Hearst struggled early in his career, but he enjoyed a breakthrough in San Francisco with 1,570 yards and seven TDs in 1998. Hearst was a two-time Pro Bowl selection with the 49ers.
Warner was selected after John Elway and Eric Dickerson in the legendary 1983 NFL Draft, and the Penn State star didn’t disappoint with the Seahawks. He had four 1,000-yard seasons and hit the 1,400-yard mark twice over an eight-year NFL career.
Bush did help the Saints improve their win total by seven in his first season, and he added 477 catches for 3,598 yards out of the backfield. He never quite matched the hype coming out of USC, but he still had a productive NFL career.
In this mock draft, each of the last five picks would be fits for Cincinnati. If the draft really played out in this fashion, it wouldn’t be a shock to see the Bengals move back. But if they held at No. 12, taking the top available offensive lineman is the most viable outcome.
Washington would love to see Oakland pass on a player like Vea. That would open the team up to taking the draft’s top interior defensive lineman. Vea can help improve Washington’s run defense lining up next to Jonathan Allen.
An ankle injury literally slowed Landry down for much of the 2017 season. He’s a pass rusher with a game built around initial burst and speed. When he’s healthy, Landry is arguably the draft’s top pure edge-rusher.
TRADE: The Bulls are sending Jameer Nelson to the Pistons in exchange for Willie Reed, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports. Nelson will give Detroit a veteran presence and some much-needed help in the backcourt.
Multiple NBA teams are bailing on the trade game, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski . It looks like much of the league will be conservative ahead of the deadline and target the buyout market instead.
Several teams tell ESPN that they’re already easing out of the trade market today to focus on filling needs with what is expected to be a strong post-deadline pool of free agents in the buyout market.
Phoenix Suns: The Suns have the worst defense in the NBA coming out of the All-Star break, having allowed 110.6 points per 100 possessions through their 59 games. While the presence of Elfrid Payton should improve things some, the Suns — along with the Kings — are a defense to take advantage of every time they take the court no matter what type of fantasy league you play in.
