Sam I Am
Sammy Watkins was the #1 overall pick in the 2014 YFFL Draft
In a draft that appeared to be chock full of talent, wide receiver Sammy Watkins rose to the top, becoming the first overall selection by the
Market Thugs and the first receiver to go #1 overall since Dez Bryant in 2010.
Wide receiver was the theme of an unpredictable first round, as 8 wideouts were drafted in the first thirteen picks. A trio of quarterbacks
(Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater, and Blake Bortles) closed out the final 5 picks of the first round as teams contineud to pursue the next
franchise QB in a league that has become very pass happy.
From Eddie Lacy to RGIII, rookies have proven they can have a big impact in their first seasons, including vaulting teams into playoff
contention. Who will be the "next big thing" in 2014? The season kicks off on September 4th!
