The world has been without Sports for about a month now. There is no NBA or MLB. There is absolutely nothing, but this past Thursday we had a little taste of sports again. The NFL Draft happened and all of the Coaches were at home along with the general managers and players.  All of the coaches were on zoom and they would facetime or call the players to tell them that they are being selected.
They still even booed Roger Goodell. It is tradition to boo the commissioner so people got to twitter and sent in their videos. Also during every team’s pick, 20 lucky fans were shown behind Goodell when he announced the picks. All of ESPN’s anchormen were all working from home and It is just crazy to think about the whole thing.
The Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl last year so what that means is that they had the last pick in the 1st round. After you win the Super Bowl you may think you don’t need anything, but there are so many little details that go into a team.
The Chiefs selected Clyde Edwards-Helaire Running Back out of LSU. LSU won the college National Championship last year, and Edwards-Helaire was a big part of that. He is only 5’7, but he is an absolute machine and can catch passes out of the backfield as well.
It seems as if any running back can succeed in Andy Reid’s offense. Hopefully, Edwards-Helaire can hold up those expectations. The Chiefs also had four more picks in the draft. Four picks that could help them repeat as Super Bowl Champions.
