For starters Ryquell Armstead Jersey , there was a record-setting 1,371 touchdowns scored this season and 73 games were decided by three points or less. Because of that combination of offense and parity, all of the major networks carrying the NFL experienced significant increases in viewership throughout the season. Overall viewership was up roughly five percent from the year prior and NFL games made up 46 of the top 50 most-watched shows on cable - even the disappointing wild card games experienced an increase in year-over-year viewership for the first time in five years.A lot of the offense and excitement came from the league's impressive rookies and second-year players like New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley, Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield, and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, both of whom appear to be future Hall of Famers based on talent alone. Other rookies like Nick Chubb, Calvin Ridley, D.J. Moore, and Kerryon Johnson all made positive impacts with their respective teams. Of course Will Harris Jersey , an influx of fresh talent means some veteran players were pushed out of the league either by their own accord or as a result of not being able to earn a roster spot anymore. Players like Jason Witten and Eric Decker announced their retirement, while Le'Veon Bell was absent for a whole different reason. And those are just a couple of the talented players who didn't suit up during the 2018 regular season. Pundits and executives will often claim that a bad draft pick, especially at a spot like quarterback, can set you back five years. Others will claim you really can't examine a draft class until at least five years later.Today, as the NFL has finally returned and we're now getting to see this year's rookie class in action, let's think back to the 2012 NFL Draft. At first, the Draft was about "Suck for Luck" before becoming focused around Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III; and, if you looked closely, you'd see enough hype about Trent Richardson http://www.lionsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-austin-bryant-jersey , Justin Blackmon, and Quinton Coples in there as well.You notice something about most of those names? They were busts! Let's take a look back at a draft that produced some stars, but also some of the more memorable busts in recent history.Believe it or not, there are some basic ground rules here, The first one should be pretty obvious - if you're a bust, you had to have either gone in the first two rounds. I don't understand the argument for saying a fourth-rounder was a bust on a list like this; a bad draft pick, sure, but a bust?On the other side of the spectrum, a "star" on this list can't have come from the first two rounds so guys like Bobby Wagner Rashan Gary Jersey , Lavonte David, Andrew Luck, and others are ineligible. But Alfred Morris, Kirk Cousins, and even undrafted players like Johnny Hekker would be eligible.
