Students predict bust and success for newly drafted players in the NFL
May 16, 2014James F Byrnes Freshman Academy
There are many predictions of failure and success for players in the 2014 NFL Draft. Players in the draft may not be what they are claimed to be and some may surpass their expectations.
Derek Carr, Fresno State quarterback, is one of the first-round draft bust candidates because he has yet to prove that he is able to go against more experienced opponents.
Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville quarterback, is also a candidate for a bust because of his lack of arm power and his lack of leadership skills, but Bridgewater is a very accurate QB.
Josh Johnson, student at BFA claims that Blake Bortles , University of Central Florida (UCF) quarterback will be a bust and said, “I feel that he is overrated and hasn’t proven himself on a high level playing ability.”
TJ Kelley, student at BFA said, “Calvin Pryor will be the most successful because he is a good defensive back.”
Josh Johnson explained the team he believes will be most improved is the “Seattle Seahawks because they added on to their offense with receivers from the draft and also re-signed Richard Sherman.”
Josh also explained how the Dallas Cowboys made the “worst decision in the draft” and the Pittsburgh Steelers and The Cleveland Browns made the “best decision.”
Dallas Cowboys drafted Zack Martin, Offensive Tackle for Notre Dame, for their first round pick. Cleveland Browns drafted Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M quarterback, first round, and Pittsburgh selected Ryan Shazier, Ohio State linebacker, for their first-round pick.
“I really expected Johnny Manziel to be drafted higher and Blake Bortles to be drafted lower,” Johnson also surprisingly said.
