale jerseys  which could indicate he found a groove entering his first full offseason.

They’re hoping so, because director of player personnel Duke Tubin told the media at the combine—per Geoff Hobson of the team’s official website—that they expect the 21-year-old to be a leader in their backfield in 2018.

Baltimore Ravens: WR Chris Moore

After catching just 13 of the 36 passes thrown his way and scoring only twice during his first season-and-a-half of professional football, Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Chris Moore finally started making a positive impact down the stretch in 2017.

The 2016 fourth-round pick caught 12 of his 18 targets for 152 yards and a pair of touchdowns during the final six weeks of his sophomore campaign, which could have him in position to break out as a 25-year-old in 2018.

With Michael Crabtree, Willie Snead and John Brown joining the fray, a Ravens passing game that ranked 29th in the NFL last season could use an explosive third year from the homegrown Moore. And there’s a chance that happens, because he’s been generating buzz in OTAs.

Buffalo Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson has fallen well short of expectations two years into his career. The 2016 first-round pick has registered just six sacks and 46 tackles in 21 of a possible 32 games.nfl jersey replica

If he doesn’t take a large step forward in his third season, the No. 19 overall pick will start to be considered a bust. And he knows it.

Lawson told the Sports Xchange recently that he’s approaching “every day like my job is on the line,” while Bills head coach Sean McDermott added that “It’s time that he steps up.”nfl jerseys replica

“Alright, it’s the third year, I’m a former first-round pick, it’s time for me to show why I got drafted in the first round,” Lawson said, per Josh Reed of “It’s time to do my job and not let these Bills fans down and the coaches down.”

An ankle injury ended the 23-year-old’s sophomore season in early December, but he appears to be healthy again, and he should have plenty of replica nike nfl jerseys opportunities opposite Jerry Hughes up front in 2018.

While the Carolina Panthers are still waiting for recent early-round draft picks Shaq Thompson, Devin Funchess, Vernon Butler and James Bradberry to take off, the youngster with the highest ceiling on the roster is 2017 No. 8 overall pick Christian McCaffrey. cheap nfl jerseys wholesale

The pass-catching running back out of Stanford wasn’t bad as a rookie. Only 13 NFL players caught more passes than him (80) and he averaged 4.7 yards per carry while scoring a handful of touchdowns in the second half of the season. He also had 117 yards on 12 touches in a playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints. nfl jerseys cheap wholesale

But that came after McCaffrey averaged an abysmal 2.4 yards per carry while scoring just twice in the first eight games of the year. Maybe growing pains were a factor at the age of 21, so if he can pick up in 2018 where he left off in 2017,nfl jersey cheap wholesale  the former Heisman Trophy runner-up could become a star behind Cam Newton.

Philadelphia 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers have an easier path than the Rockets or Spurs. They can either trade or waive and “stretch” Jerryd Bayless to have nearly enough cap room to hand James a max contract in free agency.

Bayless, owed only $8.6 million for next season, has a far less onerous contract than Deng and Anderson. If the Sixers clear his salary entirely, they’d have the room for James but might need to clear others like Furkan Korkmaz, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and/or Justin Anderson to keep others like T.J. McConnell.

Stretching Bayless would require dumping a number of the aforementioned players since he would earn $2.9 million from Philadelphia over the next three seasons.

The bigger challenge would be finding a way to keep JJ Redick. If he wants to stay, he might be looking at a paycut from $23 million to the Sixers’ $4.4 million exception.

Bigger picture, the 76ers can offer James a home in the East, far away from the rival Golden State Warriors. That could be a significant deciding factor.

Boston Celtics

Could James pair back up with Kyrie Irving?nfl jerseys nike cheap

The Celtics are already one of the best teams in the East. With James, they’d be a true powerhouse.

However, Boston is well over the salary cap, so an opt-in-and-trade would be the logical route for James.

Would Gordon Hayward for James make sense for both organizations? Would it make sense for James?

Boston could be an interesting under-the-radar destination.      cheap nike nfl jerseys china

Family could keep James right where he is in Cleveland. If so, the Cavaliers would need to bolster their roster to give James more support.

Unsigned or opted into the final year of his deal, James would take up roughly $35 million of Cleveland’s cap space. The Cavs would have to offload an unrealistic amount of salary to have any spending power.

Instead, Cleveland would need to think about trades. But can the Cavs improve in the short term if they deal players like Kevin Love or George Hill?new nike nfl jerseys cheap

How about a do-over, sending Love back to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Andrew Wiggins?

Cleveland will draft eighth overall on June 21. Perhaps a young player can change the complexion of the franchise, like Jayson Tatum with the Celtics.

Cleveland could also look to trade that pick, but that’s a lot to ask without a long-term commitment from James.buy nike nfl jerseys cheap

Dallas Cowboys: Dak Prescott, Quarterback

Running back Ezekiel Elliott may be more talented, but there is no young player in Dallas who is going to influence wins and losses more than quarterback Dak Prescott.

According to Pro Football Reference’s expected points model, Dallas’ rushing offense was best in the league with 47 points over expectation last year. So the run game seems solid, but when Prescott dropped from a 104.9 passer rating in 2016 to an 86.6 passer rating in 2017, Dallas went from a number one seed in the NFC to missing the playoffs completely.

But he’s still just a 24-year-old passer who posted the most efficient rookie season of any passer ever. Playing under a cost-controlled rookie contract, Prescott has years to prove that he still is the player from 2016 before Dallas even thinks about moving on.nfl jersey factory

It is clear at this point that 2015 first-round pick Shane Ray will not starting opposite Von Miller long-term. Going into the draft, it did not seem that the Denver Broncos had a need at outside linebacker, with Miller, Ray and Shaquil Barrett on the roster. nfl jersey wholesale authentic But the team used its fifth overall selection on Bradley Chubb, a 4-3 defensive end from North Carolina State, and changed the dynamics in Denver completely.

Now, it’s almost impossible to think that Chubb isn’t the full-time starter by 2019, with him playing at least a rotational role as a rookie. The Broncos have long searched for DeMarcus Ware’s replacement across from Miller. Years later, Chubb will look to fill his shoes.

At the college level, Miller, now an All-Pro pass-rusher, posted 33 sacks and 50.5 tackles for a loss in four years at Texas A&M. Chubb had 25 sacks and 54.5 tackles for a loss at North Carolina State. At worst, he should develop into one of the best complementary pass-rushers in the league as the Broncos edge toward the portion of Miller’s contract which jumps up to $25 million cap hits annually.

The last Detroit Lions player to rush for 100 yards in a game was Reggie Bush on Thanksgiving of 2013. At that time, Detroit’s 2018 second-round pick, Kerryon Johnson, was a junior in high school. Hopefully, Johnson is able to change the Lions’ rushing woes.jerseys nfl wholesale

While offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter has put more on quarterback Matthew Stafford’s plate as a reaction to their running back and offensive line issues over the years, that is going to have to change at some point. With three top-100 picks spent on offensive linemen over the last three drafts, along with the price tags of T.J. Lang and Ricky Wagner, Detroit should be able to run the ball this year with even just a functional back.cheap womens nfl jerseys china

This puts Johnson, who played in Gus Malzahn’s single-wing-heavy offense at Auburn, in a good position to live up to expectations. After 11 100-yard efforts over the last two seasons, it’s hard to imagine that Johnson won’t be the one to supplant Bush as Detroit’s most recent triple-digit rusher nfl womens jersey.

Khalil Mack Reportedly Not Expected at Raiders Minicamp amid Contract Holdout

Khalil Mack’s contract holdout is going to extend to mandatory workouts.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported the Oakland Raiders are not expecting Mack to show up for mandatory minicamp this week. Mack has missed all of the team’s voluntary workouts while trying to land a long-term contract extension.where to find nfl jerseys

The Raiders are now allowed to fine Mack for his absences.

Mack, 27, was the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2016 and has made the Pro Bowl each of the last three seasons. He recorded 78 tackles and 10.5 sacks in 2017 and was the lone star on a weak Raiders pass rush.where to find cheap nfl jerseys

Oakland is scheduled to pay Mack $13.9 million this season as part of the fifth-year option in his rookie contract.

Mack’s decision to hold out during the offseason is made more potentially damaging because the Raiders have a new coaching staff under Jon Gruden. Defensive coordinator Paul Guenther told reporters last week that Mack will be behind once he does report to the team.

“He’s going to have a lot of catching up to do. We’re going to have to have a plan for that, for sure,” Guenther said. “Really, I’m concerned about the guys that are here now working. These guys have been busting their tails every day—coming in early, meeting with the coaches, being great in the meeting rooms, communicating on the field.”authentic nfl cheap jerseys

Gruden also has sway with the Raiders’ football operations under his massive new 10-year contract, so it’s unclear if the holdout will affect his relationship with the team’s best player. Either way, Mack has more than played his way into earning a new contract.

Mack’s 40.5 sacks are tied for the sixth-most in the NFL over the last four seasons. cheap nfl jerseys from usa

LB Tremaine Edmunds, Buffalo Bills

We’ll circle back to the Bills. Unlike Allen, linebacker Tremaine Edmunds has a clear path to a starting position.cheap womens nfl jerseys china

Preston Brown started 62 games at linebacker over the last four years but signed with the Cincinnati Bengals in the offseason, leaving a vacant spot for the rookie in the middle. Cornerback Tre’Davious White, an impact first-year starter in 2017, raved about Edmunds on Good Morning Football (h/t Dominic LoVallo of the team’s official website):

“This is an alpha-male here. The guy goes sideline to sideline, he’s a 4.4 guy. He has tremendous range, athleticism and his knowledge of the game is next to none. I feel like by training camp, he’s going to be probably one of the best young linebackers in this league. This guy, since the first day he got here, he’s commanded the huddle on the defensive side of the ball. And you can tell by OTAs and the offseason that he’s been getting tremendously comfortable in the playbook.”

Just last year,nfl womens jersey  White was in Edmunds’ shoes, a first-round pick with high expectations.cheap nfl jerseys for women

Based on White’s assessment, Edmunds has already shown traits coaches want in their quarterback of the defense, which include leadership skills and a strong understanding of schemes. McDermott may utilize Edmunds to strengthen the pass rush if Shaq Lawson and Jerry Hughes struggle to apply pressure up front.

The Detroit Lions didn’t make a fantasy football-friendly pick at No. 20. However, offensive lineman Frank Ragnow should help balance the team’s offensive attack.buy nfl jerseys in bulk

The front office signed nfl jersey online running back LeGarrette Blount and drafted ball-carrier Kerryon Johnson in the second round, which shows a concerted effort to elevate the ground game.

The Lions backfield may not yield a clear-cut workhorse, but Ragnow, who will play guard or center, will have to clear lanes either way.

Detroit finished 28th or worse in rushing yards in each of the past four seasons. The added talent at running back and a fortified interior offensive line could serve as much-needed complements to quarterback Matthew Stafford. For Ragnow, it’s a matter of where he’ll start in Week 1. For now, it looks like that may be left guard.nike nfl womens jerseys

Los Angeles Chargers: WR Mike Williams

The No. 7 pick in 2017, Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams caught just 47.8 percent of the passes thrown his way and failed to score a touchdown in 10 games after suffering a back injury in rookie minicamp.

But it might be a different story this spring.nfl nike jerseys cheap china

ric D. Williams wrote Williams looked “more confident and explosive” and passed on a glowing review from top wideout Keenan Allen:

“I see a lot of potential. Last year, he had a lot of potential as well, but I could tell he put in a little bit more work this offseason. I think he’s ready to go.

“[Last year] he wasn’t sure about all the plays. This year, he acts like he’s been in the playbook. When he runs routes, he’s on depth. Today, he was more physical when he was getting pressed. He looked good.”

It’s early, and there hasn’t been a lot of buzz coming out of Chargers camp,nike jerseys nfl cheap  but it seems Williams will have a shot to win the No. 2 receiver job behind Allen.

Dispatches from Myles Simmons of the team’s official website indicated the Los Angeles Rams have been rolling on offense throughout OTAs, and it sounds as though second-year tight end Gerald Everett is a big part of that.

The second-round pick caught only 16 passes while backing up cheap nike nfl jerseys from china  Tyler Higbee last season, but a strong run could help him leapfrog Higbee on the depth chart.cheap official nike nfl jerseys

“Gerald Everett’s been one of the guys that’s stood out really throughout the offseason program so far in terms of getting better,” Rams head coach Sean McVay said, per Cameron DaSilva of Rams Wire. “You see the overall athleticism; he’s getting better with the attention to detail.”

As Kristen Lago of the team’s official website pointed out, Everett is more confident this offseason.

“I don’t have to think as much,” he said. “Last year, I was spinning to say the least. But now that I can finally relax and just compete, it feels pretty good.”

Everett vs. Higbee will be fun to watch in July and August.nfl cheap nike jerseys

Jacksonville Jaguars: TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins

Things didn’t quite pan out for 2014 second-round pick Austin Seferian-Jenkins with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New York Jets, but the physically marvelous tight end’s third team might be the charm.

Jay Johnson of the Jags Wire noted Thursday that “Seferian-Jenkins has come on strong and has established himself as Blake Bortles’ favorite target” at Jacksonville’s OTAs.

And it seems that chemistry is easy to pick up on.

Mike Kaye of First Coast News wrote earlier in the week that Bortles and ASJ have “developed a downfield rhythm during workouts.”cheap nike nfl jerseys free shipping

“Bortles has regularly been able to connect with Seferian-Jenkins on downfield lobs,” added Kaye. “Seferian-Jenkins’ ability to get open down the seam of the defense has been an ongoing feature of the Jaguars’ offense during OTAs.”

And Phillip Heilman of Jacksonville.com tweeted that Seferian-Jenkins “should set a career high in receiving yards and touchdowns” because “he’s looked that good” at OTAs.

This might be the year the 6’5″, 262-pound former Washington star finally breaks out at the NFL level. nfl cheap jerseys nike

The Kansas City Chiefs spent big bucks on wide receiver Sammy Watkins this offseason, and in the early going, the 2014 No. 4 overall pick has delivered.

Watkins opened OTAs making one-handed catches all over the field, and he’s left an impression on those in attendance. nfl nike jerseys for cheap

“Watkins has shown his skills as a pass catcher these last two weeks,” wrote KC Kingdom’s Chris Taylor. “Wowing his coaches and teammates alike with his ability to snatch and grab every ball thrown his direction. His circus catches have been a staple in Chiefs camp thus far.”nike nfl jerseys wholesale cheap

Most importantly, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid seems to be impressed with his new offensive toy.

“Every day he does something a little better than he did the day before,” Reid said last week, per BJ Kissel of the team’s official website. “You see the quickness, the speed, the strength—phenomenal strength off the ball. You know we can’t do bump and run here but you get an idea when he comes off the ball he comes off with a lot of energy and strength. Again, you guys have been out here, so you know this, but his ability to catch the football is incredible, he has very good hands.”nike cheap nfl jerseys

“We are moving him all over the place and he’s handled it,” he added this week, per Dee Jackson of KSHB. “We’ve overloaded him. That’s how we do in this offense. That’s something new for him. You can tell he’s a guy that takes it away from here and studies.”nike nfl cheap jerseys

So far, so good.

Green Bay Packers: WR Randall Cobb

Contract: Four years, $40 million order cheap nfl jerseys

The 2017 season was disappointing for just about everyone involved in Green Bay’s offense. That’s what happens when Aaron Rodgers misses more than half the season with a broken collarbone and backup Brett Hundley isn’t quite ready for prime time.

But for Randall Cobb, it’s been a series of relative disappointments over the last few years. The Packers rewarded him with a four-year, $40 million contract with $17 million guaranteed in 2015 after a 91-catch, 1,287-yard season in 2014. But injuries and relative ineffectiveness have marked Cobb’s career since then. He did manage 79 catches for 829 yards in the first season of his new contract, but has just 1,263 yards total in 2016 and 2017.nike nfl jersey china

Cobb found himself behind Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams in Green Bay’s receiver corps, and the final year of his contract presents the Packers with a serious value problem. Cobb is due $8.6 million in base salary, and his cap number is $12.7 million. The team would incur a dead cap charge of just $3.5 million by releasing him, so it’s pretty clear that the Packers hope Cobb can turn it around.

Contract: Four years, $28 million youth nfl jerseys

After four years in the Chiefs’ offensive line, where he played both guard and center, the former sixth-rounder from Tennessee signed a four-year, $28 million contract with the Texans that includes $13 million guaranteed and contains $7 million cap hits for the team in each of those four seasons.cheap nfl jersey china

It’s not a bad deal for an upper-level interior offensive lineman, and Fulton showed both strength and agility when playing center for Kansas City last season. The Texans have certainly had their share of self-inflicted offensive line issues over the last few years, and getting a reliable pro in the middle of that line would be of great benefit to quarterback Deshaun Watson and the rest of Houston’s skill players.wholesale nfl jerseys supply

But the deal is based on a bit of projection—Fulton hasn’t been a 16-game starter since his rookie campaign, and he’d better work out at center for the Texans, because his tape shows some vulnerability to power when he’s on an island as a guard. This isn’t a massive overpayment, more an indication of how much the Texans need to get something right along their line.cheap nfl jersey from china

Denver Broncos: OT Menelik Watson

Contract: Three years, $18.4 million cheapest nfl jerseys online

Through three seasons with the Oakland Raiders, 2013 second-round pick Menelik Watson presented two issues on a regular basis: He struggled to stay healthy, and when he was on the field, his performances were often subpar. Watson is an athletic blocker, but that doesn’t make up for his frequent lapses in technique.

The Broncos saw something in him, as they signed him to a three-year, $18.4 million contract with $5.5 million guaranteed in March of 2017. That doesn’t sound like a lot for a tackle, but when you consider Watson’s 2017 performance versus the corresponding nfl jerseys store salary cap hits, the deal starts to look disastrous. Watson has a cap number over $7 million in both 2018 and 2019, and if the Broncos were to cut him in 2018, they’d still be on the hook for more than $8 million in salary cap responsibility.

All this for a player who made it though just seven games last season and, per Pro Football Focus, allowed a league-leading nine sacks through that time.

Contract: Three years, $28.5 million

When the Lions signed Lang to a three-year, $28.5 million contract with $19 million guaranteed last March, it was the culmination of Lang’s free-agent tour that had him thinking about re-signing with the Packers or possibly landing in Seattle. In the end, Detroit won the battle, but their short-term financial burden might now be a problem.nfl authentic jerseys wholesale

Lang is one of the best pass-blocking guards in the league when he’s healthy, but he hasn’t been healthy in either of the last two seasons. His eight-year tenure with the Packers ended with foot and hip injuries that forced offseason surgery, and he missed three games with the Lions last season as he struggled to play through back and foot injuries as well as concussion issues.cheap nfl womens jerseys

2018 is the important season for both sides. Lang carries a cap responsibility of $10.9 million this season, and the dead money for any potential release is prohibitive until 2019. Lang turned 30 last September, and if he’s not able to turn around this injury streak, his value to the Lions could be minimal.where to buy official nfl jerseys
