The NFL has become the source of a lot of debate recently with certain athletes deciding to take a knee during the National Anthem. It has sparked a controversy that has grown into a national debate that even the President of the United States has voiced his opinion on the matter. But whether you agree with the protests or disagree with them Melvin Gordon III Jersey , the one thing we can all agree on is the worst 15 NFL draft busts of all time.The phrase draft bust refers to a player that fell well short of expectations after being highly selected during the first round of the draft. Normally, a draft bust is someone that was drafted in the first round, with some rare exceptions of players taken in the second and third rounds many years ago. If a team invests a significant amount of money to sign a supposedly talented college player, they plan on using him and getting as much value from him as possible. They don't expect to take him first overall and cut him during his rookie season. That is just never in the future plans of NFL draft picks.So we decided to go out and find the 15 worst draft picks in NFL history and where they ended up when the dream of playing in the NFL came to a close.
A look at what’s happening around the majors Friday:
Colorado shortstop Trevor Story gets to play a big league game near home for the first time when the Rockies open an interleague series Friday night at the Texas Rangers, in a stadium only a few miles from his hometown of Irving, Texas. The Rockies last played at Texas in 2016, which was Story’s standout rookie season. But Story, the 45th overall pick in the 2011 draft out of Irving High, suffered a season-ending left thumb injury about two weeks before that series. Another Texas native starts the opener for the Rockies in right-hander Chad Bettis (4-1) http://www.chargersfootballauthentics.com/joey-bosa-jersey-authentic , who is from Lubbock and went to Texas Tech. He got a no decision in the Rockies’ 12-9 win during that August 2016 series when he allowed five runs in five innings.
Two of the National League’s top pitchers this season will face off when the Chicago Cubs open a weekend series at the St. Louis Cardinals. Jon Lester (7-2) takes the mound for the Cubs, who are coming off two straight losses at Milwaukee, and the left-hander is fourth in the NL in ERA (2.22). Michael Wacha, meanwhile, is 8-1 and seventh in the league with a 2.47 ERA – providing a much-needed boost for a Cardinals team that’s 4-5 in its last nine games against Miami, Cincinnati and San Diego.
BACK IN TOWN
Nathan Eovaldi (1-1) takes the ball for the Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium, his fourth outing since becoming the 12th pitcher to start a major league game following multiple Tommy John surgeries. Eovaldi pitched for the Yankees from 2015-16, going 14-3 for them in 2015, but has never faced New York. ”I wish I would have been able to finish on a healthy note. Other than that Quinnen Williams Jersey , I really enjoyed my time there,” Eovaldi said.
Jonathan Loaisiga comes up from Double-A Trenton to make his big league debut for the Yankees, starting in place of injured Masahiro Tanaka. The 23-year-old Loaisiga, from Nicaragua, returned to the mound last year from Tommy John surgery. ”Super excited. This is a great opportunity the Yankees are giving me,” Loaisiga said through a translator. ”It’s been a tough road for me to get here and now it’s about enjoying this moment.”
Gio Gonzalez (6-2, 2.65 ERA) had his worst start of the season in his last outing, allowing four runs in 3 1/3 innings against the San Francisco Giants last week. The Washington Nationals left-hander will return to the mound when he makes an interleague start against the Toronto Blue Jays.
