DeShone Kizer hopes to channel Tom Brady, Cam Newton to be the best of all time

DeShone Kizer is confident in his abilities, that much is for sure.

The Notre Dame quarterback told USA Today’s Tom Pelissero that he believes he could end up being the best quarterback of all time.

“No one else can do what I can do,” Kizer told USA Today. “And I’ve truly figured out in this (draft) process, if I can maximize all my potential in every aspect of the game – this is bold – I do have the ability to be the greatest quarterback to ever play. Imagine taking (Tom) Brady’s intellect and Brady’s preparation and putting it on a guy with Cam Newton’s body. Why can’t I be the greatest? The only thing stopping me from it is me. That’s what’s driving me now.”

Aaaaaaand then both went in the top 10, Fournette to the Jaguars and McCaffrey to the Panthers, which would seem to indicate NFL general managers didn’t care much about players with injury issues skipping December bowl games. Maybe the NFL also likes their RBs to have minimal tread on the tires, too.

Especially since later in Michigan’s bowl, star tight end Jake Butt tore his ACL, as did McCaffrey’s QB in the Sun Bowl, less-severe versions of what happened to Notre Dame LB Jaylon Smith in the Fiesta the year prior. When even healthy players can suffer crucial damage in these semi-exhibitions that don’t even count toward NCAA records, any prospects with any worries should be excused.

So does the NFL care about bowl game attendance? This draft was a good test. And Cheap Jerseys To Design with Fournette and McCaffrey going early, we might ought to expect more bowl absentees again Cheap Jerseys Outlets next season.

It’s possible that the Pacers could trouble James’ Cavaliers

The 2017 NBA Playoffs begins with an old grudge match between LeBron James and some of his biggest rivals: Paul George and Lance Stephenson. James met those two and the Indiana Pacers for three straight years from 2012-14, engaging in some bitter playoff battles. The Pacers are a much weaker team than they were then, but Cheap Jerseys Wholesale China there will be plenty of nostalgia in this series.

It’s possible that the Pacers could trouble James’ Cavaliers, too. Cleveland struggled down the stretch this season, going just 14-15 after the All-Star Break. The Cavaliers surrendered 111.2 points per 100 possessions in those 29 games, the second-worst mark in the NBA. James’ teams have a history of flipping the switch, but this is still a bad omen.

The Pacers enter the playoffs playing their best ball of an uneven season. They’re on a five-game winning streak and seem to have discovered an identity after an odd season. George has been scorching from the field since the All-Star break, while Stephenson has provided new energy since he arrived at the end of March.

These two teams recently gave us one of the games of the season back on April 2. James lit up the Pacers for a 41-point triple double, but George matched him shot for shot in scoring 43. It eventually ended with a Cavaliers victory in double overtime, but Cavaliers fans may be worried that the competitiveness of Cheap Jerseys With Free Shipping that game was a harbinger of things to come.
