Aidan Hutchinson surprised with heartfelt message from parents after being selected by Lions [Video]

On Thursday, Aidan Hutchinson‘s dream came true as he heard his name called in the NFL Draft.

After being selected by the Detroit Lions with the No. 2 overall pick, Hutchinson was surprised with a heartfelt message from his parents.

“We couldn’t be prouder of you tonight,” they said.

This is pretty awesome.

NFL Draft: 10 Rookies Who Can Make an Immediate Fantasy Football Splash

I’m not sure about you, but all the talk I hear about this draft is that there’s no “star power.”

Sure, last year’s NFL Draft had five first-round quarterbacks, but the five combined for exactly zero playoff wins and zero division titles. We love big-name rookie quarterbacks on draft night, but they’re rarely the first-year players who impact winning.

If you’re a fantasy football fan, you should hold this opinion — this draft is absolutely stellar. Several impact college position players will transition to the NFL, and some are coming off absurd, do-it-all efforts on college teams that weren’t very good overall.

There’s not a standout stud like Ja’Marr Chase, but I have 10 guys — five wide receivers, two tight ends, and three running backs — who I’ve had my eye on due to their insane production in college football daily fantasy last season. A few of them are getting slept on while others are well-known commodities.

Let’s break them down.

 

Drake London, USC

If I didn’t know any better, I’d have guessed Drake London was a 5’9″ slot receiver.

From a college DFS perspective, his results closer mirrored Cooper Kupp‘s more so than the 6’4″ possession receiver he profiles to be in the NFL.

London saw a whopping 15.1 targets per game on a depleted Southern Cal offense. That was third in all of FBS. He was their do-it-all swiss army knife — just as Kupp is for the Rams.

Amazingly, despite being limited to just eight games, London scored seven times. That’s closer to the Mike Evans comparison you’ll see tossed around given their frames. He also broke the 1,000-yard mark (1,083) with pedestrian quarterback play.

Given his evaluation from scouts of elite hands and ball skills, London’s future would be incredibly bright on a high-powered offense as a big red-zone threat.

Personally, I’d like to see the Jets give Zach Wilson a bigger body to work next to Elijah Moore, so London could be a perfect fit to Gang Green with one of their first-round selections.
