Starting Denver Broncos wide receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders are both on the wrong side of 30 now, and it’s possible they aren’t the players they once were. But the statistical dip they both experienced in 2017 might be related to the fact that the team stunk across the board.
They both received that honor in 2016 and still should be considered one of the best 1-2 wide receiver punches in the league
T.Y. Hilton and Jack Doyle were Pro Bowlers despite Luck’s absence in 2017, and they were even better with Luck under center in 2016. The former is one of the league’s top big-play threats, while the latter is a pass-catching machine who will have added support this year with the addition of free-agent tight end Eric Ebron.
But Luck and the Colts don’t fare particularly well on this list because they don’t have a lot of talent beyond Hilton, Doyle and Ebron, especially with Donte Moncrief and Frank Gore gone.
Chester Rogers (42 catches and one touchdown the last two years) and Ryan Grant (84 catches and six touchdowns during his first four seasons with the Redskins) will probably compete for a starting job next to Hilton. Second-year running back Marlon Mack just might be a default starter despite averaging just 3.8 yards per carry as a rookie fourth-round pick in 2017.
The analytics-driven outlet featured Cole, Rutgers ‘ left tackle, as an early offensive line name to know ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft due to his pass blocking efficiency. Cole had a PBE rating of 97.7 last fall, which was tied for 13th nationally.
PFF has had high praise for Cole in the past, naming him the Big Ten’s most underrated player in 2016. Now Cole is a senior, and he will be leaned on as the Scarlet Knights’ anchor up front as they attempt to qualify for a bowl game for the first time since 2014.
Cole considered leaving early for the NFL after last season, but opted to return to Rutgers for his final season. NFL.com rated him its No. 100 player to watch for next year’s draft, which would put Cole in range to potentially be picked in the first three rounds. His draft stock will go up or down, of course, based on how he plays this fall and then handles the pre-draft process next year.
If there is a technical error on how a former racetrack is defined we would need to do some housing keeping, Burzichelli said this week. The intention was to protect the lower backdoor of the state and the former Garden State site is intended for that. It’s an outpost to guard against an outflow of economy.
The final version of the legislation sought to redefine exactly where sports betting can take place.
