“A quick recap: Arizona used its first-round pick to select Temple linebacker/pass rusher Haason Reddick, then grabbed Washington safety/corner Budda Baker in the second, while Carolina’s top two selections were Stanford running back/receiver/returner extraordinaire Christian McCaffrey and Ohio State hybrid receiver/running back Curtis Samuel. Collectively, these four picks are a great illustration of a simple truth: The NFL is a matchup league.”
This is true. College offenses have been all about finding matchups that benefit the offense. This is why scoring in the college game is through the roof, because defenses don’t have has many playmakers as offenses do, in general. The NFL is headed that way too, and that’s why Carolina made the picks they did. To create matchup problems. They will be fun to watch, if nothing else!
