It was a good rookie season for Detroit Lions wideout Amon-Ra St. Brown, who passed Herschel Walker (76) for the most receptions a first-year player not selected within the first 3 rounds of a draft, while also setting team records for rookie receptions (90) and receiving yards (912).
And now, he’s been featured in an episode of the spinoff of the “No Days Off” video series from Whistle entitled “Days Off”, in which he talks about his rookie campaign and the motivation that he felt upon his being selected by the Lions.
“I would definitely say that I have that chip on my shoulder still from draft day, a day I will never forget,” he said. “I knew I wasn’t going to go in the first round, but I thought for sure in the second or third round. They were all waiting there, all my friends and family, to congratulate me on getting drafted, I never got picked. That was my goal growing up was to hear my name called on draft day. I definitely think it’s going to help me in the long run.”

[i]The NFL Draft draws near, and the next generation of NFL talent is about to find their first NFL team.
To add to the excitement, we have no real shortage of NFL Draft betting opportunities at FanDuel Sportsbook.
The one I’m keying on here is the landing spot for Pittsburgh Panthers quarterback Kenny Pickett. Here are the odds for each team to draft Pickett as well as the team distribution we see over the 100 most recent mock drafts for Pickett, according to NFL Mock Draft Database.
The betting favorite — and the analysts’ favorite — to draft Pickett is the Carolina Panthers, a quarterback-needy team that has been a highly touted fit for Pickett for months now. Nearly half of the recent mocks (45.0%) pair up Pickett and the Panthers. That bests the implied probability of 36.4% based on the +175 odds. It’s a good pick.[/i]
