This quarterback class has gotten much attention with at least five expected to go in the first round, including four in the top 10 and possibly even the top five. But NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock is among those not completely sold on any of them.

No one would consider three of the four quarterbacks in the championship round last season franchise quarterbacks. But one of them, Nick Foles, won Super Bowl MVP honors over Tom Brady.
So the ‘franchise’ quarterback situation is riveting, especially when you kind of look at Case Keenum goes to an NFC Championship game. Blake Bortles, although he was a top-10 pick, was not considered a high-level franchise quarterback, and he goes to the AFC Championship game, and Nick Foles wins a Super Bowl with the Eagles, Mayock said. Is that an aberration or a trend?

Those quarterback conversations I’ve had with most of the league over the last month, and trust me, it’s really been fascinating.
The NFL saw a full slate of games on Christmas Eve in 2016 and had four games over two weekends on Saturdays last year. The Chicago Bears faced the Detroit Lions and the Los Angeles Chargers faced the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 15, and the Indianapolis Colts played the Baltimore Authentic Pavol Demitra Jersey Ravens and the Minnesota Vikings faced the Green Bay Packers in Week 16.
The NFL doesn’t play Saturday games while the college football regular season is ongoing, but a few games are generally scheduled on Saturdays in December. If Christmas Day falls on a Sunday, then the majority of the league’s schedule is played on Saturday instead.

Fomer Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has expressed a desire to remain in the NFC East so he can play his former team two times a year. He also seemed to indicate that the New York Giants would be among his top choices if he alone could pick a destination to play for in 2018.
