Although underrated throughout his high school recruitment, Zukudo couldn’t care less, as he’s found a home where he’ll be cared for and developed.
I’m underrated but I really don’t care, he said. Obviously, Rutgers is first to give me an opportunity. They see what I’m capable of, what I’m going to turn out to be in the future.
So I really don’t mind. Everyone is great in high school, but when you get to college it doesn’t matter because you start a new future. So college is where it matters. I’m a very big guy. I’m 6-4, 215, but can really move. Coaches have told me I’m one of those rare athletes, so I’ll be fine.
Pressure comes with being in the NFL, especially when you enter as first-round pick. The Browns took Ward because they felt like they needed a press cornerback more than another pass rusher. As Williams explained to Peter King (writing for The MMQB at the time), they’re hoping better coverage downfield will help guys like Garrett get more sacks since opposing quarterbacks will be forced to hold onto the ball longer. On Thursday, Williams called Ward one of the best press guys that I have seen in the last few years at this level. It seems like established players on the Browns would agree.
More than that, though, when it comes to Verlander’s 2018 season, I keep coming back to three things. First, he’s never been better. Maybe as good, but not better. Second, the ace told MLB.com earlier this season that, if things continue Authentic Pablo Sandoval Jersey to go well, he could see playing another 10 years.
Finally, that third thought: For the past 20 years, we’ve been reading about the demise of the 300-game winner. I’ve usually shrugged that off, knowing that it’ll be http://www.authenticmlbgiantsstore.com/Authentic-Pablo-Sandoval-Jersey tougher to get there but not really to declare extinction. That is until the past couple of years when, given current trends with starting-pitcher http://www.bearsofficialnflproshop.com/Authentic-Cody-Whitehair-Jersey use, even I began to wonder if we might have really seen the last 300-game winner.
But have we? Verlander needs another 103 wins. He’s on pace for 19 this season, so let’s be Cody Whitehair Jersey optimistic and put him at 207 by the end of the campaign. That leaves him 93 short. Clearly, if Verlander were to really go another 10 years, it seems likely he’d get there. But if another decade is overly optimistic, what would a run look like for him?
