Twenty years after Peyton Manning and Ryan Leaf became the first and second overall picks in the draft, one player is largely silent 鈥?and the other keeps on talking. But the one who many would say should be talking isn’t, and the one who many would say shouldn’t be talking is.
Authentic Mens Alterraun Verner Jersey My first reaction to these comments were this: Why do we care what Ryan Leaf has to say about anything? Collectively, the media keeps giving a platform and a voice to a guy who did absolutely nothing in the NFL, simply because he turned his life around and because he’s willing to speak on radio and TV. But then I realized that one major positive factor comes from seeing and hearing Leaf in the weeks preceding the draft: It serves as a reminder that, despite all of glowing assessments of draft-eligible players aimed consciously or not at stoking the fire of plausible hope for fans of every team, there will be busts. Plenty of busts. Colossal busts. But the draft experts rarely mention that there will be busts, because they can’t answer the next logical question, Who will they be?
Leaf, unlike most of the people who are talking about the incoming draft class, is willing to try to answer that question. Though his method may be far less than scientific, his views merit consideration. Last year, for example, Leaf flagged Deshaun Watson as the most impressive of the incoming quarterbacks, and Leaf was right.
Despite Leaf’s lack of significant playing experience (he started 21 career games), he knows a thing or two about quarterbacks booming or busting because he busted unlike any other. And his most recent comments about Mayfield weren’t the first time Leaf spoke about the 2017 Heisman winner.
Arians retired from the Cardinals after five seasons as the team’s head coach. He was named coach of the year twice, both as head coach of the Cardinals and in 2012, when he served as interim head coach of the Colts, while former coach Chuck Pagano battled leukemia.
If Arians applies the same candor to broadcasting that he used when coaching, things could get very interesting in the booth 鈥?and during production meetings with coaches and players that Arians possibly will be criticizing in unvarnished fashion.

We didn’t want to put players at risk, we didn’t want to put fans or employees at risk, Miller said. We just thought more information and more time would help us.
