STEELERS 2018 Draft Review

The Steelers turned their eyes away from contract squabbles with LeVeon Bell just long enough to put together another of their annually solid Draft efforts. That would be in spite of what Big Ben seems to think of it. One of the biggest tasks at hand for the organization was bolstering their Defense after the loss of RYAN… Read More »

CHARGERS 2018 Draft Review

I am sure that it will surprise most of you when I remind you that the Chargers were the best team in the NFL to miss the Play-Offs last season. But most NFL pundits would agree with me. This has become the “lost franchise” with their move to L.A., without really having a home there, or more importantly… Read More »

BRONCOS 2018 Draft Reveiw

I think most of you realize that overall I am a big fan of John Elway in his role of running the Broncos organization. Like any personnel evaluator he makes his share of mistakes, but he has made some solid decisions in manipulating his roster and is not afraid to admit his mistakes and move on. Big John… Read More »

COWBOYS 2018 Draft Review

The 2018 NFL Draft was pretty much a home game for the Cowboys, as Jerry’s World became the first actual stadium to host the League’s Draft. They even tried to soften the annual boo-fest that fans have been unleashing on Commissioner Roger Goodell the past few years but to no avail. Even sending ex-Cowboys greats STAUBACH-AIKMAN-WITTEN out on… Read More »

PANTHERS 2018 Draft Review

A good friend and respected Draftnik mentioned that he wondered what I thought about the Panthers 2018 Draft effort. That sounded like a solid enough reason to add my answer as one of our team draft reviews. So here we go for Riverboat Ron’s team. The team had the exactly the right number of Picks when the dust… Read More »


It only seems logical to me that when a team has a new GM and two of them are in the top 4 picks in a Draft then we should take a look at what that team did. Even though I will confine my thoughts for today to the actual 2018 Draft please remember that there is a… Read More »


The Rams found themselves in a rather unique, perhaps enviable position, when the 2018 Draft began. They had no Picks until Round 3, and weren’t bothered by that in the least. Why is that, you might ask, if you have failed to pay attention to their off-season player acquisitions over the past month or so. The team added… Read More »

PACKERS 2018 Draft Review

The Pack went into the Draft with the most picks of any team in the League at 12. Certainly a nice situation to be in for new GB BRIAN GUTEKUNST. The team did in the end live up to its stated course of action when cameras in the Packers draft room showed former GM Ted Thompson perched on… Read More »


I think it is safe to say that overall I am not a big DAVE GETTLEMAN fan. I thought the Giants might have made a big mistake bringing him back to the big Apple to run their organization. He’s a bit coarse and brash for my taste. But give the devil his due, so to speak. As the… Read More »

2018 NFL Draft Bottom Feeders

Every fan base tingles with the excitement of new players brought to their team by the annual Draft process. But realistically all Draft efforts are not going to push teams over the hump. The opportunity is, in theory, equal, but results may vary. So at the risk of crushing fan base hopes the week after the Draft here… Read More »

Who’s Left URFA Prospects

News has been a tad slow this year relative to exactly who is signing with who in the Rookie Free Agent marketplace. But fear not. You’ll be struggling to learn not only your favorite teams draftees but fifteen or more URFA soon. Just to give you a bit of a head start here are Pigskin’s best undrafted players… Read More »

2018 DRAFT WRAP Part 1

It is my intention to be writing almost exclusively for the next few weeks about the recently concluded. So for those of you with attention deficit disorder adios real soon and I suggest you check back at this spot around June. IN the meantime for you hard cores who do NOT consider anything visible in your rear view… Read More »

Pigskin’s Best Left

Like everyone else I want to give you my list of best players still available for Day 3 of the Draft. #68 TYRELL CROSBY OT #63 KYLE LAULETTA QB #69 EQUANIMEOUS ST. BROWN WR #71 TRENTON THOMPSON DT #74 DUKE EJIOFOR DE #76 MAURICE HURST DT #77 ANTHONY AVERETT CB #80 TIM SETTLE DT #82 JOSH SWEAT DE… Read More »


I want to get my ballot in early, and I am not sucking up to the boss. I luv the work GETTLEMAN hasv done thru 3 Rounds for the GIANTS! Great PICKS so far. PIGSKIN

RAIDERS are channeling their AL DAVIS with KEY Pick. And by the way REGGIE McKENZIE isthe GM not JON GRUDEN as TREY WINGO would have you believe. PIGSKIN

Loreno Carter heads to Giants and it warms the heart of Draftnik Joe Everett fellow cellist. Pigskin

Guess I got my answer on Guice. James Washington. Pick for Steelers replces BRYANT who was traded for #rd Round Pick last night. Still curious to see when and how they acquire some depth at he RB position. Pigskin

One of my favorite guys! the net Antonio Borwn for Trubisky! Way to go former walk-on. Pigskin

Back in the old days Mel KIPer would rip a team a new asshole for reaching 4 Rounds for a Pick. The Andy Reid era is on a roll in KC. Good luck folks! Pigskin

Looks like Packers have blinders on again and think they have only one issue to deal with. I wanna see how much QB pressure JACKSON can generate when they slide him in as a DT on 3rd Down this season. Let’s get another one next Round. Pigskin Maybe we’ll call Brian Gutekunst a 1 Trick Pony from now… Read More »

I am quite frankly sick and tired of the ESPN network swith=ching channels in the middle of things. Pick a damn channel and stick with it guys. Stop running things like a Mickey Mouse Network! Pigskin

OK short but sweet someone better tell me soon what the scoop is with GUICE, as the 6th RB not from LSU is selected. GUICE begins to seem like a guy with the plague! Pigskin


THis selection may precipitate some serious shuffling along Chicago’s OL given that DANIELS may win the OC job right away. Could Kyle Long end up out at OT, with WHITEHAIR SLIDING TO OG from OC? Pigskin


This team needs a No. 1 RB now that the DOUG MARTIN era is over in Tampa. If GUICE/LSU does not go here then i want ti know what the medical problem is and/or off-field issues are. Pigskin

How about some defensive help like Sam Hubbard for the COLTS. Versatile player who makes things happen when on the field. Reminds me of former Buckeye MIKE VRABEL. MIGHT END UP AS THEIR 3RD TE when not playing D. Pigskin If not I like D>J> CHARK to entice LUCK to get well soon.
