The San Francisco 49ers rookie class of last season performed to outstanding levels, with Nick Bosa winning Defensive Rookie of the Year. Deebo Samuel looking like a future go-to receiver for Jimmy Garoppolo with his versatility and his receiving skills. Jalen Hurd has yet to play a game but showed upside during the offseason. Justin Skule, who filled in admirably for Joe Staley and Mitch Wishnowsky, who averaged of 44.9 yards per punt. It was good enough for the Niners to be awarded the “Best Draft Class” award at the Combine this year. There is almost no way this draft class can live up to the power the last draft class had, but I’ll attempt to predict how the 49ers will make an attempt to change their future now.
The Jets had a really up and down season. They had everything from bringing in generational player Le’Veon Bell, to a laughing stock of a coach, Adam Gase. However, as the season progressed, the Jets’ flaws and weaknesses peaked and opposing defenses began to target the Jets weakness. To make matters even worse, we had Sam Darnold out for half the season because of Mono, and our offensive line was abysmal at best. Bell had absolutely no room to run, Darnold had no time in the pocket, and to make things even worse, we had no playmakers on the outside.

After making the playoffs in 2017 and 2018, it was thought the Colorado Rockies would contend in the National League West, or at least find themselves in the playoffs, none of that would be the case. Colorado instead was not a factor at all in 2019, finishing fourth in the NL West with a 71-91 record. Continue reading →
The Texans were knocked out in the divisional round by the eventual Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs. They finished the year without a general manager and are looking to go into the draft with Bill O’Brien in that de facto role. O’Brien made significant moves during the season, sending Jadeveon Clowney to the Seahawks for a bag of chips, but sending two first-round picks to bring in Laremy Tunsil. Without a first-round pick, the team will have a lot of trouble finding players in the draft to fill their needs. I listed the Texans’ biggest needs as interior defensive line, edge rusher, and cornerback.
