There are still months until the NFL season begins, but there have also been months and months of speculation about this year’s draft pick.
We know now who has the picks and in which order (with a little bit of trading going on too) but the weird thing is, by Sunday morning, players will have actual teams they’re assigned too, and we can start thinking how they may fit into their franchises.
All the talk pre game was how the Carolina Panthers were waltzing their way to their first Super Bowl victory. It was little wonder, you’re talking about a team who went through the whole of the season with just one loss, who had scored more points than any other side in the NFL and that’s before you consider the mercurial talents of their quarterback Cam Newton. He doesn’t just have superb placement of the ball, he is athletic and can run that ball too.
Byron Chamberlain is part of a great legacy with the Denver Broncos. He won Super Bowl XXXII and XXXIII at the end of the nineties, heralding the only time the great side has won the most coveted prize in American Football.
It is something he is incredibly proud of but as a Broncos fan, it’s also something of a legacy that can’t continue.
