RBs Rule at 2018 Draft

Jon Kinsman, YFFL Commissioner

September 05, 2018

Running backs dominated another YFFL Draft as consensus #1 overall pick Saquon Barkley was one of eight RBs taken in the first round. This marks the third straight season that a RB has been chosen #1 overall.

The biggest surprise of the night came at pick #5, where the Burger Buddies selected QB Baker Mayfield, who will join DeShaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes in a vaunted collection of young signal callers. Owner Mike Kinsman has cited his previous success with the Chickens as the reason for the choice - he once rostered Donovan McNabb, Drew Brees and Philip Rivers for several seasons before trading them off for picks and players.

With the conclusion of the draft, we look forward to a 26th year of YFFL action. The season kicks off on Thursday night as the White Guys and Todd Gurley look to defend their title and MVP campaigns, several teams including the Llamas and Barkley look to bounce back from disappointing 2017 seasons, and a host of newly minted YFFL rookies try to make their mark on the league.
