The 2016 NFL Scouting Combine is already in the books and teams are now moving on to the next order of business Chuma Edoga Jersey , prospect analysis. Burrowed in the depths of 32 cluttered office spaces are coaches giddily examining their recorded data and notes. Time is winding down, and the big day is seemingly approaching fast.While the confident analysts already have their mock drafts set in stone, the reality is that we don't really know what's going to go down on that fateful Thursday. Like how every draft day has been, you know it's surely unpredictable (for the most part at least). There are so many angles and factors that you have to consider to get the slightest idea of what need a team is actually looking to address. And, until they pull the trigger do we truly get a sense of what direction they're heading in. Ah, the love-hate, anxiety-ridden relationship of the NFL draft.Many teams are in tough positions in terms of talent and are looking to the draft to supply them some much-needed help. This year's class has no shortage of impact players either (i.e. Ezekiel Elliott, Jalen Ramsey, Deforest Buckner, etc.)Finally, you have the projected late-rounders that are coming in with a chip on their shoulders. While they aren't receiving much love from the analysts http://www.newyorkjetsteamonline.com/trevon-wesco-jersey , we all know that once they lace up their cleats for their first game, it's a whole different ballpark (erm... stadium). By the way, don't sleep on Shilique Calhoun, the 3-4/4-3 hybrid end could be a major role player for the right team.So, while we patiently wait for that glorious day, I invite you all to take a peek at my realistic but unrealistic bold list of predictions of what I believe could happen - with enough delusion - on the carnival that is known as the NFL Draft. In the Alpine ski race that Switzerland loves most of all, Beat Feuz gave the home team yet another victory in the Lauberhorn downhill on Saturday.
Racing first, Feuz was watched by the Swiss president and 35,000 fans, setting a time on the longest World Cup course of 4.27 kilometers (2.65 miles) that only Aksel Lund Svindal could threaten.
Svindal wore the No. 3 bib and led at four of the five time splits, but the big Norwegian finished 0.18 seconds behind Feuz’s 2 minutes Alexander Mattison Jersey , 26.50 seconds.
”I’m very happy with the second place,” said Svindal, who watched Feuz’s run on television at the start house overlooked by the Eiger and Jungfrau mountains. ”I kind of figured it would be a tough one to beat.”
Feuz punched the air with both fists in the leader’s box on seeing Svindal’s time – sensing a 62-man race that would take another two hours to complete was effectively over after eight minutes.
”A fantastic day, unbelievable. When Aksel came down, I knew mine was a good race,” said Feuz, who also won the world championships gold medal on home snow, at St. Moritz last February.
Matthias Mayer of Austria was third, 0.67 behind Feuz. It gave the storied race a podium of the world champion, flanked by the most consistent downhill racer of the past decade, and the 2014 Olympic champion.
Even fourth place was taken by Hannes Reichelt of Austria http://www.minnesotavikingsteamonline.com/dru-samia-jersey , who had his streak of five straight podium finishes at Wengen broken. When Reichelt won in 2015, he beat Feuz into second.
Feuz also won at Wengen in 2012, and the Swiss team has now won five of the past nine editions.
With his second downhill win this season, Feuz closed the gap on Svindal who leads the season-long standings. The 30-year-old Swiss previously won at Lake Louise, Canada, in November when Mayer and Svindal were also on the podium.
Svindal extended an impressive streak of top-three finishes in each of five World Cup downhills this season in his latest comeback from serious injuries and surgery.
”I can’t train as much,” said the 35-year-old Svindal who took silver in the 2010 Olympic downhill. ”So I’m very happy that I’m able to pull it out for the races and make it happen.”
On a clear and cold day, the race was run under blue skies with sun lighting much of the course.
Feuz and Svindal were rewarded for choosing low numbers for the 12:30 p.m. local time (1130 GMT) start. World Cup rules let the top 10-ranked downhill racers pick an odd-numbered bib from Nos. 1 through 19.
Mayer started No. 11, and said the snow had become ”sticky” and slower in the sun-bathed upper section.
The fastest speed was recorded by Reichelt, wearing No. 19, who clocked 147.5 kph (almost 92 mph) on a straight section two minutes into his run. Still Daniel Jones Jersey , the Austrian veteran’s chance was gone after dropping a full second behind Feuz in the top half.
Svindal lost time at halfway going through the S-shaped turns where he grazed his head against safety nets and exited at just 70.7 kph (44 mph).
”It’s one of those old-school turns that’s almost impossible to do with the speed you carry,” he said, revealing his helmet was marked blue from ”burned rubber.”
A festive day included a pre-race fly-past by military jet fighters escorting a Swiss airlines jumbo.
The host nation’s president, Alain Berset, watched in a public duty days before world leaders gather in Switzerland at Davos, where he is scheduled to meet U.S. President Donald Trump.
”It’s really magnificent,” Berset told The Associated Press of Feuz’s win. ”It’s the biggest downhill race in the world for us obviously.”
