NFL Fans at LHS Excited For Upcoming Draft

Staff expresses their enthusiasm for the upcoming draft
National Football League
The NFL Draft takes place April 25 in Detroit, Mich.

With the NFL Draft almost underway, fans are excited to see who could be the future of their team. You can also feel the excitement among students and staff. With there being no current NFL teams in St. Louis, this has led to passionate fans for multiple teams.

Mr. Wheeler is a huge fan of the Los Angeles Rams, and they have the 19th pick. In the most recent mock draft from experts, the Rams are projected to trade their pick to the Washington Commanders.

“I trust in Les (Les Snead, Rams GM). Whatever we do tonight, it is the right move” Wheeler said. “I do think we need a complement to Kobie (Kobie Turner, DT), and a couple of offensive linemen for Stafford (Matthew Stafford, QB), and Kyren (Kyren Williams, RB), nonetheless I am content with whatever decision we make.”

Mr. Hill is a big fan of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and they have the 26th pick in this year’s draft. With their pick, the Bucs are projected to select edge tackle Daniel Verse.

“I like this pick, I am always down to invest in defense since we got rid of some veterans this past year, so to have a young spitfire will give some life back to the Bay. To have this kid and then Vita Vea (DT) on the inside has the potential to be a relentless match up for any team,” Hill passionately exclaims.

Mr. Barker is a superfan of the Cincinnati Bengals, and they have the 18th pick in the first round. The Bengals are projected to draft offensive tackle, Taliese Fuaga, out of Oregon State.

“If we get Fuaga, I will celebrate. Unfortunately, I think he will be gone, although I do think offensive tackle (is a position) that we will likely draft. If Fuaga is gone, and no good offensive tackles remain, I believe they will select either Byron Murphy, or Johnny Newton as their pick, both of them being defensive tackles,” Barker stated.

For all of the Chiefs fans reading, they have the last pick in the first round (32nd), due to them going all the way and winning the Super Bowl last year. The Chiefs are projected to pick Adonai Mitchell, wide receiver, from Texas. This would be a great pick for them, especially if previously future star wide receiver Rashee Rice’s situation makes him ineligible for the 2024 season. Even if they still have Rice on their roster, the wide receiver is about the only need, or even just want, for the current Chiefs roster.

No matter the team that you are ride or die for, the draft is a crucial part of an NFL team. It could create a whole new playstyle to the team, or it could result in a bunch of players who don’t end up ever playing. You can watch the draft tonight at 7 p.m., on ABC, ESPN, and the NFL Network.
