Projected Team
Carolina
PROSPECT RNK

Round 1 - Pick 15

Florida • Soph • 6'4" / 232 lbs

We aren't sure if Richardson will enter the 2023 draft, but if he does, the Giants should feel comfortable picking here in the middle of Round 1. He can get a redshirt season before starting in 2024.

Notre Dame • Jr • 6'4" / 265 lbs

Philadelphia

Smith-Njigba's injury has slowed all his momentum from an awesome 2021. He's dangerous after the catch and runs quality route but isn't very big and doesn't appear to be an athlete in the caliber of some of the other star wideouts to enter the league recently from Ohio State.

Round 1 - Pick 28

Killexams : 2022-23 Fantasy Basketball Mock Draft 2.0: The remix — who's up and who's down?

Click here for the original version of this mock draft

Editor’s note: Not all players will have accompanying analysis after their pick.

Without further ado, the first pick in the 2022-2023 fantasy basketball draft goes to …

1.01 Nikola Jokic – C, Denver Nuggets

No surprise here. Jokic is a fantasy basketball cheat code after posting a historic 27.1 points, 13.8 rebounds, 7.9 assists, 1.3 threes and 2.4 stocks  (steals plus blocks) per game with 58/34/81 shooting splits last season. He had the highest single-season Box Plus/Minus (BPM) in NBA history and is the unanimous first-overall pick here.

1.02 Joel Embiid – PF/C, Philadelphia 76ers

Coming off his best statistical season and playing a career-high 68 games, Embiid will be the focal point of a fantasy-friendly Sixers offense. As one of the most dominant big men in the league, he finished fourth in the NBA in double-doubles with 2.7 stocks on the defensive end. He should have no issues replicating a top-three performance on a per-game and totals basis if he can play at least 60 games this year.

1.03 Kevin Durant – SF/PF, Brooklyn Nets

Durant finished second on a per-game basis in 2021-22, and he’ll continue to see a 30 percent usage rate this season. I expect the Nets to finish top-10 in Pace and Offensive Rating, and KD will lead the way. He checks every box for fantasy basketball.

1.04 Giannis Antetokounmpo – PF/C, Milwaukee Bucks

Giannis is the only player in NBA history to average at least 25 points, 10.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.0 block in multiple seasons, and he’s done it four years in a row. He finished 10th on a per-game basis last season, but an uptick in three-pointers made while shooting over 72% from the free-throw line will help justify drafting him here.

1.05 Luka Doncic – PG/SG, Dallas Mavericks

Luka Magic is in effect. Yeah, he’s known to turn the ball over at a high rate and miss a ton of free throws, but I’m buying his numbers after the Kristaps Porzingis trade. 31.3 points, 9.5 rebounds, 8.1 assists with 3.9 threes and 1.0 steal. He’s ripe for an MVP-like season.

1.06 Jayson Tatum – SF/PF, Boston Celtics (Original Pick: No.7)

I moved Tatum up in my latest mock draft because I think he’ll be more valuable outside of scoring and threes than Stephen Curry. He’ll command a higher usage rate, shoots a higher percentage from the field, and can check every box, similar to Kevin Durant.

[Get in on the fun this fantasy hoops season: Create or join a league now!]

Original take: Still only 24 years old, Tatum put up career-highs in points, rebounds and assists last year with a 32% usage rate. DAWG.

1.07 Stephen Curry – PG, Golden State Warriors (Original Pick: No.6)

The 2022 Finals MVP and four-time champion annually anchors the points, threes and free throw percentage categories in fantasy basketball. I project Curry’s minutes and usage will remain in the 30s as the centerpiece of one of the best teams in basketball.

1.08 Tyrese Haliburton – PG/SG, Indiana Pacers (Original Pick. No.9)

Haliburton moves up because Harden looks passive on offense. While he’s still a first-round pick, I’m moving Harden lower (as you’ll see below) as he’s becoming more of a facilitator at this stage in his career.

Original take: If you don’t know, now you know. I’ve seen Haliburton selected in the top five in industry expert drafts, but I’m comfortable grabbing him in the top 10. I’m teetering between Haliburton and LaMelo Ball in this spot, but the former is a good bet to average the most assists per game this year and score over 20 points per night with solid peripherals. In 18 games without Malcolm Brogdon last season, Haliburton tallied 18.6 points, 10.1 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 2.3 threes and 1.8 steals with 50/46/89 shooting splits. Breakout!

1.09 Damian Lillard – PG, Portland Trail Blazers

Lillard was 13th on my draft board, but he gets a substantial boost after Harden falls, LaMelo Balls ankle injury and Karl-Anthony Towns’ recovery from an illness. Lillard is healthy and has a better team, so fantasy managers should feel comfortable selecting Lillard as a top-10 pick.

1.10 Karl-Anthony Towns – PF/C, Minnesota Timberwolves (Original Pick. No. 11)

Towns gets a slight boost here from pick 11 as he’s back on the court and played well in his only preseason appearance. Now, Rudy Gobert was in street clothes, but Towns looks back to form despite the reported weight loss due to his illness — nineteen points with six rebounds and six assists in his preseason debut.

Original take: The Timberwolves’ frontcourt suddenly got crowded after they traded for Utah Jazz All-Star center and three-time Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert this offseason. Gobert’s presence should slide KAT to a true-stretch four, which has risks and benefits. He finished eighth on a per-game basis last year, but I’d expect his rebound numbers to drop slightly with a boost in made threes. KAT is accustomed to playing with an offensively limited frontcourt (Taj Gibson, Jarred Vanderbilt), so I’m not overly concerned about Gobert being in town. He should still be able to collect at least two stocks and be the best-shooting big man in the league. Forty-one percent from beyond the arc last year and 40% for this career, just sayin’.

1.11 James Harden – PG/SG, Philadelphia 76ers (Original Pick, No. 8)

My previous take had Harden “squarely in the top-10” conversation, but from what I’ve seen in the preseason, Harden is closer to last year’s version than the Harden of old. Still, he’s a first-round player for his cross-categorical contributions.

Original take: Harden’s decision to make less and return to Philly on a two-year deal shows he’s ready to ball. The hamstring injury that’s plagued him for two seasons is behind him, and he’s reportedly in great shape heading into this season. He was the only player in the NBA to post over 20+ points and 10+ assists per game in ’21-’22 and finished 15th on a per-game basis despite changing teams midseason and playing on a bum leg. A bounce-back should put him squarely in the top 10 in fantasy basketball.

1.12 LaMelo Ball – PG/SG, Charlotte Hornets (Original Pick: No. 9)

A sprained ankle will cost the dynamic point guard the first couple of weeks of the regular season. He’s moving down a few spots merely because of the injury. He should still be in line for another standout, All-Star-level season.

Original take: LaMelo Ball enters his third NBA season looking to build off career-highs in points, rebounds, assists, threes made, and FT%. He’s also among the league leaders in steals. The loss of Miles Bridges might decrease his passing numbers after accounting for 23% of Ball’s assists in ’21-’22, but there’s still plenty of opportunity to see a 30% usage while filling up the box score alongside Terry Rozier.

2.01 Devin Booker – SG/SF, Phoenix Suns

The Suns seem like they’re going through it, but I don’t think it’ll have much bearing on Devin Booker’s production this season. He’s in his prime and an improved playmaker who’s also a walking bucket.

2.02 Kyrie Irving – PG/SG, Brooklyn Nets

He’ll play more than 29 games this year, and the Nets new “big 3” looked great in Wednesday’s matchup versus the Bucks. Uncle Drew will get his, scoring-wise, but there’s still upside in him as a distributor and rebounder at the position. His high efficiency and sneaky steals make him an early second-round pick in my book.

2.03 1.15 Trae Young – PG, Atlanta Hawks (Original Pick. No. 12)

My suspicions are trending in the right direction, as Trae Young’s assists were not what we’ve come to expect in exact years. Granted, it’s the preseason, but I think Dejounte Murray will continue to eat into his assists despite being one of the best scorers in the league.

[Try Yahoo Fantasy Plus for free to get premium basketball tools]

Original take: Trae Young has a new backcourt mate in All-Star guard Dejounte Murray, but he should still be one of the best fantasy guards this upcoming season. He’s a volume scorer who ranked fourth in usage rate last year at 34.4. I expect Hawks head coach Nate McMillan to stagger Young and Murray’s minutes at the point but also provide Young the chance to work more off-ball to create better looks on the perimeter. He should still boast substantial fantasy numbers without much offense around him and Murray.

2.04 Kawhi Leonard – SG/SF/PF, Los Angeles Clippers

While this may seem high for a player coming off of injury, Kawhi is one of the best two-way players in fantasy while sporting elite shooting percentages. Paul George admitted that Kawhi is the alpha for the Clippers, and despite being load managed at times, he’s one of the best on a per-game basis in fantasy basketball.

2.05 Dejounte Murray – PG/SG, Atlanta Hawks

He might be better than Trae Young in fantasy this season. I’m here for another monster season, live from the A.

2.06 Anthony Davis – PF/C, Los Angeles Lakers

Will he play center or not? Not sure that it matters much for fantasy considering he just needs to STAY HEALTHY. Davis was a top-12 player on a per-game basis last season before getting injured so going back to the well. He’s too talented to go beyond the first 18 picks.

2.07 Paul George – SF/PF, Los Angeles Clippers

The run on perennial All-Stars continues. George is the second option of arguably the best roster in the Western Conference. He might take games off here and there, but PG, similar to Kawhi Leonard, is an exceptional two-way player. If he can cut down on his turnovers and Boost his shooting from the field, he could return to first-round value this year.

2.08 LeBron James – SF/PF, Los Angeles Lakers

The King is back and ready to make yet another run for a title. It helps that his teammates are healthy, and while his scoring will likely take a dip, he’s one of a handful of players capable of a triple-double every night.

2.09 Anthony Edwards – SG/SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

You’ll likely have to pay up for Ant-man, but he is undoubtedly in breakout territory. He’s well-positioned to make the jump into an All-Star this year. He’s a great source of points, steals, threes and his athleticism makes him a solid rebounder and blocker at his position.

2.10 Domantas Sabonis – PF/C, Sacramento Kings

Drafting a player from the Sacramento Kings this early may feel odd, but Sabonis is one of fantasy basketball’s most versatile big men. He won’t do a ton defensively, but he’ll be a reliable source of points, rebounds, assists and FG% as a second-round pick.

2.11 Fred VanVleet – PG/SG, Toronto Raptors

Minimal competition in the backcourt, plus he’ll likely be top five in minutes played. He’s a perfect selection when punting field-goal percentage (pair with Luka Doncic, perhaps?) but also will be among the league leaders in threes, steals and FT percentage.

2.12 Bam Adebayo – PF/C, Miami Heat

His assists are down since Kyle Lowry arrived, but he’s attempting more threes in the preseason than he has in his career. He is a nice grab here for his defensive stats and double-double potential.

3.01 Donovan Mitchell – PG/SG, Cleveland Cavaliers

Mitchell finished in the top 30 in per-game value last season and top 50 the year prior. The Cavs are deep, but he’ll be the primary scorer on one of the most fantasy-friendly teams in the league. I’m expecting his points to dip, but he’ll still be one of the better guards of fantasy.

3.02 Cade Cunningham – PG/SG, Detroit Pistons

One of my breakouts, so grabbing him as an early third-round pick is the way to go.

3.03 Pascal Siakam – PF/C, Toronto Raptors

Siakam is a stat stuffer who will finish in the top five in minutes played. He’s an ideal fit for any fantasy managers interested in punting blocks, rebounds, and FG%.

3.04 Rudy Gobert – C, Minnesota Timberwolves

3.05 DeMar DeRozan – SF/PF, Chicago Bulls

3.06 Ja Morant – PG, Memphis Grizzlies

3.07 Darius Garland – PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

He’s got the sauce, plus he’s an exceptional passer and facilitator who can score at will. He and Donovan Mitchell can thrive together and should make for one heck of a dynamic duo in fantasy. I’m still expecting him to be one of the top distributors but provide points, threes, steals and an elite FT percentage in category leagues.

3.08 Chris Paul – PG, Phoenix Suns

3.09 Jimmy Butler – SF/PF, Miami Heat

3.10 Bradley Beal – SG, Washington Wizards

3.11 Nikola Vucevic – C, Chicago Bulls

3.12 Zion Williamson – PF, New Orleans Pelicans

Zion tweaked his ankle in his last preseason game, but Pelicans HC Willie Green and Zion both said that “he’s doing fine.” I’m confident he is still worthy of being selected in the first three rounds.

Killexams : Fantasy basketball mock draft: 10-team H2H categories

The ESPN fantasy basketball experts got together for their third mock draft of the 2022-23 NBA season, using a 10-team H2H categories format.

If you're new to fantasy hoops and looking to try it out for the first time, here is a tutorial of all the basics. From there, it's easy to grab a handful of people, set up a draft and have some fun!

Let this mock draft serve as a learning experience and prime example of where players are being selected. This can help you on your way when it's time to draft for real.

How high was Tyrese Haliburton drafted? Which stars slipped all the way to Round 5? And how far did Russell Westbrook slide? These are some of the things to key in on.

The participants of our 10-team H2H categories mock, in order of draft position, were as follows: André Snellings, Joe Kaiser, Matt Williams, Tom Carpenter, Jim McCormick, Eric Karabell, Kyle Soppe, Eric Moody, James Best and Ryan Smith.

Killexams : 10 Video Games That Mock Bad Players

We are in a very interesting time when it comes to the debate of difficulty in video games. The likes of Dark Souls, Hotline Miami and Cuphead have been flying the flag for super hard titles that are gloriously satisfying to overcome after the hours of blind rage that they can make you feel.

At the same time, there is the important discussion about accessibility and, on top of that, does a game have to be hard? Couldn't FromSoftware just put a few more difficulty modes into Bloodborne so that more players stood a chance to appreciate it? Or does that water down the appeal?

It's a debate for another time certainly but some video games know where they stand when it comes to the skill expected out of a player.

It's not enough for some video games to expect a certain level of expertise. Sometimes, a title has to rub salt into the wound by telling you just how big of a failure you are. You thought making the same mistake over and over again was bad, how about if the game pointed that out to you?

In this list, we'll be exploring video games that have injured you and then insulted you for not being up to their high standards.

Whilst the second game in the series gets the most praise, Streets of Rage 3 released in the waning years of Sega’s 16bit console and provided a solid follow-up experience.

There’s two things that really stick the knife in with Streets of Rage 3’s “easy” mode. Like several titles of the era, Streets of Rage 3 ends early and removes its final few stages for its more inexperienced players.

At the end of stage 5 (of 7), the game comes to an unexpected end where most of the story strands aren’t resolved and the game badmouths you to boot. The defeated robotic boss of the previous stage slyly remarks “you play this game like a beginner” before ceasing function.

Firstly, this is clearly adding insult to injury for proud gamers who resigned themselves to playing on easy because they were struggling with the difficulty the game boots up with. However, in Japan (where it’s known as Bare Knuckle 3), this difficulty is Streets of Rage 3’s normal mode. So, you might well think bad of yourself for picking the easier route through the Mega Drive beat-em-up but you’re actually playing what is the standard difficulty overseas and you still get mocked for it.

Come on, be a big strong Western video gamer and play on a harder setting next time… apparently?

Killexams : 2023 NFL Mock Draft: Steelers invest in protecting Kenny Pickett, Eagles add another weapon to dynamic offense

Round 1 - Pick 1

Ohio State • Jr • 6'3" / 218 lbs

Projected Team
Houston
PROSPECT RNK
3rd
POSITION RNK
1st

Houston can ill-afford to pass on the opportunity to select a potential franchise quarterback. If the Texans hit on Stroud, it could drastically set forth their rebuild.

Round 1 - Pick 2

Alabama • Jr • 6'0" / 194 lbs

Projected Team
Washington
PROSPECT RNK
4th
POSITION RNK
2nd

Strong leadership has been lacking at times in Washington, but Young never falls short in that aspect. He does not have prototypical size for the position, but he does have an elite feel for the game. The NFL has changed and there is a place for a player like Young to succeed, even if there is an unfair burden of proof.

Round 1 - Pick 3

Kentucky • Sr • 6'3" / 232 lbs

Projected Team
Seattle
PROSPECT RNK
5th
POSITION RNK
3rd

Honestly, I understand why some have concerns about Levis' transition to the NFL. There are aspects of his game that need to improve, and he is already one of the older prospects at quarterback. In fairness to him, he is in the middle of his second season starting, and growth comes with experience. His exposure to pro-style offenses over the past two years is a feather in his cap, though.

Round 1 - Pick 4

Alabama • Jr • 6'4" / 243 lbs

Projected Team
Chicago
PROSPECT RNK
1st
POSITION RNK
1st

Chicago would probably consider a quarterback if the right one were available. As it stands, the Bears have to take the best player available, and that would appear to be the pass rusher from Alabama. He has a good frame with a quick twitch nature and strength. It is important to identify building blocks on the roster and just build from there.

Round 1 - Pick 5

Georgia • Jr • 6'3" / 300 lbs

Projected Team
Carolina
PROSPECT RNK
6th
POSITION RNK
1st

Matt Rhule's tenure began with the selection of a defensive tackle (Derrick Brown) in the first round so perhaps this a bad omen for the future Panthers head coach. However, it is a similar concept to Chicago: take the best player available and figure the rest out later. Quality defensive tackles are difficult to come by, so perhaps a team would be willing to trade up for the talented interior defender.

Round 1 - Pick 6

Ohio State • Jr • 6'6" / 310 lbs

Projected Team
Pittsburgh
PROSPECT RNK
23rd
POSITION RNK
3rd

The Ohio State program has been good to Pittsburgh with Cam Heyward and Ryan Shazier prior to his on-field accident. Johnson has experience playing guard and now tackle. The Steelers need to do everything in their power to protect Najee Harris and Kenny Pickett.

Round 1 - Pick 7

Texas A&M • Jr • 6'3" / 195 lbs

Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
9th
POSITION RNK
1st

Detroit could continue adding in the trenches, but it is relatively solid on both sides of the ball. Johnson is one of the best players available when that qualifier is taken out of the equation. He is a physical, versatile player who should fit in to Dan Campbell's locker room well.

Round 1 - Pick 8

Clemson • Jr • 6'5" / 275 lbs

Projected Team
Atlanta
PROSPECT RNK
2nd
POSITION RNK
2nd

Atlanta needs to find those foundational pieces. Tight end Kyle Pitts and wide receiver Drake London would seem to be two of those on the offensive side of the ball. Murphy is a special talent. His combination of size and speed would be rare had it not been for the lasting impressions made by Travon Walker and Jordan Davis just last year.

Round 1 - Pick 9

Penn State • Soph • 6'6" / 321 lbs

Projected Team
N.Y. Jets
PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK

Fashanu is one of the biggest risers considering I knew nothing about him roughly a month ago. He is balanced in pass protection and shows the athleticism and core strength necessary to handle some of the league's most challenging pass rushers. New York has some older offensive tackles on the roster right now, in addition to a situation with Mekhi Becton that is unsettled at best. Fashanu hopefully brings a bit of stability to that unit.

Round 1 - Pick 10

Clemson • Soph • 6'5" / 305 lbs

Projected Team
New England
PROSPECT RNK
15th
POSITION RNK
2nd

Bill Belichick has always valued strength and versatility on defense. Bresee brings that to the table without sacrificing any of the athleticism. Earlier, I mentioned the rising need for impactful interior defenders, and the Clemson product would upgrade that side of the ball from Day 1.

Round 1 - Pick 11

Clemson • Jr • 6'3" / 240 lbs

Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
7th

1st

Las Vegas has as much talent as anyone on the edge with Maxx Crosby and Chandler Jones, but it needs more consistency up the middle. Simpson is a versatile talent who can shoot gaps and drop into coverage while making plays sideline to sideline.

Round 1 - Pick 12

Georgia • Soph • 6'2" / 210 lbs

Projected Team
Arizona
PROSPECT RNK
8th
POSITION RNK
1st

Arizona has hardly invested in the cornerback position. The Cardinals have lacked a potential lockdown cornerback like Ringo. If they brought him in and he hits, then it would offer a different look to that defense than what has been seen in exact years.

Round 1 - Pick 13

TCU • Jr • 6'4" / 215 lbs

Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
46th
POSITION RNK
6th

Jacksonville could benefit from having size in the wide receiver room. The Zay Jones and Christian Kirk contracts were not insignificant investments, so having flexibility to move on from one or both over the coming years is important. Truthfully, the consistency that many have wanted to see from Johnston has simply not been there, but his potential was put on full display last weekend against Kansas, as he registered 14 receptions for 206 yards and one touchdown. Despite playing in all five games, more than half of his production came in that one game.

Ohio State • Jr • 6'1" / 200 lbs

Projected Team
Houston
PROSPECT RNK
11th
POSITION RNK
2nd

After selecting Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud at the top of the draft, Houston takes his teammate with the pick acquired in the Deshaun Watson trade. Smith-Njigba should provide Stroud with some familiarity in his new home.

Round 1 - Pick 15

Oregon • Soph • 6'2" / 201 lbs

The Giants need to upgrade the cornerback position after moving on from James Bradberry this offseason. It is actually quite remarkable what Brian Daboll has been able to do with that roster, specifically when looking at the wide receiver and cornerback positions.

Northwestern • Jr • 6'4" / 315 lbs

Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
13th
POSITION RNK
1st

Offensive line does not seem like an immediate need for this franchise, but Skoronski is the best player on the board and general manager Howie Roseman does not take depth for granted. The Northwestern product has five-positional flexibility, and that brings immense value for a budding contender like Philadelphia. The Eagles draft critical positions before it becomes a problem.

Round 1 - Pick 17

Notre Dame • Jr • 6'4" / 265 lbs

Projected Team
Tennessee
PROSPECT RNK
12th
POSITION RNK
1st

Could Tennessee be a dark horse landing spot for a quarterback like Anthony Richardson? There is a growing belief that the team rides with Malik Willis but the presence of a third-round selection is often not a deterrent when considering the selection of a potential franchise quarterback.

Round 1 - Pick 18

LSU • Jr • 6'0" / 205 lbs

Projected Team
Indianapolis
PROSPECT RNK
10th
POSITION RNK
1st

Indianapolis has size at the wide receiver position, but the speed options have not worked out. The 2022 campaign has not exactly been a banner year for Boutte, but that could have something to do with the emotional roller coaster and instability that he has been through early in his career.

Alabama • Jr • 6'0" / 193 lbs

Projected Team
Seattle
PROSPECT RNK
37th
POSITION RNK
7th

The term five-tool player is often used for a baseball player capable of doing everything. Branch is a five-tool football player. He showcases great awareness in addition to an ability to play down in run support or back in coverage.

Round 1 - Pick 21

North Carolina • Jr • 5'10" / 175 lbs

Projected Team
Cincinnati
PROSPECT RNK
29th
POSITION RNK
3rd

Cincinnati is a notoriously cheap franchise so, while it may be able to create cash on hand for Joe Burrow, it is not unreasonable to think it explores cost-cutting measures in other places. The team would save roughly $9 million if Tyler Boyd is not on the roster next season. His play does not validate such a move, but that is the reality of the NFL.

Florida • Soph • 6'4" / 232 lbs

Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK

The expectations cast upon Richardson to open the year were unfair. Despite his immense talent, he is still a young player learning to play the position at this level. A wide array of outcomes have been played out on the field this year, but there is reason to believe he will continue to show growth. If he did not have top-10 assurance, would he go back to school in hopes of becoming the No. 1 overall selection the following year?

Round 1 - Pick 23

Oregon • Soph • 6'2" / 253 lbs

Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
17th
POSITION RNK
2nd

Minnesota just needs to get younger at the linebacker position. Jordan Hicks turns 32 years old on Friday (Happy birthday, Jordan!) and Eric Kendricks will be 31 in February. General manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah may not value the position at this spot, but it is a need on the roster.

Round 1 - Pick 24

Georgia • Soph • 6'4" / 310 lbs

Jones is a massive human being who should provide some stability on the right side of that Los Angeles offensive line. The Chargers have made sound decisions investing in critical positions like edge rusher, offensive line and cornerback. There is no reason to think that changes.

Round 1 - Pick 25

Ohio State • Sr • 6'4" / 255 lbs

Projected Team
Dallas
PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK

Dallas could allow the salary cap to reset a bit over the next few years by moving on from tight end Dalton Schultz and running back Ezekiel Elliott. Applying a second franchise tag or re-signing Schultz may be cost-prohibitive because of expectations based on what they paid him this season. Stover has been a welcomed surprise with his play for the Buckeyes.

Texas • Jr • 6'0" / 220 lbs

Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
16th
POSITION RNK
1st

Robinson is a balanced running back who can upgrade the roster with his running style, pass-catching capabilities and pass protection. The roster is flush with offensive skill talent, and a talent like Robinson will only add more strain on the opposing defense.

Round 1 - Pick 27

USC • Jr • 6'0" / 175 lbs

Projected Team
Green Bay
PROSPECT RNK
38th
POSITION RNK
4th

I spent all offseason warning Green Bay about the dangers of assuming Aaron Rodgers was going to be able to cover up all of the inexperience and potentially lack of talent at the wide receiver. To an extent, fans are seeing that play out on the field. Davante Adams and Rodgers spent years working on chemistry and perfecting that back shoulder throw. It could not be replicated by rookies in short order.

Round 1 - Pick 28

Maryland • Sr • 6'6" / 320 lbs

Projected Team
Baltimore
PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK

Without over-analyzing the future of Ronnie Stanley, it is reasonable to think Baltimore could be looking for a sustainable right tackle option. The Ravens need not look further than up the street to the local Terrapins and the athletic left tackle.

Round 1 - Pick 29

Kansas State • Jr • 6'4" / 255 lbs

Projected Team
Tampa Bay
PROSPECT RNK
21st
POSITION RNK
3rd

The idea is that Anudike-Uzomah gives the franchise depth in the present and an eventual compliment to Joe Tryon-Shoyinka. Tampa Bay went all in on the current vision of the roster, but it is time to start thinking about long-term replacements.

Round 1 - Pick 30

BYU • Jr • 6'8" / 305 lbs

Projected Team
Kansas City
PROSPECT RNK
36th
POSITION RNK
4th

Kansas City needs a right tackle, and it is not irresponsible to question whether or not it may need a new left tackle next season as well. Orlando Brown Jr. and the team were clearly not close on a long-term contract extension. Unless his play drastically improves, it is hard to fathom the team being more comfortable meeting his demands a year later.

Round 1 - Pick 31

Alabama • Jr • 5'11" / 200 lbs

Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
39th
POSITION RNK
2nd

Truthfully, I am not sure that this is a move general manager Howie Roseman makes, but I love the player. Imagine Gibbs in an offense that gets defenses moving sideline to sideline. He is a nightmare matchup for opposing defenses because of how proficient he is as a pass-catcher. Miles Sanders is in the last year of his rookie deal and could be looking for a big pay day.

Round 1- Pick 32

Florida • Jr • 6'5" / 347 lbs

Projected Team
Buffalo
PROSPECT RNK
POSITION RNK

Buffalo looks for long-term stability along the offensive line with the selection of Torrence, who has fared well being re-united with position coach Rob Sale in Gainesville.

Killexams : Mock lava worlds will help the James Webb Space Telescope understand exoplanets

Scientists have modeled the molten surfaces of 16 different types of lava worlds in the laboratory, creating a catalog of basic types of rocky exoplanet that astronomers using the James Webb Space Telescope can reference to characterize alien worlds.

Some terrestrial exoplanets orbit so close to their stars that temperatures reach up to 5,400 degrees Fahrenheit (3,000 degrees Celsius), melting their rocky surfaces. For example, the planet 55 Cancri e is a super-Earth more than eight times as massive as our planet that orbits its star every 18 hours at a distance of about 1.4 million miles (2.3 million kilometers), reaching surface temperatures of 4,200 F (2,300 C) on its dayside and 2,500 F (1,370 C) on its night side. As a result, its entire surface is covered by lava.
