Mack Prioleau: NFL Draft
With the NFL draft just around the corner there is definitely a lot of anxiety and excitement in the air. All the way from the owners, down to the fans. The draft can make a team and set them up for years of success. Just look at the Colts who drafted Andrew Luck and have set themselves up for years of winning seasons. Even this year with him injured and having the worst season of his young career they almost made the playoffs. The draft is also a place that can destroy a team’s momentum for years.
