This NFL draft from this year is really going to shape up the next season of the NFL for the better because of how many teams are trying to rebuild right now including the Seattle Seahawks, the Denver Broncos, the Philadelphia Eagles, and many other teams. 

Hannah Burstein, an eighth-grader on the Wolves team, said, ”I can’t wait for this new season to come up!”

Many trades have been going around as well, such as Tyreek Hill from the Kansas City Chiefs to the Miami Dolphins, and Russell Wilson from the Seattle Seahawks to the Broncos, and many more

In the NFC East, the Cowboys selected nine new teammates. 

One of them to look out for is Tyler Smith at Offensive Tackle. Tyler is aggressive and a playing machine; however, due to his history, he is also a penalty machine, which is not the best for the Cowboys as they had the most penalties in all of last season. 

Hannah Burstein, an eighth-grader on the Wolves team, said, “As an NFL fan, I am really excited for this new season; however, as a Cowboys fan, I am a little worried about this next season with Tyler Smith now on our team.”

 Another team in the NFC East, the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles have selected five new teammates.

One young prospect to look out for is someone that the Eagles managed to draft in the first round. Coming in as the13th overall pick, Jordan Davis, Jordan is an aggressive DT (Defensive Tackle). Most people believe that Jordan will be able to do a lot for the Eagles, and are hoping that he stays with them for a while. 

“I am really looking forward to this upcoming season with all of the Eagles new teammates,” said Josh Boyce, an eighth-grader on the Wolves team. This year the birds may be going to the Super Bowl.”

Dylan McFeely, an eighth-grader on the Wolves team, is another Eagles fan that feels the same way. 

Dylan said, “I think the Eagles had the best draft and they are definitely going to win their division and have high super bowl chances.” 

In the NFC North, the Green Bay Packers selected seven new teammates. According to a poll on ACME Packing, most people believe that the Packers had an overall good draft, with 46% giving them an A and 46% giving them a B. 

One person to look out for is Christian Watson, one of the new wide receivers that the Packers have drafted. He is a young prospect for the Packers, known for being able to catch from anywhere on the field. 

“I am super excited that the Packers have finally drafted a few young receivers,” said Liam Ramnanan, an eighth-grader on the Wolves team. “I believe that they are what we need to have playoff or maybe even Super Bowl potential.”
