If you need a rundown of what happened in Rounds 1-3, click here. For a full list of who was drafted where, click here.

1. (Original: 52) LB Akeem Davis-Gaither, App State

Versatile linebacker with positive snaps as a pass rusher and as a run defender. Shockingly strong hands to be offensive line blocks. Spent 254 snaps in the slot, 315 on the defensive line and 308 in the box.

2. (Original: 61) T Hakeem Adeniji, Kansas

Left tackle with an athletic profile in the 75th percentile. Has the feet to hold up on an island, could turn into a nice developmental tackle on Day 3. Swing tackle early in his career.

3. (Original: 66) CB Reggie Robinson, Tulsa

92nd percentile athlete, so he definitely has the necessary footspeed to hold up on an island. Then he shows the hips and ball skills to make plays on the ball at the catch point.

4. (Original: 67) DB Amik Robertson, Louisiana Tech

Only 5-foot-8, but Robertson produced 14 interceptions in three seasons. Easy mover with quicks. Played just 31 slot snaps last year, but might make the full time move in the NFL.

5. (Original: 70) iOL Netane Muti, Fresno State

An absolute bully on the field. Destroy many defensive linemen in the running game and in pass protection. Unfortunate injury past likely a reason why he’s available on Day 3.

6. (Original: 78) EDGE Curtis Weaver, Boise State

Mike Renner of PFF is a massive fan of Weaver’s listing him as a top 30 prospect. Early in the season you see more movement, bend and pass rush juice. A late-season injury crippled his explosion.

7. (Original: 80) OL Cameron Clark, UNC Charlotte

A left tackle in college who could move inside in the NFL. Clark shows great hand placement and is active to get into a positional advantage to win his assignment. Allowed just five pressures last season, and logged nearly 3,000 snaps during his collegiate career.

8. (Original: 85) DB L’Jarius Sneed, Louisiana Tech

One of the top athletes at safety in this entire class (98th percentile) with 31.5-inch arms. With those measurements, it wouldn’t be a shock to see Sneed shift back to corner in the NFL. Last season he moved between both safety spots as well as the slot.

9. (Original: 86) DB Troy Pride, Notre Dame

Corner with 4.40 speed, which contributed to just four receptions of 20-plus yards allowed in two seasons. Played as an outside corner for the Irish.

10. (Original: 88) CB Josiah Scott, Michigan State

Smaller corner under 5-foot-10 with just 29.5-inch arms. Scott was asked to play outside corner for the Spartans and held up well considering those measurables. Expect to see his quick feet in the slot in the NFL.

0 Comments

As the countdown continues toward Super Bowl LVII, the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs are getting their game plans set. But while they go over their plays, the rest of America goes over their menus in preparation for the big day. When it comes to the Super Bowl, everything is always the best — the best teams, the best performers and, of course, the best food.

But how can you impress your party in the kitchen while showing support for your favorite team? Let’s take a look at some iconic food from each of the Super Bowl team cities to prepare for Super Bowl LVII.

Philadelphia Super Bowl food

Crabfries

Why have plain old fries when you could have crabfries? That’s exactly what Pete Ciarrocchi, the CEO of the legendary Philadelphia restaurant Chickie and Pete’s, said one day when creating this intriguing concoction.

While the name may be misleading, crabfries do not contain any actual crab, but rather a blend of spices and Old Bay seasoning that allow the dish to take on a subtle seafood flavor. Topped with a creamy, cheesy dipping sauce, the crinkle-cut fries are sure to take your taste buds to the next level.

Cheesesteak sloppy joes

It simply isn’t Philly without a cheesesteak. Keep it casual in your kitchen on Super Bowl Sunday with Katie Lee Biegel’s Philly Cheesesteak sloppy joes, an easy way to rep the Birds.

Can’t get enough of the cheesesteak? Bring some more Philly specials to the table with this cheesesteak dip, the perfect way to amp up your appetizer game and leave party guests feeling like they just took a trip to the City of Brotherly Love.

Water ice

Is the action of the game heating up? Cool down with a classic Philly treat, water ice. First originating in Bensalem, Pennsylvania in 1984, the icy dessert is now sold in over 600 stores nationwide. The original Rita’s Water Ice shop, however, still remains open for business.

You can even show a little extra passion for the Birds by whipping up this green apple variation, sure to leave you refreshed and ready for the Lombardi.

Kansas City Super Bowl food

Cheese slippers

If you’re looking for a classy, yet authentic appetizer to bring to the table, there’s no better fit than the cheese slipper. This ciabatta loaf baked with melty cheeses and topped with seasonal vegetables and herbs has Kansas City natives hooked.

While the bread is typically baked to perfection by local shops, test your own skill level with this gourmet slipper bread recipe that you can complete with the mouth-watering toppings of your choice.

BBQ burnt ends

It’s rare to hear the words Kansas City without barbeque following short after. If you’re looking to impress your guests with your Super Bowl food spread, get out to the grill and start showing off.

While many cities in America know how to cook up some excellent BBQ, the combination of the sweet flavors and mouth-watering sauce has made Kansas City a hub for barbeque lovers for decades.

BBQ burnt ends, while a bit time-consuming, are  well worth a little elbow grease. The dish is also one of the few in Kansas City with a distinct origin story. The meal first found its creation at Arthur Bryant’s Barbeque, a legendary African American restaurant in KC. Bryant originally made the burnt ends from the trimmings of pork belly, but since then, BBQ lovers have made incredible bites out of many styles of meat.

And if you’re feeling extra ambitious, try fixing up some classic Kansas City sides to pair with your entrée to perfection.

Chiefs chocolate chip cookies

While there is no specific dessert that defines the Heart of America, you can still show your Kansas City pride with these ever-colorful Chiefs chocolate chip cookies.

Make sure to have your food dye handy, because the red and yellow hue of these cookies are sure to show everyone whose side you are on.

Or, if you’re feeling artistic, design an eye-catching Chiefs jersey out of the fan-favorite rice krispie treats. Whether you make Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce or Chris Jones, you’ll have the tastiest Super Bowl jerseys around.

Why does the NFL use Roman numerals?

AFL and Chiefs founder Lamar Hunt proposed using Roman numerals for each Super Bowl to add pomp and gravitas to the game. Roman numerals were, unsurprisingly, used in ancient Rome as a number system. I stands for 1, V for 5, X for 10, L for 50 and C for 100. That’s right: In 2066, get ready for Super Bowl C.

Super Bowl V was the first to use Roman numerals. They were retroactively added to the Super Bowl II to IV logos and have been used each year since⁠ until 2016. For Super Bowl L, or 50, the NFL tried out 73 different logos before breaking down and using a plain old “50.”

The Roman numerals for this year’s big game, Super Bowl 57, are LVII.
