New York Giants’ rookie running back Saquon Barkley had the best-selling jersey on draft night in Fanatics history, an official from the apparel merchandiser told Darren Rovell of ESPN.
Rovell said: The previous best-seller for Fanatics on draft night was Johnny Manziel in 2014. Because Manziel was drafted 20 picks Cheap Baseball Jerseys Kids behind Barkley, the Giants’ newest pick had a jump start of a couple of hours.
The Raiders padded their offensive line with the high-upside selection of offensive tackle Kolton Miller on Thursday evening. Now they can go after an aggressive, big-hitting linebacker in Malik Jefferson from Texas. Jefferson shined during the combine, putting up impressive numbers and flashing immense speed for someone of his 6’2, 236-pound stature. As long as he develops his recognition talents, this young man will be a force in the middle of the Oakland defense.
The’Phins went after a playmaking safety in Minkah Fitzpatrick in Round 1, which means they can now fill a need at guard with UTEP’s Will Hernandez. He’s the kind of road-grader the Miami run game needs to take a step forward.
After dealing Jacoby Brissett to the Colts and Jimmy Garoppolo to the 49ers last year, the Patriots were devoid of a young signal-caller to develop as Tom Brady’s successor. The organization eschewed a quarterback selection on the first day, instead selecting a pair of Georgia teammates in OL Isaiah Wynn and RB Sony Michel. By selecting Rudolph with a pick acquired from the Niners in the Garoppolo Cheap Dan Marino Jerseys deal, Bill Belichick can finally get another heir apparent for Brady.

He’s ideal [in] what you’re looking for in a receiver, McKenzie said, per the San Francisco Chronicle. He can play big, he plays fast. And he makes plays. And we think he can be a dynamic receiver for [quarterback] Derek [Carr].
Bryant generated big plays — and his fair share of headaches — in Pittsburgh, while operating as the subject of trade whispers for months on end.
In Oakland, the 6-foot-4 burner joins a pass-catching group that includes Amari Cooper, former Green Bay Pro Bowler Jordy Nelson and tight end Jared Cook.
Bryant, on paper, offers as much talent as any wideout league-wide. In real life, he’s battled injuries and suffered suspensions. Playing in just 36 of a possible 64 games during his four-year career, the talented receiver has plenty to prove.
McKenzie, though, offered a clean slate Thursday night, saying: We feel like we drafted Martavis Bryant.
The move adds a promising chip to Oakland’s offense. It’s now up to Bryant to stay on the field and deliver on his tantalizing potential.
